IS IT WORTH WHILE?
The passing of time after an acci
dent always tends to remove the sen
sibility to danger which that accident
has occasioned and to render society
callous to the circumstances which
have brought about such an occur
rence. The probability or even the
possibility of an untoward happening
which may result fatally is seldom
entertained with the seriousness
which such a contingency merits.
Several years ago, a University
man was drowned while shooting the
rapids at the head of the mill race.
The accident was entirely unforseen,
but was viewed with enough appre
hension afterward to cause the Ore
gon faculty to pass a resolution con
demning tlie pastime of shouting the
rapids, and seriously advising the
students to refrain from any such
risky form of entertainment.
Since that time, however, nothing
has come to pass to show the neees
ity of such a regulation. Time and
again, canoeists have passed through
what is probably the roughest water
in that portion of the Willamette be
tween Eugene and Portland, without
any apparent risk. The faculty reso
lution has come to be regarded ns
something which lias outgrown it.^

It Is not to be expected that as
in a n v students will be able to attend
the Multnomah Koine played lu Port
land Thursday, as have attended the
conference games played off earlier
in the season. This is not merely
bemuse of a comparative lack of in
terest in the contest, but aBo be- I
cause of the interference of the
Thanksgiving holidays when many of
the students return home and are
unable to make the trip to Portland.
But those who are in the metropo
lis on the day of the game should
make it a point to attend and to back
up the team for all that is In them.
The team needs support just as much
as in a conference game.

“The purpose of this committee,’’
said Vernon Motschenbacher, “is to
discuss matters, get views of all the
factions of the Student Body as a
guide to future plans and find the
cause of the evident lack of organi
zation. By getting representative
students together this way, we will ■
reach all the students and get their
ideas and it will serve to create a
definite public opinion on the reme- *
lies that are necessary.”
OREGANA WANTS PORTLAND
STUDENTS TO BACK BOOK
Manager Dorris Says Business
Firms There Refuse to
Manager lien Dorris, of the 1915 <
Oregana, returned Saturday morning
from Portland, where he lias been
soliciting advertising for the Ore
gana. He reports finding business J
conditions unfavorable, and business
men decidedly adverse to advertising .
In what they consider a doubtful me
dium at best. He said yesterday,
'‘They state, with some evidence of
truth, tha tthe rniverslty students
do not patronize them because of any
advertising they may place in cam
pus publications, but because they
happen to have the class of goods the
students desire or because they hap
pen to be handily located. if Ore- (
gon students fully appreciated the
help they could give the Oregana, by
asking merchants where they trade
whether they advertise in the Em- ^
erald or Oregana, and by insisting on
trading at stores which do support
these activities, their influence would
he sufficient to swing a large volume
of advertising which heretofore
these publications have been unable .
"it is a very easy matter for a sta
ll nt about to make a purchase to
suggest that the merchant should j
support the Oregana. and such a sug |
gestion would hear results very pleas- j
dig belli to the 1 9 1 a manager and to1
future managers. It lias just about
come to the time when the rniverslty (
Itself will have to.assunyi the burden !

increasing mm faster than the
financial condition of the class can
boar in case of any serious miscal
culation, or else the student body will
have to get behind the book and give
some assistance to the poor devil who
iias to finance it.”
