RECOGNITION OF WRESTLING.
The Portland wrestling tournament
Is over, and according to those who
saw the meet, the Oregon represen
tatives are deserving of the highest
praise, although due to the inexpe
rience of Shockley’s men, none of the
wrestlers sent from Eugene were
able to qualify in any of the
bouts. Nevertheless, the men werq
well trained, worked hard during the
training season, und must be given
credit for what they attempted rather
than what they accomplished. An
other year Oregon may be counted
on as an important factor in north
west wrestling circles.
But now it appears that wrestling
1b not a regular student activity, In
spite of the fact that It was accept
ed by the delegates from all the col
leges in the northwest last fall, as a
conference eveut on a par with other
collegiate sports already recognized.
This acceptance by the Oregon dele
gate has never been backed up by
the Oregon Student-Body, nor has
any movement been started to make
official the action taken in recogniz
The reason for this Is hard to dis
cern, unless it is sheer Indifference,
or, perhaps, Ignorance of the meth
ods necessary to incorporate a new
sport into the list of Student-Body
activities. This Introduction of a
new activity necessitates a change in
the constitution ouly to be affected
through amendment. But such an
amendment has never been Intro
Wrestling as a student activity has
every right to recognition on the part
of the Oregon students. Excellent
as a means of physical development.
It lacks many of the elements of risk
attendant on many of the majot
sports. It calls for the hardest kind
of physical work, and absolutel)
clean living, and, all things consid
ered, is certainly worthy to be classed
with the rest of the activities at Ore
Wrestling lias demonstrated its
worth. Now a little action on this
question would be the correct thing.
0>LI> WATElt FOR ATHLETES.
Complaints have been heard re
cently that football and track men
coming In from practice are unable
to take anything but a cold shower
at the close of their workout. This
not only Introduces the element of
discomfort, but Is also fraught with
danger of colds and consequent Im
paired efficiency for the athletes in
Is this condition due to the neg
lect of those In charge to maintain a 1
proper supply of hot water to i»e
available tor the users st the pow
ers, or is such a supply really United
by the capacity of this slant? if the
former, it can be easily jemedfcd. it
the latter, .would It qpt he tafcer to
the men who 'are working for -the ad
vancement of the University in ath
letic lines, that the number allowed
to use the showers during the after
noons should be limited?

University of Washington—It is ex
pected that before long a school of
fisheries will be established at the
University of Washington. If the
plans for one mature, the resulting
school will be the first of its kind
in the United States. It will be mod

this character at the University of
Tokio, Japan, and in institutions in
Sweden, France and Ireland.

missioner of fisheries, is urging

EUGENE RESIDENT SCORES
METHODS OF SANITATION
Swat the Fly Campaign and Sen
Hygiene Satired by Kip
Dr. Hodge’s anti-fly campaign
and Dr. Stuart’s lectures on sex hy
giene before the schools and the pa
rent teacher associations have evi
dently disturbed the peace of mind
of a citizen of Eugene. The follow
ing appeared in the Oregonian as a
protest from his pen:
“The worst thing is not the fellow
who holds commission under some
foolish law, but the fellow in civic
organization, university, high school,
no school who feels burdened to in
vestigate you and your backyard on
his own initiative and just for the
un of the thing.
“Excuse my dropping into rhyme.
It’s my habit when greatly excited.”
Uncle Silas’ Bewilderment.
“Why are the people running so,”
asked uncle in amaze.
To clean the town, to clean the
town!” the smiling drayman says.
“And do they scream and yell with
all the breath they’ve got?”
“They do, they do, when cleaning up
some other fellow's lot."
"Who is It leads the maddenin’
throng?" next Silas cries.
"It Is the great Prof. Jones," boy
Willie now replies.
'The school is closed, the books are
turned that stuff I Just despise—
And all have joined the civic host
and gone to fighting flies.”
"What makes the Mayor groan so
loud?” asks Silas in amaze.
"He’s on the rack, he’s on the rack!"
the day policeman says.
"Professor is a questionin’ Tm, he’s
got to answer straight.
"Why was the levy two bits above the
estimate, the estimate?”
"The ladles’ club’s a-gaspln’ and a
shudderin’!" is Uncle Silas’ cry.
'ITofessoress is disclosin’ to 'em!” Is
a rubberneck’s reply.
"She ’s explainin' all the ills of this
our mortal life.
The ignorance and the wrongs of
everybody and his wife."
1 have 58 other verses referring to
other lines of privately-assumed In
vestigation, but I really don’t wish
to monopolize your entire Issue.
