Oregon Spirit Vindicated.
LAST NIGHT’S rally vindicated Oregon .and Oregon Spirit.
However loath we are to use superlatives, it is more than evident
that Oregon Spirit is not on the decline nor is it slumbering. It
is at its highest pitch; it is a dominant force in the life of the insti
tution. What effect “pep” has on football is a mooted issue, but
it can be safely said that victory—if victory comes—will not be
due to team-work alone, but to college-work. An analysis of Oregon
Spirit reveals it to be dormant when the attitude of the campus is
complaissant and non-pepified, but just as soon as the rooters of
.ae college get together, not in a matter-of-fact way, but with a
common bond of sympathy there arises that mysterious phenomena
which has come to be called Oregon Spirit, it is created when
the student body in a time of crisis feels a responsibility for the
success of the team.
If this spirit can be maintained—if the campus can get the
idea that as a group it is responsible for the showing that Ore
gon makes in its various activities, then there need be no fear ol
defeat. Where there is spirit ultimate victory is inevitable.
„ It Can Be Done.
SOME OF Oregon’s boosting statisticians have been accredit
ed with the statement that 10,000 people will be on the campus
on November 20, which is Home-Coming day and incidentally the
time of the biggest game of the year. The Emerald is naturally
an optimistic institution, but statistics this year have been in many
cases rash boosting. The figure set for Home-coming day is not
beyond reason, however. The quesion is can Oregon make good?
Can 10,000 people be attracted to the Home-coming attractions.
We believe that it can be done, but not without a lot of conscien
tious work on the part of every student and individual connected
with the University. Every student can add to the advertising
campaign his little iota by boosting in the letters written home, to
friends, to sweethearts whatever the case may be. The only way
that Home-coming day can be a success is by every one interested
entering into the plans with vim.
A New Movement.
THERE IS A movement on foot to democratize the machin
ery of student government. The student council discussed with
unanimous favor at its last meeting the proposition of populariz
ing the sessions of the student legislature. As a matter of fact the
student council should have as large an attendance as student body
meetings, for it is the work of this body that guides the proced
ure of the student meetings. The ideal of the student council is
to act as the doctor and feel the pulse of the student politic. How
much more effective would be the work of this body if it became
the forum of general student debate on questions of student in
terest and concern?
The editor has just been reminded again that the Mr. Rey
nolds who admits that he came to Eugene "and invited Hoskins to
go over to the Oregon Agricultural College and look the institu
tion over before he finally decided what school to attend this year,’
is not the Mr. Reynolds of the Oregon Agricultural College facul
ty. Editorially in its issue of October 2, the Emerald has already
corrected this mistake. It reiterates, if reiteration is necessary,
that the confusion of parties was unintentional but unavoidable
under the conditions.
