OREGON SPIRIT is a queer commixture of the irrationa
with the sporadic. At least that is our conclusion after witnes
sing and participating in the “pepless pepfest” Sunday evening
when a mere hand l ull of students congregated at the depot, ant
who knows where the rest congregated, for the purpose of welcom
ing the victorious football team to the fold.
Two weeks ago there was a record-breaking rally at the de
pot to cheer a badly-beaten team. The members of the team a
that time objected to the exuberance on the ground that they hac
not yet deserved such a reception. Of course they deserved th<
reception, and there always should be a hearty welcome extendec
to the team whether it is in defeat or in victory.
But Sunday night when the team rolled into town expecting
some kind of a demonstration, they could not see the spirit foi
And without beating blindly about the bush, we will lay the
blame where it belongs, 't he street parade was a measly affair
But on the side walks in majesty were the “queeners”, a majoritj
of which were freshmen. And some of these “piggers”, scenting
trouble, retreated to the darker side streets where they coulc
evade the taunts of the serpentiners.
Who is to blame? In the first place the spiritless spirits
who choose to ‘ queen” at times when tradition decrees tha'
"queening” be rigorously tabooed; and secondly, we blame th<
women of the University, who unintentionally kill the spirit bj
making dates. We do not condemn making dates on these rallj
nights, but we do say that both parties of the couple can at leas
bear the absence of one from the other during the time it takes
the marchers to reach 1 lth. and Willamette streets. They car
join each other at that point. Surely the women can walk tin
lew blocks unpigged.
We believe tins is enough to bring the point home, but some
thing occurred that night which makes a fine ideal. One of thi
students escorted his mother to the depot to see the “doings.” His
mother had just come to visit her son the day before. When thi
line started up the street, the mother heard the calls of the boys
for more “pep.” Although her stay with her son was limited t(
a few hours she pushed him into the line, and with a proud smilt
on her face she walked up tin street and was rejoined by him a
the point of dispersal.
That’s what we call real spirit—real Oregon Spirit if there is
such a thing. We urge that the women of the University boycot
all pigging during the serpentine.
THERE SEEMS to he* a well-defined sentiment about th<
campus for an open library. Since our first editorial on the sub
ject numerous individuals—people who would be least expected
have expressed themselves as heartily in favor of the plan: es
peeially of opening the library on Saturday nights. It seems tha
there are quite a number of students who work on Saturday an<
their only chance to use the library is in the evening.
Finances is to be considered in such a move and no doubt th<
board of regents will take that into consideration. Since this i;
ostensibly one of the important considerations, we might sugges
a possible means of economy in library administration, whicl
might in itself pay for the added expense which an open librar:
would cause. And that is the matter of keeping open when then
is or should be no demand for the library. During athletic game;
the library is open; few students use the library then; and it i;
assumed that some of the library staff would rather go to a foot
ball game than to keep open for a few students who could stud}
just as well at other times, and who are needed on the field.
On the other hand an open library on Friday and Saturday
nights would, we think, be appreciated and used in this time ot n<
dances and a ten per cent, stiffening up of the curriculum.
THE AETERMATII of the whole legislation along regulator}
lines is that the hoi polloi of students have again been stung. Foi
years there has been an uprising and agitation for more campiu
games in all athletic branches. For the purpose of insuring mort
campus games, more spirit and, incidentally, more money, the stu
dent ticket was invented at three dollars per, for the ostensible
purpose of making it more economical tor students to attend home
contests, but now that basketball has received the ban, it seem!
that student tickets were invented to waylay the unwily student.
Six games of basketball are now cancelled from the student
ticket, and what more remains? Only the ticket!
In the spirit of the athletic measures just passed by the fac
ulty we modestly recommend that article 111. be rapidly put int(
action. This article provides that "gate receipts should be sub
ordinated as a factor in intercollegiate athletics.

Mr. Perfect has had 16 years’ ex

band work here, he plans to have
regular students, and will later or

the neighboring towns.
