BUSINESS MANAGER.FUOYD C, WSSTKHFIELD
Manager's nnd Editor's Phone—S41.
AN ALL-TOO-MERCENARY, merciless code of business
ethics is controlling matters at the University of Oregon, which
seems entirely out of keeping with the Oregon Spirit.
The die was cast when the captain of this year’s football team
was not allowed to take the trip to Los Angeles. True, he was in
capacitated for the season, because of his strenuous services last
year. Despite his physical incapacity to play football, the doughty
captain has been out on the field every night and what he lacked
in fitness he more than made up in a true display of Oregon
Yet for a few measly dollars, the hero of three football sea
sons and the martyr of this season has been denied the privilege of
accompanying his team on one of the choice trips. His heart is
with the team, he has worked night after night with the team, he
has instilled some of his own sterling spirit into the team; but it
was too expensive for him to make the trip. We maintain that this
is a disgraceful display of almighty-dollar worship.
Nor is this all. The Emerald has started knocking, why not
continue when there are numerous matters that show the same
lack of principle. The student manager was also denied a trip that
had been promised him. lie has worked steadfastly and conscien
tiously at his job. Tackmen are ready to train for a hard season,
but the facilities are lacking. We also understand that last year’s
trackmen and baseball men who earned their covetted “0” are
still patiently waiting for their sweaters. Men who earned Oregon
blankets are blanketless. Is all of this true? If so, why?
We are well aware of the fact that Oregon is not rolling in
wealth, we know that the European war has cut off the supplies
of dyes necessary for blankets, but we are certain that somewhere
—and not far off either—there is sufficient dye and money to re
ward service to Oregon.
This is what is called procrastination. Suppose the trackmen,
the football players, the baseball men procrastinated in practice
and training—we wonder where Oregon would rank in athletics.
In the spirit of the recent faculty athletic rulings we suggest that
monetary matters be made secondary to such matters as these. In
the meantime we urge action—action, unfettered by too mercen
ary a spirit, which is not in harmony with student sentiment.
No Chance for Negotiations.
AGAIN WE hear from Portland papers that Multnomah club
has been indulging in “a little unofficial negotiating” toward hav
ing the annual championship football battle between O. A. C. and
Oregon played in Portland.
Of the Aggies’ attitude toward such machinations we have
nothing conclusive except their antagonism last year. Be that as
But Oregon is strictly against any such negotiations. Last
year demonstrated that fact very forcibly, and if needs be it can
be demonstrated again this year; only stronger.
Campus games are rare, inconsequential and far between.
The yearly classical is the life of football on the campus. Begin
ning with this year a new feature will be added to the big day and
that is Home-Coming festivities, which will fasten the game to the
campus more than ever.
Multnomah may indulge in all the unofficial negotiating she
cares to, but we would give them a kindly hint that their effort is
wasted. This stand has been re-enforced by the recent faculty rul
ing which orients the financial matter more than ever. And fin
ancial arguments are all that Multnomah can make. If dates are
arranged for games with the California universities next year they
will probably go to Portland.
But as for the Oregon classic—we say, in the name of student
The Library Is Open.
THE LIHGAh'} was open tonight for the first time in his
tory—open until 10:00 p. m. to accomodate the studious students
—and the library was empty. Open but not used. The Emerald
started the campaign for an open library after many students had
expressed a need for the additional facilities. If the library is not
used on Friday night the chances are that it will not remain open.
If, on the other hand, the Friday nights prove popular, Saturday
opening is only a matter of time. At present the library is open
every day from 7:15 until 10:00 p. m., except Saturdays and Sun
days. On Saturdays the library is open as usual from 8:00 a. m.
until 0:00 p. m. Sunday is the day of rest, but Friday night is a
good time for study.

Eugene. Ore.. Nov. i. 1*115,
I'o the Editor of The Emerald: 1
have hern told that there is feeling on
the pan of some of the students that the
special athletic committee had in mind
the gradual abolition of all inter-colle
-iate sports. This is entirely incorrect,
as such action was not even discussed by
the committee. The suspension of in
tercollegiate basketball for a time is an
experiment to see whether intra-mural
basketball cannot be extended to a much
greater number of men than ever before,
with the coaches free from the intereol
le. ate games and aide to give their
whole time to organizing and dirooting
eontests between the various classes,
departments, clubs and fraternities.
Much intramural basketball by the
manj instead of intercollegiate basket
dl b\ the few is the thing which the
faculty wants to give a fair trial.
