The custom was inaugurated last year
of making the date of the biggest foot
ball game; on the campus the day for the
homecoming of the grads. Not alone
was this day designed as homecoming for
the grads but an occasion which would
be an acceptable and propitious time
for all friends to make the campus and
classrooms a visit.
It is a^ good stunt-—this homecoming
day—and the action of the student coun
cil yesterday in making the date of the
Oregon-Washington game this year the
red letted day was well taken. But
the undertaking is fraught with grave
responsibilities, and the committee in
whose hands the success or failure of
this occasion rests will have to ship
through some stormy waters to secure
the success achieved last year.
But after all the success of the day
lies not so much in the personell of the
committee ns it does in the active co
operation of every student registered
in the University with the committee.
This co-opyntion put into plain language
is nothing more nor less than showing
the “Oregon Spirit.” This can be done
by contributing ideas, working out pub
licity schemes, volunteering services for
routine work and entertaining. It is
in other words being a walking dele
gate for the student body labor union.
Let there be no crabs; for as yet
there have been no ruins and there is
little water for floating.
TO |THE REPORTERS.
If we went around with 120 pound#
pressure of isteam up and rendy to blow
off at the least provocation we might
have a lot of nnughty words to sny to
our staff reporters. But just a word
or two and let the wise read!
Don’t let the editor or his assistants
play tag with you in order to get nn
assignment. | Make yourself responsible
for the confidence placed in you.
There is a very large staff now and
assignments beginning with next Mon
day will be given out daily. Splendid
interest has been shown but there is
too much proneness to make excuses.
Of course Iraltd excuses are always
acceptable. But be like that admirable
worker we have in raind who went to get
a story und finding it had not broken
pounced on another unassigned. That
is the kind of a staff of reporters we
want and the kind when the day of reok
onig comes—that %day when the staff
will be announced at the head of the
editorial columns—who get the rewards
their ambitouti work deserve#.
YELL LEADER MATERIAL NEED
In a short time now the yell lender
will be king. ]!t should be so.
The advisory committee has been
chosen which will act as a nominating
committee, deligible men will be given
the “once-over” and their proclivities for
the strenuous job of leading the rooters
i The powers of this committee are
not autocratic. But a selection from the
field of candidates must b^ made. If
the field wf candidates as (limited,
necessarily the selection is limited.
But the field of candidates should not
be limited. There should be aspirants
out for the job galore. It is a big job.
It is a man’s job. And a good part ol
the time it is a slave’s job. But who
ever announces himself should have the
confidence of the student body—he
should have a “drag” that will get the
rooters out. And he should have a
“drag” that will put the rooters be
hind him to a man in order to put the
necessary "punch” into the rooting.
Mux H. Sommer, esteemed editor oi
the Emerald last year, and whose facile
and prolific pen gave to the Emerald
readers such militant and aggressive
editorials, writes his good wishes from
Portland. He is now assistant real
estate and financial editor of the Port

eving no small success.
