COURAGE AND COURTESY.
“Courage and courtesy are the elements
of Oregon Spirit,” declared President
Campbell at assembly Inst Wednesday.
And this spirit is the snme on the day
of a big game, but it is more intense.
This means that today the whole stu
dent body of the University is behind
the Oregon team to beat Washington.
The team has the courage to fight, and
fight unrelentingly, und the rooters have
the courage and the determination to
drain their voices down to the rock bot
tom of unintelligible hoarseness. We’re
going to beat Dobie, but we are going
to be courteous gentlemen and good
The students of Oregon want every
Washington visitor to know that he
is welcome, that to him goes out all the
hospitality and warm fellowship that col
lege men can give. Our guests from
the north will eat with us at the lunch
eon on the campus and go to the Home
coming dance in the evening. We want
to be witli them, to know them better.
Out on Kincaid field the rooters of the
two Universities will be separated, and
the heart’s desires of the two for the
time will bo opposed.
The ideals of the University of Wash
ington anil the ideals of the University
of Oregon are practically the same high
American principles. Up there the stu
dents take an oath of loyalty to their
Alma Mater, here wo pledge allegiance
to our state. It amount!; to the snme
The University lias no quarrel with the
students of Washington; they are our
friends. It is perhaps a trite phrase,
but the interests of the two sehools at
this time are friendly rivalry.
Shake, Washington; we’re out to bent

ALMA MATER—WHAT DOES IT
We sing and eheer our "Alma Mater."
Those words are the characteristics of
one of the humorous conventionalities of
college men in later years. We sing
and cheer of Alma Mater, but how many
of us know the real meaning of those
words? They have come down to Uni
versity men and women today as a sort
of traditional heritage from former
generations who have lived in the col
lege halls of this country from one end
to another and from the old college of
William and Mary to our great modern
universities. They are relic of the days
when to go to college was to take Greek
and Philosophy. The words have come
to us and we honor them. We speuk
reverently of Alma Mater and have a
hazy notion that the expression means
some kind of mother. Have we ever
stopped to think of what they really
mean? Translated, the words are “Fos
It is then to our fostering mother
that we raise our faces and voices, that
we sing and shout. To her who has
adopted us for four of the best years of
our lives, we, the college students of this
country, continually acknowledge our ap
preciation in the loving name of Alma
Muter—fostering mother. J. D. G.
“What profiteth a man if he gain un
limited knowledge but weareth out his
owu soul?” is the query that comes from
one of the seniors iu an unsigned “kick”
to the Emerald.
Verily, a serious predicament.
Had this come, from any other source, 1
we would be inclined to doubt the au
thenticity of the statement. But a senior
says so and a senior knows. Imagine, if
you can, the mental picture that is drawn
from this most distressing condition.
Sometime in the dim past, this portion
of M7 unpretentiously, no doubt, wrig
gled up to the window in the Administra
tion building, separated himself from his
hard earned lucre and thus placed an
other name upon the books of the Uni
versity. All was well, lie was in the
blossom of youth; his mind an unexplor
ed marsh. Three years of toil. Work on
bonfires; work on books; work on co

eds, everything was work. In this mad
pursuit, everything was sacrificed.
Now that the goal is in sight, the
truck-horse work done, and nothing left
to do but “pick the grapes,” he finds no
solace. He does but wonder.
I feel badly, too, in fact—
I think I’ll write a little verse
It surely won’t make you feel worse
Than this despondent tale, I’ve told
’Bout gaining knowledge and losing
eoul.” M. N.

ECHO JUNE ZAHL
Dobie had a little goat,
lie nourished it with care,
He fed it on psychology—
And thought it was a bear.
Bez—he got this little goat,
And with a 10 foot rule
Found ’twas not a bear at all
But only just plain bull.
There’s Villard, vine-covered, brilliant—
Memories come flooding fast of that
There’ll be joy and health and laughter,
In the sunshine’s meanest ray—
For it’s Alumnus, Alumni,
Come on Alums—let’e shout, lets sing
“Reunion” i\ll the way.
What matter cares, or tales of woe?
It’s thisrfhe world must needs to know—
It’s Alumnus, Alumni,
Well, I’ll see you at the eat-fest,
At the bennery I’ll '.tand
With roast-beef in the back ground
And pickles near at hnnd.
I’ll juggle beans aoandonly
To music of the band.
Let’s eat, drink and be merry—
Tomorrow? You understand.
