Anent thr Oregon-Wnshington game!
It wag a hart! fought contest Saturday.
The rooting was fine. The field was
rotten; ditto the weather. The band—
the newly uniformed musicians—was the
best ever (Perfect by the way). The
spirit; it bubbled and gurgled, and the
pent uj) tension of the tie-game shot sky
ward with the final crack of the pistol,
and Monday the campus paths were trod
by "peepless” wanderers.
But the hardest game is coming Satur
day. Altogether now in a rejuvenation
for that Washington Stnte College con
test in Portland!
AS TO THE ATHLETIC FIELD.
No longer can the University stuge
campus games of such big league calibre
as the Saturday affair on such a woeful
field and cpmo out with a fat pocket
book. It was a crime to match such
two tennis as the Varsity and the Uni
versity of Washington and then demand
that they play on such a field as Kincaid
was Saturday. With mud inches deep
and clinging to the cleats like lead, the
speed of the players was slackened,
footing made insecure, passing of the
ball impossible nud good playing but a
dream of the fancy.
That is as the players were concerned.
As to the seating facilities, they too were
wholly inadequate to the needs. A year
ago itO(K) people poured into Eugene to
witness that famous 0-0 game between
Oregon Agricultural college and the Uni
versity; the first annual homecoming
day. Nine thousand spectators sat in
the rain and dyed their skins the colors
of their clothes. Nine thousand angry fans
left the field vowing never again! And
sure enough this homecoming saw a
much scantier crowd on hand than there
was lust year.
Unless there is a new field provided—
a field that can be soaked from morn
till night and then be ready for playing
—and seating facilities the full length
of the lines and sheltered from the rains
the management had better stage no big
games for Eugene next year. For if such i
contests are scheduled with the present
conditions unchanged the crowd next
year will be smaller than the one this
year and ere long that old nursery rhyme
of "nobody came but a big fat darky"
will be applicable.
For some time now the Board of Regents
have promised changes. A new field
was planned. But they have practiced
diligently on hesitation and sidestepping
and to date the same antiquated, ante
dated field equipment is the only excuse
for nothing better. It is high time the
Associated Students of the University
of Oregon stepped in and did something, j
NOW IS THE TIME.
On Saturday. November 11, the foot
ball team will meet the eleven from the
University of Oregon in the hardest game
of the year. On the remits of this con
test will depend Washington State’s
chance of meeting Pennsylvania on New
Year’s day. The game will be played
on foreign soil, at Portland, the hotbed

this encouragement helped. There have
been timid suggestions around the cam

should go to the Oregon game. Further,

1. M. GETS 255 JOBS
Employment Department Se
cures Positions for Students
Boys Are Given Many Kinds of
Work; One Even Did
The University Y. M. C. A. employ
ment department has secured 255 jobs
for students since September 12. These
jobs will net the students working by
the end of the year about $2,405.05.
Some of the jobs have been only tem
porary but a great many of them have
been permanent, according to Secretary
J. I>. Foster of the Y. M. C. A.
The kind of work provided includes
almost everything in the lino of odd
jobs. Putting in wood gave 55 men an
opportunity to earn money toward their
expenses. One can served punch, an
other sewed, while others labored with
pick and shovel.
Other kinds of work secured through
the department were splitting wood,
keeping books, stenography, washing
windows, cleaning houses, unloading cars,
taking tickets, waxing floors, soliciting
advertising, pitching hay, washing dishes,
picking fruit, carpentering, distributing
window cards, delivering parcels, wash
ing autos, taking care of a garde- and
waiting on tables. ”
"No fee is charged for getting the
men for the jobs," said Secretary Fos
ter, "the students need the work and
the V. M. C. A. is here to help the
students.” l.ast year during the entire
year 2NS positions were secured through
the Y. M. l\ A„ and already 255 jobs
have been filled by students through the
Y. M. C. A.
Cards advertising the employment
agency are being distributed around the
city and efforts are being made by the
association to furnish all the students
who want work with the necessary jobs.

Professor Thacher Writes Two
“Hello Lane” and “Let’s Go,
Boys, Let’s Go,’’ Are
Two new Oregon songs have come
fresh from the pen of Professor W. F.
G. Thacher. They are alive with the
breath of Oregon spirit.
“Hello Lane,” a waltz song, inspired
by our tradition of “hello lane,” will
make its debut with the women’s glee
club some time soon.
“Let’s go, boys, let’s go” will do the
heart of the rooter good. It glows with
enthusiasm. It radiates pep.
"I haven’t heard the music yet, but the
words are absolutely great,” says Dean
Lyman. “We are making every effort
to get them in shape so we can present
them to the students as quickly as pos
If you happen to pass as you’re going to
At Deady or old Villard,
He sure that you greet each student you
In the manner they all regard.
The lads and the lasses are going to
They’re passing on “Hello Lane.”
Whether in sunshine or rain,
It’s the one friendly greeting they use as
Don’t ask "How are. you?” or “How do
Or just nod your head and smile;
That isn’t the way they do, but they say
“Hello” in the good old style.
There’s a comradeship in it you feel in a
It brightens each hour of the day.
He you senior or soph, or even a prof.,
You cheer up and smile when they
When you’re an old “grad” and your
heart’s kind o’ sad
With the thots of the days that were
Your eyes fill with tears as you turn
back the years,
And you’d give half your life just to
Let’s Go, Boys, Let’s Go.
Oregon’s a grand old state as everybody
She has a University where everybody
And down there they play football; play
a game that’s right,
With courage and with skill, boys, and
always “ ’at old fight.”
So here's a song for the team, boys,
that’s out there on the field.
Fighting hard to win that game—we
know they’ll never yield.
We’re with you heart and soul, boys, for
the love of U. of O.
So all together—ready now—“let's go,
boys, let’s go.”
The green and yellow that you wear are
colors we uphold.
Today they're floating high and free;
they'll triumph ns of old.
Hut, win or lose, we’re loyal to the team
that wears the “O.”
There’s nothing that can stop them,
when the eaptaiu says: “Let’s go.”
