Itny Goodrich, youngest member of
the University Hoard of Regents has re
ceived the nst summons to that infinite
beyond of which we humans know so
little, but have faith to trust so much.
llis is the interesting story of success
through persistent striving and achieve
ment through unswerving determination,
lie came to the University as a student
in the fall of 1000, enrolled and went to
the gymnasium and asked for a suit of
moleskins, went out on the gridiron, and
there as a freshman proeeeled to make
good as a halfback and carved his name
in the hall of athletic fame of the Uni
versity. A peculiar, nevertheless fitting
climax to his athletic record, came in
tlie recent victory of the Varsity over
Pennsylvania in sunny California. When
the boys returned and were given that
rousing reception which they will never
forget, Mr. Goodrich was on the plat
form to welcome them and sing their
glories. Ills face radiated the happi
ness he felt in their achievement, not
merely because they were Oregon hoys
who had conquered, lie had a far deep
er interest at. heart. Only a few years
before he had been one of them, lie,
too, lntd been a member of a mighty and
victorious team that had journeyed into
the southland and conquered. That was
November It), 1000, when the. California
heroes were humbled by the Varsity 2-0,
ami when the conquerors returned it was
to receive a reception such as the boys
of this year were accorded. lie knew
what the welcome meant. Time had in
its transitory flight simply transferred
him from the active ranks hut had not
lessened the buoyancy of his heart in
its youthful activities.
Through the seasons of* 1000-1-2-3 he
played. Then in the spring of 1003 when
the students lmd come to realize his worth
they gave him the greatest reward they
could offer. He was chosen student body
These achievements in his undergrad
uate days are but a simple parallel to his
success when he had entered upon tin
sterner duties of life and cast himsell
into the maelstrom of human activity

ere ninny years had passed he was stand
ing on the crest of that hill of life when
lie could see the golden glow of the fu

God, in his wisdom, saw fit to take bin
and he now lives only as a memory. Yei
we can now say in tlie words of Him
truly uud sincerely, “Well done thoi
good and faithful servant.”
And bowing our heads we murmur
‘ Thy Will bo Done.”
Over the state, and, in fact clear froir
the East, conies the indignation felt h.i
keen, capable business men who con
fidently assert their right to judge tin
value of the University school of com
taerce. These men are aroused at whu
they term the “misguided seal*’ of tin
legislative committee which recently re
turned an adverse report to the legisla
ftire on the University and the school o
commerce in particular.
It is interesting to note the fine tes
timonials that come rolling in to l»oai
1». W. Morton, who lias served tin
school so faithfully. Only yesterday In
received a letter from a Willamette till
ley town on the west side asking tin
assignment of stndenta to that place ti
audit the cit.v'a books. The letter umk
iug the mj.test was from the towu :
In another letter yesterday from Mr.
Summons, president of the American In
stitute of Bankers, Mr. Sammons told of
the fight the business men were making
foi the support of the school. The Port
land Association of Credit Men speaks
ac follows:
“As credit men, we are all aware that
the school of commerce connected with
the University of Oregon at Eugene has
been and is of great value, not only to
(he business men but the entire state of
< 'regon. Graduating better business
men, turning out young men who really
know something about business to take
their places as retailers and wholesalers
in this state augurs for greater pros
perity. It. means safer and better credit
conditions and ‘whatever conduces to the
improvement of credit conditions ad
vantages not only those engaged in com
merce but all men whose lives are touch
ed by it at any point.’ ”
With such testimonials ns these tlcre
can be no fear of the legislature rush
ing into some action before careful con

meet all the demands. A word of com
mendation is due the fraternities for
their essential democracy, and for their
loyal attitude in placing the welfare of
(lie University before all other interests.
The unity and strength of the University
has largely resulted front tho conscious
effort made by all the students to main- i
tain a generous spirit of democratic co
operation and to make the good fellow
si ip of the campus the outstanding fea
ture of college life.
"I want again to thank the students,
end to express the thanks of the faculty,
for their fine spirit of cooperation on
the occasion of the reception extended
to the legislature, and for the splendid
showing made by them on that day. It
ought to bring results, and we all confi
dently expect it will.”
Campus Problem to Come Before Stu
dent Council.
The problem of keeping people off
thi' grass has become so urgent that it is
to tie brought up at the Student Coun
cil meeting tomorrow night and according
to Nick Jaurcguy, student body president,
certain persons will bo made responsible
for the prevention of trespassing.
“We do need a path from the library
ti 1 toady," said A. 11. Sweetser, pro
fessor of botany, “hut in many cases the
students walk along the edge of the
path and thus kill the grass when they
might just ns well walk in the path.
Now is the worst time of the year, too,
as the ground is soft and the grass is
tender and consequently easily killed,”
11. M. Fisher, superintendent of the
grounds, said that at first lie was able
to speak to the trespassers personally
but with the growth of the University
this became impossible ami that it is
now up to the students to preserve the
lawns of the campus.

yon of Amona will be on next Thurslay.

law reviews and the law quarterly re
views. Others are to be added from
time to time.

Series of Community Contests
Planned by University.
Opportunity of Experience to
Students Offered in
Novel System.
At the dose of the present debating
gtason in May the University will begin
,i series of community debates. This has
been done by O. A. C. for a number of
years and has proven successful. Any
town having a Y. M. C. A. or Com
mercial club team will find a Varsity
team ready to meet them.
The advantages of this new system
are two-fold according to Prof. K. W.
Prescott. It will give the students an
opportunity to get forensic experience
outside of the regular league work and
it will aid the various communities to
get in touch with the University and
make use of the Extension department’s
library and research assistance.
At first the University teams will be
rather limited in the number of ques
tions they can cover but by next year
Prof. Prescott expects to have students
competent to handle any question. As the J
regular Varsity debaters are too few in
number to take charge of these com
munity debates the new policy will pro
vide experience for many students who
would otherwise he limited to tryouts.
This policy is a part of the Univer
sity’s endeavor to make the institution of
general service to the people over the
entire state and at the same time to
bring the college students into closer re
lation with the needs and desires of
Oregon communities.
