IT IS ENDED.
The sun goes down with this issue of
The Emerald and we cross tho bar—
to enter on the still rougher voyage,
which tritely conceded by the college grad
who has been through the gaff—to cross
the bar into the cruel cold world.
In retrospect we see many things ac
complished the past year and the in
auguration of many others, all motived
by earnest belief they were for the best
interests of the student body. As was the
policy last year, so has The Emerald
endeavored to uphold the policy this year
—one of militancy. The absolute inde
pendence of organizations was maintain
ed in toto. We bowed to no class, clique
or individual. it has cost us many
friends—if such they may he counted
friends. We have sacrificed friendly re
lationships with others to maintain the
standard of The Emerald ns an indepen
dent student body organ. We do not re
gret any of it. We are sorry for the an
tagonisms, but they were antagonisms of
necessity aud not of choice.
The year lias been a panorama of di
versified activity such as never before
witnessed in the history of the institu
tion. From a successful football season
that ended with the glorious victory over
Pnnsylvania on the l’asudena Field New
Years Day, 14 to 0, we plunged into a
second semester that saw the University
grow into a rollicking lusty youngster
of over a thousand student body. Still
later in April saw the tremendous war
uphenvnl and the resulting demoraliza
tion of intercollegiate athletics, the de
cimation of the student body by enlist
ment for farm, army and navy, and the
disorganization of class work by the tense
strain of the moments. Then as a finale
to the year we have witnessed the change
in commencement plans, hte cancellation
of the commencement play, the setting tip
a week ahead of the underclass examin
ations and the dismissal of the University
term one week early.
Truly it Iuih been a diversified year.
How it has been possible to keep a bal
ance and poise through It all and keep
the student body the loyal body of Ore
gon students imbued with the great Old
Oregon Spirit that we believe lias been
maintuiued is only the result of the great
growth of responsibility on the campus
and the evolution toward student self
government. But now the vacation comes.
Whatever may happen during the in
terim of three months, the old Oregon
Spirit must never be allowed to lag.
Whatever our mistakes we must always
have Oregon Spirit.
What may happen before next Septem
ber is difficult to predict. War's ac
tivities may have ceased and they may
have been intensified. But some of us
leave not to return again as undergrad
uates. We The Emerald sing today our
The end is here.
To the members of his staff who were
his loyal co-workers during the year and
who so faithfully attended to their duties
and helped in the making of what the
editor believes has been r successful year,
the editor wants to acknowledge his
grateful appreciation and wisli them good
luck in their future work.

Aint we the cut-ups though?
