Writing to friends at the University,
(Jiflord Sevits, of last year’s fresh
man class, describes life with the
members of .the Second Company, C.
A. C., as follows:
'Varsity Well Represented
.‘Do you realize that, as tiie dear
old Alma Mater opens her arms this
fall to the many sons and daughters of
Oregon, between 50 and 70 of the lead
ing inen of former years are at this
post training in the science of war?
The Second Company from Eugene,
alone, has 52 men from, the University,
and a large number have been detailed
to various departments of the head
quarters as well as those who have
become sergeants, master gunners,
and electricians on the non-commi:
i raining unanges aspect
‘'That the boys in camp would all
like to bo back on the old campus
for another year’s University life, is
evidenced by the many expressions
that are heard in the tents today, but
that any of them l'eels that urge more
deeply than ho does the stupendous
responsibilities placed upon him by
tliQ greatness of the hour, is impossi
ble. During these two short months
a great change has taken place in the
mental attitude of wo embryo soldiers.
Beginning witli a very vague under
standing of what real military life is
and feeling moral of an enthusiasm of
youth toward the undertaking than
of real patriotism, wo have uncon
sciously passed through an epic of
sublime importance. We are eager
for mil action, we are anxious to
become ofllctent soldiers, wo are am
bitious to bring this dreadful war to
a close. The seriousness of our gov
ernment's undertaking, I believe, is
better gained in the actual process of
training for the groat struggle than
in the ordinary pursuits of civil life.
Wo soldiers are denied the pleasures
of society, as wo have known them
previously. Although Uncle Sam pro
vides for our physical wants, them is
a sacrifice to lie made in training to
bo a soldier in such times as these.
Oregon Songs Cheer
“But in spite of the privileges we
are denied, it would lie dillleult indeed
to find a more thoroughly Jovial group
of men than we are. At dusk, when
the hig. golden sun goes to rest in the
I*aciilc and the humid quiet of the
seacoast atmosphere creeps over the
row of brown tents, the plunk of a
ukulele soon brings the boys together
and the strains of ‘Mighty Oregon,’
the old Mill Ituce song, and many oth
ers thrill the heart until tattoo is
sounded and the lights go out.
"Oregon Spirit” Will Win
"The routine duties of lh(' day, con
sisting of drill and other forms of fa
tigue, are entered Into with appetiz
ing interest, so characteristic of the
old Oregon Spirit. II has been said
by our own Hugo Hozdek, ‘that the
Oregon Spirit’ can win a football game.
We believe that Oregon Spirit can
win this war.
Cossnun Conches Football
“Tills evening, as I am laboriously
doling out tliis bit of information, ‘Big
Jim’ Uossinan is rounding bis, cohorts
into shape for the coming football
championship contest of Koft Stevens
Hardly a man in Ids lineup has not
received pointers in manipulating the
pigskin either under the able eve of
Coach Be/.’ or the Kugeno high school
trainer. Besides the players, the See
ond Company boasts a healthy bunch
of rooters. Everything considered, we
expect to take all comers into camp
on the gridiron. While we do so, we
will take a mental Journey back to old
Kincaid field and revive again the
scenes that have held the campus
gripped with excitement. We send
our compliments to Coach Bezdek, and
may his glory and that of Oregon nev
er fade. 0
"Camp life is conducive to imagin
ative thinking. Every squa$ tent has
its miniature library. The co-opera
tion of the University of Oregon libra
ry with other literary recreation is
greatly appreciated. Most of the boys
expect to take up correspondence stu
dy if we remain at this post during
the winter. Plenty of time for read
ing and concentrated study is allowed
us after other duties are performed.
"Numerous friends and relatives!
have visited our camp and brightened
our life here during the past two
months. The many University stu
dents living at Astoria and Portland
have dropped in upon us occasionally.
Altogether, our short stay here has
been novel and interesting.
All Hearts With Oregon
“ ‘Where do we go from here, boys,
where do we go from here?’ is the fa
vorite ditty in camp just now. Nobody
seems inclined to answer the question
as to our destination, however. Wher
ever we go, we are sure of the co
operation and sympathy of the stu
dents of the University of Oregon.
Our uppermost wish is that this year
will be another added to the success
ful career of our Alma Mater. We
hope for a vigorous year of military
training, so that if the necessity
comes, every man at the University
will be trained to take his place on
the line. We pray for the day of
peace when we can return to our|
peaceful pursuits. May I add that
we members of the Oregon student
body are on deck with three rails and
an ‘Oskie’ ^>r the Emerald, the Ore
gana, the football team and every
other branch of student activities.
And last of all, our deepest regards
of gratitude and appreciation are ex
pressed to President Campbell for his
past services to us and for his part
in providing us with reading mate

Prof. Allen H. Eaton submitted his
resignation as a member of the Uni
versity faculty late tonight, in the
following letter to President P. L.
Eugene, Oregon, Oct. 5, 1917.
“I herewith hand you my resigna
tion as a member of the Faculty of
the University of Oregon, with the
request that it be placed before the
Board of Regents for their consider
ation as soon as they shall be able
to meet in full board session. At that
time I respectfully ask the privilege
of personally appearing before the
Board to answer the charges that
have been brought against me by the
Eugene Commercial club.
"I deeply regret that the Board of
Regents should have forced upon them
tills unpleasant and ' unmerited re
sponsibility. I tried to avoid it for
the University by offering to lay be
fore the Commercial Club all the facts
in the case, that they might have an
opportunity to modify or withdraw
a demand that was made without a
knowledge of the truth, but this offer

up the responsibility of this investi

“As I see it there are only two big
considerations in the whole matter, j
One is the welfare of the University; '
the outlier is justice to me. I put the
University first because I want it to
be considered first, and because it is
important to more people. But the
clearing of my name of false charges
is both important to the University
and vital to me. Therefore I shall
welcome the opportunity that I know
will lie granted me to place the whole
truth before the Regents, believing
that truth and freedom will bring Jus
“Nothing in this communication
must be construed as an admission
of any alleged facts that I have al
ready denied; it is an admission only
of my confidence in the Board of Re

The stitclier, power run, and of a
late model, is valued at close to $550.
It has a capacity of seven-eighths
inch, meaning that anything which
is of paper and stacked to seven-;
eighths of an inch high may be stitched j
with ease. The ordinary work, how-j
ever, according to DeLay, hardly ever
runs over one-lmlf to three-quarters
of the inch.
It vyas originally intended to print!
the Emerald in the school of journal

the press that the department sought,
it has been left until next year. The

four page newspaper of the six'column

Requisitions have been signed in the
business office for a Chandler and
Price power cutter. The old cutter
in the basement of Johnson hall,!
says DeLay was found to be too small
for the work that it had to handle so
the new power cutter was ordered.1
It* is valued at about $475.
In addition to the new equipment in
machinery new fonts of type will be
added to the type already on hand; !
spacing materials, stones and other
office furniture are also being planned.
