The deed of daring to which University students for years
and years have aspired has been accomplished and yesterday,
when the Oregon student body assembled in Villard hall to cele
brate the greatest victory ever won by the lemon-yellow, the
0. A. C. “Iron Woman” stood on the platform. That alone was a
cause for rejoicing, for many attempts to kidnap the Aggie sym
bol from her fountain pedestal at the entrance to the Aggie cam
pus have come to naught.
Oregon’s victory was the more complete when, in the after
noon, two representatives of the Corvallis student body arrived
to open negotiations for the return of their “woman.” There
was nothing but the best of feeling displayed at the meeting be
tween them and officers of the University student body. The
humor of the situation was equally evident to both sides and the
visitors frankly admitted that Oregon had “slipped one over on
thorn.” That the mass of 0. A. C. students should have been in
dignant Monday morning when they found the statue gone and
such slogans as “Fight ’em Oregon” painted on their campus is
not more than natural. Neither are we to be surprised that many
of them were in favor of immediately coming to Eugene to at
tempt a “clean tip” and to recover their idol. Rut wiser heads
controlled and the threatened invasion did not materialize.
Today the “Iron Woman” was returned and the score called
even. They had painted the “0” and we in retaliation had stolen
the symbol which Aggie “rooks” have been made to kiss for
years. The good spirit between the two institutions, which has
been growing steadily stronger each year, remains unscarred. As
it stands, the incident is a good joke well taken, but further
activity of like nature on the part of students of either school
may lead to very strained relations and serious consequences.
Oregon and the Agriculaural college went through one
fracus that ended in the severance of inter-collegiate relations
between the two institutions and neither desires a repetition of
that occuranee.
To University students the incidents of the past few days
are closed and any further activity of this kind directed against
0. A. C. will meet with marked disfavor. Let us forget it and
they will do the same.
Motion pictures dealing with college life invariably portray
the college student in a way that antagonizes the public toward
his species. For instance, the other day a movie, featuring a col
lege scene, pictured the students as lounging about their rooms
at midnight, playing loudly upon guitars, smoking villainous
bull-dog pipes, and disturbing the calm air of the night with
their boisterous drinking songs. They were dressed in a fash
ion entirely foreign to the American university, and their actions
might well have convinced the audience that they were looking
at a scene in an asylum, had not a caption announced that this
was life in Sapleigh University.
The harm that such pictures do to the American university
and college is known only to the college man himself. Wrong in
almost every particular, these films tend to antagonize the public
toward university life, they do much more harm than those un
acquainted with the real situation imagine.
Movie directors, always painfully correct in the portrayal
of a murder or of a scene in the slums, might well take a day off
and drop into any college town, see the students seriously engag
ing in their class-work and in the varied worth-while activities,
and then go back and show the public the truth and not what
they imagine the truth to be from a casual perusal of Siwash
Days.—Michigan Daily.

catching himself only in time to avoid
a cleaning and pressing bill.

Eugene Loan and
Savings BanK
Established 1829.
Eugene, Oregon
One of the bad practices frequently resorted to by bank
customers is post dating checks. Not having the money in
the bank and being pressed for a bill the party draw's a
check on the bank and dates it at a future date, obtaining a
promise from the payee not to present it until the date en
tered on the check.
In some cases such checks are met when due, in others
the draw'er does not obtain the money as expected, and is
unable to make the deposit to meet it. The check is dis
honored, and perhaps protested. The good name of the
party drawing the check is hurt and what is worse the
character of the party for financial integrity has deterior
ated. All such make shift practices are bad if not actually
dishonest, and are bound to meet with jn the long
run. Never draw’ a check on a bank unless the funds are
actually in the bank. Never postdate a check. It is a bad
practice. See that all your dealings with your bank are ab
solutely on the square. By so doing you are building up a
reputation for integrity that will be of great value to you
in after life.
