LEARNING TO “SWALLOW.”
Yesterday the order to salute all officers of the University
battalion, long expected and yet viewed with a certain amount
of apprehension as to the manner in which it would be received,
was issued from the office of the commandant. It was Colonel
Leader’s first step in the program he has outlined for building
up the morale and discipline of the men he is training for effi
cient service on the battle fields of Europe.
Generally, the order has been well received and with a full
understanding on the part of the men that it is “part of the
game.” The few hours that the order has been in effect have
done more than demonstrate that even the serious business of
war fias its humorous side—to witness the picture of a fresh
man laden with bundles and trying at the same time to come sud
denly to attention and salute without spilling his burden is not
exactly conductive of tears. It was with a vague fear as to the
reaction of independent young Americans that the order was first
received, but all cause for apprehension has been put to rest.
Almost without exception the students have taken the order as
a necessary detail of the serious business in which they are now
engaged; they salute not necessarily the man, but the authority
which his rank symbolizes.
There are, however, a small few who do not recognize in
the order its necessity to the morale and discipline of a modern
military machine, who fail to understand the importance of de
tail to the task of building up an efficient fighting force. That
alone can be the answer to any whimper of dissatisfaction one
may observe in widely scattered individual cases. Oregon will
not admit that it has a single man on the campus who is not only
willing but anxious to do what he can to fit himself for more ef
ficient service in the prosecution of this war for democracy, 'it
may be “a hard pill to swallow” for the man who is accustomed
to being his own boss, but the one thing to be done by every loyal
American today is swallow, obey orders of those in authority in
the prosecution of the war and seek to make himself and his na
tion more effective, champions of democracy.
THE WOMEN—MORE GLORY TO THEM.
As usual the women of the University are right on the job.
Not content with the Red Cross work and other intermittent
tasks of a war nature thoy have been performing they are now
asking that more opportunity be given the women on the campus
to do their bit.
No sooner had the military drill hour for the men been defi
nitely selected than a spirit of unrest was to be sensed among
the women. Here and there on the campus the question began to
arise. “Why can’t we be doing something during the hour that
the boys are drilling.” One suggestion followed another, but the

most practical yet brought to the attention of the Emerald is that
a nurses’ training course for women be inaugurated during the
one o’clock hour.
The suggesion comes direct from the women themselves,
with the request that the Emerald open the question for discus-:
sion. Of the sincerity of the proposal there is no question. It is!
backed by a group of women too serious of mind and too awake
to the horrors of modern warfare to arouse even a tinge of sus-,
picion of its being a fad idea. As to the men Colonel and Mrs. j
Leader have brought home to the women a realization of the
giant task which the United States has pledged itself to accom
The women are seeking a new field for response to a greatly
enlarged responsibility and the Emerald gladly throws its col
umns open to them. Oregon’s women are seeking further means
of expressing their loyalty and patriotism in deeds. Have you
a suggestion to offer? Well, write it down and send it in. Some
where in the Emerald place will be found to publish it.
DO YOU KNOW A GOOD MARCH?
And, speaking of making the Emerald a forum for the ideas
of its readers, brings another request to our mind.
Colonel Leader is strong for music in connection with mili
tary drill and he is strong for the band. He has a lot of inter
esting tales to tell in connection with music and its part in war
fare, but what he wants right now is a good marching song—
an individual, inspiring Oregon song. He wants the best he can
get and to get the best he wants suggestions from everyone.
Mighty Oregon is already on the list. Give us some more.
JOE TOMINAGA’S LOVE
FOR U. S. IS SHAKEN
University Graduate’s Patriotism Suf
fers Because He Is Not Allowed
to Become Citizen.
Joe Tominaga, a Japanese who grad
uated from the school of architecture
in 191G, and was sergean’t-at-arms of his
class, is most loyal in his feeling for
the United States, but his great love
for thiH country lias been shaken be
cause he has failed in bis efforts to en
list in the army. He is thinking even of
writing to President Wilson to ask that
he be not barred from giving his services
to this country.
In a letter to Mrs. J. T. Abbett, of
Portland, Tominaga describes his ex
periences at a recruiting office, where
he was rejected because he had not
taken ont his first papers. He went
the following day to the county conrt
to apply for citizenship, but was told
that since he was a Japanesf. he could
not be admitted.
He writes: ‘‘What do you think I
got for an answer? It was really be
youd my comprehension, and ultimately
hnrt. my youthful pride of being a man.
Ulerk told me I can't have first papers
because I am neither white nor black.
T couldn’t simply understand that state
ment. If shade of skin is of prime im
portance and a main requirement for
the admittance of aliens into citizenship,
I question so much the true meaning of
the United States constitution, upon
which the noble principle of democracy
rests, and for which many loyal bloods
wore dedicated and are still being dedi
cated, before her altar.”

Mr. Onthank, “and no doubt his talk

True Sportsman Will Never
Shoot More Game Than Need
By PETER P. CARNEY
(Editor of National Sports Syndicate)
Can it be said of you that you are
satisfied with a reasonable bag?
Does the man that conies after you
get any of the sport?
In many localities such sportsmen
exist. They are interested in the pro
tection and perpetuation of the coun
try’s game resources. They get what
they want, but they have conservative
wants. They never fire a gun at any
kind of game if they thought by so
doing they would injure the prospects
for the increase of that game supply.
In some sections wild water fowl are
exceptionally good this year, the in
crease being attributed to the migra
tory bird law and to gunners who on
previous gunning trips only shot
enough for their actual needs and never
more than the law limit.
This could be true of all other game.
Don't shoot more than you need. Don’t
shoot just for the sake of hitring some
thing. If you feel that way about it.
go to the nearest gun club and break
targets. It's fine sport and you are
not killing off or reducing chances for
future supply, no matter how many clay
birds you kill.
Be a considerate sportsman.
Duck Hunting From Airplanes j
Is Sport for Aviators'
The rieh who have time on their
hands are on the trail of a new form
of sports, although it may be said in
its support that men of the aviation
corps have a very good argument in it^ i
favor ns an aid to marksmanship.
This new sport is nothing more or
less than hunting ducks by aeroplane,
the incentive, of course, being the op
portunity for wing shooting against
double speed. That is, the machine is
traveling at bird speed while the ducks
are likewise doing record work.
One of the army corps says:
'•There could be no better practice
for marksmanship than to hunt fast
flying birds like wild ducks in aero
planes. The problem of maneuvering
would be about the same as would be
encountered in combat with a hostile
flyer, and hitting flying ducks from an
aeroplane going 00 miles an hour would
require a steady eye and hand.”
