WRITING A NEW CHAPTER.
Today marked the turning over of a new leaf in the life of
the University. When Governor Withycombe this afternoon re
viewed the caret Battalion, he did so in the capacity of com
manded-in-chief of the state’s military resources. It was not
three hundred college students that he reviewed, but three hun
dred defenders of the American Flag.
Last fall Governor Withycombe administered the pledge of
service to their state and nation to these same young men. To
day he saf them at work fulfilling that pledge. Those boys in
uniform represented more than four companies of the man
power of the state of Oregon—they represented an element of the
Uniteu States Army that is destined to play an all-important part
in deciding the war on the side of democracy and justice.
These are the young men, resisting a period of patriotic en
thusiasm, have stayed with their work, sometimes in the face of
criticism, that they might find the niche in the new order of
things where they would be of the greatest service to their coun
try. It is unjeust to presume for a minute that they have held
back with any intention of trying to evade their plain duty — if
there be such a man in the ranks of the University Battalion,
then he does not deserve the name of an Oregon student.
The University appeared before the people of Oregon to
day, through their highest official, in a new role, offering a
new service and making the supreme sacrifice. It is a day which
will go down into the history of our Alma Mater as one of her
