MAINTAIN THE HOME MORALE.
Rjshop Sumner sounded a warning to the students and to all
all America yesterday when he said that he did not fear for the
morale of the United States fighting men and their conduct in
the face of danger, but his fears were that the folks at home
would fail in their part in the conduct of the war.
It is a warning to which we must all give consideration. If
we, living principally to ourselves in settled and peaceful com
munities where the routine pursuits of life are continuing unin
terrupted by the war, persist in closing our eyes and ears to the
horrors of the great conflict we are but destroying our own ef
ficiency and handicapping our nation. The morale of the nation
at home must be equal, if not superior, to that of the men at the
front if Uncle Sam’s boys in khaki are to accomplish their pur
To be a ‘slacker” one need not openly disgrace himself by
peeking to avoid service in the Army or Navy. The ‘slacker” is
the man or woman who fails to do this or her part in the con
duct of the war—there are food slackers, Liberty Bond slackers,
Thrift Stamp slackers, Red Cross slackers, and people of a thou
sand other varieties to whom this cutting term that has found a
new significance since the beginning of the war can justly be ap
plied. It is probable that there is just a little bit of the slacker
in each and every one of us, for the thrift and saving rules we
have been asked to observe are complex and numerous—too nu
. jmerous to be observed strictly by the busy man or woman, un
less time is set aside for their consideration.
The* key to the efficiency of the United States as a nation
lies in the thoroughness with which we make ourselves efficient.
There are a thousand and one ways in which we can assist in the
prosecution of the war, but what these means are and how they
can most effectively be applied by each individual can only be de
termined by that individual.
If there be no truth in the accusation that the average col
lege student is thoughtless of things that do not effect him di
rectly within his campus sphere, we have in our conduct during
the war an opportunity to demonstrate its falseness. Let every
man and every women of Oregon take an inventory of himself, or
herself to the end of formulating every action in relation to the
personal efficiency of the Nation in the prosecution of the war.
Let’s each of us oe a backer for at least one man wearing the
khaki of Amer’ca on the battle fronts of Europe. Enlist your
self in some service to defeat the Hun. Set watch over your
own morale and the morale of our fighting men will care for it

Emblem Fine, Says Col. Leader,
Colonel Leader says that the posses
sion of a banner is an excellent thing
for the morale of a company. “The
thought," said he, “that the women of
the University have devoted their time
to this service cannot fail to impress
the men with the sacredness of he
standard. It is a mark of the esteem
in which the battalion is held by these
g rls who have been untiring in their
efforts to make the flag.”
FINEST FLAG, CHAPLAIN SAYS
Both Emblems Lauded by Dr. Parkin
son, in Introductory Address.
Introducing Bishop Sumner to make
the address of dedication at the flag
ceremonies Wednesday afternoon, Ref.
Or. George H. Parkinson, chaplain of
the battalion, said:
“Gentlemen, Soldiers: We are receiv
ing now as a gift from the women of
the University, two flags, one our na
tional emblem, the finest flag that float
beneath the sky, both because of its
intrinsic beauty and because of its glori
ous symbolism, enhanced now by rea
son of the fact :ha; It is lifted up be*
side the flags of our heroic allies for
no other reason than to secure that in
ternational morality which alone can
make peace permanent: the other, our
regimental colors, second only to the
first in <nir affections, because it is our
own peculiar property, fashioned for ns
hy the hands of those whose honor we
hold as devrer than our lives Both
of these emblems we will carry into
whatever danger duty cabs with that
devotion, ecu.age, and chivalry which
are the marks of the American soldier
“The Right Rev. W T Sumner, nishop
of Portland, has consented to consecrate
these flags for us '.no to offer a prayer
on our behalf. Gentlemen of the bat
talion, Bishop Sumner "

at Coot Presentation
Mrs C-torge T GerUnger cade the
following speech at the presentation of
• it .» with the greatest confidence
that we entrust to the care ol the loyal
men of the University of Oregon these
beautiful colors. They have been
wrought by th skilled and devoted hands
of the University women. As in all
times past, when the sons of man have
gone forth to war, and the women have
| sent with them the inspiration of their
love and their trust, so to you, brave
knights of a modern crusade against
the powers of darkness, do all of us
charge you ever to be mindful of your
high calling, and that you endure hard
ness as good soldiers of the Lord.
“We charge you ever to guard these
colors, the emblems of your country !
and your Alma Mater, as sacredly as !
you would your own honor; to bear your
part nobly in this and in all conflicts.
We charge you to remember that this
warfare in which we are engaged is not
an evil accident, and that it is not some
strange visitation of a capricious higher
power; but that it is the inevitable re
sult of personal and national selfish
ness and materialism; that it is the late
and ugly flowering of a seed long ger

horrors of this war have a definite place
in the large providence of God, that
Fie will use you and all the noble com
pany of University men—you the very
flower of American chivalry—to bring
about a great free world of friendly
on your courage and your arms in the
spirits—this remembrance will strength

“And when the reign of universal
peace shall have come, when the great
brotherhood of man, born of common
physical and spiritual experiences, shall
rejoice in true liberty of the spirit and
the bond of perfect freedom, may we
all bear a worthy part in the great
enterprise of peace, the establishment
of •« world democracy."
