REFORMATION VS. DEFORMATION.
Wednesday evening the Student Council passed a resolution
which has, thus far at least, received but passing attention judg
ing from the manner in which dances and other social functions
are being announced for dates conflicting with major athletic
activities on the campus.
All through the year there appears to have been a spirit of
utter disregard for conflicts with varsity contests in the sched
uling of house dances. Time and again there have been from one
to three dances held on the campus during the time when Oregon
teams were in contest. The result has been to detract from the
turnout to the major events and a serious loss of enthusiasm
through divided attention. A striking example of this, and the
incident directly responsible for the Student Council’s action,
was the instance of three house functions on the night of the sec
ond basketbal game with O. A. C. last week. Here the effect was
marked. In the place of the howling, cheering crowd that at
tended the first game, the second contest saw great gaps along
the bleachers where rooters should have been; and the spirit was
Next Saturday night Oregon’s wrestling team is to meet the
Aggie grapplers in the gymnasium and the social calendar shows
no less than three dances marked-up for that evening. True, it
would be hardly feasible to call in the invitations that have been
issued for these affairs, but it would be very desirable to post
pone the opening waltz until after the wrestling meet and there
by give everyone a chance to turn out and back up the team.
To the University students of several years ago who read
these lines the very thought that social affairs are being given
preference over intercollegiate contests by the students on the
campus today will be a real shock. It is a thing absolutely un
heard of in former years and, while we are not so narrow as to
oppose a reform simply because it deviates from the established
order of things, we are inclined to view the holding of social af
fairs in conflict with varsity activities more in the light of a de
formation of the Oregon Spirit than as a reformation.

I’m feeling in a lOder mood 2 day
and feel poetic 2. With this word we
(editorially, meaning the good Under
wood and myself), are preparing for
your approval a line of sense and non
sense, figurtively speaking, which we hope
will go smashing down'- the colyums of
the Oregon Emerald with a resound
ing smash. When you read a joke
which made you chuckle when an infant
just say “that joke always did make
me laugh,” and pass on to the next.
Maybe you have read this one in last
month’s Judge, but road it again, and
remember that before the invention of
slates, people multiplied on the face
of the earth, and quickly turn to the
society colyums—we don’t care.

We understand that the Zeba Sigma

house which has blinds on the windows.
This same room is also fixed up with
chairs large enough for two iso we are

which plays mechanically and sounds
very much as if a human h ind tickled
tile keys. Taking altogether and adding
it with something else, we should say,
it is a mush room.
