LET’S BE THERE 600 STRONG.
Do you remember that little story that the Emerald ran sev
eral weeks ago regarding a school that had a team, but the stud
ents didn’t think it was much of a team and did not turn out to
see it perform. The result, if you remember, was that the team
wasn’t much of a team and they didn’t make much of a showing
before the few loyal rooters who did turn out to watch them play.
The point is that the team might have had a wealth of latent
talent needing only the proper encouragement to crop out. It
probably was capable of playing better games than it did, but it
lacked the proper incentive. That brings us to another point;
even the best teams are apt to fall down on the job if they do not
receive the proper support from the institution they are chosen
to represent. They may go into a contest looking at the outcome
in this manner: we have worked hard to make the team and
after making it, have wrorked still harder to prepare ourselves to
properly uphold the honor of our colors. We are the team. It is
not any more our team than it is that of any other person in the
institution. If they who have only to lend their moral support
take no interest in that team why should we “bust ourselves” to
insure its success? They, looking on from the outside, evidently
feel that we are to be beaten. Otherwise they would turn out to
witness the victory. Well, perhaps we are beaten.
And with such a spirit the best team ever developed is beat
en before it ever goes into a contest.
Saturday night our wrestlers, the best team that Oregon has
ever turned out, are going to mix with the Aggies in Hayward
Hall. But the Aggies are not sending any bunch of scrubs into
the match. Their’s are also first class men and they defeated the
University of Washington after we had lost to the Seattle bunch.
Every bout in that meet is going to be fast and furious, with the
odds in favor of the men exhibiting the most fight. It is up to
Oregon to see that her men are imbued with that winning fight.
There is only one way to develop the fighting spirit—get behind
the team, let them know you are behind them and impress upon
them the fact that you are fighting for them and you expect them
to fight for you and for Oregon.
There is not the slightest excuse for any student failing to
turn out Saturday night. Seats will be provided for all who at
tend and the first bout has been scheduled for seven o’clock,
early enough to insure that the meet will be over in time to allow
lor filling the regular Saturday evening engagements.
Come on! Let’s be there 600 strong.

GREY NOT TO WRESTLE

threw his man at Washington, these twj
muscle twisters should be about evenly
matched, and should put one one of the
best matches of the evening.
Captain Strome, of the Aggies, will
be Howard’s opponent at the 148 mark,
and this match will in all probability
be one of the most interesting of the
meet, as Howard is determined to give
the Aggie captain a run for his money.
Taylor and MoLean Well Matched.
Taylor will take on McLean in the
last event of the evening, and as both
of these men won at Washington, here
again there is the prospect of an ex- ;
ceptionally good match. Taylor has im- ,
proved greatly since the Washington
meet in speed.
The only way tu compare the two
teams is in their work against the Uni
versity of Washington wrestlers. Ore
gon took only two events from the
northern institution, while the O. A. C.
representatives took four of the five
events. The, only Aggie to lose his
watch was Palmer, who is wrestling at
115. He was defeated by the Jap at
Washington, who got a decision over
Simula. As Simola is not to enter this
meet, it is hard to forecast just what
chance Oregon has of taking this event.
Captain Strome, of the O. A. C. team,
is recognized as one of thp best of the
collegiate wrestlers in the Pacific north
west. He had little trouble getting the
decision over McGovern, captain of the
Washington team, who in turn got the
decision over Grey. As Grey will not

Professor Schroff told of the begin

they have developed. “Boston has al

Sixty lantern slides of paintings and
artists with whom Professor Schroff
has come in contact, were shown during
Saturday night he spoke before the
Little club, on stain glass windows. This
was illustrated by lantern slides of his
own mural designs.
Professor Schroff began his lecture
with a short review of the mural de
signs of the twelfth century, and showed
the development up to the present
time. "Within the last ten years,” said
he, “there has been a marked reversion
; to the old type of designs such as were
used in the twelfth and thirteenth cen
turies. These earlier works are vet y
much superior to our present-day ef
forts in the big essentials of art.” This
he attributes to the religious fervor
that backed the people of medieval
Mrs. Schroff, who accompanied her
husband, exhibited 12 of her latest
miniatures Saturday night at the Little
club, and Professor Schroff showed sev

fessor Sehroff’s lecture.
