While little of the stuff dope is made
of can come from from Saturday's
ten me between Multnomah and Oregon
due to the early season and the severe
inroads made on practices ns well as
upon the final line-up for Oregon’s first
game, it demonstrates one important
thing. Oregon Spirit still lives on the
No dope sheet on Oregon is complete
without n reckoning for the Oregon
fight. Many have been made in recent
years without considering the asset Ore
gon has always had in addition to what
other Universities could show with the
same men on the field. That is why
Oregon lias upset “dope" year after
year until Oregon cannot he “figured”
by those who will not reckon the Ore
“Oregon’s individual players and
(heir showing in early games plus Ore
■ gon Spirit Oregon will win.” It used
to sound like a “bum” emmet some eight
or ten years ago but. it lias grown to
have a lot of weight.
New conditions have come with tho
war, however. The student body has
changed fast at Oregon and given the
old Oregon men little chnnco to hand
down the traditional Oregon Spirit and
Oregon fight on the football field to the
new men. So the big question that
could be decided, the only . one that
could be decided under the circumstanc
es, was in regard to the question, "Has
Oregon this year still backed by the old
Led by a banmul of old Oregon nini
scattered through the bleuvhers at Sat
urday’s game thi* aoni*' fou hundred
now Oregon men answered the question
in the affirmative, f
“Oregon will win!”
It came out strong, this manifesta
tion of the (Oregon fight. The game
was particularly suited to test Oregon’s
new men. Oregon was not winning. It
is traditional of the Oregon Spirit that
it sends On non teams into the game to
win and 1 ok*, them as winning teams
until the last. k defeated team at the
Oregon field is hueked as strongly as a
victorious one; when an Oregon team
comes bank without victory. as has hap
pened occasionally during the last fif
teen or twiuty years, the men are wel
comed as enthusiastically as it they had
won, for Oregon men know that, with
the Oregon fight of the players and the
Oregon fight ofsthe supporters, Oregon
is iilwax , a winning team. Occasional
(lef* ata sustained h,v Oregon only give
the real Ota non Spirit a chance to show
and always the Oregon fight is strength
Oregon’s rooting at the Sat.nrda.i
game, of course, was not so atrnog as it
used to be and must 1«* improved so
that the men **n the field call feel It
more. Saturday’s rooting is notable be.
cause the men who gave it supported
their team w«ll in a game that was lost.
They had already something of the Ore
gon Spirit without knowing particularly
well the Oregon veils. The Oregon
Spirit hud come first.
When the Spanish influenza looses its
grip on Oregon activity tunl again per
mits Oregon’s fuiJ line-up to get on the
field, it will also permit yell practice
something denied the new men whc
backed Oregon Saturday. Then Ore
gon’s real strength on the field will b«
backed by the old fight.
According to the latest reports Spanish
Flu is still with us but the numbers arc
not greatly increasing and no cases have
yet proved very serious, so why worry;
Worry endangers the health, it does
j not help out the fellow who has the Flu
j and is altogether needless, useless and
We are all doing our best to avoid a
serious epidemic, and in this everyone
has a part. If you feel ill and fear you
are coming down with Flu the only sen
sible thing to do is to go to hod and stay
there or at least avoid other people who
might catch it from you.
The essential difference between the
civilized man and the savage is ex
j pressed in our daily routine by "No man
j liveth unto himself." Right now our
| greatest civic obligation is to the gen
' eral health of the T'niversity. So it is up
to every student to observe the health
rules outlined by the Health Committee
, and not worry.
Heal health means more than
strength of muscle, it means endurance,
energy, self control, will power, and
courage. It is essential to conserve all
| these by wise exercise, fresh air, suffi
cient rest, wholesome food, and cheer
One of the greatest victories man has
achieved is thnt of science over disease
and the spread thereof.
Now Ft. us apply all the science that
we know and prevent further spread of
sickness on the campus.

Ml hough their quarters are not so
commodious or convenient for the most
part as they have been for several years,
vet most of the men’s fraternities on the
campus have selected some place to hold
their meetings. With thur own houses
turned over to the government, the fra

places for their headipiarters.
Two fraternities have rooms down
town. The Sigma Ohis are in the De

the A. T. O.’s have rooms over the
Wool worth store.
The lletas have a house at Twelfth

As yet the Phi Delta, the Sigma Xus

The rent on for their not being issued
was explained by Miss Tingle as due
both to her unexpected absence at that
time and later to the desire of many of
the girls to continue in the work, and
have their certificates held until the
completing, of more courses. Each cer
tificate bears the titles of the three
I courses offered here with an additional
| space for any other course bearing on
j food and the war, so that if the entire
j group is liken the certificate means
I much more to the holder. However

U. OF 0. WOMEN EARN $600
44 Girls Average Returns for First
forty-four University women who are
working their way through college have
earned more than six hundred dollars
since the beginning of the school year.
They have done stenographic work,
clerking, tutoring, waiting on table, sew
ing and caring for children.
There are also many odd jobs on
Saturdays, according to Miss Tirza
Dinsdale, secretary of the Y. W. C. A.,
but few girls are available. The number
of girls applying for work through the
Y. W. O. A. this year averages one
third less than last year.
The reason for this decrease, thinks
Miss Dinsdale, is that many girls obtain
ed good positions during the summer
and feel it to their advantage to stay
with (hem. Others earned enough dur
ing the summer to make it unnecessary
to work during the school year. ]
