WHERE IS THE OLD SPIRIT?
8. A. T. C. officers at the University,
all of them former University men, are
disappointed in not finding the Oregon
Spirit on the campus. Before being as
signed here they had heard of the Ore
gon fight thut enabled Oregon with a
small number of men to choose from to
win year after year in Oregon, in the
Northwest and Coast conferences, and
in the East vs. West game in I’asmjena,
Calif., two years ago. Undoubtedly such
a University with such a spirit would be
quirk to pick up military w'ork and
spirit and be an enjoyable place to work
with men naturally fitted by this spirit
for advancement into officers training
cutups. Now they are here and find tho
Oregon Spirit they had heard about is
goin- with the Oregon men in the ser
vice and not aroused in tho now men iu
the S. A. T. a
But they are not the only campus body
to be disappointed. There is the Huiall
who wishes to earn her living by other
body of old men who have been work
ing for Oregon this year as ever, and the
faculty of Oregon. They are disappoint
ed that the new tuen show no interest
in the one thing that sets this Univer
sity above the ordinary college.
Oregon men in the service must he
■hewn that they did not take all the Ore
gon Spirit with them—that their Uui
versity still will have the old fight and
be a good place to go back to after the
war. A sli p in the right direction was
taken last night by the student council
when they declared for tryouts in the se
lection of a yell leader that popular
chidre shall gi\c Oregon a leader that
the rooters will follow.
Oregon must come hack to the old
standard on this campus. (Jet the best

‘•Opportunity has opened wide the,
door for women, liven before the pres
ent war demanded so much from Amer
ican women there were increasing ex-!
plorers in vocational fields. Hut today
our colleges are filled as never before
v th young women who are seeking an
education whi -h will direct thought and
eh it icter definitely to some serviceable
activity. The colleges are offering a
broader choice of courses for the woman
wh" wishes to earn her living by other
methods than teaching The University
adviser is finding it necessary to bo well
informed on the vocations which are
opening for women and the best train

Thelnbovc ypt-oaHon was taken from
a current magazine devoted to women’s
interests and suggests the idea that the
college women are doing a patriotic bit
when they look ahead and prepare them
selves for a definite line of service as
soon as they receive the necessary train
By fitting themselves to do efficiently
the work of the men who will not come
hack from the Great War, the women
are serving their country ns much as
if they went to France or Washington,
It may lack the thrill of the more
evident service hut in the end it will be
a real contribution to the welfare of the
Rack in those days men came to Ore
gon because they had heard of the Ore
gon Spirit and wanted to be Oregon men.
Freshman, why did you come to Oregon
in preference to some other college?
Members of the Officers’ Training
Corps gathered in front of the Oregana
last night and sang, “As I Sit und
Itream at Evening.” Some of them had
exceedingly good voices—and it was
good anyway to hear them sing Oregon
songs. The campus would like it if they
could stay longer ns Oregon men.
Where is that knot or even bevy of
freshmen who have gathered for an
Oregon song feHt as did the O. T. C.
men last night? Who are the Oregon
