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 man out of your platoon and send him to Orput Saturday to lead a few for the lemon-yellow. COILEUE VS. INDUSTRY. ‘•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 ing for those lines With our young men “over there" giving themselves to anvc the democracy wo cherish, the ting women “over here" are giving tleVlselves to a great*! usefulness than Auicwonn w manhood has ever krown Infer A" 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 ing. 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, D. C. 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 country. 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 men? Woe For Freshmen Green Caps Can’t Be Worn With Uniforms 'The little greeu caps, worn commonly and exclusively by the freshmen, the "worms «£ the earth,” are to lie burned maybe. Since the beginning of time, it has been the custom for the trash to wear the distinguishing murk of a round, greeu piece of cloth, stuck on the top of the head. During Junior Week-end they have in past years beeu allowed to burn these, with appropriate ceremonies. Rut this year uniforms arc to be is sued to ill the college men and the gov ernment his decided that a green cap does not go well with a uniform. There fore arose the question of what to do with the frosli cups after the issuance of uniforms. The problem will undobut edly he solved by burning the caps as usual, but this time in tiie fall of the year. The upperclassmen are now deciding when this bonfire shall he built. The sophomores are reminding the frosli that the water runs cold in the mill race, and that a little swim is one of the fea tures accompanying the burning of the caps.

To each state and each county is given a quota of this amount to raise, the money lining apportioned like taxes. The University of Oregon’s hare will lie counted a part of Land county’s quota, although the raising of it will be entirely independent of the cam paign in the county. "The colleges of the state will lie giv en opportunity to decide the amount they will undertake to raise,” said Dr. Cas well, “although the conference appor tioned umonints tentatively, based on the number of students in each organiza tion. ” The amount which Oregon will pledge toward the campaign lias not been an nounced.
