Bit; Chips in for
Emerald in Crisis
Dean John Straub, because be feels
that The Emerald is most important this
year and at the same time in greater
need of financial support, has paid his

! Can’t Live Happily
Without Emerald,
Says Claire Gazley
If you are reading The Emerald over
someone's shoulder you can be fair in
supporting The Emerald by sending the
paper home or to someone off the cam
pus and they appreciate it.
Witness a letter from Claire Gazley,
junior in the University last year and
prominent in dramatics, -who is now at
tending the U. of C. at Berkeley. After
telling Lyle Bryson, circulation man
ager, that; a check was enclosed, she
“Please forward back numbers for this
term. I simply must have news of the
dear old campus. Although I’m trying
hard to be a loyal Californian and the
University is wonderful, my heart is still
in Oregon.”

Loss of the Emerald to the University,
h rough failure of the student body to
ifford it the support necessary for its
»ntinuanee throughout the year, would
<e one of the most disasterous things
rhieh could occur in connection with
be University at this time. With j
ampus life and campus tradition dis
cpted as it is bv the changes incident ‘
lo tht> military work being carried on
this year, there is every reason why
the Emerald should be maintained. It
alone can perpetuate and keep alike the
“Old Spirit of Oregon,'' without which,
when normal conditions return, the Uni
versity cannot hope to sustain the char
acteristics which have made it the “one
school for us ”
Amount of Noise Candidates
Draw from Rooters Will
Decide Victor
Fiunl yell leader tryouts will be held
at University yell practice on Kincaid i
field Wednesday atternoon at 4 o’clock.
“Nick" Carter, Johnnie Gamble, Lyle
McCroskey, R. Waggoner, C. A. Phipps,
“Jig-gs” Leslie and Johnnie Houston, all
of whom were in the tryouts at Satur
day’s game, will compete.
The support of the student body, the
amount of noise the candidates can get
out of the rooters, will determine who
will be this year’s yell king. Following
the tryouts tomorrow Don Orput, for- j
mer yell leader, will make his recom
mendation to the student council accord
ing to the authorization given him at
the last meeting of the council.
Orput Wants Women On Rooters Side.
Orput has asked that more support to
the football men this year be given from
tlie women of the University, and in or
der that they can be directed in sing
ing Oregon songs by the Varsity yell
leaders he has suggested that the wo
men sit on the same side of the field
with the boys hereafter.
‘It is not my idea that, the women
should get too boisterous this year just
because it is up to them to support the
team more than in previous years,” said
Orput, “but they can improve in show
ing in a more demonstrative way the loy
al support they have given lemon-yellow
teams in the past. It is my idea, that
with 'the women assisting side by side
with the men in the Oregon songs and
applause, and with the men going good
behind a good yell leader, the team can
feci the old Oregon fight behind them
this year ns well as any other.”
The showing made at yell practice
Saturday afternoon at the game between
the two Oregon squads was disappoint
ing. Forty six supporters in grand stand
and bleachers was tin showing offered
by tlie 450 women of the University.

Student Council Members All
Working Hard to Save Emerald
Emphasis Placed on Necessity That Every One Support Paper
—Cooperation Conside red Test of Loyalty
to Oregon.
Aroused over the prospect of losing
for Oregon its chief factor in perpetuat
ing the University li-s and Oregon Spirit
through the forced tusnensiou of The
Emerald because of lack of subscrip
tion support, every member of the stu
dent council hits become identified with
the campaign to save The Emerald.
Every member will take an active part
in making known to the now students
that The Emerald is the paper of the As
sociated Students and not run by nor
for any individual or group. Enthusiasm
and loyalty for The Emerald as the big
gest thing in the University life and
faith in the Oregon Spirit to put the
paper on a safe basis wore expressed
in statements issued this morning by
I'aul Spangler, president of the student
body; Elia Dews, vice-president, and
Members of the student counted.
Emerald is ;lie organ of the student body
and as such, it must have the whole
hearted support of the students. It is
the sole means of getting the campus
issues and activities before the students
and no student is an Oregon man or wo
man until he gets behind The Emerald.
The Emerald is always behind the issues
which are best for the University and
unselfishly devotes its columns for a
‘Greater Oregon.’ The Emerald is one of
the chief iustillers of the Oregon Siyirit
