SUPPORT THE WAR DRIVE.
Tin* University of Oregon is magnifi
cently represented in France. More
than a thousand of her truest sons are
at the battle front. Are we, who are
still on the campus going to do our best
to keep them smiling over there?
A real chance to do this and to help
do our port is coming tomorrow and
lo'xt week while the War Work Cam
paign is on. Remember that every dol
lar given for this war work will help
•olve the big problem of relieving the
strain of camp routine for our brothers
over there and allow them to relax from
the rigors of military routine and disci
The largest possible use will be made
of the dollars we give into the charge
of the six organizations associated in
the drive. They are able to get one
hundred per cent efficiency out of every
dollar because they are on the ground,
their organization is complete, and they
operate in every sector.
Ut us figure close when wo see how
nmeli we can give and send over a few
more motion picture shows for the boys,
gin1 them places to write letters, library
facilities, music and chocolate.
Now that the armistice has been sign
ed, the hoys will soon he mobilizing In
concentration camps to wait their turns
to come home and since the wait is
bound to be long In some cases every
thing possible should bo provided In the
way of entertainment for them.
No make that war work drive sub
scription just as large as possible!
Conch "Shy" Huntington yesterday
caught a fre-hmnu looking over n pile
of football cepiimpent with the view of
going out for football - and with a
cigarette In his mouth. Huntington,
himself an old Oregon man, had never
seen a like occurence and that fresluuau
got no suit.
Iu this notion Huntington not only
showed a sain that he was fired with the.
Oregon Snirit and a low for Oregon
traditions but he called to the attention
of the student body that, at least in re
apeet to the tradition of not smoking on
the campus, Oris on in. n were lieeouiinr
la' Smoking in the gymnasium was
permitted while the building wa- used
for S- A. T. barracks but with the
men moved out, students hare been slow
to take tip the no s coking rule. After
mess at !• rielidl.N Hail students have
been growing mere and mote careless
about walking out ,,f the building and up
on the eainput while ',111! smoking.
J'lie tradition that no student shall
smoke on the campus, extending from
Kincaid at vet to University street and
from Eleventh street to the North snt,»
j of Thirteenth street, is one of the most
valuable of Oregon traditions and among
the first- The regard of Old Oregon
men for Oregon traditions is seen in
“Shy” Huntington and other alumni
now on the campus. In time they will
'■ome to mean as much to all the Oregon
students now here
If the war does end at once, men of
the iS. A. T. C. claim it will be because
Colonel Leader appeared in civilian
"NO SMOKING’ EMPHASIZED
Student Council Acts Upon Hearing
Campus Tradition Is Disregarded.
The student council last night went on
record as favoring a more strict enforce
ment and observunee of the Oregon tra
dition in regurd to the prohibition of
smoking on the campus. Ac.ion was tak
en toward a more' thorough campaign of
education among the freshmen following
the relnting of the story of Coach “Shy”
Huntington refusing to issue a football
suit to a freshman because he was smok
ing a cigarette in the gymnasium- -in op
position to the smoking tradition—while
I picking out his equipment.
By the Oregon tradition established
■ early in the University’s history smok
ing is not permitted on that part of the
campus included between Kincaid and
University streets and between Eleventh
street and the north side of Thirteenth
Complaint was made before the coun
cil that men were becoming lax in regard
t othe tradition in walking from mess at
Friendly hall out onto the campus. The
men have been slow, also, in taking up
the tradition within the gymnasium since
the building has been vacated as bar
racks, it was reported to the council.
