Thomas G. Hendricks is dead
The University of Oregon has
lost one of its greatest benefac
tors—a man whose steady, con
sistent effort in the University’s
behalf during the past many
years has been a big element in
the progress of our institution.
We mourn- his departure. His
spirit can never grow old—can
never die- The sacrifices he
made for the University at the
time, money and work lie ex
pended for its progress will live
on after him as a guiding light
for tilts achievements of his pre

SUPPORT AND LOYALTY
With Oregon chosen on her mer
its as the eleven best fitted to de
fend the west when it. meets east
next New Year’s day at Pasadena
in the greatest gridiron classic ever
staged, there are a few things which
might he said about—loyalty.
The facts are few, simple, easily
grasped obvious. this article is
not written with a view to convinc
ing anybody of anything it is mere
ly to remind.
Two years ago "Shy” Huntington
young, comparatively inexperienced
-took over the coaching of football
at the University, lie didn’t have
much to work with. The S. A. T.
('. was on most of the football ma
terial had enlisted- Nobody hail a
lot of encouragement to offer and
most everybody looked askance. And
Coach “Shy” Huntington, youngest
mentor in the United States turned

Nobody denied that Nobody knows
exactly how he did it working,
ewearing, hoping praying, maybe
Coach "Shy” Huntington whipped in
to shape a machine that smashed
through the Aggies for a decisive
victory and for the first time in
many, many year tore up the Wash
ington defenses and won,
This year has been even better.
He is still the youngest coach in the
country. And he is still stacking
up victories for Oregon. Oregon has
outplayed every team it has met.
Huntington has built up a style of
play not easily grasped by the lay
man but that is extremely effect
ive. The Aggies were whipped—
beaten down. Washington didn’t
have a chance. The famous stone
wall defense of the Purple and Gold
crumbled under the Huntington at-1
ta k» Lighting in its own inimitable
way, Oregon has won the coast
cl ampionship and it is going to meet
the great Harvard on New Year’s
And now what is needed more than
any one thing is loyalty—loyalty to
Oregon, loyalty to its team—loyalty
to Coach “Shy” Huntington.
Coach Huntington has delivered
the goods. Jn the two years that he
has worked teeth and toe nail for
Oregon he actually has done whaC
no eastern coach would agree to do
without signing a contract for sev
eral years. Huntington didfi’t ask
for this time in which to make good
—he simply did it. /
Seldom if ever has a staff at the
head of athletics at Oregon worked
together as the present staff works.
Everything is harmony—there is no

Huntington has done big things
for Oregon. And now he should
have Oregon’s backing.
Is he going to get it?
LEST WE FORGET.
Don’t let the interest in the big
Women’s building drive during va
cation die for a single instant. Ore
gon students are before the eyes of
the state in, this big drive and the
state’s estimation of our institution
will be guaged in a large measure
by the way we put over this cam
Others have sacrificed everything
for the building. It is not asking too
much that we devote a big part of,
our vacation time and energy in rais
ing funds with which to complete
the structure. It is your building,
And we are going to be benefitted
by it. Let’s Go.
Students now enrolled in the Uni
versity of Oregon who intend to re
turn next term should by all means
register Monday and Tuesday of
next week before they leave for
Christmas vacation. It will be im
possible to handle others than new
students Monday, January 5, and
regular classes in which cuts will
be counted, will start Tuesday, Jan
uary 6. Students now in college
have the opportunity to register
Monday and Tuesday, and failure
to do so will make it difficult for
them to register upon returning after
vacation. Class cards are all that
need to be filled out now. The regis
tration fee can be paid by mail dur
ing vacation. By registering now
an extra day of vacation can be had
in as much as those registered will
not have to return until Tuesday.

She emphasized the fact that many
places in the state have ltot been
reached in previous efforts to raise
money for the building, and a thor

yield exceptionally good returns.
About 50 eastern Oregon students
plowed through the snow and frost
on Thursday evening for a pop meet
ing in the Y. M. hut to give the cam
paign a send-off in the eastern Ore
gon towns. Harris Ellsworth and
Lindsay McArthur, district chairmen
of the region, presided. Plans of or
ganization were discussed and Mrs.
Gerlinger addressed the meeting.
Portland Rally Monday
A similar rally for all Portland stu
dents at -1 o’clock on Monday in Guild
hall is announced by Dorothy Duni
way, chairman of the Portland district.
It will be the tlrst all-Portland meet

Pamphlets bearing an architect's
drawing of the Women’s building and
a photograph showing its present
stage will be distributed on Monday.
These pamphlets are to be used in
soliciting funds and each has a sub
scription card attached. Arrange
ments are being made to supply all
students with pledge cards who were
not at assembly on Thursday. These
will also be distributed on Monday.
WILL MEET MONDAY
All students from Portland
will meet Monday afternoon at
4 o'clock in Guild ball. The
meeting will be the tlrst gath

held on the campus for several
years. Gome and get together
for a good time.
TWELVE MEN ADD
TAMES TO OSOlir Of
Trip Abroad Appeals to Many,
Reading to Begin Soon,
About 12 university women have
expressed their desire to add their
names to the list of those planning
to make the trip to Europe in 1921,
says Dean Elizabeth Fox. This in
creases the number of the group to 29.
No plans have yet been made for a
club, said Miss Fox. Definite ar
rangements will, no doubt, be made
at the beginning of the second term.
The club when formed will be
primarily for the purpose of direct
ing the reading of the young women
who plan to make the tour. Miss
Julia Burgess, who will accompany
the group, has expressed her willing
ness to make a biology of such liter
ature. It has also been suggested
that those who are to go may desire
to make additions to their university
course of study. European history,
both ancient and modern, art and
French have been suggested as de
sirable courses, and both Dean Fox
and Miss Burgess will be glad to
offer suggestions in the matter of
courses of study for those who con
Dean Fox, who will act in the
capacity of conductor and chaperon
on.the trip, will write to Cook’s and
other tourist agencies in England
Europe asking for their tourist prices
for various itineraries. The charges
will probably be less in accordance
with the number of women who make
the trip, said Miss Fox.
Two Groups May Travel.
The plan as announced before is
for a group of from 20 to 30 wo
men from the university to make the
trip to France, Belgium, Switzerland,
Holland, England, Scotland and
Wales during the summer of 1921,
returning to the United States in
time to reach the university for
the fall term.
Suggesions have been made that
if a sufficient number of women are
interested a few of the group might
sail in March and spend the spring
months visiting the countries of
southern Europe, joining the rest
of the group in June at some stated
No plan was at first made to visit
southern Europe because of the lim
ited time the women would have to
travel and because of the hot weath
er prevailing there in the summer
months. The weather there is de
lightful in the spring and fall, say
those who have made the trip, and
there is little danger of malaria or
other disease at those times.
Cost Estimates Vary.
The group will be chaperoned by
Miss Fox, who was in Europe in war
service, and Miss Burgess, who has
traveled extensively in Europe. Miss
Burgess had planned another trip
to Europe the year the war began
