Kezabam Uttereth Words of Wisdom

Ancient Spirit of Oregon Prevaileth ]
BY ALLEN CARNCKOSS.
Now there was a certain man of Ore
gon in those days, named Kezabam, who
dwelt over against the hills in the land
where the University had its beginning.
And Kezaham was one of such who
thirsted for knowledge, and he went
forth to go to the University, and to the
University he came.
Four years he served and studied dili
gently and went forth a man of wisdom,
well favored by the people in the coun
try round about.
And 'behold, the spirit of Kezabam
came mightily unto the students of Ore
gon and each went among his fellows, not
after the manner of the Pharisee who
treadetli with averted nose, but with the
joy of one who serveth his brethren ex
ceeding much. And the fame of the
University was noised through all the
Now each year it was the custom of
Kezabam to return to the University,
and each year he saw that the spirit of
Oregon was goodly withall.
But. in the fortieth year of the Uni
versity the anger of the king of the
tribes of (iermany was kindled against
America, of which Oregon is a part, and
he said, Let there be war.
And there was war, and the mighty
men of valor who were strong and apt
for battle went forth from the Uni
versity and waged war exceedingly
against the tribes of Germany and scat
tered them extensively hence with ar
tillery and divers slaughter weapons.
But when the thunder of the captains
and the shouting had died many of the
valiantest came again no more upon the
University. And a shadow was cast over
Oregon and men served not with great
spirit as was the custom beforetimes.
Now in the second year of peace in
the land, in the ninth month of the year,
the doors of the University were opened
yet again unto those who sought the
paths of light and wisdom.
And there came men from the east
country and the north country and from
the remote coasts of the earth, even
fi'om Castoria and Prineville came there
men, and the coining thereof was ex
And women from Bethmeow and Mis
gah and the country which lieth around
Portland came also, and their beauty
was as the radiance of the morning.
And Kezaibam came likewise, even un
to the l Diversity. and the years of
Kezabam were not numbered for multi
tude and his whiskers were as the tail
of the white horse which gocth forth to
But his heart was mighty within him.
and when he saw that the spirit of Ore- j
gon was low, he rent his mantle and
lifted up his voice and wailed with an
exceedingly loud and bitter wail.
And behold, the spirit of wisdom came
mightily unto him. and lie smote himself
upon the thigh and cried aloud, (Jo to.
the spirit of Oregon will return even to
the days of its youth.
And forthwith he made speech unto
every class, even unto the freshmen, ac
cording to the language thereof, saying.
Give ear. O ye chosen people, for this
day ye go forth in vain pursuits and
make the name of Oregon as nothing]
Is it that, the bride forgetteth her j
wedding garment? Rem embe rest not
the tomcat the alley which leadeth to his
home? Yet ye have forgotten the high
way of your fathers who were before
Behold. I am Tradition. Beforetimes
when I spake in council all /nen gave
heed to the voice of my words. There
fore, my (brethren, hearken to the plead
ings of my lips and serve ye one another
that the name of Oregon may be still
more honored in the land.
And when the students heal'd these
things they said, one unto another, Be
hold, the lips of >Keza<bam are filled with
wisdom and understanding. Therefore
we shall incline our ears attentively un
to him and give heed to his counsel so
that the name of Oregon shall prevail.
And it was so.
