Campus’ office—80.". _ Downtown office—1200.
Some of the men of the freshmen class are taking advan
tage of the fact that they are not well known on the campus
and are not wearing their freshmen I caps, or are wearing
the issue of the R.O.T.C. at times when they are not on the pa
rade ground. The cadet cap is required only when the first
year men are at drill and does not suffice as a substitute for
the green “derby” on rtther occasions.
Others of the: freshmen are wearing civilian headgear in
direct opposition to one of the foremost of Oregon’s tradi
tions. An upper-classman reports that he asked a freshmen.
Who was not weaving his green hat, why he was not following
the tradition. The answer was that it was raining and ho
didn’t wear it when it rained. Shades of the good old mill
race, have the freshmen forgotten that the wearing of the
green is not only a duty but also a privilege.
By wearing the green hat a freshmen becomes known to
every student on the campus, old and new. He is able to' de
tect other members of his class. There is no question about
laying “Hello” to a man wearing his green lid. A man’s first
year at Oregon should be bis most enjoyable. Everything is
new to-him then and he should try to get the most out of his
year. How, we ask these freshmen, are they going to be in
a position to,carry on Oregon’s traditions in the future, when
the present sophomores, juniors and seniors are no longer in
college. The only way that it can he done is by getting in now
a»d obeying all of the traditions as they go along.
It is the duty of the freshmen class to see that its mem
bers observe the ancient and honorable tradition of first year
men wearing the green hat. 1 jet’s see some action.
a GIVE PRESS
i; : ___
First Hand-Printing Machine
in State at University.
Shipped Around Horn to Honolulu; Later
Reposed on Bottom of Willamette
River For Awhile.
The old printing press, which stands
in the large room of the journalism
“aback,” together with several type
rtwes, a quantity of old fashioned type
and some furniture, were given to the
University by the late Harrison It. Kin
caid, from whom Kincaid field and Ivin-1
(•aid street derive their names and whose I
funeral is to he held today in this
City. The press and other equipment
which were the concrete beginning of the
school of journalism were presented to
the University in 1009 through 'Mr, Kin
caid’s son, Webster, an Oregon graduate
and at present a real estate man of
'Hie first newspaper printed west of
the Rocky mountains was taken from this
press on Feb. r>, 1S4G by Col. William T.
T’VauIt, one of the pioneer publishers of
thy west. For 20 years the press did J
duty in the printing of the Oregon Spec
tator at Oregon City.
At about the time of the close of the
Civil war the press was put on a river
bout to be sent to Mr. Kincaid in Ku
B<ne. An accident, the details of which
are not available, caused the sinking of
the boat somewhere between Oregon I
City and K igouc and the historic press j
rested at the bottom of the Willamette
for some time, just how long it. is not j
known. Ijater it was salvaged and |
brought on to Mr. Kincaid at Eugene.!
For 4-1 years prior to 1909 when he re- |
dyed from the newspaper business and i
turned the equipment of his plant over j
to the school of journalism, Mr. Kincaid
with the ai<! of the press published the j
Oregon State Journal.
From this publication he is said to
have derived a small fortune in the print
ing of land notices for the settlers of this J
part of ‘lie slate. These land notices
were at that time a part of the legal j
procedure in acquiring title to land.
The beginning of the press dates back
to 18.'!0 when if was manufactured in
Philadelphia. Prom Philadelphia it was
shipped around the Horn to Honolulu
and here was published on it one of the
first if not the first newspaper of the
islands. Hater it came to Oregon and
was put into use by Col. T"Vault in Ore
