IN REPLY TO THE BAROMETER,
The Barometer, O. A. C.’s student publication, is quite sus
ceptible to the long-range fluctuations of the somletimes un
controllable Oregon Spirit. An editorial in a recent number
of the publication of our sister institution, reprinted m an
other column of this issue of the Emerald, declares that the
standard of courtesy shown here at Oregon is inconceivable.
Our worthy contemporary has imposed upon Oregon a “boast
ed: culture,” and then ruthlessly stripped the University ot
that culture, leaving us, in the eyes of the Barometer’s many
readers, devoid of gentlemanly and sportsmanlike prin
ciples. , ■ .
The iconoclastic editorial referred to was written m con
demnation of the reception given to a group of 0. A. C. letter
men who visited Eugene to witness the Oregon-Multnomah
game. In apologizing for this spirit of rivalry unwisely dis
played on the spur of-tlie moment, the Emerald begs for a
word of explanation. The Barometer accuses the Oregon
robtera Unjustly. True, the men students sang the little ditty
referred tain a manner so vividly worded ip the objurga
tory editorial, hut they sang it with smiles and intermingled
(.Tighter; true, the band failed t-b finish the 0. A. 0- song, hut
if the person who carried the word back to the Barometer edi
torial sanctum were a student of crowd psychology lie would
read in those performances not malice, not hatred, not an ab
sence of “boasted culture” hut just humor unwisely ex
But the Barometer does not even remotely refer to an ex
tenuating circumstance which, in the opinion of the Emerald,
nieasureably alleviated tlie previous wrongs. The Barometer
does not tell its readers that the students of the institution at
Eugene, which “turns out polished ladies and gentlemen,.”
gave 0. A. 0. a yell, a. sincere sportsmanlike yell which part
ly atoned for the previous misinterpreted humor.
Nevertheless, such action on the part of Oregon students
is to be condemned. Although w»> do not. “boast of our cul
ture” we should demonstrate to publications which judge
the culture of an institution by the actions of its students at a
football game, that we do receive culture at Oregon.
The students of the University sincerely apologize to the
highly-offended Barometer for the unpremeditated outburst
of spirit. But the editorial referred to might have caused
more unfriendly feeling among new students who do not un
derstand the friendly rivalry existing between tlu* two great
state institutions than a hundred such trivial displays of un
The Emerald assures the Barometer that inhospitable root
ing and booing of 0. A,. (’. men who attend Oregon games will
not happen again. A friendly rivalry between Oregon and
0. A. 0. is necessary, hut some other means must In* found to
foster such a spirit.

U. of 0. CULTURE.
' (O. A. C. Barometer.)
to view of the supposed culture of
our sister institution ut Eugene, it is
difficult for u student of (>. A. ('. to con
trive of the standard of courtesy set. up
at the university, as shown by the way
it treats its visitors. In the popular
mind the university is supposed to turn
out polished ladies and gentlemen, while
the college tends more to the practical.
In actual practice, however, such does not
seem to be the ease.
The only wuv of judging the extent (of
culture in any institution is by the action
of its students. Examples of typical Ore
gon spirit in this regard are too numer
ous to mention. Let a few recent ones
suffice. Last Saturday a number of O.
A. C. students, including several letter
men. went over to Eugene to see the
university play Multnomah. Epon (heir
arrival the crowd sang r. song, the prin
cipal refrain of which ran “To hell with
O. A. This hospitable reception
was greatly appreciated. It helps to
ward n friendly feeling between the two
institutions. Following this the band
started to play an O. A. C. song, but
after a few measures burst forth into
one grand discord.
It is hard to reconcile such action
with the university’s boasted culture.
We at O. A. may be trained among
the cattle and chickens, but we are
trained to be courteous to our guests.
We have been taught that terming vis
itors ‘'cattle” was not the essence of
We must not now lower our standard
by dealing iu the t\ of O. method. Tf
Oregon men are present at the game to
morrow. they will bo treated as guests.

THE FORUM )
To the Editor: — L am sure that the
students of the University do not real
ize all of the agencies which there ore
on the campus to help them solve their
problems. One of the regulations of the
Student laving Committee is that no new
clubs or fraternitie shall be formed in
the University unless they have first the
approval of this committee.
The object of this rule, is not to cur
tail the formation of clubs, particularly,
but to give them such sound advice that
they may be founded along lines which
will make for permanence and strong or
ganization. The committee has accumu
lated information of many sorts which
would be very useful to a group which
expects to run a house and to equip it
or furnish it as living quarters.
The committee has also some experi
ence in the matter of leases and is able
and willing to help protect a new group
in their relations to the landlord. The
committee will also lie able to furnish
estimates for the year's budget and in
many other ways is prepared to aid and
assist a new group.
Yours very truly,
JOHN F. BO YARD,
Chairman Student Living Committee.
