ORGANIZATION VERSUS NUMBERS
The University of Washington has a stsndent bbdy com
posed of some 5000 students; Oregon Agricultural- College
boasts some 3200; Oregon can gather together but 1600. Any
one can readily see how rooting sections from these two larg
er institutions would overshadow Oregon in numbers—at
leasiCtWo or three to one. Noise and volume count tor con
siderable in a game, and Oregon cannot hope to compete with
these larger schools ip the size oi its rooting section nor m
the yolumio of its yells. ,
Bat Oregon can compete in one thing, and can iar out
shadow the largest school on the coast if it will. Oregon
can organize its rooting section into a compact, orderly, well
controlled “Thundering Thousand,?’ which with a complete
knowledge of every yell in the Oregon catalogue, can through
sheer spirit outyell any two or three thousand rooters which
anvt other institution on the coast could gather together!
Oregon undoubtedly has the spirit which makes a root-'
ing1 section mean more to a fighting team than a stand full
of footers without the fighting spirit. But the spirit itself,
altlrpugh it is probably the greatest factor, could not make,
anyiffobtirrg section superior to any which numerically over
shadowed it: Oregon’s rooting section, to be most effective,
must be trained. It must be organized. It must be a com
pact ^Thundering Thousand,’’ yelling as one.
TOJkthis in view, the varsity yelk statif have held weekly
yell practices, during the present year.. Their aim was a root
ers t section organised as never before, prepared to follow ev
ery nawv'0'of their leaders’, prepared to know at a single word
what' encouragement to sing out to their team and prepared
to instill the fighting spirit into their team, in the most ef
That is the aim of the weekly'yell practice, and that is
why, this afternoon, the last rehearsal of the year will be held.
The * Washington game is but little more than a week off.
Are you prepared to give the best you have in the most ef
fective way towards the winning of that game ? This after
noon at , 4:30 on Kincaid field, 'Oregon expects e\y-ry loyal
man and woman to express their approval of a trained, well
organized “Thundering Thousand.’’
OREGON SHOWS THE WAY.
Now that thei state survey of mental detects, delinquen
cy, and dependency is coming- to a close, it may be well to note
that it is absolutely unique in the line of social and mental
hygiene. Chosen as the only course to pursue in making
sucri a survey without any funds available, the extention div
ision accomplished the entire task with voluntary aid from
men in diferent walks of civilian life.
Tn this Oregon again takes the lead.* Until the thing was
practically accomplished under the direction of Or- Chester
L. Carlisle of the. United States public healtlwservice, no one
ever- dreamed that such ah extensive survey could he car
ried cm in this manner. But significant of -the success, of
this method the United States public, health service has com
mended it highly, and recommends it to other states in sim
ilar enterprises. In view of the fact that sueli official recog
nition is seldom given; the University may congratulate
itself on1 being a pioneer in a new field which will mean much
to sbeialogica.l research.
Tt is highly satisfactory to realize'that this new advance
so (.highly .commended comes from Oregon. m>d yet it is not
the only accomplishment of note that Oregon lias demonstrat
ed -recently. The system .of public school music in Oregon,
recently adopted by the state of New York and attracting
public attention in general, found its origin at the University.
Th^se things help raise the standards of the University, and
make people both within the state andover the nation -real
ize that Oregon is up and coming.

WHY DOES SHE SMILE?
To, tlic Editor: Wli.v does my young;
iady smile at. tncV That'a what 1 want
to know. It ecu use when she smiles 1
immediately think there, is some hopi
left mid I ask her to dance or to a show
and then 1 get left - left—left. (This is
a refrain to be chanted by all those in a
similar state of misery) No foolin’
These young ladies on the campus throw
their smiles around awful promiscuous
like. Not being a male vamp, liow’in ]
to know when a smile is a habit, a greet
ing. encouragement, or an invitation? Of
course it’s every man’s duty to make a
fool of himself once in a while. But
when it becomes a habit — to:he foolish'
every week, then it is a horrible degrada
tion of manhood.
Bight now I am unattached, looking;
for a young lady who is the same, or as
nearly unattached as it is fashionable
for;young ladies to lie. Do you suppose
these smiles help me out any? - Nit.
When L>sce n lady sinile 1 say: “Care
ful. m'sou. Don’t rush in when the
house is full. She’s probably dated up
for- the season. That’s just a to-be-filed
for-reference smile.” So 1 hurry on with
downcast orbs, in vain pursuit for a
lady who will take pity ou me.
Now r suggest one of three things:
Either the ladies muzzle their smiles,
(voted down immediately) or else they
have a signal attached to each smile,
to identify it. For example a lady passes
a youug mail. She smiles and says
“Number One.” By that signal the male
portion who is the recipient of the smile
knows it to he merely a habit on the
ladies part, and passes on. If she smiles
and says softly, “Sumner three” -— that
would mean action front for the fellow

f lie hud any get up in his system at all.
This numeral system would simplify
matters wonderfully. Lastly, if the fore
going suggestions arc fox paws, let a
school h * established for the male popu
lation, the subject taught to be the dif
ferent varieties of feminine, smiles, their
approximate meanings, and. the various
shades and degrees attached thereupon.
The instructors to be chosen from
iinong the talented and capable ladies
how attending this institution.
These are a few brief suggestions fori
jny fellow men, puzzled even as I. Let
action be taken. Whassat? I hear a j
cry from the ladies: “The crazee man!.
The very idea of such a ridiculous prop
osition—”. And there we are again —
us men—back up in the air where we
