Professor Who Gave Opal Whiteley
Condition in Course in 1917 Writes
Appreciation of Her Work in 1920
(With tlio "Story ot Opal.” the diary
of Opal Whiteley, wonder-child of the
Oregon woods and former student of the
T'niversit.v of Oregon, creating, in book
form, a literary furore in Knglnnd and
America, the Emerald asked W. F. G.
Thaeher. professor of rhetoric, one of
Opal’s former instructors here, to write
liis impression of her work. Professor
Thaeher has graciously complied, in the
interesting appreciation which follows:
Ill spite of (lie embarrassment which
clouds the honor that l feci in being
asked to write a review of Opal White
ley’s Diary, I cannot deny that there is
something of poetic justice in the task.
In 1917, Opal, then a sophomore in the
University, with ft condition in freshman
English to remove, entered my course
in “Short Story Writing.” Because she
failed to perform the required assign
ments. she was given a “condition.” To
day — in 1920 — her “Diary,” famous
throughout the English-speaking world,
is plaeedton the shelves of the Univer
sity library, and Opal Whiteley’s name
.shines lustrously among the literary
.luminaries of the year.
Her book is published — and vouched
for — by one of the most fastidious edi
tors in America — Ellery Sedwick, of
the esoteric Atlantic, appearance in
whose exclusive pages is an achievement
denied to hundreds of professors of
The American edit ion is sponsored
by one of the * best: known university
presidents of the world — David Starr
Jordan, honorary head of Stanford.
The English edition is published with
a preface by Viscount Grey of Falloden,
one of the world’s greatest statesmen.
Truly, a prophet is not without honor.
Perhaps the readers of this review—
which is not a “review” at all, but an at
tempt at an appreciation — will look
for a resumption of the controversy
which raged so hotly at the time of the
first appearance of the Diary in the At
lantic. If so. they will he disappointed.
| The writer, for this occasion at least,
has exercised his will to believe, and
lias' accepted the book at its face value.
Tt is no present concern of bis whether
Opal wrote itlie diary as a child or in
later years: or whether her curious be
lief in an angel father and mother is a
matter of fact or a “fantasy.” Those
skilled in investigation, and with the
evidence close at hand, have failed to
reach a definite conclusion. And cer
tainly Opal is entitled ito he believed 1n
nocent until she is proved guilty. The
discussion is interesting, and not with
out its ethical implications. Hut the
book remains. Shakespeare may not
have written Hamlet. Who cares? The
man who wrote Hamlet IS Shakespeare.
The diary of Opal is a breathing palpi
tant record of the inner life of a highly
sensitive child — a document so poig?
nant in its revelation of inner experi
ence that its counterpart is hardly to
he found in all literature. Many chil
dren — perhaps most — are as sensi
tive as Opal; a few may he as poetically
imaginative; but to these qualities Opal
added the priceless gift of expression—
that gift which alone will unseal the lips
of mute inglorious Miltons — whether
they be children or adults.
To do more than to suggest the con
tents of the book would be to rob the.
reader of the delight of discovery, lie
must not be denied the joy of entering
Opal’s -world, of making the acquaint
ance of her small menagerie of pets; of
going with her, hand in hand, on “ex
plores,” into the dim cathedral recesses'
of the forest; of all her comings and go

Hale and Hearty Is Hale-Real
Filler on Athletic Teams of P. U.
INTRODUCING WII.LLUI G. HALE, I
(loan of the law school.
He is of a generous rather than an !
athletic build. The term "willowy’’ was !
never applied to him even in his college
days at Pacific University, so he says,
hut in an unguarded moment he let him
self he persuaded to go out l'or track.
"Of course I couldn’t run.” he paused
1,1 laugh, "but they used me for a filler.
One time they put me in the 2*_'0 yard
dash. By the time I got to the goal
post there was such a crowd there 1
couldn’t get through. The race had been
over for some time.”
His athletic career thus terminated,
he decided his abilities lay in another
field. Turning to debate lie won glory
for himself and his school us the cham
pion non-stop talker. In 1U0.’> he led a
debate team which won a unanimous de
cision over the U. of * >■ Perhaps that
's where he got the idea of arguing for
a living. Anyway he went back to llar
'urd and studied law for three years.
Then In* liad an awful time deciding
between Oregon and Illinois. He came
to Portland and practiced law for four
years, went to Illinois and taught in tlio
law school for two years, came to Port
land and practiced law for one year, went
to Illinois and taught for eight years,
came to Portland*— let’s begin a new
sentence. He was on his vacation. lie
landed in Portland on Saturday, was of
fered the position of dean of the law
school at Oregon, and on the following
Wednesday accepted the offer. lie lias
decided on Oregon for goud now, and
be says in reality his heart has always
He has set some definite tasks which
he wishes the law school to accomplish.
To secure a higher standard for entrance
to the bar in this state, to keep the law
school in close touch with the bar for
their mutual benefit, to publish a law
school bulletin, these are a few things
he hopes to attain.

CHANGE II VARSITY
DEBITE TEAM MIDE
John Canolle Held Ineligible
Under Conference Rule.
A change in the personnel of the vur- ]
sity debate team has been made because j
it was found by the conference rules
that .John Canolle was not eligible as he
has not been matriculated at Oregon for
three months.- This will prevent his
taking part in either the debate with
Heed or O. A. C. but he will probably be
a member of the team which meets
1’riuceton. Ilis place has been filled by
Carl Meyer, who won. a place us alter
nate in the try-outs.
Debates have been scheduled with
Heed college and O. A. C. for Decem
ber 10. The affirmative team, Remey
Cox and Ralph Iloeber, will meet . the
Reed team at Guild halt and Kenneth
Armstrong and Carl Meyer, the nega
tive team, will meet O. A. C. at Cor
Definite arrangements for the debate
with Princeton have not j et been made,
as no reply has been received since the
Oregon student body wired their accept
ance of the terms which Princeton sub
mitted. These terms were that Prince
ton be allowed to choose the subject for
the debate, and that Oregon should have
the choice of the side of the question*
Since Princeton is planning debate.; with
both Washington University and the
University of Southern California on
their western trip, it is expected that
the same question will be used for all
these meets. Definite news from Prince
ton is expected this week.
Abe Rosenberg, who was chooseu as
an alternate, has dropped because of
heavy school work. Some one of those
who had a high score at the try out will
be chooscn to fill his place.

NOT YET ANNOUNCED
Coaches Pleased With Work
of Men; Hayward Field
To Be Used.
The members of the freshman squad
elected “Kenny” Burton captain of the
team at a meeting held yesterday after
noon. The men felt that a captain
should he elected before the battle with
the O. A. C. Rooks here Armistice Day.
The team has been getting primed for
the game this week and will enter in fine
shape. The men'are in better condition
for the contest than at any other time
this season, according to Coach Bart
Though Bartlett has not definitely de
cided who will be in the line-up Thurs
day, the team seems to be in for a
change from the line-up which starred
the game against Chemawa. The end
berths are being held down by Jess Dig
man and Whipple. Whipple was word
ing at ono of the halves until the begin
ning of this week, lteed and King fire
still playing the tackles. These men
have held their positions from the start
of the season and are both steady, con
sistent players. McKeown and Byler
are the guards. McKeown was tried at
a ta'-kle at the first of the year but wfw
hardly fast enough for that plac?. Line
Coach Williams shifted hitn to a guard
and be has been doing much better. By
ler bus been at the other guard all sea
Bill Johnson is still at center. John
son looks like future varsity material.
He is good at breaking through the line
and stopping an attaek. Arsons and
Burton are at the halves. Burton pl*y
ed at full during the first part of the
season but was hurt when the freshmen
scrimmaged the varsity. He is , new
getting back in fine shape and will bic
able to play the game Thursday. Par
sons is one of the best ground-gainers
on the teum. He has played his pli^te

Oregon Spirit Is Awakened By
Spontaneous Rally Outburst
Impromptu Affair “Like the
Good Old Days;” Shy
“This is the luoiit wonderful rally that
I have ever seen,” was the comment of
Shy Huntington, Oregon football men
tor, as he witnessed, an outburst of Ore
gon Spirit seldom, if ever, seen on the
At seven o’clock students poured si
multaneously from every fraternity, so
rority and dormitory; students stream
ed from the library and private homes,
until hundreds gathered at Villard hall
and gave vent to the uncoutrolable cu- I
thusiasm that raged within each per
son. As the crowd gathered momentum,
me rubers of the football team were pick- 1
ed up one by one. and hurried along, J
As the football Squad filed in und
took their places on the platform, the
I yelling increased until the very halls of
old Villard shook. Huts were thrown
high into the air, and a hmvliing mob
kept Shy and Hill waiting for many min
utes before they would let them speak.
After being cheered time and again
Shy managed to say, how great it was to
know that the students were bebiud the
team. He. promised to take back every
thing that he had ever said about stu
dent spirit at Oregon. He ended, ‘‘If
Washington beats this outfit it will be
the battle of their lives.”
When Bill Hayward was called upon,
the hall became a pandemonium of
noise. lie. stood on the platform waiting
for nearly ten minutes, and as soon as
he would say something the yelling
would resume. Tho message which he
gave to the students was that the team
was going to do their very best- to win
the game Saturday.
“I’ll bet a dollar that Bill Hayward
is sitting up there chuckling to himself,
a half a dollar that Shy’s temples arc
glowing with pride, and thirty cents that
the team is all puffed up to know that
the students are behind them,” was the
way Johnnie. Houston expressed it.
“We’re going to give Washington the
hurdest fight they ever had,” said Bart
Spe'llman, who compared this rally with
some of the rallies in the old days.
Speaking for the team, Bill Steers stated
that they hud been afraid that the stu
dents were not behind them, but that
this Tully was the best thing that could
possibly have happened,
“I get a kick out of walking up here
and heariug you holler,” came from Ken
Bartlett who defined Oregon spirit as
the unexpected. “This is the real Ore
gon spirit,” he said.
Carlton Savage also told about Ore>
gou spirit, and Johnnie Houston made
some filial arrouncements for Home
coming arrangements. He said that
everything would come off smoothly if
every student would tako it upon him
self to see that it did.
