.Standing in silence with bowed heads
for one minute in honor of the men who
have died in the service, of their coun
try. tlie citizens of Eugene and students
of the University of Oregon at the Arm
istice Day program in the Armory yes
terday morning expressed their feeling
that the day of gratitude and jubilation
should be intermingled with respect for
the fallen warriors. Dean Colin V. Dy
ment, the principal speaker on the pro
gram. emphasized the significance of
t he minute of memorial in the opening
of his address by saying: “How fitting
it is that in the eleventh hour of the
eleventh day of the eleventh month, now
and throughout the centuries, the men
and women of America should pause to
consider the events of IMS.”
Dean Dyment pronounced Armistice
Day, 1918, the greatest day in American
history since 1776. lie said that the
day was yet too new in the national life
to have taken on its final significance.
“It is celebrated with fervor, but its
meaning is still unfixed.” said Dean
Dyment. “What is its spirit to be? Is
it to be merely another holiday? Is it
to be a triumphal day? A day of grat
itude for ojjr deliverance?- A day of*
meuioriftl? Or a day of self consecra
tion to the service of the republic.”
Not a Day for Gloating.
Ip later remarks in bis speech to the
large audience which crowded the chilly
Armory, Dean Dyment said Armistice
Day was too portentous and too sacred
to be devoted to gloating over a fallen
foe, but must for some time yet remain
a. day of gratitude for deliverance and
especially a day of gratitude to those
who made sarcifice, whether at home or
Ben Dorris, commander of the Lane
County post of the American Legion,
paid a tribute to Dean Dyment. who
was searcher with the 01st Division in
France, and Belgium, by saying that
out of the 1500 men who were killed in
the division, details were known in the
eases of all hilt 1.” or 11. Air. Dorris
said said it was through Dean Dymcnt’s
untiring efforts ’ that this remarkable
record was made. The materia! was ob
tained on the field and in the company
Grateful for Deliverance.
Concluding his address, Dean. Dyment
spoke on the ultimate significance of
Armistice Day. We have lost the feel
ing of triumph, if ever we had it. We
are grateful for our deliverance, but the
memory of the shadow will some day
grow dim. We revere our dead, as we
shall ever do; but as years go on. the
names of the dead will pass and they
,will become one collective memory as of
; those who died in the Civil war.
“But Armistice Day will go on —• per
haps for ever. I pray it may not de
generate into merely another holiday. I
call upon all men and all women as the
years go on to consecrate themselves
anew each Armistice Day, and increas
ingly, to the service of the republic.”
Victory Medals Presented.
Following Dean Dyinent’s address,
Major Raymond C. Baird presented
eleven men with victory medals, and
two veterans, Norval W. Orr and Estell
B. Berryman, were presented with four*

During the entire game the fresh showed
their superiority to the Aggie delegation
and at. no time during the battle was
there any. doubt as to the outcome. The
O. A. C. Babes put up a good fight, how
ever. and did not give in until the last
whistle blew. .
The field was very slippery, due to the
rain which began to fall about noon. This
.fact slowed up the game. The struggle
was marked by fumbles on both sides,
but tlie rain seemed to injure the \j-ork
of the O. A. C. men more than that of
the Oregon frosb. O. A. C. tried numer
ous passes but due to the slippery con
dition of the ball only one was com
pleted, and that for no gain.
Burton Bucks Over.
Captain “Kenny” Burton of the frosb
opened the game by kicking off to O. A.
C. Bute Gill of the O. A. O. team took
the ball back for twenty yards through a
broken field and was downed by Burton.

average weight that Coach Huntington’s
line will tip the scales at. According to
the dope from the North, Allison will
use a baekficld weighing a 136 pounds.
