>■" Monday afternoon an impromptu rally burst forth on the
e&rnpus in celebration of Saturday’s victory over (Washing
ton^ Perhaps the majority of the student body gathered in
fipnt of Villard to hear speeches and to give yells. Oregon
spirit parried students that far, but it was not Oregon spirit
that took the students further. It was the feeling of most of
tfiose who attended the rally that a successful celebration
coulid not be staged without a danoe. And forthwith, in spite
of the warnings of the A. S. U. 0. president, and in spite of
the declaration by the varsity yell king that the rally was
oVer, the larger share of the student body marched downtown
t, The occurrence is history now. Although no penalties
hgve been fixed by the faculty, and it is hoped none will be,
ih« Emerald would like to know if the leaders of the dance
movement, if there were any, feel that they were boosting
Oregon or Oregon spirit by encouraging students to cut classes
and"to dance on a regular class day??
. For those students who cut no classes, there should be no
pepnlt^ fixed by the faculty; for those who did cut classes, the
pjppulty should be that of an ordinary absence. The move
ment was entirely natural, and it is the general belief that
there were no leaders. Yet there should be some censure given
to the students who took part in the demonstration following
ike rally on Villard steps, censure expressed by those upper
classmen who know that true Oregon spirit does not find ex
pression in a self-determined half-holiday and a dance.
The fundamental purpose of a university is to supply
knowledge to its students. When those students defy their
teachers to the extent of taking an afternoon off, it makes a
serious break in the carefully planned class programs for the
quarter. Such a defiance as that of Monday afternoon gives
the faculty a right to name a punishment for those who at
Iggst led the movement.
v' From the other angle, Oregon spirit, which perhaps the
University has capitalized too much, still cannot be crushed
by faculty action. If those students who took part in the
impromptu dance dally and whole-heartedly believed that they
Were performing an important service towards upholding
Oregon spirit, they should not be censured. But it is doubtful
if there were any who thought that.
The temptation of a half-holiday combined with a popu
lar afternoon dance was too great for those who succumbed,
apd Oregon spirit was only seized upon as a likely excuse.
Was the Oregon football eleven heartened by the knowledge
that other students were permitted to dance while they must
practice for the coming games? M as the supposed spirit of
the dance conveyed to them in any way ? The purpose of a
rgljy is to imbibe not only the participants, but those for
Whom dicers are given as well, with the spirit of the occas
ion* How much of this spirit of Monday afternoon was car
ried to the practice field? The dance Saturday night should
have been the celebration of Monday afternoon.
If Oregon should defeat 0. A. C. next Saturday, the Uni
versity authorities might be prevailed upon to "grant the
student body the privilege of holding a celebration. But ail
unauthorized celebration should not break out during class
hours. Let’s have a rally celebration by ;vll means, but let
if be the right kind.
No student who has ever spent his last cent to witness an
0. A. (’.-Oregon football game lias ever regretted it. It is
the one grand football fight of the year. This year, the two
teams are more evenly matched than for several years, ac
cording to scores made by both teams against Washington.
The Aggies won from the northerners on their home field at
Seattle, while Oregon playing on Hayward field defeated the
Sim Dodgers by a somewhat larger score. The Aggies have
been greatly strengthened since their last game, however,
gpd the Oregon eleven realizes that it will face the season’s
hardest gamo next Saturday. Oregon fight may decide the
game, and a fighting rooters section is needed for support.

It is certain that Ed Ward who suf
fered a broken collar bone in the Stan
ford game will not be able to start
against the Aggies. Ed is in all prob
ability laid out for the rest of the sea
son. but be hates to admit it and stays
with the team through practice every
night. Frank Hill is suffering with an
attack of boils which is keeping him out
of practice this week, so it is not prob
able that the speedy little hack will be in
condition to get into the game at Cor
vallis. This is so far the extent of the
hospital lift, barring any sickness which
may come up this week.
The Oregon line will he outweighed
about 10 pounds or more by the Aggies
iu the game. O. A. C. has an extremely
( heavy line this year and one which the
speedy California backs were hard put
to penetrate, nor, did Washington make
any yardage through the Aggies line.
but then Washington did not malt'* any |
vardage through the Oregon 'ini’ either
and Oregon has not played California,
rhe Aggies backfield will probably slack
up to about the same weight as the
lemon-yellow quartet, although they may
have a slight advantage. Huge Mc
Kenna, the 135 pound quarterback of
the Aggies wifi bring their weight aver
age down ns compared with “Hill”
Steers, Oregon’s 180 pound pilot.
It is definitely announcer*. Trom the
Corvallis campus that “Gap” Powell, the
Aggie star fullback will not. be in the
tame against Oregon. Towel] was seri
ously injured in the Washington game
and has been out ever since. Just how
much difference it would make in the
Aggie team if be were in the line-up. is
a matter for speculation. According to
pretty reliable information, Powell di'
aot play up to his standard in the Wash
ington game, or in the early season
games this year. Powell was at his best
in the Oregon-O. A. C. game last year.
Probably tonight will see the last
serimmage on the old practice field this
year for the Oregon squad. Hast night’s
work was taken up in offensive scrim
mage for the first string while it is ex
pected that a little defensive scrimmage
drill may be run off tonight. The team
will then probably be content with light
sjgnal workouts until Saturday. The
first of next week will see the squad on
their way to Los Angeles to play the fast
University of Southern California eleven
on Thanksgiving Day.
