MORE CLASS SPIRIT.
There is at the present time practically no class spirit in
the University of Oregon. Old alumni and ex-students will
marvel in this statement, recalling as they will the fact that
ih the Old days everyone knew every other member of his
elgss and that rivalry between the four different classes was
quite keen. In those days class athletic contests used to be
the big features of the year, and students never lost an oppor
tunity to show the superiority of their class over any other.
An old graduate once said to an entering freshman class
that although alumni would always be glad to greet any stu
dent of the University of Oregon, it was their own classmates
whom they really enjoyed meeting, and that it was the Class
friendships formed during college days that outlasted even
fraternity and club ties. Just now a deplorable condition ex
that should be remedied. Even in the senior class, there
afp many members who do not even know the names of their
_ More informal class parties, more interclass athletic con
tests, dnd more frequent class meetings are the remedy for
the situation.; Interclass athletic contests have given wav to
other things more or less in recent years, and only occasion
al)^ do such affairs find a place in intramural activities. Class
pdfties are only occasionally given, although they are still
recognized as the best means of becoming acquainted with
Cvery member of one’s class. Class meetings are held now
ottiy when important class matters come up, often at times
when every member of the class cannot attend.
•. It might be advisable to allow a certain night during each
term when each class might hold an informal class party. In
totclass football games, as well as other,athletic contests,
Wmdd no doubt create as much interest as in past years. Class
meetings used to he held during the assembly hour in place
bf the regular assembly in past years, and even if the classes
have no important business to conduct it is a good means of
arousing some of the latent class spirit and acquainting every
one a great deal more with the members of his class.
Class spirit should be second only to the larger Oregon
spirit. Doubtless everyone recognizes the need for"more clash
spirit. Let’s have it!

“Oil* I didn’t Know tliat anybody
know about it,” said . Miss Gertrude
Lyons, a junior in the University, when
asked to tell about her election to the
county superintendency of Grant county.
She has been county superintendent
elect ever since November 2.
Being well trained in modern etkiuette,
the Emerald representative didn’t ask
Miss Lyons her age, but anybody could
tell by lookiug at her that she isn’t,
fifty—oh; dear, no, not more than half
that—she hasn’t a single gray hair. That
is surprising, too. when you learn that
she has taught school. That’s the way
she earned her money to go to Belling
ham State Normal in Washington.
She graduated from there in 1018.
and then she ratne back to Grant county !
in her native state of Oregon and taught j
some more. Though she was teaching
in her home town, and they say a poet is
unrecognized on his native heath (or
something like that), !|he was discov

ables one to discover just how much

she plans to make a survey of the

any part thereof eotnes out that way, she
will carry it, or them, about in her ma

just the same, she’ll go on horseback.

opinion, we’d predict that Grant county
is going to have a mighty good superin

anything but sagebrush, ■ and sheep, and
wheat, and timber, and endless oppor
