No matter what our feelings may have been yesterday,
today we are all for one man—Coach “Shy” Huntington.
He is to be our coach next year, and he is to have our
united support throughout the next football season. And be
tween ^now and the end of next season, let there be nothing
Said against the man. The unanimous opinion of the athletic
council should reflect the opinion of the students, alumni, and
faculty which it represents. We join with the athletic coun
cil in voting unanimously for him.
“Shy” Huntington has been discussed and re-discussed
in the columns of the Emerald, and not one word has been
said against him as a man. “Shy” is a man all the way
through. Few have said things against his ability as a coach.
The football men believe that he has the ability to direct
teams, and the entire country believes them. “Shy” is known
ni all parts of the country. The Harvard game, and the pub
licity which followed and preceded that game assures that.
“Shy” is a good student of football. His students know and
believe in his knowledge of the game.
The chief criticism which has been directed against ‘Shy’
has been made indirectly. “Sliy” represents the graduate
coach system, and in past years this system as used at Oregon
has-not proved successful. It has been said that the graduate
coach system is a breeder of dissension among students and
players. But that cannot be the fault of a fair coach. It is the
fault of an oversensitive student body. In presenting the pe
tition to the athletic council asking for the abolishment of the
graduate coach system, it was said that there was a feeling
among the students that partiality had; been shown by a grad
uate coach. If the truth were known, it would likely prove
that “Shy” has been the opposite of partial; he has gone out
of his Way to give those who claimed they were not receiving
a square deal an opportunity to prove their merits when he
otherwise could not have done so. If a player deliberately
lays down on a coach, no one could blame the coach for refus
ing!.to allow that player to remain on the team.
Petty politics are present on any campus. They should
not be allowed to affect football. It has not been campus poli
tical that has caused the situation which was ended by the ath
letic council last night. It, has been disgruntled individuals,
who tpok care to spread their disagreeable thoughts among
oth^r students. And those students were not working for a
Greater Oregon or a winning eleven. They are working for
individual glory, and failing to gain that, they have vented
their spite on the coach. Politics will be with us perhaps al
lways. They are almost a necessity. But He’s not besmirch
our school by allowing petty disgruntled feelings of individ
uals to influence student, sentiment and with that, student
polities, so that it will work against Oregon.
There is only one way to work for a mightier Oregon dur
ing the coming year, and that is to back our coach. We are
all for “Shy.”
All apology is duo the business men of Eugene by a stu
dent who sought to use the columns of the Emerald to attack
tho downtown merchants who signed the petition asking for
the retention of the graduate coach system at Oregon. The
policy of the Emerald has always been to print all communica
tions addressed to the editor if the writer made known his
identity, whether or not he wished his name to appear as the
signer of the communication in the columns of the paper. Any
one who does not appreciate what has been done for the Uni
versity and its students bv the business men of Eugene can lay
no claim to being a loyal Oregon student.
The question was not whether the business men had any
right to take sides in the coaching situation. It is whether or
not Oregon students are willing to have downtown merchants
take an interest in the activities and affairs of the school. The
writer of this communication, we believe, does not represent
the opinion of any large campus group. Oregon has always
boasted of the friendly co-operation between the citizens of
Eugene and the University. That friendship cannot bo broken
by any student who becomes so worked up over a situation
that he would sacrifice anything in order to gain his j>oint.
Oregon hopes for the continued friendship and co-operation
of business men and citizens of Eugene.
The “Price at any price’’ gang, the “Oobie or die” bunch,
and the “Bezdek or bust ” element have given wav before the
“I’m for ‘Shy’ ” body of which every loyal Oregon student
is a member.

Knowledge of Languages Desirable.
High school physics and chemistry are
desirable because these subjects, in col
lege, usually require high school prepara
tion. Latin is required either as a prep
aratory subject or in college by a num
ber of medical schools, and is according
ly recommended, especially since stu
dents having completed the first three
years of the seven year medical course
of this university may desire to take
their last four years elsewhere. A rend
ing knowledge of both French and Ger
man is considered highly desirable by the
time the third college year is reached.
One noted school in the east requires
both languages for entrance.
An outline of the medical course for
the first year includes general chemistry,
13 hours; general biology (including lec
tures on the history of medicine), 12
hours; English, niue hours; physical
education and military science, six to
nine hours; and a choice of either mathe
matics, 11 to 12 hours, or French or
German, 15 hours.
Clinics to be Visited.
In the second year are offered organic
and quantitative chemistry, 12 hours;
physics, 12 hours; biology, 12 hours, and
from six to nine hours in physical edu
cation and military science. Besides
these, the student is expected to con
tinue with his elective. For graduation,
nine hours credit are required ill one
course in one of the following groups:
Social sciences (including economics,
philosophy, history, psychology and edu
cation), or public speaking, art, drawing,
or music. In addition to this, medical
students in the first and second year will
be expected to visit about five clinics
yearly, under appropriate supervision.
For the third year the course includes
chemistry, three hours; biology (human
physiology, general physiology, and gen
eral bacteriology), 12 hours; psychology,
six to eight hours: and electives, either
25 or 20 hours. The course in psy
chology, which covers two terms, is es
pecially designed for medical students in
place of the three term course in ele
mentary psychology for general stu
dents. It normally follows a course in
psychology dealing especially with the
nervous system.

Whether the react ion from the effect of
the defeat at Seattle will have a Rood
or bad effect can be told better after
Friday night. Coach Bolder is of the
opinion that the strain on the physical
condition of the men in the six hard
games played last week is responsible
for the defeat at Seattle and that the
reaction will be one which will be of
benefit to the men.
