BACK THE VARSITY.
You fellows who have been bemoaning the lack of Ore
gon Spirit during basketball season—
This afternoon at 1:50, the varsity tossers leave for Cor
vallis ' - play 0. A. C. a two-game series. It is probably the
last time they leave the campus for conference games. They
will meet a fighting team at Corvallis and they need the sup
port of Oregon students. How about a little send-off at the
dfepot about train time ?
O. A. C. had a thousand students at the train last, week
^ben their basketball team returned from California with not
a'win to their credit. Oregon’s varsity didn’t return from,
tjheir northern trip in a body, so such a demonstration was
impossible. But Oregon has a fighting team, a team that will
fight the Aggies till the final whistle. That team has a fight
ing' chance to top both conferences. On the 0. A. C. games
depends a great deal. Show that team that we are behind
; Fifty seats have been reserved for Oregon rooters at Cor
vallis Friday night, and a hundred more for Saturday night.
A big crowd will be over there. Those who will be unable to
go, and some of those who will, can back that teaf by giving
them a real Oregon send-off this afternoon. Beat the Ag
giesl Be at the depot at 1:50 this afternoon!
Blame it on the women! When you call on one of the sis
ters. they all rush and greet you like a rich uncle with one
Hoof in the grave. But on the campus—the pioneer hands out
a warmer greeting. At that there’s nothing wrong with the
Oregon "hello”. AU one has to do is to say it.

Rapidly to Students.
There are only two or three days
i more for the men of the University to
; avail themselves of the opportunity to

These books are sent to the various col

collection next but will not get very
many at the rate they have been selling.
This is not a money making scheme as
, the “Y” does not make a penny on the
! sales. The purpose is to enable the men
| to inspect and buy the books that are
i really valuable and interesting, but not

j are still selling at the old price which is
I about twenty-five per cent under the
