UPHOLDING THE SPIRIT.
It is the favorite topic of “older heads” to hark back to
the “good old days’,’ when Oregon Spirit was so deeply im
bedded in the minds of every student that Oregon was, enabled
to accomplish anything by reason of its presence. As a mat
ter of fact, the good old Spirit was no better then than it is
now, nor was it able to accomplish more. It was simply that
the school was smaller and the spirit more unified.
In those days a small body of rooters lended themselves
more to organized rooting than they do now. The yell-leader
was the king-pin. He was the care-taker of Oregon Spirit,
and' every student became his active assistant.
This year, partly because of the growth of the student
body, and partly because* of other things, the yell-leader is not
the real leader of Oregon Spirit. There are too many assist
ants, too many divergent opinions, and too many rooters for
any one man to handle. The yell-leader needs able lieuten
ants. At Washington there is an organization called the
Knights of the Hook. They are the lieutenants of the
guardian of the spirit of that institution. And at other insti
tutions are similar organizations whose motto is “serVice,”
with the upholding of campus traditions and! spirit as their
Here, the “Order of the ‘O’ ” and “Fro-tra-co” have
combined to enforce the observance of Oregon traditions and
the proper Oregon Spirit among the freshmen. Very com
mendable. But why not go further and act as lieutenants to
the varsity yell-leader in the maintenance of the proper Ore
gon Spirit among all the members of the student body. Either
or both organizations could do this.
A correspondent suggests the wearing of rooters caps at
times in a letter. Various pleas have been made for good
sportsmanship at athletic contests. Enforcement of the “non
pigging” tradition at athletic* contests has been asked. Who
could better lay down the law on such matters than such or
ganizntions as the “Order of the ‘O’ ’’ or “Fro-tra-co?”
Any yell-loader needs such lieutenants. The members of
the organization of varsity letter-men are the logical lieuten
ants of the letter-men. They could make themselves a real
force on the campus by such an activity. “Fro-trft-co” is yet
young, and if it is tine intention of this organization to take
over such a responsibility they need the support of such au<
organization as the “Order of the ‘O’ ” lo help them now.
Wliat do you think?
The big question is: “Can we heat California,?” Win or
lose, “you can’t beat Oregon fight.” And if anything Avillj
beat the Bears, Oregon fight will.
LIST SPRING DIETS
Use of Vegetables Eliminates
Need of Pills and Tonics.
“Have you oaten any green vegetables
today?” 'lliis query heads the Univer
sity Healtli Bulletin of February 10,
which goes on to tell why garden greens
should he eaten in abundance at this
time of year. The bulletin states that
those who eat plenty of mustard, spin
ach, turnips, carrots, and cabbages as
a part of their daily diet will not need
spring tonics, rest cures and pills.
"Onions,” says the bulletin, “are always
in season, and when properly prepared
give no after effects, except that they
are especially efficient as health and

that “Cleanliness is a sure cure for

STATUE TO BE PLACED
IN NEW QUADRANGLE
"Spirit of Oregon Mother”, By Fairbanks
Will Be In Space Between
Avard Fairbanks’ new piece of sculp
ture which represents the spirit of the
Oregon mother, protecting, guiding, and1
inspiring the young girls of today, will
be placed in the plot of ground between
the women’s gymnasium and the new
unit of Hendricks hall.
The figure of a girl, clinging with one
hand to the statue representing home
life and Oregon home spirit, extends her
other hand symbolizing a person reaching
for knowledge and higher education. This
hand will point toward the University.
The discovery of Grand Canyon of
Colorado is also being worked out in
clay by Mr. Fairbanks. It is the statue
of Escalante, a Franciscan monk who
went from Mexico in the early seventeen
th century, in search of the mythical
seven cities, which the Indians told of.
Not finding them, he returned to Mexico.
The piece of sculpture represents a monk
with his left arm raised hiding a cross.
On his right side is an animal.
Mr. Fanrbanks’ work was commended
highly by the party of architects who
were on the campus Monday.
LIBRARY GETS BOOKS
"History of the A. E. F.” and "Soldiers
All,” of Interest to Men.
Several new books have just been re
ceived in the library amohg which are
two that will be of special interest to
overseas men. One is the “History of
the A. E. F.” by Shipley Thomas, Cap
tain, 26th U. S. infantry, first division,
A. E. F. This contains maps, dia
grams and illustrations, and the history
of the different offenses and defenses,
life in training sections, the German re
treat from the Marne, etc.
The other is “Soldiers All,” a book of
portraits and sketches of the men of
the A. E. F. by Joseph Cummings
Chase, giving a short biography of each,
citations for bravery, medals awarded,
Another-book of interest is the ‘Quad,’
year book put out by the junior class of
Leland Stanford University last year.
This was received in exchange for the
BRINGS GOOD RESULTS
Co-operative Spirit Lauded
By Miss Robertson.
That the results of the health eam
paigiioon the campus are beginning to be
noticed, is the opinion of Miss Grace
Robertson. University health nurse. The
majority of the underweight girls are
gaining, the greater percent of the
' students who have never eaten breakfast
now enjoy that meal with all the “trim
ming's,” and the gi.rls are waking up to
the situation, are taking an interest in
it and co-operating with the health de
Miss Robertson is enthusiastic about
her work, and her enthusiasm is con
tagious. The home nursing course which
she taught last fall was so popular that
two section had to be organized this
| term, in addition to the first aid
and Child Welfare course. She looks
upon the girls in her classes as disciples
who will spread the doctrine of good
health and prevention, and said, “It is
\most gratifying to see how well the girls
who have taken the course care for the
girls in the houses who are ill.”
While Miss Robertson loves teaching,
| she feels that her greatest opportunity
for service lies in the public health
work. She is ready to go to any of the
students who need her at any time.
“Tell the girls how 'much I appreciate
the spirit of co-operation that exists
whenever I make a call,” she said.
“They are always so lovely about doing
what is best.”
It was while in Siberia and Russia,
where she cared for the undernourished
and tubercular children of those coun
tries, that Miss Robertson became in
terested in the work of prevention and
realized the necessity of building up re
Miss Robertson said that although she
had never had any calls from the men’s
houses on the campus she would gladly
go when the boys need her if they would
