Just who will win the two basketball games this week
end is the big question. California undoubtedly has a won
derful team and Stanford also has a quintet of championship
caliber. The coast title lies between California, Stanford and
Oregon. Oregon wants the title and will fight hard to get it
“Beat California” is the slogan of our campus.,
What would happen if Oregon should win the remaining
games of the season is well known. But what would happen
if we were to lose? Would! the same old Oregon spirit that
this school has always been known for stand up and take the
defeat? Or would students settle back into the unsports
manlike attitude that generally distinguishes cellar cham
The two games this week-end are undoubtedly the big
gest basketball games of the year, because so much hinges
on the results. The sportsmanship of Oregon rooters during
the games last week-end was commendable, but the games
were not so important, they were not so close, and the inter
est was probably not so intense as it Will be tonight and to
Oregon spirit is sportsmanlike. It can take a defeat
graciously and' it can win honorably. We are out to win to
night. But should our varsity be defeated, lets take the de
feat as good sportsmen should. Win or lose, Oregon spirit is
Since the Emerald has adopted a policy not to print
long lists of names of partners for any of the many popular
“lottery dances,” it can suggest that the several pages oi
names be turned over to the Lemon Punch. Eemmy has some
thing like 24 pages, the Emerald but four. The subject mat
ter is usually a joke anyway.
Once upon a time there was an anti-parking ordinance
prohibiting the parking of cars within a certain space on
Thirteenth Street in front of the Administration. Now cars
are parked freely on both sides ot the street, and1 others whiz
by between them. Police!
The Bailv Palo Alto refers to Oregon as one of the “cel

ORIGIN OF CLASS MIX
HAS NEW EXPLANATION
FroshSoph Tussle Suggested in 1911 as
Disciplinary Measure By
Some time ago an article appeared in
the Kmerald describing the manner in
which the tradition of the mutual fresh
man-sophomore under-class mix origin
ated. Mow it seems that the real origin
of the under-class mix was in the fall of
1011 when the junior class, of which
Dean Walker was then president, de
cided to stage the mix its an attempt to
find a suitable substitute for hazing,
which was abolished by the faculty that
The hazing of the freshmen prior to
1011 was done by the sophomores, su
pervised by juniors. When hazing was
banned by faculty action, everyone was
eagerly seeking a substitute. The idea
for the under-class mix was first sug
gested by ‘President Campbell to Dean
Walker early in the fall of the year 1 !>11
The plan was worked out by committees
of it ho junior class, and the first under
class mix was held that fall with unex
The plan outlined at that time ha
been retained practically without change
up until the present time.
