A GREATER OREGON.
Tlie knowledge and the belief that Oregon is the best
school in the whole wide world is the real basis for the famed
Oregon spirit. Oregon men and women take particular pride
in the things in which their school excels, be it athletics or
scholastic standards. Oregon cannot of course be first in
everything, but it is the aim of every Oregon student to put
his school on top if possible.
In athletics, forensics, or other forms of intercollegiate
competition, Oregon has always ranked at or near the top. j
For many-years, through the capable leadership of one of the
foremost trainers in tlie country, Oregon maintained a leader
ship on the track and field, in football, Oregon is the only
school on the coast which has bedh chosen twice to defend the
honor of the west in an intersectional contest at Pasadena, and
has successfully demonstrated its football prowess for many
years. This year, Oregon won the northwest championship
in basketball for the third consecutive time. In baseball, Ore
gon has always had a team which finished well up towards
the top in the final season percentages.
In forensics, Oregon has several times disproved accusa
tions that it strove for leadership in athletics alone. Lastj
year, as an example, Oregon swept successfully the state, the
northwest and the coast before its debate teams, in addition
to achieving the highest honors in oratory. Forensics for
women, as well as women's athletics have progressed in late
years with much the same general goal—leadership for Ore
In attempting to raise the scholastic standards of the
University, the faculty has also caught the spirit of Oregon.
Oregon students take as much pride in each particular depart
ment or school of the University which excels over that of
some other institution as in a victory in any intercollegiate
competition. If it is for a greater Oregon, Oregon students
are for it.
In attempting to gain leadership in every branch of col
legiate endeavor, Oregon students are but expressing Oregon
Spirit. Because they believe Oregon to be the best school,
thy want it to excel, they want to prove it to the world. Ore
gon is the biggest little school there is. Oregon spirit will
keep it so.
There is a difference between propaganda and publicity.
Oregon doesn’t need propaganda in order to draw students.
Good publicity will draw the right kind, who after all are the
ones we really want. What you know of Oregon is good pub
licity. Take the message home with you* this vacation. Work
for a Greater Oregon.

DISSERTATION ON CORDS.
To the Editor:
There are cords that make me happy,*
There are cords what ain’t cords at all,
There are cords that sure look snappy,
There are cords that make me just
bust out and bawl.
(This poem is original in this paper,
and protected by all manner of legal
documents. Plagairists beware.)
To gain an accurate opinion of upper
class cords it is necessary to get a
broad, circumferential view of them.
Pick some craft decked out in this
raiment and lay a course dead ahead;
get a good look at the front view as you
draw near. Now swing your wheel hard
aport and get the profile view as you sail
past. Next, luff alee, pull down your
canvas and lay to: observe the Southern
or stern end of the rapidly disappearing
craft. You now have a circumferential

naturally pine away and die at some
lonely and bare spot on the long monot

lower plateau of articulated extremity.
Some start out tightly hemmed in at
the inception and blossom out into reg

cling tightly to the frame, as if afraid
to shine in any other than reflected (or
outlined) glory. Others have a ‘don’t

lower casings. Some are glistening

the village some morning and locate an

two of our campus celebrities keep their

the breeze, or it may be that the breeze
already exists, is there ipso facto. The
i uestion that arises in this connection
is: Does a senior at any time walk
fast enough to create a breeze?)

ENGINEER TALKS TO
LAW SCHOOL CLASS
». A. Cupper, of State Highway Com
mission Addresses Students on
Water Rights Subject.
Percy A. Cupper, Oregon State En
gineer from the Highway Office in
Salem, addressed the law school class
in water rights on Tuesday.
Mr. Cupper described the Oregon
system of water titles, a system of laws
governing water rights, which has been
in use in the state of Oregon for the
last 12 years. This system, lie says,
has been very successful, and has been
copied by other states.
He discussed with the law students
the methods of handling wrnter ques
tions in the state highway office, and
the problems which the office has to
Mr. Cupper declares that considering
the present Weather there is something
singularly appropriate about the sub
ject of “water rights.”
