THE SOLDIERS’ MEMORIAL.
One great undertaking is confronting us: We must erect,
on the campus of the University, some suitable and fitting
memorial for those University of Oregon students who made
the supreme sacrifice in the world war. The movement for
the memorial has long bee# under way, and much work has
already been done upon plans, but by far the greater part re
mains to be done. It is unnecessary to launch upon any rea
sons for the memorial—it is but the least that Oregon can do
to honor those forty-three who gave their lives for their coun
A committee has been working among alumni and friends
of the University for some time, gathering ideas, interest and
moral support. As yel, no definite plans for the memorial
have been decided upon, the committee preferring to gather
ideas at present in an endeavor to find some plan Avliich will
The plan for a soldier’s memorial has been approved by
resolutions of the alumni association, the l'hCulty, the regents,
and the associated students. Chairmen have been appointed1
among the alumni for each class from 78 to ’22, and the per
sonal approval of the plan for a suitable memorial of each of
these chairmen was published in the last issue of “Old Ore
gon,” the alumni bi-monthly magazine.
So far the work has been carried principally to the
alumni. But the students arc anxious to do their part in the
erection of a memorial, not only now, when ideas, interest,
and moral support are needed, but later, when the time comes
for the actual pitting over of the campaign to erect whatever
memorial is selected.
The last issue of “Old Oregon” was dedicated to the
soldier memorial, and one article in particular, entitled, “The!
Memorial Situation, Briefly,” sums up, in its closing para
graphs, the proposition and the questions which confront
those in charge of the erection of the memorial. It says:
“Each Oregon man and women is respectfully in
vited and earnestly urged to speak his or her mind on
the matter of a soldier memorial.
“Shall the memorial he useful, or ornamental, or a
combination of utility and decoration ?
“Shall it conform to the atmosphere of the old cam
pus where the dead heroes spent their college days, or
shall it voice our message of love and respect from a
proud vantage point on the future campus center?
“Shall the memorial lx* financed entirely by the Uni
versity family, or should contributions be invited from
the general public? ,
“Shall we fix the amount which we feel that we can
hope to raise, or shall we confess no limitations what
“Shall we hasten the memorial or shall we follow a
deliberate course, making'certain that we are right in
our decision ?
“As tollowers ol the bunion'Yellow who recognize
the everlasting debt wo owe our University and our
state—a debt we can never presume to repay in any
thing like adequate measure—-and as, above all. God
fearing, government-loving Americans who cherish the
rich traditions of our country and honor those who
serve our nation heroically, let us dedicate our very best
thought and pledge our most earnest purpose to this
The adoption of the new revised constitution this morning
at assembly is a certainty, but let that deter no one from vot
ing against the revised pact in case lie is not in favor of it. The
majority of the students realize that the new constitution is
a great improvement over the old, and that the re-arrange
ment of the financial system means a great saving to the as
sociated students each year. Be there and vote this morning.

EUGENE HI TO DEBATE
, IN FINALS ON CAMPUS
Wins South Willamette Championship;
Representatives of 12 Districts
Here Junior Week-End.
With Eugene winning over Riddle high
school here for the championship of the
south Willamette district and district
championships being decided in 11 other
towns of the state the semi-finals of the
Oregon interscholastic debate league
ended last Friday. The twelve district
winners will be brought to Eugene on
Junior week-end and decide the state
championship in a series of debates on
the campus. Six out of 12 districts have
reported winners to Professor John C.
Almaek. who is conducting the debates
under the auspices of the University of
Mr. Almaek reports the known win
ners. who will meet on the campus Jun
ior week-end to determine the state
championship, as: Salem in the north
Willamette district; Eugene won from
Riddle Friday thus placing first in the
south Willamette district; Knappa in
the lower Columbia district; Heppner in
the Umatilla district: Burns in the
southeast. Klamath Falls high school
is to represent the south central dis
trict here during Junior week-end.
With tl e preliminary debates finished
the extension division is now preparing
a questionnaire to be sent each of the
winning teams for the purpose of find
ing out what methods they prefer to use
in the finals.
The winning team is to be presented
with a cup, which has twice been won
by Salem. Corvallis was the winner
last year. It is the desire of every team
to prove superior to the north Willam
ette team this year in order to prevent
them from winning the Almaek cup for
n third time. If Salem wins the cup again
this year it will become a permanent
possession of that high school.
