LADY LIKE BLEACHERITES.
“E. V. P. *21,” evidently believes that the. Emerald
would have Oregon students at baseball games behave as stu
dents of a g-irl’s seminary at a theology lecture. Lest anyone
else construe the same meaning from the harmless paragraph
in yesterday’s editorial column, let’s get things straight, as
the correspondent suggests.
Baseball is perhaps unlike any other sport, in that no
rultte of sportsmanship place any severe check upon what a
fan may or may not say during the game. He may call the
umpire anything he wishes, as long as his own conscience does
not bother him or he may make any remarks he wishes about
tlie opposing team. He can say just what he pleases as long
as he does not challenge the sympathies of his fellow-rooters.
A baseball game would hardly be worth while were it not for
the wag who likes to exercise liis lungs and keep the crowd!
amused. Far from advising against such practices, the Emer
ald would encourage them.
The Emerald does not claim for itself any such power as
that construed by the correspondent who asks: “Are we go
ing to he permitted to uncork our voices at a baseball game
only when called upon.The Emerald does not wish
to permit or not permit. It wishes to advise and counsel, but
not to attempt alone to regulate campus customs.
We would all like to ehcourage good sportsmanship at
Oregon. “To applaud bone-head plays of the opposing team,”
far from being sportsmanlike, is very unsportsmanlike. But
whether it would be better to applaud such plays, “E. V. P.”
can probably reason for himself. Such things as applauding
spectacular plays of the opposing team do, however, merit
applause, and there are several methods of showing sports
manship which exery student knows for himself.
The Emerald would like to establish a reputation of good'
sportsmanship for Oregon, but it. would consider “Oregon
spirit” sacrificed were the bleachers forced to conduct them
selves in a lady-like manner throughout an exciting game un
der the misapprehension that sportsmanship made it, neces
The concert of Madame Matzenauer tomorrow night is a
treat which Oregon students cannot well afford to miss. Be
there if you can and help to bring many other such figures to
the Oregon campus.

Editor of the Emerald:
What’s the grand idea of the little edi
torial in yesterday morning’s Emerald
which says: “Willumette comes for two
games this week-end. The Bearcats are
good sportsmen, ami so are Oregon men.
Let's go out to beat the visitors.”
During the past basketball season,
most of us appreciated the attitude of
the Emerald towards sportsmanship in
basketball games. Most of us intend to
have tliu same attitude during tin1 com
ing baseball season. But does the es
teemed writer of the editorialette wish
the Oregon bleachers to be a puict rah
rah section of cady-like demeanor? Does
he wish us to applaud bone-head plays of
the opposing team? Does he wish us to
give a cheer for his limps when a hall is
Let’s get you straight. Are we to be
permitted to uncork our voices at a base
ball game only when called upon, or will
we be allowed to watch the game and en
joy it as any baseball fan would like to?

To the Editor:
Spring lias come
Winter has went
What a gob of coin on Easter hats
Poor oid pa has spent.
The early spring hanging gardens are
with us once again. We drab male no
entities may now see more kinds of fruits,
vegetables, and flowers than Burbank and
vthe seed catalogues together are able to
fabricate, by watching the main avenues
of promenade and observing the little
gardens go floating by, five feet or more
above the ground. After viewing some
of these floral and faunal exhibits we are
led to echo the words of that famous ex
perimenter who first ate a green apple.
In the midst of his suffering he turned
to little Eva and said with a sad, sad
smile: “Aint nature wonderful!” Yes.
Adam old scout, quite wonderful, but its
creations are not to be classed with Eas
ter bonnets. Not at all.
. After a more or less careful observa
tion I have come to the conclusion that
there arc only two vegetables not repre
sented o^ the campus collection of bon
nets—watermelons and squash. And if
tlie (Merry Widow brim were in fashion
I firmly believe that even those snlu
,brious and succulent vegetables would
find a place on it. Oh tempora, oh
mores, oh gosh!
There be bonnets and bonnets. Rome
are the saucy little things with the twit
tering on the front — oh, the birds
aren’t actually t^ierc, you understand; I
speak in a paragorical sense. They give
that effect. And woe to the poor bird,
with wings or without, who is decoyed by
this flighty atmosphere. Likewise we
have the bonnet with a wing spread about
as large as that of a Caproni fifty pas
senger aeroplane. With the addition of
an Evinrnde motor and a small portable
propeller (to be carried in vanity box)
the nice youug thing who possesses this
sort of bonnet would be able to fly (in
this world.) Ostensibly the largo brim is
to keep out the sun. But it somehow
works out that, in order that our haughty
beauty' may not be concealed boneatli her
liat, she lifts her eyes to the skies — and
the sun gently burnishes her nose a radi
ant carrot red. and then she has to chalk
it with more than the usual industry for
the next week or so until it resumes its
natural color, providing she allows her
nose to flourish in its natural shade—
which is improbable. Likewise we have
our dear friend the sailor hat, bringing
to our memory those magnificent lines
from Shakespeare (or is it Milton?):
Little hunks of ribbon,
Little gobs of glue,
Make last year’s sailor
Look brand new.
These chic chapeaux certainly look
easy on our campus belles as they go
strolling down the street, with some sort
of poodle, dachshund, Mexican tamale
hound, or Siberian sofa setter trailing
along behind; not to mention the most
faithful canine of all. tlie nice two-footed
doggie who parks himself on the front
porch swing of the Sisterhood and ecsta
tically (also metaphorically) wags his
tail when his vision comes out to lead
him around the block for exercise? These
bo the faithful creatures. They even
have the Airedale beat for constancy and
fidelity. And since they will follow with
out bein led by a chain and will hang
around without having to be provided

Since there are but four practice hours
left next week, Miss Evans urges that all
houses wishing to enter the doughnut

basketball will count as practice hours,
she said. *
