Here’s What It Meant, Frosh
TIIE annual Frosh parade, enlivened by slap-sticks and nptnerous
bits of horse-play, introduced little of the serious to the average j
member of the incoming class participating. But to those sopho
mores and upper-classmen who marshalled the “largest class in his
tory’’ in their antics, the parade had a more significant and deeper
When the freshmen hurried as best they could through a wait
ing line near the senior bench, some of them forgot that tradition re
quired that they touch their lips to the unupholstered cement bench.
The Senior bench, to those who have been here before, however, is a
somewhat sacred article of furniture, by tradition made usable only
for seniors. ,
Likewise the freshmen were introduced to the Oregon seal in
front of Villard, but for the most part they were but dimly aware of
the reason for the actions of upperclassmen in causing them to in
spect its makeup. Upperclassmen revere also the Oregon Seal, be
cause tradition has made it a sin to walk upon it.
After their running climb up Skinner s butte to the giant 0 ,
the freshmen gained an idea of what that piece of cement meant.
The “0” is a tradition which freshmen are meant to guard; always
the “0” must be kept yellow, and at times when a different coat of
paint is threatened, it must be guarded by freshmen.
There are other traditions of Oregon which freshmen will soon
learn and in time pass on to other classes. Of their own volition,
Oregon students do not smoke on the campus. A tradition has made
it possible, however, to smoke under the so-called “Nicotine tree,
opposite the library.
There are many class traditions which freshmen must also learn.
Seniors wear sombreros; juniors, corduroys, and freshmen green
• caps. All classes have distinctive sections in the Villard assembly
hall where they always sit.
The most famous tradition’is the Oregon “Hello ’. Always,
everywhere, one Oregon student says “Hello to another. Girls
speak to men, men to girls. It is this tradition which has made Ore
gon famous for its democracy. Freshmen will gradually learn these
traditions until so natural are they that the observance of them will
become a part of the daily life.
ADVERTISING is the meat and drink which allows the Emerald
to greet you every morning in the school year. The Eugene busi
ness men who advertise in the Emerald are entitled to the patron
age of the students. The Emerald stands in a distinctive class in its
circulation, and the business man who is wide awake and realizes
that fact, goes after that class of circulation and is the man who is
entitled to your patronage.

War Veterans In Ten Counties
Served by Old Grads
Ten of the 35 bonus attorneys who
have been appointed for the counties of
the state are University of Oregon
graduates, a comparison of the list of
attorneys with the records of the alumni
secretary reveals. Of the others,
scarcely any two are graduates of the
same school, which gives the university
a large plurality over other institu
tions represented.
Clackamas county is represented by
Philip Hammond of Oregon City, an
ex-member of the class of 1910. Another
former member of this class, Charles i
W. Erskine of Bend, is bonus attorney
for Desehusetts county. A graduate of
a still earlier date who will aid world
war veterans in adjusting their claim*
is Francis V. Galloway of The Dalles,
a graduate with the class of 1907, who
will serve Wasco county.
Garnet L. Green of Astoria ,of the]
class of 1917, is the bonus attorney for
Clatsop county and Wallace Benson, ’14,;
of Reedsport, is the attorney appointed ;
for Douglas county. Jackson county
will be served by Frank F. Farrell of
Medford, ex-’19.
Soldiers and sailors of Marion county
will have as their legal advisor, Allan j
Byron of Salem, ex-’17, and Morrow,
county will have C. L. Sweek of Hepp
ner, at one time a member of the class
of 1911. A university graduate in
1913, Harold J. Warner of Pendleton,
is bonus attorney for Umatilla and
Carl Hendricks of Fossil, a former Ore
gon student, is attorney for Wheeler
