In the Making,—Or Made ?
Habits formed in college are not so easily shaken off in after life
as one might always believe. There are a lot of these habits, some of
them good, others bad. In the latter classification comes the habit
of “getting by.” In its more common use on the college campus it
is a prevalent phraseology used in discussing studies. \ ou hear it
on every side, in about this manner: “How are you getting along in
your work?”—and the answer, “Oh, I am getting by.”
A poor habit to get into, and yet one which most of us sink into
at times. “Getting by” is not sufficient. Men and women in col
lege possess ambition, energy and a desire to get the utmost out of
life,—these are the characteristic tendencies. If we don’t possess
these, then much of the blame can be laid to our attitude of letting
life take its course and “getting by.”
That’s the attitude which leaves the initiative to the other fellow.
That leaves the other fellow to get out and strive to see the right thing,
to better his condition and the condition of the university,—his uni
versity. Of course, we can let the other fellow take the initiative,
we can let the other fellow even take all the blame if things don’t
go just right—and we can still “get by.”
The university student of today is not the university student of a
decade ago. President NeilHon of Smith College said that about
the girls in his institution, but it is not confined to the girls. As
students we pride ourselves upon being possessed of the qualifica
tions to think out our own problems and our own remedies for the
evils we meet in our own particular lines ot activities as well as in
what concerns our entire campus. Yet we do not assert ourselves;
no, it, is far easier to let the other fellow assert himself and we are
content with “getting by.”
As liberal minded students of a university, can there be any gain
in an attitude of “getting by”--whether it be in our studies or in
the problems which confront us in our daily life?
Ct't us repeat again the words of Alfred Zitnmern: “A University
is not a glorified high school. It is not meant for boys and girls
who are still in the text-book stage and unable to study without spoon
feeding and direction. It is intended for students who, however
vague and chaotic their ideas as to their future occupation, have
some independent intellectual life of their own, who value ideas and
the contact of mind with mind, and who come to a seat of learning,
not simply to scramble through some breadwinning test, but, whether
consciously or not, to satisfy the needs of their growing spirit.”
At Washington State College the associated students own and
operate their own motion picture theatre to the mutual benefit ot the
students and their treasury. First-rim pictures are shown, and they
keep their money at home. Isn’t such a thing possible here?
BOOKS GIVEN UNIVERSITY
Twenty-five Volumes Presented by Mr.
and Mrs. D. W. Briggs
A gift of 25 volumes, covering the
fields of literature and history, has

made the offer of the books.

News of the Early Days of Univer

Weekly of Teh. 11, 1901.
A year ago today, the OREGON
WEEKLY began its humble career.
Those pessimistic minds that shouted
scorn and ridicule at us a year ago, have
seen us grow and prosper. We have had
our ups and downs, but our ship has
braved the storm and we continue to
live. OREGON WEEKLY has come to
stay, and, unless come unkind fate over
takes us, we shall live to enjoy a good
TT. O. and O. A. C. have a common aim,
the upbuilding and strengthening of their
respective institutions. The State Uni
versity stands for a classical education,
the agriculture college for the scientific
and industrial. Let each institution, for
the sake of the state and the rising
generation, be made the best of its kind,
let a spirit of friendship, rather than
rivalry and rancour, characterize their
relations and a spirit of petty prejudice
and peevishness should be conspicuous by

We nope that the State Oratorical As
sociation will decide to hold its next con
test at Eugene. All previous student
gatherings in this city have been most
successful and we believe th:s is the best
place for the contest in 1902. Villard
Hall is the best and largest auditorium
in the state and the railroad and hotel
accomodations of our city are of the best.
THE RADIEU’ WAVE, the fortnight
ly publication of the students of the
University of Washington, is a neat pa
per typographically, but it strikes us
that the 1'. W. offers a field for some
thing more like a newspaper that could
gi\e fuller and fresher accounts of the
university happenings. A university with
500 students ought to be able to get out
a good weekly.

WRESTLERS WILL REPEAT
0. A. C. BOUTS NEXT WEEK
Frosh and Rook Squads to Get
Action on Program
The Varsity wrestlers who suffered
a setback from the O. A. C. grapplers
here last week end are to have a chance
to redeem themselves some time iv the
near future, according to Gerald Barnes,
The meeting will probably take
place next Monday or Tuesday if fac
ulty consent is given. A new feature
of the contest is bouts between
the freshmen squads of the two schools.
This is distinctly a new thing, and is
to be put on by Mr. Barnes and Coach
Rutherford of O. A. C. to help stimu
late interest in the wrestling game be
tween the two institutions.
Mr. Barnes deplored the fact that so
little interest is shown by the men of
the school in wrestling, and urged that
more come out, as the winner of an
event from O. A. C. is now awarded a
letter, and this fact alone should war
rant a much larger turnout. Mr. Barnes
cited the example of the heavyweight
match in the meet last week in which
Bradway for Oregon wrestled an O. A.
C. man, who was at least 30 pounds
heavier, and looked twice as large as
his Lemon-Yellow opponent. The O. A.
U. man won the match on two rails in
both of which he picked Bradway up
bodily in his arms and held him there
for several seconds before he could de
cide what part of the mat to flop him
on. Bradway, he said, is to be com
plimented for the spirit he showed in
coming back at the big boy, although
he looked like a pygmy in comparison
to the bulk of his opponent.
Bradway has been suffering from a
bad ear all season, says Mr. Barnes,
and is not going to wrestle in the fu
ture. McKeown will probably take care
of that event. There will be five
events in the meet besides the heavy
weight match. The men showing up
in the different classes, according to
Mr. Barnes, are Nygren, light heavy
weight; Winnard, middleweight; Kirt
ly, welterweight; Whitcomb, light
weight; and Wegner, featherweight.
Wegner was the only man that scored
a win in the meet against the Aggies,
but all of the events were hotly con
tested and the meet was not as oVe
sided as the score indicated. Kirtly put
on an especially scrappy bout with his
opponent, who is a two-year letter man
in the sport at O. A. C., and when it
is taken into consideration that he had
had the grip only two days before, it
can well be predicated that the next
meeting of the two will come out in a
different manner. Kirtly, said Mr.
Barnes, is a very aggressive type of
wrestler. He has been showing up
well all season, and with the experi
ence ho now has, should be a valuable
man in the future.
The freshmen who are flipping their
IK there is one blessing
that belongs in the life
of everyone it is flow
ers. They are cheerful,
companionable and in
expensive. We should
pause from time to time
in our practical haste
to let some of the
poetry and perfume of
beautiful blossoms seep
into our souls.

opponents the most are Zachary and
Prescott, light heavyweights; Bliss and
Lundburg, middleweights; Vester, wel
terweight; Bobertson and Lee, light
weights; and Sumption, lightweight.
The Frosh-Rook meet is not to be
scored, Mr. Barnes stated, and will be
more of a practice meet than anything
else, the prime purpose being to bring
men out that will try out for Varsity
