That The Spirit May Carry On
Oregon has long been known throughout the world as a University
of true traditions,—instituted years ago and coming down through
the years to the present age with the same loyal sentiment and pride
that caused them to be created. Yet, only yesterday a negative act
by the Student Council might have wiped out forever the tradition
of the campus luncheon, an integral part of Junior Week-end, and
by so doing, established a precedent which might easily have been
the means of this University’s losing its spirit of democracy by the
gradual elimination of these traditions which have created the envi
able Oregon Spirit,—a love of one’s own alma mater which other in
stitutions have sought unsuccessfully to imitate.
Dangerous precedents must not be established here which will al
low traditions to be peremptorily abandoned at the will of any organ
ized movement which has had its beginning not in the expressed senti
ment of the campus but in a few individuals. And it must not be nec
essary for the Student Council to be held responsible without sound
ing out the sentiment of alumni and faculty members who have been
instrumental in building the Oregon Spirit about its sacred tradi
tions, to decide at what point one tradition may be left out and an
other taken up.
Oregon must have a tradition committee with its proper represen
tation which will foster and preserve the cornerstones of the spirit
of this University. And proper representation means an equal voice
by alumni and faculty members to whom the traditions are a cher
ished recollection of dear old days,—a voice from out of the past
which fans again to brightness the fast fading embers of the fire which
made Oregon Spirit conquer on the gridiron in days of old.
Oregon is a growing institution and its growth is gratifying in
deed, but in no instance must increased enrollment be cited as an ex
cuse for the abolishment of the very essence of Oregon’s democracy.
Others have marvelled at the Oregon Spirit, and it must be kept such
that they will continue to marvel. Love of alma mater and the fight
ing spirit which has characterized this University alone must nol
succumb to the impersonal sentiment which typifies the larger in
stitutions. Oregon traditions must be maintained in the face of tin
rapid growth of enrollment, but where after a maximum of consid
oration and investigation a tradition is not thought expedient thei
it must be abolished only by a traditions committe in which all con
cerned have a voice,—and even then it would bring regrets.
The Means to An End
The petition being circulated among the students to urge the early |
erection of new tennis courts is significant. Not only does it mean :
that these needed facilities for the racquet-wielders will be brought
rather forcibly to the attention of the administration, but it will
likewise serve to bring to the attention of those who are in authority j o
the imperative need for athletic facilities in general here. It may L
: g;
not always be expedient to resort to the petition method to secure the a
wishes of the students, but where all other efforts have failed to
bring forth any material results then the petition is sometimes the In
means to an end. And in this ease may it be the end of the present
regime of insufficient athletic equipment for those who desire to
participate in the sports program which will mean physical training
for every man and woman in the University.
And what “tommy-rot” is thisT we are asked, that attempts to
keep alive a tradition in which every student says “hello” to every '{
other student on the campus in passing. Righteous indignation has V
choked more than one well-intentioned student into silence forever, ^
after he has passed the falsely-assumed “high browish” individual '
and his greeting has been left suspended in the air,—unanswered.
What a convenience the good old alphabet sometimes is. Just at s
present the political reporter for The Emerald uses the ancient and j
bewhiskered adage, “alphabetical order” when he moves one caiuli i
date ahead of the other in his news article,—and thereby saves his ]
neck. (

Sanction Given Project by

A booth will be erected on the cam
pus Friday to receive contributions of
students to the Salvation Army drive
which was begun Monday, and will be
carried on until Saturday. The booth
has received the sanction of the com
mittee of student drives, of which
1 Raymond Lawrence is chairman, but
there will be no personal solicitation.
It is planned to have a speaker at
the assembly today present the work of
tlio organization, and the booth will be
erected the following day.
To raise $4000 is the aim of the drive,
for tlie purpose of carrying on the
maintenance work of the organization
for the coming year. Their work in
cludes relief work among the poor and
genoral social service. During the war
i their activity overseas will be remem
bered. However, this budget will be
used for work in Eugene and Dane
,1 county only.
The city has been divided into dis
tricts for the campaign, which is under
i the managership of E. L. Gravos. The
Elks, who have pledged to raise $2400
' \ of the amount, will canvass the busi
[ I ness district. The Salvation Army is
making the house-to-house canvass of
■ the residence district. DTp to last night
a statement had not yet been made of
the amount raised, as the drive is just
getting well started.

If your burning ambition is to excel as an all

your evenings better. Such persistence will win

the poet says,
“The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they while their companions slept
Were toiling upward in the night.’’

Not that you need swing to the other extreme
as a “grind” or a hermit. Let’s concede it is all
right to minor in sociabilities—but certainly it is
only common sense to major in the math and

Remember this—the harder you work right
now in getting a grip on fundamentals, the easier
things will come to you when you must solve
still bigger problems. And if you take it easy

It’s up to you. While you’ve got the chance,
