Oregon Needs the Building, But—
The proposed plan for the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. to con
struct a building on the campus to be used to house student activities
would do very nicely if the building were to be donated to the as
sociated students. Oregon needs such a building, the immense amount
of work which is involved in student self-government which is in
creased from year to year with the growth of the institution will soon
make it imperative that some accommodations be provided for the
student administrative offices.
However, we are not unmindful of the competition between
Knights of Columbus organizations, the Y. M. C. A., and other re
ligious clubs and societies and the war experience of these has
many times raised the question as to the proper place of such com
If the proposed building by the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A.
is to mean the beginning of competitive building or giving out of
favors, then the campus is no place for it. The associated students
need a student union building, but such a building will not be satis
factory if the use of it means the obligation to any religious organi
zation. If any or all of these organizations wish to erect a building
and donate it to the students, that is a different matter, and it
would be accepted with thanks.
But if we are to have any religious competition among clubs and
societies the building had best wait until the associated students
can build it themselves by popular subscription or tax.
Oregon’s Fighting Chance
The fact that Oregon has a chance to win the dual track meel
with the University of Washington here Saturday, is evidence alone
of the splendid work which the members of the track squad have beer
doing. Their work began many weeks ago and has continued with
monotonous regularity ever since. Hours of grilling strain which
these men have put in have apparently fulfilled their purpose, and
Oregon is in first-class condition to contest with this ancient rival
from the north.
It will not be necessary to stress the point of bringing out the stu
dents to cheer the members of the team on to greater efforts Sat

all the thrills of any big intercollegiate competition. The opportunity
of defeating the University of Washington is enough in itself to
provide the incentive, and intense interest and excitement will hinge
about every event on the program.
learn work is just as essential in a track team as it is in every
other team, yet there is greater opportunity for individual effort.
The fighting spirit of tin! individual members of a track team is sec

The campus was not so successful as Portland in having an earth
quake Monday. But neither has the campus any recording instru
ments which might determine whether the temblor was a real quake
or a distant explosion caused by some farmer blasting out stumps
with an extra heavy charge of dynamite. Now that the earthquake
has at last ventured from its favorite haunt in the land of the “native
sons, this University should provide a seismograph which will sup
ply an accurate record of earth shocks.

How do they get that way?
SK the man with the big income his ‘'secret of
XX success," and you will generally find that it is
some copy-book maxim known to everybody.
‘‘lie sure you are right, then go ahead.”
“If anything is in your way, go over it.”
“Learn something about everything and every
thing about something.”
Trite! Anybody could give you as good advice.
It simply means that success is not a problem of
discovering some obscure short-cut. The path is
plain enough, but only alertness, energy and self
discipline will push you along it.
All this holds a special force for you because
what you do at college will influence what you do
afterwards. If you start right, the chances are you
will finish light.
