Let’s Decide on the Bonfire
Some time ago The Emerald advocated limiting the time for
the construction of the annual freshman bonfire. The plan did not
favor restricting the size to hard and fast dimensions, and provided
for a better and more efficient organization. Homecoming is less
than three weeks away and some definite plan of action must be
decided upon. Some; have suggested that a holiday for the freshmen
Thursday afternoon and Friday might be a time saver in the long
run. Other suggestions have been made.
The University does not want a two-by-four bonfire which will
disappoint the returning alumni and visitors. We must have a fire
which will reflect the true spirit of the University and help to make
Homecoming the best ever. We cannot afford to lose interest in the
building of the great pyre which will light the return of the “Old
Grads.” The limit we propose is none other than that set by good
Competition between classes to the make the fire the “biggest
ever” cannot go on forever. • Each succeeding fire cannot be larger
than the last. The limit has been reached. Too much sacrifice is
involved. What- is needed is a drastic time limitation and the adop
tion of a plan for thorough organization. With this we shall have a
bonfire which will be big enough and still not interfere to a great
extent with University work and other activities.
All-night work for days and weeks in advance cannot be coun
tenanced. Wo must see to it that the first year men do not allow work
on the bonfire to cause them to make failures in their first term here.
It is even asking too much to have them neglect their studies for one
week. And the whole problem is caused by the fact that a few men
do most of the work, and others are never called upon.
The problem was presented to the students more than a week
ago and now the time for definite action has come. The right com
mittees must be appointed and the right men placed in charge. The
Emerald urges that action be taken at once to agree on a general plan
in order that the organize!ion may get under way. Committees should
see that all sources of material are listed before the class as a whole
starts to work. The two Saturdays between now and Homecoming
should lx' used to get ready. The main thing is to get every man
. in the class to do his share. 'The brunt should not fall on the freshmen
in the organizations just because they are the most easily reached.
Something should be done immediately to limit the amount of
time, without eliminating class spirit. We want a good bonfire, and
if the proper steps are taken we can have one without sacrificing so
much time and effort as we have in the past.
On to Portland!
The. game with Idaho in Portland Saturday will be one of the
hardest of the season. The dope is about even and if the varsity is
to come (mt on the long end of tin' score it will be because the entire
student body moves to Portland and yells for the team. Yell King
Rosebraugh wants SOU rooters in the rally and in the reserved section.
Why not double that Humbert There are more than 2000 students reg
istered in the University.
back of rooters kept us from winning last year, says Rosebraugh.
If the special train is chartered, let’s move down “on masse” and
make the return trip a celebration. If the special fails there are
plenty id’ ears and motorcycles which can be chartered, and the rate
on the railroad is low. Plan now to make the trip.

NEW LABEL FOR GYM WORK
“Corrective” Becomes “Individual” in
Girls’ P. E. Department
“Individual Gymnastics” is the now
I name given the work formerly listed as
“Corrective Gym.” The girls seemed
indifferent to corrective work, said Miss
i homson, in charge of special gym
classes for girls who are unable to take
1 the regular courses in physical educa
tion. Individual work and corrective
(exercises will secure quicker results
than group work, said Miss Thomson.
In group work, the girl is apt to allow
herself to perform her exercises in a
(mechanical manner, with little regard
i'for the physical benefits.
Physical exams are not completed as
(yet. and only 160 girls have been as
signed to individual work. Every term
■(between 160 and 200 girls are enrolled
in these classes. Miss Emma Jane Gar
bade is assisting Miss Thomson in this
department of physical education.
PERUVIAN WILL SPEAK

NEW COMPLAINT NOTICED
The University health service reports
a developing complication in the pre
sent epidemic of colds and coughs. A
great number of the patients are suf
fering from abdominal pains and as far
! as it can be determined it is a form of
dysentery. This complaint has also
been reported as a common one at O.
V. 0. It in no way resembles flu and
is separate and distinct from the colds.
In some of the houses of residence all
the members are suffering with it. It
is believed to be caused by unclean
food of some nature, as yet undiscov
The infirmary dismissed one patient
today and admitted one, making a total
of four under care.

LINDSAY IS GREAT NEW
Vagabond Writer First Stormed
Literary World by “Congo”
By PROF. JULIA BURGESS
Vachel Lindsay is the breeziest of all
our new American poets. He will blow
across our campus and our preeoncep
tions of poetry with a tonic freshness of
idea and of personality and will leave
us invigorated with a new enthusiasm
and a new sense of beauty in American
life. He is a prophet of the true Am
or;, anism—the Americanism of big
hearttfd brotherly love and comradesnip.
Ilis own heart is big enough to take!
in every' ody, *and he made friends all
along the way by his lovable simplicity
of spirit when he tramped as a stroll
ing minstrel throngh the southern and
western states -without a penny in his
pocket, begging his way and preaching
the “gospel of beauty.” His “Handy
Guide for Beggars” is one of the most
charming volumes ever issued from
Lindsay is a minstrel, a reviewer of
the art of spoken verse. It -was at a
banquet given in Chicago by the staff
of the new magazine “Poetry,” that
Lindsay first stormed the literary world
by the recitation of his wonderful
“Congo.” And there William Butler
Yeats, the chief singer of the Irish
minstrelsy, acclaimed him the great new
voice in American minstrelsy.
“The higher vaudeville”—moderniz
ing his term—Lindsay calls his new art,
which mingles chant and song and act
ing. ne sings of the folk and of the
folks—of negro, Salvation armist, Chi-1
nese laundrvman; of fireman and speed
ing autoist; of the Queen of Sheba and
Lindsay is athletic as well as esthetic.
He does not tramp only on level ground,
but when he finds mountains in his path
he treats them like level ground. Ste
phen Graham gives an exciting account
of his journey with Vachel Lindsay
through Glacier park. Like Peter the
Great they measured distances only in
straight lines; they scorned the winding
trails. Up mountains, down canyons,
across rivers they went, heedless of the
fact that thus they slept in a gully es
pecially designed to become in an in
stant a rock avalanche or that bitter
'cold might find them, thinly clad, on
the windy knife edge of Red Eagle
The article expresses the belief that
there is a special providence that
watches over poets, and wre hope that
this special providence will watch over
Vachel Lindsay this week and bring
him safe to Eugene on the night of
