What Oregon Spirit Means
With the two hardest games of the season ahead, the varsity
and the student body are determined to demonstratenvhat “Oregon
•Spirit” means. At Corvallis tomorrow and at Seattle Thanksgiving
day the team will fight hard and fight clean. And the campus is
united in the desire to prove that Oregon fights to win. But “Oregon
Spirit” means more than winning the game; it means playing the
game and assuming a sportsman’s attitude.
This year’s Lemon-Yellow is no cellar champion and can be
classed with the leaders of the conference. Many Oregon students
are already planning to go to Seattle to see the game on Turkey
Day. Those who have followed the grid scores realize that when the
teams representing the universities of the sister states meet, “Greek
will meet Greek.” Coach Bagshaw’s men have met defeat only at the
hands of California, and the Lemon-Yellow has yet to be downed by
a conference eleven. All indications are that it will be a real contest.
Oregon students must remember that “Oregon Spirit means
courtesy to rivals as well as support of the team. They must bear in
mind that anything which hurts the institution in any way is not to
be tolerated. The student body must be unrelenting in its prosecution
of individuals who digress from the standards of good sportsman
ship in their attitude toward a rival institution. We must remember
that we are university men and women and that “Oregon Spirit
is as much a spirit of fair play as it. is of victory.
The varsity is fighting as it has never fought before. The students
are solid in their support. There will he two thousand Oregon rooters
at Corvallis tomorrow afternoon and a good representation at Seattle
Let's demonstrate that “Oregon Spirit” means victory—and it
also means good sportsmanship.

COMM UNICA TIONS
ON OUR MUSIC
To tlio Editor:
Yes, we went to the concert and it
cost us $2.25 per each. (For even a
freshman's time is worth at least a
dollar an hour supposedly preparing for
something better in life.) And what
did we hear? A fair expurgated vaude
ville show. Also it is the first, much
looked-forward-to University of Oregon
A. S. U. O. concert.
The chief features, including the
chief encore, were the celebrated boon
songs They are probably American
as most things belong to America. But
thev are as representative of modern
1 America as they are of the expatriated
Africans who first spent their time ot
day indulging in these dignified “spirit
uals” to amuse their imbecile selves.
| Such songs have a traditional place
on every vocal concert program, but
when they become a steady diet we
j are apt to get chronic indigestion. Cer
j tainly such a diet is an insult to the
intelligence of any university audience
and the University of Oregon is as good
as some others.
Turning to the rest of the program,
the operatic number was not sung with
a maximum amount of enthusiasm and
feeling. Furthermore the writer glor
ifies his own egoism by feeling that
there are several baritone arias in the
field of grand opera that would have
been perhaps more acceptable.
Why can't some capable artist give
us a program that is largely operatic?
There is a wealth of feeling and un
icrstanding •> (he mam tin 1 grand ■ ;
eras. We need inspiration and a stir
ring up of our emotions for the life
that we lead here is deadening in its
routine prosaicness. We do not need
to ask if it will take when we remem
ber the crowded auditorium last winter
when the Chicago Opera company sang
to an audience that could not get en
ough music. We must have music that
will scud us away n freshed and stim
ulated to do our little bit of creative
work, not saddened and morose. When,
if ever, we can have such a concert
let not the German opera be omitted.
Also in the rich vocal literature not
operatic there are other s, ngs that
could be used to make an acceptable
program. A program could be limited
to a country and give us the best re
presentative music that that country
has produced. This is not a wild spec
ulative suggestion as the writer re
members a year's organ concerts when
each month's recital was devoted to
«ue country. The recitals were given
at a place that was not readily access
ible yet the people came each time and
all remember the pleasure and culture
of those evenings.
lapst but not least we should have
one artist a term or even one artist a
year and get a real artist who will
, iime and give us his art. Better thirty
minutes of Rachmaninoff that will give
us something above the routine and
go away with the feeling that we are
hotter for the time spent hearing him
than twelve hours of the same as the
last program. No artist needs lower
himself and his art to meet our men
tality—we are not fools and children.
We must have the best and not a con
descending mediocrity. Only the best
will satisfy Oregon Spirit and promote
Oregon Fight. Take heed, you who are
spending our money; we must have bet
ter concerts in the future.
STUDENTS’ WORK PRAISED
To the Editor:
Of Oregon hospitality and Oregon
welcome there has never been ques
tion. But perhaps Oregon’s gift for
skillful organization has not been bet
ter shown than during Homecoming last
It seems to us who write that the!
work of Leith Abbott, chairman of the
Homecoming committee, should have
special mention whenever Homecoming j
is praised. Though all of Mr. Abbott's]
plans did not materialize as they were
laid, his last minute changes were a
proof of his care, thoughtfulness and
To Mr. Abbott's directorate, all nf
whom deserve individual mention, and
to his committee at large we are
grateful that the tradition of Oregon
hospitality was but augmented during
the week-end. The splendid service;
of the Oregon Knights brought forth I
much well deserved praise. Nor did
the wise and dignified leadership of
John MacGregor, president of the As
sociated students, escape the com
mendation of alumni and guests.
To the studnt body as a whole we
feel is due a large gratitude for the
firmness with which they upheld the
whole Homecoming movement. The
student body has underwritten Oregon

STRANGER PRAISES HELLO
j To the Editor:
Give heed, I pray, to one who was a
stranger within your gates. I left the
busy metropolis of our state to visit
your noble institution during its home
coming celebration. I came not as an
alumnus, an old student, or even a
■ friend. 1 was a stranger.
Today all is different. I am not an |
alien or a foreigner. I have a stake 1
in your school, an interest in its ae- I
tivities. What brought about this |
change in me! Was it the sight of your |
buildings, the fight of your team, the 1
display of your enthusiasm and |
"pep?" No, it was the wouderful 1
school spirit that was manifested in I
the friendly "hello." This simple, 1
homely expression was the instrument I
that changed my attitude. *
l sincerely hope that this custom
will ever prevail in your university
life. If it does, you are certain to
make more friends out of strangers
than by any formal speech of adoption.
