A Step Forward
. 11 -1 Jgg ,!L.*q
Student body and Sophomore officials did a constructive act
when they changed the Freshman parade from a wild meanipgless
orgy of spatting and horseplay into an event during which the young
sters of ’27 actually learned something of Oregon and its traditions.
To eliminate the horseplay entirely would have been to abolish a
cherished tradition. The march through the streets, tue painting of
the ‘ 0 ’ and even the wetting down is a part of underclass life that no
freshman would want to miss
We feel that, the action of those in charge in tempering the pro
ceedings down and ending the affair with the green-cap ceremony
will do more to start the new class right as Oregon students than any
thing else which could have been done at this time.
The idea was evolved at a series of conferences, wherein the par
ade was carefully planned by minds who had the best interests of
Oregon at heart. It is a step forward.
Playing the Game
Several times each year Bill Hayward, Shy Huntington or some
other member of the University coaching staff talks to the student
body on the subject of “stickers.” By a sticker, the coaches mean a
man who will go out for an athletic team and no matter what his
chances will stay by the guns. Whether he ever makes a position on
the team or not, his work is a factor in building up those who do.
Without competition for his first string men, no coach can put a win
ner on the field.
Oregon has a number of such stickers. There should be many
more. The man we regard as outstanding in this regard happens to
have been a classmate of ours since high school days. We remember
how he then frequently fought for our little school at times when he
could scarcely walk because of injuries. Then he came to the Uni
versity. There was the usual series of hard workouts in the mud and
rain. Injuries came to endanger his all too slight chances to make
even the freshman squad. He has continued the same gritty fight all
through his University career that he started years ago.
Last Saturday he played part of the game against Willamette and
his showing was creditable. He may or he may not make the varsity
this year. We hope that what seems a good chance for him to do so
will materialize. But whether he does or doesn’t, he will always have
the satisfaction of knowing that he gave all he had to Oregon, not
because of the honor he might gain, but because he loved her. He
will also leave the campus with the sincere admiration of all who
know his story. That man is Ed Kirtley—sticker. “May his tribe
increase. ’ ’
Saturday night will be open house. This annual event is intended
to give an opportunity for students to know one another better. Re
gardless of how many names are actually remembered after the melee
of handshaking, the man or the woman who gets into the spirit of
the occasion will have a better idea of who’s who on the campus.
Let’s put down the usual growlers and those who apparently enjoy
affecting boredom and have a good time together.

But for some reason the red hats
didn’t go in the store, but said some
magic words, and lo and behold, out
of the air came a lot of bags full of
something, which our little guests
found to be wet water and just that.
Some of our nephews decided that
they would show their gratitude toward
us by giving a little show for our
benefit. It included a little shadow
boxing, a little song by a guest, a
dance that smacked of those days far
back in Hawaii, when the grass skirt
was all the rage and the ukelele
whined in the moonlight. The new
comers exhibited their appreciation of
the grandest dean in the world by giv

mittee and guests filed through town
to the campus, with the guests shouting
about the university and chanting a
little ditty about the neighbors.
They showed their affection for
the seal and the senior bench by
implanting luscious kisses thereon.
The red hats showed the guests how
they loved, them by gracious raps of
the paddles. Those red-hatted scamps
are sure loving screatures.

Only one sad incident marred the
lovely sight seeing trip and that was
when someone discovered a guest

One nice thing about the parade was
