Oregon’s Hands Are Clean
Slurring signs referring to Oregon Agricultural College as a
1 ‘ cow college ’ ’ were painted on the campus of the Corvallis institu
tion Hallowe’en night. Naturally, 0. A. C. suspected its greatest
athletic rival, Oregon, and Percy Locey, president of the Aggie stu
dent body, asked our president, Claude Robinson for an explanation.
A frank disavowal of the whole affair and regrets that the de
predations Occurred were sent to the wrathy students of the neigh
boring college, and a prompt investigation here revealed that there
was no evidence that Oregon students had committed the act.
The old days of petty fighting with paint and slurs are gone.
• When the “Iron Woman” incident was closed, November 1,1919, bad
blood between the two great Oregon institutions of learning was
removed. A healthy spirit of athletic competition has taken its place
and is to be encouraged.
The person or group of persons who smeared the paint on u. A.
buildings was no better than the ordinary lawbreaker, and if caught
he should be treated as such. This sentiment, expressed by President
Robinson in his message to- the O. A. C. Barometer, is supported by
the Emerald and the student body as a whole.
When Homecoming and its classic struggle with the Orange and
Black occurs the usual grim determination to wm will be evident,
but there will be no petty revilements or childish cap-stealing.
Both the University and the College have outgrown the days when
the rah-rah boys paraded the virtues of their institutions amid gibes
for the competitor. The competition on the gridiron and in the root
ing sections must be the order of the whole affair. ^
When the word of the nocturnal paint-splashing was passed around
on the Oregon campus there was none of the celebration that such an
announcement might have caused a few years ago.
Oregon promised in 1917, and renewed the pledge in 1919, that
property rights would be respected. 0. A. C. did likewise. Since
that time there has been little or no hint of violation. The student
body president’s answer to Mr. Locey was fitting and we are glad
he was able to make it with a clear conscience. Oregon’s word is as
good as its bond, which explains the concern evinced on the campus
when the finger of suspicion was pointed our way.
A virile University spirit is necessary. Outrooting and outplaying
the Aggies is our job, but disfiguring their campus is not in our
catalogue of activities.
We are glad that Oregon’s hands are clean.
Once again Oregon’s allegiance to its mother state has been
voiced. The pledge day ceremony of yesterday was a fitting one, and
the part which the Governor and Judge Hamilton played was im
pressive. The student body is always glad to see and hear the rep
resentatives of our Board of Regents and of our great commonwealth.
