The Four Year Man
The four year student is one of the problems of University life.
There are all too many who start and never reach the finish line.
They are the ones who have made the mistake. Great are the temp
tations to turn one’s back on the problems and discouragements
which accompany a career in college. Weary grows the way of in
tellectual attainment. But he who finally survives the vicissitudes
of this life and finds his way to that magnificient goal, graduation,
satisfies not only himself, but adds one more iota of prestige to the
alma mater which has schooled him.
Those who have witnessed most grief resulting from students
dropping out of college are the living organizations. Their strength
is weakened by the failure of the old members to return. It is said
that little service or aid is given the organization by the individual
until he has attained junior status. The organization spends the
first two years training the neophyte. Return from this generous
service is given by the person as an upperclassman. One or two
years spent in moulding and shaping a personality that is only to
quit his ambitions at the end of this time may be deemed totally
The University being in a peculiar position has difficulty itself
in retaining the interest of indifferent scholars. It is within the
power of the organization to plant the seed of the “four year idea”
in the virgin minds of the incoming classes. More urgency from the
organization to the individual; daily hammering of the idea into the
minds of these new students in our midst, should be an effective
process of enlightenment to the younger among us.
So hammer away, you seniors. Let your final endowment to the
alma mater be the revelations made by you to the freshmen and soph
omores. Show them how you have struggled, suffered, and endured
hardships, and yet how happy you are now to call yourself a four
“Unite to Fight for Oregon”
Of all events in the school year, that of the graduate’s return is
not excelled in importance. As the welfare of an educational insti
tution such as ours is measured by the integrity of the student body
organization coupled with the efficiency of the scholastic curricula,
so is it dependent upon the loyalty and support of those who have
been graduated from its halls.
Homecoming is less than three weeks distant. The directorate
which has in hand the success or failure of the arrangements gives
assurance that the plans are all in order and that the program will
be successful provided it has the last increment of support from the
A significant slogan has been selected for this year’s celebration.
“Unite to Fight for Oregon” means that each and every Oregon
student and Oregon booster must doff his hat to the colors and pledge
undivided support to the success of November 23 and 24.
Come, let’s unite; and what’s more, let’s fight. We’ll show the
grads we are unchanged; we are the same Oregon they knew. We
are larger than ever. But our numbers have not weakened our
Let’s all work now for the greatest Homecoming. Each man and
woman playing his part can serve to perfect the plans. Individual
cooperation and work—these above all, will make for greatest suc
RIFLE SHOOTING PROVES
POPULAR WITH WOMEN
Captain Murry Says That Only Few
Who Signed for Sport Have Drop
ped Out. Men Lack Interest
Interest in donut rifle shooting
among the girls is very good, according
to R. O. T. C. officials. The girls who
have signed for practice have been show
ing up fairly regularly and only a few,
so far, have dropped out of the run
ning. The good weather yesterday after
noon attracted several who should have
been at practice, but when the rainy
weather sets in they will probably make
up for lost time.
The men are not showing the interest
they should show, many of them taking
the attitude that they are doing the
school a favor by turning out. They are
tiot. The donut rifle competition is
for their own pleasure and good.
Captain Murray says that the general
lack of interest in the shooting is due to
the fact that it is not a recognized sport
on the campus. Many colleges and uni
versities over the country give the sport
minor standing, placing it on a par with
soccer, swimming, and the like. He be
lieves that if the University wold give
rifle work recognition there would be
much more interest taken in it.
