Victory or Not Victory
Crimson is the horizon. Rumbling in the distance are the drums
of battle. The phalanxes are gathering to quell the onrushing host.
Into the valley of doubt marches the “Thundering Thousand.” As
the clarion call rings through the ether, the heart of each one of us
beats more rapidly.
In Portland lurks the foe. When the classrooms pour forth their
volunteers, then will Majordomo Myers marshal his forces, assemble
them in array for combat, and entrain for Multnomah field and the
conflict of the ages. There, away in the distance farther than the eye
can see, the silent sentinels of the Great Stanford wait. Patiently
and wonderingly they watch, mindful of the morrow’s impending
There on foreign sawdust the Cardinal will meet the Lemon-Yel
low. In Portland the alumni have already stirred up feeling and
spirit. Graduates of both institutions have prepared a mighty recep
tion for the teams of both colleges. There will be competition to see
who can effect the largest demonstration. Oregon in this respect
should have the advantage since students by the hundreds are going
to make the trip.
They say there is a jinx to be broken. Oregon has been known
to hold jinxes over other teams, but she knows that no foibles are to
prevent her emerging victorious from a game. Perhaps the team is
weakened. But in any event, week or strong, she will display her
old-time unrivalled fight.
The team as it stands is not overconfident. In fact, if there is
any confidence, it may be called underconfidence. The outcome now
is not to be predicted. The team will scrap and the rooters will yell.
The students and the alumni will boost, and it is up to the great Un
known to do the rest.
The Hello Is Contagious
From its one outstanding tradition, the University of Oregon
is commencing to gain notoriety in the collegiate world. The Daily
Northwestern of Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, con
tains editorial comment on the attempt at a hello week on the North
western campus. The men are not consulted or included in the move
ment as yet, but are expected to join later. The editorial of the North
western is:
“ ‘Hello, hello, hello,’ is the password for all girls on the campus
this week. Speaking to the people who go to school with you is a
small courtesy which should not be too much bother. If this week is
a success it will completely answer the criticisms of snobbishness at
Northwestern. '
“ ‘Hello’ walks are popular features at the Universities of Ore
gon and Maine. Let us go them one better and make this a ‘hello’
campus. ‘
“Three women’s organizations, the Big Sisters, Y. W. C. A., and
Frosh Commission are trying to start ‘hello’ week as a tradition at
Northwestern. The men are not included at present, but many of
them have expressed an opinion that they would like to join the
movement. '
“Whether this week will be a failure or a success is up to you.
The Northwestern errs in designating ours as hello walks. We
have no hello walks or lanes, nor do we have a hello campus. We
have a hello University and hello student body which says “Hello.’’
Northwestern, your plan will succeed only when everybody speaks
not the men or women alone. And each student must Say Hello

Yesterday we happened with enthusi

therefore dare to risk his wrath by
calling your attention to the editorial
that startled us from our complacent

tion to tL_ faculty relative to the
granting of a half-holiday Friday, the
petition circulated about the campus
by the ex-service men was worded in a
manner that did the student council
an injustice. The council’s petition
concerned Friday afternoon, and that
alone. No mention, expressed or im
plied, was made of Armistice day in the
petition or by any member of the stu
dent council.
However, the ex-service men who
drew and circulated the petition con
cerning Armistice day were positively
and directly informed that the student
council’s petition was represented in
the faculty discussion as a compromise
measure; Friday afternoon being
granted as a substitute for, or in place
of, the Armistice holiday on Monday.
We hope that this communication
will correct any erroneous impression
of the student council’s petition.
