Back in 1919 a husky youngster
from Eugene registered at Oregon
Agricultural college and took a fling
at rook football. Several critics said
that he was one of the best tackles
they had ever seen. Suddenly this
youngster decided that he would take
a hack at the higher standards of the
University and enrolled here in 1921.
During the season of that year he
bucked the varsity night after night
and then blossomed in 1922. Cogs
Campbell didn’t break into the select
circle of all-stars last year, but he
played a great game while he was in
the lineup. Cogs is rounding into form
now and his weight and fight will tell
in the remaining games of the season.
Right he is handicapped by a pair of
game legs, but this impairment gone,
he is going to give the other confer
ence tackles something to worry about
when they select the mythical eleven.
He may not make it, due to his late
start, but the critics will have to ad
mit that he played.
Readers, meet Mr. Bezdek Rockne
Dobie Warner Ellis and be sure you use
the initials when addressing him.
Right here on our own little campus we
have discovered a future football
mentor who may some day surprise the
football world with a wonder team.
In fact, he surprised the local fans the
other day with a wonder team.
Saint Mary’s academy had a football
team and then they secured Mr. B .R.
D. W. Ellis to outline the style of
play and coach the youngsters. Having
had some experience on the varsity last
year and this, Mr. Heavy Initialed
Ellis proceeded to mold a scoring ma
chine for the local school.
Friday the fans got a chance to see
the Ellis wonder team go against the
high school team of Junction City, and
they saw the wonder team wallop their
heavier opponents 19-7. Mentor Ellis
surprised the fans with a dazzling criss
cross and several other tricks of the

humorously. “I waited until I could

A certain typo of leader is the dom
inant Christian sects are complaining
that the modern university is destroy
ing the very foundations of faith in a
church centered around Christ as a
saviour and founded upon the Bible as
the revealed word of God.
That universities aro consciously and
designedly doing this is, of course, un
true. But universities must be loyal to
their own ideal which is freedom in
seeking the truth and the one reliable
method of discovering truth has been
proven to be the scientific method.
It seems to be the misfortune of
Christian theology to be committed to
the defense of certain traditional as
sumptions which do not fit in with the
better proven interpretations of science.
Scientific anthropology cannot logic
ally accept any such being as the Christ
of theology in its scheme. A rational
; history of literature can accept the
! Bible as little ns the Koran or the Vedic
hymns as being extra-human in author
ship. Likewise the Christian church can
claim no exemption from examination
among other human institutions and
| must be studied comparatively.
So the Christian sectarian is right
from his point of view in compiling his
bill of damages against the university.
But in his partisan teal he is wrong in
thinking that the universities are war
ring, therefore, against religion itself.
The universities are fast making it im
possible for a modernly educated person
to accept the traditional theology of
Christianity. But this theology is but
the temporary clothing of faith, a phil
osophy which can be abandoned.
In our liberal religious churches such
as the Unitarian, we are trying tto make
over the philosophic garment of re
ligion to meet the needs of modern
minded men and women.
This mental and spiritual attitude is
characteristic of our little Unitarian
church on Eleventh Avenue at Ferry
Street. We invite all, who seek a
church in which there is freedom of
opinion and tolerance toward all com
bined with sincere seeking after the
vital truths for the guidance of life,
to attend our services.
Next Sunday the sermon will be one
appropriate to Armistice Day, the
theme being “Christ or Mars.” The
soloist will be Frank Jue, tenor. Ser
vices begin at 10:45 o’clock.
There is a class for young women of
the University, led by Mrs. Vera Todd
Crow, in New Testament history, and
another class in philosophy for young
men of the University, led by the pas
tor, Frank Fay Eddy. Both classes
meet in the Manse, 1134 Ferry street, at
12 o’clock, noon.
Sunday evening at S o’clock, Dr.
Kimball Young will lecture in the
auditorium of the church on ‘‘Some
Contemporary American Groups as Seen
by a Psychologist.”
