Home Again to Oregon
“Home again,” the glad cry which wells up in the heart of
every returned son or daughter of Old Oregon is duplicated in
its intensity in the feelings of 2224 undergraduates who are now
citizens of the Eugene campus. The day of glad greetings, of
happy memories revived, of old class rivalries brought again to
the front and of the realization of how the University has grown,
is here again.
A great many Oregon students of classes long since gradua
ted from the institution were directly responsible for a great
many of the improvements which have come about in recent
years. Virtually everyone who has- ever taken work here has
done something to make a Greater Oregon.
The spirit of appreciation of the advantages enjoyed by the
present student body because of the work of those who have
gone before us is a big factor in prompting the homecoming
idea. We Oregon students are glad to see the old grads be
cause they are a part of us and we do want them to know that
the work they began is being carried on.
Although Oregon is nearing the status of a big University,
the alums still find the same brand of fight that has made
Oregon mighty and that has kept alive such traditions as that
of the “Hello.”
Outward changes are necessary to progress, but Oregon
students are still taught the essentials of real Oregon spirit that
came into being when the campus population was less than two
“Unite to Fight for Oregon”
When the whistle blows at 2:30 this afternoon on Hayward
field,—a field made famous by great battles and great players—
two crowds of rooters will thrill as they have seldom thrilled
before. Oregon and its grads will watch for the victory that
has usually been theirs, while the mass of Orange and Black
will pray for the breakdown of what they please to call a
Despite the long string of Oregon victories there will be no
over-confidence on the part of Lemon-Yellow supporters. The
spirit of support which will back Shy’s men in every play will
be a spirit that realizes that a strong team must be downed be
fore Oregon can nail another Beaver skin to the flagstaff.
This is a year when pride in Oregon spii'it should be at its j
highest. The season has not been particularly successful for,
us, yet the men are fighting as never before. Never a word of
grumbling has been heard from the team or the rooters. It
is always so. Even in actual games when scores are heaped
against us there is never a tendency to let down.
Let that spirit of fight ever be linked with the name of
Oregon, and today when the Beaver cries for victory let every j
man and woman “unite to fight for Oregon.”
Closely associated with Oregon and its traditions is the;
character and personality of our grand old man—Dr. John
Straub. Despite his recent illness the love for his boys and girls
has brought him back to the campus for the Homecoming. Of
necessity he cannot take too active a part in the festivities;
but he will be here, and his spirit—that indomitable spirit which
has ever been a part of Oregon and its students—will be a real
factor in this, our greatest Homecoming.

REMEMBER OREGON SPIRIT
To the Editor:
The Oregon spirit, as the older
men on the campus know it, requires
every Oregon student to be a gentle
man and a sportsman. It wins foot
ball games by clean playing and
clean rooting. It treats opponents
with courtesy, applauds when they
play brilliantly, and all the while
it inspires Oregon men to triumph
through sheer merit. It never gloats
over victory, but is only happy. De
feat it takes without alibi, and
smiles with a resolution to excel in
the next encounter.
The Oregon Spirit lives in every
Oregon man and woman on the

OH'S ANNUAL RALLY
Old Timers Gather and Dis
cuss Shady Past
The proverbial, traditional Home
coming rain isn’t dampening the
Homecoming spirit at Obaks the least
bit. Hundreds of old timers, men
representing several generations of
college life, conducted the annual
rally at Obak’s Kollege last night.
Perhaps it was the slogan: “Away
from the wife, Obaks is the life,’’
that brought so many back, but there
were a good many among those pre
sent that had sneaked away from “the
wife’’ just before the rally and joined
the gang at Obaks regardless of later
It hasn’t been a matter of “say
hello first’’ at Obaks, for everybody
is saying “hello” at the same time.
Conversations here are not being
based upon higher standards of edu
cation, stocks and bonds, insurance
rates, the cost of coal, Mailing food
or any of the other things that one
might expect from a group of died
in the wool alumni. On the contrary
the atmosphere is filled with stories
of the past: stories of the times that
deal with the sidg of university life
that is never mentioned in the cata*
logne; stories of life of things that
were done before “What will the state
think?” became the phrase that gov
erns all actions.
It is Homecoming week at Obaks
and the alumni know it. If you arg
trying to find a certain gTad call 48
and ask Obak—headquarters are here
—there’s a rally going on 24 hours
of the day at the Kollege that all
alumni return to.
BUT FINDS JOY
“Red O’Flanagan, ’05 stood silent
on the street in front of Obak’s Kol
legt and looked things over; he was
thoughtful and reflective. Slowly he
turned his head and gazed up Willa
mette, gazed long and steadily; then,
just as deliberately he looked down
Willamette. His mood was plainly
sorrowful, lonely and reminiscent.
“Fat” Brown, ’06 approached him
and a greeting followed. It was the
usual sort of greeting that embodied
all of the various exchanges of confi
dences that men who have not met for
years will exchange. The wives, the
kids, the price of hay, the dope on
the game, the bonfire, Jimmy Gilbert,
the income tax—all of these were in
cluded, but still O’Flanagan main
tained a downcast attitude.
Brown, sensing the situation, in
quired. “Red” failed to reply for
a time, but finally, “Oh, I’m getting
old I guess, but I cannot help but
think how things have changed—
there’s nothing the same as it used
to be, the buildings seem different,
the kids are strangers, the town has
grown, the profs are more reserved,
“You old fossil”, cried Brown, and
he grabbed him by the arm and
dragged him into Obak’s Kollege.
“Downhearted are you? Homesick
and think your old? Well, put this
cigar in your mouth, grab one of
those cues and I will show you that
college life has not changed one
darned bit and that no matter how old
a man may get that Obak’s Kollege
revives him. ’ ’
