Let’s Know the Facts
Shy has resigned and Oregon is without a football coach.
There are those who are inclined to sit back and say, “Well,
it’s all over, let’s go ahead and be champions again.”
There is a lot more to the situation than that. The whole
policy of future athletics at Oregon is to be determined. Sane
thinking and deliberate action are needed.
“A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” So says the
old adage. Each year the reputation of the University is in
jured by the squabble over the football coach. Usually those
who do most of the talking know the least about the case.
There has been some tendency in recent years to suppress
the real facts, and this has led some to believe that dark and
evil methods were being pursued when in reality those who
had to do with hiring Oregon’s football mentor were really
working hard for the best good of the institution.
The Emerald is printing Professor Howe’s articles in order
that the students may know as much as possible about the
coaching situation. It intends to print clippings and articles
giving as many phases of the case as possible. What it prints
it does not necessarily endorse. As a student body publica
tion it welcomes opinions from the student body, the faculty,
or the alumni. Fairness to all concerned is its aim.
Oregon is fortunate in having a man like Professor Howe
who has studied the case. His opinion is based on facts—not
gossip. He has watched football teams for years, and he knows
the inside of Coast athletics.
Every Oregon student owes it to himself to read the facts,
presented and consider them carefully if he wishes to discuss
the matter. If you don’t know the facts, your opinion is of
slight value. More harm is done to Oregon’s reputation by j
our athletic troubles than we on the campus realize. Alumni
are probably worse offenders than students when it comes to
making rash statements. Oregon owes much to those alumni
who give their advice and help with some real knowledge but
the former Oregonian who speaks on the strength of a wild
rumor is injuring his alnur mater.
Fairness first.
A student body meeting is scheduled for 11 o’clock today.
Although attendance at meetings of the A. S. U. 0. is not
compulsory those who arc interested in campus affairs and
want to have a part in good student government will be there.
Activities of the student body play an important part in the
lives of every one of our campus citizens. As a good Oregon
student be on hand when the gavel falls at 11 this morning.

To the Editor:
Tlio time is hundreds of years
ago. The scene is in a Roman
stadium. The Roman emperor looks
around. The thumbs of the people
point down, and they call for the
blood of the champion. The em
peror’s lustful eyes, turn to the scene,
below. The champion of recent
years lies in the dust of defeat.
Above him his victor stands with
ready sword, waiting the signal of
the emperor. Again the cry of the
multitude arose. Their champion
has failed them. Death to him!
Forgotten are his great victories of
last year, lie has met defeat once,
so he must die. Thumbs down! Tho
fallen gladiator is a “Shy” man.
He is too much of a champion to
cite to them his good records or'
the handicaps under which he has]
fought. One disastrous year—
thumbs down! What matter past:
records ? Seek a new champion. The j
sword falls. The multitude depart,,:
talking as they go of the possible j
new champion.
Yes, human nature is the same,
whether it be regarding the dying
gladiator or a football coach. We
ore like the Roman multitude, we
cannot take defeat. Thumbs down;
T. P. O.
To the Editor:
Why is it that man’s attitude to
ward his fellow men, who has
achieved to the best of his ability,
is oftimes likely to be marked be
ingratitude rather than by an em
bracing fellowship and words of on
couragement? It is a matter of
small comfort to the weak and
sentimental, who are content to be
lieve the general idea that a man
meets with just the degree of suc
cess that he deserves. The univer
sal acceptance of such a cold prin
i-ipie would do much to discredit
the belief, commonly held by the
unsuccessful that merit and virtue
seldom meet their just rewards.
The attitude of a part of the
alumni of this institution against
Varsitv Coach ••Shy” lluutiugtou in
the matter of the football eontrq
versv which has recently come to a
head is in the main one of personal
animosity. The spirit of these in
dividuals has been one of tearing
down rather than of building up
Oregon’s football machine. They
have failed to give constructive
suggestion on the football situa
tion. Quite the opposite they have
been for the most part voicing
destructive criticism about Hunt
ington’s coaching methods and his
ability to coach.
The term “hypocrites” is odious
to most of us and we don’t usually
jlike to be thought of in such con-1
nection, but certainly there is a
faction of the alumni who by their
actions cannot be thought of in any
other position than just that. They j
have “hand-shaked” Huntington
and have extolled his abilities as a
coach and have praised him before
the student body; but behind the
scenes they were ready and waiting
for the opportunity to throw him
down the back stairs so to speak.
The whole situation has been one of
unpleasantness and “backbiting”
all the way through.
The late ex-President Roosevelt
voiced a sentiment more truthful
<than poetic when he said, “To avoid
criticism, say nothing, do nothing,
and be nothing.” This is what Ore
gon’s next football coach will have
to live up to unless certain of the
alumni change their attitude. Sin
