Well, the season opens Wednesday.
Let’s get out the brass band and all
the officials and have our own little
“big league” opening day. Oregon
plays host to the Whitman nine for
two days and then after a one day
layoff will tackle the classiest team
in little old Nippon.
Like the rest of the conference
teams, the sons of Marcus Whitman
are an unknown quantity, but it is
said that they have a real pitcher, and
that is quite a bit, if the team works
right behind him. The Meiji outfit
has its own Walter Johnson for the
varsity to watch.
The last telegram received by Jack
Benefiel from the Japanese states
that they are having a good time and
like the schedule fine. One thing
about a foreign team. The players
have the edge on us here. They can
call their plays in their native tongue
and then they can understand our
plays. There should be a universal
baseball slang.
Don’t start to worry about the
Webfoot baseball chances right now.
The boys haven’t had a real chance
to get going yet, due to the weather
and a bad field. The pepper is there
this year and they have a peppery
A great many were doubtful of
Billy Reinhart in basketball. Some
may be worrying about baseball. Sit
tight and wait. Billy may have some
trouble with the pitchers at first,
but before he is through they will
know something. Reinhart is trying
to get his mound staff to use change
of pace.

The rest of the team looks good;
better in fact than it has for two
seasons. It can be classed as a vet
eran organization, because all the boys
have been playing ball for years and
with some fast teams. If the pitch
ing staff delivers at all, the team
should be a winner.

herst student who was ‘ undisguisedly
interested in his studies.’ This re
markable phenomenon led Mr. Price
to visit the college and attempt to un
ravel the mystery.”
He says further, “What seems to
be certain is that the process of im
parting information to more or less
willing students suddenly became
transformed and enlivened.
“The boys at Amherst actually be
came exoited about ideas. They ar
gued with their professors as man to
man, in little study groups. They ar
gued among themselves about abstrac
tions, when according to normal col
legiate standards they should have
been devoting their time and thought
to athletics.”
On this campus, Meiklejohn said,
“The alumni should grow mentally.
We should educate our alumni.”
Might it not be he was thinking of
the Amherst alumnus, who said, “It
is humiliating to us alumni to hav*
the teams of our college keep losing
games. After all, when you get out
of college, the doings of the teams
are about the only connection you
have with it. And all the public gen
erally knows about a college is wheth
er its teams win or lose.
“If they lose, you have to stand
a lot of kidding from your friends,

and if the losing goes on long enough,
they begin to think your college is
i punk. I don’t care how good a teaoh
| er Meiklejobn is. If he can’t give the
| college winning teams, he is no man
for me.”
Following the talks‘given here at
the University, there were few who
were not struck by the force of his
judgment of American educational in
And many said, “Yes, I believe he
is right, but he was not constructive.
I He showed us the imperfections, but
i suggested no remedy.”
There was not time,

; the years it broadened through his
! stimulus, an answer to the charge
that his criticism is destructive?
In his farewell addres# to his stu

'this latest of educators was develop
“Let us have two colleges instead
of one, or better, two in one, the first
devoted to the general aim, the sec
ond, in greater part, at least, given
up to special studies, and both to
| gether mastered by the common aim
-of trying to understand and share the
labor and ecstasy of human know
ledge and human apprehension.”
The first Would be the junior col
lege, where younger members would
gain a “compelling sense of something
that must be done, some quality that
must be Faken on, some power that
must be gained, some sensitiveness
that must be won.”
Here then, Meiklejohn believes,
should be the preparation, the culti
vation of mind, for the more inten
sive work of the senior college. “A
recognition by us all that there are
certain things which one must know,
must feel, must understand, if he de
sires to be regarded as a member of
this community. Unless he does the
things we do, and loves the things
we love, he is not one of us.”
An examination should be given to
determine the eligibility to pass into
the senior college, where he will be
brought “into actual contact with the
working minds by which the know
ledge and apprehension of mankind
are made.”
The merit of this examination would
not be in its severity. Seven main
questions are given as suggestive:
1. Can he and does he read books-?
In books is gathered up the eulture
and knowledge of the race. A boy
who has not learned to go to them,
to live in them, to understand their
meanings, is not, in method at least,
upon the highroad to education.
2. Can he express his own thoughts
in writing?
3. Can he speak clearly and ac
4. Can he listen to and understand
another’s speech?
5. Has he a sense of fact, disting

draw up an inference, and see
what implications and inferen
ces follow?
7. Has he a sense of values by

recognize, the things worth

our choosing?

ters the senior college, where are
greater freedom, greater responsibil
ity, and more urgent obligations.
Here he will give most of his time
to one major interest. This interest
should be “a group of related studies,
bound together by some common in
terest, and fusing together in terms
of some central inquiry or investiga
tion. ”
This organization, Meiklejohn be
lieves, should be composed of intel
lectual interests and problems and
not of immediate practical pursuits
for which specific preparation is need
ed. It should have such unity that
a single test would be sufficient for
examination at the end of study. This
would call for a more informal rela
tionship between teacher and pupil.
“The professor should be the schol
ar, the student his apprentice.”
There should be a balancing of in
terest requiring study outside the ma
jor field, for he says, “It would not
do to let our special study drive away i
the fundamental aim which we would
make it serve, the aim of so knowing
and feeling our human life and men’s
interpretations of it that one is free
in living it.”

plan, the one he Would have force out
