iff Congress of March 3, 1879.
“Speaking With Tongues”—And of Them
'J'HE PAULINE epistles were primarly concerned with
“charity,” an article which may or may not have been a
distant relative of the Oregon Spirit—a remote ancestor, so to
speak. “Speaking with tongues” was rather taken for granted,
a by-product, a secondary consideration. But the student body
of the University of Oregon is not so comfortably situated as
regards languages. They are taught in classes, and the gram
mar is to be consumed with little side-trimmings of conjugations
and declensions; but comparatively few students get the real
pleasure out of using the languages thus learned.
True, there are the language clubs, some with delightfully
unpronouncable names, but these meet only on certain definite
dates, and everyone does not belong. The Emerald believes it
high time .that it was made possible to use these languages ac
quired by the skin of one’s teeth or the sweat of one’s brow. A
means should be provided whereby a conversational facility
could be gained by daily exercise of the foreign vocabularies.
A French table, or a German table in the dormitories is usual
among many of the eastern colleges and universities. Oregon
students taking summer school at Berkeley would find that
many of the boarding houses there advertise such tables as a spe
cial service. At these tables nothing but the specified foreign
language is spoken. This can be done with considerable profit
and enjoyment in eating places where there are enough lan
guage students to make it possible.
Figures compiled for last term at the registrar’s office show
that, there are enough languages, and students taking languages
to supply a miniature tower of babel. French, the “world’s
polite language,” leads with a registration in the various
courses of 812. Spanish, with a consideration, perhaps, of the
growing trade relations with our neighbors In the south, is
second, with 492. German, with a heavy registration of scien
tific students, is third, with 225. The so-called “dead” lan
guages come in for their share, Latin with 85, and Greek, which
is growing, with 25. Italian and tlie Norse languages have 39
and 24, respectively.
Granting that some of these figures represent duplicates,
where one student takes more than one course, anil granting,
too, that certain students have no other interest, in languages
than completing graduation requirements, there would undoubt
edly be large numbers of persons who would really enjoy such
an arrangement for conversation. ■>
Just how such a plan could be made remains a problem.
Some one may perhaps have to set the fashion, as with bobbed
hair or health bread, and the rest will follow simply enough.
With (ireek and Latin it is possibly out ot the question, though
it would indeed be charming to see certain of the young orators
following the example ot Demosthenes (at least we hope it was
he) and learning to speak with their mouths full of olives in
stead of pebbles. Or possibly a Latin student could say fit
tmgl\, over the last bite of a glorious piece of pie, “Sic transit
gloria mundi!” As spring comes on, too, the French students
will have more and more to say about “la joie de vivre.” Oh,
there are no end of delightful possibilities.
lheie certainly ought, however, to be a genuine chance for
French and Spanish tables, or French and German tables. And,
to invert the Pauline line, and adapt it to modern conditions
past all recognition, 1 hough you have the Oregon Spirit, it
is well to have two tongues instead of one.”

Two R. O. T. C. hats are the latest
additions to the collection. Over
coats, raincoats, caps and hats, rub

Among the raincoats still hangs the
mysterious yellow slicker with its

THINKING AS A. SPOET
Athletics as it is run in univer
sities has been severely criticized
because it provides active partici
pation for so few students. Thous
ands sit on the sidelines and yell
themselves hoarse while eleven men
engage in competition with the
same number from another school.
It lias been pointed out that the
method is essentially wrong and
that it would be much better if
athletics were not so specialized
but more general in nature.
Athletics, however, is not the
only activity in which a few strong
persons participate to the conse
quent disadvantage of countless
others. The field of thought is oc
cupied by a few giants and the rest
of us sit on the bleachers cheering
wildly but neglecting through either
carelessness or lack of interest to
do our own bit of free thinking.
There is no excuse for it. The
field of thought is wide. No cer
tain number is required to make up
I a team of intelligent and deliber
ative thinkers. No strict rules
bind the players. Superiority of
technique is not required; each is
allowed to play the game according
to his potentialities.
Life would be enriched if more
people would enroll in the sport of
I free thinking. Accepting at face
value the opinions of others has a
I deadening effect upon society; new
opinions are invigorating and liven
the daily task. If more people real
ized this the world would be a more
interesting place in which to live.

D.ILC. WRESTLERS WIN
Varsity Takes One jMatch;
Final Score is 32 to 8
Although the Oregon wrestlers
put up a game fight against the O.
A. C. grapplers, the visitors man
aged to win four out of five match
es, and rolled up a score of 32
against 8 for the varsity, in a dual
meet held at the men’s gym Sat
urday afternoon. Most of the
matches, which were evenly con
tested, went by falls.
Captain Nixon of the Aggies inet
his conqueror in Ford of Oregon,
in the 125-pound class. The first
round was a draw, the second was
a decision for Nixon, but the var
sity grappler came back in the
third and deciding round and
pinned Nixon to the mat in five
minutes, 47 seconds. Nixon is
rated as one of the best grapplers
on the coast in his weight.
Bussell, of the Aggies, jjinned
Wingard in 2 minutes, 7 seconds, in
the third round of the 135-pound
division. The first round was won
by Bussell and the second was a
draw. In the 145-pound class,'
Selfridge, coast champion, proved
to be too experienced for Peterson
of Oregon. Selfridge won two falls
from Peterson, the first in 6 min
utes, 59 seconds, and the second in
The best bout of the matinee was
between Bryan of the Aggies and
Leavitt of Oregon. Bryan pinned
the local grappler twice, 'getting
the first fall in 6 minutes, 42 sec
onds, and the second in 4 minutes,
46 seconds. On each occasion
Leavitt was the aggressor and had
his man on the defense.
By taking the odd fall, Publos
of O. A. C. defeated Jones of Ore
gon’. Publos took the first round
in 5 minutes, 47 seconds, Jones the
second in 2 minutes, 50 seconds, and
Publos the last in 3 minutes, 47 sec
onds. The matches which were full
of action, were witnessed by more
than 500 persons.
