it not be said, after the game today, that
the students at large did not do their
Second String Games
A FTER all, there isn’t a great deal of
■L*- justice in this game called football.
A man goes out for the Varsity—one
year, two, three, perhaps four years, and
never gets into a game, let alone making
a letter. The only reward, brought about
by the love of the game, is the satisfac
tion that he has contributed needed oppo
sition for the Varsity.
Why not arrange some games with
other colleges for the second and third, or
even more teams? A series of contests
with 0. A. C., perhaps, might be arranged
whereby the second string men could
have the opportunity of mixing in the
colors of the rival institution. The cheer
ing thousands might be somewhat deplet
ed, but it would be fare more fun for the
patient ‘scrubs’ than eternally warming
the bench.
Frosh Discipline
JUDGING from all appearances, the
Student Administration means busi
ness in the disciplining of the first year
men. A complete revision of the library
steps procedure, sanctioned by the stu
dent council, will provide a sure means
of punishment for offenders and will
eliminate the popular outdoor sport of
previous years—the paddling of the non

Co-operation of the students in regard

The request came about following a viola

can be sent in the laundry boxes,, and
that the penalty for disobedience of the
law is a heavy fine and a term of impris
ment. The boxes will be inspected after
this to make sure that no printed or writ
ten matter is hidden away in pockets or
tucked away in rolled socks. It is sin
cerely hoped that nothing comes out in
the wash.
Controversies come and controversies
go. Now it is the battle over the giving

sides possessing ardent champions. N\ by

To the Editor:
Without attaching the present inquiry to
the unmasking of personalities, and without any
malicious intent on the part of the writer to
offend or hurt anyone, he desires to put before
the campus public opinion the interests of the
Cosmopolitan club.
The only main headquarters of the foreign
element of our campus is the Cosmopolitan
club, while our American students have innum
erable. The field, therefore, is unbounded for
the consumption of American talent and
leadership. By virtue of this fact, the writer
is inclined to believe, that American sports
manship and hospitality points to the fitness of
a foreigner to guide the destinies of the Cos
mopolitan club. That another instance in which
this selection is not done, is about to repeat,
or it has repeated already. The reason is not
that our foreign element lacks talent or leader
ship. The talent was drowned and buried, so
to speak, in its enormous mass. In other words,
in this so-called democracy of ours, quality is
assailed and tyranize by quantity. That was
exactly what happened in the election of offi
cers for the Cosmopolitan club, in which, to the
sorrow of the writer, certain factions of our
foreign students admit that they are incapable
of running their affairs, that they must tax
American leadership' and talent with another
office, as their actions can be judged in the
last analysis.
I doubt, if to an appreciable extent, Ameri
can students realize how auspicious and oppor
tune the presence of foreign students in this
campus. These foreign students comlp almost
from every nook of the world, with a message
in the characteristics of their thought and ex
perience, which are accumulation of years and
years of varied and different environment and
practices. The value of their presence is to
lea»n of these first hand. It is, therefore,
necessary that they must appear as they want
to appear, by conducting their own affairs. We
can see, therefore, the advisability of a for
eigner to preside the Cosmopolitan club. I trust
that students show their alliances and reactions
fearlessly in this matter. Very truly,
More Cosmopolitan
To the Editor: >■
You are indeed aware of the existence of a
student organization known by the name Cos
mopolitan, composed mainly of students of for
eign countries and whose main purpose is to
promote international friendship and under
standing and at the samje tima tell us the story
of their country in terms of their own feeling.
Though, perhaps, an unwritten law, but it was
understood that the officers of the organiza
tion be chosen from the'foreign students, in
order to give them the opportunity to develop
their capacity of leadership because of the fact,
or perhaps unfortunately, that they are. ex
cluded from other student organizations. This
is perhaps the only organization where they can
hold office and up to this year they have been
enjoying this privilege. But alas! w,hat do we
see this year? The American students, perhaps
not through a fault of theirs, they are depriv
ing the foreign students of their only chance.
Much could be said about this subject, but it is
Much could be said about this subject, but is
best that we refrain from such a discussion.
Nevertheless, it will be best to ask ourselves
what will the opinion of these foreigners be
about America when they return to their native
lands? Will they not be justified in arriving
to the unfair conclusion, that Americans are
so often unjustly accused of, that the Ameri
can’s only desire is to dominate over everybody?
Oklahomh A. and M.—The class in social
etiquet offered here to men has attracted only
three applicants to date.
The matter of religion—ot lack of it—-among
students seems to be worrying a good many
persons, including ministers and editors of stu
dent papers. A long editorial in the University
Daily Kansan says in part: “Some see the ex
planation (of the lack of interest in the re
ligions organizations at the university) in the
crowded nature of student life. With so many
other demands upon his time, they say a stu
dent will regard taking a part in religious
organizations as ‘another activity,’ and treat
it with the usual much divided, hurried inter
est, or he will give it up entirely for the new
kinds of activity afforded by university life.”
The Columbian Spectator gives the question
a new twist bv observing: "Of course, what the
average college man thinks or UOd may no
interesting enough; but not as interesting,
surely, as what God mtist think of the average
college man.”
Before closing, wo fool called upon to quote
in part 'rom •'Autumnal Resolve” in the Cor
nell Sun's “Berry Patch.” It seems so much
in the spirit of the day:
. . . . Now the fat packed tombs of learning
Yield a grimly silent call ,
To weightier hours,
And 1 answer with a heart eager
With the fresh eagerness of beginnings—
l will work.
The multitudinous hours
Frittered in the past
Are gone.
Let them be gone,
For now L gaze upon the rising dawn
Of learning’s day
With quiet zest.
1 will work—
For a couple of weeks, anyway.
Good Morning! as they say in Thibet, Are
you all up in the air over the game this after
, After the noise and energy expended in. last
night’s rally, it is wondered by some that the
Oregon student body can make much of a show
ing at the game this afternoon. The Seers make
a prophecy: that they will be there three
thousand strong, and yelling louder than before.
(These might be memorized, and recited be
tween halves at the game, to keep the spirits
There is a young lady we know,
Who always is seen on the go,
But when she got there,
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had parsnips.
Break, break, break,
On thy cold, grey field, oh yells,
And after the game is over,
We’ll be seeing Nellie home.
T’wds the night of the Bally,
And all through the town,
Not a creature was sleeping,
Even as you and I.
The saddest word that ere were penned,
Are always these, “Oh, will you lend—?”
And Idaho may fight to the end,
But we will win!
G. Hosafat, who was a cheer-leader
in his adolescent days back at Oxfo’d,
may honor the assembly at the game by
helping Freddie and his brand new
Dukes in a few yells. Cheers are led
differently now than they were in his
day, he says. In those days the leaders
did all the yelling. That’s what they
were paid for, he declares. Martin has
a pretty easy time of it, he thinks.
However, he has a suggestion to
make that might improve one of the
Oregon yells, and which we ardently
agree upon. When singing the chorus
of “Mighty Oregon,” it would make
more sense to the song if “Vandals’
line” is substituted instead of “Aggies’
line,” and ending up with “Idaho may
fight to the end but we will win!”
instead of the usual reference to O. A.
C., which doesn’t figure until Home
coming. Of course, it is to be rememy
bored that “We’ll give a long' cheer
for Dick’s men” is the correct way to
sing that line.
Owing to the magical powers possessed by
the Seven Seers, it is our privilege to make
predictions on things that are yet to come. It
is by means of our all-seeing eye, that peers
into the land of tomorrow, piercing the fogs of
uncertainty; and scrutinizing events that are
yet unknown. And our prophecies never fail.
Let it be known then, among you students,
profs, and otherwise, that the Seven Seers do
make a solemn prophecy in regard to the great
game that is to talw plase this afternoon. As
yet the field is empty, the grandstand vacant,
no cheers break the quiet of the sunny after
noon, no thud of leather against leather sounds
dully as the two armies of the pig-skin clash,
but the all-seeing eye is scrutinizing mightily,
it sees the Vandal hordes sweep down the field
with fight in their eyes, it sees the onslaught
waged against the eleven in blue and white
jersies, it sees men fall and be carried from
the field, it sees passes fail and passes com
pleted, it sees men break through for many
yard gains, it hears the hoarse, terse signals
of the quarter-back and the, deafening cheers f
.from the throats of hundreds of loyal Ore- '
gonians on the grandstand, if even sees the lines
of deep concern on the face of Dick Smith and j
the other men on the side-lines, it sees fight, j
struggle, brawn, brain, waged by the two teams,
and then a score when the game is over that
rou are safe.in placing your money thus. The;
'(•edict ions of the Seers never fail. The mystic
umber seven again comes to the aid of the:
