Concerning Oregon Football Players,
Coaches, Finances and Presidents
Let it be known to all the world that Oregon is proud of her
1925 football team. The Const Conference rating with Oregon
gracing the cellar by virtue of five defeats and no victories
does not begin to tell the story.
Between the lines of that tale which starts, “Washington—
Five Wins and no Defeats,” and ends, “Oregon—No Wins and
Five Defeats,” is another story indeliby written which will be
remembered, recalled and retold as often as the Washington
Victorious” story. It is the tale—the.one between'the lines—
of a team which took pummelings from four coast conference
teams and came up for a fifth time to lack one point of toppling
off the coast champion.
* * * *
Everyone on the coast knows about it now—how Oregon, the
conference tail-ender, refused to accept her inevitable dilibbing
The game. . . Washington 15, Oregon 14. . . . with
lady luck proving for Washington. So it was, Oregon came
back, and Oregon is proud of her men, who in the midst of de
feat, were happy to have Washington, sons of the Northwest,
proclaimed the champions. . . . Yes, Oregon is proud of her
men. Remember that.
# # * #
With us now is the task of selecting a new coach, of late
years an annual affair coming with the regularity of the new
freshmen and sorority teas, (let a coach with a one year con
tract—keep him one season with several games lost let him
go—get another to repeat the same process—to lose eleven, tie
one, and win two conference games in three years. The moral
of this little story should be very clear and concise to anyone
who will give heed: Get a good coach; give him a contract of
sufficient tenure to allow the building ot a strong team; and
in order to bring this about, pay a Good Coach salary to this
man, and hire 1 lie assistants he desires.
This brings up the question : Shall we pay a coach as much
as a president? Also the sidelight: Which do we need the
most—coach or president? To the first query: Yes. Pay the
coach more than a president if necessary to secure the right
man. And to the second: li we must choose one or the other,
give us a president! but as we are to have both give us each
as soon as possible, with tliQ most speed concentrated on the
selection of a coach.
# * # #
We can afford to take ample time in the selection of a presi
dent because that executive may remain in the chair .for ten,
twenty or thirty years; and in the interim, while waiting for
a president, the University will get along very nicely. Selec
tion of a coach is a different matter, with spring practice not
far away. Furthermore, coaches—statistics demonstrate—are
a restless sort, being sent on their way with shocking rapidity.
Selection of a coach is pretty much like buying a new automo
bile: Buy ’em, ride ’em, wreck ’em or sell ’em, and inside of
five years get another. Therefore, let us make reasonable haste
in selecting a coach.
* t • *
But why compare coaches and presidents? The students
are entering athletic teams in intercollegiate contests. To as
sist their teams in attaining victory they wish to pay the coach
a high salary—which will certainly he regained in gate receipts.
As long as the players aren’t paid why worry about making a
good investment? Financial support is essential to the conduct
of sports; and because the figures are large does not make the
* # # #
As for the president—lie is engaged by the regents to super
vise the education work of the institution, lie is not an em
ploye of students; and since the field for selection of a good
president is much wider than that of a good coach it is reason
able that a good coach, with tenure of office precarious, might
well command the higher salary of the two.
* #' « #
Finally, as nearly as may be ascertained, there appears to
be small argument about the program in selecting a coach. The
lessons of the past three or four years have paved the way for
almost universal agreement, all of which speaks encouragingly
of the future.
A Matter of Etiquette: Do
Not Rob. Burn or Frighten Guests
If precedent is followed the high school student-presidents,!
editors, managers and league officers are due for a variety of
high-powered entertainment when they reach the campus this
week-end. The fraternity houses will open their doors to the
younger people and will immediately begin to scare the wits
out of them with fake robberies, mill-race parties, conflagra
tions, and miscellaneous and sundry practical jokes. Funny,
yes, but not included in the latest Uules of Better Conduct.
These same high school students, the pick of all the high;
schools, arc guests of the University that week end. Very few
of them have ever visited the University before, and they will
carry their hastily made impressions back to the home town.
If disturbed by clever "eawlidge pranks,” the reports of our
conduct will be none of the best. Therefore, refrain from all
*obrytaMiy and nonkense.

Seers knew the outcome of the game
before it was ever started, but to
make the surprise n^ore effective
we refrained from prophesying and
lot you all get it straight from the
grid-graph, radio or Imperial hotel,
however lucky you were. After the
Wasliington-Cal game at Berkeley
the papers were full of stories of
how people had liemorrages and
epileptic fits over the excitement.
They had nothing on the Oregon
and Washington rooters. Rumor
has it that many new candidates for
the state institution at Puyallup
were discovered, and numerous
wrecks had to be escorted from the
field by white garbed attendants
bearing stretchers. Garbo and Sin
bad got so het up the last two min
utes of the game, we found it im
possible to hold them, and they
tore from the sidelines to where the
timekeeper squatted with pistol
raised in air. They attempted in
every way to keep him from lean
ing on the trigger, even offering
him a life membership in the Seers,
but he was getting too big a sal
ary and he did his duty. As it was
they both chased the poor man
around the field several times after
the game but ho finally succeeded
in eluding them.
As a result, Garbo, who can’t run
fast, was lodged in the city tombs
for the -night, and Sinbad spent two
days in the hospital with a dislo
cated vocal chord.
THE PRIZE WINNER
Now that Xmas is coming
and all good little girls are re
membering to say their prayers
at night and ho very kind and
thoughtful to all their young
gentlemen friends, we think it
fitting and proper that we pre
sent this commodious little cart
to Carolyn Bodary, so that she
may hitch it on to the hind end
of the pullman going home at
Xmas time, to carry the many
gifts and tokens of friendship
that she is sure to receive from
her many admirers.
