Knows Neither Who
TJ1EBE is nothing occult in the
emergence of natural student
accompaniments of excitement as
cheering machines. Organizing gen
ius is not alone confined to Ameri
can business, so it would be strange
indeed if such a force would not be
exploited for spectacular effects.
In this way, united mass yelling
has come to be an engine; one tc
be carefully groomed by a corps oi
hostlers beforo each test; hardly
second to the athletic machine in
registering victory. But evolution
seems to have become accelerated
beyond the student appetite. For
when the logical sequenco to indi
vidual mimetic movements—highly
organized collegiate pageantry—is
offered, the Northwest student pal
ate revolts. It will have none of it.

Casey as a “former Oregon faculty
member.” if Washington doesn’t
assert its prior claims, w’ell and
good. But. although the Daily con
tinues refusing recognition of whom
it’s talking, in fairness to its alum

ber, it should acquaint itself with
what it is talking.
Concerning the Art
iiXT^TELL—lor a year or two I
' » am going to whittle.”
Such, according to press reports,
is the declaration made by President
C'oolidge when asked what ho in
tends to do when he retires to Ver
mont on the expiration of his term
The usual product of the pastime
is a pile of shavings, or whittlings if
you will; but in the hands of the ex
port whittler the wood may bo made
to take on a form of usefulness.
So much for the physical aspects
of whittling. Just as the knife of
steel is used to trim the wood to
meet the plan of the whittler, so
should the knife of criticism be used
to shape the individual to the re
quirements of life.
The years which he spends in pur
suit of an education is u period
wherein the student with a purpose
is seeking to build his mental equip
ment to such a state of perfection
as to require a minimum amount of
readjustment when it is placed in
That the modern educational sys
tem is still endeavoring to fit
square pegs into round holes, and
vice versa, is indicated by the num
ber of students wlio prepare to fol
low one occupation only to find
themselves unfitted for it.
Regardless of what his instructors
may try to do for him, tho final
shaping of his education remains
with the student. If he is to truly
fit himself for a definite purpose,
he must criticize his inner self.
Others may aid in determining what
course is to be adopted but he alone
has knowledge of his likes and dis
likes, of the inner conditions which
govern his real adaptibility to the
The amount of shavings which re
sult from the whittling out of an
object is largely governed by the
definiteness with which tho object
is conceived in tho mind of the
carver at the start of tho process.
In educational matters, however,
few courses, carefully attended to,
can bo said to bo just so much
wasted time for the individual even
though ho makes no specific use of
the knowledge gained in them; but
it is possible to greatly increase tho
efficiency of one’s education by
carefully considering the possible
value of a course before taking it,
thus eliminating much of the chance
that it will be scrapped later yn.
To shape the material to a pur- j

file time to whittle is now.
“A Wonderful Display”
The three senile alumni who
joined in the first raspberry letter
greet you. This time, however, we
wish to compliment the student body
upon its wonderful display of Ore
gon spirit and fight at Homecoming.
VVe believe that the alumni of tho
state join us in saying that it was
not only a marvelous celebration,
with the exception of the game, and
1 hat Oregon spirit is not dead. Tho
big thing now is not to let it even
get a night’s sleep before next year,
the year after or ten years lienee.
With proper support, we place that
first, the men coming up from tho
freshman team and a chance during
spring practice to acquaint the
squad with the fundamentals of
blocking, tackling, running interfer
ence and, in general, the basic prin
ciples of the game, there is no reason
why Oregon should not have a great
loam next your. Look at California
a year ago.

Secrecy so far shrouds all prac

Library Receives New
Fiction and Histories
“Growth,” by Booth Tarkington,
is one of the outstanding books just
received by the main library. This
is really three novels in one, for it
contains three parts of a single
study—-that of growth. The first
section is “Turmoil,” the second
“The Magnificent Ambersons,” and
the third, “The Midlanders.”
Other interesting new books are:
“Red Sky at Morning,” by Mar
garet Kennedy, who also wrote
“The Constant Nymph”; “Caroling
Dusk,” an anthology of verse by
negro poets; “China and the Pow
ers,” by Henry Kittredge Norton;
“Philosophy of the Recent Past,”
by Ralph Barton Perry, professor
of philosophy at Harvard Univer
sity; “French Poetry and Modern
Industry (1830-1870),” by Elliott
“Jesus” is written by the author
of “Under Fire,” Henri Barbusse.
In writing the book Barbusse says:
“I too have seen Jesus. He re
vealed Himself to me in the beauty
of precision. I love Him. I hold
Him to my heart, and I will cham
pion Him against others if need be.”
Five new books have been added
to the library’s series, “The His
tory of Civilization,” which is
edited by C. K. Ogden. They are:
“Mesopotamia,” by L. Delaporte,
late attache to the National Museum
of France; “Ancient Persian and
Iranian Civilization,” by Clement
Huart, member of the French Insti
tute; “Primitive Italy, the Begin
ning of Roman Imperialism,” by
Leon Home, profesgor in the Uni
versity of Lyon; “Art in Greece,”
by A. DeRidder and W. Deonna;
