‘IIE CLOCK tolled .112:150 yesterday noon and soon its hands
rested fit the hour of 12:40, the time set for the paddling
on the library steps of frosli breakers of traditions. Not a
guilty green-capper was in sight.
The truth is, the slips were not ready to be handed out by
the Oregon Knights 1o the offenders ns was planned and the
Order of the “O'’ had nothing to do. Meanwhile, the frosli on
tlie campus are going right on breaking these traditions.
When the Knights and the athletes took it upon themselves
to punish the first-year men it was not expected that they would
wait until the term was more than half over before starting in.
If tin* traditions are worth defending at all they should
have been enforced from the start. Both organizations have
had a month to make their plans for this paddling session and
probably have made them. But their laxness in getting things
started is unjustifiable. At the least, it will look sort of odd
to start enforcing age-old traditions the middle of fall term
when the way of enforcing them is little different from any

On the Trail
AST Wednesday, it seemed, Opportunity sat unnoticed in the
Oregon grand-stands and the Oregon band was not there
to welcome it. lie may have received a deep affront, but after
all he is not that jealous, avenging, bald-pate he is said to be,
but rather a gruff old gentleman with a twinkle in bis eye, who
sometimes slackens his pace so that one may walk beside him.
All that is brought to mind by the sight of the band a night
or two ago, marching out over the drill fields with only the
major and a drum to keep them in step. (Bands, too, should
be in step.) Perhaps they were hastening to catch the depart
ing guest. Who knows? They were out of sight immediately,
but it is a pleasant fancy to think of them deploying to right
and left, searching for old Opportunity.
And if they overtake him, could it not be as lie drifts
through the stadium again for Dad’s Day, and could they not
curtsy and bow in the manner of bands, and spell out a Wel
come sign for him? Would tin1 Dads mind? No need to
wonder, for they know him themselves, and it band successful
in pursuit, Dads, and Opportunity would join, don't you be
lieve, in a mightier .Mighty Oregon?
The students of the university will have a chance Saturday
afternoon at the football game to show their rural or urban
tendencies when the university institutes the announcement by
radio loud-speakers of the plays that are taking place on the
gridiron. This system is much in vogue in California and spec
tators do not comment upon it.

A momento of war days, when
it was used in the trenches to

years, and was resurrected for the
Washington fray. Probably it will
be heard again.
