Clean up Bonfire Debris
P ON Skinner’s butte is a gigantic black scar—tlic ashes
and refuse left from the Homecoming frosh bonfire. The
sit(> is an eye-sore to the city of Eugene, whose citizens must
gaze upon the blackened ruins every time they walk up the
Eugene townspeople have raised no formal protest against
the holding of the bonfire on the butte, but 1 be University
and the freshman class owe it to the city to remove the debris
and in some way try to eradicate the unimpressive sight which
now stares down on Willamette street.
A proposal was made by a public-spirited downtown busi
ness firm to plant grass and poppies over the spot which was
left after the bonfire. They agreed to finance the move, but
investigation showed that the soil was not of a character which
would produce any satisfactory results.
Besides the black ashes directly on the site of the bonfire,
there is considerable debris and broken box-wood lying around
on the side of the butte. This should be cleared off and the
spot be made as presentable as possible to the human eye.
After a time a natural growth of grass will spring up to cover
Eugene is trying to map out a program of beautifying the
butte and tin* university’s use of it as a site for tin* bonfire
is in direct conflict with it, so that the student body owes it
to the city to clean up after themselves.

the Homecoming parados, tli^> rally Monday afternoon, all
The rally may seem the least important of those three
proofs, yet it has a significance which overshadows the other
two. Those of the1 students who saw the number of musicians
turning out Monday afternoon, who felt their thrill of enthu
siasm, who felt their pulses quicken with the drum heats, dis
covered a new note in the band itself.
There was a feeling of vigor, of well-being, of ability. Just
as a poor singer keeps silent and mumbles because he doubts
himself, and a Caruso throws all his power into his song—
just so did the old band mutter and stumble, and the new band
laugh as it played.
The whole band goes to Portland for the Hawaii game Sat
urday, and their confidence inspires confidence elsewhere.
Proof that football is a money-making proposition in one of
its lighter forms can be seen by the number of games being
played yearly in the larger cities. The varsity plays two games
in Portland, and the year’s schedule included Seattle. Palo Alto
and Miami. The frosh go down to Medford where a larger
gate is assured. The campus has seen three games, two prac
tice lilts and a set-up. College pep must necessarily suffer by
being left out in the cold.
“As a big, brotherly institution, Oregon State* is interested
in the difficulties of HER sister college,’’ reads a sentence re
garding Willamette university in the editorial column of the
current Barometer. It would seem that the Barometer is
straddling the fence in an effort to keep out of the dominant

he will be able to stop their fumbling by getting them accus

inaugurated to help solve the embarrassing situations when
freshmen wait on table at exchange dinners in their usual in
In an attempt to refute charges that the fraternity system
is “a most undemocratic sort of institution,” the Pniversity
of California is instituting a probe into the system. Which, we
may add, is a difficult assignment, especially at schools where
money makes as many wheels revolve as do brains.

Tin Collegiate Pulse
Every educational institution is
largely pledged by the sportsman
ship of its athletes and fans. No
athletic organization can be out
standing or even normally success
ful if built around one player. It
must depend upon the combined
ability and cooperation of every
member of the team.
For a pep squad to single out a
player and pay tribute to him dur
ing a game is bad psychology and
has the effect of breaking down
the morale of the others on the
team. No chain can be stronger
than its weakest link and if single
compliments should be paid, they
should be to the less able player
who is doing his best to assist the
team, and for the purpose of en
couraging him to even greater ef
forts. In any event individual '
praise is regarded as unsportsman
Another repugnant practice and
one that has repeatedly brought
forth unfavorable comment from
our athletes is the practice, by
those on the sideline, of making
use of unsportsmanlike phrases
such as “kill him,” “break his
neck" and so on. Of course, no
one wants to see these extreme
methods resorted to, for the play
ers on the opposing team are just
humans like our players, who meet
us in friendly competition, but the
use of such vulgar expressions
have a sickening effect upon the
players who are representing a
school that has this class of root
