It’s Up To You, Student
SATURDAY Oregon's grid warriors face their greatest obstacle to
an undefeated game record this season when they go to Corvallis
to meet their traditional rivals, Oregon State.
With the big gun of the Webfoot backfleid, Johnny Kitzmiller,
silenced in action against the Bruins here last week, Oregon is at
a disadvantage, but the loss of one man, however hard to replace,
does not mean the loss of a game. The old Oregon fight is still as
strong as ever and it's up to the students to prove that at the rally
tonight and at the game Saturday.
A Beaver football player was quoted in Wednesday's Oregon
State Barometer as challenging the orange and black rooters, “If you
beat Oregon in the stands, we will beat them on the field.” The
Barometer put this up to the Oregon State students with a plea to
The Emerald puts a similar challenge up to Oregon students. The
Emerald believes Oregon rooters have just as muc hand more pep
any day than any other group of students. We can show it in the
stands at Corvallis by cutting loose with enthusiasm and showing our
Beaver friends that Oregon has spirit and can outyell them at every
But as Oregon students we must^jemember one thing we will
be the guests of Oregon State at its Homecoming game. Let's prove
our spirit and pep, but keep it within gentlemanly bounds.
Fight ’em, Oregon, in the stands as well as on the field. We
can do it.
Instructor, Too, Must Help
RECENTLY a suggestion was made that students who were dis
satisfied with the courses in which they were enrolled or with
the instructor in charge should seek personal contact with the pro
fessor with the hope of bringing about a mutual understanding. This
suggestion was followed by an editorial in this column flung at those
who shun such action ami call it “handshaking.”
A communication printed in yesterday’s issue unveils a hazard
that may be facing many students. Perhaps the instructor is not
working with them, perhaps he is not easily met, and perhaps lie
discourages personal cooperation by an attitude of coolness and supe
riority. If such is the case, we are sad. It is the professor's duty
and to his advantage that he spend time with his students individually
— not turn away from them with a preoccupied gesture and wave them
from his room.
Often the instructor may feel overworked. His correspondence
and his papers may be waiting. But lit must act as the lawyer to
his clients, or the merchant to his patrons through them he receives
his livelihood. He must consider it an interest in his position. Stu
dents who study under a congenial and cooperating instructor reap
The Oregon campus is different odd. In few other schools do
students, and occasionally faculty men, look upon such conferences
as a means to secure better grades through underhand, supposedly
illegal, and dishonest methods.
Glancing into the history of this archetype, we might find its
origin from those who have faced the instructor, found a pleasant and
helpful man, increased their understanding of classroom questions,
and-profited by better grades. Perhaps these students were dubbed
"handshakers.” It was foolisn no doubt and in the present age of
modern education adolescent ideas of students and professors should
Words, Yes, Words
SCHOOL marching song has been written for the University of
Oregon. It is a great song a song that will last for many
years one that will ire sung by many l niversity generations. It has
heen written by John Stark Evans, for many years director of the
men's glee club and instructor in piano in Oregon's outstanding school
Beginning with this issue the Emerald is sponsoring a campus
wide contest to secure suitable words for music so well written, ft
will be a difficult task, tor words must be of lasting sort the kind
to instill spirit in Uie hearts of every Oregon booster before they
will be accepted as the official lyric.
A truly great prize is being offered. Though not of a tangible
nature, it will be coveted by tin1 winner, tlis words will come from
the lips of every Oregon man and woman in the years of ttie future.
The Emerald asks that everybody try bis or her hand at song
composition. All will be in an attempt to produce for the school words
which may fit the situation. They will be words for the University
of Oregon none other.
Will Hugers says that the world is no better off today than it
was immediately following the war. We ask you, Will, can you offer
any suggestions ?
The editor of the Daily Californian has aroused much enmity
by asking a few questions. Folks always object when weak points

Be at Assemblies
Committee Plans To Bring
Something new in the way of all
campus assemblies is being planned
by the committee on free intellec
tual activities, which plans to bring
to the Oregon campus this year
a number of eminent men as
speakers in a series of lectures
which will be free to the students,
Dr. H. G. Townsend, chairman of
the committee announced yester
The committee intends to sup
plement various interests on the
campus by bringing speakers who
can contribute something to the
intellectual life of the students,
men who are leaders both in the
arts and the sciences.
Dr. Townsend says that due to
the fact that the campus is geo
graphically isolated from other
universities, in contrast to the
eastern schools, there is a
danger of both campus and stu
dents becoming provincial.
Because 'the plans are not yet
complete, the names of the speak
ers cannot be given out.
The committee, besides Dr.
Townsend, consists of Dr. Clara
Smertenko, Mrs. Mabel E. Mc
Clain, Dr. Warren D. Smith, Dr.
L. S. Cressman, Dr. _E. C. A. Lesch,
and Ernest G. Moll.
On Markets for Prunes
Professor H. C. Hawkins of the
school of business administration
spoke before the annual meeting
of the Oregon State Horticultural
society last evening in the Com
merce building on the subject of
“Overseas Markets for Northwest
Professor Hawkins gave an anal
ysis of the problems of marketing
of Oregon prunes in European
countries and pointed out the
weaknesses in the present market
ing of the Oregon crop and the
strength of marketing plans as
used by various European import
ers. From these two points he
drew an analogy of what might be
done for the Oregon fruit grower
in European markets such as Eng
land, Germany, the Scandinavian
countries and many others.
He also pointed out the competi
tion that Oregon prunes are meet
ing in Europe from the countries
of France and Jugo-Slavia and the
possibilities of building up the Ore
gon prunes on merits not common
to the competitors.
