Sportsmanship and Scores
OOMKBODY always has to be the loser in an athletic contest
^ and Coach Bill Reinhart’s Oregon basketball team has been
getting more than its share of reverses. The fact of the matter
is that the Webfoots are unceremoniously perched on the bottom
rung of the conference standings with seven straight losses to
We say credit because we believe it is creditable to lose a
contest in the right spirit. There has been no need for crying
towels on the Oregon team this year, although it is very unusual
for one of Reinhart's basketball teams being any place except
fighting for the lead of the conference race. The members of
the team have taken their reverses with true sportsmanship and
Reinhart has nothing but kind words for his team. The Web
foots have turned in some good games but have had the mis
fortune to meet the strongest teams in the league early in the
Reinhart will hustle his squad away from Eugene today to
make the annual road trip into eastern Washington and Idaho.
Needless to say, the Oregon squad is determined to make a cred
itable showing on the trip and to climb out of their lowly posi
tion in the league standings.
Student, support will go a long ways toward helping win the
games. Let the team know you are backing them—win or lose—
it is no easy task for a team to make an uphill fight as the
Webfoots will have to do. If we can’t win, let’s be good losers.
Good sportsmanship is the foundation of the American sys
tem of intercollegiate athletics. Let’s show that we have it at

The Emerald invites correspondence provides an “outlet for
campus steam" yet it must be aware of whose thoughts it is
prinling. It is permissible to assume a fictitious name when
tiie letter appears in the paper, but for reference purposes and
investigation by those who become interested, the correct cog
nomen must be on file.
A Political View of Art
'T'HE world’s struggle towards freedom Horn war and interna
tional anarchy by means of co-operation between nations
will not produce many tangible results until it rests on a founda
tion of mutual understanding between the publics of the nations.
Realizing this need, propagandists fot peace have formed
scores of organizations, which are typified on our campus in
international relations clubs and living organizations. Co-exist
ent with these agencies there is talk, with appropriate gestures,
about the necessity of “world friendship” and “international
good-will.” Value here >s colossal.
Anpther significant avenue of approach to the ideal of world
understanding is hidden behind two exhibits of national art which
were held recently a! the University art school. Hundreds of
students thronged the gallery to view specimens of modern
French art and a splendid collection of old Japanese prints.
Such exhibitions add their educational power to the develop
ment of a cosmopolitan appreciation of standards of beauty, and
mutual appreciation of the beautiful can be a spirit which tran
scends national boundaries and makes all men equals.
The city-states of ancient Greece did not cease to fight among
themselves until they were faced with Asiatic invasions and the
welfare of all had become tlie welfare of each. The American
colonies did not unite until a common purpose, freedom from
British rule, drew them together. And the nations of the world
will not co-operate until their peoples feel that they share a
broad field el common interests and mutual ends.
Economic and political factors are the most obvious bonds
between nations. But common standards of art and beauty may
have a large part in developing u public opinion which prefers
peace und co-operation to war and destruction.

something to do with yesterday’s
disastrous earthquake in New Zea
land in which more than a hun

Warren D. Smith, professor of ge
“On the east side of the island
there are faultings or places where
the sea sinks to a great depth.
Napier, one of the towns destroyed,
is located right on the edge of
these spots, and it is likely that
crumbling of the ground on which
the town is situated caused the
earthquake, as these crusts are
“Inasmuch as no scientific re
ports of the disaster have been
told as yet, and as I have never
been to New Zealand, I cannot give
any definite reasons for it. The
whole western Pacific is subject
to the slippings of the earth crust
along the ocean.’’

three examinations on one
day during final examination
week at the end of last term
