OUR TEAM, RIGHT OR WRONG!
“My country! May she .... ever be in
the right, but my country, right or wrong.”
— Stephan Decatur.
TAOWN through the years ring Lieutenant Deca
tur’s stirring words. Often has their dema
gogic appeal been scoffed at; still more often have
they been referred to as the theory which under
lines war. But appropriate indeed to a situation
that confronts us .of the University is the phrase
Originated by the hero of the Barbary war more
than 100 years ago.
We have a football team here at Oregon. It
has not been as successful as pre-season prognosti
cations predicted it would be. In two conference
starts it has been tied once and beaten once. Vic
tory was virtually within its grasp at Portland
Saturday, but an 11th hour pass thwarted it on the
threshhold of glory.
Largely because of this episode, the student
body's interest and confidence in the team has
waned. Why, it is difficult to say. The team has
done nothing to be ashamed of; it tied a great
Washington eleven; it bowed to a courageous U. C.
L. A. team whose fighting finish was unparalleled
in conference annals.
Cannot we be big enough to rise up and say:
“Our team, right or wrong!” Whether Oregon
wins or loses, ii. still is our team and it is incumbent
upon us to support it.
Hi Hi H<
Don’t make the mistake of thinking Oregon is
through. There is yet Oregon State to beat. South
ern California and St. Mary's loom upon the hori
Young Coach Callison is putting all his knowl
edge and efforts into the building of a successful
team. Now, in an hour of adversity, it is no time
tor the student body to withdraw its support. Any
body can kick a man when lie’s down. Surely
the Oregon students are not fair-weather friends.
They must have the fortitude and courage to stand
by in the face of defeat.
To date the football season can hardly be called
an absolute failure. The team has given a good
account of itself in botli its conference games. Re
sponsible for much of the gloom that now exists is
the fact that an unjust number of victories was
expected of Coach Callison prior to the start of the
:!l :k* si:
Lung before the autumn campaign started,
those interested and in charge of football here
and this does not include Coach Callison dispar
aged the endeavors of Dr. Clarence W. Spears and
pointed to Callison as a successor who would ex
cell the famous doctor. It was a tragic blunder and
led people to believe Oregon was a coming cham
To have placed such a measuring stick as Doc
Spears' success beside a young coach in his first
season was little short of criminal. C. VV. Spears
is a great football coach. Denial of that fact is
futile. Why, tin'll, demand a new coach to equal or
excell his efforts?
We believe that Coach Callison has not been a
failure to date this season. To say he has not suc
ceeded because lie has not matched Doc Spears'
splendid record is ridiculous. The only persons
who deplore Callison's work are those who have
been led to believe he would do better than Spears.
Never has Prink Callison himself claimed he
would overshadow Doc Spears. He is too shrewd
a man and coach to do that. The zealots who pre
dicted championship attainments of Callison in his
lirst season undoubtedly meant well and thought
they were helping the coach, but they placed an
additional and unjust obligation upon him.
* » »
So let us just consider Prink Callison as one of
us, as Oregon’s first alumnus coach in to years,
and let us forget that bo is the successor of the
great Dr. Spears. We will benefit both ourselves
and the coach to look upon the season's results
lo date us highly satisfactory, lie must bo giveg
a chance, and the Emerald is sure tie will succeed.
Home wasn't built in a day. and neither are good
football teams. Dr. Spears has been a football
coach since lie became head of Dartmouth's force:
at the age of 22. Long years.of experience lie back
of his admirable record.
So let us definitely align ourselves in support
of Coach Callison, and let us remember that his
team is our foam, and that it is "Our team, right
He is only fantastical that is not in fashion—

DR. KERR GOES TO BAT
GONE by this time must be any doubts that ever
existed as to the sincerity of purpose of Dr.
William Jasper Kerr, Oregon’s new chancellor of
higher education. The chancellor has shown him
self to be an executive who understands the troubles
of his students and the problems of his state. His
efforts at the meeting of the state board in Port
land Monday proved that, conclusively.
Dr. Kerr went squarely before the board and
recommended that the anti-automobile legislation
of last spring be modified. In so doing, he. showed
the students of every higher educational institu
tion in the state that he realized what their atti
tude on the ruling was, and that he was eager to
act in good faith with them.
The editor of this paper was at the board session
for a few brief moments and is aware of the time
and efforts Dr. Kerr put forth on the students’
behalf in this matter. When you see a student,
drive an automobile today, you can rest assured he
is privileged to do so largely through the endeavor
of Dr. William Jasper Kerr.
The chancellor also showed that he realized the
financial distress and economic plight of the state’s
citizenry when he said no further appropriations
would be asked of the 1932-33 legislature. In strug
gling along on the amount allotted in the old
budget, Dr. Kerr is taking an additional burden
upon himself. It is far easier to expand and in
crease than to cut to the bone and economize.
Commendable indeed have been Dr. Kerr's ac
tions since he was appointed chancellor. He is de
serving of the confidence and cooperation of the
OUR NEW LAWYERS
rPHE 24 law school graduates who passed the
state bar examinations are to be congratulated
on their achievements. They can be justly proud
of their accomplishment. It is a real trust that the
state of Oregon has given these young lawyers. We
are confident that the graduates of our school of
law will not violate that trust, that all of them
are worthy of the trust that has been bestowed
upon them by the commonwealth.
But not only do we commend the students for
passing the examination, but also we feel that much
of the honor should be given to the dean of the
school, his associates in the faculty, and to those
pioneers in the field of legal education who founded
the University of Oregon school of law and their
successors who have carried on the work in the
past. It would be unjust, in praising the excellent
work of the present faculty, to forget the high
standards previously established by their predeces
sors, the many volumes of legal works given by
friends of the law school in the past that have built
up such a fine legal library, and the many other
things that friends of the school have done.
Of the 29 Oregon students taking the examina
tion this year, only 4 failed to pass. This per
centage was very small in comparison with the
entire class, and is larger than that of Stanford
law graduates who passed the California bar exami
nations* Without forgetting the honor due to the
past, we feel that special honor should be given to
Dean Morse and his associates in the law school
faculty, for it is their ability and their broad scope
of vision that has really been reflected in the out
come of the bar examinations.
GET BUSY, RALLY COMMITTEE
'T'O DATE this season the football rallies have
been far short of satisfactory. Blame for this
must be placed somewhere. Certain is it that either
the rally committee or the student body in gen
eral is at fault. The responsibility naturally must
be delegated to the committee, since it is that
group’s job to incite the students to participate in
the welcomes and send-offs for the team.
The Emerald does not take the attitude that the
team is going to play any better football or score
any more touchdowns because 500 or 1,000 students
shout ’’Boomalatcha, boomalatcha, boom! boom!
boom!” before the engineer of its train pulls down
the throttle. This paper merely contends that a
certain amount of organized enthusiasm is neces
sary to instill a pioper morale and spirit into both
the team and student body.
When the eleven left Eugene for the U. C. L. A.
battle at Portland, there wasn't a corporal's guard
at the station to herald its departure. The uni
formed band straggled onto the train. It did no
playing. Not a dozen students were present. There
was the old faithful of the townspeople Del Stan
ard, Beldon Babb, a few others.
Col. Bill Hayward exchanged a few remarks
with those on the platform, the players boarded the
train silently, the big engine whistled twice, the
drivers spun on the rails, and the team was off
for its second conference game of the year.
When the players returned battered, weary in
both body and spirit, the victims of a dashing
Frank Merriwell finish of the Bruins there was
no rally to greet them.
This situation must be remedied. Not to be
forgotten is the splendid display of spirit last au
tumn when a throng of 500 welcomed the team
upon its return from Los Angeles, where it was
overwhelmed 53 to 0 by U. S. C.
It is incumbent upon the rally committee to
get busy at once. The team goes to Idaho this
week-end. Part of the assembly tomorrow should
be devoted to the game. There should be a rally
at the train to send the Webfoots on their way.
There is ample time for the committee to make
preparations for both events.
A SORORITY LIBRARY
•'■MIL SORORITY library is about to become a
reality on the Oregon campus. This library,
in addition to the time-honored collection of exami
nation papers, term theses, and defunct text books
will consist in most cases of a shelf of standard
reference works, and volumes of good fiction. Some
women's organizations already have such libraries,
but most of them are starting this year. The need
for a well rounded library is felt in every living
Reliable reference books that may be consulted
at any time during home study hours speed up work
and supplement ailing themes that otherwise would
do without such information. Good fiction avail
able exactly when the mood and moment demand
