have gone in preparing for this day, but the
sun came up per sehedule and the leaves con

autumn way. In fact nothing in nature indi
cated that some -40 million citizens would go
to the polls today and mark their choice for
the presidency of these United Stales.
Some say that this has been the most hard
fought campaign in the history of the nation.
Certainly it has broken at least two records:
party expenditures and 'the number of voters
registered. And on other scores it has been
remarkahie. New techniques fur the molding
of public opinion have brought lightning-fast,
ladies. Radio has been used as never before.
Telephoto has played a big ride. Rapid trans
portation has whipped candidates around the
country. The ordinary devices for news dis
semination have been geared up. lCveu the
phonograph, in the ease of Senator Vanden

campaign is that for the first time in re

popular opinion on those principles, a thing
which happens about once in a blue moon.
Again parties mean something.
Prink’s Passing Show
'T'llKRK was plent\ of do or die spirit on
Multnomah field Saturday afternoon.
There was the element of surprise, injected
when Coach Prince Gary Callison sent a
couple of unknown sophomores into tho
lineup and thereby put the forward pass back
into Oregon football.
Oregon didn’t win, but it wouldn’t be much
of a gamble to say that in the minds of the
3 1.000 paying customers, Ihe assembled stu
dent bodies of the two universities, and the
Portland poliee force. Oregon’s gridiron stock
has taken a decided upturn.

most effective passing combinations seen in
action o)i the coast this year. There were

and, again Gammon to Verby for 24. The
astonished crowd Went wild when, in less
than 4n minutes, Oregon completed more
passes than she did in the 1935 season and the
frist half of the ’36 combined.

Apparently Oregon crowds are ready for
more razzle-dazzle in their football—color,
not crunch. Apparently, also, Oallison and
his men are going to supply it.

sary adjunct, to professional care in the
maintenance of a clean campus. Cigarette
butts strewn thoughtlessly about the lawns,
sidewalks, and in the buildings, paper torn
into minute fragments and scattered to the
breezes, can make ugly the best of schools.
The students’ contribution is largely a
negative one. It consists in not destroying,
rather than in building up. If students do not
drop snipes on the campus, do not throw
papers or apple cores on the paths, the task
of the University workmen is made much
easier, and we can say to Dad next week

Courtesy to the visiting team is all right, but
not when the W ashington band steals the show.
First we started to have a “swing band," but

continues, "I’ll tell you what's

The piece goes on to list, among
others, such gripes as: we don't
want green lids, we don’t spank
frosh for smoking on campus, we
don’t have pajama parades, we
don’t have “good old rallies.”
And not only that, but “twenty
years ago we used to hate other
schools just for the joy of com
bat. Bring back that something
that makes the old boys get a
thrill and a tight feeling in their
throats whenever they hear
‘.Mighty Oregon,’ ” and such.
That’s not ail there is there ain’t
no more, but it will suffice.
pirst of all, there is such a thing
as becoming outmoded regard
ing some practices which might
have been alleged traditions. Green
hats we do wear, especially at foot
ball games and when it rains. The
allusion must have been to what
are called "dinks” in some quar
ters. Now the dink business was
long ago filed systematically in
the wastebasket in every univer
sity at which I have had' the pleas
ure of leaving my books around to
gather dust. Thi3 you may see
me about in my office.
As for spanking frosh for
smoking on campus, or for any
thing else for that matter, the
idea is to handle freshmen with
great care. And if they find
themselves spanked in public
their only reaction is hurray for
college and what swell publicity.
All this outside of the fact that
spanking them for anything
whatsoever is indeed a fruitless
measure and not what I have
been led to believe is spirit.
Pajama parades and “good old’’
rallies I'd like very much to leave
to their sweet slumber. In our
tcwr,the college boys used to have
pajamarinos and tremendous ral
lies but after a while somebody got
the idea that “spirit” should be
something more—“deeper” I think
was the word' than simply a ges
ture by which sophomores could
show off and freshmen could be
shown off. In short, it’s a lot of

'J’O be brief about this next one,
I saw entirely too many
"thrilled” old boys with that "tight”
feeling during the recent home
oming to appreciate that argu
ment, especially as one for bigger
and better spirit. If the “old
boys” can’t do better than that,
then we've ample school spirit.
Now about that twenty years
ago stuff, I’m sorely tempted to
come back with “that was twen
ty years ago,” but I won’t. In j
those dear dead days the idea !
was to “hate other schools just
for the joy of combat” apparent
tly (this I confess is right past
me), just as the idea today is
for everybody to hoot in to Port
land and forget. It’s all the
same emotion ami nobody means
a word of it nor ever will.
Frankly false emotionalism is
something which I am against. Itj
was responsible for all the “fire” i
shown by our noble doughboys at j
the time of the last war and it
may get the same credit again one
of these days. But there will be a

Spain for tin- nrvf war!
Here is a campaign in which
Paddock and Prescott may join
Do you remember this paragraph
from Remarque's “All Quiet on the
"Kropp on the other hand is a
thinker. He proposes that a dec- i
laration of war should be a kind ot '
popular festival with entrance tick- !
ets and bands, like a bull fight. ||
Then in the arena the ministers
and the generals of the countries
dressed in bathing drawers and I
armed with clubs, can have it out 1
among themselves. Whoever sur- 1
vivos, his country wins. That I
would be much simpler and more j
just than this arrangement, where I
the wrong people do the fighting.”

Today, we may not reasonably i
hope to carry out this admirable j
| plan as Kropp conceived it. Surely,
1 however, We may have some voice
in choosing our battlefield, if we
are to be burled thereon.. We “vet
erans of future wars” demand to
1m* humored in this respect at least.
Here is the case for Spain:
1. Who started this thing any
way? Well, maybe it would have
been better to ask where it started,
since Portugal is pointing fingers
at Russia and claiming that a lot
of Itchy Ivans did it all with their
2. Spain got out of the last war,
which ain’t justice. Any by the
cheerful abandon with which Span
iards are carving up their brothers
new it appears that Spain is bin
ding for bigger and better wars to
be held in their stadium.
3. Spain has a lot of nice scen
ery which it would be a pity for
Joe Jenkins from Iowa to miss.
France had ..something to offer
along that line too, but most of it
was burled in mud. Spain is pre
eminently noted for its sunshine
and beautiful girls, and Who does
n't like sunshine?
4. Spain, being a comparatively
barren country, has less popula
tion, less built up territory, and
fewer cathedrals than other Euro
pean nations. Pretty good scraps
could bo staged without damaging
the setting irreparably. We admit
that the motion picture moguls are
going to oppose this campaign of
ours from the start: without shat
tered spires as a background,
their’s will be feeble films.

Germany, Spain will drop out. Ger

it doesn’t have such good siesta

where he can lay full length in

We don’t want Spain to miss an
other really good war.
6. Things are cheaper in Spain. !

dinner bill, with 15 per cent for
