Year After Year They Come Back
■yyiTII the advent of another annual Home
coming, and with it the turning of an
other milestone in the history of a great
school, the University again finds itself wel
coming to its heart those who have gone be
fore the present undergraduate crop into the
world. That the welcome will be a hearty one
and sincere goes without saying.
For those who return this year, it might
be pointed out that they picked a good year.
Seldom has a Homecoming attracted so much
campus and state interest; and it has been a
long time since a Homecoming football game
hit a full holiday on which to he played.
Visitors will find the campus Ilomecoming
minded to the last soul.
In considering an event such as Home
coming there is a problem in choosing what
to say which would not be true of any Home
coming. Welcome is taken for granted; that
is part of it. That the school has come a long
way is to be expected. What the state thinks
about the football game is evident in the
way McArthur court ticket office has been
swamped with orders.
* « #
thing which might be pointed out now
is that it is definitely good, for both sides
of the equation, to have this contact of differ
ent worlds. l’artieularly seniors, among under
graduates, will find this injection of outside
ideas beneficial. At the same time those re
turning will gather material for a clearer
picture of what is going on here and a better
conception of tlie problems at hand. And it is
good to be back — a warm feeling of be
lieturning alumni, especially if they have
been out of school for some time, find them
selves in a rather odd and little-realized posi
tion. They find, according to some of their
own statements, that what they were when
they were in school has been forgotten. They
find themselves alone in a crowd. They are
faced with reality after idealizing the high
spots of their college careers in memory.
* * #
gl'T they return just as loyal as ever,
enthusiastic as any freshman, ready to
make up for lost time in doing what there is
to do and learning what they have missed.
Undergraduates can learn much from watch
ing the alums come back to the alma mater.
For a case in point, watch them sing “Mighty
Oregon’’ again—full loud and clear, it leaves
a lasting impression.
That the weekend will be crowded is evi
dent—no one will ever be able to do every
thing he would like to jam into the program.
Naturally what is desirable is for this year
to be the greatest over.
The welcome having been disposed of, the
mutual benefit pointed out, about all there
is left is to hope for those returning that those
idealized memories will be lived up to in real
ity here in these short days. It’s a large order,
but fine machinery is primed and ready.

By JACK BUKER
Putting the blame of defec
tive world politics on one na
tion or race of people is an
easy out for the hasty observ
It is just as foolish to pin ;
the cause of trouble to any sin
gle incident or quirk in the
trend of our times.
Human nature on the job
with her usual 50 per cent of
bad behavior always turns out
to be the cause of wars or any
other form of disorder.
Human Nature Cause
Therefore, if we understand
the ingrained peculiarities that
are bred into the peoples of
conflicting nations, we should
by theory understand their be
havior and propresy their ac
Conclusions gathered by
such reasoning are not highly
complimentary to anyone, es- J
pecially the British.
Europe seems to be about :
fed up with Briton's tea-time
imperialism, and coarse tweeds,
old pipes, English brogue, no
longer have the same effect on
the continent as they have
among our college age youth.
England’s record of land
grabbing makes Hitler’s policy
look silly, and her sharp
shooter methods of internation
al intrigue scare even the
smooth Frenchman when a
conference takes place.
It is the nature of an Eng
lishman to play ball with the
right people, and his strenuous
methods of keeping up appear
ances has been almost success
ful in hiding a “back to the
wall” spirit that has won most
of her battles whether above or
It is not strange, therefore,
that many people in this coun
try are outspoken about a de

out of that “four flusher,” t
Germany is not such a dif
ficult problem to the student
of diuman nature. Her out
standing characteristic is a ba
sic mysticism that is not as
matter of fact as that of the
Japanese, yet still provides the
German with enough couraye
to secretly believe lie belongs
to a superior race.
Also like Japan, Germany is
a military nation, with a long
list of uprisings comparable to
the present one. Her vitality |
prevents suppression, but the
combination of a mystic per
sonality and a militaristic char
acter prevents her from win
ning for long, and, as England,
making wrong into right.
No one has been able to j
change human nature as yet,
and few institutions, except re- j
ligion, have ever altered its
course. Some of our senators
claim the distinction of having
a solution to trouble in gener- j
al, but some smart guy tacks |
a "raise in pay rider" on the |
bill and the house puts us back
into the dark ages again.
Either OSC has reformed or the
freshmen's strategy last night
