“Along with the intense rivalry that has always existed between
the University of Oregon and Oregon State college, there has been
an unfathomable difference in attitude or belief. This difference,
whatever it may be, occasionally leads to a comparable event or
incident for the two schools.
“A marked contrast on the war effort has been noted, and was
brought to a head with the recent Oregon homecoming. Oregon State
has been striving to cut down on non-essential items, while from most
reports it seems that the Southern branch is striving to carry on in
its usual superfluous way. In order to cut down on cost and wasted
time this campus has eliminated homecoming signs, limited decora
tions for dances and other affairs, engaged the most easily obtainable
orchestras for dances, cut down its intramural program, done away
with the rook bonfire, and generally arranged its program on a new
theme. Undoubtedly the university has helped the war effort in some
"ays, but at the same time it has been trying to carry on its usual
life with the war effort only as an extra activity. Homecoming, a
typical example, saw house signs and an expensive orchestra at Ore
gon. There was little effort to conserve money or time.
“For years some people have been trying to explain the differ
ence between the two schools and the reason for the difference, but
so far no one has succeeded. Some say it is the courses, others the
class of students. It might even be accredited to the climate. All we
know is that there is some difference in the attitude which occa
sionally leads to such marked contrasts as are evidenced iii the war
effort."—OREGON STATE BAROMETER.

A s VOUR alumni and our alumni die together in our United States fighting fortes, \vc give you
this answer, Glen Schaeffer, editor of Oregrn State's Barometer:
Our women have rolled 1780 bandages for R?d Cross, spending an average of four hours a
week. Sewing units have finished 35 utility bags, 15 surgical gowns, and 30 miscellaneous items.
\\ hat hat e your coeds done ?
We already have given 90 pints of blood for wounded or dying soldiers, sailors, and marines.
This drive is just starting, limited by local facilities which cannot handle large numbers of stud
ents. But a few each day are taken. How many have you given.
ARE going to provide scholarships for our servicemen who return after the war. Are
you? We have given 2,002 packs of cigarettes for servicemen in one campus drive? How
many have you given?
Oirr students, alumni, and townspeople gave 3000 pennies and additional, silver totalling $80
to buy a gold star service flag for our school—a reminder of our alumni who have died in the
war. Have you done the same?
We are sending our alumni magazine to fighting forces overseas. Are you?
AUR LIVING organizations have given 350 magazines and books for the local USO? What
have you done? \ou say we had a big dan -e for Homecoming and imply that it took many
hours of student time? Did you know that no students worked on that dance? That there were
no decorations? Did you know that no students or their time were involved in arranging a
Homecoming orchestra ?
Yes< "e HAD Homecoming signs—to “Keep the Home Fires Burning,” for those alums who
couldn’t make it back because they were fighting as well as for those who could make it
in this war year. Did you know that costs on tlnse signs were cut in half this year, that time
put in was cut, that signs were less elaborate than ever before?
Number of all-campus dances has been cut almost in half this year. Our war-time dances’are
put on by a maximum of 10 committee workers now. Homecoming last year had a committee of
near 100. This year less than one-fifth that number put it over.
XYe HAVEN'T tried to cut our intramurals—if anything they should be increased in line with
our mass physical education program for all men ... a program closely allied to the navy’s
physical fitness plan.
Many of these figures are not staggering totals—yet. Our campus drives are just starting.
They are spread over many different fronts. B it each represents a start in the right direction.
They are lines of attack where we are trying to help in the war effort.

JT Ar be 11 from us at Oregon to find fault with your war efforts. We heard your announce
ment at one Portland football game. Mose of yo;:r student body went on the 250-mile roundtrip,
but you said you cooperated with war transportation shortages by leaving your band at home.
5 es, we heard this, but we pass it over now. We pass over that and other similar instances.
Because >ou see, Mr. Schaeffer, this war is a whole lot bigger than our school rivalry. To win
it we all must do the best we can—together—to win. Hitler likes to see us fighting among our
selves. He likes capital to say labor isn’t doing its full share for the war just as much as ho
likes to see you poke scorn at our efforts.
1011 see, school rivalry has its good points—but when we’re in a war as a United Nation,
it’s little good to fight each other. We at the University of Oregon are out to sec that the entire
United States wins this war. We are making what sacrifices we can now. Our men are waiting
to make more as our government can handle th?m in fighting forces. We’re glad to see your
progra mis functioning.
We haven’t had much time to pick apart the set-up on another campus. We’re pretty busy
organizing our own home defense units.
