Hero \vc are back again on the same old beat.
During our vacation we were surprised by the good news of
\ -J Day, thus insuring the football and the regular pre-war
athletic set-up. *
A great many students were wondering if they were going
to graduate without seeing a football game or ahv kind of the
big' rallies and festivities associated with King Football.
Now that the King of Sports has returned to the campus
we can also expect the return of many of the old traditions that
faded into the background with the coming of the war. With
victory came the return to a peace time sports basis.
\\ hen we have our rallies we will be expecting to see you all
out there giving the team your best support. It takes lots of
enthusiasm and pep to show the fellows that thev are lighting
in the right direction.
\\ ith our return to peace time enrollment we should have
rallies and a cheering section that will surpass anv of the pre
war efforts that Oregon produced. We of this department will
expect to see you all out for the home games and reallv put
your heart into the rallies and cheering.
In succeeding issues of the Kmcrald, we ll be able to give
you a preview of what to expect from the varsitv squad this
year. Their first conference game pits them against the ex
perienced \\ ashington Huskies in Seattle next Saturdav.
