The “fighting spirit” of some of the visiting servicemen at Sat
urday’s game was displayed in such a manner that we are sure
a separate section should be reserved for them.
At the start of the game, servicemen who had no connection
with Oregon were seated in a separate section. Later they veie
allowed to fill in -the empty rows in the student section.
Servicemen have an admirable habit of cheering for the op
posing team or the losing team. They cheered for Oregon at
Seattle and last year at Oregon State. We expect and like them
to form a rooting section for the opposing team because ve like
.-a little competition' in the yelling.
However, one or two of the servicemen at Saturday s game
went out of the way to be objectionable. We didn’t think that
throwing a bottle out on the turf was strictly humorous: And
we didn’t think the particular type of showmanship exhibited by
one serviceman was-fttrictly humorous.
Perhaps designating a separate section apart from the stu
dents seems unfair. Only a few of them act objectionably, and
we shouldn’t blame them as a group for tire conduct of those few.
But we can almost count on having one or two guests who
insist on giving impromtu entertainment if they are in a promi
nent position. 1 heir actions embarass and often piovoke the stu
dents as well as other spectators.
Student conduct at games may sometimes cast a bad light on
Oregon, but we can at least try to prevent others from antagoniz
ing the students with childish actions.
All servicemen are welcome at Oregon games, but we expect
them to observe the rules of good taste just as much as we expect
the Ducks to treat them as guests. Our guests formerly had their
own section at games. There should be no exception for service
men wlin are not alums or former students.

Officially it’s the student directory, but to Webfoots who daily
dog-car its pages throughout the year the publication is known as
the “Pigger’s Guide." And it belongs to Oregon as much as does
the Emerald, the Oregana, or the newly-rejuvenated Old Oregon.
Containing the location v hys-and-w herefores of every stu
dent and faculty member on the campus and off, the bigger s
('.uidc is more important than its cardboard cover would sug
gest. This war’s guide is edited by Jack Craig and will list tradi
tions, officers of the various organizations, heads of departments,
and the names, campus and home addresses, telepluflie numbers,
majors and wars of members of the student body. 1 he all-impor
tant asterisk will indicate the marital status of individuals.
Information within the pages of the I'igger s (uiide is secured
from the records of the. registrar s office. Students whose addres
ses have changed since registration should notify this office im
mediatelv as to their permanent location. The Guide will go to
press within the next two weeks—ample time for transient
Webfoots to insure an accurate footprint in the Oregon sands
of time—the annual bigger’s Guide.
CUeete jpsi the Squad . . .
Cheers to the rally squad for their enthusiasm and ability in
leading' the Oregon rooting section Saturday.
With oply one week to practice and prepare their yells, the
rally squad made a good appearance at the game. \\ hile those
in the stands were merely warm in the shade, the squad mem
'ber had to cut their capers in the glaring sunlight. Their white
outfits came out slightly grayer after an afternoon in the track

The squad started their sendee with a bang last week—rallies
Sunday .and Friday and the game Saturday. Many of them have
never led Oregon cheering sections before. They deserve the
well-known Split Six for a good job.

Telling the Editor
Dear Editor: I have seen many
football games, but at none of
them have I seen such unsports
manlike attitudes as were dis
played at the game Saturday.
It was disgraceful! I know that
it was none of the University stu
dents who were booing and hoot
ing throughout the game. I would
be ashamed to admit I was a stu
dent of this school if it were.
But, nevertheless, there were
some individuals who were very
ignorant of the etiquette of sports.
Such behavior is inexcusable. Can
not something be done about peo
ple who insist upon booing during
the games ?
