The Suggested Resolution and Athletics While the form of the resolution that Professor Young intends to introduce before the faculty is as yet unknown, the real intentions of those who are be hind the movement uncertain, and the attitude of the faculty in regard to the proposed mystery, it is hardly worth while to waste words discussing the mat ter. However, there may be nothing lost in making a few speculations. Our attitude is not antagonistic. If these resolutions read as they may read and mean what they may mean, there may he much good in them. We appreciate the desirability of extending athletics to the remotest parts of the student body. , But as things now stand, these reso lutions may he intended for anything, from nothing at all to abolishing inter collegiate athletics altogether. And, moreover, likewise they can he so word ed as to mean anything between the same two extreme^. We would therefore plead lirst and above all things that they he worded simply and directly, stating without the usual confusing technical wordiness exactly what is intended. In the second place, we would sug gest that they be constructive rather than destructive. Every student should he stimulated to athletic competition. If this is the true intention of the pro posed resolution, then it can not limit athletics, and all fear of such a result is unfounded. To limit intercollegiate sports is not in the least to increase in tracollegiate sports. In fact, it is rather t;> discourage them as valuable acces sories in the way of stepping stones for raw material to gain experience for the Varsity team. In any case, a limitation of intercol legiate sports is not desirable. Granted that athletics are overdeveloped. Granted that they lower student efficiency and .are false to the intentions and desires oi the originators and supporters. Yet they are so inextricably interwoven with all that is dearest and most inspiring in college life, they have so great a part in producing one of the greatest products of our age that quality of spirit and habit of bearing which has come to be typical essentially of only what we term, perhaps for want of any abstract ad jective, the “college man"—that their eradication would most seriously lowvi the final sum total of efficiency m tin* \merican University. Trade In Eugene It is strange tint students should wait until they go home for the holidays to do their spring shopping. Eugene mer chants are enterprising, moderate, and above all they arc, with a few exceptions, loyal to the University. WLty not give I them the benefit of our pat nonage? The merchants of Eugene support the Emerald, not because it brings them ini- j mediate returns, but because it is a Varsity enterprise and they are recom pensed indirectly through the trade of University students. We would ask, therefore, that the students, whenever possible, would trade in Eugene and al ways with Emerald advertisers. There is little encouragement for business men ijo help us if we do not distinguish be tween them and the ones who do not help us. Help the Emerald by patroniz ing our advertisers. Rhinehart will make good all right. Yesterday was his first game, and he could not be blamed for getting nerv ous. A little more experience when there is less at stake will bring-him out.

GISH PROTEST ACTION STIRS UP CRITICISM Washington Said to Have Violat ed Conference Rules In Mak ing Matter Public. Considerable discussion and criticism lias liccn aroused by the action of the University of Washington authorities in violating the conference agreement and projecting the dish eligibility mat ter before the public in the newspapers. Some time ago Trainer Hayward wrote to Manager Zednick, of Washing ton, stating that there had been some question as to the amateur standing of Brailey dish, the star point winner of the Seattle institution, and asking that an investigation be made. Contrary to the conference rule forbidding • it, the Washington manager immediatelly made the matter public, and the Washington faculty, instead of investigating the eli gibility question, passed it up on the technical ground that the protest con tained no definite charges. Mr. Hayward says that he was simply giving them a chance to look up Gish's record, and he fails to see how the manner of protesting can affect the na ture of his standing.

"The new gymnasium of the Univer sity of Oregon contains better equipment than that of Harvard,” was the state ment of E. E. House, a Harvard alum nus, after having carefully examined the new structure a few days ago. In speaking of it further, he said that although Harvard had a stone building, which contained more lockers, yet it did not contain nearly so complete and up-to-date equipment as that installed in Oregon's new gymnasium. The totai cost of the equipment as installed is $3,600, which consists of all kinds of apparatus for the develop ment of muscle. In the basement are thirty-six splendid showers and enough steel lockers to accommodate a student body much larger than is now enrolled. I he swimming pool, when finished, will be one of the best in the North west. Above the main floor is a track by means of which runners may keep in condition all winter. To the left of the main floor s the handball court, which is now ready tor use. The selection and arrangement of the equipment was dom by Trainer Hay ward after a careful - tudy of other gym nasiums. and shows conclusively that he is a premier all-around physical culture expert, as well as track trainer. The Sigma Xu fraternity house of the University of Missouri was recently robbed of $500 worth of jewelry, cloth ing and other valuables. THE C. E. SCOTT CO.
