On With the Dance
“Everyone is invited,” says the man
agement nf die student dances, and it
is to he hoped that everyone in college
will be present.
With the exception of a few whose
principles forbid participation, every
student owes it to himself, for an even
ing can hardly be invested to better
advantage. Indeed, there are few en
terprises capable of playing a larger or
more important part in student life
than are such affairs when properly
supported and managed.
I he Emerald is not desirous of any
ethical controversies, and does not favor
the parties for the sake of dancing, but
because of their influence for sociability
and good fellowship. Blind man’s buff,
ttiddledy winks, or hop scotch, would
serve quite as well, were any of these
games as widely popular an amusement
as is dancing. I he executive committee
\\ isely chose dancing, because it is one
ol the best social solvents for breaking
the ice and for getting numbers of young

invaluable opportunity for cultivating
and training our social sense. Neglect
o! the social life is as culpable as neg
lect of the intellectual life, and the col
lege graduate who has never learned
to carry on a conversation, or to re
gard the small conventions of life, is
no more prepared for a career than the
polished know nothing. Man is a gre
garious, animal, and the world is es
senti llx a social organization, wherein
the boor is a hopeless misfit. Lord
Uieshrlicld was particular that his son

out, brace up, and learn to dance.
All should go next Saturday. Secure
some fascinating co-ed, and dance for
the sheer joy of being alive and young.
Determine to have a good time, and you
will. If the floor is sticky, or your
partner awkward, forget it and smile.
Let joy be unconfined.
In these days of the sane Fourth, the
Initiative and Referendum and revised
football, the good old observance of
Hallowe’en is sadly out of place. Time
was, when as youngsters, we stole gates,
overturned wood piles and destroyed
property to our hearts’ content, but be
ing college boys in a referendum state
has peculiar and awful responsibilities.
Every action is fraught with lurking
dangers and unexpected consequences.
We live in perpetual fear of some prank
being “played up” with a caustic edi
torial from the city papers, holding us
up for the scorn and censure of the
all powerful people.
No, the observance of Hallowe’en is
necessarily changing, and however much
we may prefer the old time ceremonies,
it is hoped that none of us will forget
we attend an unendowed college in a
referendum state. We must be refined
and genteel in observing Hallowe’en
this year, and for the sake of the deli
cate sensibilities of the grangers, tick
tacking of professors’ windows must be
the limit of roughness.
News letter from the O. A. C. Pub
licity Department: Hazing has been
abolished at Oregon Agricultural Col
lege, and in place of the horrors await
ing the timid freshmen, he is welcomed
with open arms and protected and guid
ed by the upperclassmen.
As several of the timid freshmen were
given free hair cuts, the news bulletin
might more appropriately have said,
“welcomed with open arms and open
shears.” Nine-tenths of the grangers
who read the O. A. C. letter in the
country papers will not see the account
of the hazing incident and will rejoice
in the bold, righteous stand of the O.
A. C. on the hazing question.

Whether or not we oi*ee with them,

the courage of their convictions and are

in what the\ regard as a good cause.
We should be proud of Captain Tay
