Athletics And Students
Doubtless, the members of the fresh
man squad did not realize that they
jeopardized the interests of die Uni
versity when they allowed their college
work to lag.
Athletics, however, along with the
privileges they confer, impose heavy re
sponsibilities and duties upon the par
ticipants. One of these is the necessity
of keeping up, in good shape, the twelve
to sixteen hours of college work, it
addition to the twelve- or metre hour;
a week that athletics demand. Indeed
while the- general public feels as it does
towarel intercollegiate athletics, it it
highly important that athletes be hole
to especially strict account, for thcii
records are conspicuous anti any failure
in scholarship is readily seized upon bv
the cranks, always eager to discredi
colleges, and particularly athletics. It
this state these “reformers” are nttmer
ems and active. With intercollegiate
athletics it is a question of strict regu
lation or total abolition. It is often ar
guetl, that the Oregon faculty is overly
apprehensive of this elanger, and that it
puts the University at a great disacl
vantage athletically, by a too rigorous
insistence upon a high standard of
scholarship for athletes. And as a mat
ter of fact there are few conference col
geles that maintain a stricter supervis
ion over its athletes than does Oregon
Aside, howtever, from the abstracl
principle involved, strict regulation ol
athletes is the only means of allaying
the voters' suspicions, that they are pay

about our great athletes. As a rule, they
have also been excellent students, which
has etVeciively refuted the charge that
Oregon neglected studies for sports.
The freshmen must realize that Ore

from her athletes, and that to flunk

Trainer Hayward has written the O

Though May did not play football
last year, in these parts at least, he has
changed colleges, and it was exactly
such cases as his that the conference
rule was designed to cover. A bona
fide college student will not switch col
lege even year or so, and if a man
change, lie should not object to remain
ing out of athletics a year as evidence
: that studies, not athletics, caused his
change of heart.
Of course, conference rules have been
violated right and left the past two
years, and O. A. C. has doubtless been
handicapped athletically by its adherence
to the agreement.- 1 here is always the
temptation to strain the spirit of the
rules and to increase the chances for
a winning team. O. A. C. has so far
borne an excellent record in this respect,
but Mav is certainly ineligible, and why

SUCH ARE TRIALS OF
AN EMERALD REPORTER
To Robert Burns Powell, Esq.,
City Editor Emerald:
1 am sorry, hut I don’t think a story
on the student body dance worth while.
Besides, you gave the same thing to
Miss Degermirk. For two reasons,
such a story won’t go: (.1) By the time
the Emerald is out, everybody that is
going to the dance will be gone, hence
no use to urge them to go. (2) By the
time they read the Emerald, which will
be when they get back from the dance,
they will .already know about the floor,
programs, orchestra, etc., hence no use
telling them what you think it is going
to he like J4 hours before. If there is
, wilting else 1 can do, however, in
call up Main 71°' and tail nr and I’ll
be only too glad to do Pardon the

Dr. J. Schafer will speak on “Some

to treat the subject from an historical

which leadership is attained. Taking it
for granted that everyone desires to be
a leader, he hopes to arouse in eevry

Arrangement Especially Designed
For a Home
The Gamma Delta Gamma girls will
move into their new house next Wed
nesday. The contractor, who should
have finished the structure a week ago,
and who forfeits $10.00 a day for all
over time, is polishing and putting on
the finishing touches.
The house is located on East Thir
teenth street, near the Gamma Phi Beta
house, and is one of the most modern
houses in Eugene. It is different from
most club houses in that it was designed
primarily as a home.
The first floor contains the living room
dining room and hall, the arrangement
: being especially adapted to giving recep
tions and for dancing. On the sec
ond and third floors there are nine stu
dy rooms and a capacious sleeping
The wood work throughout is finished
in light oak, and the walls are tinted
in shades to harmonize. The floors are
of hard wood and polished. A large
and wide porch extends across the en
tire front of the house.
The Gamma girls are much pleasec
with the house, and are anxiously await
ing the word to move in. So far this
year they have had to room at private
houses about town. They have board
ed at the men’s dormitory.
