THE CO-ED ISSUE.
For the last four years it has been
customary to turn one issue of the
Emerald over to the women of the
University who forthwith published
without the aid of the masculine
element, a co-ed issue of the paper.
For the past two years this number
was published in February, but last
year an ambitious staff inaugurated
the custom of making it a “Junior
Week End Issue.” Of course this
means extra work for the staff, but
the scope of the paper is so much
broadened thereby that this year’s
Co-ed Emerald staff felt that it
ought to continue the custom estab
lished last year. We realize that
although our paper is larger than the
ordinary issues and is thus able to
cover a greater number of general
college interests, it nevertheless suf
fers from the loss of the regular staff
and somewhat from inexperience.
With this apology we extend “Our
Issue” and hope that it will be to its
readers a worthy souvenir of this
This Week End the hospitality of
Oregon is being extended to hundreds
of guests from all over the State,
and the Eemerald bids them welcome
on behalf of the faculty and student
body, and hopes that their visit may
be a most enjoyable one. We are
particularly interested in the students
from the various preparatory schools
and hope to enroll many of them as
students of Oregon next year or the
The attendance at last night’s
Junior Orations was something of
which the University students should
be heartily ashamed. We hear so
much about “Oregon Spirit,” and we
all try to display it at a ball game,
but unless we support the institution
in some line in addition to athletics,
we have not done our duty. If
Junor Orations are worth while,
which most of us would probably
admit, then assuredly they should lie
It seems that after a number of
students have worked for a few weeks
preparing an oration, the least that
we can do is to be present at its
deliverance. Have you ever thought
about how you would feel if obliged
to give an oration to twenty people
and five hundred vacant seats?
COMM EN ('EM ENT.
Everyone who has ever witnessed
Commencement at Oregon, pronounces
it one of the most enjoyable and
profitable occasions of the entire
school year. Some of the most in
teresting affairs are, the president’s
reception; the Failing and Beckman
orations: the Senior dance, Alumni
supper, the Baccalaureate sermon,
and the Fern and Flower procession;
The music under the direction of
Professor Glen is always excellent
and yet how many iff you Sophomores
and Juniors and even Seniors, have
ever stayed for Commencement?
When examinations are over there
is always a great temptation to hurry
home as fast as possible. If we
think of Commencement at all it is
usually as an affair which is of im
portance only to the Seniors and per
haps to a few Juinors who might like
to stay to observe just what gradua
tion means so as to know what to do
when their turn comes. The Fresh
men are told that underclassmen
never stay for Commencement.
There are to be a number of addi
tions to the regular schedule of
events this year. One which promises
to be extremely beautiful is the
Dancing Festival which Dr. Stuart is
arranging. Assuredly it will be worth
So let each and every one of us
make every effort to remain for Com
mencement this year, and to persuade
everybody else to do likewise.
THE YELL LEADER.
We all know what a factor the yell j
leader is in the concoction of college
spirit, we know how important good
rooting really is to athletic success;
and yet after the football season is
over we all proceed to forget all of
this until the beginning of the follow
ing year, when the “powers that be”
seek frantically for the right person
and that person in turn racks his
brain for schemes of which he might
have been thinking for three months
Why not elect the yell leader near
the end of each school year, just as
we elect a Glee club leader or any
other college officer? It is a matter
which should be handled exclusively
by the “rooters” who could select
from their midst some one who had
shown particular aptitude while as
sisting the leader at rallies. This
would accomplish the two-fold pur
pose of doing away with the frantic
rush for a leader at the first of each
year, and of giving the leader him
self time to plan his work.
During the past two weeks there
has been a great deal of discussion
relative to the manner of electing
the Queen of the Canoe Carnival.
There has been general dissatisfac
tion with the method employed this
year. Although it yielded much
needed revenue to the committee ex
chequer, nevertheless it worked hard
ship on the loyal supporters of the
various candidates. Since the car
nival is managed by the Juniors, why
not allow the class to choose one of
its members queen?
Each class in turn would have the
privelege, and the financial side could
be cared for in some other way.
H. J. Parkinson’s attack on the
University and accusations against
President Campbell have created a
great deal of indignation amongst
the university students, who feel ab
solute confidence in the head of their
institution and greatly incensed at
A lady walking along ’Thirteenth
street from Pattersons to the Univer
sity noticed that there seemed to be
more paper to the square inch along
that street than anywhere else in
town. “Why, you can’t walk a block
without seeing ‘Wrigley’s Spearmint
Hum,’ oi- ‘Hershey’s Chocolate’ staring
at ’you in fanciful design.” When
we rush to the Thirteenth street
store between or after classes to buy
candy or fruit, we scarcely think of
what we do with the wrappers or
peelings. But just take a walk
some day with that in mind, and see
what a multitude of papers we do
throw on the street.
The right kind of punishment is
that which is in direct proportion to
the crime which called it forth. And
if is must vary at all it is better that
it be on the side of leniency. A
prank is rather a harmless thing and
though some punishment is probably
necessary, one’s sense of justice cries
out against anything too stringent.
This is the feeling which seems to
prevail on the campus in regard to
the two boys who managed to be
present at the April Frolic. The
thing was done in a spirit of fun.
and the Co-eds regard it as such.
The staff wishes to express its ap
preciation to the many girls, who,
though not on the staff, have aided
materially by writing many interest
