An End and a Beginning.
This is the last Emerald we will
publish this semester. The first issue
in the second semester will appear
Wednesday, February 14, 1912. We
thank the members of the staff for
their constant work and hearty co
operation during the past five months,
and we appreciate the interest the
public has displayed in the small
sheet we edit.
During the next semester we hope
to raise the standard of the Emerald,
to cover the campus news more thor
oughly, use better English in our
stories, and to be as discreet as pos
sible in tlu presentation of the con
Every member of the staff who de
sires it, may continue a member, and
all other students who wish to enter
the field of college journalism, will

Emerald. Our ambition to do so was
killed soon after school began, when
the manager reported that it would be
impossible to increase the size of the
advertising space, but we will put
up the present amount of space as best
we can and comfort ourselves with the
thought that things might be worse.
A Timely Remark.
Please may we have some clocks in
the Men’s Gymnasium; one in the
auditorium and one in the large dress
ing room? We don’t ask for really
and truly clocks with pendulums and
eight-day works, just lngersolls hung
on nails will serve the purpose. The
other day several of us who hate to
be tardy to any class, were five min
utes behind time getting to our reci
tation in Moreyouawefully, just be
cause we had no way of telling how
long we were swinging the dumbells,
and last night one of our most prom
inent students suddenly found himself
in total darkness, as he was in the
act of placing his tie pin in his new
purple cravat, simply because he did
not know it was so near six o’c’ock.
'Phis student informs us that if there
bad been a clock on the wall, he would
have known what time it was and
would have stuck his tie pin in his
new purple cravat before he put on
his shoes, because he can find his
shoes in any kind of light.
After all these foregoing and con
clusive proofs, we hope that the state
can find time to place some time on
the gym walls, so that we can always
be next to the time we spend in that
building. Ephriam Eps.
The idea of holding a Matinee dance
Saturday afternoon, February 10. in
the Men’s Gymnasium, is a good one,
we think. At last, we can see if we
really enjoy a truly informal dance
where neither men nor women appear
in their best clothes and at which
everyone mixes in a democratic man
ner. Miss Ruth Punway seems to
have originated the idea and predicts
that everyone will find it a pleasant
affair. There will be the usual five
piece orchestra, the floor will be put
in shape and the admission has been
made so low that even an editor can
attend. It is to be hoped that every
student in the University will avail
himself or herself of this opportunity
to mix in a general frolic with fellow
students, and help keep alive that
true democratic spirit for which Ore
gon has always been famous.
