The Editor Is Materially Minded.
The editor announces that he is con
templating introducing an amendment
to the student body by-laws relative
to salaries connected with the editor
and manager of the Emerald. The
law at present provides for a salary
of $100 a year for the Editor, and
$7f> for the Manager, to be paid from
the profits of the paper, if there are
Now this law is clearly unjust to
the editor, who must devote about
four days of each week to the paper,
besides three other days of thought
over it. He has nothing to do with
the paper paying for itself or not pay
ing for itself. The manager is elect
ed by the students the same as the
editor is, and is independent of the
editor. The manager has entire
charge of the financial end of affairs,
and the paper pays for itself in pro
portion to the amount of time, energy
and ability he puts into his work. The
editor, however, has his work to do for
each issue. There is no slighting it,
nor putting it off until another time;
he must simply be on the job all the
time, and under the present regime he
is paid for all of this according to
the inclination of a manager over
whom he has no direct control.
The Emerald is not paying for it
self this year, has not all year, and
probably will not during tin1 remainder
id' the year; but the editor and his as
sociates have been just as energetic
as any previous to them, and are prob
ably just as deserving id' a little ma
terial remuneration as their produces
The editor, in introducing this
amendment, does not claim to be
thinking of any one but himself and
his successors. No ultimates enter
into his reasoning, and the good ot the
common people, etc., is as far from
his thought as a desire to edit the
Emerald another semester is distant
from his desires, lie makes a straight
forward plea to the student body tor
something he thinks is coming to him,
and makes no attempt to hide his real
The amendment will probably read
something like this: the Editor ot
the Emerald shall receive Sad a se
mcstoi for his services out ot the
profits id- the paper, it there are any,
but if the profits are not sufficient to
pa\ him the full amount, the re
mainder shall be paid out ot the gen
oral student body funds. Ibis pro
vision shall apply to the present edi
tor The manager of the Emerald
shall receive $75 for his services for
the year out of the profits of the
Emerald remaining after the editor
has been paid his salary.
