The management of the Emerald
changes with this issue. Mr. Rob
erts, owing to a heavy schedule, has
resigned and Wendell Barbour has
been elected by the executive commit
tee to fill the vacancy, with the un
derstanding that he and the editor are
to divide all the profits the Emerald
may be made to realize.
The Emerald, as near as can be
ascertained, is actually $200 in debt,
and the salaries for the first semester
have not yet been made. Whether
or not this debt can be liquidated in
the short time remaining, remains to
be seen. Mr. Barbour has had much
experience in managing, having
had charge, one time or another, of
nearly every enterprise in the Eugene
High School, when a “preper,” as well
as managing last year’s Oregana, the
track team and junior week-end in the
University; he takes hold of the work
with a determination to make good,
and if the Emerald does not stand on
its own feet at the end of the year, it
will be because it cannot do so with

Plans will be formulated immed
iately for increasing the efficiency of
the advertising department; the mer
chants and business establishments
will be appealed to for support in
proportion to the student patronage
they receive, and the editor and man
ager will cooperate in an effort to
make the paper the real advertising
medium it should be.
Mr. Barbour has chosen ns his as
sistant, John Kelly, who worked un
der Barbour on last year’s Oregana,
and made a new record for securing
advertising. With these two veterans
ahold of the financial wheel of the

This record might also give some

work being done at the University,
as compared with other Oregon in
