A couple of amendments to the by
laws of the Associated Students are
to be voted on next Wednesday morn
ing at assembly, and it is the duty of
every student to familiarize him, or
herself with the arguments for and
The first amendment relates to the
giving of Glee Club men, once during
their career in that club, gold block
“O’s,” with the words “Glee Club”
engraved on the face of the 0.
The Glee Club men feel that they
represent a legitimate varsity activ
ity, places on which are as keenly
contested as any other activity, and
perform sufficient and valuable serv
ice to warrant an official emblem be
ing given them. There seems to be
no opposition to this amendment.
The second amendment, providing
for one official “O” being granted all
winners of the emblem once during
their career in any activity, is be
ing strenuously fought by the athletes
and equally as strenuously cham
pioned by the students.
Those who introduced this measure
contend, that the present finances of
the student’s association warrant only
rigid economical expenditure, and
that the sum of $1100 or more which
is expended each year on sweaters
and emblems for winners of them, is
too great, and that the amendment
will save at least $200 per year. The
Universities of California, Idaho, and
other institutions, are quoted as pre
cedents for such action, and the
divinity of altruism in athletes and
forensics is made use of in their ar
The athletes and those opposed to
the amendment contend, that the
work connected with making an "O”
is so hard and so grilling that it would
gladly be shunned after two years par
ticipation. that it is only loyalty to the
University that brings the men out
after the first two years, and that it
would be a mark of ungratitude to
deprive the men of the only official
reward for faithful service the insti
tution allows them.
The Emerald has no desire to ad
vance tlu> cause of either side, but
asks that the students give this
amendment careful consideration, and
vote yes or no, according to convic

now it has something to say to the
Board of Regents and the voters of
the state in behalf of one of these
departments at Oregon, i. e. Ger
The Department of German at Ore
gon has three hundred students en
rolled and only two instructors to
handle the mob. The University of
Washington has five hundred students
enrolled in its German department
and ten instructors to guide them.
Now, unless our mathematics is
wrong, at the University of Washing
ton there are only fifty students to the
instructor in this department, making
each class number fifteen or twenty
students, while at Oregon there are
one hundred and fifty students to the
instructor, and each class contains all
the way from thirty to sixty stu
It is needless to say that the Ore
gon department is overcrowded, that
the instructors are overworked, and
the students are not receiving the in
dividual attention students in lan
i guage should receive.

The Gymnasium Again
me Editor, Emerald:
some mention has been made about
uie cleanliness of the Gym. Its san
itation can be greatly advanced if
the men would only use a little judg
ment. Any observer, going through
the dressing rooms can find dried
sputum on the walls! Think of it!
lnseuse spread in one of the most
filthy ways known! No one would
do it intentionally, but it is the
thoughtlessness that does the dam
age. 'ihe janitor knows this, but if
he were to clean up all this mess
which the men carelessly make, he
would be going from midnight to
1 think that if the men would show
a little consideration and just a grain
of common sense, the janitor at least
would have more opportunity to get
] around to some of the big messes
which are also carelessly made by
some of the absent-minded.
This is a good idea, and now that
wo are on the unpleasant subject, let
us suggest that the gymnasium be
fitted out with a number of large
spittoons—not the country hotel va
riety, but larger cans with wide
mouths, such as are found in public
places in our cities. A gymnasium,
of all places, is the most likely place
to cause a person to expectorate, for
if one has any cold, cataarh or simi
lar complaint, the exercise indulged
in makes expectoration a necessity;
but our gymnasium provides no re
ceptacle for sputum, and consequent
ly the men become careless and dirty
the floor and walls in the unsanitary
manner stated by our “Spectator.”
Nicholson, of the University of
Missouri, will probably head the
