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 against each. 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 guments. 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 convictions. ***•**#»*» * EMEKAM) BANQUET * * _ * * The Emerald banquet will be * * held in the banquet room of the * Osburn Hotel Tuesday evening, at * * lidiO.

The Emerald swatted Foreign Lan guage Departments in a recent issue. 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 man. 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 dents. 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. Something should be done for this department. 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 midnight. 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. SPECTATOR. 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 r 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 1 string of hurdlers representing the 1 United States at Stockholm. He has repeatedly made 15.1 in the short event. Only one intercollegiate record has been broken so far this year. Beatty, of Columbia, shoved the shot put record to. 47 feet 1-8 inch, at the eastern inter-collegiate meet, held on Franklin field yesterday. Le Mar and Leslie Tooz«,f of Salem, are visiting at the Beta Theta Pi House with Tom Townsend. ....
