THE OREGON .MONTHLY
The Executive Council has voted to
discontinue the Oregon Monthly and
to establish a literary department of
the Emerald. The editing of this
literary supplement will be practically
the same as that of the Monthly. The
editor in charge will have a corps of
assistants and will lie entirely inde
pendent of all other departments of
the Emerald. The real change will
occur in the management; the Emer
ald manager taking complete charge.
The Emerald has consented to un
dertake-this task in order to provide
a field for the literary work of the
University. We feel that by doing
this we can aid in re-establishing, at
an early date, the Oregon Monthly in
its old form and upon a firm financial
foundation. Work of this nature
should receive every encouragement
and, when worthy, should receive pub
The Council was actuated by
It had in mind the fight for life
which the Monthly went through last
year, and which ended in its becom
ing a quarterly instead of a Monthly,
although retaining the misnomer.
This arrangement did not afford pub
lication facilities for all the worthy
literary productions of the Univer
Action of the Merchant’s Protective
Association and various other hinder
ances made it impossible for the
Monthly to maintain itself financially
by means of advertising. The Stu
dent Body appropriation was far from
sufllcient to make up the deficit. This
prevented the staff from doing justice
to itself. It was hampered and wor
ried on all sides by the conscious
ness of limited space and unstable
support. If the publication were to
be maintained, it would have to be
done by direct Student Body appro
priations, which our treasury will not
warrant. On the other hand, the
Emerald’s business organization is
such that it can assume the publica
tion of a -literary supplement ami
practically make it pay for itself.
The Executive Council was also
prompted by one other important
consideration. I'he work done by Uni
versity writers deserves wide circula
tion. Every one who reads it, is fav
orably impressed Published as u lit

What the College
Editors are Saying
“Don’t Kick, You Loafer.”
“Now that the season of Dean’s re
ports has come, we hear numerous
complaints of what taskmasters the
profs are and how unfair they are in
their decisions. When you hear a
pseudo-student kicking because he
hasn’t got a square deal, and that he
really didn’t deserve the report, put
him down as one of those brilliant
scholars who was laboring under the
impression that he could bluff the pro
“Absolutely the only cure for an
idea of this sort, as far as the in
structor is concerned, is good consist
ent work from now on to the end of
the semester. Otherwise there is lit
tle hope for the delinquent. The pur
pose of these mid-semester reports is
to put the student on the qui vive.
And in most cases they serve their
purpose. For unless too many re
ports are sent in the result need not
necessarily be fatal.”—Ohio State

Elizabeth Busch, Edna Messenger,
and Helen Holbrook, took up phases
of the Juvenile Court topic. Miss
Busch spoke of the work of Mrs.
Baldwin and her assistants in Port

little money was spent for children
in comparison with that spent in
penitentiaries and insane asylums.
Miss Messenger took May Norton’s
place and read of the Camp Fire
