YOU OKKt.ON ALUMNUS
On the first page is printed a com
munication from Chester Moores re
garding the attitude of a portion of
the students towards the wearing of
the dress suits at the college formals.
It represents the views of an alumnus
who is not only interested in his
Alma Mater, hut one whose interests
go deep enough that lie is willing to
take time and effoit to make sugges
Nothing is better for an individual or
for a group than to he criticised; and
it is that individual or group which is
the most progressive that is willing
to receive suggestions and critic
The University students are at all
times more or less open to criticism;
the students want, it, and will listen.
Are the Alumni sufficiently interested
in us to off(‘r it? Of course it takes
time to sit down and write one’s opin
ions; and possibly it takes a little
courage to sign his name and open
himself to criticism. Cut things with
out cost seldom have utility.
Now, you members of the Oregon
Alumni, the Kmerald opens its col
umns to you. Your suggestions are
wanted. My your advanced age and
by your positions in life, you are able
to take a broader view than we are;
you could unquestionably help us in
our decisiions, in our problems. What
are you going to do about it?
A subject to write about that's of
live importance? You don’t, have to
go very far. What do you think about
the recent action of the Student Af
fairs Committee in abolshing the
Monthly. Were they justified?
Should they have waited until the end
of the year; should they have ap
pointed a new manager; should they
abolish if altogether, or should they
make it a monthly addition to the
Kmerald as is now the plan; should
they have brought their actions be
fore tlie vote id’ the students; should
they have considered the request of
the editor, who lias thrown herself
into the work, made plans, and spent
her own money in an effort to stitn
ulate the popularity of the paper;
what would you do under the situa
tion” Your judgement is valuable.
Lets have it.

The Oregon Legislature.
Plans are developing to have the
regular issues of the Emerald go to
the desk of every Oregon legislator
during the approaching session.
Along with regular University news
budget a presentation of data on one
or more problems of Oregon legisla
tion will be featured in each issue,

not hot, the results of University re
There is no pretension in this ven
ture of anything more than the giv

sity should be used and used largely,
for distinctively state University pur
The pages of the Emerald do not
afford the space for real discussion,
but outlines, diagrams, maps, charts,
analysis, and bibliographies, can be
submitted as University contribu
tions towards commonwealth prog
ress. Individual requests for Uni
versity aid in matters of pubic inter
est are coming fast. Only lack of
clearness on what the State Univer
sity is really for, prevents calls for
light issuing from every quarter of
the state. Reference to the Univer
sity of questions of data on public
problems shall be suggested and for
tered until it becomes a habit with
the Oregon people.
This University participation in
preparing material for Oregon law
makers and administrators, is as nec
essary for the University as it may
be helpful to the people. It makes
for worth and brings reality into Uni
versity work. In this activity the
giving is many fold better than the
receiving, though the service thus re
ceived by the state is not to be dis
The readers of the Emerald will
surely countenance this innovation
with which it for a season projects
itself into a new field. Just stop to
think a moment before you say this
is presumptuous. Our Oregon system
presupposes that every citizens with
but little leisure or means for inves
tigation is competent to pass upon
all matters of public affairs. Should
not students having the advantages
afforded by the state’s highest insti
tution for training for citizenship
have some fitness and some respon
sibility for a part in determining pub
lic policies. And indeed how can an
institution assume the status of a
state university without being pos
sessed with deep sense of interest and
responsibility in public welfare?
