WOULD INFUSE LIFE
INTO DEAD MAGAZINE
If Executive Committee Agrees, Em
erald Subscribers Will Also
Ahoy! The good ship Oregon
Monthly has possibly been sighted in
the offing under a brand new set of
sails,—nothing will be definitely
known, however, until the fog lifts
and action is taken by the Executive
Committee. To be exact, plans are
now under way whereby the Oregon
Monthly, now extinct, will be taken
over by the Emerald and published
once a month as an extra edition. No
final decision will be reached until
some time in February, but Manager
Collier of the Emerald, yesterday
said, “This scheme will be feasible
providing we are able to get enough
advertising to pay for the extra edi
tions, so that a copy could be fur
nished each Emerald subscriber at no
added charge Just at present mer
chants are scarce with their adver
tising. Success of the undertaking
depends on this.”
According to Carleton Spencer,
president of the Student Body, the
present plan is to appoint a special
staff of two or three students, who
will have entire charge of the
Monthly, entirely apart from the
Emerald, except for the advertising
and managing departments.
“The Oregon Monthly,” said Spen
cer,” is defunct for this year at least,
it died because of no support and
will not be resurrected until enough
interest is aroused to care lor it.
Should the plan to annex the
Monthly to the Emerald prove suc
cessful, the University of Oregon
will have the unique record of being
the first college in this country to
combine the college paper and a
monthly under one management.

Whereas, The people of our state,
at the last general election, under
what we believe was a mistaken im
pulse of economy, or else a misunder
standing of conditions, voted down
the Millage Hill, which seemed to us
to be a reasonable appropriation and
a good proposition for the harmony
and unifying of the work of our State
University and Agricultural College.
Therefore he it resolved, That the
Ashland Commercial Club does hereby
petition the members of the State
Legislature to make adequate provi
sions for the support of the Univer
sity of Oregon, provide soon1 means of
settlement as to the difference be
tween the University of Oregon and
Agricultural College, so that both ot
them may be of the greatest benefit
to the people of our state.

OBJECT TO SLANG

“seems captious to object,” and to “I
don’t like my towels laundered,” he
wrote “leaves me in doubt as to
The English professors were asked
to arrange certain sets of phrases in
the order of their offensiveness. The
professor of Journalism put down
“that’s pretty fierce” at the head of
the list, and arranged the others in
this order of objectionableness: “she’s
a peach,” “a wise guy,” “cut it out,”
“glad rags,” “he’ll get his,” “that’s
one on me,” “beat him to it, ’ and
then some,” and finally “get down to
brass tacks,” as most acceptable.
To see a stranger chewing gum is
more objectional to one critic than
: to see the same stranger drinking
from a cup with a spoon in it; while
emerging from a meal with a tooth
pick in the mouth is half as bad as
eating peas with a knife.
He considers the interjection of
swear words (mild profanity for em
phasis) not one-fourth as objection
able as neglected finger nails, and
about on a par with a slightly soiled
collar on an acquaitaince.
Among other words which the Wis
consin psychologist submits for cri
ticism are “reliable,” “postal card,
“said person,” “ugly” for ill tempered,
“vest,” “an editorial,” “aggravate,”
“a third alternative,” “fleshy,” “bun
dle” for package, “stunning,” “vic
tuals,” “every so often,” “home
town,” “toothsome,” “small” for
color, “transpire,” “peeved,” “stand
point,” and others. The professors
are asked to name comparative offen
siveness of each word or phrase by
fines ranging from one cent to one
dollar. For the use of “peeved” one
professor marked “$1.75-plus ; and
for the use of the word “viewpoint”
instead of “standpoint,” he would fine
“a million dollars with 100 years in
The expression “Oh, how cute,” was
fined all the way from 5 to 50.
Among those expressions receiving
heavy fines were “a light complected
girl,” “I can’t enthuse over that,”
“the Reverend Jones.” “he made a
date for next week,” “I saw in the
paper where (such and such a thing
happened),” “say, do you know, etc.”
Among the most offensive mis
spellings were fourty,” “buziness,”
“complimentary (color),” “opperate,”
“grammar,” “fulfill.” The spelling
of accommodate with but one “m”
seemed least offensive on the list.
NEW MANAGERIAL DEPT.
CREATED FOR EMERALD
Manager Collier, of the Emerald,
announces that a new managerial de
partment has been created for taking
care of all Emerald collections.
This new department will be in
charge of Sam Michael, who will re
tain his present position as circula
tion manager. This move has been
taken to issue more system and order
in the collection of bills, the respon
sibilily for which has hitherto been
divided. Sam Michael has appointed
as his assistants, Glen Wheeler, ’16,
John Brown, ’10.

tions. Improvement in the legislative
process and procedure has not kept
pace with increasing burdens and dif
ficulties of legislation. Lawmaking
by legislatures has not gained in effi
j ciency with demands made upon it.
Hence shortcoming and abuses with
' consequent determination by the peo
ple to have protection. And further,
as they became conscious of the need
of having legislation held true to the
promotion of the common good, they
: are also, through having advantage
of increasingly effective agencies of
discussion, gaining in confidence in
I their own power to pass upon the is
