Tuesday, April 29, 1913.
Contemporaneous publications have
commented quite frequently of late
upon the fact that the educational sit
uation here in Oregon is already at
tracting the attention of other states.
That this is true of our neighboring
states is evidenced by the following
which appears in the University of
Washington Daily under the heading
"A Hampered Institution”:
“Few of the educational institu
tions of the United States are oc
cupying such a precarious position
as does the University of Oregon.
“For years efforts have been made
in the State of Oregon to combine
the State University ut Eugene with
the State Agricultural College at
Corvallis. With every session of
the legislature the struggle to
unite the two institutions has grown
more bitter. Attempts have been
made by one of the schools to min
imize the appropriations granted
the other institution.
“The lust legislature of the State
of Oregon granted money for the
erection of two new buildings upon
the campus of the University of
Oregon. Now the more active citi
zens who believe in combining the
two schools are attempting to get a
referendum vote on the appropria
tion made for new buildings. Des
perate efforts will be made to check
what may be regarded as the per
manent growth of the State Uni
"The question of combining a
state university with a state college,
the one being a distinctly technical
institution, can be easily argued on
one side or the other. It is natural
that both institutions should strug
gle for their own existence.
“But it is indeed to be regretted
that a state institution must oc
cupy a position so precarious as
does the University of Oregon at
the present time.”
While we may doubt that the Uni
versity’s position can correctly be
characterized as “precarious," there is
no question as to its being “hamp
ered.” A great state like Oregon, in
order to hold its place among the
other states of the nation, must be
represented by a great University.
The efforts of those within the Uni
versity, as faculty, officers, or stu
dents, is unanimously toward the end
of making .he institution worthy of
the state it represents. To this end
the highest standards of etlieicncy and
the noblest ideals of citizenship and
manhood are maintained.
Besides the forces at work within
the University itself, there is the
great army of friends of higher educa
tion all over the state, who are doing
all within their power to make Oregon
as attractive from an educational
standpoint as it is from others. I'o
these people especially is it a matter
of regret that the state's educational
policy is becoming a matter of com
ment They are looking forward to
the time when Oregon can be as proud
of its State University as it is of its
many other up-to-date and progres
Ust fall the Emerald announced
that it would follow the universal
newspaper rule of not printing anon
ymous letters, and has not yet broken
it. The editor has several letters from
“Students” and others whose identity
is unknown to him. If the authors
can show good reasons why their
names should be withheld, this priv-"
ilege may be granted. But in no case
will a letter coming from an abso
lutely unknown source be printed, no
matter what its subject.

Nominations for Student Body of
fices will be made at the annual Stu
dent Body meeting next Wednesday,
May 7. The election conies a week
later, May 14.
Political bees are already beginning
to buzz in anticipation of the annual
spring campaign. Just who will run
for the various offices, however, is
still a matter of speculation. Vernon
Motschenbacher is the only man who
has definitely announced himself for
Student Body president, although Con
Bice and Allie tlrout are spoken of as
likely candidates. Henry Fowler and
Harold Young have long been consid
er d the only candidates for the Fm
erald. Possible candidates for secre
tary are more numerous, including
Norma l'obie, Maud Mastick, Ruth
Beach and several “dark horses."
