Wo ai'o constantly receiving com
plaints front our advertisers that, they
do not get results front their ads in
the Ktneraltk They say that you do
not read the ads. Is this true? If
you don't reuil the ads, why don't
you? We don't want to tell you
where you shall trade, but we do
want to show you that If you don’t
read our ads, you are losers, flnan
hast month several of our adver
tisers put on elearauce sajos, and
advertised them In the Emerald.
One of the mere hunts said that he
did not do as much business with the
University students during the sale
as he did before, although he was
selling Ills goods at a discount of
about 25 per cent. Can you see
where there is money In reading our
A very large proportion of our
students are working their way
through school. Now w'ould It or
would it not pay them to watch our
ails, and profit by the saving which
they could make thereby?
If you do not need to economize,
you should at least help those who
help you. It is a well known fact
that most papers are run on the rev
enue derived from the advertising.
The subscription money Is counted
as profit. The Eugene merchants,
then support the Emerald. Why not
make the money which they Invest
(for money spent for advertising Is
an investment) bring them returns.
Is it fair to ask them to dig Up their
perfectly good money merely to sup
ply the students of the University
with a paper? Hardly.
The* merchant of today regards
money spent for advertising as a
part of tne expense of selling his
goods. H< knows that he may sell
at lower prices than his competitors,
bjut if he does.not lot the public, who
must In1 depended upon to supply the
profit through their purchases at his
store, know of his low prices,
they will not buy of him, because I
they have seen his competitor’s
name before them so much that they
naturally suppose that his competitor
is the man who sells the goods, and
that Is the place to buy. The mer
chants of Eugene art' not exceptions
to the rule. They are ready to spend
all kinds of money with us, if they
can see that It Is a paying proposi
tion. It is up to you students to
make Emerald advertising a paying
SCHOOLS OP THE EAST AND
In an editorial, telien from the of
ficial student publication at the Uni
versity of Chicago, “The Daily Ma
roon,’’ the complaint is voiced that
blind following of student custom,
and unreasoning loyalty to student
activities are too much in vogue.
This criticism could hardly be made
of the under-graduate attitude at
Oregon', where new customs are in
augurated at least twice a year, and
where good, healthy “crabs ’ are
more the rule than otherwise.
And incidentally, the 50 odd per
cent of male students who 'work their
way tnrough college at the Universi
ty of Oregon might be surprised if
they were suddenly dropped into such
an atmosphere of aloofness and self
rated superiority which the Maroon
states is peculiar to the made-to-or
der college man.
The Maroon’s comment follows:
“One of the characteristic er^
rors in the average student’s point of
view about stud'ent artivities is the
impression that we must boost any
thing and everything that bears the
name, student activity. If anyone
started some activity, and invokes
the ‘Chicago spirit,’ we must take
hold, forsooth, and boost, regardless
of our opinion as to the worth of
the move, lest we be called traitor
to Chicago, etc. And if anyone dares
criticise a move of this sort—High
Treason! Les Majeste! Just why?
There is no reason why anyone
should let himself become involved
m the four-year feadmill of student
activities unless he wishes. If he
does not want to exchange the spon
taneous joy of life for the ’work
habit,’ which student activities teach,
there is no reason why he should be
accused of treachery of lack of spirit.
If student activities want support of
students, they should bid for it by
offering some return the students
want. And if the student does not
care to accept their offering—whose
business is it but his own? There is
nothing sacred about student activi
ties, nothing which should make men
halt and hold their criticism, nothing
which should be accorded the sup
port of everyone.
Another pet delusion of unthink
ing male students is this—the edu
cational process of college is a sort
of mill, into which they drop in their
Freshman year, through which they
(are ground, being planed, trimmed,
sand-papered and polished, for four
years, and from which they are
dropped into a hopper—the world
stamped ‘Standard-College Product,’
w'th a market-value superior to that
they could have commanded had they
not already been through the mill.
In plain terms, college education is
supposed, per se, to add a definite
increment to the student’s earning
power. ‘That is no place for a col
lege man,' Is the proud refusal which
meets the proposition of starting in
a minor position. This is the atti
tude that makes many competent
business men wild-eyed when college
education is mentioned. The truth
of the matter is, that no amount of
education (except in a professional
course) in itself adds fine cent, to the
earning power of anyone. Anyone
who is in college with that hope is
wasting time. The educational ma
terial must he absorbed and treated
with a liberal application of brain
work on the part of the individual,
and must be backed up with person
ality, common sense, and apprecia
tion of values, before it Is worth any*
tiling in the business world.”
