GIVE AND TAKE.
The preliminary step toward the
formation of a Pan-Hellenic League
for the men's fraternities at Oregon
has been taken, and now It only rests
with the fraternities themselves to
see to It that the whole thing does
not fall through, but, insead, is made
an Important and useful part of the
Oregon University system.
In drawing up the rules to govern
such an organization there Is bound
to be more or less friction. Each
fraternity or club represented will
have Its own Ideals and Ideas as to
how tilings should be run, which
will clash In minor details with the
ideas held by some of the others.
And there Is likely to be a certain
amount of justice backing the con
tentious of each.
Uut such differences must not be
allowed to stand In the way of per
manent organization. They will not
imment organization. They will
be Important in character, and a step
which lias in^Hr so much latent good
for the University, as well as for
the fraternities themselves, must not
be halted by any petty disagree
A policy of give and take should
be followed. Each fraternity will
find that, in all probability, it will
he compelled to give in in certain
tilings. And with the amicable rela
tions existing in the fraternity world
at Oregon, there can be hardly anw
doubt that this policy will be fol
lowed, and that in the near future
Oregon will be classed among the
colleges and universities of the coun
try in which tlie need for organized
fraternity self-regulation, and the
benefits accruing from such a course
have been recognized,
A good class hour is a rare thing,
one of the rarest on the campus, but
yesterday the University was treat
ed to one which was really worth
attending. The sophomores are to
be commended on the excellence of
their program, and the rest of the
students are to be commended for
the excellence of their behavior dur
ing the course of the program. Col
lege spirit may be as well expressed
through gentlemanly approval, as
through boisterous condemnation.

Editor Oregon Emerald:
Please permit me to comment
briefly upon your reporter’s account
of my attitude toward senior theses,
as given In a recent issue of the Em
The Information which I intended
to convey to your reporter was, that
within the department of education,
ordinarily, the senior student has not
had sufficient preliminary prepara
tion to undertake independent the
sis work meriting separate credit on
a B. A. degree. The preparation of
special papers, reports and records
of investigations is therefore of most
worth when made in connection with
a regularly organized course, within
the scope of which it receives due
