A GOOD IDEA
The Emerald is not in favor of the
restriction of the accepted formali
ties for social functions on the sham
pretext of democracy. For this rea
son we are opposed to the abolishment
of the dress suit at this college, be
lieving that no occasion arises on
which a man really in need of that liv
ery cannot buy or borrow it.
But when there are valid econom
ic reasons for taooolng certain ap
pendages, such as cabs and flowers,
we like to see an opposition move
ment succeed. This is the cuse with
the Junior Prom. The usual toll,
which is not imposed at other class
formats, together with the other ex
penses of Junior Week-End, make this
a time at which any possible saving
to the downtrodden student is doubly
Then, too, there is the consideration
of courtesy. There cannot possibly
bo enough cabs and flowers in Eugene
to go around that evening, with doz
ens of visitors added to the usual
University crowd. This will mean
that some couples will have to walk
and some girls go garlandless, and in
practice it is not the students, but
the less astute preppers and outsid
ers who must suffer these indignities.
Several spasmodic efforts by class
es hnve been made to legislate against
cabs and flowers, but this is the first
year the class giving the dance has
undertaken the proscription. The Jun
iors deserve the heartiest co-operation
of the other classes in their present

In 1895 the college record in the
mile was held by R. H. Hurley, with
a time of 5:56 3-5, about a minute
and a half slower than the present
time. In this same year Merritt Da
vis held the record in the 100 at 10.4,
and C. Bishop was the best half-miler
with a record of 2:30 3-5.
Some of the records, made slightly
later, it is true, are remarkable, but
not in the same sense. In 1906 Dan
Kelly ran the 100 in 9 4-5, the 220 in
21 3-5, and broad jumped 24 feet 2 1-2
inches. In those days Zacharias and

number. Every two months the pos

OREGONITE IS HONORED
Edward W. Smith, Who Attended the
University 1905-1908, Is Lauded
in Newspaper Article
“The twenty-six year old Oregon
manager of Equitable Life Insurance
Society, Edgar W. Smith, is one of
the most discussed agents in Amer
ica,” begins an article under the cap
tion, “Can write and manage too—
Career of Edgar W. Smith.”
“The Equitable manager will qual
ify this year for «the Half Million
Club," continues the article, which
appeared in the Eastern Underwriter
a weekly newspaper covering all
branches of insurance, of April 9,
1915. The periodical is published in
New York City.
Mr. Smith is a former University
of Oregon student, having been here
three years, from September, 1905,
until June, 1908. He majored in Eco
nomics and had a good average rec
ord for the entire time, according to
A. R. Tiffany, Registrar. He entered
the University from the Pendleton
“The Life Underwriters Associa
tion of Oregon has twice honored Mr.
Smith by electing him to office, the
first time as secretary of the associ
ation, and the second time at the an
nual meeting this year, he was cho
sen to serve as president for 1915 by
the unanimous vote of the members,”
the article continues.
“It goes without saying that he has
qualified annualy for the company’s
Quarter Million and Century Clubs,
and will this year be enrolled in the
Equitable’s new Half Million Club.”
