WE’LL STUDY ALMOST AS MUCH
AS WE DO NOW
The faculty is considering a rule
limiting the number of social func
tions, formal or informal, which any
fraternity or other student organi
zation may give to two a year. W<5
predict that the rule, if enacted, will
have its effect on our social life. How
ever, the effect will hardly be what
the faculty anticipates.
Doubtless the measure will be wel
comed with rejoicing by many of the
women’s fraternities, who will find
in it a handy exit through which to
crawl out of the duty of reciprocal j
ing the men’s attentions by giving
them parties. Doubtless, also, it will!
reduce the number of social affairs
within the college community. Wheth
er it will actually lessen the amount
of social activity is another matter.
We opine that it will not. The nor
mal college student craves a certain
leaven in his daily bread, and if he
does not get it in one form he will
find it in another; if not inside col
lege precincts, then outside.
Therefore one of the results the
new rule will accomplish will he that
of fattening the gate receipts at a
certain local shrine of Terpsichore.
The pool halls, picture shows, and re-1
freshment parlors will all gain by
the faculty’s legislation. Also; the
student will he compelled to pay
more for his diversions than at pres
ent, because entertaining at home is
less expensive than “doing” the town.
As we said before, the rule will
have its effect on our social life.
THE COMPULSORY CLASS TAX
Were there any evidence to indicate
that a compulsory class tax would
work an actual hardship on the self-,
supporting, poverty-stricken student,
the Emerald would he inclined to op
pose the constitutional amendment
which is to he submitted to the Stu
dent Body Assembly Wednesday.
However, class Treasurers and
other officials who have enjoyed the
delightful privilege of collecting the
dues testify with one voice that it is
not the poor but honest student who
dodges his dues. Rather, it is the
man who is prosperous enough finan
einlv, but deficient in generosity and
class loyalty, who shows his heels
to the tax-gatherer.
It is said that at present on the av
erage not more than GO per cent of
the students pay their class dues, anil
the delinquent 10 per cent is made up
almost entirely of those who could
afford to pay but will not.
A compulsory tax, collected by the
Registrar at the beginning of the
year along with the registration and
Student Body fees, would affect every,
one alike. Coming at this time, when
we generally have some money and
are prepared to have it pried from
us by one means or another, the part
ing would seem less painful.
Best of all, the compulsory tax
would clear up most of the perplex
lties ol class finances. £.acn ciass
would have a definite annual income,
and it could regulate its expenditures
accordingly. And since the budget
does not vary greatly from year to
year, this plan would not lead to ex
The surplus, if any, which the class
might accumulate in its third or
fourth year could be used to advan
tage, either in improving its Ore
gana, or in providing a decent me
morial on the campus.
And, speaking of the Oregana, is
this not the most promising solution
of that knotty problem yet suggest-,
Incidentally, it would be possible
under the proposed system to utilize
the best business brains in the han
dling of class finances. Heretofore
the necessity of constantly dunning!
his fellow-classmen has made many
a good man shy from the class treas
And finally, placing the collection
of the tax in the Registrar’s hands
would give the class the benefit of the
efficient book-keeping service of the
University office. Method and sys
tem would displace chaos, and there
would no longer be cause to impugn
the integrity or efficiency of a class
treasurer because of carelessly-kept
These are some of the advantages
of the proposed plan. Can they be
ANI) HERE’S ANOTHER
Another amendment which deserves
to pass next Wednesday is that mak
ing the President of the Student Body
a member of the Athletic Council.
At present the Athletic Council
and Executive Committee work in
the dark, so far as each other’s
movements are concerned. The Coun
cil spends the Student Body’s money
and the Committee appropriates it,
yet there is no man who serves on
both bodies and thus knows their re
pective attitudes on a common ques
The Student Body President is al
ready a member of the Executive
Committee, and his office is the log
ical link through which the connec
tion should be established.
DO YOU KNOW HIM?
He is not very ,‘prominent” and
he does not pretend to be very wise.
Nevertheless he is one of the really
big men on the campus.
And this is why: he is not so en
grossed in his own affairs and im
pressed with his own importance that
he begrudges the word of sympathy
or appreciation which his fellow-stu
dent may merit.
When you have staked n good part
of your heart and brain on any* kind
of game and won—or failed—and yet
nobody seems to care, and you wonder
“what’s the use ” then this man
comes to you quietly and grasps your
hand and tells you you’ve done well.
And you feel a queer little thrill
somewhere deep in your chest, and
your spine stiffens, and you meet the
next task with a smile.
Nothing we might say could add
more than a shade to the lustre of

The Commencement play “The Shop
keeper Turned Gentleman,” by Mo

June 14, at the north slope of the
Butte Amphitheatre, is daily being re
hearsed. According to the present
indications, the production promises
to be one of the smoothest perform

The cast will include the entire class
in Dramatic Interpretation, which
numbers about 40 members. A touch
of pageantry will be added with the
introduction of dancing, which is a
feature of Moliere’s plays. The same
play was produced before King Louis
XIV, and it received the warmest
