A Pledge to the Commonwealth.
PLEDGES, LIKE prayers, are often likely to degenerate into
mere repetition of a lot of jumbled up, chinesified words, with
out the slightest thought-creating value. Tomorrow morning at
the regular 10 o’clock assembly a pledge of fealty will be adminis
tered to the student body—or as much of it as shows up—for the
purpose of reminding the prospective graduates that they have a
debt to pay to the state which has fostered an educational insti
tution for the benefit of the commonwealth.
If there is any time that the students should take such a cere
mony seriously, it is tomorrow. And it will not redound to the
credit of the University if there is an audience of vacant benches,
with a sparse sprinkling of blase students. High officials in the
state administration will be present at the pledging exercises and
their reaction to the spirit displayed will determine to a large ex
tent what their attitude toward Oregon will be in the future. If
they are disappointed in the showing their attitude toward the
University will be the same as the students’ ostensible attitude to
ward the state. And on the other hand, if they are impressed by
the interest and conscientiousness of the students, they will be in
a position to repay that sentiment many-fold.
Who knows but that the simple taking of a pledge to the com
monwealth may not mean more support for the University from
the state. And everybody knows that Oregon needs all the sup
Amendments Up Tomorrow.
IN THIS issue of the Emerald we are publishing a list of the
measures which are to be voted on tomorrow. It is a long list,
and we are not giving up space to them for mere ornament. They
are intended for serious thought, so that the returns of the ballot
ing will show the real brains of the student body. Lack of space
prevents any “proing and conning” of the why and wherefore of
the proposed measures. We recommend a little table-talk on the
matter, especially a little advice to the freshmen from the upper
Owing to the desire not to make the ballot too complex and
long, the phraseology of the measures are not printed on the tick
ets which are to be used in the election; but instead opposite each
“yes” number on the ballot appears the title of the suggested
change.These captions, alone, are not comprehensive enough for an
intelligent vote, so each and every voter—and remember Oregon
has equal suffrage—owes it to himself and herself to study over
the measures verbatim.
We recommend that the ballot be clipped from the Emerald,
and referred to in casting each vote.
At the upper part of the ballot appear two numbers—100 and
101—which is a time-saver if some wish to vote a .straight affirm
ative or negative ticket. Merely as a comment—and not to be
taken too seriously, or to be used as a means of shirking a study of
the measures, it might be said that we are strictly in favor of vot
ing a straight “yes” ticket, and really look forward to an election
return with the statement: to-wit, nullo dissente.
In response to the Emerald’s appeal for longer hours for the
library, we were patted on the back by numerous habitual back
patters. Do the students want the library open longer? If so,
it will be arranged; at least, so says a reporter especially despatch
ed to headquarters to find out. But such an arrangement means
added expense, and will be wasted unless the privilege is used.
For the purpose of getting student sentiment on the matter before
the authorities take the matter up with the board of regents, we
recommend that every house take a straw vote on the matter and
report the same to their Emerald representative for publication.
A rumor has come to us that some students, cooperating with
the proper authorities, are planning to get out an official program
for the O. A. C.-Oregon game on November 20, and have made
efforts to get advertising for the same. If we remember correctly
a resolution was passed last year confining all official soliciting
of advertising to the two official body publications. We favor a
program for the home-coming celebration, to be financed by the
student body, but we are not in favor of violating the rule passed
A comment that has passed from tongue to tongue among
successive generations of Oregon students for four score and
nearly three years is the statement that the townspeople and es
pecially the merchants want to see more campus football games.
What we would like to know, with due deference, is how in the
world do they expect to see more campus games if they don’t go
out to see them when they are here? They have been conspicuous
by their absence: viz, the Idaho game.
Oregon is not the only place where the progressive collegettes
are pursuing novel campaigns to raise the wherewithal for a
Women’s building. The women of Northwestern university or
iginated the bargain-barber-shop idea a few days ago, and sham
pooed, manicured, shined and demonitized the college sports.
