At Last—The Emerald Staff.
AFTER TWO and a half months of try-out for positions on
the Emerald, we are publishing the status and personnel of the
This year we have purposely delayed the selection on account
of the extreme importance of appointing those choice spirits who
have a combination of those talents best adapted to reportorial
work. We have considered every candidate individually after in
vestigating the evidence of meritorious work on his or her part
for the past two and a half months. Our idea of a good reporter
is one who combines in the best proportion those characteristics
that make him especially adapted to handle and disseminate to a
college clientele news items in their correct values. And conscien
tiousness is one of the attributes of an Emerald reporter that is ab
The work thus far this year has been considered as a kind of
qualifying examination. The examination has been conducted
along civil service lines and no partiality has been allowed to creep
into the matter.
The staff as it now stands is by no means final. The tryout
continues to the end of the year. If we are painfully reminded
that some reporter invested with a responsible position is “falling
down on the job” we will try to find another. Several of the ap
pointees are far from ideal, and we refer to the upper-staff as
well as to the lower. They seem to suffer from a type of reno
toxin, but we have overlooked the “sluffing,” thinking perhaps
that the inventive to conscientious work would come by publishing
Some few candidates are perhaps disappointed and to them
we will leave the “tip” that their chance may come. The linotype
man doesn’t mind resetting the staff once in a while, for he al
ways has some criticism of the copy turned in, and it is often de
lightful to him in his work to see some tardy, untidy copyist drop
ped from the staff.
The staff is always open to new candidates, and if, perchance,
some person tires of his or her particular line of work, we are al
ways ready to consider them for other positions.
Last year the women of the University edited an excellent
edition of the Emerald, and editorially urged that the women be
given a chance on upper-staff work which heretofore has always
been in the hands of men. We have a list of women whom we are
going to try out on upper-class positions sometime in the future,
and if they show merit, we will not hesitate to give them the of
fices as long as the work merits it.
We can hardly let this chance go by without patting the re
porters on the back. As a rule the reportorial work, on which the
publication of a paper primarily depends, has been above par, and
we appreciate it.
We are having a lot of fun out of the work and hope that
everybody else is. It’s a great game. Lets all get into the fun,
and pull together for a good Emerald.
West Versus East.
TOO OFTEN in the past, our eastern cousins have been wont
to sing their own gridiron praises which sounded sweet in their
own ears. The song too long has been somewhat Kiplingesque:
“Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall
At last, however, west has met east, and the west has shown
her mettle. To the Oregon Aggies belongs the credit of exploring a
field of athletic conquest that long has been deemed invincible to
the western pioneers. The west won out against the east.
Tomorrow the east meets the west in the west—O. A. C. ver
sus Syracuse—and the Aggies have a great opportunity to estab
lish a new fact in the athletic world; to wit, that the west, if any
thing, is better than the east.
We sincerely hope that O. A. C. drags down the eastern col
ors, which have for years been flaunted in the faces of the west in
too condescending a manner. Too long has the east conducted it
self as the teacher of the west.
Now is the chance of the west to teach the east that the west
knows how to play football.
An Unheeded Oregon Victory.
IN THE excitement of the moment following the victory of
Oregon and amid the visions of Turkey, we forgot to mention a
victory that is liable to be overlooked or forgotten. We refer par
ticularly to the 5 to 0 victory of the women’s hockey team over the
O. A, C. team. It was a great victory, and was won only after a
great fight with the ‘dope’’ against the Oregon team, as usual.
The team won by superior fight and strategy, and has added to
the athletic laurels of the University. Oregon should boost—and
boost hard—for her victorious women. And there may be a re
turn game in Corvallis, in which case we would like to see a little
Oregon spirit displayed. The team deserves that at least.

Fraternity Postpones Initiation.
Because Dean Collins of the Oregon
ian was unable to be in Eugene the Fri
day before the O. A. C. game, Sigma
Delta Chi, national honorary journalistic
fraternity, has postponed its initiation
ceremonies until some date just before
the Christmas vacation. Mr. Collins was
to have been made an honorary member,
but his business interferred with his mak
ing the trip.
Yale University—The cleanliness of
Yale athletics has been stamped as un
assailable, since the authofities at New
Haven took prompt action in dealing with
the five men recently who confessed to
having technically violated the summei
baseball rule. The five Yale athletes
were not aware that they were violating
the letter of the law. When they learned
they had done so, they confessed their
guilt, and the authorities immediately de
clared them ineligible.
