ADVICE TO THE LOVE ILL.
When you fall in love, don’t.

Don’t fall in love with a popular girl
—leave her to the professionals. '
Don’t tell her that you love her the'
first time you see her. If you do, she1
will find out that you are bughouse a
month before she should.
When you got to fussing steady writer
home for some more money. As a stall,
you might tell the Dad that you need the
money to pay for a specialist of mental
disorders. The chances are that it will
be spent in that cause, auyway. 1
When you take her out to dinner1
don’t order green onions. They cost tod

1 CAMPUS OPINION *
Human beings are possessed with cer
tain psychological instincts. One of
these factors is gang organization, most
prevalent among college students.
The University of Oregon has 51 gang
organizations, all dealing with social and
University affairs. The very popular
student has a “meeting” every night if
he chooses to attend.
What have these 53 organiaztions ac
complished? Very little.
The Sophomore class boasts four so
cieties, which do nothing more than com
pete with each other in picking Fresh
men who are to promulgate the organi
zation during the following year. These
organizations forget their real purposes
in college activities while engrossed in
the throes of competition. Competition
is the soul of business, but is it the soul
of campus activity? Should not a class,
a college, pull together—not apart?
Should not competition seep through the
outlet of athletics, oratory and debate
rather than through the outlet of campus
The students have admitted over-or
ganization and it is the students who
should sum up the situation and throw
off the load now hanging heavily upon
their backs. It is up to the students,
through the student council to cure the
curse of over-organiaztion.
But what will be the cure ? Let a sug
gestion be volunteered. Why is it not
possible to group campus activities un
der ten heads: Society, athletics, ora
tory and debate, dramatics, science, art,
music, commerce, journalism and litera
ture, allowing one organization in each
of these departments and confining all
details of each branch to that organiza
tion. And what would be the result of
the suggestion if carried out. A group
of efficient organiaztions, all working to
gether toward one end, the betterment of
PUT IT UP TO THE f'EMBERS.
The memorial committee of the Senior
class had to go down town for dinner
the other night in order to get-together
long enough to have a meeting. And
even at that Merlin Batley went as a
proxy, and Max Sommer went because
he couldn't remember whether or not he
was on the committee, but thought the
dinner sounded good. Another thing, the
tennis club which resurrected itself yes
terday made definite but secret plans to
meet next Wednesday morning during as
sembly hour if no other time can be
found. Sacred assembly hour—which
not even deans may usurp. Over-organ
ization again—if the matter may be men
tioned without offense.
Disbanding those organizations on the
campus which have ceased to do any
thing but create offices has been sug
gested. And we would offer the follow
ing as one way to find out which organi
zations are considered to be only mark
ing time by their own members. No cne
else apparently has a right to say.
At the next student body meeting,
which is far enough away to allow am
ple time to discuss the proposition, let
a straw vote be taken «n the question of
disbanding. Each student should vote
only on organizations to which he be
longed. In all cases where the votes
to disband any organization amounted to
a majority of the active members of it,
the Student Council should propose to
that body that it balance its books and
Visitors on the campus have charged
the student body with indiference, but not
with unwillingness to cure the evil. For
it is not a passive indifference, but a
condition grown upon us from the fact
that one human soul can not be in more
than one place or doing more than one
thing at a given moment.
If, after such a test vote, no organi
zation considers itself ready to lie down
and die, then the disease is probably not
too many organiaztions, but a duplica
tion and re-duplication of membership.
