Under pressure from those advocating
the sale of tobacco in the students’
co-operntive store an issue has forced
itself upon the directors. This store,
owned and regulated by the student
body, confines itself wholly to student
business. And when the plan for the
store was broached last spring it read
ily found favor and the desire for such
a store was expressed in the vote of
the students. And based upon plans
as followed in other universities this
new institution was inaugurated this
fall as a student body enterprise.
When the stock was selected
for the opening of business tobacco was
barred from the shelves. This was the
result of the subtile stigma attached to the
use of tobacco. But now come forward
those who advocate the sale of tobacco
in the store, and the (iiiestion comes up
to the directors for final decision
whether or not this shall be done.
In opening for business the co-opera
tive store undertook to supply to the
students those necessities actually de
manded in the classroom, laboratory and
athletic activities. There was also placed
in stock a few leaders, such ns penants,
rooters’ hats, inexpensive candies and
popular jewelry. And as the stock now
stands it is made up of necessities and
those articles which go hand in hand with
the life of every student in his four
years at the University.
The question then of expediency in
placing tobacco in the co-operative store
is doubtful. Neither is tobacco a neces
sity nor does it go band in hand with
the University life of every student. If
then tobacco were placed upon the
shelves aH a leader it would he placed
ns a leader for a minority of the stu
dents. And if there is a catering to
u few is it right to discriminate and
not cater to another few with some oth
er line? And if the store begins this
policy of catering to a few it is involving
itself in an endless chain and will invite
upon itself trouble galore. Fur cannot
our sweet lassies advocate and demand
just as well the sale of talcum powder
and powder puffs?
And pnssng up that angle, would it
be expedient to soli tobacco with the
financial status of the store as it is at
present? To stock up with brands such
as tin- varied tastes would demand would
involve an expenditure wholly incom
patible with the present policy of the
management. And a chap who is after
n smoke is not going to walk ten blocks
to make a purchase when there is a to
bacco stand in his vicinity. As a result
the placing of tobacco i.\ the store would
be a hit and miss proposition.
Front the point of expediency
alone it is inadvisable to place tobacco
upon the shelves of the store. And be
cause of the inexpediency it does not
seem necessary to carr.t the question to

The placing of n junior in the posi
tion of yell leader has caused no little
discussion. It is a high pedestal for a
junior to he sure but if he can top
the boots he is the man for the job.
The question of whether or not a senior
should be in the place is not a question
that should concern the students so long
as the right chap is in the place. What
should be done is to heave to for the
king-pin of the rooting season and give
him a little of the excess cayenne

0. A. C. ROLL IS GROWING
U. of Oregon Has Slight Advantage in
Percentage of Increase.
The University of Oregon this year
has an increase in attendance equal
to that of the Oregon Agricultural col
lege. Rased on the percentage basis
and reckoning with only the students
registered in college, a gain of over Id
per cent is shown over tin* registration
of last year.
At Corvallis the increase is almost
as great as this running nearly Id per
cent. Old students have registered in
th<' University so far this year, and at
O. A. C. 1435 have enrolled.
The increase in freshmen attendance
shows also a marked increase in the two
institutions. Taking them as nearly as
they can In reconed at the present time,
the increase at both places is about -3
