With this issue the Emerald suspends
publication until after the Christmas
vacation. The next issue will he Tues
day, January 0, 1017. The Emerald
wishes a Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year to one and all!
Nothing is better illustrative of the
socializing forces of the modern age than
the frutcrnulism of the fraternities as
they are dispensing Christmas cheer to
the poor children of Eugene tonight.
Something like 1100 of the little men
ami women of tomorrow have been
picked up by auto and whirled to the
gay festive rooms of the Eugene chamber
of commerce. Here a Christmas tree,
a jolly Santa Claus, candy, nuts ami
useful presents make real the idealized
Christmas of the kiddies. To them it is.
“Peace on Earth, Hood Will Toward
Hut to us humans who consider the
world a selfish maelstrom of individuals
this little party tonight is demonstrative
of much that is far from selfishness. In
those little hearts and minds are being
Inculcated ideas of love that only the
snapping, snarling jaws of a selfish world
can blight years filter when they grow
up to meet adversity uncloaked. But
perhaps, who can tell, in this co-opera
tive union of fraternities and Eugene
business men, there is being awakened in
nil of us more fraternalistle and patern
alistic instincts* that little by little shall
bear fruits until the spirit of selfish
Intolerance is no more.
At least fraternalism and Christmas
cheer are synonymous.
THE ELECTION TOMORROW.
The Emerald cannot but believe the
students will vote for the JftO.OOO bonds
tomorrow. 'The question is how big
will the aye majority lie.
There is no excuse for any student
being ignorant of the question. It is

high finance and the Emerald has been
an ardent advocate of the floating of the
bonds only because careful consideration
showed that side the only sensible side
to take. This paper has always been
for the best interests of the student
body and if ever a new field was for the
best interests it is now when many bit
ter experiences with a poor field have
taught the students.
The question really involved is to the
advisability of floating the bonds, there
by involving the student body in a heavy
debt. In this case mature financers,
whose judgment in financial circles is
of consequence and who would reap no
benefits, advise the issue of the bonds.
They are men advanced in years who
have lost none of their love for their
alma mater and are keenly aware of
existing circumstances. Their judge
ment has not been based on the pre
sentation of the matter to them by stu
dents but comes from their own inti
mate knowledge of affairs.
As a, matter of fact the students
wouldn’t lie building this field wholly for
the student body. Its scope is much
broader and the moment the proposition
goes beyond the jurisdiction of the stu
dent body it becomes a University ad
ministrative matter, and as such the re
gents should stand shoulder to shoulder
with the students. This it is understood
the regents are willing to do when the
finances are in such shape as to warrant
them re-iinbursing the students.
In other words tin- student body is
taking the initiative in building a per
manent. athletic field, involving itself
heavily in debt in order to provide the
University with what is recognised as
a vital need. This is provided the bonds
are voted. And it is this way the Emer
ald says the issue of the bonds is advis
able- because the scope is so wide that
it enters the University administrative
jurisdiction and by the silence of the
administrative department acquiescence
and backing is given the undertaking.
The issue is well defined. Now let
tin' aye majority be overwhelming, for
the larger it is the more credit is carried
