DISLOYALTY TO THE LAW
Nabbed by the cont In pel we were
lgnotniniously shunted into the limelight
the other day by n law professor ns ho
pronounced us disloyal to the law school
and the University. lie was vitriolic in
his terms and was prone to wax most
eloquent as the students passed to and
from their clnsses. Without endeavoring
to make answer to him then we. learned
the specific charge and promised answer,
even ns a judge might consider well.
It seems the Emerald published two
stories, one Tuesday, October 3, 101(5,
which was a communication from Lamar
Tooze, former student body president and
now at Harvard law school, who after
comparing the spirit of Oregon with that
of Harvard generalizes with a brief des
cription of the law school itself. The story
was headed, "Oregon’s Democracy Can
not lie Equaled.” The second story was
printed Thursday, January 11, 1017, and
was based on a letter from n graduate
of the University now attending a grad
uate school and in which he speaks well
of the graduate, work.
We have been careful to get the point
of view of the University professor and
his objections to the stories and we find
they are that the Emerald has no right
to publish any matter pertaining to other
universities in which it speaks in praise
worthy terms of those institutions. For
this, in the mind of the professor, woidd
be rank disloyalty and treason of the
worst kind. Further, contends the pro
fessor of law, the University is attempt
ing to build up n graduate school and
all Oregon students should attend the
Univ' rsity of Oregon and no other, and
It is wrong for any student upon grad
uation to leave Oregon to attend a grad
uate school elsewhere. In other words
a student’s first duty is to remain at his

We do not uncover this professor’s
record for a bit of childish humor, but
rather to bring out a point we have
harped upon before — provincialism.
Uarlier in the year we derided the Uni
versity of California for its provincial
ism and criticised the exclusive atmos
phere tlin't hung over nil the coast col
leges and universities. We have blamed
it upon ignorance of students as to other
colleges and universities. How often do
we hear, “Why I never heard of that
school,” and “What is Taussig?” or “Is
Yale in Alabama?”
The students go to the universities
and colleges of their choice and there re
main for four years. Unless they are ex
ceptions they follow only the prescribed
course of study and know no more about
the different sections of this United
•States than they did before they came to
be “educated”. Let everyone become as
provincial as such students and how long
would it be that sectional boundaries of
this nation would be far more sharply de
fined than they are now!
What Oregon needs is not for her grad
uate students to stay here. It is for
them to get away—get far, far away.
Likewise should their places lie taken
at the University by those easterners who
do not know any more about the west
than that it is a wild and wooly place
filled}! with oowpunehers, bears and In
THE PURPOSE OF THE SIGMA
There is no profession and no business
possession as fine a standard of ethics
and morality as does journalism. Neith
er are there any forms of modern en
deavor conducted with stall a percentage
of accuracy. Few are ns efficient. There,
is no profession, neither is there any
calling, which enters so continuously, so
eternally, so universally and so entirely
into the lives of the world’s population
as does journalism. This very fact ren
ders its ethics, efficiency and accuracy
the more remarkable.
With a completeness that is extend
ing daily, the proas of this country is be
ing controlled by practical idealists. The
demand for such men is increasing with
tln> growing professional qualities ami
tendencies of newspaper work. It is with
the hope of helping to supply this de
mand, of sending the college-trained
newspaper men of the United States out
to their great public work with higher
ideals and clearer insights, that Sigma
l Vita Chi exists. The future is the ob
ject ol the endeavor of this organization ;
not the future of its members but the
future of a great profession.—,f. /).

THREE MORE GAMES
TO EIJSD SE8S0!
Oregon Basketball Quintet Has
Row of Zeros Thus
Only throe more games remain to he
played before the requiem is sung on the
most unsuccessful intercollegiate basket
ball season Oregon ever experienced.
The team meets the University of
Washington five in Seattle on Thursday
and Friday nights, February 22 and 23,
in its second series of the year. Sat

Despite the fact that all the dope
points to the continuation of the past
defeats there is a fair chance of the boys’
breaking their long string of ostrich
eggH. Bezdek has been putting the team
through the stiffest kind of scrimmage
ever since the Washington games in an
effort to break into the win column.
Coach Bezdek is holding out hopes that
his charges may bag at least one victory,
or possibly two, out of the remaining
Cate and Hollis Iltintiugtn at for
wards, McCready at center, with Shy
Huntington and Fox doing duty, is the
combination that has been working to
gether for the past two weeks. Dick
Nelson has been doing relief duty at
center, with Sims and Carl Nelson sub
stituting at guard.
Oregon will be prepared to meet Wash
ington’s long-passing game when the two
fives tangle at Seattle. Bezdek has been
coaching the team to meet this attack
which they found so hard to handle in
the games on the local floor. The
Varsity is depending on a dribbling, long
shot game to sag the net. The men are
too inexperienced to use the short, clever,
underhand pass to any degree of effec
Multnomah Club will be a hard nut to
crack. The scarlet and white is repre
sented by one of the 1 est teams in its
history. Clayton Sharp and Bob Morton,
former Oregon basketball men of two
years ago, are both playing with the
Portlanders. Washington State has been
tin' only team able to defeat them so far.
'l'lie Oregon Aggies were practically
eliminated from the race for the coast
title by their defeat at the hands of the
W. S. C. quintet last Friday night.
Coach Holder's men easily vanquished
the Aggies, after their California in
vasion, which was profitable to the ex
tent of an even break with California
and two victories over Stanford. Wash
ington State has the upper hand in the
conference race at present.
Next Friday and Saturday (4. A. C.
tangles with Washington in Seattle. The
Corvallis men will board a steamer for
California immediately after the games
to play California and Stanford. Past
performances indicated the Aggies are
due for a double licking by the “Bears”
but ought to grab at least one of the
two games with Stanford. Should the
above happen California will be tied with
Washington State for the 1017 Coast

Two Places on Co-ed Team
Now Open to Com
The wording of the question to be used
in both the O. A. C. and Stanford de
1 utes has just been reeeiveci. The heading
is as follows: “Resolved, that the method

disputes involving one hundred or more

.far,reguy. Mr. Fleischmann debated
against the Stanford representatives
last year. Mr. Jaureguy holds the Alumni
medal for debating as well as having the
distinction of being the only man in col
lege awarded the forensic shield.
The O. A. C. debate will take place
March 2. Vivian Kellems and Walter
Myers will debate on the affirmative side
at Corvallis. The negative will be defend
ed here by Don Davis and either Walter
Bailey or Lewis Beebe. Oregon has an
almost unbroken record against O. A. C.
Miss Kellems will be the second woman
to take part in the regular collegiate de
bates. Lust year Rosalind Bates and
Walter Myers obtained a unanimous de
cision in their debate. »
The tryouts for the co-ed debate with
the University of Washington will take
place February 23. Two plnces will be
open to competition. The girls making
the team will take the trip to Seattle
about the first week in May.
Dean A. R. Priest, debating coach, of
the University of Washington, has word
ed the question, which reads ns follows:
“Resolved, that the constitution of the
United States should be amended so ns
to insure equal suffrage for men and wo
men in all the states of the union.”
Oregon has the right to choose the
side of the question which she prefers.
Conch R. W. Prescott says lie will be
ready to announce the choice within a
week. But this will in no way interfere
with the tryout as the girls may take
either side they wish.
The co-eds expecting to try out should
see Coach Prescott at once. The
speeches will not be longer than ten min
utes and the length of the rebuttal will
be arranged after all the contestants
have registered. No previous debating
experience is necessary, the debaters will
lie judged solely on individual ability.
A number of senior girls who expect
to go into the Failing and Beckman ora
torical contests have signified their in
tention of entering the debate tryout.
Whether they make the team or not this
will give them added experience.
“It is an excellent plan,” said Coach
Prescott. “I advise all the women who
expect to enter the commencement con
