The Emerald has five points to make
to its readers before they decide whether
or not the Emerald shall be included with
in the prerogative granted by payment of
student body tax. They are:
1. Good business sense dictates a
negative vote on the amendment.
Substantially, the proposed alteration
in the by-laws is the declaration of a divi
dend of one dollar to each student yearly
for all time to come. Such a thing could
not be done at the present time because
the treasury is not in any condition for
It—and this, at the end of a most pros
perous year. Noxtj year and the. years
to come are too uncertain to warrant such
Wait until it !r known how well the
new athletic field will pay and until at
least a pnrt of the $10,000 debt is liquidat
ed before an added burden is assumed.
2. Patriotism to the student body de
mands the dofoat of the measure.
In this time of crisis in national af
fairs, the thinking men of the country,
the conservative, careful, rational minds

sober policy, making certain of each step

To the Editor:
The payment of all student subscrip
tions to the Emerald from the Student
Body Treasury would doubtless pro
duce many good results. The advocates
of a free Emerald have given us many
arguments in its favor, and we have no
reason to believe that many of these ar
guments are not sound.
The question, however, for us to de
cide is not whether this expenditure
would bring good results but rather: Is
this money spent better in this manner
than in any other? At the present time
the Student body is running along at
rock bottom. Our revenues practically
equal our expenditures.
V\ ith such a financial condition the
giving of tree Emerald cbuld have but
one result. It would mean that many
activities that we arc now trying to
foster will be greatly crippled—possibly
killed—on account of a lack of funds.
It will mean that ou hopes for extend
ed activity, and in some instances even
the continuance of present activity along
such lines as wrestling, soccer, tennis,
hockey, etc. will vanish into thin air.
It means this,—and more. It means
that the day will be postponed when we
can realize our long cherished hopes for
tlie support of other activities which in
all justice should have been supported
long ago. A free E ierald may come in
time—but why at this time Why crip
ple the student body treasury at a time
when we have on our campus a just de
mand for increased support and recog
nition of—for instance—the activities
of the Women’s League?
The man or woman who casts a vote
in favor of a free Emerald easts a vote
in favor of robbing these struggling and
shamefully neglected lines of endeavor
in order to pension a strong and healthy
and firmly established activity.

University Orchestra An All-Student
Organization for First Time in History
(By Gladys Wilkins)
The University orchestra, for the iirst i
time in its history an all student organ- j
ization, will appear in concert in Villard
hall on the evening of Thursday, March
Composed this year of eighteen mem- '
hers, the orchestra is thought to be '
better balanced than in former years.
“We’re not an organization of stars,” j
said Miss Winnifred Forbes, director.
“There are no doubt many of the mem
bers who would not play particularly
well alone. But it is the ensemble that
counts—whether or not you start to
gether, stop together, and hit the same
notes together. And our ensemble is
good. The first v; din selection is es
[vcially strong, and three of the four
players are music majors—Alice Van
der Sluis, Genevieve Rawley, and Viola ,
Part of the students who are doing i
orchestra work began their musical ca- S
reers at the age of ten or twelve, part
of them waited until two or three J ears
ago to begin. It is evident that they j
are not a professional crew. But any
one who attended Mask and Buskin's
installation vaudeville will admit that
they play the most delightful music,
full of melody both popular, semi-popu
lar and classical music, and music lovers
will have an opportunity to hear the
orchestra at its best in both kinds, since
they are holding numerous extra rehear
Miss Forbes and Robert Scearce will
repeat the “Serenade” which was re
ceived so enthusiastically when they
played it during a recent reception given
in honor of the Daughters of American
Revolution. Mr. Scearce is considered
one of the best violinists in the orches
The personnel includes:
First violins: Alice Van der Sluis,
Genevieve Rawley, Robert Scearce, Vi
ola Crawford; second violin: Adah Mc
Murphy, Franklin Folts, Bryon Gar
rett, Lucy Powers, Lillian Boylen; cel
lo: Glen Macey; piano: Marth'a Tinker;
flute: French Moore; clarinet: Loren
Butler; cornets: Harold Simpson, Mor
ris Morgan; trombone: Walter Grebe;
drums: Lee Bown; tympani: Maurice

I them in time of war.
Pour garages have offered their ser
vices for the purpose of teaching the
girls the mechanism and running of
automobiles. These are the Fifth

Dodge Auto Co., and the Pacific gar- I
age. An additional attraction at the !
Sweet Drain Auto Co. is a stripped
