With its slogan “save 11,000,000
loaves of bread a day.” a committee of
sixty has been formed in New York City
to promulgate war prohibition propagan
da. The committee cites three big reasons
for prohibition as a war necessity ; name
ly, food, efficiency and health. The presi
dent of the committee is Prof. Irving
Fisher, of economics of Yale Univer
sity, and numbered as his associates are
some of the most prominent educational
men of the United Stntes.
When soundpd for his opinion in the
matter of wartime prohibition Major
General William Harding Carter, U. S.
A., said :
"With the declaration of war with
Germany, and the enactment of the se
lective draft law, we have assumed ob
ligations whose ultimate ends no man
can forsee. Primarily we have now be
come responsible for the preparation of
hundreds of thousands of young men for
the item duties and hardships of war,
and, in the natural order of things, they
will constitute the human element avail
able for the nation’s defense for many
years to come. The nation owes it to the
young men who nre selected for military
training and service that, from the very
first they shall know that the training
will be carried on under circumstances
"The development of minds and bodies
to meet the demands of military service
in war requires not. only the most mod
ern hygienic surroundings but the ab
^sence of every form of personal dissipa
tion. Any one who sells or gives intoxi
cants or drugs of any kind to young men
undergoing training for the nation's de
fense, not only commits a crime against
the Individual but a treasonable act
against the nation."
Major-General Carter looks at the
matter in the light of the demoralizing
effect drunkenness has fin an army.
There Is however another point of view
which the committee takes and that is
the utilization of the breweries and the
alcohol, not for extravagances ns has
been the case In the past, but for war
time necessities, such as ether, explo
sives. fuel, dyes, medicinal purposes and
The workmen's compensation Inw in
Oregon is spreading in its scope rapidly.

The Emerald banquet, the final reward
to the Emerald staff workers, is schedul
ed for the night of the last publication.
The. test of the bids to the banquet is
the work done by the members who have
been on the staff during the year. Solo
mon once said : "The soul of the sluggard
deslreth, and hath nothing; but the soul
of the diligent shall he made fat." So
may it be.
At this time of national crisis when
the food question is a perplexing prob
lem and the food speculator renps the
profits and becomes the bloated pluto
crat, the words of Solomon in Proverbs
11 :2rt stand out ns a burning brand:
"lie that withholdeth corn, the people
shall curse him; hut blessings shall be
upon the head of him that selleth it.”

Former Editor Adds Bit of Weekend His
tory; Tells How Old Observatory Gave Way
May 13th, 1017.
Editor, Oregon Emerald:
Dear Sir: As an Alumnus (Class of
’06) and former editor of the Oregon
Weekly (now Oregon Emerald), will you
permit me to add a word to the article
in the May 12th issue on the history of
Junior Week-end Fete?
Members of the class bf 1900 will
heartily agree with the statement that
the present plan of constructive work
came with President Campbell, but I re
member correctly, the class of 1906 was
the first class to abolish the annual
Junior Day, flag-flying fight, and substi
tute its stead a program of construc
tive betterment work. Of course, as
Juniors, naught.v-six snw to it that then
own flag wns duly flown on Junior Day,
but when they became Seniors, they sat
down upon and denounced the boyish
custom of the annual flag fight between
the Juniors and Sophs.
The first Junior Day, therefore, to
be celebrated by constructive work, was
in the year 1906. when the Senior class
organized the varsity forces for the
several tasks accomplished. The ‘‘old
shack on top of Skinner's Butte” refer
red to, was a formidable brick building,
built and used in former years ns the
astronomical observatory of the Univer
sity. The demolition of this structure

(far from a ‘'shack”) occupied the at
tention of a large detachment of Engi
neering students, who were obliged to
use dynamite and a huge battering ram to
tear down the massive brick walls.
On the first real Junior Day, too,
under the direction of the ’06's, the long
grass was mowed with scythes and
raked from all parts of the campus ex
cept the then meagre lawns. The wooden
bleachers and sidewalks on Kincaid
Field were erected, and some 400 feet
of wooden mains were laid from the
campus to Athletic Field. The writer
recalling the latter task vividly as he
was master plumber in charge of it.
These were some of the things ac
complished on that day, as well as the
laying of the first section of cement

Trainer '‘Bill” Hayward was on the
job on Junior Day in 1900, and gave
valuable directions and assistance in
tearing down the brick observatory on
Skinner’s Butte. He was also in evi
dence on ^(»tker parts of the “public
work” that day, and can verify the fore

WANTED: STUDE SPEAKER
Newport Veterans Ask for Memorial
Newport wants a “Jive-wire Univer
sity of Oregon boy” for speaker on Dec
oration day. The war veterans, who are
in charge of the program have written
asking the extension division where such
an appeal is a novelty, to fill the bill.
Nick Janreguy, president of the stu
dent body and varsity debate man, was
selected for the address but his recent
appointment to the officers’ reserve
camp at Presidio makes it impossible for
him to accept. Another student will
probably be appointed by Director Kil
patrick, of the extension division, when
he returns from San Francisco tonight.
