C. A- delegate to the national convention
In Illinois, and the execution of numer
ous other devices to secure student as
sistance particularly for the Woman’s
building has led to a general feeling on
the campus thnt the work was being
overdone—thnt the undprtrod student is
being hit too often and too hard.
From all sources, particularly among
the men of the University, has come the
continuous and exaggerated complaint
that n student cannot venture forth on
the campus in the morning any more
without about four dollars unless he Is
embarrassed by the demand of some fel
low student who wished to sell him a
hrlck to be used in building something
for the University. The complaints
which have originated during the past
week due to tho large number of finan
cial campaigns being conducted have
been emphasized by the rumor that these
Campaigns were only preliminary to
humorous other money - getting plans
which had been planned.
The student body found needs money

to see it on its feet; It is true thnt the

Professor W. F. G- Thacher makes the
suggestion in another column of the
Emerald today that the proposel me
morial in the memory of Roswell Dosch
be turned into a memorial for all the
University of Oregon men who have
given their lives during the war.
The work now being carried on by
the School of Architecture toward the
erection of the Dosch memorial is a
high honor to Mr. Dosch, and because
of his character and regard for the Uni
\ersity very commendable. It is entire
ly fitting that; a memorial should be
erected on the University of Oregon cam
pus for him. But it is equally true
that a memorial must be erected for the
other men from the faculty and student
body who have made the supreme sac
In view of this, the suggestion made
by Professor Thacher is appropriate. Be
cause of the democratic spirit and gen
erous character of Mr. Dosch, it is
much more fitting that his last and best
work be devoted to a memorial for the
Oregon men who gave up their lives
rather than to put Mr. Doseh’s work to
use only for a memorial to himself.
Surely, there must be a memorial at
Oregon for her men lost in the war, and
It sepms there rotild he no more honor
able use made of Mr. Doscli's work than
to use it not only for a memorial for
himself but for the other Oregon men
who served rh he did. It would be par
ticularly fitting, too, that the memor
ial to the Oregon men should have been
designed by one of their number.
To adopt the suggestion of Professor
Thacher would mean the building of a
bettor monument, and one which could
be unveiled in (he memory of Mr. Dosch
and the other men of Oregon long before
it would liuve been possible were separ
ate memorials to be built.

The Emerald bus noticed llint
of the freshmen nre obeying the ruling
of the student council that green cups
should be replaced by n strip of green
ribbon on the coat lapel where the full
uniform In worn, and that no green cap
bo worn under any circumstances with
the full United States uniform. Are all
the freshmen tn line?
“What Happened to Jones” comes in
an unfortunate time of money-making
campaigns on the campus. But it is
goiug to be worth the money.
To the Editor:
The movement which has for its ob
ject the erection of a suitable memorial
for Boswell Dosch is highly commenda
ble, and should receive the ungrudged
support of everyone who was privileged
to call hij! friend. But I cannot re
press the thought that no movement of
this nature should be confined to the
preservation of the memory of one when
there are so many others to be commem
orated—others of our own boys—mem
bers of the student body, of the alumni,
of the University family. |
I would not say anything that might
in the least way detract from the Dosch
memorial; but I would call attention to
the fact that nothing has been done to ;
express even a sense of loss in the death
of I/eslie Tooze, George Cook, “Pete”
Sexton ami the 14 other men who have
made the final sacrifice. The very least
that the University can do is to hold
a memorial service. This has beeen done
in many colleges, and to have neglected
it so long at the University of Oregon
seems inharmonious with the just pride
that we have taken in our contribution
to the great cause. No college in all
our land has given more generously of
her sons. Is it not fitting, then, that
we, publicly and solemnly, should recog
nize the fact that some of these boys
will never come back?
And further: I would have the Uni
versity—regents, faculty, alumni and
students—begin at once to fnake plans
for a suitable memorial that will stand
imperishably as a witness to our pride
and onr sorrow. There is, I believe, aid
ready a fund for this purpose, given by
the class of 1018. And it is my idea
that the model left by Boswell Dosch
should, in some way. be incorporated
in the memorial. It is beautifully ap
propriate, nnd by its use we shall be
carrying out the spirit nnd intent of its
maker. He modelled the figure to ex
press the spirit of the youth of Oregon.
And I do not think we could do him
greater service than to utilize his last
and most beautiful work in this way.
Boswell lived for others; he died for
others. Cannot the unselfishness, which
was the beauty of his life and character, 1
be more fittingly expressed in a memo
rial for ethers—those boys some of
whom he knew anil loved and who gave
their lives in the same great cause to
which he gave his — than by a memorial
erected for himself alone?

When your shoe heels are worn down at the sides your
ankles must “turn” at every step. New shoes with level
hods correct this, yet at first feel clumsy. But after a few 1
days with the square heels, you have no use for the others.
Like badly shod feet, are constantly strained. Certain
musdes must forever pull to prevent distorted sight.
Make this unnecessary, but the eye-muscles keep tug
ging for a while from force of habit, thus causing the very
distortion they formerly prevented. But the muscles soon
relax and perfect vision Is restored. The strain, too, is gone
and you see naturally and comfortably.
