iPlu* faculty of the University this year, as perhaps all of
tisJfite aware, have commenced a general program, of tighten-.
upon student. outside work iu an endeavor to raise the
a«£ftjK$tio. standing of the University. Elements in the fac
Hltybody favor seemingly, no outside work whatever outside
of clfcss preparation. The entire faculty have registered them
Strongly against anything but strictly honest class
And the University as a whole has commenced a cam
4*^,to increase the face value of a University degree.
P The faculty have gone ahead with their betterment move
ment, ’regardless of whatever student opinion maght be op
osed to them. For this they are to be admired. They hold
le ultimate ambition of placing a degree from the University
Oregon on a par with that of the highest educational in
itUtion of its class in the country. In attaining this goal,
the heart of every loyal student of the University is with them, j
■l: But the members of* the faculty must be made to realize
touch a goal cannot be realized in a short time. If the
stttflfiients of the shortcomings of the Univedsity as given re
cently by. the new dean of the college of literature, science and
the arts are true, it may take several years to reach the. high
prole Oregon has set for itself.
r In working towards its goal, the University must remem
ber .that a ton-sudden change is likely to work more harm
thhn good. The ideal way to accomplish the desired end is
to have hearty co-operation between the faculty and the stu
dent body. This will never be attained when the students
atoe compelled to bow down to new rules and regulations to
wliich they are unaccustomed, and to old orders and restric
tions that have never been strongly enforced.
•>,Tho student body undoubtedly believes that the scholastic
Standard of the University is safe in the hands of the present
Tjoctilty. In undoubtedly is willing to be led in the right direc
tion, but, it undoubtedly will refuse to be driven. Penalties
hmeadv inflicted by the faculty committees on discipline, pro
putioo, posts and other affairs relating to student seholar
ahip indicate that the latter attitude has been taken by the
The penalties inflicted dunng the war were probably loo
lenient. Butfhe general “tightening up” this year has'Cm le
about too quickly, and there is already considerable saide (it
v^edtunent against, such a quick change. The “tightening up”
improbably needed here at Oregon, but it should come about
fnoro 'gradually. Due notice should be served of all mutters
rot- which penalties will be inflicted. And the penalties in
fhctld at present should not be so radically different from
those of previous years as to cause objection.
Oregon doesn’t want a faculty which it fears. It wants a
•faculty in which it believes, and which it is willing to follow.
■A policy of a more gradual change to better things should be
the policy of the University faculty.
