■ “Of lust term’s students, some fourteen are taking an ex
tended vacation at the invitation of the faculty,’’ says the <).
A. C. Barometer. “O. A. C. is no place for loafers, and the
sooner nil such realize this, the better for the college.”
Well, Oregon’s faculty declined to teach higher education
to eighteen students, and in addition placed 126 on proba
tion. That might be something for us to brag about if we
were so inclined. Here’s Oregon and 0. A. 0. both raising
their scholastic standards, as befits state institutions after
the people of the state have voiced their confidence in Ore
gon's higher educational institutions through the medium of
the millagc bill, and Oregon, with less than half the enroll
ment of 0. A. 0., succeeds in ejecting eighteen students for
failure to make the required number of hours, while the Cor
vallis institution misses but fourteen.
Of course it is self-evident that Oregon is raising its
scholastic standard much quicker than 0. A. C„ judging from
tko number of these who failed to Jive up to the higher re
quirements. And we hold no brief for those eighteen who are
Udt with us now. We do sympathize with those 126 who are
on probation, and avc hope for some future remedy that will
eliminate the probation disease. But the absence of the
eMtnteeu will not be missed very much. As 0. A. C. is no
place for loafers, neither is Oregon. So much better for the
But it just comes to us that maybe the faculty of the Uni
versity are endeavoring to raise the scholastic standards of
the University requesting more students to leave school than
the Corvallis institution, ami thus being able to say that the
University has a higher standard than the College.
We believe in a Greater Oregon, and we believe that rais
ing the scholastic standard of the University is a means to
that end. But let’s not point with pride to those who were!
naked to leave school and sav: ‘‘Here’s the evidence.” Let’s
rhthor make the entrance requirements such that no hopeless
iptifcr may enter the University, and if one acquires the awful
lihbit here let’s give him all possible opportunities and all
possible aid to effect a cure before we send him on Ins way.
A week ago, the Emerald urged the athletic department
of the University to get into close personal touch with prep
school athletes throughout t.he state, believing that personal
friendship with the coaches and trainers at Oregon would do
more to bring the high school athletes to Oregon than many
other inducements. A former editor of the Emerald lias writ
ten that he also believes that such a procedure on the part
nf Oregon’s athletic staff would bear fruitful results. Let’s
tql our athletic department about the men we know, and
have them get into personal touch with the prep students
We point with pride to the Emerald’s announcement col

BEHOLD: THE PROF.
To the Editor:
/There are instructors and instructors;
tfcair name is legion. They tali into two
great classes; those who "know" the stu
dent uiiud, and those who haven’t got
that way yet. Tile former group occa
sionally inhabits the classroom. but most
times they range abroad, lecturing on
aueh vital topics as "The Mental Sub
luxation of the College Invertebrate: He
lot the Truth About Freshmen." (.tr such
a« "Tbe Impingement and Osmosis of
Occasional phenomena on the Medulla
Oblongata; or How Sometimes an Idea
Expressed in Words of Cess than Two
Syllables Does Sink Through." This
grpup habitually carry about a bored
and disgusted air, leading one to believe
that tor a nominal sum they would jump
iii tlio lake and cud tin1 whole silly at
tempt. After listening to one of them
•speak on the subject of American educa
tion one is firmly convinced that if the
ivory crop in Africa should die of
drought some season it could be entirely
replaced by the Triple Star Choice Bone
heads that graduate each year from our
higher institutions. Kvideutly they have
never heard of a grade above III. At
least they never profane their pens by
I “writing a higher grade.
The second class say nothing and saw
wood. They have a childish faith in us
for sonic reason or other, and often!
pump out surprising amounts of infor
l mation from their classes. They seem to
live normal, healthy lives, evidently eat
! regularly, and get eight hours of sleep,
for they come to class in the mornings in
a fairly good temper. They shave, have
their hair cut occasionally, and often be
lieve in a few things implicitly. One oc
casionally sees them perusing magazines
of lesser distinction and lighter digestibil

liked hamburger well smothered with
onions and plenty of tomato ketchup -
“ketchup” Mas the term he used, not
“sauce.” Young Democracy rests safe in

Some instructors you can tell at a
glance, while you would never suspect:
others of being remotely connected with
the Higher Knowledge unless you had
heard them proclaim it. Some are ortho
dox. some are not. The other day 1 was
passing by the statue of the Pioneer.
Suddenly 1 saw him sway slightly on his
pedistat. Then a great thunder passed:
over my head, followed by a huge gust j
of wind. Turning toward a building l!
perceived the upper windows of a class-1
room bulging outward, the panes of j
which were shattered. After a few mo-1
meats I made out, in the thunder and!
wind, a voice . a voice that rose and]
fell like a dashing of waves on the rocks!
of the sen shore—like the swell and fall
of a mammoth organ, 1 stopped a passer
by and inquired:
What is that, marvelous instrument
in yon building which sounds so much
like a man’s voice, only magnified a hun
dred times V"
Me cupped his hand to his car and
asked for a repeat. 1 repeated.
"Oh." lie said in a sad, sad tone,
tis Professor X. It was in his class
that 1 lost my hearing; it was the day
he was lecturing on conservation of
energy, I remember well he had just!
repeated the old saying: ’speech is gold-1
en.' then 1 heard a dap of thunder; since j
then 1 have been deaf." And the poor
creature hobbled off down the road. j
Then on another day 1 saw a man
»t riding down the campus, dressed in
loose, flowing garments, not of the just
ly famed form-fitting type. He walked
with head bowed, eyes fixed on the
ground. It appeared as if lie had lost
something and were searching for it. He
crossed a street, narrowly escaping from
walking into an automobile, so busy was
he looking for his lost treasure. My heart
contracted with pity and I ran after him.
"What have you lost, sir? Pray tell
me. and we two will look for it."
He gave me a very sharp look. "Lost?
Lost t Pish. Tush. I have lost nothing.
Absolutely nothing at ail, I repeat. I am
professor and I am contemplating the
glories of nature about mo.”
