The Frosh G lee will he given on February 4, and the ex
pense will probably not exceed $300. There will be no as
sessments for the freshman class; and’ the dance will be staged
with the best possible music, one of the most elaborate feat
ures ever arranged for any dance, appropriate programs and
simple yet adequate decorations. Not one essential of a suc
cessful class dance has been left out by the committee in charge
in making the revised budget for the affair to conform with
the popular demand.
No one can blame the first year men for wanting to stage
an elaborate dance. This is their first year at Oregon, and
evefy freshman is anxious to show the upperclassman that
his class is capable and willing to do things which are allotted
to him in the best possible manner. That is but “Oregon
Spirit/’ » »
The Frosh Glee of last year was one of the most expensive
dances ever given by any class in the history of the Univer
sity. In arranging for their dance this year, the freshmen
entirely lost sight of the fact that the sophomore class gave
their classs dance this fall for less than $200. In asking for a
check on proposed expenditures the students have had these
things in view. First, they were unwilling to say to the peo
ple of the state that $350 would not pay for a dance for the
students of the University of Oregon- Second, they were un
willing to sec any class of students of this institution pay an un
necessary assessment when the class fee paid' at the first of
the year was intended to finance the activities of the class
throughout the year. Third, they thought it unreasonable,
and still do, that dances at the University of Oregon should
cost as much as it seemed the Frosh Glee was going to cost.
The people of the state now know that a dance can be
given for all the students of the University of Oregon for less
than $350, and for less than $200, which Was approximately
itlle cost of the sophomore dance this year. The freshmen
will not be asked to pay a special assessment. The high cost
of going to college will not be increased bv compulsory as
sessment to bo used for nothing but class dances.
If it is necessary for special class assessments late in the
year, for things which are fitting and necessary, it is only
reasonable that any class levy a special assessment.' Dances
can be given for a reasonable amount of money.
Hardened Salt Objects to Subjecting
Himself to Drowning Peril In
Tank In Poaee-Timo.
“I made eight trips across the Atlan
tic ocean during the war without getting
drowned, und these gym instructors have
another guess coming if they think I’m |
going into the swimming pool and drown
tnyself in pence times.”
This statement was made by an ex
gob in the men’s gym Monday evening
rthen the gym instructor, in compliance
with orders from the physical education
department, requested all the men taking
(he 1 o’clock iutnumual sports to jump
[nto 'in tank and demonstrate their
beq atie prowess. The former deep-sea
salt suid lie had been in the 1. S. X,
nearly two years hut explained that
swimming parties were not in order.
V hen he was r - ard a battleship in the
winter of 1917. and later as a member
|of the Armed Guard Detail he was not
jeompeLhd to i volve aquatic abilities, lie
j Intimated that he once took an icy
plunge into the big pond, hut a life
preserver saved him useless exertion
juntil a rait drifted his way.
| Monday evening another ex-sailor al
jKo approached the instructor when the
duen were lined qi taking their exhibi
tion plunges, asked him to check off his
faille from the roll since he could not
^sw itu und permit him to go out and
loluy basketball. The instructor infers (
flnit a deep-sea tragedy is likely to he:,
«tuged in the swimming tank in the im- '
(mediate future.

To the Editor:
I noticed, about the beginning of the
year, that the Emerald, 'editorially, call
ed the attention of the professors to
the injustice of holding their classes
after the bell rings. The professors
took kindly to the suggestion, and for
a month or so, most of the University
classes were dismissed on schedule time.
This term, however, there seems to
have been a general relapse to the old
order, and classes are wont to go mer
rily on after the gong sounds and stu
dents continue to be late to the follow
ing recitations.
Consider the case of the freshman who
has a 10 o’clock class in Villard or
Deady hall. He is held five minutes
overtime: It becomes a physical impos
sibility for him to get to the It. O. T.
O. barracks by eleven o’clock, get into
his uniform, and into ranks by the time
companies are formed. He is given de
merits for being late.
Instructors are generally fastidious on
the matter of being at class on time.
Should not this same exactitude extend
to the length of the class hour? As long
as we run on a system, why make that
System obsolete?
It is noticeable that a better class
spirit is found where the instructor is as
prompt to dismiss his class as he is tp
call the roll.

To the Editor:
Since the announcement in the Emer
ald of the addition to their estimable
force of one E. J. H., the Campus Cynic,
we have been waiting with intellectual
anticipation some mighty pronounce
ment from his pen. At last it has come!
With keen insight into the momentous
affairs of the world, with a remarkable
analysis of its needs and problems, and
with a sympathetic appreciation of the
spirit and ideals of these men who are
spending their fortunes and their lives in
meeting these needs and problems, the
cynic has produced the naive classic en
titled, “Missionaries to Kooflestan.”
There is undoubtedly a place on the
campus for a cynic of more 'than sopho
moric ability. There is possibily a paral
lel condition in the great world outside
which, in order to be treated with real
constructive criticism, must be approach
ed by one of wide experience and deep
insight into the complex problems of so
ciety. With such a task before him the
Cynic has bravely assumed the prophetic
role. In spite of a manifestly immature
outlook on life, in spite of a world knowl
edge limited to experience with A. E. F.
in spite of an educational equipment to
tally inadequate to 'the colossal task
before him, E. J. H. has seized for him
self the place of “Campus Cynic” un^pr
which caption he feels ably qualified
to criticize such movements as that to
which “The eminent missionary who was
on the campus yesterday” is giving hi:
(fortune and his life. George Sherwood
Eddy needs no defense.
However, let 11s repeat that there is
undoubtedly a place on the campus for a
cynic of ability. E. .T. H. has yet to
prove his right to such a place. Lest
however, we fall into the same error of
mere thoughtless criticism, may we urge
that some of the very evident campus
problems, which demand construe
tive thought, be discussed in his column.
Unless, of course, there iq no real pur.
pose behind the pen of the “Campus
