Whether or not the appointing of all student managers
by the new Executive Council will remove those offices from
politics is one of the. big questions which must be answered
by the students before they vote on the new plan of student
government which will be submitted) next week. The idea is
U complete innovation, inasmuch as it affects offices which
in the past have been elective by the entire student body, by
the members of some smaller body, or appointive by student
officers or employes.
Under the proposed plan, the recommendations for the
student managers would probably be made by one of the vari
ous activity committees appointed by the Executive Council,
the baseball committee recommending the manager for that
sport, the publications committee the managers of campus
publications, and so forth. Such a plan is possible, and seems
capable of working out as intended). It should take the of
fices out of politics.
With an executive committee consisting of six student
members, there is a possibility of the power falling into the
hands of a clique, and by their domination, the best men avail
able might not always be appointed as student managers. That
is a possibility, not a probability, and students must realize
this liefore they vote.
It is unfair to say that there is a possibility for a poor
man to become a manager under the present elective system.
Usually onl) men fully qualilied dare to run, and the recom
mendation of the retiring manager usually goes a long way
tow aids electing a successor, particularly if the one retiring
has been successful. The appointive system, if adopted, would
lay the Executive Council open to charges of favoritism, as
is always the case with appointive positions, while where those
posts are made elective, the public has none but itself to
The fact that three members of the faculty, one of whom
is to be an alumnus, as well as one other alumni member, are
to have voting powers on the new Executive Council, if adopt
ed by the students, is a fairly safe assurance that that body
will act wisely and impartially in appointing student man
agers. lint again faculty and alumni members are often un
able to get the viewpoint of students because of press of other
business and other reasons.
The graduate manager of the University of Washington,
recently returned from a tour of eastern colleges, recom
mends a competitive system for aspirants for managerial
positions, the candidate competing during his sophomore year,
and acting as assistant during his junior year. In this way
lull training is given, and no charge of favoritism could be
made. Such a method might well be looked into by the com
mittee laying plans for the new system.
There are quite a few students who would like to see
soccer a real sport at Oregon. All those in favor turn out for
Did it ever occur to students that Oregon songs when
sung at athletic contests are absolutely spoiled by the hamt
clapping ot rooters. rl he hand-clapping drowns the singing,
which would have a much better effect alone.. It is all right
for ordinary marches when played by the baud, but it doesn't
mix well with voices.

COLOR AND ART.
To the Editor:
Personally )I like just plain meat and
potatoes, and, for dessert, stewed prunes,
baked beaus, or some sueh robust fruit.
I care not at all for those delicacies
which are not 100 per cent American.
Which shows what an uncouth clod I am.
It is tlio same in art. Somehow my taste J
has never been educated up and beyond]
the primary stage. Now 1 suppose cas
ual but exclamatory patches of verdigris
blue on the erstwhile women’s building
are considered artistic, lint it looks to
mo as if that structure was coming down
with a virulent case of blue measles.
l’ossibly the intermittent daubs of
color are indicative of the future pur
pose of the edifice—a home for daubers^

I commend the obviously impressionistic
motif. Perhaps the variegated effect is
to denote that art appreciation is
taught therein, and again I say the re
lation of the outward camouflage to the
inner camouflage is remarkably effective.
But, to borrow a phrase from the
wise Solomon, if that’s art I’m a plumb
er. Let me hasten to add that I am not
trying to cast aspersions on the plumbing
In these days of Bolshevik tendencies
all the stable and reliable things litvye
gone by the boards. They don’t even
make the orthodox doughnut with the
conventional hole any more, and Ivory
soap no longer floats with its accustomed
carefree and insouciant abandon; Bon
Ami scratches; and there’s too much
Turkish in a certain cigarette. So I
suppose in art the primary colors have
passed out of fashion.
Another conjecture. May it not be
—this color scheme—for the purpose of
shocking the eight o’clock classes into
some semblance of life? If so I proph
esy that it will be phenomenally suc
cessful. t)r maybe the person entrust
ed with the building decorations had a
! touch of spring fever and simply could
not resist the urge to put the vernal
tint (I will not commit myself to the
name of the specific color) on the aut
umn brick-brown. Or maybe some old
ship’s painter was entrusted with the
job and as the good craft was in the dry
dock for a time (paregorically speaking)
he followed the established procedure
of smearing on a coat of copper barn
We must he true to art. That is the
one great truth. We must never dally
or compromise with the expression of
the inner feeling. If the hidden voice
demands that a dill pickle blue be the
official color of the art building why
then a dill pickle blue she is. Upon a
close observation one finds several
minor shades on the moldings and balus
trades and what nots. No doubt each
campus artist (official artist) has con
tributed his bit — thus making the de
lightful ensemble, which surely can not
be said to lack originality. It’s so hard
to be original in this advanced age.
They are to be congratulated on having
I am not sure that I exactly grasp the
symbolism of .these decorations. My
first mental reaction is to be suddenly
reminded of moldy Camembert and mud
dy coffee. But maybe that is the ef
fect they desire to produce. Who are
we—us laymen—to criticize or judge
those who serve art?
Art is funny—almost as funny as
those who follow after it.
