KNOW THE CONSTITUTION.
The revised constitution, as printed in yesterday’s Emer
ald, with the explanations made in assembly yesterday, should
make it possible for every student to say either “I believe in
it,” or ‘‘I am against it.” The student who still persists in
saying “I don’t know anything about it,” is a poor Oregon
student indeed, for not caring to take enough time to find out
about his government and how it is conducted.
, The revised constitution will be adopted by the as
sociated students next Thursday. It, is doubtful if anyone can
fail to realize the great improvement of the new pact over the
old, or can fail to understand the need of the associated stu
dents for a budget system and a centralized government, as
provided for in the new constitution.
There are, perhaps, sections or clauses to which objec-1
tion may be taken by a few. But the main idea of the new
constitution must not be sacrificed because of the minor
points. If they are wrong, and it is improbable that the re
visions committee could have drawn up a constitution which
would satisfy everyone, amendments may be made at any
It will be noticed in reading over the revised pact, that
the acts of any officers or of any body may be amended by a
majority vote of the students present at any meeting of the
associated students. Article XV, which contains this sec
tion, tjius protects the interests of the students. No body,
however small, may do anything directly against the will of
, There is no excuse for ignorance of the contents of the
new constitution. It concerns every activity of the associated
students and affects every student, particularly if he partici
pates in any student activity, or plans to do so during his stay
in the University. Familiarize yourself with the main points,
so that you can know whereof you speak when you announce
yourself either “for” or “against” the new constitution.
Kincaid field seems to be getting into shape for the track
athletes fairly fast, with the assistance of several ablebodied'
frosh every day. But how about Hayward field ? Will it be
ready for the coast conference meet ?
If A. S. U. O. meetings were held oftener, perhaps we
would all be wearing some award.

FRENCH SKIT GIVEN
AT CLUB GATHERING
Members of Group Shine As Dramatists
Although Speaking Foreign
“A Doctor iu Spite of Himself” “Le
Medicin Malgre Lui” was the clever
French comedy produced by members of
i the French club at the regular meeting
(Tuesday evening at the Y. W. C. A. bun
galow. Those who took advantage of the
invitation of the club had an opportunity
to see that English is not the only lan
guage in which campus dramatic talent
expresses itself, as the entire play was
spoken in French.
Marion Gilstrap as Martino and Joe In
gram as her husband, Sgnarelle, excelled
in the quarrel scene where they hurled
epitaphs in vociferous French.
A very charming part was that played
by Helen Enoch ns the patient of the
would-be doctor. All of the parts were
well sustained in character presentation.
The play was under the direction of
Mademoiselle Gouy, instructor in French.
The characters are as follows:
Sgnarelle. ..Toe Ingram

2 HIT PRODIGIES
LOCATED in EUGENE
Mental Tests Reveal Geniuses
4 and 8 Years Old.
Eugene has some exceptionally bright
children as well as New York and Bos
ton. Work in connection with the re
search in mental testing classes under
Dr. B. W. DeBusk lias revealed this in <
the case of two children. The tests
fvere conducted by Ruth Montgomery,
graduate student in the school of edu
Elizabeth, four years old, in chron
ological age, lias a mental age of over
seven, and an intelligence quotient of
172, which puts her in the genius class.
She does not go to school, but she can
print her name, copy anything, write all
the numbers, and count up to one hun
dred. She can write on the typewriter.
She knows all the names of singers from
graphophone records, and can tell the
singer from hearing the record. Besides j
all this, she is very strong and well, j
and her physical development is perfect, j
Janet who was tested at the Patterson I
school last year, is eight years and six j
months in chronological age, and has r !
mental age of fourteen years and eleven ]
months. Her intelligence quotient is
175, so that she is in the genius
class. She reads Shakespeare and
really understands the stories. She has
read all of Mark Twain’s books and is
very fond of them. She has n remark
able memory and imagination, and an
actual thirst for knowledge.
She has written several chapters of a
humorous book She particularly ad
mires humor, and probably is not the
sort of prodigy that takes life seriously.
The play life of both these children is
the same as that of any healthy young
ster. They are really just like ordi
nary children, says Miss Montgomery,
only they are exceedingly bright.
Elizabeth’s test was made recently
at the request of her parents.
