DON’T TAKE THE CHAFF.
Most students who have matriculated in the University
within the last few years have found little difficulty in regis
tering. A presentation of the number of hours made in high
school, assurance tlia't all required subjects had been taken,
and a little correspondence with the registrar were all that was
necessary to admit.
Now that the University is carrying on a “tightening up”
policy, some students are feeling that the process is too string
ent; that somehow or other the students were not prepared for
the move. Is this because the University has “gone over their

number of electives are permitted. Would it not" raise the
standards of the high schools of the state as well as those of the
University if it were to he specified that the grade in the Car

The University ol California has not suffered any great loss
bf students by the use ol this method. The recommendation
of the principal of the high school must he presented by every
applicant, and the recommendation cannot be made unless the
grade is of an average specified by the California officials. If
this recommendation is not presented, the student is permitted
to take an entrance examination. If he fails, he may take
shch subjects as he needs under the instruction of the Cali
fornia faculty. #
Why would not such a system work*at Oregon if it works
at California? It, might mean the elimination of many stu
dents who now are forced to leave school, and who spread their
discontent before they leave. It might mean a raising of edu
cational standards over the state. It might mean a Creator

Th® Swan Song of a Lone Hair.
To the Editor: Professor Zyniophil,
of our college, author of “A New Method
of Soup Inhalation, Especially Relating
to Puree of Split Pea," a most popular
handbook for all fraternities, lias one
hair on his head. It beacons forth
against the glistening surrounding ex
panse of white, a milestone, a pillar, a
landmark of disappearing youth—au old

erect in the center of a new order (more
appropriately, a revealed order) of

flourishes, the gray hordes of knowledge

Daily it is wrapped tenderly in a four

gently. Daily it is brushed by a hand
engraved, silver-embossed set of extra
large military brushes. In faet this hair
receives all the loving cnre and meticul

dear departed hairs would have received
had they retained their pristine vigor and
enthusiasm for this life. Professor Zym

he lavishes his vast fund of affection on

thatched coverings were nil the rage.
Tot a careful observer may see that
under its responsibility it droops slightly,
its chest is becoming more and more
sunken, its whole frame more skinny.
It is visibly graying, and it totters in the
breeze in a manner it would have never
