California won tlie football and basketball championship
of the coast this year. Having defeated almost everything
in sight down south, it seems California is going to take the
coast championship in. track and baseball for granted.
Jiist now it looks as if California would not enter the coast
conference track meet to be held here on May 21. The Cali
fornia team is going east after larger game, it seems, and the
cOast championship isn’t worth considering anyway, if one is
to accept the point of view of the southern institution.
Every so often a news report comes from Berkeley announc
iag some sort of an athletic competion with large eastern
schools. The Michigan track meet, the Harvard national cham
pionships, the projected baseball trip, the attempts to obtain
■football games with eastern teams—these are examples of the
policy being followed by California. And all this time other
coast teams are being shoved down, forced to take a hack seat
because of the dictatorial policy assumed by the Berkeley
officials. Stanford, possibly, may be excepted, because of the
nearness of the two schools, and the traditional ravalry. But
it is not to be expected that a small school like Stanford can
long follow in tlie footsteps of California, even should she wish
to do so.
It is even rumored that California may condescend to send
her second-string track men to the coast conference meet. It
is also rumored that such games as the Oregon-California foot
ball game at Berkeley next fall are to be billed: as mere practice
If the attitude of California is interpreted correctly, it is
time for something to he done. If California is really in a bet
ter athletic class than the other coast teams, as they seem to
consider themselves, what is to prevent other schools from dis
continuing athletic relations? Let’s at least find out the verac
ity of the rumors, and decide how to meet their attitude.
From now on, the popular fireside pastime will be reading
between tlie lines in the Emerald to find just which candidate
is receiving the dishonorable support of the college publica
tion. Putting this word and that sentence together and add
ing in a mistake in proof-reading to prove that, the Emerald
isn’t on the square is great sport, and very convincing exer
cise, Go to it—it’s all in the game, and don’t believe that it
The men’s glee club made good in their own home town.
No doubt of it. Especially pleasing was the little verse com
plimenting the Emerald on its financial success. Should any
one go again next year, they will undoubtedly be favored with
the same selection. In fact, a comparison of the programs of
the last ’steen years or so might easily reveal that the “hits”
of past concerts have been made “hits” (through no fault of
the audience) in succeeding concerts—(plural). Is the score
even now, referee?

NEW ART MOVEMENT
National Recognition Held In
Line With Progress.
The movement now current in govern
mental circles to create a cabinet post
for a “secretary of fine arts” is be
lieved by Avard Fairbanks, of the Uni
versity school of art faculty, to be one
of the most valuable intellectual pro
grams ever instituted in this country.
The ordinary tendency, according to Pro
fessor Fairbanks, is for a growing nation
to give too little attention to the devel
opment of its fine arts, with the result
that its civilization is prevented froni at
taining the heights to which it could rise
if the proper significance were given to
the realm of the beautiful.
According to news reports, President
Warren Harding is much impressed with
the new movement and has asked the art
ists of the country to get their arguments
in tangible form and submit them so that
action could be taken upon the matter.
This is the first progress ever made in
the effort to obtain the establishment
of a distinct department of fine arts in
the American government. The idea
has been much talked of for several
years but nothing has ever been done.
If the present plan materializes it will
form the first definite national standards
of artistic judgment, something which,
according to Professor Fairbanks, the
American people have lacked. Only with
such national recognition of art, can
painting, mural work, and sculpture, with
all of their allied lines, develop to a point
compatible with American civilization.
The movement to secure the establish
ment -of a fine arts post in the cabinet
has been undertaken by the' ^Artists’
League of New York, and is sponsored
by many of the leading art organizations
of the country. It is the outcome in its
present form, of the policy of the pres
ent administration to actively further the
cause of fine arts, from a national stand
point. !** * I liltlf
