What do you read?
Probably the greatest amount of reading done by college
students comes as a result of class assignments. English
literature, American literature, and foreign literatures as
taught in college classrooms are necessary if a student is to
have a suitable background for future readings But reading
should not stop with classroom assignments.
There is developing in American literature at the present
time a new school of realism, a school which seeks to present
pi*esent-day life as it is, absolutely uncolored: by romantic
plots,and characters. The newer books, products of this
school, are causing much discussion among readers every
where- And yet how few college students even realize that
such a change has taken place!
Perhaps the new school will not last as long as literature.
But it is causing a great deal of discussion, and college stu
dents should not claim a complete education without a knowl
edge of the important present-day topics of discussion.
What do you read? Do you read worth-while books? Do
you really read them or glance through them seeking only the
plot interest and the entertainment value? There is a great
deal underneath many of the books of the newer school, which
will pass by the careless reader accustomed to the romantic
type of novel. Do you get it as you read?
Graduates particularly should not neglect their reading
after they leave the University, since it is the best way of
continuing their education and profiting of their spare hours.
A careful reader can almost educate himself, since the greater
part of the knowledge of the world is written. Keep up with
the times. Put in your spare time witli a carefully selected
Sorry, but no politics today. Everybody is waiting to see
which way the wind wlil blow, and yesterday not a wind was
stirring. The Emerald will try to present all the current news
--‘-who is going to run for office, and so forth—but it will make
no strong attempt to hound a possible candidate until he or
she gives a definite yes or no. If a candidate has made up his
mind to ride the political scales, the Emerald thinks everyone
in the University has a right to know it. It’s playing square
with everyone to do so. Looking over past elections, campus,
national and otherwise, anyone could find that most “dark
horses” have been accused of almost everything before the
campaigns were over. If the candidate and his record will
not stand public opinion two weeks, they certainly cannot
stand one week—or possibly an entire year.
Our present University is due, in a great measure, to Eu
gene merchants. And the merchants have never been given
the credit due to them for the sympathy and help they have
given Oregon. Whenever help is needed to put over some
thing that means a greater Oregon, the Eugene business men
are always leadv to help in any way they can. Isn’t there
some way Oregon students can show their appreciation?
The doughnut track meet is to be held Saturday. Entries
close today. Be sure your team is well lined up. It’s going
to be a great meet. 1

[ The Campus Cynic |
Fable of the School With the Retarded
(With condolences t'o George Ade that
this must be.)
To the Editor: Once upon a time there
was a School. Now this School had a Head,
a Body, and all those Extensions, Or
gans, and Appurteuances that go to make
up a life-sized Corpse. But it had an
Affliction, grievous to name—the String
halt. Between the various Organs and
Centers most of the wires were down,
resulting in this School doing some Funny
Things. Oft times an Extension would
reach out, pluck some Juicy Fruit, and
offer it to another member, saying: “Be
hold, I have snared a Toothsome Tongue
full. Have a hunk.’’ And the ether
member would say gravely: “Nit. Rollo,
not. Your luscious luncheon is nothing
hut a Puekery Persimmon. ’Twill give
us au Internal Ache.” Whereupon the
Member who had offered the Morsel
would fall buck and say Sayings that Siz
Oner one of these Appurtenances or
Projections, known in Technical Par
lance as the Athletic Council, snared a
most Juicy Jorum of Jack and shrieked
to the Head gleefully. “Eureka! Like
wise a couple of Coos Bays! Have a
look! See what 1 glommed with these
Trusty Tentacles of Mine— a most Mel
lifluous Fragment of Dough. Partake,
eat, masticate, digest this Morsel, in or
der that when the Athletic Meet comes
round again this year and the first dande
lions and sunburns appear, we will have
an Athletic Field to Romp around on.”
"Well,” said the Head, opening its mouth.
“I’m not very hungry right now, but hand
it over and I’ll park it in my Hollow
Tooth until my appetite recovers from
the Hotcakes I had for breakfast.”
Time passpd. The Rainy Season set
in. Golashes began to Gallop about, and
Colds lurked conveniently on Senior
Benches and Sisterhood Porch swings.
The Athletic Projection looked ubout and
saw no Bump, Indentation, or Plain Sur
face appearing on the fair surface of the
School that could be taken for an Ath
letic Field. “Wassamatter?" it cried.
“Ain’t you consumed that Quota of Edi
bles I forked over, back in the Dark
Ages?” “Yup,” answered the Head. “Its
now up to the Organ that Builds.” The
Building Organ immediately spoke up.
“Wait.” it said, “until Spring comes and
the Lettuce flowers in the Dell, and I
have taken my sulphur and molasses.”
"Welt.” returned the somewhat Peeved
Athletic Projection, “get a Wiggle on—
Shimmy right along. We gotta hurry or
we won’t have any Capering Grounds.”
At last Spring arrove and Porosknit
blossomed unseen as a Hidden Habili
ment. Still no Athletic Feild. "Come
on, lot’s go,” urged the Athletic Member.
After some Time a series of very small
Goosefleshes appeared on the Corpse.
The Athletic Member had Hope. But
the Goosefleshes lagged. “How come,
now?” wailed he. “Don’t rush me, don’t
rush me,” said the Building Organ fever
ishly. “I’m busy. Wait until I get all
the pretty Rutabaga flowers planted
along the pathways of our Dear School,
and dig up a few more yards of Lawn.”
Well, to make a long story short, the
days advanced apace. Cauliflowers and |
Grades flourished and died. Still no more
Bumps or Indentations. Fially, one fine
morning, the Athletic Member was
missed. The other Appurtenances sent
out a search party and finally found the
Absent Projection in its retreat, known
as the Coop. dead. Nearby were two
empty Hoefler boxes. It was discovered
that he had died unconstitutionally in
haling these Hoeflers. A note was found
nearby. It read: “I go to another
Land,, where Athletic Fields are not
needed, and I can Carom with Reverse |
English English on the Clouds.”

JOIN CAMPUS CLUBS.
Each year sees the formation of many
campus societies. This is a natural and
commendable solution of the problem of
student association which evolves when
the size of the University prohibits one
from knowing all the men and women in
Some of these new organizations in
augurate impressive initiation ceremonies,
and wear flashy pledge ribbons and her
aldric badges of no mean proportions. It
is possible that a few go so far with
their “publicity” campaign that they ap
proach being advertising agencies. But
even then the benefits of mutual mee(^
ings and conversation are not lost.
Many campus clubs, on the other hand
content to pursue their courses unob
served, unsung—complete and satisfac
tory within themselves. This modern
type of intra-mural society deserves more
interest and support than is accorded it
by busy campus folk. Those little groups
of students who, under a common im
pulse, gather to stimulate merest in their
favorite studies, or even solely for the
purpose of promoting acquaintance and
companionship, have no small share in
keeping the University active, democratic
