‘ The Purpose of Student Government
Student government at Oregon is founded upon purely demo
cratic principles. It is a government by the student, of the student
and for the student. Yet there are many who do not sense the right
they have in bringing important questions before the student gov
erning body or the entire Btudent body when occasion arises.
There are, naturally, many things connected with the rules, regu
lations and methods now employed which are not in accord with
each individual’s idea of right and wrong. If the student feels that
there is a chance for constructive criticism along certain lines, then
ne or she should make that fact known, suggesting the remedy.
Student government will succeed only when every student be
gins to feel that he or she is a part of the organization, and that im
portant questions brought before the student body are for individ
ual consideration. There are two methods by which suggestions for
bettering conditions and criticism of existing conditions may be
brought before the attention of those who can investigate the matter
One of these ways is by appearing before the Student Council,
the representative governing body of the associated students, and
presenting the matter to them for their action. The other is by
writing a communication to the Emerald.
The Emerald is the official student body publication ami space
will he devoted to communications which merit publishing, and
which are properly signed by the writer. No anonymous e<yn mu id
eations can be published although the name of the writer may be
withheld from the communication when published, if the writer de
You have your personal opinions on matters which concern
the university, the student body, traditions, the faculty and many
others; give voice to them. Write a letter to the Emerald or take your
case before the student council or both.

the plans of Phil Brogan, appointed
temporary manager captain at the meet
ing of the soccer enthusiasts Wednesday
evening, All men with some previous
experience are requested bv Brogan to
come out for the evening practices and
help build up the team for the possible
games with 0. A. P.
Arrangements have been made with
Benefiel to equip the aspirants for the
Varsity squad with football shoes. It
is probable that regular soee >r outfits
will be given to the in<ni making the
team later in the season. The budget
of the A. S. V. O. provides no funds for
soccer equapment.
The outlook for a team able to com
pete with the Aggie skilled hooters
this year is far from encouraging.
Morgan Staton, captain of the squad
last year, is too busy with work on the
advertising staff of the Emerald to
devote much of his time to the gam*.
Capps, Koerber, McPherson, Fchmeer,
and Tuerck, a very essential jmrtion
of the machine which battled the O.
A. C. team in the two tie games last
year, are all absent this term.
It is expected that the soccer gym
classes will develop some capable men.
F. T. Lau, a Chinese lad who has had
considerable experience playing the
game in his native country, is showing
nice form in the gym class.
Lieutenant Enow lee Tranafered to
Local R. O. T. C. Unit
An addition ha* been made to the
Staff of the military department in the
(person of First Lieutenant Maurice 1
Knowles. This makes four commis
sioned officers who are now assigned
to this unit. Lieutenant Knowles was
attached to the 47th Infantry during
the war and was stationed at Camp
; Dodge, Iowa. He has been stationed
at Camp Lewis and has just been
i transferred from that camp to take up
his work here.
| The military work in the unit is ad
vancing rapidly, according to Major
Buird. During the last few days, the
' Major stated, the men seem to be get
ting into the spirit of the work.
The appointment of the non-commis

Claire Keeney and Irene Stewart to
Take Leading Roles; Last Year’s
Stars in Support
The dramatic season on the campus
prill open the second week in November
with Jesse Lynch Williams’ play “Why
Marry?” The leading parts will be
played by Irene Stewart, Claire Keeney,
Doris Pittenger and Norvell Thompson
and all of the parts will be played by
students who were stars last year.
The play mixes real comedy with a
present day problem and the interest
is held up to the last line. The plot
circles around a young chemist and his
assistant Helen, who, although they are
in love will not get married because
i wedding would interfere with his
’areer. Helen’s family are much wor
fied and can not understand her point
af view. There is a big surprise in the
and and it will suit you if you are the
’onventional sort of person. The com
ady in the play is given by the judge
who is seeking a divorce from his wife
after twenty years of married life be
cause, to use his own words, “Dammit—
[ don’t like her.”
The east of the play is: the judge,'
Dlaire Keeney; Helen, Irene Stewart;
lohn, brother to Helen, Vern Fudge;
Bex, George Stearns; Ernest, the
’hemist, Norvell Thompson; Theodore,
Kenneth Armstrong; Lucy, John’s wife,
Elizabeth Mellis; and Jean, the girl
who is forced to love Rex, Doris Pit

pany have started work on “The Wed
iing Duest” by James M. Barrie and

A. Milne which will be given this term.
