Oregon Daily Emerald VOLUME XXIII. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. EUGENE, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7.’ 1921. NUMBER 47 Sunday Date Dead? Thirty Days’ Trial of Idea Is Like Jail Term, Campus Cynic Says, Calling for Monastic Cowl. Screws Turned On Intensive Educating Process Held Designed to Make Intellectuality Sprout Like Hothouse Lettuce. By E. J. H. The Sunday night date is being given ye merry skid for a month, after which the Dean of Women will probably like the innovation so much that an arid Sunday eve will be the rule for all time. Thirty days! Thirty days! If that isn’t a jail sentence, now The wind moans the mournful refrain through the sighing, sobbing tree tops of the cem etery; the empty grandstands creak dismally, sighing for the bright and cheerful voices that used to talk of immortality, religion, politics, and the better things in the world. The mill Taee wends its melancholy way toward the utilitarian task of turning a mill wheel, bereft of the happy, earnest students who used to canoe up, debat ing the Armenian question, and the fu ture of Europe. Thirty days! A dank, dismal, dreary vista of Sunday nights opens out before us. What, in the name of Thomas Edison Socrates, are we coming to? We stu dents, judging from faculty sugges tions, seem to be dumb species of un thinking bovines, to be used as fit subjects for experiments. Proceeding from the proposition that all students are equally and wholly stupid, our men tors now propose that all students are equally and wholly stupid, our mentors now propose to instill or install in us a capacity for intellectual endeavor that will enable us to go out in the world and do anything and everything from inventing a new fluid for cold storag ing eggs to building a Greek temple. This, it further develops, is not to be a slow process of development; we are going to get this ability, by the grace of God and a few professors, in the next few weeks. Or. perhaps that’s stretching it a bit. Perhaps it will ex tend over a period of a term or so. Anyhow, the fact remains (said fact haviner been so firmly planted that it can’t do anything but remain-) that the thing is going to be done. As one of our beloved preceptors is fond of shouting, the screws are “to be turned a few notches tighter.” The essence of successful pedagogy nowa days seems to consist in getting hard boiled. Where, T rise to ask, is my cowl and my black robe, and when do they allot me mine cheerless stone cell? When we go up to pay our fees (which, upon failure to do so within four minutes and thirteen seconds after the allotted period of time results in a loss of hours or expulsion from school) there ought to be another line, form ing on the right to get a monastery ration card, which would entitle us to one dried herring (non-odorous pre ferably), two pieces of Zweiback, and a flagon of chlorinated reservior water,! per day. Why, the possibilities are im mense! I begin to see where some one has overlooked a few bets on this higher standard proposition. No one has thought of a delightful time saving de vice: a time card with every minute of the day printed on it, minutes to be checked and accounted for by the stu dent to some central bureau. For in stance, Horace Fleetfoot presents his card to the inquisitor. “Horace,” booms the inquisitor, “what did you do with the six hundred and first minute of this day! You haven’t checked it. Now don’t tell me you stopped to scratch your head, when you should have been turning the two hundred and sixth page of Taussig. If so, I must penalize you severely. Quick, quick, speak up. Already you have run over your allotment of minutes standing here.” “Please sir,” says Horace, stutter ing badly. “Stop stuttering,” thunders the In quisitor. “It wastes time.” Horace grows desperate and turns, as any worm would. “Well, if you must know, I stopped to tie my shoe lace.” He bows his head and bursts out in huge, gusty sobs. This is the end—the gate for Horace. An awful alienee prevades the In quisitor’s office. “You—you stopped to tie your shoe lacef” repeats the In quisitor slowly, the terrible truth scarcely penetrating. “You stopped— to tie—your—shoelace f” Horace nods, now weltering in tears. The Inquisitor speaks, and peals of thunderclaps rock the roof. “What do you think college is fort To tie shoe laces t To waste time like thatt” He stops unable to go further. “The gate.” he chokes, “the gate! Give him the gatej Be gone, never come near our sacred precincts again.” I repeat, the possibilities are enor mous.

GREATER OREGON | COMMITTEE Will BE REORGANIZED Each Town With a Population of 1000 or More Will Have Two Representatives PORTLAND HAS FOUR MEN Students to Help Alumni in Lining up Preppers and In Other Activities Reorganization of the Greater Oregon committee with one student from each town and an alumnus from each town as its personnel with four department chairmen as an executive council is a new plan which has been adopted by student body officers and Miss Jean ette Calkins, acting alumni secretary. The student committee will meet today at 4:15 in Guild hall. Students and Alumni to Cooperate Under the new organization the stu dent committeeman will cooperate with the alumni member to organize an alumni association in all towns having a population of 1000 or more. This organization of Oregon graduates will take charge of furnishing literature to prospective students as well as fur nishing the University with the names of all high school seniors. Speakers which are sent out will be entertained by the alumni association. As the organization of the committee is mapped out there are four chairmen to head departments. Paul Patterson ,is to be general chairman, Roy Veatch assistant chairman, John Dierdorff pub licity chairman, and Dave Graham, ’05, alumni chairman. Every Town to be Organized “We are going to put the advantages of Oregon up to the high school sen iors,” said Paul Patterson yesterday in commenting on the new plans. “The alumni are to be organized in every town. Lyle Bartholomew outlined the plan yesterday and stated that the alumni were behind the students on this thing and that the interest of the alumni in the University was growing. A great deal of the work is to be done during vacations when students are at home, he said, although in the periods be tween vacations follow up work will bo done and literature sent. Publicity work is to be done before Christmas vacation in order to make preparations for an extensive campaign at that time.

POLO SEASON OPENS The polo season at the University of Pennsvlvania has opened and an intercollegiate match will be held each week-end. Oregon Honest, Says Man Who Got $20 Back John Peter Dye, a freshman from Los Angeles, set out for town one day to pay a bill. He was planning on paying with a twenty-dollar green back received a few days previous. The money had been sent to him by a man who had borrowed the amount some time before. When John reached his destination and reached confidently into bis pocket for the bill—he found that it was gone. He felt very low! The next morning when he picked up the Emerald, he found his lost bill featured prominently on the front page. He could hardly believe his eyes. After he had read the story John repaired as soon as possible to the Emerald office, gave a descrip tion of the money, and received the lost bill. He was so grateful to the paper for the publicity that enabled him to re gain his money, and so grateful to the finder, Dan Lyons, for being so honest, that he wanted to reward him. Dan, however, refused to accept a reward, so as a token of apprecia tion, John bought him a knitted tie. Now. all parties are quite satisfied, and John Peter can’t say enough for the honesty of students on the com pus. FINANCES GILBERT’S TALK ECONOMIC LOSSES INVOLVED IN' PROGRAM OF WAR DISCUSSED Money Not Only Factor; “We Fight War With Labor and Labor Pro ducts, ” Says Professor The financial and economic losses involved in the pre-war program of preparedness, the financial cost of war itself, and the losses, financial and otherwise, involved in the post-war pro gram of preparedness were the topics of an address by Dr. J. II. Gilbert, of the economics department at the second of the Disarmament Forums at the Y. M. C. A. hut last night. ‘ The cost of war is not to be reck oned in terms of money at all/’ said Dr. Gilbert. “We fight war with labor and labor products.” Money expended for the promotion of the war would pay the wages of 464,000,000 men for one year at pre-war rates. This is eight times the laboring force of the United States. It is not the debts themselves which are a burden to a country, according to the speaker, but the maintenance of the debts. The money raised by taxes is turned back to the people again in the form of interest on the bonds. The ex pense incurred is due to the enormous force of workers necessary to collect taxes and handle the bonds. If the debt could be eliminated by taxation in one year, this force of workers could be turned to productive employment. FOOTBALL COMMITTEE IS STILL UNDECIDED No Recommendation to be Made to Executive Council Tonight; Will Report Before Team Sails That the football committee will not make a recommendation to the Execu tive Council for head football coach at Oregon next year at the session of that body tonight was made known yesterday. The committee has been meeting of late and discussing the situation but it does not feel ready to report at this time according to the members. Dean Colin V. Dyment, chairman of the football committee, issued the fol lowing statement last night: “The com mittee will not make a recommenda tion to the council in all liklihood, at the regular session tomorrow night. We do expect, if possible, to make a recom mendation before the football team leaves for the Hawaiian Islands.” FORMER STUDENT IS DEAD' Jessie Gamble, ’24, Succumbs After Long Illness Announcement has come to the com pus that Jessie Gamble, a member of the class of ’24, died at her home in Portland on Saturday evening, follow ing an illness which has eontinued since last June. The cause of her death was heart-trouble. Miss Gamble was a member of Delta Zeta, and well known on the campus, where she made many friendB among the students during her first year at j the University, last year. She spent the entire three terms in Eugene, and her illness began at about the time j college was out. Her brother, John Gamble, a member of Phi Delta Theta, graduated with ! the class of ’21 last June. AMENDMENT URGED FOR ADMISSION FEE 10 MINOR SPORTS Present Financial Backing Is Insufficient to Procure Desired Equipment $1350 NEEDED THIS YEAR Only $750 Appropriated For Boxing, Wrestling, Soccer, Tennis, Swimming A proposed amendment to be pre sented by the minor sports committee, at the last student body meeting of the term tomorrow, reads as follows: Amendment to Article 10, Section 1, of the Constitution of the Associated Stu dents of the University of Oregon. Pro vided that the discretion of the Execu tive Council a nominal fee may be charged for minor sport contests held in Eugene. The decision to present this amend ment was arrived at by the Minor Sports committee, only after they had considered the (juestion for some time, and concluded that it was the only method to bring the minor sports sit uation out of the present period of com parative inaction, nnd put it on a firm er basis. Committee is New The Minor Sports committee, repre senting tennis, swimming, boxing, wrestling, and soccer, is one of the newer of the campus committees, being appointed for the first time at the beginning of the present term by Presi dent Bartholomew, with Kenneth Smith as chairman. According to Austin Hazard, rep resenting swimming on the committee, only $750 was given to minor sports this year, by the finance committee of the University, and this amount has to be divided without the money to purchase proper equipment, nr take any trips of importance. Hazard explained that if this amend ment could be passed the minor sports would take in a substantial sum each year, and in this manner would be en titled to a larger sum for their expen ditures each year. $1350 Considered Urgent The sum of $1350 was the amount that the minor sports committee con sidered necessary for the proper activit ies for this year along these lines, but the finance committee cut this to $750, thus leaving only enough money for the barest necessities in equipment and trips. The present siate of affairs, accord ing to Hazard, will soon lead to the total loss to the University of all ! minor sports unless some drastic meas- 1 ures are found to increase their yearly! appropriations, and allow the men tak- | ing part some sort of reward for their j work. HAWAIIAN JUDGE VISITS James L. Koke, Chief Justice, Addres ses Law Students and Assembly James L. Koke, chief justice of the territory of Hawaii spent two liourH on the Oregon campus Monday during which time he spoke to the law stu dents and at the special Bezdek as sembly.

Judge Coke is the highest judiciary official in Hawaii. He was born in Oregon and received his early train ing in this state. He is a graduate of Washington university and Lee uni versity, Washington, D. C. He came to Eugene from Coos county where he visited a brother who is cir cuit judge in that county.

FRIDAY MATINEE PLANNED “SWANWHITE” TO BE GIVEN FOB CHILDREN AT 4 O’CLOCK Curious Magic and Fantastic Effects To Be Feature of Junior Company’s First Appearance As “Swnnwhite,” tho fairy fantasy by August Strindberg, which will be J produced in Guild Hall tonight and ■ Thursday night has a special interest for children, it has been decided that a matinee especially planned for them will be given Friday afternoon at four. Although the play has a unusual inter est for youngsters it will appeal to everyone since the settings and cos tumes are to be particularly beautiful while the play itself is a delightful fairy tale into which arc woven many fantastical works of magic. Cruel Stepmother Involved The play tells of the beautiful prin cess, Swanwhite, and the cruel step mother and, of course, there is a prince and a kind father whom war calls away from home. The play is almost entirely the work of the junior company and it is flip first, one they have produced this term. Much of the business in the play is of particular interest because never before on the cnmpiis has anything like it been produced. Two ghost-mothers appear on the stage and can bo seen walking through each other. Flowers that open and close on cue, and a swan which flies across the stage are used to produce fairy effects. Particular care has been taken with the cos tumes, many of which were designed by Sadye Eccles, a student in the dram atic department. The setting is a quaint and old-fashioned one with which soft colored lighting effects will be used. Lorna Cooildge as Princess Swanwhite, the young princess, will be played by Lorna Ooolidge. Al though this is her first appearance on the Guild hall stage her work prom ises to be very good. Tho young prince from the count of a cruel king will be played by Charles Fish. The step mother is Helen Enoch. Tho othor members of the cast aro: Margaret Nelson; mother of Swanwhite, Thelma Gannaway; the green gardner, John Ellestad; first knight, Harrell Larsen; three maids of tho step-mother, Sadye Eccles, Mabel Gilham and Hildegarde Ttepinen. Virgil Mulkey is working out many of the magic effects which will bo one of the main attractions of the play. STATE ENGINEER WILL SPEAK Chief Engineer Herbert Nunn nf the State Highway commission will address i the pre-engineering students of the University tonight at 7:30 o'clock. The lecture, to be given in the auditorium of Oregon hall Claw building), will deal with the problems confronting the highway engineer in Oregon. Anyone interested in this subject is cordially invited. OREGON (MS SOIL FOR NOW ON DECEM8ER14 Five Day Voyage From Point of Embarkation to Waikiki Beach 14 OR 15 TO MAKE TRIP Pale Faces Doped! to Beat Islanders by Big Score; Plays Kept Dark When the good ship Maui, Honolulu hound, steams nway from San Fran cisco on the morning of Dec. 14 it will have as its passengers Oregon’s foot ball squad, Coach Huntington, Trainer Hawyard and Graduate Manager Jack Benefiel. It will take 5 days to make the trip to Hawaii from tho California port which will get the boys into tho Island city on tho 10th. This will give them almost a week to trade their sea legs for a steady gait and also to ac custom them to grass skirts and other items of local scenery that might prove disconcerting on first sight. The exact personnel of the men who will make the trip has not yet been given out by the graduate manager, but the eleven men, Captain Howard, Les lie, F. Shields, Callison, T. Shields, Von dor Alio, Brown, Chapman, King John son Latham that were used in tho game against the Aggies are billed to go. At present it is a question ns to whether 14 or 15 players will make the trip. The Hawaiian promoters are pay ing the expenses of 17 all told which provides for 14 players, but Manager Benefiel is making every effort to take another gridster. The throe men who are to make the trip in addition to the eleven already mentioned will be picked from nmong the following: Lnughlin, center; Gram, half; Parsons, guard; Keod, tackle; Morfitt, end; and Jordan, fullback. Two games will ho played in Honolulu, the first on Christmas day with the University of Hawaii, tho second on January first, with a team of all-stars to be picked from the city league. Nevada made the trip last year and won both games taking thirteen play ers in addition to their coaching staff so 14 or 15 men should cover the needs of the Oregonians. The University of Hawaii is not doped to give tho var sity much of a battle ns they have a hard time rounding into form. Latest reports from the islands credit tho University with a win over Palomas 13-fi after losing a game two woeks previous to the strong navy aggrega tion .'15-0. Spike Leslie will have to look to his kicking laurels in the game with the Hawaiins ns they have a booter, Lyd gate, that, made an average of 55 yards on his kicks last season. What style of football Huntington intends uncork ing against tho islanders is of course problematical but with the perfecting of the aerial nttack as evinced against the winged ‘M’ on a sloppy field the forward pass may be expected to fea ture the attack. “AN APPLE A DAY” The abundant apple crop in the Uni versity of Washington orchard was thrown open to the students, and they were permitted to lay in their winter supply. A trifling sum was asked to cover the cost of production. Hiking Parties Will Combine Fun With Profit Next Term Organized hikes into the woods and ! mountains adjacent to Eugene for rec reative, and educational purposes are being planned for next term by a com mittee of geology students in coopera- ' tion with the physical education depart ment of the University. These hikes will be conducted for the purpose of fostering a love of the great outdoors and for inculcating in the students an appreciation and knowledge of nature. As tentatively planned, the hiking parties will combine physical and men tal development. In each party will be faculty members who, from moun tain peaks, will explain the geological history of :,he Cascade and Coast ranges; will trace the history of the Willamette river; will name the varied conifers of the forests visited; will name the flowers and instruct the hik ers in orinthology. Hubert Schenck, geology major and former wroker with Dr. Smith in the Philippines, is chairman of the com mittee which is to cooperate with the physical education department. The club members are Rachael Husband, Dorothy Dixon, and Don Zimmerman, and the faculty members are Dr. John Bov&rd, Dr. Edwin Hodge, Dr. Ray mond Wheeler, Dr. D. E. I.ancefield, Professor A. R. Sweetser, and Professor Melvin Solve. The hikes will be similar in plan to those fostered by the physical educa tion department last summer. At that time parties visited Raldy, Spencer’s butte, the Braes, and one three-day trip took over 40 members of the sum mer term 70 miles up the McKenzie to HorBepasture mountain. All the trips wut« successful and well attended. It is probable that the University hiking club will join forces with the Mazamas sometime next spring in scaling the Sisters, those three snowy sentinels of the Cascade range whose frosty domes can be seen from Eugene. The hiking jaunts will be arranged , and conducted so that they will appear to real hikers and students who desire i to understand nature.
