UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 10. 1921.
BACK ON TERM
Work of University Paper and
Staff Pass In Review; Oregon
Spirit 1« Flourishing In Shack.
EDITORIAL POLICY FOR
Dyment Express Appreciation for
Steady Gain of Publication.
There is a certain loyal group on
the Oregon campus whose praises are
very seldom sung, either in assembly, at
Tallies or in the class rooms. They
draw many bricks and few bouquets.
Nevertheless this group carries on
throughout the year, often with little
to encourage them but the knowledge
of their service to the University.
Oregon Spirit is alive in more than
■one activity on this campus. Here is
a case where Oregon Spirit is not only
alive but flourishing. The Emerald
staff works silently on. Two, three,
five and six hours each day, the re
porters and members of the staff toil
diligently in order that The Emerald
may greet its readers each morning
with the maximum efficiency of writ
ing and newsgathering.
And what a spirit of loyalty it is
that keeps the reporters and the edi
tors grinding on day after day. De
spite higher standards, despite monthly
quiz sections, despite social engage
ments, this loyal crew carries on.
There is a spirit about The Emerald
staff that is the foundation upon which
Oregon Spirit is built. That spirit of
friendliness, democracy and co-opera
tion abounds within the walls of the lit
tle white shack. And whatever tribute
is due thi$ sheet goes back to that

Pounded on principles of good jour
nalism, throughout. The Emerald
makes an honest attempt to carry out
these same principles. It does not be
lieve in suppressing news. It docs
not believe in favoritism; it maintains
the right to criticize when criticism is
due, it likewise holds the right to laud
when tribute is due.
Adopting such a principle and carry
ing it out, naturally creates opposition.
But The Emerald would far rather face
this opposition than to attempt a sup
pression of the news that might not
be to the liking of some. This paper
does not intend to be a mere reflec
tion of the better things to the exclu
sion of less favorable things that should

An editorial and news policy has
beer adopted with the idea of making
the columns vigorous, and in order to,
do this, comment must be made, news
articles must be written on the real
student issues as they arise. The Emer
ald has not believed in deliberate crit-1
icism with nothing to suggest. In its
editorial policy it has adopted a policy j
of constructive criticism.
* • •
Its criticism and suggestions have
not been wide in scope but have been
concentrated on fewer points, giving
more careful consideration in the hope
of helping to achi-v.e resul's. It his
kept above “mud-slinging,” and yet
where individuals have been concerned
in a principle, it has fearlessly attacked
the principle, irrespective of the titles
or positions of the individuals involved.
During the period that the Emerald
took part in advocating the customary
Thanksgiving vacation period, the fol
lowing communication under da ;e of
October 27. was received from a prcm
in-nt faculty member. “To the Edi
tor: My compliments to The Emerald
upon the student council story that ap
peared in this morning’s paper. The
dispassionateness and reserve of it
ought to do a great deal to help along
the cause of the petition with those
faculty membefs who are neither of
one mind or the other, and who conse
quently might unconsciously become
prejudiced by unjournalistie treatments
of the situation.”—Colin V. Dyment,
Dean of the College.
The following communication was
received during the term from Presi
dent P. L. Campbell of the University:
“Please accept my hearty congratu
lations on the extremely excellent ap
pearance of The Emerald and high
level of news and editorial service to
which it has attained. I feel sure
that the alumni of the University to
gether with all the students on the cam
pus are appreciating the steady gains
which The Emerald has made during
the past few years.
“Whenever this office can be of ser
vice to you, please let me know.”
With this rather extended word of
retrospect which is shared by each in
dividual member of the staff, The
Emerald bids you all a very Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Tear.
For this is the last issue of the paper
until after the new year has begun.
We will be back another year with
renewed efforts. But even the staff
has to take its part in the final exam
inations. and from now on the mid
night oil will burn in preparation for
quiz papers rather than in preparation
EMERALD WILL GET
OF COLLEGE NEWS
Radio Club Plans to Bring
Daily Service of Experts
OFFICE TO BE IN SHACK
Apparatus, to be Installed in
Christmas Vacation, Will
Send 1500 Miles
The Emerald will carry daily radio
reports from other colleges in the Pac
ific Intercollegiate Press Association
beginning at the first of next term, if
arrangements now pending with opera
tors and press representatives at O. A.
C., Washington State, IT. S. C., Stan
ford, and the University of California
are carried out.
Garrett Lewis, acting president of
the newly organized Radio club has
been working with the Emerald in mak
ing the arrangements to take messages
which come and to send messages to
other schools. The operators would
work late enough in the evening to get
the happenings of the afternoon and
evening for the Emerald the next morn
Letters Sent to Other School^
Letters have Irnen written to Mon
tana State, PaeSe University, and
Mt. Angel college in an effort to es
tablish wirel*-,t communication with
Oregon althou ,ti these schools are not
in the coast association.
If it appears that the plan can be
carried out, the Radio club intends to
install instruments during the latter
part of Christmas vacation. The send
ing apparatus will have a radius of
1500 miles, according to Lewis. Mes
sages which are to be sent greater dis
tances will be relayed.
A room in the Journalism annex will
be equipped with the receiving and
sending instruments and it will be pos
sible to handle as much news from the
other colleges as it is desired to print.
It is expected that especially fast
service will be obtained in the matter
of obtaining results of games which
are played away from home in the
Experienced Operators Sought
The Radio club has several commer
cial operators among its members, and
plans to assist the Emerald in taking
the press reports as part of the activi
ties of the club. As it is but hardly
under way the acting officers want
students who have had experience in
radio work to become members.
The elub plans later to petition for
a chapter of the national radio frater
nity, Alpha Delta Alpha.
SHIFT IN GYM WORK ASKED
Men Taking Work at 4 Urged to
Change Hour to Get Best Results
Men taking gymnasium work at 4
o’clock are asked to change their
schedules so that the classes will fall
at another hour next quarter. H. A.
Scott, head of the department of phys
ical training for men, urges that as many
men make the change as possible. The
final examinations have shown that
the men in these classes have been
handicapped by the use of the main
gymnasium by the doughnut and var
sity basketball players.
As the outdoor gymnasium is not
equipped with apparatus and other
equipment, the men have not had the
advantages of their use. In the final
examinations, the showings made by
the 4 o ’clock classes compare unfav
orably with other classes, according to
Instructor Gerald Barnes, who also
urges the necessity of the men chang
ing to some other period.

South America is becoming too

Oregon student and at present rep
resentative for the United Press at
Buenos Aires. Miss Saunders seeks
new lands in which to wield the

Miss Saunders left early in Jan
uary for the southern continent,
where she was sent as a representa
tive of the United Press. In a let
ter to Mr. Thomas Miss Saunders
tells about her press work: “ The
work is simple after one masters the
art of translating the semlcodlfied
cables. I do the receiving, entering
cables from London, Madrid, Gibral
tar, Paris, and Hew York. We have
to keep a log on all scoops and the
number of hours by which we scored
Mr. Thomas says in his article in
the Editor and Publisher: “Miss
Saunders had expected to resume in
a few months her rambles about
South America. Her latest plan, how
ever, is to go to Africa. She is still
longing for diversion and expects to
encounter new adventures, in prob
ably the last part of the world that
an American newspaper girl would
be expected to strike for.

WIN FROM AGGIES
AND REEO COLLEGE
Affirmative Team Composed
of Patterson and Lamb Take
Decision by 2-1 Score
LINE OF DEFEATS BROKEN
Victories Put Oregon in Lead
of Colleges For State
Tha Oregon negative debate teem,
Boyd Iseminger end Olend Bcbineon,
defeated the Seed College affirma
tive team, Jacob Weinstein and Gib
son Bowles, In the triangular de
bate for the state championship, In
Portland last night.
The affirmative debate team of the
University was victorious by a two to
one decision in the debate against the
Oregon Agricultural College held last
evening in Villard hall. This is the
fir.it victory for Oregon for five years.
The debate here was part of a tri
angular intercollegiate debate between
O. A. C., Beed College of Portland, and
the University of Oregon. The af
firmative team of the University met
the negative team of O. A. C. here,
while Oregon’s negative team met
Reed college in Portland. The ques
tion of the debate was, Resolved: That
the United States should discontinue
her policy of naval expansion for a per
iod of seven years.”
400 Listen to Debate
Oregon was represented by Paul
Patterson and Charles Lamb. The mem
bers of the O. A. C team were John
Gray of Santa Rosa, Calif., and J. C.
Kimmel of Estaeada, Oregon. Each
man was allowed twenty minutes to
state his case, and five minutes for
rebuttal. All were speakers of ability,
and an audience of about 400 paid
closest attention at all times.
The debate resolved itself into one
main issue, “Ts there any possibility
of war?”. It was the claim of the nega
tive that conditions were not so satis
factory as they should be between
England and the United States, and
tha/t Japan’s attitude was that of the
survival of the fittest, therefor a large
navy shonld be maintained for protec
tion. The affirmative declared that
it would be beneficial to discontinue
the present policy of naval expansion.
Judges Are From Portland
Professor R. M. Miller, of the econo
mies department, was chairman. The
.■judges were Frank IT. Hilton of Port
land, Mr. W. C. McTnnis, of Eugene
and Charles C. Lennon of Portland.
.Arthur Johnson of the University
school of music sang two songs at the
beginning of the mograrn, and while
judges were rendering their decisions
John Reisacher gave a delightful piano
When the decision was announced a
great smile lit up the face of Professor
C. IX Thorpe, who has coached the
varsity for the debated. “Oh! Good,!
was his only remark. He afterwards
said that the team had worked hard
and were deserving of victory.
SUNDAY NIGHT DATE BAN
APPARENTLY A FAILURE
Plan Declared to Lack Cooperation of
Upperclass Women at Meeting
of House Heads Wednesday
That the new plan for the elimina
tion of Sunday night dates is greatly
hampered by the failure of the upper
class women to cooperate was brought
out at a meeting of the heads of houses,
Wednesday night. It was reported
that in only one house the plan had
been really successful.
“I had hoped that Sunday night
might be spent in a more quiet way,
since classes are held on the following
day,” said Dean Fox yesterday. "The
matter will now be left entirely up to
the houses to settle for themselves.”
Different organizations handled the
recommendation in different wavs. In
some houses dates were eliminated al
together. In others 9:30 was set as the
time for girls to be in, while some
adopted the plan suggested of having
men visit the houses. Considerable
opposition to the whole proposition was
voiced at the meeting. The explana
tion which was made by the Admin
istration pointed out that it was merely
a recommendation and not a TTniver
“I am sorry that the impression got
out that, the suggestion T made was a
new rule,” explained Dean Fox. “I
believe that some girls would not have
opposed it had they known that it was
merely a suggestion.”
ROUGHING IT IN ORIENT
DESCRIBED BY SCHENCK
Ascent of Mt. Fujiyama Feature of
Illustrated Lecture Delivered
Before Condon Club
Roughing it through the thorny jun
gles of the Orient is an arduous but im
pressive experience—arduous when the
hiker must crawl through the needle
pointed underbrush or sleep in flea
infested houses; impressive when the
admirer of scenic beauty sees the pat
tern of the Japanese flag traced in
the evening sky as the sun sinks be
hind Mount Fujiyama. Hubert Bebenek,
who recently returned from the Orient,
where he had been engaged in geology
| work, in an illustrated lecture de
| ilvered before the Condon club Thurs
day evening, pictured life in the Or
ient from many angles.
Schenck, a senior In the department
! of geology, told the Condon club mem
i bers about his nscent of Mt. Fujiyama
when he first visited the Orient. He
illustrated his climb of the snow
covered mountain with a beautiful
slide made from a picture of the Jap
The dominant characteristic of the
native Filipino is an adversion to
haste, said Schenck. Many slides of
the natives were shown.
This was the third and last meet

The final games of the Doughnut
series will bo played next Monday and
Tuesday. There will only be three more
games at the most, and maybe only two,
for if either the Kappa (digs or the
Fijis lose their Monday game the cup
will go to the other team. If they
both win, Monday, the final game will
be played Tuesday •evening at 1
o’clock, and the Fijis play Sigma Chi
at 5 o’clock.
The games last night were between
the four strongest teams in the league,
with the two leaders coming out win
ner in both cases. The Kappa Sigs
won from Alpha Tau Omega 20 to 10,
and the Fijis beat S. A. E. 18 to 12
in a close and exciting game.
The Kappa Sigs in the first game
got the jump right at the start, and
were never in danger. Their team work
j was good, but the shooting of neither
side was above the average. Burnett
and Rockhey starred for the winners
while Couch and Brocker played the
, best ball for A. T. O.
The second game was featured by a
strong comeback by the Fijis in the
second half. They wore on the short
end of a 0 to 3 scoro when the half
started, but tied the score within two
minutes, and from that time went
steadily to the front. Altstock and
Coar played fast ball for the Fijis,
while Crandall showed up for S. A. E.
The 10 cent admission charged at the
doughnut games last night netted
$21.60. The money received at these
games will be used to buy a cup for
; the winners and to help defray the
, expenses of the “Order of the O”
j Homecoming banquet.
MAZAMAS TO HEAR TALKS
Qoology Professors are Scheduled to

Illustrated lecture courses will be
given to the Portland Mazamas four
times a month by members of the do
partment of geology faculty during the

of the geology department, has decided
to schedule the lectures in Portland
next term, at the request of the moun
Dr. E. T Hodge, professor of mineral
deposits and engineering geology, will
deliver three of the four monthly lec
tures, and Dr. Packard will give the
fourth lecture. The topics to bo dis

tion and destruction of land forms.
Nightly Workouts in Signals
Passing and Kicking
Puts Men in Trim
13 ALREADY NAMED TO GO
Negotiations Under Way For
Taking Two More; Squad
Leaves Here Dec. 13
With light practice nightly on Hay
ward field the varsity football squad
is preparing for its post season frays at
Honolulu. The workouts consist mainly
of running signals, passing and kick
ing just enough to keep the boys in
A1 shape for their long ocean voyage
and the games that face them on their
The final personnel of the squad has
not yet been definitely decided upon
by Coach Huntington but he stated
that the following men are sure of the
trip, Captain Howard, “Spike” Leslie,
“Tiny” Shields, “Prink” Callison,
Floyd Shields, Carl Von der Ahe, Rud
Brown, Hal Chapman, George King,
“Dutch” Gram, “Hunk” Latham, Bill
Reinhart, and “Chuck” Parsons.
Negotiations nro under way which
if successful will make possible the
taking of 15 men instead of the 14
specified. The one or two men who
will bo selected to complete the squad
will be chosen from, Bark Laughlin,
Dick Reed, and Lon Jordan. Coach
Huntington stated that ho would make
his final selection Monday.
Hayward Offers to Stay
Trainer Bill Hayward has offered to
remain in Oregon and let one of the
“boys” tako his place, as the veteran
trainer figures that the trip would
mean much more to one of the men
who have been out in a suit all fall.
But in the opinion of Hoad Coach
“Shy” Huntington, Bill will make the
trip, for he will be needed to round the
boys into shape after the long sea
voyago and help get them acclimated.
Which will be quite a task and will
require Bill’s presence and all his skill
According to graduate Manager Jack
Benefiel, if tho trains are running on
time the squad will leave Eugene on
tho morning of Tuesday tho 13th, but
if there is any uncertainty about train
connections the party will leave here
on the Shasta Monday evening. The
trip from San Francisco to Honolulu
will be made on the Maui, which sails
from the Golden Gate on December
Elaborate plans have been made to
givo the boys a good time, according to
advices from tho islands, and a recep
tion committee of Oregon people has
been formed' under the chairmanship
of Chief Justice James L. Coke, of the
Territory of Hawaii. This committee
has as its purpose the task of making
the visiting Oregonians feel at home
and helping them to enjoy their trip
to the utmost.
Two Brides on Trip
The trip serves a double purpose; not
only does it carry a football invasion
to the shores of historic, Hawaii but it
is also a honeymoon excursion that
carries two Oregon brides to the honey
moon land of Hawaii, tho moonlit
beaches and waving palms of Waikiki;
for both Head Coach Huntington and
Oraduate Manager Benefiel are taking
their brides with them.
Two games are to bo played on the
trip, the first with the University of
Hawaii on December iifi, and the sec
ond with a team made up indiscrim
inately from the star players of the
territory on New Year’s day. If the
team succeeds in getting into shape
after their long sea voyage they are
expected to win both games handily.
The island teams do not measure up to
those of the main land in the same class
and the University of Nevada exper
ienced little difficulty in annexing
both battles last year.
