The R. O. T. C. Controversy.
In another column of The Emerald appears a statement issued
last night by President Campbell on the present status of the It. O.
T. C. in which is set forth the official viewpoint of the University
administration. In closing the discussion at this time The Emerald
points out that it has upheld a principle. It has attempted to do
justice—justice of a type born in the minds of men who have seen
war service and have come from it with ideals new-found and streng
The students who have spoken their minds in this issue feel con
fident that a sufficiently thorough investigation of the matter would
mean the end of the R. O. T. C. They hope and feel that the in
vestigation will be thorough.
The Emerald regrets exceedingly that the terms of the University
contract will not allow the question to be put to the test at this time.
And in view of the impossibility of discontinuing the work now it
heartily endorses the plea of President Campbell that morale must
not be impaired among those members of the student body now
taking training. It would come mighty near being a blot on the
name of the University were the officers of the corps to be denied
Nevertheless, The Emerald hopes the principle involved will not
remain permanently hid under the plea of expediency. President
Campbell mentions that national welfare is involved and that sud
den discontinuance of the R. 0. T. C. might react against this wel
fare. The latter is, of course, debatable but unless there arises a
more stringent national emergency than that which now exists there
will certainly be no harm in closely scrutinizing the principle of
compulsory military training in the colleges. In the housecleaning
of tin* American war time attitude which surely must come before
anything constructive can be done such a scrutiny would be highly
So let us hope that the investigation of the 11. 0. 'I'. C. will be vigor
ously pushed and the adequate solution found.

UP FOR VOTE NEXT WEEK
Poll List Hold up Until Registration
is Completed; no Extra Student
Body Tax Entailed
The vote on the proposed amendment
to the Student Body Constitution to
pi rniit the student executive committee
to charge a small admission to minor
sports contests will be in within five
days, or as soon as the student body
treasurer can get the poll ready. This
list cannot be procured until all the
students have registered. The treas
\ rer has been obliged to take more time
than usual on account of the scarcity
President Bartholomew says that ho
expects to see a large majority for the
amendment. He stated that he hopes
every student will turn out for the
t lei tion and emphasized the fact that
it is important to the life of minor
sports at Oregon. It was also pointed
out that the passage of this legislation
will entail no additional student body

Get the Classified Ad habit.
$1,750,000 IS SPENT
The Emerald, deplores the fact
that some merchants are considering
that the advertising space which
they use in the Emerald is “sup
port” for the student body.
Recently a letter came to this of
fice from a business firm here in
which the owner of the establish
ment declared that due to the fact
that he was furnishing employment
to two university students he would
therefore of necessity have to cut
down his advertising space accord
This business man is laboring un
der a delusion. The Emerald will
here present a few facts for his con
sideration. The Emerald reaches
every student and faculty member
at the University every morning.
This circulation on the campus is
2,200 copies. Every year these sub
scribers spend in Eugene a total of
31,750,000- That’s considerable busi
ness for this University to bring to
A careful complitation of figures
shows that there is an actual return
of $57.30 worth of business for
every 25 cents worth of advertising
carried in the Emerald.
Can the progressive business man
afford to overlook that?
Here are the progressive business
firms who are represented in this
morning’s Emerald. The students
are going to read their ads and
patronize these people when they
go to Eugene to do their shopping
today. Is your firm’s name listed
here as an advertiser today?

With the Assurance
Pavy Crockett used to say, “Be sure you’re right, then go
ahead.” Economy is not a matter of saving; it's spending money
I to the best advantage. You can add materially to the effectiveness
ri of your buying by patronizing a store where the utmost is given
p for the least expenditure.
k The J. C. Penney Company names its price—the same for all!
I Peter is never robbed to pay Paul. In paying the price, you know
l you are getting the same square deal as your neighbor.
Money has an earning power and paying cash enables you
j to save a percentage of the losses sustained in doing a credit
i Carrying home your own purchases saves you the increase in
I prices that is added to cover the cost of delivery—torses, uuio
I mobiles, their upkeep, delivery men!
t And added to these important savings is the purchasing
power of this Nation-wide institution—an organization of Sit!
stores in 26 States. You can "go ahead” at a J. C. Penney Com
pany store with full assurance that "you're right.“
