Let’s Cut It All Out.
Somebody has to be the goat, it seems, when needed reforms are
to be swung. This time it’s picturesque “Lone Star’’ Diet/, Purdue
Mentor, whose alleged activities in subsidizing northwest prep school
athletes has brought down on him wide condemnation and lost him
his job. But it is a sacrifice to a worthy cause for the time has really
come for a showdown in all this sort of thing, for a close inpection
of the whole inter-collegiate athletic structure.
Brazen paying of athletes has existed in the past. Here in the
northwest valiant efforts have been made to remove it from our
athletic life. But prep school athletes must be attracted to colleges,
under the present theory and so “jobs” are offered. Sometimes they
mean work; just as often they are sinecures made possible by
alumni, jealous of their alma mater s athletic reputation, and pat
riotic business men. I nder this system there is room lor much that
is not above board, room for the stirring up of distrust among
athletic rivals in the conference. And perhaps too it hurts the prep
pers in making college a bed of roses during football season (and only
then it is a bitter but well- recognized fact).
There is only one way out of it; “heresy” some will say to even
suggest it. But why not cut it all out? Let the preppers choose.
Send around your coaches and your athletic managers il you really
think it is necessary and that is to be debated—but don t arm them
with jobs; words should suffice.
We say here in the west that the east has things to learn from us
in football. Let us start a class in clean fundamentals. If nobody
pays and nobody holds out jobs we will all be classed just as we
should be classed on our merits as educational institutions. Anil
they’ll come too if they are of the right stuff.
We All Make ’Em
The Emerald sincerely regrets its misquotation of Dr. E. S. Hates
to which the doctor calls attention in a communication published this
morning. In explanation may we say that the Emerald insists that
its reporters get their stories at first hand. It is often difficult how
ever to find members of the faculty for personal interviews and thus
arises at times the necessity of seeking information at second hand.
The source in this ease was considered as thoroughly reliable. That
it was not we regret. Even a newspaper sometimes, makes a mistake.

To tho Editor: 1 must ask !i little of
your space in which to correct tho
extraordinary misstatements in your
report of m\ talk before tho Graduate
Club on January IS. A portion of that
roport runs as follows: "Or. Hates
stated that nowhere outside of Europe
n is any roal guuluato work beiug done.
Tho graduate srhools in Amorim havo
boon originated in tho last six years
and as far as tho work in tho I’aeiti
ooast states is oonoornod it does not in
any war oomparo with that of tho Karo
pean oountrios, ho said." What l aot
uully said was this: "Graduate work in
\morioa on any largo and offootivo
smlo is tho rroation of tho last L’a
r oars, and in tho I'nivorsity of Oregon
roal graduate work is tho creation of
tho last six roars." 1 made no refer
once to our sister institutions on tho

graduate work of European universities
is superior to our own. I did, how

SUPPORTING SOMETHING, AT
To the Emerald: I am writing this
because I am genuinely interested in
the thing I wish to speak about. To the
seeker of thrills it will be drab and
uninteresting for I am no master of
biting sarcasm or of. stinging invec
tive, neither am I a Bolshevist, or an
atheist, or a preacher, or a journalist,
and more than these I am not a
knocker. At last, someone has risen
up from the common people to “sup
There has come to the campus infor
mation about conditions in the univer
sities of Europe. I’ll not characterize
these conditions as “terrible” or “ter
irific;” each person can put his own
(valuation on them. They are facts,
however, and they have impressed me.
Mile. Bidgrain, coming directly from
Europe, said that actual starvatioi
and nakedness were the problems of
those students and that one-thirrl of
them were in such a condition that
they couldn’t go on without help. A
cable from an American in Central
Europe says that 50,000 or more stu
dents will have to quit, and many of
them die, unless American stndents
send help in a hnrrv, and that, on ac
count of the rates of exchange, only
a very small amount, the cost of one
dance, from every American student
would be enough. A dollar will buy
30 meals there, and they only get one
a day at that.
The signs on the booth in front of
the library say “Is it nothing to you?”,
and that sort of worries me. We have
said a lot about “freedom” and
“honor” on the campus; I wonder if it
is too puritanical and unfashionable
to mention “conscience” and “duty.”
Somehow they seem sort of insistent
in this particular case and I’m not
going to be able to “spend” anything
more till T have sent everything I pos
| sibly can to these students.

Sketching and Painting
In the work of the artist there is a decided difference between
mere sketching and the final oil painting.
Like wise there is a great difference between snapping a
camera at a posed subject and making a photo-portrait. The
art of posing, development, retouch and printing all enter in.
Because of our attention to these particuliars we are able to
turn out a superior photo-portrait.
