Give It a Trial
Because of an apparant opposition to the present plan of carrying
out the Junior Week-end program which developed on the campus
recently, the student council and the Junior class has taken cogniz
ance of the matter and has been investigating a plan for a Junior
week end of more far reaching results, and which would prove har
monious to all. The Greater Oregon Committee met and devised a
plan which means a greater festival occasion for a greater university.
And after a number of representative students had appeared before
the council, some opposing the new plan and some favoring it, that
body adopted the proposed plan of the Greater, Oregon Committee.
To sum up the difference between the proposed plan and the old
method, it can be said that in this new plan is a rushing asset to the
entire University; while in the old the rushing asset was to the or
The student, council believed that the chance to exploit the Uni
versity to the prospective students throughout the State as outlined
in this plan was too great to be overlooked. Believing this and
weighing the arguments both for and against carefully before ar
riving at this decision, the student council has exercised its duty as
outlined in the constitution of the associated students "to assume
charge of all items of importance in which the students may be di
rectly interested and which are not specifically ascribed to the Ex
What the student council has decided in this matter should be ac
cepted by the heads of organizations, yet there are many of them who
are opposing the plan on the grounds that they do not wish to en
tertain anyone whom they do not know or whom they did not invite
here on I heir own accord.
It is of course the desire of the student council to arrive at a
solution which will be in accordance with the best interests of the
entire student body. It has attempted to do this by taking coguiz
anee of the opposition to the old plan of Junior Week-end and by
adopting this new solution. Until a better plan is advanced this one
should be supported and given a fair trial.
Reduction in the heavy expense has been advocated and here is a
plan which will materially slice the costs ot the festival occasion.
Ten guests will be apportioned to each organization, the campus
luncheon will be an all university affair, the University will furnish
the entertainment in the form of athletic contests, there will be no
necessity for the elaborate dinners, breakfast dances and the other
competitive social functions which are responsible for that ‘‘I’m glad
it’s all over” feeling. The week-end can be cut to two days, begin
ning with the canoe fete which is distinctly an Oregon tradition
and should not be discontinued on Friday night and ending with
a campus open house on Sunday, at which time the guests can visit
the campus buildings and the living organizations. Saturday will
bo a day id' athletic entertainment.
Until a better plan is suggested, which the Emerald does not be
lieve will be suggested, then it is the duty of the students to get
behind the one adopted by the student council and give it a fair and

To tho Editor:—
When Eve ate the rosy apple back
in those glorious days of the garden
somebody had to pay. Rut is there
evidence anywhere that Adam alone was
the goat ? No, Eve bore her skaro of
tho expense as a lady should and now
we arise to enquire where came to being
the vicious system which demands that
the male of the species must dig down
and pay always and inevitably? In what
degenerate age did man first reach into
his jeans and say “This is on me, my
dear.’’? That first act has led to the
establishment of an evil which threatens
to tear down the co-educational structure.
It is not too late to squash it now.
The average college woman is sub
sidized from home. She is in most cases
well supplied with money for which,
under the present system, she has but
one use over and above the routine col
lege expenses and that is to invest in
clothes, which the writer believes and
whole.heartedly to be a commendable in
vestment. But there it all stops and the
co ed is left with her bankroll. Not so
the college man. Ho too must buy his
clothes, pay his routine expenses but out
of a sum which averages far less than
the per capita wealth of the woman.
But here’s the rub. He and ho alone
pays for the dances, for the movies,
tho choc malts, for tho flowers and all
the other indispensable luxuries of col
lege life. She shares and he pays. Men
crave to be gentlemen; it's in their
blood to provide for the wants of the
weaker ones but the pace is killing and
so this writer makes a candid sugges
l.et piggers carry with them on all
parties a smalt sized dice box fully
equipped, (live the women now a month
in which to become proficient in rolling
the bones and then let’s start even.
Roll ’em and see who pays.
A Senior (broke)
To the Editor:
\ tremendous mistake was made by
the heads of the houses when at a com
mittee meeting they voted down the pro
posed Junior Week-end plan of inviting
guests. A few voted for it, but the
majority of the presidents of the living
organizations fa lied to realize that they
were deliberately turning down the uni
versity, unwilling to sacrifice their own
ends to further those higher.
The effort is to make Junior week end
guests of the t'niversity, not of living
organizations. To make Junior Week
Something Nifty for
end a rushing event for the University,
not for fraternities and sororities. Those
who supported the plan were farsighted.
They saw this selective plan, with the
high school students themselves choosing
their delegates, would bring better stu
dents to the University, would make the
institution more democratic, and more
powerful throughout the state. They
realized the vast amount of excellent
publicity this plan would bring.
On the other hand, those who voted
against the plan refused to see that
they were allowing their personal in
clinations to interfere with a wise and
expedient plan for a better University.

Andy Smith as Proud of Bruin’s Class

fornia’s Varsity football squad marks,
averaged four tenths above the mini
mum satisfactory grade as set by the
University last semester. These figures
stand, in direct opposition to state
ments made by heads of Eastern col
leges to the effect that football is det
rimental to scholastic work.
When confronted with these fig
ures “Andy” Smith, football coach of
the University said “I’m just as proud
of the scholastic record made by the
boys as I am of their field work.”
“It takes brains to play football. A
physical marvel without aggressiveness,
obedience, concentration of mind and
determination can never be one of the
high class athletes that are required
by our teams.”
LIFE-SAVING NOT POPULAR
Class Will be Abolished Unless More
The life-saving course which was re
cently offered by the school of physical
education will be discontinued immedi
ately uness more turn out for the work,
according to Gerald Barnes, who is in
structor of the course.
Only one or two men have shown any
interest so far, said Mr. Barnes, and he
does not think that a class should be
conducted in the subject with. such a
poor turnout. The man who can pass
tests after taking the course will be
given a Bed Cross Life Saving Certifi
cate which should encourage more to
take the subject.
