Oregon Daily Emerald VOLUME XXIII. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1922. NUMBER 71 RATTLESNAKES No Longer Standard For Writing Prescriptions and ARE DISPLACED As Doctor’s Assistants In University Dispensary BY FLU GERMS ——— By Jay Dee - The day has come when rattlesnakes give way to ‘ fluenza ’ pains and aches. The boys and girls stir up a cough and quarts of medicine do quaff, because dry law wasn’t meant to hold it down to one per cent. They stand in line from dawn to dark and ever pass this same remark: “ I have a cough I need a drink, I want the medicine that’s pink.” It is remarkable, I’m sure, how soon sour swabs such cases cure. • • • Some fellows come with thirsty grin; wait half an hour; are taken in. The nurse points out a little chair and says, ‘‘Young man, sit right down there.” He takes his post with languid ease and starts to talk with rusty wheeze. ‘ ‘ A little syrup’s all I need, I’m just a trifle off my feed. There is a tickle in my throat that sorta gets my nanny goat. ’ ’ And while he tells his tale of woe the nurse prepares a tonsil hoe. She dips it in some bitter dope while she remarks, ‘‘In life there’s nope.” And then before he makes complaint his throat and larnyx she does paint. She sprays his nose with oil of coal and knocks the poor boy for a goal. He staggers out with burning mouth, forgetful of his former drouth. ‘‘The flu germs ne’er will bother me, I’ll not survive the remedy. I came for drink, remained for spray, and now disheart ened go my way. Take warning, all ye thirsty ones, all is not alcohol that runs. ’ ’ So saith our hero, who’s so soaked in oil he’d burn up if he smoked. But it may happen, after all, that he has saved a doctor’s call. To keep from walking up the hill another man is sick for drill. He hobbles in with steps infirm and says, ‘ ‘ I got a funny germ. It makes me caugh, con tract and sneeze and thus creates an awful breeze. I really think I have the flu, now honest, nurse, I think I do.” She feels his pulse, pulls out his tongue, looks down his throat at either lung. And when she hits his diaphargm, he is as gentle as a lamb. He thinks he’s slick, the little cuss, to make her go to all that fuss. She stops a second, just to think, and then hands out some pills of pink. ‘ ‘ Take one of these between each meal and let me know then how you feel. ’ ’ That night the lazy little pest scarce had a single hour of rest. Such things are common every day is what the patient nurses say. They come, they go, they wait, they stall, in waiting room or in the hall. But in ; a time flu germs thick ’tis better to be j sprayed than sick. A stitch in time saves nine, ’tis said, and sprays may keep you out of bed. So while the festive dances wait the flu germs wage their war of hate. And like the wars of other years this con flict too has profiteers. They are the ones who sleep till ten and tell the prof they ’re sickly men. It all may seem a profit grand but don’t forget you ’re in your land and profits, as you ought to know, are without honor where they grow. So best attend you’re morning class and then you’ll have a chance to pass. And when this epidemic’s done you may pull down a mark of one. It’s better to be sprayed and well than down with flu and sick as-! RESOLUTION MADE AGAINST PAYING OF COLLEGE ATHLETES Sports on Coast Considered Cleanest in Country by President Campbell 5 COLLEGES REPRESENTED Executives Will be Held For Enforcement of Rules and Giving Information The resolution against the policy of paying college athletes which was passed at a meeting of four Pacific coast conference colleges and univer sities of the northwest and the au thorized representative of another was not the result of serious conditions on the coast, according to President P. L. Campbell, who attended the meeting. He declared that the concensus of opinion among the delegates was that college athletes on the Pacific coast are cleaner than in many sections. The action on the matter of paying athletes was not the purpose of the meeting but came up incidentally. The main object was the collection of data for inter changing, possible economics, discus sion of budgets, and questions of scholarship. Five are Represented President Campbell met with Presi dents W. J. Kerr of Oregon Agricul tural College, E. O. Holland of Wash ington State College, and A. H. Upham of the University of Idaho. E. B. Stevens, executive secretary of the Uni versity of Washington represented that college. The meeting was altogether informal. “The conference rulings and the resolution passed are based on honesty and sincerity,” said President Camp bell. He thinks that amateur sport must be kept clean and thinks that the fhethod named in the resolution of making the president of the college responsible will prove effective. Presidents Empowered A significant paragraph in the reso lution reserves for the presidents the right to review over any acts of the Pacific Coast or Northwest intercol legiate conferences. The resolution as adopted is as fol lows: “In view of the considerable pub licity given in the last few weeks of al leged attempts by eastern colleges to at tract athletes by financial considera tions, the executives of the state sup ported colleges and universities of the northwest desire to reaffirm the follow ing principles: “First—That no athlete shall remain in good standing in any institution who is known to receive money for playing, or unreasoable compensation for any employment given him during any part of the academic year, in consideration of his athletic ability. “Second—That each executive shall assume responsibility for the applica tion of this principle in his own insti tution and shall cooperate with each other executive in informing him he garding any reports or suspicious re (Continued on page four) Are Janitors Imaginativer “Yes” Says Emerald Scribe t’pon casual thought, the life of a janitor would seem drab and uninterest ing, but there is more to a janitor’s job than the mere sweeping and dusting Some of them have highly developed im aginations, some take great pride in their work, some live for the memories of the past, some for the hopes of the future. What student has ever noticed the picture of Mt. Hood in the marble wall of Johnson Hall. Probably few, but it is there, and was pointed out to a re porter yesterday by William Leward, the janitor who has charge of that building. Mr. Ledward takes especial pride in keeping the marble of the corridors spotlessly clean, and his fertile imagin ation has seen pictures in the designs of the stone. He pointed out to the reporter a butterfly, the head of a lion, a snow capped mountain, and other mark ings which the average person would not notice. “It’s lots of work to keep all the marble and glass clean,’’ he said, “but it's worth it.” The next man visited by the inquisi. tive reporter was John Boetcher, who has charge of the men’s gym. All the boys know “Old John.” who during gym hours sits in his little cage and passes out towels to the aspirant athletes. Mr. Boetcher has been in charge of the gym nasium for the past two years. ‘ ‘ They are a pretty good bunch of boys,” he said, ‘‘and I get along fine with them.” ‘‘There’s nothing interesting about me,” said S. J. Ryder, janitor of Me | Clure Hall. He ceased sweeping for a moment and leaned upon his broom. Mr. Ryder has been writh the Uni versity three years, and during that time I has taken care of McClure Hall and the journalism shack. He came originally from Wisconsin, and worked in a planing mill before taking up his present duties. ‘ ‘ What is your opinion of students in general ” he was asked. ‘‘First rate,’’—and he want on with his sweeping. J. H. ('oBsman, whose headquarters are Villard Hall, came next on the list. The reporter might have guessed without asking, that the stalwart figure and brawny arms belonged to an ex-black smith. Mr. Cossman is the father of two Oregon graduates, James Cossman, ’16, and Leo Cossman, ’20, as well as one son, Henry, now attending the University. He (Continued on page two) MEN’S GLEE CLUB WORKS HARD FOR HELIG CONCERT New Members to Feature, Appearance In Portland; Evans and Members Have Stiff Schedule The success of the men's glee club concert last Saturday night has resulted in new effort being put forth by Di rector John Stark Evans and the club in preparation for the Portland concert, which will be held in the Helig Theatre, Wednesday, February 15. A number of new songs and stunts have been added to the program, says the director, who is planning a stiff schedule of practice for the next two weeks. The Portland end of the advertising, necessary to make the coming concert a success, will be handled by James Sheehy, formerly student body presi dent, now employed on the reportorial staff of a Portland newspaper. The glee club manager will direct the cam paign from the campus by means of cor respondence. There is the possibility of another home concert to be held in the Eugene theatre later in the year for the Eugene people and students who did not hear the first program.

ASSEMBLY SPEAKER TO DNSS HEEDS OF SOCIETY TODAY Dr. Herbert Willet, of Chicago, Known Over Country as Excellent Talker ADDRESSES ARE FORCEFUL Members of Faculty Praise Eloquence; Religious Themes Taken “The Nation’s New Program,” will he the subject of Doctor Herbert Lock wood Willet of the University of Chi cago, at the assembly today. Dr. Wil let, who is professor of Semetie lan guages, is very well known as an in structor, and has a reputation through out the country as an excellent speaker. He is visiting the coast on businoss conected with the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ. In his address today Dr. Willet will point out the needs of the nation in social, educational, and Christian branches of society today. Important moral and religious questions will be discussed, and remedies for the prob lems now facing this country will be offered. Dr. Willet is described by persons on this campus who have heard him, as one of the finest platform orators in the country. He is coutinually in de mand, and speaks every year for the Mother Chautauqua in New York. He is described by M. H. Douglass, li brarian, as an excellent speaker, pos sessing not only a great deal of ability, but a personal magnetism as well. “I regard him as one of the best speakers I have ever heard,” said Mr. Douglas, “and the students will hear one of the finest addresses of the year.” Praise Given Speaker Professor E. E. De Cou, while a graduate student at the University of Chicago, had many opportunities to hear Doctor Willet, and says of him, “He is a man of very fine appearance, ti luiiurui uraiur wun a j^rrat cuimmmu of language, and possesses marked de scriptive power. His audiences are wonderfully charmed and swept away by his eloquence and inspirational force.” His addresses, as a rule, statead Professor He Cou, deal with moral or religious themes broadly, and never in a partisan or sectarian way. While in Eugene, Dr. Willet will speak at the Eugene Chamber of Com merce at a luncheon, and at 1 o’clock will address the Eugene Ministerial association on matters pertaining to the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ. From 3 to 5 a conference will be held at the campus T. M. C. A., at which matters dealing with religious work will be discussed.

He was ordained to the Chris tian ministry in 1899, and has been very prominent in religious work. He is the author of many books and articles on religious philosophy, and world politics, and is one of the editors of the Christian Century, a religious periodi cal published in Chicago. Dr. and Mrs. Willet will leave for San Francisco late this evening. ALUMNI REPORT EXPECTED Three Phases of Work of Y. W. C. A.

Mr. Collister Wheeler of Portland, who has charge of the Bed Cross water first aid will be in charge. Mistake Brings Wild West Tang To “The Shack" Not so many years ago when “ye editor" tacked an erroneous state ment after the name of one of the “bad men” of the west, that indi vidual immediately armed himself with his two six shooters and “went gunnin" for the first mentioned. Carl Newbury, with a steely glint in his eye, might have given out the ' impression that this was in the “good old days” of the West, to anyone who saw him in the vicinity of the Emerald shack yesterday. He had everything but the artillery. Here's the reason; in a news article treating the Junior Week-end meet ing, which appeared in the Emerald yesterday morning Carl was declared to have pointed out “that the pri mary purpose of Junior Week-end should be to sell the ‘preppers’ to one’s particular living organization.” Now, the copy which an honest and thoroughly trustworthy reporter turned in read as follows: “the pri mary purpose of Junior Week-end should be to sell the University to the high school student and inciden tally to sell the ‘prepper’ one’s par ticular living organization.” The superfluous number of “sells” in the paragraph were too much for the overeager linotype operator who was looking towards a lightning finish on the night’s work (he jumped the first sell.) As a result, the story as tacked on Carl took on an entirely foreign aspect, and Carl took on an entirely foreign aspect in ; his diligent search for “ye editor.” , —But the latter could not be found, so possible bloodshed was avoided and the eternal triangle,—Carl, ye editor and the Emerald “live happily ever afterward. If Carl will call we'll give him the name of the lino type operator. DEAN FOX TO PERMIT PARTIES WHEN HEALTH BAN LIFTS I Rain, Rest and Indoors Suggested as Cold Cure; Faculty Not Immune The silver lining in the health situa tion eloud appeared yesterday when Dean Fox agreed to make arrangements for having the dances which wore post poned by the health ban. Dofinite dates for the dances will probably be made when the ban is lifted. The epidemic of grip, while not seri ous, continues and the infirmary is full. Only fifteen students can be taken care of at one time and ns soon | as each one is sufficiently well he is sent home and another one takes his place. These colds and cases of grip seem to hit folk in their weakest, spots. Tn one it affects the head; in others, the bronchial tubes and lungs. Rest and being indoors seem to be the most efficacious remedies. A nurs^ at the infirmary said “Tf it would ! only rain T believe they would all get ■well. Oregonians don’t seem to thrive on cealr cod weather.” The faculty has not been immune and several teachers are unable to meet classes this week on account of illness. Miss Ethel Wakefield of tho TTniver i sity high is included in the list as well as O. A. Gregory, professor of school ^ administration, and Eblon Griffin, pro fessor of history. Elnine Gooper is do ing substitute work at the Eugene high school during the Illness of the history instructor there. TO MEET AGGIES IH DUAL BATTLE HERE Coach Bohler Expects Men to Show Much Improvement in Coming Contests STUDENT TICKETS NEEDED Wrestling Match and Frosh Rook Game to Serve as Curtain Raisers From the standpoint of dope Oregon certainly has but a small chance to an nex either of the two games to be played with the five from Oregon Agri cultural College on Friday and Satur day nights at the Armory but according to Coach George M. Bohler the varsity is prepared to givo them a close game and while they do not expect to beat the speedy Ags they intend giving them the fight of their lives. “It’s their year to win alright” said the varsity basketball mentor when interviewed in regard to Oregon’s chances with the collegians, “for they have a good team over there but we will give them a close, even game, and I expect the boys to show a marked superiority over their work in the games against Stanford, and that is what we are after this year.’.’ Aggie Thought Strong In spite of their two defeats at the hands of the speedy Sundodgers the Ag gies still loom up as one the strongest tenms in the conference and they are out to avenge the four stinging defeats administered to their quintet by the varsity last year. In Hjelte, their center, and Captain Stinson the col legians have two speedy and consistent point getters and both these men will be in excellent shape for the fray with the varsity. Altogether the invading five will present a strong and well bal anced aggregation with Richards and Rose guards, Stinson, L. Gill and A. Gill forwards and some good substitutes in Luke Gill, Fernely nnd Tlerson. Preliminary events will precede both games, on Friday night the wrestling matches between the Aggies and Ore gon will commence at 7 while on Satur day evening it will be necessary that the Frosh-Book game get under way promptly at 6:45 in order that the var sitv-Aggie game may be over and the floor cleared bv 9 o’clock at which time the basketball contract, makes way for the regular Saturday night town dance. Frosh Game In Afternoon The first Frosh Rook contest will be elagod at 4 o’clock Friday afternoon in ptead of ns a preliminary to the varsity game ns originally intended, while the second will be used ns a curtain raiser for Saturday night’s battle between the rival institutions. The games between the freshmen should be well worth watching, ns the dope is about even up between the two fives. According to the graduate manager’s office University students nre going to be required to have their student body tickets for admission into the games this week-end and absolutely no stu dents will be admitted except on pre sentation of their student body tickets or suitable identification with a four bit piece. Emerald’s Radio Sender in and C-r-r-ack Rack! Rings in Shack The Emerald wireless has finally added its cracking and hissing to the sounds of the campus. The radio boys have not money enough to install a “silent” set. But all things will come in time. Starting from humble begin nings, the campus radio stands nearly completed, one of the best collegiate stations on the coast. Messages have been received for a number of days, but the sender has been only recently installed. Any one who has visited a radio sta tion will realize at once how the radio “bug” gets people. Through she sshack, where the journalism students wander o’ nights, amid stacks of filed newspapers, and around desks and ta bles where, with lights ablaze, type writers clatter, and Emerald work is done, while University press goes full blast,—strains of music and conversa tion from California are heard. Those who pass the little wire “cage” where the radio sending and receiving set is placed form the habit of dropping in and inquiring of the operator, “What’s the chances for a little musief” Bo bound up are they in their little college world that they are well nigh hvpno tized by this live-wire touch of the | outside, which brings within earshot the sounds of hundreds of miles away. Three little black boxes on the tele graph table, a few coils of wire; a graphone horn to act as a reproducer; an aerial above, and a “grounder" running out of the shack to the water hydrant, and that is all. Hut it is enough; talk to some of the “radio boys at Oregon” and watch their eyes ligtit up as they tell yon of the possibil ities of the Emerald’s new wireless service. “Our call number is 7ARK,” said Ronald Woodward, radio service editor. “Ho far we have heard some music nearly every night, from Han Francisco and Htockton, both in California, and from Halt Lake. Ltst night we heard the ‘Rcxtet from Lucia’ from the Fairmont Hotel in Han Francisco. “We are going to open officially on Monday, and start by exchanging com pliments with O. A. C., even if we lose the game. We are going to report all the rest of the games that are left this season, and we are also going to handle all of the Intercollegiate news service for the Emerald. We are going to try, too, to handle individual mes sages for students. “Our aerial is a 200-meter length or about 125 feet. We can cover the field from about Han Riego well up into Canada. Ho all of our football games will he payed at home next year, as far as quick news is concerned.
