The Honor System For Athletics.
The action taken by the college presidents in Portland Monday
is a commendable one and should do much toward keeping the repu
tation of the colleges and universities of the west on the present high
plane as regards athletics. Such action as this should mean that we ,
of the West will be spared the scandals which have recently embar
rassed Notre Dame, Purdue and Illinois and which have thrown the [
entire field of college athletics in its worst guise into the limelight.
The honor system in college athletics might be suggested as aj
remedy in places where lucrative positions are sometimes flaunted
before the eyes of the high school athlete who is preparing to take
up his college work. The colleges and universities should have no
place for the man who holds out for the best “.iob” before he regis
ters. That type of man does not develop into the best athlete; his
ability is a commercial asset, he knows it, and the college knows it,
and it enters too much into his work. Both suffer in the long run.
Some critics maintain that such practices are carried on by some
of the institutions on the Pacific Coast. The Emerald does not take
a great deal of stock in these accusations; they are supported thus
far only by rumor,—and we recongnize their improbability.
The resolutions passed by the executives of the institutions will
do much to keep athletics on the Pacific Coast clean, if the authority
vested is exercised diligently. Let us all hope that it will be ex
ercised diligently and that the germ of the honor system in athletics
throughout the college world will be nurtured.
Stamp It Out.
The health service has decided to continue the ban for another
week ; let’s all aid in making the edict effective. An epidemic of this
nature although not serious destroys the morale of the campus and
clogs the well-oiled machinery of daily class work. It must be stamped
out and to stamp it out means that there must be cooperation.
Credit must la* given the health service and the infirmary for the
able manner in which they have been waging the war against the
grip epidemic. The untiring efforts of all connected with these in
stitutions,—for they have shown their worth as institutions,—are
deserving of the highest praise.

This is Mr. Constance's first o#r ill

J. \ Hawkins, who takes care of tlit
K. (>. T. C. barracks, is another new man,
this being his fust year on the campus.
Mr Hawkins has recently collie from
Washington He has a son who will bo
ready for college next year, and tin
father has chosen Oregon rather than
the t'liiversity of Washington.
“ \t first I was against military
training," he said when questioned by
the reporter, "but since working around
here I have found that many of the
things taught are worth while, and 1

Mr. White, “than to staud at this Isise

business administration building. lie,
also, is new on the campus this year,
after twelve years of work in a high
school near Tacoma.
“There is a fine bunch of students'
here," he said, “and I enjoy the work."
When asked for suggestions, he stated
that the work of all the janitors would
be considerably lessened if students
would bo a little more careful about
staying on the sidewalks instead of
cuttings across corners through the mud
The last call made by the news chaser
was on W. .1. Tuck at the Oregon build
ing. He was just coming in with a big
load of mail when he was cornered. Mr.
Tuck is short, fat. jolly, good-natured,
and as talkative as a phonograph. He
wears a big blue cap with an “ORE”
on the front lie knows all the stu
dents who come into his building a!
least by face, if not by name. Although
Mr. Tuck has only been in his present
position fourteen months, he had charge
of the library seven years ago. He has
been a resident of Eugene for the past
seventeen years, and he grew reminescent
of the times when there were no paved
streets or earlines in Hug- ue, when ti e
library was only a shack, and w ien IVan

ZIMMERN’S COMING URGED
To the Editor: In a recent edition,
which J read for the first time this
morning, you wish to know what stu
dents and faculty think about the de
sirability of having Alfred E. Zimmern
for a week of lectures. I have already
strongly urged the University admin
istration to invite Professor Zimmern
to the campus. In reply to your ques
tion, I may say similarly to you, that I
believe Professor Zimmern offers us a
unique opportunity which students and
faculty alike should eagerly seize. He
is a man whose work appeals not only
to the students of history. I look upon
his coming as an important episode in
the education of the students of sci
ence with whom I am closely associated.

PITY THE POOR. PIGGER
To the Editor: What in the world
shall we do?—is the campus cry at the
sad tidings that the noxious but neces
sary ban on dances will continue to
curb our capers this week-end! It’s
too chilly to stroll under the stars—•
coldness is not synonymous with com
fort—and if you went canoeing, you’d
probably find the canoe frozen fast in
the race ’way up there and get home
late, and it isn’t reasonable to go to
the moving picture shows—so of course
we won’t—because they are such a fer
tile field for friendless germs. Rig
gers might spend the evening playing
at the piggee’s house. (We offer this
suggestion merely because we happened
to think of it, not because it’s a good
suggestion.) They could play Musical
Chairs and Drop the Handkerchief.
They might even talk—they could dis
cuss Vachel Lindsay and other great
men of letters, like the Emerald staff
ana the track team, they count settle
the Junior Week-end controversy and
improve the administration. At ten
thirty the pigger would be glad it was
time to leave, and the piggee would be
glad too. Thus a pleasant evening
would have been enjoyed by none.
No joking, now, but the health ban,
disagreeable as it may be, is a necessary
evil that may not prove to be so very
evil. Students find that it is possible
to live through a whole evening with
MAN: BRUNT OF ALL EVILS
To the Editor: The Senior (broke)
has got the dope, I agree with him
with my hole pocketbook. He has
very subtly, and perhaps unconsciously,
analyzed the reasons for his “broke”
condition. Woman is the root of it all,
and, like the proverbial saying “Money
is the root of all evil; a little more root,
please,” he continues to howl, “a lit
tle more woman, please.” “A fool and
his money are soon parted, but not a
fool and his woman, or women, as the
case may be—the senior was broke.
In the meantime someone else makes
a deliberate attack on our shrinking
root, the proverbial kind, and says that
students in Europe are suffering from
lack of food and clothing. Why should
that worry me—that doesn’t have any
thing to do with the question of
whether I’ll be able to get my next ten
dates or not. Of course, said European
students may not have any dances, and
movies, and choc malts, and flowers to
fight the question of expense over, but
that makes him nearly as fortunate as
our college woman. We won’t have
any of these, either, if we keep on at
the present speed, unless we give up
the expense of clothes and food and so
forth that these students have wisely
Why don’t we make a world-wide ap
peal for help in maintaining our social
life? It might be a way to get Hie
women to stand their share for it is
very noticeable that they are always
the ones that are willing to help some
body else. Of course, they can do this
because we take them out, a few of
them. We must be excused—we are
broke. “Youth needs must have its
fling.” Who wTill say that we are as
inine in chasing this good-for-nothing
