Some Unwise Conference Rules
Some of the weaknesses of the rules of the Pacific Coast Con
ference have been brought into the limelight recently by the necessity
of securing the permission of the other members of the conference
before a competitive track meet of the prep schools of Lane county
could be held here on the campus. The rule forbidding interscholastic
athletic competition to be held under the auspices of the members
of the conference, sprung up a few years ago when the University and
the agricultural college at Corvallis aired their views before a meet
ing of the conference about the state interscholastic track meet then
being held in Eugene.
Since it was drafted the rule has been almost universally dis
regarded by other members of the conference in staging sectional
and state-wide intcrscholastic tournaments and meets. The rule of
course succeeded in abolishing the state interscholastic meet held
here, which was a great disappointment to the high schools of the
state and which has in all probability been one of the direct causes
for the decline in track and field sports in the prep schools. Coaches
are free to admit that baseball as a sport is now taking practically
all of the time in the high schools of the state rather than an equal
division, which was the case a few years ao.
No conference rule should abolish the right of its members to
sponsor tournaments and meets which will serve as an impetus to
high school athletics, building thereby a substantial foundation for
physically fit men. Petty jealousies and enmity can well afford to
be overlooked in a cause for the common good.
Inspiration for Western Minds
“America is the seed-field of the generations, where humanity
drives its ploughshare into virgin soil and sows afresh,” says a writer
in the New York Evening Post. “Europe may abide in the light of
setting suns, and may be seen often in the glamor of it; but America
is in the light of rising suns. She is in the creative light which bids
If America is in the light of rising suns, and it is that, surely we
in this west, so new, so fertile, have every great heritage. Western
universities too are seeing their dawn; and soon, The Emerald be
lieves, one will no more think of “going east” for mere educational
advantages than easterners think now of coming to the west. It is
ever good to “go east” and to “go west,” but it is no longer neces
sary in the case of the former.
In bringing Pr. Zimmern to the campus today the University is
doing something which is sure to mean great things. Here is the hint
of what it might mean. “The University of Michigan has llobert
Frost, Princeton had Noyes, and other universities have their pilot
poets also,” says the same writer in the Post, “—just to give direction
and leading to the myriad-fold poetic impulse which is found in
American youth today.”
There it is, but only part of it. What a campus this would he if,
in addition to the increasingly excellent teaching staff there were
broilglit here as permanent fixtures not necessarily only a poet but
other men to give inspiration in this virgin soil.
Bitter Experience May Aid
Drastic steps to stop the mutilation of library books at the Uni
versity of California were taken recently by the undergraduate stu
dent affairs committee there when a junior student in the college of
commerce was suspended for such an act. The Daily Californian in
commenting upon the action of the committee, says:
“There are always an unfortunate few who can never learn their
lessons except through bitter experience. This student belonged to
this particular class. Three years in the University, three years in
which the agitation against the mutilation of books must have been
constantly coming to his attention, were not sufficient to make him
even stop and think when he cut a page from a library volume,”
Oregon lias struggled with this sort of “ rowdyism” and it
will apparently continue to struggle until some similar drastic action
is taken here.
The sense of honor and responsibility in this ease must, from all
indications, be instilled at the ccst of bitter experience. Appeals have
been made by the staff of tlit* library from time to time to end such
practices, and the disregard of these appeals lias already been too
plainly emphasized. California’s course should be ours.

To tho editor:
The recommendations for reducing
taxes received by the state tax investi
gation commission from citizens in
Eastern Oregon ought to make every
Oregon student sit up and take notice.
“Its the high cost of education that
makos taxes so high,” says one tax
payer; and another, “Children are be
ing taught all sorts of folderol, and
there are instructors for fads and fan
cies.” Cut down tho appropriations for
j the two state colleges, suggests Sena
tor Strayer of the 1921 legislature,
they have money now far in excess of
, what they need.
Undoubtedly, there are taxpayers all
i over the state who have the same
I thought as that expressed by these
East Oregonians. Undoubtedly, too,
j these taxpayers are sincere in their
belief that education is taking too much
tax money now; but they are misin
formed. Senator Strayer could not
know of the pressing need for more
j buildings and facilities at Oregon and
'then say that^jiis University is get
; ting too much money. The gentleman
! who called our studies “folderol” is
laboring under misapprehension. The
I taxpayer who said that we are spending
[too much money for education is not
aware of the facts.
I Two years ago, the taxpayers of this
state signified their confidence in our
higher educational system by passing
the millage bill, bnt from suggestions
given to the state tax body, it would
seem that there is reaction in some
quarters. Oregon students should take
cognizance of this reaction. This Uni
versity has merited the support given
it by the taxpayers, and it is up to
Oregon students to convey that fact
to them. When we go home for the
Easter vacation, we shonld inform our
neighbors and friends exactly what this
University is doing with the taxpayer’s
money, because in the light of such
information, they will be able to see
that such suggestions as those from
Eastern Oregon are without founda

STUDENTS’ FULL RECORD
TO BE GIVEN ADVISERS
Registrar Installs New System Which
Will Show University and
High School Work
A new system, whereby each faculty
adviser will be supplied with a com
plete record of each advisee’s high
school and University work, is being
installed in the registrar’s office.
The record will consist of a form
containing a detailed report of all work
done in high school and, for advanced
students, a complete record of subjects
taken in the University of Oregon and
a summary of any other college eredits
that the student may have.
New students must procure their
record sheets from the registrar and
present them to their adviser before
registration can be commenced. The
advisers will keep these record sheets
in their files and with the aid of the
grade sheet, keep them up to date.
The installation of the system re
quires much extra work on the part of
the registrar’s office for some two
thousand record blanks must be filled
out. The work has begun and it is
hoped to have it completed at the
opening of the Fall term.
In speaking of the new plan, Carl
ton Spencer, registrar, says it is but
a new effort of the registrar’s office
to be of genuine service to the faculty
and the students.

last night spoke to the students of the
University Law school, yesterday morri-'
ing. Mr. Bayley especially emphasized
lawyer to carry the principles of Chris
tianity into his work, by refusing to use I
the opportunities open to the practicing [
his client’s troubles to his own profit.
He cited instances from his own and
other lawyer’s experiences as proof of
his statements. Mr. Bayley, according
to Dean Hale of the school of law, de
clared that social service and not self
service should be the guiding principle
of the Christian lawyer.
