A Remedy in Just Remuneration
An unmistakable trend in the direction of gifts to the higher edu
cational institutions throughout the country from alumni and friends
has been noted of recent years and only a few days ago an alumnus
of the University of Michigan made an anonymous award to the
school of law of that institution of over $5,000,000. A conservative
estimate ut the University of California brings forth the fact that an
average of $1,000,000 annually is presented to that institution by its
alumni. And there are a great many other colleges and universities
whose principal source of revenue today is not through a millage
tax, which is constantly in a precarious position and places the higher
educational institutions at the mercy of financial depressions and the
effects of constantly fluctuating markets, but is through the sub
stantial medium of gifts from alumni and friends.
In this state the gifts have been negligible, and only for the magni
ficent act of Mrs. Murray Warner in presenting the art collection, and
of Judge W. D. Fenton in donating to the law library, there has been
in recent years no substantial gift to the University. The gift of Mrs.
Warner coming at this time and creating a new department of the
University, is an excellent example of what such an act meins to the
University. The Warner art collection has been valued at nearly a
quarter million dollars, running well into half the amount which the
University receives annually from the thousands of taxpayers in the
great state of Oregon. A few gifts of this nature would make possible
a reduction of the millage tax.
The higher educational institutions of the State are performing a
public service, but it is not their desire to drain the tax-paying pub
lic to the last possible cent which can be extorted. The question of
the State’s duty in the matter of higher education has been dis
cussed many times since the cost of maintaining the institutions of
higher education have mounted so high. Some writers advocate fed
eral aid. others a promissory note plan, both excellent and probable
solutions in the end, but there is an immediate return which every
graduate of former years should consider seriously.
If the University has succeeded in ably fitting these graduates for
the positions in life which they now hold, has allowed them to attain
even a small degree of success whether it be in the highly specialized
line or as a result of a cultural and liberal education, then there must
be some compensation due that struggling University. The spirit of
loyalty to the University docs not end with a sentimental display of
feelings; rather does this spirit go on into the future holding ever be
fore the graduates the great service without compensation which it
has rendered to each and every one of them.
Oregon needs gifts and endowments from its alumni friends who
have attained the heights of success through the service which the
University has rendered. The immediate solution of the constantly
increasing costs of higher education lies in this plan of just remuner
ation. Excellent food for thought for the members of the graduating
class this year, and to be carried to those who have graduated before.
Why Not a Dad’s Day?
Oregon now has a traditions committee, created by an act of the
students in voting an amendment to the constitution at the recent stu
dent election. And now that the committee has been authorized it will
not be amiss to suggest that a new tradition which might properly
take its place among those which are dear to the students of the Uni j
versify, should be that of providing an annual “Dad’s Day.’’ The j
fitting observance of Mother’s Day on the campus this year was a!
credit to the students and the University and even then many of the i
Surely there is a place for Dad on this campus and the creation of
a traditional Dad’s Day should not be overlooked. The chance to
bring parents to the campus to acquaint them with true conditions
here will ultimately benefit all concerned. Dad’s Day might well
come in the fall term, for the added incentive of attending one of
the big games should provide a part of the entertainment program
which would appeal the more to the fathers. Why not the Dad’s

The Crow’s Nest
“These are times that try men’s
souls,” remarked Genghis Kahn as he
picked up a slaughter weapon and
carved a few classic cornices and Mon
golian entablatures in the columelli
form architecture of an obstreperous
Nuchen tax collector.
Having done this, it occurred to Mr.
Kahn that he was quite an all-around
athlete. So he gave his goodly Da
mascus blade several turns on the
grindstone, buckled on a bunch of amu
lets, held an earnest conversation with
his cross-eyed heathen god, gathered a
handful of the oriental brotherhood
about him, and rode forth unto the
fray. All told, he left in his wake the
largest Asiatic empire the world had
known, three or four chapters of beau
tifully romantic history, an amphi
dromical race of celestial warriors, and
a grandson by the name of Kublai who
became the victim of one of Shelley’s
Not many of us, when our sonls are
tried in such a manner, take the trou

that his own mother would fail to
recognize him. As a rule we are con

few cubits of brocaded profanity and
let it go at that. It is well that the
barbaric wrath of our forefathers no

If Genghis Khan had lived until to
day he would be about 720 years of
age. This would give him a record
for longevity nearly equal to the rec
ords of a great number of our living
Indian chieftains, which has nothing
to do with the case. Let us suppose,
however, that Genghis should come to
us as an undergraduate on the Oregon
campus. Under the circumstances, he
would be quite a venerable gentleman
and he might even have to walk with
Following him down “Hello Lane”
we would see him tip his hat and ex
change a friendly greeting with a
starry-eyed co-ed. The very next girl
on the path would receive from him a
clear, resonant “Hello!” and a bland
oriental smile. And she, being a mem
ber of the calico aristocracy, would
pass him up even as a gambler passes
up a white check. And Genghis, being
imbued with the modern spirit, would
be overcome with great joy and laugh
within himself, as we always do under

This is my first and last public ap
pearance in support of the “hello tra
dition.” I believe in it. I like the
friendly spirit of Oregon students.
Nothing is better than a whole-hearted
“hello,” full of good will, on a rainy
or a sunny morning.
Unfortunately, there are those among
us who are too tired to speak. Others
are too insipid to speak, and in this
classification are the ones who have
never heard of the sacred tradition.
Last and lowest are those of the afore
mentioned calico aristocracy who are
not fit to speak to ordinary folks.
It is not expected that this exposi
tion of human frailties will alter the
map of the world as did Mr. Khan after
his unpleasant encounter with the
Nuchen tax collector. I am not great
ly concerned when some classes of
people do pass me up disdainfully. I ’ll
probably amble on in my sublimely
foolish way without pining away to a
diadow. In truth, I take savage de-!

DEFINE electricity” said the Prof. The
class was mown down, one by one, like
so many whiskers. And then—“no one has
ever been able properly to define electricity
since its discovery.” And the smile dried
on his face!
Since 1840 Williams’ Shaving Soap has
been defined by hundreds of thousands of
college men with one word — perfection.
And it doesn't dry on your face.
Example—Williams’ Shaving Cream. At 7:50
vou can whip up a creamy mellow lather that
softens the heart of the
toughest stubble. Your
snickersnee slips along to
a slick job and a glove
smooth face—in time to
catch chapel at 8.
And the satisfaction
afterwards is almost inde
finable at that.
