More Time to Browse
“More time for browsing would be better,” is Dean Fox’s idea
for the revision of the college woman’s schedule, in a statement
printed in yesterday’s Emerald. “There is perhaps a tendency to
spend too much time in this so-called social life,” she thinks. The
question is applicable to men as well as to women and inquiries into -
the fundamentals of college training as it is. In the days before com
petition and practical ideas drove institutions to planes of highei j
scholastic requirements there was this time for browsing. \ et few
students knew how to browse, lias the interval brought a change l
It is the fault of the men and women themselves, rather than the j
college curriculum. Typical of American people, University stu
dents do not know how to spend leisure time. Amusing ourselves
hus become a business with us. We go into it with the same spirit
that our football teams go into games, to win. We want to get the
most out of our time, and at night we try to reckon whether or not
our amusement lias been worth while, whether it has paid us or not.
In short, the college curriculum and the social schedule are molded
to suit the characteristics of the student.
If wt! want more time for browsing—reading, walking, danc
ing, amusing or interesting ourselves without asking tor value re
ueived, we must show that we are interested in such development, If
students could learn to browse, twelve hours scholastic work might
perhaps be too much. It would be getting away from the “nine hours
to keep off probation” idea. It would be getting away from the
“ 186 hours to graduate” idea.
Dean Fox’s idea is a good one to think on, to turn over in you”
mind. If a genuine desire for leisure, for a time each day to browse
is instilled in people, the rearrangement of the whole scheme will
come. Think it over.
Every student is being asked to •contribute fifty cents lor the
campus luncheon at Homecoming time, and if the luncheon is to be
made a success the money will have to be collected from everyone.
The affair is one of the traditions of the University, and it is up to
the students to help to make it go over this year. It is extremely dif
ficult to solicit those who do not live in organizations, and the com
mittee has asked that the money be brought in. Cooperate with
them. Don’t wait to be asked two or three times, but come across
the first time.

VOLUME 2 SATURDAY, A. M. _NUMBER 1
Battling Bullfrogs Lead Big Field
White Crows, Winged Webfeet, Fordsons Fight for
Lead in Krier Name-the-Team Contest
Fast and furious has been the battle..
Enthusiasm has rolled and recked the
.campus until the faculty committee con
sidered closing school till the contest
closed. In other words the Kollege
Krier Name-the-Team contest has been
grinding on to a glorious end.
All indications seem to point to the
adoption of the artistic and symbolic
name of “Battling Bullfrogs” for all
athletic aggregations turned out by the
University. No doubt there is merit
in the name but ye editor thinks his
suggestion of “Battling Cocks, Game
for the Whole Game” much better. How
ever absolute fairness must mark this
contest, so since the bullfrogs have two
votes they must lead.
Among the many offerings received
was the very credible suggestion from
W. G. W. that all athletic groups be
known as the “Winged Webfeet” since,
as he pointed ont, football weather is
very suggestive of the title.
In handing in the suggestion for the
“Battling Bullfrogs” the author pointed
out that this animal is like unto the
Oregon athletic aggregations in that it
is fast of foot and hard to catch and
that it goes better the harder it rains
and the deeper the mud.
“The Oregon bunch can go over any
'stone wall in the conference,” said one
! contestant as he handed in his sugges
tion of “The Fordsons.”
So many letters of suggestion were
received by the judges that office hours
were closed and every one retired to
OBAK’S COLLEGE 'CENTER where
refreshments were taken on. There it
was decided to award the first prize of
the HAND PICKED BALE OF HAY to
the first name getting more than one
vote, the second to the next and so on.
One peculiar thing about the contest
was the fact that all the prize winning
suggestions were submitted by the

There was much learning but
little real knowledge in Galileo’s
time (1564-1642). Aristotle was
swallowed in bad Latin transla
tions. Ipse dixit. No one checked
him by what seemed vulgar,
Galileo fought against the
dead hand of tradition. He did
not argue about Aristotle, but
put him to the test. Aristotle led
his readers to believe that of two
bodies the heavier will fall the
faster. Galileo simply climbed
to the top of the Leaning Tower
of Pisa and dropped two un
equal weights. The “best peo
ple” were horrified; they even
refused to believe the result—
that the weights reached the
ground in equal times.
“Look at the world, and ex
periment, experiment,” cried
The biggest man in the 16th
century was not Galileo in pop
ular estimation, but Suleiman
the Magnificent, the Ottoman
Emperor, who swept through
Eastern Europe with fire and
sword and almost captured
Vienna. Where is his magnifi

right of experimental evidence.

Hardly an experiment is made
in modern science, which does
not apply Galileo’s results.
When, for instance, the physic
ists in the Research Laboratories
of the General Electric Company
study the motions of electrons
in rarified atmospheres,or exper
iment to heighten the efficiency
of generators and motors, they
follow^ Galileo’s example and
substitute facts for beliefs.
