Matinees, Morris Chairs, and Magazines
Matinees, an insatiable love of dancing, and a profound apatliy
for studies, athletics and activities are threatening the University.
Among the younger generation of students especially, there is a class
which neither studies nor takes part in activities. Fireplace con
versations in the men’s groups are centering less and less on athletics
and more and more on pink teas and movie idols.
Traditions and college spirit mean little to this class of people. An
athletic victory is of no consequence. Assemblies are only to be toler
ated if there is no way to escape attendance. And to them, rallies are
insipid unless they offer an opportunity to evade class work. A pro
posal to make a change in the form of student government excites no
spark of interest.
Colleges have always been bothered by this type of ’students. There
have always been those to whom a university education meant four
years, or more, of social, life—the more exciting, the better. There is
the social side of college life, of course, and it should not be neglected.
But there are other things which are at'least as important. It is ab
surd to spend all the time on one phase.
Conditions are getting worse at Oregon. Perhaps it is noticeable
because of the evident serious purpose in the first year or two after the
.war. There have been a great many ex-service men in the University
who have helped to eliminate the purposeless element. But the stu
dents are getting younger and with grater immaturity returns the
apathetic type.
The situation is far from humorous, and if any vestige of college
spirit is to be maintained disciplinary measures will have to be taken.
If “cake-eaters” are to be eradicated some of the old-fashioned
methods will have to be revived. Why not a real outburst of college
spirit? Some of the “Lounge Lizards” might be made into real “he
men” if the proper measures were taken.
Now is the time to get the campus cleaned up. Rubbish should be
burned and weed lots made into attractive lawns.

Directions Given on Granite Base of
Solar Time Recording Instru
ment Shows Method
The sudden arrival of spring has
brought the same old question that has
to be answered every year. "IIow does
the sun-dial work*” Spring brought
the curiosity, but it also brought the
sun; without which the dial near the
administration building has been all
winter merely a block of granite sur
mounted by a gun metal plate.
To read the May memorial sun-dial,
according to directions on a plate on
the side of the granite base, and also
posted in the library, one must first
add 12 minutes, 20 seconds to the solar
time shown on the dial. To get the
solar time read as though the dial were
tfia face of a watch, and the shadow
pointer projecting at an angle from
the face were the small hand of the
watch. The hours are numbered in
large Roman tigures.
For the next step, look on the direc
tion plate and find the approximate date
on which you are trying to find the
time. Opposite this date you will find
a certain number of minutes, preceded
by the word "fast” or. "slow”; which
means that if your watch is set that
number of minuts faster or slower than
the sun-dial, plus 12 minutes, 20 sec
onds, the result on the watch will be
Western Union, Naval Observatory,
Regulated livery Hour.
.lust how the exact equations are
found, does not concern the curious
any more than do the intricacies of an
lugersolt. But it is interesting to note
that, before anyone knew anything
about the sun and its relation to the
earth, this instrument was used by the
ancients as their sole means to tell time.
And it is more curious that these poo
pie, knowing that ill some way the
solar time varied with the seasons of
the year, and in different localities,
worked out similar equations, by which
one dial could be used anywhere.

Law Professor Will Discuss
“The Woman Juror”
The largest audience he has ever ad
dressed will hear Prof. Justin Miller
of the law school, when, on Friday,
March 2, he gives a lecture on “The
Woman Juror” from the radio tower of
the Oregonian, in Portland. Mr. Miller
has addressed audiences of varying
sizes, when on the faculties of Stanford,
Montana and Oregon universities, as
well as when he was district attorney
of King county, California, but the one
he will address by radio will probably
be the largest he has ever spoken to,
says Alfred Powers, assistant director
of the extension division, in charge of
University radio lectures.
This lecture will be the fifth to be
given under University auspices, and
will be heard by those “listening in”
for hundreds of miles. The idea of the
extension division in giving these radio
lectures is to present topics of current
interest by men who, through study and
experience, are especially fitted to talk
on them. The lectures are in popular
form and have been a pleasing addition
to the radio programs, Mr. Powers says.
Mr. Miller’s talk about the woman
juror is regarded as very timely, for the
subject is one tliat is being much dis
cussed by women’s clubs as well as by
members of the bar. Mr. Miller had an
article in the December number of the
Oregon Law Review on this subject and
also addressed the district attorneys of
the state at their last annual meeting
concerning the matter.
The women oi uregon are now quali
fied for jury service, and in his article
in the Law Review Mr. Miller pays
a high tribute to their individual intelli
gence and fairmindedness. Women were
at first reluctant to serve upon juries,
he said, but are gradually beginning to
realize the responsibilities of and the
necessity for this new privilege or duty,
and are taking a greater interest in it.
Women have been allowed to serve on
juries in Oregon only since 1921, so
it is too soon, Mr. Miller says, to know
the general effect their presence on
juries will have, but the attorneys and
judges of the state are of the opinion
that it will be possible to get a higher
type of woman juror than of man juror.
The Oregon law also provides that in
cases where minors, under 18 years are
either defendants or complaining wit
nesses that half the jury shall be wo
men, but this provision is not always
carried out.
Journalism Student Gives Interesting
Sidelights on Recent Reporting
Experience at Salem
Interesting sidelights and “inside
dope” on the recent session of the Ore
gon legislature were given to members
of Dean Alen’s editing class yesterday
morning by Margaret Scott, senior in
the school of journalism, who was on
the staff of the Oregon Voter during
the final weeks of the session.
Many of the legislators’ debates were
long and heated, Miss Scott said in
her informal address to the class. She
cited an incident when one of the sena
tors was so engrossed in his attack on
a measure that lie used language which
would not pass muster in a parlor, then
when lie turned around and saw Miss
Scott taking notes for the Oregon Vot
er’s legislative, service he humbly of
fered her a peppermint.
Evidence that the experience in cov
■ ring the state legislature was an edu
cation in itself is the fact that Miss
Scott is conversant with all the laws
discussed and passed by the legislative
Editor C. 0. Chapman of the Voter
was much pleased with the work which
Miss Scott did while working for his
publication and expressed his gratitude
in a note to Dean Allen. Miss Scott
will speak this morning to the class in
In a letter to the editor, a correspon
dent asks whether, in “Singed Wings,”
Hebe Daniels is a moth, a butterfly or
an angel?
Miss Daniels is neither. She is a
beautiful cafe dancer, member of a once
proud and wealthy Spanish family. The
title of “Singed Wings” is taken from
scenes in the picture where Miss Dan
iels, clad in a moth costume, performs
a “Motl. Dance.” “Singed Wings” is
a Paramount production and will be
seen at the Rex theater today. Bebo
Daniels and Conrad Nagel have the
featured roles.

Editor Emerald:
With the coming of spring there has
been an increased amount of parking
of cars on South Alder street in the
‘wee small hours of the morning.’ It
is not this fact that the writer wishes
to object to but to the fact that most
of the ears park there will all lights
turned out. You see the w-riter is the
pressman for the Emerald and has to
ride to work about 1:30 a. m. on his
bicycle and sometimes when the cars
get too thick it makes it rather incon
venient for him to find a passage
through which he can take his bicycle.
Here are a few suggestions to those
who are parking on the aforesaid street
in the,wee small hours of the morning
that will help to relieve the congested
1. Leave dimmers on at least one
2. Don’t park in the middle of the
street, especially crosswise.
3. Leave enough room between cars
so that there will be a space for a
bicycle to pass through without danger
of wrecking it.
4. Don’t park on the turns.
If these simple rules are observed
it will be greatly appreciated by the
pressman and will avoid going to the
expense of having a traffic cop there
to keep ■ the streets clear.
The Pressman for the Emerald.
To the Editor:
Last week some .genius, hiding his
light under a bushel known as Interest
ed, took some little pains to tell me that
there is only one and not two kinds
of rhythm and went on to explain that
meter is not different from the har
monies of prose form. This entails the
proof that the presence of meter is not
different from its absence, and that dif
ference of degree do not constitute rad
ical differences of quality. This is all
very interesting and I would like to
have this person come out of the bush
es and prove these things for us.
