Now and Forever
Two days of deliberate reflection on the Bovard-Bohler contro
versy bring a realization that the question must be settled now and
forever. The differences between the office of the dean of the school
and the coaching staff have done more to arouse discontent among
the alumni than any other factor. As long as the antagonism bursts
into flames at frequent intervals the state will extend little support
to University athletics.
Bohler merely stands for the present varsity coaching staff. The
issue is not between Bovard and Bohler, but it is between Bovard and
the varsity coaches. If Dean Bovard does not reverse his decision &
oust Bohler it will naturally follow that the others are to go. Per
haps the University could replace them. But the issue should be
made clear. Student sentiment on Bohler has little weight. Is there
any reason to believe that it would for any of the others?
When Dean Bovard became head of the School of Physical Edu
cation he undertook a difficult task. He was given an opportunity
to put physical education on a definite basis. It was a broad program
and it was not at all easy to introduce. Now, doughnut sports are on
a sound foundation. More men are taking part in athletics than ever
before. Another dean might have recognized varsity sports as a
stimulant to intramural games. Bohler has been asked this spring to
coach varsity baseball, freshman baseball—and to cap the climax to
do outside work other than doughnut baseball. It is too much to
ask one man to do. Bohler has the intramuraj program at heart and
realizes that he can do more for it by turning out winning varsity
teams than in any other manner. If the dean’s policy is to prevail
the campus must realize that the other coaches will soon follow
Bohler. In the interests of the University and of her athletics one
faction or the other must go.
By Way oif Explanation
Due to a misunderstanding on the part of an editorial writer for
the Sunday Emerald the last issue carried a short article upholding
the Junior class and the student council for the abolition of the Cam
pus Day tradition. The appearance of the article was entirely ae
cidental. The Emerald still contends that the action of the council
was a mistake. It still contends that some day Oregon will awaken
to find herself shorn of her traditions and her individuality.
Eventually, Why Not Now?
It was with the convenience of the students in mind that the new
plan of paying fees was devised. A great deal of the value of the
scheme will be lost if everyone waits until the last day or two. And
besides, the business office lias announced that no matter how long
the line the windows go down at three o’clock on May 7. Pay them

FAMOUS SCOTCH COLLIE ACTOR
Included in the all-star cast of “Migh
ty Lak’ a Rose,” the Edwin Carewe pro
duction for First National, now at the
Rex theatre, is Jean Bronte, a Scotch
collie, who bases her claim to stardom
on the many pictures in which she has
played an important role. Those who j
watched her performance in her last
picture, “Moonshine Valley,” called her
a real star, almost a human being. j
Joan, seeing herself on the screen for
the first time after the making of,
“Moonshine Valley” was quite excited.
She barked and ran from one to another
of the group assembled to watch the
picture, then settled down to watch her
shadowed self intently, growling now and
then at the mystery of the business.

BISHOP REMINGTON IS
TO SPEAK AT VESPERS
Athletic Minister Will Deliver
Mother’s Day Address
The Eight Bev. William P. Reming
ton, Episcopal bishop of Eastern Ore
gon, has accepted the invitation of the
University vespers committee to de
liver the annual Mother’s Day address
here Sunday, May 13.
Bishop Remington is serving his
first year in Oregon, having come to
this state in 3 922 from North Dakota
to take charge of the territory formerlv
under the supervision of the Bight
Rev. Bishop Robert L. Paddock. Bishop
Remington is credited by newspapers
as being a man of varied anl perhaps
unusual interests for one in a minis
terial position. He is an athlete, who
has approached world records in the
high jump, running broad jump and
hurdles. If he is not pitching for a
baseball team he prefers second base
to any other position.
Bishop Remington is said always to
have taken his religion with him when
entering an athletic contest. In 1900
he was one of the all-American team
entering the Olympic games at Paris,
where he is declared to have created
something of a sensation by praying be
fore entering a certain event.
The Bishop is interested in the work
of the American Legion, having served
six months overseas as a chaplain dur
ing the war. He is an advocate of play
grounds and public recreational move
ments, believing that they can be used
to safeguard our modern system of civ
ilization if properly directed. He is
also interested in international civic
clubs. Sunday schools are another of
his hobbies, one of his first steps since
assuming his new duties having been to
strengthen the Sunday School organiza
tions in his new field.

WILD ANIMAL PICTURE, CASTLE
Risking their lives at every turn, brav
ing death by ferocious beasts which had
never before set eyes upon human beings,
Mr. and Mrs. Martin Johnson, celebrated
explorers and naturalists penetrated the
heart of the African wilderness and for
two years photographed at close range
wild animals in their natural state.
While one turned the camera on a leo
pard, raging in fury because his lair had
been discovered, the other held him at bay
with a carefully-aimed rifle. Yet even
then there was no safety from the other
beasts of tha forests which might—and
did—steal stealthily down behind them,
ready to fight desperately man’s unwel
come transgression into their domain.
In the bewildering photoplay, “Trailing
African Wild Animals,” at the Castle
today and Wednesday, you will see these
fearless beasts of nature as they exist
on the plains and in the jungles of the
dark African continent.

STUDENT BODY CONTROL
OF LEMMY ADVOCATED
Professor Thacher Believes Oregon
Comic Magazine Has Passed
“The principal reason I am interest
ed in the Lemon Punch,” says Professor
W. F. G. Thacher of the journalism de
partment, “ is that it has been a spon
taneous undirected student body enter
prise and as such ought to be recog
nized and encouraged.”
Professor Thacher believes that a
magazine such as Lemon Punch should |
not exist very long in connection with
such an institution as the University
of Oregon unless controlled by the stu
dent body, and it is his opinion that
the magazine ha# gone through its
period of probation and has justified its
existence and that, therefore, the stu
dent body should lend its name to it
and give it a place on the campus
along with the Emerald and the Ore
Professor Thacher thinks that the
contents of the Lemon Punch can be
improved upon and he says, “My idea
is that editorially the Punch, without
any preconceived ideas or without imi
tation should attempt to make iteelf
a distinctive and original medium of
student expression, in which there is
not only humor, but comment, criti
cism and satire.”
No fear need be felt about finances
in connection with the magazine, ac
cording to Professor Thacher, who
thinks it would not only
make its own way but would give a
reasonable profit to the student body
at the end of the year.
