Make the Invitation Sincere
Mothers’ Day has been getting too little attention in the past few
years. It is one of the University’s most appropriate and most thought
ful customs, and it could be really successful if more students would
make an effort to make the invitations genuine. The date has been
set for May 13 this year and there is still time to see that every moth
er knows that a real welcome will be extended.
There are hundreds of reasons why mothers should visit the cam
pus, and it is more pleasant to have them visit at a time when they
can be honored as a group. A program for the week-end has been
arranged. If students will express a sincere invitation, several hun
dred mothers will no doubt feel a desire to visit the campus.
Oregon Watches with Interest
0. A. C. ’s experiment with the honor system will be watched with
interest by the Oregon student body. Every college and university
must work out the solutions to their own problems, and it may be
but a matter of time until it will seem advisable for Oregon to look
into the matter. The University is not without problems of discipline.
Perhaps the honor system would be the solution, and perhaps not.
However, conditions have not forced the issue. The system’s trial
at 0. A. C. will be watched with a somewhat selfish motive. It will
be a matter for future college generations at Oregon to decide.
Those Four Amendments
For those who failed to attend the student body meeting Thursday
morning, four amendments to the student constitution and by-laws
have been proposed. They are briefly:
1. Making the Lemon Punch an official student publication.
2. Granting minor sport letters to varsity swimmers.
3. Awarding sweaters to members of the University band.
4. Authorizing the incorporation of the Associated Students.
The full context of these amendments will be published in the
Emerald before election Wednesday, but in the meantime every stu
dent should talk to the people concerned and form a definite opinion.
It is unfair to the student body to vote unintelligently. Organiza
tions concerned would do well to let the students know their de
It sometimes takes a production like the Varsity Vanities to
bring realization that the man who “sleeps next to us’’ in class is
really a genius.
Green lawns—fir trees—twilight—the only element lacking is
singing. Those concerts held last spring on the steps of Met line
hall were great.
The Emerald takes this opportunity to thank its friends for the
kind words of commendation expressed at the A arsity \ unities.
PRIZE OF $10 GOES TO
BEST PUBLIC SPEAKER
Contest in Extemporaneous Address
Will Be Held in Juno; Award From
Jewett Gift Fund
An award of $10 is to be given to
the winner in the extemporaneous
speaking contest to be held during the
first week in June, according to an
nouncement by instructors in the pub
lic speaking department. The money is
a part of the $50 gift made to the Uni
versity during the winter term by Mrs.
Wilson Jewett; a prize of $40 of tho
same gift having been given to the
winner of the Northwest oratorical try
outs held last week. Mrs. Jewett gave
the money with the hope that it would
be used to arouse interest among Uni
versity students in public speaking.
The extemporaneous speaking contest
is limited to those who are enrolled
in the extemporaneous speaking classes.
Those students who plan on entering
the eveut are asked to see Prof. C. 1).

winter term in which Leith Abbott won

is the first at which a money prize has

RIGHTS OF THE CHILD
TOLD IN RADIO IECTURE
Privilege of Play Banished,
i # Says Dr. Parsons
Betterment of the social, physical
| and mental conditions of the child was
stressed last night by Dr. P. A. Par
! sons, director of the Portland school
of social work of the University of Ore
gon, in a radio lecture which was re
ceived at the Friendly hall receiving
station of Edward Bobbins. "The
Child’s Bill of Bights” was the title
of the address transmitted under the
direction of the extension division from
station KGW of the Portland Morning
“One of the chief rights of the child”
declared Dr. Parsons, “is the right to
a normal home. This is possible only
where there are responsible adults.
There should be more than one child
in the home.” Brothers and sisters are
necessary to make a happy and ideal
family is the opinion of Dr. Parsons.
The lecture was based upon the
“Seven Bills of Bights for the Child,”
as Dr. Parsons has outlined them. The
right of the child to be well born; the
right to live; the right of cnaracter;
the right of freedom from labor, and
the right to an education are five
measures in the “Bill of Bights” dis
cussed by the speaker.
“Because of the flowing into the
cities of the country population due
to industrial revolution the real right
of play for the child has been taken
away,” Dr. Parsons reminded the radio
fans. “Although there is some artifi
cial appartus provided in our public
play grounds, the available facilities
are very small,” declared the speaker.
The Oregon Parent-Teacher associa
tion has set aside the month of May
as a month of child protection. Earl
Kilpatrick, director of the extension
division, announced that a series of lec
tures on the protection of the child has
been arranged for during May and will
be broadcasted weekly under the di
ection of the University radio commit

To Dean Bovard Through the Courtesy
of the Emerald
1 have just finished reading a let
ter in the Emerald signed “student,”
intended to justify your position in the
commonly called “Bovard-Bohler” con
troversy. It accomplishes little because
it deals in generalities. It is obviously
clear that it was written not from any
conviction its author may have had
but only from a desire to have some
thing said concerning the “other side.”
Its purpose was probably honest is spite
of the veiled insinuation it made as to
information possessed by the adminis
tration that even Bohler would not care
to have circulated.
Your position is pivotol in several
respects. You are the head of a depart
ment and as such have a responsibility
that of necessity depends upon your
own honest convictions for its success
ful administration. It is conceded, I
think, that you have a general plan of
physical education for the entire stu
dent body that is supported even by the
strongest Bohler factor.
Indirectly you are the administrator
of student funds. Your recommenda
tion on the coach situation is practi
cally final. We have no control over
what you may do either with or for
our interests. You are in short occupy
ing a position which requires from you
the utmost good faith. Is it then un
reasonable that we should ask for a
statement of your side of the case?
'Is Bohler taking advantage of his
popularity to demand the unreasonable?
1 can’t believe that because his pop
ularity is the outgrowth of square deal
The charge against you is that you
have been influenced by petty jeal
ousy and that this is a personal quar
rel. I can’t believe this because men
who have risen to the position you now
hold do not so lightly abuse a confi
dence. Neither do they let strictly
personal likes and dislikes influence
Are you afraid that we would not un
derstand your position? Are you afraid
that our reason might be swayed by
our prejudice? I recall a situation four
years ago this Junior week-end when
200 frosh went into the millraee under
circumstances none too honorable. There
were some injuries. There were many
ex-service men among the frosh. There
existed many times as much malice and
prejudice in their minds as they lis
tened to what you had to say to them
as there exists now. We not only lis
tened to what you had to say but we
were influenced by the reason of it
and governed ourselves accordingly.
