Lane vs. Lemmy
The discussion of the Lemon Punch aroused by Robert F. Lane
in the Emerald of Sunday, and ensuing communications, brings two
conclusions: (1) Criticism of the Punch is not such a serious crime,
and (2) There is no excuse for bringing the Student Union into the
present discussion.
Lane’s criticism of the comic shduld not arouse its friends to antag
onism. It is generally realized that the magazine is far from perfect,
and it would be a narrow-minded person who would resent sugges
tions for improvement. Suggestions for changing the type of subject
matter are not unreasonable in view of the recent combination of the
Washington “Columns” with the Sundodger, its comic. At other
colleges it has been demonstrated that humorous magazines are more
successful if they devote a Rart of their space to literary and artis
tic productions.
Regardless of Mr. Lane’s contentions, the Emerald suggests that
the Lemon Punch give serious consideration to the problem which he
has brought to light. The Punch has, for the most part, been com
paratively free from the type of joke “appreciable only by male
students,” to which he refers. Its editors have put forth sincere
efforts to keep its humor of the better class. But after all there is
the consideration that there is a type of magazine, not devoted en
tirely to humor, which it might be better to exemplify. Perhaps
another branch of the field which has been developed by the Sunday
Emerald this year could be worked up by the comic’s staff.
Mr. Lane has erred, however, in raising the issue of a Student
Union. Whether or not the Lemon Punch contributed anything to
ward its erection by its last number, he has committed a tactical
blunder by bringing up two issues at once. If he wished to attack
the idea of Student Union he should have waited until he has fin
ished the present discussion. The Emerald disagrees emphatically
with Mr. Lane’s statement that, “For the present at least the Stu
dent Union is a wild dream and unnecessary.” The need of a Student
Union was never, and never will be greater than at present. And
with almost a dozen campus organizations behind it to the extent
of a thousand dollars each—it seems more than a wild dream.
No, Mr. Lane, if you had limited yourself to a constructive criti
cism of the Lemon, Punch the Emerald would have agreed with you.
It believes that there is room for improvement of the Punch. And
regardless of the effect of the Student Union number of the comic
there was at least the sincere purpose, the desire to help a move in
which the campus is interested. But it believes that there is much
gooil in the Punch, and it is not altogether a Lemon which the student
body has picked. The discussion which has been aroused will do
the Lemon Punch more good than harm.
Work for the Sheriff
Disturbers of the peace and molesters of property at the head of
the mill race are a menace, and everything possible should be done
to apprehend them. When the canoe is punctured with bullets and
set adrift on tho river it looks like the time for the sheriff to step
in. And in the meantime, students who use the race and the river for
canoeing should report all incidents which seem suspicious and
should he careful about leaving canoes unwatched for any length of
Letter to Miss Lillian Tingle Expresses
Bureau's Appreciation of Advice
Miss Lillian Tingle of tlie department
of household arts recently received a let
ter from the government forestry de
partment iu which is expressed the ap
preciation of the bureau of the members
of the cooking classes for the assistance
and advice given in the matter of food
problems. The classes in food economics
and food problems were asked by the
forestry service some time ago to give
suggestions on the use of supplies with
out increasing cost or weight; and sug
gestions were asked for menus, lists of
dishes ami combination dishes that could
be made from supplies at hand, and for .
ways in preparing these dishes.
The forestry service is to use these
suggestions in operating the cooking
camps of the bureau. It was,
.stated in the letter that further assist
ance and advice may be asked of the
food classes of the University.

To the editor:
It is a natural tendency in any con
troversy affecting others to turn to
personal qualifications as a means of
rebuttal. In the Lemon Punch dis
cussion it is not the deciduous quali
ties of “a certain Mr. Lane,” which
are being argued, but the acid content
of Lemon Punch. To permit personal
ities to unnecessarily becloud an ar
gument is unwarranted, and by inspir
ing in some hearts the fear of derisive
gossip is an unjust restriction on the
free exchange and expression of ideas.
So far from being antagonistic to Lem
on Punch, the article I wrote should
be of great service to that publication,
pointing out as it does, many obvious
faults, and indicating ways of better
ment. Anger and ridicule are not
methods of rejuvenation, and Lemon
Punch needs rejuvenation.
It is only after much consideration
that I write this. Whoever will dis
cuss the merits of the case, and argue
on the facts will be met fairly.
American Jewish Committee Presents
Volume by Dr. Joseph Bloch
‘‘Israel and die Volker,” is the title
of a book by Dr. Joseph S. Bloch, based
on researches into the Talmud and other
Jewish literature by Christian scholars,
that has been recently presented to the
University library by the American
Jewish committee, whose headquarters
are in New York, through its president,
Louis Marshall. The work is published
in German and is very recent, no Eng
lish translation having yet been made.
In a letter accompanying the gift
the president of the American Jewish
committee states that it is presented in
the belief “that those who des^e to
learn the truth from dispassionate
sources with regard to the many un
founded charges that have been made
against the Jews, would embrace the
opportunity to read this important lit
erary coat ribution. ”
Embryology and Heredity May be 'Jiven
in Summer Session by Dr. Yocom
In addition to many other courses
in science to be secured in the campus
session of the summer school this vein,
tentative arrangements have been made
to schedule Dr. Harry B. Yocom, of the
zoology department, to give a four
hour laboratory course in embryology
and a lecture course on heredity. These
courses are offered subject to a mini
mum enrollment of twelve in embyrol
Included in the science courses listed
in the catalog are four botany courses,
five in chemistry, five in physics and
four in psychology. In each of these

Automobile Victim Former House
Mother; Swanson not Held Respon
sible for Accident
No date has yet been set for the fun
eral of Mrs. June M. Page, who was
killed by an automobile on Saturday
night. However, it is known that only
the immediate family will be present.
Mrs. Marian Page Hamilton of Pros
ser,'Washington, daughter of Mrs. Mrs.
Page and Mrs. J. L. Creeks of Redding,
California arrived here late Monday
night. .
Mrs. Page, who was a former house
mother at the Delta Gamma and Alpha
Sigma houses, is an aunt of Edwin and
Donald Fraser of the Kappa Sigma
The car which caused the fatal acci
dent, was driven by G. W. Swanson of
West Springfield. He was attempting
to pass two other machines ahead of
him when he struck Mrs. Page, the im
pact hurling her to the pavement and
dragging her several feet. She was ren
dered unconscious by the blow and
never recovered.
Coroner Branstetter of Eugene, who
investigated the accident, decided that
Swanson was not responsible, since
Mrs. Page’s eyesight was very poor
and Swanson was driving at a moderate
rate of speed.
Distant States and Territories Write
Asking about Summer Courses
Thirty-five states in the Union, as
well as Alaska, Hawaii, Alberta and
British Columbia, are represented in
the inquiries received by the extension
division in regard to courses in the
summer school sessions this year. Wash
ington lead3 in the list with a total -.f
‘.0 inquiries, nile California, Idaho
aud Montana follow in order, with New
York in fifth place.
New York, however, is not the only
eastern state interested. People from
Vermont to Geo-gia, and from Miss
issippi, Louisiana, Texas and Arizona
have written, asking for bulletins and
catalogs. There is also a wide range
of applicants, varying from college stu
dents, principals, and superintendents,
to nurses and social workers.
Already 159 persons who were stu
dents of the 1921 and 1922 summer ses
sions have signified their intention of
returning to the University this year.
Approximately half that number will
take work in Portland. A wide range
of interests are shown; seventy-six
have expressed a preference for work
in education, while forty intend to take
English, History, psychology, and so
ciology draw the largest numbers of

is at work cleaning up around the new
structures and the unsightly grounds
caused by construction work are rapid
ly taking on a new appearance.
The old wooden walk on the south side
of McClure hall has been torn up and
replaced by a graveled walk similar to
the one leading from the library to Deady.
The ground around the south side of the
new Journalism building has been partly
sodded and the part that was not sodded
has been smoothed down and seeded.
The ground around the new Art build
ing on the east side is spaded up and is
now being put in condition for a new
lawn. Sod is being laid on parts of this
ground. It will be necessary to make
several short walks at different points
around the two new buildings to replace
wooden planks which now serve that
purpose before the work is completed.
Dean Straub will leave this after
noon for Woodburn to deliver the com

class of Woodburn high school. His
subject will be “Why Take a Chance?’

Remember the parties of your high

the dining room for a glass of fruit punch
and a generous slice of home-made cake.
CJ The Campa and the Towne Shoppe are
places like the dining room of those days,
a meeting place for hungry students. The
cake we make has the same home-made
taste. Our fountain specials much better

How the Table Supply
Entertained the Preppers
“I’ve seen many a Junior Week-end, but
none so successful as this—from the stand
point of the house. It was the same old
stuff, baseball, tug-of-war and Prom—and
all of them thrilled the Preppers blue.
“But what was better, the thing that’ll
bring ’em back next year, was the way
our eats held up during the whole of the
rush. Never have I seen things run so
smoothly. The house made a rep for it
self among the guests.
“Cook is a wonder but she says that the
grocer is to blame for the way things
went. She says that she always gets 100
per cent co-operation from the Table
Supply, but that they are most reliable in
the time of a pinch.’’
