A Matter of Cooperation
Few realize the grind of work that student officials are going
through these days to make the present University year of 1923-24 a
success. All of them from the president of the student body down
to the head of the smallest committee are working night and day to
perfect their organizations. There are appointments to be made,
plans to be laid, and all the while their scholastic endeavor must go
Students can contribute to the success of our student body and its
various activities by refraining from petty criticism concerning those
in power. Differences of opinion are bound to occur; but the man or
the woman who is honestly and sincerely concerned with the welfare
of Oregon will make criticisms to the officer at whom they are di
rected. A real service can be rendered the A. S. U. 0. if our campus
citizens will remember that they are a part of the organization, and
as sjuch it is their duty to take an active interest in its welfare.
The Emerald especially welcomes this type of interest. Campus
journalists are working long hours, often until three and four in the
morning, in order that the day’s news can be on your breakfast table
in the morning. Each year a group of new and untrained writers
are initiated into the work of publishing a campus daily, and as a
consequence, errors are bound to appear. |
The turning in of suggestions for the betterment of the paper,
and tips concerning news that may be covered by the staff are ways
in which you can help your paper. Contributions on subjects of in
terest to the campus are always welcome.
The Sunday Emerald offers a field for writers outside the school
of journalism. A number of articles have been received for its col
muns, without solicitation, from scribes who feel the urge to express
themselves and who do not take an interest in the work of actual
The Emerald is still conducting its tryouts for staff positions.
New writers are invited to join the ranks of those who aspire for a
place in the masthead.
We Want Him Back
A late news bulletin says that Dr. John Straub, our grand old
man, must go under the surgeon’s knife. The entire state is watch
ing with anxiety the outcome of the veteran Dean’s great adventure.
Oregonians are united in the prayer for the speedy recovery of the
man we love so well.
It is evident that faculty members need their annual reminder to
dismiss classes on time. When a student is held overtime, he usual,
ly has trouble explaining his tardiness to the instructor of his next
class. We have noticed that the instructors who deal the most harsh
ly with late comers are often the ones who fail to hear the dismissal
“THKEE WISE FOOLS” AT CASTLE
King Vidor bus gono bis own record
as an original and voritistie motion
picture director ono bettor through his
direction of his first Goldwvn photo
play, “Three Wise Fools,” from Aus
ton Strong's popular stage play whioh
was produced by John Golden and Win
chell Smith. It was shown for the
first time in Eugene at tho Castle
theatre yesterday anil proved itself one
of the most entertaining and artistic of
the season’s productions. It has the
reality in character and in situation,
the charm and the feeling for romanco
and atmosphere which Vidor gets into
all of his pictures. True, he had these
qualities to work with in the play, but
he has enhanced and developed them,
giving episodes and sequences which
the stage version had necessarily to
omit. The pictureplay is one to cher
ish; it will repay repeated visits. This
featuro will show again today and
LOVE AFFAIR AT REX
There is u charming international
love affair between a handsome
young enaigu and the pretty, dark eyed
daughter of a South American ambas
sador in “The Silent Command,” the
William Fox spectacular action drama
which will be shown at the Rex again
today and Wednesday. The officer is
played by Gordon McEdward, son of
J. Gordon Edwards, director of the pic
ture, and Dolores Mendizabal, the
charmer from the land of the barrod
window and the vigilant duenna, is
Impersonated by Betty Jewel, who has
just the languorous grace called for
by the part.
At the finish of the picture the lov
ers give a literal illustration of that
enviable condition known as “sitting
on top of tho world.”
Of special interest are the first
scenes of tho fire which swept Berke
| ley, California, but a few days past,
and which are also to be seen on this
‘ current Rex program.

To the Editor:
Gone the glory of Plato! Departed

Silenced for eternity the fame of Cae

The article in the Sunday Emerald by
Robert Lane was read with interest
by the writer. Just a few words in
reply to Mr. Lane’s arguments.
Notice, dear reader, his description of
the movie, “endless ‘thrills,’ endless
boredom.” Of the pool rooms he says,
“a stuffy place with a lot of cigar
smoke, a lot of dirt, a lot of idle talk.
Like movies, pool rooms are places of
last resort for me.”
He then closes the article by say
ing, “And what can be better than evei)
a movie show or a pool hall on a rainy,
What logic! “A place of last re
sort,” yet, “What could be better on
a rainy Sunday?”
Then again he says, “Idleness pro
duces more evil than activity a3 a
general thing.” What if it does. Does
it mean that one must be forced to
idleness because he cannot go to a
movie or a pool hall on Sunday?
And as to solving the Sunday prob
lem. The opening of the movies on
Sundays would increase that problem
instead of solving it. Mr. Lane, you
have six days in which to go to mov
ies. Why not give the people who are
trying to improve the morals of the city
a chance to do some constructive work,
unhindered by the influence of the
movie on Sunday?
It is your own fault, Mr. Lane, and
those of your class, if you cannot find
plenty to do on Sundays. Things that
will be better for the individual than
Sunday movies or Sunday pool. The
trouble is with the individual, not with
the town. Let’s keep Eugene free
from Sunday movies.

THE HELLO BOOK
To the Editor:
A story in a recent Emerald, refer
ring to this year’8 “Hello Book,” which
I understand was edited by the gradu
ate manager, Jack Benefiel, has come
to my attention.
The following quotation is taken
from the story referring to the book
of last year in compariosn with the one
published this year: “It is the same in
spirit and contains all necessary cam
pus information, but all propaganda is
Since the word, “propaganda,” is us
ually associated adversely in circles
of journalism, it might be well to men
tion that the “propaganda” in last
year’s handbook consists in part of
messages to the students from Presi

of women, Shy Huntington, football
coach, Bill Hayward, trainer; a list of
Eugene churches, a short history of
