HERE’S TO THE OO-ED!
SEPTEMBER 23, '23— Newly arrived
at this place of higher education .Mar,
the lord please tell me why they call it
“higher” for from the tales spread
among my girl friends at home ’tis any
thing but elevating.
SEPTEMBER 24, 1923— Invited tc
to the K. P. G. house for luncheon to
day, and was so flustered that I ran of1
without my handkerchief. ' I did not
need it, for I had not a cold, yet it was
such a pretty morsel of lace and silk
that it would arouse the envy of ang
girl for its possession.
To tea at the G. D. E. house—goofs.
To dinner then at the T. A. K. house,
although they do call it “supper.”
They seem to pride themselves on being
a bit conservative and old-fashioned in
some things, whereby they surely put
themselves in a lone class among the
■modern girls. Eowever they are all good
SEPTEMBER 28, 1923—Have been
the rounds and am a-weary. Pledged
■finally O. C. Me and wrote papa for
more money. Heaven help me, but ’tis
pleasant to be settled as to my head
quarters. .Now for some good dates dur
ing the rest of the college year,“Pig
gin” they call it here.
HO! HO! HA! HA! HE! HE!
We were talking to a faculty mem
ber the other day about the co-eds
and she said that the men of the Uni
versity should have the moral stamina
to refrain from excessive dating, es
pecially on week-ends. So why blame
the women? The women would not
disturb the men if the men did not
ask them for dates.
The talk centered about religion the
other night and the founder of Chris
tianity was mentioned. “Oh, yes” said
one of the co-eds, “that was Paul.”
WOMEN— THE CAMPUS FORUM
AND AGAINST THEM
1. “Select five hundred Women,
brainy women to enter the Uni
versity. Looks don’t count.”
2 “Mix women and men pell-mell.
The more the better.”
3. “One sex without the other creates
4. “I’ve no enthusiasm for the term
co-ed. It’s antiquated.”

IN OUR MAIL BOX
Dear C. N. H.:—
Seeing as how your colyum has been
conducted more or less minus aim or
reason, I thought perhaps you might
•want to have something of an editorial
nature in your line-up. I could easily
"have addressed this “to the editor,”
but I know that this bit of space is the
cynosure of all eyes—and I want my
latest discovery known. Here it is:
College athletics and our new system
of prison reform tends to make crimin
als out of our innocent college students!
Think,—think hard, I pray you, of the
famous college athlete who is tempted
to steal. Would the spectre of prison
"bars horrify in the least? No sir!
Any prison from the trusties to the in
mates of the death-cell would be tickled
.stiff to have him as one of their num
ber. Imagine how it would increase
-their prestige. Why they would be
winning all the baseball and football
.games in the country. The prisoners
would try and prevail upon the judges
to sentence the athlete for life, so they
■could keep him on their team. In in
ter-prison games they would all flaunt
their ex-collegiate champions. Even
now the compeition between penal in
stitutions is becoming heated,—and just
think what it might be if they are able
to dra wa few more from Washington 1
No sir, C. N. H.—do away with modern
prison reform, or college athletics. The
two together are too much of a tempta
tion. Yours for life, A. T.

COUPLE OF ’23 CLASS WED
At the Pi Beta Phi sorority yesterday
^afternoon, Miss Delight Hope Virde
nius, ’23, became the wife of Edward
Kolar, ’23. An unusual feature of the
wedding was the fact that Mrs. Kolar s
grandmother, who is over 80 years of
age and an ordained minister, per
formed the ceremony. This is the second
one of her grandchildren whom she has
married. Mrs. Kolar is a member of
Pi Beta Phi.

Ernst Proves Devotee
of Classics and Sports
By Margaret Morrison
A man who possesses- “that inward
eye, which is the bliss of solitude,”
who, in the words of his wife, “would
rather read Homer than go to a foot
ball game,” but who, nevertheless
is an expert golf player, an accom
plished tennis player, and prefers
I mountain climbing to any other form
of outdoor sport—such a man is Ru
dolph Ernst, instructor in the English
department, a newcomer on the campus
and formerly on the faculty of the
University of Washington.
In his classes, Professor Ernst is said
to be so interested in his subjects that
he makes literature a living, breathing
thing and his students become so en
thusiastic thait there is an audible
sign of regret heard about the room
when the closing bell rings. As for
the man himself—“I thought I had
fifty minutes to talk,” he will sigh,
“and I no more than get started when
the bell rings.”
“What are your impressions of Ore
gon students as compared with those
of the University of Washington,” was
the question asked of him/
“That is rather difficult to answer,”
he smiled, “One might say that Oregon
has not that pioneer spirit which one
senses on the Washington campus. The
rough edges have worn off and left
a more polished student at Oregon.
“And because of their great individ
uality,” he continued, “you do not find
that loyalty to their college that yqu
have here. Perhaps that is due some
what to the institution being so much
larger, but there is something else.
There is no family feeling; and while
the average Oregon stndent meets you
half way when you try to talk with
him, the Washingtonian is ready to
doubt you and propound some theories
of his own.”
His chief avocations are walking, and
climbing. “I have climbed every
mountain in Washington which rises
above 10,000 feet,” he says, “and I
hope to find some one who is interested
in the sport so we can climb the Three
Sisters some time this term.” Not only
has he done a great deal of climbing
here but during, a stay of two years in
France he spent much of his time at the
He is an- enthusiastic gold player and
while he modestly states that he isn’t
particularly good at it, those who have
been out with him say that he is an
exceptionally fine player.
In fact, Rudolph Ernst is an all
round man. He is making his place in
the hearts of the students as a fair
and square instructor and a beloved

WITH EMERALD STAFF
Appreciation of People Helps

fanned with the Emerald copyreaders
and members of the copyreading lab
section around the desk Friday morn
Fred struck the old-timers around the
desk as about the best mixer since
John Barrett was on the campus two
“You know,” he said, “I believe
that, if you have the right kind of
appreciation of people and sympathy
with them, you have a sort of sixth
sense for the kind of story any of
them is likely to have. ”
Before long the readers of the Journ
al are going to read an interview with
a veteran of the Orofino mining dis
trict. Mr. Loekley met him on the
street the other day. Neither had laid
eyes on the other before. The “sixth
sense” gave the Journal man an in
spiration. He hailed the old-timer. “Do
you know what I’d like to have you
do for me?” he asked in that manner
which usually brings results.
“I want you to tell me about your
experiences in the old days of the
Orofino mining district.”
“Oh, that was sixty years ago,” came
the reply, almost apologetic for having
nothing more recent to disclose.
Loekley has an idea that there’s a
news story in everybody, and he rather
prides himself on being able to get
it. Even around the campus several
notable examples of his skill in this
regard are known.
While on the campus Mjr. Loekley,
who makes periodical visits to Eu
gene in search of material for his
column in the Journal, met most of
the faculty, it seemed, and as many
as possible of the students.
Preliminary arrangements were made
yesterday for his initiation into Sigma
Delta Chi, professional journalism fra
ternity, on the occasion of his next
visit, at Homecoming time. Mr. Lock
ley was elected to membership more
than a year ago.

duplicated in many redent books) that

STRAIN TO A TIE
R. H. Thomton Receives
Honor in Portland
In recognition of his scholarly at
tainments and his service from 1884
to 1903 as dean of the school of law,
the University of Oregon will eonfer
upon Bichard Hi. Thornton the de
gree of doctor of laws in Portland next
Saturday noon. The ceremony will take
place at a gathering of members of the
state bench and bar in the Portland
Judge Bobert S. Bean of the federal
district court, who was a member of the
board of regents when the school of
law was founded; Jtidge James W.
Hamilton of Boseburg, president of the
board of regents; Judge Earl C. Bro
naugh, a graduate of the 1890 law
class; William G. Hale, dean of the
school, and President P. L. Campbell
of the University will deliver addresses.
Following the conferring of the degree
and the investment of the former dean
in the doctor’s gown, the honor guest
Lawrence A. McNary, school of law,
’90, a practicing attorney of Portland,
will preside as toastmaster.
Law Alumni invited
The entire bench and ljar of Oregon
and all University law school alumni
have been invited. Both Judge Fred
W. Wilson of The Dalles, president,
and Albert B. Bidgway of Portland,
secretary of the state bar association,
will be among the number of jurists
and lawyers who will be present
A committee of law school alumni is
in charge of the ceremony honoring
former Dean Thornton. The committee
follows: Mr. McNary, Arthur L. Veazie,
law school, ’93; Judge Bronaugh, form
erly on the Multnomah county bench;
Bussell E. Sewell, ’92, a Portland at
torney; J. F. Booth, ’88, and Judge
J. P. Kavanaugh, ’93, formerly on the

distinguished member of the federal
bench an^ chairman of the University
board of regent^, invited the Pennsyl

until 1915 when it was tranferred 'to
the Eugene campus.

dertook research in the British museum.
He returned to Portland in 1916 to
make his home there permanently.
Since its foundation between 600 and
700 students have been graduated from

Vandal’s Team Fails
to Break Famed Jinx
in Crucial Struggle
Sax Makes Most Yardage of Backs on Either Side;
Fitzke and Stivers Are Strong Cogs in
By Ken Cooper
Oregon’s unbroken string of victories over Idaho still remains
unbroken and we must add another tie game to the list of Oregon
Idaho scores. The scoreboard says that Idaho is as good as Oregon,
but if we are to believe the figures, Oregon had the edge in yester
day’s tussle. Shy’s men completely outshone the Vandals in the
passing end of the game, completing 11 out of 16 attempts.
It would be hard to pick an individ
ual star out of the Oregon backfield,
although Sax made the most yardage
of any of the backs of either team.
He made 51 yards from scrimmage.
Fitzke and Stivers were the strong
cogs in the Idaho machine. Little Skip
Stivers featured the latter part of the
contest with long end runs which
brought the stands to their feet. Fitzke
was taken out of the contest in the
third quarter after he had been knocked
senseless, although the big fellow was
still on his feet.
Game Play by Play
Following is the report of the game
play by play:
Idaho takes the field at 2:20 and is
followed five minutes later by Oregon.
Oregon elects to kick and Chapman
kicks off, driving the ball over goal
line. The ball is brought out to Idaho
20 yard line and play is resumed.
Fitzke tears off -8 yards through left
and fumbles but recovers. Fitzke two
yards for first down. Fitzke five

Women’s Opinions Varied
Concerning Opposite Sex
By a Co-ed
Would the masculine sex be so serene
were they aware of the opinion of
some of the women of the campus con
cerning their mighty selvesf A mere
phrase ‘syncopated idiots’ (It’s good
isn’t itt) applied to one class of the
superior sex might startle them into
realizing that their antics are not so
clever as they would think.
But this is only one classification
that the curious reporter secured from
a popular senior. Syncopated idiots,
insignificant nonentities, promising and
more promising were other types of
The query from an independent type
of women brought forth the expres
“While I don’t know so much about
men, I would say there is the type
who !s worthwhile and nobody know*
it because be is modest; the type who
is worthwhile and everybody knows it;
the type who is not worthwhile and no
body knows it, (he’s the bluffer); and
the type who is not worthwhile and
everybody knows it.”
Some who were questioned were wary
and refused to express their opinion,
some took refuge in the ‘I don’t know’
attitude. One or two of the more sop
histicated declared laconically ‘One
type—all men are alike.’
A more conservative view was given
in the estimation of men.
“There’s the grind. He gets the
ones and no fun. One can’t drag him
away from his studious sphere. He
excels in that one phase of life', but
is sadly deficient in others.

the good sport and the athletic type.
