Every year the University administration receives a number of
complaints of depredations by University students. Some come from
simon-pure “soreheads”; but others, after investigation, prove to
have real basis. Flower gardens are raided, lawns are ruined, child
ren’s milk is stolen and nocturnal disturbances are created in resi
The worst feature of the situation is that many times the Univer
sity is blamed for these things when they were really done by non
students. The blame is placed at Oregon’s door because in time past
students have been known to do such things.
This leads to the conclusion that a single student, by committing
a thoughtless act, may cast undeserved odium upon the entire student
We have been on the campus long enough to know that college
pranks are played in the spirit of fun and never with malicious in
tent. Apparently harmless acts of college students have been known
to lead to arrests and subsequent embarrassment to the offenders
and the organization to which they have belonged.
The failure to understand the spirit of some of our activities is
regrettable and at times even stupid. Yet the misunderstanding does
exisit and it will be well to take it into consideration during the
Ten New Tennis Courts
When Campbell Church made possible for us to have ten splendid
new tennis courts he did a great thing for the A. S. U. 0. and the
University as a whole.
Only a small number of students can take part in major sports.
Even doughnut athletics, definitely designed to foster general sports
activity, provides exercise for only a relatively small per cent of
Oregon’s 2217 campus citizens.
Since the institution has grown beyond the small-college stage,
lack of proper tennis facilities has been deplorable. As a consequence
Oregon tennis teams have never had a fair chance in competition.
Long waits for courts discouraged practice and only those men who
had been stars in high school tried to keep up their game here. Many
players who might have developed at least to the place where they
would have given valuable competition to varsity players dropped
out because of poor facilities.
It is now possible to obtain a court at any time. Although tennis
has always been considered a spring activity, the keeper of the new
courts reports that several games are always in progress. Within a
very short time Oregon’s tennis chances should be “looking up.”
Campus organizations should begin thinking about the coming
doughnut tennis tournaments—for it is through the intramural pro
gram that players, especially for minor sports, are developed. Stu
dents not already interested in any sport are advised to consider
tennis. Every University man or woman should be interested in at
least some line of athletic activity.
Exchanges tell us that the president of Missouri University
is worried over the problem of student-owned automobiles, and the
fact that most students have too much money for their own good.
He suggests that parents restrict allowances to pampered offspring
to $75 a month. President Campbell will not have this worry—not
this year at least.
Our editor of the “One Year Ago Today” column tells us that it
was about this time last year that peon pants made their appearance
at the University high school. Since that time porch piffling and
“Yes, we have no—” have had their sway. What’s next!

Oct. 24.—California’s literary maga

the making two days ago when some
one broke into the printshop and at
tempted to destroy the copy and the
type. Who the person was or what
his motive, is not known.
The attempt was not discovered until
the following morning, but no real
damage had been done. The magazine
was ready for circulation at the time

THE GREEN GODDESS
To the Editor:—
With reference to my letter published
in your paper on the above subject
and my representation to Mr. Reddie,
in charge of the drama department,
allow me to thank him publicly for
the sympathetic stand he took on this
matter. As the play was almost ready
for the stage and as a considerable sum
was spent on the “georgeous scenery
of the Indian Raja (king) and his
court” the play had to go on, but Mr.
Reddie has promised to see that no
wrong impression about India is left
with the audience because of this play.
Those that will go to see the play will
be able to learn the pvcise method
he has decided to adopt about it. My
thanks are also due to all those taking
part for giving me an opportunity to
discuss the matter personally.
