On Scolding the Faculty
Dean Eebec in his account of observations made at Oxford uni
versity told the student body in assembly he believed the ancient
aristocratic domination at the historic institution was being vitiated
by an impetuous intrusion of the lower-class scholar. Oxford’s halls
were being fairly invaded by the sons of the laborers and the com
This description of the change taking place at the great univer
sity puts us in mind of an amusing incident regarding English edu
cation told by Charles D. Williams, bishop of Michigan, to an aud
ience at the Labor Temple in Portland during the Episcopal con
clave in that city in 1922. Bishop Williams sang a virtual panegyric
of the potency of the rising laborites in England. And most interest
ing was his story of the light in which a young college professor
was regarded by some hardy sons of the soil, the rising generation
of coal-miners’ sons.
It seems that these young men aspired to an education. An
agreement was made with authorities at Oxford whereby they would
be given lecture instruction by one of the pedagogues of that in
stitution. The teacher, when he arrived on the scene of his tasks,
was found to be quite a young and sophisticated don, who no doubt
had mastered his subject. But he was not of the “stuff” which
makes teachers of men, especially laboring men.
So disgusted were the laborites who suffered from the erudite
wanderings of their lecturer, that they handed him his return ticket
to Oxford and addressed an indignant letter to the university au
thorities explaining their action.
They said that they held the sophisticated young fellow only
very little to blame. They doubted not his earnestness. They be
lieved him inexperienced, young and innocent, to say nothing of
harmless. But they gave the authorities to understand that if they
were again subjected to the imposition of having to tolerate such
a pedantic and utterly nonsensical so-called teacher, they would
contrive to make the authorities regret their actions.
In other words, here was a case of the students laying down the
law to the professors. No nonsense was tolerated by these men
How would our faculty look upon such recalcitrant action on the
part of students. It is rather difficult to imagine anyone com
plaining to die administration that the head of the department of
ichthyology talks too loud and too much, or that they can’t stand
the conceit of the well-known professor of dietetics.
Though difficult to imagine, this is a somewhat piquant thought.
What happens across the sea may just as well happen here. The
faculty may take note, and would do better hereafter to take the
point of view of the student more into consideration.
Pants and Opinions
A college man should not be characterized or judged by the style
of pants he wears. Considerable quibbling concerning this form of
masculine garb has arisen on the campus of Stanford university. The
women have asked whether they prefer corduroys or golf knickers
as the uniform apparel of the man-student.
How can uniformity of garb be dictated 1 True, the shapely calf
of your modern Apollo is given added emphasis and show by the
clinging tendencies of the well-cut golf stocking. Bill Hayward
himself sponsors this apparel which once upon a time was deemed
nigh unto illegal and certainly unconventional for the college man.
But in these modern and uncertain times we have learned to expect
anything and to tolerate everything.
The puerile pant may even now seem ridiculous in the eyes of
some critics. But the odoriferous stench of the unwashed cordur
oy is likewise obnoxious to others. Some of ns favor neatness,
cleanliness and even dapperness, above all else in life. Others of us
believe that comfort is more conducive to study and fulfillment of
our mutual purpose. Whatever we may believe in this regard, we
must remember that on our campus, peopled with a conglomerate
mass, there is plenty of room for the most widely varied principles

It was with surprise and disappoint
ment that I noticed the announcement
from the president's office that classes
would be held on Monday next, Novem
ber 12. It had seemed to mo that the
executive head of this institution would
not hesitate to follow the example of the
president of the United States and the
governor »f the state of Oregon in set
ting aside this day in commemoration of
the World war, and in respect to mem
ory of that great sacrifice which is yet
vivid in the minds of some of ns.
The propriety and fitness of setting,
this day aside for the proper observ-;
ance of Armistice day seemed unques
tionably to have recommended itself to
our chief executives. Surely it is fitting
and proper that the state and nation
observe this day, the .event must be one
worthy of at least as much consider
ation and respect from our small group.
Is this a fair estimate of the con
viction and sincerity with which high
sounding words of patriotism were so
glibly and voluminously uttered but a
few short years ago? Is our gratitude
and appreciation worthy of no more
tangible or weighty evidence than idle,
pompous bombastry? If the cause it
self was worthy of the thousands of lives
which were so freely sacrificed, surely
the memory of that great sacrifice merits
one day from our not too busy lives.

“THREE AGES,” FEATURING
BUSTER KEATON AT CASJLE
There have been claims made as to
the biggest cast ever assembled for a
picture; the most gigantic set ever
built for a production; the largest num
ber of people ever gathered for one
scene. But it is left to Buster Keaton,
whose first six-reel Metro feature, com
edy-drama, “Three Ages,” starting at
the Castle today, to boast that he has
gathered the heaviest cast in the an
nals of the cinema.
“That’s some distinction, too,” says
Buster. “Just think of a cast weighing
more than a ton! Can you beat it-”
Wallace Beery, who plays a leading
role in “Three Ages,” weighs over 225
pounds. “Cupid” Morgan, 350 pounds,
to say nothing of the other members
of the cast. Buster Keaton, a mere
infant alongside of these physical
giants, weighs 125 pounds.
