Beginning the New Year
Christmas vacation 1923 is now history. The “scandal
sheet” told the story of the work accomplished during the fall
term or told it as well at least as any humanly devised mech
anism could. Grades, any way one looks at them, are a make
shift. Under the existing system they are all we have.
The amount of red tape the new system of registration is
avoiding has permitted students to get right into the swing of
things without mucli loss of time. Unless something unforeseen
arises the change is all for the best. Students who are in the
habit of wasting the first week are putting their shoulder to
the task of the new term.
Hundreds of freshmen who never went through a Univer
sity examination period are beginning to realize the shortcom
ings of their high school education. The high school system
of excusing high point students from final examinations is a
bad one, under our existing University system. Many of those
who were excused in high school paid for it in the recent exam
ination period. They were so unused to being examined that
their results suffered.
With the new year and the new term here let us take a
flying start. To keep up with each day’s scholastic schedule
is the secret of successful scholarship. The students who learn
this early in tlicir University career find themselves ahead
when the time comes to plan for graduation.
Fighting the Flu
“Remember, it doesn’t pay to fight the flu. Bed is the
place for sick students.’’
This is the salient point in the instructions which are being
sent out by campus health officials as a part of a worthy cam
paign to prevent the usual epidemic of coughs, colds and sub
sequent influenza, which seems to follow a vacation period.
Rather crowded living conditions on the campus, the present
state of the weather, and the tendency for students to continue
their class work no matter how poorly they feel, are reasons
why infections, contracted during the recent vacation days and
brought back to the campus, are likely to be spread.
Specific instructions from the health service, which may
well be followed, are :
1. Avoid people who have the “flu”.
2. Avoid people who cough and sneeze.
3. Treat a cold or sore throat in the early stages.
4. If you have flu, give up to it. Remember, it doesn’t
pay to fight flu.
5. Isolate yourself to protect others.
6. Dover nose and mouth to prevent exposing others.
The faculty can cooperate with the movement to keep influ
enza down by being lenient to those who are forced to miss class
work on account of illness. It students know that they will be
given help and encouragement in making up back work there i
will not be the tendency to continue class room activity at a
time when they should be in bed.
CASES FOR DISCIPLINE
BY FACULTY ARE FEW
Two Meetings af Student Advisory
Committee Concern Unfair
Conduct in Quizzes
There is one element of the
campus life this year which would
indicate that the world is not on
tirely on the way to ruin. 1‘root
of it rests in the fact that an al
most uieglignble amount of discipline
has been carriod on officially by tin
faculty since January 1, 1U23.
During the past year there have
been only four meetings of the stu
dent advisory committee of the
faculty. These meetings were called
to deal with cases which were not
of major importance. Two of them
vi ere called in the fall term to in
vestigate cases of students who were
found guilty of unfair conduct in
a quizz, and assessed a certain
penalty accordingly. No discipline
concerning the N.S.F. check ques
tion which caused so much disturb
ance on the campus a year ago was
found necessary last term.
This would seem to give the
optimists a Infest >aml discourage
the cynic who avows -that the-'col
lege year is yet young. It is ;
matter of conjecture us to whether
these facts have something to <lo
with the apparently tranquil state
of student temper and whether the
present generation has really taken
another step and is able to take
care otj itself to such an extent.
We wonder what I’ollyuuua would

Coach Widmer will start putting
his squad through stiff workouts so
that the men will be in condition
for the Aggie meet. O. A. C. has
only two lettermen back this year,
which means that the Corvallis lads
are somewhat weakened by the loss
of some of their veterans. Although
Widmer will not have lettermen to
work with, all of the men, with the
exception of one will be back from
last year’s squad.
In the workouts held before the

HALE FOR INCREASE

the subject of “Increased Require

the supreme court to change the
.present admission rules to the bar
so that two years of college work
will be required for entrance instead
of just high school work, as now is
the ease. Before the meeting ad-1
journed, a motion was passed to
indorse the action of the state bar:
association on the proposed measure.
Since Dean Hale actively started
to support the movement four years
ago, the subject of the increased
requirement has been given some at
tention, but this year is tne first
time the state bar association has
authorized an active campaign to
put the measure across.
The movement is said to be gain
ing ground rapidly. Buies for ad
mission to the bar are under control
of the supreme court. The plan is
at present to canvass the state and
then put the question before the
supreme court in the form of a re
quest. Present indications show
that the state bar association will
probably be able to succeed with
the proposal within the next year.
In case it does, Oregon will be the
third state to increase bar entrance ,
requirements, Kansas and Illinois [
being the only two at present. The
question is being given serious con
sideration in Canada.
Meetings to further the advance
of the movement will be held by the
state bar association in Oregon
City, Salem and Eugene at some
future date. Dean Hale has been
asked especially to lecture at these
meetings and to aid the association
in presenting the matter.
