^Wanted—A Square Deal
Once again the University men’s glee club has proved itself
worthy of the highest praise. Tuesday night it presented one
of the most pleasing programs ever heard on the campus to a
large and appreciative audience.
The concert demonstrated a number of things. First, the
inability of those in the rear of the gymnasium to hear, clearly
brings up the long-felt need of an adequate auditorium, where
assemblies of the entire student body could be held and where
popular attractions could be staged successfully.
Secondly, the fact that the largest crowd ever attending a
glee dug concert on this campus, heard Tuesday night’s offer
ing, proves the advisability of having the campus musical or
ganizations on the concert series. The increased interest in
musical work gained by the widespread appreciation of the
efforts of directors and their organizations is bound to be of
Finally, the splendid quality of the program brought out
the unfairness of position in which a great many of our non
athletic activities are placed. Student managers of these ac
tivities ordinarily are allowed to shift for themselves as far as
the scheduling of trips is concerned. Glee club men are often
“farmed out’’ during tours, while members of athletic teams
live at the best hotels.
Perhaps the fact that athletics are the greater revenue gain
ers does entitle athletic teams to more consideration; but the
fact remains that many other student activities are actually
allowed to suffer for want of the attention which is given in
Some of the best friends of the University have been gained
by the visits of our musical organizations to the various towns
throughout the state. They are able to visit parts of Oregon
where athletic teams could never go. Yet musical organizations
are never sure of a trip. If the student manager is a good one
and has good luck the campus musicians may receive a trip,
which is really a reward for the long hard periods of work they
give to creating programs. As far as getting much help or
encouragement here on the campus or even a due share of at
tention, apparently there simply isn’t time.
A thing worth doing at all is worth doing well. Noil-ath
letic activities deserve more attention. Perhaps the remedy is
an additional member on the graduate manager’s staff.
Cooperation with the Emerald
The Emerald has a large staff, larger than at any time in the
history of the publication. It is the aim of the Emerald to
cover the campus thoroughly every day and to serve the stu
dents in the best manner possible.
Despite the care taken to record all the campus news of
value, some may be overlooked. We are anxious to have all
of the news.
The Emerald is your paper. As a member of the A. S. U.
O. you are a part owner of the daily. Those who through dili
gence have earned a place on the staff are serving you. They
sacrifice their time in order that all of the students may have
a good newspaper.
Remembering that the Emerald is your paper as well as
the staff’s, we urge that you use your telephone and the cam
pus mail in informing the Emerald of possible stories. This
type of cooperation will make for a better student daily, and
such assistance will be received in the spirit in which it is
Mr. Fisher, superintendent of grounds and buildings, has
called our attention to the fact that the recent frost has made
the ground in and around the campus especially soft. He de
clares that this condition of th0 paths has caused students to
walk on the grass and that more damage has been done during
the last few days than he has ever seen in a correspondnig
The Oregon campus is one of the things which makes us
rightfully proud of our University. It is one of the most
beautiful campuses in the country. Great care is taken to
maintain this beauty, and students generally should cooperate
in the effort to keep it beautifuL

SCRUB PLAYERS MEET

“Scrap Iron” Toole is President;
Number of Social Affairs
Planned for Winter
Eighteen of the men who labored
to get the varsity players into trim
during the past fall, met recently
for the first time since the season
closed. This meeting was a revival
of the old L. N. P. club of last
year and was called for the pur
pose of fostering a spirit of good
fellowship among the scrubs as
well as to plan for a number of
social affairs this winter.
With the passing of Moe Sax
into the ranks of the varsity, sec
ond team quarterback, “Scrap
Iron” Toole was elected as presi
dent; and Ed Warren was elected
to take Joe Ellis’ place as secre
tary and general manager. Several
committees were appointed, Bert
Gooding and Ray Mosier, who
worked together as tackle and end
on the scrubs last fall have been
chosen to handle the social affairs
of the club. Bart Kendall and
George Hillis, two backfield aspir
ants of last year, were detailed to
arrange for the- financial end of
whatever good time is planned. Mc
Auliffe, McMullen and Mike Akers

the providing of any necessary re

Discussion Groups to Talk Over
Present Day Problems
All women's organizations which
have not as yet turned in names
of the faculty members whom they

These discussion groups are to be
held once a week for six weeks,

wants to hold the meeting. Each
organization is asked to turn in
three names, and a committee head
ed by Ruth Sensenich will select
one name for each group.
Topics to be taken up at the
meetings will deal with religious,

EIGHT PASS FRESHMAN
Percentage Lower Than in Fall
Term; Questions are Becoming
Eight out of thirty-five passed
the freshman English examination
held last week for the new students
entering the University. This is
about 17 per cent lower than the
number that passed the examination
given at the beginning of the fall
term. The same examination was
given this term.
A great deal of interest has re
cently been taken by teachers
throughout the state in the fresh
man examinations. The extension
division and the English depart
ment have been kept busy sending
out copies of them.
The English examinations given
to entering freshmen are becoming
more technical, according to the
English department of the Univer
sity. The department is question
ing the students on grammatical
points and in this way it is hoping
to encourage a more extensive
knowledge of grammar.
Y. M. WILL HAVE BOOTH
Pledges for Student Friendship
Fund May be Made today
The local Y. M. C. A. will open
a booth in front of the library today,
immediately after the assembly in
order that Qregon students may have
the opportunity of subscribing to
the Student Friendship Fund.
“Mr. Colton’s speech in the as
1 sembly today in which he will tell
of student conditions in Russia, will
be indirectly a plea for financial I
and moral support of this fund’”
paid Henry Karpenstein, president of
the Y. M. C. A. “We are opening
the booth directly after the assem
bly, and for the remainder of the
day, in order that University stu
dents may make voluntary subscrip
tions. The booth will be in charge
of Florence Buck, local secretary for
the fund, who will be assisted by the
Freshman commission of girls. Stu
dents may sign pledges for future
payment or they may pay at once."
