    The Sunday Emerald
Behind the Mask
Library Material
W. R. H.
_By C. N. H._
An “investigation” has been
made by a student administration
committee in the matter of student
control of the Co-op.
Grounds of progress are gained
slowly and never through a sudden
upheaval of any sort.
That all students shall be mem
bers of the store and that the offi
cers be elected at the regular elec
tions yearly—these are constructive
suggestions offered by the com
It remains for the students to
see that these suggestions . are
If the student body fails to keep
these suggestions in the forefront
of its mind, they are liable to “fall
through” and the investigation will
have failed of its purpose. If the
investigation fails to bear fruit, the
old cry will be raised on the campus
that “interested parties blocked
the way.” National politics and
.student politics are much alike.
Let’s not have this opportunity for
gain slip by unheeded!
Colonel Leader was attacked the
other day through the columns of
the Emerald. The “old boy” of the
University’s affection was accused
of “keeping notes” on an Indian
in our midst. The colonel was de
fied indeed! The students had not
known that among them, hiding
behind the jovial mask of the well
liked colonel, there was such a
Romantic and exciting figure. Bah
jove!—A blood-drippyug pirate, a
spy of Britain’s tyranny accused
Soviet Russia of trying to stir the
Indians to revolt with its ill-gotten
gold. .So for one wild dream of
Russia stirring discontent in India,
the Indian representatives present
a better, one of villianous English
spies hiding behind jovial English
“Colonels” in America. Not bad!
Not bad! That is better fiction
reading than some of the questions
which usually occupy the communi
cation columns of the Emerald. We
Americans are supposed to be en
dowed with some common-sense!
May we suggest that in some |
eases, with, of course, the lecturer’s
permission, the University would do
well to take down stenographic re
ports of especially able lectures on
certain subjects. These typewritten
and bound, pamphlet-wise, between
cardboard covers would make a
valuable addition to the University

With amusement we see that in
the military department the rifle
team is competing in a national
contest for a prize offered by Wil

A University student met a small
Taoy of the neighborhood the other
■day, who announced that he was
nine years old and in the sixth
grade and that he was going to try
to win the Rhodes Scholarship
when he was a University student.
The school of architecture is
noted on the campus for its good,
chummy student spirit. In the
■“old days” they used to adjourn
themselves from the drafting room
to play horseshoes for a while by
the fence next to the railroad track.
’Twas good recreation! They’ve put
a road in there now, but can’t the
architects find some other place to
continue the sport? It is a pity
to discontinue such a good tradi
Seniors seem to have two strange
customs or traditions. One of them
is to grow sentimental about the
dear old University, soon to be
their Alma Mater, and the other is
to crab unmercifully certain pro
fessors. They say they’re disillu
sioned, and that so-and-so isn’t the
fine professor, nor even man, that
they thought him to be, and so
forth into eternity. Yet this man
is often the one they praise most
in after life. Can’t they forget it,
as the popular saying goes!
Are Super-I ntellectuals
Superior Beings?
By L. L. J.
Have you noticed our new-born
group of super-intellectuals? At
times they do cause one a great
deal of embarrassment, for it is
really very disagreeable to have
ones “complexes” plainly discussed
in public when they had previously
been intimate details of private life
known only to the family physician.
Being analysed openly and com
pletely by every passing individual
is getting to be more than a fad; its
becoming an outrage. Hearing peo
ple discuss your character in this
manner: “Oh, yes, he has an over
developed superiority complex, he’s
a materialistic egoist and I consider
him a moron because his cerebrum
simply doesn’t function.” Not
knowing what all of these words
mean one is at loss whether to at
tempt to display a modest denial
or an outburst of righteous indigna
Our semi-intellectuals, thesfi in
dividuals that feign a bored and
indifferent attitude to everything
that was held sacred by the Puritan
Fathers and the Daughters of the
American Revolution; the in
dependent order of subjective, ob
jective, free and original thinkers,
simply cramp our style. We no
longer feel free to talk in the tefms
that we understand, we hate to ex
press ourselves on ordinary “back
to the farm” subjects. In fact,
we even refrain from sneezing in
public for fear it may start another
of those “complex” rumors about
Perhaps it is an old-fashioned in
stinct dating back to some genetic
att^Dutea of a dim and forgotten
ancestry, that causes us to be fright
ed^ by the bohemian inclination.
Somehow or another we shrink at
this self expression that allows lib
erty to discussion of all subjects
without so much as even a blush or
an explanation.
Can it possibly be true that these
self appointed intellectuals were
once just ordinary human beings
that breathed, laughed, talked, cried
and ate onions with the masses?
Did they once love to chew gum,
see slap stick comedies, read books
that had never been surpressed and
enjoy plays that were not saturated
with the sex element?
To be an intellectual you must
suddenly, and without warning, be

Junior Jazz
Jinx Planned
Etiquette Outline for
Affair Created
Plans for the Junior Jazz Jinx,
to be given in the Campa Shoppe
next Friday evening, are rapidly
nearing completion. Names for the
lottery, list, printed in this issue of
the Emerald, were drawn Saturday
morning by the committee, which
consists of the following: Don
Park, chairman; Margaret Morri
son, Lillian Baker, Marie Myers,
Hal Lundberg, Don Woodworth.
Due to the fact that there are
more women in the class than men,
women whose names do not appear
in the list, and men who are not
able to get dates with their part
ners, are asked to make their dif
ficulties known at a late bureau,
which will be open from one until
five on Thursday' afternoon, in the
Journalism building.
The .men are expected to bring
their partners to the dance and see
that they get home, but they will
not be required to attend them dur
ing the evening.
Rough clothes are to be the or
der of dress for the evening, one
prize to be awarded the couple
wearing the most original costumes,
and one to the couple coming to
the dance in the most unusual con
A twenty-five cent admission will
be charged at the door, for which
the couple will be given two
tickets. These are to be traded in
for pop and pink pop-corn, which
the committee promises will be
there in abundance, and which will
also be sold later in the evening.
The patrons and patronesses .for
the affair are: Prof. George Turn
bull, Mr. and Mrs. Boland Miller,
Mr. and Mrs. Walter Nichols, Mr.
and Mrs. Walter Snyder.
University of Wisconsin—“Quit
diving for pennies,” is the instruc
tion given by the coach at the Uni
versity of Wisconsin. He wants to
take no chances of possible charges
of professionalism. “Diving for
pennies is using your swimming
knowledge for financial gain,” he
cautioned. Gerber, star Wisconsin
tackle, was kept out of the Illinois
game because of Illinois’ protest
that he was a professional because
he gave swimming lessons at the
Y. M. C. A. during the summer.
Yale University—Yale university
according to an alumni directory
recently issued, has ” 21,000 living
graduates. Among the large cities
j listed is Kansas City, with 200
graduates. More than 1,000 former
students live in foreign countries.
: Asia claims 375 of these.
Handball Setj
for Tuesday
Nineteen Teams Enter
Tournament Games
The doughnut handball tourna
ment is scheduled to get under way
next Tuesday, and from then on
two games a day will be played
until the first round of the tourna
ment is over, sometime near Febru
ary 7. I
Nineteen teams have entered the
tournament and they have been
divided into four leagues. A round
robin will be played in each league
to determine the winners. The two
highest teams in each league will
go into the second round, where
straight elimination will weed them
out until the final games, which
will determine the ratings. The
two or three lowest teams in each
league will go into another league
,and play straight elimination. All
teams will be listed on a percentage
basis. Thus the handling of the
tournament will be practically the
same as that of the basketball
tournament, except that the final
leagues will play straight elimina
tion games for the championship.
In order to get the tournament
run off as quickly as possible Henry
“Hank” Foster has arranged that
no games be postponed. Absolute
forfeiture will be the result of
games not played on or before the
set date. The date each game is
to be played will be posted in the
men’s gymnasium. Foster urges
that men arrange to play off the

Oregon Takes
Bearcat Game
by 47-13 Score
Checking by Varsity
Defense Allows But
Four Goals
Short Passes Used
Oregon skimmed safely over the
second of her conference barriers
by a greater margin than the first
one last night, and the Willamette
Bearcats fell before the Lemon
Yellow onslaught to the tune of
47 to 13. Oregon’s defense was
working with more of a precision
than in the previous engagements
and although the Bearcats looked
like a better aggregation than
Pacific, the locals were able to run
up a slightly larger score. The dif
ference, however, can readily be
laid to better quality of shooting
from the foul line.
Hunk Latham showed symptoms
of returning to his old form last
night and was high point man of
the tangle, with 18 counters. Logan
was the guy with the brass buttons
in the Bearcat offense and he rung
the bell thrice for six points.
Shafer Converts Five
If we were to pick a star in last
night’s contest, however, we would
pass the palm to Earl Shafer. Be
sides converting five out of eight
tries from the foul line, the little
fellow slipped the leather through
the hoop four times from the field.
Then again, Shafer was no small
part of the highly successful five
man defense of the local squad.
Hobson slumped slightly under his
performance against the Badgers.
The Oregon defense was pene
trated for four field goals in the
first half, but in the last period
the visitors had to be satisfied with
four points via the foul route. Last
night’s game was divided into four
eight-minute quarters.
Gowans opened the scoring by
dropping one in from the foul line
and baskets by Latham and Shafer
soon ran the count to seven be
fore the visitors scored. About
this time, however, Logan got an
acute attack of the basket shooting
fever and in less than a minute
he heaved the sphere through the
hoop three times, making the count
seven to six. This was as close
as the Bearcats ever got, however,
as the Lemon-Yellow combination
got to work and at the end of the
first eight minute period the score
stopd 13 to 6 in Oregon’s favor.
Reinhart’s team kept the Salem
lads on the defensive throughout
the remainder of the first half and
at half time were leading 23 to 8.
Second Half Fast
Tlie varsity in the second half
ran their final count to 47, while
Willamette did not make a single
field basket. Both coaches sent in
a host of subs during the latter
minutes of the game. Stoddard

Dent Mowrey—a Musician
Education, Genius, Fame
By Josephine Bice
The Dent Mowrey recital tomorrow
night will offer an unusual oppor
tunity to students and townspeople
to hear one of the most prominent
of the younger musicians of today.
'Dent Mowrey is an artist with the
firm foundation of a thorough musi
cal education; his excellence of mu
sicianship is due, not only to his na
tive genius, but also to years of ear
nest and assidous labor.
Mr. Mowrey has had the advantage
of European training and contact
i with the best in the Europaen musi
cal world. He attended the Royal
Conservatory at Leipzig and gradu
ated with honors. From there he
went to Paris to study with Harold
, Bauer, one of the foremost of mod
I ern musicians. Harold Bauer recent
. ly toured the United 8tates, and ap
j peared in Portland with the Port
j land Symphony orchestra, and was re
; ceived most enthusiastically there, as
j elsewhere. Mr. Mowrey’s talent won
| cordial recognition in Europe, -an
honor not attained by many Amer
ican students. He played at musi
cales and did extensive concert work,
playing mostly his own compositions.
Since his return to America, he has
been one of the leading figures in
musical circles in San Francisco,
Portland, and Seattle.
The first part of his program con
sists of five selections from the
“Classic” masters, Beethoven, Mug
gilini-Liszt, Schubert, and Brahms.
Those who know Schubert are look
ing forward eagerly to the Rosa
mundo Ballet Music. The brilliant
Soiree Musicale, by Mugglilini-Liszt,
and the Waltzes of Brahms cameo
like in their perfection, will furnish
a rare treat for the listeners.
His second group will be interpre
tations of the most outstanding of
modern composers. A comment on
Chopin could be called superfluous,
as there are few who do not know
and love Chopin. Mr. Mowrey will

section of the conference and the
student body officers section passed
resolutions favoring the conference
as a benefit to high schools and ex
pressing aims decided upon by
the delegates.
Papers to Contribute
The High School Press associa
tion passed the following resolu
tion: “In order that this organiza
tion be more closely united, we ask
I that the various papers and maga
I zines of the said organization, ex
change or lend cuts, and exchange
news.” Appreciation was expressed
to the University and the various
organizations for the hospitality
and help that had been received
and to those connected with the
conference for their help.
Th association of student body of
ficers went on record as saying that
the sessions of the organization
were of definite value to the schools
represented and requested that
these conferences be continued from
year to year, urging more high
schools to participate. To those
who had helped with the conference
appreciation was expressed.
Student Body Favored
Resolutions favoring certain ac
tion for all high schools were
passed. These were: “We go on
record as favoring a well organized
student body in each high school,
which shall control the general
activities of the school, such as
athletics and debates. We believe
an effective organization should in
clude the following features: (1) ▲
student council, which shall include
,a faculty representative, and which
shall bo the executive body of the
association; (2) a paid membership
with a fee sufficiently large to
justify admission of members into
the various contests and other
activities that are directly under
the control and direction of the
student body; (3) a carefully work
ed out budget system for handling
the finances of the organization.”
“Believing that debating is one
of the most profitable activities in
which students engage, we favor
full recognition and support of this
activity by the student body as
