Stay with School
“I got my education in the school of experience and it set me
back at least ten years,” said Fred L. Boalt, colorful editor
of a Portland newspaper, who in a signed story in yesterday’s
Emerald urged delegates at the high school convention to con
tinue their education.
Here is a statement from a man who has made a success in
his line of work but not so big a success, he thinks, as he might
have made had he enjoyed the advantages of an education.
The alluring stories of “self-made men” have caused many
a misled youth to stray from the paths of education and in a
majority of eases the unfortunate one has only regrets over
lost opportunities.
History gives us a great many shining examples of self-made
men, but it never mentions the thousands who have failed be
cause of the lack of education. There are of course “educated
failures,” but statistics prove that one’s chances of success are
heightened immensely by the earning of a degree.
The advice to “stay with school” is especially appropriate
at this time when hundreds of high school people are here to
listen and to learn. University students should heed the words
of the man who has “been through the mill,” and when the
world offers what seems to be a golden opportunity, before the
proper time, the one who is tempted by that offer should think
twice, yes, thrice, before deciding against education.
The Emerald is always glad to aid any movement which will
make the University campus more of a cultural center. Dent
Mowrey, the gifted young pianist and composer, son of one
of our “University family,” is to play at the Woman’s building
tomorrow night. The organization which is making it possible
for music lovers to enjoy this rare treat is performing a real
service to the campus, and it deserves a reward commensurate
with its splendid effort.

Democracy Or Mobocracy?
* * * * * *
Mediocrity Ruling Tabooed
By Marion Lay
Someone has made a plea for
democracy. Since democracy must
be preacheu to us, then some among
us must have committed ir,o un
pardonable sin of being undemo
cratic. How? Someone has warned
us against snobbishness. That word
implies pretense, the assumption of
rjualii es not natvol to th: ;n
iixdivi.li al. This 's intolerable, ami
the snob is to be despised, of course.
But someone has gone' further than
this. It has been assumed that be
cause we are all young, and be
cause we are all healthy, we should
all be very congenial to one an
other. It is heresy for one to ex
ercise selection in the choice of
one’s friends, or to narrow one’s
plasurable contacts to a few peo
ple, who, absurdly enough, are in
terested in the same things as one
self. It should be remembered that
i there are thousands of unexplored
i personalities circulating unnoticed,
and because we cannot plumb the
I depths of all of these we are in
La way to miss the supreme happi
ness that could be ours.
The most flagrant violation of
real democracy is seen in the re
cent propaganda for the abandon
i ment of cars and furs for campus
! use. In this attempted supervision
! by the majority of dross and means
I of transportation, there is a hint of
other tyrannies. We can not say
we have a democratic spirit unless
the majority is willing to practice
the gentleman’s code of “Live and
let live.”
We are too tolerant, and even
submissive to mediocrity in all its
phases. We have the same dread
of people and things labeled
“superior” that we have of the
vivid skull and bones on druggists’
bottles. If someone is known to
have a family background of sev
eral illustrious generations, and
ancestors who have achieved more
than ordinary ancestors, he is er
roneously called a snob. At the
same time, the one who pronounces
this curse upon him will proudly
display to you the pedigree of his
own terrier, wondering if you fully
appreciate the importance of long
j pedigrees—in dogs. It is good
taste to show interest in the great
‘grandparents of one’s dog, but
! snobbish to appreciate the pedigree
,of an associate and contemporary.
Someone with a very high I. (,».
is at a distinct disadvantage in his
classes. He does not struggle for
I grades. He does not even struggle
for knowledge. It comes to him
with open arms. His mind is a fine,
j smooth running mechanism. It
| would be a delicious experience to
J watch it in operation, the effortless,
; refreshing tossing of ideas, so dif
I ferent from our own. But if he is
once caught in the crime of enjoy
ing independent thinking, and of
acquiring the gist of assignments
with no more effort than it cost
the professor to make them, his
lot will be a hard one. It is obvious
that to the plodders, belong the

for reservations
not be cultivated, because it makes
us evaluate things in the wrong
way. For instance, it demands that
we place commercial things low in
the scale and that even athletics
be given only a middle place. The
outcome of the practice of such an
,art, one can easily see, would be
more devastating than a nation
wide pestilence.
Because of our previous concept
of democracy we must object to
those who object to boorishness and
mental frippery. We must regard
with supercilious disdain all those
who because of any distinction are
accorded prestige or prerogative.
We must hold with the hare and
run with the hounds, because this
is the quintessence of mobocracy.
We must not be conversant with all
of life's interests, because ver
satility implies diffusion of effort,

Spanish Gypsy Dance created a
furore- in Paris, fed up as Paris is
with Spanish music of late years.
The Gargoyles of Notre Dame is a
fanciful piece, which Adolf Bohm,
the famous Bussian dancer has made
a part of his permanent repertoire.
Several distinguished out-of-town
visitors will be here to hear Mr.
Mowrev. Among them will be Presi
