Oregon Spirit and Courtesy
Complaints have come to the Emerald office and to the
offices of the University administration that some students are
not showing proper courtesy to older people who happen to be
on the campus. ,
The incident of the wife of a faculty member and her woman
visitor from a neighboring institution being crowded from a
campus sidewalk by a thoughtless couple and other stories of
visitors being crowded from the sidewalk by groups of students,
walking four or five abreast, remind us that not all of those
who are attending the University are yet truly Oregon students.
Courtesy is one of the first essentials of true campus citizen
ship, and such breaches as those mentioned above do not speak
well for the institution.
Perhaps a little more care in the mode of address to older
faculty members would be in good taste. A hilarious “hello”
shouted across the campus by a freshman to a dignified veteran
of the instruction staff is not wicked or even naughty, but it
is not exactly fitting.
The matter of the “hello” is also worth mentioning. The
practice now is to “say hello and say it first.” That means
that either the man or the woman may speak first. However,
it is a desirable mark of courtesy for the men to touch their
hats when even this democratic salutation is being given to a
■woman student.
A reminder about those smaller points of campus etiquette
is often all that is needed. Failure to comply with necessary
rules of courtesy should be treated as harshly as a breach of
campus tradition. The product of a University should never
fail in courtesy.
Lop-Sided Men?
“Seven thousand college men are locked up in prisons of
America. Twenty-four per cent of these educated criminals
are members of churches.”
The startling facts revealed above were discovered through
the means of an investigation conduct-oil recently by Johns
Hopkins university. They make one sit up and think. Are
our colleges turning out a fully educated man, a well
rounded man, or a lop sided one? What is being done in the'
average state school that is directly intended to further the
end of character building?
“These appalling figures show that education without char
acter is a destructive force,” comments a college professor.
“It is dangerous to equip human beings with instruments of
power without developing in them qualities of character that
will insure their right use. Character cannot bc> acquired sim
ply through tlu> study of books. It is a development growing
out of right human relationships.”
If the above option should be correct, is there not a danger
that We here at Oregon are not devoting enough time and
thought to those things that bear directly on character building?
I he Olympic Team
Oregon will be the host this spring to the Pacific Coast
Conference track field meet, which will be, in reality, the try
out to determine the coast representatives for the Olympic team.
This means that Oregon students will have an opportunity to
see some of the best athletes in the country compete.
A feature of the meet will be the open door policy of the
Conference. A star perfoymer in any line of track or field
event, no matter how small is the institution from which he
comes, will have an opportunity to compete. A victory would
probably mean a chance to compete in the Boston try-out.
With several outstanding track men in the University at
the present time, Oregon will probably be represented when
the American team sails for the Olympic games.
Professor Howe bemoans the fact that college graduates are
not possessed of much knowledge or understanding of civiliza
tion’s needs. We would like to see what would happen to the
“freshman in business” who announced to the world that he
could diagnose the world’s ills and could prescribe a sure cure.
To the Editor:
May we have a few inches of
space to answer that august and
ruthless man of note, one Robert
F. Eane. It is with the greatest
mirth that we watch him beat, his
drum of criticism, and tell the
world that .... “in my opinion
there is little campus journalism
worse than C. N. II. ’s column, un
less it be the Student Mirror.”
My dear Lane, your attack is one
of the most pleasant attempts at
criticism which I have ever read.
You mean well, but like a great
many persons, you are only “yap
ping” at a world you don’t like.
Your criticism is meant well, but
like the old adage a certain place
is paved with those intentions,
which you have.
Creation, my friend, is a trait
which is rare in the human gamut
of endeavor. Destructive manipula
tion of words by men who are ine
briated in the glory of their own
condemnation of this life are many.
A Ford horn toots just as loud
as a Buick, but1 a Ford is only a
cheap method of transportation. If
you want to blow a Ford horn all
your life, why that is your privi
In defe-uso of Mr. Godfrey; we
liavo known him from childood,
and he means well. His subtle con
tribution of drollery was only like
a nice piece of pie after a good
meal, while your attempt at the
ludicrous is like a pair of black
oxen trying to show up “In Memoi
iam” in a race.
Come again, life would be too
drab if you did not tell the world
its errors. Most humbly yours,
Editor Emerald:
Tour correspondent heard Mr.
Neihardt a few evenings ago in
Villard hall as ho read to a rather
scanty audience some of his lyric
poetry, and explained the plan of
his Epic of the West. Perhaps I
am of a west which is too far west
to appreciate at their relative value
the great happenings in our his
tory. Certainly I cannot conceive
of an Epic of the West which does
not emphasize the Lewis and Clark
expedition, and which ignores the
vital part Oregon took in determin
ing the future of the western coun
try. I cannot agree that the
Mormon movement, carried forward
amid the great suffering of its
dupes, excels in importance the
westward movement of an enter
prising, enlightened group such as
Jason Leo conducted. I am con
vinced that when the real Epic of
the West is written—if it can be
written—that Lewis and Clark,
John McLoughlin, Jason Lee, the
Champoeg Assembly and others of
which westerners—far westerners—
know, will be common names there

To tlie Editor:
At yesterday's assembly the
freshmen, who have been chided
several times of late for leaving
I he balcony before the end of the
verse of Old Oregon, stuck to their
places fairly well. A few of them
left before the end, but the whole
rear end of the lower floor faded
away and “Marched down the!
field,” about five lines ahead of the !
song. This sets a bad example and :
it might be where the frosh learned
it in the first place.

Ballots Given Out to All
Campus Organizations
Though no definite returns have
yet been turned in on the Bok
peace plan vote, a thorough canvas
of all campus living organizations
has been made and ballots dis
tributed. Nearly 2,000 ballots
were given out in all to the 39 or
ganizations, including fraternities
and halls of residence.
The ballots will be collected and
tabulated early this afternoon and
the results will be sent to the main
headquarters of the Bok award.
The reports so far indicate a ma
jority in favor of the proposed plan.
Definite results will appear in to
morrow’s Emerald.
The Bok peace plan is being laid
before the people of the United
States for their approval or dis
approval. The contest for schemes
which would suitably solve the
problem of preserving amity and
co-operation for peace between na
tions brought forth a large number
of considered and serious plans.
The plan as chosen by the jury
of award has been given to the Am
erican people in order to secure
their viewpoint and also to inculcate
in the popular mind a real senti
ment for the preservation of inter
national peace.
The plan in brief is that the
United States shall at once enter
the permanent court of internation
al justice under the conditions
stated by Secretary Hughes and
President Harding in 1923; that
she shall offer co-operation to the
present League of Nations as a
body of mutual counsel. The con
ditions attached are that moral
force and public opinion be sub
stituted for military and economic
force originally implied in articles
X and XIV, that the Monroe Doc
trine be safeguarded, that no ob
ligations be accepted under the
treaty of Versailles except by act
of Congress; that League member
ship be opened to all nations and
that the continuing development of
international law be provided for.
As a result of campus interest in
the affair the student government
decided that a straw vote of the
student opinion would satisfy a
real demand and arouse a sentiment
among the students either for or
against this current of national life.
