Junior Week-End, But No Guests
Til is is an important day in tlie iiistory of the student life
on the Oregon campus. The fate of Junior Week-end is to be
decided. Not only will this Junior Week-end be affected, but
the voice of the student body today will certainly influence
future events of a similar nature.
With the growth of the University to its present size Junior
Week-end has become overgrown. The “professional week
ender,” the hanger-on of the University campus has come each
year to plague and vex us. He has been so numerous that the
original good which came to Oregon from having Junior Week
end is almost entirely lost. For two or three days of eaeli
spring term they come and play at the expense of students,
who in many cases, are barely able to keep themselves in the
Junior Week-end in recent years has labeled Oregon as a
center of fun and frivolity. High school principals all over the
state regard it as a nuisance, and at a recent meeting in Port
land, Oregon, educators hinted strongly that the state institu
tions ought to do something to remedy the evil.
• The incident of the high school boy who carried home the
report of his “great time,” thereby deciding his parents that
the University was too frivolous and that they would send their
son East, is a good example of the kind of an advertisement
Junior Week-end is.
'Three plans are up for consideration today. The first pro
poses to keep Junior Week-end in its presold form. Campus
opinion is apparently so strong against tins that there is little
need to discuss it further.
The second suggests doing away entirely with the event.
The value of keeping certain events of Junior week-end for the
sake of stimulating Oregon spirit is evident, and it is thought
probable that this plan will not meet with favor.
The suggestion that is expected to carry is the one proposing
that Junior Week-end be kept, minus the guests. This would
probably mean that the canoe fete, the junior prom, and the
junior vod-vil would be kept. These three events all have a
definite place in University life. Up to this time the students
have had little time to enjoy them due to the grind of taking
care of the prepper hordes.
An alumnus who was on the campus yesterday expressed
great interest in the proposed change. “1 wonder why some
one didn t thing ot ii before. ’ lie was a man who has been in
touch with high school officials in various parts of the state,
and lie says they are almost unanimous in condeming the an
nual practice of drawing the students away from their work,
lie held that the contusion caused in the high schools by Junior
Week-end injured the reputation of the institution with a great
many people of the state.
Some guests have already been invited for this Junior
Week-end. Most campus organizations have held off their in
vitations until they could see what the opinion of the campus
would be. It the ‘‘prepper-less” week-end measure passes, as
is probably will do, these guests can be asked down at some
other time. There need be no hard feelings on that score.
An expression from the administration office of the Uni
versity indicated that the feeling from that quarter generally
favored a change. There was no inclination to interfere in any
way with student action, however; but the statement was made
that very little real value comes to the institution from the
present form of Junior Week-end.
The referendum on this important question will be held
between nine arid four today. Every registered student is en
1 titled to a vote. The opinion rendered will govern the final ac
tion of the student council tonight.
To leave Junior Week-end in its present form is out of the
question. To abolish it entirely, thereby eliminating desirable
events, would be harmful. To approve the elimination of
guests is the needed remedy.
Vote today for the third plan.

To the Editor—
Should baseball be abolished at
Oregon this spring season? This
question has been recently sprung
upon and around the campus, with
some saying that it should be
abolished on account of lack of
sufficient interest in the diamond
sport, coupled with unfavorable
weather conditions in April and
May, while others vehemently cry
out in protest that the national
game should be, and must be main
tained as one of our major inter
Of course, it is a pure fallacy to
say that baseball as a college sport
is losing interest because it is a
professional sport, and that specta
tors do not get as much thrill in
a game played by college amateurs.
It is somewhat true that gate re
ceipts from college bsaeball games
are not sufficient to meet the cur
rent expenses during the season, but
if the majority of the students
favor the plan of maintaining base
ball at Oregon, this should not in
terfere with Oregon’s participating
in the race for baseball supremacy
in the conference.
It is entirely out of the question
that the athletic council of the
University should ever think of vot
ing to abolish our great national
game. On the other hand, it should
give very possible encouragement
to make baseball as popular as
football. Oh, what a dull and quiet
place the campus would be in the
spring without the sound of famil
iar base knocks, doubles, triples
and Babe Ruth stuff!
Would it not bo a subject of j
ridicule, if not disgrace, to drop i
America's premier sport at Oregon,
while on the other side <jf the
ocean the boys are religiously tak
ing up this sport, and are threat
ening to beat the Americans at
their own jjnu'i
Jack Benefiel, the graduate
manager, reports that Oregon has
received a challenge from Meiji
university of Japan to a game of
baseball. The boys of Meiji are
champions in Japan, having defeat
ed the strong Waseda university,
which had made several trips to |
the United States. It is most prob- j
able that the Japanese college stars!
will be our guests this spring. In 1
case we play the Japanese college
champions this spring, Oregon will
travel across the great pond and j
pla\ them in 1925.
Oregon must prepare herself for j
the international battle. The Am ,
! ericans are known world over for
I their baseball ability, and if Ore
! gon cannot beat our Japanese
neighbor, something is wrong.
| It is not too early to start train
ing for the battery men. O. A. C.
i pitchers are going to start limber
] ing up this week. Whoever is go
ing to coach baseball for the var
sity nine, a call must be sent out
soon for possible moundsmen and
catchers. This is the only way to
unearth twirling talents as well as
j catching caliber.

REPUBLICAN CLUB ATTACKED
To the Editor:
The Emerald, of late, announced
the appearance of yet another campus
organization; this time it is a Stu
dent Republican club.
The Oregon wearers of the senator
ial toga and others of their ilk has
tily despatched congratulations to the
sponsors of this movement. Other
parties as yet maintain discreet sil
ence; but ere long we may expect a
deluge of such groups as the Student
Socialist Society, the Democratic
Demagogues, the Campus Communist
Clique, and myriads of others repre
senting all brands of political faith.
Tn view of the growing clouds of
dissatisfaction on the political hori
zon, such a club perhaps looms as an
oasis in the desert to shrewd politi
cal bosses -who find their popularity
waning under the onslaught of Bok
peace plans and the results of recent
investigations into government leases.
What possible excuse, from the
standpoint of the student, exists for
the addition of another group to a
campus overly burdened with socie
ties ranging from groups of students
from some particular locality to ones
comprised of those enrolled in the
various language departments?
While it is well that the followers
of the Grand' Old Party commune to
gether over the latest derelictions of
the insurgents, why the necessity for
a close-knit organization? Presuma
bly we are here to secure an educa
tion. Yet from the ever-increasing
number of these time-absorbing so
cieties, groupR, and clubs the con
clusion might well be reached that
we are here for the sole purpose of
seeing how many such organizations
we might attend and to how many we
might contribute financially. Surely
a little running away ■would facili
tate a return to the all-essential busi
ness of getting an education.
Are party politics of such vast im
port that we must needs forsake our
studies to participate in the petty
bickering of political henchmen? Is
the campus so devoid of real issues
that we must wander afield into the
realm of political uncertainty and illu
ANSWERING THE “COLONEL”
To flip Editor
At last Colonel Lender lias broken
the silence. He has evaded to answer
my accusations and in an attempt to
be fanny he has convinced me more
than ever of a Hindu phrase. “As a
man approaches liis sixties he begins
to loose his talents.” Part of the
statements T had made were proved
by me from quoting his own letter
which showed that he was taking
down notes about me. Tt is for the
readers to decide as to who is the
more proper inmate of the Salem in
stitution he refers to in his commun
ication. However, T have said
enough and T am mighty sorry for
having told some truth about a fig
ure so popular ns he. My intention
was to show that the British spying
system is much more elaborate than
that of the Germans about which we
heard so much during the World war.
By the way T may add here that
all the British spies are not neces
sarily paid. Some of them are al
ready officers under different capa
cities and so they do not receive any
remuneration for their contribution
to the “black list” book.
