Ph‘i Beta Kappa and Accomplishment
Twenty-four Oregon seniors are receiving congratulations
upon their election into Phi Beta Kappa, a recognition which for
decades has been given to brilliant students and which places
those so honored in the brotherhood of such men as the late
Woodrow Wilson, Or. Charles Eliot and John Quincy Adams.
Despite the notion that many persons hold that a Phi Beta
Kappa is a “grind” and a recluse, those who were elected
Thursday include many who have participated fully in campus
The student-body president was chosen, having the second
highest average, 1.43, an unusual accomplishment and one de
serving of applause. This man carried a heavy burden of A. S.
U. O. executive work all year and in previous years was always
interested in the larger campus movements. Besides this he has
earned his way through the University. There are others in the
list, many self-supporting and nearly all active, whose election
is proof sufficient that the busiest people do the finest work.
In the face of such accomplishment what right have ath
letes and others to shirk scholastic tasks or desert a coach when
they are most needed just because they are “too busy”?
There is such a thing as too much activity, especially if that
activity is lacking in the quality that makes it worth while.
There are types of campus endeavor that add materially to the
fullness of University experience.
Students like Claude Robinson demonstrate just how full
and worthwhile four years at Oregon can be. The Student
Union drive brought some of the other kind' of students into
the lime-light. Compare them with our student-body president
or with any one of other campus leaders who made Phi Beta
Kappa. It is easy to see who gets the most out of life; but
more important that that, it is also easy to discern who makes
the campus, or the world for that matter, better for having
lived ill it.
Candidates are finding it difficult to determine just what
degree of cordiality they should assume, these days. Cheer up,
it will all be over next Wednesday night.
We wonder what kind of platform the candidates for presi
dent and for vice president will submit for publication early
next week. Two hundred and fifty words can say a lot.
The campus is looking forward to the Junior Vod-vil which
is scheduled for tonight. Last year it was the best show of the
season and much is expected of tonight’s performance.

SATURDAY, A. M.
Drag out the oil wells ami the steel
bridges, local politicians are holding
sway. After listening to the merits
of a multitude of beings who have
mouths that can talk, acquaintances
among their friends, girls that have
i been in minds for years and the like,
the political season is on, for better
and for worse, with the accents on
the last syllable.
The nice thing about student body
I elections around here is the some
i body always wins, and the rest can
get eonsoluation, satisfaction and re
ief at Obak’s Kollege Klub.
There are several new and pre
viously unconsidered elements in this
year’s campaign. For example, the
Krier has just learned that many of
the prospective officers of the A. 8.
IT. O. gained confidence in their
ability from Richards, the magician,
who visited the Heilig theater re
Figging will also have consider

Politicians without dates will be as
scarce as Phi Beta Kappas on the
Krier staff for the next seven days.
One energetic self promoter has re
served a complete section at the
.Tunior Vod-vil and another has al
most a complete monopoly on the of
ferings of the Anchorage Raceway.
Politics are on, and somebody is
going to lose—there will be an im
portant meeting of the Lame Pucks
at Obak's Kollege Klub Thursday,
May 8. invitations will be sent later.
The Old Spirit
Two local aspirants for office get
ting along like brothers in the pre
vailing political siege. Politics here
are always clean—in fact reputations
sell for about 15 cents a dozen during
this season of scholastic year. “Po
litical Fellowship” is the title of the
IS TO LEAVE!
Due to the fact that the present
editor of the Krier has deemed it
wise to not return to school next fall
there is considerable excitement in
political circles in regard to a new
editor. The wide spread influence
of this publication, its assistance to
the campus in general makes the
election of a new man very difficult.
In order to avoid politics with their
mud and slander the election for the
Krier editorship has been postponed
to a later date. However, it is to
be remembered that while Krier edi
tors may come and may go the ser
ice, food, smokes and fellowships of
the Kollege Klub goes on forever.

CAMPUS HIGH HEARS
TALK BY FIRE RANGER
Paul Wiesendanger, of the United
States forest service, gave a talk to
the University high school assembly
this week as a part of their program
for fire prevention week. Mr. Wies
endanger had charge of the Eagle
creek camp on the Columbia River
Highway last year and has served as
a ranger in a number of places.
His lecture consisted of naming and
explaining the use of the various in
strumments that are used by forest
rangers for the prevention and check
ing of fires. He also showed a num
ber of slides of the timber and the
means of its protection, and a film
put out by the forest service showing
the danger of fires and their spread.

Henry Cavendish, an eccentric millionaire
recluse, who devoted his life to research,
was the discoverer of the H and the O in
H20. In fact he first told the Royal Society
of the existence of hydrogen.
He found what water was by making it
himself, and so became one of the first of
the synthetic chemists.
Cavendish concluded that the atmosphere
contained elements then unknown. His
conclusion has been verified by the dis
covery of argon and other gases.
The Research Laboratories of the General
Electric Company have found a *use for
argon in developing lamps hundreds of
times brighter than, the guttering candles
which lighted Cavendish’s laboratory.
