Beggars and Choosers
The new student-body administration must of necessity main
tain an economy policy administration. The A. fe. U. 0. is
thousands of dollars in debt, largely because recent impiove
inents on Hayward field have swallowed up any amount that
might have been used to reduce the student association debt.
The graduate manager reports that no. large expenditures
will be necessary during the next few years. If the finance
committee is careful and if Mr. Benefiel pursues his present
economical policy, something ought to be clipped from the debt
load by this time next year. The interest on what Oregon owes
is continually piling up and unless something is done immediate
ly the debt will continue to grow.
Each activity cries for more money. There lias not always
been justice in the way the money has been apportioned. The
glee clubs, for instance, should not be farmed out while some
athletic activities are spending more than they need.
Some larger institutions have more money for activities than
Oregon does. Wealthy alumni are olten responsible for that.
It is not a case of what other schools have. Oregon’s debt is
a fact. Beggars can’t be choosers. The student body must
cooperate with the Executive council in the economy program
that conditions will make necessary next year.
The Oregana—A Worthy Monument
The University year lias no thrill that is quite the same as
one which the student receives when the Oregana comes out.
Oregana Day is always one of the red-letter events, of campus
The 1924 Oregana, which appeared yesterday, more than
lives up to tin* tradition of excellence which former year books
have set. It. is truly a work of art and a monument to the editor,
manager and staff.
The creation of an Oregana consumes months of time. The
minds of a large group of workers, as well as a vast amount of
physical effort, are required before any such product as the
campus saw yesterday can be produced.
Behind the large Oregana organization is the spirit and
the organizing ability of the editor. There are few students on
the Oregon campus who have given so much to the student body
as has Miss Freda Goodrich.
Yesterday, when she received tin1 congratulation of the
campus and saw the result of her labors appreciated, she must
have felt a supreme satisfaction in knowing that her year-long
efforts have resulted in something which will last down through
the years—the ever fruitful source of memories ol' these "days
The Executive council has just elected the Emerald manager
for the coming year. A man was chosen who has worked hard
that lie might know all the details ot the important place he
will occupy. The contacts which Mr. Leake lias already made
with Eugene business men assure successful management. With
an editor and manager of the calibre selected, the 1924-25 Em
erald should have a great year.

PLANET VENUS NEARING
EARTH BECOMES BRIGHTER
The planet Venus, which is so
prominent in the western skies in
the evenings, is getting brighter
and brighter, according to Prof.
E. H. McAlister, head of the
astronomy department. This is be
cause the bright side of the planet
is turning towards the earth and
because the planet is getting nearer
the earth. It will continue to get
brighter until May 24, when it
turns back again. Professor Me
Alister says that this is a good
year to watch heavenly bodies.
The moon is extraordinarily clear
these days. Mars is getting nearer
and nearer the earth, and there
are a couple of comets scheduled
to pass near the earth.

“Democrats of the Kingdom”
Walt Whitman was a democrat. He
so proclaimed himself as one re
sponsive to jthe universals of Nature
and humanity and found God as the
totality of all.
Robert Browning, for all his living
in an atmosphere of literary remote
ness from the work-a-dby world
struck frequently the democratic note.
Abraham Lincoln, as the world rec
ognizes, was the great democrat in
Ralph Waldo Emerson, with all his
philosophic poise, scorned the usual
distinctions by which the world grades
men and although he seemed to tread
a way aloof from the common herd,
was yet a noble democrat.
Jesus of Nazareth was probably
the democrat supreme. Now as in
these days scientific scrutiny of his
period in history dims the dogma of
his divinity, there rises proportion
ately his message of democracy. He
was the great democrat of the spir

The Winning Candidate
Now that elections for the year are over
and your candidates have either won or
lost—there always remains a unanimous
vote getter—food at the Oregana—because
it more than fulfills your expectations and
makes you satisfied and pleased. It meets
with whole hearted campus approval.

The above illustration shows Ted
Gillenwaters, newly elected president
of the senior class, at his favorite
game. Ted spends several hours each
day at Obak’s and it is rumored ac
quired most of the votes which elected
him, at this famous college resort.
The platform on which he was elected
was to the effect that he would
spend the time on his class duties
which remained after his usual three
hours of pool at Obak’s every day.
Lyle Janz, of the Oregana fea
ture section, and Obak Kollege Krier
fame, is shown above running in or

emphatically denies that he has cut
a single class this year, but after
three or four minutes of cross-exam

arrived at the University, but re

his speech defect. It’s his good looks
