Sword and Plume
fjpHE KNIGHT of old rode forth to war with all “the boast
of heraldry, the pomp of power.” Of his capacity for serv
ice his sword was the symbol. At the sign of the sword he was
known to be a princely gentleman with a taste for daring. At
the sign of the plume he was revealed to be still the princely
gentleman, one with an eye to looking well in the lists. And
why not, if by so doing he could win the favor of the queen of
love and beauty?
The Knights of the Yellow Casque, the Oregon Knights, are
not such a far cry from the chivalry of an olden, a golden age.
True, they do not escort trembling young damsels through dark
forests nor rescue them from marauding bands of ruffians, but
they do practical things like directing the traffic through the
town during Homecoming, and serving as guides for preppers
at the conferences of high school student body officers and edi
tors held annually on the campus.
Without their trusty swords, the knights nevertheless keep
ever before them the ideal of service. They work without fi
nancial support from the student body. They expect no reward
except in service itself. These small, yet important services—
meeting visiting teams at the trains, handling crowds at games,
collecting tickets—were not in the hands of any organized
group until 1921.
The group has developed in efficiency from the very time of
its organization, until this year it accomplished for the first
time in history tlie task of absolutely clearing Willamette street
of all traffic during the noise parade, it cooperated with the
0. A. C. Knights in handling 18,000 people during the Oregon
O .A. C. game. It. has received written praise from the Wash
ington Knights for the creditable way in which it handled the
crowds at the Washington game. It has ushered at all football
and basketball games; at assembly on Thursday; at the Oxford
debate. As members of the national body of Intercollegiate
Knights, the Oregon Knights have lived up to the finest,
The Knights have served the campus in a very real way.
Now they are establishing a new tradition, by giving a costume
ball this evening which they intend to make an annual affair.
The idea of a costume ball is in the nature of an inspiration. It
brings back a breath of the colorful, the graceful. There ns no
queen of love and beauty to bestow her glove as a favor, but
the campus folk can show their favor in a substantial way by
consistent cooperation. And who would deny a plume to a
brave and princely gentlemanV
A Good Start
TF PRKI’AKATION and foresight can assure favorable re
sults, tlit'ii the Women's League convention to be held here
this spring should be a decided success. Announcement of com
mittees has been made, and it seems that no detail has been for
gotten by the women handling the arrangements. The next
step is the cooperation of the entire campus in entertaining the
It is truly an opportunity for Oregon to be the seat of this
meeting, for it is an endeavor worthy of whatever effort is
exerted. The women on this campus will hear the timely dis
cussions sure to come from such a group. One hundred women
from colleges west of the Appalachian mountains will take up
problems, the solution of which should tend to raise the tone
of campus lite. l'he questions of housing girls, of raising schol
astic standards, of regulating campus activities these are but
a few of the topics which must claim attention, and bring us a
step nearer to the ideal balance in the University program.
1 lays of hard work are in store for the many young women
on the committee, but their compensation will be the realiza
tion that much good may come to college women as a result.

To the Editor of the Emerald:
I wish to correct a story which
has appeared in several of the news
papers of the state during the past
week. The tale of the abduction
of the University girl was given
out by the girl herself under a
spell of hysteria and fainting. She
is well known to me, as is also the
fact of her frequent spells of faint
ing and hysteria. *
She left Eugene alone on the
stage for Cottage Grove on Monday,
February 2, and was recognized as
she boarded the stage by an ae
quaintance at the Eugene terminal.
After leaving the stage at Cottage
Grove, she fainted, recovering in a
dazed condition, became hysterical,
and gave a story of abduction to
the officer by whom she was re
ported. The story which she told
is typical of such hysteria and is
unsubstantiated by any fact. There
were no men accompanying her and
none were implicated in the case.
Very truly yours,
Rean of Women, Universitv of
News spatches indicate that the
University of Oregon may be denied
participation in the Pacific Coast
inter collegiate golf tournament be
cause golf at the University is not
recognized ns a minor sport and
consequently no funds are avail
able with which to send players to
the tourney.
Tf the student council heeds re
cent agitation among golf enthusi
asts and votes to include golf
among the recognized minor sports,
that body will have acted wisely.
Golf has become a national sport
and is worthy of inter collegiate
participation along with the other I
minor sports—wrestling, tennis and !
swimming. Prominent eastern uni
versities include golf among their
competitive sports, as do Washing
ton, California and Stanford on the j
Golf lends itself to successful in- !
ter university competition for seve- j
n» 1 reasons. Tt reouires a high dp- ;
gree of skill to piny a creditable*
game of golf. Tt demands n long)
period of practice and training. The
competitions may be carried op with
small expense to the universities,
l'erhaps the greatest factor in fa
vor of the game is the good derived
bv tli('. player.
Whether the aspirant makes the
TTniversity team or not. he receives
benefit in direct proportion to the
amount he has played. Tie profits
from the exercise, the practice, the
training: and golf, unlike certain
other games, brings pleasure to the
player whether winner or loser—-or
merely second rate scrub.
Also, the golfer need not abandon
his sport when he leaves college.
Tike the tennis player and swim
mer, and unlike the participant in
football, track and baseball, the
golfer mav continue throughout life
to reap the same benefits he de
rived from the game during his col
lege days.

Bacon Bun
The old call for “Bacon
Bun” and Coffee is get
ting pretty frequent
these days. It keeps us
busy turning them out
fast enough.
Don’t Judge From
T HE earth LOOKS flat enough! That’s why so many
thousand years came and went before our ancestors
even suspected the terrestial globe of being round. Their
eyes deceived them!
Don’t depend upon appearances to guide you right.
Don’t buy goods on the strength of looks alone. Mer
chandise with a well-known name has the call. Only the
maker of a good product can afford to advertise his name.
Attempts to popularize unworthy goods can not succeed.
Wise merchants and manufacturers seek the good
papers to tell the stories of their wares. The publishers
seek the reputable advertising for their readers’ guidance.
Well-informed buyers seek news of good merchandise
through the columns of the best papers.
This proves the value of advertising. Neither adver
tiser nor publisher can prosper without your patronage.
Therefore, it is to their advantage to cater to you. They
do it, too.
It is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by the
messages they lay before you—the advertisements.
Busy is not the word to express
the state of affairs that exist in i
the house this week. We are ex-]
peeting one of the national offi- j
cers; so of course that means ]
lots of entertaining. First, let j
me tell you about the partyj
we are giving for our guest next i
We are making plans for a for- '
mal dinner ,to which a number of j
the alums have promised to come. ]
As our color scheme is to be car- j
ried out in red and white, we ]
have placed an order at Under" j
wood and Elliott’s Grocery for j
some of that delicious plain ]
white cake which they sell. Wish j
I had a piece now!
The centerpiece for the table j
will be a gilded wicker basket!
filled with fragrant red carna- j
tions. I was with Peg today;
when she placed the order at I
Raup’s Floral Shop. These car- j
nations are so large and double j
that they resemble gorgeous j
roses. Then, too, the shape of j
the basket is attractive becausej
of its unusuplness. Sprigs of j
fern are to be wired, so that j
they will stay at just the right j
College keeps one
busy trying to look
the best. Yesterday,
between my one and
b,three o’clock classes,
I went to the Co-ed Barber
Shop, which is right next to
the campus. Beally, if I had
to go down town every time that
I needed a haircut, I’d not have
one often, for it takes so long
to go down and back. My new
hair cut is called a French bob,
which is the newest fashion, so
they told me at the shop.
Haven’t you often wondered if
it were ever possible to have j
hands that feel and look like
those you see advertised in the
magazines. At Hasting Sisters,
where they employ only experts,
I got an oil manicure yesterday.
From now on, I think that I
shall have a manicure each week,
for it is a necessity if a person I
•wishes to be well groomed.
•■ * *
Mother insisted that I get a I
new formal gown, so I am hav
ing Mrs. Fannie L. Stansbie, 938
Willamette street, make it. I
got black georgette, as black is
so popular this season, and took
it up to her shop which is above
Penny’s store. She suggested
that I have only a touch of color
on it, so I am going to buy a
cherry-colored flower to wear on
the left shoulder.

The idea of a formal dinner |
does not frighten us now that |
Sigwart’s installed a Kelvinatori
an iceless ice box which is run §
by electricity and so regulated 1
that the temperature remains \
constant. In an ice box as soon |
as the ice starts melting the tern-1
perature drops. Put wilted vege- |
tables in the Helvinator for a 1
few hours and they come out 1
crisp and fresh, as a result our |
salads and vegetables are alwavs I
delicious. 1
Alice Graham announced her
engagement to Bob White last
Saturday at dinner. We'vo been
expecting it for a long time but
it "'ill probably be a surprise to
you. He gave her a beautiful
ring which he bought at Skeie’s.
It is platinum filagree with a
square set diamond. The stone
is quite large and has a great
deal of fire and sparkle. She’s
a lucky girl, don’t you think?
