Entered aa second class matter at the post office at Eugene, Oregon, under act
•f Congress of March 3, 1879.
An Essential Safety Valve
T^OTICE of a motion to be voted on within the month, to pro
hibit any form of athletic contest after 6 p. m. except on
Fridays, Saturdays and holidays was read at faculty meeting
this week. The motion, if passed, would be a death blow to
participation by the University of Oregon in conference bas
ketball, swimming and wrestling meets, and other athletic com
petition. It would be impossible to arrange a satisfactory sched
ule with week-end and holiday evenings, only, availiable.
No reason is advanced in support of this proposal, but it
may be assumed the proposed ruling is prompted from belief
that such contests on week nights interfere with students’
With games starting promptly at 7:15 and generally fin
ished by 8:30, it should be apparent to any, except those tem
peramentally unfit to enjoy watching such activities, that the
student receives no damage from the standpoint of lesson prep
aration. Rather, he will return to his work with revived in
terest and more enthusiastic application for having passed a
pleasant hour of relaxed mental effort.
Adoption of the motion will mean abolition of practically
all forms of competitive athletics during the winter term. There
are few better outlets for relieving the pressure of superfluous
energy than in the primitive appeal of organized physical con
The government requires that a safety valve be installed on
every steam boiler. This is done to prevent accumulation of
excessive pressure. Basketball, particularly, serves as an ex
cellent safety valve for the student body during the “heavy”
“Library Browsings”
'Jf'HE PLEASURES obtained from acquiring the voluntary
reading habit have been stressed a number of times this
• year by the Emerald. It has pointed out that one of the great
est blessings a student can receive from his four years upon the
campus is discovery of the hidden treasures buried beneath the
battered covers of ancient volumes. Glittering gold may be
found, also, in later works, perhaps with leaves as yet uncut
and still exhaling a delightful odor of fresh paper and printer’s
The one who learns to seek these riches while in college
will have his blood fired with an insatiable burning for more
and new adventures upon this sea of literature, lie will become
a rover, and aloft in the swinging crow’s nest , will scan the
shimmering sea with eager eyes, ever ready to raise from joyous
lips the ringing shout of “Land Ahoy!”
Commencing with this morning’s Emerald, and on each Sat
urday hereafter, “Library Browsings” will be printed. This
weekly feature may serve to point the way for those to whom
the sea is yet unknown. It should engender courage and assist
in overcoming a natural shrinking from essaying its well-nigh
boundless expanse without chart or compass. To those who
have already felt the fruitful breezes and come to revel in
story controversy or to relax in the calms of peace-giving
philosophy, it may intrigue, perhaps, to uncrossed seas and
untouched islands.
Several thousand handbills will be distributed at the next
basketball game at Ohio State University. Four rules of sports
manship which will printed upon them might be read with
profit by Oregon’s own rooting section. The suggestions con
cern courtesy, fairness, hissing, and the right of the coach to
do the coaching.
Examinations at the University of Indiana have been post-!
poned two weeks and classes will be dismissed for an indefinite
time, due to a shortage of water in Bloomington. No fear of
such a catastrophe happening in Eugene these days.

Letters to the EMERALD from stu
dents and faculty members are
welcomed, but must be signed and
worded concisely. If it is desired, the
writer's name will be kept out of
print. It must be understood that the
editor reserves the right to reject
A clever little editorial full of
advice and suggestions, whereby
some aristocratic order or other
might be of some permanent good
to its alma mater, was the thing
I had in mind. But all that is
spoiled now—-thanks to the scath
ing note tacked on the bulletin
board over my latest literary effort,
so aptly titled: “Are We Goofy?”
This note addresses us as a “neat
soul” and the instigator of the in
famy wishes to know who the auth
or is, but this can never be because
we have neither inclination nor
training for an incounter with any
one carrying a chip on his shoulder.
Things are much better left as they
The punishment and publicity are
greater than I can bear. I am just
as goofy as the rest of the goofs.
The whole trouble lies in a divine
ability to climb a tree and get a
bird’s eye view of the situation.
Hence, not being a “neat soul” it
goes against my better nature to
accept so much undeserved praise.
“What do you wear?” is the
question. Well, to begin at the
beginning: On top of the head are
a few scant wind-blown locks;
’ne'ath this drab crown appears a
face well, protected from the weath
er by cold cream, rouge and powder;
the frame of this lowlev worm is
sheathed in a scant, one piece, wool
dress; and the feet are usually to
be found somewhere in the dark
depths of galoshes. There has been
no mention of a slicker for the
principle reason that we don’t pos
sess one.—Goofy.
Women’s doughnut swimming
meets are scheduled to begin at 5
p. m. Thursday, February 12. It is
j imperative that each participant
I hand in a heart O. K. before 1:15
| p. m. of that date. The customary
j requirement of six practices has
been waived, according to Miss Bar
bara Page, swimming instructor.
Although in some cases the teams
are crippled due to vaccination for
smallnox, the following houses have
signified their intention of enter
ing teams: Pi Beta Phi, Gamma Phi
Beta. Sigma Beta Phi, Susan Camp
bell hall. Alpha Chi Omega, Hen
dricks hall and Alpha Phi. Tt is
honed that other houses will enter
teams in the meet, as an evidence
of true sportsmanship in the face
of such odds.
Class meets will take place im
mediatelv following the doughnut
series. Practice for class swimming
begins Monday, February f>, at four
o’clock, and will continue through
the doughnut meets. The reouire
meats of four practices and a heart
O K. will be strictly adhered to.
All girls intending to come out for
practice are requested to sign a
chart which has been placed on the
bulletin board in the middle ent
rance to the Woman’s building.

The past week was a busy one
for the University health service.
During the early part of the week
there was a general rush of stu
dents to be vaccinated and several
hundred were treated. On Monday
there were 199 patients at the dis
pensary and on Tuesday, 258, Most
of these were there for vaccination.
The 258 patients on Tuesday es
tablished a new high record for any
one day at any time during the his
tory of the University dispensary,
according to Dr. G. A. Boss. Yes
terday, the vaccination rush being
over, there were very few visitors.
There are only a few patients in
the infirmary at the present time.
Last week there were many stu
dents there as a result of. small
pox vaccinations, but they have
practically all recovered and the in
firmary is almost .empty in anti
cipation of housing those who were
vaccinated this week.
Students have been unusually co
operative in the matter of vaccina
tion, according to Doctor Ross and
he does not anticipate any further
trouble with smallpox on the cam

Irrigation by electrically driven pumps has made hundreds
of thousands of acres of desert land in the Intermountain
West blossom like the rose.
For a few cents a month per acre, electricity—the giant
worker brings the life-giving water from distant lakes and
rivers to rainless valleys, producing rich harvests of fruits
and vegetables, cereals and forage.
What electricity is doing for the farmer is only a counter
part of what it is doing for Industry, Transportation, City
and Country life or any of the professions. It is a tool
•ready for your use and which, wisely used, will make the
impossible of today an accomplished fact tomorrow.
How electricity does these things is important to the
student in a technical school but what electricity can do
is important to every college man or woman, no matter
what their life’s work may be.
