The Students Have Chosen Well
'JpHURSDAY at the regular Associated Students assembly
Randall Jones formally turned over the leadership of the
A. S. U. O. to Walter Malcolm, recently elected president for
next year. Malcolm’s speech was short and appropriate. Ilis
quiet, self-possessed manner inspires confidence. The students
need have no fears for administration of their affairs during
the University year 1925-26.
Particularly pleasing was the fundamental thought under
lying Malcolm’s words. He referred to the three presidents
immediately preceding him, justly attributing to each a proper
share in the establishment of a splendid piece of work. John
MacGregor conceived the idea of an Oregon Student Union
building, Claude Robinson organized the initial drive and im
planted an enthusiastic resolve in the student body to acquire
that building, and Randal^ Jones has placed the plan upon a
business-like and scientific basis.
President Malcolm, in mentioning this work, commented
aside that he feared there is nothing big nor startling left for
his administration to initiate, but that he felt in such a case
his course will be to carry forward as far as possible the plans
already started. However, if new problems arise next year
which would come under the jurisdiction of the student body,
Malcolm stated, he will endeavor to the best of iiis power to
meet them adequately and efficiently.
The students of the University of Oregon, in general a con
servative group, could not ask for a more sane outline of policy.
There will be no startling revolutions of government, no little
meditated wild schemes, no hurtful distempers, to hamper the
steady progress which has marked the A. S. U. O. during the
last few years.
A loyal and competent group of officers and representa-1
tives has been elected to serve with the new president. Each
has shown merit in unselfish service to the University. Each
now has an increased opportunity to fulfill the promise of that
previous devotion. < - • • « . > «. » i
In one week, on Friday night, at the annual Emerald Ban
quet, the present editor of the Emerald will deliver the keys
to his office to Edward Miller. He gives up his typewriter to
his successor with a real feeling of regret that his time has been
served. He will no longer have the privilege of controlling the!
opinions expressed through the editorial column of the daily, i
There have been difficult, precarious incidents this year
which have required much in the way of conscientious truth
seeking and exposition in the face of many pressures. In turn
ing over the editorial reins to Edward Miller the regret of
withdrawing fjjom further active participation on the Emerald
is greatly lessened by knowledge of the University’s next
Editor Miller will publish a paper that will be lively, full
of interest, sparkling with progressive ideas, llis editorials
will be well-written, sane, colorful, but above all straightfor
ward and unflinching in standing for the right as he sees it.
The Emerald will not be a mere mirror of majority campus
opinion, nor of administrative desires, but with the best inter
est^ ot the students held first and above all else, the opinions
and facts stated in the co^inm will be dependable and inspire
confidence in their leadership.
_ The student body has chosen well in the elections. The
University year 1925-26 will be a cycle of sound, sure progress,
resulting from a dignified, upstanding self-government.
Notices will be printed in this column
for two i&sues only. Copy must be

it is to be published, p must be

KERBY MILLER’S ‘TEACHING’
jxo the Editor;
Since the recent meeting of the
board of regents of the University,
there has been considerable specu
lation on the campus concerning
the board’s motive for refusing to
re-elect Korby S. Miller to the fac
ulty of the department of phil
osophy. Although it has been im
possible to discover the regents’
objection to Mr. Miller, numerous
rumors, purporting to account for
the action, have been circulated
around the campus.
According to one report, Mr. Mil
ler, during the past year, has been
a failure as a “teacher.” This let
ter is written largely as a protest
against this rumor, whether or noT
it influenced the regents’ action.
As members of Mr. Miller’s classes,
we believe that we are qualified
to judge his “teaching.”
As a pedagogue, Mr. Miller would
probably not claim extraordinary
powers. He is rather an advanced
student in his subject, philosophy,
and it is through his knowledge of
this subject, rather than through
pedagogy, that he reached the be
ginners with whom he came in con
tact on the Oregon campus.
Pedagogy has its advantages.
Through psychological tricks, it is
sometimes possible for an instruc
tor to pound into unwilling heads
facts that would otherwise be un
heeded. Such methods are indis
pensible in high schools, but it is
lamentable that they are necessary
in a university. Yet, what Oregon
professor who has resigned himself
to existing conditions has not his
individual system of magic?
In a department of philosophy,
however, it is even more regrettable
that pedagogical sleight of hand
should be expected. Philosophy has
no facts for the instructor to pre
sent, for the student to learn and
reproduce. It has problems for
thought and discussion, but noth
ing to “teach.” The instructor can
only lead the discussion in an in- j
telligent manner; it is upon the in
terest and intelligence of the stu
dent that the value of the class de-1
It was as a lender in discussion j
of problems that Mr. Miller acted i
in his courses during the past year.
Outside of the class room, he was
always available for conferences,
where students cleared up individ
ual difficulties. For a few class
members who only listened, expect
ing to hear “pearls of wisdom” for
hasty entry into open note books,
the incoherent and faltering at
tempts of interested students must
have eseemed sterile. But 'these
free discussions, for those who took
part, had a value that could not
be approached by the best pedago
To members of Mr. Miller’s ele-j
mentarv ethics class, offered dur
ing the winter term, the rumor that
moral views expressed by him in i
the classroom were responsible for
his dismissal comes as a surprise. \
Since the rumor does not state what |
these forbidden views might be, ]

STUDENT TO BE TRIED
IN COLLECTION SUIT
Bert Gooding, star catcher of the
law school baseball nink, is about to
get caught—so it seems. He is be
ing sued by Robert Chrisman, also
of the lew scho’ol, for non-payment
of a promissory note, dated April
2, and due Hay 2, for the sum of
The defense charges fraud on the
part of the plaintiff. Gooding says
that Chrisman obtained his signa
ture to the note under the pretense
of getting his name*on a petition
for the return of beer, light wines
and free lunches. He also claims
that Chrisman charged him one dol
lar for the priviledge of being al
lowed to sign the petition.
Chrisman admits that he, know
ing Gooding as well as he does, was
very foolish to loan him money at
| that time, for the should have
known that Gooding would prob
ably claim irresponsibility due to
his hangover from All Fool’s day.
James Ross will undertake the
defense of Gooding, and Harley W.
Covalt will be attorney for the
plaintiff. The case will be tried
in moot court next Tuesday night
at 7 o’clock, in the county court

Obak’s elects to its Hall of Fame
the following men whom the Col
lege thinks deserve a place in the
rank (very rank) and defile of our
campus. In making this selection
the committee has investigated and
observed the prospective candidates
through the year, thus making sure
that no mistake will be made when
the marble busts of the men are
placed in the magnificent new Obak
Hall, now nearing completion.
George Godfrey—Because he is
the campus financier and has the
most creative imagination in the
ktate. George's claim to fame is
combining imagination to create
cash for Godfrey.
Bob Mautz—Simply because he
has big feet. His feet would admit
him into any Hall of Fame.
Duke Carter—Because he is a per
petual fountain of youth—bub
ling over with enthusiasm.
Walter Evans Kidd—Because he j
writes such good communications.
Randall Jones—Because he shaved
his mvstasch. thus improving the
looks of the campus.
