From the Younger Folk
By way of psychological experiment
some bright morning, say ‘Hello’ to a
first-year co-ed, a freshman, and wa-tch
for the response. Be all attention, for
the show is worth seeing.
You can’t mistake her. All eyes and
a turtle-neck sweater. She comes romp
ing down ‘Hello’ Bane, late for the ten
o’clock, a brilliant streak of color in the
finest finery mamma and papa can pro
vide. Probably Hie powder puff is busy,
but worry not about that. She will see
you if you are collegiate enough.
“Hello,” you say—but don’t expect an
All-eyes will look at, you from above
turtle neck. One of several things will
The powder puff may continue pow
dering; or all-eyes may frown; or may
not see you at all. Perhaps turtle neck
will never falter, passing serenely on to
the ten o’clock. As for saying “Hello”
—yon have a chance. A chance. If you
have the right tie and the correct under
graduate lilt to your bearing you may
get a condescending word of encourage
ment. They are not without their more
generous moments, delectable things.
Who can blame the green-lidded
species for not responding to the time
honored ‘Hello’ tradition When they re
ceive. such a frigid reception from the
fairer members of their class? Rather
discouraging, we should say.
Punishment has been provided for
male offenders in such situations. Sure
punishment and effective. Woe unto us,
though, in driving or leading or pleading
these brand new co-eds that have
descended upon us. Mere man, w'e must
admit, knows not how to cope with them.
Broken Glass and
Two or three times a year we have
with us the class parties. We had them
last year, without a doubt. While no
lives were lost—in fact—not even a limb
was lost, various principals managed to
splinter a good bit of glass and to give
a few doors the worst of the proposition.
Of late years the popular pastime
among the participants of the parties has
been to make the rounds to find which
gathering was the worst. Last year it
so happened that in one or two places
stray male members of other classes w*ere
corralled and almost beaten to death be
fore, they could escape. Frightfully
The logical solution of this deplor
able situation is to keep within the
bounds of one's own celebration. No olio
is invited to any dance but his own.
Class parties are a fine thing, if not
too rough. Therefore, stay and play in
your own backyard tomorrow night.
A committee of students in Harvard
University has outlined a “Confidential
(Juide of College Courses,” and printed
the manuscript in the ‘Harvard Crimson.’
The Guide includes descriptions and “in
side dope” of most of the freshman
courses along with most of the courses
open to new upperelassmcn. The report
is a serious attempt to give new students
an idea of the courses they are entering.
llow interesting if such an event were
to take plaee at Oregon. When the pages
were turned, several courses would most
certainly be among those listed. There
would be—Principles of Economies; Art
Appreciation; Modern Governments; Ele
mentary Accounting; Narration; English
History; Freshman Basic; Logic; Adoles
cence; and others.
The Book Nook
New that the brain children of Aldous Itux
ley, Carl Van Vechten, Max Beerbohm, Laurence
Meynell, and Ben llecht have ousted Iris March
and her mad, mad roadster from Hell whither
she came “pour le sport” FOB PURITY and she
has had to make her breathless passage into
the nether-world between Heaven and the place
of roaring fires and hot coals, we find the col
lege student of today confronted with the task
of living down Percy Marks and living up to
Wo have just heard that there are a number
of students who have not yet investigated The
Difficulty of Getting Married, otherwise call
ed Serena Blandish. Set to work on this impor
tant question at once, all •fou followers of the
great God of print, or may the curse of Shel
merdene remain with you always. Whether or
not this book was written by Max Beerbohm
or by Michael Arden shall not concern you, neo
phytes—but read! It is well.
We have found straying loose one of the
one thousand copies printed of “Paulus
Fy,” a charming little work by Helene
Mullins and Marie Gallegher. Although the
ideas of the book may be to a great extent
asinine, still the book should be read. In
decoration, it is a delight to the eye and in
contents it is a delight to the mind. When
Paulus Fy comes to the old man sitting
wearily on a huge store and says that this
must bo God—God takes no notice of his
presence and he cries, “It is I, Paulus Fy.”
And God says, “Eh.” “Fancy God saying
‘eh’.” Asinine? Perhaps—but it certainly
is wonderful reading.
In conclusion, oh you mighty who have sur
vived this far, let me most humbly beseech that
you have not overlooked Hudson’s “Green
Mansions,” Hamsun’s “Children of the Age,”
or Selma Lagerloff.
From Other Schools
When tho University of "Washington team
goes up against the University of British Co
lumbia in a game on October 31, it will play
American football one half the game, and
rugby the other half. This arrangement is in
keeping with the Washington policy of foster
ing close" relations with the British Columbia
college. “Washington hopes to compete with
the University of British Columbia in all
branches of sport within a few years,” says
the Washington daily.
“Resolved, That This House Favors Prohibi
tion” was the question debated at the Univer
sity of Indiana, when the team from that school
met the Cambridge, England, debate team on
October 13. The Indiana squad took the affir
mative side of the question.
“A deed, in comparison with which the love
and,willingness"of the ancient Spartan to suf
fer for his native country is as insignificant
ns an nfternoon date to the freshman queen,
has been discovered in our own university,”
says the Onklnhomn Daily, commenting upon
a student in full uniform seen going to drill
on a pair of crutches.
A REMEDY FOR LIBRARY DATES
“ Freshmen women are not to be permitted at
the library after 7:30 p. in.”—News item in In
diana Daily Student.
SPEAKING OF DATE HOURS—
At the University of Idaho the hour when
women must be in from dates has been extended
from II o’clock on Friday nights and 11:30 on
Saturday nights to 13 o’clock on both nights.
“Walking dates” will be on Sunday afternoons
from 4 to (> o ’clock. 'R. G.
EVENTS LEADING UP TO THE TRAGEDY
Here's a choice bit taken from the Ex
changes. It. might well be from Oregon:
Monday, makes resolution to study tomorrow.
Tuesday, goes to sleep over textbook. De
cides to wait until next day.
Wednesday, gets into all-night poker session.
Postpones studying again.
Thursday, is set up to a movie. Determines
to carry out his intention before week is over.
Friday, goes riding with the gang in a rented
flivver. Tells the world that week-end is best
time to “grind” anyhow.
Saturday, decides to celebrate end of week.
Process repeated with variations until final

is the handsomest male student on the
Because of the rush of ballots for the
Beauty Contest that have flooded the offices
of the Seven Seers, we have been neglectful
of that important issue, elections to associate
membership. We trust that those elected today
will not think it is because of lack of fore
sight on our part or ignorance of their merits
that elections are a day late, but because we
have sat up most of the night emptying the
ballot boxes. .
Therefore, with solemn declaration, the
Seven Seers elect to m/cmbership the following
for the following reasons: .
Bull Montana, because he can’t be
bothered with a publicity agent, be
cause he lends a willing ear to every
thing, and because he doesn’t wear
Freddie Martin, because he has a
hearty grip for everyone, because of the
business-like frown when he leads yells,
and because he’s so doggone Ritzy.
Andy Gump, because of his con
vincing line, and “Oh Man!”
Betty Cady, because she had the
nerve t*o let her hair grow out, and be
cause she works on the Oregana.
Annette KelleTman, because of good
form and divers reasons.
Hal Lunberg, because of his sweet
smile, his capacity for choc malts and
because he doesn’t approve of “these
' athletic women.”
Adrienne Hazard, because her poli
tical career hasn’t spoiled her dainty
femininity and because she doesn't ap
prove of secret sorrows.
Amy Lowell, because in spite of the
fact that she wrote poetry and smoked
cigars, she lived to a ripe old age.
Dud Clarke, because he throws good
parties (at the Multnomah hotel), and
because he doesn’t pig a house.steady.
Marilynn Miller, because she mar
ried into the Pickford family and yet
has plenty of kicks coming.
Counting over the nominations for the hand
somest man on the campus, the Seven Seers
find the following names have been dropped
in the ballot boxes, placed in the Journalism
shack, the main Libe, and the Co-op:

BY HEAD OF LIBRARY
Some changes have been an
nounced by Mr. M. H. Douglass for
use in the circulation department.
From' now on, no bound periodicals
are to be taken out of the library,
and all collection slips for over-due
books are to be mailed to the bor
rowers in bill form.
The fact that students appreci
ate the library more each year is
shown by the increasing number of
books taken out.
According to the circulation de
partment of the library, the stu
dents are calling for interesting
books of either the fiction or non
fiction type, and the number of
books on the rental shelf dwindles
to a very few volumes. Some of
the great fiction demands are filled
by “The Emigrants” by John Bo
jer, “Ethan Quest,” “His Saga,”
by Harry Henry, Hugh Walpole’s
“Young Enchanted,” and “Cara
van” by Galsworthy.
