The Dignity of Knowledge
There is a story about Franz Liszt
which relates how, c°nductmg a
orchestra at a concert attended by the
kins, he suddenly stopped the music be
cause the king was talking lo™ily
some friends in the royal box- The au
dience was amazed at the cessation of
music, and, when the orchestra faded to
resume the concert, the king asked Liszt
what the trouble was. The great com
poser replied: “When the king speaks,
the whole wohld must be silent.
Ever convinced of the dignity of art,
Liszt quoted this rule of the court to re
mind the king that there is something,
sacred about music. So, too, there is
something sacred about art, however little
one is able to reconcile the common Amer
ican attitude toward it.
Within the near future the University
is to have a Fine Arts building if the
plans to raise money for its construction
are successful. Intended to be the artistic
and cultural center for the state> the
building will house the valuable Murray
Warner collection of oriental art and lit
erature, the Ada Millikan Indian art col
lection, and others the University pos
seses. The Fine Arts building, an effort
to maintain the dignity and vitality of
art, is a fine project; it will do much to
provide an admirable center for the arts
on this campus, and may prove a stimulus
to creative endeavor in these fields. But
art is not the only field in which oppor
tuntiy for distinction lies.
Mrs. Gertrude Bass Warner, donor of
the oriental art collection, is greatly in
terested in stimulating better relations
between the orient and the United States.
And therein lies a hint.
Situated on the Pacific Coast, Oregon
has an excellent opportunity to become
famous as a center for study of the orient,
its political conditions, its art and its life
in general. In addition to the art collec
tion, the University could start a com
prehensive collection of books pertaining
to the orient. Oregon already has a start
in the books which Mrs. Warner has do
nated in connection with the art works,
but the opportunity lies in a library cov
ering the sociological, historial, economic
and artistic phases of life in oriental
countries. For instance, immigration it
self is a vital topic in America. Think
what prestige would be the University’s
if it could boast today of the finest; li
brary on oriental immigration in the
Harvard has just announced its inten
tion to begin a collection of all material
extant on Russia, the soviets, and bolshe
vism, including original sources. This is
the thing the University of Oregon could
do with the orient. Oriental questions
are of great moment these days, and will
continue to be for probably another cen
tury. What could be more valuable to
western scholarship than such a collec
Money, of course, is a handicap; but,
since the project is in line with the pur
poses of the Fine Arts building and the
ideals of Mrs- Warner, why could not the
promoters of the building campaign use
part of the money raised to start the
library! Then too, the University could
set aside a portion of the regular library
appropriation as a beginning.
California has its Bancroft library of
Harvard is to have it library of Rus
Stanford has it Hoover memorial li
Why should Oregon not have a library
of oriental works!—an effort to maintain
the dignity of knowledge. R.D.L.

| Oregon Trophy Stolen
WEBFOOT BEARSKIN MASCOT IS
CAPTURED BY FIVE V. C. GIRLS
BERKELEY, Oct. 28.—She swiped it! Yes,
sir, she took the bearskin, and nobody is going
to do anything to her because of it, for 9000
odd University of California students stand sol
idly behind her, acclaiming the deed.
No longer will revellers at the University of
Oregon .“bury the bearskin” before the an
nual Oregon ^California football game, as has
been their custom) in former years. Thanks to
the quickness of mind of Miss Zilda Aileen
Newlove, of Santa Maria, University of Cali
fornia junior co-ed, who w»ent to the game
against Oregon in Portland last week, any
future interments of the aforementioned bruin
pelt will be held on the Berkeley campus.
Here is the story of the affray as told by
“I and four other girls drove up to the game
in Portland, and as we passed through the Uni
versity of Oregon campus at Eugene, we saw
a group of boys standing before a newly made
grave, with a nice little headstone and every
thing. We stopped to ask what it was all about,
so one of the boys nicely stepped up to the front
of the machine and told us the entire history of
‘burying the bearskin,’ which was a yearly cere
mony before their game with California. They
hod just performed the annual rite, and there
was the bearskin, drnped over the headstone.
“ We didn’t notice what the other boys were
doing, but we soon found out that while we
had been listening to the boy in front, the others
had unfastened a big teddy bear that we had
on the back of our car. With a loud whoOp
they all ran away, carrying our mascot. We
were alone, there was the bearskin, and they
had stolen our teddy bear. It struck mte that
wo might profit by the exchange, and so I hop
ped out, picked up the bearskin, and hid it in
the back of the car. Then we got out of there
as quickly as possible, and gave it to Donald
Meadows, one of the football managers, to guard
for us until we all got back to Berkeley.”
Meadows admits receipt of the bearskiin, and
tells of having shown it to members of the Cali
fornia varsity football team, but he claims that
he does not know at present the whereabouts of
the outer interguement of the “ursus Oregon
ius” except that it is somewhere on the Berke
ley campus.—Oakland Tribune.

The Seers were greatly pleased, not to say
agreeably surprised, at the results handed in to
the Limerick Contest. Verily, we have many
Sheets and Kelly’s on the campus, who until
now haven’t had the opportunity to express
themselves in rim.^, rithm and all that sort. of
thing. They have us to thank, not only for the
opportunity, i but for the chance at seeing a
good show free, and we hope, sincerely, that
they keep up the good work. As a result ef the
last conetst, the following will be able to eseort
their best friends to see “Bobbed Hair” at the
McDonald Monday or Tuesday:
First Prise: Bobert Jackson, Freshman
There -was a yonng man they called Pug
Who got by on the curves on his mug.
With a smile on his face,
He won the big race,
AND NOW EVERX DAMN’S A PUG-BUG.
Second Prize: Frank Roehr, Senior
NOW HE’S CHARGING $2 PEB HUG.
Third Prise: Marjorie Parker, Freshman
NOW HE’S NEVER AT LOSS FOB A HUG ~
It wias rather difficult for Us to determine
betwefen second and third prizes as there was a
similarity. However, we put ourselves in Pug’s
place and finally decided that the money ele
ment is an important one. Furthermore, as one
of the contestants was a man and the other a
wojphn, we should decide in favor of the man,
for"in t1ie matter Of movie dates, it's ah*»y*
the man who pays.
We further note that the freshmen seem &>.,
be in the lead as far as poetic talent is con
cerned. The contest, which is to be a weekly
feature of the column, will be resumed Wednes
day, when another limerick will be published.

SIDELIGHTS FROM THE SIDELINES
Those fortunate enough to have been present
at that great social function, the Frosh battle
with the Husky Puppies Saturday, noticed that:
The GoBBlings are sure to quack in long-dis
tance passes, and seem to know what “travel”
That Spike Leslie never forgets his old train
ing days even in the most exciting moments of
a game, as far as warming-up exercises are
That Chet Martin evidently has taking ways,
if bis method of tackle can be a judge.
That Bob Gardner and Ray Williams should
make the Frosh team at least on the strength
of their passes.
That all in all Spike’s doing his best to make
a team like that which once gave Harvard^ a
run for its mqney, and that he might succeed.
Just thirty minutes was taken to put out this
column, and although you may declare vehem
ently, “It sounds like it!” you’ll have to admit
that the only thing that’s a faster job would be
a strip-poker contest in the Fiji Islands.
Flivvering can hardly be called an extra-cur
ricular activity, yet it too is coming in for a
lot of blame for low grades and low moral
standards among college students.
Hot battles are being waged at Indiana, Pur
due, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wabash and Illinois
over the attempts to prevent students from
driving cars. At Wabash there is much lament
ing over the attitude taken toward the “batter
ed Ford” which is a tradition on that, campus.

this reason we have made two rules

Mr. William Prendergast, a stu
dent of the local University has re
cently patented a new invention
which is known as a “park meter.”
Its real value is readily seen by
the fact that all one has to do is
to set it before leaving the young
lady’s homte, for as many miles as
will be eonvenent; then when the
proper time has elapsed the car
will automatically come to a dead
stop, thereby avoiding all embar
rassment in asking the young lady
if it is her pleasure to park or ride.
“The invention,” says Bed, “will
revolutionize the gentle art of pig
I was often a bridesmaid but
never a bride. As a salesman I was
inefficient. When I was on a trip
my maid was bashful of reminding
me to take it with I was a
wall flower at one dance after an
other. Even mjy best friends refus
ed to tell me. Oh, the tragedy of
it. After some eternities of men
tal English a child crashed through
with the layman’s name for it.
But did I immediately invest in
Listerine against this insidious
thing (for I was sure it did not
arise from any deep-seated disor
der) 1 No. Just at the time the
words of wisdom came I drifted
into Obak's palacial fountain and
since then I have not been troubled.
