Regents Welcome Faculty Aid
In Selecting President
The rejection of Col. Frank Day by
the board of regents last Saturday has
invited questions as to the probable iden
tity of the future University president,
the merits on which he is to be chosen,
how he is to be chosen, and how long
before the selection will be made. To
answer all these queries definitely at this
time would be impossible- although more
or less light may be thrown on several
aspects of the situation.
In the first place, the probable identity
of the future president, as near aa can
be ascertained, is known to no one. A
statement in practically all the news
papers of Portland, Eugene, including the
Emerald, and in press dispatches, asserted
that the field has been narrowed to nine
men. This statement was an error of
fact. The quest for the candidates is still
going on, with no few men definitely
selected for final consideration.
It has been unfortunate that such
brilliant publicity was focused on Col.
Day, wrho was the victim, of circum
stances. The newspapers of the state were
all ‘primed’ for the regents because of
last year’s press exclusion at the regents
meeting, and when they found Col. Day
was under consideration by the regents
they turned forth all their guns, evidently
wishing to make up for lost time, play
ing up the reasons for his rejection when
a mere notice i to that effect might have
served as well. As a result it is doubtful
whether or not other educators will come
to tlje University and the state to suffer
themselves to be thus “picked to pieces.”
The question of newspaper publicity
has been a stickler all the way along.
The regents realize that the selection of
a president is public business, yet they
also realize their obligation to' the candi
dates, many of whom requested to have
the matter kept strictly confidential.
Publicity might easily jeopardize many
of these men in their own positions, and
the expectation of premature public
Scrutiny might prohibit many others
from considering the position.
The last stage «,f selection of a presi
dent is somewhat of a different matter.
When the final two or three candidates
have been chosen—as in the case of
Colonel Day—it seems only reasonable
that the students, the faculty, and the
people of the state at large should be
taken into the confidence of the regents.
Final selection of the president may
be made within a few months, or it may
take a year or two. It is possible that a
man might be chosen, who, because of
present obligations, could not accept the
position for a year or two.
It is worthy of note that the advisory
committee of the faculty is working
actively under the regents in the presi
dential selection. The regents have shown
every willingness to allow the University
faculty through this committee, to express
their wishes and desires and for the past
several months this committee has been
engaged in the active business of inves
tigation. The regents realize the mem
bers of the faculty, engaged for years in
educational work, have a most valuable
knowledge of educational leaders and
personalities that can be capitalized by
the board. Futhqrmore, the regents real
ize that the president, once chosen will
starts best with the cordial support of
In reference to the hint given by
Mrs. Irene Gerlinger that the deans wish
to delay the selection of the president,
the Emerald ventures to assert that the
officials now in charge of administrative
affairs would be willing and anxious to
turn over the affairs of the University to
a new president and that members of the
administrative committee are each and j
every one looking forward to the moment
when the president relieves their burdens.
The present arrangement, with respon
sibility divided, is quite satisfactory as
long as the present situation exists; but
everyone realizes that as long as a new
president is to be chosen, the quicker the
Just what part thp students are to
play in the selection is difficult to state
at this time. The regents and the faculty
seem to be of the opinion that the stu
dents could offer little assistance in the
first stages of selection, and have ex
pressed the belief that personal contact
would probably afford the only means
for students to take part in the selection.
It is now known that many students were
asked their opinion of Colonel Day by
various members of the faculty, and that
the concensus was in turn communicated
lo the board of regents. If various candi
dates could be induced to come to the
campus, the students would undoubtedly
have an opportunity to express their
In the mean time, students and others
have the right and the obligation to ex
press their opinions as to the type of
executive they wish- The regents will
give heed to these suggestions because it
is imperative that the new executive shall
find favor with students, faculty and Cie
citizens at large in the state. . . . Verily,
the order before the regents is a large

Baseball has been sailed “The Groat Ameri
can Game,” but football’s popularity has in
creased by such leaps and bounds in the last
few years that the correctness of that statement
can be challenged. With the possible exception
of the professional soccer clashes in England,
no other game attracts such immense crowds as
The Yale Bowl, one of the first of the large
stadiums, will soon bo surpassed by many other
college gridirons. Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh
are laying plans for stadiums with a capacity
of 100,000. Several Big Ten universities are
erecting enormous fields to afford seating room
for the ever increasing hordes of football en
Yale will prbably fill its Bowl three times
this year, and will turn away as many people as
secure admittance. California and Stanford can
not begin to satisfy the demand for pasteboards
for the annual big game. It is estimated that
05,000 people saw the Cards and Boars fight to
a 20 to 20 tie in the California Memorial Sta
dium last year.
oBaseball's record attendance falls far’short
of this mark. The world series of 1023, which
attracted the largest ctowds in the history of
baseball, did not gather more than 65,000 per
sons at a single game. A dozen major football
contests during the year boat this record. At
no game in the past series did Pittsburgh and
Washington play before more than 48,000 fans.
And on top of this comes the announcement
that the big leagues have decided to condense
their schedules so that it will be possible to
complete the world series before the football
season gets under way. A plain admission that
football has superceded the diamond sport in
the eyes of the public.—Daily Palo Alto.

Glancing through the pages of the latest cops
of Old Oregon we see that Ed Miller has entered
the field of playwriting by bursting forth with
a doleful little drama on a future campus
magazine. Further on we notice an article
that tells of an invention in basketball shoes
by our coach, Billy Reinhart. How now, but
we have versatility amongst us! Perhaps the
next will be that Rex Underwood will challenge
the boxing realm for world championship, and
Walter Malcolm might even announce his plane
to make a nation-wide tour in ballet dancing.

When yon eat at the Oregana
you even have a safer bet
You can’t go wrong.
TF your hair lacks natural gloss
I and lustre, or is difficult to
keep in place, it is very easy to
give it that rich, glpssy, refined
and orderly appearance, so essen
tial to well-groomed men.
Just rub a little Glostora
through your hair once or twice
a week,—or after shampooing,and
your hair will then stay, each day,
just as you comb it.
Glostora softens the hair and
makes it pliable. Then, even stub
born hair will stay in place of its
own accord. • .v
It gives your hair that natural,
rich, well-groomed effect, instead
of leaving it stiff and artificial
looking as waxy pastes and creams
do. Glostora also keeps the scalp
soft, and the hair healthy by re
storing the natural oils from which
the hair derives its health, life,
gloss and lustre.
Try it! See how easy it is 'to
keep your hair combed any style
you like, whether brushed lightly
or combed down flat.
If you want your hair to lie
down particularly smooth and
tight, after applying Glostora,
simply moisten your hair with
water before brushing it.
A large bottle of Glostora costs
but a trifle at any drug store.
