An Invitation To All
Many of us have been tinder the im
pression that membership in the Cosmo-;
politan club is limited to students of for
eign birth. While it is true that one of
its purposes, perhaps its main purpose, is
to form a point of contact between such
students, American students are not
barred from membership. At present,
however, but two students ^bom in this
country are members.
The chief requisite to membership in
the organization is an interest in foreign
and international affairs, and a willing
ness to discuss these problems in a fair
minded manner. The purposes of this
club are most commendable; it would
seen} that in its discussions, where mem
bers from many corners of the globe meet
to exchange opinions, there is an oppor
tunity for American students to get first
hand information on world problems. Vis
itors are welcomed at its open meetings,
we understand, and students of the many
courses that deal with foreign politics,
trade and with the sociological and eco
nomic problems of the world, will find
much of interest in these meetings.
H. A. K.
Concerning Mr. Godfrey’s
Analysis of the communication by
George H. Godfrey published this morn
ing indicates that Mr. Godfrey and the
Emerald, in the main, are in accord.
Mr. Godfrey’s stand is briefly as fol
lows : The press should be allowed to sit
in the entire regents’ meeting. He does
not contend that everything that takes
place in the meeting should be published;
rather only that which is of material ef
fect on the community should he called
to public attention. In other words, onlj
the names of those men who are seri
ouslv being considered for the presidency
should be published- This is precisely
in effect what the Emerald contended:
“The question of newspaper publicity has
been u stickler all the Way along. The regents
realize that the selection of a president is pub
lie business, yet. they also realize their obli
gation to the candidates, many of whom re
quested to have the matter kept strictly eon
fidential. lhi^licity might easily jeopardize
many of theme men in their own positions, and
the expectation of premature public serutin\
might prohibit many others from considering
“The last stage of selection qf a president is
somewhat of a different matter. When the final
two or three candidates have been chosen—as
in the ease of Colonel Pay—it seems only reas
onable that the students, the faculty, and tho
people of the state at largo should bo taken
into the confidence of the regents.
Tn other words, the Emerald and Mr.
Godfrey both believe that only the names
of those men who are very seriously
being considered should be made public.
The Emerald said nothing about the pro
cedure in this matter (as to the admitting
or excluding the press) but confined it
self to the probable results of the general
situation. If the press is willing to keep
the confidence of the regents in these
maters where private rights as well as
public interests are involved and where
the ultimate public interest would be
Mr. Godfrey and the Emerald are in
disagreement as to the treatment to be
accorded presidential candidates. Mr.
Godfrey believed it tin- duty of the news
paper to give the public the reasons for
the candidate’s rejection. The Emerald
prefers to believe, in the ease of Col. Day,
for instance, that it would have been
kinder to release merely an announce
ment that Colonel Day, in effect, was not
the men desired for the position. Colonel
Day was an invited guest of the Univer
sity while on the Pacific Coast and as
such was entitled to more than a little
The newspapers, as Mr. Godfrey infers,
were not responsible for the condition
which is existing at the present time. As
the Emerald said, Col. Day “was the vic
tim of unfortunate circumstances,” which
resulted, in the newspapers if not being
“primed” at least being “prepared ”

G. H. Godfrey Disagrees ] <
Under the caption, “Regents Welcome Faeul- '
ty Aid in Selecting President,” in the Emer
ald of November 4 the editor has mpde state- 1
ments that show plainly he is not aware of the
true facts of the matter wherewith he dealt.
“It is unfortunate that such brilliant publi
city was focused on Col. Day, who as the victim
of circumstances,” says the Emerald. “The
newspaper of the state w'ere all primed for
regents because of last year’s press exclusion
at the regents meeting.”
This is an error of fact. The newspapers
were not “primed” in any sense of the word.
Only four of them were represented at the
meeting, The Orogjonian, Journal, Telegram,
and Eugene Guard. Of the four reporters only
one had attended a previous meeting, and not
one was antagonistic toward the board. Colonel
Day was the center of attention, was the only
candidate being considered, and all the press
reporters felt that tho reasons for his rejection
Should bo made public. These were not unduly
emphasized, and in no instance were they even
published in full. The reasons given were that
Col. Day was a Canadian citizen^and therefore
not entitled to hold the position, that he did
not impress tho faculty and students with his
executive ability, ho was not a good speaker,
was educated abroad, and that he did not have
the western viewpoint.
Publication of these reasons, which in this
case apply to Col. Day only in relation to the
position at Oregon, could not be held harmful,
since all were plain, uncolored facts. Further
more, in not a single instance could the public
knowledge of these facts injure Col. Day in
relation to his other work, or prospects for
The editor of the Emerald takes the same
viewpoint toward the press that some of the
regents did, that the press is something to bo
feared and not trusted. Governor Pierce was
outspoken in this matter. He said, “I be
lieve the press should be admitted to all meet
ings, and I am sure that they will publish
nothing that will be harmful if wo trust them.
1 f we do not repose this trust in them, then
they are at liberty to print any information
they can obtain, and we can say nothing against
It is very significant that the vote for press
exclusion at the recent meeting stood six to
five, and another regent tho chairman who
could not vote, stood for the press.

TODAY’S LITTLE FABLE
And so it came to pass that one of the
nightie men of the lande called Oregonne did
fynde his coate gonne, wjien he didst return
from his labors on tha gridyron. ..Bihte furiously
lid he cast aboute until his hande fell upon what
is called in the compion parlance a sweate or
prespiration shyrte. ..Hastily did he doone it,
for he had a,datte with one of the faire systers
Df Bamma Phi Geta, who was famous# in that
lande for exceeding fullnesse of temper, the like
of wjiich had never been seene or hearde of.
The people of that lande, seeing their cham
pione thus attired, didst haste to so apparel
themselves, so that there was great rejoicing in
the hearts of the vendores of tennis racquettes,
golfe stickes and sporting goodes, and many
didst sighe after the shyrte for sweatteing. And
thanks was offered up in great profusion that
the mightie man didst not lose his trouSerres.

Herewith is the opening argument of the de
bate to be Tefereed by the Seers, on^the ques
tion: “Resolved, That the Equine is of More
Benefit to Humtanity and College Students Than
the Bovine.” , . _ .
Today Absolom Perkins, the Punkin Center
flash, presents his first argument for the affir
mative. Absolom is noted for his footwork and
potatotes. Tomorrow Hiram Qorncrueller, pride
of Corvallis, will introduce the negative side of
the question. Draw up your chair and sit down.
Ladies, Gentlemen and Frosh:
Yew-all no that the horse'and the jackass his
neer relation, liev alius bin the highest animules
in the eyes of man. Nobuddy likes to walk
wSlin there is a plug within climbing distance.
The nobull horse hes alius bin the herow of the
co eds at Oregon who fergot there bisjckles or
roller skates when out with the boy frend.
Speeking of herose, whoever herd of an
awthur who used a cow fer his herose’s
mount? Did yew ever read: “The hansome
bandit road upp on his firey steed, a pranc
ing coleblack cow?” It it wuz not fer the
nobull equine there wud be no m,oore mov
ing pictshure cereals, and Zane Grey’s he
rose wud all he walking the desert.
The horse also has another use. The Collige
of Noted Dames wud off had to call their herose
“The Four Cowmen of the Epiletic,” or whut
ever name came handy to them.
Now, let’s see that there Corvallis cake-eater
beat these here points. ..Till next time.
Thus ends Absolom Perkin’s first brief. Watch
tomorrow for the rebuttal.

Hello, old dear! More darn
fun, and more money spent. Went
ear riding last Saturday with
someone nice. We stopped by a
big fir'tree, and the boys pro
duced a big jug, but it was only
cider. We also had doughnuts,
pumpkin pie, and big red apples.
Who’d dream those men were so
thoughtful* I saw the wrap
pings, and of course they had
bought the things at Underwood
and Elliott’s, where all the
houses get their eats.
Stopped at The Cupboard, in
charge of Dorris and Smith,
which is located at the Leven
Oak Service Station, to get some
things for our feed. Made me
think of a new version of the
Old Mother Hubbard
She went to the cupboard,
To get her poor dog a bone.
But when she got there,
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor dog got none.
This is the modern way:
Madame de Hubbard
She went to “The Cupboard,”
To get her dear hubby a snack.
And when she got there, so well
Did she fare, that she took
Most the whole Cupboard back.

informal dance this week-end, so

great yellow ones for the big

Heard three of the very big
gest song hits at the Eugene
Music Shop yesterday; every
one’s dippy about ’em. One was
“Waitin’ for the Moon,” an Ir

how good it must be. Then there
was one of those fascinating'iblue
songs — a fox trot — called
“Mighty Blue.” Also they play
ed the new “Three O’clock in the
Morning Song” for me, only it’s
called “The Midnight Waltz.”
Wouldn’t I love to dance it with
my secret sorrow?

Frank Loggan simply raved to
nye about the classy boyish bob
he saw coming out of The Co-ed
Barber Shop, next to the Co-op.
I didn’t know he was an admirer
of the masculine type, did you?
However, those barbers do give
wonderful cuts, in any style you
like, and it is always so conven
ient to go there. There goes the
bell for class. So long.
