An Open Letter to
Colonel John Leader
Dear Colonel:
We were mighty glad to receive your
letter- Of course, we were grieved to
hear of your head-cracking trip, but as
long as you are safe in the hands of the
Bobbies and the Reds we know' all will
be well. We hasten to assure you that
you are still the Emerald’s foreign cor
respondent and that you did very well in
your first dispatch. We shall anticipate
with pleasure further special news notes
from you.
• • • •
By the bye, Colonel, have you seen Colin and
Mrs. Pymeut any place over there? They are
loose with only a couple of bicycles and we
are wondering how they are getting along. If
you see them, tell them, to come home, or at
least drop us a card.
• • • •
You say England is frankly Red. Well
you haven’t anything on us. We are
Red and Blue and Green and Yellow and
Pink and all the rest of the pigments per
sonified. It’s the thing nowadays to be
deck yourself in brilliant colors; and he
who doesn’t put himself in a screaming
slicker or flaming “sweate or prespira
tion shyrte, ’ ’ as the Seers say, is sadly out
of things. At the moment I have on a
white “shyrte” but shall have it dyed red
this week end. With my new Stetson
flat-topped sombrero which the Seniors
have recently adopted, I’m sure I shall be
quite irresistible and quite broke.
• • • •
To tell the truth, Colonel, wo’ve been bo busy
with Stetsons anti Frosh presidents and football
and the rest of it that wo haven’t had time to
w*orry about trifles like unemployment in Eng
land or moral degradation of which you speak;
in fact we haven’t even realized that the fall
term is precisely one-half over.
* • * •
Speaking of moral degradation—next
week-end is Homecoming. From all that
we can gather, it’s going to be a grand
celebration. .Tames Leake is chairman
of the affair. Under his direction several
new features are being introduced, amiong
them a pajamrine parade with brilliant
torches and green and yellow pajamas.
He who doesn’t own a lemon-yellow noc
turnal dress suit is going to feel as lone
some as the person with the sweate
# * # •
The slogan this year is “Back—to Back our
Oregon,” but I’ve heard fraternity people say
that it would bo more truthful if it had been,
“Back to Back—Our Oregon.”
# * * •
Dope has it that 0. A. C. is going to
take the Homecoming game. However,
I’m not worrying about any dope on that
game, and 1 'in of the opinion that Ore
gon will carry off the honors. We’re
dreadfully sorry you can’t be with us
this year, Colonel. There’s going to be
a huge crowd on hand- We have a fine
new' grandstand, you know.
# ‘ * I
And mention of the “new” reminds me of the I
Frosh. Certainly they are a very- presentable
group of young people, although I believe the
new men have the edge over the first year ladies
in that respect.
• • • »
But l must cease. Thanks again for
the letter, Colonel, and pardon the ex
travagant rambling. I’ll try to be a bit
more profound next time.
^ ___-o
From Colonel Leader
3, Whitehall Place,
London, S. W. 1.
23rd October, 1925.
The Editor
“The Emerald.”
Dear Sir: „
Yesterday I received the first number of the
“Emerald” which acted on me like a ray ot
sunshine on a murky day. I give my perman
ent address above, for the benefit of Oregonians
who propose coming next year to this island ot
mist. It is recalled to my mind that some years
ago Art Rudd created me foreign correspondent
of the “Emerald” so I will endeavor to resume
my painfully neglected duties.
We had rather a hectic journey back to Eng
land. Near Ottawa the Trans-Canada Express,
doing sixty miles an hour, hit another train
face on, in the grey dawn, and as my head re
bounded from my drawing room partition the
first words I heard were those of my Oregonian
son, now aged three, who betrayed his low
origin by ejaculating, “I’ve cracked my G—
D— Cocoanut” (I am trusting to the Editor to
put this in more lady-like language). My three
sons are now being trained in the three elemen
tary duties of our caste, viz., fox-hunting, fish
ing, and shooting. My eldest son started his
shooting career well by getting his grandmother
and one of the gardners with a right and left;
however, neither were clean kills and apparently
he badly frightened the pheasant he fired at,
so all was well.
* * * »
I have not yet got over the reverence that
everyone coming first to England acquires, for
the London policeman, affectionately known as
the “Bobby.” He is quite the most efficient
thing in the world and I reckon that the Al
mighty made him in his image. In my kaleido
scopic career the most efficient classes of men
I have ever served with were the cowpunchers
of the West, the “Red Riders” of Canada, and
the British subaltern, but all those are efficient
in a tight place, the London Bobby is always
efficient—even in his sleep, I guess.
England is now most frankly Bed and bodies
of British Fascisti are forming everywhere. I
dined recently with two members of our Govern
ment and told them that when I was in the
Government I proposed adopting Napoleon’s
idea that ‘‘the only cure for Radicalism was a
whiff of grape-shot.” They asked mo what I
would suggest at prosent, (or perhaps I volun
teered the information) first, that we should
ask tho U. 8. A. to administer us as a Territory
until we were fit to govern ourselves or sec
ondly, that wq should lot Italy off her war debt
on •condition they let us have Mussolini as dic
tator of England for a year. Neither of my
suggestions were received with enthusiasm. No
body wants to work, as out-of-work doles are
paid up to 5f> shillings, equivalent to about 30
dollars in America, and as the ordinary wage
is only a dollar a week more, England may now
be called a Loafer’s Paradise. Education is now
costing England over $400,00,0,0,00 dollars a
year and it is a regrettable fact that this coun
try, the mother of mass education, is beginning
to more and more to realize that mass education
instead of fructifying the desert has only over
whelmed the oases.
To a student of history, especially that of the
decline of great empires, the most distressing
sign of all is the growth of “Intelligentsia”
clubs at the Universities. They are popularly
and very suitably known as “Offal” clubs, and
are composed of young men whoso mental level
is one attained about 35 years ago, and whose
physical standard one hopes not to sink to—
about 35 years hence. Here callow “Cogno
scenti” gather together and discuss the Red rub
bish of Marx and Rousseau and Voltaire, tho
heavy platitudes of old Plato, the sour atheism
of Anatolc France and the frank sewerage of
the discredited Freud and the equally uninform
ed Dreissler and Dostoivsky, writers \^ho pour
their inky souls on paper with tho exultant ges
tures of an exuding cuttlefish. In an age which
stands out as the most brilliant in the world's
history for contemporary literature the main
modern fiction read by our youth are writers
of the Arlen school portraying the degradation
of immoral and neurotic but otherwise uninter

W. & 0., Pullman, Wash., Nov. 5, 1925.—
Because of the cold weather many profes
sors are permitting students to scratch dur
ing class hours this week. Howlever, it must
be understood that this little favor will
cease as soon as the students becomes accus
tomed to their red flannels.
Ladies, Gentlemen, and Faculty Members:
I red my unworthy opponent’s speach, which
he rote in to the Seers, and I think he has a
small mined or something, or he wud not so
disgrace the nobull cow but compareing the
same with the equine. He sed the hoarse Was
the herow .of Oregon. Maybe so, but the cow
is not only the national sherow of O. A. C., but
if it had not bin for this most nobullest of ani
inules, the grate institushun of O. A. C. wud
never have bin found. There wud have bin
nothing for the stewdents to do.
Mr. rivall spoak abqut the use of tjie
hoarse at Oregon. Over at O. A. C. the fel
lers do with a cow what none of yew cain’t
do with yure old hayburner. They milk
their cow bofour brekfast, and then ride her
to wurk. They wurk her all day, ride her
home, and then milk her again. When she
gits two old fer this, they kill her, and sell
the meat to the hamburger joint fer more
kale than they give fer her in the furst
place. When yew git a hoarse that yew kin
do all this with. I’ll buy a couple or so.
My opposer cast reflcckshuns on the name
Cowmen. What name cud be niser? I doant
think he ever gazzed into the soft brown eyes
of the bewtifull Holstine, or herd the mclodius
voice of the Guernsey heffer. He cud not, and
tak the side that he has.
Hoping to win, I shall rest till next week.

So wo took tho fifty thousand bottles

esting young women. Hughes, the Australian
premier once said to me that “Maggots only
hurt a moribund body, a healthy body can throw
them off”—what England needs now is a bit
more of the “Mill-Race” spirit of dealing with
decadents. If Bob Mautz was not handicapped
by a clean mind, he could buy cheap translations
of these alleged classics and easily acquire the
jargon of complexes and reactions, but I never
met an “Intelligentsia” yet with brains enough
to captain a football team. Arthur Rosebrough
is spending next week-end with me.
Yours optimistically,
