Putting the Girls Where They Belong;
A Matter of Good Sense and Economy
With all the seriousness of a Punch and Judy show, Mrs.
Irene Gerlinger, University regent, advocates, in reply to the
suggestion that 0. A. C. and Oregon be united under one head,
that a single plant be operated under a 24-hour day, with three
eight-hour shifts, the first shift to be called the normal school,
the second the college, and the third the university. As the
president of any institution faces a 24-hour task anyway, that
would not interfere with the plan. This, says Mrs. Gerlinger,
would be the ideal solution, provided a paid board of three
members of the prevailing political party be substituted for a
president, since running school affairs is like running a farm
or a home, and really doesn’t take any fitness or preparation,
being simply a matter of inspiration.
Such economies! Where on earth did she get such funny
ideas? We quite agree that the traveling board of politicians
would be a wonderful substitute for a president; in fact, we
are rather selfishly chagrined that Mrs. Gerlinger thought of
the idea before we did. But as for the rest of her proposition—
that pertaining to the establishing of a three-shift day—we
think the idea is all wrong, to say the least.
The Emerald has figured out a much more feasible, and,
we believe, more intelligent solution for this lamentable situa
tion (as affairs now stand) than the one our regent presented.
The main point in favor of our solution is that it will be highly
popular with all the college and university folk of the state,
whereas Mrs. Gerlinger’s wouldn’t get by even a little bit.
The Emerald solution, given with the hope of bringing about
the desired ends of more economy and more polities and less
scholarship is as follows, to wit:
(1) For a president of Oregon colleges and universities estab
lish a board of three paid politicians. (Apologies and thanks
to Mrs. I. LI. G.)
(2) (The Emerald’s own idea) Establish two great state
colleges, putting all the women from Oregon Normal, Oregon
[Agricultural College, and the University of Oregon, at the pres
ent O. A. C. campus, and all men from the above three institu
tions at the present University.
As soon as the big idea is grasped—women at O. A. C. and
men at Oregon—the multitudinous advantages from the propo
sition literally benumb one with their magnificence.
First of all, consider the marvelous football team next year
with Jones and Schulmerich playing together. We wouldn’t
even need a coach and with the money saved could establish a
free student bus service between Corvallis and Eugene.
The saving in clothing and entertainment would be most
ponderous. The men would wear overalls, and the women bon
nets and aprons. Gone would be the golf knickers and the mar
cels with the accompanying costs; and great would be the re
joicing in the hearts of the fathers and mothers to see the ap
peai'anee of the blue denim.
Another important item would be to get all the girls en
rolled in the home economics department at 0. A. C. Girls are
naturally fitted for that sort of thing, in fact, very few are able
to do anything more complicated than housework. Therefore,
to put them in their own element would be the kindest thing
the legislature could possibly do.
Getting the ag. department at Eugene would be a great ad
vantage to the Eugene Chamber of Commerce, as everyone
knows that Eugene soil is better than that of Corvallis, and a
removal of the experiment stations to the land of oil wells would
merely substantiate the truth.
Last, but not least, this action would decrease the divorce
rate in Oregon, since there would be fewer marriages.
Of course the single difficulty that presents itself in this
proposition is that the wear and tear on the pavement between
Corvallis and Eugene would be quite severe. But since the
State Highway Commission has to worry about that, we won’t
mention it to the taxpayers.
By this time Mrs. Gerlingcr will have realized her error.
We shall be pleased to print a statement of liei' unqualified ap
proval of our plan whenever she finds it convenient to drop
us a card.
