The Emerald’s Iheory
Of Campus Dramatic Criticism
'With the Guild Hall season formally opened the dramatic
critic has again made his appearance; and if the precedent of
former years is followed, the Emerald will shortly he the target
of more “panning” and criticism than the plays which prompt
ed the initial discussion.
Those who were on the campus last year, and the year be
fore will recall the wrath, anguish, consternation, surprise and
agony caused by "the frank and sincere comments of the erst
while Emerald critic, Mr. Leon K. Byrne, now of the Portland
Oregonian. The pungent outbursts from the. gifted pen ot Mr.
Byrne were certain to be followed by everyone interested m
dramatics, and were equally certain of stimulating definite re
actions in the minds of his readers. A critic that can make
these reactions boil and bubble as did Mr. Byrne, has accom
plished much of his purpose and filled a large portion of his
obligations. , , r ,
Criticism of college plays presents a most perplexing piou
lem The players offer their work for public approval or cen
sure and in doing so by the very nature of their work recom
mend themselves to the eye and the voice of the critic; and
hence cannot be offended if their efforts are not given unstmteu
IH * Yet who would say that collegian players should he judged
against the standards of the professional world? No one would
condemn a moot court lawyer because he failed to attain the
eloquence of Clarence Harrow; an art student because lie could
not carve an army on a mountain side; or censure the college
paper because it had not the solidity of the New York Times.
In any criticism fair standards must he allowed.
In contrast to severe “panning” is the extreme of unadul
terated applesauce, save for the flavoring of sugar and honey.
This saccharine tvpc of criticism is too often seen and lias no
value other than to tickle the vanity of the players against
their own common sense.
The problem of the college critic—and this applies to drama
and music—is, first, to recognize the need for student encour
agement, rather than mere negative comment; second, to strike
the happy medium where he sets a high standard for University
productions, and proceeds to demonstrate where the actors, in
his opinion, have or have not attained the expected heights.
Finally it should be kept always in mind that a criticism
is the result of but one person’s impressions. And while the
Emerald makes an effort to secure competent persons to write
criticisms it should always he considered that the words of the
critic, who iias free reign to say what he pleases, do1 not neces
s»rilv i:upvoci»u( the opinions of the Emerald, the student body,
or those’ who attended the production. The critic’s review
gives the opinions of hut one person—the critic.
An Opinion Concerning
Women should not smoke. The habit is dirty, expensive,
unhealthful and unnatural. Men do not like to see women
Men should not smoke. The habit is dirty, expensive, un
healthful and unnatural. Women like to see men smoke, lias
not Billie Burke, beloved of all theatre goers, said—“I love to
see a man smoke a pipe? ’
That seems to be about the size of the smoking question re
eently brought into publie dismission by the notion of Bryn
Mawr eollege authorities in providing smoking-rooms for the
girls. Many are holding up their palms in holy horror, inelud
ing several of the smaller universities in Oregon who promptly
east out any females caught with the filthy weed.
Most everyone will agree that smoking is a bad habit. Older
university men discourage the younger ones from taking up
the habit. But so is eating hot mince pie a la mode at two a. m.
a bad habit, and still wo do it.
“But why do they do it?" the men ask. Then they go on
to say the women have a perfect right 1o smoke, but would
rather their own particular girl did not indulge. Marcellos and
silk stockings, they say, belong to women, and smoking and
trousers belong to men.
Women as a species have the right to smoke. But the indi
vidual man. who prefers to think that his own woman embodies
and personifies the perfection of nature, cannot see how she is
improved hv putting a young bonfire in her mouth. Be it
added that most women are not graceful in their smoking. I
Furthermore, for the most part, women take up the habit not
because it is womanly, hut because it is naughty. And finally,
it demonstrates a tendency to affectation which is laudable m
Girls, the sermon is concluded.

PROMINENT CAMPUS COUPLE
(Oregon Daily Emerald
Dec. 9, 1925)
In plain sight of her many
friends and several Eugene
merchants, Carol, the Co-ed
made known her intentions of
wedding with Sinbad, local
heart-breaker and member of
the famous organization, the
Seven Seers. The newts came
as a complete surmise to the
campus, and has been the topic
of general consternation among
both the high and the low. Miss
the Co-ed is a very charring,
sifted and expensive young lady,
and has commended much at
tention by her weekly distorta
tions on what’s going on in the
shops in the Emerald. The dec
orations were gas-house green
and freezia, and refreshments
were served on the hostess.
When Sinbad passed the cigars,
he was heard to say, “I know
nothing about it whatsoever,”
but it is rumored that he has
reformed much of late.
As yet no one has made any
dates for the wedding, but Miss
the Co-ed will wear a going
away suite of airedale and
Towel de Joy.
“The Louder the Suitcase
Gurgles, the Larger the Tip.”
PEAR SANDY CLAWS:
We Phi Pelts have been'grabbing
all the publieitv lately, but it' I can
just get this letter through the Em
erald I don’t care about the rest.
Now I've played hard all year, and
I don’t want any reward for it when
you come to fill my socks except a
good strong pair of overalls like 1
used to wear in high school, so if I
hear any more of this here mud
slinging about coaches and teams
and presidents I can get right out
and use a shovel.
Also, these darn women make me
sick, but could you please stick a
jar of blush remover in the toe of
my socle, as it would come in

Sped up the Butte,
A curve up there was sharp,
The car upset,
He’s rolling yet,
She’s playing on a harp.
THE PRIZE WINNER
This half of a perfectly good
pair of skates we got at a good
bargain at the annual fire sale
of Engine House No. 4, E. F. D.
last week. In spite of the fact
that We got it at such a reduc
tion, and although it is quite a
cheap skate, we believe it is a
very elaborate gift to present
to the man who borrowed our
slicker to wear on a heavy date
and called us up last night to
tell us that the reason he hadn’t
returned it before is because he
had grown so attached to it, but
that he’ll be sure and see that
we get it in time to take it home
with us before the holidays..
