A Splendid Half Hour
Perhaps the most deeply appreciated of new University
functions inaugurated in the past several years are the Sunday
Vespers given this year for the first time on the campus. In
accordance with a wish of the late President Campbell, the ves
pers have been brought from the city churches to the Music
building within the bounds of the campus where every Sunday
those who wish may spend a reverent half hour.
University education, perhaps by necessity, is lopsided. In
tellectual attainments are stressed to the utmost, while spiritual
education is relatively neglected; and one who wishes to culti
vate his religious sensibilities must seek elsewhere.
The Sunday Vespers have placed a shrine in the midst of
the University. There a student, irrespective of creed or faith,
may find a relief from the hurry and the bustle of week-day
life and will, in small measure, find a means to quench the
drought caused by our all too incessant intellectual stimulus.
Next Sunday, because two hundred people were tunied away
from St. Cecilia Mass, given a week ago, the Mass will be re
peated. Those who attend will be rewarded by a service that is
beautiful and inspiring.
Red Grange Cashes In;
Will Pro Football Last?
Poor old Red Grange! Had to carry ice all last summer and
the summer before last. Now he suffers to the extent of one
half million dollars profit in one week.
A triumph of publicity. And, says Professor Howe, more
harm done to amateur football than ever before at the hands of
In professional football close followers of the game sec its
roots extending into the • e-r/'tc.ir. game, sapping the college
players before they have graduated or finished their seasons,
is it not reasonable to believe that Red Granges of the future
will be approached with tremendous financial offers while they
are still playing for the Alma Mater?
College football depends upon the extreme partisanship of
the players for the popularity of the games. Spectators for
the most part are students, alumni, or others with a vital inter
est in the outcome, and a football game, with personal interest,
is dull. Grange’s first game in New York, says Lawrence Perry,
authority on sports, was a complete flop except when Grange
was carrying the ball.
If professional football stays, it will always be a menace to
college football. If it goes, the sooner the better.
The success of the recently completed do-nut basketball
schedule, staged without reward, has demonstrated, as the phy
sical education department has contended for some time, that
intra-mural sports can be conducted with good results without
offering trophies for the winners. In the words of Pug loole,
well-known donutter, “1 never had so much fun in my life as
I did playing donut basketball.” The physical education de
partment should take the hint and prepare to expand the sys
tem as fast as practicable. In baseball, for instance, we should
have several leagues. A donut program is successful if it gets
most of the scrubs into some sort of physical activity. If eom
pai'atively few men are engaged, the program approaches

Sitibad spent a quiet day at home
yesterday, surrounded by condoling
friends, who sorrowfully wiped his
perspiring brow and listened to his
“Oh boys,”.he said upon one oc
casion, “you should see the darling
rings they have at Littleworth’S,
and so cheap, too. And I saw the
cutest little pair of size 1114 cotton
socks at the Penny Grabber Store,
the nation-wide institution, you
know. Hand me a drink from that
Maime M. and Killem bottle of boot
leg, will you?”
Miss the Co-ed, this morning re
luctantly admitted that the myster

to occasionally to her friend Anne
in her weekly letters is Sinbad. “I
think he is wonderful,” she said.

sled With the bright and gleam

tain professor who upon reading
our masterly presentation of a
book and three learned friend’s
opinions in a term paper,
caustically remarked: “Your
rhetoric is very fine, but wliero
are your facts.”
And in those dayes at Oregonne,
there arose great lamento amongst
the cobblerrcs of the lande. And
they said, “Beliolde, the co-edde and
the edde, they do wear their shoes
undulie longe, and no longer are our
cares filled with the sweete patter
of the honnnere upon the awl. Be
holde, the edde who ridetli in his
flivvere, and the co-edde, who doth
ride beside—are they not liftinge
the very gasoline out of our tanks.
Then arose from among them a
wise man, one renowned for his wis
domme and his liomebrewe, who
spake thus: “Have you not heard of
the Charlietonne, and how it does
exercise the endurance and at the
same time is exceeding hard on the
soles. Let us go abroad and spread
about the report of this thinge.”
And the wise man Was acclaimed
great, and tho cobblerres went
But the people of Oregonne,
awearied from winning moral vic
tories and reckoning the dayes until
Yuletido, did pay no heed. Then
went the wise man to the loaders of
tho amazonnc tribes of the lande
and said; “Forbiddo you this thinge,
which cometli upon you like a pesti
lence. Beholde. is it not disgust
ing?” And the Amazonnes did say,
And so they did gather together
and issue a banne upon the Charlie
tonne. Then was there much twist
ing and turning in the lande, and
throwcing of the feet hither and
yonne, and many were the soles that
did suffer therefrom. And the ham
mer upon the awle, did make a
musick sweets upon the cobblerre’s
earres, and they did ride in ease,
yea in Packardes.

DEAR SANDY CLAWS:
X believe there are fairies and an
Oregon Spirit, so please don’t pull
any more of your jokers on me. I
want a good, serviceable, triple
plated, rust-proof coach with a ten
year guarantee and a self-starter.
Last year I got Dick Smith. The
sample was pretty good, so please
send along the rest. The man I have
in mind may eat with his knife,
think that “demi-tasse” is a medi
tative cuss word, but must think
that “moral victory” is the charac
teristic croak of the dodo perched
on the gypsus tree. If you have
anyone in- stock anything like that
who looks as if he knew what to do
with $10,000 a year, send him along,

Those of you who still retain an
appreciation of a go do show, such as
will he shown at the McDonald next
Monday and Tuesday, are advised to
drop your limericks in the Libe as
early as possible today. The pre
examination preoccupation should
limit the competition, and you have
a reasonable, manageable limerick
to work with this week.
