Giving the Public the Facts
Concerning University Business
Shortly after the election of Captain McEwan and the sub
sequent announcement of his $8,500 salary, numerous objections
were heard throughout the state, various taxpayers maintain
ing that the salary was exorbitant and unwarranted. In due
time an explanation was made, pointing out that the associated
students and not the taxpayers were bearing the burden. Since
that time no objection has been heard; rather, the state papers
tiave hastened to clear up the situation. Among these is the
Astoria Budget, which points out that the. situation is the result
of a tremendous interest in inter-collegiate sports, winch in
turn, forces up the salaries of coaches. Says the Budget, m
part: . ,
“However, the taxpayers need not become exercised_ over
this high cost, and Mr. Durbin of Salem would not have inter
preted the $8,500 salary as an outrage upon the heavy-burdened
property owners had he been fully informed as to the tacts.
The University is actually only paying $3,500 of the $8,oOU
salary to Captain McEwan. The Associated Students are pay
ing the other $5,000 out of their own funds which are not de
rived from the general taxation. Most of their funds are the
profits upon the football games their team!s play.
Well and fairly stated. But notice one phrase: Mr. Durbin
of Salem would not have interpreted the $8,500 salary as an
outrage upon the heavy-burdened property owners had he been
fully informed as to the facts.” Mr. Durbin can not be called
to account for not knowing the facts; they were never made
public until less than two weeks ago. For some reason it was
thought best by those in charge of such matters to let the pub
lic draw its own conclusions; and draw them it did.
And after all—isn’t it best that such matters, indeed a large
share of the University business, be laid open to public scrut
iny? Publicity, while often a bit blinding for a time, usually
results in happiness for all parties' after everyone has had his
say. Any business that will not bear publicity had best not
be contracted. . T .
The Emerald is confident that nothing exists about the Uni
versity which is not utterly free from all intrigue. No more
honest group of folk could be found anywhere. 1 herefore, m
the future, when any coach, graduate manager, publicity man,
assistant coach or otherwise is hired, the Emerald suggests
that full publicity be immediately given the terms of the con
An Opportunity to Make
Golf a Minor Sport
For the last several years a steadily increasing demand for
the recognition of golf as a minor sport at the University has
been heard. Last year the proposition received more or less
attention, but nothing came of it. Now once again the cry has
been heard and the athletic authorities are giving heed. Today
a mass meeting for all those interested in golf will be held
under the auspices of the University athletic director, and it
behooves all golf fans to be on hand to press their case.
As contended before in these columns, golf is a sport that
should be given a place beside the other collegiate sports. In
deed, few and far between are the reasons why it should be left
out in the cold.
We are told that a University is a training ground for the
future; that education in college is not an end in itself, but a
preparation for later life. Carried to its obvious conclusion,
this reasoning may be applied to physical education, and hence,
to sports. Why encourage only those sports which are prac
tically useless to the participant after leaving college?
Yet, at the present time, that is precisely what is done.
Those sports, such as tennis, swimming and golf, all of which
may be enjoyed many years after college graduation, in the
realm of University of Oregon sportdom, receive the smallest
attention. Putting golf on a minor sport basis would be a step
in the right direction.
University Welcomes the Oregon
Retail Merchants’ Association
The University is particularly linppy of the opportunity to
play host for the Oregon Retail Merchants’ Association, meeting
in annual convention on the campus this week. For the past
several years the sight of multi-colored capped merchants has
been an amusing and pleasurable sight on the campus, and if
appearances be not deceiving, these same merchants appear to
be enjoying their initiation into the collegiate existence.
The University’s part in the retail merchants’ convention
is a phase of its activity which it carries into the farthest cor
ners of the state. The University of Oregon is definitely pledged
to the policy of placing its services within reach of all those
who will accept them. Or. Harry Woodburn Chase, president
elect of the University, spoke in commendation of this policy
the day he left for North Carolina.
“There is also the responsibility of carrying the university
directly into the life of the state. The university has big reser
voirs of knowledge and information. . . These reservoirs of
knowledge and information may. . . be of use to industries,
public life, school. There are many problems of state and
eities that the university may, through research and stored up
knowledge, help to solve.
“University ideas have changed somewhat. There was a
time when the university lived on the campus and did not go
beyond, when it might have imagined there was a high wall
about it. The university of today should be a power house with
its current going all through the state.”
Without doubt, in the instance of the retail merchants’ con
vention, the University is reaching definitely and surely into
the extra-earapus activities of the state. The University is
proud of this fact, and is truly honored in playing the role of
mine host to these green, red, yellow and black capped mer

Some time ago Dean Hale, of the
law department, ran an article in
the Emerald concerning the lawless
ness' of this fair land of ours. He
tabulated a number of whys, where
fores, and whereases that seemed to
get at the root of the thing. But

Justice jumbled v^ith military

motto now. That’s the American
plan. From now on be prepared

Purcell’s Orchestra
Featured at Theatre
Jimmy Purcell’s seven-piece band,
composed of campus musicians, will
furnish the special feature this eve
ning at the Colonial theatre. In
addition to the orchestra, which
will play the latest numbers of pop
ular syncopation, Bobby 'Warner,
clever clog dancer, will display his
talents in the soft shoe line.
Any students having special
skits or musical bits to offer may
call Walter Cushman at 186, and
make arrangements for appearances.
Good sportsmanship is always
harder to feel and display when
school spirit is at its highest pitch.
Although there were no reservations
made for Oregon students, a num
ber of us were fortunate enough to<
see one of the most exciting games
of the year, Saturday night. We
gladly stood in line for two hours
waiting to buy general admission
tickets, and watched the O. A. C.
students file in before any one else
was allowed to enter. They had
paid for their student body tickets,
the game was of greatest interest
to them, and, strange to say, they
were given the first chance to the
seats! The whole student body was
seated when eight of us entered,
happy to get inside the building,
and willing to stand to watch the
When we had reached the gallery,
an usher told us that we could get
seats at one of the side sections.
Being “Oregon” girls, and seeing
nothing but reserved seats unoccu
pied, we looked at each other in
wonder, and followed the usher
dubiously and with several skepti
cal comments. One student assured
us that some of the men would give
us their seats. By that time we
were thoroughly convinced that we
were being duped out of a good
place to stand. This is an age of
sex equality, and one of the first
rights conceeded to women is that of
standing up and watching the men
comfortably seated. But they have
some old fashioned ideas of chiv
alry at Corvallis; the men arose,
without grimace or comment, and
we were seated in some of the best
seats in the gym where we could
see all the floor and both baskets.
There were many catty remarks
that might have been made then
and throughout the game, for we
made no secret of the fact that we
were proud Oregon students. But
there were no catty remarks, nor
were there any women standing at
any time during the game.
It was quite evident that the
Aggie men were not playing up to
form. Their shots have been ad
, mitted “deadly accurate from
I middle distances and under the
net.” Their shots certainly could
not have been so characterized Sat
urday night. Several times, also,
the ball rolled around the edges of
their basket and surprised everyone
by falling out instead of in. There
was, oi course, no doubt that we
had the better team, but it would
have been logical to expect com
plaints of sheer bad luck and alibis
of a team in poor condition. Such
remarks were not in evidence.
We congratulate the students of
the Oregon Agricultural College on
good sportsmanship, courtesy, and
hospitality I
