As Living Quarters
In answer to the query, “Would you study more, less or the
same if not living in a fraternity house,” Oregon fraternity folk
have replied, substantially, that residence within the fraternal
group has made little or no difference in their application to
their study. This answer, while given honestly no doubt, is
probably open to more or less question.
During the last few years even casual followers of the
housing situation at Oregon have noticed a growing tendency
for seniors, and often times juniors or underclassmen to move
out of their fraternity houses into private homes. When asked
why the change of residence the student invariably replies, I
moved out so I could do a little real studying.” If questioned
closer the student will usually explain that too many intru
sions,’too much noise, and too much sociability were the chief
reasons for his inability to devote proper attention to the chief
work at hand, the studies.
At first thought this might appear as a healthy condemna
tion of fraternities; but upon more mature consideration it
follows that the trouble lies, not with fraternities, as institu
tions, but with fraternities as living quarters. That is, fratern
ities as they are constructed and maintained today, do not
permit the student to carry out his scholastic activities without
sufficient freedom from interruption. In fact, it appears t a
fraternities are too poor to provide satisfactory living quarters
and study rooms.
Quite frequently charges are made that fraternities are ex
travagant; that too much money is spent in the construction of
houses. In all probability the situation is quite tte opposite.
Most fraternity houses cost in the neighborhood of $1,000 per
person, or $35,000 for 35 people. A house of this sort provides
a decent exterior, a comfortable lower floor, but usually offers
very little in the way of study rooms and living quarters. In
the average fraternity house two people must dress lounge and
study in a room no larger than many cells. Furthermore the
room probably opens directly onto, a hall from whence at all
times of the day and night come disturbing noises from die
other thirty or forty people. Small wonder that the casua
student feels little inclination to seek the silence and repose
of a quiet study when he or she knows that the quiet haven will
probably result in a gainless bunk-fest before long.
Surely no one will deny that surroundings have an appreci
able effect upon the mood of the average young man or women.
And when one contrasts the temptations for a studious
evening in the average home with the attraction for study m
the average fraternity house the difference is at once apparent.
In one there is quiet and freedom from interruption. In the
other there is noise, and constant interruptions from persons
that apparently believe that brotherhood assumes an utter dis
regard for another’s time and occupations.
Some day fraternities will come to the realization that the
real function of a fraternity house is to provide a satisfactory
place to stndv. When that time comes, the houses will be con
St meted with more attention to living quarters, and fratemn
tics at the same time will pay more respect to the rights of
peace non-interruption and the pursuit of quietude. When
that time comes one of the most legitimate objections to fratern
ities will have been withdrawn.

: TON, April 19.— (P.T.P.).— Bart

! coaching staff and former line
! coach at the University of Oregon,
received a raise in salary at the
last meeting of the Board of Con
trol at its last meeting, effective
Five others. Tubby Graves, base
ball coach, who will start soon on
a new two-year contract; Enoch
Bagshaw, football mentor, Rusty
Callow, crew coach; Hoc Edmund
son, basketball and track; and
Wayne Sutton, football assistant,
also received raises, effective Sep
j tember 1. An appreciable increase
in coaches’ salaries was made.
Salaries of the University of
Washington coaches have been be
low those of other schools in the
past because of a rule which for
bade a coach’s salary being above
that of a dean of a college. How
over, the faculty consented to change
this to keep paco with the rapid
growth of athletics.

are the fundamentals of the gameff

by a brand new lawn and shrub

their opinion as to the proper ma

in favor of alfalfa. This, they
claim, not only gives a home-like
air, but does not stain the clothes.
It is too bad they did not start
earlier in the season as the present
congested condition of the “porch”
would be much relieved by the in

UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO, April
19.— (P.I.P.) — TWo hundred and
fifty three students will be gradu
ated from the University of Idaho
in June, according to announcement
by the registrar. This is the larg
est class to graduate from the Uni
versity. The number of B.A. de
grees to be granted heads the list.
To Arnold Bennett Hall,
Prominent Social Scientist Man,
University of Wisconsin.
Dear Arnold Bennett:
It does seem to me, from a more
or less careless survey of the situ
ation, that a lot of our educators
are getting an unnecessary rush of
blood to the head concerning' the de
linquency of our college boys and
Every once in a while we of the
student body of the student body of
Oregon suffer the expulsion of a
few of our fellow students for va
riou* causes—ranging from feeding
gin promiscuously to any any num
ber of other causes. Even radical
tendencies toward teachings of the
“reds” are looked for in our news
paper articles and college debates
and plays are being edited and cen
sured days in advance to nip the
radicalism in the bud, as it were.
Why can’t they realize here, and
even to a greater degree in other
colleges, that the youth of our land,
and the youth of every land, must
have its fling at radicalism and
excess, just as it must get all spot
ted up with measles and all swelled
up with mumps at times. The way
to eradicate radicalism and excess,
we of that youth think, is to let the
.boys and girls spout it out until
they get tired of hearing hemselves
talk and act silly, and the novelty
wears off and everything.
Most of us youngsters head a rev
olutionary army of one just to be
smart and different, and among
our semi-juvenile population the call
of a glass of gin and the revela
tions of Freud are just like
a boil—try to cure it outward and
visible signs of it before it has run
its natural course, and it will affect
the entire system and become in
The average college man’s life
can be divided into four epochs,
namely: Epoch 1, when he becomes
.either a pirate or an Indian slayer.
Epoch 2, when he transfers his
piratical tendencies or his efforts
to make the redskin bite the dust
into leading his downtrodden fel
lowmen into better things, which is
the radical stage. Epoch 3, when he
gets a vague idea, like the first
faint dawn ^>f speech to our cave
man ancestor, that mature folks
have as much sense as he has after
all, and, Epoch!, when he quits
his darned foolishness, starts to
make a living and turns out to be
a good Democrat or a conscientious
republican. In the interim, he falls
in love several times and makes
a monumental ass of himself.
I don’t know what ths has to do
with you who are about to take
over the reigns of our institution,
but as a member of a student body
that is fairly free fro^p real stringg
ent restrictions, I wish you’d tell
other university head* not to get
hectic when their lads start over
throwing the government or imbib
ing liquid marathon contests. It
doesn’t mean any more than colts

ears back, getting their legs all
