On the Future of
The New Magazine
The Emerald hastens to take back whatever unkind words
may have been said in the past concerning the attitude of the
executive council towards a new campus magazine. With a fair
trial promised for the magazine there is no room for objection.
All praise to the council for its change of attitude.
Needless to say, a large portion of the campus will rejoice
that the University of Oregon is to to-nce more sponsor a maga
zine. After several years of no-magazine-at-all the need for
this "type of publication has become forcibly evident, and we
may assume that a full understanding of the worth of a maga
zine, peculiarly enough, brought about by its absence, will be
sufficient reason to insure a jealous guard of its future.
It is to be hoped that the new magazine will not become too
specialized; for instance, the new magazine, unlike Lemon
Punch, should not contain humor alone. It should not be a dry
so-called “literary” magazine. It should not be merely a story
magazine, and it should not be a house organ for the various
departments of the University. Rather, this new publication
should portray the very quintessence of the undergraduate
' spirit in whatever forms this spirit finds its best expression, be
it stories, articles, essays, pictures, humor or poetry.
The magazine must be a popular magazine, in the sense that
it appeal to a large portion of the student body, yet at the
same time should not merely blindly cater to the mob taste.
Any publication, by its very existence, has a strong responsi
bility to guide into proper channels the tastes of its readers.
This is true of a newspaper, or of a magazine, and the newly
authorized publication is no exception.
It is to be hoped also that the new magazine will have a
mind and a soul; a mind in the sense that it will enter vigor
ously the arguments of the day, and that it will be aware
always of the thoughts and the actions of the undergraduate
body. It should have a soul in the sense that it possess a per
sonality—■’that it contain within itself a distinctive appeal
peculiar to no other publication, here or elsewhere.
Resting with the future editors and managers of this publi
cation is a large responsibility and a large (opportunity. We
trust they will make the most of it.
, Commun
l ications
To tho Editor of the Emerald:
T, like many other students, was
interested to learn that tho Exe
eutivo Council had granted tho pe
tition for a campus magazine.
T, also, noticed that a name had
not been selected for the publica
tion, and would like to suggest
that the new magazine be named
for the former fun publication
"Lemon Punch.”
The use of the already familiar
name would be of great advertis
ing value :us it would suggest tho
type of magazine and identify it
with the University of Oregon.
“Lemmy” was a good magazine
and failed only from lack of fin
ances. The name is distinctive and
is ns much of an institution as tho
University itself.
May the magazine meet with in
imitable success, and 'uphold the
high character of the former “Lem
on Punch.”
To the Editor of the Emerald:
Thanks to the Executive Council
the University is to have a maga
zine. To name it is another prob
lem, for it should have an appro
priate name.
Why not call it the Webfoot—-a
name by which tho University is
known from const to coast and by
which all Oregon teams are ac
knowledged on their trips. It seems
that thus far no suitable nomen has
been satisfactorily judged quito
significant of the University and
its ideals. To me Tigers, Boars,
Bobcats and Cougars are as far
from being a representative name
for the respective schools for which
they stand ns a fish is representa
tive of bird life of today. To me
the Oregon Webfoot has a tinge
to it that smacks of something dis
tinctly Oregonian and I have so far
seen none or heard of any that com
pare with it as a desirable signa-,
turn to affix to our new publica

Today is the day of days for the
Freshman track aspirants ns the
Yearling squad will bo picked this
afternoon. All of the events will
be run off, according to Bill Hay
ward, starting promptly at 1:30.
The first four men in each event
will comprise the squad but as many
of tho men have not rounded into
shape there will probably be no
fast times turned in.
Any of the men who do not make
the squad should not be down heart
ed, Bill says, because as soon as a
man is able to beat any of those
on the squad lie will take that man’s
place. Several good throws should
be handed in in the weights as tho

To the Sporting Editors,
Emerald Optimist Men,
Dear and Respected Editor Men:
You sporting guys devote too
much of your time to writing about
football and baseball, and box
fighting, and golluf, seems to me,
and too little to the greatest na
tional games of them all—poker
and electioneering.
Why not have the boys cover
really excitnig draw poker contests
that are ocurring almost contin
ouslv, ag it were, in all our fra
ternity houses? Cover it like you
would a track meet and describe
adroitly some of the local politici
ans permeating the smoke with lies,
and do it in a good, snappy way.
For instance, a good draw poker
game could be written up about like
this, mixing gollufing, ^baseball,
track and tennis altogether if you
want to, so that any of the boys on
your staff would feel at home writ
ing at a poker game:
“The Fraternity Foursome Pok
erists got together on a four-hour
bout last night and put more lead
into a game that cost the losers
plenty more, even than is usual
with this famous quartet of experts
on stud and cut-throat.
“Bill Smith took the deal on
Round 1, passing a couple of color
ed ladieg to Sam Jones, a bob-tail
flush to Make Brown, three two
spots to Jake Jones and four aces
to himself.
“Sam Jones opened for half a
smacker, Mike saw him and raised
him a buck, and Jake Jones went a
buck better, making $4.50 down and
Jake and Jones to go, which he did
by calling.
■Jones canea ior a reaeai m

pack against the Alpha Chi Omegas

Gamma Phi Beta to anybody who
supported her. Fran Morgan called

new entrant and called for time
out. It was Bolser who withdraw
when he saw the cards. Despite
the interruptions, the Umpire di
rected a continuation of the game.
“On the draw Sam Jones didn’t
better his negro pair any, but threw
in a buck, to make it good. Mike
Brown, having filled his bob-tail,
raised a simoleon and Jake Jones,
still holding a triplet of deuces,
thought he’d hold somebody to the
■mat by raising it to a five-spot,
which Bill Smith saw and went 10
round smackers better.
“This stymied Sam Jones at the
second hole as it were and he took
the count with a niblick. Mike
Brown raised 20 bones, and Jake
Jones, being knocked cold by the
20, lay down on the m!at beside Sam
Jones and listened to little birdies
“This put it up to Mike and Bill
to stage the main event.
“Bill uppercuts Mike with a half
century bill, and Mike came back
with a left-hoolt. in tho shape of a
century note.
“Bill handed out a short-arm jab
with two centuries, and Mike
promptly countered with a $500 yel
“In turn he was made groggy
when Bill plastered him with a

he raked in the coin and passed
the deal over to Sam Jones.”

Editorially Clipped
Few days pasg by without some
acid criticism being spat upon high
er education by college presidents
or professors. They offer some
pointed minor suggestions, but they
are too engrossed with looking at
the machinery to see what is wrong
with the machine.
So it has become one of the
grandest of college traditions for
the editors of college newspapers
to point out at some time during the
year their pet peeves against the
educational system. Wherefore the
editorial, since the traditions must
be respected.
The zest to see what waits around
the corner, the urge to know what
lies back of it all, the love of
strong life, these are the things we
believe a college^ or university
should faster in its students. At
least a college career should not
take these things away. Yet that
is the result of four years on a cam
pus for most students.
If we are allowed to keep this
zest, this urge, and this love, wo
may be trusted to pick up some in
formation for ourselves.
^Revision of curricula and grad
ing systems are the reforms most
often urged by educators. We think
those are minor reforms.
Nine-tenths of the faculty mem
bers who teach us respect as many
taboos as did the pagan priests. In
the fields of political theory, in
sex, in prejudices of race and reli
gion, in problems of capital and
labor, in the truth about wars, na
tional heroes and shibboleth's—to
mention but a few—in these we are
told what is thought will be good
for us tb know.
Then this learning is given us in
predigested lumps lacking in educa
tional vitamins. Our instructors for
the most part are not leaders in ed
ucational adventures, in sallies in
to life. They too often do not make
their subjects live for their classes,
do not command the respect of their
students, are neither willing nor
able to live the strong life them
Colleges, in short, are devitaliz
ing. They make us want the soft
things in life. They take the hair
off men’s chests and put goggles
on their Tyes. When we are given
our diplomas and are ready to leave
the campus we are more ready to
compromise with life than to battle
with it.
We ask for a look at life anl
are given a lecture illustrated with
pretty colored lantern slides. We
ask for learning and get petty les
sons to memorize. We ask for light
and the curtain is pulled back only
so far as it is thought safe for us
to see.—Ohio State Lantern.

“What kind of work?” she said
in answer to the reporter’s ques-1
tion. “Oh, a great variety of work.!
Many of these boys, particularly
the Chinese, make fine house boys;
some are dishwashers; some work
in restaurants, and some are jani- j
Besides the Filipino and Chinese j
students, Mrs. Donnelly said there
are two Bulgarans, six Australians,
one Korean, one Bussian, and one |
student from India.
“Not many of them, are sent by :
their countries,” she said, “as many
persons suppose. There are four l
government Chinese students, but
the majority 'come on their own.’ ”|
“Do the foreign students ever feel
that they are being discriminated
against?” Mrs. Donnelly was asked, j
“No, I don’t believe they do,”
she replied thoughtfully. “Mo'st
of them feel that if there is any
discrimination against them, it is
in a large measure their own fault.
I. always tell them they will be re
ceived in the spirit in which they
come. Of course, many persons are
narrow minded or ignorant, and re
fuse to let themselves associate with
Vie foreigners. If they would only
realize that these students aTe the
cream of their own countries, they
would not be so quick to judge. If
an American graduate went to Chi
na, for instance, the Chinese stu
dents he knew here on the campus
would be the first persons he would
look up, and he would get all the
help he could from them to further
any of his business enterprises, so
I see no reason why he should shun
them here.”
Mrs. Donnelly believes the situa
tion on the Oregon campus better
than anywhere else on the coast.
“Of course, we do not intend to
take undo credit. It is smaller
here, and consequently the problem
is easier to deal with.”

Soloist Robert McKnight
A study of the history of religion liberty, based on
Henrik Van Loon’s Book “Tolerance.”
An inquiry into the significance of the present anti
evolution crusade to suppress the expression of phil
osophic interpretaton of scientific facts.
Unitarian churches are uniting in defence of freedom
of thought and expression.
It is a struggle in which Unitarians feel they should
lead because Unitarianism is the product of free
thought and is colored through and through by the
insight and the revelation science has given regard
ing the universe.
Our pulpit is a free pulpit. Our minister is expected
to speak boldly, without quibbling or evasions.
University men and women are always welco'me at
the “Little Church of the Human Spirit.”
Am in the best of humor due
to the fact that I recently exca
vated a box of McKillop’s as
sorted candies from behind the
pillows on the davenport. It’s
such delicious stuff—all kinds
and flavors and is always so
popular that to preserve it for
ones own selfish use concealment
is absolutely necessary.
