Editorial Comment on
News of the Week
It has come to our attention that
the Dean Dymcnt affair is threat
ening to take the aspect of a nasty
mess. All manner of motives are
being suspected on the part of the
regents and various faculty mem
bers, which if true, would reflect
small credit to these persons. The
Emerald does not believe that the
regents or any others concerned are
as vicious as table talk would have
them. The Emerald believes that
certain people have made unwise
decisions and have acted inadvised
ly at times, but refuses to believe
that the motives behind these ac
tions were as malicious and selfish
as somo would have us think. The
situation has apparently come to
the point where a frank statement
of all the facts in the case should
be given to the public. If this were
done, probably the motives of all
the parties concerned would appear
in much more favorablo light than
is now the case. The regents, if
they only would, could assist ma
terially in clearing up an unfortun
Every student and faculty mem
ber of voting ago should hie him
self or herself to the polls today

are 21 or over you have a direct
obligation to cast an intelligent
▼ote for the candidates whom you
believe host qualified to administer
most skillfully in governing this
fair land. If you have not regis
tered, someone will be on hand to
swoar you in. If you live on the
north side of the mill race, you
must vote at a garage across the

If you reside on the south side of
the race, go to the Patterson grade
school to cast your vote.

Rolf Klep and Douglas Wilson,
editor a n d manager of t h o
new Oregon magazine, will pro
duce a good magazine next fall.
They will give the campus, first of
all, an intelligent publication that
will sense the spirit of Oregon;
a magazine that is interesting; ono
that will refuse to descend into the
collegiate slapstick; yet a magazine
that will be gifted with a saving
sense of humor. Furthermore, the
magazine will contain material of
substance that will evoke serious
thought; and that, unfortunately, is
the element with which most college
publications are quite unfamiliar.

Play Day, an event to be held
Saturday under the auspices of the
Women’s Athletic Association, de
serves more than passing attention.
Fifty girls from O.A.C. will spend
the day at Oregon engaging in non
competitive athletics with a like
number of Oregon girls. Under this
plan winning and losing is of minor
consequence, the sheer fun of play
ing being the order of the day. It
is reasonable that sports of this
nature will be a strong factor in
building up a love of sports for the
fun of playing—a habit and a tra
dition which is sadly lacking among
most Oregon women. The First
Flay Day should call for many more.
The mention of athletics brings
to mind another thought which has
long worried the writer. It runs
something like this: Every year
the scrubs on the varsity football
team spend afternoon after after
noon getting beaten and pummeled
to death, and from all we can gath
er, get about as much fun out of
it as a straw tackling dummy and
fill just about the same function
of the said dummy. Now here is
what the writer would like to know:
Why don’t those people in charge
of such things arrange a game or
two or three between the scrubs of
several of the colleges? For in
stance, next fall why don’t the Ore
gon scrubs get a game or two with
the O. A. C. scrubs? The game
should be fun for the players, and
should bo royal fun for the specta
tors. Perhaps some unknown ob
stacles lie in the way of a match
of this sort, but the burden of proof
lies with those who would oppose
a Scrub Battle.

The Festival of Nations pageant
to bo given tonight and tomorrow
at Guild theatre is worth seeing.
The Cosmopolitan club has arranged
a twelve-nation spectacle which will
evoke the approval of all those who
attend the pageant.
Of approximately 375 seniors in
this year’s graduating class only 30
attended the final meeting of the
class held yesterday even though
the business on hand demanded that
about $700, in the class treasury be
spent. The meeting lasted only about
thirty minutes, and when it was
over everyone made a divo for the
door. That thing called class sen
timent at Oregon is practically
lacking. Indeed, one scarcely knows
another’s class affiliation. There
is nothing particularly right or
wrong about this phenomenon, un
less it be a bit of evidence that
the education of so many of us is
interrupted so frequently that class
identity is impossible. Tho strongth
of the student body government
undoubtedly minimizes tho import
ance of the individual classes.

The doom of wrestling was sound
ed at tho recent Const Conference
meet; in fact the execution was
formally carried out. While many
persons are enthusiastic wrestlers
mist college folk will not mourn to
see tho sport relegated to the dis
card. The sport does not lend it
self well to inter-collegiate com
petition, attracting small interest
from the casual student. Those who
are devoted to wrestling will keep
it up without inter collegiate com
With wrestling abolished the
adoption of golf next fall by the
student body is almost assured. Sev
eral attempts were made this year
to put golf on the minor sport list,
but the executive council decided
that the treasury was not in con
dition to add another sport at this
time. Golf will cost no more than
wrestling, and since it is a highly
desirable college activity, it will
undoubtedly secure the sanction
needed to make it a minor sport.
It is interesting to note that the
University is publishing in pamph
let form three thousand copies of
the student report on intellectual
activity within the University which
appeared last week in the Emer
ald. Copies will be sent to Oregon j
alumni and to various newspapers,
magazines and Universities over tho
United States. This action is indi
cative of the liberal attitude which ;
Oregon officals take in matters of
student activities and opinions.

Stan “Sydney” Tomlinson returns
to campus after tour to land of
Kangaroos and Bar Flies!
Famous campus “Enoch Arden”
and heart-breaker returns after
visiting New Zealand shores. He
reports that conditions are unusually
good with respect to the wild hair
crop in Australia. While on ship
board he held the position of cabin
boy, waiter, waitress, spud-barber,
bull-cook, ship’s mascot and during
his spare moments scrubbed the
necks of the passengers in order
that they might be free from bar
nacles and sea lice.
“Sydney” was much distressed
to find upon his return that many
of his former flames refused to
“spark” in spite of his Palmolive
complexion and hairy chest. He
also brought back the latest dance
step of the native Australian, “The
Kangaroo Hop,” which dance he
maintains to be the most graceful
and satisfying when properly execu
ted in the famous native garb, the
grass skirt. Before embarking foi
the foreign shore he learned tha1
one of his esteemed feminine ad
mirers had married a native of Aus
tralia and to his utter astonishmenl
he discovered upon his arrival ir
that country that the native ol
Australia was a Kangaroo. Inci
dentally his many black friends will
be glad to learn of his safe arrival
in the States.

ODE TO THE
By Edward Robeson Taylor
Above the noise and tumult of the
Thou risest to the silences of heav
A glorious thing from even unto
A beauty’s vision fading not away,
It must have been more than bless
When all the feelings rose conjoint
Against the glamour of some world
That moved in her heart to raise
thee to the skies,
Where thou in all thy veins of steel
With Aspiration’s purest blood shall
As evermore around thee shall be
The Seeds of Learning and of
And back of thee the radiant, ever
Gigantic flower thou, whose beauty
With unimagined loveliness of Art,
Of all the campus blossoming the
And sublimated essence of its
Giving the fragrance of unwonted
In many a far-away, delightsome
Or where the cypress builds her
Or e’en where mild-eyed fairies
love to dwell;
Where books disclose their magic
And cast their cuuning lures for
While sweets as strange as life
their joyance pour,
Till all the moments in one round
Within the arms of Concord pleasur
The fateful hours of the passing
From thee shall ever musically peal,
And through the somnolence of
night shall steal,
Till lost in whispering echoes Sat
Perpetual guardian tli-ou, whose
tongue shall tell
The lesson learnt in Indolence’s
i When idle thoughts the idle bosom
| And Time unreaped its wretched
j Yet shall thy bolls of ever-present
Hearten the struggle of laborious
And Trade herself will turn a lis
As she pursued her daily myriad
When mid her roar thy golden voice
the minute tolls.
Symbol of Truth, thou ever-preeious
Thy winged word speaks from thy
With voice as clear as that of some
Ice-crowned peak far reaching to
It wakes our bosom’s golden-heart
Until in music of seraphic strain
It lifts our thoughts from every
Up to the wisdom of celestial gain;
Thou ceaseless monitor of worthy
We greet thee here as some familiar
Who blessing gives us that can
have no end,
And all enoblement forever breeds.
Imagination sees upon thy sides
The golden names of those that nev
With those rare ones that hid their
Yet did their work that others
raised on high;
With these thy stones in living glo
Thy column seems to pierce the
And we longer and the longer gaze,
A reverential incense seems to rise
And wreath itself in hallowed words
of holy praise.
