«<T7'VEN if all education were

Bertrand Itussel.
Hall, Cfo*'"-'
Here are the Frosh
THE sacrificial freshman lamb has
been burned on the altar of
tradition, and tho voracious sopho
more war gods have been appeased.
Bet the wheels of the University
again start their turning. The green
material has been beaten into shape.
Now the machine can turn out its
How the gods must have giggled
and guffawed! It was such fun!
Those funny boys with paint-smear
ed faces and bruised hands and legs
looked so subdued. And here and
there some freshman who doubted
the sanctity of tho very noble tradi
tion was convinced of the error in
his thought process by means of a
paddle wielded by a husky, who
managed to keep from flunking out
of school last year because his gym
and military grades wore permitted
to count on tho necessary nine hours.
How could anyone object to such
pleasant boyish pranks? It was
enough to make anyone want to go
to college. Itis just like what the
movies show. Too bad the benefits
of a college education are open to
only a select few.
But do not forget tho seriousness
of the occasion. How solomn it was,
after all, when the freshmen bowed
as they donned their green caps and
resolved to do all in their power to
keep unblemished the sacred name of
Alma Mater. Yes, the solemn scene
almost brought forth tears. Won
derful, that spirit! It was neces
sary to force it upon a few of tho
boys, but then some neople never
know what is good for them.
The spirit of patriotism has taken
root in the hearts of Oregon’s “big
gest and best.” We are now assur
ed, thanks to the diligent sopho
mores, that there will be no monkey
wrenches thrown into the University
mill as it grinds out its grist.
Hail, Oregon, hail! Don’t you feol
the spirit of patriotism surging up
within you?
You don’t? Slacker! traitor! bet
ter men than you have been shot.
Bread and circuses? So that’s the
thanks you return for your educa
tional opportunities.
No! Not bread and circuses. Noth
ing quite that digestible. Circuses
and applesauce. That's us.
Be Happy, Professor,
Popularity is Near
AN automobile, nice clothes and
a healthy allowance are enough,
according to usual college stan
dards, to make any male student
popular. If the student is a woman,
vary this formula by substituting
curly hair for any of the preceding
qualifications. Add dancing ability
in both cases. But what is the se
cret of faculty popularity? Grades?
Sense of humor? Clothes?
For the good of the faculty, the
Emerald has gone to great length
to obtain tho answer. Nothing but
our friendship and admiration for
the deans, [professors, instructors,
and even tho graduate assistants
dictated this arduous task. The for
mula should mean as much to the
faculty as the Fountain of Youth
would have meant to Ponce de Leon
had he discovered that which did not

Staid Oxford and Cambridge Yield
Recruits to Radicalism
(Now York Times)
Oxford and Cambridge, despite
their ancient Tory traditions, con
tinue to provide the British radical
party with recruits from the wealthy
and aristocratic classes. Viscount
Knnsmore, Id year old heir of the
Karl of Listowel, is the latest to
join the Fabian Society at Oxford
and to announce his intention of
preparing for a political career iu
the Labor party after graduation.
No longer is the young Briton’s
political creed settled by the circum
stances of birth and tradition. The
Tory and Liberal parties no longer
regard nature’s handiwork with the
Gilbert Sullivan humor of “Iolan
l often think it’s comical
How nature always does contrive,
That every boy and every gal,
That’s born into this world alive,
Is either a little Liberal
Or else a little Conservative.
Many brilliant young recruits, have
joined the Labor party during their
undergraduate careers, the most note
worthy being Premier Baldwin’s
•on and Oswald Moseley, who mar
ried Lord Curzon’s daughter and
converted her to his Socialist crceS.
The Fabian Society, still virtually
the “brains” of the Labor party,
was founded at the end of tho Vic
torian era by George Bernard Shaw,
Mr. and Mrs. Sydney Webb, G. K.
Chesterton, Hilaire Belloe, and other
intellectuals to make a scientific sur
vey of social and economic condi
tions in Britain. These findings were
published in a series of pamphlets,
and more than a few were penned
oy tne author of "Candida” and
“Joan.” Belloc and Chesterton left
the Fabians to start thu Guilds
movement, but this organisation has
waned in power.
Oxford and Cambridge, especially
since the war, have beeomo nurseries
of intellectual radicalism. Recently
the \ ice Chancellor of Oxford raised
a storm of criticism by exacting
from two undergraduates a promise
that they refrain from expressing
Socialist and Communist opinions
while they remained members of the
university. Since theso opinions
have always been freely expressed
in the Oxford and Cambridge
Unions, the undergraduate debating
societies, the ^ ice Chancellor be
came a target for endless protests.
But the Tories and the dwindling
Liberals can no longer regard La
bor's growth with Gilbertinn equa
nimity. When the Socialist Countess
ot Warwick, gave her mansion,
Kaston Lodge, at Dunmow, Essex, as
a summer school of politics frr the
Labor party, the Tories and Liberals
promptly offered counter-attractions
to the youth of Britain. And now,
with Labor and radical thought per
meating the once conservative quad
rangles of Oxford nudB Cambridge,
the older political parties are wor

Penny Whistle
Here’s a penny’s-worth of space
given us to deliver ourselves blat
antly on a penny-whistle of this
and that, tempers and distempers—
crotchets, perchance—boojks per
force. Books, we see, must be vil
ified, adored, and hated—but, of
necessity, read. We bitterly regret!
their insidiousness, but confess help
lessness. And, reading them, we de
mand to talk about them in order
to persuade ourselves that iwe’re
resisting them—that we aren’t such
paltry peppercorn in the face of
them, anyway—in short, that we’re
pretty canny crpatures. (None of j
which persuasion we’ve enveigled to I
front-stage, to our resentment.) (
Lolly Willowes or
The Loving Huntsman
Here is a little book that blends
with the autumnal scene, from the
tail of its yellow leaf-like jacket
to its tale of a strange autumn
courtship. The pages rustle with the
same vague surrender that goes with
falling leaves; beneath the flat tones
of a woman’s settled life are seen
the brighter shafts of her secret
whims and fancies. Lolly Willowes,
in truth, spinster though she was,
had that maple-leaf personality—
one which soberly kept her close to
| the family branch during the spring
and summer of life, only in the
autumn to take on shocking, wine
dregged hues and at last, in a sin
gle scarlet gesture of release, let
go the steady twig of custom and
descend quite unattached to a sweet
earthen decay.
But simply because Lolly Wil
lowes.belongs to Autumn is no rea
son that its vista is drear. Indeed,
i the humor runs as freely as maple
j syrup and it has a bite not unlike
good cider, cider of some standing
and respectable maturity. Anyway,
how could such a blandishing title
as “Lolly Willowes” or “The Lov
ing Huntsman” forewarn of else
but drollery? The title like Romeo
and Juliet, and Franky and Johnny,
is one of those containing the names
of the hero and heroine. The Lov
ing Huntsman, however, steps into
our story with a good deal of back
ground and reputation. The reader
undoubtedly has heard of him long
before books were to be rented for
five cents a day. The gentleman
happens to be none other than His
Royal Slyness, Satan, Prince of
Darkness, the Devil, the Tempter,
Mephistopholies, Beelzebub, Old
Nick, the Dickens, and so on ad
insipidum. But the author of Lolly
Willowes introduces him as the Lov
ing Huntsman and ah! such care
less artifice, such indifferent aim,
but such—well—diabolic success he
does attain.
About Lolly Willowes herself, he
roine and spinster, one must not, I
however, entertain the ancient and'
fallacious (potions concerning Old
Maids, for it is largely a Fiction
that spinsters come from the wall
flower species, that bachelor girls
are the Kind that Men Forget, and j
that maiden ladies are secretly and j
eternally out for a Man. It is not
usually that the spinster has got
less out of life than the rest of us
but rather that she has sought for
more. Of such was Laura Wil
lowes. She had been one of those
children who are happiest when
alone. Later when there were young
men about she was given to curious
laughing comments or remarks that
were just “queer,” so people said, i
It was after her father’s death j
when Laura was living in London j
with her married brother that she j
-felt as one betrayed by life. “She
had actually a sensation that she |
was stitching herself into a piece of
embroidery, with a good deal of
background.” . . . “One day is so
like another that it’s just almost'
impossible to put salt on its tail.”!

Her “queerest” moment comes;
when Lolly leaves her stodgy Lon
don family and removes to the i
strange village of Great Mop
“somewhere in the Chiltirns.” And
there takes place this maiden lady’s1
rendez-vous and assignation with
Satan. There is no explaining such
an alliance any more than one can
explain any kind of marriage. Lol
ly’s match gave her that same sat
isfaction, probably, that most brides
feel. Sho thinks to herself: “All
finalities, whether good or evil, be-,
