On Matters of
PRESIDENT HALL’s extensive
statement of policy made in the
course of his inaugural address Mon
day was a comprehensive outline
of administrative program, and
when shorn of the usual inaugural
impedimenta, a rather flat-footed
outline of intentions. Plans which
include the development of research,
cultivation of the individual stu
dent, qualitative standards of meas
urement as opposed to quantitative
ones, cannot but meet the approval
of those who liavo tho problem of
higher education at heart.
Furthermore, we believe that Dr.
Hall is such a roan as tho college ex
T-eutivo President Littlo described,
who will “stand on his own opinions,
as well as those of his regents and
the people of his state . . . even
though his life, at the front, like
that of an infantry officer, may bo
To state that Dr. Hall’s success
as an executive hero will depend up
on the support rendered by tho state
is in a sense to reiterate a weary
platitude. The future of tho Uni
versity of Oregon is as much in
tho hands of the state as it is in
those of Dr. Hall. He can make
plans, he can propose reforms, but
ho is helpless without the backing
of tho state.
After all, the most that we can
ask of the citizens is that they take
an interest in us, an intelligent, in
formed interest. If Dr. Hall’s pro
gram, as outlined Monday, doesn’t
appeal to tho citizenry, let us hear
about it. Active, open remonstrance
is often one of the most effective
menus of clearing up obscure issues.
Following our own advice, we hope
that the cultural importance of a
college education will be given at
tention. It is possible that tho term
culture is generally viewed in the
limited sense of the word, as a kind
of social asset which only the en
dowed institutions can afford to cul
tivate. Perhaps Dr. Hall mentioned
it under a different name. At any
rate it will bear mentioning again.
Last spring, about the time- tho
student report appeared, there was
a slight flurry of interest in this
problem of the cultural aspect of a
university education* and it was
generally agreed that it was of no
small importance. The interest isn’t
completely dead. Wo would like to
see its encouragement incorporated
in the new administrative program.
Amendment number one. Who’s

An Educational Treat
U AIIELY do wo students have tho
-*■*■ opportunity of enjoying the
visit at one time of as many dis
tinguished educators as are now on
The symposia in which they are
participating offer unusual oppor
tunities for hearing authoritative
talks on a variety of subjects, by
men who are leaders in their fields.
The combination of the inauguration
of President Hall and the celebra
tion of the University’s fiftieth an
niversary have served to make pos
sible this rare cultural treat.
Those students who are taking
advantage of tho discussions and
lectures are no doubt finding them
selves amply rewarded. We arc for
more symposia at more frequent in
tervals, however not at all times in
connection with inaugurals. On the
contrary, we hope that Dr. Hall’s
life “at the front” will be long and
useful, and that, through his ac
tive interest as principal, the sys
tem which most of us are now tast
ing for the first time, may be con

versity buildings backwards, they

anv rejection,” says the “McGill
Daily,” “is that freshmen must not
go into taverns.”
The “Michigan Daily” is lament
ing the scarcity of freshmen this
year. Only 1,792 enrolled; 1,315 men
and 477 women. Total enrollment
for the University is 9,859, which is
600 less than last year.

Slickers and galoshes have arriv

of humor of the editor, whose edit
orials are amusingly sarcastic.

Freshman Girls Must

As a result of the combined ef
fort of the frosh girls, 4000 Home
coming pennants are now ready for
sale. The question now is, how soon
will they be sold? At the rate with
which the girls are distributing them
about to the living organizations,
there is a chance that they may
break the -record on sales, too.
A freshman in each house is made
definitely responsible for fifty or
more pennants, and if he or she is
unable to dispose of them there,
they will be expected to resort to
the visitor and alumni who will be
guests on the campur. The motto
this week will be: “Everybody wear

Take a tip from the
r- triple-threat man
HE keeps them guessing, does the back,
because when he gets the ball he can pass,
kick or run—a triple threat.
Men preparing for industry or commerce can
put themselves in an equally strategic position.
It all gets back to the simple idea of being
broad and versatile.
An engineer should be well up on his specialty,
of course, but he should also keep' an open
mind for questions of finance, law and public
relations—if he aspires to a high place in the
councils of his organization.
Such “all-aroundness” typifies in particular
men who have brought the electrical com
munication industry to what it is today, and
who will carry it to still greater development
in the years to come.
