In keeping with the onward

This forward step was suggested
by P. 8. Harris, ,president of a hair
tonic company, at a meeting of the
Master Barbers of Missouri, last
month. Mr. Harris, in subscribing
*5,000 toward the founding of the
special department admitted that
' darmistry, ’ in cold English
means—the barber business.”
The gentlemen back of this plan
are elevators—they’re going to ele
vate the barbering profession. It
has been agreed that barbering
should be on a high professional
plane with engineering and law, and
'.t is in the interests of the craft,
-»s well as liali) heads, that the great
project has been started.
Mr. Harris’ analysis of the ills
of the present barber colleges shows
an admirable grasp of the problems
of higher dennistry. He said, in
“If the barber business is to

their promoters are doubtless men
of good intentions, for financial
reasons, most sueh schools aro

of the great eities, and very often
attract what might be termed an
undesirable class of students—stu
dents without the foundation of a
high school education — young
men who too often enroll in such
schools, merely as a last resort,
as a sort of a retreat, if you
please, from the reek pile; schools

OW comes the new fundamen

The standpatting Pontiffs of Pig
skin are on the defensive, worry
ing lest their hold on the heavenly
kingdom be shaken through the ef
forts of unscrupulous apostates to
undermine the popular beliefs. Bet
ting favors the fundamentalists.
Says the New Student:
“The job of tearing one religion
from the hearts of a people and sub
stituting another in its place is
meeting a fearful fate at West Vir
ginia Wesleyan university. Presi
dent Jlomer E. Walk of that troub
led institution proposes to abolish
the salary of $500 a season to the
eleven high priests of pigskin and
to use the money for a new chair
of Christian theology. Pigskin de
votees have already begun the in
evitable rumpus. Sinister* hissing
greeted Apostate Wark at the chap
el services. Rumors of a student
strike are bruited about in the dorm
itories. We will be greatly surpris
ed if catstrophe is not in store for
these defilers of holy places, es
pecially since true believers all over
the state are becoming enraged. For,
after all, the world has never before
witnessed apostasy on such auda
cious scale. It is as though Martin
Luther had exhorted Christians to
espouse the rites of the vile Turks.

A Graduate’s View
To the Editor:
As a graduate of the University
.of Oregon please let me congratu
late the rerent work of the Inde
pendent Undergraduate committee.
Many graduates feel, 1 urn sure,
jta 1 do, that you are tackling a
problem which has long needed a
Some of us feel, perhaps over
vgotistically, that a different op
eertunity might have encouraged in
as an attitude closer to that of
wear so-called “student” class.
I have long and arduously de
plored the present fashion of eval
unting a college education in dollars
Many times 1 have turned in dis
gust from an assembly speaker, or
perhaps an editor, who had no more
vital information for us than that
our college education would pay in
dollars and cents.
“Good courage’’ to vour commit
tee in a big undertaking.
JESSIE O. TODD,
Class of 'll2.
Yes, Mr. Editor, both you and
Mr. William Schultze are quite
right in your reasons why you think
that the library should not be closed
during the assembly hour.
It is human nature to resist being
pushed and the. obnoxious idea that
all registrants, graduate and under
graduate alike, should be forced to
