TIETHER there be a veritable
T ▼ “'wave’' of college suicides or
no must be answered by a more de
tailed and interpretive examination
of the (lata than has so far been
Mafic by any of the howlers who
have raised the cry. For instance,
an intelligent answer would neces
sarily take into consideration the
ratio of college suicides to suicides
generally,—past and present.
Howsoever, there is no escaping
tho fact of a tidal wave of shouts,
pratings, wagging of heads and wise
finalities anent the cause of the phe
nomenon. Pick up a newspaper or
a magazine almost, any where or
any time and the chances are even
that you will find some fresh opin
ion on the matter.
The assigned causes have long
since out-numbered the famous
Hfty-seven varieties. They range
from “modern philosophy and psy
chology” to the weather. Over-edu
cation and under-education; coward
ice and boldness; extroversion and
introversion; all these and many
other easy guesses have been fas
tened upon as the source of the
suicidal “fad.” Every man from
high priest to country editor con
sults his particular religious or so
cial prejudices and reads the writ

“Many students have a hard

rjx) EXPRESS surprise at any- ■
thing a modern university may j
undertake to teach nowadays is to i
confess lack of sympathy with mod- I
ornity. This may be a very good i
thing to confess and defend at
| times, however. The proposal to add
a course of lectures on the moving
picture industry to the curriculum ;
of the Harvard graduate school
seems to provide a case in point. [
While it is obvious that many people j
are engaged in this industry who j
know little or nothing about it, this !
after nU is a matter of business, not j
of education in a university.
The youth of a nation, and this
should apply to the students to the
south of us, are sent to its univer
sities not to learn how to make dol
j lars and cents, but to learn how to
live. In precise proportion to the
success it attains in aiding them to j
this knowledge is the university ful
filling its proper function. When it
begins to offer courses in the fine
arts of managing a peanut-stand at
a street corner or producing pic- ;
turns for the edification of the pub
lic, then the university might as well
abrogate its present proud position
as the source of inspiration and
guidance to young men and women
of today. To add purely commercial
training in one special business to
the course of any university is eth
ically wrong and a practical error of
the first magnitude.
“TJ'KLLOW editors,” we call
tliem in this brief welcome.
And it’s so pleasant to call them
that, because in a few months the
best claim we’ll have will be “fel-i
low human being.” In the mean- I
time, though, WO are equals, and I
as we say “welcome, fellow edi- ;
tors," we feel mighty iiU||optnnT,
Even though we know the inevitable
tomorrow is just around the corner,
we’ll try to be on our dignity ttml

the communicant-’a sentiments are !
too precious for the editor alone.
For the Many or the Few?
To the Editor:
From reliable sources comes to
me the news that members of the
Executive Council have been pro-'
videil with complimentary tickets
for the Coast Conference games.
Yet only with one ticket but with
several, in order that they might
invite several dear friends. Under
these conditions the rumored gate
crashefs have my wholehearted en
dorsement and more power to them.
Of course there has been a great
deal of wrangling over what to Mr.
Beneliel is a small matter and to the
degree of what one correspondent
calls the corruption of Oregon spirit
over the "mere tritie” of a fifty
cent charge. Don’t worry, we’ll still
have that old Oregon Spirit—wr're
not forgot ting it at all. And fur
thermore we all know the games or
any part of a game is going to be
worth fifty cents. What we are
moaning about is the principle of
the thing. And why should the
Executive Council members be
shown any more favoritism than
anyone else? Why should they re
ceive more than one ticket? Don’t
worry if a person can’t judge how
anxious we are to see the Hreen
and VeUow emerge victorious bv
the remonstrances of the past week
over a mere fifty cent charge which
the majority of the students think

Twenty-three students have com
mitted suicide now. When I think
about term papers the number al
most leaps to twenty-four.
Object as you may but we take
off our hat to the Delt frosh who
got into the game free by carrying
a Corona case.
The first of the state editors ar
riving on the campus for the press
convention. It would be just our
luck to have a nice scandal break
while they are here on the spot.
Few of them have ink under their
nails, however. As many students as
possible should make an effort to
carry a copy of College Humor un
der their arm while they are here.
It is expected of us.

coming to Eugene, Mr. Copydesk
was art critic of the Police Gazette
but failing eye-sight caused by the
terrific strain forced him to resign.
He came west just at the time the
Oregon Journal was completely
baffled by the problem of printing
square papers with its new rotary

To the Editor:
Careful reading of the student
body ticket should do much to dear
up the misunderstanding in regard
to the payment of admission fees
to the games. Final intercollegiate
contests are there differentiated from
other campus activities or events.

must be paid whether the game is
played in Eugene, or, as last year,
The whole trouble could be clear

have made large sums of money
from them# What are the salaries
of some of the officials and the ex
