Belts Win First Water Polo Tilt From Chi Psis Double-Header Tonight; Varsity and Frosh to Play Series The first round of intramural water polo began yesterday when Delta Tau Delta took the first match from Chi Psi, 3 to 0. The limited space at the men’s pool was jammed to capacity by spectators. Tonight a double-header will be run off, beginning at 7 o’clock. The first contest will be between Sigma Mu and Friendly hall, while the Beta mermen battle the Indepen dents in the second tilt at 7:30 o’clock. Sigma Pi Tau, which drew a bye, will be matched with Phi Sigma Kappa Saturday morning at 9:30. These games will complete the rounds for the first week. A water polo “world series” of fiye games between the varsity and freshman swimming teams have been planned by Ed Abercrombie, swimming coach, to begin on the Tuesday following the conclusion of the intramural games. The team taking three games will gain the championship. A similar meet was held last year and was won by the yearling squad. Judging by the caliber of their men, Abercrombie thinks that they may repeat the performance again this year. Four of the games will be run off in the men’s pool, should the series run that long, and the final game will take place in the women’s tank. This tilt, said Abercrombie, will be •a regular game of the series, but will be staged as an exhibition af fair, open to the public. As the men’s pool has no accommodations for spectators, the game will be held in the Woman’s building pool. Committee (Continued from vage one) objectives that do not terminate in improved type of behavior or a; more desirable viewpoint may well be questioned. At any rate, these are matters that require careful con sideration on the part of our fac ulty. Method for Each Course “After an agreement has been reached as to the definite type of objective that should prevail in dif ferent departments or groups of de partments, there still remains the question of devising a method by which the success of the course in attaining the objective agreed upon may be definitely determined. After all, one of the primary purposes of the University is the training of its students. In some institutions, it has been considered beneath the dignity of the faculty . members to concern themselves with methods of instruction. Such, however, is not the case at the University of Ore gon.

Aesop Fables Regular Prices I may very properly concern ourselves with the problem as to whether or not we have devised a method of instruction and an organization of our courses that will accomplish the j object we have in mind. “This will probably involve de ! vising tests and measurements to be J applied both at the beginning and | the end of the course for the pur . pose of determining what the course ' has actually done in training the ' intellectual capacity of the stu dents. This opens up the whole question of examinations and wheth er they are' so framed as to test stu dent achievement along the lines of more efficient behavior and an im | proved point of view. These prob ; lems lie at the very threshold of any program for materially enhanc ing the efficiency of a university ! organization. “In certain departments on the campus, definite programs have al ready been made along these lines. It is hoped that other members of the faculty in other schools and de partments may profit by the exper iments that have been made and may press forward in the spirit of scientific investigation to find meth ods of improving the teaching serv ' ice of the University. This is a problem that the faculty alone can solve, and I invite their full co operation in -working out a construc tive program for its solution.” | Communications (Continued from page 2) impression is, but more in the na ture of an advisory group to con sult with the editor and advise him as to the best policy to pursue.

Al though Mr. Abramson thoroughly understood the circumstances sur rounding the necessity of this tax, he wrote an editorial well calculat ed to aggravate the condition among the students rather than attempt ing, as he should have, to clarify the situation for them so that they would know all the circumstances of the case and be able to judge fairly. This was one instance in which an editor in a seeming at tempt to popularize himself with the students failed signally in his duty to them. This type of mater ial going out to people in the state is the sort of thing which results in unfavorable criticism against, the university, when it all the facts were known, there would be none, lit is against such things that the 1 Publications Committee seeks to : guard. It has no intention of liam | pering an editor in the fulfillment 1 of his proper duties, but when he [over-steps himself there should be some means of stopping him. ANNE RUNES Beg Pardon Dear Miss Runes: It is not my purpose to use It is not my purpose to use the [editorial columns of the Emerald 1 in defense of my policies, even if : I believed that they needed defend ing. So I take the same means open to all other students of replying to your ill-founded attack. I If you persist in arguing that the suggested change is minor and un likely to have far-reaiching effects, II have nothing more to say. Having j closed your mind in this matter, | probably you are impervious to ar ! gument. Tour gentle insinuation that the editor never consults any one other than himself is unfound ed. The same is true of your sug gestion that only an appointive committee can be fair-minded. Just what constitutes fair-mindedness? I hope you will not overlook the alumni messages (unsolicited) which appear in the Emerald, and that you will concede that there are at least a few persons who do not share your fears about harm to the uni versity. Why worry about this more than does the University ad ministration ? And if I might make a slight cor rection: the editor is not necessarily a member of the publications com mittee. And while talking of re sponsibility, will you please explain why you would rather see the editor controlled by an appointive com mittee than by the students aScting through simplified recall procedure? You distress me with your sugges tion that I deliberately stirred up trouble about the 50 cent tax. Now, you say the tax was altogether le gitimate and fair. How about some proof ? You say I attended a meet ing and heard the matter “clearly explained.” This is an error. I did not attend the meeting, but Mr. Benefiel explained the matter to me the same evening, yet I remained unconvinced. I am yet unconvinced of the justice of the tax. I thor oughly understood the conditions, indeed, and that understanding proved to me that the tax was wrong. If you were so certain of vour view, why did you not, as a good member of the council, offer to explain it to me and the rest of the students? Your suggestions that I deliber ately tried to make trouble and even popularize myself with the students are as erroneous as your general conclusions. Are you sure you are not swayed by a tiny bit of bias? If I were seeking popularity, I must be the ideal editor. \ ou want an editor who will do as “the stu dents” wish. Y'ou yourself say the students opposed the tax. Accord ing to your reasoning then, I was simply doing my duty. Why not bo consistent? From all you have said I can draw only the conclusion that you are supporting the proposed amend ment not with any consideration to principle but chiefly for the purpose of tightening council control of campus affairs and campus opinion.
