-A*- The heavy vote against the
limitation of Emerald editorial con
trol comes as a pleasing indication
that the electorate has been think
ing not only in terms of what collego
newspapers have been, but what
they should be—stimulators rather
than mere reflectors of student
thought. At the same time we hope
sincerely that the decision will put
to rest any future attempts to lim
it the editor’s control.
The vote can be taken to indicate
that students ask more from their
editor than mere platitudes on per
ennial subjects. Wo say this in the
belief that the amendment was con
sidered for what it meant abstract
ly, rather than as an issue between
one student administration and a
particular Emerald administration.
To interpret t'ho vote as a repudia
tion of the student administration
is, we bclievo, manifestly unfair.
That was not the issue; and we do
not consider tho electorate as hav
ing vindicated one sido and repud
iated the other. The Emerald as
sumes that the student body decided
it better to have an editorial pago
devoted to sincere expressions of
opinions, however new and dis
tasteful they might be, than a more

Method of Lessening
Term Paper Drudgery
Tried by Mr. Mueller
A plan for term papers that gives
the emphasis to the collection, clas
sification, and interpretation of ma
terial, and not to literary style
and elaboration, is being inaugurat
ed here by John IT. Mueller, assist
ant professor of sociology. This plan
has been used by him in other in
stitutions, both as h student and as
an instructor, notably at tile Uni
versities of Chicago and Missouri.
The bibliography, a literal or
summary statement of significant
passages from readings, the names
and pages of these reference books,
and a title for the passage us a
heading are put on colored cards,
generally four by six inches. White
cards are used for the original ideas
of the students. One idea is put on
each page so that the pages can be
The material is not put in essay
form, thus making less drudgery
for the students. Every sheet can
be used, but when material is or
ganized into essay form, much of
it cannot be used, since it is irrele- j
vant. The students using this moth- j
barometer of the momentary no
tions of the electorate.
Viewed in this light the decision
reflects favorably on the students.
We hope it remains a precedent
to which future editors may look,
and wherein they may find full au
thority and confidence for writing
what they think, rather than what
they believe they are supposed to
The past few years have seen a
change in the nature of the editor
ial pages of the collego papers.
The grandmotherly attitude of com
plaisance toward things that are
because they are, has changed. A
more critical attitude has come to
bear, and with it a liberalization of
thought and an appeal to the think
There have been casualties, of
course. A few editors have been un
ceremoniously separated not only
from their journalistic careers, but
from their collegiate, likewise. But
the change has come, nono the less.
With the independence of the pa

the sacred cows, whether they be
within or without the universities.

do it for theso high school boys
whom none of them knew, would
probably ever seo again and who
meant little or nothing to tho fra

And hero’s the rub. Not long ago
the inter-fraternity council passed
a rule forbidding anyone but mem
bers to sleep overnight in the fra

presumably because someone might
have to sleep on the floor.
These newcomers on the campus,
the rushees, tnean a lot moro to fra

boys. There are plenty of beds for
them, graduations and lute-returners
take care of that phase and the
house will probably pledge a lot of
them anyway to fill up these empty
beds and rooms.’

Captain Culin, R.O.T.C.
Faculty Member, to Go
To Infantry School
Captain Frank L. Culin, Jr., mem
ber of the B. O. T. C. faculty, will
attend an infantry school at Camp
Benning, Georgia, next year where
he will receive nine months of
schooling in infantry weapons. This
announcement was made yesterday
by Lieutenant Colonel W. S. Sin1
clair, professor of military science
at the B. O. T. C. His work there
will be intensive training, a large
part of it theoretical, but the major
part the actual experience in hand
ling machine guns, automatic rifles,
37 millimetres, hand and rifle gre
nades, trench motors, and tanks.
To replace Captain Culin, Cap
tain Clarence H. Bragg, who will
be graduated from the infantry
school this June, will come to the
University sometime prior to the
opening of college in the fall. He
participated in the World War as
a reserve officer from May, 1917,
until his appointment in the reg
ular army service in 1920. Captain
Bragg was born in Oregon.
Captain Culin goes on leave June 1
for approximately two months and
will spend this time in Arizona. In
August, he will return to San Fran
cisco and take a transport to New
York City by way of the Panama
canal. From there, he will go to

A new book by one of the keenest
minds among contemporary writers
is “The World in the Making,” by
Count Hermann Keyserling and
translated by Maurice Samuel.
The book is based on the state- !
ment, “A man’s understanding of
life is the sole force which directs
life,” and the belief that it is
through understanding that the per
sonal and the universal meet. The
book makes an analysis of present
world tendencies, and explains that
since our understanding of the
world is what gives the world mean
ing and directs its growth, it is for
each to train his understanding.
Those who understand are the ones
to direct and mold.
The volumo includes the autobi
ography of Hermann Keyserling,
outlining his own process of growth.

Does the psychological test given
at the beginning of the freshman
year represent a stable measure
ment of capacity, or do students
change their relative rank consid
erably over a period of a year and
To collect data in regard to this
point psychological tests were giv
en to a group of sophomore business
administration majors Tuesday
afternoon by Howard B. Taylor,
professor of psychology.
The tests given the sophomores
are very similar to those given them
when they were freshmen, accord
ing to Mr. Taylor. The general pur
pose is to determine how much cre
dence may be put in the freshman
tests as A. measure of the student’s
capacity during the following years.
“A short time ago these tests were
given to the sophomore psycholog
ical laboratory students, of whom
63 were women and 13 men,” Mr.
Taylor said. “The tests were given
to the business administration ma
jors today because they are a larger
group, they represent a larger pro
portion of men, and they are as
representative a group of students
as any on the campus.”
University Gains 53
Over Total of 1925-26
Campus enrollment in the Univer
sity for the year 192Q-27 has reach
ed a total of 3054 with the comple
tion of registration for the spring
term, according to a compilation
made by the registrar’s office. This
represents a gain of 53 ever the
total for 1925-26, when 3001 were
entered as students in the Univer
The total enrollment for the year
is expected to be much greater than
that of 1925-26 when figures for
the medical school, the Portland
and Salem centers, and the corres
pondence division are available.
About 230 are registered in the
I MARK |X 1
medical school and around 6,000 in
the extension division.
The actual attendance on the
campus at the present time is 2496.
The difference between this figure
and that of the year’s enrollment
is accounted for by withdrawals
because of sickness and lack of fi
nances, the finishing of work to
wards degrees, and failure to pass
a sufficient number of hours.
