Smoke and
Be Damned
DO YOU remember, perchance,
that rather uncomfortable es
say of Tolstoy’s entitled, “Why Bo
Men Stupefy Themselves?” That es
say in which, you will recall, the
great Slav, the last practicing Chris
tian, laid it down that you and I
and all such as puff the weed there
by convict ourselves of moral de
The argument was this: “One who
is not living as conscience demands,
one who lacks strength to reshape
his life,” seeks the unholy aid of
things which stupefy “to stifle the
■voice of conscience.”
To be laughed at? Well, dead
maggots are to be laughed at, but
living ones are to bo reckoned with.
And wo might have laughed, even
as you, last night, but this morn
ing in scanning the nows of the day
we chanced upon this:
Three sophomores at Linfield
College will be suspended for the
remainder of the school year for
smoking if today’s recommenda
tions of the honor council to the
faculty and administration is ac
cepted as it is certain to be.
No, we do not laugh.—B. J.
Envy the Fishes;
They Swim
OH, to be a fish!
A' fish, someone has remarked,
has the best chances of graduating
from this university. Not that he
may boast of great intellectual
prowess, but he can swim three
lengths of a tank of his stomach
and one on his back, and thereby
he fulfills a prime requisite for the
B. A. degree.
The fish might bo the source of
envy now for several seniors who
are being reminded that incompleted
physical education requirements, in
most cases failure to pass the swim
ming test, stand between them and
their degrees.
The merits of physical education
and the ability to swim aro evident.
But this, just as conjecture regard
ing the unimportance of degrees, is
beside the point. These considera
fions do not hide in any way the
silliness of a regulation that says
a man is not educated unless he has
exercised exactly so much, and is
able to swim so far. To make scho
lastic achievement, no matter how
distinctive, secondary to such a rul
ing is to make a joke of the uni
versity and the purpose for which
it supposedly exists.
Margaret Achterman, ex927, tells of
Life in Hydaburg, Alaskan Village
Surrounded by Water and Deep Forests, Indians
Find Interest in Fishing and Feasting
A pestilence in their home in
British Columbia drove the Hyda
Indians into Alaska, where they
settled in three villages. They want
ed a community center, but, not
being able to agree on any one of
the three, they formed a new set
tlement in 1911 and named it Hyda
burg, after their tribe, according to
Margaret Acterman, ex ’27, a mem
ber of Sigma Beta Phi, who return
ed to Eugene Saturday after teach
ing school in Hydaburg this year.
“In many ways the Hyda Indians
are like white people, and yet they
have a tendency to keep their old
diatoms,’’ she said. “They are very
fond of community feasts, known
as potlatches. Every once in a while
they have a controversy over witch
craft. If you want to insult an In
dian, call him a witch. The natives
thrash out all family affairs in
community meetings.
“They all speak English, except
a few of the very oldest. I had just
one beginner who could not speak
English, out. of fifteen. I taught the
kindergarten and the first and sec
ond grades.”
The village is on the west coast
of Prince of Wales Island, surround
ed on three sides by the waters of
Sukkwam Bay and on the fourth by
and almost inpenetrable forest of
apruee and hemlock. The village is
divided in the middle by a pictures
que trout brook. Sometimes she
and the three other white people
there would wade up the edge of the
creek into the forest, sit on a log
jamb, and fish. The brook runs
into the bay in front of the gov
ernment owned house where they
lived, and from the front window
could be seen across the bay, gi
gantic snow-capped mountains bo
bind which the sun set.
Sukkwam Village, on an island
across the bay, is deserted, but
there is a community house there
that is so old it was put together
with pegs instead of nails. For pil
lars there are two totem poles. In
the middle there is a fire box, with
a hole in the ceiling for a smoke
vent. Three of four totem poles are
out in front.
The Indians are devoutly relig
ious, according to Miss Achterman.
They have a Salvation Army corps
and a Presbyterian mission church,
with a half-breed minister. She de
scribed a basket-social given to
raiso funds for a now smoke stack
for the saw mill, at which the na
tives spread their snowy table
cloths on the floor; a storm that
arose while they were two hours out
from tho landing in the mail boat
during the Christmas vacations; and
a native wodding held at the church
and followed by a banquet in the
town hall, the food and service be
ing conventional American.
“The white people^ including the
four in the villngo aiul the pastor,
were honored by being seated at the
bride’s table. They had a wedding
cake decorated by an Indian, and
it was as pretty as any I’ve seen, ’ ’
she declared. “Whenever there is a
wedding or other holiday, they go
hunting. They were very generous
about bringing us halibut and veni
A seven-hour journey from Ilyda
burg in a gas fishing boat is Kla
wock, also on Prince of Wales Is
land. It is an older village, and
much moro typically Indian, being
inhabited by the Tlinket Indians.
Ketchikan is about 35 miles directly
east of Hydaburg, and there she
saw Agnes Coates Beck, ’25, and
Kate Pinneo, ’24.

The secret of success, or how the
Kappas keep their place at the head
of the grade list, is out. You see
it’s this way. Helen Davidson is
the grader for the Living English
Writers class which helps quite a
little bit since Helen herself is tak
ing the course as well as quite a
few of the other wearers of the key.
And Helen knows a good student
when she sees one. Hasn’t she been
at the head of the list all term? Her
sisters follow close at her Trench
heels, also. There it is.

is quite a writer, I think. For in

the paper about her meal ticket
she shows herself to be an artist

sity debater and orator and at pres
ent general manager of forensics,”
while in a second she says, “Jack
Hempstead, varsity debater for two
coars and general manager of for

Measles on Campus;
Annex Now Open
The measles fad which has brok
en out on the campus within the
last two weeks is so popular that,
according to Dr. Fred N. Miller,
University physician, the infirmary

merous patients. In order to insure
the best possible care for the sick
a trained nurse has been placed in
charge of the annex.

This Pen Must
Stay in Perfect Order
or we make it good without charge
The custom of sending Gifts to Graduates has
now been extended by general accord to include
those in the lower classes who have manifested suffi
cient industry to pass their final exams*
To know what to give, one needs but observe the
students’ own expressions of preference for the Parker
Duofold Pen and Pencil.
To have earned the favor of the younger generation
is our reward lor serving it with studied personalin
terest. We have lifted the frowns from student brows
[among others] by giving the world a writing pair that
are inspirations to work with and beauties to possess.
All those in favor of owning, or giving the finest
— whether for Graduation, Birthday or Wedding
Gifts, or for prizes at Bridge or Golf—will signify by
stepping in to the nearest Parker pen counter. The
first thing to look for is the imprint,“Geo. S. Parker,”
on the barrels. Then nobody will be disappointed.
Parker Duo fold Pencils to match the Pens:
Lady Duofold, $3; Over-size Jr., $3-50; "Big Brother” Over-size, $4

Degrees representing a wide variety of work,
and all of them qualifying the graduate to enter
the broad field of electrical communication.
For men of technical training, of course, and
for many others besides—salesmen, accoun

here is an industry in which America leads the
world, but which is only on the threshold of
greater things.
