For Makers
Of Worlds
WANTED: for Oregon, a liberal
This is not a call for a society
for the propagation of contempor
ary smartness or for a gathering of
disciples of the saturnine Henry
Louis Mencken, but for the organ
ization of those students in whom
education has awakened the spark
of liberalism.
A professor at McGill university,
we recall, defined the liberal arts
college as “a place to brood rad
icals.” This we might interpret to
mean that if four years in college
does the student any good at all ho
will not leave to face the world
with the spirit of the proverbial
meek lamb and accept everything
that exists as good simply because
it exists.
It is unfortunate that the young
man just out of collcgo whp had
great ideas for remaking the world
should have been relegated to the
joke column along with Ford auto
mobiles and prohibition. He has, of
course, learned by this time that it
is much easier to travel with the
pack over the usual path of “get
ahead.” This may be the explana
tion for the collapse of the “revolt
of youth,” which Norman Thomas
recently mourned.
“A great deal of skepticism is
wholesome,” said Mr. Thomas. “But
we cannot afford the luxury of
cynical pessimism while we cling to
And inasmuch ns we cling to life
and are willy nilly thrown out into
the world as it is, it might bo well
if those students who are loath to
give up their notions for remaking
the world, who want to see and fight
their way beyond the humbug, who
refuse to bo stricken speechless in
the presence of the big, cold world,
and who are not ready to accept as
superior that which is because it is
—it would bo well if these persons
were grouped together for mutual
stimulation and stimulation of their
Discussion groups probably come
close to this spirit in general, but
not in particular. The liberals, and
by this we mean only the sincere,
have a definite place in the life of
a university. It is for them to keep
in touch with the state of liberal
thought on and off the campus and
to make themselves heard.
Through the college press we have
seen the workings of such groups
at other institutions, and they have
almost uniformly been successful in
leavening the ideas of the college
mass and gaining willing ear for
their beliefs. Their interests extend
not only to the four college years
but also in the establishment of
ideas and mental processes that will
carry on, into the alumni period.
In other colleges wo witness stu
dents in liberal clubs concerned no
less with matters extra-mural than
intra-mural. They apply their edu- I
cation to problems, national and in
ternational—to American interven
tion in Nicaragua, to the awakening
of China, to the principles involved
in a Sacco-Vanzetti case as well as
to making themselves heard when
attempts to restriction of thought,
of faculty or students, is attempted
in their own institutions.
If education’s function is the de
velopment of freedom of thought,
and we believe it is, a liberal club
has a place on every campus—and
on this campus.
At Last
“T?00TBALL should bc lcft
-I1 alone” is the more or less in
dignant pronouncement of the Guard
in last night’s edition, taking issue
with this paper’s editorial of Tues
We are all wrong, it seems, in be
lieving that there is any danger in
the present magnitude of the sport,
and in the present dishonest viola
tion of amateur standards. Such
things are to be condoned, thinks
the Guard, meanwhile blasting the
Emerald and its followers for their
meddlesomeness with the terribly,
terribly opprobrious term “intelli
gentsia.” Incidentally, the Guard
editor numbers this paper’s follow
ers as “twenty-five students out of
3,000.” Wrong again, mister. They
number thirty-one.
Football is the most popular sport
of the age from the point of view
of both spectators and players, says
the Guard, ns though that were suf
ficient reason for making it one of
the most important phases of the
educational program. The same thing
is true of movies, yet nobody has
yet suggested starting a movie lot
on the campus. Perhaps the Guard 1
The Guard believes also that such
recommendations as having students
play football only two years, hav
ing teams coached by undergraduate
players and eliminating intercollegi
ate competition will ruin the game.
The Guard lias forgotten that foot
ball was a good game for years be
fore the presoit big business and
high-powered coaching methods be
came prevalent. And it will be a
good game after they are gone.
Perhaps there won’t bo the high!
standard of skill, but the struggle
and light will be there just the same.
Finally, the Guard condones the
dishonest professionalism on the J
grounds that all other sports have .
elements of dirtiness. What a nice, i
progressive attitude! Come on, boys, !
let’s all be dirty, everybody’s doing
So far as we are concerned, per- |
haps the athletes deserve pay. Lord •
knows the competition has grown so
great that they have to sweat for j
whatever little reward they get. !
For the athlete, it is no longer play.
It is work. Therefore,'-if reduction ,
in emphasis proves impractical, why ,
not put him on an openly profession- |
al basis and make the sport, not a
part of the university, but simply an
income-getting enterprise for its fi
nancial benefit?
The Guard editori.nl represents ‘
, , . , k
merely the sporting man s interest1
in the matter, llut after all, it is !
the university’s interests that I
should be considered.—11. A.

Glen Gorst sold some sheep to a
sheep buyer last week.—Klamath
Falls Herald. Sounds as though such
a thing might bo possible.
Everyone should start cultivat

the best of condition for “Creole
Moon” this week end.
Since this will bo the first legiti
mate attraction to play Eugene in
some time there should be some
very efficient demonstrations by
eoughers who have been deprived of
their pleasure.

partment, was chairman of the con- j
test; the Reverend Duncan Cameron,
of Cottage Grove, Doctor Hall,

BEX: Last day: Ben Lyon in
“High Hat,” with Mary Brian, in

danger; the cast is headed by many
