'HIS is the open season on col

arc being analyzed and belittled on
numerous counts. Legitimate
grounds for criticism arc many, but
the castigations too often contain
little thought or purpose. Serious,
well-considered criticism is of con
ceivable valuo to the universities;
critical self-analysis especially. But
when the practice descends to the
level of a pupular sport, becomes
the avocation of every one who has
either a personal plaint or a com
mand of invective, and then is cli
maxed with a misconception of a
university’s function, we protest
the name of law; and of all sorts
A Tragic Story of
Mother and Son
Too often the criticism comes
from a newly-created alumnus who
finds to his great discomfort that
his college work has not fitted him
for a job and that his degree does
not guarantee him employment. Ho
doesn’t consider that he may have
.made a mistake in choosing to at
tend a university instead of a
trade-school; rather he furnishes
fine newspaper or magazine copy
by telling how higher education has
“unfitted” him. Tragic, of course.
Writing in a similar tone, a mo
ther of a college graduate, using
her son as the mean, concludes, in
an article appearing in the Wom
an's Koine Companion, that the ty
pical college graduate is a snob, a
loafer and a waster. (Wo should
explain, perhaps, that we are not
regular readers of this publication.
Our material is drawn from an ab
stract. submitted by the publisher).
Her son, wo learn, will soon grad
uate from one of the great eastern
To her great alarm she learns that
he has been turned from ‘ ‘ a good
demoerat into a bit of a snob.” The
horribleness of this situation be
comes evident when she postulates
that snobbery ‘‘is a thing he must
outgrow if he seeks business suc
cess. ' ’
Add another count, against the
colleges on the young man's “in
flated notion of his present eco
nomic value, lie is a dawdler and
shrinks from ‘hustle.’ I cannot
imagine his plunging into a job
and working his head off to make
good, lie has a confirmed habit of
The son is further cursed with
“rigid and extravagant standards
of dress” and “extravagant and
wasteful ideas of hospitality.” Mo
tlier says “he must learn that he
can’t relieve boredom by spending
from $50 to $50 on one girl for one
party.” And then “living in a man
made college world” has imposed
on him ‘‘a double standard not only
of morality but of propriety.”
All of which is very sad, but this
2300 Show Interest
In Summer Sessions
The Oregon summer school ses
sion is receiving much popularity
for 2300 names are on the mailing
list for the summer session bulletin.
These requests are from practically
A leaflet is now ready for print
in which living accommodations for
the summer are listed. This is of
a particular interest to many of
the coming summer students since
many are bringing their families.
Teachers and school administra
tors are in the majority. Education,
English and history are the most
mother, we believe, is blaming the
college for the failure of the mis
fits who never should have come.
If she wished to give her son the
kind of education that would have
imbued him with the spirit of
“hustle,” if she relates everything
to “business success,” she should
blame herself for ever having sent
her boy to a university. He would
have done better in getting into a
job where ho would not have
learned extravagance and where ho
might never have known the blessed
habit of “academic leisure,” which
his mother unfortunately views as
nothing less than a curse.
Perhaps her son is typical of the
average graduate who develops a
bit of snobbishness and nothing
else during his four years, but she
is doing the idea of higher educa
tion an injustice by making this
type a measure of its worth. If a
university course does not stir one
to mental activity and curiosity it
has admittedly failed of its purpose.
This, however, is not an indictment
of the idea of higher education but
of the system that indiscriminately
accepts all who care to comic.
This mother has made out a case
for restricting entranco, and for
the exclusion not only of the stud
ent incapable of assimilating learn
ing but also for the man who is
looking for an employment agency.

4Asia and the Pacific’
UTS the course in ‘Asia ami the
Pacific’ to be dropped from
the curriculum” asks a news story
in the Emerald.
We hope not. It would be unfor
tunate if the only course that deals
with the social, economic, political
and cultural developments of Asia
and the Orient should be dropped
for want of sufficient student in
terest. No bettor reason can be ad
vanced for continuing it, and cer
tainly none more pregnant with
meaning at this time, than that of
Professor Walter Barnes:
‘‘It may be better to study the
Orient before a military crisis arises
out of Chinese confusion or Japan
The world’s attention is now cen
tered on the East, and will be for
years. The term “the revolt of
Asia,” used by Josef Washington
Hall in liis talk, yesterday, is ap
parently a statement of fact. The
Western failure to understand the
Eastern mind and Eastern culture is
largely responsible for the present
crisis, and before any readjust
ments are possible, peaceful read
justments, the understanding that
is now lacking must come.
The course in “Asia and the Pa
cific” might not offer the under
standing necessary to the solution
of the present difficulties, but it
offers a means of gaining at least
a n appreciation o f aspirations,
backgrounds, causes and the direc
tion solutions must take.
To us it seems that no course is
more vitally needed in the curricu
lum and ttiat none should have a
stronger appeal to students than one
which covers this field.

also shown in the coaching course.
