To Sell Peace *
IN a bookstore window on Wil
lamette street two very different
books are offered for sale. Ono book
is “The Rovolt of Asia,” by Upton
Close. The other is “Aw Hell,” by
Clark Venable. Both books are scat
tered carelessly about the display
The first book makes its appeal

The other book is garnished with
firearms and bayonets, trench hel
mets and cartridge clips. And over
the whole collection is posted a
menacing German machine gun. One
might suppose Mars himself, after
smearing “Aw Hell” on the helmets,
bad just gone out for more paint.
Two well-cared-for German rifles
lay there, crossed uneasily. On the
breech of the machine gun balances
a bonk of “Aw Hell.” Various hel
mets stare back at one—empty in
side—“Aw Hell” outside.
A man approaches, rends the title
of the first and passes on. But the
next display halts him. Hero is a

What have we to offer beside tlio

you think of one object that will
cause men to stop and think serious

seems altogether too bad that the
book by Mr. Close and the cause of
peace should have no very adequate
emblem to arrest one’s attention.—
A Striking Scene
To the editor of the Emerald:
My dear sir:
I would like to draw your atten
tion to the sportsmanship of the
sophomore class, and the intelli
gence of the senior police—two
vague qualities of the undergrad
uate body which you might doubt.
After the Sophomores had lost
a perfectly unfair tug-of-war they
consented to spank the Erosh
in the traditional manner. Eor the
purpose of this operation one soph
omore selected a plank two inches
thick and eight inches wide. With
this plank it would be an easy mat
ter to break the back of a horse—to
say nothing of a robust camel. The
sophomore was capable of manipu
lating this unwieldy timber only be
cause of his exceeding high and
long arms which swung liko der
ricks over a blue sky. The first
dozen freshmen through that line
must have suffored. They received
the full impact of that plank.
One of the seniors, and it may be
noted that ho wore no letter mark
ing him as a member of the Order
j of the “O” and a sportsman, noticed
this lean sophomore with his plank,
and requested that the boy ex
change his magnificent paddle for
another of pot quite so great pro
portions. This was done; but the
emasculated, lath with which he
continued his slams, bangs, swats,
biffs, and swaeks was disappointing,
lie soon returned to the plank which
he had discarded at his feet. Vigor
came back to him. He seemed to
be healthy again. The senior again
noticed the plank, and asked that
it lie dropped. It was.
Then the senior exhibited what I
have interpreted to bo intelligence,
but which may have been only
chance. The senior removed the
plank to such a position that it was
separated entirely from the sopho
more. The sophomoro could not
reach it without missing a stroke.
This letter is to ask you to com
mend the senior police, and their
foresight in preventing the deaths
of several persons.
The Housing Problem
Editor of the Emerald: In the
May 10 issue of the Emerald there
was nn article on the new ruling of
the housing committee concerning
the housing of women in apartments.
The statement was made that, co
eds at Washington and California !
are not allowed to live in apart ’
ments unchaporoned. Someone was
certainly misinformed for we know, I
personally, girls at both Washing
ton and California who live in j
apartments, and know that they are J
no exceptions. It is rather the rule]
to live in apartments than not.'
There a re age rulings, of course.!
and we are entirely in favor of such I
restrictions. We also think that I
freshman women should not Vio al
lowed to live in apartments, but]
surely it is going too far to forbid
all girls to live in the way which
they often find the most eeonomi- ]
cal and satisfactory. There are,
many who are making their
way through school, and who would!
bo seriously hampered by such a'
It is practically impossible for
anyone but a freshman to get into
one of the halls, and a good many
girls would be left without a sat
isfactory place to live.
A girl cannot have an adult chap
erone living with her all her life,,
and when a girl is old enough to be *
a sophomore in college, she surely J
should be old enough to live in an
apartment with other girls. One of
the chief advantages of going away
to college is supposed to be tliai
students learn to be independent
and to rely on themselves. Such a
regulation as the one proposed
seems to be ridiculously childish.
Why make rules which restrict girls
more than if they were not attend
ing sehoolf One girl here has sup
ported herself and lived in an apart
ment for several years, and now she
must have a chaperone.
The housekeeping suites approved
by the housing committee are often
more expensive and nearly always
less desirable than those the girls
can get when allowed free choice.
Wo can easily see why some girls
should not live in apartments, but
the present requirements of the
written consent of their parents and
the approval of the dean of women
should be sufficient. The dean of
women should be able to judge girls
well enough to know when to give
or withhold her approval, and all
girls in the University should
not be forced to give up their
apartments on account of a few who
can not act sensibly.
We feel the action taken by the
housing committee to be utterly un
justified, and sincerely resent the
extreme restrictions imposed bv it.

Yesterday seems to have heen an
all around honorary day, and judg
ing from the many lists in the Em

who were slighted.

You know, I suspect that there is ,
more to this business of honorary
elections and initiations than we
outsiders may suspect. Somehow I
can’t help but believe that most of
the initiations are timed to come
near the first of the month when
the bank account is fattest.

G. D. Strayer of Columbia
Included in Summer
For the first time, the needs of
all education students, graduates
and undergraduates, will try to be
filled in the Oregon summer session,
according to H. D. Sheldon, dean of
the school of education.
“Anyone who needs special ad
vanced courses in education will be
able to get them. Many of these
courses, particularly some of those
to be taught by educators like
George D. Strayer of Columbia,
haven’t been given here before,”
“Begular courses required for
teacher’s certificate will be avail
able also. Those students who need
education courses can get them all
except supervised teaching.”
Dean Sheldon’s first experience
in summer work was at Stanford’s
first session, the year after his
graduation. That was back in 1897
when summer session work was com
Summer schools really began
about 1890, said the dean. The Uni
versity of Chicago was the institu
tion that had most to do with their
initial success. It started a summer
quarter and obtained outstanding
professors from other institutions,
particularly from the south. Even
today, Chicago is the center for
graduate instruction in summer.
More and more, the summer ses
sions became an accepted thing un
til now practically all universities
The session at Clark University
in Worehester, Massachusetts, where
Dean Sheldon taught and studied
in the summer of 1899, is one he re
members most vividly. The work
was new, advanced, and very inten
sive; indeed, the term lasted only
two weeks, and the lectures started
at seven in the morning and ended
at eleven at night.
“This is the only chance for many
students to get in touch with prom
inent thinkers in education from all
over the country,” declared Dean
Sheldon in discussing the advan
tages of Oregon summer work for

three courses makes it possible for
the student to apply himself with
more concentration and centraliza
