(riving a Name
To the Dog
Our correspondent quotes: “Give
a dog a bad name and, hang it.”
Yes, but if tin1 ring lias no name,
what then? In this instance the
dog “was far too valuable to be ig
nored, so we nicknamed him
In section II, page (I of the com;
mittee on superior stiudent.s and
honor courses report, the organiza
tion of honors work is delegated to
a council on honor students, a label
duly plastered on where honors re
forms were specifically intended, by
the editorial in q nest ion. This led to
the belief that the council on etc.
was subsidiary to the committee on
. . . Our error.
But the dog still lacks a name
and we are heartily in accord with
our correspondent in the conviction
that “Junior College” is not only
misleading blit also -well, a little
puppjfish for a University dog.
Since this poor caninie seems to
have suffered bifurcation, our best
offer is “Corlierus” the two-headed
guardian dignified by Dante.
Keep the Heap
Off the Campus
President Clarence (look Little
refuses to be worried by the light
enrollment of freshmen at the Cni
versity of Michigan this year. When
the roster of matriculants fell some
HOC short of last year’s mark, the
“failure” was accusingly attributed
to the university ban on student
owned automobiles. But President
Little is unperturbed; he comments,
“If enrollment has decreased be
cause of the automobile restriction,
L am glad of it.”
Glad the students are ista.ying
away from Michigan ? It smacks of
heresy; page the Greater Michigan
Committee! But those who remem
ber Dr. Little’s visit to Oregon last
year will be impressed with his re
mark. They became acquainted with
his intellectual as well as his physi
It is true that the Michigan 'situ
ation is an inexact analogue to Ore
gon. Xo doubt cars are a more
legitimate asset where transporta
tion otherwise is problematical.
Begulatiou can lie satisfactorily
made for student owned cars here
as it has at the University of Kan
sas, where day-parking on campus
streets is prohibited and permits
are required for campus automo
Bat all this is beside the observa
tion of President Little that, in gen
eral, student-car combinations are
undesirable additions to the univer
sity, and that the loss of persons
ho blind to real opportunities as to
be daunted by such a restriction is
>io crying matter.
Last year Oregon made an impo
tent gesture at discouraging canipVis
car ownership. The horde came
back with reinforcements. Narrow
streets are all but impassable dur
ing the day and nimbleness is the
only security in crossing the Thir
teenth street fhormi|jlif!am And
Logically, the next step will be
restrictive legislation. Prohibitions
will be made that will be onerous

classroom with its lessons and lec

supplement to it. Most university
professors admit the value of activi

time from his studies for the pur
suit of the honors to be gained
through taking part in activities.

The success of worthwhile student
activities at Oregon is dependent
upon the quality of those who Hire
