Wants Unpaid Coach
Till? attainment of uniform, ex
cellence in various fields |>f|
activity is impossible, fcio it is the
common procedure of the wise to
concentrate attention on a particu
lar phase that rests Inca rest t'he
center of their range of capabilities
and most intense interests.
In its grosser forms, this principle
appears distorted in the malady of
over-specialization. Undue empha
sis results in the abnormal develop
ment of one quality at the expense
of the others. Ami the result lacks
balance. All this holds true for
either an individual or a university.
• The editors of the Yale Alumni
Weekly believe that the resignation
of Tad Jones as coach is ait oppor
tunity to return to the old system
• of unpaid coaching there. The
series of athletic reverses that Yale
has suffered has convinced the
thoughtful editors of the Weekly

interest at Yale would lie bene

spirit and in undergraduate self
reliance by such a course,” the
They believe that the time has
come to return football to its place

their contention is attested by their
sports record. Abandon football.1

With the lower division reform in
actual operation, facilities for goug
ing the aptitudes of students will be
improved and, indirectly, this one
relatively inconsequential fdqtor
will affect athletics favorably. The
danger of team demoralization
through last-minute ineligibles will
be greatly minimized.
It may be that Mr. Earl is un
duly optimistic regarding the effi
cacy of the change as an incentive
to higher general scholarship. And
perhaps he is right. But he has laid
low the bugbear of the sacrifice of
athletics, and tlioso who eyed the
innovation askance on that account
will be heartened.
Comes Once More
HOMECOMING week-end is ap
proaching rapidly. Soon the
alumni will be flocking in to Eu
gene for the annual get-together.
The freshman bonfire, the foot
ball rally, the big game, the campus
luncheon, and the dances will take
up the. old grads most of the time.
Between events, there will be re
unions. Alumni will tell tales of
other days in the University’s his
tory. They will laugh heartily
over some incident from out of the
past and the listening undergradu
ate will wonder what is so funny as
to create such merriment.
Homecoming is a time set aside
for the alumni of the University.
The student body acts as the host.
The standing of the student body in
the eyes of the lujnni is to be great
ly influenced by the quality of the
week-end spent here by the gradu
ates and former students.
At the present time the student
body is in disrepute with a small
but active section of the great
| alumni body because of the showing
made at the California game in
Portland. The situation must be
changed, therefore it is imperative
that the students co-operate with
the Homecoming directorate in
every way to make the week-end one
to be remembered.
If each and every event on the
program is made to be a success,
adverse criticism of campus spirit
| will be left without a leg to stand
on. The committees can not do Hie
| task alone. Everyone is needed to
'clear the record. Co-operation will

McCEOSKEY IN PARADISE
To tin' Editor:
I am elected to write tlio first lot -
tor from the debate ti’imi to the
Emerald, so prepare yourself. Wo
will try to write one a week, al
though you will probably not re
ceive them that often.
We arrive in Honolulu tomorrow
morning at 8 o'clock, and although
our debate 1110ro titles not take place
until next Friday, we have plenty
to do in prepiantion for it.
We have had wonderful weather
since we left Sail l-'ruucisco, except
for the lirst night out, which was
lather rough. However, none of us
has bet'll sea sick, although we did
feel a little upset at first. Now the
sea is as cahu as a lake, there is lit
tle or no wind, and it is hotter than

that. 1 see where 1 try to exchange
some collegiate cords, knickers, ete.,
for a linen suit in Honolulu.
’l'liis liuut, tlie Korea Main, of the
Nippon Vuseu Kuisha line, a Japan
eso company, is certainly an interest
ing place. Only about 10 per cent
of the passengers are Americans,
ami the rest, while mostly Japanese,
include I'hinese, Russians, Jews.
Dutch, and Javanese. Kveu a native
• j of San Salvador, its new consul geu
■ oral to Japan, is aboard. We have
certainly had some interesting con
versations with these people Jap
anese newspaper men, Javanese cof
■ fee planters, and even a Russian
i Communist, tty the way, I found
a practical use for some of my col
lege training in my talk with him.
It happeued that 1 had taken a
course in “Recent Russia,'’ and
when he talked at great length about
I the "old regime," the new Soviet
system, the Revolution of limb, etc.,
I was not entirely ignorant. I
wish now, though, that I had studied
the blooming course a little harder.
