Working Way
Doesn’t Pay
FIGURES from the registrar’s of
fice show that more than three
fourths of all students on the camp
us are to some degree financially in
dependent. Income from part-time
jobs is a usual method of defraying
some of the cost of education at
Experimentation with arrange
ments for alternating remunerative
work and study has not been lack
ing. Antioch college is foremost in
this field with an oscillating pro
gram, carefully balanced, which pro
vides that work periods intersperse
those of academic attention. Stu
dents support themselves under this
system, caste lines are obliterated,
practical discipline is maintained.
rl'here is little of the country club
about the institution.
At Oregon the self-supporting stu
dent works when he must and
studies when ho may. Curricula are
not designed in his favor as they are
at Antioch where the entire student
group participates. Of his statis
tics, Mr. I’allett says, “. . . students
who must make their own way in
life realize the value of university
training enough to actually earn it
at u sacrifice.”
The Emerald inclines to the opin
ion that students who are self-sup
porting in many cases are probably
not realizing full value. Ami fur
thermore, besides the personal handi
eap of scanty preparation, they tend
to be a depressive on the class as a
whole; an overworked man's atten
tion is too natch averted and ho is
not at his best cither physically or
The courage of many entirely self
supporting students is much more to
be commended than their wisdom.
And it should be / seriously ques
tioned if the University does not do
itself as well as the student body ap
injustice in allowing him to carry
full-time work.

This is the good word from the
Isis of Oxford as reported in the
New Student:
‘‘Oxford is to he filmed in order
to acquaint mankind with what Ox
ford stands for; what Oxford is and
has been; to set forth in moving pic
turrs the essential spirit of Ox
As all Amerieau students will al
ready ruefully have guessed, the ve
hicle for this altruistic portrayal of
the “essential spirit of Oxford” is
a scenario adapted from a trivial
novel of twenty years ago. "A sen
timental love story,” snorts the in
censed Isis, “about a young don,
•with the inevitable ending on the
chancel steps.”
Of course we sympathize with Ox
ford students in their futile protest
against “the latest atrocity.” But
we cannot help being eager to view
this new marvel of cincmaphoto
graphy. Tlie “essential spirit” of a
great university will lie isolated,
captured, imprisoned in a , slender
celluloid ribbon!
We only wonder that better dis
ciplined—more tangible—spirit than
Oxford’s was not chosen. There has
been some mistake we arc convinced,
but it may be that spirit photo
graphs quite as well in English fog
as it would in the Hollywood sun
shine. Anyway, majors in technical
training for the motion picture in
dustry at U. 8. C. should not feel
too disconsolate. In college spirit
pictures they will have a wealth of
material for research and senior
theses. *
T hunks giving
Is Anticipated
\ S IS THE custom, the president
hus duly 'set aside the last
Thursday of November as a day in
which to “consider the manifold
blessings granted to us.”
With that day but a week off, stu
dent plans as to how it is tq be ob
served are already will formulated.
Most of them will spend Thanks
giving day and the week-end fol
lowing in giving- the homo folks a
treat. Some will visit with friends
and relatives. Some will remain on
the campus and do as best they can
to enjoy the vacation.
How will these young college folk
give, thanks for the “manifold
blessings” which they have been
permitted to enjoy ? Will they do
as much as give thanks?
As youngsters they were regaled
with tales of how the hardy Pilgrim
fathers sallied forth into the woods
and shot down the wild turkeys
which were to decorate the festive
-boards; of how these same Pilgrims
Went to church on Thanksgiving
Day with the trusty blundnrbus
ready for use in self-defense.
The heroic tales aroused a desire
on the part of the modern youth to
emulate the early colonists as nearly
as possible in these civilized times;
and they did so in the most obvious
manner which was to partake lib
erally of all the good things placed
on the table.
As the. youngsters grow older and
reached high school age, some of
the glamour of the occasion was
missing. They no longer listened
to stirring stories but perhaps had
to tell them to younger brothers and
sisters. They began to overhear
the parents deciding flic momentous
question as to whether or not turkey
was to be had without too great a
strain on the family pocketbook.
Not a bad old custom, they may
have thought, yet somowhpt strange
that one must count his money to
sei- if he-can be thankful in the ac
cepted manner.
Now that these youngsters have
become university men and women,
what do they sav? They will not
be found uttering profuse thanks
for this and for that. They are too
much a part of the times to show
such sentiment.
I’niversity students are thankful
for the opportunities which have
been given them by their parents
and by the tax-payers of the state,
but they say nothing. Their code
demands silence.

To Determine
Term Grades for
AH (’inder Hopefuls
A track moit of all the aspiring
cinder uii’u will bo held near the
1‘iul of the term to determine tho
grades, states William L. Hayward,
head track mentor. At present track
is moving rather slow due to the
unsettled condition of the weather.
Material, for the present, is not
what is should be, asserts Hayward.
At the close of the ic -.ill si.is u
there will bo track men of experi
ence in tho ranks.
A round-robin track tourney will
bo liobl during tlie winter term in
which ilayward hopes to get a line
on tho mon for tho spring training
period. A good share of a track
moot can bo hold inside of tho pa
vilion. All the events except the
javelin and tho discuss can bo hold
on the maple floor.
Tho tourney will bo conducted in
such a way that nil teams will gct«
la moot a like number of times.
Competitive traiuing will bo tho big

We suppose in that ease lie will
almost have to change his famous
phrase to “I do not choose to whittle
in 1928.”
Harold “All-nite” Parker, local
boy who recently filed for a patent
on a new rumble seat. Harold knows
the great popularity of such seats
and also realizes how useless they
are in winter. In making his revol
utionary invention he has overcome
this objection but has not lost site
of the chief lures of rumble seats—
cramped position of occupants and
necessity to climb to get in. His
idea is merely to jam the back seat
of an ordinary sedan up against the
front seat and have the entrance
through a trap door in the top. This
satisfies the climbing instinct and
at the same time fills the demand
for uncomfortable riding.

A serenade during the past week
end, so late at night that there will
probably have to be a new law
against forenoon serenades, was un

sorority house. They sang any
songs they could think of at first,
but no response. Then they sang
the Pledge Song—no one stirred.
Then they sung the Star Spangled
