Dads Denied Sedative
By State Law
SPEAKING of the meeds of the
University, how about free
smoking? Today’s correspondent
points out that the fathers who
build universities are prohibited from
smoking in them and lie illustrates
his contention with the nicotine ban
which kept the air clear at the
Drad’s day banquet.
“Our Bads were invited down
here as guests of the University and
as such should have been allowed
the extent of the privileges possible,”
ho protests. “Instead, they wore
deprived of one of the most satisfy
ing and cravod habits of the ma
jority of men today—that of smok
The smoking proscription, we may
assure our dissenter, was in no way
an attempt at reform, much leas
at persecution by University au
thorities. Indeed the matter was
entirely outside the jurisdiction of
University officials for the Oregon
law definitely forbids smoking in
such state buildings.
There have been special instances
during conference when tho restric
tion has boon suspended for the
time. And no doubt the occasion of
tho banquet would have warranted
this consideration for tho fathers
assembled if the meeting had been
As it was, the improvised banquet
room was arranged under the same
roof with the priceless collection of
Oriental art objects which forms
the Murray Warner Art Museum.
Jeopardizing these treasures with
fire is unthinkable. Hence the
Succor for Scholars;
Politicians Fare Well
<<X7’()U can hear a politician all
right, but you can’t hear a
scholar,” remarked a front row
habitue after the assembly address
in tho Woman's building Thursday
The undersized audienco that
perched on the foremost edge of its
chairs in an effort, to catch a stray
syllable now and then will be grati
fied to learn that the University is
contemplating the purchase of an
:y.'.v ’.iticr similar to the one rented
for the Bad’s day program. And
the other half who stay away be
cause they can never hear what
goes on in the Woman’s building
may soon augment the handful of
freshmen and regulars in attendance.
It’s very unfortunate that such
information as Br. Muhl brought to
the students should dissipate into
the rope-fest ooned vault of what
wo brazenly call our auditorium. And
it is still more regrettable that
speakers must be subjected to this
frequent humliatiou. belief cannot
be too speedily obtained.
Harmony Not Always
Worth the Price
BECAUSE lie dared to criticize
the manner in which persons in
charge of various student activities
were discharging their dutes, Miar
ion A. Zioncheck, president of the
student body at the University of
Washington, lias been the storm
center of the campus at Seattle dur
ing the past week.
The verbal battle surged back
and forth with each side making
charges and counter-charges. In his
zeal to set affairs in which ho con
sidered to be the proper form, Mr.
Zioncheck widened his attack so*as
to include all who ventured to criti
cize liis' attacks bn the graduate
manager, accusing the Daily of col
oring its reports of the controversy
and of showing favoritism.
Thursday night was chosen as
the time when a group of disguised
men sought to cool the president’s
ardour by dusking him in the cold
waters of Eako Washington, after
beating him and clipping his hair.
Such actions do not settle ques
tions of policy. While Mr. Zion
check made free with the accusa
tions he hurled against his enemies
with little if any pretence at di
plomacy, the ducking at tile hands
of unknown persons was a cowardly
act. As is so often the case under
similar circumstances, it is likely
to be found that the men who un
dertook to punish the outspoken stu
dent body official were not imme
diately concerned with the squab
ble but felt it incumbent upon them
to assume the role of avengers.
Even if Mr. Zioncheck should de
cide to refrain from continuing the
argument, which would seem un
likely, such a course would not bo
wholly satisfactory, although, it is
evidently the desire of the valorous
men in masks. The only satisfactory
settlement which can be made is to
prove the president’s charges to be
either true or false.
Our college years are supposed to
form a period in which we prepare
ourselves for life. In doing so, we
are allowed to conduct our affairs
in what should bo the best manner
permitted by our abilities. Criticism
of our actions is mn essential part
of the process.
The student officer who sees what
he believes to bo faults in the way
in which the paid student body
servants and other student officials
carry out their duties and then fails
to criticize them is failing in his
| own duty. In turn, he should bo
submitted to honest and sincere
criticism at the hands of his con
One who aspires to hold office
must expect to be exposed to criti
cism. If he can not give fair and
honest consideration to the opinions
of others, lie is not the man for the
job. Outsiders to a dispute should
take care to remain neutral, or at
least observe the rules of decent
Harmony, arrived at after mutual
recognition of interests, is desirable;
but harmony resulting from spine

Freedom for the Fag Urged
To the Editor:
After attending the Pad’s Pay
banquet ami noticing the special
edition of the Emerald which was
offered shortly after, setting forth
in a conspicuous manner the many
needs of the University, I wish to
express my feelings toward a por
tion of the program of the evening.
Our Pads were invited down here
as guests of the University and as
sui'h should hitvo boon allowed the
extent ot' the privileges possible, 1 li
st cail, they were deprived of one of
the most satisfying and craved
habits of the majority of men to
day-that of smoking. Although
many of the visitors partook of their
allotment of nicotine on the campus
there was absolutely no smoking at
the long meeting of Saturday eve
Those of you who do not smoke
probably will fail to appreciate this,
but had you seen the rush j'or to
baceo at the completion of the pro
gram you would luivo wondered at
the adherence to the 110-smoking
tradition that prevented tlie “bays"
from-' lighting up’’ sooner. From

Tradition Objected To
You will say that to refrain from
smoking for two hours is no hard
ship; it is not entirely the actual
abstaining to which I object, but
especially the one of many admin
istrative rules, or traditions, if you
would rather, that causes the ab
Two yours ago, in an assembly
lecture, President Wilbur, of Stan
ford University, stated “The no
smoking on the campus tradition is
ancient and has outlived its useful
ness. Smoking on the campus is
no different than smoking else
where.” This remark shows a
sensible understanding of a much
discussed question in American
higher educational institutions.
| From the mental standings of
I smokers of today it is pb, a to see
that the habit is not in any way
related to tlieir moral qualities.
They enjoy the effect of tobacco on
! their nervous system even though
the final results may be harmful. The

SSmOKO 111 iJlHMUlgS
Tradition, liki' any thing else, can
I ho overemphasized. When wo realize
the amount ot' smoking carried on
in and about the Oregon campus,
both by students and faculty, during
the summer sessions with no appar
ent regard to any rule on the mat
ter, we wonder, after all, whether
or not there is a popular tradition
that needs to bo upheld. Also in
spite of the rule, both students and
faculty smoke in buildings during
the regular campus session. Tra
ditions that are not adhered to
unanimously are unnecessary and
should be either abolished or amend
ed to meet popular approval.
1 do not wish to suggest an en
tire abolition of this old custom but
do think it would be much more
satisfactory were it left to the dis

heads whether or not they could al

Cliff Horner, erstwhile guard, is
proving to be a shifty youngster at
forward, and on defense plays any
thing but a waiting game. Ho
should find particular .joy in mixing
in with the Aggie freshmen. Harold
dinger, probably the most consist
ent performer on Spike’s maple
court aggregation, should make his
presence disconcerting to the young
Beavers at frequent intervals dur
ing the scramble.
Paul Walgren will probably play
more of a defensive game for the
frosh, as a safety, in case the rooks
show too much offensive inclina
tion. Gene Eberhart at center will
bo the usual offense threat. Eber
hart usually looks better charging

when he is compelled to draw back
with his teammates to help defend
his own end of the court.

the first five closely and are likely
to get a crack at the rooks before
