Shows Regulation Need
Automobile drivers of high
and low degree who returned to
find an official invitation attached
to the wheels of their ears parked
on Thirteenth street yesterday are
indignant. Anyway some of the
fourteen tagged are, and they arc
vituperating everyone from the
police to the top of University of
On investigating the alleged mass
attack of the Eugene police force
on the University student body, the
inquirer discovered this regulation,
which was passed by the city at
the University administration’s re
quest last month:
“It shall be unlawful for the
driver of any vehicle to park or
leave standing upon Thirteenth ave
nue in the city of Eugene, between
Onyx street and Kincaid street, at
any time between 8 o’clock a. m.
and fi o’clock p. in. of each day such
The ordinance was asked as a
protection for students crossing the
street and perhaps was occasioned
by a couple of minor accidents that
occurred last year in this popular
loitering area. It is also pointed
out, that with a row of parked
autos along each curb and a bus or
truck in the middle, an iron nerve
is required for a driver to thread
the precarious route without mishap.
Welfare of the students, the pri
mary avowed purpose, is thus sub
stantiated by the consideration of
safety to motorists.
The problem of where to park
cries out for solution. The nico
tino tree parking station often is
jammed with cars from morning till
night. University street, during
class hours, is almost always nearly
impassable. And Kincaid and Onyx
are both too far away and too
treacherous to be feasible. Where
H is clearly a case of further re
striction or more central automobile
havens of refuge like the nicotine
court, which serves the library and
administration congestion but is not
adequate for the casual demand
which formerly used the street. The
postponement, of student ear regu
lation is temporary. Other institu
tions have clamped down the lid
rigorously, and the situation here
should serve as a handwriting on
the wall. The dignity of student
self-government demands that the
student body determines its diffi
culties at least one jump ahead of
an administrative ukase. And, in
tho meantime, additional parking
area space would help.
!n Dollars Needed
LAST Saturday ’s Emerald carried
a story to tho effect that the
Oregon round-the-world debaters
would be stranded when they
readied New York this week. The
junior class recommended that the
profit derived from Junior Shine
Hay be used to help defray tho de
baters’ expenses until they could
obtain the guarantees due them
from scheduled debates in this coun
try. A number of the leading stu
dent officials on the campus ex
pressed their opinion that ’•some
thing should be done.’’
Tho three men are now in New
York and to date the only evidence
that anything whatsoever has 'been
done by the student officials is con
tained in tho approved statements
U. S. C\, Los Angeles, Feb. tld.—
(P.I.P.)—More than 11(3,000 people
have watched Coach Leo Callaud’s
University of Southern California
basketball team in its six games in
the Pacific coast conference, accord
ing to figures released through tho
Associated Student’s offices at the
made by Fred West in this morn
ing’s Emerald to the effect that the
three touring debaters* had been ex
travagant in spending money on
personal wants; therefore they
should try and raise money from
The three men who have been
representing tho University in all
parts of the world have been doing
a valuable service and deserve all
the support that can be possibly
given them in their undertaking.
Prof. J. If. Horner gives a suffi
cient statement as to why their fi
nances are as they are at present.
It is inconsistent that the student
body should unmurmuringly continue
to give financial aid to sports which
do not pay their way, and at the
same time allow tho stranding of
the men who have carried out the
biggest single piece of work to bo
undertaken in years by Oregon un
There have been instances in the
past when special collections have
been made from fraternities so that
certain athletes could go to track
meets. Then again, money was
raised for the benefit of two Ore
gon tennis stars who were stranded
in the east a summer or two ago.
We do not belittle the worth of
athletes and athletics to tho Uni
versity, but we do believe that the
debaters are entitled to the same
care and consideration. Prof. Hor
ner has explained that what is
wanted is not a donation but a loan
which will be paid from tho guar
antee funds to come from scheduled
debates. Surely the council has
had the matter called to its atten
tion sufficiently to warrant tho
taking of the necessary action.
Worthy of Support
THE question of how to soil
enough student body member
ship curds mid thus defray the ex
penses incurred by student body
activities is proving to be h tartar
on the campus at the University of
California at Eos Angeles.
A student assembly was almost
unanimous in voting to buy the
tickets, but when it came to the
matter of actually making the pur
chase the purse strings were tight
ened. After five months have passed,
29 living organizations have not re
ported a 10(1 per cent sale of the
pasteboards. The next move, sug
gests the Daily Bruin, will be to
secure the approval of the regents
and make the buying of member
ship cards a part of the entrance re
j Oregon students have long since
become accustomed to contributing
their bit toward the support of stu
dent body affairs along with the
various other fees exacted from
them. Few consider it an unjust
practice. The attendance would not
bo so largo were it necessary to
purchase a ticket each time one de
1 sired to attend a game or a con
cert, a situation which would make
necessary either higher prices or
the abandonment of the program.
A program of activities embrac
ing sports events, concerts and lec
tures fills a needed function in the
life of a university. The successful
operation of such a plan is depend
ent on adequate financial support,
something which is best guaranteed
by hard and fast rules, (jranted that
there are drawbacks to compulsory
student body membership, we be
lieve that the worth of the end
justifies the means. —IV. 0.

Mr. I. Scream Cohn, author of the
| "Angle Worm’s Revenge,” at a late
hour today was trying to recollect
1 the last chapter of the serial that
he devoured when overcome by
hunger in the College Side Tuesday.
Witness claim that he became
alarmed when he failed to wipe the
coiroe stains oil' his chin and ac
j cused the waitress of feeding him
hc-rse liniment. She denied this and
said sho didn’t know what it was
but that it wasn’t liniment.
Mr. Cohn remembered that if the
papers wore returned, the villain
would tear up the child, but he was
not sure whether Tin Pan Pan, the
dog, jumps through the window at
the villain's throat or comes down
the chimney like Santa Claus and
bites off ono of his garters.
The giui in the corner was not
loaded, but Mr. Cohn seemed to
think that Tin Pan Pan staggered
out through the door with two shots
in him, waving an empty bottle. He
said the part where I. Wiggle, the
worm, was tossed into the sausage
grinder ended in a lot of bologna.
