In Answer
To Our Prayer
AFffiVEST prayer went up
from the Emerald a couple of
months ago. Wc asked for a
restorativo for students subjected to
hours of anesthetic treatments in
academic lecture rooms each day;
something to dispell the intellectual
fogs rising out of tedious assign
ments, was our plea. Our prayer
has been heard; a lively University
bookshop in the embryo is the
The University Bookshelf just in
•augurated at the student Co-op store
is an adventure even as the Co-op
itself, a few years ago, was a hazard
taken by its founders. When the
Emerald followed up its prayer with
personal and practical attention to
the problem, it found the solution
already well-formed in the mind of
Marion McClain, the manager. The
control board was soon converted
to the .proposal, one unique in this
part of the country. Assistance and
suggestions in ordering storks came
from interested faculty members,
and liberal offers were tendered by
Portland literary dealers. A widely
varied and rich field was thus made
available for the intellectually cur
ious students suffering the twinges
of scholastic headache.
The Bookshelf, in all probability, j
will never need groan in protest at
the number of patrons it is sup
porting between floor and coiling.
It will not entice hordes of stu
dents, even fitted as it is with ash
frays and cushioned chairs. But
its sponsors hope and have every
reason to anticipate that it will
figure importantly in reducing the
appalling number of students who
pass in and out the college walls
without a glimpse of living as it
can be realized when it clearly un
derstands the written word.
Of course, the Bookshelf is yet
imperfect. It will grow fo satisfy
the increasing literary appetites of
its frequenters. The character of
its volumes can, in response to stu
dents desires, be more surely chosen.
But in the meantime we like our
literary rendezvous; new as it is,
wo find real comfort and quality
there. For all of this, the Emerald
returns thanks.
Spare These
Our Blushes
IF it may bo said that a newspaper
is able to appreciate flowers, the
Emerald is appreciative of all
bouquets which may be offered. It
is especially appreciative of such
floral offerings as do not give shel
ter to brickbats.
Further, just as with mortals, the
Emerald is inclined to harbor friend
ly feelings for those persons who
give voice to words of praise for the
Now, after hinting that something
nice has been said about the Em
erald, it would probably bo advis
able to tell what was said, by whom,
when, where, how and why. Before
divulging all of the details, how
ever, it .should be understood by all
that the compliment is not taken
from a solicited testimonial, but
came as a surprise—that is, it was
not expected at the particular time
it arrived.
Well, it’s this way. It will bo
remembered that Dean Esterly wont
to Boston last month anil attended
a meeting of deans of women from
colleges and universities from all
over the United States. Well, she
was in a different division of the
conference when Norman Studcr,
editor of the New Student, made
the remark, so didn’t hear him say
it, but some of those who did hear
him told her and she brought the
news back to Eugene with her. Thus,
Dean Esterly says that she was told
that Norman Studcr said that the
Harvard Crimson and the Oregon
Daily Emerald are the most influen
tial college newspapers in the United
That is the story. The public must
be served, so with blushing modesty
the news is published that all who
can might read. W. C.
We had always thought of trans
formations as miraculous happenings
having origin in mysterious influ
ences. Now that the ladies are again
turning to long hair, on occasions at
least, we learn that transformations
are bought and sold just like any
other commodity.
Book Shop
(Continued from page one)
warning:, it is rather hard lo pull
one’s self away without taking
along some little volume.
For several years McClain has
made an effort to keep a small
stock of general books, in addition
to the regular list' of texts, for the
benefit of students. The Oregon co
operative store was the first on the
l’aciiic coast to introduce this pol
icy, although this year a number
have followed the innovation and
several others plan to shortly. An
organization of college book store
managers, includes a dozen mem
bers—the regular Pacific coast con
ference schools and the University
of British Columbia in Vancouver,
Bellingham Normal in Washington,
and the State Teachers’ College at
San Jose, California.
The list of tlie thousand books
has titles from the classics, from
biography, poetry, drama, eritieism
and fiction. Glancing casually around
one can seo dozen of books such as
‘•Mother India,” the amazingly
frank and searching story by Kath
erine Mavo, which is being frowned
upon by tho educated Indians of
the United States; “The Portrait
Invisible,” Joseph Gullomb’s mys
tery story which Macmillan has been
pushing in the Inst few weeks anil
of which William Lyon Phelps of
Yalo says, “ . . . one of the best
mystery stories I know.”
Then there is “China,” another
Macmillan volume which is creat
ing considerable discussion. It is
one of the most human of the re
cent; books on that country which
is still a vague, far-away thing to
so many seif-sufficient Americans.
It is illumined by flashes of lino
humor, touching even the more ser
ious aspects of philosophy and re
ligion. And, of course, there are
tho inescapable Milno books, and
the “Color” of Countop Cullen, and
Maxim Gorky and Edith Wharton.
Havelock Ellis’ “Man and Wo
man” is in the list, along with a
beautiful little volume, exquisite in
binding and illustration, called
“Eireflies.” It is liatpudranath
Tagore’s production. “Trader Horn,”
which lifted a backyard peddler of
cheap kitchen ware to one of the
brightest spots of contemporary lit
erary limelight, has a place on the
shelves. “Volpono” by Stephan
Zweig, “Disraeli” by Audio Mau
rois, and “Ariel: The Life of Shel
ley,” also by Maurois, are among
the prominent biographies.
The co-operation of M. II. Doug
lass, librarian, and of the book pub
lishers, according to Mr. McClain,
aided largely in making tho intro
duction of this large stock of gen
eral books possible here.
