leaflet calls thorn and they are to
go to underclassmen who “give evie
donee of qualities of community
leadership” in amounts up' to forty
dollars each month for a year. A
fund subscribed by and through
patriotic alumni is the source from
which these blessings flow.
“Qualities of community leader
ship” will at onco bo generally read
by a sensitive public as a euphemism
for varsity athletic possibilities.
The hunch will be considered con
firmed when all persons interested in
the awards are referred to the di
rector of athletics or the dean of
men for consideration. But in real
ity the head of the scholarship com
mittee and the registrar also have
membership in the determining
group, and athletic prowess is but
one of the live bases of choosing, the

In England they have worked out
a soloctivo system which grants
“free places” to high quality all
’round men. These student sub
sidies derived from taxes enable
many of small means but great po
tentialities to continue their studies
to the glory of the institution.
This is exactly -what the Com
monwealth Scholarships aim at.
The serious disability is their re
liance on private contributions. If
alumni put up the money and if
the president of the alumni asso-,
elation sits on the disbursement,
body, and finally, if the donors can
prescribe the disposal of their sub
scriptions, who actually awards the
Oregon Commonwealth Scholarships?
If you don’t know, the Emerald will
guess . . . the alumni.
The Emerald does not blame the
alums for working toward a renais
sance of the ol’ spirit and the ol’
traditions of alma muter. But after
all, it is up to the men on the
grounds- -the University faculty and
officialdom—to make their account
ing to the state; let them do their
host and receive t ho credit or
curses. A few hundred old grads
intriguing on tile strength of their
scholarship donation will not ad
vance the University.
The Oregon Commonwealth Schol
arships will be the best possible in
ducement. in the University’s now
policy of rushing students if the
merit basis, which the committee has
set as its standard, is adhered to.
But the temptation to athletic

difficult to combat. The proof of

To the Editor:
It is appalling to pick up the
Emerald and find that n fee has
gone up or that the admission price
of some campus event has been
raised, hut the recent rise in ad
mission prices for the junior class
Bream Follies is the straw which
breaks the camel’s back. Prices as
stated in yesterday's Emerald are
exorbitant! Imagine "laying out"
$1.50 to see the Pronin Follies, or
contenting yourself with several of
the back rows for seventy-live cents!
This year’s show will have to go
far to exceed the Junior Vodvil of
last year. Prices for this event
wero 50 cents and $1. Charging
such moderate prices, the class of
llCkS cleared approximately $700.
Why, 1 ask, ale the prices raised
this year.’ Is the additional rise in
price to add dignity to the show,
making it excel over last year’- per
formance? it is disquieting to
wutoli the staging of annual events
with a little more added onto the
price each year.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

Conducted’ by Arden X. Pangborn
A new experience in delightful
reading awaits those who are not
yet acquainted with Donn Byrne’s
stories, when they begin his new
romance "Crusade,” a tale of old
Ireland and the Bast, done in his
best vein. It has that charm,
difficult to match in the work of
| any other contemporary author,
which has built up for him a tre
mendously enthusiastic following.
"Crusade” is the story of the
young Irish knight, Sir Milos
O’Neill, of Ulster, cousin of the
King of Ulster, who leaves tho
strange house in which he has been
reared from boyhood by his father’s
murderers, to becomo a captain in
tho employ of the Knights Temp
lars, in the Holy Land. There he
finds adventure a-plenty, and ro
mance. His encounters /with his
I evil superiors in the Order, his res
i cue of Kothra, daughter of the
Sheykh Haroun, his experiences
I among Saracens and Christians, aro
movingly related and couched in a
j style that is one of the delights of
V■ -fK .* --■
Mr. Byrne’s work shows the in
fluences of his education and en
vironment. He received a thorough
j grounding in the classics at Univ
I orsity college, Dublin, and extended
it at Paris and, Leipzig. To this
education has been added a wide
travel experience. He was born in
New York in 1889, but before he |
was threo months old was brought
over to Ireland, which ought to
have been his birthplace, since his
father was an architect there. His
name, then, was Brian Oswald
Bonn - Byrne, and his intimate
friends called him Brian—or, still
more intimately, Briney.
His boyhood was spent in County
Down, where his mentality was nur
tured on rhymes and legends of the
misty past until he had the folk
lore of the country at his finger
tips. He settled down to literary
work after marrying Dorothy Cado
gan of Dublin. A few years ago
he returned to Ireland,
j A friend describes him as having
j black hair, dark brown eyes, clcar
1 cut features, and the high forehead
associated with fine intellect. He
is fond of sports and horses and
during college was an outstanding
hthlcte, especially as a boxer.

The rumor that the A. S. U. 0.

foundation, according to reports
from the money-changers.
“We are glad,” they announced,”
for we could not have possibly

mortifying to have been forced to
admit that there was limit to the
