THE University of Illinois lias
taken a forward step in adopt
ing a program under which all in
tercollegiate sports are to bo placed
on the same footing. If the plan
proves to be a success, it will mean
the end of the designation of a
game as a major or a minor sport.
The proponents of the scheme hold
that by giving equal recognition to
athletes regardless of the sport in
which they compete an increased
number of students will try for ath
letic teams representing the univer
sity, thus tending to mitigate the
seriousness of the charge that col
legiate athletics are conducted as to
he of benefit to but a few.
Athletic records live in black and
white and in the memories of those
present when the records were made.
College spirit and athletic prestige,
however, vary their fortunes with
<allege generations. Thu problem
of regaining lost athletic prestige
is ony which holds the attention of
Oregon students and alumni inter
ested in collegiate sports.
With the more lucrative sports
labeled as major sports, the atten
tion of the sporting public is lim
ited to but a part of the University ’s
sports program. If Oregon will elect
to follow the lead of Illinois and
put all of her teams on an equal
footing as representatives of the
University, what are now the minor
sports would gain in favor with tho
students, the competition for places
on the squads would become keener,
and the quality of the teams improve
as a result. With all teams and
sports rated as being of equal im
portance, the failure of one team to
come through a season of competi
tion with flying colors would not
constitute the near calamity it now
is held to be and Oregon sport pres
tige would be more nearly constant.

The Revolt of Youth ’31
Ti Tlu; Kditor:
One of the biggest jokes that we
freshmen have to humbly submit to
in my opinion is this Knglish A ex
amination thut we are required to
take iluiin^ our first week here.
Now if anyone happens to re
member how the first week on this
campus was you will recall that it
was very discouraging: (lotting reg
istered—rushing dates, — everyone
seems to be running around in a
burry, and yet we are expected to
ki ep a cool -mind and pass an Eng
lish examination in which you are
asked whether cat has two r’s in
it or one, and other questions of
equally heavy thought.
How many freshmen consider this
examination seriously.' liven if
they' did give it serious thought- are
their minds in such a slate that
they can think clearly And 1 ask
how many'pass the examination.’
Now, either something is wrong
with the system of education in On
gon, or something wrong with the
Knglish professors’ examination.
They have been giving this same
type of examination for at leas!
fix years that ! am aware of, there
fore it. must bo alright.
Now comes the tragic part. For
the poor individuals who happened
to get a little excited during their
first week at college and forgot how
to spell cat, and who were unable
to schedule their classes so that
they could take this enchanting
iOur.se this year ten American dol
lars will be required in order to
get this wonderful course (maybe
you will get. an engraved certifi
cate.') It seems that we haven't
enough expenses now.
The point th;it 1 am trying to put
over is that there is something
wrong is it the students,' is it the
system of education! Will some
wise man figure it out / 1 can't!
dust what is it.’ Will it take an
other g. iteration to get anything
done abellt it !

the gills look ns though they’re, gct
ting a big kick out of life and are
having fun instead of working, the
show can get by with some pretty
weak spots in the actual dancing.
The dances which the ponies worked
on Sunday were not easy, but there
wasn’t a girl in the crowd who
didn’t put her whole self into the
job and who didn’t seem to be en
joying herself tremendously.
Camille Burton, directing with
the aid of a golf stick between num
bers and leading the numbers when
on the stage, kept the dancing at a
high pitch. A remarkable charac
teristic of the pony chorus was the
balance of ability shown. There
were no dancers who couldn’t keep
up and there were none who wore so
far ahead of the others that any
unfavorable comparison could be
made. Here aro the girls who per

Larus & Bro. Co.
Two years ago my wife gave me an
expensive pipe. I smoked it a great
deal for two or three weeks, put it aside,
then began smoking it again. This
time it was very strong. Veterans told
me that it had been smoked too hard
for anew pipe and should be put away.
The pipe was laid away again. A
short time ago I got it out and smoked
one of the common brands of tobacco
in it. The results were disappointing.
I told the druggist of my experience
with it. He asked if I had tried Edge

when I say that it has restored the
sweetness to the pipe, and has made
