SOMETHING of even more mo
ment than next year’s student
offieial personnel is the legislation
up for the voters’ action at the
same time. The student administra
tion has recognized the need of four
constitutional amendments and one
revision of the A. >S. II. O. By-laws.
Topping the list is a imeasure to
put the lecture program on the
same . basis as the popular concert
series. At a cost of a quarter to
each student, the management would
be enabled to insure the most at
tractive speakers at a great econ
omy. A half dollar is charged now
for each offering of the year’s pro
gram; favorable reception of this
amendment by the students will ad
mit the entire campus on their stu
dent body tickets to every lecture
at a total individual expengb of
seventy-five cents for the year.
The lecture series, operating on
the costlier schedule nyw in use, has
had'a record year in attendance and
high quality speakers. Few who
heard one of the lectures will 'not
agree that its admittance price was
insignificant in proportion to the
valu"; anyone who doesn’t concur
ought to figure up how much it costs
him every time he listens to his pet
bore on the faculty.
Such a series as we have had this
year is worth subsidizing. And if
we vote yes, the quality will go even
higher. This amendment, should pass.
An outgrowth of the spat just
closed between the juniors and the
student council is the proposed regu
lation of campus entertainments
through their finances.
The additional clause would give
the student council specific powers
in place of those it allocated to it
self by implication! in the affair
betwixt the Junior Week end direc
torate and student council. The
committee of experts showed that if
the trend towards centralization
were followed, the authority would
most logically fall to the council.
The other measures to be brought
up are purposed to hew out the dead
timber from the constitution. The
proposed simplification of the pres
ent, elaborate ritual for the award
ing of trophies is particularly com
Give Credit Where
Credit Is Due
Tt/JAKE tennis a major sport.
Tennis lettermen and mem
bers of the squad, backed by other
minor sports groups, are seeking to
iiave the net game placed on an
equal basis with football, basketball,
baseball and track.
The popular justification given for
the need for winning tcaims is that
they «erve to advertise the Univer
sity, and tlic'ro can be no question
that they do so for the university
which is represented by victorious
athletic teams becomes known far
and wide. It is not only that ath
letic prestige begets more athletes
to carry on the record, but that even
the more intellectually inclined stu
dents, saving the self-styled intel
lectuals, are likely to prefer an in
stitution with a reputation for fine
For the past several years, basket,
ball and tennis have been the most
uniformly successful in giving rise
to favorable publicity to Oregon
athletics. Basketball is already a
j major sport and needs no further
inducement to lure players than the
splendid record made by Oregon
teams under Coach Rinehart. Ten
nis, because of stars on the Oregon
squad, has attracted attention to the
University by means of columns of
, material appearing in the news
papers of tlii- coast. The outlook
I for tennis at Oregon promises even
greater triumphs because of new
stars with several years of collegiate
| competition ahead of them. Oro
igon’s netmen are deserving of rec
I ognition equal to that given in any
'other branch of college athletics.
j Officers shouted, the band played,
land the R. O. T. t'. passed in review.
I At the end of the field, double time
was given and the companies hur
ried toward the barracks, glad the
parade was over. That feeling will
continue as long as military drill is
compulsory and not voluntary.
Oriental Art Dominant in Books

Chinese Painting Japanese Prints Among the Latest
Additions to Collection
Tho brilliant nrt of tho Orient
runs riot through tho colorful pages
of some 30 hooks recently received
at tho Murray Warner Museum li
brary. Those at tho library havo
examined the books with delight,
but not inanv students as yot have
learned of their presence. They are
euro to be popular with those who j
know something of Chinese and Jap
anese culture, and even the casual !
browser will enjoy tho pictures.
There are a number of exquisite
specimens of the photo-engraver’s
Most of the books are illustrated
in color, especially the group de
voted to the Fine Arts. Of these, |
perhaps the most notable is a vol
ume of “The Color-prints of Hiro
shige,’’ by E. F. Strange. This
book contains the most complete
biography of Hiroshige that has yet
appeared in any European language.
In addition to his well-known land
scapes, full consideration is given
to the delightful series of flower
and bird compositions, rare fan-!
prints, nml other distinctive fea
tures of his work.
Chinese Painting Featured
“How to Know Japanese Color
Prints,” by A. F. l’riestly, is beau
tifully illustrated, as well ns "The
Art of Japan,” by L, V. Lodoux,
"Guido Posts to Chinese Painting,”
by L. W. Hackney, and "Chinese
Painting,” by John Calvin Fergu
son. Mr. Ferguson has distinguish
ed himself both as a diplomat and
scholar. Reeoaning president of
Nanking University in he has
been political advisor to the presi
dent of the Republic of China since
1910. In 19:10 lie was appointed a
member of the Commission tp Man
churia and Siberia, and in 19:21 was
a delegate for the Chinese govern
ment to the Washington Conference
for Limitation of Armaments and
Far Eastern Questions.
He devotes his leisure hours to
the study of Chinese art and litera
ture, and is considered one of the
leading foreign authorities in Chi
na upon these subjects. His books,
‘Outlines of Chinese Art,” and
‘Chinese Mythology,” are ■ well
known, and his latest work, “Chi
nese Painting,” is said by students
of Oriental art to be one of the
greatest of the year. He has been
a friend of Mrs. Murray Warner
Books of Travel
“Art.Through tho Ages,” by Hel
jn Gardner, and “The Chinese Rug
Book,” by M. C. Eiplcy, arc other
important books on art included in
Aside from the books on Chinese
and Japanese art, there are several
books on description and travel in
the East. One of these, exquisitely
illustrated in color, is “Japan, a
Record in Color,” by Mortimer Men
pcs. Another book on Japan is
“Japan, Korea and Formosa,” by
Burton Holmes. Two books on
China, “Through the Moon Door,
Resident in Peking,” by Dorothy
Graham, and “A Griffin in China,”
by Genevieve Wimsatt, will prove
interesting. Pierre Loti’s “India”
and “King Cobra,” by Harry Her
vey, will please those who enjoy
travel sketches. The last named is
an • autobiography of travel in
In the field of literature, there
are some volumes which should
prove absorbing among the new
books. Upton Close, whose real
name is J. W. Hall, has written one
on “The Land of the Laughing Bud
dha.” The theme of the contact of
the colored races with tho white,
especially the Chinese, is handled
in a work called “Snuffs and But
ters,” by E. N. Lamottc. Miss La
mottc has studied the Chinese ques
tion for many years, and tho ap
proach to tho problem is said to be
handled with sympathy and under
standing in her book. “A Girl from
China (Soumay Tchen,g),” by B.
Van Vorst, gives an account of the
life of a young Chinese woman who
has taken a degree in law at the
Sorbonne. Sho plans to return to
China, go into Parliament, found a
woman’s bank, and serve her coun

“Her Closed Hands,” by B. L.
Simpson, known as B. L. Putnam
Wcalc, is an interpretation of Chi
nese character and habits. Other
books on these subjects are “Jak
ata Talcs out of Old India,” by
Marguerite Aspinwall, “The Wind
that Wouldn’t Blow,” by A. B.
Ghrisman; “Foreign Magic,” by .T.
C. Cockran; “Gems of Chinese Lit

“A History of Russian Literature,”
by 1). S. Mirsky, and “Monogatari
Tales from Old and New Japan,” b;

There is also a book by Harold
Lamb, called “Genghis Khan,” on
history, of which the Boston Trans
cript has to say, “The whole color
