FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1928
'T'HERE lias been no assembly in
the recollection of the Emerald
so good as yesterday’s. From the
start when Don Bcelar beckoned the
retiring officers into the back seat,
to tho impressive introduction to a
pair of Jap dolls whose names we
didn’t catch, we thoroughly enjoyed
it. Maybe it was becuusc tho of
ficial weight of the Emerald was
transferred from our’s fo Arden
Pangborn’s capable shoulders.
Don Beelar never gave a better
speech. It was important; it was
brief. The Emerald commends him
for not dawdling over tho past—we
remember one or two examples of
that “bad student body president”
who insisted on vindicating his re
gime all during tho last ussembly.
Don is all right.
Now about his successor, Presi
dent Joe M^Keowtj, ..loo’s hench
men didn’t do him Complete justice
when they said he would be a good
speaker. He’s darn good. Digni
fied, suave, sincere—very well done,
One thing that caught tho Emer
ald’s attention about the spokesman
of tho now student administration—
the old has had its share of atten
tion—was a contradiction he made.
Wo think so anyway. He was talk
ing about the forward strides that,
the undergraduate body are taking!
an example was tho new status of
tennis as a major sport. Then, al
most in the same breath, and surely
in the same energetic vein, he said
that the new officers are out to en
force Oregon’s hoary traditions.
Erosh will wear lids even if it de
mands a returning to tho library
steps’ discipline farce! If that’s
progress we’ll bond over for Vie
Wetzel’s best five.
Thoro was real progress shown,
however, when the new president
met. the eyes of his following with
some straight-forward promises. That
squares Joe McKcown, the inquisit
or, with the Emerald. lie won’t
waste time in heckling freshmen.
They are a good-looking lot, all
these new officers. Tho new grip
on the gavel is steady and honest.
And although the editor-elect hasn’t
been back to the sanctum since he
tried out the Emerald snivel chair
during his campaign, wc ’ll fool easy
about surrendering it any time lie
comes around again. It’s the first
time, mind, that a sophomore has
been accorded the privilege of carv
ing his initials on this desk.
The ’Emerald concurs with the
new officers who complimented the
retiring student administration night
before last. They built this year, a
platform which carried the students’
business admirably, and it is turned
over to the ’28- ’29 staff in ship
shape condition. Congratulations;
they arc due.
Your Cares and
'TVlIlS morning marks tho begin
A ning of another Junior Week
end. The Junior Week-end of old
was a time when tho campus folk
worked and worked and planned
and planned in an effort to enter
tain a multitude of guests. It was
a combination of a spring liomccom
iug of grads and a campus-wide rush
ing party. Tho guests usually had
a good time. Tho students were too
busy at the time to know whether
they enjoyed tho celebration or even
thought of it as a time of play.
Finally, someone conceived tho
happy thought that the week-end
should be a timo for student enjoy
ment. After some discussion, It was
decided that tho grads wore not to
bo encouraged to return to the old
stamping grounds for the two days
of fun and proppers wore not to be
[ invited to attend.
The plan was an improvement
over the old practice but there were
still too few students who got to en
joy the events. In particular, those
who worked until the last minute in
making ready the floats for the
canoe fete seldom were able to sec
tho fruits of their labor so as, to
appreciate what they had -wrought.
Accordingly, the plan of rotating
entries so that each organization
participated two years out of three
was adopted last year. A dry mill
raco caused the temporary abandon
meat of the fete, so that tonight’s
Phantom Fete will be the first nn
dor the new plan.
Junior Week-end is thus the time
for campus play. Tho directorate
has labored hard and long in plan
i.ing a good time for all. The pro
gram arranged assures a plentitudc
of events that allows for practically
all tastes in amusements. Jaek and
Jill are all sot for a jolly week-ond
of college fun. .—W. O.

McDONALD: Friday and Satur
day—Milton Sills in “BURNING
DAYLIGHT”—a mighty melodrama
with Sills playing the most colorful
role of his career. It’s a story of
the Klondike, with Sills as “Burn
ing Daylight,” the first of the many
thousands to find a bonanza in the
frozen wastes of Alaska. Doris
Kenyon, playing the part of “Vir
gie,” ably supports Sills. The
photoplay is taken from the famous
novel written by Jack London. Al
together, Milton Sills, supported by
a great cast, does the best acting he
has ever done. The greatest “sour
dough” to ever come out of Alaska.
One can’t help liking the play, be
cause of its fierce emotional appeal
to the human instincts which at
times reach almost dynamic cli

Japanese Wins $1500
Prize for World Race
TOKIO, May 10—Toichiro Araka
today completed his round the world
tour, just 36 days after he startod
He thus won the $1500 prize of
fered by the Tokio Jiji Shimpo for
an around the world tour by regular
carriers in less than 40 days. Araka
also defeated his rival, Ryukiehi
Matsui, who now is bound home
It was a little more than a month
ago that Araka and Matsui started
their speedy world girdling tour,
Araka starting oast and Matsui go
By boat, fast trains, and other
normal modes of travel, they sped
around the World. The two passed
between Berlin and London.
The race was an even affair until
Matsui, en route from England to
the United Spates, was hold up when
his boat was, delayed in docking.
He missed a . mail plane from New
York and therefore missed the boat
that would have resulted in his
riving here probably ahead of
Araka. Matsui sailed yesterday
from San Francisco.
Golf Champion Wins
LOS ANGELES, May 10—(P.I.P.)
—Russell “Buil” Thompson, slender
golfing star from Glendale, Cali
fornia, is among the newest cham
pions boasted by the University of
Southern California, tho youthful
freshman having trimmed tho field
in the Southern California inter
collegiate golf championship played
at El Caballero over tho week-end.
Thompson’s defeat of Gibson Dun
lap of U. C. L; A. in the finals was
decisive, the Trojan winning 6 and
5 by virtue of a steady irresistible
flow of pars. The university did not
officially enter Thompson in the
tourney since it had no eligibility
rules and was not conducted by an
authorized intercollegiate body, but
practically all of tho collegiate stars
of the southland unofficially repre
sented their universities.

Have you ever noticed 1
. right, after a meal
How tired and lazy
you always feel?
I’m telling you folks
it isn’t a joke,
It will freshen you up
if you try a good smoke.
But whatever you do
these lines you must heed.
There's a certain tobacco
of course, that you need.
It’s packed in a tin,
the tin's eolored blue.
Not only the smoking
but the chewing kind too.
Of course if you never
are bothered this way,
Just keep the prescription
for some other day.
Ask for tobacco,
the best that’s on earth:
To shorten the story,
just call it “Edgeworth.”

Harold §. Tuttle Has
Article in Magazine
“The fact to be kept in mind by
the teacher of morals is that the
survival of any custom or tradition
or institution is no proof of its
moral value,” states Harold S.
Tuttle in his article on “Imitation
and Moral Progress” which appears
in this month’s Education. “The
fittest to survive is not necessarily
the socially most helpful, the moral
ly best. Imitation functions quite
indifferent to the adaptability and
serviceableness of the tradition
adopted. Rational thinking and
alert imagination, vitalized by a
deep moral conviction, are necessary
to keep traditions revised and adapt
ed to changing needs and rising
“We must be devoutly grateful
to the past,” Mr. Tuttle writes, “for
the institutions of family and state
and religion, for a moral code, for
language, for trade, and for in
tegrating traditions. And for the
innate tendencies that enable us to
absorb and carry over theso incom
parable achievements we must bo
likewise reverently thankful. But
wo must not forget that every tra
dition and overy institution which
we treasure from the past began as
a radical innovation, established in
the face of previous tradition at
enormous cost; and that tho heritage
we pass on to the future—victim ,as
it must inevitably be of tho imita
tive instinct—will prove bane or
blessing according as wo blindly
preserve or courageously sort and
select and revise what is being
passed down to us.
“In the interests of progress, en
richment, and idealism of life, we
must curtail and discourage blind
imi^tion, stimulating imagination
and rational thinking, and encour
