Be Kept as Pets
TT is the lioydey of the purely col
legiate. And the only law that
'campus day ebullition recognizes is
Everything .... everything from
the chicken salad menu which per
haps is the oldest, down to ducking
Pat Morrissette, comparatively re
cent, the program sweeps along
without, a hitch. Plans have been
made, necessarily, but they woulif
make a bare skeleton without the
happy traditional interludes. And,
bear in mind, the traditions com
mittee does not call signals.
Yesterday we saw the campus
frolicking tirelessly. Probably the
boys were showing off even morn
than usual because so many mothers
were here. And, too, the gayoty of
emancipated freshmen always puts
a kick in the mixture.but
there again, it is all tradition.
This little preacUgicnt is directed
to those who insist on telling us
that traditions must bo enforced.
Absurd. The Emerald dares anyone
to even go near one of those tradi
tions that was turning the best men
on the campus upside down. (-.Jack
Iienefiel excluded). They have more
vitality and a lot more authority
than they had ’way back when
Dean Straub wore whiskers.
After yesterday’s exhibition of
tradition rampant., will anyone have
the temerity to rise and suggest
that Oregon shall adopt this or that;
reject this or that? Wo sooner ex
pect to see a natural law repealed
than that stupid tradition about
wearing neckties at campus lunch
The Emerald is all for traditions
that work; but we don’t want any
more spoon-fed hot house invalids
that never will stand this climate.
We haven’t a mite t*f respect for
any tradition that will only appear
when someone snaps his fingers; it’s
like a trick dog turning flip-flops.
Anyone who was on the campus
yesterday must have seen plenty of
evidence to prove that nil this
twaddle about how many traditions
we better inaugurate next year is
just that twaddle. You can’t keep
a good tradition down.
Spirit of Shark
Captured in Print
TTObUilE 1, number I, ol' Shark
" Spirit surprised the school of
journalism yesterday. Shack Spirit,
il must lie explained since the fame
of the diminutive newspaper has
not had time to spread, is the “house
organ of the class iu elementary
newswriting. ” (For consistency’s
sake, we should have called it a
In make-up, Shack Spirit flatters
the Emerald in what is conceded to
he the sincerest manner; this alone
merits our attention. But in addi
tion to this important aspect, the
I clean-cut editing and the racy flavor
of the news—which has to do with
happenings around the journalism
school with special emphasis on
what a young reporter should know
—justifies approbation. The Emer
ald’s regards to Editor W. J.
On the Weather
r I Ml A la, tra !e! Spring has come!
We are able to say so without
uuv impediment to speech because
of colds. The weather man acted
in a most noble fashion and gave us
a beautiful day on which to begin
Junior Week-end, Why! the day
was positively glorious! It was
more than an ordinary spring day,
more like summer.
We repeat. It was a fine day.
Sunshine, a blue skv, a few feathery
clouds, gentle breezes, and all that.
The tug-of-war was a colorful affair.
The burning of the green lids was a
hot party. The exhibition tennis
matches drew frequent applause.
The campus luncheon has a place
all its own. If anyone didn’t get
enough to eat it was his own fault.
If he didn’t like what he had to eat
he never will be satisfied with any
feast prepared outside of the kitch
ens of fairy land. If he ate too
much—well, who’s to judge!
As we said before, the weather
was Ideal. The ball game was a
humdinger. (Oregon won). Besides
entertaining the crowd with numer
ous protests of the umpire’s deci
sions, the boys from O. K. ('. demon
strated that they feel quite at home
in O. A. C. uniforms.
As for the track meet between our
frosh and the Husky babes, and tin'
Phantom Fete, we leave the telling
of those events to others.
Anyone who has read down to
here is entitled to an explanation.
It’s like this. The editor suggested
that since it was such a beautiful
spring day, a sappy editorial would
be appropriate. We have purposely
omitted reference to the birds and
bees and budding trees filled with
sap and lmve come to the end of our
space. Anyway, it was a nice day.

They say that I’m bad—Atkinson and*his crowd—but I'm not,
Handsome. I’m just as good as any of them! Reformers—that’s
what they are!
I’m not bad. I’m just crazy about life; that’s all. Because I
dance and smoke and swear a little, they say that I'll not go where
they'll go—well, who cares? No, Handsome, it ain’t true. The
devil and I aren’t even on flirting terms.
If your offer is still open, I’m for you, kid! We’ll start life
all over again in Australia. You'll forget this island with its eter
nal rain, rain, rain. I'll put on a gingham apron and—well, we’ll
be happy. There isn't a thing on earth that can stop us! But,
darling, honey—dearest—if they tell you I’m an egg—don’t listen!
Shut your ears, fight, walk away—do anything, Handsome—ex
cept believe it!
Oh, yes, I know love. I’m no plaster saint. But with you it's
for good—the last time. I know it. I feel it. I’ll prove it! Hand
some. my great big soldier man—I'm waiting for you!
