The Science of Harvest
Hand Rushing
Rush week is a necessary evil. Some fraternities, a few
weeks after it’s all over, begin to feel the evil more than the
necessity, hut as long as there are fraternities there must he
members, and as long as there must he members 1 here must be
rushing. Under the system used at Oregon—and, by the way, at
a great many other institutions of higher learning—rushing is
largely a hit-and-miss proposition.
Here’s the way it operates:
Some thirty fraternities sit about the campus as a group
of hungry harvest hands might sit around a table. The fresh
men are brought on. Like a platter of meat or a bowl of spuds
they are helpless. The pork chop doesn’t know by whom it
would rather be eaten, nor does the average first, year man
know, after his first week on the campus, what house, if any,
he’d rather join. But there he is. The farm hands see a
nicely browned chop and make a lunge at it with their forks
The chances are it will stick to the first fork that hits it,
irrespective of whether the individual at the other end of the
fork is the foreman or a mule skinner
If the chop finds it doesn’t care to be eaten by the indi
vidual in question, or if the individual finds the chop entirely
too fat for his particular taste, it’s just tough on both. The
chop either goes through a most unpleasant digestive process
or is thrown in the garbage can.
Now consider the plight of the freshman. Coming directly
from high school, tin1 chances are that he believes at least half
of what he hears, which is dangerous in rush week. Some
fraternity, for almost any old reason or none at all, seeks to
pledge him. According to the rushers the fraternity is the
best on the campus, flow does he know that there at least
thirty “best” fraternities? How does he know that the grat
ifying compliments which are paid him will be turned into
commands to bend over for the paddle as soon as he dons
a pledge pin. IIe docsn t.
On the other hand, how does the fraternity know their
pledge is not going to flunk his hours or swipe the house
proxy's pel necktie or that it is passing up a future student
body president. It doesn t.
The worst of us can hide our true natures for a week
forgetting the simile and crediting the freshman with
having slightly greater mentality than the average pork chop, it
is obvious that even those who have been “wised up” by
those who have previously gone through the college mill can
not form accurate judgment within a few days of any par
ticular group of fellows which may be trying to pledge him.
The university ruling which requires all freshmen to live
either in one of the halls or in a house and which consequently
places a premium on pledging tends to cause a man to hesi
tate in refusing his first offer for fear that it will be the last.
But that is far from all of the factors in the situation.
The excessive rushing of the week is costly in a number of
ways. Where more than one house has hopes of getting a
fullback, dinners and dance dates and automobile rides are
not at all uncommon. The new student, dashing from one
house to another, misses the spirit of freshman week and
the fraternity men who come back a week early miss the extra
summer wages which they might have pocketed if rushing were
deferred.
Tin* logical solution is pledging after the conclusion of
ihe first term of school, giving both rushers and rushers a
fair chance of hitting their target.

Why So Kudo?
To tho Kilitor:
Arc the students of this t'niver
sitv endeavoring to become nation
ally uoti'il for their rudeness to poo
pie of rcuown who aro so kind as to
im-1 mli' us in thoir itinerary? l)o
wo wish to frighten away all of the
public entertainers who may stop
here in llugene? ■
I hope we do not. Hut what ure
the Hussion Symphonic singers to
think when a performance such as
we staged Monday night is brought
to their attention.'
1 speak of the gross breach of
etiquette tendered to those excellent
singers who entertained us at the
igloo .Monday. 'file performance
had come to ail end, and applause
was even greater than it had been
for any of the preceding numbers.
The majority of the students re
mained in their seats, calling for
an encore, but a few had begun to
leave the igloo. The singers grant
ed the encore, waited a moment for
the noise of retreating students to
subside, and theft began a number.
Instead of sitting down where they
were, or even standing quietly, 'as
any common person with ail ordi
uarv sense of consideration would
have done, these students who had
risen very noisily clattered out of
McArthur court, talking and laugh
iug and raising a general uproar.
This little episode will certainly
leave an excellent impression with
the members of the choir.

Dr. Nelson D. Dossing, n new mem
ber of the education faculty, is to
give several addresses before edu
cational meetings this week. Wed
nesday veiling before the meeting

dergarten association at Portland,
his address will be "Not Wisely, lint
Too Well,” treating the practical
aspects of parental love. lie will
again address the same body next
month on "The Child in an Old
Polk's World.” ,
Friday afternoon at the Dinu
county teacher's institute Dr. Dos

activities with the high school de

I
Mete Business Office
Opened for Emerald
“What's happened to the Kmerald
business office?” Dozens of sur
prised students asked this question
Monday when they called at the
small building just north of the
journalism shack which has been
housing the circulation, advertising
and business departments of the
Kmerald - ami found a bleak,
empty room instead of the usual
busy office force.
The thing that has "happened" to
j the office is that it has been moved
to a room on the east side of
. Friendly hull, just beyond the of
fices of Jack Hcnefiel, graduate
manager of the A. S. U. O. The
I former quarters are to be utilized

Doctor Hodge To
Reveal Geology
Discovery Soon
Investigation of Mountain
Area Gives New Clues
To Interest Engineers
Dr. Edwin T. Hodge, professor of
geology, will be the principal speak
er at the annual state highway en
gineers’ convention to be held in
Portland Saturday, October 20. This
Will be the second time that Pro
fessor Hodge lias addressed the high
way engineers, having been one of
the speakers at their annual meeting
two years ago.
iioccnt discoveries in the geology
of the state of Oregon will be the
topic of Dr. Hodge’s address. He
will deal particularly with the sub
ject of the ancient range of moun
tains that existed before the Cas
cades, which he has traced from
eastern Oregon to the base of the
Cascade range. “This ancient range
lies under the present Cascade moun
tains as an old log half buried in
the soil is partly covered by a new
log lying athwart it,” Professor
Hodge explained.
The detailed examination of the
Mount Hood area which Professor
Hodge made this summer was start
ed partly because this ancient moun
tain range was found to be project
ing towards Mount Hood and the
Columbia river. Professor Hodge
says that he always suspected that
this investigation might give some
clue to this hidden mountain range
and the hidden wealth it might con
tain. The work is half completed
but already suffisient evidence has
been collected to show that the guess
was a happy one.
Dr. Hodge was reticent in divulg
ing the secrets discovered in the
course of the summer, stating that
he prefers to make them known
through the book which lie' expects
to publish following, the completion
of the investigation.
Hoover
or
A1 Smith •
Miss Julia Burgess, professor of
Knglish, would like to vote Novem
I her sixth on the five issues which
she considers most essential—farm
relief, control of water power and
other natural resources, relations
with European powers, administra
tion corruption, and prohibition.
Since this is impossible, she will
mark the ballot for Hoover because
of the prohibition question.
“At present there is less danger
from the tea-pot than from the bot
tle,” she declared. “ [ feel certain
that I will have a chance to vote on
the questions of corruption and lib
eralism again in future elections.
“It is not a matter of whether or
not prohibition has been successful.
I don’t believe that any legislation
affecting the personal, private hab
its of individuals can be successful
until after the generation which
enacted the measure has passed
away. It is an act comparable with
negro emancipation, which took
more than one generation to become
effect ive.”
Taste for liquor, Miss Burgess be
lieves, is not a natural, but an arti
ficially stimulated desire. In past
times it was stimulated by social
custom and liquor-dealers; noW it is
furthered by the "smart set” ami
the attitude of funny papers and
humor columns.
“Today, liquor is the leading joke
of the nation; but I can’t believe
that it will continue to be funny
forever or that fashion will continue
monotonously to In' tin1 same. Society
will want a new recreation."
Hoover’s failure to speak out eon
| corning tho corruption of the nd
| ministration and his close connection
i with big business disqualify him as
a perfect candidate in Miss Burgess’
opinion.
”1 admit the importance of busi
ness, but Hoover is apt to see it out
of proportion and not be so careful
to safeguard the interest of the peo
ple as a whole.
"1 am not voting on personality,"
declared Miss Burgess definitely.
"1 am surprised at the amount of
importance it is having in the elec
tion. A1 Smith is a lovable person,
but the fact that he has kindly
feelings toward must everyone and
knows how to express them in col
loquial language has no weight what
so ever. We elect a man to do, not
to talk."

Mr. Hall yesterday.
An automatic damp, an automatic,
pressure adjustment and a clamp
pressure indicator are features of
the new machine which has a 44-inch
paper capacity where the old one
was but 32-ir.ch, Mr. Hall explained.
He expressed himself as highly sat

Husky
(Continued from Page One)
Tlicir smashing 2b to 0 win over
Montana at Seattle last week speaks
for itself.
j A badly shattered Husky squad,
supposedly so when Bagsliaw sound
ed the long call for gridiron mates
last month, isn’t as young as it
seems. Instead the Pup has grown
into the bloom of dogdom. And
word comes down that its supremacy
over the Webfoots hasn’t yet been
finished. The big pack is strong and
has an inspiring loader in Clarence
Dirks, tackle and captain.
Also this Husky derby will flash
its ball carrying ace, Mr. Charles
] Carroll, known throughout the eoun
! try as “Chuck the conference lead
j ing scorer a year ago.” Carroll, a
line plunger and passer by trade,
is a veteran workman in his pro
fession. He will give the new Ore
gon linemen a busy afternoon. And
j this isn’t taking into consideration
his teammates who also help when
yardage is necessary.
Huskies Are Dark-Horse
This Washington team, .rated as
a “ dark-horse * a week ago when
it barely nosed out Whitman 7 to 0
in a practice game, now is
in the championship running. Al
though not given much chance for
first place, the Husky eleven will
not finish in the second division
if its present ability grows as may
be expected.
“Aces” who predict the outcome
of games here, have begun to hedge
in their opinion of last week in
which Oregon was “set-up” as a
seven point favorite. The newly
developed ability of Washington lias
■caused them plenty hours of worry.
Where the Oregonians were easily
the accredited victors a week ago,
they now are on the list at even
I odds.
The showing against Willamette,
in which Oregon won dS- to (i, still
leaves the impression that Captain
Me Ewans team has its greatest
1 chance against the Huskies that it
has had since the days of 1920. All
Portland fans have that “feeling”
that Oregon is due this fall. Con
fidence in Me K wan’s ability and
in (lie men with whom he is mould
ing his machine is plentiful here.
Portland Eager for Game
But followers of Oregon grid his
tory do not want .to see the Oregon
team come here this week too con
fident. Washington, they say, may
l>e a flash—but again it may be a
football team. Pans are hinting to
Me Ewan to “hop up” Oregon for
the Husky game and they all know
lie will.
Everyone in this “boiling pot”
sports city is lining up to back Ore
gon to the limit to win. And with
■ a howling mob of rabid fans cheer
ing them on how will the Webfoots
be defeated is the question asked.
Fees Payable Today
At Cashier's Office
Today is the day to pay labora
tory and class fees. E. 1’. Lyon,
cashier, urges all students to come
to the office in the administration
building and find out the amount

they owe anything or not.

row will have nine days of grace.
After that they will be assessed
for the first day their fees are
overdue, and t'o cents each day
