Descends Upon Us
Nil'tily pigeon-holed between Bigger Apple Week and
Better Movies Week is National Kdueation week November oth
to 11th. The Aim'riean republic is trying to find time to ob
serve tlie educational activities involved although slight (listur
bances have been caused by the throes of the quadrennial pres
idential election and the annual Armistice Day next Monday.
Yet assuming the need tor this American Educatfion week,
perhaps no more stimulatin';’ period could have been set aside
for it. The battle cries “ All for A1 and Al for all,” and
“Prosperity, Protection and Prohibition” have quickened the
thoughts and emotions, base aroused the political conscience
of the multitude. Armistice day will be a fitting climax to
a hectic week of education.
Easy, is it not, for sponsors of the educational programs,
to capitalize upon the interest ol the grade school boy or
girl aroused by the choice of the nation's president? Armis
tice Day provides another means ol exploiting in a thoroughly
commendable manner their aroused social feeling in the great
cause of democratic education.
In lending his wholehearted support to the activities of
American Education Week in Oregon, President Arnold Ben
nett Hall declares:
Educational week is helping to bring'home to the Ameri
can youth the reali/.at ion that the most treacherous foes that
assail his nation are title forces of greed, injustice and selfish
indifference. When he begins to feel the thrill 1 lull comes
with civic duty well performed, -Ihe American youth will not
be found wanting.”
That many young Americans will be induced to go to the
universities directly as a result of Education week is unlikely,
lint such matters as that of “faithful citizenship” should be
more lifting subjects to stuff down their throats than high
pressure appeals to eat bigger apples and attend better movies,
- even on Sunday night. W. E. II. jr.
Students' loti tiff Eights
Should lie Adjudicated !
This newspaper would like to see brought about between
now and the next political campaign a full adjudication ol
university students registration and voting rights. In the
(dosing (lays of a campaign is no time for such a movement,
nor should it be motivated by apprehension or belief that the
student vote is likely to run contrary to group desire concern
ing a controverted question, as was the ease in the campaign
just closed. What is needed is to find out just what is fair and
right and lawful and then act in accordance with the tindings.
To this writer it is obvious that if students tire not to be
allowed to vote they should not be allowed to register. In this
campaign they were not only allowed to register but. were on
couraged and in many cases urged to do so. And after they
had registered here and it was too Into for them to register at
their parents homes the otlort was set under way to challenge
their eligibility as voters. That was the procedure against
which this newspaper protested and which it believes to be
wholly wrong. And as it turned out the challenging was ttn
skillfully and in some cases unlawfully conducted.
The presumption of law and practice in regard to rollers’
rights almost every when- in our country is designedly liberal.
Our governmental theor\ is that the exorcise of the franchise
should be encouraged. Our most eminent men urge a full vote
and many of them warn the public that only through general
interest in public affairs and full exercise of the franchise can
we hope to perpetuate our institiiiiions. The dispatches have
been full of such speeches in this campaign. But through the
activities of an indubitably sincere and wadi intentioned, but
we til link wholly mistaken, group this community has been
placed in the position of instituting belated restrictions which
in (d'fect disfranchised many students because of the circum
stances already set out and which made it impossible for them
to vote at all unless tliev voted here. It ought not to happen
The remed\ would seem to be comparatively simple. Eel
there be full examination of the subject* b\ constituted legal
authority and let the results be placed in the hands of our
count' clerk as chief registration officer. Vml when students
hereafter present themselves as applicants for registration to
vote, let suitable questions be asked them which will establish
beyond au\ cavil whether or not the\ are eligible. Those not
eligible should, of course, not be registered. Those eligible
should be registered and not thereafter molested.
One other phase of the student, voting oontroversy is
worthy of mention at this time. President Hall, of the Eni
versity of Oregon, in a public statement, alluded to a report
that had come to hint to the effect that there was considerable
resentment in downtown Eugene at a supposed indorsement
by university authorities ol student demands to be allowed to
vote regardless of their legal status as registrants. This news
paper. is certain, through the information of its widespread
contacts, that downtown Eugene has made no such aceusntiion
nor held any such sentiments toward the university authori
ties. The licavil' prevalent downtown sentiment, furthermore,
was that no student should be disfranchised through a (pies
tinning of their rights in the eleventh hour.—Eugene Register.

The fact that the United States

during the war, was an issue con
tinually hurled at the affirmative

Two years ago last winter I went
into the Red Lake gold fields in
Canada. It was a tough trail from
Hudson, over 140 miles of snow and
ice. There were fourteen of us on the
trail going in, and frequently at night
when seated around a big camp (ire,
some one would ask me for a pipeful
of Edgeworth. These Canadian boys
sure like our Edgeworth.
In four weeks’ time I ran out of
Edgeworth. I was glad to get ’most
any old tobacco.
One day, however, I dropped in to
Dad Brown’s tent, a 72-year-old pros
pector, and seeing a can of Edgeworth
on an improvised table, back there 150
miles from the “steel,” I perked up at
once, saying, “Dad, I’m plum out of
tobacco—how’s chances for a pipe
ful?” “Help yourself,” he said. So
pulling my heavy duty pipe from my
pocket, I loaded it with Edgeworth,
packing it in so tightly that I couldn’t
get the least bit of a draw.
I excused myself for a moment, and
stepped outside to remove about three
pipefuls to put in my pouch. Dad
stepped out, saying, “You’re worse
than any Scotchman I ever saw.”
Then I confessed. I told him what
1 happened to my Edgeworth—that I
was just dying for a smoke, and he
j understood right away. He said,
I “Boy, Edgeworth is mighty scarce in
these parts, but I reckon I can spare
what’s left of that can. Help yourself.”
You can just bet your last nickel
that I guarded this Edgeworth with
; extreme care until I got back to the
