Another Thanksgiving Comes
With All Its Significance
Thanksgiving means much tin* same to ns from fall to
fall. Look back flown the intervening years to those family
gatherings of llie Pilgrim Fathers; you will perceive that little
has been left unsaid concerning 1 lie significance of this annual
harvest festival.
Sizzling turkey, cranberry sauce and all the trimmings,
friends and loved ones assembled at home together to cele
brate the gala occasion —every autumn is the same. Yet is it?
Each year of life, each glorious period of collegiate exis
tence,— makes one more impressionable perhaps? More sus
ceptible to colorful associations? More thrilled by philosophical
as well as physical sensations?
heaving by train and auto this afternoon for their homes
in every part of the suite, students are conscious that they are
on a vacation to observe Thanksgiving.
“Just another Thanksgiving.” Hut that is enough.—

'"All the Campus News
That's Fit To Print'
Curses, the Emerald has gone to the serapheap of inade
quate journalistic relies, an unappreciated martyr to public
service, unhonored and unsung.
For proof, see the communication quoting l)r. E. T. Hodge's
charges, we find staring us in the face in an adjoining column.
Our correspondent opposes Dr. Hodge and sides in with the
Dr. Hodge, esteemed and temperamental member of the
geology department, might have the Emerald print news other
than local events. As p is, lie calls it. “nothing more than
a-lot of stuffing with no news at all. " hut our defeijjtling cor
respondent is rigid in di daring that Hie Emerald’s mission lies
in supplying 1 lie university with the news which primarily con
cerns it. No attempt is made to compete willi the Eugene or
Portland metropolitan dailies. To do so would weaken efficiency
in supplying campus news and would tuVessarily he only a
feeble attempt to give a comprehensive survey of all the news
in all the world.
Be it noted, Dr. Hodge, there is a kernel of constructive
criticism in your viewpoint, of which we shall endeavor to
take heed. Perhaps there is room lor a wider journalistic ser
vice, a broader news scope which can be supplied without
resorting to the use of Associated Press dispatches and with
out making the Emerald a forty cage facsimile of the New
York Times. For some time there has been a sentiment, that
more attention should be paid to international affairs in the
columns of the Emerald. Always willing to contribute insofar
as it is able to the intellectual progress of the students, the
Emerald is planning to devote some space again this year to
analysis of contemporaneous political and facial conditions
which were treated eacli week last vear bv Professor W. P.
Maddox, then of the department of political science.
How much interest the students will evidence in such
material, assuming that it is admirably handled, is a question, j
They shall lie furnished something along this line providing
it is demanded.
Another criticism which has come to our attention is that
of the daily column hv our “inquiring reporter” in which a
question is asked representative readers. It was lamented that
the students like to read answers to such questions as “What
is love? "What are the most admirable qualities in a wo
man? “Do you believe a squadron of police should chap
erone downtown student dunces?" Our critic would have us
ask really signilieant. important questions pertaining to na
tional and intermitional problems of the day.
How about it? Which would the students rather read?
It is worth asking, and an assignment will be made soon to
our “inquiring reporter” to ask students: “Which type of ques
tion, sensational or serious, would you prefer to be asked?”
Upon the result of this will perhaps rest the decision of Emerald
policy. We have a sneaking feeling and some evidence that in
today 's “inquiring reporter" students prefer answers to sensa
tional questions and local news.
So the Emerald is faced with that old journalistic prob
lem old when priests and pharaohs firs* propagandized the
public ot wlictlu r to tiirtiisli our readers what they want
or what we think tin > ought to have.
Our policy is: “All the campus news that's lit to print.”_

Is Emerald Newspaper?
To the. Editor:
Jn a recent lecture to his class in
"Man and His Environment,” J>r.
K. T. Hedge, of the geology depart
ment, declared that the Emerald,
which purports to be a newspaper,
is nothing more than a lot of stuf
fing, with no news at all. By news,
1 take it, lie meant happenings of
interest in the world.
World News Plentiful
I beg to disagree with Dr. Hodge.
The Emerald is not supposed to give
to the student, to any great extent,
news of the outside world. That,
he can gain from any of our local
dailies. The Emerald is an organ
by which happenings on the campus
can be made known tt> every stu
dent, it is a factor in the welding
together of the student body, and
it is a means by which the student
in journalism can gain an element
ary knowledge of newspapers and
newspaper organization, as well as
news style.
With this pur}lose in mind, I also
disagree with him when lie says
that what the Emerald prints is
stuffing. I grant that campus news
is not world news, and is of interest
to only a comparatively small
group. But is it not news just the
same? If it is stuffing to its group,
then a story on the eruption of Mt.
Etna is stuffing to the world.
Believes Reporters Unscientific
Dr. Hodge also informed his class
that newspaper reporters are un
scientific, being very inaccurate in
their statements of scientific causes
and effects.
Dear Mr. Editor, if Dr. Hodge
makes some interesting discovery in
the field of geology, please send a
reporter who is well versed in
science to cover the discovery. We
uiustn’t let our secret out. He
seems to be too near the truth for
A Student in Journalism.
P. S. If 1 am disillusioned as to
the purpose of the Emerald, please
enlighten me through your editorial
column. I am sure it would be of
interest to many.
Sick To Be Accommodated
The dispensary will be open .Fri
day and Saturday only in the morn
ing. At any other time students in
need of medical attention may call
at the infirmary or call by phone,
004. We ask that students who do
not feel well come into the dispen
sary in the morning if possible,
rather than wait till the afternoon
or night to call a doctor.
Those who become sick after they
go home should not return until they
•are fully recovered. Any student
who returns to the campus late and
needs a statement for classes he
may have missed, must get a state
ment from his home physician.
University Physician.
Dear Editor:
Some or' 11s ;it least read tire ar
tiele in Saturday’s Emerald regard
ing its right to print eomment airout.
the Oregaria which was evidently
unfavorable to the writer.
Now let's consider the subject
this way. Do w-e want an Emerald,
a daily school ipapcr'? I don’t be
lieve there is one who would vote
against it if they had a chance. Hut
there was quite a number who voted
against the compulsory installment
of the Oregana, and three times that
number or more dido't care enough
about the book to drag themselves
to Yillard hall and cast a mark.
That’s not all. It's not dangerous
to say that half the votes in favor
of the “yearly struggle’’ wms rail
roaded through.
Kick Coming
Why shouldn't the Emerald kick.’
Even if they should seream blas
phemously about tlie thing, that’s a
paper’s right. The party who cried
I mean, softly wept, about the ex
istcuce of a paper who was gently
administering means of cruel oppo
sition to another school publication
will admit, I’m sure, that daily
papers airs' much more necessary than
magazines, and that there is more
difference in value between the
Emerald and Oregana than there is
between daily periodicals and those
that are distributed every month
or so.
A year book is just for a grow
ing college where everyone knows
everybody else. It’s nice 1 guess
for tiie sentimentalist to exclude
the face of some “tripplo threat”
on the team of t><l from a long I
string of other motionless disfigur
at ions and exclaim to his very bor
ed friend, “I used to know that big
bruiser.” Or to emphasize boast
fully to his equally as well es
tublished business partner, but who
w as never at filiated. " Yes that’s
thi’ house 1 belonged to. tt was
the best on the eautpus.” That sort
of thing is passing on as fast as
innocent women.
Enrerald Upheld
ttinie I’m as distantly lUsijon
neeted from tie' staff as the rest j
of you are from heaven 1 think1
it is most fitting and proper that
1 uphold the Emerald and encourage
its views. It’s tile students’ paper
and your articles receive the same
attention as mine, so if you want
the Oiogana put up a piercing howl
about it, but never, never condemn
the articles themselves like 1 am
yours, because maybe they didn’t
go over any bigger. Who can tell ?

Dear Aunt Betsy,
1 am a little boy five years old.
I live near Eugene and I play with
all the nice little boys that go to
school there. I like all the teachers
that work on the campus too, don’t
you? Mister Smith has such a nice
mustaeh and all the gurls are in love
at him. Mister Benefiel is a nice
man too only the gurls dont giggle
when lie,XUJUU’9. around and he wears
short pants. Why dont lie wear no
hair on his head? I dont like Doc
tor Boyer, he always looks so mad
at me and he always plays with
his dog alone and wont let me have
any fun at •all. I think he’s awful
mean dont you Aunt Betsy? •

Dear Aunt Dueklie,
Do you think it is befitting the
dignity of our Alma Mater for some
of those uncouth creatures at the
men’s new dorm to go about yell
ing: “raw, raw Sherry, raw!” Why
doesn’t someone call 00?

Dear A1 and Lu,
Someone should put a stop to this

^fiJhen the Most Honorable Tourist enters a
Japanese shop, experienced travelers tell us,
he is instantly struck by the elegant bareness
of the shelves. The astute Eastern merchant
discloses his wares one piece at a time, working
down front the choicest to an eventual sale.
If our local tobacco shops were conducted
on the Japanese system, we venture to predict
that Chesterfield would be the first cigarette
offered — and about eight times out of ten
there’d be a sale on the spot!
At least that’s what the sales figures indicate
— over six million smokers keep asking for
Chesterfield and the salesmen all know it.
And no wonder, you smokers. You who
have tried ’em know there’s no need to sell
Chesterfields — that mild different flavor just
