The Publications Committee
Distinguishes Itself
Wi‘ have long considered 1lie student council to be the
one organization on the campus which could lie counted upon
to do the wrong tiling, but we are now forced to admit that
we have been too good to the student council in permitting
it to hold this title undisputed, for tin1 publications committee
has definitely proved itself worthy of sharing a part of the
Upon recommendation of the publications committee the
executive council yesterday decided that the Oregana should
he published as usual this year. On the face of it, this deci
sion docs not seem very important -certainly not one to cause
much painful cerebration.
'(’lie executive council has an ingenious scheme whereby
the year book may be published on the date scheduled with
out a loss of money. We sincerely hope this Works out, but
even if it does, the publications committee cannot be excused
.for the preposterous decision which it reached.
Here are the facts.
Ron lluhhs, business manager of the Oregana, submitted
a detailed and conservative estimate of expenses this year to
the publications committee. This report declared that, though
the subscription drive just conducted was the most successful
ever held on the campus, the book could not be published for
less than a deficit of + 1200.
At the same meeting, Marion Stem editor of the Oregana,
admitted that her Work had stood at a standstill for the last
few weeks arid tlial she didn't see how she could possibly
get the book out on time.
In llm face of this, flu* publications committee voted
to recommend continuation of the Oregana anyway. Jeanette
Calkins moved that the Oregana he published even though a
loss of .+ 1200 seemed certain ;md .Miss Sten (the editor, mind
you) seconded tho motion. The two votes were sufficient to
pass the recommendation over the dissenting vote of the only
other member eligible to east a ballot. Dr. Clarence Valen
tine Buyer, capable hut possible not much interested member
of the committee, was not in attendance.
It seems that such free-handed disposal of student money
not yet raised is a betrayal of faith which should not be
passed by without comment, hiving up to responsibility in
such a manner might he expected from a freshman, but hardly
from a senior and a graduate. The decision was little short
of amazing, and it is a fortunate fact, indeed, that the execu
tive council had the power to refuse to accept the recommenda
tion and no doubt would have’done so had not the scheme
for making up the deficit been discovered.
Free Subscription Causes
Dean to Worry
In jj not her column we publish a communication t’roni Frio
\V. Allen, dean of the school of journalism. We mention this
tael here so that the communication will have a double chance
of Iieiii”' read, for it presents an unbiased, concise and dear
consideration of the situation which has arisen on the campus
since the criticism aimed at the Kmerald recently In Dr. K. T.
I lodge.
We find, however, that our communicant seems much more
worried over the fact that we have presented Dr. Hodge with
a free subscript ion to the .Morning Register than does Dr.
Hodge himself. We agree with Dean Allen that there are
"plenty of other people" on the campus in need of a good
dailv paper, and regret our inability to furnish these. And
t his./despite the fact that lie admits it is altogether too early
for the Kmerald to present anyone with free subscriptions.
The Kmerald has not consciously as yet assumed a “top
lofty" attitude, as our correspondent would seem to intimate.
We realize that we do not publish a perfect newspaper: and
even more poignantly realize that wo cannot publish a per
fect newspaper if we attempt to do so from now to dooms
day. We do sincerely fed. however, that we give our best
in an effort to publish the best newspaper that we can.
We were led to criticize Dr Hodge’s criticism for several
reasons, some of which are listed below.
First, the criticism was made in class, whereas it might
much more profitably have been made either in person or in
writing to the staff.
Second, that we considered tin* publication of world news
thoroughlv at the beginning of the present term. We came
to the conclusion that we had no member of our staff who had
both experience and time necessary to handle this news. We
had no monov to pa\ one of our numerous professional news
pupermen to take care ol it, and no money to buy a press
service. Further, we crime to the decision after considerable
investigation that readers of flic Kmerald were not greatly
interested in international news as a part of their student news
paper. but that if they cared to keep posted on such news they
would prefer to consult the mure comprehensive accounts in
the public press.
Third, that we felt Dr. Hodge was unscientific in Ids
generalization to the effect that newspapers do not handle
scientific news in a scientific manner.
li is only jusi to Dr. Hodge that we admit our belief in
the fact that his criticism was levelled at us in good faith.
We did not agree with some of
we told him so in the most f(
If that manner was “flip” we
ret her he flip than afraid, and
while perusing over his eoffe
Washington's war on bootlegg*
will agree with us. _
To flic Editor:
Presentation of a paid subserip
i tion to the Register to Dr. Hodge is
| enough to make the judicious grieve,
j Not only does the action seem a bit
! flip, but Dr. Hodge gives evidence
\ of being rather less in need of a
good daily paper than plenty of
■other people.
The question he is raising in his
classes is, after all, a real one. The
answer may not be so easy to find
as he thinks, but that is something
outside his own particular field of
competency. Several of his prem
ises, at least, are sound.
There are several ways of pro
ducing a bad newspaper. One is by
going too far afield, writing of
things too distant and recondite,
losing touch with the paper’s actual
readers, and surrendering local in
fluence to attain a vague virtuosity.
It should not be assumed too easily
that Dr. Hodge wants anything like
Another bad way is to stick too
closely to little day by day facts
dose at home, to comment upon
these only from the point of view
‘of first impressions, happy hunches,
and local prejudices. In justice to
all, l)r. Hodge ought to admit that
it is pretty early in the season to
assume that this represents the
probable achievement of this year’s
Emerald. A student paper seldom
demonstrates its characteristic qual
ities before midyear, and some
years the Emerald has been a most
excellent paper in its class.
The Emerald has been mffst widely
quoted throughout the state and has
attracted most attention both on the
campus and elsewhere in those years
in which it has grappled effectively
with questions close at home yet has
applied to their solution something
of the logical cogency, the knowl
edge of underlying principles of
social science, the awareness of gen
eral social and political forces out
side, I he carefulness in the evalua
tion of facts, and the skill in pres
entation which a university is sup
posed to represent.
Whether the Emerald prints tele
graphic items is comparatively im
material. But the paper need not
be narrow, limited, superficial, defi
cient in imagination, unable to
wrestle with local ..problems to some
fine moral or practical end. Energy
and acumen are required even to
j find out clearly just what the prob
lems are. Energy and faithful pa
rt ience are necessary to get together
j the necessary facts. Energy and
imagination are necessary to deter
mine just what can be done. Energy
I and courage, together with judgment
land laid, are essential to get the I
j paper’s well founded views accepted.
If Dr. [lodge is possibly too pre
mature to be entirely just in his
I critieisms, it is, on the other hand,
altogether too early also for the
■ Emerald to assume a top-lofty atti
I tilde, or to present anyone with free
subscriptions to the Register. Its
achievements for this year are slill
almost enlirely in the fill uVe- which
is no reflection upon anybody.
To tlio Editor:
For llio work ending December 1,
IIS cases of influenza were reported
to 111'1 slolo l>ii:iril of liriiItii. Now
Hint influenza is undoubtedly epi
di'lnii' in tliis stiito, it is wo 11 lo
know how lo treat this disease and
how hi control it. Doth tho euro and
prevention of influenza tie pond on
knowing tho cause. Tim best way
to keep from taking influenza is to
keep away from people having this
highly contagious disease.
When you feei tin attack of in
tliii'iiv a coining on, lake a laxative
and a glass of hot lenionade and go
lo lied early. Knt lightly, drink
j water freely and stay in bed until
j all symptoms have disappeared.
Isolate yourself, .lust because some
lone lias passed this disease on to
you is no excuse for your being
i a re less. This is not a spectacular
| course of treatment nor will it pro
duce striking results, but it will cut
down greatly the chances for com
plications, such as pneumonia and
other infections.
The streptococcus liemolytivus is
usually unable to invade the healthy
lioil.tr but gains entrance in persons
who are run down by influenza.
Steptococciis pneumonia is a very
serious complication and the chances
of pulling through after this infec
tion has invaded the body are none
too good.
The importance of calling in a
physician early can not be too high
ly emphasized. Many of thi' com
I plications of influenza can be pre
vented by proper treatment. For
the sake of others it is well to re
member that influenza is a voi^ag
ions disease and it is up to you to
keep it tii yourself. Use your hand
kerchief and prevent the spread of
influenza. Sneezing and coughing
spray out droplets of moisture load
led with germs and any one nearby
is almost certain to get a good dose
of this. If you have tufiuenga, go

Today’s question: How can you
distinguish a college girl?
“Bobby” Reid, sophomore in jour
nalism: “A college girl is indepen
dent, she has a swagger that cannot
by mistaken, she wears the standard
campus clothes, but sometimes you
cannot' tell them from the ordinary
shop girl by the rouge they wear.”
Carroll Watson, freshman in busi
ness administration: “Freshmen
don't always know about .college
girls until they have been on the
campus a few months but the col
lege girl usually has a knowing air
and is sophisticated looking.”
Helene Koke, freshman in journal
ism: “The college girl is generally
well-dressed and intelligent look
ing.” *
Nadine CHlke'ison, sophomore iii
English: “By her collegiate dress,
by her individual actions and her
habit of always borrowing.
Irvin Ferris, junior in journalism:
“Bv her independent and under
standing attitude.”
Harold Bailey, senior in journal
ism:"By what Clara Bow calls “it”
—they just have ‘it.’”
Robert Jackson, senior in physics:
“College women are either hungry
or thirsty or both.”
