Others Take Dp Cry:
ISo Soap! No Soap!
Encouraged by the support tlie student hod.v is showing j
for our editorial campaign for improved soap conditions in the i
men’s gym the Emerald is prepared to carry the war for soap
to its “bitter end,” as one of our cummunicants in this morn- J
ing's paper suggests. Another student writes that we have j
“voiced a sentiment . . . felt for years” and that “It is a)
crying shame that sueh a condition be permitted to exist in
this harbor of advanced thought.” In a more fervent, vein
another closes his remarks with “Here’s for more and better
soa p! ’ ’
Proud to have struck a responsive chord, to have uncovered
an opportunity to he of real service, we bear the standard for
ward in the mighty crusade to down the anti-soapists.
Hut not locally has our shaft drawn comment. The seerc
tary of Public Health, with offices at Washington, 1). sent
the following message:
1 am amazed that the conditions you have bared to i
public scrutiny exist. That a university, the torch bearer
of civilization, should countenance such backwardness
comes as a shock. 1 aim sending a committee to probe the
case immediately. Under separate cover 1 am mailing you
a bar of Ivory soap. (It floats.)
Very truly yours,
.John W. Kniit h.
And from far-off South America, aboard the Hoover good
will ship, comes this little note:
December 8, 19L!8.
As soon as 1 a,in inaugurated I shall have the Senate
appoint an investigating committee to help you in your
crusade for more soap. Meanwhile keep fighting. When
I was at Stanford we had the same trouble.
Thanks for your assistance in my campaign. 1 feel
that without the support of your powerful organ 1 could
never liaVe been elected. And now I shall repay your'ef
forts with soap.
Backed by these nationally known figures the Emerald
ventures a prophecy soap is forthcoming. The little group
of valiant Physical Educators who have held out for years
against all comers will be forced to surrender under I lit' glaring
light of publicity. It must he soap, soap be it. H. 11.
Future Problems ISo Greater
Than Those of Today
Most of us tiro constantU got tiny; into dit'fioultios of one
sort or another, and golfing over them more or less suecessfullv.
Some of the difficulties that meet us pass over and leave coin ;
paratively little trace behind them. Others are not so kind,
and leave their mark permanently engraved on that suboonseious
memory which rises from the background like a; sept re to make
us pause on the Ihreshhohl of new attempts. Often they act as
friendly warnings. More often the experiences that we have and
the difficulties we have to overcome go to the making of a
larger and fuller self which can face the world and its vicis- j
situdes with the confidence of maturity.
It is a common thing for the older people to trodt lightly
the troubles of young people. But they forget that it is not
the si/.e of the problem that counts, but the knowledge of the,
right way to overcome it that decides whether it will become
a real worry or not. The problem of deciding a question of
state, if the experience of the statesman is broad enough, takes
no more effort than the deciding of a problem of organization ;
by an officer of some campus society if that problem presents;
some new features that lie has not previously met. When youth
becomes older it does not usually find the problems to be ;
greater than those now being met. Barger they may lie, and
more max hang on his solution, but iutrinsicalB they are no
In meeting some of the problems tin'll confront us. some !
times we are tempted to let the thing slide, and “Bet it solve
itself" is a common solution tha< often fails to solve the prob
loin. Probably in a good many cases the thing is not serious
enough to plav much of a part in creating trouble if it is left,
but the failure to meet the difficulty is .seriousness enough
in all truth It is a failure that will probably lead to other
failures, and in later life will be a)\ open pit of inexperience
that will be the cause ol failure in main an undertaking

Representatives of the extremely

he smiled. "1 do both kinds of
things. Three days a week 1 buy
my bread and butter with westerns
and fillers- I'm under contract
with a pulp paper right uow—and
the rest of the week I do the thing

The stamp of a sailor is not on
this energetic, smiling person. That
he has weathered shipwrecks, rode
days on end of churning sea, and ,
traveled uncounted miles about the
world doing a bit of everything, is i
evidenced in nothing but a slight ^
accent in his ready speech, which
marks him as an Englishman.

You've got to sink to the lowest
