Right now America is in 1 ho grip of an epidemic of cduca
1 ion. How chii democracy succeed? Kdueation. How can crime
be lessoned? ICdtieat ion. Ilow can wo fight disease, automobile
accidents, war, poverty? With education. The answer to every
human ill is education. Ivlueale people to see this and do that
lake most popular movements it lias ramified and pervaded
every corner, yef few even know what il is. Almost anything
passes for education. If you are a garble manufacturer you
educate the public to the danger of throat germs and, ad
suiumimi. the efficiency of your article in discouraging the
propagation of pathogenic bacteria. It is advertising parad
ing under the guise of education. If you are a social reformer
you get up on a soap box and try to educate the public to
your way of thinking. If the capitalist does the same for
his cause, that is propaganda. A large per cent of the educa
tion being practiced on the public is (“ither propaganda or ad
vertising. It is merely an instrument for converting others
to your way of thinking and to your ends.
This may seem a diatribe on American education. It is
not. It is altogether debatable whether propaganda is not
eipiit able in support of a good cause. But know what you are
getting the mark of an educated man is 1hat lie accepts nothing
without examination, without satisfying himself first accord
ing to Ids own criteria of its goodness.
Hell Week’ Becomes More Human;
‘Community Bovine’’ Recognized!
Now is the lime when freshmen can be observed during
1 lie still dark periods of the night in nefarious, strange, mys
terions missions. This week end. probably, eager, expectant, misty
eyed freshman coeds who were fortunate enough to make their
grades will be arrayed in wooden enrls, and kindergarten hair
ribbons, seeking innocently a black and white striped cat
with a gray ear and tail.
Fraternity initiates may be obliged to describe the buried
remains of some early seltler found in adjoining cemeteries.
Varied and sundry are the chagrins, beatings and embarrass
ments to which they are subjected. These activities are called
“ pre initial ion."
“Hell Week" may seem to be a crisis in the lives of every
person initialed into the tireek letter societies. Since the time
has not yet become ripe for their decline on the Oregon campus
the fraternities have been counselled by President Arnold
Bennett Hall to go easy with the rough stuff. It is good advice.
The fraternities devise the program of “Jlrll Week" to
make the formal initiation ceremony which immediately fol
lows stand out impressively in contrast. There is some justi
I'ieaiion of this viewpoint but an unrestrained pre-initiation
ordeal degrades tin* fraternity, the initiates, and the university.
As Hr. Hall points out in a letter to Oregon fraternities,
there are usually some rowdies, ruffians, or rough housers
w ho cannot “ resist the temptation to beat someone up." As
suredly it gives free reign to a low brow “bully spirit."
The effect upon the -initiate, as pointed out by Dr. Hall
is of questionable value. *<*
Those who are sensitive in their instincts, richer in their
sense of humor, reared in better taste and endowed with
deeper sympathies, “cannot but find bitter disappointment and
disillusionment in the horse play of ' Hell »\Veek'." Although
the initiate will not belly-ache or reveal an unsportsmanlike
attitude in main such instances, he will never forget the re
sentment of such processes in becoming a “brother."
These antics of pre-initiation week, which are yet prac
ticed. though not as commonly as formerly, are reminders
of that primitive humor of the good old days when the acme
of pep and wit was to incarcerate the “community bovine"
in the college chapel or fill the college bell with water or
throw eggs at the president of a rival class in meeting.
In October ol 1 Ill’S an initiatin' of one of the southern
college fraternities was accidently killed during the ceremony
of “riding the goat." It was a needless sacrifice. But such
an instance, though rare, has come within the experience of
a good many students throughout the nation.
The days of the campus-wide mill racing parties at Ore
gon, during which a gang of sophomores or lettermeu would
decide to take the disciplining ol the fraternity members of
the freshman class into their own bauds, have “gone for
Sooner or later, the practices of “Hell Week" will no
longer justify such a designation of pre initiation week.

SURVEY SHOWS EMERALD
READ AT DINNER TIME
Tradition of Breakfast Reading
Passed With Advent of
P. M. Edition
The Emerald is no longer read
over the cup of coffee at breakfast
time. A survey just finished by
this column shows that few houses
receive flieir copies before lunch
time, and that in most cases reading
is postponed until after the evening
Several houses employ fast run
nel's to sprint down to the Co-op
after a few advance copies each
morning, but one house reports that
even this system cannot be relied
upon. Emeralds often reach the
Co-op too late for anybody to read
on the morning of an eight o'clock
The colcl spell seems to be broken.
Those who are taking courses from
i fresh air fiends can knock on wood
and be thankful.
