Student Automobiles
In the Springtime
ONCE upon a time not so
very long ago the Uni
versity of Oregon deans
of men were in the habit of
agitating vociferously against
the use of automobiles by the
students on the campus. Evi
dently the suggested restric
tions on the use of student Cars
was not received with popular
favor so the requests of former
deans went by the boards. The
number of ears on the campus
is as great as ever and increas
Spring is the time when a
young man's fancy turns to
thoughts of Automobiles. So
do thoughts of young college
women. The result is, judging
from personal observation,
there are more cars down here
this spring term than during
either of the other quarters
this year.
March, going out like a lamb,
witnesses gigantic calvacades
of motor cars parading up and
down Thirteenth street. The
ears fill the byways as well
as the highways of Eugene.
Students every spring direct
their attention to the pleasure
of joy riding.
flow to account for the in
creased number of ears and
the never ending processions
of student driven automobiles?
The good weather, following
six months of typical Oregon
cold and rain, induces the stu
dents to bring their ears hack

driving well, what else is
there to do? Something must

there is no place to park these

This brings us to the purpose,
finally, of lids editorial. The
parking space around the ad
ministration building is decid

the present herds of vehicles.
And the city of Eugene has

A Satire : By Wilfred Brown
(Of the curious traditions of
the Btappy Land of Collegia.
Of the Sacred Ceremony in
. which Student participates, and
of the gladiatorial combats
which follow. How Student is
punished for violation of tra
And in my dream 1 saw Student
progress slowly down (lie pathway
through the green meadows of the
Happy Land of Collegia in the di
rection of the Golden City of Edu
cation, whose spires showed up
faintly, far away in the distance.
Around (lie turn of the road he
came unto a stone bench beneath a
pleasant tree, and, being weary, he
sat himself down to rest. And as
soon as ho did sit himself down
upon tiie bench there came running
unto him oae Knight, clad in soiled
breeches and a wrathful eountcu
a nee.
KNIGHT: Avaunt, Frosh! (For
such is tin1 term used to designate
newly-arrived pilgrims in the Laud
of Collegia). Avaunt.- And so say
ing Ire smote Student with a great
stave which he carried.
STUDENT: How now, good sir?
1 am hut a pilgrim newlv-arrived in
the Happy Land of Collegia, and I
fain would sit me down and rest mo
from the weariness of the road.
KNIGHT: Avaunt! Get hence!
Da rest thou desecrate the sacred
throne whereon none may sit save
those who have long been pilgrims
here, and are called Seniors. Avaunt,
I say, avaunt!
And he struck Student once again
with great force.
STUDENT': But, good sir, 1 fail
to see what harm it may he for me
to sit myself upon the bench when
nobody else wisheth to sit thereon.
It would be a great boon to travel
ers. like unto me.
KNIGHT: Argue not, Frosh. The
law was writ by the first pilgrim
who ever entered into the Happy
Land of Collegia, and hath been
since enforced, from generation to
generation. It is not for such as
thee to question, so avaunt!
Whereupon Student rose wearily
to his feet and once again betook
himself along the dusty road, pull
ing his hat low over his face to
shield his eyes from the blinding
rays of the sun.

The McDonald theater offers an
unusually pood program this week
with “The Wolf of Wall Street,”
George Bancroft’s first talking pic
ture. Bancroft is irresistible even
as a rogue and steals the -whole
show with his famed laughter and
excellent voice. He completely out
shines the beautiful Bifclanovu and
the handsunfe Haul Lucas. How
ever, Baclanova partially redeems
herself with her charming singing
voice and reveals h r talent in sev
i oral delightful selections, reminis
J cent of her early career in the light
I opera.
The plot of “ The Wolf of Wall
I Street” is rather unusual and has
for its background Wall "street and
the stock exchange where the
“Wolf” carries on his activities. Of
rbnrsc their are a few weak spots
ill the picture, but the director lias
skillfully hidden them under the
cloak of Bancroft’s personality. Al
though the action is mostly verbal,
there is plenty of entertainment of
other brands to satisfy the major
ity of theater goers.
“The Red Dance,” now playing
at the Colonial, was evidently in
tended to be a thrilling, heart throb
bing drama of the Russian revolu
tion, but the director got his wires

less of a comedy. Dolores Del Rio

screen, saves the picture from be

If “The Red Dance” had been
handled differently, it might have
been a great picture, but there is a
limit to what even theater audi
ences will believe. Anyone with
a good sense of humor is sure to’

director for liis carelessness. The

back because of financial reasons,
Delano points out. The price for a
ten-hour course with part ownership
in the plane in the club will be
about or possibly less. Ltround
instruction will be included. Ten
hours is lhi' required time for a
pilot's license. Those who have
some instruction to their credit at
the present time can finish their
ten hours and sell their surplus
equity to some other member of the
club, if they do not wish to take
advantage of it themselves. Part
ownership in the plane will be in
valuable to those who wish addi
tional flying time. Further infor
mation may be obtained from Major
Eekerson or Delano.
The Eekerson Flying Service will
probably locate at the flying field
in Springfield, as the latter is closer
to the campus than the Eugene air
port and a large number of improve
ments are planned for it as soon as
weather permits.
