“The young rooster was will

turkey gobbler.” — Hayings of
TN scanning the columns of
out' always - interesting con
temporary, the O. S. C. Daily
Barometer, our eye catches tin
following exceedingly subtle, if
somewhat evasive, editorial
product which is entitled
“Warts and Pickles”:
“Yes, children have warts,
so do pickles.
“Sarcastic names could well
bo applied to many an editor
ial writer who tries to voice
opinions on subjects that he
knows nothing about. /How
ever, if one desires to expose
his mental iaxity^to such an
extent as to .have others read
of it, all well and good.
“To repeat—arguments pro
and eon could be brought
forth, but again—everyone has
a right to his own opinion. It
is universally known that one
can be an helot to his own
convictions.” (For the bene
fit of the readers whose know
ledge of classical terms may

Corvallis editorial writer, an
“helot” was a bondsman or
serf in the Grecian state of
Although any incut ion of
specific personages is carefully
avoided, it is apparent that the
effusion refers to an editorial
in Saturday’s Kinerald which
began with a saying front Kzra
Peek: “There is many a kid
that has warts and is yroud of
it.’’ It further appears that
the editorial writer of the Bar
ometer regards the editor of
the Kinerald as a pickle, as be
ing mentally lax, and as be
ing an helot to his own convic
All this is very interesting,
to say tin- least, but why the
evasiveness? No mention is
made of the Kinerald. or of the
It. O. T. t’., the subject of the
editorial in question. The luner
ald does not flatter itself to
the extent of believing that its
editorials are widely circulated
on the State College campus,
and to one who is not familiar
with the (dueraid editorial of
Saturday morning, the item
from the Barometer can be
nothing but utter nonsense.
Why is it that the Barometer
chooses to reply to the K me raid
in terms of veiled sarcasm
without letting its readers
know wluit it is all about? It
would be interesting to know
.just how many O. s. C. stu
dents read the “Warts and
Pickles" effusion and were to
tally baffled by it. Perhaps a
confirmed helot afflicted with
mental laxity ventures to sug
gest perhaps the O. S. ('. Bar
ometer feels the base upon
which it established itself in
regards to the It. U ,T. C. and
other things recognized as as
sets to the institution and
which should not be ridiculed
is u trifle shaky. Perhaps the

The statement that everyone
has a right to his own opinion
runs like a refrain through the

university radio programs over

of tin: past year. Once in a
while the big football games
in Kugene were broadcast. On
various auspicious occasions,
play by play descriptions of
Ihi- basketball contests in .Mc
Arthur court were flung to the
These faltering beginnings,
similar to those of several
years past, finally developed
into a program of talks by the
Oregon Sports Writers’ associa
tion members or dignitaries
such as “Bill” Hayward from
the athletic departments, For
several weeks, the sportsmen
kept the programs going and
then the light began to fail.
Then vespers services from the
school of music were broadcast
on Sunday afternoons. From
time to time special musical
talent df students and faculty
has been offered to radio fans.
Student body officers at irreg
ular intervals, (a rally now
and then) would function. But
there has been no concerted ef
fort made formerly to coordin
ate the programs represent

task to which the Emerald is
willing to lend all the support

weeks remaining in the spring
quarter. Once the programs
are centrally and carefully or

will be the result, much to tIn*

The cereal that’s so crisp
you can hear it!
Here’s a breakfast treat to match the crispest
spring day that ever brightened the campus.
Just try the new Kellogg cereal—Rice Krispies.
Bubbles of toasted rice. Rich with flavor. And
so crisp they actually crackle in milk or cream!
The most popular ready-to-eat
cereals served in the dining
rooms of American colleges,
eating clubs and fraternities are
made by Kellogg in Battle Creek.
They include all-bran, Kellogg’s

A vision come true
In a part of Africa little known to the
whites, where obscure trails ran, Cecil
Rhodes dared to envision a railroad. He
lived to build it.
The railroad itself was part of a vaster
dream, a dream of a far inland coiony linked
fast to existing coast settlements by rail
and wire communication. And he lived
to build Rhodesia.
First the dream, then the reality, is the
rule with telephone men too, as they work
to greater heights of service. But in be
tween, they know, must come periods of
careful planning and smooth coordination 4
of many elements.
Scientific research, manufacturing, plant
construction, commercial development,
public relations, administration—many va
ried telephone activities offer a widening op
portunity to practical-minded visionaries.
