Prevention Versus Cure
(jJTTTDENTS of the University of Southern California are being
enlisted in a universal effort to eradicate a seemingly quite
prevalent “crime wave.” The misdemeanors in question have
been referred to by the Daily Trojan as casual “borrowing” or
“snitching.” .All members of tin; student body have been in
structed to lock their ears, watch their books and overcoats, and
to mark every article with ink, so that it can be traced. The
college spirit that encourages students to “hush it up” lias been
frowned on by the publication.
We are unable to conceive a condition when such strong
measures would be necessary. But just as the Trojan holds up
the easiness of relying on the same college spirit, that may turn
out to he a pitfall for a more light-fingered brother, when it is
directed toward encouraging honesty so may we take our lesson.
We have no such problem, barring a few exceptions, but.
measures of precaution are never amiss. A quotation from one
ol Ihe several editorials on this subject to be found in late
issues of the Trojan explains this point.—“The police depart
ment can only apprehend the criminal after the crime; it is the
students’ duty to prevent the crime by leaving no motive.”
Oregon is to be congratulated on the honesty of its students.
One particular instance is brought to our attention. One mem
ber of the student body recalls losing at various times during
the previous year some nine articles and of being able to regain
possession of them by calling for them a day or so later at the
university depot. This is the record Oregon should maintain ;
one hundred per cent honest.
Typhoid fever, tuberculosis, diphtheria and cholera are
among the diseases which may be transmitted by shaking hands,
says a Columbia university research student. Which ki^s the
story that money is the root of all evil.
If the senior bench gets scrubbed much more to rftjpaove the
frequent paint-daubbings it will wear thin and break under
sonic of the heavy dates staged on it.
Some co-eds complain that their boy friends are like used
postage stamps. They will stick but they won’t take them

ABOUT NEW BOOKS
To the Editor:
We liuve it—“A New Survey of
Universal Knowledge”—the four
teenth edition of the Encyclopae
dia Britannica, 1929. It is dedi
cated to “The two heads of the
English-speaking peoples, Herbert
C. Hoover, president of the U. S.
A., and his majesty, George the
Fifth, king of Great Britain and
Ireland, et al."
Well might the above quotation
be carved on a marble slab and
placed over the entrance to the
University of Oregon library.
This new and revised set of
books now quietly reposes on the
reference shelves of the University
of Oregon library and I believe it
is the philanthropic duty of the
Emerald to make a general state
ment about this “New Model” edi
tion of widely-known reference
and general information books.
This is not a piece of propa
ganda for a publishing house, but
merely an attempt to awaken an
interest in something really worth
while. Allan Nevins, in a recent
number of Saturday Review of
Literature, says of them: “It is a
production in which not merely
the editors but the whole world of
England and America may take
the most hearty pride, and for
which everyone interested in edu
cation and culture will wish the
largest possible circulation.”
To us the books offer the very
latest in every field of thought.
The type has been enlarged, il
lustrations increased, a more read
able style introduced, and every
article is written by a widely
Now, dear editor, you ought to
feel some relief to think that you
have not neglected your duty in
one important respect by failing
to tell Oregon students about
these books. Those who do not
use them as a daily reference will
be missing a valuable opportunity.
Self-perusal will bring out the
actual values of the “New Model’’
ASK CONDON qCIKT
Having spent three hours each
evening in the Condon library for
the past week, I feel rather com-1
petent to broach a subject that
has caused comment from various
sources. That is the problem of
the noise and disturbance in the!
so-called study room of that aux-!
If there is any lingering doubt
in one’s mind as to the situation,
just try to get one of those les
sons that must be extracted from
a reserve book in the allotted!
hour. Men and women seem about
equal in the quality and quantity
of noise and conversation that
they carry on. Perhaps the peg
heels have a shade more volume |
of staccato noise than the brogans
of the men. But as to conversa
tion—that is on about a par be
tween the sexes.
It would be folly to suggest that '
signs be placed about the room *
asking people to refrain from con
versation and worse yet to sug
gest that they walk lightly! Most
of those students that walk with 1
every bit of force that their
weight can produce would not
even see the signs. To go into
lamentations that such scuffling
of feet and the dragging step and
general commotion that students
find necessary in getting seated is
a sign of poor breeding—well, that
does not “get us anywhere.”
There is ouljr one solution that
presents itself at the moment.
That is to place the cork compo
sition on the floor of the type
that is used in the old library
building. Of course that would
entail a very large expense item
but would it not be worth the
money to secure a real study
