Explaining ‘‘Dormitory Policy”
A WRITER in Tuesday’s Emerald struck a clarion note for
tlie cause of the fraternity on the Oregon campus. In a
letter to the editor he voiced a complaint against the hardships
being brought on the fraternities by recent rulings of the uni
The letter, while it placed forth the arguments it contained
in a sound way, was written with the fraternity viewpoint in
stead of that of the university.
Some time ago the university adopted a dormitory policy
which was designed to reduce the artificial void which has ex
isted in Hie past between unaffiliated men and the Greeks. To
gain this end, which is as commendable a goal as an institution
of higher education could want, the administration has created
self-governing units within the men’s dormitory.
This dorm avus built with an eye to the future enrollment
nt the university and was larger than was necessary at the time.
So rather than have a white elephant on their hands, the ad
ministration passed the requirement that all underclassmen live
either in fraternities or the dormitory.
The Greeks cannot pledge men out of the dorm now. They
were allowed to pledge their houses full rush week. Only new
students in the university or upperclassmen may now be
pledged, the authorities taking 1 ho stand that these two sources
would care for the “casualties” siiStuined by the fraternities
at the end of fall term.
Witli the dormitories organized as strongly as they are it
is as inopportune for fraternity men to complain of their in
ability to pledge men away from the dorms as it would be lor
balls to get ambitious and seek to get men from the fraternities
to fill their vacancies. Neither is a “feeder” for the other.
Regarding the housing of high school delegates or athletes
when they visit on the campus, it might be explained that all
fraternities have the privilege of saying whether or not they
wish to take cure of delegates. Often there is considerable con
troversy over Avhere these preppers will be housed, fraternities
vicing for the outstanding ones. The cost of meals for them is
paid to the fraternities by the university at the rate of 50 cents
a meal. The lone difficulty is then the sleeping question and
that is helped out by dormitories handling their share of these
delegates, both at meals and for the night.
If criticism is to be leveled at the university authorities for
their so-called “attitude” it must be borne in mind that they
are not “out to get” the fraternities. The organizing of the
dormitories into a more strongly organized unit will improve
the lot of the unaffiliated man and contrary to belief of some
the improvement is not being made at the expense of the Greek
Discussion of Religions Coming
MORE than ordinary significance is the three-day reli
gious conference which is to be sponsored on the University
of Oregon campus November 21, 22 and 23 by the Y. M. 0. A.
and the Y. W. C. A. At Unit time Rabbi Berkowittf of Temple
Beth Israel, Portland, l)r. Harold Bowman of the First Presby
terian church, Portland, and Father Leipsig of St. Mary’s Catli
olic church, Eugene, will lead discussions in an effort to bring
about an understanding among the students of the three most
important religious faiths of the country.
Under the guidance of three men as well known in the reli
gious world as Rabbi Berkowitz, Dr. Bowman, and Father
Leipsig, there is little doubt but what the discussions will be
altogether fair and broad-minded, that the students who attend
will be able to visualize the philosophy of each faith, and that
there will be an added interest in the religious problems of
There have been times in years past when it. would have
been impossible to have held a conference such as that now
projected by the two campus organizations. The Jewish, Cath
olic, and Protestant each looked on the other as being altogether
wrong. Today, however, there is a marked change in the atti
tude of an impressive proportion of the people of the United
States. The Catholic is willing to concede that there are good
Jews, and the Jews that there are good Protestants.
All students on the campus should attend some of the dis- i
missions to be held next month. Such conferences will go far
toward building for better understanding among not only the j
different religions but also among the different peoples of the
Scholastic grades, as applied in the educational system of
America today are merely a substitute for the dunce cap, said ;
a New York educator, “Grades make a battleground out of
the classroom . . . an A. B. degree merely indicates that the
student has agreed with his professors during his four years at
school,” he said. To which we answer, at last we have a good
argument for low grades to use on the folks at home.
No concerted drive is being made by the federal government
against drinking at football games this fall. Judging from ones
we have attended, that fact is evident—and bad on universi
The University of California co-op sold a dog “complete for
$10.” All fraternities here should examine their dogs to be
sure that they, too, are complete.
