glassy fixity with which he let them loll on the pulpwood sheet.
Ahead of him sat a girl, dressed in tlie ordinary clothes
which were a la mode on the campus. Not pretty clothes, but

He saw her through unbiased eyes, merely as one mortal
takes stock of another. What, an odd dress she had on. He
did not like its color nor the way it hung.
And her shoes. Too large. Sizable feet were unattractive

Her hair, lie noted too, was a plain shade, brown. Nothing

As if a magical transformation had taken place, the plain

Thus do many college students shine with reflected glory.
Thus many “rate” because the house they belong to has had a
number of letternien or good-looking girls the last few years.
Individual merits are submerged under the overpowering
weight of a gold fraternity pin from a house that “rates.”
The college man or woman takes on “color” or personality
in proportion to the excellence of the house to which he or she
belongs. There is a clannishness about it. all. Snobbery, a bit.
The fraternity system fosters an evil against the person
which is unfair and undesirable. When the system provides
fellowship, discipline and a place to .live it is fulfilling the main
part of its duty to the university.
A Plea for Open Football
TJE AVAS a football star, captain of his crow, Phi Beta Kappa,
A prom chairman ami after lie was elected Rhodes scholar
from the University of Wisconsin he suffered a nervous break
down and lias spent nine months in Idaho recuperating so that
lie can go abroad to study.
Jeff Burrus, the man in question, came out. of it all with
the conviction that college athleties used him rather selfishly.
Says an article in The Nation, a magazine known for its abrupt
and downright stands on topics of national interest: “lie be
lieves that tin* exploitation of physically endowed young men
. . . as if they were game fighting cocks or maddened bulls is
something less than one ought to expect at the hands of his
Alma Mater. . . . That modern football was not really an ama
teur sport at all—that it was from the outside a great show by
means of which universities keyed up the loyalty of alumni
associations and impressed the taxpayers; from the inside, a
relentless industry which built commodities of various kinds
upon the blood and sinew and carefully nourished college spirit
of the players.”
If such be the ease, and the recently published Carnegie
Foundation report dealt with the subject of college football in
the light of big business, let the boy who wishes to become a
warrior on the gridiron be paid a high price for his services.
The salaries should be high because of the extraordinary talent
required and the serious risks run.
In addition, colleges should throw the shrouds off the busi
ness of football, pay openly for the services of stars and indulge
in open competitive bidding for the cream of the prep schools.
Reality should characterize the dealings of colleges with the
major sports because these sports are no longer in the realm of

SELLING OF “MUMS”
To the Editor:
One of the most admirable func
tions of the Women's league is
raising funds to bring a foreign
scholar to the University of Ore
gon each year. The funds are
gathered from the Dime Crawl
and sundry concessions connected
With athletic events. One of these
concessions is the sale of chrysan
themums at Homecoming.
The Women’s league, however,
has taken an imperative stand on
the sale of the ’mums. In the
past, various student groups have
shared the privilege with the
league, but for this Homecoming
the women’s organization has de
clared an unfounded ban on com
petition. A group of Oregon ath

The opposition from the Wom
en’s league is thought by the ath
letes to be out of keeping with
the liberal traditions of the
school. The athletes are against
outside agencies exploiting the
campus, but they believe there is
enough prolit from the sale of
flowers so that both 'the league
and the self-supporting players,
operating independently of each
