“TT’S TIME TO CALL A HALT” proclaims the Oregon State
Barometer in a two-column front page editorial Tuesday
morning. The Barometer specifically refers to the conduct ol
the University of Oregon supporters at tin* Oregon-O. S. C.
football game at Hayward field Saturday.
Oregon students, the Barometer believes, are a pretty hard
hum'll, an onlfit without the least element of sportsmanship, a
gang of rough-necks who pelt the O. S. C. bench with apple
cores and blatantly strive to embarrass and humiliate their
rivals from Corvallis.
Such severe criticism of the Oregon student body is embar
rassing, especially so inasmuch as it has a small element of
justification. It must be admitted that there were apple cores
heaved out of tin* Oregon stands Saturday, and that a lew ol
them came as far as the bench on which the Orange players
were seated, but the Barometer is badly mistaken in assuming
that such conduct was sanctioned or approved by student or
University officials. A group of inebriated persons not con
nected with the University who were occupying the Oregon
rooting section were responsible for most of the throwing, as
far as can be determined.
In regal'd to the other incidents mentioned in the volumi
nous editorial effusion, it is the opinion of the Emerald that
the Barometer is displaying an altogether too-willing critical
attitude. We could explain at some length that the bass drum
in the ease is one of the famed trophies of Oregon which is
always trotted out at Homecoming, much as is the plaster
beaver at Corvallis; that the Oregon Stal'^ rooters were allotted
relatively the same sections Saturday as the Oregon supporters
were given at Corvallis last \lear; thatOhe comic band was
merely a bit of innocent asaiiinity Which ragged Oregon as
well as O. S. C. songs; and that the rally preceding the Home
coming game wan entirely an Oregon party and was not staged
for the benefit-‘of Orange -supporters. We might also add that
the conduct of the Corvallis students has not been impossible
to attack in krays past.
But, spell explanation is probably useless. The Oregon State
studpifts ,'are doubtlessly feeling much better by this time lor
having humiliated Oregon on paper, after the Aggie team had
failed to do so on the gridiron.
Oregana a Money-Making Proposition?
OMEONH won a skirmish in tin* battle of tin* Oregana edi
^ tor’s and manager's salary, lint it is difficult to judge .just
who it was. The executive council last evening accepted the
finance committee’s recommendation that the editor and the
manager be paid each twenty-five per cent out of the first thou
sand dollars profit from the book. Out of the next thousand
they will get ten per cent.
Under the old rule of a year ago the Oregana heads got
$100 each out of the first $200 profit. So it seems that the
change which was made practically restates tho previous con
stitutional clause. .It is admitted, however, that the new
amendment will tend to fire the editor and manager with a
desire to amass profits in order that there will be remuneration
for them. The Emerald does not believe the yearbook should
be looked at as a money-making source. As the price now each
student who has his picture in it a time or two will pay from
$7.fit) to $}) by the time he buys a book and pays for the pictures
and his share on the house panel.
When the publications committee’s special investigation,
launched this week, is completed, it is to be hoped that ft small
guarantee will be recommended for the editor and manager so
that if the book is a success and just pays for itself financially,
which it has seldom done recently, the yearbook Ijeads will not
be several hundred dollars in debt and their year’s work
wasted. The time is coming when students will not be willing
to do this work on a gamble that there will be profits.
Over in the men’s gymnasium is an old trophy case, full
of footballs, silver cups won by Oregon track champions, pen
nants and plaques trophies of the athletic field telling of past
glories won by the University. A much more tit place for these
to be displayed, a place where they would really be on display,
would be in the Igloo. At a small expense the student body
could build a trophy case and store these relies there so that
all might see them. When a Student Union building is built,
they cau be moved to newer quarters.
Tlx* practice of freshman classes in past years of buying
expensive sweaters for the many athletes who play on their
class teams should be discontinued. The class, as a whole,
should buy them numerals, however. Last year the freshmen
spent $300 on sweaters. Some recognition should be given to
the athletes, but when a bulky amount like that is spent, it is
getting too near the class of what Oregon does for its varsity
The Illinois supreme court ruled recently that fraternities
are charitable and educational institut ions and therefore exempt
from any state taxation. Well, that solves tile problem in our
minds about just what fraternities were.
