Liquor and the Colleges
'C'OR THE s(‘(*om<1 time in the past two weeks, newspapers
■*’ have contained stories of fraternity houses in middle west
ern universities being raided and students being arrested for
carrying on bootlegging operations.
The latest offenders were members of llie Gamma Eta
Gamma fraternity at the University of Illinois. Considerable
supplies of alcohol, gin and whiskey were confiscated. At Ann
Arbor, Michigan, just a short lime previous, police also arrested
college men and charged them with violation of the Volstead
While it is a deplorable thing, when looked at in an ethical
light, critics who condemn colleges should remember that the
college life is but a cross-sect ion of every-day life anywhere
in the country.
If there are to be violators of the law in every community
which boasts of a main street, college* cannot be expected to
be a glistening shrine atop the hill, where no evil can originate
or flourish in defiance of tin* laws of the nation. Every col
lege has its liquor problem.
There is a certain amount of drinking done in this Uni
versity and every other university in the state, or in every
institution of higher education in the United States. There
is, however, little public display of drunkenness such as one
finds in many places outside of college.
Offenders have been discovered and punished at Oregon
just as they were found out at Ann Arbor and Urbana. But
the point which should be brought ouL |>qt rarely is, in pub
licising the alcoholism in colleges i^ffijit thei:j*"}s proportionately
no more drinking in a group of colleige' stifllcuts than there is
in any similar-sized cross-scetjion |5pf American youth.
When the United States can look ijjito “every walk of life,
and say “There is no longer alcohol isintipresont,” then she can
turn her eyes on the college and expect to find a similar con
dition. g/**? I

student tickets to alumni or other friends of students in Port
The student exchanges his A. S. U. (). card for a ticket and
either sells this or sends it to friends in Portland. The I'ni

a transaction. Although there are conditions stipulated on
the student body card which are designed to make transfer of
tickets illegal, it has been practically impossible to enforce

Chicago, due to lack of funds, will close its public schools
for two months in December and January, the board of educa

motion to provide some source of revenue to pay for the schools,
the hundreds of thousands of school children will remain idle,
a truly deplorable condition in a city which is supposed to
have plenty of money in the pockets of its gangsters and beer

Such jokes are mercilessly cen
sored from the Emerald humor
column. Very often quite inno
cent jokes are excluded from the
column because someone's nar
row evil-mindedness succeeds in
squeezing dirt from them.
Now the idea of censoring ques
tionable reading matter may bo
all well and good, and I would
find no room for criticism if the
policy of excluding it were con
sistently pursued by the powers
But, the puzzling thing is that
professors are allowed to pollute
the minds of students by assign

as Rabelais and Boccaccio pro

I like to read a joke now and
then that has a racy tang, or a
subtle allusion to the obscene, but
it certainly disgusts even my evil
mind to read page after page of
unfiltered gutter slime.

A FRESHMAN HONOR SO< IK1A
I • o °
When the day coni' s foi elec
! tion of s'-nioi.-' to Phi Beta Kappa
and Phi Kappa Phi, the recogni
j tion has come too late to serve
I one purpose of these societies—
I that of inspiring students to a
i real interest in high scholarship.
For this reason Phi Beta Kappa
j on some campuses has sponsored
| the formation of a national fresh -
! man honor society, Phi Eta Sigma,
to which all freshmen making
grades of naif A and half B are
eligible. It was founded by Phi
Betes, not as a competitor, but
to bring the desirability of good
standings more concretely before
the eyes of freshmen.
Many men who go out to make
the freshman organization keep
! up the high standard for four
, years, and eventually win the
coveted key of Phi Beta Kappa.—

Parrot Found Out
That it would be a topsy-turvy world indeed if there were not
a new whisper fluttering around each day about what it is
possible to pick up around in Eugene's stores, and so like the
faithful bird he is he brought his tidbits home to help Sue in
writing her column, though of course she found some things
out herself and how! So it behooves the wise shopper to
listen in while the Green and Yellow Parrot broadcasts.
That glitter their way into
the heart of the college girl
— pretty buckles that dress
up even the simplest of
pumps. At Buster Brown's
Shoe Store on Willamette
may be found some of the
loveliest styles of shoe or
The Parrot whispers that he
had his picture taken at Ro

and that it enhances even
his splendid looks. So he
suggests that the students
would be wise to have their

The Light That

candlelight for soft effects
far excels, and when those i
candles are set in beautifully
and intricately designed can
delabras and candlesticks
the effect is far more lovely.
At the Alladin Gift Shop,
41 West Tenth, some very
exquisite candlesticks may
be found—and don't forget
that the unusual may always
be discovered there.

In Case Your Mind
Turns to Gifts
You might go to McMorran
& Washburne's and go up to
the second floor to the’
needle department. And then
the Parrot went wild, for
there he found “pouchiu”

life-like shapes. . . . Also
tapestry pictures, needle

Is that if she is going to
look her best at all times
and be in short the'essence
of smart, modern young
womanhood she will have to

place to go.

you go over to that relative
of his, the Green Parrot, and

food that pleases even the
most particular of eaters.
