ELL WEEK” is passing. From beneath the slow grind
ing wheels of evolutionary progress throughout the
nation is coming a new spirit in fraternity initiations—a spirit
which is doing away with injurious hazing and useless waste
writings for some time. With its death, the critics also pre
dicted the passing of the freshman parades and barbarism be
tween undergraduate classes. The millennium which they
foresee 1ms nothing of the lioodlmnistic which lent the color to
At the University of Southern California an intorfrnternity
council committee is discussing the probabilities of abolishing
such a period as “bell week.” Serious problems arising from
this period of fraternity initiations have been of such a nature
that at the national conventions of the major fraternities there
lias been a successful movement completed to abolish hectic
hazing of neophytes.
Fraternities at Michigan State college were dealt u blow last
week when the interfraternity council prohibited any require
ments for initiation which “interfere in any way with regular
study hours or college duties of pledges or which will involve
any physical or nervously exhausting task.”
These two schools are not alone in this giant movement. It
is not ion-wide. Like an octopus, it is crushing down the funda
njcntalist who bewails the “soft time” that pledges arc having
ill comparison to his day.
Fraternities have brought it upon themselves. Were it, not
for the injuries and physical harm done to pledges the past
few years, such a concerted move against pre-initiation hazing.
would not he under way.
No one can deny that it is a tendency toward the better.
It falls info line with Ihe other trends of modern college life;
with llif' gradual abolition of intcrelass hatreds, interschool
rivalries which are fostered mostly on newspaper sports pages,
and the decline of “college spirit ” in the old sense of the word.
Unacknowledged though it he hv many, one of the hash
reasons for the growing unpopularity of extensive pre-initiation ;
rites is a selfish one—fraternityites are loath to devote so much
of their time to such pastimes which net them nothing hut the!
primal thrill'which the cave-man experienced when lie heat out
tilt' brains of a wild pig with a knotted club.
The interfraternity council at tin1 University is among the
most progressive in this respect, last year having passed a rest*
1 ill ion abolishing all forms of unusual init iatory procedure.
Oregon fraternities have been actively supporting this progres
sive1'move this year. Midnight jaunts and extensive paddling
sessions are fast becoming archaic.
Chess is an intramural sport in the Middle West. At Oregon
the week-ends are so broken up by Saturday classes it is doubt
ful that the sport could he indulged in.
Thought: Where did Hawaii get that nickname? Who ever
heard of rainbows roaring?

BAROMETER ON WARPATH
To the Editor:
With the Oregon-Oregon State
football game ten days past and
everything forgotten except the
Score, the Oregon State Barom
eter is still digging into the dark
and dismal (for O. S. C.) past and
publishing front page editorials
about apple cores thrown at the
O. S. C. bench and the lack of
hot lunches for press box deni
zens. All of which seems rather
trivial as subjects for editorials.
Considering the character of the
game (from a Corvallis stand
point) going on on the gridiron,
it probably is not surprising that
the Barometer editorial writer
noticed all the tilings transpiring
off the field.
TRIP A REWARD?
To the Editor:
The university authorities have
decided that the trip to Florida
shall he in the form of a reward
to the members of the football
squad \\ ho have kepi up in their
scholastic work. Thus it seems
probable that three men will be
kept from the line-up of the Ore
gonians at Miami. Perhaps this
is perfectly fair to all concerned.
Yet we have two football men,
who having fulfilled the require
ments set down by the faculty,
will remain in Eugene. They
have kept up their class work and
are as deserving of this “inter
sectional game reward” as much
as any other Webfoot player. No,
they cannot go to Florida because
it would not be good policy to take
Is the inter-sectional game a
reward? I can only say NO. For
a reward cannot be kept from
some and given to others when
ail are on equal standing under the
terms of the reward.
If the policy of the university is
to obtain games in the east as
reward, then such games as will
allow all eligibles to play, should
be scheduled. If on the other
hand Oregon will get games to add
to her fame, then she better allow
all regulars to participate wheth
er in Florida or Eugene.
