WOMEN smoke. That’s not news. College
women smoke. That’s news. Any paper in
the country would run a two-column story about a
co-ed who was expelled for smoking in a dormi
Walk down the aisle in a cafe. If a college
woman is smoking in one of the booths, the world
gasps "How wicked!” TaKe the sorority pin off
her bosom and the world might notice her smoking.
American folkways are funny that way. Any
number of mothers would hesitate in sending their
daughters to a college where they knew girls
smoked. How do they know girls smoke there?
They read it in the papers.
College women all over the nation are objecting.
Forty per cent, a conservative estimate, of the co
eds in every institution of higher learning in the
United States smoke. How many schools will ad
At Penn State the co-eds rose up in arms
against the restrictions against smoking. They dis
liked the hypocrisy. They did not want to "sneak”
their cigarettes. They were honest and morally
upright, and being forced to act in an underhanded
way to gain their own personal rights was not their
method of doing things.
It is time that the nation is waking up to the
fact that more women are smoking every day—
and college women like to eat candy, or ride in
automobiles, or smoke cigarettes just as well as
anyone and have just as much right to do it openly
and in public.
Youth looks at society and laughs at its back
wardness. But after all, maybe it is a good thing
it is slow in making changes; that it gives them
time to prove their true nature. Hasty judgments
are often disastrous.
WHAT They Tell Us They Said:
"Say, Stoddard, what’s the idea of paying
Spears so much money?”
"Really, your lectures would be better, professor,
If you forgot to come. I don’t deserve an F on
this paper. I copied off of Jones and he got a II!”
“If you really want my opinion, Reinhart, I
think you were all wet for putting that guy in!”
“You’re right, Agnes, kissing is unsanitary."
"Who was that awful crock you had at the house
dance last night?”
* * *
What They Really Said:
"Yep, Stoddard, I guess we showed ’em this old
University’s got money!”
"To my mind, professor, your lectures are ex
tremely well plunned. I like the fair manner in
which you grade our papers."
“Sure tough losing that game, Billy. Yes, sir,
five around the floor, sir?”
“You're right, Agnes, kissing is unsanitary.
What of it?”
"Who was that awful crock you had at the house
dance last night?”
Who Is Authority?
NOW THAT another embarrassing question has
been apparently settled concerning the class
to which a student belongs, the problem is not set
Last spring a still more important, though not
as public, decision was reached. Tomorrow there
may be another. The question will be with the
But unlike the question, the problem need not.
That problem is to find some authority to decide
those technical questions. Last spring two sets
of authorities were appealed to, and this last time
another set gave its opinion. No definite code can
grow unless there is some definite soil for it to
If the constitution is rewritten this term or
next, and present plans point to that reform, either
a definite code ought to be formulated or a perma
nent authority and procedure fixed.
There are those on the campus who condemned
the Emerald the other day for publishing pictures
of Hawaii on days like these.
The ice age is upon us.
Will there be anything on library steps this
morning besides ice? Have the Friday noon frosh
parties been discontinued?
“Spring must be near, the first robin is here,’’
proclaims the Oklahoma Daily. It must be out

OKOO PULLS FAUX PAS
Story of How a Young Lover Puts Skids Under
(Tense Drama in Three Parts.)
SYNOPSIS: The first third of this serial was
printed yesterday and told of how Toitus, the hide
ous heroine, sent Okoo, whom she called a cur and
coward, to prove his valor by killing Buvo, who had
insulted her when he said she wasn’t a lady.
Okoo goes, but Buvo is in such ill humor when
he approaches him that Okoo loses his speech and
wilts before the massive villain. The characters
have all been dead for over a million years.
Our head literary butcher says this story is
about the best ever printed, so good, in fact, that
it should be set to music and immortalized.
Buvo bent slowly over to one side, screwing his
face into fearful grimaces. He broke into such a
vicious sneer as he snapped erect that his feet left
“I need a slave,” he said. “You are no good,
hut I can whip out of you what little work I want
done. Polish ’at club. Skin ’at leopard. Sharpen
'at axe. Cook them two buzzards-. Or I'll heat
you to death!”
“Toitus—” croaked Okoo. But the piggish red
eyes of Buvo stopped him. “Ohooo,” he wailed.
“Dear master, I start.”
After a week of servitude, Okoo felt clutches of
shame. He was the only slave in the community.
In fact, the only slave he knew of anywhere. Was
that not awful ? Was that not terrible ? And Toi
tus. Oh, the dear thing! Even she spat down on
him. When he sought to lick her foot, she kicked
his face. Cruel world. Hideous world.
OKOO BUM PHILOSOPHER
Sometimes tilings came out all right. Rut Okoo
didn’t know that. He began to lose confidence in
“Oh!” he said aloud unthinkingly one day where
Buvo could hear him. “This is fierce.”
Pow! The slave-whip descended to his raw back.
• * *
“I’ve got to act. I’ve got to act. I've got to
act.” This howled through Okoo’s head as he came
to. He looked about. Nothing met his gaze.
(Be sure to read the smashing conclusion of this
drama tomorrow. It will tear your attention out
by the roots.)
Do You Know? j
That the Curtis Publishing company does not
allow cigarette advertising in its publications for
fear that it might lead to the demoralization of
the younger generation that sells the magazines?
* » *
That there is an Icicle two stories long
hanging from the roof of the White Temple
biilltling at 9th and Oak streets in Eugene?
And that it is fenced about so that when it falls
no one will he hurt?

That according to the A. S. XT. O. constitution
there has been no editor of the Emerald this year?
(The constitution still states that the editor of the
Emerald is elected by a vote of the students.)
Annual Directory Number of
Oregon Exchanges Off Press
The Oregon Newspaper Directory number of
Oregon Exchanges, monthly journalism magazine
edited by Prof. George S. Turnbull of the school
of journalism, was released yesterday by the Uni
The directory lists 2S4 periodicals, with the
complete personnel of each publication. The offi
cial program for the Oregon Press conference, to
be held on the University campus February 6. 7,
and 8, is also included in the January number.
A report by Professor Turnbull on the past year
in Oregon journalism shows that there are 31 daily
newspapers, 185 weeklies, and G semi-weeklies in
the state at the present time. Two more publica

this time last year, according to the data com

To the Editor:
In spite of the fact that the long
list of officials that Mr. Foster
submitted as believing in the eli
gibility of Mr. Udall to hold a sen
ior position while apparently be
ing registered as a junior, are
people that should be informed on
such matters before coming to a
conclusion, I believe that they could
not have investigated too closely
as to the exact situation. In view
of that fact, I am once more rais
ing my feeble voice in opposition
to such principles and am asking
that Mr. Udall be removed from
the position of manager of ticket
sales of the Senior Ball.
The reason for this request is,
that upon further investigation of
the case I find that Mr. Udall paid
the usual one dollar class assess
ment of the junior class for the
fall term, and that if there had
been a winter term assessment
placed on the same class that he
would have been required by the
comptroller to have paid it to the
junior class fund.
Now since the senior class is re
sponsible for the deficit that is
likely to occur, not because of Mr.
Foster and Mr. Udall, but in spite
of them, I feel that it is in the
just province of a member of the
class that has to stand a share of
the loss to protest such an ap

To the Editor:
Because some people cry for the
moon and can’t get it, they say it
is made of green cheese, and who
likes green cheese, ugh! Now the
moon is really a lovely lyrical
lady, (notice the “lovely allitera
tive swing” to it), if not looked
at through green specs.
The Fable III in yesterday’s
Emerald in that doughty column
called One Fr'a Penny (no doubt
because there isn’t a soul who
would give a cent more for it) re
minds me of two small boys who
cried, perhaps, oh so hard for the
shiny moon, but she sailed majes
tically on, so what do they do but
stand by in their slightly lov/er po
sition and take feeble shots at it
with the clumsy bows and arrows
of would-be sophistication and
scorn. Take, for instance, those
sentences, "The house is not a bad
house. It shows signs of dissipa
tion, but all in all it’s not such a ]
bad house.” What “Portias come ,
to judgment” are the instigators !
of this column! "God, what wit”
expresses their frothings aptly.
In a column of this sort, cheap
as they do admit it is, why does
petty gossip about fraternities,
that is equally true of one as an
other, have to enter in ?
