This Cadet Teaching
George wasn’t an incorrigible youngster. Few
high school sophomores are that bad.
But George wasn't on his best behavior today.
When he saw his chance and the new lady cadet
teacher from the school of education was not look
ing he drew back a rubber band and planted a
paper wad neatly on the ear of a girl in the front
Almost instantly the student teacher knew
something was wrong. A look at the aggrieved
girl in the front row told her all and she soon
picked out George, sitting in strained, pseudo-inno
What was she to do? She was just a new
practice teacher. Ideas and theories she had learned,
in her education courses were still fresh in her
memory. She remembered what her profs had
said. Her thoughts went in these channels:
“Sympathy and kindness are the best ways to
treat miscreants. I should treat George gently . . .
"Bagley says turn the pupil’s attention to the
unsocial attitude of his act . . .
“Professional attitude must be maintained . . .
“Teacher should interpret acts correctly . . .
“Maybe the light comes from the wrong side
and the irritation of George’s retina results in
physico-mental disturbances . . .
“George may not have enough work to keep
him busy. Should I assign him to write ‘I like
Tillie’ on the board MO times? . . .
“Secondary education is supposed to develop in
divfdual abilities. Should I let him keep on shoot
ing paper wads in the hopes he will become a great
marksman some day? . . .
“Maybe his seat is too high . . .
“What kinds of parents has George? Are they
influential and powerful in the community? . . .
“Should I appeal to his desire for self-develop
ment and tell him to wait till he gets outside and
then shoot paper wads at greater, better game, such
as football players? . . .
And so after spending ten minutes thinking over
the various rules of procedure she had learned in
her education classes, the cadet teacher suddenly
remembered with dismay that Douglass says pun
ishment must be immediate and sure.
Well, it was too late now, so she wrote George’s
name down in her deportment book and decided
maybe she could congratulate him for being able
to hit a small target like an ear from the rear of
the room and under such poor lighting conditions.

Regrets of a Senior
There are many thoughts that filter through
the mind of a senior during his last year at the
University. For ten or eleven terms he has strug
gled along partly under the guidance of his faculty
advisor, who is usually also the advisor for some
150 other seekers after learning, partly under the
guidance of friends or fraternity brothers, and
partly just haphazardly.
And then, with graduation three or four months
off, he begins to wonder just what it is all about,
just what he came here for, and just what he has
accomplished since he has been here. Probably
when the average senior matriculated at the Uni
versity of Oregon, somewhere in the back of his
mind there lay the vague and shapeless idea of at
taining a liberal culture, of becoming, perhaps, edu
cated. But this idea was subordinated by visions
of social contacts and accomplishments, of athletic
glory, and of sundry other collegiate incidentals.
By the time he reaches seuiorhood the average
student has obtained the social contacts that, of
course, are a necessary part of a collegiate career.
Most every senior has attained a certain measure
of distinction in one line or another of outside ac
tivity, but the vague idea of the liberal culture and
the education has long since gone glimmering.
Of course it is difficult to defiue such general
terms as culture and education. Someone once said
that an educated person is one who knows a little
bit about everything and a lot about one thing.
This definition is quite apt, but few are the students
who have even nearly attained that after four years
at the University.
When the senior was a freshman he was al
lowed little discretion and his subjects were shoved
upon him in the wholesale manner by his advisor.
When he was a sophomore he had a little choice,
but was yet sternly reminded of certain things
known as Group Requirements. When he wag a
junior he was advised to specialize as much as pos
sible in his major field and its allied subjects, and
when he was a senior he had called to his attention
certain courses which his department either re
quires or very strongly recommends for all its
So when a1 student comes to graduate he finds
that he has a fair knowledge of his major subject,
but in most other things he has “missed out.” If
he majors in journalism, he is reminded by the
political science or economics or sociology instruc
tor that the course he takes is only of the most
elementary sort, and that if he was to gain any
knowledge of the subject he must go farther. Rome
of the subjects which he has taken have bored him
exceedingly, and he would not go farther for any
thing, but in others he has found an interest, but
cannot go farther because of lack of time.
Just what would happen if the University of
Oregon turned its students loose in the educational
field, much as is done in English universities, allow
ing each student to take what he pleased without
thought of group requirement or major advisor?
The average senior wonders, rather pensively.

The ancient order of -
lives in a mansion modeled after
an old French chateau. Like the
old French chateau, the house has
what might be called a moat
around it, or down one side any
way. The sisters flip their cig
arette butts into it when they are
in a hurry, from their side porch.
The side porch usually is popular,
when it is not too cold, and when
there are men's houses over to
dinner. As far as that goes, the
weather is usually not so severe on
the side porch, anyway.

Talented, these girls. They
sing, and play the piano,
(they’ve totally ruined the ped
als), and dance . . . There’s
practically no end to th > ac
complishments they boast of.
And rumor has it practically
no end to the accomplishments
they do not boast of. But that’s
neither here nor there. The
fact remains that these girls are
talented. Ask anyone about it.
* * *
And, another thing. Do you re
call the lady called Lou? Wasn’t
she an entertainer? That’s what
the girls of - are. But
there's one difference between
them and the lady called Lou. Lou
had no heart. These girls have.
Sometime ago they painted it red,
and it showed up so from the
street that they tried desperately
to take it off. Now it is only a
nice pink.
* * *
And they’re collegiate. They,
too, remind one of John Held
junior caricatures, except for
the fact that John had some no
tion of what to put on his la
dies. Maybe these girls know
and just want to be different.
We’ll admit that. They are dif
ferent. They have a legend in
their house. It goes like this
. . . “Once there was a -
who came to school, fell in love,
stayed in school four years,
graduated, and finally got mar
ried, and is happy. Besides that
she was a beautiful girl.” Now
isn’t that sweet?
* * *
But that’s all over now. The
old tradition is all they have. Now
they're modern and don't believe
in traditions. And if you should
want to take a look at these peo
ple, they have a - booth at
the College-side. It is the fourth
inside booth on the right hand
side. Walk in any time from 9 a.
m. to 5 p. m., and there they are.
Maybe you’ll like them. But what
ever you do, if you like bridge,
don’t let them entice you into a
bridge game. Not if you like

To the Editor:
After using high - pressure
methods to sell Oregon men tick
ets to the women's all-star hock
ey game which never occurred, it
now appears that the W. A. A.
is doing everything possible to
make it difficult for holders of the
worthless pasteboards to get their
money back.
All one has to do, according to
the story in Tuesday's Emerald is
to call upon Miss Lucille Murphy
at the Alpha Phi house. This
young lady, after making sure j
that your ticket bears all the of- I
ficial seals and endorsements, will
refund you the quarter you in
vested in it.
Twenty-five cents is a small
.sum, but it is enough to buy a
package of cigarettes and two
cups of coffee or to attend a sec- !
ond-run movie, and the owners of
the tickets would not be at all
adverse to cashing them in. Could j
not arrangements be made to have I
the tickets redeemed at the grad
uate-manager’s office or at the
administration building? Surely
the VV. A. A. does not wish to risk
the success of future enterprises
by appearing to be grasping in
this matter ?

Wants Oregon Dads in Cal.
To the Editor:
Tonight I was looking through
some less recent documents among
certain business papers and a
triple-sheeted one attracted my at
tention; the title was, ‘‘Report of
the First Annual Meeting of the
Dads of Oregon.” The closing
sentence of the sheet headed, “The
Dinner and General Meeting,”
raised this question: “Why not an
Oregon Dad's Club of California,
meeting at some central place
such as Sacramento under
similar circumstances as did the
San Diego Dads?’r To be sure,
we can not as citizens, do all
that resident Dads can do for the
University; but if we could get
together as did our fellow dads
at San Diego, with President Hall
to lead our cogitations, ways and
means would no doubt be suggest
ed through which we could assist
the parent organization of Dads
in carrying out its program.
The knowledge that we are in
terested enough in the University
to confer together with its lead
ers on our mutual problems
would, I believe, improve the mor
ale of our children, for it would
awaken in their minds at once a
realization of a vital community
of interests held by all three fac
tors or parties, the University, the
student and the parent, especially
the parent.

Six Braille system books, the
gift of Donald Smith, blind stu
dent of the University, were re
ceived by the main library yester
day. “Cicero’s Orations,” and five
books in German comprise the lot.
These books will go into the new
department of the library which is
being organized for the blind stu
dents of the University and town,
which is being started through
contributions and purchase.
Books connected with classes,
especially in the departments of
English and foreign languages are
particularly desired, according to
