We Start Anew
BEGINNING another school year is a joy to some, to others it is
somewhat of a task. To the members of the Oregon Daily
Emerald staff it is a joy because before them they see a year of
progress, a year filled with pleasant activity. Serving the campus
in a most essential way, they will strive to make the daily publica
tion a near perfect disseminator of student news.
Dealing with such a delicate sub ject as the policies of the pub
lication, we might say that no bold and radical reforms will be
shouted in the public ear. Changes for improvement will be advo
cated when the time for such is ripe. Support will be tendered
when a movement sponsored by the A. S. U. O. or any campus
organization is deemed worthy and justifiable. The mechanics of
the University have not been in action sufficiently long to disclose
the 1930-31 weaknesses; however, irregularities of the past may be
brought to light. IL is the aim of the Emerald never to destroy
without constructive suggestion. The Emerald is behind Oregon. It
believes her officials are the ablest, and, with the dawn of a new
era in athletics, looks forward to one of the biggest and most suc
cessful years in Oregon history.
The Emerald is as a tool in the hands of a carpenter- sold each
year to a new woodworker. What the publication does depends
upon the carpenter who is using it. With this the Emerald falls
into the footsteps of last year’s editor, who, we believe, guided the
student daily through one of its most successful volumes. Little
alteration in the general makeup of the paper is anticipated. This
as the first issue marks the introduction of a few new type faces, a
feature where every newspaper may find improvement, and an atti
tude of close co-operution with students and faculty of the Univer
sity of Oregon.
AN unfocused telescope peering far into the future has been be
fore the eyes of every freshman. So out of focus is this tele
scope that he cannot tell what is ahead of him. First it appears a
huge mass of moving machinery, then again it is like an angry
whirlpool. Presently the instrument will become adjusted. Definite
outlines will emerge from obscurity, masses will merge to form a
Looking as he does into the future he sees four years of Uni
versity life filled with a mixture of work and play. Just the correct
ratio between the two he does not see. His upperclassmen are his
advisors and from them he will seek advice. It is as an upperclass
man that the Oregon Daily Emerald offers its bit to guide the first
year student to a successful start.
1. Choose conscientiously a division between studies and activi
ties. The ratio will vary according to the student, so watch your
self and use common sense. An overbalanced schedule may lead to
an unsuccessful University career.
2. Do not neglect your regular work. Fundamentally that is
why one comes to school, that is why authorities are employed, and
that is why the institution was organized.
3. Do not neglect your activities. It is through them that
acquaintances are made. It is through them that you learn to be a
leader. Mingle among the students and, above all things, make
4. Maintain a high moral standard. Through this will come a
satisfied conscience. Strength of students today will make it less
difficult for posterity. Forget the collegiate rah rah and become
real men and women.
. . x
The Modern Fraternity
A BIT of disappointment, perhaps, when the new pledge returns
from his first 11 o’clock, finds the members busily engaged in
conversation, dressed neatly and waiting quietly for the lunch bell.
He fails to find that super-collegiate environment of tangled legs ami
sprawling bodies strewn over the davenport near gapping trays of
half smoked cigarette butts. Perhaps the newcomer has never been
a faithful reader of magazines depicting college life, perhaps he has
never heard advice about how to resist fraternity temptations. He is
one out of a thousand.
Yet when he comes to school on the Oregon campus it is differ
ent. There is no extravagant swaggering attitude of life in a social
organization. Things seem to be meant for business, seem to stand
for the higher ideals throughout a University career. Fraternities
are so organized to obtain the greatest efficiency from a selected
group of men or women.
Now is not the moment to discuss the time one should enter a
fraternity. We are merely pointing to the logic in the social organi
zation as a whole. Its sincerity and power to prepare one for a better
life cannot be debated when the fictitious, or better to say anti
quated, collegiate ballyhoo is forgotten.

* ’ gon harmony among students is essential. Remember the old
“Hello” spit it? Bring it back. String Hello Lane from one end of
the campus to the other. Everyone you meet has gone through
the same registration procedure, paid his $26.25. and yawned wearily
before making his first 8 o’clock. All are brothers and sisters- in a
way, so we must say “Hello.”
Realization that days of brutality to llie freshman are nearing
end comes with the rumor that one living organization on the campus
has no paddle in its possession.
Judging by the crowd in the Igloo during registration, men’s
physical education is the most popular course in the University.
Nevertheless, some of us can remember when a milking stool
would come in handy at every station during registration.

By Lester McDonald ♦
The second week in October the '
Emerald is to issue a magazine j
section, planned to be a four-page \
bi-monthly devoted to literature
and arts. The page size will be
one-quarter as large as the Emer
ald. Contributions of short short- i
stories, sketches, poetry, and criti
cism of art, music, drama, and
books are most welcome.
They may be left at the office
in back of Friendly hall, occupied
jointly with the Oregana.
Prizes such as books and theatre
tickets are being arranged for
each type of contribution.
Contributors can appear at the
office any afternoon from 3 to 5.
“This Land of Liberty,” Ernest
Sutherland Bates’ latest book, is
causing quite a sensation in liter
ary circles. Professor Bates taught
in the 1930 summer session, and
was at one time head of the Eng
lish department. He is a famed
critic and liberal.
Says Web Jones, in the Oregon
Journal: “The appalling picture of
the decline of personal liberty . . .
as presented by Mr. Bates, in an
appalling tale of encroachment on
private rights; of universal distor- j
tion of constitutional protection I
. . . of forces gone wild; of a new
generation doomed to life without
freedom . . . “This Land of Lib
erty is the protest of a man of
recognized intellectual standing;

“ALL, THE NEWS THAT’S FOOT TO PRINT’’
In order to start the freshmen
off on the right foot, (left in mil
itary), this column of chaff has
decided to print a director of the
places to avoid, people not to
speak to, and things not to do.
Next week we will run an article
on the cultivation of the poppy for
those of our readers who are in
terested in landscape gardening.

On thermometer or paper
Means not so hot.
Tt seems as if the Phi Sigs suc
ceeded in solving the problem of
what to do with the old Patterson
school building this year. It is un
derstood that the city of Eugene (
lias made them tentative offers of
the building to house their pledges
in. If this building does not suf
fice, the city has agreed to throw
in the garage behind.
There was an unusual prepon
derance of the Phi Psi type came
to school this year, according to
authorities. A banner year for
Phi Psi. We understand the com
petition was not great.

It has been a moot question
among certain circles whether the

beauty or brains, or perhaps neith

Considerable news comes from
Hollywood about Albert Richard
Wetjen, one of Oregon's best
known writers. His last book,
‘‘Way for a Sailor” has just been
finished as a cinema opus, with
John Gilbert. It seems that Wet
jen has had little difficulty recog
nizing his own brain child at
times, and the Gilbert is not quite
the bawdy sailor he conceived, but
reports say that it wili do much
to help the “screen's greatest lov
er” remount his pedestal. Wetjen
has lectured to writing groups on
the campus several times.
John Tunis, author of “Ameri
can Girl,” has an article in last
week’s New Yorker. He punctures
the proverbial theory about Amer
ican sportsmanship, pointing out
the superiority of the Frenchmen
in this respect.
Divorce is a subject on which
authors are supposed to be expert,
either through personal experience
or through objective study of the
loves of their characters. A group
of notable authors from four coun
tries have contributed their can
did views of divorce to a volume
to be published next month. Ber
trand Russell, Fannie Hurst, H. G
Wells, Theodore Dreiser, Rebecca
West, Andre Maurois, Lion
Feuchtwanger, and Warwick
Deeping, are the contributors.

—The fountain pen
with seven degrees
Doctor of letters, perhaps—but the degrees we mean are
the seven different degrees of pen points through which
Waterman’s will exactly fit your handwriting needs.
Try all seven yourself—pick your point. Examine the
patented spoon-feed that brings the ink evenly to the
paper without skimping or blotting. Note Waterman’s
size-for-size greater ink capacity—won’t run dry in the
middle of a lecture or exam.
There’s a Waterman’s for every taste and every purse.
Newest are the Patrician and the Lady Patricia—the very
last word in colorful beauty, as well as writing efficiency.
The Patrician's five jewel colors, its great ink capacity, its
extra large gold pen point and its aristocratic lines, make
it the natural choice for the man who wants the best. Ten
dollars. A pencil to match, five dollars.
The Lady Patricia is the pen women have wanted for
years. A smart feminine clasp locates it securely in belt,
pocket or handbag. Choice of three smart colors. Slen
der and graceful, yet it holds plenty of ink. Five dollars
—and three for the matching pencil.
‘ l<te»a! S
When you select your Waterman’s, have it filled
with Waterman’s ink — that’s the tic phis ultra
of writing luxury. Waterman's new Blue Ink in
the blue carton; Blue Black in the yellow carton. 1
Use the first for note-taking and general correspon
dence, the second when permanency is needed.
Every Waterman's is guaran
teed forever against defects.
