An Emerald With Wings
TONIGHT at 8:15 the broadcasts sponsored by the student pub
lication and KORE will be resumed. It will be the Oregon
Daily Emerald of the air.
Something more than mere hour broadcasts, something higher
than the incessant prattling of an advertising announcer, something
greater than the trifling amusement of the cheap entertainer, the
radio hour is a vent for the unlimited supply of campus talent.
Many a student who is blessed with the ability to perform rarely
finds occasion to expose his skill. He has difficulty finding a field
for development. Too, the radio public and fellow students are
interested listeners to the unassuming and imperfect amateur.
The Emerald and station KORE have organized the hour funda
mentally for this purpose. No other way may an ambitious student
perform. The Junior Vodvil is held only once each year—sometimes
not then. Here only a selected group is given a chance—but on the
radio hour ample time will be found for any worthy aspirant.
Keen interest was shown in a contest sponsored last year by
the Emerald. It was merely indicative of the vast field from which
bi-weekly programs may draw. People are tired of listening to |
“canned” music. They are tired of listening to electrical transcrip- [
tions and concerts by individuals in whom they do not maintain a j
personal interest. A campus tinge will be given the Emerald radio j
hours. Each program will be primarily for the entertainment of
students, faculty, and boosters of the University of Oregon.
Let Dad Have His Way
SATURDAY, October 25, will be a red-letter day on the University
of Oregon calendar on one condition that more fathers attend
the third annual “Dads’ Day” to be observed then on the campus
than have attended the affairs of the past two years.
“Dads’ Day” is one of the best of Oregon's new traditions and
the Emerald sees no reason why this year should not see the largest
influx of fathers to the campus. The last two “Dads’ Days” have
been successful. But that does not mean that this year’s event
should be no more than that. Let’s make October 25 a record
breaker for attendance. The third time is the charm—the old say
A record attendance of Dads this year will go far towards j
strengthening the Oregon Dads’ association, which is working with !
the best interests of the University at heart. And a day in Eugene j
will give visiting fathers a closer contact with the University their '
sons and daughters have chosen.
Entertainment galore has been planned for “Dads’ Day.”
There's the Oregon-ldaho football game in the afternoon on Hay
ward field, the annual banquet at McArthur court that evening,
and special luncheons and dinners at fraternity and sorority houses.
Let Dad have his day. He’ll enjoy it and so will you. Write
to YOUR dad now and be sure to get him here October 25.
It’s a Real Band!
WHEN is ii band an asset ?
During the past few years an attempt lias been made to
have a worthy organization of trained musicians represent Oregon
in the form of a band. Until last year stintents openly ridiculed the
organization. It was a sort of hit and miss proposition. There was
no regular training course, and if the organization was started
within the first month of the fall term it was a lucky break.
Today a large party of representative Oregon citizens will in
vade Seattle on a challenge trip for the Oregon-Washing ton foot
ball game to be played in Portland October 18 and the big attrac
tion of that notable party will be centered around a great Oregon
band. The band will parade the streets of Seattle and will also be
much in evidence around the Washington campus. The Oregon band
this year is u real asset.
Where credit belongs there let it rest. In this ease the credit
should go to none other than John Stehn, who is starting on his
second year as director of the Oregon band. Mr. Stehn has worked
hard to make the Webfoot musicians among the best on the coast,
and he has succeeded. Instead of waiting until school was begun, '
the members of the band started rehearsals during Rush Week. It
was not a small group of 30 or 40 players, but an organization of
Hard work on the pari of the members of the band and untiring
and painstaking effort on the part of Mr. Stehn have contributed
to the success of this year's organization. The 1030 Oregon band
will be a great asset to the University.
Since we are undergoing a period of business depression and ■
finances seem to be flowing less freely than they should, why not
organize an anti-haircut league?
Some agitation has been felt among campus women for advanc
ing the date of Dads’ Day. Could it be scheduled before the Wash
ington game it might mean a few new fur coats.
Students enter the University because they cannot secure jobs
0 and have nowhere else to go. according to an a'■tide which appeared
in. the Emerald yesterday morning. We wonder it students enter
the College. Side for the same purpose.

A Decade Ago
From the Emerald, October 9,
Opening the season’s dances,
275 couples gathered at the armory
last night for the first of the
Student Body dances. Though
this was the first dance to be giv
en by any campus organization,
the crowd was far lighter than ex
pected. These student body af
fairs are to be given from time to
time dr ring the school year.

Forg tfulness in a professor is
excusable when the offense is
nothing more than an attempt to
put a textbook in a vest pocket
and a chain-anchored watch in a
bookcase, but when mental lapses
result in class period irregulari
ties, about 1700 Oregon students
are up on their toes.
Classes taken up ahead of sched
ule time inconvenience students
who have to travel across the cam
pus from other classes held over
time by instructors engrossed in
their own work. Early roll calls
are unfair to the pupils. Classes
held late are injustices to other in
Punctuality is an essential of
success. Instructors should not en
courage tardiness by their own
abuse of time exactitude.

Wet toot Detective Agency
Solves Murky Mystery
The Wetfoot detective agency
has just solved one of the most
puzzling mysteries of the year. It
will be remembered that a week
before school started the Alpha
Phi radio came up missing. The
A. O. Pis, it has been revealed,
have just blossomed out with one
Motive: Several of the heavy
steadies who clutter up the Alpha
Phi parlor during dull afternoons,
were heard to mutter that they
wished the (censored) thing were
in purgatory. The reason given
was that it was very difficult to
whisper swfet nothings into the
girl's lily white ear with the (cen
sored) thing playing “Stars and
Stripes Forever’’ full blast. Also,
that when things were getting ser
ious the girls could arise, disen
gage themselves and walk over to
the radio on pretext of either turn
ing it off or on. Also that it of
fered a good excuse to spend a
quiet evening at home instead of
going up the millrace. Further,
the Alpha O's needed a radio to
drown out the sounds of revelry

Turns again home.

All communications are to be
addressed To the Editor, Oregon
Daily Emerald. They shall not

the author desire, only initials
will be published. The editor
maintains the right to withhold
publication should he see fit.
To the Editor;
After reading the letter by A. T.
and M. R. in yesterday's Emerald,
I am convinced that there are still
a lot of people that think the Uni
versity is running a day nursery
instead of an infirmary.
What a pity that their friend
wasn’t admitted to the infirmary
two weeks ago. If I had been run
ning the place I wouldn’t have let
him in either. How would I know
that he was going to pay $26.25
for medical attention, a student
body ticket, and "gym itch”? As
far as I have been able to find out,
you can’t collect the benefits until
after you have registered and it
has only been a week and a half
since we did that.
A. T. and M. R. also have a
friend who was refused admission
over the telephone last night. If
the nurses in charge were to ad
mit all the students who called up
for a bed, the place would look
more like a fraternity or sorority
house sleeping porch than an in
I happened to be in the infirm
ary myself when he made a per
sonal call to gain admission. In
fact, I was standing about three
feet from him. I didn’t hear him
do any begging though. If he had,
I am just kind-hearted enough to
have given him my bed and slept
in the sink with the rest of the
drips. But as it was, he got a bed
without having to do any more
than have his temperature taken.
The next day he was worrying
about getting out.
If a man who is seemingly on
the very brink of death can be
brought back to complete recovery
in 18 hours, the infirmary can’t
be such a bad place. Personally,
if they can work such miracles as
that, I think that I’ll buy some
stock in the institution.
