A Cry From Wilderness
THE voice of one crying in the wilderness over the "line of petty
personalities and slanderous gossip” which was heard on the
Emerald of the Air last Sunday night was not raised in vain. We
heard it and we listened attentively, ft is printed in this issue.
Previously we have told the public that the radio hour every
Thursday and Sunday was primarily for the University and the
associated students. We might add now, Mr. McCormick, that sta
tion KORE has a radius of approximately one-sixth of that pro
pounded in your radical epistle, and in the event that people of
Eugene's community do not care to harken back to the days when
they attended school, listening in is not compulsory.
Granting that the initial chapter of "parlor propaganda” was
in a large part extemporaneous an attempt will be made in the
future to enact a broader scope that fewer living organizations will
be overlooked. The Emerald agrees that centralized publicity and
the alleged dirty "campus dirt” will be curbed and censored for each
For all those who were offended during the Emerald radio hour
last Sunday evening and all those who fear that in the future they,
top, may be embarrassed, the Emerald of the Air apologizes and
asks that the names be sent in and a definite quietus will be placed
For our correspondent, Mr. McCormick, we would like to re
mind him again that the hour is definitely for University students,
that the station has an exceedingly small radius due to federal reg
ulation, and that the Emerald of the Air apologizes for overlooking
his name last Sunday.
Amicus O. S. C.
FRIENDSHIP is the greatest succor to progress. Without friend
ship advancement and well-being would be only visionary, to
gain friends contacts must be made, and to sustain amity a spirit
of co-operat-ion must be in constant existence.
Between two neighboring institutions of higher learning a
spirited feeling of rivalry is a natural existence. Live-wire students
with pep, enthusiasm, and loyalty to their own school cannot sub
sist without it. It is life and we do not and would not want to
Yet instances have been brought to light of hatred born from
this rivalry. Even physical encounters anil dealings with person
alities are remnants of earlier times. Remember the old Calford
spirit where the opposing school was always an enemy ? They
would be mobbed, razzed and ridiculed. We laughed at them
called the pictures absurd, high-sehoollsh, and ultra-collegiate.
We will speak of the University of Oregon and Oregon State
college. Modern institutions of the present day are made up of
men and women students who are broad-minded, sincere, and gen
tlemanly. They are anxious to advance and are working for the
progress of their school. One of the most valuable factors for the
furtherance of the institution is, as with the individual who wants
to climb, the co-operative and friendly spirit which could be and
will be built up between the schools.
For the tirst time on record in the history of the University of
Oregon, student body officials of the respective schools have con
ferred primarily for the purpose of creating congeniality between
themselves and their institutions. Last Sunday, A. S. U. O. Presi
dent George Cherry and a representative of the Oregon Daily Em
erald exchanged ideas, advice, and friendship with George Knutsen,
president of the associated students, and Larry Warren, editor of
the Barometer, on the Oregon State college campus.
Destruction of a lasting rivalry, creation of fellowship, and the
organization of a new and more human spirit between the neigh
bors would be a welcomed revolution to the modern student in each
school. It will be the aim of the Emerald to forward this co-opera
tive movement. Students on the University campus who are not
the narrow-minded, conceited, smartalecky type will join whole
Oregon State students are fellow-workmen all grasping at
higher ideals as are members of A. S. U. O. Many of them are
natives of Oregon attend the school best fitted to suit their needs.
They pay their registration fees, pledge fraternities and sororities,
and hate to get up for their 8 o'clocks exactly as does the Oregon
student. Oregon State college officers are men of the highest type.
They enjoy their work, are fair, and willing to work co-ordinately
with their neighboring association.
For the present year and for years ahead the Emerald wishes
progress, advancement, and the best of luck to Oregon State college.
The Marines Tell It
ii?t■'ELL it to the marines."
Long enough have the marines heard that expression,
which has been flung back and forth in American repartee for
years. Today the marines tell it.
In the concerts this afternoon and evening the baud will say
it in brass at McArthur court What they will toll is up to stu
dents and Eugene people to find out, but this is what the Morning
Oregonian says of them;
"The Marine band does not have to depend upon this notable
record for its high standing. For many years it has been regarded
as one of the best, if not the best, band in the United States, »The
audience that heard it in Portland fully appreciated its worth and
demonstrated that approval during its two concerts in this city.
Playing neither heavy nor light music exclusively, it selected pro
grams that appealed to all who heard it. It represents perfection
m band music.”
After tonight, it seems possible, music-lovers of Eugene will
never say, “Tell it to the marines"; but. instead, "Let the Marines

which was interspersed with the
