-TV That question was put to the members of the associated
students of the University of Oregon in the first all-student assem
bly ever held on the campus, by George Cherry, president of the
A. S. U. O. Cherry declared that it was his ambition to organize
the students into a group with enough spirit to enjoy a regular
monthly assembly with student talent featured.
The Emerald supports the views of Mr. Cherry on the idea—
and thinks the assemblies would tend to draw the students of Ore
gon closer together and to offer an outlet for talented students to
furnish the entertainment.
The weekly assemblies of former years were discontinued last
year after they had become so boring to the average student that
only those who were compelled to go mainly freshmen—attended.
The reason for the poor attendance was obviously too many long
and flowery speeches with little time offered for lighter subjects.
Our idea of a real student assembly is one that would portray
the lighter side of student life let the students arrange it, man
age it, and then feature nothing but student talent. Make it inter
esting to the average student and if there is any business to be
done, make it short. Soon the affairs will become a recognized
.part of the student life at Oregon.
In order that others may also state their ideas the Emerald
will welcome contributions from anyone on the subject. A careful
study of the situation is being planned by the Emerald with a series
of articles and editorials dealing with the problem to appear from
time to time.
Why Not Assemblies?
RE student assemblies feasible?
A Class Duty Ignored
HAT is wrong with the junior class spirit? Are they so slug
gish that they care little whether they have a secretary or
Yesterday’s polls totaled 71, indicating that an exceedingly
minor number of the class members showed interest in the election.
An excellent opportunity for someone to be railroaded through.
There are approximately 350 members in the junior class, but where
were they? Adequate publicity was given the election. Details
and management of the balloting were efficiently handled by offi
cials of the class. They sat in Villard hall patiently waiting the
arrival of their torpid and uninterested classmates. Only 74 came.
With the instillation of the new and vigorous Oregon spirit
into every student on the campus, and the embarking upon a new
era of progress for the University of Oregon, the junior class mem
bers seem to be playing a small part by slighting their own class
business so obviously. The position of secretary is one of honor to
be sure, but can that honor exist long if the class persists in playing
such a weak part in its elections?
Perhaps the class members were unbusiness-like enough to take
it for granted that both candidates for the office were well quali
fied for the position and cared little which was awarded the duty
and honor. True, had it not been for compliance with regulation,
the secretary would have been appointed. This would have dis
pensed with the embarrassing indication of a class minus the spirit.
Nearly 350 class members- only 74 voted.
ND now comes the executive council of the associated students
with a decree that for each new student membership card
issued to replace one lost, the applicant shall pay $4 more into the
Maybe the council has lost its usually keen understanidng of
finance, for it is selling an $11.50 ticket for but little over one-third
of its value. An executive council which hopes to rid itself of a
$150,000 debt can ill spare the difference.
Beyond peradventure ol a doubt the value of a ticket at towns
people’s rates in football alone last year was at least $11.50. The
news columns of this paper carried that explanation, which itself
came from the graduate manager's office. By implication, the $7.50
individual profit wasn't to be used for Eugene games held in Port
We agree with the emphasis placed on the football profit. Tt
would only muddle the thinking of ordinary-minded college students
to remember that because they must purchase season tickets to all
football games they must also pay $5 into a student building fund.
They might consider it an imposition to be required to practise
doubly in order that the “spontaneous organized cheering’’ be an at
truction at contest- They might ponder over the doubtful privilege
of being hacked on the library steps.
Yes. it is wiser to forget these things for college student
might not understand.

Due to Poor Quality

This is proved by the decrease in
