Let Bonfire Live
AND now comes a threat to the traditional frosh bonfire.
Denunciation of the policy of the associated students in
permitting the freshman class to construct and raze a huge bonfire
on the chest of Skinner’s butte lias been evidenced from many pa
rental communications to the University of Oregon. Their objec
tions are just and perfectly reasonable. They believe that the cold
night air and often extreme weather conditions menace the health
of their sons and daughters. Obviously this is correct, as dispen
sary reports disclose a marked increase in patients. It is the duty
of the associated students to remedy this situation and amend the
plans in such a manner as to disperse the few strong objections.
Still another objection supposedly held by the student affairs
committee which recently acted to recommend the exti^tion of
the traditional feature of the first-year class is the financial. It
is true that much money is expended for the rental on truck and
the purchase of oil and other material to create a “greater flame
than that which their predecessors provided.”
The Emerald opposes any official action to destroy the bonfire
as a class tradition. It believes that modifications of the activity
and the spectacle itself can be made, decreasing immensely the
objections which have been announced. Some form of freshman
activity is essential and for this reason the bonfire provides an
excellent opportunity to unite the members of the class through a
sturdy 100 per cent organization.
The Emerald suggests that primarily the size of the fire he
restricted to four feet in height with other dimensions, length and
width, remaining as before. Throughout previous years the mate
rial has been constructed as high as 20 feet, built with solid founda
tion, and ability to burn for many, many hours. The public is
interested in the fire only during the parade and foundation suffi
cient to make a flare of an hour's duration would be obviously
Restricting the height of the fiery emblem would call for less
work, hence less time taken in construction and from curricular
activities. We suggest that officials allow the freshmen fire
builders to work only Thursday afternoon and evening until 9:30
and Friday until the limited height has been reached.
A marked reduction in class expenditures would he felt by this
revision as the truck rental period and material requirements would
be vastly reduced. A slight added expense would be necessary to
engage the services of persons who might guard the material
throughout Thursday night. Students should not he permitted to
do this as one major objection may be traced to this point. Too,
we believe it is one of the bonfire’s detrimental features.
The bonfire should live. The time has not yet come for Us
death ceremony. Returning alumni will be looking for it. The
freshman class demands it. We believe we have outlined a satis
factory program by which the tradition may continue.
We Like ’Em
OREGON students have responded very well to the attempt of
the rally committee to secure better organization for pep rallies ]
this year and the novel idea of a rally dance before a game proved
very successful yesterday. The floor was crowded with happy stu
dents dancing to the music of a real campus band not the hap
hazard organization that has characterized these affairs in past
years and everybody had an enjoyable time.
The Emerald is in favor of the continuance of similar affairs
before important games to take the place of spontaneous, unor
ganized rallies which have demoralized classes after a triumph over
a major football foe. We feel that pep should be displayed before
and during the game and if Oregon wins we should act like college
men and women after the victory and not be swayed by the primi
tive mob instinct to have a few hundred students disrupt the aca
demic work of the majority.
Oregon women should enter into the spirit of the. rally dances
more than they have done and if they will do their part and attend
the aifairs the dances will be even more enjoyable. Friday after
noon there were several score of men in attendance more than
women with the resulting congestion of long lines of "stags.”
If enough spirit is shown the rally dance of today may develop
into regular.all-campigi dance.-, in the future to enable the students
at Oregon to become better acquainted in an informal way.
Since we have discovered that the bandmen walked 11 miles i
while in Portland last week-end, a suggestion might be made to
purchase bicycles for each man. Handle bars provide an excellent
base for music lyres.
Headline in Emerald: CHECK REVEALS OVER 700 DADS TO
COME HERE. Our dads used to write notes on the reverse of our
monthly allowances, too.
Among constructive suggestions we wish to add that the Dell,
should consider purchasing a new burglar alarm.

From Afar; Finds
Son in Infirmary
C. A. Stutsman, municipal judge
of Los Angeles, arrived in Eugene
yesterday expecting to spend Dad’s
Day with his son, CarL He
learned, however, that his son was
ill in the University infirmary.
Carl wanted his dad to be on the
campus Friday and Saturday, so
the news of his illness had been
kept as a secret.
It is believed that Stutsman has
traveled farther than any other
dad for the celebration. The trip
from Los Angeles is over 1,100
Stutsman naturally was sur
prised to find his son ill, but he
took the shock with a smile. He
will celebrate Dad’s Day just the
same, by adopting Carl’s room
mate, Edward Wagner. They will
attend the football game and ban
quet together. Carl and his dad
will celebrate, too, but not on the

moved to the Pacific Christian
hospital, where he is resting easy.
'Remove Your Lid’
Is Infirmary Edict
pRESHMEN who walk into the
infirmary must do so minus
their green lids. Such is the
ultimatum as laid down by Mar
garet Calahan, nurse in charge,
“Oregon’s traditions will be up
held here as elsewhere on the
campus,’’ said the nurse to a
certain wandering freshman who
happened to forget to remove his
lid when he entered the infirm
ary. Which goes to prove that
a freshman leads a dog’s life
even in the halls of mercy.
