The Oregon* Daily Emerald, official publication of the Associated Students of the
University of Oregon, Eugene, issued daily except Sunday and Monday, during the*
college year. Member of the Pacific Intercollegiate Press. Entered in the postoffice at
Eugene, Oregon, as second class matter. Subscription rates, $2.50 a year. Advertising
rates upon application. Phone, Manager: Office, Local 214; residence, 324.
THE executive council last night, assumed responsibility, exercised
its right as supreme body of the associated students and deal!
out punishment to three members of the student body for what they
believed to be a violation of a gentleman's agreement. Rally leaders
and the managing editor of the Emerald were placed on activities
probation for inciting a student demonstration which disrupted classes
Friday morning before a football game.
Wisely enough the executive council is fulfilling its duties in
handling aftairs which fall directly under its jurisdiction. An ex
tremely difficult problem to deal with, a problem which has grown
tremendously in importance in the eyes of the council with furthered
deliberation, but which is appraised less seriously by the University
students, has been solved and marked down in the records of the
associated students as history. The three students may not, during
winter term, render assistance to the student body.
A violation of confidence lias given the executive council suf
ficient grounds to inflict the punishment upon two of the rally leaders,
although this decision is antagonistic to the more lenient policy sug
gested recently by the Emerald. If, as reported, the yell king and
the rally chairman agreed with the student relations committee in
a meeting only the night before that classes would not be disturbed
on that Friday morning, we waive our suggestion.
The case of the managing editor of the Emerald strikes us as
different. Here action, it seems, should have been confined to disci
pline within the organization of the publication itself. Instead he
has been lifted by kite strings and deposited in a limbo of probation
beyond reach of Emerald officials. He was uot present at the meeting
when the pledge, later violated, was given; his duties prohibited his
attendance, and he had no knowledge that any such promise had
been made. Reports printed by him seemed official they came from
the rally heads. An unintentionally provocative heading written on
the rally announcement constitutes his offense yet lie suffers pven
more than those for whose action there seems less excuse. Should
there be no discrimination between a wrong committed intentioftally
and one so unintentional?
After The Battle, Mother- -
NOW that the home football season is over and student body tickets
are no longer to be regarded as the basic currency of campus
exchange, we can look at them in a new light.
After the battle come the bouquets, and we wish to commend
and congratulate the graduate manager's staff upon the excellence
of the associated students' concert series it has just announced for
this year. All holders ol student tickets can look forward to attend
ing without charge five concerts of a type which would attract much
attention in the musical capitals of the world.
Maier and Pattison are undisputed masters of the two-piano field;
Florence Austral, soprano, and Nathan Milstein, violinist, are at the
very top of their respective fields. The Portland Symphony orchestra
always attracts a large student audience, and the students are scarcely
less appreciative of the unusually fine work of the University Bym
jJhony orchestra and the University Glee clubs.
Several years ago the student body voted to add the sum of
seventy-five cents to the term fees to finance an annual concert
series. This is a bright page in the history of the associated students,
and it is to be regretted that more students do not take advantage
of their earned opportunity to attend the concerts.
But the series for this year can hardly fail to attract capacity
crowds to McArthur court. It is far and away the best that has
ever been scheduled. Congratulations and thanks, graduate manager

Although The Daily hr. been

tween California and University of
Southern California only as an in

comes as an admittance that 1’res
ident Stern Altshuler and his Cali
fornia executive committee mem
bers are purely politicians endeav
oring to further their own end
and not those of the students of j
University of California.
The Daily, it must be remem
bered, does not take a stand one
way or the other on the recent
controversy aroused by editorials
printed in The Californian.
The issue at stake is the censor
ship of the press. Editor Arthur
Arlett, who is to be commended
for saying what he had to say in
spite of opposition, had a perfect
right to print what he believed to
be legitimate editorial opinion.
Cense-’ ! ip of the student press
would result in such feeble jour
nalistic efforts that it would be
needless to call universities as ex
ponents of liberal and free thought.
The Daily condemns the action
of the California executive com
mittee and hopes the censorship
will be removed as hastily as it
was applied. The Stanford Daily.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 23.— j
(Special) Who ever started the ■
idea; “out in the West where men
are men,” was all wet, according
to T. D. Kelley, senior editor ,»f
the Cornell Daily Sun, who was
surprised to hear that in western
schools women are given equal
chance with the men in campus
politics, publications, and other
* * *
’“Women don’t have any stand
ing on our campus,” Kelley smil
ed. “We figure that Cornell was
originally a man’s school and
should he a man’s school, there
fore, we don’t want women and
refuse to let them have any part
in campus activities. They don’t
rate at all with any of the fra
ternities on the campus.”
* * #
As Cornell the student body
never gathers as a group for social
functions, Kelley said. Each fra
ternity has a house party every
term to which women are invited
from other colleges and nearby
towns, but rarely any of the local
co-eds. These house parties last
an entire week-end, the men giv
ing up their house to the women
The entertainment runs night
and day, Kelley said, “and “by
the time a house party breaks
up you’re about as badly bent in
more than one way.” Dances at
a house party are usually sched
uled for 11 p. m. to 4 a. m., but
on most occasions they last all :
night, according to the Cornell
“The Oregon Daily Emerald is
a nice little sheet,” Kelley said. I
read almost every issue and cer- ^
tainly get bang out of the features. '
Wish our paper could use more of 1
that light stuff.”
The Cornell Daily Sun, although
run by the Cornell chapter of Sig- ■
nta Delta Chi and members of the
student body, is the local town |
daily. Profits from the paper are
divided by the editorial staff. The
editor's salary for the year runs
between $1,500 and $2,500, the Cor
r.ellian student states.
* * *
The size of the Cornell daily
varies from C to 18 pages. A
news service is used extensively
to fill the paper. “In fact we
use it too much,” Kelley admit
ted. Reporters have no definite
heats, each reporter is simply
limited by the extent of his
imagination. “It does mean con
siderable duplication,” the editor
agreed, hut it’s good training in
that it makes a reporter hustle
if he intends to keep on the
staff.” The year is divided into
periods of six weeks and a con
test runs for each period. The
winner is promoted to the upper
news staff, or “pay” end of the
paper, and the contest goes
ruthlessly on. To win a place on
the upper news staff means plen
ty of hard work, Kelley said.
* * *
Kelley was interested in the fact
that Oregon students can attend
the University for a whole year on
$900 or less. ‘‘It costs me about
$3,000 a year. I managed to get by
on $2,200 one year, but it was a
terrible strain,” the Cornell stu
dent said. Fees at Cornell run be
tween $400 and $500. “But then,
Cornell is well known throughout
the country, whereas few people
have ever heard of the University
of Oregon; no insult intended, but
just an excuse for our high fees.”

INN i Kt t t IONN ON BEHAVIOR
WHILE VI’ HOME
In order to keep up with the
hots and girls from Oregon Mote
who will be back in the borne town
tor the Thanksgiving holidays, it
is absolutely imperative that every
sludeul do his or iter level best
to tie collegiate to the extreme.
One of the duet requisites is
dress. The proper garb should
consist of a rooter’s lid, a yellow
slicker with a two-foot green "O'’
or duck on the back of it, one
slightly used pipe, a stock of col
legiate phrases, and a swagger
which consists of hunching the
shoulders and dragging the feet.
Greet all the boys with a big
slap on the back, and then break
into a University yell.

BE DEMOCRATIC—Take out
all the high school sheik’s girls,

is wrong with their dress. Quietly

Town of Gold Hill
An ancient Indian burial ground
lying across the Rogue from the
straggling lfttle town of Gold Hill,
Oregon, has been the scene of sev
eral recent excavations by Dr. L.
S. Cressman, professor of sociol
ogy. The work is being done as a
part of general research in Ore
About 15 skeletons have been
found in varying stages of preser
vation. The moist sand in which
the burials have been made has
caused almost complete decompo
sition in the majority of the bur
ials. These excavations have un
earthed eight obsidian knives vary
ing from six to thirteen inches in
length. Two were buried with
each corpse. This means that some
corpses were buried with- no ac
companying knives, Dr. Cressman
states. Knives and pipes had been
previously unearthed by the for
mer owner of the field in which
the mound lies.
“There is no way at present to
fix even the approximate date of
the burials, but the complete ab
sence of any signs of the white
man’s culture indicates that the
