The Penalty Goes!
ROBERT ALLEN, ex-managing editor of the Emerald, was
granted another hearing. This time it was before the group
which recommended his suspension from all student activities.
His plea for readmittance to participation in school affairs was
presented. A statement from John Creech and Brian Mimnaugh,
other students who were deposed, was produced as evidence of
Allen’s innocence. It was a final request that the actions of the
executive council be retracted.
ALLEN STILL REMAINS ON ACTIVITIES PROBATION!
The student relations committee, upon whose recommendation
the executive council could reconsider the case, is in no way
guilty of maliciously acting unjustly. On the contrary, the mem
bers of the influential group believe that, they are acting in the
best interests of the University. They believe, no doubt, that it
is for the progress of the institution and betterment of student
government that those who have acted unwisely and misused the
responsibility conferred upon them should receive a reasonable
amount of discipline. But will a seemingly unjust penalty upon
one of the offenders, with little move toward retraction, gain the
desired ends? We are tempted to exclaim, NO!
Let us carefully weigh the facts of the situation . The three
students are being punished for their involution in a student rally
which disrupted the routine of the University educational program
on a Friday preceding the Oregon-Oregon State football contest,
a game annually accompanied by demonstrations of student spirit.
Action was taken against John Creech, ex-yell king, Brian Mim
naugh, ex-rally chairman, and Robert Alien, ex-managing editor.
Creech had practically completed his duties as the leader of
yells. His work during the past, season has given him a satisfac
tory record. He had no more duties to look forward to the sus
pension from activities did not strike him hard We might sub
stitute the name of Mimnaugh for Creech and repeat the same.
Termination of both official duties was nearly coincident with
their suspension. The two rally leaders admit their mistake in
judgment they confess anticipation of classroom disruption ihe
morning of the rally. They deny violation of a gentleman's agree
ment as has been charged by official bodies. Perhaps this agree
ment. was in spirit rather than in fact. They are still guilty, and
we believe the action of the executive council is justified on those
The third character in Ihe play now staged before us is one
who had still two terms of work ahead. He has toiled, sometimes
all day and all night without sleep, to provide the campus with
news. He WAS the managing editor. It was his duty to print
the news as it officially came to him. He was doing his duty when
he printed stories about the Carnegie grant pledge day football.
Likewise was he doing his duty when he printed a rally story
when it came from the rally chairman. He slipped made a mis
take when he wrote a banner which inflamed student spirit and
aroused faculty indignation. The banner read OREGON SPIRIT
IS ON THE WARPATH RALLIES ARE THE ORDER OF THE
DAY ANY TIME ANY PLACE. Simple, isn't it? but provoc
ative to many. Creech and Mimnaugh spoke for Allen's innocence,
but their words were in vain.
We are not defending the rally from which arose the confu
sion neither do we condemn the Oregon spirit. But we do defend
one whose offense is less and penalty is greater.
After all, it would have been more logical and more profes
sional-like to penalize the head of the offensive newspaper rather
than grasp through the bars for its sub-official.
Best of Luck, Men!
Ik N exceedingly distinct honor has been Conferred upon fifteen
University of Oregon men. They have been chosen as the
outstanding men in the sophomore class to become the charter
members of a new underclass honorary. The future of the group
now rests in their hands.
Their selection to the ranks of the honored class of honorary
members has left, weighing heavily upon their sophomore shoul
ders, not too broad with experience in University life, a responsi
bility ol great tonnage. A closely knit organization must evolve
from this fifteen, many of whom have never met. To do this so
that the new honorary may last interminably, hours of work and
careful planning will be essential.
Will the choice of the charter members and the choice of their
successors bring the type of men which will perpetuate honor and
usefulness within the organization? That remains with the group
now chosen merely another of its responsibilities.
Will the gioup outline its duties on the campus tit gain utmost
efficiency and recognition? Yes, it careful thought and skill are

♦ EDITORS HITHER AND YON ♦
An Editor CJets The Ax
A University of Oregon student
who happened by dint of hard work
and ability to reach the all im
portant post of managing editor
of the student daily news paper
has been removed by the student
council, all powerful executive
body of the associated students. He
was removed because so the dis
patchc , : iy, he printed in the stu
dent dai!/ a story concerning a
proposed pre-game rally. The ral
ly was fr >wned upon by the facul
ty and the student council had
agreed that it should meet with
student executive disapproval.
The- fact remains, however, that
Bob Allen, who was the student
managing editor, printed a news
story which happened to be an ac
curate news story.
Here is a point that is vital in
newspaper making whether the
newspaper happens to be publish
ed by students or by adults: News
is one thing and is handled in one
manner while editorial opinion is
quite another. Had Allen been
guilty of editorially offering oppo
sition to the student government
his nominal employer, that em
ployer might have been justified
in removing him. In the present
case Allen only printed a NEWS
story which was exactly what he
j was employed to do. Had he
; FAILED to print the story he
! would have shown lack of ability
; and would most certainly have
been subject to censure. He could
not help the fact that the news
story told of something that was
contrary to the agreed policy of
the student organization.
The student action in ousting the
Emerald editor shows an amazing
lack of grasp of fundamentals on
the part of the members of the
