To Make Education Pay
ry\HE riddle, of what proportion of American high school grad
uates should continue their education in college becomes
tangible to this campus today in the presence of more than 500
delegates to the annual high school conference held under the
auspices of the University. * Among college students, considera
tion of the problem of how many college students are justified
in coming to an institution of higher learning is befogged by
the mental reservation which each makes that he, of course, is
not to be classed with those who might more profitably be
spending their college years elsewhere.
The high-school students who are our guests today could
hardly be termed a representative cross-section of the student
bodies from which they come. They are student body presidents,
school editors, presidents of girls’ leagues, and are, after making
due allowance for the deficiencies of the democratic method of
selecting popular leaders, the cream of their kind in their pos
session of leadership ability and correlative high mentality.
Generally speaking, this is the type of high-school student
who is best fitted for and may be least harmed by a four-year
period in college. Their demonstrated superiority should be given
an opportunity to develop along cultural lines, and their expe
rience at leadership should imply that they have the brand of
common sense which will not allow the artificialities of college
life to unfit them for the grimmer realities which lie beyond
This cannot be said for more than a small part of a typical
high school graduation class, and few people are today so blinded
by the myth of the panacean value of universal education as to
maintain that a college education for a large proportion of high
school graduates is even theoretically desirable. It is somewhat
depressing to observe the rigorous methods which universities
everywhere are adopting to rid themselves of thousands of stu
dents who are pathologically immune to the virus of higher edu
cation. Much money and much time would be saved if this
group would never start to college, and underclass courses could
be made of greater value to those students who are really at
home in the collegiate classroom, or those who command possi
bilities of conversion into students of a desirable calibre.
So we say to our younger guests: Welcome for today, and
welcome next fall for you and your high school graduates if you
come to the campus as students. But be positive that you can
make four years of college justify the time and expense involved
before you come.
Shunning Fine Arts?
/ANE of the quieter traditions of the University the Sunday
afternoon music programs at the school of music audito
rium will again be observed this week-end when the winter
term series will begin with a concert given by Lena Belle Tartar,
Whether they are arranged in concert form, as the coming
one will be, or as a vesper service, these weekly programs pro
vide good music, presented in a most pleasing manner. The
school of music and the vespers committee have always devoted
a great deal of study to the work of planning and conducting
the services, and their quality has become a source of pride to
the University. The remarkable work of John Stark Evans, or
ganist, and the admirable singing of the polyphonic choir are
but two of the “highlights” of these occasions.
Yet, while the auditorium is usually fairly well filled on Sun
day afternoons, a careful observer would note that Eugene
townspeople make up at least hall' of the audience. The observer
would also remark that the nucleus of each audience is a group
of "regulars." His conclusion would be that, after all, com
paratively few students have really learned to enjoy vespers. On
an average, probably less than 100 students attend.
Those who hold that the interest in fine arts is rapidly
dwindling might point to this attendance as a proof of their con
tention. But the large student turn-outs at the A. S. U. O. con
cert series have repeatedly shown that Oregon students do take
ar, interest in good music.
It seems more likely that the majority of students merely
have not acquired the habit of attending.
With the start of the new term's program it is to be hoped
that a greater share of the student body will acquire that habit.
A Wire to the Webfoots!
■^yfEBEOOT casaba men left yesterday for the beginning of
the conference basketball series with the Husky five at
the University of Washington. They left unaware that more
than three thousand students at home were anxiously awaiting
the outcome. They left quietly.
Yet, without feeling that they are overemphasizing athletics,
students can boost a tea^n tiie team is their representative and
it must come out ahead m competition. It takes support to
push a team to the winning point, and that support must be sent
to the team and its coach by a flood of telegrams and pep mes
sages. Each living organization should tend its word the Web
foots may be found at the New Yin. lungton hotel. Wire!

Monday morning the men's gym
was a house of system-—and the
Igloo a m insion of efficiency. Two
years ago I stood two hours in line
to get my registration envelope ’
and had to ferret the remotest re
cesses of the campus to secure in
structors’ signatures. Monday the
battalion of officials on the main
floor of McArthur bore mute testi
mony to the University’s effort t.5
combat the unemployment problem
For all this, I thank the regis
trar. Yet it took me seven hours
I waited three hours for three
six-minute conferences; and then
my advise*- was too busy to advise.
I made my schedule of those things
which were/most opportune and
let the future take care of itself.
My adviser had others to put
through the mill and when my con
ferences arrived neither he nor 1
were in a mood to plan.
Several California colleges hold
pre-registration. Would not the
same system be valuable here? O
could we not, at least, schedule all
adviser conferences when the ad
viser would have time to advise?

Advice to Visiting Delegates
In order to insure the visiting
delegate that he do the proper
thing at the wrong time and thus
leave a mal-impression, we, the
scribes of this column, have decid
ed to take a step forward and then
another, and then another, to go
on a regular hike, in fact and give
some timely advice to the visitor
on the strange foibles of campus
custom. If you want to get by,
I. —The first instruction that we
can think of, is never, oh never,
utter that sacriligious word
“FRAT.” It is not known why but
that word sends a chill down the
spine of the listener. Fraternity is
II. —Be democratic. Slap all the
men in the house on the back, of
fer them a big cigar, and yell at
them as far as you can see them.
This will insure them of your
III. Be assertive. Assure them
that you are a hot shot in Podunh
high school. Tell them that you
think Oregon is a pretty good
school, but that you think some
other school is better. This is to
demonstrate to them that you have
a mind of your own. Speak in
glowing terms of the fraternity
down the street. This is to spur
them to do bigger and better
things themselves to merit your

IV. —Wear a catcher’s mask be

vent some of the University guys
from stepping on your face when
they get in and out of bed. Many
and many are the visiting delegates
who have been terribly mutilated j
because they failed to take this
* * *
V. —Never, oh never, leave your
clothes out in public, while in a
fraternity house. If you do leave
them out, it would be best to put
a tag on them telling that they
belong to a delegate. You're safe
then. Your danger lies in the fact
that they may think they belong
to a fraternity brother.
VI. —There are many other
things that we might tell you, hut
the most important thing is to wait

on the chap next to you before

We have heard from various
sources that people in general
