To Understand Youth
rTNO the folks at home:
If your daughter, dressed in dainty lounging pajamas,
entertains her boy friend at home all evening . . .
If your son stumbles, uncertain of step, home at 4 o’clock
a. m. from a fraternity dance . . .
When he tells you about the swell babes he's been out with
at school . . .
When he calls his home-town girl on the telephone and says
“Hello, pal, be seeing you about 9:30,” (just when you’re ready
to go to bed) . . .
If he refuses to get up at 7 a. m. and sleeps until noon . . .
When your daughter borrows a fag just as you were thinking
how much she had grown since the picture on the mantle was
taken . . .
Or when she comes in, frazzle haired, from a Sunday after
noon picnic . . .
. . . just remember: “The young are able to adapt themselves
to change better than the old, and the old folks cannot under
Thus asserts Philip A. Parsons, dean of the school of applied
social science, in a discussion of the causes of the present social
unrest. Perhaps he is correct.
In the modern day changes are being brought about so rap
idly that major developments occur within the lifetime of an
individual and it is inherently difficult for him to adjust himself
to those variations. The activities of youth is only one example
of the change. It has come about abruptly. The older people
of today, who are unable to believe that the situation is any
thing but unnatural, have had insufficient time for adjustment.
Lengthy courtships of our fathers and mothers have nearly
passed. True love, to many, finds a varied interpretation. Be
liefs are being torn down precedent cracks.
But remember, folks at home, the world will live on and on
under this accelerating process of change and adaptation. It
cannot be halted. Truly, it is difficult to understand.
On Infirmary Needs
\ LTHOUGH four or five students have been turned away
from the inadequate infirmary at the University, there is
no great need for alarm. Every student turned away is not
barred from medical relief.
While the infirmary capacity is limited to 13 patients, the .
normal load requires, usually, less than that. The great need
of the University is for some OVERFLOW station, where in
times of epidemic students may be treated. Colleges all over
the United Stales have been growing slowly in the last few
years. It is unlikely that the once-proposed new infirmary at
the University would find use for all its wards, although the
time is approaching when the larger building will be essential.
But the University can get along temporarily without that In
Now could be built a small but adequate infirmary in place
of the antiquated and inconvenient residence in use. A model
establishment, it could easily handle the normal load without
having the huge overhead of the large building proposed a few
And when an epidemic comes, there are hospitals aplenty in
Eugene. Fees which students pay toward health service could
be combined with the savings from having a smaller building.
The money so gained ought to be sufficient to pay for hospital
treatment of students requiring such treatment.
♦ EDITORS HITHER AND YON ♦
When one of our professors re
marked in a class the other day
that the members of the staff ami
the students were "all students
together,” we were frankly skepti
cal about the whole matter. Per
haps experience with several cours
es, in which discussion and car
ried on strictly for academic pur
poses, with the professor regular
ly summing up matters with "the
right answer,” hail hardened us
to such pleasant, but pat, phrases.
Right at the start we would in
terpret the title "student” in its
best sense; individuals, young in
mind, who are seeking to solve
certain problems In a seientitie.
logical manner, with minds as un
prejudiced as possible. We rec
ognize the value of a stern pro
fessor, who pummels students who
are sloppy in their thinking and
phraseology; but we are most def
initely opposed to the professoi
who stuffs his own opinions down
the throats of unwilling students,
either because he has thought till
the matters over, and has estab
lished an unchangeable attitude,
or because he is too lazy intellectu
ally to keep up in his research, and
must cover up his rustiness.
The former group of those whom
we oppose are the lesser of two |
evils, we admit. Hut just as they
have had freedom to form their
ov. n opinions so should they ai- i
low the students the same privi
lege. The student who graduates
from the university, however little
real knowledge he may have ac
quired has developed an attitude
of thinking, which stays with him
for some time to come. If this
has been guided and not imposed
on him by the professors, he has
gained a great deal; but if each
and every brain-child is adopted,
and not created free of borrowed
opinions, he is badly off, intellec

That is the series of pictures
which flash in the majority of
minds where the word “college” is
mentioned. The movies of college
life have exploited the idea. Dance
orchestras have made use of this
naive picture of colleges. The
manners and conduct of many stu
dents have contributed much to
building up this erroneous impres
sion of what life at an educational
institution is supposed to be.
The glamorous and the romantic
elements are here. Wherever there
are four thousand youths together
there will be these. But the idea
of the college campus as a rendez

A Decade Ago
Wednesday, January 26, 1 921
It has been discovered that the
term "piggin” dates back to the
year 1905, when a swain lived at
the dorm. He had a girl over at
Springfield living on a farm. He
made a trip over there each Sun
day. The other boys began teas
ing him about his date and also
asked about the livestock, espec
ially the pigs. After that they
called it "piggin.”
