Guidance for the Men
(he vocational guidance program sponsored by the
Associated Women Students well under way, the possi
bility of having some sort of a similar program for men may
be in order. The women’s lectures have been well attended and,
after getting off to a rather inauspicious start, they have proven
to be very valuable.
Unorganized attempts have been made by the various schools
in past years to bring leading figures to the campus for lectures
which were thought to prove of help to men thinking of lifelong
vocations. All of these talks were well attended, but there was
little organization behind them. Various honoraries have also
had leaders of their professions on the campus from time to
time and have issued invitations to all interested in attending.
It is only natural that few men who were not members of the
groups put in an appearance.
In this modern day, with its many varied possibilities for em
ployment, it is difficult for a college student to decide on a
profession with only a background of college work behind him.
Statistics prove that a great percentage of college graduates,
going out into the business world, have found that they were
not suited for the work they chose. They lost valuable time in
making a change or in finding the positions best suited for
A plan whereby a series of lectures could be given on the
campus by leaders in the various professions each year might
be feasible. These affairs would be all-campus in their nature
without regard to the courses in which the students were ma
Successful business men are usually found to be entirely will
ing to advise students in their vocational problems. The pro
gram could be so arranged that short personal interviews might
bo granted to interested students, and it is entirely likely that
many men would, in this manner, find work in the field in which
they are most interested and to which they are best adapted.
High-Pressured Scholarship
rJ''llOSE who complain that in the modern American university
athletics and the social life are over-emphasized at the ex
pense of scholarship may find some atonement in our institu
tion in the amount of publicity that is given to the students
who make exceptional scholarship records, or rather grade-point
Something of a Pythagorean mysticism of mathematics
seems to hang around the figure 80, and prompts the prepara
tion and prominent publication of names of all students who
make more than four-score grade-points. Perhaps the choice of 1
this number lies in the fact that 80 is the maximum number of
grade-points which may be made by a student carrying the nor
mal and faculty-advised study schedule of 16 hours, and the
restriction of an honors list to those with more than 80 points 1
automatically bars the normal student.
We do not wish to detract from the value and the pride of
exceptional grades, but we regret that there is no more accurate
measure of the educational value derived from a college term
than an arbitrary apd artificial system of mathematical classifi
cation which separates the blessed from the damned. Making
so much of students who draw down straight I's implies that
their methods an those which should be emulated by all stu
dents. a possibility that exists only in theory and possesses
doubtful value.

Being a fable of the man who
got his picture in the Emerald.
Once upon a time there was a
freshman. He lived in a big frat
house with shower baths and a pet
canary. He had a car, a canoe, a
portable phonograph, a new suit
and a clean shirt. He was bright
and made 28 points every term.
He was free from Halitosis, B. O.,
athlete’s foot and gym itch. He
had shook hands with Johnny
Kitzmiller, Arnold Bennett Hall,
President Hoover, A1 Capone, S.
Stephenson Smith, and Johnny
Kendall. He had a personally au
tographed picture of Clara Bow on
his dresser and another one of
Bull Montana. He had curly ljair,
could sing tenor, and had won
three waltzing contests. He haji
once been mentioned in the parlor
propaganda over the Emerald
KORE hour. He had been blithe
and happy until this last event.
When his name had come over the
ether he heard several people re
mark, ’ Who is that? Never heard
of him. Can't be anyone of im
From that moment on his life
was blighted. Who was he ? he
thought to himself. No one, abso

lutely no one. He slunk home and
drowned his troubles in lavoris.
On the campus he was a changed
man. Why couldn’t he speak to
all the prominent people like the
rest of the students? He slunk
about the campus, with head hung
in shame. When anyone spoke to
him all he could do was mumble.
The student body president passed
him up without even looking at
him. And beautiful Nellie Mc
Dougall never even gave him a
glance. He was simply a non
One morning he awoke to find j
that a fraternity brother had i
taken pity on him and had ap- [
pointed him chairman of an im
portant class function. His pic
ture appeared in the paper. He
stared at it with unbelieving eyes.
He, a campus celebrity. With
eager eyes he glanced at the ac
companying article: Jones says ‘
that this will be the most success
ful function of its kind in the his
tory of the University. . . . Jones
promises . . . Speaking of Jones’
appointment, Smith says . . . That
he feels positive that Jones is the
very man for the job . . . one of
the most active members of his
class ... a member of the bon
fire workers . . . greater Oregon
committee ... did a brilliant piece
of work as a member of Glee
cleanup committee . . . confident
of success of the function.
He jumped up from the break- ,
fast table and ran upstairs to
look at himself in the mirror. Now
that he was a man among men,
he must look the part. He must
be dignifiedly pleasant but must
master that “most likely to sue- ]
ceed" expression, the harried im- '
portant expression which he had 1
observed so many times with envy ]
on the faces of the big men about
the campus. In short, he must 1
look the part of a man of affairs, <
and must learn that curt nod 1
which invariably accompanied *
their "Hello, Joe!’’ or “How are '■
ya, Mike?” He practiced these 1
expressions until he had them j«
down pat. Then he practiced his 1
masterful stride. Finally, with I
beating heart and with expanded j
chest, he walked down the cam- I
pus. He , could imagine people j 1
looking at him, pointing him out i
as “A1 Jones, the chairman of so i
and so.” He spoke to everyone 1
he met and received the few con- i
gratulations with becoming mod- c
csty and with that certain effi
cient air. Suddenly he saw the
student body president coming
down the street toward him. His
pulse quickened, now or never.
“How are ya, George?” he
barked. Everything went perfect,
his curt nod, his glance of cool
appraisal, just the proper inflec
tion. He received a puzzled nod.
Confidence raced through h i s
veins. Then he saw Nellie.
“Hello, Nellie!” and received a
demure, half-wondering response.
Yen, college was sure the dope.
He stopped to have a cigarette at
the law school curb, with a frat
brother. He put in his two bits’
worth in the conversation. As he
left the group he stopped to tie a
“Who's that guy?” he heard one
of the persons he had just talked
to inquire in a puzzled voice.
“Search me,” said another voice,
“I never saw him before.”
Ice froze in his veins and he
slunk homewards, by a back route.
He didn’t feel like going to his
classes. He once more drowned
his troubles in lavoris. What the
hell was the use ?
