Our Signature Song
FEW periods in life are concluded with the satisfaction of
knowing that each original aim has been successfully ac
complished. Doubtless a few plans for the future will fade into
oblivion and turn out to be hollow idealisms, but without new
thoughts and unconventional ideas little progress could be antici
This issue turns the second leaf of the three-page book of the
1930-31 Emerald administration. It concludes winter term pub
lication. Each incoming editor surveys the field, glances about
for opportunities to do his bit in bettering conditions around him,
and lays the necessary foundation for accomplishing the ends
called for in his plans. During the period of foundation-laying
many of his blue-prints lose their poignancy- new facts are re
vealed, and they become invalid. These he discards and immedi
ately begins search anew.
Why not allow things to run along as they are ? This ques
tion is sometimes asked of him. Or, why be like the syndicalist,
always seeking out the wrong? Because, he answers, it is the
urge, inherent to those of the newspaper profession, to be among
the makers of the world, and claim a share of the responsibility
for social and political alterations. He feels it his duty to be a
leader in the endless race for supremacy, whether it be among
institutions, states or nations. He cares little to mould the
thoughts of his fellow men his duty is to provide solid ideas
upon which they may ponder.
The Emerald has completed two terms of foundation-laying.
During these few months it has not been dormant. Though there
is always the likelihood of misinterpretation or the possibility
of persons taking exception to subjects with which it has dealt,
we feel that much solid advice has been presented through this
editorial column. We are satisfied, not necessarily with the
tangible accomplishments, but with a most apreciable general
In such a message as this we cannot neglect the oft-told
story. The Emerald’s sincere cooperation is with the members
of the associated students. It is owned by the students and
maintains the sincere determination to support action taken by
official bodies of he students and the University in so far as it
is believed fair, worthy, and justifiable. The Emerald feels free
to announce its conscientious opinions and plans which are be
lieved to be for the betterment of the institution as a whole.
With this in mind a special editorial column will be run next
term under a heading which definitely points out the aim of
suggestions made. Here will appear pointed editorials meant for
the best interests of the school. They will be built on the foun
dation constructed during the past two terms and convey the
Emerald’s sincere suggestions for progressive steps.
Examinations an Example
FINAL examinations follow this last issue of the Emerald for
short winter term. There will be one week of examinations,
one week of vacation, and one day of registration. Those two
weeks and a day offer ample proof of a contention before stated
ill these columns. Registrations, examinations, and vacations
take up too much time of the college year.
Each has a function in the University. The Emerald is no
advocate of a plan for abolishing examinations or vacations; it
does believe, however, that the matter is overdone. No golf
professional, to borrow an example from the President’s Pen,
leaves so little time for practice of the game as the University
leaves the student for study and lectures. No golf professional
so frequently takes the club out of his pupil's hands and asks
him to drive a ball without that club. The golf professional's
first aim is to teach.
If the University is waiting for a more serious community
oil' students who will study instead of "bone" during repeated
"final" examinations, it is waiting in vain. “Quizzes” may in
stinct; "finals” do not. And while the University waits it may
well be classed as a retailor of education, as interested in the
wrappings and gilt string of education as in the core of learning.

Above we see Fletcher Udall,
who, in addition to being the pro
fessional college comic, sings ten
or and speaks Japanese pidgin.
He says that he developed this lin
go when some helpful soul told
him that the Japanese pidgeon
was the ideal mailman. Mr. Udall
can usually be seen with his feet
in hot water and a mustard plas
ter on his chest jollying the nurses
down around the infirmary. “An
ideal place,” he says, “to escape
bill collectors.” Fletch is here
snapped by our column photog
rapher in characteristic pose. “Who
was that lady I saw you with here
in Eugene last night?” one of the
Chi Psis has just asked him.

Students Travel Far
In “grandfather’s day” when a
student was compelled to travel I
three or four miles each morning
to reach school, it was believed
(that he faced a considerable handi
cap. Nowadays students travel 20
I or 30 miles or further each morn
ing to be present for 8 o'clock
classes at the University of Cali
i fornia at Los Angeles, and think
little of it.
