Silence on Corruption
TXTHILE the executive council sits at times, the campus elec
’ ’ tions are drawing nearer. Upon the executive council and
especially upon the vice-president of the student body rests the
responsibility of insuring that the voting at those elections shall
be fair and that there shall be no votes cast twice by the same
In the past the precautions have been useless. Last year it
was admitted that a number of illegal votes got by the board
appointed to prevent such ballots. The system was proved
faulty -enough questioned ballots were counted to have changed
two of the majorities.
If the present vice-president and the executive council are
to change to a better system, they should act immediately. The
Emerald has for more than a year advocated a simple system
of allowing one vote for each student body ticket. No action
was taken last year, with the result that the election was cast
No getion has been taken this year. If, for instance, the
ticket plan is adopted by a laggard council, it would be most
unwise and unfair to delay announcement until a few days be
fore election. 1% should be announced long before the balloting
that each ticket means a vote.
No credit can be given student officers if they delay until
the last to remedy an outworn system. No credit certainly can
' be given if they fail to remedy it at all.
Cell Doors and a Plan
' T>RISON cell doors should not be manufactured by convicts at
Salem because private, industry needs the work. That state
ment was made recently when a new type of cell door was
found necessary, and the same plea for private industry has
been made in the past. Labor has always been afraid of the
competition of prison-made goods.
Yet if all production eventually rests on labor of some kind,
jt would seem that laborers are willing to support prisoners
While free men work, in preference to letting convicts help sup
port the free men. Laborers prefer to turn part of their income
over to the state for the upkeep of prisons rather than have
part of prison income revert to them.
Labor has had a good reason to fear prison competition.
It is true that the standard of living must be lowered for the
free men; but it is true only because of the present system of
directing the profits of prison manufacture back to the state
’ instead of to the men who are most injured by it.
Profit in prison manufacturing of goods must mean the sur
- plus above cost of tools and raw material. The labor is no |
cost, for under any other plan the convict would not work. To
* use forced labor, then, is to use labor which costs nothing except
to the free man who can find no work.
The problem then arises of repaying the free laborers. Ore
gon has an excellent means of doing that very thing. The in
dustrial accident fund might well be ti e recipient of prison labor
profits- the money going to laborers. Or unemployment funds
could be in part supported by prison profits. Here the very
man thrown out of work would in fact be receiving the wages
pf the convict. He would be supported by prison labor instead
pf supporting the prisoner.
■ If labor insists on setting aside another class to live at its
expense, if it insists on manufacturing cell doors, then labor Is
saddling Itself with another burden. It ought to direct its atten- |
tion, instead, to securing for itself the profit from having more
men at work. I
It is becoming increasingly clear to students that the-man
nobody-sees is doing more to clarify the educational tangle than
almost any other man. President Hall is bringing a new kind
of Oregon spirit to the campus; not only for the University of
Oregon, but for the state of Oregon.
The University of Washington has been charged by Mrs. AT.
E. Davis, regent of the D. A. It., as ‘‘outstanding among colleges
for ils tendency toward communism." We can t find Oregon in
The Daily Iowan comments on the difference in reaction of a
student when a professor "bawls him out" and when a football
coach does the same thing. There’s plenty of room for com
At Minnesota, because students complained of faults in the
curricula, a special meeting was called by a faculty member to
hear suggestion'. Only thirty-one students showed up for the
meeting. Perhaps the same uy of "Wolf" has been heard too
often on the Oregon campus.

We feel that, with the approach

young members of the male sex
will be quite overcome by the se

aid these bewildered college lad
dies we now feel duty bound to
come forward at this time and of

rules. We advise all young men to
write these rules on their shirt

WHAT EVERY COLLEGE MAN
1. WHEN A YOUNG LADY
CALLS YOU UP AND ASKS FOR
A DATE STALL HER OFF. TELL
HER THAT YOU AREN'T SURE
WHETHER YOU CAN GO OR
NOT, AND FOR HER TO CALL
UP LATER. THIS MAKES HER
FEEL THAT YOU ARE DOING
HER A FAVOR. ACCEPT AFTER
THE SECOND OR THIRD INVI
2. When she culls for you in the
evening bent, it upstairs as soon as
she enters the drawing room. Dress
and undress yourself three or four
times, and then come rushing down
the stairs (dressed, of course) and
inform the young lady that you
didn't know she had arrived.
3. If she tries to put her arm
around you and kiss you in the
taxi (tush! tush! We're speaking
of tire vehicle), push her away
from you, and huddle into the cor
ner of the cab. Assume a Billy
Sunday injured tone, and repeat
the following' nursery tale, "I hope
you don't think I'm like the aver
age college man. 1 have principles.
I don't let every girl 1 go out with
kiss me." This will put her in her
place. Of course, you must imme
diately weaken, and as the taxi
swerves around a corner, lose con
trol of your equilibrium and your

4. WHETHER YOU GO TO A
DANCE OR TO A SHOW KEEP
CONSTA NTLY REMARKING
ABOUT HOW MANY EEAUTI
FUL GIRLS THERE ARE AT
THE AFFAIR. THIS WILL
AROUSE YOUR PARTNER’S
JEALOUSY, WHICH IS ALWAYS
A GOOD SIGN.
5. On the way home tell her
about all the girls you have ever
j gone out with, which will assure
| her that you HAVE a past.
6. Be sure to tell her of how
many dates you turned down to go
to the shin-dig with her. (The cor
rect method of doing this is as fol
lows: take original number, 0, add
to it 3, multiply by 5, and divide by
3. This, if arithmetic is still the
same as it used to be when we
went to grammar school, will leave
you 5. Well, that's how many
dates you turned down.)
7. When she kisses you good
night be sure to inform her that
you’ve had a perfectly lovely time.
Don’t forget to use the word “love

Aviation Class Hears
Talk by Meteorologist
Mr. E. L. Wells, government me
teorologist of Portland, addressed
the commercial aviation class yes
terday at 11 o’clock on weather
forecasting as a profession and
meteorological aids to flying.
The complete organization of the
government weather bureau was
discussed by Mr. Wells. He also
told the class how the weather bur
eau aided fliers by determining
the weather in advance so that
they are able to tell the type of
weather they will encounter on
Detailed description of the oper
ation of the radio telephone was
given by the meteorologist in his
talk. Radio telephone is the means
by which an airplane pilot is in
continual communication with the
nearest weather bureau headquar
ters or landing field. Airmail pi
lots especially, rely upon this
means of communication to keep
posted on existing weather condi
According to Mr. Wells, most of
the important commercial avia
tion companies are at present mak
ing a special effort to train pilots
in the elements of meteorology so
that when it becomes necessary
for them to depend upon them
selves in determining the weather,
they will have some technical
knowledge of it.

Slated for Week
Show To Take Heilig Stage
Friday, May 1; Plans
Shaping Up Well
Dates for five rehearsals of the
Junior Vodvil to take place be
tween now and Friday, May 1,
when the event will be presented
to the public on the stage of the
Heilig theater, were released by
the show directors last night.
The schedule as outlined is for
complete rehearsals only, and will
not affect the practices of the sep
arate acts which will proceed as
the individual directors of those
Rehearsals will be as follow:
At Cocoanut Grove, Saturday
(April 25) morning at 8 o’clock.
At the Heilig theater, Sunday
morning at 8 o’clock.
At Cocoanut Grove, Tuesday
evening at 7 o’clock.
At the Heilig theater, Wednes
day night at 11 o’clock. (Dress
At Cocoanut Grove, Thursday
afternoon at 2 o’clock.
The first performance will go
on the stage at 8 o’clock Friday
Last Sunday afternoon the first
complete rehearsal of the vodvil
was held in Cocoanut Grove before
a small group of student and fac
ulty advisers. At this rehearsal
the possibilities of the show were
clearly demonstrated, but the fact
that a lot of good hard practice
and expert directing are necessary
was also in evidence.
Individual acts have been prac
ticing each evening under the su
pervision of a student director and
a faculty adviser. As a result, a
much superior showing of each
part of the program is promised
by those in charge, for the com
plete rehearsal Saturday morning.
