Right Idea, Prexy
\ S a result of Thursday’s election, there is a man at the head
of the student government for the ensuing year who has
definitely declared himself on a question that has been the sub
ject for some controversy and the cause of no little ill feeling
between student leaders for the past years the question of the
relationship of the executive council to the Emerald.
Previous to the election, the Emerald asked the two presi
dential candidates the following question: What should be the
relation of the executive council towards the Emerald? Em
ployer, advisor, censor, owner, or distinct from it? In answer,
the successful candidate expressed the opinion that the Emerald
"should be distinct and independent” from the executive council.
Some student presidents in the past have even gone so far
as to contend that the Emerald as a student newspaper should
uphold all decisions of the student committees, for these com
mittees are composed of students duly chosen by popular elec
tion and representative of student opinion. These men held that
by criticizing the administration the Emerald was failing to give
the proper co-operation.
The contention of the Emerald has been that intelligent crit
icism of the student leaders will lead to sounder student admin
istration. It has believed that failure to criticize what it con
siders unwarranted actions of the council or the president is
not only poor journalism but a betrayal of the best interests of
Next year the editor of the Emerald can begin his work with
a feeling of freedom unknown to the men preceding him at the
helm of the student newspaper. Unhampered by the fear of
interference from the A. S. U. O. president, he may work intelli
gently for the advancement of student interests. With discre
tion he may criticize with enthusiasm he may praise—the offi
cial acts of the student heads.
The Emerald has never felt that it should be subordinate to,
or in any way influenced by, the executive council. It wishes to
express appreciation to the newly chosen president for his stand
on the matter. It is a stand that reflects a deep understanding
of the situation that merits our praise and the praise of future
College Forum - A Relief
\ FEW energetic young journalists at Stanford university
v joined hands t lie other day to publish a magazine which
would have been called the “Stanford Forum," had not the presi
dent of the university set ids jaw, slammed down his fist, and
snapped out his decision "No!'' Just how such a good live
wire magazine as those boys are publishing could besmirk that
precious Stanford name, we do not know.
Well: anyway, the book was issued under the name of “Col
•./> • ' • v <s: • * • ; .
lege Forum.” And it is a dandy sparkling, light, and extremely
readable. 11 is?a credit to tjie colleges of the Pacific coast, and
let us thunk the Stanford university president for lending his
influence in making it a general magazine rather than restrict
ing it to a single campus or stunting its popularity by becoming
a university organ of propaganda.
Editor Gunnar Norberg has the right idea. His aim in pub
lishing the magazine is to give student writers, who are edged
out in the competitive fields of established periodicals, a chance
to present their wares. College Forum "makes it definitely its
policy to have as contributors entirely, so far as possible col
lege students.” As evidenced by his first issue, he aims to have
the publication sell for it is flashy, attractive, anti neat even
though the stories included may not be wholly sound.
It is exceedingly refreshing to see a few young writers come
right out with the dope on subjects Uiey believe they know more
about than do a gang of breybeards who make their approaches
quietly yet philosophically sound. It takes students to tell
whether or not college educates. Well. Davie G. Lyon, of tire
University of'California, writes a “criticism of criticism” in his
story on "Does College Educate?" And Sum (Somebody) says,
"To Hell with Examination! Let’s Learn Something.”
Each of these boys has hit upon a good subject for any dis
cussion. They’ve started something and they’re starting it right,
and our wish is that it will continue. A story written by a
member of the Oregon Daily Emerald staff is to appear in an
issue of the College Forum in the near future.
It was certainly splendid of so many students to exorcise
tlieir individuality and split their tickets at Thursday’s election.
“There' always a first time.” said the Order ul the O men
as they : the head of one student after another in the
cam pun fountain. Yea, and occasionally there is a second.

some person whose parents aren’t

by taxing the fraternity brothers

precisely what the motif for the

And also today, come to think
about it, is the historic day on
which the frosh are to burn their
green lids. The frosh haven’t any
thing to cry about. All they have
to worry about or do, is to burn
their caps. All the rest of the

doubtless be attended to by the
sophs and order of the “O.”
At last we believe we've found
the prize glutton for punishment.
What’s this we hear about a cer

ping from him, being tossed in
again for the same offense ?

Double Play Features
The Webfoots tried hard in the
seventh, succeeding in chasing
Putnam to the showers, but their
spurt fell one short of tying the
score. Stevens, Mimnaugh and
Barnes banged out singles before
a man was retired, the Duck short
stop scoring. Vern Arnett then
poked the ball squarely into the
hands of Nelson, Husky keystone
guardian, who pegged to Heaman,
who relayed to Sullivan at first
for a double killing.
Londahl and Shaneman started
the hitting all over again with two
more singles, putting Mimnaugh
across. Coach Tub Graves yanked
Putnam and sent in Arthur, who
checked the rally without wasting
any time. The lean Mr. Arthur
subdued the Ducks thereafter.

series will start at 2:30 this after

of law, refused to let such a little
thing as a car wreck deter him in
the least from his purpose, accord

Professor Howard, in company
with two law students, Howard
Greene and C. S. Shimanek, were
bound for Indian creek on the Ma

Professor Howard's car, in which
they were riding, skidded off the
highway, dropped over a 15-foot
embankment, and came to rest in
the creek bed below, after rolling
about 35 feet. As neither of the
three men were injured they
crawled out of the car windows
and hitch-hiked to Rain Rock, the
nearest town, secured help in get

you’ll find me swapping stories at the club
It’s no easy matter to pilot a bucking log through white-tipped rapids.
It’s even harder to pry a Chesterfield smoker loose from his choice. A man
wants taste in his cigarette and in Chesterfield he gets it...The better taste of
milder and better tobaccos—nothing else! Nothing else is needed...thanks to the
"cross-blend,” which brings out the aroma and flavor of the tobaccos themselves!
For NINETEEN years, our Research Department has kept
intimate touch with every new development of Science that
could be applied to t he manufacture of cigarettes. During: this
period there has been no development of tested value or im
portance to the smoker which we have not incorporated into
the making of Chester held cigarettes.
