To Oregon Mothers
rinHE aim of every Oregon mother is to have her son or daugh
■*" ter grow to be among the finest, highest-minded, and best
respected people of the world. They hope for utmost success
of their children. Mothers spend sleepless nights hoping above
all that they, sons and daughters so imbded with the family
blood and recognized as bearers of the family names, may live
to be morally sound and spiritually enriched. Ybung people of
today CAN be as mothers wish, but a complete and unlimited
understanding between mother and son or daughter is the great
At one time every mother was a daughter. She should know
what the son or daughter needs most to hold them to the ways
of life which are morally right. In many cases mothers DO
know, but in many others the environment in which their chil
,-dren find themselves has so changed that the value of their
mothers’ practical experience has been lost. Often mothers are
extremely maladjusted to the situations in which “they find their
In fact, most mothers fall in this category—maladjusted. We,
as children of Oregon mothers, know that trust infour judgment
is supreme in our attempt to become the best and make our*
lives worth-while. We must have ovr mothers to confide in and 1
we must have their assurance that they believe in us. Mothers
must trust us from childhood until death. There is nothing more
that a son or daughter could wish than to know that a mother
will be on his or her side throughout thick and thin.
Now that we have reached an age where we must leave home
and exercise our judgment to capacity, mothers have just one
more thing to do. They must forget that we are still infants,
ready to come toddling and climb upon aproned knees. We, as
students of the University of Oregon, expect to be treated as
men and women of the world expect to be thrust upon our own
responsibilities and backed by our mothers’ trust.
Nothing can shackle a child’s love for his mother nor a
mother’s love for her child.
Take care that your love for your son or daughter does not
blind you to his or her common sense and break that TRUST
which is valued so highly. This is our message to all Oregon
IOT1NG in Madrid yesterday, in which churches were burned
and other damage done, may mark the beginning of a
period which may make the recent Spanish revolution not so
bloodless after all. After King Alfonso’s abdication in favor of
the republicans, hope was expressed all over the world that the
new government might be able to control the various factions in
But revolution, bloodless or bloody, always seems to offer
opportunity to those with grievances. Every party, every fac
tion, and every religious sect looks toward change of govern
ment as leading to immediate adoption of their own cause.
That martial government has been deemed necessary to sup
press the riots will be a hard grain to take for those whose
hope amt whose fight has been for liberalism. Some groups
may be definitely alienated, and especially in those sections al
ready prepared to set up republics of their own. Madrid dis
patches may be concerned with rioting, therefore, for some
months to come.
In our own country, even with peaceful changes in personnel,
the government is expected immediately to satisfy all the pre
vious “outs." It is human nature to expect definite progress
with every election. Our fault, too, is expecting that progress
to fit always our own desires.
Women students work for grades more often than do men.
Such is one of the conclusions Dr. Frederick H. Lund, former
head of the department of psychology of Bucknell college,
reached after a study of students. We might add that men spend
most of their time working for women.
A dance held at Butler university, Indiana, was quite novel
in the manner of its subscription. Each young lady was weighed
at the entrance ami her escort paid accordingly per pound. Don't
they ever give the heavyweights a break?
We’ve heard ot extreme cases of trying to kid a traffic offi
cer, but the worst of all v\as the other day back in Albany, New
York, when a gypsy father offered his baby sou in payment of
a traffic violation, saying, "Keep the kid."

* Among our fan mail for the *

* siles to the effect that if we *

And what’s this we hear about
the agitation up around the Fiji
dive to move the Phi Gam sleeping
quarters out to some meadows for
the rest of the spring, on the plea
that the sleeping porch is just
simply too far from the favorite
study quarters, the way it is now

And while we’re in the dirt

like to know the cause of the poi

around the Phi Sig domicile.

Vint Hall, when approached up
on the subject, admitted that so
far he had escaped unscathed, but
whispered confidentially that the
house council was taking drastic
measures and that it would be hut
a matter of hours before they
started knocking holes in the bot

And now that this mud-slinging
frenzy is upon us, we'll finish it up I

TODAY’S BEDTIME STORY
“Tweet., tweet,” said little Wini
fred Wren as she chewed on her
favorite brand of brickdust. “Ha
Ha,” said little Amy Armadillo,
because she knew it wasn’t brick
dust at all, but just some sand
paper that Jehosaphett Jay left
around the last time that he clean
ed his teeth. A very careless per
son, Jehosaphett. And then who
should walk up but little Oscar
Owl, carrying a bag of peanuts,
• two cakes of Fleischmann’s yeast,
and three cans of stove polish. He
| immediately began hurling the pea
nuts at little Winifred. And Now—
to be continued in our next issue.
The great mystery what did he
do with the Fleischmann’s yeast
and stove polish, don't miss it.
