Strengthening Student Relations ,
\ DEFINITE step toward more efficient student government.
was taken recently when student officials organized plans
for a committee of 15 senior men who will speak before members
of campus living organizations on occasions when questions of
import arise. Members of this committee will be chosen by the
executive council through the student relations committee.
Glancing back over the pages of associated student history,
we note an incident here and there where action taken by the
executive council has not met with the approval of a majority
of students on the campus. Students have condemned the coun
cil for its actions because they appeared on the surface unwar
ranted. In many cases, had they known what we might call
the "inside dope,” their attitudes would have been altered. Here
lies a duty of the speakers committee that we wish to place at
the head of the list. These men may act as diplomats from the
governing body of the associated students and by careful prep
aration of speeches inform nearly every student on matters of
student control.
In past years the Emerald has partially filled this gap. The
Emerald, however, is not the official spokesman of the executive
council and has never considered it its duty to act as such since
it is quite clearly a separate institution.
Aside from this advantage of the speakers committee, an
other may be found in the dispensation of all petty speakers
and solicitors for unimportant affairs. No “doubt this change
will be welcomed by members of living organizations, who grunt
and groan each time some co-ed, dainty or otherwise,'screeches
out a plea for ticket sales or the like.
Previous to this latest action, to the secretary was delegated
responsibility for providing closer contact between University of
ficials and students. Through maintenance of an official "date
book,” both for faculty and administration men and also for
noted campus visitors, the secretary's office will be able to insure
that students may utilize to the fullest advantage informal con
tact with local and national figures. As “campus hostess,” the
secretary will be in charge of directing and placing house and
society invitations with visiting celebrities.
Because its work is with usually unnoticed weaknesses of
past procedure, the president and the council deserve no less
praise for their efforts. Their program merits success, and of
the sort for which the University of Oregon has definite need.
Memorials to Hatred
TlyrKMOKIALS dedicated in spirit if not in name to tlie greed,
the blind patriotism, and to the narrow hatred of war , . .
Two such memorials may be dedicated in just such a spirit
at Harvard and Cornell if student opinion does not prevail over
the short-sighted nationalism of university authorities. As at
Harvard, where agitation was raised when the names of three
German students who died in the World war were omitted from
v • * . g .
the memorial chapel, so at Cornell the name of Huns Wagner,
German, may be left from the roll.
.* ° 0 S',’
“lluns Wagner," says the Cornell Sun, "was enrolled at Cor
/=? s’ \ • o. v C * -«$
licit in 1908-1909. He returned to Germany and died fighting
o 0 )V » •% e ^ - \ o
for his fatherland in the World war. Yet his name is missing
in the war memorial cloister which bears these words at its
entrance: ‘On these walls are inscribed ttie names of those sons
of Cornell who gave their lives in the W'orld war.’ ”
On May 23, President Hoover will speak in the dedicatory
exercises, and may honor not the death of those who fought
With highest motives, but may honor those whose hatred of the
enemy lias lasted these more than a dozen years.
If the name of Hans Wagner, fallen comrade in a war that
should never have been, finds no high place in Cornell's memo
rial chapel, that is an admission that passion still rules in tips
country. Internationalism will have received a significant blow.
H is not ttie veterans of the war who oppose inclusion of
Wagner’s name. On the contrary, the Newark American Legion
post termed Harvard’s action in barring from its memorial
chapel three names for like reasons, an “unnecessary waving of
the bloody shirt.”
Back of this instance of narrowest nationalism is something
of vastly more import. That university leaders in our greatest
universities should lag so far behind student opinion in such a
matter is a definite stain on educational banners.

technique required. His strength
and great energy carried off this
most intricate and complicated
number. It was more than a sat
isfactory display of the hard work
Ayres has done in preparing last
night's program.
Doris Helen Patterson played a
capable organ accompaniment to
Beethoven's “Emperor” concerto.
The allegro is in flourishing', mar
tial style, and abounds in thrilling
effects, none of which were neg
lected. He built trills, runs,
chords, staccato melodies, cross
rhythms, syncopated beats, and
legato passages into a majestic
whole that was noble in its pro
port ions.
The adagio was restful after the
glittering brilliance of the allegro.
Miss Patterson cooperated splen
didly. and the pipe combinations,
suited to the spirit of the allegro
and rondo, were pleasing. The en
tire concerto is built of nicely fin
ished musical phrases, to which
Ayres added a rest that delighted
his listeners.
The program, in review, was ;
long and difficult, worthy of the 1
finest efforts of one of the finest
student pianists on the campus. It
was played with a finish and
precision complimentary to lus
teacher and coach.

barn dance that the order of the

there is any co-ed who attends this

public eye enough when she de

we have to say is that she’s the

Today’s choicest morsel con
cerns one Robert (Hack) Miller,
the blonde brute of the Phi Psi
tong. It seems that Hack became
a bit infatuated while on his trip
to Medford spring vacation, and,
being unable to stand the pro- |
longed separation, did the gallant
thing and phoned to the pear city
long distance. It seems that the
other party had a few things to
say herself, and, at the end of half
an hour, Hack found himself the
recipient of a phone bill amounting
to $7.50. Hack claims ‘that while
it may not be safe for a man to
write, its a dang sight cheaper.’

When we knew him, Joseph
Bumglim was a flat failure. When
he was five years old, a great
Psycho-analyist cited him as hav
ing a pornographic mind. When
he started to school he used to
pour carbolic acid down the neck
of the girl who sat in front of
him. When he was ten he was
expelled for writing all the school
scandal on the sidewalks with
crayons. When he was thirteen
he ran away from school and be
came a bellhop. He was fired two
days later for peeking through
keyholes. At tire age of fourteen 1
he was sent to the reform school
because of his second story activi
ties. The warden kicked him out
when he discovered that the war
den’s family had been horsethieves
and that the warden’s wife had
false teeth, a wig, and a wooden
leg. At the age of eighteen he was
sent to jail because of his activi
ties as a peeping Tom. He escaped
and was sent right back again for
stealing the clothes off babies
when the mothers left them alone
in their go-carts in the middle of
winter. He was branded as the
snoopiest and meanest man alive.
He dropped out of sight and
everyone predicted that he would
end on the gallows or in the elec
tric chair. And then one day he
returned to his home town in a
Ralls-Royce, with a colored chauf
fer and dressed in the height of
fashion, spats, monacle, pomera
nian, and all. Nobody could figure
it out. Everyone was flabber
gasted. And then the truth be
came known. He had become a

Let’s Have Opinions
To the Editor:
Inasmuch as there are two or
:hree important stages of educa
tional evolution passing on the
Dregon campus, it has occurred to
ne that a little student self-ex
Dtession might aid those that guide
:he Oregon educational system to
more definitely act in the best way
:o create education as it should be.
During the winter term a group
>f sophomores strenuously object
id to certain methods and means of
providing a sophomore requisite
course. All winter long there have
been mumblings among freshmen
igainst the methods of teaching
background courses, such as:
aackground of social science; lit
erature survey; English lit., etc
rhe Emerald has damned the three
:erm school year (even called it a
3-term one).
Student grade systems have been
larrangued. Exams have been
condemned. In general, there
seems to be much valuable com
ment on the Oregon educational
system being dissipated by such
cents as dancing, swimming, and
Irinking. None of this (propor
ionately none) valuable informa
;ion is being made available to
egislators, tax-payers, instructors,
eaders, and students.
Now that there are only a few
weeks until another “batch” of
‘grads” is “ground out,” let us
'ind, from student sources, where
■fficiency can be increased here,
vhere economy can be used there,
low lessons can be made to mean
more to us—you, what goes
igainst our—your grain, which
nethods employed are disliked, and
vhat methods need your sanction,
io that the planners of our “fate”
will have more to guide them in
lext year's program.
Do you get the point?

Today’s Query: Should We
Have Spring Formals?
“I thing the spring dances should
be informal because the weather is
much to hot to wear tuxes.”—Kim
ball Page, freshman in business ad
» * *
“X think they should be formal
because it is the one dance of the
year that is formal. The other
dances are usually informal.”—•
Laura Drury, freshman in English.
“I think they should be informal
because it is too warm in the
spring to get into a tux and dance
all evening.”—Pete Hamilton, jun
ior in art;
“I think informals are best for
spring term because it is too warm
for men to bother about tuxes.”—
Julianne Benton, junior in English.
Enrollment Increases
For Graduate School
Enrollment for the graduate
school increases every spring term
over winter term because seniors
within six hours of graduation
may register in the graduate
school and have part of their work
count toward graduate credit.
This spring term holds true to
tradition, with a large enrollment
of 212; 135 men and 77 women.
The education department leads
with 20 men and 6 women; Eng
lish is next with 8 men and 15
women; history ranks third with
9 men and 7 women; business ad
ministration, biology, and chemis
try tie for fourth place with to
tals of 15 students apiece.
