A College Cheer for Capone
"^y^HEN “Scarface Al” Capone and several of his select
henchmen attended a football game in Chicago Satur
day, they were vociferously greeted by the assembled forty
thousand spectators. But the cheers were “Bronx cheers,” and
the chorus of jeers and boos persisted so long that the notori
ous gangster and his associates were forced to leave the stands
before the game was over.
The incident marked the first public demonstration of its
kind toward Capone since he came before the public eye sev
eral years ago because of his racketeering activities. Chicago
authorities point out that it indicates how completely the false
atmosphere of romance and heroism surrounding the man has
been blasted since the federal government began its prosecu
However that may be, Capone, at least, has some definite
understanding of how he stands in the hearts of his country
men. It took a college crowd to shame the man to put him
in his place. For the first time he received the kind of a wel
come he so richly deserves. The law may mete out punish
ment to the gangster after ;i iong trial, but no punishment
administered by the law can be so severe as that he received
when he faced the boos and jeers of forty thousand college
rooters. If future public receptions of gangsters and their
kind are as cordial, the real reform in our government will have
Student and $1.28
/ANE of the more serious-minded students of fair Oregon just
dropped into the editorial den to discourse on the hard lot
of the would-be pursuer after knowledge.
"You know,” he said, "it’s a heckuva life.”
"Yes, we do know," we replied. Editorial writers are well
equipped to know that.
"Here I am will) a grand total,of one dollar and 28 cents,”
he continued, pulling the above-named sum out of a pocket.
“I need some razor blades, a lab manual, three gallons of gas,
and some tennis shoes.”
After considerable time spent in what seemed to be deep
meditation he said thoughtfully, “I don’t have to have the ten
nis shoes before Wednesday, so maybe I can stave them off a
while. The lab manual I don't need until Saturday, and by
that time I ought to have a little more dough. But I've just
got to have those razor blades right now. I think I’ll get Gil
lette’s,” he added confidingly. "You can use both edges of
them, you know. Of course you can scoot the other kind around
the inside of a water glass and sharpen them that way, but
I think I'll get Gillette’s this time.".
For a while he was silent as he regarded with apparent
satisfaction the result of his frantic planning.
"But then, I've got to have three gallons of gas. Cars don't
run on nothing, not even in times of depression of the deepest
dye. Let's see, razor blades and gas . . . Nope, I can’t make
it. Guess I’ll get the gas. One of the brothers will loan me
a razor blade until I hear from home.”
Having made this decision, he went out airily with a gleam
of satisfaction on his face which would have betokened the
happy untying of a Gordian knot of statecraft had it been on
the face of one of our leading statesmen.
Open House in the Balance
QPEN HOUSE hangs in the balance today.
Meeting around a conference table this afternoon, a
committee of seven students will hold the scales of campus
opinion and decide whether one of Oregon’s oldest traditions
will survive or perish, or whether it will undergo serious
We hope the student counterparts of the figure of justice
will not be blind, will not take hasty action in a matter that
affects so closely all the students in the University. If the
present plan of Open House is weighed in the balances and
found wanting, let the following alternative plans be consid
I. Hold Oner House on two successive nights from 7 to

But we feel that the ideal plan is the one as it now exists.
Open House is the foundation of Oregon's friendly campus feel
ing and the “hello” spirit. It should be saved.
Asked as to whether they would permit their escorts to
drink, a group of co-eds at Ohio State university responded
that it was all light just as long as the escorts could keep
on the sidewalk, and not forget to take them home after the
party. Which confirms a sneaking suspicion that alter all.
