'Investigator No. 2
TT’S a bad year for “investigators.” Two weeks ago campus
"*■ sentiment flared up when Jonathan A. Butler, commissioner
for the Pacific Coast conference, let it be known he had infor
mation cpjestioning the eligibility of Joe Lillard for intercolle
Now comes another "investigator” with a disturbing report—
but this time it is an attack on health and food conditions here,
but one so unfounded in the light of the present state of affairs
that the campus takes it quite lightly. Dr. Barbara Beattie
(and just who she is no one seems to know) writes in the
November issue of Good Housekeeping magazine on "College
Girls and College Doctors.” In her article she says: "The most
sensational and inexplicable thing that I found was six cases
of smallpox at the University of Oregon.”
True, there was a minor outbreak of the disease here two
and one-half years ago, and it mqst have been at that time
that Dr. Beattie visited the campus. But here is where Dr.
Beattie gives Oregon the worst of the deal. She fails to say
that since then there has been not a single case of smallpox
The writer goes on to take another crack at Oregon in this
way: "At the University of Oregon I lunched on macaroni, dried
beans, cabbage salad, bread, tea and cookies.” Again she fails
to give the whole story. Where did she get this luncheon? At
the dormitory? So it would seem from the contents of the
Scripps college's dorm meals come in for very favorable com
ment from Dr. Beattie. Yet does she realize that their director,
Mrs. Edna Prescott Davis, was in charge of Oregon's dorms
when she visited here ? Could Oregon’s meals have been so very
bad when they were prepared under the direction of the same
woman who is so highly praised in one paragraph and equally
censured in another? It seems very illogical to us.
Well, who will be "Investigator” No. d?
A Whale of a Fuss!
Tl yf'cCOOL’S whale, or Ethelbert in more common usage, is
**■ dead. Thank goodness! All that remains now is for some
Portland court to find the killers of the whale guilty on some
trumped-up charge or other and to dispose of the remains of
the sea creature.
The case of Ethelbert is a strange one indeed. The stroke
of fate that sent the young killer whale up the Columbia river
to Portland was only the first of the misfortunes of the animal
that finally ended in its death. A stop in Astoria or St. Helens
could have ended happily, with Ethelbert getting away without
a scratch. Fishermen of the sea would hardly get hysterical
over finding a twelve-and-a-half-foot fish in their front yard.
True, they might have killed the fish, but it would have hap
pened so suddenly that Ethelbert wouldn't have suffered over
much and the humane society wouldn’t even have heard about
it. But a stop in Portland is another matter.
After wandering about like a lost soul m Portland waters
for a few days, with thousands of people looking on with joy
at his efforts to escape, Ethelbert suddenly meets his death at
the hands of a harpooner. It seems that Ethelbert was sick
unto death already. Only the poor marksmanship of Portland
gunmen had allowed him to live so long anyway. But to meet
death at the bands of a harpoon without the sanction of humane
society officials is a terrible thing in Portland.
Somehow, we can summon no tears over the fate of Ethel
bert. Killer whales are vicious scavengers of the sea who live
by tearing out in huge chunks the tongues of the larger whales.
They plunder without discrimination and fear not man or beast.
For one to meet death in such a strange fashion need not call
for our sympathy.
On the other hand, if we are one to make a great show of
our sportsmanship and tender regard for dumb animals, we need
not weep over Ethelbert. There is nothing cruel in patting out
of his misery a creature so completely out of his element. And
Ethelbert did die like a true whale fighting to the last. How
humiliating it would have been for the proud killer of the sea
to meet his death at the hands of those seeking to ease him into
another world by humane methods! Better to die at the en i
of a harpoon. Whales in heaven would hardly welcome one who
had been traitor to all the'traditions of the sea!
Oh-oh-oh! Call out the national
guard and the .state militia! Also,
incidentally, the Dean of Women,
and tak" a look at the ugly con
dition ; ,/revailing on the Oregon
campus. Campus co-eds are on the
