With a Bouquet of Violets
'TMUED but happy, Oregon’s "Wandering Webfoots” are home
A again. And is the campus glad to see them back? Yester
day’s mammoth rally was a sure sign of that.
The campus set a new high mark for rally spirit when Doc
Shears and his warriors, who left their heel prints deep in New
York university’s Violet flower bed, stepped off the train yester
day. It was a welcoming celebration entered into by students
and townspeople alike, and one which Oregon's backers will have
to go far to beat this year or for a few to come.
We are proud of Doc Spears and the triumphant showing
he and his men made in New York. We are proud, too, of the
fine display of spirit given by the campus. If the two combine
again November 14 there will be no stopping Oregon in the
The Great Male Rebellion
^(O-EDS at the University of Washington were questioned last
week on their willingness to forego taxis, and corsages, and
food while dating during the current depression. The answers
'on the whole bode ill for the male collegians of Washington.
One gill of campus prominence said in reply to questions that
she would “rather stay at home and listen to the radio" than
ride with a date on a street car. Another remarks that street
cars remind her of hitch-hiking. Any number would rather stay
at home than date in such a fashion. While corsages were con
sidered a necessity by a very few, several found that eating
was an essential item in a good evening. Some few felt it col
legiate and quite the thing to ride in street cars in formal
To the co-eds of Washington, and elsewhere, who find they
would “rather stay at home and listen to the radio” instead
of dating on a street car, let us issue a warning: the great male
rebellion may be only days in the offing! Rumblings of dis
content have been heard at various times from college men.
Men are finding that “gallant” may be synoymous with “sucker.”
Within the past week a “50-50" club has been organized by the '
men at the University of Southern California. This group, com
txised of the best men dates of the U. S. C. campus, agrees
to take dates only on the understanding that the girls will foot
half the bill. Men at other colleges are rapidly adopting the
With such clear indications of the modern trend, the proud
co-eds of Washington might well take heed. It may not be
long until the street car will be the one means of escape from
home and the radio and the street car does have other things
than movement to commend it over the radio. And the beauty
who places riding in a street car in the same category with
hitch-hiking may soon find herself on the street corner with
her male escort hailing passing motorists with a swing of the
hand and a “ride, mister?”
The King Is Dead—
'-y'ilK King is dead but there is no other to reign in his
There was only one King, the line German police dog known
to every student on the campus. King, who went to classes in
the law school; King, who wagged a friendly greeting as stu
dents hurried along Eleventh; King, who helped carriers deliver
Emeralds every morning.
King is dead shot as he and another pup barked at a goat
tethered on a vacant lot near the campus. A double-barreled
shotgun ir. the hands of the goat’s owner took King’s life. There
was no warning to King’s master that the dog was bothering
anything. No warning to anyone. Just a shot in the early morn
King is dead, and the campus mourns. A man who has killed
a dog has killed the best friend of a fellow-man.
Humor has gone to all sorts of trouble on this continent to
demonstrate that few things can be laughed out of existence.—

EDITED BY ROY SHEEDY
PROF. MOLL, WRITES AGAIN
“Native Moments,” by Ernest G.
“Native Moments,” by Ernest G.
Moll, assistant professor of Eng
lish at the University of Oregon,
is a collection of lyric poems of
unusual power and beauty. It ful
fills the promise of his earlier book,
“Sedge Fire,” in breadth of emo
tion and depth of poetic force. The
book takes its name from a series
of fifty quatrains, called “Native
Moments,'’ each of which is a com
plete poem with a definite mood
and idea, but which is also part of
the larger story told by the group.
The movement unfolds from verse
to verse; and, while the group does
not in a strict sense constitute a
narrative poem, there is a develop
ment in idea and emotion that
gives unity to the whole. The re
mainder of the book is composed
of a number of single lyrics ex
pressing a variety of moods and
This book is notable for maturity
of feeling and mastery of form.
Here is no vague yearning after
nebulous and pretty dreams, but
vigorous and imaginative expres
sion of a sensitive and lusty joy
of life, expressed with skill and

ADORATION AND STARVATION
“Martin’s Summer,” by Yields
Baum. Translated by Basil
Creighton. Cosmopolitan Book
Vickli Baum wrote “Grand Ho
tel” and did it rather grandly, then
she followed up with “Hell in Frau
ensee,” or “Martin’s Summer” as
the English translation is called,
but failed to hit the High mark
gained in the critical American es
timation by her former book.
“Martin’s Hunger” might well
have been the title of this story oi
j a handsome young scientist’s hec
} tic three months in which he actec
j as swimming instructor for a mer
! cenary German pappa's bathing
! resort in order to stave off starva
i tion while waiting for word as tc
j the success of his invention oi
an inflammable film.
The young Apollo is very hand
some. Vickli Baum doesn't wani
you to forget the fact so she makes
constant reference to his “fair eye
brows.” Accordingly, all the wo
men in the town fall for him and
together with his starving, he ha:
quite a terrible time of it.
“Martin’s Summer” lacks th<
very quality that made "Grand Ho
tel successful: mainly, reality o:
character. Each figure exists with
out depth of feeling. A sense o:
actuality is lacking.
If you liked "Grand Hotel” yol
will be interested in “Martin’:
j Summer.” It is interesting, noth
