We Need Action
XXTITH the faculty’s decision made on graduation and junior
T certificate requirements under the new alphabetical grad
ing system, the interfraternity council must now speed up and
settle once and for all the perplexing question facing hundreds
of freshmen on the campus—“How many points will I need for
initiation?’’ We are only three weeks from the end of the term,
yet no freshman, or upperclassman either, has a definite idea
as to what house grade requirements will be. Many are the
surmises made, but no definite action has been taken.
The interfraternity council, since the new grading system was
explained to it by Dr. C. L. Huffaker, has had plenty of time
to think over initiation requirements. Now we would like to see
some decision. The first of next week is none too soon for
Initiate quality or quantity—this was the question put
squarely before the interfraternity council by Dr. Huffaker. On
the 0.75 of a grade point per hour basis quality would result.
The 12-point basis, he said, would bring quantity.
University scholastic standards are rising. Should not fra
ternity initiation standards rise at the same time ? We say,
adopt the 0.75 house grad6 requirement.
Musings of the Week

oil-well derricks) were to be permanent this year. Seems that

Mr. Average Man Thinks
The editorial page of any
newspaper is only a small part
of the complete bulk of that pa
per. In a still smaller propor
tion is the amount of space giv
en to expression of the opinions
of the people who read the pa
per. It is the purpose of this
column to present a collective
View of student opinion on sub
jects of general interest. This
column is not written by a mem
ber of the Emerald staff and
any opinions published are not
necessarily the opinions ol the
editor of the Emerald.
It must be the weather that is
responsible for so much contro
versy and backbiting in collegiate
circles these days. Down in Cali
fornia schools they manage to
spread their scandals over the
course of the whole year. Up here

Under the head of "too techni
cal” comes the revisions of the
University grade system. About
the only students who need to wor
ry are those who in former years
have slid by with grades of "X."
A few of the newer professors may
apply the revisions seriously but
it’s a fair guess that many of the
older ones will make as little
change as possible.

Now tlial a new international

good idea and there ought to be
more discussion along that line.

Outside of the weather, perhaps
the most popular casual topic of
conversation among students is
that of SLEEP. Dean of Women
Schwering thinks that college stu
dents get far too little sleep. On
the other hand, Thomas Edison
thought that the body functioned
best when occupied a maximum
amount of the 24 hours. He con
sidered four hours plenty of sleep
and upon that theory lived to be
83 years old. The truth probably
is that, within reasonable limits,
what the individual considers
enough sleep is the proper amount.
Forget how much sleep you’ve lost
in the last week or month and you
won’t be half as tired and v/orn
out. It’s mental.
Wonder what a man goes to
school for? To gain knowledge
and mental training or to defend
the honor of the old school by be
ing chief ballyhoo in charge of tid
dledewinks, etc., etc., etc.? Looks
like Mathews tried to put the ca

The Heart Bomb
Of Aunt Eppie
Dear Aunt Eppie:
I was all hopped up about this
“Health Weak" posture contest,
and all of the girls in the house

(standing as straight as possible)
only to find that I did not win.
Why didn’t I win?
I am not an authority on pos

Turnout at Manila
If Oregon students accept the
word of Robert Miller, one of Ore
gon’s Pacific basin debaters, there
might be some justification for the
anonymous letter from Manila that
appeared in a recent edition of the
Emerald, for the debate between
the Oregon team and the Univer
sity of Manila was certainly a
knockout, according to the debat
“Though we didn't have as big
a crowd as the World Tour had,
nevertheless we cannot complain,”
said Miller, in a letter received by
Walter E. Hempstead, faculty ad
viser for the Basin Tour. “The de
bate was broadcast, and we were
told that every business house
where there was a radio, big
crowds stood around listening, like
they do in the United States on the
eve of a world’s championship box
“The results of the debate were
announced in glaring headlines on
the front pages of the Manila
newspapers. Every time we made
a move or said anything it imme
diately appeared in the newspapers
on the front page and the editors
were not the least bit backward
about using us for subject matter
in their editorial columns.
“So we are through with our big
gest debate, and I believe that we
cbuld not have been much more
The debate was heard by radio
in New Zealand, Australia, China,
the Straits, and Japan, according
to reports received in Manila.
At present the debaters are in
Tokio, Japan, where they will be
until December 2. From there
they will sail for Hawaii, the last
country to be visited during the
tour. If they follow their sched
ule as it has been outlined, they
will arrive in Eugene January 8.

BOOKS OF THE DAY
EDITED BY ROY SHEEDY
MORE ABOUT RUSSIA
The XYZ of Communism. By
Ethan T. Colton. The Macmillan
As a general guide a thoroughly
fair treatment of the Russian sit
uation, Ethan T. Colton’s recent
book, “XYZ of Communism,” is
one of the best. Illustrated with
several dozen biting cartoons from
the Soviet press, documented with
statements of Soviet officials and
comprehensive quotations from
the Communist periodicals, up to
date in most ways, the “XYZ” car
ries the impression of sound schol
arship, accurate observation, and
a knowledge of what makes good
Colton has outlined the dogmas
of the party as set forth ten years
ago, and has then pictured the re
sults of the application of these
policies. The result is enlightening.
The author’s connection with
Russia during and after the fam
ine of 1921 as a member of the In
ternational committee of the Y. M.
C. A. has given him a wealth of
material for use in one of the best
chapters in the book, that on
“Communism and Religion.” “Cre
ating Communist Mentality” is a
penetrating study of educational
methods in the schools and among
the masses, and brings with it a
sane evaluation of Soviet social
The opening chapter on “The
Class War" is probably the one
most likely to be digested by our
society, for it is a calm and fair
discussion of the vital element of
Communism,—the destruction of
the bourgoisie, the elevation to dic
tatorship of the proletariat, that
creature of the industrial age.
Backed by evidence of every pub
lic measure of value, Colton pro
pounds the theory of the work
man’s rule, shows how it is applied
in Russia today, and then unfolds
the story of its tragedies. College
professors, he says, receive less
than janitors, both in wages and
in food rations.
What all this means to ourselves
becomes evident in the chapters,
“The Red Empire,” showing the
close-knit structure of present-day
Russia, and “World Revolution,”
explaining the exact nature of the
Communist party propaganda,
a3 expressed by party leaders, and
of governmental expansion.

The research in the field of ar
tistic appreciation is based on the
belief long held by modern psy
chologists and educators, that hu
man behavior is conditioned by
emotions rather than by intellect.
The project under way at Oregon
is seeking to develop a symmetri
cal program of education that
should seek to deal with all phases
of life. Training and development
of emotional as well as intellec
tual activities is included as a vital
part of this program.
Faculty Committee Directs
The work was started last year
under the direction of a committee
composed of leading faculty mem
bers. The project is seeking defi
nitely to determine what, if any,
relationship exists between the en
hanced capacity for appreciation
of beauty in the arts and the en
hancement of one’s altruistic urge,
I response to civic appeal and ideals
I in personal life. This is being done
I by a series of tests given not only
| to students but to faculty mem
bers and others.
“If there is any relationship
between these two types of emo
tional reaction, it will mean that
education will have found a method
by which we may consciously im
prove the altruistic and spiritual
life of those whom it educates,”
says Dr. Hall.
Emotional Life Must Be Developed
“If education is to meet the
challenge of the new day, it must
develop emotional life so that the
response to the emotional stimulus
of the age will be constructive
rather than destructive, will lead
to expression in forms that are
beautiful, rather than primitive
and that will become a great spir
itual force rather than its re
