A Greater Welcome
INTENTION the words “welcoming rally” and you usually sug
-L gest to the majority of students a football team returning
victorious from a big game. But for once the words mean some
thing different as a student committee plans a celebration for
Friday, January 8, to outdo that tendered Oregon’s football team
as it came home from New York City.
On that day of the first week of winter term, Roger Pfaff,
Robert Miller, and David Wilson—Oregon's Pacific Basin good
will ambassadors—will return home. 'Conquerors of speakers in
foreign lands, excellent representatives of American youth, the
men have brought international fame to the University of Ore
gon, the state, and the nation. As a small reward for their
triumphs, the campus must turn out en masse to welcome the
Students in charge of the welcome have a hard job ahead
unless the campus gets behind the welcoming celebration from
the start. It is easy to get enthusiasm at a high pitch to wel
come a football team that has won a great intersectional game.
But great as was the gridiron victory against N. Y. U. in bring
ing national fame to Oregon, how much greater is the triumph
of Oregon's good-will ambassadors who have brought world-wide
acclaim to the University.
The campus must surpass the New York welcoming celebra
tion with its demonstration January 8.
Work, a Crutch for Limping Grades
TT probably does not require an editorial and a front-page story
to make the student body "exam-conscious,” for the weeks
between Thanksgiving and Christmas are notoriously short.
The realization that final exam week is only a fortnight off
descended suddenly upon students returning from Thanksgiving
vacation. Thought of the next two weeks in which, for many,
a term’s work must be done, has been postponed and postponed,
but the "fatal day" of ill fame is fast approaching none the
Although it is probably too late now to bemoan the wasted
hours which should have been employed either in classes or in
the library, most professors agree that with good stiff work
the next two weeks many limping grades may be helped over
the stile which separates “D's” from flunks into the sunny land
of passing marks.
Mr. Average Man Thinks
LETS HAVE LOTS OF STU
DENT BODY DANCES. They are
a worth while form of democratic
social training besides getting
away from the bugaboo of formal
ity. It’s a good place to crash into
acquaintance with that good look
ing girl you’ve ALMOST got ac
quainted with in class.
Thomas Mooney, Hie martyr of
modern socialism, is being aided in
an attempt to get out of San Quen
tin prison by the notorious head of
the world’s most corrupt city gov
ernment. Walker is apparently
trying to get some free sob stuff
publicity. Mooney knows it and
Says that he will not accept a pa
role procured by Jimmy or any
An unconditional opardon is-the
only thing for Mooney. Maybe
Mayor Walker will get it. maybe
he won’t. One thing certain
Walker will try to emerge from
the case with a halo, whether
Mooney is better or worse off.

Two parts of today's review of
the football situation. The first is
old Dr. Average Man’s prognosti
cation on Oregon’s next football
team. Ail the northwest sport. -
writers are boOoting Oregon for the
coast championship uiul a leg on
the national next season. It' 1
don’t miss my guess Oregon and
every other team in the country
will do a lot of expense cutting
next year in order to meet the
growing demand for honesty in in
tercollegiate athletics. Beware ye
coaches and almost professional
teams. Football is just a game.
Just a brief comment on the
Oregon State-Utah game Satur
day. The cause is just but does
Oregon State need $2oOO expense
money as published ? Aar o n
Frank, Portland’s football enthu
siast. says that only a few hundred
of the thousands of tickets avail
able have been sold. If those in
charge don’t look out the expense
will swallow up the gate receipts
and another charity fiasco will
have come to pass.

LET’S BE HONEST
To the Editor:
I have just read with interest
your football article in the Emer
ald of Dec. 1, entitled “Modern
Football; an Amateur Game,” by
Dean Gauss of Princeton. From a
good many years’ experience in
American colleges, I agree with
him in toto. I doubt whether there
is a college in the United States,
maintaining a good team, which
does not, in one way or another,
practice professionalism in the se
lection of its players. This being
commonly conceded, why not prac
tice common honesty and put an
end to it? And this, to my mind
could be done at once if the col
leges would change the rule of pro
fessionalism to the rule of com
This rule had its origin from two
causes. First, a snobbery amongst
many of the colleges to keep from
playing with a man, or men, who
had to earn their living. Happily,
this is almost a thing of the past.
Second, as the old rule did not pro
hibit freshmen from playing upon
a university team, professional
“ringers” were constantly carrying
their professionalism into the col
leges. It was no unusual thing
then to see professional men on
the football or baseball squads, or
even very occasionally on the
crews. Now, no freshman can be
on any team, and I contend, in the
name of common decency, that if
a man goes to college, maintains a
good standing in his studies for a
year, he is a bona fide student, and
should not be kept out of any con
Why, in the name of common
sense, if a man is a .good student
and poor, should he not be allowed
and encouraged to join in summer
sports for pay, if he can do better
that way than work at ditch-dig
ging, farming, or engineering? You
might as well rule him out of the
games because he works on a farm
for pay and to increase his
strength. Let’s throw down these
artificial bars and be honest.

Camels are never parched or toasted
Have you noticed the new trend in cigarettes? —
freshness is the popular thing.
That’s because a fresh cigarette, as demonstrated
by Camels, is something smokers have discovered as
better than anything they ever tried before.
Camels are fresh in the Camel Humidor Pack be
cause they’re made fresh to start with — blended of
choice, delicately mild, sun-ripened tobaccos in which
t .e natural moisture and fragrant flavors are vigi
The tobaccos in Camels are never parched or toasted
— the Reynolds method of scientifically applying heat
guarantees against that.
That's why we say with so much assurance that
Camels are truly fresh. They’re made fresh — not
parched or toasted —and then they’re kept fresh in
the Camel Humidor Pack.
Try Camels’ freshness for a change. Switch over
for just one day, then change back — if you can.
