Order of 'O’ Votes Retention of Public Frosh Punishment Skull and Daggers Given Hacking Job r Proposed Repeal of Game Pigging Rule Shelved For Consideration By a 15 to 14 ballot, the Order of the “O” last night voted to turn over the “library steps” hacking sessions to the Skull and Daggers, sophomore men’s service honorary, who will punish tradition violators under the supervision of the let termen’s organization. The majority of those who voted against the change believed that the Order of the “O” should retain the present system, and a small number favored complete abolish ment of it. It was only after con siderable debate and hot argument that the organization was finally able to come to a decision on the subject. The proposed repeal of the tra ditional ruling prohibiting “pig ging” at athletic contests was re ferred to a committee consisting of Don Moe, Kermit Stevens, Harri son Kincaid, Bobby Robinson, Kel sey Slocum, and “Hack” Miller, who will confer with the adminis tration and make a report at the next meeting. The lettermen, in the interests of better sportsmanship between the various schools of the confer ence, demanded that all booing at basketball games be prohibited. The organization also went on rec ord as favoring exchange dinners between men’s houses, with the idea of increasing fellowship among men students on the cam pus. A suggestion that bronze life membership plates be awarded to members of the Order of the “O” was referred to a committee head ed by “Slug” Palmer. Such awards would admit the lettermen to any athletic contest in which Oregon would participate.

Curious Students • Fill Question Box At College Side Curiosity killed a cat once, so we are told, but the tragedy evi dently hasn’t dampened the curi osity ardor of Oregon students from the looks of the question box placed in the College Side Inn by Phi Theta Upsilon, upperclass women’s service honorary, and Skull and Daggers, sophomore men’s honorary. Herein for the past week have been pouring all kinds of questions on campus etiquette, to which puz zled students desire answers in the Oregon Courtesy Book to be pub lished spring term.

The place of meeting has been changed to International house, 727 East 13th, according to Mar garet Hammerbacher, president of the club, instead of Gerlinger hall, as previously announced. “Since I returned from last sum mer’s trip to Russia,” Professor Mueller said yesterday, “I have given at least 50 talks on every subject from how Russians treat their children to how they man age their Ford plants. Every group 1 talk to has some new angle it wants to hear about. Russia’s in ternational relations are especial ly interesting, since she holds a unique place among the nations.” Professor Mueller’s journey took aim to representative parts of the country.

The attempt of the lead ers of the athletic organization to make a real forward step in student traditions by abolishing forever the library step beatings fell short in their Wednesday night meeting, and the issue was gracefully dodged. For the first time in recent years the time appeared to be at hand when the organization, feeling itself charged with the duty of enforcement of Oregon traditions, might make a progressive step, and discharge itself of the task .of perpetuating what has been nothing less than a public disgrace. The progressive step, however, proved to be re actionary, and freshmen must still submit to humiliation on the library steps—only from other hands. It is discouraging to find that the University has not yet “grown up”—and it will never “grow up” as long as clumsy efforts are being made to enforce traditions that have long since passed into perdition as far as general stu dent feeling is concerned. Traditions are not changing in number, only in character—and the traditions that are sur viving the years are those that do not need the blow of a paddle to c'ommand respect. Wo can only hope that the sophomore Skull and Dag gers organization will consider the duty relegated to it as a dubious honor and refuse, with thanks, to comply with the request of the gentlemen of the Order of the 0. Pacific Debaters Will Be Honored At Formal Dinner Burt Brown Barker Will Be Toastmaster at Banquet Next Tuesday Evening As an expression of their appre ciation of the work of the Pacific Basin debaters in the interests of international good-will, the stu dents of International house will give a formal banquet next Tues day evening in honor of David Wil son, Roger Pfaff and Robert Mil ler.

Tuttle, house mother of International house.

Tuttle, sponsor of the organization, said yester day. “Because of whaUthey have done as ambassadors of good-will to other countries bordering the Pacific, the students of the house are taking this method of ex pressing their gratitude.” Westminster Thespians To Perform at Philomath Elaborate Preparations Are Being Made for Program The Westminster players will present Zona Gale's “Neighbors” tonight at Philomath in the com munity hall at 8 o’clock.

Emily Post Gives Tips, Latest Thing In Social English NEW YORK— (X.P.)— Do you say, “It's me?” You may not get by with it in English class—although you may if the prof is on the side of certain educators who are for liberaliza tion of grammar rules—but you are certain to get by with it in so ciety spelled with a capital S. Authority? None other than the eminent Emily Post, who knows what society does, says, eats and drinks. « Furthermore — Emily speaking again—when you say "not at all,” it is perfectly "proper” to say "not a-tall.” But you must never, in society, talk about “the little woman,” or “t h e gentleman friend.” Cast for ‘Journey’s End’ Leaves for Astoria Stage Trip Made Possible by Owners of Viking Theatre The cast of “Journey’s End,” re cently presented on the campus by the drama department, left yes terday afternoon for Astoria, where they will present the play at the New Viking theatre.

Page the Dean Requested When Salesmen Knock WARNING to all fraterni ties* and sororities that no magazine solicitors should be allowed within their doors with out being approved by the ad ministrative offices, was issued yesterday by Mrs. Hazel 1’ruts man Schwering, dean of women. At present no solicitors are allowed on the campus, and complaints that some of the salesmen operating among the living organizations were not genuine led to an investigation and the issuance of the warning to the students. It is suggested that when salesmen call, the dean of women’s office be called for verification of their creden tials. Do Not Intend To Leave, President Says Stories Believed To Have Started From Move To Merge Schools Rumors started on the cam pus and throughout tlie city last night that Arnold Bennett Hall, president of the Univer sity, had resigned his position, or was intending to do so. were flatly denied by l)r. Hall when called at his home last night. “There’s nothing to it,” Dr. Hall said when questioned by the Emerald. “I have not re signed at all and don’t intend to. I’m sticking to my job.” The rumors are believed to have arisen in connection with the action of the State Board of Higher Education Monday in appointing a committee to investigate the proposed unifi cation under one head of all higher education institutions in the state. It is unlikely that action on the unification plan will be taken until the summer session of the board, when the committee is expected to make its report. Dr. Hall came to Oregon in 1920 and was inaugurated as the Uni versity's fifth president on Octo ber 18 of that year, during the semi-centennial celebration of the University. Prior to taking the position here he held a professor ship in political science at the Uni versity of Wisconsin. President Hall returned to Eu gene yesterday from Salem, where he has been since Monday, attend ing sessions of the education board.
