A Freshman Foundation
2 2« A HANDFUL of students. A struggling department of
journalism in its first year at the University. A little
classroom in the basement of McClure hall, adjoining the office
of the single instructor, a seasoned newspaper man. Two small
presses and some old-fashioned type, donated by Harrison Kin
caid, owner of the old Oregon State Journal, for the mechanical
1932: Two hundred students in 24 classes taught by a large,
competent faculty. The school housed in its own building. A
well-equipped printing shop, U3ed for the publication of a student
paper, as a laboratory for practical courses in printing and shop
managements, and to turn out job printing, is an important part
of the school. The school is degree-granting.
The school of journalism has undergone great changes, has
seen much progress, in the 20 years since its inception. Largely
responsible for this growth and influence is the man who was
called to the University to teach the first journalism classes
offered, and who is still with the school, an able instructor and
a smart newspaper man.
Friday evening students, grads, and newspaper men through
out the state gathered to honor Dean Uric W. Allen, completing
his twentieth year with the University. Tribute was paid Dean
Allen by representatives of the classes he has guided in those
20 years. Newspaper men who have sought his advice and aid
in the years past added their appreciation. A material token
was presented in the form of a piece of very fine printing—that
master argument for the freedom of the press, John Milton's
Tributes are difficult to give, but the Emerald is genuinely
sincere in voicing the thoughts of the University student body
with its heartiest congratulations.
^\UR CONTEMPORARY, the Oregonian, devotes 10 inches of
valuable editorial space to a well-meaning editorial entitled
"Fraternity Finances." The meat of the message is found in the
"If there is an inflation of the fraternity system,
there should be deflation, perhaps by limiting the
percentage of freshmen that any house can have out
of its total membership. But forcing a number of
houses into bankruptcy in one year would be a bit
The unpleasant aroma about that last sentence emanates
from a regulation proposed to the state board of higher educa
tion to compel all freshmen to live in dormitories. We agree
with the Oregonian's guess at tne consequences, and concur in
the belief that bankruptcy would be just a teeny-weeny-bit
rough, even if everyone is doing it these days.
We further concur with the Oregonian that such a rule might
be taken to the courts as confiscatory action; the effect of the
proposal would be to strengthen dormitory bonds and obligations
against fraternity paper.
We must dissent, however, from the opinion that the loss of
freshmen could be made up by "letting down the bars” in the
upper classes and pledging third and fourth year men without
scrupulous care for personality or computability. That's already
been done, and it's the only reason that "deflation" didn't begin
this year, when University registration dropped about 25 per
Tiie fraternity system on this campus is not "inflated,” but
it has been built on a plan of four-year membership. To knock
the foundation out from under that plan without a proper period
■ of readjustment would be more than "a bit rough.”
We Want Revenue!
We Want Revenue! tte ..lUb ritong
HpHESE spring Jays are no time for worrying about “balanc
ing budgets,'’ but everyone from U. S. Senators down to
Josephus Universitas is doing it.
We follow the tax struggle on the floor of Congress with in
terest, for it presents many striking comparisons to our personal
situations. The debates on the sales tax are just about as ap
pealing and almost as unsuccessful as our last six letters home,
as far as bringing in new revenue is concerned.
The government will get $135,000,000 more by raising the
postage rate from two to three cents. So we wonder if we can't
pay that $3.79 laundry bill by raising our rates on writing term
papers for student plutocrats from 25 to 29 cents a hundred
words. We re still looking for a personal parallel for the tax
on speculative stock sales, but perhaps we can become salesmen
for the “Reele Sylke” company and get a commission on sock
We have no sympathy with the unreasonable ones who want
to see the government cut its expenses by eliminating bureaus.
What John W. Kelly says in the Oregonian about the impossi
bility of crossing a bureau off the budget after it is once set up
is all too true.
Can you imagine us eliminating the Bureau of Cauoe-Navi
gation, the Board of Terpsichore, or the Commission on Nico

RING OVER EXPENSES

Democrats said he was “shirking
responsibility’’ by not proposing
the reorganization plan himself.
Meanwhile, the tax bill—the key
stone of the budget balancing pro
gram—reached the senate amid an
uproar of debate.
Senator Long (D., La.), opened
an attack on the house bill and de
manded greater taxes on the
wealthy. He was promptly an

Mississippi, the ranking Democrat
on the finance committee, who

the president was shirking his re
sponsibility but said, rather, the
chief executive had been denied by
the senate the power to reorgan

Robinson suggested, speaking
solely for himself, a reduction in
government salaries as a means
of promoting economy. This drew
a sharp protest, however, from
Senator Couzens. Long also op

CALLISON TAKES OVER

The position of freshmen coach,
which Callison occupied under
Spears and before that under Cap

be filled by Jack O'Brein, who

definite, however, Callison admit

members of the football squad,
which held a peppery workout in

The following statement was

1 cative of the sentiment of himself
and the other members of the
council: "The selection of Prink
Callison as head football coach at
the University of Oregon we are
sure is going to be a most popular
one. Prink has the whole-hearted
support of the students, admini
stration and the alumni of the
state without the slightest doubt.
In his three years at Oregon he
has proven himself to be one of
the most outstanding young
coaches of the entire country. His
teams here have been a sensation.
They have always been well
coached and with a winning com
plex that was seldom denied. His
teams have always been very
popular because of the spectacular
brand of ball that they have
played—a winning type of foot
ball that has thrilled the crowds.
“We have never considered an
outside coach. Why should we
when we have such a man of
Prink Callison’s calibre right here
on the campus? With undivided
opinion for him, and with such
excellent material on hand, we are
looking forward to a very success
