I would rather live in a country that had newspapers and no government,
than in a country where there was a government, but no newspapers.—
Thomas Jefferson.
>’J"'HE WRITER who this morning takes over the administra
tive duties of the Oregon Daily Emerald realizes that one of
his most important and difficult tasks will be to maintain the
•tradition of quality and superiority that has existed for more
.than a decade. He also is aware of the fact that it will be in
cumbent upon him to add to that tradition to the utmost of his
ability. That this may be accomplished he pledges the sincere
"efforts of himself and his staff to the highly interesting endeavor
that lies ahead.
It also is the ambition of the writer to add another chapter to
the already notable record of the Emerald. Both he and his edi
torial assistants hope to publish a paper that will be fearless, yet
■tactful; interesting, yet informative; attractive, yet practical;
sympathetic, yet unbiased.
* If these qualities are achieved, the writer is certain the Emer
ald will be a valuable and useful organ to the students of the
University of Oregon.
* It is still too early to ascertain the policies of the Emerald in
•connection with specific situations and projects. The writer only
can set forth the major premises on which the paper will oper
ate. He hopes these will meet with the approval of the campus,
for he is sure their fulfillment will mean a better college news
The greater portion of the Emerald's columns will be devoted
.to news that directly concerns the students of the University.
Campus items will not be subordinated to leave space for stories
that are covered adequately in the metropolitan dailies.
To give the paper balance, a certain amount of national news
will be used. This will be mostly of a feature and opinionated
nature, thereby giving the students a closer insight into the af
fairs of the nation than could be provided by the editorial board
vf the Emerald.
Criticism will be along constructive lines. Personalities will
■be avoided as much as possible in editorial comment.
. The editor and his aides will debate and consider thoroughly
^before taking any definite stands. Once an opinion is given, the
paper will not be afraid to reverse itself should it be shown its
“error, but it will not vacillate in its arguments if it believes it is
Jn the right.
* The Emerald has no entangling alliances. There are no
strings attached to it.
The paper will have the courage of its convictions. The fear
of criticism or opposition will not deter it from crusading, pro
vided it believes its crusade is Justified.
* The Emerald will be conservative in whatever it does. Radical
Opinions and bolshevik tendencies will have places in neither its
jiews nor editorial columns. It is the opinion of the writer that
ii paper can oppose an existing order without turning radical in
iloing so.
* A spade will be called a spade. There will be no beating
ground the bush. If the Emerald is opposed to something, it
will say so.
In conclusion, the editor and his staff offer whole-hearted
and sincere cooperation to the students of the University. Ore
gon faces a crucial year, and the Emerald will put forth its best
. foot in an attempt to maintain student morale on its usual ele
vated plane. The esprit de corps of the University will gain,
rather than suffer, through the activities of the Emerald.
The latchstring of the editor’s office is always out. He will
welcome criticism and suggestion from any member of the stu
dent body. The students will be the prime consideration of the
Oregon Emerald. Their interests will be served at all times.
The appearance of the paper has been changed slightly. There
are considerably more pictures and the makeup lias been checked
more closely. The staff hopes these alterations meet with your
The writer appreciates the responsibility tliat has been con
ferred upon himself and ills staff. He hopes those responsibilities
will be fulfilled satisfactorily.
. KEGON women have just concluded a chapter in their rush
I ing history that has fallen below the high standards of for
mer years. Even the threat oi sophomore pledging failed to
curb the worst epidemic of Illegal rushing this campus has ever
* seen. Whether financial worries, or general nervous tension and
apprehension felt at home carried over into the school year is
a question. We do know (hat. whatever the cause, a few "hot
' boxing” group - stuffed ridiculous stories of scandal, finance,
and “weak” nationals down the unsuspecting throats of fresh
man women and thereby snatched them from the pledging folds
" of rival houses. Hushing through fraternities, forbidden by pan
- hellcnie, was blithely indulged in by many.
Hush week at Its best is crammed with confusion and keen
competition. To inject into this already difficult situation under
handed methods is disgusting as well as dishonest. We only can
hope that the ensuing year will heal the wounds of distrust
that this rush w'eck has opened among the houses, and that next
year will mark a return to the old fair, out-ln-the-open policies
that have disturgumht-d former \ ram
f SALUTAM,’36!
^iREEN LIDS, new faces, strange classes, football, the bon
fire, melee and melor, and this,year complicated by the ob
vious intentions of us all, in view of recent political develop
ments, to turn the campus into a skating rink and cyclers’ haven.
What a grand thing it is to look back from here to other days
and other freshman classes, and to reflect on the joys and {
glories of the frosh parade and the grand thrill of the mill-raco *
waters. | (
Fall term is one thing always. It is a grand business for the j»
freshman, perhaps the grandest of all. For once in your life you j '
combine all things— the spirit of adventure and fun with the
spirit of accomplishment and learning—the thrill of experience
with the thrill of achievement. Your excitement will not be temp
ered with satiety for a while at least. j
So we open our arms to the class of ’36, as we have to the ,
class of ’98 and ’35. Here in college, and what is in it will open
to you as surely as any Pandora's box of unexpected delights,
We hope that from the grab-bag of the next four years you will ,
all pull plums, and that you laugh more often than you cry. We i
hope that you learn much, that you forget some things, and that
the next few years here hold for you the same Illusion of gran- (
deur and joy that these few weeks will. 1
Salutam, ’36!
l 'T'HE DOORS of the Eugene churches swing open to the stu
dents tonight after the rally. It is the annual all-campus
church night, the religious organizations’ open house for stu
dents of the University of Oregon.
Whatever the form of entertainment, whether it be a recep
tion, an informal dance or a hilarious “Prison Riot,” you may 1
be assured of having a good time. The churches haven’t been ,
holding church night entertainments every year without learn- ,
ing something about what students like in the way of enter
tainment. The hilarity and good fun of tonight’s rally should
not be at all out of place at any of the church night affairs.
After all, the church does have a place to play in the stu
dent's life if he is seeking worthwhile fellowship and friend
ship, sane thinking and a way of life.
Tonight will be an evening of fun—for everybody, both dur
ing and after the rally.
OLD friend comes to the campus today—Maurice J. (Clip
per) Smith, football coach at University of Santa Clara.
When Clipper was an apprentice coach at Columbia university
in Portland, he was one of the best boosters Oregon athletics y
had. From the little school on the bluff above the Willamette,
he watched University sports with more than casual interest. |
Today he comes to Eugene at the head of one of the nation’s |
formidable football elevens. The chances are he’s changed slight- |
ly since he was a young fellow just breaking in at Portland, but
underneath it all he’s probably the same old Clipper. ! |
J. Montgomery Throckmorton wants to know if there’s going

What with all the bombing going on in Portland almost every
day it wouldn’t surprise us to wake up some fine morning and
find but a mere shred of the Ad building left. That shred would ! E
probably be the campus cop that makes fils hangout there. We
can’t imagine him moving under any condition.

Up in Portland 15 applicants have filed already for the |

free trip to Paree there's just been too much incentive for that S
job. ?
The girls who are afraid they may have to be in two hours

News item: “Psychologists say married couples are more ner

dents, anyhow ?

Contemporary Opinion 1
I 1 | NCERT AINTIES and turmoil
' *■ in our higher educational situ
ation in Oregon have had an effect
' of causing many young people now
, ready for college to turn their eyes
to other states. Attendance at
(university and college has shown a
decrease, at the university of some
34 per cent; at the college of about
30 per cent. Some of this is doubt-j
\ less due to the condition of the
| times, but more is undoubtedly due
! to the fact that in the throes of
change and of future uncertainties
'our young people have not felt like
starting at either university or eol
I lege in this state, and so many
who could finance the enterprise
| have turned to colleges in other
' states.
The state board of higher cduea
: lion has now completed unification
| of the schools. Reallocation of
(courses is done. The declared pro
gram is completely laid. Election
\of Dr. Kerr as chancellor has been
'the final and most important step
i in stabilization. His election has
already had a steadying effect.
Students may now enter univer
sity or college with assurance that
courses they mark for themselves
; may be completed where begun.
College tMt'. are formative
years. It is fine for boys and girls ! j
of Oregon families, who intend to [
live in Oregon, to have benefits of if
education with an Oregon back- .
ground and of permanent acquain- i
tanceships and contacts acquired i
in their college days. With Ore- j
gon's higher educational program
now settling down and with the
harbinger of restored confidence
symbolized by Chancellor Kerr's
election, it will not be surprising
if many boys and girls who were
turning elsewhere shall decide to
be educated in Oregon, after all. -

Sometimes I ride on the beach at
Where the restless foam meets
And wish that I could hide from
Df this dead yet frightened land
And little sparks fly all about
Where my horse’s hoof hits stone;
Flashing red they put to rout
My fear of all alone,
rhe stars and moon have lost to

And the air is a muffled weight

My heart and my soul as one.
Sometimes I ride on the beach at
When the tide has left the sand
Like a guilty bed that is brought

Unveiled by an unknown hand.
