PLACE: THE IGLOLO—1TIME: 10 A.M.- 11 A.M.
X^OUE PRESENCE at McArthur court this
morning from 10 to 11 o’clock is imperative.
At that time and place an assembly will be held,
the principal purpose of which is to further the
fight against the Zorn-Macpherson school moving
Into your ears for almost a year have been
dinned the evils of the aforesaid bill. Possibly you
’ are tired of hearing about it. Perhaps you think
the defeat of the measure is assured. Even at this
advanced date, with the November election virtually
at hand, the attitude of the student-body in general
is blase and nonchalant.
Experienced men are conducting the opposition
to the bill. They would not spend money, put forth
their efforts and time, and carry on such enter
prises as the assembly today, if the defeat of the
measure was a certainty. There is still consider
able danger that the bill might pass. The meeting
today at McArthur court is one of many projects
being planned to change a possibility into an im

do their share in thwarting this vicious measure.
The least they can do is attend this morning’s as
It would be a great calamity if the people of the
state of Oregon were to abolish the University at
the polls next month. It would be a still greater
calamity if that were done because the students
themselves failed to put forth their best efforts to
avert the disaster.
PROFESSORS OF BOOKS
TT WAS none other thun Ralph Waldo Emerson,
-*■ in an essay on ’’Books,” written hack in 1856,
“Meanwhile, the colleges, whilst they provide us
with libraries, furnish no professors of books, and I
think no chair is so much wanted.”
While there is no person at Oregon dignified
by the title, “Professor of Books,” the University
is fortunate in having a staff of librarians, all of
whom are willing and anxious to help students in
their search for various types of material that are
to be found in our library.
The library is hard pressed for funds this year,
and many of its workers are carrying double loads,
but the same efficient service of past years is being
When persons as busy as Miss Casford, refer
ence librarian, find time to address classes on the
best ways of finding and using reference material,
as she did yesterday before the class in editing, and
when every member of the staff is serving the
students to the best of his ability, we believe that
we really have some “professors of books" on our
A WORTHY INSTITUTION
T ITTLE theatres the country over luive tHe same
hard row to hoe. Competition with the com
paratively cheaper and more frivolous-minded
movies hurts their box office; struggle with the
buggaboo of scanty publicity, poor housing, insuf
ficient materials, and small treasury makes produc
tion difficult. And yet in these same littlo theatres,
maligned and neglected as they might be, is done
some of the best dramatic work to grace what
ever boards there be.
Eugene O'Neill, had it not been for little thea
tres, might not have entertained American theatre
goers, at least not so thoroughly nor for so long.
The amateur organisation is the testing ground for
new and novel material; it is the one medium open
to innovation in the field. Here can be found to
morrow's stars, and tomorrow’s playwrights. Here
can be found the new, and the daring, ami the
On the campus the Guild theatre plays a most
important role in the cultural life of the University.
Under the direction of Mrs Scybolt this group an
nually gives to Eugene the best dramatic enter
tainment possible. It has proven itself time and
again in the past. Announcements are out now for
the season’s program, which promises very well
indeed. And this is perhaps not so much a plea
as a promise. Our little theatre deserves our pat
ronage and support.
A VICTORY FOR 44 CENTS
A MESSAGE can make its sender famous and it [
also can help a football team win a game.
Examples of the former declaration are numerous.
Mr. Perry sent to Mr. William Henry Harrison:
"We have met the enemy and they are ours.” Mr.
Caesar communicated as follows: "I came, I saw,
I conquered." Lord Nelson flew from the halyards
of his ship: "England expects that every man will
do his duty.”
Thus, you sec, there is a double advantage in;
your sending a mertrage of good-will to the football!
team before the Idaho game Saturday. It not
only will be a stimulus to the players, but also;
might make you as f imoua as Mr. Perry, or Mr.
Caesar, or Lord Nelson, or any other celebrated1
message-sender of history.
Mr. McKevitt, our good friend of Western ■
Union, tells us a 10-word communication can be
sent to the team at the Washington hotel in Pull- ■
man, where it will stop, for only 44 cents. Ten
words from a house or organization on the campus
can mean considerable to a football eleven on for- |
eign soil, and 44 tents is not much of an investment
considering the dividends it might pay in football
Oregon’s football team is just starting out, and

its part by sending telegrams on the eve of the

ECONOMY HITS HARO
ECONOMY has hit the football team this year.
And hit it in the worst possible place. The
privileges of the managerial staff have been so cur
tailed that it is becoming increasingly difficult to
get men to turn out for sophomore manager. The
junior managers are not taken on trips any more,
and are not even offered the privilege of compli
mentary tickets to games at which their services
are not required.
At first sight this would seem a commendable
measure of economy, but its ramifications are what
make difficulty. There is far less incentive for men
to turn out for two or three years and work their
heads off, when they know that in all probability
they will never be made senior manager, and in
addition, will enjoy few if any privileges while a
junior manager. And there are few people who
care to work that length of time for absolutely
There is a certain amount of dirty work to be
done in the handling of any team. That is the pri
mary purpose of the managerial staff. Granting
that they do it satisfactorily, we must set some
goal, some point of achievement for them to strive
towards. Let's not forget the managers.
While the team is out tossing the pigskin on
the gridiron there are three or four fellows doing
quite a bit of work, sans the glory. Let's see they
get some reward.

Class treasurers ought to have
some kind of protection against
organized minorities. Very often
proposals for the expenditure of
considerable sums are passed
without due consideration by a
vote that represents only a small
part of the class.
Two or three years ago one
“class” voted $1,500 to a few ten
nis players to travel around to
summer tournaments. It was a
special meeting, hurriedly called,
and only a small proportion of the
members attended. But everyone
had to help foot the bill.
“There ought to be a law” is
the old bromide, but it’s good
medicine still in some cases. A
rule that no class could vote
money for any purpose until the
measure had laid on the table till
the next meeting wouldn't hurt
anything, and it might help a lot.

Campaign managers must keep

with warnings of threatening de

Sanders was back in New York
again after another of those
