• —Charles Anderson Dana, New York Sun :
*T'HE YOUNG men of Louisiana State university,
whom Oregon meets in intersect-fonal combat
'next week, may not be great football players, but
Alley are certain to be courageous opponents and
JJplendid sportsmen. It is in the land below the
•Mason and Dixon line that America's most valorous
[football teams are formed. It is said of the drawl
ing southern lads that they "speak softly and hit
[hard." They are the sort of fellows who almost j
break a man in half with their vicious, clean
[tackles in one moment and then help him to his
•feet in the next.
■ • Theirs IV. a wonderful heritage, those boys of the
'South. They carry on the traditions of a region
[whose men once stood off the might of the nation
• lour long years. From the South came Jefferson
.Davis, the fiery dreamer, who visioned a country
"separated from the Union. At his beck and call,
, there rode forth lantern-jawed cavalrymen to
[carry the banner of the Confederacy against the
• blue-coated Federals assembled by the great man j
[ who occupied the White House from '61 to '65.
Nathan Bedford Forrest, Braxton Bragg, Pick

• valiant men to fight for an ideal they never at-!
[tained. The old South has disappeared now. No!
longer Is it a land studded with vast plantations
and hospitable mansions fronted by colonial pillais.!
It is a region of agriculture and manufacturing,
much like the West and New England.
But still the tradition is carried on, although its '
bearers no longer wear the grey and Jefferson
• Davis has been in his grave these 50 years aud '
more. The heritage of the South now falls partially
to its young athletes. The Lees, Pickets and For- j
rests of today art- Johnny Cain, Dixie Roberts, Don '

<<TF YOUR primary interest in final examinations.
is to got ttie best possible grades out of them.:
you've got to play up to the professor," Dean J. R.
Jewell told a iarge group of freshmen Monday.
This paper believes Dean Jewell should be ;
praised for his frankness. Such a statement mils'
have been hard for the dean of the school of edu
cation to make. But coming from such a person,
makes the statement all the stronger.
For years students have recognized that tlv ^
only way to "get grades" from certain professors ,
was to repeat on examinations just what had been
handed out in lectures. But this is about the first
time it lias been given public recognition by a dean
of education.
However, this statement by the dean cannot lie
taken without qualification. There are some
"profs" for whom considerable analytical, indue
‘tive and deductive thinking lias to he done in the
•writing of final examinations. There are others
who would cut down a student's grade if the exam
paper had too parrot-like a nature.
Seceral young professors have expressed the
wish that students, particularly freshmen, would
come around to visit with them; not for "handshak
ing," but in a natural attitude, just to get acquaint
ed. They believe that in this way the student will
be enabled to get the most out of the class and the
professor will be able to better fulfill the lemaud.
ol that particular student.
SOCIAL contacts and poise, you probably have
been told on numerous occasions, are the sole
and only benefits to be realized from attendance in
an institution of higher education. The next time
somebody says that, you might send him over to the
art school. Tell him to ask one of the professors
how Rembrandt and the other great masters of
painting obtained their effect. If he does any in
dependent thinking, he probably will alter consid
erably his ideas on the importance of social attri
butes and graces, not that they aren’t valuable to
a high degree.
Rembrandt's masterpieces were not great be
cause the central figure dominated the scene.
Rather were they noteworthy because the rest of
the canvas was as fine and excellent as the object
which was the theme of the painting. The great
Dutch artist achieved greatness because the back
ground of his splendid paintings were as correct
in detail and excellent in technique as the dominant
character, thereby magnetizing attention on the
entire canvas instead of its integral.
What is true of paintings is also true of human
beings. The person with social graces and poise,
but has nothing with which to back up these at
tributes, constantly focuses attention on himself.
He is the dominant theme of everything he does.
And, sooner or later, his friends and his foes begin
to see his flaws. No one is perfect, and the surest
way to make your detriments paramount in the
perspective in which others see you is to subordi
nate all else to yourself.
But the person with a background is like n1
painting by Rembrandt. He does not make HIM
SELF the cynosure of all eyes. Rather, he lets
his background, which is just another word for
knowledge, speak for itself. The man who can con- ■
verse intelligently and authoritatively on art, litera
ture, science, history, athletics, government and a j
thousand and one other topics does not have to (
push himself forward. His knowledge takes care j
of that.
Think it over—it's worthwhile. You have an op-1
portunity here to build yourself a background.'
Don’t neglect that in a search after drawing-room
graces and dance floor finesse. It is always easier1
to put across your background than your manners.1
The former, if it’s good, doesn’t need a sales talk.
The latter, if nothing accompanies them, can’t be
sent over the pike with the most convincing sales
talk ever uttered.

THE RESIGNATION of Alex Brown, alumni
secretaiy, is to be regretted, but it does not
come as a surprise to his many friends. His work
here has been accomplished and under present con
ditions the field for his abilities is extremely limited.
He was called from the Oregonian because of his
excellent record and his organizing ability, to lead
the vicious Zorn-Macpherson school moving mea
Mr. Brown has had the confidence of the entire
Oregon alumni, and his work in unifying their de
fense against the measure was invaluable in build
ing up state-wide opposition to it. His effectiveness
was demonstrated by the huge vote that snowed
under the measure.
Bob Allen, who will take his place, is well quali
fied for the position. He has worked with Mr.
Brown throughout the fight against the bill. He
has a first hand knowledge of the workings of the
office, and a great deal of experience in dealing with
alumni. He has had practical newspaper experience
on the Register-Guard and several weekly news
papers. His appointment is endorsed by the Emer
HE REAL significance of Christmas, often for
gotten in the mad rush of college days, will be
re-emphasized Sunday when the combined poly- -
phonic choirs and the University symphony orches- j
tra will present Handel’s ’’The Messiah.” As this
concert is free to all students, it should be well at
In times like these, when every merchandising
establishment is doing its best to capitalize on the
Christmas idea (or Xmas, as they call it in their ,
advertisements), it is only natural that busy col-'
lege students, worried about exams, should be
come Xmas conscious instead of Christ-mas con
scious. That is what commercialism has done to
this great holiday.
Attend "The Messiah," but before you do that
go to the Christmas Revels.
The combination of the two will give you what
you should get out of Christmas, good fellowship
and fun, on the one hand, and a deep understanding
of the real significance of the Christmas idea, on
the other.
DOOPERATION of the manager of the Univer
sity, Mr. Orville Lindstrom, makes possible the
balancing of the budget for the 1933 Oregana.
Without the consent of the administration to the
collection of Oregana payments, the book woujd not
only face a large deficit, even with the carefully
pruned budget, but its very existence would have
been threatened.
Undet the present plan, Oregana payments will
be collected at the first of each term by the cash
ier's office. This entails additional bookkeeping, but
the office has gladly come to the aid of the dis
tressed finances of the annual.
That the students really are interested in the!
fate of the year book is evidenced by the number
of inquiries that come to the Emerald daily. The
contingent gift of the senior class will meet any
deficit that the book may incur up to $500.
K TAKE this opportunity to thank those who
have cooperated in the publication of the
Emerald this term. We extend appreciation to:
Robert Hall and his staff at the University
George Godfrey and his assistants at the infor
mational service.
Hugh Rosson, R. H. Robuett, and the other em
ployees of the graduate manager's office.
Eric W. Allen and George Turnbull of the school
of journalism.
And all others who, in any way. shape or form,
have assisted us in the task of providing the cam
pus with a newspaper five times every week. Wo
look forward to continued cooperation from them
in the winter and spring terms to come.

Plight of Minor Sports
'T’HIS is being called a financially
1 unsuccessful footbah*~year 'be
cause the receipts have not been
sufficient to support the minor
sports in the style to which they
are accustomed. The failure of
football, in other words, is only in
comparison with other seasons
not with other sports.
The trouble with the other
sports is that when football first
began to become popular and to
turn in large sums to the student
body treasuries the other sports
proceeded to sit down and take j
life easy. They quit making a bid
for crowds. Baseball, track and
field, swimming, boxing and wres
tling all proceeded to live off the
ill-gotten gains, quieting their
consciences as best they could.
Only basketball'has to any extent
paid its own way
And now that football cannot
turn in such large amounts, these
other sports are bewildered over
the prospect of supporting them
It has been a mistake from the
first. The other sports often re
quire a higher degree of individual
daring and ability than dees foot
ball, and while football is admit
tedly the more picturesque spec
tacle, the other sports, neverthe
less, should have kept up the cam
paign to win as many fans as pos
sible. If they had they would nqt
be so hopeless when the announce
ment is made that football receipts
are not sufficient for them. They
would be able to continue after a
fashion on their own receipts. Per
haps the present emergency will
be good for them. Perhaps it will
teach them to keep their own
wares before the public.—Morn
