The Oregon Daily Emerald, official student publication of
the University of Oregon, Eugene, issued daily except Sunday

The Emerald’s Platform for Oregon
THESE are the conutructive development*) which the Emerald
hopes to institute and help maintain at the University
ot Oregon :
1. Advance educational ideals.
2. Promote intellectual achievements.
3. Reorganize the student government structure.
(a) Establish a student parliament in an advisory capacity,
(b) Establish a faculty legislative committee.
4. Advocate a well-balanced athletic program.
5. Promote minor sports.
6. Subordinate extra-curricular activities to academic attain
7. Maintain the Emerald on its present status as a representa
tive college daily.
SOMETHING TO ABANDON WITH PLEASURE
IN A MOMENT of optimism we will venture to
predict that we are leaving that adolescent con
dition of unnecessary hysteria, known commonly as
the “rah-rah spirit,” behind us. If such is true,
as we pray it is, we should act immediately to sec
that pigging regulations, freshman caps and similar
childish nuisances are abandoned along with the
era that fostered and established them.
Freshman caps are trivial and hardly merit even
a suggestion to discard them. However, they have
been enshrined and hallowed to such a ridiculous
degree that numerous students and laymen regard
them as symbols of the state university of Oregon.
This condition never should exist and we trust that
those in authority will prevent it scontinuance.
Even less can be said in defense of the “unwrit
ten law” which prohibits a college man, accom
panied by a co-ed, from attending an athletic con
test without receiving a minimum of pleasure and
suffering a* maximum of humiliation. It is ridicu
lous in the extreme to picture such an occurrence
as a “grave and malicious offense against Oregon
traditions." If a student wants to take a female
acquaintance to a basketball game, it is nobody's
business except his own and the girl's. Surely it
is no affair of the mob that sits back of the bench
and sails paper “airplanes” onto the court to make
its personnel conspicuous.
It also is glaringly noticeable that the booing,
roughhousing and other undesirable contributions to
our athletic spectacles come from the rooting sec
tion, if such it can be called. No one, unless he b>‘
an isolated exception, is going to make a fool of
himself in public if he is with a companion of the
fairer sex. We are certain of that.
Tlie traditions council meets today. For what
purpose, we do not know. Our faith in its personnel
will increase prodigously if it elevates University
lore to a higher level by eliminating the pathetic
lemnar.ts of a bygone past which still pass for tra
ditions on this campus.
More than six years ago Brown university abol
ished freshman caps, along with similarly childish
relic . Questioned by the press, the president of
Brown said: “Colleges to which we look up aban
doned the freshman cap long ago. Colleges on
which we look down are still sanctioning it."
His reply, pertaining to all needless uud silly
customs, speaks volumes.

TT WOULD NOT be surprising if the highly cum
petent Air. Pecarovich of Gonzaga were named
football coach at Oregon State to replace Paul
Schissler, but we hope the athletic authorities at
Corvallis give serious consideration to Alonzo Stiner.
Schissler's assistant for so many years.
We base this hope not on any knowledge of ath
letics and football technique, for such we do not
have, but rather on the fact that Air. Stiner has
served Oregon Stute faithfully for so many years.
If the Orange authorities permit themselves to be
carried away by outside influences and name a
coach without considering Alonzo stiner, it will
give athletics at Corvallis a slap they cannot well
Thera uuiot be a premium on loug and iaithlul
service. When a man has been an efficient em- |
ployee as has Mr. Stiner, the least he is deserving .
of is serious consideration when there is an oppor-1
tunity for advancement. A junior clerk in a law
firm hopes to see his name on frosted doors some i
day. A newspaper reporter hopes to become an
editor. An interne looks forward to the day when
he will be a practicing physician. And—an assis
tant football coach awaits the time when he will
be placed in supreme command.
Let us hope that Oregon State does not over
look the man who has been a follower so long. He
deserves an opportunity to become a leader. We
know nothing of Mr. Stiner’s coaching ability. All
we know is that he merits consideration. Probably
Mr. Pecarovich, whom we believe to be a potenti
ally great coach, will land the post. But Mr. Stiner
should be considered.
Some of America’s greatest coaches have been
promoted from lower staff jobs to the head post.
Among that group is Doc Spears, ex-Oregon, who
jumped from freshman coach to head coach at
Dartmouth when he was 22 years old.
'T'WO CHOICE examples of the warped and un
grounded reasoning students will have to con
tend with when they take their places in the busi
ness ana political world after graduation are to be
found in the accounts of last week's city council
meeting in Portland. It is just such reasoning on
the part of social or political leaders that our more
liberal professors are striving to teach us to guard
In the argument over repeal of the Portland
prohibition ordinance, one church leader said that
liquor broke up homes and damaged the well-being
of the community. This statement is not contested.
But its use as a reason for not repealing the pro
hibition ordinance is a flagrant disregard for the
facts. Under the present ordinance any variety of
liquor could be obtained within a few blocks of the
council chambers. And this liquor would be just as
quick to break up homes as the kind sold before
the ordinance was passed or after it was repealed.
The other example comes from a leader of the
Portland Presbytery. It is, as quoted in the Ore
gonian: “He was against repeal because he knew
what liquor has done to the working man, and that
he will not ask the parents of Oregon boys to send
their boys to the citizens’ military training camp
at Vancouver this summer because of the repeal of
the ordinance there.”
* This completely overlooks the fact that the Ore
gon boys, if they want it, undoubtedly can get more,
cheaper, and better, or worse if you prefer it, liquor
in their home communities.
These two statements would be pathetic and
laughable if they did not come from leaders in the
community. It is on the basis of arguments such
as these that the councilmen are supposed to make
Students who were such “babes in the woods”
as to be taken by similar statements recently re
ceived heavy penalties in final examinations in eco
nomics. The question is: “Will they be taken in
by such arguments after they graduate?”

Another Lowell Achievement
T TPON the very eve of his retirement as president
^ of Harvard university, Dr. Abbott Lawrence
Lowell lias once more demonstrated that time has
not withered his aggressiveness on behalf of the
humanities nor custom staled his executive ingenu
ity. With that singular pioneering liberality which
has made innovation and fresh endeavor synony
mous witli the name uf the most traditionally con
servative university in the land, Dr. Lowell has now
instituted new facilities at Cambridge for research
in the field which may with real propriety be termed
"higher education.” His foundation of a Society of
Fellows at Harvard, its liberal endowment, rumored
to be at his own expense, and the throwing open to
the members of the society of every research facil
ity of the institution are an authentic gesture to-1
ward creative enterprise and will constitute one!
more valuable souvenir of Dr. Lowell’s executive:
At no other American educational institution1
lias any body of creative scholars been evolved
similar to that brought into being by Dr. Lowell, j
The closest extant approach to the Harvard plan
is Ail Souls’ college at Trinity, Cambridge, whose
members have contributed more than one-half of
the British winners of the Nobel prizes to date.
With the proper atmosphere already established
at Cambridge on t lie Charles by tlie successful
functioning of the house plan there would seem to
be no good reason why the prestige of the body of
British scholars should not be rivaled by the for-!
lunate beneficiaries of the Harvard endowment. To
those mistrustful of the Innovation the house plan
itself will serve as a very effective assurance of
Dr. Lowell's capacity for directing the future of
Whether or not the best of tHe present genera
tion of young scholars emerging from our colleges
and universities will be willing to devote them

ultimate goal of a doctorate or other higher degree .
will be shown, of course, by time alone. It is the
“stranglehold of the Ph D." that Dr. Lowell’s Soci
ety of Fellows is attempting to loosen. Scholar

to those to whom the lamp of learning is a more
alluring goal than ermine and velvet, or even the

A Message to Garcia
This is one of a series of articles to which outstanding members of
Oregon's higher educational system are contributing. Another will be
published in the next issue of the Emerald.
By JOHN L. CASTEEL
(Head of the Speech Division)
TC7ITHIN three days after this
™ term had opened, three stu
dents came to ask me the same
question: “Tell me, what is the use
in a young fellow going to school
It makes a difference, of course,
who it is that asks that kind of
a question. For some students the
answer at any time might have
been, “No use at all.” But this is
not the answer these students
sought or deserved; and it is not
an adequate answer for many oth
er students, who, in conversation,
in discussion, or in their own
thoughts, are asking the same
Undoubtedly, as these questions
imply, our estimate of the useful
ness of university training has
forced to undergo some revision in
these hard times. For every stu
dent in whose mind this necessity
has become articulate, there are
many more in whom a sense of
confusion or frustration of pur
pose is making itself felt. What
significance is to be given to this
stir of uncertainty, and this shak
ing of confidence?
The value of college training has
been urged upon most of us as be
ing one of two kinds: the cultural
value or the vocational value. We
have accepted the usual faith that
education gives us the power and
the skill needed to better the con
dition of our lives. Hamlin Gar
land records, in one of his books of
literary reminiscences, his impres
sion of a commencement audience
he addressed at the University of
South Dakota. Before him were
gathered the parents of the grad
uating class, and in their faces he
observed the marks of toil, com
monplace living, and sacrifice they
had undergone in order that their
children might not have to work
as hard, and might get more out
of life than they had been able to
do. The commencement of almost
any of our universities anywhere
witnesses this same traditional as
piration in both the older and the
But does education promise any
longer a realization of these
hopes? In the minds of many stu
dents it seems possibly true that
education does not. Neither cul
turally or vocationally, they say,
can a college education be entered
as an indubitable asset. The fruits
of cultural pursuits, the quicken
ing of our powers of appreciation,
the sense of direction in the af
fairs of life given by knowledge
and by the brightening contacts
with the sciences and with letters,
may give pleasure, zest, and se
renity to life in times when we can
be sure of sustaining ourselves in
a material environment that af
fords us security, leisure, and an
opportunity to exercise our tastes
and powers. But the prospect of
our being forced to return to a
standard of living that affords no
such assurance and comfort may
turn our tastes and insights we de
velop iu our cultural pursuits into
a source of sordid discontent. "Im-|
agine me reading Shakespeare in
my home town.” said one student,
with risiug inflection.
V $ ♦
And, they go on. our vocational
preparation stands us iu little bet
ter stead We Uad conic to believe
that the trained individual would'
be the man or woman to succeed
in the competition for position and
income. Our vocational ad’dsers
talked to us of the importance of
finding a special field for our ef
forts, and of thoroughly training
ourselves for its pursuit,—of be
ing sure that we were fitting
"square pegs into square holes.”
With what result? Every day we
hear or read of the number of men
and women, who, in spite of thor
ough preparation for their work,
have nothing to do and no pros
pect of getting anything,—who are
polished pegs who can find neither
round or square holes into which
they can fit themselves. Tell us,
| what is the use of going to school
any more ?
It may be that an improvement
in the general weirare or tne coun
try, (I will not risk my neck by
saying, “a return of prosperity”),
will eventually restore to us our
faith in our educational bootstraps,
as it may restore to the troubled
hearts of some people their faith
in our economic system generally.
I have no way of knowing whether
such an eventuality is probable or
desirable. Even Technocracy has
not saved us yet, if we except
those few forward-looking students
who have adopted the principle of
the two-hour day and the five-day
week. Eventually, unless our so
ciety slips into a permanent retro
gression, we will have need of men
and women with fine cultural per
ceptions and of highly trained abil
* * 'Jfi
But the immediate future is our
vivid distress. There does not
seem to be much consolation in an
answer that says to these stu
dents’ questions, ‘‘Wait five years.
Maybe you'll be getting on better
What answer should be given to
their question ? I am not ready to

Opposing Dr. Smith
To the Editor of the Emerald:
Sir: As a student interested in
the later development of the
question of Philippine indepen
dence, I read with a great deal
of gusto the gloomy outlook of an
independent Philippine common
wealth which Dr. Warren D.
Smith has pictured through the
columns of a Eugene paper. I
have a great respect for the abil
ity of the professor, and have no
doubts of his sincerity, but I re
gret that I cannot share whole
heartedly with the position he as
sumes. That the law was not con
ceived of the spirit of altruism, I
need not recount. It is with re
grets that these selfish economic
interests were involved, but I de
light in the fact that these so
called “selfish" interests have
made it possible the fulfillment of
a "pledge," nobly conceived and
nobly given by the American
people to the people of the Philip
May I say with emphasis that
the universal desire of the Fili
pinos for liberty is not borne of
any ingratitude to the benevolence!
of the people of the United States.,
Rather, it is the logical conclu
sion of the liberay territorial pol-!
icy which the United States lias
pursued. The people of the Philip-i
pines would be untrue to the hope
reposed upon them by the people]
of the United States if they did
not aspire for the boon which is
the gift to all liberty-loving
I am not unaware of the eco
nomic and political hazards that
an independent Philippine com
monwealth has to encounter. They
are multitudinous and are of the
first magnitude, but hazardous as
tha venture may seem to be, it is
my conviction that the American
people, nay more, the Filipino
the political bonds which has kept
them together for the last 3t
years shall be completely severed.
By the enactment of the Philip
pine independence bill into law. the
United States has fulfilled a prom
ise solemnly made, and means the
satisfaction of the highest national
aspiration of the Filipino people.
It remove:- the un- ertaiitty with!
its benumbing effects upon our
economic progress. It will place
the instruments of our economic
salvation in «our hands. It will
make for a better orientation in
our social and economic develop
ment, for it will enable us to have
a definite type of citizenship
which are denied to us under a de
pendent state. It will release our
intellectual and spiritual powers
for creative achievement.
Time and space does not allow
a discussion of the economic and
international complication of the
subject. Suffice it to say that
there need not be no fear in these
matters. The Philippines, in the
opinion of many individuals, is not
any more secure as a dependency
of the United States than as an in
dependent natoin. Furthermore, to
wait until the Orient will have be
come stable may be waiting a
hundred years from now. A Japan
ese “menace” may be disposed of
as a “bugaboo,” a “scarecrow”
formulated by Wall Street to de
feat any independence concession.
The present economic and social
progress of the Philippines during
the past three decades has aroused
favorable comments even among
critical observers. The Philippines
has a balanced budget, a low
bonded indebtedness, and adequate
transportation system, a good sys
tem of education, etc., and it is
reasonable to assume that the sta
bility of the government can be
maintained even in the early and
trying moments of an independent
existence. The Filipinos may be
forced to forego some of their
present privileges, but that will
only be temporary. Furthermore,
a sacrifice of that character is,
and always will be a concommitam
result of liberty.
I reiterate to say that there is
no more opportune moment for the
granting of Philippine indepen
dence than the present. To have
waited longer would have meant
exclusion or limitation of Philip
pine products coming into the
United States, the presence of the
American flag over Philippine soil
notwithstanding. That would not
have been fair: nay more, it would
have defeated the very policy
enunciated by President McKinley
that “the Philippines are ours 50!
to exploit, but to develop. . . .'*
say, even at the risk of putting
myself in that well-known class of
persons who can raise more ques
tions than a wise man can answer.
This much might be said, however:
A re-evaluation of our university
education would seem to be a prob
lem for our best thinking and dis
cussion. It has been a few years,
at least, since students and facul
ty on the campus have set down to
make such an estimate; and no
such effort has been tried since
the depression has forced a new
estimate of our earlier viws. In
times when money is dear, talk is
still cheap, and purposive exchange
of ideas may be still invaluable. Is
it possible that some plan for a
full conference or discussion over
this problem on the campus might
bring to the students a surer sense
of the use of education in strength
ening us to meet just such condi
tions as we now face, and that jt
might give both students and fac
ulty less of a feeling of frustration
and more of an attitude of ulti
mate direction than that which
now seems, in the minds of some,
to be abroad?
