MIKULAKS IN MINIATURE
■JUST as Babe Ruth has become the idol of mil
** lions of 12 and 14 year old sandlot baseball
players, so Mike Mikulak, Oregon's all-American
fullback candidate, seems slated to become the
paragon of football virtue to gmall-boy footballers
of the Northwest.
For now the kids are naming teams after Ore
gon’s own Iron Mike! A fan writes from Aber
deen, Washington, that a midget team has chris
tened itself the “Muilin Mikulaks” and is doing its
share in southwestern Washington to spread the
name and fame of Oregon’s juggernaut.
To be the idol of the sandlotters is a glory that
comes to few athletes, but the bestowal of this
honor carries with it obligations that are not to be
taken lightly. From now on Mike Mikulak is a
marked man. Throughout every Oregon game the
Muilin Mikulaks and thousands of other midget
pigskin artists will be hanging over the radio, and
they'll tear their lungs loose when the announcer
cries: “Mikulak has the ball lie’s away —five —
They’ll be expecting Mike to crash through for
at least three touchdowns in every game. And any
kid that says Warburton is a better man will get
his face punched.
Maybe the miniature Mikulaks were disap
pointed when the mighty, man-crushing fullback
didn’t ram his way to a touchdown against U. C.
L. A. But there is no faith like that compared
with tiie abject hero-worship of the American ado
lescent, and they know that Iron Mike is going
to make hash of Oregon State’s much publicized
It’s up to you, Mike. You wouldn’t disappoint
a good gang of guys like the Muilin Mikulaks
would you ?
A PLANNED CAMPUS
ONCE upon a time there was a plan developer!
for future construction on the Oregon campus.
It was laid on: at the time of President Prince L.
Campbell's statewide gift campaign, and it pro
posed a development that would eventually give
Oregon one of the most beautiful campuses it? the
Now the administrative sages are pulling their
beards over the problem of locating our new
library, if and when the public works administra
tion grants permission to build. We have the op
portunity to make the new library a logical unit
in a well-proportioned, balanced campus plan; but
in hastening to a rapid decision the planners are
apt to make a bad choice and commit an irrep
One of the dtes mentioned is on Thirteenth
street, facing north, between the museum of art
and Johnson hall. The other is near the southern
extreme of the campus near tne education build
ing. The Emerald believes that the latter location
is the one which should be selected.
Locating the building on Thirteenth street
would fill a gap m the campus which, to the super-'
ficial observer, seems should be fitted with a build
ihg of some sort or other. But the campus plan
ners should remember that some day the Univer
sity hopes to see Thirteenth street closed in the
interest of a unified campus, and the area trans
formed into lawns and pathways.
The southern location is the one which accords
best with the years-old campus plan. It would
form the center of interest in a broad, green-lawned
mall, and would offer rare opportunities for effec

in order that the plans for the new building, al
ready unaccountably delayed, may be speeded tc
completion. But already hasty and ill-considered
decisions have resulted in too many instances of
buildings plumped into the campus without regard
to architectural style or harmony of the entire ar
rangement. Let us not perpetuate this policy by a
hasty short-sighted decision on the site of the new
THAT BALLY TKAIN AGAIN
TJETITIONS were circulated last night in several
-*• fraternity houses in an attempt to persuade the
graduate manager’s office to make a last-minute
switch in plans for the much discussed rally train
now scheduled to leave here on Saturday, Novem
ber 11, at 8 a. m.
The wording of t'.n petition is simple, providing
that men students be permitted to leave Eugene
on any regular train after Friday noon, and per
haps the originators, v ho are at present unknown
to the Emerald, had no idea of upsetting any care
fully laid plans, but the change would bring several
In the first place, Oregon's yell leader, with
well-developed plans for the “best rally Oregon has
ever seen,”^ would find it impossible to gather his
loyal supporters together if they were arriving at
various times on different trains. In a town as
large as Portland, students arriving on Friday night
would find it hard to gather for a rally Saturday
Even graduate managers and railway compa
nies have a limit beyond which their patience will
not stretch. Having originally made an arrange
ment with the railway company whereby the train
would leave here Saturday morning and return Sat
urday night, the graduate manager’s office, answer
ing a wave of student opinion, arranged to permit
the students to return on any train Saturday or
Sunday. If there was to be any other dissatisfac
tion it should have been expressed at that time.
The graduate manager has said that there were
perhaps “insurmountable barriers” in the way of
any change in plans at the present time. It is
probable that the same low rate could not be ob
tained if the plans were again changed. However,
the prime reason for allowing matters to stand as
they are is the possibility of a far greater rally
than could be hoped for under other conditions.
Whatever student group is backing this move
should drop it, in the interests of developing a max
imum of enthusiasm at a crucial period in Oregon’s
coast championship campaign.
ONE OF TWENTV-FIVE
OREGON'S football squad is still among the
elite of the American gridiron. Prince Gary
Callison’s warriors maintained their record of being
neither beaten nor tied by winning Saturday from
the University of California at Los Angeles team
in the south.
Publicity and praise are the lot of the victorious
football machine, and it is many years since Ore
gon has had such a successful season as it is en
joying this year. Twenty-four other squads through
out the United States have compiled a not-beaten
not-tied record, and not many of these teams are
of major league caliber.
A tribute is due Prink Callison. and his team of
hard-driving veterans for their better spirit and
HOW TO WIN AN ELECTION
IT will be pretty hard for the German voter to
go wrong (?) when he goes to the polls (?)
on November 12 for the Reichstag election.
Here’s what his ballot will look like: There will
be one circle at the top of the ballot, that of the
Nazi party. All other parties have been dissolved
by law, and woe be unto the founders of new ones.
All the German citizen has to do is to mark an
X in the Nazi circle, thereby voting for HiLler and
his merry men. Any other marking of the ballot
automatically disqualifies the vote. Whose idea?
Oh, a talented young man called Hitler.
There is, however, another possibility for the
German to express his desires. He is privileged to
say yes or no, whether or not he approves of Hitler
and his actions since taking office m March. Since
the elections officials will disqualify every ballot
marked wrongly on another point, it is logical that
they will do a little juggling along this line also.
It is almost incredible that an intelligent nation
can be so thoroughly hoodwinked, so completely
molded into submission by some clever showman
ship and less clever propaganda, discharged whole
sale by a puppet press. If this be so, it is a signal
tribute to the power of the press, a questionable
compliment to the journalistic profession, but an
irrevocable insult to human intelligence.
A LIBERAL EDUCATION
(CIITHAT should be more practical than a lib
eral education?” queries William A. Shinier
in the American Scholar. Mr. Shinier holds, with
a great many other educators, that the aim of a
university is to give a student an insight into life
rather than to teach him the key to amassing
wealth or securing the so-called practical “success.”
It is unfortunate that the depth of Mr. Shimer’s
observation must pass far over the heads of both
students and educators in our American institu
tion. It is certainly obvious, however, that univer
sities as they are now existent in this country, fail
miserably to approach even their own self-ordained
ends, that of teaching the paths of material suc
cess. Such things as making money and other of
the pragmatic pursuits can be learned far better
in six months of practical experience than in a
four-year college course, and as for the technical
vocations, their place lies not in tiie university but
rather in the college and school.
For the person, who either through necessity
or by his own liking, must devote his life to the
pursuit of the material, let him attend the business,
technological, or training school, but don't send him
to an intellectual center, for not only is he out of
place but he cripples immensely the effectiveness
of the university as a stimulant to those students
who are actively and alertly mentally inclined.
The American university is no longer a univer
sity. It is a sad strange mixture of a training
school for the sons and daughters of people who:
have enough money to send them, with here and
there a true educational streak uncovered The
phenomenon of American education well merits the
cry, "Oh. education, what sins arc committced in

The Safety Valve
To the Editor:
The faculty of the University of
Oregon recently made a written
plea urging President Roosevelt to
relax immigration laws in order to
provide asylum for Nazi victims.
(Roscoe C. Nelson, in spite of his
misleading name, a Jew, newly
elect'd chairman of the Oregon
state board of higher education,
will cheer bravo professors, as he
appears on the campus Thursday.)
Senate investigations have dis
closed that Wall Street financiers
(Jews) have evaded income tax
payment the last several years,
accordingly, an open door for Ger
man refugees would seem only a
trivial matter, with such splendid
help as a unanimous recommen
dation by the University of Ore
gon Chapter, American Associa
tion of University Professors, and
j signed by such eminents as Wayne
j L. Morse, president (dean, school
i of law), and Harold J. Noble, sec
retary (associate professor of his
tory). The faculty acted accord

To the Editor:
I am in receipt of a copy of the
"Dad’s Day Edition” of your pub
lication addressed to me as “Mr.
O. P. Kingsley.” Ergo, it would
appear that I have been relegated
to the position of the mere husband
of my wife, Opal Phelps Kingsley,
in your files.
Now I yield to no man in my re
spect and admiration for that es
timable lady, and it may well be
that the tables are so turned in
our family that it is meet that I
should be thus addressed, but it is
not without qualmishness of the
ego I contemplate the fact that at
my ol' alma mammy I am no long
er accorded the right to my own
first name, which name is distinc
tive if I am not.
Incidentally, the name of the as
sociation, “Oregon Dads,” repels
me. In my distant youth I fished
for craw-dads with a piece of fat
meat on a string. Of late years, in
fiction and song, on screen and
radio, sweet daddy’s have come in
for much uncomplimentary refer
ence. To me the good old English
word “father” is preferable for de
noting the male parent. It is time
honored, as witness Proverbs X:l,
where Solomon said, “A wise son
maketh a glad father.” Then, too,
it savors of a vestige of respect, a
thing dear to such an one as I,
now become but Mrs. Kingsley’s
husband. Yours truly,
Mr. O. P. (Sylvanus) Kinsley

Purses do have style, but we
very seldom think about it. One
purse for scnool, and two little
fancy ones for formal wear seem
to be the maximum of purse
equipment to most of us. Well, to
be very smart, your everyday purse
would be long and flat, fashioned
from a genuine leather, and in
itialed in plain solid letters.
For your formal functions,
where some type of carry-all is
necessary,—a fabric bag fash
ioned from the same material as
your gown is “par excellence.” The
flashier, rhinestone bags are slow
ly receding into the old-fashioned
regime, whereas the more quietly
brocaded and cloth pouches are
coming forward in style trends.
However, little clips of rhine
stones are unique and fashionable
if attached to the point of closing.
Another thing; evening bags have
a tendency now of being absolute
ly “lose-proof.” Little composi
tion or bone handles are placed on
the more expensive models, which
is a practical idea, it seems to me.
And clips for your hair! You
must have them—preferably at the
sides of the head. Perhaps you
have seen the star-shaped ones,
brilliantly jeweled with rhine
stones and synthetic emeralds, ru
bies, and sapphires. If you do wear
these hair clips, be sure to match
them on your gown someplace.
