The Oregon Daily Emerald, official student publication of the
University oi Oregon, Eugene, published daily during the college
year, exceot Sundays, Mondays, holidays, examination periods,
all of December and nil of March except the first three days.
Entered in the postoffice at Eugene, Oregon, as second-class
matter. Subscription rates, $2.50 a year.
CLOSED weekends. Examination schedules. Is
suance of new housing permits. Baseball
practice. Much talk about next year’s basketball
Sure signs, all of them, of the end of winter
term, traditionally the dullest of the year.
Dull, did we say? We beg your pardon. There
were a few events of interest, if we remember.
There was the vindication of Dean Wayne L. Morse.
There was the appointment of Oregon’s sixth presi
dent, Dr Clarence V. Boyer. There was the op
tional membership melee. There was the Battle
over Beer. There was the Tiff over the Triad.
There was the Military Muddle. There was the
amendment fiasco and the Bedsheet Ballot.
We could go on enlarging the theme in allitera
tive fashion for some time, but Managing Editor
Saslavsky has done the job for us, in a compre
hensive account of the term's great events on this
pago. The list will astonish by its scope and va
riety. It was a term crowded with suspense, tri
umphs and disappointments; a season significant
in the history of the University of Oregon.
With this issue the Emerald suspends publica
tion for four weeks, and hopes for another season
as lively and stimulating as the quarter now ending.
Until April 3, goodbye—and happy holidays!
HURRAY FOR OUR SIDE! ! !
HEN Oregon knocked over Oregon State last
▼ * night by it healthy margin of 33-25, it made
certain of doing no worse than a tie for second
place in the northwest division. And, what may be
more important, clinched its share of the annual
lour-game duel with the Staters.
We've already handed Bill Reinhart two orchids
for his fine comeback this year, building a powerful
squad from the wrecage of last year. And for last
night's performance he deserves the whole bouquet.
The team goes to Corvallis tonight to round out
a great season with the Beavers on their own floor.
If we win if will be the second great sport achieve
ment of the year, following on the heels of an un
commonly good football season.
So fling your notebook in the waste basket to
night, let your term paper cool off, and leave your
cramming until the last night before exams, and
go with the team to help them wind up a big year
FIVE STUDENT TYI’ES
\ NALYZ1NG college students has become a
*• popular pastime for critics of higher educa
tion, and with their findings one group attacks the
methods of educating, and another attacks the
numbers being educated. As good a classification
of students as we've yet heard was expressed dur
ing an informal talk by Dean Wayne Morse, of the
law school, the other evening.
Five types of students enter the halls of learn
ing, points out Dean Morse. The first type includes
the student who is just plain indifferent. He goes
to college without knowing just why; his folks foot
the bill. He seldom questions what his professors
put forth, though economic fears may prompt these
dispensers of learning to withhold the obvious if i’
seems a bit daring-. He gets his degree and becomes
one of the millions.
The constitutional conservative falls into the
second group. He finds comfort in the status quo;
why should he argue and dream and plan and strive
for change? The here and now is its own defense
and justification. This group is quite often well
versed in history or literature, but dynamic con
clusions are not in the nature of its members.
Third in the list is the hedonist, unconsciously
so, for he does not know hedonism is a philosophy.
He knows “pleasure and pain” as the leading mo
tives of life, he seeks the one and avoids the other.
He it is who gives the administration occasional
trouble and must be reprimanded or sent to an
Fourth group is the idealist and crusader. He
is the most forceful of college students. He is the
leader of leagues and protest movements; he em
braces the cause of fre dom jand justice. He is
never at rest, and no idet 1 is too impractical for his
And lastly, there is the critical realist. He is
the doubter and skeptic, the eternal asker of ques
tions. He is the "why” student. He has the cour
age to disagree, the energy and mental discipline
necessary for practical affairs. He knows how to
use the intellectual tools necessary in any directed
attack on the social problems of the day. Too
often, however, he lacks initiative, purpose, the
drive that gets things done.
Out of this deficiency comes the suggestion of
the union of the last two groups, the critical realist
and the idealist or crusader. To hold the idealist
down to the practical is the task of the realist; to
give purpose to the realist, that of the idealist.
With any group successfully uniting these two emi
nently useful types of student, it is possible to pro
duce surprising results in fields of practical social
and political activity.
IS NOTHING SACRED?

Of Scottish youth in modern day . . .
Sir Walter Scott, “Lady of the Lake.”
WE see by the Emerald that Pi Mu Alpha, music
honorary, Will conduct a “smoker” in the
music building, the entertainment for which will
consist of musical selections.
It has been pretty generally understood that we
men have been on the decline, but we didn’t think
it had gone this far.
The term “smoker” has always been associated
with a smoke-filled hall where he-men could puff
on cigars while watching sweaty athletes propound
the manly arts of fisticuffs and wrestling in the
It is one of the last of our havens of masculine
complacency, one of the last frontiers of the proud
male, across which the woman, flushed with the
heat of battle and victory in other fields, has not
And now what do we have ? A "smoker” in a
music building, listening to shaggy-haired maes
troes making a sucker out of Beethoven and
Brahms! It’s a dashed insult, that’s what it is.
We call upon all men among men to rise and do
battle to this desecration of our last holy of holies.
The smoker and the locker room are the only re
maining sanctuaries of he-manhood. Are we to
stand by and see them torn down and dispersed
among the infidels, going the way of the rest of
our institutions, the cigarette, the polls, and the
barber shop ?
Confound it, gentlemen, is nothing sacred?
Space forbids publication in this final issue of
the Emerald of on article in the New York Times
of Sunday, February 25, pertaining to higher edu
cation in Oregon. It is a letter from Charles D.
Byrne, director of information for the Oregon sys
tem of higher education, setting the Times aright
on a recent article by Wallace S. Wharton describ
ing recent educational activities involving Chancel
lor Kerr, the state board of higher education, and
Dean Wayne L. Morse. Wharton's article, which
was reprinted in the Emerald of February 15, is
according to Byrne, “replete with inaccuracies.”
On Other Campuses
Klchi's in Private Hands
TJELIEVING that “riches in private hands often
-spell ruin for coming generations" Drs. Wil
liam J. and Charles H. Mayo, surgeons, gave $500,
000 last week to the University of Minnesota to be
used for the promotion of medical science.
The case stands out in direct contrast to most
of the persons in possession of large sums of cap
ttal. For the most part, they will leave the bulk
of their gains for the seednd generation to squander.
National inheritance tax measures of a drastic
nature should be taken to prevent the inheritance
of millions of dollars by persons who have had no
part in the earning of the money.
The capitalistic system has failed and it is now
time that some action be taken to control the mil
lions of dollars that could be spent for educational
and other beneficial causes. Control of the major
part of inheritance is one of the best ways to bene
lit humanity. There is no sane reason for a person
receiving millions of dollars of unearned capital
! just because he happens to be the son of a mil
It is encouraging to see that there are some
persons of wealth who recognize the uselessness of
trying to leave a path of ease and luxury for their
sons and daughters who, more likely than not, will
be more harmed than benefited by the money.

Winter Term in Retrospect
By JOSEPH SASLAVSKY
(Emerald Managing Editor)
SELECTION of a new president
^ for the University, cancellation
of charges of “insubordination”
against Dean Morse, maintenance
of R. O. T. C. work on the campus
on an optional basis, well-attended
concerts presented by R o 1 an d
Hayes and the Eugene Gleemen,
CWA relief work for nearly 200
students, a farcical election with
the watchword of “vote for the
first six,” the sixteenth annual
Oregon press conference, ban of
the Miami Triad dance, rejection
of a demand for optional member
ship in the A. S. U. O., the rise
of an aggressive basketball team—
these are among the outstanding
events of the term, as chronicled
by the Emerald, which suspends
publication for this quarter today.
An imposing list of speakers ap
peared on the campus. They in
eluded Chester Rowell, editor of
the San Francisco Chronicle; Whit
ing Williams, well-known lecturer,
who scored the Russian govern
ment; and a group of lecturers
who presented the annual love and
marriage series and the sequence
offered by the Committee on Free
Two outstanding men have yet
1 to appear on the campus. They
are C. Grant LaFarge, noted ar
chitect, who will speak today, and
Oswald Garrison Villard, long
known as the fearless editor of a
fearless magazine, the Nation, who
will speak next Tuesday.
The University was again suc
cessful in sending a candidate to
England under the Rhodes schol
arship. Robert Hayter, who grad
uated from the University last
june and is now enrolled in the
University of Oregon medical
school in Portland, Will study at
Oxford during the coming three
The A. S. IJ. O. presented a se
ries of musical treats attended by
appreciative persons and others
who may have acquired a taste for
them by this time. The Univer
sity band appeared twice, the or
chestra once, and the Hayes and
Gleemen concerts were included in
the musical program. Frances
Brockman appeared as soloist with
the orchestra, while Howard Hal
bert, instructor in violin, was pre
sented as soloist with the Port
land Symphony orchestra under |
the direction of Willem VanHoog-[
Faculty members of the Univer- j
sity received nationwide attention
during the term. O. F. Stafford,
head of the chemistry department,
broke into national headlines on;
three occasions, with his work on
"heavy water," his discovery that
acetamide is the greatest known
solvent, and his invention of what
is believed to be the cheapest pos- j
sible method of obtaining charcoal
from wood waste. I
Robert H. Seashore, associate
professor of psychology, and his
graduate assistant, Raymond
Adams, in a series of psychologi
cal tests, found that University R.
O. T. C. riflemen exceed other
groups of students in muscular
coordination. This finding may
possibly lead to an economical
method of selected sharpshooters
for the army.
Joseph W. Angell, graduate as
sistant in the English department,
developed in his research work
the fact that Matthew Arnold had
borrowed many of his ideas from
the Frenchman,, Ernest Renan. An
article by Angell dealing with his
findings will make a July appear
ance in an internationally-known
French literary journal.
Ernest G. Moll, assistant profes
sor of English, is the author of a
favorably received book dealing
with the appreciation of poetry.
Other faculty members were
honored with selection on groups
functioning on a national basis.
The ubiquitous Oregon traditions
broke into the headlines during
the term, as they commonly are in
the habit of doing. A new court
was established by Student Presi
dent Tom Tongue and soon after
wards brought upon itself the
wrath of many Oregon coeds who
resented a suggestion of the court
that their house presidents serve
as Emily Posts in the matter of
high heels, earrings, and smoking
on the campus.
The drama department was ex
traordinarily busy with several
ope-act plays and two major pro
ductions, "Gods of the Mountain”
and "Cradle Song."
The usual lineup of wintea term
social activities was offered—
Krazy Kopy Krawl, Senior Ball,
Beaux Arts Ball, Coed Capers,
VVhiskerino Shuffle, Masked Ball,
and the annual Matrix Table ban
quet, given annually by Theta Sig
ma Phi, women's national journal

cluded the reestablishment of a
Webfoot swimming team, which

Among the other highlights of
the term were the installation of
the Delta Upsilon chapter on the
campus, improvement of the pul
chritude of various buildings on
the campus, faculty offer of un

er, a survey showing' that sorori- j
ties pay more for meals than .do
fraternities, a serio-comic petition 1
presented by cadet officers against
the optional R._ O. T. C., the fuss
over beer, protest against the Mi

pressions of sincere regret at the
passing of Secretary of State Hal

R. O. T. C. courses, faculty dinner

The scene of this drama is
laid, gently, on the Theta Chi
sleeping porch. As the curtain
rises, we see Winston Allard
come sleepily out on the porch.
He gazes at a bed usually occu
pied by a pledge. Suddenly his
eyes widen. There is a form on
the bed, swathed in covers. Not
the large masculine form of the
pledge, but a small form, like
that of a six or seven year old
boy. It is breathing heavily.
Allard approaches cautiously
and peels back the covers. And

you have—it is Kummel, the

We want to report the settling
of a problem of major importance.
For a long time a number of the
great brains on the campus have
been doing some Grade A concen
trating, attempting to select a
suitable name for A1 Wall's newly
formed band. The aggregation
was awfully good and they wanted
to do it justice. We ourselves at
tempted to help. Our prize sug
gestion was “Wall's Walleyed
Wallflowers.” This didn’t seem to
set so well with Al. as a matter
of fact, it took a couple of strong
armed friends to keep him from
wrecking an expensive guitar on
us. At last, however, the matter
has been settled. Al himself
has selected “Al Wall's College
Knights.’’ Personally, we think it
has more allure if you leave out
“I'm not tight—just playful!”
