Dunne T> EPRINTED in these editorial columns today under the heading, Political Comedy, is an article entitled, “Go to College in Oregon" by Joe E. Dunne, Republican candidate for governor of the state of Oregon. The article originally appeared in “College Vogue," an advertising booklet “dedicated to the students of the state of Oregon in the hope that” it might “influence Oregon students to attend Ore gon’s institutions of higher learning.” “College Vogue,” if the reader does not recall, Was mailed to almost every eligible university and college student in the state during the tatter part of the past summer. It. was a private business ven ture. Although the booklet was supposed to induce Oregon students to enter Oregon institutions, ALL Oregon institutions, the reading matter in its en tirety was devoted to the University and state col lege, with heavy emphasis on the University. In pictures the University dominated, nine to four, over the state college, while Eugene adver tisers only contributed one-half page more adver tising than did the Corvallis merchants. But enough for the partiality of "College Vogue" to the institutions of higher learning. The publica tion was perhaps unfair to the remaining candidates for governor. They, too, should have been allowed Space. Mr. Dunne’s message is a farce throughout. The Emerald finds not a word concerning' the educational benefits of Oregon’s schools. Mr. Pnnne assumes that education is a huge machine turning young men and women out into the business world and supplying the "pull” necessary for success. It is apparent that Mr. Dunne believes that stu dents should learn to acquire “the almighty dollar" at Oregon's institutions of higher learning. Yet these same institutions were originally established as places where youth might pursue knowledge and seek the truth. It is not the policy of the Emerald to condemn any candidate for governor. The Emerald, how ever, questions whether Oregon wants a governor who obviously places an exclusively monetary value on higher education. Open Season /~\NCE more open season has been declared on ^ all Emerald workers. With the exception of the athletic teams, no student activity on the cam pus is tlie object of criticism to a greater extent than the Emerald work. Even the football team does not "merit" as much classroom attention as does the reportorial and copyreading staff of the paper. Erom time to time, as has been the custom in the past, various instructors will devote a portion ol the class hour to sarcastic comments regarding this paper, hoping, no doubt, to redden the ears of any members of his class so rash as to work on the Emerald. Technique varies among the faculty. Sonic supply some ground work to make the criti cism seem pertinent to the subject taught. Others use no such pretense, but give their opinion of the Emerald in addition to the regular lecture at no extra charge. We do not wish to discourage this practice. True, it may be somewhat embanasslng, even heart breaking, to some of our staff members. But in the long run it becomes a factor in the moulding of a newspaper man. Your comments today may help the Emerald worker to smile in years to come when the angry reader charges into the newspaper office to horsewhip him. Rotariun Sproul OBERT G. SPROUL, president of the Univor •*-*- shy of California, discusses radicalism in uni versities in the October issue of the Rotariun in an article that is thoroughly conservative and there fore tending toward the idealism so often found on ; the extreme right or left. The article smacks of the Tuesday noon lunch, eon, and indeed is based on an address made by Dr. 1 Sproul at a Los Angeles Rotary meeting. We are i concerned with the idealistic picture of a university given by Dr. Sproul. He says: “First let me tell you just a little about the nature of a university. Set at the heart of our cul tural life, it must enjoy, undisturbed by the clamor of the market place, that serene detachment which alone can guarantee clarity of judgment and intelli gent decision." “That serene detachment” is unfortunately not enjoyed by the great majority of our colleges. Dr. Sproul says that the universities must “teach stu dents to re-appraise old values.” This is, to a cer tain extent, achieved. If the schools also were "undisturbed by the clamor of the market place,” radicalism might find fewer converts in college stu dents. But what materials are available for the student for his new appraisal ? Is he allowed to obtain a serene and broad view of his problem ? He is not. The various forms of legislation in his state consti tute a constant, threat to the very life of his alma mater. He is denied upper division standing unless he is trained in the gory art of killing his fellow men or put through an ordeal to become exempt. A university’s virtues tend to give the student an open mind. It is the evils of a school, inflicted upon it by flaws in our social structure, which warp this open-mindedness to skepticism or radicalism. The Sunday War FTER a month of ballyhoo, Portland’s two Sun day papers came to the hands of their readers two weeks ago in their “new and greater,” and “bigger and better" form. With the second issues of these two bulks of paper pulp the beginning of this week, it appears that they are here to stay. Last month both papers came out simultane ously with the announcement that their Sunday editions were being completely revised. New type faces, new features, more comics, and a thousand and one other novelties would be added to their al ready “big” Sunday papers. No one knows which paper acquired the idea first. It is generally thought, however, that both tried to follow the footsteps of the third Portland daily, which recently included in one of its editions, a moving picture weekly, at no extra cost to the reader. What a shock the Sunday paper reader got when he tiptoed out on the front porch Sunday before last, to be greeted by one or the other “great” news paper. One’s front page had a wanted-for-murder builetin type face employed in its headlines. It contained page after page of the same aged Sunday paper reading matter, but very little advertising. The other kept its same conservative makeup, but expanded with more Sunday feature material. It, however, increased its advertising lineage. Both were filled with “tripe.’’ While the Sunday war rages between the Hose City’s two “great” newspapers, the reading public must suffer. It musts thumb through pages and pages of printed matter to find things worth read ing, and at the same time pay an increased sub scription rate to defray the costs of the Sunday war. God help the people who confine their reading to the Sunday newspaper. We were munching a hamburger at a lunch counter the other evening and trying to listen to President Roosevelt’s speech, wren a waitress came up, tried to tune the radio to some dance music, and ihen turned the set off with the remark: “Some guy is talkin’ on all of ’em (stations). Oregon won the toss and kicked, Walker sending the ball to McOhesney, who fumbled but recovered on U.C.L.A. 26-yard line. Livesay nibbled half a yard through the line and Key followed with a sparkling 2-yard zip around left end to put the ball on the 48-yard line. Bertz in the Journal.

DUNNE \ LL thing's being- equal, every young Oregonian ^ *■ should find the schools of Oregon best fitted to take care of his needs. First, he will find those Who went to the junior schools sharing with him the privileges and companionships, and the aspira tions and ambitions of the higher schools of learn ing. He will not need an introduction as a stranger coming into a new country, a foreigner as it were. He will find entree to all the activities, find helpful companionship in all ambitions, and a genuine west ern friendliness that will stand him well in his prog less through college. But the one vital factor which stands out as the greatest need for all young men and women is the fact that when they complete their school life and find themselves out in the business world, if they have spent their school life here among their com panions, they have friends in every corner to aid them in business contact and make the road b' success that much easier. Embarking in business life after graduation is almost like a baby learning to walk. How proud we are to walk away with the sheep skin, but how disillusioned we soon become when we find barriers ind hindrances everywhere. To overcome these barriers and to reduce them [c a minimum, every young man and woman wtio graduates from his or her state's institution lias triends who may be of invaluable aid in making nismess and social contacts. All in all, if we think our problem through, 1 rvould say to every young man and woman about o enter college, "Go to school in your own state 1 md live in ihe atmosphere in which you will have i o do business when you graduate. Strengthen the deal, of your own life through tlie social contact J d your own people. Live in the western spirit.] iere you will find freedom of thought and have j ui opportunity for the realization of your ;uubi ions." stay in Oregon because Oregon's schools rate j uth any in the country. Her faculties ate equal o any. Start to think! Your friends live in Oregon, •our business will be in Oregon, you will soon pay axes in Oregon. If you want to cash in on your college life in a >ig way, go to an Oregon school to prepare to serve | Jregon people.—College Vogue. : Americana By ED HANSON The Old Twelfth Street Stile By FREDERIC S. DUNN Just to philosophize a bit, with out much wisdom behind it,—the Rail Splitter as such would he mi nus a job today. But if that lanky unkempt figure had been about town in the late seventies, he could have hired himself out to the re gents for quite a sum in putting up the board fence about the cam pus. It looked miles long,—that board fence. Its whiteness seemed to blend into space, it encompassed such a vastness. And, in that im mensity, but one brick pile, which Matthew P. Deady, autocrat, had consented to have named in his honor. With few dwellings inter vening, and Eugene's beautiful ma ples not yet even in the seed, and acre upon acre of farm and pas ture on all sides, the University was an awesome landmark for leagues in all directions. When great droves of sheep and cattle and horses were driven down the Cascade passes into the valley and through the streets of the town, and clouds of dust rose up to Ihe meridian, it was then, of course, that property owners, by very compulsion, realized the ne cessity of fences. The gates, too, afforded an outlet for invention and artistic genius, but oil! how tempt ing to sub-freshmen on All Hal low E'en. They were so nice to swing up to the top of the flagpole or the limb of a tree or the roof of a house. But that campus fence served as a combination of uncontemplated purposes. At Commencements, when U. S. Senator John H. Mitch ell. or .1. Ham Lewis from Seattle, or Harvey Scott of The Oregonian, was the speaker, all the available space of fencing from all approach able sides would be lined with hacks and buggies and wagons j from all over the country. And then ,too, it gave one the ■ happiest sort of comfort to sit on the slanting top board, until its narrowness became too pinching for amplitude of anatomy. There was an indescribable sense of com panionship, when six or a dozen of us were lined up in a row, atop the fence, waiting for the next class. But the famed spot in the great perimeter was the stile, the state entrance at the end of Twelfth, the one approach to Deady. Straight down from the west door, in the exact center of the street, (or of the arc now formed by the curved concrete walks), was this historic rendezvous, where we (masc, nom., plu.) would bunch and ‘talk about the weather,’—and some other top ics, some rather miscellaneous. j Here too was our athletic rodeo, I .the broad jump from off the end ! of the walk, the whole- or half-ham mond, and leap frog. There was 1 usually enough moisture in the soil to make the landing receptive, sometimes pretty juicy. But,—they took down the old board fence when a city ordinance deflected the livestock and there was no 'longer need to protect the lawns. The first University day to develop out of the older Junior Ex hibition saw it cup into sidewalk lengths, and now it lives only in old lithographic cuts and in the memory of its former habitues.

You can't go much farther tonight, so why not come along and stay with us.” The invitation received an enthusiastic acceptance. After a drive of 17 kilometers we arrived at the home of my host. Reidar Jorgensen introduced first his wife and then his small daugh ter, Aud. A baby boy, Jan, was upstairs asleep. Norway is more democratic than England, France, Germany or any of the smaller European states I have yet been in. Still it is not so thoroughly democratic as the United States, and Jorgensen's stay of four years there had not Americanized him sufficiently • to permit the introduction of the hired girl. She was kept in the kitchen, ana made to “know her place.” Here in Norway they pour them into the casting ladle young, and keep them there. Tass, the pet Lapland pup, had strayed from home. I and his mas ter delayed supper long enough to make an unsuccessful search of the neighboring countryside. A clay or so later he turned up on a distant farm, and was restored in all his animated happiness to the family circle. After the evening meal at eight o’clock we adjourned to the living room. On the radio we obtained i a program of Norwegian music. One number “Notturne og Troll tog” by the composer, Grieg, fell like a spell. The pensive radiance and wistful joy, both of this com position and another of Grieg’s that followed gave me an interest in knowing more of the history of Norwegian music. The national anthem, “Song of Norway,” with its music by Nordraak and words by Bjornson impressed by its orig inality. There followed a short report of news from all over the world, then a dramatic sketch, and last some jazz music that set Aide to danc ing.

Well, all that we can say is that be there a man among you who can tie up the above with a radio column he is a better man than we are. Yesterday was our big day. Out first broadcast. We're quite proud of ourselves because two people phoned while we were on the air. The first, we were told by the stu dio secretary, was a man who sounded like he talked with a cigar in his month and his feet on the desk. He wanted to know who wras singing. Informed that it was the second Ethel Waters—Lou Parry—he refused to admit that he was a representative of a na tionally known firm traveling in cognito, seeking a radio star; but Lou still has hopes. When phone caller number two learned that it was one Lou Pany singing, accompanied by Maxine McDonald, she said: “But she isn't a local girl, is she?” Now how do you Eugene people feel about that ? Don’t you think we should track down the alleged lady and invoke due punishment? Such loyalty! But we really do think Lou is a nice singer. We have no complaint to make. Except one: yesterday during the broadcast, immediately following Miss Perry's interpreta tion of “I Hate Myself” we walks up to the mike to say well done me fair lassie or something. In the midst of the useless by euphonious phrases lumbering Lou manages to trip over a studio wire and land right smack into our arms. All of which would not have been such an unpleasant situation, it must be confessed, had we not the moment been so inopportune. For after we had made some quaint crack about Lou lightly tripping about the stu dio we forgot what we were say ing, and we had to mumble some now forgotten nothing about a whumpa whumpa being very whoompa whoompa.
