And Student Display
SEVENTEEN years ago this next Monday the
United States was a vast playground. The
big, the little, the powerful and the meek dashed
about in a mad demonstration of joy joy that
the World War was over. The dominant motif
for such actions in the majority of hearts
throughout the nation was the close of the war
and final peace.
Next Monday a celebration of the signing of
the Armistice will include a parade through Eu
gene. There will be martial music, flags, uni
forms and dignitaries. There is one restriction.
No slogans shall be displayed by people taking
part in the parade. This order was issued by Con
Dillon, general chairman of the Armistice day
It looks as if much of the true spirit of the
Armistice day is being lost in an attempt to
make a mere military display. The Emerald be
lieves that such a public function as a parade
is no place for the flouting of controversial
governmental or moral beliefs.
Those organizations among the students
which persist in exploiting their beliefs about
“isms” of government in a public function of
this kind may be rightfully prohibited. An Ar
mistice day parade is not the place for this
sort of inborn publicity.
Yet if the student groups at the University
ask for the privilege of entering the parade, and
carrying placards denouncing war and glorifying
peace, they should be allowed to do so. Such dis
play Is really more in the spirit of the first
Armistice than is a hearty demonstration of
chauvanistic patriotism often accompanying
brass bands and khaki uniforms.
Mr. Dillon in arbitrarily determining just who
shall take part in this parade is no doubt sincere
and sensitive to his responsibility as chairman of ,
the occasion. But in this instance he is going too
far in suppressing what the Emerald believes to j
be a just “right” of students to express their !
views on war especially when the occasion for
that expression is -> well correlated with the in
tentions of the dents who dislike war-- and
incidentally fight th:m.
And Student Safety
"yrcSTERDAY morning students crossing Kin
caid street at the intersection of Thirteenth
were threatened with sudden destruction by a
large coupe coming down Kincaid miles an hour.
They took to the lifeboats and ran for the side
walk, while the coupe skidded to a stop. A split
second’s hesitation on the part of the driver of
that car and a human life might have been wiped
There is no place on this campus for brainless
fools who persist in using an automobile to scare
people. Some of the whoopee boys do things that
belong in high school. But the child that thinks
it’s funny to bully pedestrians with his automo
bile doesn't belong in high school. He belongs in
a padded cell.
A little co-operation from the student body
as a whole will soon eliminate these potential
murderers from our midst. Next time you see a
student come slamming up to an intersection that
is crowded with people, jot down the license
number of the car and send it to the Emerald.
Where reason or law enforcement fails, a little
adverse publicity is often very effective.
'T'HE name Sherwood Eddy has come to mean
A a clear, impartial and analytic interpretation
of world news and events. Since graduation from
Yale, in 1891, Eddy has traveled, studied, and
observed the history-in-the-making of the var
ious peoples and nations of the world.
He has come in close contact with the great
of the time statesmen and men who direct na
tional destinies; in India, Mahatma Gandhi; in
Japan, Kakawa; in Russia, Stalin; in Italy,
Mussolini; and in Germany, Hitler. And these
are but a few!
Eddy, a student and citizen of the world, he
might be called, has just returned from a study
tour of Russia, Poland, Germany, Austria,
France, and Great Britain. He has watched the
Leagjie of Nations at work, and has spent con
siderable time “figuring out” just how that vast
international organization ticks.
Nov/ he is touring the United States and shar
ing his information with the people of our
country. In his many books and in his lectures,
Eddy shows a “young" outlook, which was per
haps partly acquired through his long years of
association with students in various parts of
the world, in his capacity as a YMCA worker
Too seldom, during the course of a year, do
the students have the opportunity to have first
hand information of headline-making current
events, and what’s back of them, brought to
them. Today’s privilege of hearing Sherwood
Eddy should not be missed by a single student.

Music appeals directly to my
senses. It creates by subtle al
chemy a wondrous mood of con
centrated sensitivity. At times. I
feel an exhilerating tingling pul
sing through me. ley winds from
mighty glaciers blow across my
forehead, freeze my hands, curry
my hair and back with a comb of
icicles, search through my soul
and chi!! my heart. At time, t
bask and snuggle in mellow sun
light and smell again the spring
of youth. I look deep into the
depths of night and contemplate.
I stand tiptoe upon a mountain
top. I nuzzle my face into the
warm earth, our Mother. I live be
cause 1 feel.
I have visited the Carnegie lis- j
tening room but I have been
frightened away, for I dislike rude
a n d inconsiderate interruptions
when I listen to music. I have
gone to listen and I have discov
ered it to be a noisome place.
It is more than annoying to be
jarred by racuous, unnecessary
talk about some dance band in
town. 1 do not appreciate the hoof
beats of a roving gossip. I do not
like to have the tender tips of my
nerves rasped raw by the rustling
ot paper, in fact, it makes me
angry (I mean mad) and 1 am
forced to stay away.
1 can understand why a boiler
maker might not have any regards'
tor the feelings of a fellow worker
but I cannot eomprehend why a
student of music would be so un
feeling as to run roughshod and
senseless over my poor exposed
Does constant (or should 1 say
applied) contact with music make
any person so thick-skinned, so
backing in sensitiveness, so dull
that he does not perceive what

From “Colliers”: An interesting
item, which says that one of the
world’s strangest punishments for
murder is still practiced by several
African tribes. The only thing re
quired by this particular law of the
jungle is that a murderer produce
a life for the one he has taken.
Accordingly, the murderer must
live with the widow or sister of the
deceased until a child is born.
Thank heaven for civilization. If
the modern motorist were forced
to produce a birth certificate for
every murdered pedestrian, the
country would be too crowded to

The Kappa Sigma boys had a
barn dance last week-end. To lend
a note of realism to the thing, they
acquired chickens, pigs, etc. Also
After the dance the Kappa Sigs
went on a serenade. As soon as
the big brown house was deserted,
a couple of Sigma Nus sneaked
into the place and absconded with
the calf. Unfortunately, however,
a punitive expedition of Kappa Sigs
located the calf rustlers just before
they managed to get the little
beast into the Gamma Phi bar
racks. With practically no cere
mony, the larger group seized the
unfortunate Sigma Nus and tossed
them bodily into the icy chill of
the mill race, clothes and all.

This one is on Tony Lucas, Gam

were shipping cocoa in the Green
Parrot last night. Just at the mo
ment when Reum had half his face
submerged in cocoa, Tony raised
her voice and said, “Dick, did you
get your blankets back all right?’’
Before Reum could get his kisser
out of the cup the entire joint was
in an uproar.
Rumor has it that Reum was
trying to get aboard a southbound
freight at a late hour last night.
“That’s the last straw," he said.
“I’m going to Patagonia and start

Red Woolens New
Speaking of colors, if you want
to be listed with the ultra ultra
smart, the things to wear are the
practical new knitted sets. They
are wool and in a bright enough
red to make you warm by just
looking at them.
However, if you are a little du
bious about stepping directly into
red woolens, literally speaking of
course, there are some grand knit
ted cottons and woolens in more
conservative tints that are just
the thing for you.
It is said that fashions go in cy
cles and then repeat themselves.
Perhaps we are going back to the
days of sensible clothing. But one
does have to admit that there's
something about cold weather that
makes woolens, overcoats, and mit
tens mighty friendly.

the one I really care for?
How shall I handle this ? How do girls react to broken I
Dear S. R.
Yours is a touchy problem. However my advice is to explain |
to the girl here on the campus that you are expecting an out of j
town guest. If she is a girl you greatly admire I am sure she [
will understand the situation.
Perhaps it would be well to get the girl a date, that is if I
any other boy would take her.
Girls don't like broken dates any more than you do but in
this case let love win out.
Dear Dolores: j
Although I have taken my girl out several times, I have j
not yet been able to kiss her. Every time I get the opportunity
I lose my nerve. What shall I do?
N. T. D.
m Dear N. T. D.
Your problem seems to be
brought about by inexperience and
| not being sure of your own tech
nique. So I advise the following -
corrective measures. First go home V
and set a pillow on your davenport.
If you can kiss the pillow and still
remain outwardly calm, although
you may be seething inside you
j have sucessfully completed the _
| first step. Second, go down to the *—■/
| Seventh Street Formal and after /
i carefully examining the field, se- /
| lect one of the more promising- /
| looking damsels, and when you l
I take her home repeat your tech- V
niue just as you did with the pil
low. rr you re still outwardly calm, you are ready to attempt
to kiss the girl of your dreams. Be nonchalant, just remember
how you did with the pillow. Be firm, don’t let any small
attempt to repulse you keep you away from your motive.
You know your technique, just apply it. (Black eyes are
treated at the dispensary from 8 a. m. to 6 p. m.)
