Best to Hold Fire
On 'Rush Week' Plans
IN this column yesterday morning the Emerald
^ came out with an endorsement of the plan
offered at the last session of the interfraternity
council for eliminating the abuses of "rush week.”
Perhaps this note of approval has been a
little hasty, but the state of affairs in interfra
ternity govenment calls for positive action and
the Emerald has approved this plan as the only
one in sight that offers the least hope of pre
venting the "rushing” evils which this year shook
fraternal relation* to their foundations.
* * *
The points of excellence in the plan far out
weigh its faults. There arc three features in
particular which offer hope, if the plan is
adopted: first, rushing activities will be confined
to the latter part of freshman week, thereby
giving University authorities an unbefuddled
group of freshmen to examine and lead into their
proper place in University life; secondly, all fresh
man date programs must be placed under the
supervision of the dean of men’s office, and alter
ations in date programs must be made through
that office, a possible course for eliminating the
"date-breaking” abuses that have been so flag
rant in the past; anil, thirdly, but by no moans
least important, is the feature which will banish
the notorious fraternity house “hot-box,” from
which many a browbeaten freshman has emerged
with his bit of Greek-letter tinsel all pledging
is to be conducted through sealed bids, the
mechanics of which are, of course, fully described
in the complete plan published elsewhere in this
« « «>
The chief fault of the plan is to be found in
the provision for the supervision of date programs
by tiic office of the dean of men, a feature
admirable for its intent, but which has not been
adequately thought out. it takes no account of
the fact that it is the normal tiling for a fresh
man date card to go through constant alteration
during "rush week." it is a manifest impossibility
for the office of the dean of men or any other
body to keep track of these alterations and the
circumventions that will he taken to beat the
rules. This is a tough problem which the plan
fails to answer.
Yesterday afternon there came word that a
study of freshman week problems, upon which
Stanley King has been working for several
months under the guidance of Dean Karl On
thank, is near completion and probably will be
available early next week. The study is reported
to include three different plans for rushing pro
cedure. Perhaps one of these plans will cover the
difficulties not solved by the present plan. At
any rate it is worthwhile to hold fire until it is
learned what King has to offer.
Library Difficulty
Approaches Settlement
rr ■'ll 10 recent editorial in the Emerald sugg est
ing improvements in the campus library sys- .
tern has provoked a lively discussion both for !
and against the present set up. If the criticism in
the daily accomplished nothing else it provoked a
certain amount of thinking and airing of opinions.
However, this paper has been given a definite
promise that the charges it made as to ineffic
iency and disorganization will be investigated,
and where possible, remedied. The library admin
istration lias offered to cooperate with the Em
erald and the students in working out a plan
that will make the library click.
Changes in the present system of binding per
iodicals, which causes them to be out of the
library tor a prolonged length of time, will be
worked out. An endeavor for better cooperation
between students, faculty and library staff will
be initiated. Students have been invited to present
demands ror certain periodicals and if the do
mand is great enough, the periodicals will be
made available.
The Emerald is grateful for the cooperation
given by the library administration on the issue,
and urges the students to do their part in making
the library a workable unit for the encourage
ment of learning.
While the Emerald has not changed its former
position in any way, it will stand by for the
present and watch for the promised improve
Europe Once Again
Chooses Up Sides
TUST one more smashing blow is needed to
** knock completely off its pins a world even
now groggy with punches of wars and rumors
of wars, and a resurrection of the alliance system
that made possible the world war would provide
that blow.
The probability of a new lining up of the
"Central Powers” is quite justly "viewed with
alarm” in diplomatic circles the world over, mean
ing as it does, inevitable conflict and a return
to the pre-war spirit of international distrust
and hatred. If the last great war taught any
lesson, it was that the alliance of powers against
each other, although it might postpone war, ul
timately lead to it.
Yet today there are well-authenticated fore
casts of an Italo-German-Austro-Polish alliance
to set up against the present French-English
Russian union.
In 1914 Germany did not want to go to war,
but due to the promise of assistance she had
made to Austria, was forced to send her armies
into the field. In 1914 France wanted no war, but
she had allied herself with Russia, and so was
bound by “a scrap of paper” to add her troops to
the holocaust. Thus did alliances make possible
a war that set a new high in destruction.
Traceable to the Versailles treaty, with its
formation of sated nations and discontented na
tions, the new alliance system would include, in
spirit if not in fact, besides the original members
of the Little Entente, a new expanding power
that is coming into conflict more and more with
the "haves,” namely Japan. With such strength,
Lhese allies would inevitably spek new territory,
and thereby apply the match to another human
So long as nations were allied on but oorfe
side there was some hope for an eventual co
operation of the powers to preserve peace, but
that hope will fade with the building up of two
great opposing ententes.
Other Editors' Opinions
(London. Sir Harry Duncan McGowan, chair

fied before an* armament hearing that one side
of his firm is engaged in the manufacture of
fertilizer to bring forth the fruits of the earth,
while the other side is engaged in the manufac

The Air Angle
“The Ziegfeld Follies of the Air,”
with all the colorful embellishment
and star-studded glamor the name
of the late Florenz Ziegfeld implies,
will be brought to listeners in a
new series of weekly’full-hour pro
grams beginning tonight, starring
James Melton, Fannie Brice, Patti
i Chapin, and A1 Goodman's orches
tra. The program replaces the
Palmolive Beauty Box Theatre
under the same sponsorship—the
makers of Palmolive soap.
The major part of the comedy
will be created by Fannie Brice,
also currently starring in the new
Broadway edition of the “Follies,”
with an occasional song by the
girl who introduced such famous
i numbers as “My Man" and "Second
Hand Rose.”
For the most part, however, the
musical portion of the show will
feature Melton, Miss Chapin, and
Goodman's orchestra, and occa
sional guest stars from radio,
stage, and screen. Also, each week
there will be a serialized episode
in backstage human interest story.

Chet Kebbe, and A1 Hollingsworth.
Ducks Must Halt Palmberg
Oregon's big task tonight will be
to stop the scoring thrusts of
willowy Wally Palmberg. who has
dazzled conference foes in every
contest played by the Staters this
winter. Palmberg has piled up 137
points in 12 games and needs to
average only 10 in his four remain
ing- contests to establish a new all
time northern division scoring
Will-o’-the-wisp Wally was held
to eight points in the 2t'-to-27 fuss
here but poured in 15 tallies in the
slaughter of the Ducks at Corvallis.
Palmberg is the choice of nearly
all of the Oregon players as their
outstanding opponent of the sea
son. His brilliant floor play and
feeding and his unwillingness to
play an individual type of game
stamp Palmberg as one or the out
standing- players in northern divi
sion history.
Many Close Careers
Tonight will be Palmberg's final
appearance at McArthur court in
an Oregon State 9uit. Bergstrom,
Kidder, and Folen are other Bea
vers who will be playing their last
game in the Igloo.
Five Oregon players will bid a
final farewell to Eugene fans this
evening. Budd Jones, Willie Jones,
Rollie Rourke, Chuck Patterson,
and Ward Howell are the lads who
: will wind up their home collegiate
! competition.
In 69 games between Oregon and
Oregon State since the formation
; of the Pacific coast conference, the
Webfoots have won 35 times and
the Beavers 34. Thus a win for
i Slats Gill’s gang tonight will even
: the all-time series.
Students not presenting ASUO
cards will be admitted for 40 cents.
Programs containing names and
numbers will be sold at the game.

Since such famous plays as George
Bernard Shaw’s “St. Joan,” George
Kelley’s "The Show-Off” and “The

especially pertinent. George Jean

Phi Sig’s
Rushing Plan
(Editor’s note: The rushing reg
ulations presented by Bill Cor
man as president of Phi Sigma
Kappa fraternity are printed in
full below. The plan was pre
sented to the interfraternity
council at a meeting Thursday
and as yet has not been acted
The primary object of this week
should be academic orientation,
and secondary, the assurance of
the necessary and proper social
contacts. Therefore, the name of
the week should be changed from
"Freshman Week” to “Registration
The purpose of this plan is to
simplify the academic orientation
of incoming students, and elimin
ate the more objectionable and su
perfluous features of the present
rushing system.
Information regarding the rush
ing rules, University regulation,
week procedure be sent to every
incoming freshman.
All incoming freshmen be re
quired to register at the dean of
women's or dean of men’s office
upon their arrival. The new fresh
men sh',11 be assigned to rooms,
and j.11 be required to remain in
sucn room until registration week
is over. There are very obvious
advantages to be had if the dor
mitories could be used for this pur
On Monday evening of registra
tion week, the chancellor and the
president of the University, or
someone appointed by them, speaks
to the incoming freshmen, intro
ducing them to the University in
general and registration week in
particular. The importance of this
meeting shall be stressed in the
information sent the incoming
freshmen and the fraternities and
sororities should cooperate to the
fullest extent in assuring attend
ance at this meeting. The dean of
women, the dean of men, the stu
dent body officers, etc., should be
officially recognized at this time
and an honest effort made to im
press the incoming students with
the importance of their contacts
with the deans and other adminis
trative offices. The above objec
tives can only be attained by a
changed schedule of registration
week. The following meets all the
requirements fully:
Schedule for Registration Week
8 a. m. Monday — Psychological
examination to all incoming
freshmen at McArthur court.
Registration material issued to
old students with encouragement
to see advisers and finish their
' schedules in order to be free for
rushing activities.
10 a. m. Monday—Physical exam
inations start; appointments to
be made as at present.
1 p. m. Monday—English examina
tion to all incoming freshmen at
McArthur court.
3 p. m. Monday—Physical examin
ations continue.
8 p. m. Monday—Address to all in
coming freshmen by the chancel
lor and president.
9 a. m. Tuesday—Meeting with the
deans, or department heads, of
the different schools by those
freshmen definitely interested in
that school.
10-12 a. m. Tuesday—Informal dis
cussions with the deans and de
partment heads of the schools,
concerning prospective courses,
academic orientation, etc.
12 noon Tuesday—Rushing dates
His Virtue of
Honesty Is
Recognized in
All Walks of Life
It will do us all good just to
recall Washington's words,
"Father, I cannot tell a lie."
and practice this virtue of
honesty in all circumstances
which we face—such prac
tices will gdve us better
answers to our problems.
Phono ;W0 14 West 8th
8 a. m. Thursday—Registration
material issued to freshmen.
8 a. m. Friday—McArthur court
opens for registration.
12 noon Saturday—Registration
1 p. m. Saturday—Rushing dates
2-4 p. m. Saturday—Rushees re
cive sealed bids from fraterni
ties. These sealed bids shall be
taken by the president of each
house to the dean of men's of
fice for recording, at 1 o’clock.
The bids are then to be taken to
McArthur court and distributed
to the addressees by "University
officials. All rushees should call
between 2 and 4 o'clock for their
bids. No fraternity men shall be
allowed to be present and the
rushee must make his choice of
the bids he has received before
he leaves the building. He should
then register his choice with the
dean of men's office, where, af
ter he has signed his choice, he
shall be instructed that he is
free to proceed to the house for
his pledge pin.
Other Rules Named
To insure the carrying out of
such a schedule, and to further
carry out the objectives named
above, the following rules for rush
ing are essential:
Rushing rules’for men:
The dates for the day should be
divided as follows:
8-11 Breakfast and morning.
11-2 Lunch.
2-5 Afternoon.
5-7:30 Dinner.
7:30-11 Evening.
A fraternity shall have no more
than two dates a day nor more
than five during the entire week
with each rushee. (With the new
schedule there are 21 dates. If
each house took five, that would
give the rushee dates with four
houses, and since there are 17 on
the campus, five dates to each
house should be a maximum.)
Rushee Must Break Dates
A rushee can only break dates
at the dean of men’s office 24 hours
prior to the scheduled date. All
dates must be broken by the rushee
Houses shall be prohibited from
rushing any man who is not regis
tered in the dean of men’s office,
or who is not living in his assigned
room: Penalty: Rushee forfeits
right to pledge for one term. There
shall be no rushing after 11 p. m.:
Penalty: fine from $5 to $25. (Dif
ficulty was experienced with the
10:30 rule this year, since in many
instances late theater parties were
disrupted, etc.)
No Advance Pinning
No fraternity shall give a fresh
man a pledge pin before he has ac
cepted the bid of that house and
signed his choice at the designated
time and place. Any house found
guilty of such an offense shall for
feit the right to pledge the man
for one year.
A general assembly for “rush
ees” only will be held Saturday at
1 o'clock in McArthur court. The
purpose of the assembly will be to
explain to the rushee the necessity
of deliberation before making his
final choice of a house. The bids
may be called for immediately af
ter the assembly by the rushees.
Impartial Tribunal Asked
The executive committee or tri
bunal appointed to decide the rush
week cases should be as unbiased a
group as possible, but should be
well informed on rushing problems.
The following are recommended:
1. Dean of personnel.
2. President of the interfratern
ity council.
3. Representative from the stu
dent relations committee.
4-5. Faculty men from the law
The decision of this group shall
be final.
Penalty Cited
Complaints from the president or
temporary head of any house must
be turned into the tribunal the sec
ond week day following rush week
(Tuesday). The president of the
house making the complaint and
the president of the house on which
the charge is made should both ap
pear before the tribunal.
Any penalty imposed upon a
house by the tribunal must be com
plied with seven days after the
house has been notified. If this is
not done the entire pledge class of
that house shall be revoked until
proper action has been taken.
