On the Calliope
1IKE Emeralds of the past, this year's paper
-* has done what it could to eliminate the more
undesirable features of campus politics. The
manipulation of class politics by varsity bigwigs,
the practice of exchanging votes for promises of
jobs, the lack of progressive, concrete ideas in
support of candidacy, and the arbitrary exclusion
from ASUO offices of those outside the fraternal
circles, nave been attacked - with some degree of
success. Both tickets have shown, a willingness to
cooperate in solving these problems; and their
cooperation has been appreciated.
Although the Calliope column has erred at
times in its offorts to present an unbiased picture
of the political picture, it has been successful in
that charges of partiality have come from both
campaign managers—not the candidates them
* # *
Politics in itself, as it exists on this campus,
will hurt few people materially. It is fun, activity;
and it gives some self-styled Jim Farleys the
feeling of omnipotence. This is fine—if the fellows
can get a job with it.
But politics on this campus, as far as training
in civic government goes, is a perpetuation of the
spoils system, ;a a travesty on the ability and
willingness of students to think for themselves,
and is a colossal joke on the boys who are in school
for an education.
But oh me, oh my, oh lackaday! Bring out the
cars, kid the independents, watch the political
fences, dine the sororities to distraction, and
travel fast under the smoke screen of cultural
development. If this is training in American gov
ernment, then don't blame Jimmie Walker. At
least he pulled out an extra suit of clothes.
Step Forward in
C'EVIGKAL years ago an advisory system was
^ introduced at the University. It was a decided
improvement over the conditions which it usurped,
but it had, and still has, a number oi’ faults and
disadvantages which limit its possibilities.
The time have come to take another step for
ward in the intelligent advisement of students,
and, with that purpose in view, the Student Aca
demic Adjustment committee, whose report will
be submitted at the next meeting of the faculty,
has been considering plans for an improved ad
The plan which has found most favor with this
student committee, involves a full-time employ
ment of a number of expert advisors. It would be
the duty of these advisors to spend the summer
months contacting prospective entering students,
t6 advise them and suggest the courses best suited
to their abilities and desires. This would eliminate
the 20-minute advisory period which places a
strain on advisors and students alike.
During the remainder of the year, the advisors
would be accessible to all students on the campus
for consultation regarding their curricula, but also
for vocational guidance. Valuable tests and the
advice of trained educators would thus be available
to all those enrolled in the University.
Needless to say, such a set-up would, almost
of necessity, include Oregon State college and pos
sibly other schools of higher education in the state.
An important feature of such a plan would be
the encouragement and stimulation given young
men and women, both to attend university, and to
complete their careers once they have begun.
'T'HE sun, wind, and rain of a year have played
over that poor nameless waif of the Univer
sity, Anonymous field, and now finally it is to be
given a name.
Long lists of prominent alumni have been
scoured. Men have poured over biographical dic

tionarlea far into the morning. Color charts,
botanical catalogues, history books, telephone
directories—all have been consulted, and now the
happy word has flown out that the list of names

FUTURE OF STUDENT ACTIVITIES
REPARATION of athletic and non-athletic activ
k * ities is indicated as a first step toward greeting
the problem created at the University, the State
College, and the normal schools by the public vote
against the compulsory fee system which has
supported these enterprises for many years. Ulti
mately, it will be possible to restore a moderate
uniform fee for those activities which can be
demonstrated to have educational merit, and this
list could very well include a wide range of popu
larized sports as distinguished from intercollegiate
athletics which can depend on a “gate."
The situation is far from being dark and hope
less. The Oregon schools have an opportunity to
establish a pattern for the management of these
enterprises which will be followed in many states.
There hds been no rebellion against athletics. There
has been rebellion against a tax to sustain activi
ties from which the majority have received only
casual benefit. Time has been the most important
factor in the changes. Intercollegiate athletics
have been burdened with a large and rapidly in
creasing list of “dependents." Many worthy stu
dent enterprises have suffered from being merely
part of the tail to the athletic kite. The reorgani
zation is difficult but it is logical and for that
reason it should win wide support.
In intercollegiate athletics the Oregon schools
have an opportunity to insist on certain changes
which will improve the conditions of competition
in the entire Coast Conference. The Oregon schools
can compete with the best on any plan which
eliminates subterfuge in the procurement of ath
letes. All schools “pay" athletes. It doesn’t matter
a great deal whether athletes are financed out of
donated funds or out of the “gate." It does matter
a great deal to have uniform and strict enforce
ment of decent scholarship requirements, a new
standard of sportsmanship, if you want to call it
that, it is time to drop all pretence, if educational
institutions are to lend their names to sport. The
Oregon schools can lead in that. Eugene Register

CCC boys enrolled in civilian
conservation camp 807, Paris.
Texas, are radio enthusiasts of
the first water. They could
hardly wait to get in from work
to listen to the programs. So
Alvin O. Hue, camp educational
director, fixed it so the boys
could listen in all Ihe time.
“I noticed the boys were
greatly interested in your NBC'
(plug programs,” said Hue,
“Now I hook up a set and take
it to where they are working.
All tho enrollees and 'foremen
are delighted by the programs.”
According to Rue the radio
accompaniment has vastly
speeded up the CCC boys’ pro
duction. Not that there wasn’t
plenty of room for speeding up,
but we have our doubts. Can’t
you just see the guys swinging
their little hatchets to “swing”
music, planting conifers to the

No one will disagree with Finley
that invitations to high school
groups to hold state conventions
here would be beneficial, but the
fact still remains that this should
be carried on indirectly by the
whole student body. This problem
of high school contacts has been
taken care of adequately in the
past by the numerous rushing
functions sponsored by the Greek
letter organizations, personal rela
tions of the Oregon students with
their friends back home, the
“scouting” by the athletic coaches,
and the functions carried on by the
Greater Oregon committee.
My opponent chooses to feel that
we should not have any ideas as
to new student attitudes inasmuch
as the new student executive coun
cil may undergo reorganization.
Both parties agree, then, that there
is going to be a great deal of re
organization in the students’ part
in managing. the affairs of the
ASUO in cooperation with the ad
ministration; but I must say that
they have tactfully avoided all pos
sible suggestions for solutions in
Thus I am heartily in accord
with the suggestions of the oppos
ing candidate, all of which have
been included among the details of
my platform, yet I feel that lit
fails to offer any constructive
method or plan by which the unit
ed effort of the student body may
be guided toward a favorable de
termination of its policies.
