handsome silver loving cup and a
two-year letterman’s sweater by
his student admirers at yesterday’s
pep assembly.
Chancellor F. M. Hunter made
the award of the engraved trophy

dents. He urged youth to follow

Letters, Slogans
May Win Prizes
Alumni Mafjazitir Content
Annoiinrd by Johnson
For All Aspirants
Two new contests are announced
in the current issue of Old Oregon
magazine, which came off the
press last week.
In the one contest, Editor Clair!
Johnson is awarding a $1 prize
monthly for the best contribution
to his letters column of "Quacks.”
He says the writers may condemn,
commend, or just comment, but
they must make their remarks'
sparkling and interesting.
The prize in the other contest
is a $5 membership in the alumni
association, and it will be awarded
to the person turning in the best
slogan of eight words or less which
can be used to express the new
spirit and revival of interest char
acterizing the alumni association
since Mr. Fansett assumed office.
Rules in the latter contest men
tion that entries need not be writ
ten on the back cover of Old Ore
gon nor a reasonable facsimile. Al
so decisions of the judges will not
be final because if anyone wants
to argue they should come into
the office and the staff will at
tempt to convince them of the nec
essity of paying their alumni dues.
Full particulars of both contests
may be obtained at the alumni of
fice in Friendly hall.
Firing Line
(Continued from pape three)
Reports say that In* probably won’t
bt* in there against the Trojans.
Well, Oregon State’s Mr. Klmer
Kolberg had poison oak last Sat
urday, and he played anyway, half
the game. Of course, he wasn’t
any particular asset to the Beav
ers. But let’s not shed tears yet
for poor Stanford.
The four defeat tradition in the
northern division may easily slip
by the boards this year, but more
than five defeats and a first place
team — never! Thus Washington
State's crestfallen Cougars must
beat Idaho Saturday at Moscow or
it'll be all up with their chance to
tie for first.
Idaho, with little Steve Belko in
the saddle, might upset the third- j
place Cougars. Forrest Twogood’s 1
gang put up two tremendous bat- J
ties against Washington and the |
Vandals are again about due.
Nothing pleases them more than
a win over their arch rivals of nine
miles away.
National Program

track and field squad. During my
freshman year the Colonel took
me under his wing and showed me
the finer points of discus throwing,
and I was the frosh plate thrower.
I didn’t develop sufficiently last
year to compete, so I didn’t. But
I think that I should be able to
get the discus out to around the
140 foot mark this year, and am
going to compete for the Colonel.
Q: The paper here says that you
were the King of Hearts this year.
Is that correct ?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: Are you still the reigning
royalty ?
A: No sir. You see judge, this
King of Hearts deal is a mythical
title. Why I was chosen as the
tops, I don't know. But I got
through it all right and really en
joyed#my brief reign. It din t hurt
me and I am a better man for all
of that. I did take an awful rib
bing from the boys who perform
with me for the Mens Agitat Mo

Q: What do you think of this
year's Oregon team ?
A: It is one of the finest ever
to represent this school and I am
proud to be a member of it.
Q: There has been a rumor cir
culating that some gentlemen,
whose manorial estates are close
by, are going to drop over and
administer a little wax to your
figures tonight. Is that true ?'

brief scene, taken from real life
was presented to make the plain
tiff more at home, for he, Dave
Silver, is a junior in law, and ex
pects to enter the law school next
year and graduate some three
years hence. The use of latin and
various legal phrases was also part
ef the atmosphere.)
Jameson Recovering
From Appendectomy
Samuel H. Jameson, social sci
ence professor, is recovering fol
lowing an appendicitis operation
performed Wednesday at Sacred
Heart rospital. His condition last
night, according to a hospital re
port, was “very good.’’
Grades, Formal
(Continued from forte one)
And these examinations too often
take the form of verbal gymnas
tics which may or may not bear
some relation to a knowledge of
the subject in hand.
A few weeks ago we were offer
ed a rather melancholy diversion
at assembly when we listened to
a self-styled educator give his
views on what might (by sympa
thetic interpretation) be termed
humanizing education, i. e. making
education homocentric or man
centered (egocentric?). The speak
er’s self revealing statement that
such matters as the behavior of
the sun’s light, the chemical na
ture of substances, the develop
ment of the embryo, the circula
tion of the blood, meant nothing
to him, was apalling to those who
regard the great aim of education
to be the finding of one’s place in
this complex universe.
Education Akin to Living
An educational scheme which
seeks to cut off the human being
from a knowledge of his kinship
with other living things, and of his
debt to the inanimate world, is
serving retrogression. The substi-1
tution of training in verbalism for
vital contacts with actual things is i
simply reviving the worst features
of medieval scholasticism. Histori
cally, it should be noted, the times
of completely homocentric educa- i
tion were coincident with the i
greatest inhumanity to individuals -
on the part of society.
To sum up, if we would make (
our University an institution of \
learning, in a very real sense, each i
individual must set himself the 1
aim of knowing something 1
thoroughly, not because it may
help him earn a dollar or wangle
a social or political advance, but 1
because it is a glorious thing to !
know the best the race has pro
duced through the centuries, and
to know’, as far as we can, howf I
the various forces of nature, of
which we are a part, behave. Such
an aim is an all-consuming one. 1
and leaves “activities” where they
belong, as merely recreations.
Grades become no longer interest
ing because each student would
be aware of his own power and
shortcomings, and if he were real
ly anxious to know (though God
knows why he should be) how far
his accomplishments met with the
approval of his teachers, he could
wait with tranquil soul for the
final comprehensive examination

Keimell-Ellis Studios
Now with this vague hint of spring in the air,
life has taken on a new meaning, especially to the
coeds on the campus. They have a new incentive
for buying their clothes. Even the showers that are
slated lor the spring have been such an incentive.
KAY BOGDANOVIC, Hendrick Hall, decided
that with the approaching showers, that she should
be thoroughly prepared at her very best. A search
of Eugene shops, for new spring raincoats, ended
when she saw WASHBURNE’S exclusive rubberized
shantung coats. These coats are the very latest of
their kind. Kay’s is robin-egg blue and is made
into a strictly sport outfit, of the three-quarter
swagger length type.
In contrast to Kay, MARY JANE MAHONEY
GAMMA, have decided that spring means cool
clothes, sweaters and skirts. Mary Jane and Bar
bara went to the DUDLEY FIELD SHOP and found
two new sweaters that filled the bill. Mary Jane's
is a turquoise blue one with short sleeves, while
Barbara's is a white sweater with yarn embroidery
dots of different colors that form the idea of a yoke.
JO ALUTT, sophomore on the campus, chose a
bolero for her pre-spring outfit. At WASH
BURNE’S, she found a dark blue dress that suited
her to a “T”. The dress has the proverbial swing
skirt, but the top is a print of yellow, light blue,
dark blue, and white. It is topped with a gathered
yokes, under a matching dark blue peter pan collar.
The bolero jacket is, also, blue, very plain, but with
a buttonhole piping or the print as an outline.
BETTY CRAWFORD, Kappa Alpha Theta, in
preparing for the remainder of the season’s campus
dances, decided on a black taffeta formal at GOR
DON’S. Her dress has a square neck, medium low,
outlined with white lace. The sleeves of the same
lace are attached to the dress lw a thin band of
black across the shoulder. One of the main features
of the dress is the new wide band of lace, around
the skirt just below the knee. A nosegay of bright
flowers, which is worn in the center of the neckline,
allows for the small bit of color.
choice a formal that she got at R. C. HADLEY’S.
The dress is a royal blue of satin back crepe. The
skirt flares just above the knees. The outstanding
bits of the dress are the 12 cords that attach the
full pointed collar to the waist of the dress in the
back, and six rhinestone clips on the bodice.
The latest pin planting on the campus, of course,
is always news. JACK WAGSTAFF and PI PHI
