One Strike on Buck
rpilK OREGON DUCK anil the Washington
State Cougar met on the diamond for tlie
first time yesterday and produced between
them a ball game. Oregon and WSC frames
arc always bard fought and interesting but
lliis game earned some kind of a record—it
stole the show from the Cougar’s beliemothian
coach. Buck Bailey.
It was a close tiling for several innings—
not only the game, which grew tighter as (lie
afternoon waned, but also the race between
the two teams and Bailey for the crowd’s
The game drew first blood with Goddard’s
home run. Bailey retaliated when Oregon
scored in the next inning by kicking over the
water bucket. The crowd screeched. After
that if was a nip and tuck battle, the lead
see-sawing every inning. Bailey drew gales of
applause when lie called bis catcher, napping
on second base, a “horse,” but interest in
the game stormed to the boiling point with
another pair of circuit, clouts.
JT WAS A SAD thing' to watch, that last
inning. Not, only because it saw Oregon
slip down into defeat after a gallant stand
but because it saw Buck go down, fighting
courageously to hold his record. No ball game,
at least not for many moons, had ever suc
ceeded in permanently cramping the scintil
lating Bucks’ style. Aided by Mel Marlowe,
his counterpart when on the flWtind, Buck
stormed and stomped, rose to new heights —
but it was no use—the ball game was a natur
al. It emerged Victorious.
The thing that lends interest if not dig
nity to the antics of Washington State’s color
ful coach is the fact that so much of his color
is natural, unforced. When WSO plays a.
northwest conference ball game, no matter
how far from home, there is usually a goodly
portion of the ciowd on hand primarily to see
Buck perform. Down through the years lie
has given a rosy tint, not just to his own
teams but to the league as a whole, which
contiasts well with the usual sombre serious
ness of baseball.
Today Buck may regain iiis title, score a
win over the national sport. With two such
closely matched teams in the liehl, he is going
to have a lough afternoon. Personally, we'll
be on his side. We just couldn ’t stand another
thriller like that last one.
The EndrNot the Means
'TMIK KAIKKALD has never had any quarrel
with the professed ideals on which the
coalition was based. Although elections are
today and politics will be tucked back into
the moth balls for another 11 months, we want
this definitely understood.
Our quarrel with the coalition, and it was
never a heated one, has centered about two
things. The Kmerald stated that a coalition
with no common danger or interest to hold it
together could hardly succeed and that there
■was little need for such a group. It also ques
tioned the right of such a body to set itself
up mandatorily as representing campus opin
The coalition itas failed but we do not in
tend to chortle. We believe it failed because
of this lack of a strong common factor to weld
its intricate parts together. Its organizers
gave the system a death blow when it be
came apparent that blocs were forming re
gardless of their efforts. They say that in
doing so they did not merely drop professed
ideals—that they were sincere in their state
ments and that the bloc did not split because
it refused to back the man of their choice.
# # *
BELIEVE in their sincerity. It is our
firm belief that the coalition was de
signed to give wider campus representation
and curtail dirty politics.
Because the founders were essentially
working towards 1he.se ends, we can also
hold the belief that they Will give proportion
al representation and the preferential ballot a
fair and objective trial.
This new system should be a long step in
the direction of those; ideals on which the
group was formed. If it proves to be such
after a fair trial, we are confident that the
campus leaders who enthusiastically support
ed the unified campus movement will put
their weight behind it—for we think that bas
ically their purpose is to accomplish those
ideals by the most feasible means, and they
will find the preferential ballot to be the true
The Emerald Apologizes
"Y’EBTERDAY an Emerald story intimated
that the freshman class const it lit ion adopt
ed last night was pushed through before the
opposition party, which doesn't happen to be
in power just now, arrived.
We do not know the circumstances of the
case but it is apparent from reading the story
that the reporter over-stepped his privileges
as a news writer and made direct statements
as to the time the meeting was called which
were attributed to no one.
Maybe the constitution was “railroaded’’
through. Maybe it wasn’t. We apologize for
our reporter's error, which, incidentally, was
not entirely his fault. We do not think he was
swayed by any political prejudice. We have
no ground on which to advance an ethical
hypothesis as to the legality of the motion in
question. That is not our business; neither
is it our place to apologize for the class au
thorities if the procedure was irregular. Both
parties are invited to state their eases in the
The Oracle Has Spoken
rJ"'IIK COALITION failed to do it — tin* pref
erential ballot hasn't completely brought
about the elimination of polities — but the
knell of political blocs and horse-swapping
sessions was sounded yesterday.
The oracle has spoken. Where gentler
measures were to no avail, a direct statement
'delivered to heads of houses by the dean of
women yesterday ended all campus political
meetings by ordering fraternities and sorori
ties not Id hold either political dances or ses
sions of any sort.
The dean's mandate indicated, however,
that the meetings of the coalition group were
not frowned upon. It is directed primarily
at bloc meetings where factions gather and
only a part of the campus is represented.
interpreted in this light, the measure lies
its merits, for, although it is a direct blow
at student privileges b\ the administration, it
is designed to eliminate the hchind-thc back
action, and the political skull-duggery which
have made campaigns so bitter (and savory'
in t he past.
Thus viewed the mandate is much more
acceptable, although it is at tirst glance a
dictatorial curtailment of rights. Those
acquainted with the nature of campus polities
will, however, probably agree that anyone
who attempts to enforce such a measure is
biting oil a prett\ big job.

The Fraternity Moodier
or Have You A Cigarette?
By MARTHA STEWART
He was the oesc dressed man on the campus. He always saw to that.
When he came to the University as a freshman, he’d looked over ail
the houses, and had at last decided upon the one with tne largest
number of well-dressed members who were about his size. From then
on the going was smooth. At first he went about it cautiously. He
didn’t want to offend the boys. He though it wise to acquaint them
with his methods gradually.
He began first with his room-mate. Came time to don apparel for
the day, he'd clap the room-mate
fondly on the back.
“Nice looking tie you have
there,” he'd comment cheerily. If
his room-mate only nodded, he’d
"In fact it’s just the kind of a tie
I've been looking for to go with
that grey suit of mine.” Perhaps
the room-mate would nod again.
Then he'd continue with elaborate
“Wouldn’t like to sell it to me,
would you?” Usually the room
mate liked the tie too and would
not like to sell it to him, but woulc
generously offer to let him wear
the tie. From that day forth the
room-mate would see it only wher
it was tied around the well-dressec
Later, after he got to know th£
boys better, he found that thej
could be coaxed to offer their suits
their socks, and their money with
“Gosh,” he'd murmur with a
horror stricken expression on his
face as he turned out two emptj
pockets to a group of sympathetic
brothers when they knew he hat
a date in twenty minutes. “Gosh, 1
musta lost the money I had. Nov
if that isn't a spot to be in! Sweil
est date on the campus, and 1
went and lost my money! Well o!
all the-!” And the boys would
pass around the hat and make uj
a. jolly little contribution and sene
him off, happy as a king, in the
president’s sox, the house-mouse's
shirt, his room-mate’s suit, and his
own shoes, to be the best-dressec
man of the ball.
These, though, were only the less
frequent tricks of the trade. The}
happened only once or twice s
week. It used to worry him be
cause there were days at a time
when he had to spend his own mon
ey, and when everybody’s clothing
but his own seemed to be under
lock and key.
However, he had one trick thal
never failed. He called it affec
tionately, “The Empty Package,’
and it had become so good that he
cnly had to keep a package ol
cigarettes with him for use wher
he was alone.
The way it worked was this
