A Great Year.
COON graduation will ring down the* curtain
on another school year at the University
of Oregon. In almost every respect, this year,
which is about to become a part of the Uni
versity’s record, has been a great one.
Through the efforts of Chancellor Fred
erick M. Hunter, all higher education was
spared drastic budget slices. At Oregon, the
new infirmary was opened fall term. Winter
term saw the new physical education building
in service, while the recent completion of the
library climaxed an almost phenomenal build
ing program.
similar story is that of the associated
students.| In athletic activities, under
the new split program, success was particu
larly outstanding. The football team held up
its end. Basketball was an oitystanding suc
cess—second only 1o the fact that the team
made a wonderful showing and tied for the
northern conference title was the heavy finan
cial gross of $K,000.
Atop the northern division standings at
present is the Oregon baseball team. It has
just completed the greatest “northern invas
ion” of any team in recent history by sweep
ing every one of its six games. It is almost
safe to say the Wobfoots have 4hc title vir
tually clinched, even in the face of the old
diamond curse which falls on a team counting
the number of outs or putting away the bats
before a game is ovex
'J’MIE educational branch of the association
has presented the strongest concert pro
gram in its history and the new setup has
“made good.” A progressive plan for the
election of student body officers and a move
to put appointive power in the hands of a
capable and neutral body indicated a greater
interest in student government, at least
among campus leaders.
Minor phases of the student activities pro
gram have not been neglected, although many
of them still need aid before they can be ex
pected to establish themselves as self-main
taining. These can be made to pay, with pro
per promotion.
What About the Future
pUIi tin- AKUO find (he II of 0, ltKIG-37 can
be marked down in Ihe records as a year
of achievement. However, ball games, beyond
a certain point, are seldom won “out, of the
records" or in the past; neither are student
body cards sold for many terms on past per
formances. New students do not select uni
versities and colleges on past glories alone—■
Oregon must continue to offer the same fine
educational program and must extend it.
Her the University must not be blinded by
its own glory, must not sit back, figuratively,
fat and contented, satiated with its own suc
Kvrry college and university in the north
Avcst is literally moving out. Idaho has an
increased enrollment and is constructing u
fine stadium which will, it hopes, seat 20,000,
including Wallace Rccry. All over the confer
ence there.is a budding— not of twigs and
grass alone but of increased spirit, increased
enrollment, increased drive and all the other
things which make for academic and institu
tional greatness.
* * *
1 year s eoneerl series is a great one,
the equal of this year's. The football
team is going to be better if the annual serim
mage practice was any indication. The Lemon
Yellow and (ireen grid squad will include
more capable reserves and the team will play
a more open and interesting type id' ball.
Oregon s basketball team should be even
belter in comparison to the strength of the
rest of the team in the league. The baseball
team will be strong, alotlnigli both of these
^ftrlegations lose their captain, John Lewis.
These things indicate a banner year. With
the state and the northwest and every college
expanding, this is no year to retrench or to
attempt to save ‘‘pennies’’ which we have
now. Such savings, no matter how impressiC?
they may appear on paper, are hoarded at
the expense of dollars in the future.
* * #
'plUS is no time to stand pat and to rest
on the institution s laurels. Oregon must
continue to build for the future.
On the one side is a brilliant future for
Oiegon. On the other is the oblivion of second
position. The University deserves a better
The Last Roundup
rJ"'IIlS is not a swan song, not a summary or
a review of the Emerald for the past year.
Lest it be mistaken for such because this is
the last Emerald, its purpose should be de
fined before its gets well under way.
My tenure as editor has been too brief to
permit me the liberty of reminiscence. This
piece, then, is in part a prospectus of the year
to come, a prologue at the end instead of an
epilogue. This it is but chiefly it is a small
attempt to give recognition for faithful and
inspiring service, a Weak testimonial to the
worth of three people who with retiring edi
tor Fred Colvig have formed the nucleus for
the Emerald.
* «•
jgY its very definition, such an editorial is
very limited in its appeal. It can mean
little to tin; campus at large that the Emerald
next year will attempt to maintain the high
standards which Fred Colvig has set. It seems
hollow to say it will strive for universal
coverage of all University activities, large and
small. It, is a small audience indeed which is
interested in the statement that the Emerald
staff next year is going to bend every effort
to make a better paper but without warping
nary a journalistic ethic.
The readers who find these statements sig
nificant are journalists. It is for them that
this is written. Only this small audience can
fully appreciate this statement of apprecia
tion of services, for though merit and effort
are everywhere recognized, few persons out
side the school of journalism realize just how
much of these things go into the making of
1.J0 papers each year for four years.
Clair Johnson
JT is perhaps to Clair Johnson that the Em
erald’s debt is greatest. To express my
personal appreciation for his assistance and
guidance would be to understate his worth,
for guide and aid he has been to every mem
ber of the staff and to the paper as a whole.
There is no need to enumerate the long
hours Clair spent as managing editor or to
list the other positions he has held. It has
always been the paper first with Johnson.
Possessing wide influence on the campus, lie
lias defended it warmly and intelligently
against the legions of critics which attack any
newspaper attempting to hold up its head
and fight for what seems right. Even more
valuable than Clair's defense of the Emerald
against enemies of the moment his been his
defense of the paper against itself. He has
been the check, the balance—in more than
several instances, the one man who looked
Virginia Endicott
'T'HE brilliant record which Virginia Endi
cott has made on the campus seems a
small thing to me in comparison with that
which she lias hewn out for herself on this
pa lie r.
b’or lour years, Virginia has never been too
busy or too tired to do something which really
needed doing. Iler work has not only been
rapid, it has been brilliant and accurate'. If
ever there was a born reporter, it is Virginia.
Moreover, she has extended the staunchness
of her friendship to include everyone who has
worked with her on the staff. Robert Lucas,
editor of t wo years ago, once elmracterized her
as “the best man on the start’.” If I mens
erred in his statement, it was on the side of
# #
Mildred Blackburne
JJAINSTAKINU, eonseienlinns, so depend
able slio lias often put tin* rest of the staff
to shame has been Mildred lllaekburue. foe
tour vears it lias been evident that if you
wanted a tiling done well, you should do il
yourself; if you wanted it done perfeetly, you
should turn it over to Mildred.
Millie has made mistakes in her four years
on the hinerald—lor three of them 1 have
watehed her and she never made the same
error (wire. Her work has been more than
inspiring. To anyone who wanted to learn,
she has been the ablest and most willing
teaeher, patient in explaining mistakes atul
relentless in turning them bark ueross the
eopy desk.
* * *
fl’’ anyone not on the luuerald staff or in the
sellout of journalism has read this far and
been bored, he or slm must admit that they
'"’,,re warned. The\ eannot imagine how
empty the shark is going to be next year
without Millie fussing around the desk, with
out hndieott nodding seriously over a type
writer, and without t lair explaining this or
that just isu t the thing to sa' or the wav
to say it.
1 lie I'.meraId is going to suffer through
the loss of their sendees. Were it not that
they have been such an inspiration and a sort
ot "taeult\ for younger workers, it would
be almost impossible for it to earn on.
It s going to be damn lonesome and lough
sledding around here next year without these
three people. Their personalities and sendee
will not be forgotten.
