The Sorority Libe Study Plan
/T'IIE most Instill" impression of 1 lie University of Oregon
gained by sorority Irishmen would seem to be the library,
if one may judge from the survey of house regulations re
leased in today's Emerald. According to the survey 1- sorori
leased in today’s Emerald. According to the survey 1- soror
ities 'require their freshmen to be in the library 2d to 13d
hours per week. Taking time out for 1b hours of classes means
that the frosh of the few houses with minimum require
ments are spending at least 10 hours per week in I lie libe.
The rest of the libe “slaveys” arc required to spend up to
20 hours every seven days, with most meeting the maximum
total. Unless we arc mistaken, about the only thing a sorority
freshman gets 1o know better is her bed.
In defense of these regulations sororities say they create
good study habits, that they improve the grades of freshmen,
and on the whole arc of educational value. II all these con
tentions were true the system which requires at least 200
freshmen and pledges to spend more than 2000 study hours
(estimating conservutivtdy) in the library might be of value.
But tin' record does not indicate successful results.
Q1RLS’ eo-opcrativo houses, according In the grade stand
ings released during 1 he past years, have consistently
stood at the top of all enmpus living organizations. On very
few oeeasions have sororities lopped t In*' (J1* As posted by the
co-ops, in spite of the fa id. that the latter organizations have
no requirements as to study in Ihe library. Among the three
sororities without 1 ilx* study regulations, Sigma Kappa and
Alpha Xi Delta have rated high in the standings which have
been released in the past.
The value of the sorority regulations certainly does not
pay off in grades, as Ihe general trend of Ol’As indicates.
When the immeasurable benefits of improvement in study
habits (the only oilier benefit received) are stacked up
against the difficulties caused in the library by the sorority
practice, defense of the system becomes all but impossible.
# * # #
^JONDIT IONS in the library have been becoming increas
ingly difficult this year, according to the testimony of
library officials upon whom the burden of keeping order falls.
They feel, and are in a position to judge fairly accurately,
that a great measure of the trouble comes from these house
regulations, which send a large number of students to the
library when they do not need or want to use the library for
its proper purpose.
The resulting pandemonium makes the library a less effi
cient place for the entire campus. The benefit allegedly re
ceived by 200 sorority freshmen and pledges; lowers the value
of the Jibe to the entire campus community.
The sorority library study system has been challenged. The
proponents of the rules must show the campus that they are
concretely valuable. If they find it impossible to show the
value of these methods (and we believe they cannot) the
sororities must take over the problem of ereating study habits
and improving grades in tlieil- own houses, rather than
shunting tin* problem to harrassed library officials.

Messers Buckley and lleniges are, if you haven't heard
them already, two gentlemen known in the box scores as
“officials." Furthermore, they hold the rather strange dis
tinction of being zealous about their job . . . and their job
is to blow whistles. We might say. after witnessing the Idalm
Oregon series last weekend, that these gotlemeu are not only
zealous, but fanatically addicted to “whistlemia,” a condi
tion which arises from swallowing the whistle, the result
of which is a signal that some dastardly violation of the rules
has been committed. We refuse to believe that even the most
aggressive basketball players could be so consistently guilty
as was indicated Saturday night b\ the whistlemia disease
which the officials found so contagious. Ii ain't right, men,
to play traffic cop on the basketball court at the expense

of everyone concerned. Probably pail of 1 ho blame belongs
1o Die coaches, who usually ins!ruet Ibe officials before the
game how close they want the rules called. It is well known
that Ihe southern division conference interprets foul-calling
only to the point where an actual foul—and one that actually
hinders the immediate play—is committed. The only criticism
of that comes during the play-off series when the northern
team invariably finds itself handicapped by refereeing that
is quite foreign to their habits on the floor, but the handicap
is reversed the following year when the southern team comes
north and find officiating too strict. A medium could most
certainly be found, and during the recent Washington series,
handled by the same Frank Ileniges, plus Emil Piluso, Oregon
fans had a good sample of it. The whistle-tooting then was
at a minimum and the game was anything but rough; players
were too busy trying to score points 1o take the time and
effort to unnecessarily foul opponents. Much praise was
heard of Ihe officiating during that series. Yet the following
week officiating completely ruined the game and the spec
tators almost unanimously declared that “foul" ought to he
spelled “ fowl.’’
If that's basketball, sirs, you can play it in a circus.

[^AST year we made a suggest ion, and we again repeat it...
someone of authority ought to call a conference of north
ern and southern division coaches and officials and clarify
the interpretation of rules before the season begins, thus
ironing out the discrepancy that exists in the Pacific coast
conference basketball officiating. It ought to he one way or
the other, regardless of “tradition.”
Our last hope is that such incongruous officiating does
not occur during the championship play-off when those past
masters of publicity, the Californians, flock to Eugene (we
hope) lor basket ha 11.' We are quite sure that neither Mr.
Hobson nor any oilier coach would want to win a champion
