The Emerald wishes to extend its congratulations to the
newly-elected Phi Beta Kappa members.
Awarding of the coveted key is a distinction which, more
than any other honor won in the artificial world of college,
sticks to one throughout his or her life. Wherever he goes, a
‘‘Phi Bete ” is “somebody" to college-trained men and women.
Perhaps a little too much is occasionally made of this distinc
tion without enough cognizance of the achievements or lack of
them of the person in question. But statistics show that holders
of the key rank quite high in general notability, service, and
accomplishments—as might, of course, be expected. The list
4? of “Phi Bete" graduates from the University of Oregon who
reside in Eugene and vicinity alone includes its present mayor,
the managing editor of its paper, a colonel of the United States
army, and several Universitv faculty members.
The winners of Phi Beta Kappa are. by the very nature of
their award, invested with a large share of the responsibility of
pulling America through its crises, of improving it both sociallv
and materially as a land in which to live, and in fighting the
influences which tend to narrow men's minds the world over.
The are, quite literally “On the spot.” Great things, in a manner
of speaking-, are not only expected from them, the)- are demand
ed. This is one reason why the winning of the honor is made
so difficult. Only those who give indication by their records
in college that they will become pillars of integrity and main
— stays of human progress are even considered for the award.
And having thus received it on the basis of what really amounts
to their potentialities, they are looked to for actual perform
