Unbeknownst to manv University students, a compulsory
athletic card stew is brewing down at the state legislature.
Some years ago the people of the state defeated a legislature
hill giving the hoard authority to charge the fees. Now there
lias been a renewal of the movement, to give the board power
to charge a compulsory alhletic fee in th schools of the
state system of higher education.
Main argument advanc 1 for the hill ; . .1 it will allow
the athletic department to broaden its extracurricular activity
field so that more students may participate. The emphasis,
then, would no longer he placed on sports bringing in large
gate receipts. Most institutions on the coast have such an
The l\egister-( luard in arguing for the proposal declares
that tin.' idea of submitting the plan to the students is unwise,
feeling that it would he better to “leave it to the board’s good
judgment to say what fees should he and when."
(Mi the contrary, we feel that the students are the very per
sons who should he consulted. It is their money which would
pav for the accelerated athletic program, and it is for their
benefit that such a program would he inaugurated.
We don't mean necessarily that the legislature should turn
over the plan to the student bodies of the various schools and
abide therein bv the decisions.
\\ hat we would like to see is a poll taken on each of the
campuses involved to he used as an indication of student
thought on the plan and a guide in deciding its merits and
;icl\ isabilit v.
The result, we feel certain, would mean an improvement in
the relations between the state legislature and the state schools
of higher education.

Dean Earl Just Missed
Picking Coaching Career
By DOROTHY HABEL
The fact that the male population on the University of Qn^
gon campus has greatly decreased since the war, does not seem
to lesson the work of the dean of men, Virgil D. Earl.
After graduating from the University in 1906 with a BA
and an MA in 1932, and attending the Oregon Law School
from 1909 to- 1910, Dean Earl commenced his career in educa
tional work. Beginning as an instructor, from 1906 to 1907 at
the Lewiston, Idaho, high school, [
he then went to Jefferson, Oregon,
where he w'as appointed principal
of the high school, and superinten
dent of the grade schools. From
1908 to 1912, the dean remained
as an instructor at Washington
high school, and then in 1912 be
came head of the mathematics de
partment. In 1919 he was appoint
ed principal of the Astoria high
In 1923 Dean Earl came to Ore
gon as director of athletics and
served in that capacity until 1930
when he took over his present po
sition as dean of men.
F>esides his regular work as
dean, Virgil Earl has taken an ac
tive part in student activities,
serving for four years as adviser
on the ASUO executive council.
Almost Became Coach
“Ever since I came back to the
University in 1923,” reported Dean
Earl, “I have been especially in
terested in athletics, .and for a
while was manager of the track
team. In fact, coaching almost be
:ame my career.”
When queried about his work,
the dean replied, “Well, of course
you know our main responsibility
lies in solving and advising the stu
dents with their various problems,
but I am also head of the student
loan fund, which is a job in itself.
Oftentimes we handle $ 125,000 a
Like many in his profession,
Dean Earl's duties will become
more complicated as the war draws
on and the veterans begin to re
turn. “I’m trying to help them in
the adjustments of their affairs
and their start of an educational
program. It is estimated that at
least 25 per cent of those qualified
for an education will return to
college and the estimate of Ore
gon’s returning veterans is from
3,000 to 5,000.
Women Veterans, Too
“But you must remember, vet
erans are not men alone. Already
two returning women have en
rolled for next spring term and
this is expected to be the beginning
of a procession of girls from the
service who are entitled to some
of the benefits. Our greatest prob
lem lies in the housing project for
the married couples and those with

of research papers, though not
the sake of publication, but more
