The Oregon Daily Emerald and Oregon haven't changed a great
deal in the last 16 years. Meetings were being held upstairs in the Side
and it was raining. How can you tell, look at some of the old Emeralds
over at the shack.
Some students were not getting four points, just as now. An item
in the May 9, 1933 issue notes that 203 students had received grade
warnings. Three hundred fifty-six had one D or F, and all students with
low grades could rest assured that their parents would be informed.
There was a misleading head here and there in the Emerald even
in the dark days of the depression.
“Jean Failing Announces Meet of Club Heads.’’
A comment on the edit page a few days later inquires, “Professors ?
The Emerald was All American then too. A story in the same May
9 issue tells of the selection, with the Emerald receiving 910 points from
a possible 1000.
Dads’ Day plans were underway with dedication of the then new
John Straub dormitory to be a part of the celebration. An editorial asks
that campus smart alecs and bullies refrain from the usual rowdyism
at the picnic.
An editorial page column entitled, “On Other Campuses,” refers
to a Barometer editorial in which the Beavers call FFA boys in Cor
vallis for a convention, “our little brothers.” Need there be more even
Advertising was similar to the 1949 material except for slight dif
ferences. The Colonial Theater advertises, “Oliver Twist on our screen,
any seat in the house, 15 cents.” A local lumber yard wishes to sell
“Canoe Fete Supplies.” Pressed wood, kalsomine, veneers, paints, and
The Emerald sponsored a 15-minute radio program, “For 'the athlete
or the fan.” Bill Hayward’s life story was being run serially. A cut
shows a much younger man than the leather-faced old fellow that fresh
men of 1948 know only as a tradition.
Joe Gordon was a freshman. A young lady sports writer says, “He
hates to comb his hair, hates to get up in the morning, is very bashful,
but delights in calling girls on the telephone and talking to them for
half an hour at a time without giving his name. Joe Gordon is the best
baseball player the frosh have had :n years. He played for Jefferson
high in Portland and was the American Legion’s best junior league
shortstop. He thinks he would make a good pole vaulter, and would
like to set heads for the Emerald.”
Maybe we should take thim up on it.
