We're Sending Valentines Too
Every year ’bout the second week in bebruary you begin
thumbing through the hundreds of \ alentine card> bedecking
drug stores and Co-ops and the like. Why? Because you have
some special person in mind—your mom, a brother, a cuirent
sweetheart, a good friend—as the recipient of this paper-and
ink show of friendship (or maybe ridicule).
We, being busv publishing a newspaper for you, didn t quite
find time to make our selection of cards this year. So ... we ic
going to take advantage of our position and send ours through
the medium of this paper.
We had a long list in mind ... but not as much space so
we had to pare it down a bit. Anyway we consider our final
choices pretty good ones.
Our Emerald Valentines go .. .
• To Lyle Nelson, his 75th anniversary committee and the
assembly committee ... for the tremendous slate of speakers
scheduled for this school year at Oregon.
• To Paul Dull, Jane Simpson and her University Religious
council and W.S. Baldinger and his faculty committee on re
ligious and spiritual activity ... for the opportunity of hearing
the Parliament of World Religions, the first event of its kind
we know of in the U.S.
• To Pat Dignan ... for a well-planned and successful Dad’s
• To Dean William C. Jones and the administration fer
forthright statements backing the students on the telephone
• To Herb Cook ... for a positive move toward bringing
“Help Week” instead of “Hell Week” to Oregon fraternities.
• To Hoyt Trowbridge, his committee on sophomore honors
and the faculty senate... for instituting this program recog
nizing students’ ability to do advanced work, even though un
• To E. R. Bingham and E. G. Ebbighausen ... for their
active participation in the work of the ASUO Senate and the
honor code committee.
'All the Dirt That's Fit to Print'
While looking through some files the other day (we re not
permitted to say what or where) we unearthed a queer looking
newspaper of times gone by. They’ve been gone by ever since
the University administration banned the publication. It’s said
that during the banning journalism students fled every direc
tion like (if you’ll pardon the expression) rats leave a sinking
The newspaper was called The Green Goose. Quite likely
we’ve just committed libel by mere mention of the name.
Anyway, we realized what a pot of gold we’d dug up. Some
of the people who edited The Green Goose are still around the
campus but they aren’t students anymore. Unfortunately, none
of them happen to be professors of ours so we can t blackmail
them into a better grade.
Suffice it to say we’ve appropriated the green sheet and it
is now buried in a secret spot on the top of Skinner’s Butte.
We will be receptive to the proper offers.
The Green Goose was sensational journalism in its purest
form. It was dedicated to publishing all the dirt that’s fit
to print. It was a source of profit to its publishers, Sigma Delta
Chi, professional journalism fraternity. Some people will do
anything for money.
The history of The Green Goose is shrouded in secrecy. Ap
parently it was published only when the publishers thought
they could get awray with it. Finally they didn t. Dead Goose.
Sadder and wiser students.
We haven’t any motive for musing about The Suppressed
Goose except that it seems to have been a profit making ven
ture and profit making ventures usually interest us.
The Goose sold for five cents the copy. A reliable source
says that he used to walk down sorority row with a bundle of
Gooses under his arm and sell the girls one paper after another
just as fast as he could hand them out and pocket the money.
He was even womanhandled once or twice when he ran out
“One of the most profound lessons I ever learned,’’ he mum
bled. “It changed my whole life. And please don’t quote me. It
might change it again.”
For the record: We are not now, have never been, and never
expect to be in any way connected with a Green Goose. Not if
we had our own press and a ton of green newsprint. We like
red better.—B. C. •

Would the ASUO Senate Have to Outlaw AGS
Because of Conflict Between Constitutions?
- -:- By Jim Haycox --
Pretty soon they’re going to
make it so hard for “unwashed”
houses to get in AGS that the
outsiders won’t even bother to
At present a
house has to
wait a year

date for AGS
or ASUO of

year disciplinary period, mats a
Of course nobody can deny
they have every right to make
such a ruling. A party must be
able to whip its backsliders as
well as reward its faithful. But
the ruling does seem to defy the
spirit, if not the letter, of the
ASUO constitution which says
any enrolled student can run for
Apd AOS has been talking
about becoming a recognized
campus group. If they do, would
anybody bring up tills apparent
conflict between two constitu
tions? The senate, I suppose,
would have to outlaw AOS ... or
am I being politically, naive.
And there seems to be another
facet to the present discussion in
AGS. Some people think the re
maining USA houses, five or so
in number, are being gently
warned to come back now while
the medicine isn’t too strong.
They might be able to slip under
the wire, 'tis suggested.
But then I guess we haven’t
really seen anything yet. Soon as
the weather clears up a bit and
the political animal i.s fully
awake from his nap, the picture
is apt to become even more ac
tive. And if it follows the prece- .
dent of years past, you won’t he

whose" by late spring term.
I don’t consider Mr. funk's
“dim view of cam|HiN polities ...
extremely unjust.” The “dim
view” has pretty well Justified
itself in times past.
It is, they say, a principal reas
on behind the position USA per- j,

hind the attitude that says J
