A PLEA. '
President Seeley, of Amherst, ia quoted
as ssying that every msn wbo writes for bis
college paper lowers bis scholarship. Thia
atatement fiom such a man a President
Seely can but make one pause a moment iu
bl work. Tb question Las often ariaen in
our minds, "does our society column pay ."'
There I a pric act on everything we obtain
In this world, and aom things ar not worth
lb time and strength given to them W
hold that lb Eutsxian column ia not worth
ita pric. In tb first plac there is no mem
ber of tb lociety that should give ber atten
tion to tbi work. Other thing's require all
tbe time. Ourex-editorawillat leaat agree
with na ber. I (car if th record were ex
amined ber that it would prove tbe state
ment of President Seely sfl too true. There
is aa much work in tbe regular courses as
auy on should do. One may , slide along
aud even bt abla lo niaka recitation with
comparatively little labor, but to reach any
depth ol a subject, to become iu any degreu
master o( il means careful, earnest toll. If
a student has surplus lime he should us it
for recreation. Every on knows the result
of confinement and over work. Then to be
frankafter tbe lime spent ou the column
of what value ia it? Doe it iucreas tbe
knowledge of any one? or doe it even in
terest auy one? I vouchsafe if the citizens
of Eugene wer asked to give their opiuiou
of tbe Eutaxian column many would say
tbey prefer to read tb advertisements. But
be tbat as is may, every one concedes that
a little well done ia of more value than a
great deal attempted, and the lime used iu
wilting for the column would far better be
nsed on tb regular lesson. W repeat our
atatement lb column is not worth the price.
Suiter Eutaxiana consider tbia question, and
consider it carefully. Will it not b butter
to abolish thi department? Tbe question
doublle will be igitated at our next elec
tion. Ar yon ready to decide the question
lo tb beat interests ot all concerned?
