Reporters: Howard Furlong and
Washington and Lincoln were
great men in the minds of most
American citizens. They are two
of the outstanding presidents in the
history of the United States. They
have given the American people an
impression of real leadership that
has not been excelled and probably
will not be for many years to come.
These two great men became presi
dent when the country was in tur
moil. Washington, as commander-in-chief
of the army and navy, led the
American troops to victory during
the Revolutionary War. He became
our first pres1' ent by the unanimous
vote of every person in the Union
at that time. He set the United
btates government on a sound fl-
nancial basis during his two terms
Lincoln became president during
the darkest time in our history, the
Civil War. He re-united the states
and freed the negroes when the
task seemed almost impossible. If
a man of Lincoln's type hadn't been
president at this time, it is hard to
say what might have happened to
These great men had two of the
same characteristics. They both
put the welfare of their country
above everything else. Both were
severely criticized during their life.
On the other hand, Lincoln came
from a family of very humble or
igin, while Washington was born
into a family of aristocrats.
These two men obtained their
popularity and greatness from their
honesty and their interest in the
people's welfare. We, too, can ac
quire popularity by our interest in
and helpfulness to our friends and
Looking back some two hundred
years, one sees the time when per
haps the greatest of American pa
triots lived. This man was George
Washington. His birthday is com
memorated all over the United
States today. He was not an un
usual person, but just a common
ordinary man. What, then, made
him so popular among his fellow
men? Washington was the Ideal man.
Not only was his patriotism well
known, but his character was also
applauded. He was kind-hearted.
He appealed to the common people
and was their leader.
His patriotism was unsurpassed.
Washington's love of country made
him one of the great patriots. Even
though he lived two hundred years
ago, Washington set an example
which lives today. His example
should be followed and carried on,
so the coming generations may
have It to guide them. Washing
ton had his faults, to be sure; but
his good points more than over
So we pay tribute to "The Father
of the Land We Love" by saying
if more of us were the George
Washingtons of today, our Coun
try would have something of which
to be proud.
Hohlsch Committee Holds Trial
At the assembly last Friday the
Hehisch committee held its first
trial. Lamoyne Cox was charged
with throwing things while attend
ing a recent basketball game. He
was summoned before the table of
the Hehisch committee by Serjeant-at-Arms
Howard Bryant who
read the charge to which Lamoyne
pleaded guilty. The committee
criticized Lamoyne for his miscon
duct by a questionnaire, each com
mitteeman asking him a question
concerning loyalty and obedience
to the school, to the student body,
and to the constitution. After hear
ing Lamoyne's answers the com
mittee adjourned, and on return
sentenced him to deliver a minute-
and-a-half apology to the student

Well Worn Advice
As I was saying last week ladies,
gentlemen and friends, also ene
mies, if I have any by now. Model
T. Fords are well known devices to
get a person over the ground, but
it is agreed by most people that they
sometimes run out of gas. While
gas is the topic of conversation,
take it before an operation, it will
do the most good then. If the op
eration should be mental take an
Asbestos is a good insulator for
fire or hot things why not try it
for a fever. If you havn't a fever
there's red pepper and other sub
stitutes. Speaking of substitutes,
it is a good idea to do your own
courting. She may take the sub
stitute for granted. Granite is a
good formation for buildings, but
not as good as glass for aquariums.
Also don't wait until you jump off
an aeroplane to discover you for
got the parachute. It would be a
good idea to take it with you; if
you doubt me, try it. You will find
that it drives easier after the first
pint. But when you see a bridge
coming, why, suit yourself whether
to turn out and let it go by or not.
If the bridge isn't good you had
better speak to the dentist about it.
Well, I'll be signing off for anoth

Spring Early in State
Eugene. Science now steps for
ward to corroborate what just
about everybody in this part of
Oregon has observed that spring
is at least a couple of months ahead
of schedule. Louis F. Henderson,
curator of the University of Ore
gon herbarium, who has been busy
the past few days adding blooms to
the collection here, has compared
dates on which he has gathered
blooming plants with the earliest
recorded dates, and while these
dates are not necessarily the ear-'
liest of their respective years, they
can at least be taken for average,
he points out.
A number of plants that ordinar
ily put forth blooms in the socalled
"spring" have been blooming all
winter, he has observed. The near
est approach to this year, 1934, oc
curred in 1926, according to data in
Hazel, (Carylus Rostrata Califor
nica) bloomed this year on Janu
uary 31, Mr. Henderson observed,

earliest previous bloom as March
