Washington Man Fires Hot 8hots at
Would-be Tradition Makers.
The University of Washington stu
dents and some of the faculty have
been rocontly searching for traditions.
It is asserted that thoso aro nodded
to give Washington a "collogo spirit."
Some of the faculty don't agroo. The
following from the Dally Wave re
lates tho latcBt In tho casos:
"There Is a lamontablo lack of tra
ditions in the UnlvofBlty of Washing
ton. They should bo multitudinous
since during one month Tho Dally
Wave announces the 'Inauguration' of
no less than six traditions. What has
become of tho babies?" Tho above Is
the editorial note at tho head of an
article In tho Novotnbor Alumnus, on
tltlod "Horn A Tradition." The ar
ticle Is written by Jool .lohanson, '03,
and in part Is as follows:
Tradition implies, Ilrst of all, re
spect for the past and Unit Is tho
very essential point that has boon
overlooked In all tho sporadic at
tempts to foster tho growth of tradi
tion in the university.
Tho crazo Is to ilnd something now,
something unusual, something strango;
to do something never done in tho
previous history of the university;
to originate something and label it
"Tradition" and then to llo back, fond
ly hoping It will become so in fact.
But the noxt class is equally ambiti
ous; It promptly rejects this, searches
In turn for tho original idea, which
In turn Biiffors tho same oxperlonco.
"It was onco my good fortuno to
attend for throo years a foreign uni
versity, noted the world ovor for Its
extreme conservatism and for Its
wealth" of traditions. I found on my
arrival thoro that evon its vory llfo
was aradltional. Nearly all tho cus
toms of dally llfo woro Inexplicable
to me until, examining Into tho IiIb
tory of tho university, I found there
the origins of all thoso strango cus
toms. With the studonts It waB mere
ly a matter of following in tho foot
steps of their predecessors without
questioning 'Why?' or 'Wherefore?'
"In all the three years that I spent
in this university, however, I never
once heard the word 'Trudltlon' men
tioned. 1 imagine that In most col
leges where thero are traditions there
is little said about them. But among
the students of our university a great
deal ol talk' about traditions seems
to make up for a lack of them.
"It were far bettor to drop tho
word 'Traditions' from tho collogo vo
cabulary and glvo up tho mado-whllo-you-walt
Idea. Endeavor sincerely to
retain tho customs that we have; re
vive some of the good customs that
were onco observed In the university,
Ad thus, by observing a due respect
for the past, In turn obtain rospect
fiom tho future."
by Mrs. Evolyn Wright Allan, dean of
tho women students of tho university.
As a consequence tho co-ods nro up In
haughty arms at what they call an
attack on their privileges, tholr dignity
and their taste.
Following are tho rulos to bo ob
served by the co-ods at Stanford as
laid down to them by Mrs. Allan:
1. Women studonts must not ap
pear on the quad or about tho uni
versity buildings wearing frou frou
2. Light dresses, and particularly
"peek-a-boo" waists, should not bo
worn at university exorcises.
It. Women students must not wear
hosiery of light or pastel shades.
1. Men and women studentB must
not stroll together in tho evening In

clubs must be extinguished by 10
o'clock every evening.

The university authorities will take
a decided stand on tho question of

student roomers and register at tho
information bureau. Proofs of a con
tract agreement, which all such pro
prietors will bo compelled to Blgn,

way that the flat keepers co-operate
with the university In making the

One of the striking features of the
instructions Is that they insist on
comfort for women. Thoy require
that reception room accommodations
be furnished the women students, so
that they may have callers.
Further exhibition of the university
attitude In favor of segregation Is
demonstrated In the provision that
men and women should not be taken
In at the same house.
It is asked of thoso who enter their
rooms in the register, that thoy agree
to look out for tho moral welfare of
the students. Just what this meant

A rather unusual meeting was held
Wednesday evening by the engineer
ing socloty of the university. Pro
fessor George Howard, head professor
of the department of political science
and sociology of tho University of Ne
braska, addressed tho socloty on the
subject. "The Place of the Engineer in
Society." The meeting wns held in
Science hall of the Temple, and a
large gathering or engineers was in
This meeting is only one of a large
number that are being held this year
by the engineering society. Tho meet
ings aro usually addressed, however,
by professional engineers, who give
the society the benefit of tho Informa
tion they have learned through long
practical oxperlonco. Among such men
was tho superintendent of tho Lin
coln Gas company, who recently ad
dressed the society.
Engineers Are Present.
A large attendance of engineers
heard Doctor Howard speak. At tho
mooting was given under tho auspices
of tho Engineering socloty and tho
subject was engineering in its nature,
tho audience was largoly composed of
engineering professors and studonts.
Dr. Howard was Introduced by Mr.
Fulton, president of the Engineering
society, and spoke for about an hour.
Dr. Howard declared that he had
the highest respect for the engineer,
the man who was practical and could
work with his hands. The engineers
who are forced to bravo great dangers
to build such great works as trans
continental railroads aro the heroes
that are not heard of.
Dr. Howard discussed tho advisa
bility of an engineering studont at
tempting to take oloctric work out
side of tho department, and declared
that as conditions are at tho present
time It Is not advisable. It Is better
for the enginer to stick to his course.
Thero Is a tendency, however, In tho
high schools of the state to do prep
aratory work that under present con
ditions must be done at the university.
It Is the plan of tho engineering so
ciety to hold meetings every two
weeks at which engineering subjects
will be discussed. These meetings aro
usually well attended and show tho in
terest which engineers are taking in
