MUST BE NO QUESTION OF LOYALTY
Allen H. Eaton, Instructor in art appreciation in the University, announces
that tonight he will make a complete statement in answer to the chargee
made against him hy the Eugene Chamber of Commerce in a resolution de^
manding that he he dismissed from the faculty of the University. Upon his
ability to explain hts presence at the meeting of the People’s Council of De
mocracy and Terms of Peace, held in Chicago contrary to orders isued by
the governor of that state, rests the decision of whether or not Mr. Elaton
should be retained as a member of the faculty.
That Mr. Eaton did not represent the University of Oregon, the peoole
of Lane county, or the State of Oregon at the Chicago meeting makes little
difference. Mr. Eaton did attend the Chicago meeting, the meeting of an
organization which would handicap the President in his prosecution of the
war. He atended as a dele gate. Tills much he admits. Such being the
case, Mr. Eaton must have affiliated himself with the members of that league
and, unless he has since withdrawn, must still be a member of the organi
zation which was perfected during the short space of time the meeting was
in session. What the status of that league may be need not be discussed
it will suffice to say that hy loyial Americans it is looked non as traitorous
and its members as lacking in the one essential to he looked for in full meas
ure in all Americans at this time, patriotism.
Mr. Eaton pleads that his patriotism and accord with tell Preesident’s views
and actions are as sincere as those of any American and in any light sa\*o
that of the present situation, no student of the University would entertain
the slightest doubt or Ills loyalty. To the University, with which he Iras
been intimately connected for nearly twenty years, and from which he grad
uated in 1902, ho has been loyal in every emergency. Until this occasion
thero lias been no room to doubt his patriotism as an American. To none
of his friends has this occurrence brought more concern than to the students
at the University, who have learned to appreciate Mr. Eaton for what he has
meant to them and for Ills championship of the University at all times.
Students of the University are more than willing to hear any explanation
which Mr. Eaton lias to offer—they are eager that lie may clear himself
of the clyirgea that have been brought against him. But the student body,
which lias given 250 of its best men to the service of the country, are not
satlsfld with the reasons Mr. Eaton has given, up to this time, for his at
tendance at the Chicago meeting.
However, it Is not Mr. -Eaton's task to satisfy the students of the UnU
vorsity. With them it. is partly a matter of seeing a frieed clear his- name
of the stain which follows such charges. Mr. Eaton must either satisfy the
people of Oregon that lie is heart and soul behind the President in the pros
ecution of the war, or ho must sever ills connection with the University fac
ulty. Thero must be no shadow of doubt as to the attitude! of the University
of Oregon towaards the war.
