Three University men, Leo Potter and

service with the 162nd infantry band into

same time. Both expect to re-euter col
lege next fall. All three men were mem
bers of the University band.
Gassed on Trip Overseas.
The trip overseas in December, 1017,
was far from eventful according to Pot
ter. They were gassed on boar-d the
transport. “Two German spies who were
responsible, paid the penalty and were
probably shot at sunrise,” said Potter,
who has not yet entirely recovered from
the effects of the gas and may have to
leave Oregon to seek n drier climate.
Just outside of St, Nazaire they were
fired upon by a submarine which was
overtaken and sunk by. a sub-chnser.
‘‘That was a thrilling experience,” said
Croner, “when- we jumped into the

Their organization saw much of France

They were in Paris for a week in De

many of the world’s notables attending

Rev. W- Peterson at Hut Talks
on Dramatist’s “Emperor
An analogy was drawn between Julian,
the insane emperor in Ibsen's “Emperor
and Galilean” and Wilhelm Hohenzol
lern, ex-kaiser of Germany b.v Reverend
Wilhelm Petterson, pastor of a Norwe
gian oknroh in Portland in his lecture b«
fore members of the Eutaxian students of
the University and townspeople of Eu
gene at eight o’clock in the Y. M. C. A.
“Ibsen attempted in this drama, which
he considered his masterpiece,” said Mr.
Petterson, “to show the two great forces
which have quarreled through history,
the world and the church; the power of
the emperor and the power of God.” Ju
lian, Ibsen’s leading character in this
10-act historical drama, conceived himself
to be a superman whose will was su
preme, which idea, said Mr. Petterson,
is an insane ony and Julian was intensely,
vainly insane when he believed this.
Ibsen when he wrote this drama, con
tended the speaker, was auti German. He
aimed to point out the error of the times
and knew the idea, of the superman to
be an insane one. In another one of 1b
s'.n’s works, “The Murder of J.incoln,”
he refers to Germany as “the thousand
from the land of lies.” As few Europeans
did, he understood the American view
point at that time and had a keen insight
into American ideas.
The idea voiced by Ibsen through Jul
ian contained the philosophy of Nietszehe
A brief survey of the play was given
by Reverend Mr. Petterson preliminary
to the analogy drawn, outlining the char
acter of Julian somewhat in detail.
America’s Spirit Needed.
“In order to understand the meaning
of the struggle through which we have
just passed, caused by this insane idea
of one man it is necessary to inject the
spirit of America through the world,"
said Reverend Petterson, “for this spirit
has the power to destroy it.
“It is the greatest personal satisfac
tion to me,” concluded the speaker, “that
the hope of the world lies in spending
all that we mean by the spirit of Amer
ica, until all men are free and justice
reigns; until we have a brotherhood of
nations to march shoulder to shoulder,
