REGON Emerald VOL. 20 EUGENE, OREGON, THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 17,1919 NO. 66 LEAGUE COVENANT FAULTY, IN OPINION OF MR. HAWLEY Believes Universal Peace Under Present Draft of Document Impossible IMMIGRATION IS INCLUDED Says Domestic Policies Should Be Left to Individual Nations The nations of the world cannot be bound together by the draft now under consideration for a constitution, ac cording to the opinion expressed by Representative W. C. Hawley when he addressed the students of the Univer sity and a number of townspeople on “A League to Enforce Peace” at the assembly hour on Wednesday. After careful study Mr. Hawley has reached the conclusion that a document so weak in phraseology and indefinite in mean ing could never bring about and main tain universal peace. “If out of all this downfall we can not derive some blessing for the future as a necessary compensation for those who have mac^e the .supreme sacri fice it will be most unfortunate,” said the speaker. “In my judgement we must either have a League of Na tions or a great standing army. One of these things appears to be inevita ble. I am in favor of a League of Nations, but no document drafted by a man or set of men, no matter how sincere, that tends to take from the people of the United States their rights and privileges shall be the constitution of that League.” Better Document Must Appear “No body of men ever yet lived who had all the wisdom of mankind,” said the Congressman, but he expressed the belief that a much wiser and more definite and democratic document must and can be written. Every word must have its exact and definite meaning decided by court. The methods of ap pointment for each office with the duties and powers of that office stated, the position and powers of each nation in comparison to the other nations should be mentioned in the constitu tion. The question as to whether or not the individual nations shall manage their own domestic affairs and the League govern only in national mat ters should be settled. Mr. Hawley hastily reviewed the document as it now stands, dwelling on the alleged weakness of several points, all of which he believes must be made strong before the League can possibly become effective. The draft proposes twenty-eight nations in uni son, with an executive council of nine men. The five recognized great na tions of the world are the United States, Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan. “These men will hold the peace of the world in their own dis cretion or indiscretion, ’ ’ said the speaker, “no one knows how they are to be appointed; how long they will serve or how they shall vote.” President, World’s Leading Man “After the League has been estab lished—and I believe in a League of Nations—the representative from the United Sta'tes will be the second most important man in the world. Our president is the first. The people ought to know how this representative is to be appointed or elected. Will the second man in the world be ap pointed by our president and sanc tioned by the Senate or will he be elected by the people? We do not know. “One of the most notable things has been the question of the Monroe Doct rine,” said Mr. Hawley. After outlining the instances in the past when the doctrine has been applied, he asked, “Shall the Monroe Doctrine be thrown into the scrap heap and the council make the decisions? What shall be done? Shall we let this policy that has been tried and that has worked so well be thrown aside and pass out of the hands of the original friends of (Continued on Page Three) Dean Allen Buys It Down Town and Wears It To Campus Dean Allen sprung a surprise on the campus yesterday. In which feat Dean Allen was only passing along the surprise, for he had just received one himself. But that is another story. The Dean appeared on the campus with a cane, which he had purchased down town—which appearance was much to the surprise of the oldest cam pus inhabitants, none of whom recalled anything of the sort in his past his tory. Dean Straub, who has been here since 1878 and has seen many canes come and go—but that, too, is another story. Dean Allen went home with the cane slung over his arm, careless-like. How ever, this latest addition to his person ality was noted by Mrs. Allen and the little Allens. Just what happened further has not yet come to the ears of the Emerald reporters, who, according to the K. K. K. press agent, are marvels of persist ence and inquisitiveness. However, it may be added—Dean Allen came down to the campus today without the cane. TO DRAW MHO “Androcles” to be a Scream; Lion’s Identity Not Yet Made Known Costumes and stage committees have been working in Guild hall all week in preparation for Friday and Saturday nights, when “Androcles and the Lion,” Bernard Shaw’s screaming bur lesque, will be staged by the “Com pany,” with all the art and finish that limited time and student talent will allow. The box office at Guild Hall opened this morning and according to Norvell Thompson, in charge, the com edy will undoubtedly be shown before a full house. As yet the mystery of the ‘ ‘ Lion ’ ’ is unsolved and although campus gossip has attached the honor to several prom inent dramatic students no one outside the cast is really certain. Friday night the secret will be divulged, and the Saturday night audience will go to the performance prepared to recognize the ‘ ‘ beast. ’ ’ Evelyn Smith is in charge of the cos tuming and has working with her Lil lian Auld and Gwladys Bowen. Hos tesses for the performance will be Theressa Cox, Gladys Diment, Frances Stiles and Ruth Young. Norvell Thomp son is stage manager, and William Re bec is stage electrician.

FOR HOME CONCERT OR FRIT EVENING Versatility to> be Displayed in Program of Songs and Stunts If you have ever sat and listened to the harmony of trained male voices blended in a program of unusual ver satility ranging from heavy chorus work to dashing vaudeville, you can guess what the Men’s Glee club con cert at the Eugene theater tomorrow night is to be. Various towns which the club visited on the spring vaca tion tour have painted glowing pictures of the success of the concert, and tes timony from John Stark Ejans, direc tor, shows that the production will be good. ‘ ‘ There was excellent material to work with this year,” said Mr. Evans, “and the boys have worked hard to put on a good concert.” Posing as Henrico Caruso, Arthur Johnson, tenor, will give a perfect im personation of that famous singer. ‘‘Singa da Carus” is the name of the monologue, and it’s sure to get over, say members of the club. ‘‘Rarebits” to be Feature Another witty monologue called ‘ ‘ Rarebits ’ ’ will be carried out by George Doust, a clever comedienne of Salem.

Jay Butler and William Beck defended the U club, while “Jack” Askey and Kenneth Smith won the match for the Delts. The Delt men look like possible champions, but they are going to find some stiff com petition when they play the Oregon club and the Betas. The Betas liaye not been seen in action yet, but with George Beggs and Forrest Watson on their team they would have a chance for the honors. Faculty team No. 2 won their game from Bill Cummings and Joe Ingram, who played for the Phi Delts. The fac ulty team of Larreinore and Warner put up a stiff game, but the Phi Delts held them to a 6-3, 6-3 score.

Well, Anyway, It Was Some Noise While It Lasted It was one o ’clock. All the good Chi Omegas were in bed. All the others were in bed too. Suddenly the whole house awoko with a start. “Good Heavens! What on earth is that noise!’’ they asked one another. A weird, scratching, shrieking sound permeated everywhere. It continued for about two minutes and finally died out in a blaze of noise. The Chi Ome gas looked about in a startled manner. There was silence for a few seconds and the noise broke out again. At the Theta house, the Alpha Phi house, and even the Sigma Nu house, the noise awoke the inmates. It sounded like a cross between a siren and the breaking up of a hard winter. For a half hour it continued intermittently, and finally died away for good. The next day frenzied calls to the police department and Lo Zengo La Snoope, the Emerald sleuth, set the wheels of investigation in motion. It was afternoon before La Snoope un earthed the mystery. He was walking in front of Villard hall when he himself heard the weird noise. By the time he managed to get control of his nerves and stop himself, he was near Spring field. With indomitable courage and horoic self-sacrifice, he made his way slowly tb the heart of the noiBe. As he neared the Sigma Chi house a look of comprehension spread over his intelli gent face. He understood. The whole Sigma Chi personnel was on the front porch, each faco beaming with a sort of parental pride. In the center of the group, worshipped as a shrine, was a new jazz phonograph. The city authorities decided to allow them to keep their now toy, after they had promised to purchase the most soft toned needles obtainable, and to refrain from using it after dark.

I know the stu dents in Sigma Delta Phi are young women of fine University standing and I have no doubt of the success of their plans. ’ ’ The officers are: Alice Hamm, of Eugene, president, and Anna Vogel, of Coburg, secretary and treasurer.

MULTNOMAH NINE TO HRING SEMI-PRO TALENT SATURDAY Former Interscholastic Baseball Stars Included in Port land Lineup “SHY” EXPECTS HARD GAME Wilson to Do the Pitching and Leslie to be on the Receiv ing End for Oregon The University of Oregon baseball team will clash with the Multnomah Amateur Athletic club nine on Ceme tery ridge next Saturday afternoon at 2:30. The game will be the first real contest of the season in which the var sity will meet a strong team and one that knows baseball. The game this week should give “Shy” and the stu dents a chance to see the team in ac tion and to compare their playing with that of a seasoned team. The Multnomah club team has an abundance of Portland semi-pro talerit on their roster and are planning on a season without any chalk marks in the lost column. Many of the men playing for the club are former Portland in terscholastic stars and are igell known in Portland baseball circles. Among those who are pastiming with the fast Portland team are such players aa Hughie McKenna, former short stop for Columbia university; Girth Cole, former Lincoln star, and a number of others. Probable Lineup Given ‘ ‘ Shy ” is' expecting a hard game with the Multnomah team and does not consider that his team will have every thing its own way. The battery for the club nine has not been announced but they are Reported to have excep tional strength in these two depart ments. Some of the men on the visiting team have just returned from service and are playing better ball than ever before. “Chief” Wilson will probably start the gamo for Oregon and Eddie Durno may get a chance on the mound before the afternoon is over. “Jiggs” Les lie is expected to do the receiving for the varsity as Durno will probably not be used behind the bat. “Herm” Lind will be stationed at fi«t base for the varsity, and second will be taken cere of by either “Billy” Mor rison of “ Desertsneaker ” Camp bell. At short the varsity will have “Billy” Rhinehart, who will show for the first time since returning to col lege. Johnny Houston is slated tip take third. Houston is showing well as a fielder at the third station but as a hitter he simply is not present. Gamble Strong Batter In the outfield there will be ‘*Ever ready ’ ’ Gamble and ‘ ‘ Dot ’ ’ Medley and probably either Campbell or Morrison. Huntington has not announced just who will take the third place in the outfield, but it is expected that who ever does not take the second base job will be found gambling in the outer garden. On the varsity team there will be at least three batters who should get busy in the Saturday game. They are: ‘ ‘ Herm ’ ’Lind,* ‘ Dot ’ ’ Medley and John ny Gamble. Gamble's strong point is that he can bat from either side of the plate, making him as effective against left hand pitchers as he is against right. Other strong batters on the team are Rhinehart and Campbell. Mor rison is valuable in that he draws more free transportation than any other man on the team. Campbell is one of the best sacrifice hitters that “Shy” has around the lot. MISS KELLEMS IN NEW POST Vivian Kellenm, '18, has recently accepted a position at a salary of seventy-five dollars a week with the ; Salvation Army to solicit funds for a . drive that is being made in the South. Her headquarters are at Montgomery, Alabama. Miss Kellems has been with theoBadcliffe Chautauqua bureau since December.
