Emerald to Conduct Vote
on Adequacy of Judges’
Decision on Bok Award
Entrance of United States
In International Court
is Feature of Proposal
I. That the United States shall
immediately enter the perman
ent court of international justice,
under the conditions stated by
Secretary Hughes and President
Harding in February, 1923.
II. That without becoming a
member of the League of Na
tions as at present constituted,
the United States shall offer to
extend its present cooperation
with the League and participate
in the work of the League as a
body of mutual counsel under
conditions which
1. Substitute moral force and
public opinion for the military
and economic force originally im
plied in Articles X and XVI.
2. Safeguard the Monroe Doc
3. Accept the fact that the
United States will assume no ob
ligations under the treaty of Ver
sailles except by Act of Congress.
4. Propose that membership in
the League should be opened to
all nations.
5. Provide for the continuing
development of international law.
Students and faculty members of
the University are in this issue
called upon by the Emerald to vote
on the plan for peace selected by
the jury of the American peace
award. This plan, selected from
22,165 submitted in the competition
for the award of $100,000 offered
by Edward W. Bok, embodies what
the jury considers the most ap
plicable plan for the peace of the
world. The approval of the Am
erican people of the program out
lined is now the object of the Am
erican peace award, and every uni
versity and college in the United
States, as well as prominent journ
als and organizations, will be asked
to assist in this ballot.
Official ballots will also be placed
in the hands of every student and
faculty member, and the results of
the vote announced by the Emer
ald. University officials and stu
dent body officers are cooperating
in the plan, and a vote from every
one on the campus is expected.
Pamphlets containing the plan com
plete will be sent out and ballots
should be sent or mailed to the
Cooperation Urged
The plan, as here stated in brief,
provides for the United States to
enter a permanent court of inter
national justice, as outlined by Sec
retary Hughes and President Hard
ing in February, 1923, and that
without becoming a member, the
United States cooperate with the
League of Nations under certain
specified conditions.
The approval of the plan by the
American people means, very simp
ly, that this country will favor
world peace, while a rejection will
mean that in the judgment of the
majority, the world is not yet ready
for such a step, or that it is the
popular belief that war is inescap
able. The plan is conservative,
since it does not bind the United
States in any prohibitive way to
a set policy, and it is liberal in
that it does not force entrance into
any definite covenants nor bind
the United States to any other na
United States Safeguarded
The plan safeguards the United
States in every way at present, as
far as can be seen, and at the
same time it will give the Europ
ean and other nations a definite
statement of opinion from this
country. This mere statement
would aid greatly in crystalizing
chaotic conditions in certain sec
tions of Europe, and undoubtedly

And the hair manufacturers
howled and the fashion critics
roared but they still continue to

There’s no doubt about it—
these stern parents who have layed
down the law about having ‘ ‘ darl

just as well yield pleasantly, be
cause “sed daughter” is going to
be considered a back number if
she doesn’t have her hair cut in
the approved style of 1924.
“What worries me,” one un
sympathetic male was heard to re
mark, “is that each time they cut
it, they take a little more off.
Where are they going to stop?”
The longer the vacation, the
more shorn heads appear. Christ
mas week produced a total of
something over fifteen and a hair
cutting party is one of the most
popular pastimes among the sor
ority houses. A rushee is picked
nowadays, not for her ability to
eat her salad with the right fork,
but for her proficiency in bobbing
and shingling.

“The Hour Hand” -Will be
Presented January 31
The tickets for the Eugene pro
duction of “The Hour Hand”, a
Swiss folk-opera by Anne Landsbury
Beck, of the school of music, were
placed on sale yesterday at the var
ious living organizations on the
campus by Ted Killenwaters, mana
The opera will be presented in the
Heilig theatre, January 31, and the
price of tickets range from fifty
cents to one dollar. The first ten
rows downstairs are selling at one
dollar, and the last eight rows are
seventy-five cents. The first three
rows in the balcony are one dollar
and the last three rows are seventy
fifty cents. All seats must be Te
fifty cents. A1 lseats must be re
served, and for that reason tickets
should be purchased early. By writ
ing to the manager of the Eugene
Heilig theatre, inclosing return pos
tage, the tickets may be exchanged at
once for reserve sats. No war tax
will be charged.
Tickets may also be purchased at
Kuyktndall’s Drug company and at
the Co-op.
“The Hour Hand’’, without any
exception, is an all University pro
duction. Mrs. Beck, the composer,
is a member of the University of
Oregon school of music faculty.
Charles M. Bunyan who made the
interesting orchestrations has also
contributed some of the new choral
and solo numbers as well as some
fascinating orchestral material. The
thirty-five members of the cast are
all University students, and they are

Emil Jacques, Well Known
Belgian Painter, Acts as
Critic for Sculpture Work
Elimination of Awards Has
Developed Originality of i
Work, Belief of Dean
me jury day ot the term m the
school of architecture and allied arts
was given over to conferences of the
critics with the students. Emil
Jacques, Belgian painter, was the
critic for painting and sculpture,
and Nolan B. Zane, art instructor
at Jefferson high school, Portland,
was the critic for the normal arts.
W. G. Holford, Portland architect,
and partner of Dean Ellis F. Law
rence, in the firm of Lawrence and
Holford, gave the criticism for the J
architects’ work. Following the ar
chitecture criticism the men will fin
ish up their problems, carrying them
as far as possible. Each man had
to present his own problem and tell
his reasons for the treatment used.
Reception at Right
Each member of the jury was a
guest at luncheon of the particular
department for which he came. The
social part of the occasion termin
ated in a reception at 8 o’clock in
the evening to which all students,
faculty members and townspeople
were invited for the opening of the
exhibition of the paintings of Emil
Jacques. The exhibition will be open
to the public for the next two weeks.
Committees of students under the
direction of Mabs Breckon, president
of the Allied Arts league, had charge
of arrangements and refreshments.
Mr. Zane addressed the students
at 2:00 in the afternoon on princi
ples of applied design. He was es
pecially interested in the problem of
designing suitable tile for the floor
of the entrance of the arts building.
Olay Models Commended
“The students seem to sense the
problem accurately,” Mr. Zane said
when interviewed. “It is one of the
adaptability and appropriateness of
design to the material already there.
The main difficulty is relating the
whole corridor as it stands to the
spirit of gothic glass already in
stalled. There is a question arising
as to whether the construction lends
itself to gothic treatment through
out. The tile must be the keystone,
and tie the two together.”
The use of clay models by the ar
chitecture students was commended
by Mr. Holford as one of the best
ways of showing the student errors
which are not apparent at once in
drawings because the third demen
sion is lacking.
“Discrepancies in scale and ar
rangement can easily be pointed
out,” Mr. Holford stated. “Pro
portions and relationships can be
shown, and defects of treatment re
Freedom in Design
The use of the clay models was
intended to give the students a
chance to carry out one building or
group. There were no awards or
mentions this term, and will be none
in the future, according to Dean
Ellis F. Lawrence, of the school of
architecture and allied arts. The

Finance of Trade Would
be Weakened by Control
Through Student Body
History of Store Reviewed;
Book Prices are Same as
At Eastern Universities
At the executive council meeting
last night, the finance committee
recommended that the Co-op store
should not be changed and made
a part of the A. S. U. O. The pre
sent status was investigated and
declared the most satisfactory.
There has been a good deal of
agitation of late, in favor of making
the Co-op a part of the A S. U. O.,
so the finance committee prepared
a statement and looked into the
advisability of such a move. The
committee reported that the taking
tver of the Co-op by the A. S. U. O
would weaken the credit of the
store which must at times carry
i $45,000 stock.
First Co op in 1916
The first Co-op store, in 1916, was
oaned $2,000 at six percent by the
A S. U. O. At the end of two
rears the student body, which had
within that time, advanced the Co
>p $4,000, found itself financially
smbarrassed, without money to pay
;he back salary of the football
‘oach. Conditions were uncertain
because of the war, so the Co-op
was sold.
Two years later the present Co
)p was formed. It was made sep
irate from the A. 8. U. O. because 1
;lie student body could not finance
t and secondly to prevent its being
lold as the first one had been. The
irst board of directors elected Mr.
McClain as manager of the store,
with authority to borrow sufficient
noney to star! it by the fall of
A year later it was found that ,
he store had not sufficient capital
;o operate on, so the University
■Supply company was formed. This
■ompany, in the form of a corpora
;ion, has lent money to the Co-op
itore at eight percent. Stockhold
irs in this company have no con
sol over the policies of the Co-op.
Accounts in Good Shape
The committee found the ac
counts of the store to be kept in
in up-to-date manner. The prices
•barged for books are the regular
ist price used in the east, at Har
vard and at Yale. This price aver
iges 20 percent profit to the dealer,
rhe yearly text book stock of about
M2,000 costs $1,200 to be laid
lown in Eugene and the cost of
doing business is about 20 per cent
if the net sales. Thus, if it were
not for the other lines carried the
Co-op would actually lose money.
The main business for which the
Co-op exists is to provide text books
for the students. The committee
called attention to the incon
veniences suffered before the in
stallation of the Co-op. The sup- f
plies of the local dealers were so J
small that special orders had to be J
placed and many classes were de- ’
layed. !
Plan to Force Joining
The idea was suggested of making)
the Co-op membership compulsory 1
for every member of the student i
body and fixing the membership fee ,,
it 50 cents, to be collected at the j
time of registration. In this plan ,
i guarantee would be made of a ,
minimum dividend of 50 cents to
be paid each member at the end of
the year.
The committee’s reasons for the;
plan were that the fifty cent mem j
bership idea would clear up the ,
question of what becomes of the j
dollar now paid for membership,
since the same amount would be
refunded at the end of the year.
Further dividends would be ap
portioned on the present basis, of i
percentage of the purchases of each
member. In three years the Co-op j
has collected approximately $2,200
from membership which has been
carried direct to surplus, and it has
paid out in dividends to members

Student Scores Stand Taken by Paul Harrison
at Minneapolis Convention; Nation Has to

By Leonard Lerwill
W hen Dr. Paul Harrison, the
Apostle of the Desert, at the re
cent student volunteer convention
in Indianapolis, tried to tear down
the distinction which nature has
drawn between' the races of the
earth, he succeeded in placing a
tremendous stumbling block in the
way of a solution of the racial prob
lef by that gathering. It is not
necessary to forget the fact that
a negro is a negro, or that a China
man came from China, or that the
Anglo-Saxon has certain character
istics of his own in order to keep
the peoples of the earth from fly
ing at each other’s throats.
“If a man is willing to be a
member of a fraternity that won’t
admit Chinese students to its mem
bership because of their color, there
is no point in his criticism of Brit
ish administration in India, or
French administration of Syria,”
declared this medical missionary to
Arabia in his address to the con
vention, according to the account
published in yesterday’s Emerald.
Mr. Harrison might just as well
Have said that unless a man was
married to a Chinese woman he
has no right to attempt to under
stand the Boxer uprising.
Because nature has placed the
various races of mankind together
on earth is no indication that they
have to mingle with one another
in the most intimate relations un
less they so desire. It is perfectly
possible for justice to be done to
both the white and black race and
at the same time for each to keep
its own society and tend to its own

Worker to Give Conditions
of Stricken Land
E. T. Colton who addresses the
assembly this morning in Villard
hall on the subject, of “The Present
Trend in Russia ’ ’ is one of the best
informed men on Russian conditions
recording to those who know him
and know his work. He recently re
turned from spending tayo years in
;hat country.
While in Russia, Mr. Colton han
iled the organization of student re
lief under the Student Friendship
Fund. He worked in conjunction
with the American Relief association
which was organized by Herbert
Hoover. In connection with his re
lief work Mr. Colton was able to see
nuch of Russia and to make a care
ful study of conditions there.
Mr. Colton is a member of the in
ternational committee of the Y. M.
C. A. and during the war was con
nected with the Y. M. work among
the expiditionary forces. He spent
most of his time with the American
forces in Russia. Since then he has
been four times a representative of
American relief organizations in that
While speaking in Portland at a
luncheon of business men, Mr. Colton
said of Russia, “Conditions at the
present look almost hopeless to the
casual observer, but through it all
is a conception of liberty almost un
known to the average American. To
put Russia on its feet is a matter of
time. Until that is accomplished,
through the influence of the younger
generation, there is little hope of
anything but disorder and poverty.”
Mr. Colton is traveling over the
country in the interest of the Amer
ican Friendship Fund and will help
'he committee which is handling the
work of this organization. This
fund which is raised by students and
teachers in this country is devoted to
assisting students in those countries
affected bv the war. Russian stu
dents and professors and those who
compose the educated class of that
country have especially suffered from
privation because of the war, and
much relief has been sent these peo
ple through the Friendship Fund.
While in Portland Mr. Colton ad
dressed the Medical school and Reed
college. He also has spoken at Pa
cific university and is scheduled to
speak at O. A. C. and the state nor
mal school.
Donald Wilkinson, a Sigma Xi
and a graduate of last year froir
the physics department here, left
last night for the University oi
California. Ho has a teaching fel
lowship there, conducting several
courses in physics. Mr. Wilkinson
stayed at Friendly hall while or
the campus.
All Parts of State to be
Well Represented ■
Delegates to the conferences of ]
high school editors and managers, j
student body officers, and girls’ (
league heads, will begin arriving to- ,
day. From all parts of the state (
delegates will pour in, attracted by ■
the comprehensive program prepared j
for them for the two-day session.
Though the actual numbers attend
ing the mettings will be less than a
year ago, the conferences in point ;
of representation of schools will have ’
doubled their growth, from present
indications. Last year about 40 of
the high schools of Oregon took an
i interest in what the University had <
to offer. This year between 70 and
80 such schools have promised to
send representatives. j
Cooperation from the University {
as a whole to make the conference j
successful is urged by the committee j
of which John Piper is chairman, j
Ray Harlan is handling the housing ]
of the visitors. He has secured co- j
operation of the campus living or- .
ganizations .to provide room for them ,
during the two day’s stay. With ,
the aid of the halls of residence it j
is expected that no organization, ex- t
cept possibly the larger ones, will ;
be asked to care for more than six ,
guests. In order that the assigning
of them as they arrive be facilitated,
each organization is asked by the ,
registration managers to have at the ;
administration building registration
booth a representative to receive the
charges of their respective houses.
These persons should be on hand
most of the afternoon today, and
Friday morning.
The program for the sessions of
the editors and managers, the pres
idents of student bodies, and the re
presentatives of girl’s leagues is
now completed. Each one of these

First Game of Season is
Scheduled With Badgers
in Armory at 7:15 p. m.
Latham, Gowans, Rockhey,
Shafer and Chapman to
Compose Oregon Team
This evening at 7:15 at the
Armory, the Lemon-Yellow quintet
will swing into action against the
Badgers from Pacific university, in
their initial appearance on the
homo floor. This is also the first
Oregon tussle on the Northwest
Conference calendar. During the
past week “Bill” Reinhart has
been putting the first string can
didates through their paces in a
strenuous manner and although the
squad is not in the shape that made
it so formidable last year, it
promises to be a scrappy, fast pass
ing aggregation.
Visitors Are Strong
Little information is available on
Coach Franks’ outfit, but the men
are for the most part old-timers
and should offer real competition for
the varsity. Those who have seen
Badger teams in past years will
vouch for the fact that Coach Leo
puts out scrappy outfits that will
tackle any odds.
It is probable that Oregon’s of
fense will center around Hunk
Latham, Oregon’s representative on
the All-Coast five, although the big
boy has not yet made a complete •
transition from football trim to
the indoor sport, which requires a
vastly different sort of training.
Chappy is another who will not be
in anything like his usual basket
ball trim for the same reason.
Oregon TeAm Given
Gowans and Rockhey will prob
ably be the forward combination
which will start this evening’s
struggle. Gowans, with a year’s
varsity experience and the addition
of several pounds of beef, which
means added stamina, ought to be
Oregon’s mainstay in the forward
Latham will start at center, while
last year’s guard combination,
Shafer and Chapman, will be back
in the harness, defending Oregon’s
goal. Both of these men are good
shots and close checkers, and should
be a tough problem or any of
fense to solve. There is a pos
sibility that Chappy may be held
out of tonight’s fracas on account
of his knee, which is still weak
from the smash he got in football
season. Hobby Hobson will prob
ably draw the assignment for the
other guard in case Chapman is re
legated to the bench.
The Red Shirts will have Tucker
and Emerson in the forward berths,
Balcom at the pivot, and Black
man and Adams at guards.
Seating is Same
The seating facilities in the
Armory will be the sam,e as in
past seasons with the first two rows,
both upstairs and down, reserved
for the townspeople. A section to
the left of the entrance will be
reserved for the band, while the en
tire west-end bleachers will be set
aside or the feminine contingency.
