The R. O. T. C. and the Next War
Two years ago certain persons and factions on the Oregon
campus made a strong assault on the justification for reten
tion of the Jteserve Officers’ Training Corps. If these forces
were on the campus today, they might find themselves forced
to retrench. For today the corps iias been popularized more
than at any time since the signing of the armistice, and the
developments of international affairs have hushed the objec
tors and served to prove the existence of the military depart
Various students enrolled in advanced military Courses,
when asked if they believed they were wasting their time, re
plied emphatically in the negative, and stated they did not in
tend to be left in the lurch when the next war was declared.
They intended to take advantage, so they said, of the oppor
tunities afforded now, So as to be prepared for any trend of
The next war! There are many students of history and
public affairs who support the foreboding of a future inter
national imbroglio. The economic terms upon which thfe last
struggle was settled have not been satisfactory. France looms
as a military force. Fven in England there has been a lingering
transfer of sentiment from pro-French to pro-German. For
some Englishmen cite the French and Belgian occupation of
the liuhr as one contributing cause of the destruction of her
foreign export markets and of the accompanying unemployment
Futhermore, German militarism is not dead. Certain en
thusiasts in Germany are calling upon the patriotic element to
steel its muscles against the coming war of vengeance. And
General 1 lasso, commanding troops in Thuringia has said:
“When the fates again lead the German nation to Versailles, we
must appear not as on the' latest occasion, but as our fathers
and forefathers did. If is tor us, the heirs of the traditions of
the best army of the world, to see that our German empire out
li ms the shameful peace.’’
How characteristic are these words we can only guess. But
even such statements coming from a militarist indicate that
the embers ol war are not yet ashes, and that certain sentiment
is breathing into them the glow of activity.
There either will be or will not be another war. Who can
say for sure/ 'I hose who will take no chances avail themselves
of the military training offered at the present,. Perhaps they
are wiser than those optimists who believe that the advent of
the league of nations and the world court has solved all world
Thirteen Days— Lucky or Unlucky?
Thirteen school days arc all that stand between the 1*175
Oregon students now on the campus and winter term examina
tions. A short period of the scholastic round, and then that
dire week which never loses its terrors for many campus citi
From a fellow journalist we have received the following, on
the approaching day of reckoning:
“Lent, observed by many Christians, comes at this time of
year. Lent is the time above and beyond all others when the
individual is called upon to take a spiritual accounting. Many
believe that a voluntary abandonment of some of the frivolities
of every-day life during the forty days preceding Faster is
condneive to a better taking of the spiritual inventory.
“May we not borrow somewhat from the religious life to
aid the student? Two weeks before 'exams’ is set aside by the
administration as a time when activities and social affairs shall
be reduced to a minimum and the garnered time devoted to
additional scholastic demands.
“Yet two or three weeks is not too soon to start ‘training’
physically for examinations. Approximately more regular
hours, less sweets and starches, a few less cigarettes—and one
stands a ten to one better chance of going over the blue-book
top with a bang!
“Increasingly the statement is heard on the campus, ‘No, I
never cram for exams any more. The day before I take a hike
or loaf, and sometimes go to a ‘movie’ iff the evening. I feel
lots better and get higher grades as a result.’
“Ralph Waldo Emerson says of the Oxford system: ‘The
logical English train a scholar as they train an engineer * * *
The reading men are kept, by hard walking, hard riding and
measured eating and drinking, at the top of their condition,
and two days before the examination, do not work, but lounge,
ride, or run. to be fresh on the college doomsday.’ ”

Trophy Will he Awarded
The championship game of the
women's basketball series will be
played between the senior first
team ami the freshmen, team 1,
Thursday afternoon at 5 o'clock.
The team winning this game will
come into possession of the basket

was presented in ISM l by Bill Hay

graduating class has held it.
The game Thursday will be an
exciting one, for the teams are
evenly matched. When they met
once before, a few weeks ago, the

narrow margin. This will probably
be the very best game of the

What looks good about the wrest
ling situation is tha.t four men have
won letters so far this season, Whit
comb, Robertson, Ford and Wells be
ing the lucky athletes. Wrestling is
one of the hardest sports there is in
which to win a letter. A man must
take his match to win an award.
AYhere Oregon has four men this sea
son with letters, in the three preced
ing seasons it had only one, Wegner.
The varsity men are becoming
more aggressive than they were at
the start of the season, and we may
hope for a better fighting team than
that which faced the experienced
Aggie matmen some time ago.

The perennial favorites, Kolb and
Dill, without whom no theatrical year
would be complete, are coming to
night to the Ileilig in a new play by
Aaron Hoffman, called “A Big Ho
ward. ” •
Kolb, the long, lean member of|
the team, plays Frederick Brandt, a_
gay “man about town,” while Dill,
his roly-poly associate in fun, is seen
as a smart waiter in a big New York
hotel. The eternal conflict through
out between the pair provides a maxi
mum of laughter which continues
during the entire play to a surpris
“A Big Reward” is a crook story,
given international flavor not only
by the Dutch accent garnishing the
English of Kolb and Dill, but also
by the fact that an internationally
famous portarit is being sought by
numerous detectives. Kolb and Dill
find themselves in hilarious dilemmas
during the untangling of the mystery.
Three in a row—and all big hits.
Tiiat’s the way Paramount turns
out Zane Grey stories. Right on
the heels of “To the Last Man”
and “Tho CaLl of the Canyon,”
comes “ The Heritage of the

Ernest Torrence, Noah Beery and
Lloyd Hughes. It’s down at the
Kex theater. Everyone read the
story and everyone will want to
see the picture which we believe
to be even greater than the novel
itself—if such a thing is possible.

tage of the Desert,” at the Rex,
will be held there today. The pro
