/T'IIE OREGONIAN comments on the editorial page of yes
terday’s issue on an item written by Dr. Glenn Hoover,
printed in the Emerald recently. The Oregonian seems per
turbed about the attitude of Dr. Hoover toward American poli
tics, and American institutions in general, laying the blame .for
what it terms an acquirement of “super-culture” to his recent
stay in Europe and particularly to a visit to the University of
It states that while there are undoubted advantages to be
gained by our professors through contact with the universities
of Europe there are “countervailing drawbacks against which
the pilgrim should guard by cultivating a healthily American
frame of mind.” That Dr. Hoover has failed to so proteet him
self is insinuated by quoting from his article in regard to the
elections, in which he says, “the show is a bit dull, the theme
frayed and hackneyed and the cast is unusually weak,” and
“the audience is unquestionably bored.”
Whether those statements are true or not is, of course, a
matter of opinion and therefore debatable. It is certainly not,
however, sufficient cause to intimate the lack of “a healthily
American frame of mind.”
In many of the articles which flooded the country preced
ing the election, one discovered that there was a considerable
number of writers who felt much as does Dr. Hoover, and one
encountered often the opinion that none of the candidates were
“title role material,” but that one should vote for this candi
date or that candidate as being the least undesirable. This
seems much in the same vein as the statements made by Dr.
Hoover. Did not some of the newspapers carry stories with
The Oregonian points an accusing finger at Oxford, in par
ticular, as the agent guilty of throwing a “spell” over Dr.
Hoover, despite the fact that he spent most of his time study
ing at Strasbourg, France.
It says, “On his return let the professor rub his mental eyes
and come from under the spell. Let him look over the rough
and ready, give-and-take hurlyburly of our campaign over the
long vista of our splendid history. . . He may confess that,
though' our methods are somewhat crude, we outdo them
(France and England) in the essentials of free government
and in the individual wellbeing of our citizens. We have no
Oxford, nor have we a million unemployed living on public
So closes the Oregonian’s parting broadside.
Such statements appeal to the ego. They sound nice ami
one may feel himself swell with pride that he belongs to the
nation that has “such a vista of splendid history.” and no “mil
lion unemployed living on public doles.”
Is it not true, however, to the more serious minded who are
not satisfied with the comfortable feeling resulting from a heap
ing meal of flattery, but who are broad-minded enough to rec
ognize and admit their own faults as well as their virtues, that
we also might have a million unemployed and our history
might be even more splendid had we entered in the great con
flict for humanity when Great Britain did, and for which she
now suffers, and we profit ?
One should not question himself, then, or anything of which
he is a part, but should bathe in glorious ecstasy in his own and
his neighbors’ smug satisfaction of perfection attained!
It is hard to conceive of a greater impediment than such
a doctrine to research, the quest for knowledge and progress.
Dr. Hoover, in questioning some phases of the nation’s po
litical organization, was not demonstrating a mind not
“healthily American,” but as a scholar of politics, was en
deavoring to point out that “all is not perfection,” and that
there is a need for further evolution and progress.
Why cite Britain and France, saying that the net results of
our political struggles through a period of years compare favor
ably with them? Even should we admit we outdo them many
times in the “essentials of free government and in the indi
vidual well-being of our citizens,” does that argue that because
Dr. Hoover hints there is room for still further progress in the
United States he is not “healthily American”?—D. L. W.
