Policies of Association
Of Professors Appear to
Have ’Been Violated

All Instructors Entitled
To Fair Trial Before
Dismissal, Is Claim
Principles of University admin
istration specifically applying to
the recent actions of the state
board of regents of the University
in dismissing and demoting a num
ber of faculty members, have been
found in the statement of policies
published in the bulletin of the
American Association of University
Professors, a national organization
having a chapter of about 48 mem
bers on this campus.
In a report of the committee of
academic freedom and tenure, pub
lished in February, 1925, in the
bulletin, the statement is made
that any university teacher should
be given notice of dismissal or of
refusal of reappointment not later
than three months before the end
of the academic year, and in the
case of teachers above the grade of
instructor, one years’ notice should
be given. These principles are the
ones that^ are in issue in the case
of the recent dismissals made by
Defense Held Permissable
The report also contains the
statement that every university
teacher should be entitled to a
Afr statement in writing of the specific
charges and that he should be giv
en a chance to defend himself be
fore dismissal or demotion.
According to members of the or
ganization on the campus any lo
cal nfember or the local chapter
may request an investigation of the
situation. If the request is grant
ed by the national organization, a
committee will make a complete in
vestigation and the report, with a
full statement of the facts of the
case, naming those at fault, will be
published in the bulletin, which is
distributed to every member in the
United States. The report is na
turally given wide publicity in the
vicinity of the institution.

THE IMMEDIATE NECESSITIES
BY RANDALL S. JONES
President, A. S. U. O.
If the building fee amendment
passes—a grandstand will be
built this summer—a pavilion,
within a year—and a student
union, within three years.
But the proposed building pro
gram is far broader than that—
for after these buildings are
constructed, cksh will be avail
able for a library, classrooms,
or a men’s gym.
The amendment limits the
money that may be used for the
grandstand, pavilion, and Stu
dent Union to $500,000 includ
ing the $260,000 already
pledged. That means that only
$240,000 can come from this
source for these purposes. The
pavilion and grandstand will
together cost $75,000, which
leaves $165,000 available for the
Student Union. The rest of the
money for the Student (Union
must come from the subscrip
tions already made.
Figuring the normal increase
in enrollment the $240,000 avail
able, under this amendment will
be paid in four and a half years.
After that period the revenue
obtained under this plan could
go into other buildings. A
$250,000 building could be built
every five years.
The passage of the amend
ment insures a permanent,
sound, business-like, building
policy that would continue so
long as the University grows
and needs buildings, and that
would be based on equal pay
ments by everyone,
PROFESSORS LEND AID
IN SCHOOL PROBLEM
Up to about a month ago, the citj
of Medford had been worrying
about a seemingly impossible mud
die of political entanglement oJ
nearly a years’ duration. The eitj
was badly in need of new schoo
buildings, but at each election foi
the purpose of deciding the bone
to be voted upon and the site foi
the buildings, there were alwayt
a sufficient number opposed t<
either the bond or the site in viev
to defeat the bill.
Such was the predicament whei

fessor H. P. Rainey, both of thi

“HASSAN” TO HAVE PREMIERE
SHOWING TONIGHT AT GUILD HALL
After two successful full dress
rehearsals, the play of the fine arts,
colorful, romantic and richly en
dowed with love, that element
that so entices the playgoer, “Has
san” is ready for production and
will be presented by the campus
dramaticists tonight - on the Guild
theatre boards for a four-night run.
Much has been said of the qual
ity and picturesqueness of this
drama, but it is impossible to real
ize the beauty of the piece until
it is actually reviewed by the
theatre goer. It is reported that
the entire company is vitally in
terested in the play and with this
as a background to the fascina
tion of the drama itself, it is be
lieved that the campus will wit
ness one of the most interesting
plays of the school year.
Mr. Reddie is giving to the lead
ing part, Hassan. that finesse which
is necessary in the portrayal of the
romantic confectioner of (Bagdad.
The whim of the author has robbed
the confectioner of the lead
throughout the play but while it is
in the hands of Rafi, the king of
the beggars, the part is well execut
ed by Terva Hubbard, and the in
j terest is by no means dropped dui
ing his intense scenes with Pei
vaneh, the lover of Rafi. Pervane'
is played with unusual taste b;
Claire Gibson. Opposite Mr. Red
die plays Gerda Brown, in the rol
of Yasmin, the enticing creature o
Hassan’s devotions and poeti
adoration. Her role is difficult t
handle but she is giving it th
proper atmosphere, which will prol
ably make it one of the most sue
cessful characters she has ever poi
Th oriental harshness of th
cruel Caliph of Bagdad, leader o
the faithful, is given with supei
ior understanding by Darrel Lai
sen. Too many other interestin
characters edge their way into thi
drama to be mentioned here bu
each one, according to the ir
structors in the drama departmeir
have earned themselves a considei
! able amount of praise in their r<
| speetive portrayals of the mind
! and emotions of the orientals, wh
are so difficult to understand.
The curtain opens tonight on th
first performance at 8:30 at Guil
hall and will continue for the res
of the week.

Bad Injuries May Prevent

JOHNSON IS ON SICK LIST
The University of Washington
relay was more like a football
game. The varsity track men came
home last Sunday night after the
Seattle trip with three men limp
ing. Three outstanding tracksters,
Jerry, Extra, 100 and 220 men,
Gilbert Hermance, quarter mil
er and Pen Wilbur, another 440
man pulled muscles in the races or
before and it is doubtful whether
or not they will be able to enter
the dual meet with the University
of Washington at Seattle this week
Tryouts will be held this after
i noon for the half mile, two mile,
. and all the quarter milers with the
exception of Jim Kinney. There
will also be an elimination race in
the high hurdles between Kalph
Tuck and Franeis Cleaver. The
' system that Bill started is the chal
' lenge system in which a man if
he places far down on the list in
the first regular tryouts may chal
lenge the man above him up to
third place so today’s elimination
races are the results of the «hal
lenges among the varsity men.
' The miler to be entered in the
meet has been picked and there
will be no tryouts for the event.

Is Smashed When
Two Cars Collide
“I knew it!” groaned Claude
Eeavis as he looked out of his
window and beheld his campus
Ford crumple up from the on
slaught of a Ford coupe, “now it
will take me until doomsday to
get her out of the hospital.”
Such were the mixed feelings
of the car’s (excuse me) owner
as he stood in his room and
watched a coupe, driven by a
girl, run into an Associated Oil
roadster, glance off and Tun
smash into his pet heap, which
was parked on Thirteenth and Al
What’s more Claude doesn’t
know yet who to blame the trou
ble on, the coupe or the roadster,
and says he will probably have
to pay for repairs himself, after
not even having the joy of be
ing a factor in the accident.
OREGON BASEBALL MEN
By Wilbur L. Wester
Scoring 14 runs in half as many
innings, Oregon stepped back into
her winning stride and easily
trounced the Willamette nine, yes
terday afternoon. The Salem team
proved no match to the varsity and
by mutual consent on the part of
the players on both sides, the Lem
on Yellow hitting melee was called
off at the end of seven slow in
nings, with the score 14 to 3.
The game yesterday came just at
jthe right time. The varsity. had
| hit a hitting and fielding slump and
the battle with Willamette served
to help get the Webfooters in good
shape for the O. A. C. game at Cor
vallis on Saturday and the road
trip north next week.
The battle opened with Williams
on the mound for Oregon. He held
the opposition for three scoreless
j innings, when Coach Beinhart sent
! in Dave Adolph to finish an “al
ready won” ball game.
The first canto for the varsity
was very profitable, the Oregon
bludgeon-wielders - driving in four
, runs. The visitors did not break
into the run-column until well in
the fourth inning, when two errors
made by the varsity were convert
ed into two runs with the aid of
two walks given out by Adolph.
