Judge Skipworth Declares
War Inevitable Unless
Tribunal Plan Is Adopted
Hughes - Harding Project
Would Leave Americans
Free To Reject Verdicts
“The question that is presented
to the people of the world today
is shall we wash our hands of the
European situation and set idly by
and see other countries join in the
tribunal or shall we take our stand
for a tribunal and for everlasting
peace,” declared Judge G. F. Skip
worth of Eugene, in speaking on
the World Court before students of
the University of Oregon at the T.
W. C. A. Bungalow last night.
“Our attitude toward the World
Court resolves itself to the ques
tion, ‘shall we live in peace or
shall we fight,’ ” said Judge Skip
worth. “Unless the nations of the
world agree to some plan similar to
the World Court, just as sure as I
am standing here wo will be embroil
ed in another world war. We don’t
want to repeat what we have gone
through during the last few years.
Shall we live in peace, or shall we
History Sketched
Judge Skipworth traced the his
tory of the World Court from the
time when the Hague Tribunal was
called in session in June, 1899,
when it was simply a board of ar
bitration, until the present time
when the World Court is actually
functioning and has made throe de
cisions on world questions, although
it has not had the co-operation of
the United States. Elihu Root, one
of our modern American statesmen,
worked out the present plan of
the World Court, ho said.
“The World Court is really a tri
bunal. It is a place where the na
tions of the world may come and
have their differences settled by
judicial decision,” said the speaker
in describing the Court. “I cannot
help but think that the majority of
the people of the United Statos
are in favor of entering the World
Court under tho Hughes-IIarding
plan,” ho said.
Plan Explained
This plan, he explained, doos not
legally oliligo tho United States to
abide by tho decisions of tho Court,
but allows her to participate in all
tho functions of that organization,
including tho selection of tho judges
and the sharing of a fair part of
its expenso.
Following Judgo Skipworth’s ad
dress there was a discussion of va
rious phases of the Court by tlioso
present, and in tho course of tho
discussion tho Judgo answered the
questions of those who were puz
zled about nny part of tho plan.
Bart Kendall, president of tho Y.
M. 0. A. cabinet acted as chair
Oregon landscapes and scenic at
tractions on tlio University campus
nro the subjects of the Christmas
card drawings and sketchos which
members of the sophomore design
class in tlio fine arts department of
the school of architecture and al
lied arts have made for the com
ing holiday season.
Theso cards embody an idea uni
que in the exchange of Christmas
cheer. The sceno is the only thing
on the card, with the exception of
the word “Greetings,” or the words
“Season’s Greetings,” at tho bot
tom of tho sketch.
Tho work of making these greet
ing cards is a problem in wood
block, as a single design requires
a month’s time. After tho stu
dent conceives the idea of the
drawing ho makes it first with pen
and ink, and from this carves the
wood block for printing.
Students have prepared designs
of the Mill Race, the Pioneer, build
ings on the campus, and mountain,
beach and river scenes. Shades are
produced through the use of two
or more blocks for each card, and j
nre spoken of ns “values,” as
white, gray, and black.
The design must be made to fit
the technique of the wood block.
Some have been made on lineole
um, but the problem is essentially
the same whether wood or linoleum
is used.

Of German Caroling;

(Continued from page one)
definite form, and set down by
some composer. That is to say, the
carols are often folk tunes modi
fied by art. Carols came into be
ing among white people much as
the spirituals did among negroes.”
“What is the cause of the in
crease of interest in carols!”
“I think it is due partly at least
to the increased interest in reli
gious matters today. On the other
hand, I think the singing of carols
has helped to awaken interest in
religion, too. Many people >get
more spiritual inspiration from mu
sic than from sermons. I can hear
a good sermon and go away in
spired, but I can receive much
greater spiritual inspiration from
hearing good religious singing, if
the singer’s heart is even partly in
the song.”
“You say that carols are pri
marily folk music. I have heard
it said that jazz is the folk music
of America.”
Mr. Siefert took issue at once.
“Don’t you think so for a min
ute,” he said earnestly. “There is
little about jazz to warrant such
an assumption. I believe rather
that the real American folk music
is.found in the works of such com
posers as Stephen G. Foster, who
wrote ‘Old Folks at Home,’ and
many other old favorites. By the
way, a Mr. Howard Milligan has
recently discovered a large body
of musical works by a hitherto un
known American composer of con
siderable merit, along the line of
folk music. This may show that
we Americans have not been so de
ficient in music as has always been
supposed. There is something fas
cinating about jazz, all right, but
it is not yet of permanent value
in the musical world.”
“What about the great success
of such men as Paul Whiteman and
Vincent Lopez, with their jazz or
chestra concerts!”
“They are as yet only novelties.
Mr. Whiteman may some day suc
ceed in making something of value
to the musical world out of his
works, but as yet it is purely in
tho experimental stage. It is pos
sible he may some day do some
such thing for jazz as Strauss did
for tho waltz.
“A musician has to cater to pop
ular taste to a certain extent, how
ever much ho would rather hold to
the higher forms. Pioneering in
music is slow, hard and very often
discouraging work. It takes a long
time to build up a high plane of
popular taste in music. Tho in
creased uso of carols is an encour
aging sign in this respect.”
An important part • in tho pro
gram for entertaining tho high
school visitors this week end is be
ing taken by tho physical educa
tion department. A program will
bo presented Saturday at 10:00
o’clock and in regard to this, Miss
Florence D. Alden, profesor of phy
sical education, says that tho aim
this year is to show high school
students tho typo of program thjit
can bo put over in any high school.
This is in direct contrast to tho
programs presented formerly, which
have consisted of elaborate danc
ing and gymnasium stunts.
Tho program will consist of folk
dancing by the frosliman majors,
stunts dono without apparatus by
tho sophomore majors, and clogging
by tho sophomore gymnasium class.
A discussion mooting will be hold
under tho auspices of the Women’s
athletic association at 10:30 Friday
morning. Janet. Wood, president,
will preside; and tho different,
phases of tho athletic programs in
high schools will bo discussed by
Miss Florence D. Alden, Miss Mary
J. Shelly, Miss Dorothy Evans, and
Miss Janet Wood. High school stu
dents will also discuss their indi
vidual problems in this conference.
Enrollment Includes Many
Of Varied Occupations
From the bus boy to the mission
ary, with several farmers, some for
est rangers, numerous stenograph
ers and a physician besides, the
extension division of the Univer
sity can rightfully claim that its
students are of “almost as many
occupations as are listed in the di
rectory” of Portland.
The teachers have the heaviest
enrollment of any one profession,,
with a total of 322. Students come
next, with 209; 64 housewives and
mothers are enrolled; 17 stenog
raphers; 13 farmers; 17 clerks; 13
bookkepers; two loggers, and two
U. S. Coast guards. Those who do
not state professions or occupa
tions number 283.
Statistics show that the majority
of correspondence and extension
students are from 20 to 30 years
of age, although there are over a
hundred between the ages of 15 and
20, and nine between the ages of
50 to 64. College graduates, work
ing for a masters degree, or just
for the love of study itself, are
numerous. Again, there are stu
dents who take their entire col
lege course, with the exception of
a 3 car or so on the campus, through
correspondence or at the extension
division in Portland.
Nearly 300 young bankers are
fcllowing the courses prescribed l.y
the American Institute of Banking
as regular college work. A variety
of general and specialized courses
in writing are available for those
who have literary aspirations. Of
the class in feature writing, hO
members sold articles in one single
term. There are classes in adver
tising, accounting and art. Pub
lic speaking courses have a par
ticularly wide appeal.
A close inspection of the indi
vidual student reveals that he
ccmes to class for the sole purpose
of learning something in which he
is particularly interested. This is
the basis for the statement that the
extension school is the ideal school
—for there one finds eager stu
dents, and earnest students.
