Kellogg Faces
Big Problems
At Washington
Protection of Interests
Creates Deep Hatred
In Foreign Countries
Secretary of State Kellogg has be
fore him a series of problems which
are enough to make any ordinary
man spend sleepless nights for wor
ry. Apparently the decision to stay
in Nicaragua against the wishes of
a powerful faction of Nicaraguan
people is irrevocable and the good
name of the United States suffers
further eclipse in Latin-American
countries. With fifteen or more Am
erican ships in nearby waters and
over 4000 marines and bluejackets
ready to land at a moment’s notice,
the tiny Liberal force of Vice-presi
dent Sacaza can do nothing but
face the inevitable.
* * *
In our dispute with Mexico re
garding the land and petroleum laws,
the State Department has squirmed
out of a rather difficult situation
with some success by offering arbi
tration. It was the logical step to
take but Washington allowed the
situation to develop through weeks
of fruitless threats and warnings
almost to the point of a severance
of diplomatic relations before it was
proposed. In regards to the midget
republic of Panama, a treaty in
which that state becomes virtually
a dependency *of the United States
is now being discussed by the Pan
aman Senate and has raised a storm
of popular criticism in that country,
in which suporters of the treaty are
being branded as traitors and tools
of American imperialist policies.
* * *
Furthermore, the treaty whereby
the United States was once more to
resume formal diplomatic relations
with Turkey after many years has
been blocked by the United States
Senate and the president has noth
ing left to do but accept the defeat
with good grace. The World Court
issue still stands where it was. Most
of the members of the Court ac
cepted tour or the nve reservations
which the United States insisted up
on as the conditions of her member
ship and went as far on the fifth as
was probably possible at the time,
but President Coolidge demands that
the Court’s statute be so interpreted
in every detail that it shall corres
pond with the American idea there
of. Meanwhile the Court continues
to function without us and its mem
bers do not seem to find that it con
flicts with their respective “national
interests.” Indeed, some think that
it should be given even greater
powers of jurisdiction.
And then seemingly to cap the
climax comes the news of further
nationalist riots in China against
all foreigners. At one time the
United States held a position unique
among nations in the opinion of
Chinese by refusing to cooperate
with European powers in their ef
forts to maintain political control
there. That position has long since
been forfeited. We gave up the
advantages which the confidence of
the- Chinese might have given us for
the somewhat doubtful benefits of
cooperation with the western pow
ers and now we all ride in the same
Doat. mere are billions or dollars
of foreign money invested in China
and undoubtedly there is sufficient
pressure to demand a vigorous pol
icy. The United States participates
to the extent of some thirty or forty
warships in Chinese waters, some of
which have gone hundreds of miles
into the interior by way of rivers.
Prom the western point of view this
protection of American property and
American citizens seems .only nat
ural and proper, especially since
there is no single, stable govern
ment in China which pretends to
undisputed authority.
And yet, the Chinese seem united
in one thing and that one thing may
bring complete unity. It is, of
course, opposition to foreign control.
Apparently this business of protect
ing “national interests” accom
plishes little ibut the stirring up of
incalculable hatreds against us.

THE Oregon varsity five defeated
the Washington State College

night. The Oregon defense held the

to five counters in
the first half,

Etiquette to Feature in
February Number
Of Magazine
Numerous changes were announced
in the staff of the Webfoot yester
day by Eolf Klep, editor. Copy for
the historical number is nearly
ready for the printers and Klep,
with the assistance of staff members
is working hard to get the magazine
out by the first of February.
In addition to the many interest
ing articles which will be included
in this issue there will be space de
voted to pointers on etiquette. This
has been written from documents
which were printed in the middle of
the nineteenth century and which
were only recently unearthed by
certain members of the staff.
Joe Sweyd, one of the new feature
editors, said: “No doubt Emily Post,
the famous authority on etiquette,
will find it necessary to revise her
book after she sees the ‘Webfoot.’ ”
Sam Kinley, who has for some
time in the past been working on
the business staff of the Emerald,
has been appointed business man
ager of the Webfoot to fill the va
cancy left by the resignation of
Douglas Wilson.
Several other changes have been
made in the staff of the Webfoot.
Joe Sweyd and Art Schoeni have
been appointed as new feature edi
tors. Harriet Atchison and Jim
Eogers have been added to the staff
ofi artists and Dan Cheney has been
appointed the publicity manager
for the magazine.
Members of Faculty Praise Work
Undertaken by Student Committee
Dean Sheldon Calls Movement One of Important
And Valuable in History of University
Kecommendations for changes
within the University educational
structure, made by an informal un
dergraduate committee, are viewed
favorably by members of the fac
ulty, who were interviewed by Em
erald reporters. The general opin
ion was that the survey and the
accompanying suggestions will prove
valuable both to the students and
to the faculty in creating greater
interest in the function of educa
“I regard the present movement,
aiming to provide more extensive
and elastic facilities for gifted stu
dents as one of the most important
and valuable in the history of the
University,” said Dr. Henry D. Shel
don, dean of the school of education.
“I believe it should take the form
of encouraging the students to read
more widely. It may very well also
take the form of supplying facilities
for honors granted to students who
have achieved a thoroughly compre
hensive mastery of the field, a pro
cess lasting three or four years. The
success of the movement will de
pend on the genuine interest among
the students and upon the ability
of the authorities to work out some
means of checking up on work of a
free and elastic character which
will guarantee its amount and qual
ity without checking the spontan
eity. It is probable that there will
have to be a year or two of experi
mentation before this ean be

“I think it is most valuable, par
ticularly for the reason that such a
move from the students is likely
to have more influence than when
it comes from the faculty. It shows
a healthy spirit,” said Dr. James
D. Barnett, head of the political
science department.

“Part of the value of the student
report is the thoughtful, construc
tive criticism of serious minded stu
dents who are familiar with the gen
eral student point of view towards
intellectual, extra-curricular, and
social activities,” was the opinion
of Dr. E. V. Boyer, head of the Eng
lish department. “It is valuable to
the faculty to have this point of
view of the students to consider. It
is immensely valuable to the stu
dents themselves to liave made an
attempt to understand the working
of the university and the difficulties
that have to be faced and the ob
stacles to be overcome. The lnove
ment is absolutely commendable.”

are doing at the present time,” said

Swimmers Take
Diving Honors
From Winged M
Five First Places Won
By Multnomah; Two
By Webfoots
Coach Ed Abercrombie’s varsity
swimmers journeyed to Portland
Saturday to meet Multnomah club
and returned with a total of 21
points to the clubmen’s 38. Jack
Cody’s men carried off five first
places to two for Oregon.
The lemon-yellow made its best
showing in the diving event. Byerly
and Thompson took first and second
while Davis, whose score was not
counted, made a better mark than
Thompson. Cunningham of Mult
nomah placed third.
Although Cuthbert Beiveley, the
club’s star diver, was not able to
compete, the opinion of critics was
that Byerly’s excellent form would
have earned him first place against
the best the club could offer.
The only other first place taken
by the Oregon tinmen was in the
150 yard backstroke in which
“Wig” Fletcher triumphed.
Complete results were as follows:
220 yards—Schroth (M), first;
Lombard (M), second; McCook (O),
third. Time, 2:33 1-5.
200 yard breaststroke—Becker
(M), first; Linderman (M), second;
Smith (O), third. Time, 2:54 4-5.
440 yards—Horsfall (M), first;
Hansen (M), second; Beid (O),
third. Time 5:48 3-5.

Student Announced
In Extra Edition
Late to class for the first time
in his ten years as instructor in
the School of Journalism, Profes
sor George Turnbull was greeted
with a vigorous clapping of hands,
caused by the announcement of his
engagement to Miss Mary Lou Bur
ton, graduate of the University in
192B, which was made Saturday
evening at the home iof Dean and
Mrs. Eric W. Allen.
“Extra Engagement Announced’’
■printed in the form of headlines
was placed bv the plate of each
guest to tell the news. The sheets
were printed by Bobby Allen on
his own press.
One cigar, even two perhaps, were
passed by the professor to his many
friends yesterday.
.Guests present at the dinner were
Miss Mary Lou Burton, Professor
George Turnbull, Prof, and Mrs. W.
F. G. Thaeher, Prof, and Mrs. Ralph
D. Casey, Prof, and Mrs. Robert C.
Hall, Miss Margaret Skavlan, Mrs.

Elly Ney Gives
Piano Concert
McArthur Court Provides
Ample Seating. Room
For Students
Other Performances
Receive Critics’ Praise
Program Includes Chopin
And Beethoven
<<TP'LLY NEY, the greatest living
• 1-/. genius of the piano,” says a
Berlin paper, will be presented Wed
nesday evening in concert, by the
A. 8. U. O. The concent will be
given in McArthur Court, which is
large enough to accommodate the
entire student body, so that no one
need fear of being turned away on
account of limited number of seats.
Last week Madame Ney was solo
ist with the Portland Symphony
Orchestra, of which the following
was said: “Elly Ney was the sen
sation of the evening at the Bee
thoven centenary concert last night.
It is probable that no soloist has
ever received a more enthusiastic
reception in this city than she. It
was a demonstration that matched
in enthusiasm the masterful reading
given the concerto by soloist and
orchestra alike.”
Soloist Declared Genius
Madame Ney is known as an in
comparable interpreter of Beet
hoven.. To play his works well one
must have the power and breadth
of conception, depth of feeling, and
a temperament fitted for the expres
sion of the mighty and heroic. Mad
ame Ney possesses all of these. Con
cerning a recent Beethoven concert,
given by Madame Ney, it was said:
“Whether she touches the most ten
der, innermost chords or depicts
storm and struggle, she always does
so with a power of conviction that
carries away her audience. Elly Ney
is not only an interpreter of the
tender, the dreamy, the mystical
mood, but also of the most dramatic,
demoniac, gigantic. This woman is
a genius.”
Master of Many Composers
However Madame Ney is not only
an interpreter of Beethoven, but
she interprets very masterfully the
works of other great composers,
among them Chopin and Brahms.
Madame Ney’s program for Wednes
day evening includes both Chopin
and Beethoven. The program will
be opened with Beethoven’s Ham
merklavier sonata, “To play it at
all is a respectable achievement, to
play it well is an impressive one,
and to play it suporbly well is only
possible to the very greatest art
ists.” Her last group will consist
of Chopin, which when interpreted
correctly takes the playing of a
masterful pianist. Madame Ney is
unquestionably “a genius of the
piano. ”
Pay Fees Immediately
Advice Given Students
By University Cashier
Students are not paying their fees
rapidly enough, in the opinion of E.
P. Lyon, university cashier, to
avoid the last-minute rush Saturday
Saturday noon, January 29, is the
last day for paying fees without
penalty. The fee for late payment is
$3 for the tirst day late, and 25
cents for each day after, for one
week only. After that date, the
student is automatically suspended
from the University.
Not only are N. S. F. checks con
sidered non-payments, but no more
checks will be accepted by the uni
versity during the remainder of the
school year from students having
bad checks returned.
Tonight’s the Night
Discussion to Start
The first of a series of discus
sion groups being held under the
auspices of the Y. W. C. A. will
take place tonight at living organ
izations on the campus.
The groups will take up various
topics relating in some way to re
ligion and morals. There will be
four meetings in all, coming on the
evenings of January 25, February 1,
February 15, and March 1. The lead
ers will be entertained at dinner,
after which the meeting will be
held until 7:30.
Waffles? Nope, Shoes
This Time for Y. W.
A XY old shoes, toothbrushes,
-^•*-sIiekers, socks, phonograph
records, or the like ?
Here’s a real chance to get rid
of all the rubbish accumulated
this year! The Y. W. .is having
another sale. Not waffles this
time, but rummage.
Why not have a grand clean
up and donate the wastage to
the sale? A record is to be kept
at the office of how much is do
nated by each living organiza
tion, including those of the men,
Who will come out ahead?
The sale will be on the 28th
and 29th. Anything will sell if
given a fighting chance. Bring
it to the Y. W. Bungalow.

first meeting of the men who signed
up for spring football. They were
scheduled to meet last week, but
weather conditions did not permit

start tomorrow and continue until
Coach J. J. McEwan is satisfied
with the work of the potential 1927
Linemen in Lead
The captain for the coming grid
season will probably be chosen to
night, as has been the practice for
several years. Albert Sinclair,
tackle, was captain last fall, and
was preceded by Bob Mautz, end,
and Dick Reed, tackle, the past
college generation. This would indi
cate a leaning toward linemen as
field leaders.
Dick Reed, tackle and captain in
1925, has been playing professional
football during the past two seasons
with George Wilson’s Wildcats. He
also fought several successful but
tles in the squared circle and won
them all, but decided that football
paid better for the effort.
Bob Mautz, all-coast end and cap
tain of a year ago is now employed
as assistant coach in charge, espe
cially, of the Oregon ends.
Albert Sinclair, captain, amd.
tackle of last season’s team, plans
on entering the regular army as
soon as graduation exercises arc
over. In this he will follow in his
father’s footsteps, who is colonel
in the Army and is in charge of
the R. O. T. C. on the campus..
Elected Captain is Opposed
At present, Proctor Flanagan,

larly elected team captain in school.

Record Set by
Student Fund
Students Borrow $12,940;
Women Average About
$1 Over Men
No Losses Suffered
By Fund for 14 Years
Condition of Fund Is Low;
Care Is Required
'E'lFTEEN years of money lending
and not a loss!
It sounds like a “Better Busi
ness" story, but that is only the
phenomenal record of the Student
Loan Fund, according to Dean H.
Walker, dean of men, who has charge
of administering the fund. There
has not been a single loss from non
payment of a loan since 1912, and
that is a record that no bank ®r
Shylock can boast, the dean asserted’
Figures for the administration of
the fund during the school year
1925-26, released through the dean’s
office yesterday, show that a total
of $12,940 was loaned to 143 men.
and women students during the.
three terms. Eighty-two of these
loans, totaling $8,245, were granted!
to university men, while 51 co-eds
were aided to the extent of $4,695.
Co-eds Borrow More
Although the figures show that
more men took advantage of the
loan than women, an average of the
amount of loans per person dis
closes that eo-eds borrowed slightly
larger amounts than men. The av
erage loan to each woman was
$89.62. The average amount of both
men and women was $90.49.
Although figures have not been
compiled for the loan during the
fall term of the present school year,
the demand, according to Doan
Walker, was heavier than last year.
The condition of the fund is low
at the present time, and careful
ministering of loans is necessary.
Money Besult of Gifts
“There is not enough money to
meet the legitimate demands of the
loan,” said Mr. Walker, who de
plored. the necessity of refusing a.
few requests in order to place the
money where it is most needed*.
Money for the loan fund is entirely
the result of gifts.
“That students appreciate the
loans is shown by two things,” said
Dean Walker.
“First, we have not had a single
loss since 1912. And becond, in
spite of the fact that practically all
borrowers are working their way
through school, their scholarship av
erage is above the regular univer
sity average.”
Letters of appreciation are con
stantly being received by Dean
Walker from graduates who were
enabled to finish their university
work with the aid of the fund.
Bewitching Touches of Schroff’s
Brush Reveal Surprises in Pictures
Collection of Landscape Paintings on Exhibition
Show Beauty of Color and Lighting
By A. K.
A love of pure colors and a tech
nique that shows great freedom in
every sweep of the brush, a clear,
vibrating atmosphere, a knack for
picking out lovely compositions—
compositions which never grow tire
some but which seem always to have
something new, some little surprise
—these are only a few of the char
acteristics which go to make the
paintings by Alfred A. Schroff, now
hanging in the exhibition room of
tho art and architecture building,
so well liked and so highly com
mended. Sometimes the little sur
prise is in the soft, violet shading
that creeps out in certain lights
from amongst the thick leaves of
a tree; again it is a glimpse of a
brook, previously unnoticed, as it
tumbles from an unexpected corner
of the picture and wanders over
rocks and through bushes only to
disappear behind a tree or knoll.
Work Is Distinguished
Some who have seen these pic
tures declare them to be by far the
best work shown this year in the
exhibiting room of the art build
ing. Be that as it may, the work
alone is enough to distinguish the
entire collection as a sample of the
finest work done in America today
and, whfen one adds to this the repu
tation of a man who has won not
only worthy praise from art critics
but medals as well, the statement is
easy to accept.
For those who wonder what Mr.
Schroff is working toward this year,
a visit to the exhibition is all that
is necessary. Each painting has a
story to tell. Looking at them, one
continually evaluates them and the
valuation always increases. One see*
in each a technique that has a dis
tinct motive and that is capable of
expressing that motive in a way
that projects the ideas and impres
sions of the artist without making
the technique obvious. One sees in.
each picture a master touch, a spark
of genius that makes the pictnres
live, in themselves, as well as in the
mind of the visitor.
The exhibition is open to campus
and townspeople every afternoon
from 1:00 to 5:00 except Sunday
afternoons when it is open from 2:0®
until 5:00 and on Tuesday and
Thursday evenings from 7:00 to
