flow into their veins and ultimately
in the veins of a divided country.”

Dr. K. Reinhardt Gives
Opinion on German
American Relations
(Note: This is the third in
series of articles on foreign
countries which the Emerald is
running during International
lias the United States an incon
sistent policy of international peace?
Dr. K. Reinhardt, assistant pro
fessor of German, explains Amer
ica’s position nicely and yet he
raises the question in telling of Ger
man’s interest in furthering that
spirit of “peace on earth; good will
to men.”
“The progressive element in Ger
many is very much impressed and
in favor of any effort that comes
from foreigners to establish an in
ternational brotherhood of nations,”!
he said yesterday, “this as regards
the Kellogg treaty especially.
“What. I, personally, and many
others, Americans as well, do not
understand is that, while this treaty
has been brought about and accept
ed by the United States government,
the Cruiser bill has at the same time
been brought about and accepted.
“I feel irreconcilable conflict be
tween the two motives, and it is
this that Germans, in looking over
the press, cannot harmonize.
“Personally I suppose that in this
ease, as in the case of other nations,
there are antagonistic forces in the
government; one side representing
a new spirit as regards international
relations and the other one repre
senting the old imperialistic spirit,”
so Dr. Reinhardt explained away
the inconsistency, and yet the ques
tion still remains: “Has the United
States a two-faced policy of inter
national peace?”
Dr. Reinhardt went on to speak j
of disarmament. “As you know,” i
lie explained, “Germany was the
only nation that has been obliged
by the Peace treaty to disarm. This
ins been accomplished so that now
die has a standing army of only
100,000 soldiers. This is only enough
to protect the peace of the interior
and the safety of the borders.
“Germany was supposed to take
Hie lead in the matter of disarma
ment, but it was laid down in the
treaty that the other nations would
follow as soon as Germany should
have fulfilled her agreements.

Burt Brown Barker, vice-president
of the university, gave the principal
address of the evening on “Inter
national Friendship.” There is some
thing worth while in the study of
international friendship, Mr. Bar
ker pointed out, when we think of
what the ‘next war’ will be. The
possibility of pilotless, invisible,
noiseless airplanes swooping down on
non combatants, as they are predict
ed to do in the war of the future,
is enough to further the struggle
for world peace.
“The United States is the fresh
man nation of the world,” Mr. Bar
ker said, “and we sometimes forget
the senior benches and tradi
tions of the rest of the world. We
Americans are ignorant of many of
the nations with which we come
in contact. If we are going to be
friendly, we must first know their
feelings. ’ ’
Misunderstanding comes from lack
of knowledge of the other fellow,
Mr. Barker stated. “The univer
sity,” he said, “is the best place
to make for a common understand
ing of each other.”
A program of addresses gnd a tea
lias been arranged today. Frances
Warnecke, a junior in tho Univer

the United Slates from an eight
months trip around the world; Dr.

most unexpected persons with whom
one comes in daily contact.
The group was founded ns a jour

of the group, he said.
Karl Ontliank, one of the charter
members of the fraternity, spoke of
its foundation, and the conditions
under which the campus paper of

Last A. S. U. O. Address
In Woman’s Building
Tonight at 8
“And so it wont for seven years
. . . from place to place and from
tribe to tribe. Rumors of my cap
ture, demise, or murder would
reach the Bureau of Science. The
constabulary would hunt for mo or
my remains, but 1 am still among
those present.” This is what John
AT. Garvan, author, lecturer and ex
plorer, wrote recently in summing
up his life among the pygmies.
Garvan will speak tonight on “Our
Philippine Pygmies” at the Worn
inn’s building at 8 o’clock under the
auspices of the associated students,
i Reserve seats may be had for seventy
five cents, and general admission
for townsfolk for fifty cents. This
will lie the last A. S. U. O. speaker
this year.
Garvan will have 50 slides of the
Philippine pygmies, and another 30
of the African, New Guinea, Malay
Pensinula and Andaman Island
pygmies. lie has spent a quarter
of a century gathering material for
the book he is now writing, entitled
“Our Philippine Pygmies.” Hr.
Warren 1). Smith, bead of the geol
ogy department, said yesterday of
the work, “It will probably be the
most exhaustive treatise ever writ
ten on the pygmy.”
Experiences Dangerous
Some of Garvan’s most dangerous
experiences were with the Mnnabos
and Kalagan Maqdayas. He has
published an account of an exper
ience in 1904, his first “brush with
the untutored savage,” when he, one
Spaniard, pnd a small groulp of
Christian Filipinos “poled them
selves for two days in a (logout to a
Manabo village in the Primeval for
est.” There they were met by a
group of 20 savages armed with
spears, shields, and long side-knives,
They informed the Mnnabos they
wished to settle in their country.
The Mnnabos first offered them a
meal. Garvan write, “After we had
finished our woodland meal, four of
the most stalwart of the group ap
proached the Spaniard and myself
and offered us quids of betclnut—a
token of friendship, as I learned not
long after. I begged to be excused
on the ground that 1 had never
chewed betclnut.
“Our warriors withdrew a little
space and again held converse,
whereupon the whole group ap
proached us with rolling eyes and
threatening mien. The leader, a
bagani or warrior-chief, who had
eight lives to his credit, stepped
up to me and said: ‘Americano, the
hinterland is for Manabos; the sea
shore is for Americans, Spaniards
and Bisayas. One of your kith
fold me years ago that we Manabos
live like wild boars. If that be so,
then we have tusks. Go back to
the seashore’.” Which shows the
kind of humor the pygmies in gen
eral have.
“Better Be a Coward”
They approached Garvan, who did
came rapid calculating. “Better bo
a coward for five minutes than a
dead man all your life,” he decided,
“and simultaneously X threw for
ward my unpraised, outspread
arms, with palms toward the front
ing foe. With a sudden burst of
amity and good-will, 1 said: ‘ Friends,
1 have not come up here to be your
enemy but to be your friend and
your brother. ’
“ ‘Ah!’ replied the principal war
rior-chief, a weazened old curmud
geon who bore me a Satanic look,
•Good, good, but if you want to be
a brother of ours you must give
tokens of your brotherhood, aiivl
then we will let you put in your

By Cleta McKennon
Five amendments, one abolishing
the student council nnd another pro
viding for appointment of editors
of the Emerald and Oregana by tho
publications committee, were made
to the constitution of the associated
students of the University of Ore
gon when all five were voted into
effect by a landslide at a special
elections held at Villard hall yester
day. From a student body of more
than 2500 only 5-18 voters—two
more men than women—went to the
polls. Of these 400 decided that a
progressive step would be taken by
doing away with the student council
and . substituting a committee of
student affairs subsidiary to tho
executive council. Since all amend
ments will go into effect at once,
there will be no more student coun
cil meetings. Only 48 voters favored
retention of the present govern
mental system.
Forty-three ballots were cast
against the amendment concerning
appointment of editors of the Emer
ald and Oregana, but 497 favorable
ballots completely overbalanced this
number. According to this altera
tion in the constitution, editors
hereafter will be nominated by the
staffs of the respective publications
and will he passed upon by the exec
utive council upon recommendation
of the publications committee. The
staffs will be at liberty to nominate
not more than four candidates. A
fifth or more candidates may bo
added to this list through petitions
signed by more than 100 students.
Little Opposition Shown
Even less opposition was shown
by voters to the other amendments,
none of which will be of as far
reaching effect. The amendment
necessitated by recent merging of
the board of regents, to cut tho
clause calling for a member of the
board on the executive council,
brought 22 nayes to 510 yeas. Five
hundred and thirteen favored, while
22 disapproved, of making class
treasurers business managers, and
requiring budgets from them to en
velop all expenditures. Five hun
dred and seven, of 527, saw tho
advisability of decreasing the num
ber of student body meetings from
five to two per year. Some stu
dents diil not vote on all amend
McKeovm Happy
When informed of the outcome of
the elections, Joe McKeown, stu
dent body president, said, “I am
surely happy that all five amend
ments passed by such a fine ma
jority. The students exercised
sound judgment on sound measures
and showed they were anxious to
promote a more efficient student
Art Anderson, student body vice
president, agreed with McKeown,
that “the amendments ns passed
