■JTNIVEftSlTY students are
reported to be debating the
voluntary abandonment of haz
ing, whereat one is constrained
to remark that the University
is “growing up.” To be ef
fective the abandonment would
have to be voluntary, with the
ban enforced largely by the
power of student opinion. It is
a matter largely concerning the
students and their faculty con
ferees and we do not want to
inject a town attitude in a
gowned conference, but it may
not be amiss to advance the re
mark that such action in our
opinion would greatly streng

A spirit of independence
among university students is a
thing to be, desired and culti

of individual and group respon

England to Vote Soon
Farm Relief A pproved
'- By CARL GREGORY
T> A.SEE ALL. b o a t racing, big
sweepstakes in stecplechasing,
golf, lacrosse, and such things in
whieh .Englishmen take special
pride, have partially lost their fas
cination in face of tho coming gen
eral election of members of the
British parliament. Since October
2!), 1924, the Britishers have not
voted for members to the house of
commons. For five years Prime
Minister Baldwin has been in su
preme power without facing the
vote of lack of confidence. Now,
with 1,500,000 unemployed people
in England, three parties—Conserva
tives headed by Primfc Minister
Baldwin, Liberals by ex-Prime Min
ister David Lloyd George, and La
borites by J. Ramsay MacDonald
who led the first English labor gov
ernment in 1924—will be certain to
have an interesting time.
Alfred P. Perry, of the Reuter’s
Neivs service in London, in a recent
visit on the University of Oregon
campus, said that it was a “toss-up”
as to which party Would be success
ful in the final vote. A casual sur
vey shows 420 Conservatives, 150
Laborites, 40 Liberals, and 5 Inde
pendents in the present bouse of
commons. Further analysis shows
that Lloyd George, or the “Roose
velt of Great Britain,” of the Lib
erals, is making the situation inter
esting for Bis opponents. He is
winning votes with appalling suc
cess, and it is thought by politicians
that should there be a lack of the
necessary majority, of 308 in the
favored party that a coalition of
the Laborites and Liberals will re
Conservatives, in the face of vasts
armies of unemployed, say “Better
let well enough alone.” Laborites
and Liberals base their attack on
the failure of the Baldwin govern
ment to solve the problem while the
Liberals propose a construction pro
gram that will employ 600,000 of
the unemployed. Tariff and liquor
reform have been given secondary
consideration by party leaders.
With 5.000,000 women voters added
to the ranks there will bo about 30,
000,000 voters cast their ballots in
England on May 30. And for whom
will they be voting? Not mere per
sonalities unknown to the majority
of them and made famous by trivial
newspaper publicity, but outstand
ing men in affairs of the world.
They are men widely known
throughout tho world, and may the
best man win, lie he Conservative,
Laborite, or Liberal!

taken by directors of the hank at
the request of the Dawes plan trans
fer committee which met on April
2i! in Paris. If .such reluctance to
pay the reparations continues on
the part of the Germans there will
be many thorny obstacles placed in
the path of the Dawes plan workers.
Taken all in all, with the repara
tions protilem, the Britisli elections
coming on, the menace offered by
Europe's nationality minorities, and
increasing reports of rebelling col
onies, the point of greatest political
interest will lia within confines
of Europe for an indefinite time.
Problems of such moment undoubt
edly overshadow in importance any
thing avc have to deal with on the
North American continent.
AFTER many days of heated dis
cussion on farm relief the
house of representative's, on April
24, passed the proposed bill by a
vote of 307 To 42. Noa</ the bill will
go to the senate Avhere the deben
ture plan will be voted on and where
it avill likely meet stronger opposi
tion. President Hoover has already
signified Iris disapproval of tire de
benture because it Avould benefit
the farmer only in theory, mean an
increase of taxes, create profiteer
ing and bring American agriculture
to disaster. .Even" though the senate
did pass the relief bill Hoover Avould
veto it as it noAV stands with the
debenture. Farm relief always seems
to run into insurmountable barriers
Avhen the actual exercise instead of
theory is considered. HoAvcver, be
fore the end of the special session,
the American farmers will know
again Avhother they have been prom
ised something in vain as seems to
be the regular order of business in
the legislative hopper.
