UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 4, 1930 NUMBER 69 Third Week Contestants To Faee 'Air’ Alpha Upsilon, Alpha Tan Omega Programs on ” Radio Tonight PLANS ARE WITHHELD KORE Honrs Necessitate Thursday Time Change To 7 to 8 o’Cloek Alpha Upsilon and Alpha Tau Omega will face the KORE micro phone tonight in the opening pro grams of the third week of com petition in the Emerald-KORE radio contest. * Richard Averill, soloist and program director for Alpha Upsi lon, reports that he has assembled a group of musicians v/ho will ^ make a strong bid for the beauti ful Majestic radio which has been offered by McMorran and Wash burne as first prize for the con test. Harper To Direct Alpha Tau Omega, whose pre sentation, organized and under the direction of Ermin Harper, has kept the nature of its program a secret, which not to be divulged until tonight. Fred Norton, contest director, yesterday announced that all Thursday evening programs will henceforth be held at 7 o’clock in stead of 8 o’clock as in the last, two weeks. This change was made necessary by a nation wide hook up of the Columbia Broadcasting network which goes on the air every Thursday night from 8 till 9. “It is important,” said Norton, “that contestants appearing on Thursday nights start on time and have their programs well enough rehearsed and regulated so that they will not run over the time al lotted, since the student programs must absolutely be off the air by 8 o'clock.” Smith To Lecture On 6Jazzy Blues’ Class Open To Everyone Interested “Jazz”—a serious attempt to deal with the business of this in teresting type of music—will be the subject of a lecture with illus trations which S. Stephenson Smith, assistant professor of Eng lish, will give to his class in criti cism, and to Mrs. Anne Beck’s class in the “Field of Music” Wednesday morning at 8 o'clock in the music auditorium. Smith will explain symphonic jazz, and the “blues” music. Dem onstrations of the characteristics which he will criticize will be given by some campus jazz-hound, and Smith will also use the phono k graph to play the symphony of Gershwin, “An American inParis.” The lecture is open to anyone interested, and particularly to those who feel energetic enough to crawl out at 8 o’clock, accord ing to Mr. Smith. Queer Packet in Vault * * * * Forever Alivay’s ' Tale Forever Alway's package still lies in the vault at the main li brary. It is a plain brown paper parcel tied with grey twine. On the cover of the package is writ ten in pen: “Records of the route of travel of Forever Alway from July 20th to Febr. 25th, 1927. Four seals of blue and white with a five point star in the center sending out white flashes, are pasted on the paper covering. Around the outer edge of each seal is printed: “Alone to almighty God, servient ' Forever Alway. A wandering botanist, few stu dents on the campus will remem ber him. He first appeared two years ago with a pack on his back, travel stained and dirty. Last year he came through Eugene again and impressed with the kind treatment he had received here, left his memoirs and specimens in care of M. H. Douglass, librarian. Some day he expects to begin writing his adventures, then he will send for his package. The message may come from Asia or South America. Perhaps the mes sage may never come and the par cel will go on collecting dust, un til some one of the future will j open the package to read some ^ thing of the life of Forever Alway. The Movimj Finger -o FROSH PADDLING . . . EXTRA-LEGAL POWERS . . -By OLIVER POLITICOS Frosh paddling on the library steps or no frosh paddling at all could easily be determined by the constitution revision committee. Nor would there need to be any special legislation on the matter. If the new government is to be pa ternalistic, its very nature will de termine the agency for enforcing traditionss. Any executive agency of the student government should be provided for in the constitution. At present the Order of the O and the Oregon Knights have taken upon themselves the ex tra-legal executive authority of enforcing past traditionss. It is extra-legal because the consti tution neither definitely gives them the authority nor even recognizes them as part of the student government. * * * Since the Order of the O and the Oregon Knights are thus non existent, and since they undisputa bly do hold themselves to be two of the strongest arms of the stu (Continued on Page Three) Six Students To Appear in Music Program Tonight Increasing Attendance Shows Popularity of Musical Programs Vocal and Instrumental Music on Tonight Beethoven ‘‘rubs shoulders” with the modern Russians in the pro gram announced yesterday for to night’s Tuesday Evening Music hour, at the school of music audi torium in which six students will appear.

Many Uphold Proposal To Change Plans Bi" Game at Corvallis for Webfoot Homecoming Is Criticized STUDENTS LAUD IDEA ^ ic Oppose Separation < Major Interest; 11 Opinions Differ % * - _ ^ lit and faculty opinion has bi £ -red both for and against th osed change in the Ore goi % rf, iccoming system which was ^ public last Friday by stat from Tom Stoddard, pres, e the student body, and Jack ,v. Benefiel, graduate mana ger. The proposal to make the Ore gon-Oregon State game the Home coming attraction every year whether played in Corvallis or Eu gene, has found more friends than opponents among the students, but the members of the faculty who were questioned on the prac ticality of the change regarding their stand seemed to be about evenly divided. Godfrey Upholds Plan George H. Godfrey, director of the Bureau of Public Relations:— “If we want to have a real Home coming every year, we must have a big game for it. This plan ap pears to me to be a real cure for the spiritless Homecomings which we witness here the years the Oregon State game is played in Corvallis. Jeannette Calkins, alumni sec retary and editor of Old Oregon: —I can’t see any possible good in this plan. The great body of al umni would drive from Portland and other cities to Corvallis for the game and return at once, with out taking the trouble to visit the Oregon campus. We always have a capacity crowd for the Oregon State game anyway, and merely making it the Homecoming game would not swell the gate receipts. And it would not seem like Home coming to the alumni. Homecom ing would not be Homecoming to them on the Oregon State cam pus.” Suggestion Criticized Harold Johnson, punior in busi ness administration: “I am in fa vor of the general idea, but it seems to me as though it would be rather hard on the alumni. And wouldn’t it tend to lower the gate receipts for the season? It cer tainly couldn’t add much to the Oregon State game receipts, and would of course cut down the at tendance of the game played in Eugene which would ordinarily be the Homecoming contest.” Joe Freck, junior in business ad ministration: “Why not? Stan ford and California have been working the same system for years and they are further apart than Eugene and Corvallis.” Bobby Robinson, football star: “I don’t think Homecoming would be Homecoming unless the game were here in Eugene.” “Tony” Peterson, Emerald busi ness staff: “I think that in this day and age of speed, that it is just the thing to do.’* John Anderson, star swimmer: “It’s a good idea; it would make every Homecoming a financial success.” Brad Harrison, tenni3 star: “It seems to rne that it is the only thing to do.” Bill Knox: “A great idea! I'm all for it!” Howe Will Have Operation Soon All Classes Have Been Taken by Professors Prof. H. C. Howe, of the Eng lish department, has given up all his classes for the rest of the term, and perhaps for spring term, to undergo a thyroid operation, it was announced yesterday. Professor Howe was bothered with thyroid trouble five years ago, and he recently has had a recurrence of this illness. The date of his operation has not been set, as he is not well enough to stand it at present. Howe had classes in survey of English literature, living writers, English poetry, and Shelley. All have been taken over by other teachers in the English depart ment except the poetry class, which has not yet been arranged for. And now comes the news that serenades after midnight at Ne braska university have been for bidden by police. For Producers of Finest Program Here it is!

Hoeber, head of the public speak ing department. Last Thursday afternoon during a practice meet ing S. Stephenson Smith, profes sor of English, assisted the team by giving a rebuttle. “Members of the faculty have been very kind in cooperating with me,” contin ued Dr. Hoeber.

This is the opinion of Verne G. Blue, assistant pro fessor of history, who traveled in the Orient last summer on a Mur ray Warner trailing fellowship. The main famine regions are in the north of China Shensu, Chi hli, and Shansi, the sections which are chiefly affected by the revo lution which is now taking "place in China. This is the agricultural region of China which is naturally subject to both floods and drought, and the ravages of contending re ligious factions, decrease in popu lation from disease or war, and the lack of seed grain, have brought on the worst Chinese fam ine in years. “Undoubtedly there is some can nibalism there, but no more than there ever is in such a famine,” says Mr. Blue. “I believe that the Red Cross isn’t even trying to do anything to relieve the famine but it is a problem too large for any organi zation to handle adequately. It is another complete, utter social dis integration.” The other parts of China are doing what they can to relieve the trouble in northern China, accord ing to Mr. Blue, but are hindered by lack of adequate means of transportation to so much of the afflicted area. “The stores of the famine re gions are becoming so depleted that even the armies are leaving, so the worst ravages may be dis continued and the problem may solve itself. The danger of sup plies being seized by rebels is one of the things that has prevented relief of the famine, but this fac tor may be eliminated soon, if the rebel armies leave,” states Mr. Blue.
