Some Students Petition
SELDOM do petitions accomplish a definite purpose, seldom do
^ they reflect the truest opinion of those who sign. For these
reasons we believe that petitions now being circulated for the
release of Robert Allen, ex-managing editor of the Emerald, from
activities probation will likely accomplish no good.
Whether or not each student who signs a petition feels most
conscientiously that the purpose toward which the petition lead
ers are working no one can tell. The circulation of the petitions
is in no way under the direction of the Emerald. Action prob
ably has been taken by those merely interested in the case at
hand. The Emerald is giving the petition space in the news
columns according to its news value. We agree with the petition
in so far as it conforms to the editorial statements made pre
viously in this column.
Students are at liberty to circulate petitions—though to gen
erate power promoters must be organized someone must assume
The Emerald has made its fight fought for what it believed
right, both in the interests of the student body and the associ
ated student government. Its ideas remain unchanged.
Pooling International Problems
* REMARKABLE unity of purpose of the International week
forum hour speakers Monday night was well indicated by
a chance arrangement in the listing of their main topics. Each
speaker addressed a living organization on a different feature
of international relations, yet the whole made one coherent sen
tence. Just as it was reported it is:
“The world is becoming smaller due to international de
pendency . . . and hence racial problems and prejudices are more
important ... so some such group as the League of Nations
must solve world relations problems . . . such as overpopulation
in Japan, . . . movements for decreasing illiteracy In Mexico, . . .
evil influence of nationalism, . . . remaking of world society to
fit world changes, . . . education for understanding minds, . . .
abolition of war, . . . friendliness to foreigners.”
Just as each of those topics barely treated the whole subject
and yet together made a consistent whole, just so each student
on the campus and each citizen of the world, by facing squarely
and understanding his own minor problems, can help create a
more ideal situation. Perhaps internationalism is too great for
one person to fully comprehend. In its very nature it would
seem to be so, since internationalism presupposes more than the
existence of one individual or nation, yet that limitation clearly
defines the method of procedure. Only by each student bringing
his own contribution in this campus International week, and by
each citizen bringing his in an era of greater internationalism,
can the project realize its end.
OCATIONAL guidance has long been one of those things
about which a college student may or may not have a vague
idea it has always been more or less of a hit and miss proposi
tion. Now, however, as far as Oregon women are concerned
there is a definite move under way to help co-eds select their
A committee has been chosen by the president of the Asso
ciated Women Students to work out a plan of vocational guid
ance and it is expected that the program will be ready to be
used during winter term.
There is no doubt but what a great many women on the
campus fail to realize just what opportunities there are open to
members of their sex in modern business. There is no need for
so many co-eds following in the footsteps of those of other years
who thought theii only chances for future employment lay in
the fields of teaching or stenographic work.
A real feature of the proposed guidance is found in the fact
that an organization of students is sponsoring the move. Tire
leaders oi the group fully realize the problems of the average
college woman and will be able to more intelligently help them.
It is a worthy cause and we wish it success.
When we wonder why some freshmen get homesick in spite of
dances, football rallies, and classroom interests, all we must do is
look up their home town. Probably it's in Ka. tetn Oregon and cloudy,
drizzly days here lack the appeal.
As Will Rogers says, “Any time you plan a revolution you had
better be on the winning side.”

SPEAKS OF HAWAII
(Continued from Tage One)
“Nice and quiet on my island?
Well, at times,” “Dee” began to
laugh. We were living in Waima,
a little town meaning ‘dirty water,’
which is the place Captain Cook
landed when he discovered the Ha
waiian islands. There was a sugar
cane field in front of us, and a
Catholic church and graveyard on
the left. We couldn't get the Jap
anese servants to go near the
graveyard, and the bell in the
church would ring so loudly it
would nearly shake our house
“Well, there was a mule stable
beside this, and on our right was
a Japanese school, where the
I studying is all done out loud; a
I Buddhist temple with another con
1 tinually ringing gong back of that,
and a Japanese and Filipino camp
behind this conglomeration. To
cap the climax, there was a pig pen
j near the beach from which the
; ocean breeze carried an unbeara
! fcle odor.
“The Napoli cliffs, which are
i back of our house, are the scene
| of Jack London’s ‘Kaulu, the Lep
er.’ The book is based on a true
occurrence, about 1000, when the
lepers, who were being transport
ed to Molokai, the leper colony,
escaped from the officers and lived
I among the cliffs for several weeks.
! “The 'Barking Islands,’ which
I the name describes, are 11 miles
j from home. Near them is the only
i place in the Hawaiian islands
j where a heavily loaded airplane
| can take off, as there is a two
mile clearance. It was here that
' Art Rogers, in the first flight from
(the United States to the islands,
I was discovered and saved.’’
; Although “Dee is fond of the
I states, she refuses to be torn away
' from the islands. “I will return to
Jthe islands next winter to teach.
II hope eventually to be connected
|with the social service work there,”
