(Special to yie Emerald)
PULLMAN, Wash., May 20.—
Oregon made it four straight to
day when they dropped the Wash
ington State Cougars, 10 to 7, in
their third encounter. Since leav
ing on their road trip the Web
foots have taken four out of five
Two big innings, the third and
fifth, in which Oregon scored nine
runs, made the victory possible. A
homer by Leland Chester, Duck
ji first sacker, in the fifth with two
men on, was responsible for three
runs. Five hits and an error in
the third brought in six runs.
Cougars Start Scoring
The Cougars opened the scoring
with a run in the first on two
walks and a single and two more
in the second on two hits and a
walk. Oregon found Fiscus, Cou
gar hurler, in their half of the
third, however, and four succes
sive singles by Stevens, Shaneman,
Chester and Scales, followed by
Vern Arnett’s double, brought in
the six runs.
Washington State nearly tied
the score in their half with two
more runs, made on two hits and
a walk. They fell one run short,
and the Ducks led 5 to 4.
Shaneman’s four-base clout in
the fifth gave the Webfoots an
8-to-5 lead, and two doubles by
Stevens and Palmer in the eighth
brought in the final Oregon tally.
Homer Final Effort
A home run with one on in the
^ eighth was the Cougars’ final ef
fort to win the game, and Ken
Scales held them scoreless in the
Kerm Stevens, Webfoot short
stop, was the star of the game.
He fielded every chance perfectly
and helped the Ducks out several

beautiful running catch in left

In addition to the one-year fel
lowship, Peterson was awarded the
David Olsen scholarship, carrying
with it a cash stipend of $320. The
service fellowships awarded to the
three Oregon men are for the
school year of 1931-32.

The three Oregon students are
among the few selected among ap

fellowships allow the holders of

the New York school for part of
the day and also of gaining practi

'Editor’s note: This is the fifth

many constructive ideas on reform
in student government.
The holding of student office she j
conceives as an opportunity of ser-:
vice to the University as well as
one of personal benefit from the
executive experience she will re
ceive as an office holder.
One of the reforms that Miss
Powell suggests is an increase in
the number of regularly scheduled
student body meetings. In this
manner she believes more interest
will be aroused in A. S. U. O. ac
tivities. She suggests that na
tionally-known speakers be en
gaged for these meetings, and that
entertainment by student talent,
the band, and musical groups be
presented to the student body.
Student politics should have less
to do with committee appoint
ments, thinks Miss Powell. They
shouldn’t, she believes, be handed
around to everyone just because
they happened to be on the win

to students who are qualified re

Pan-Islamic Move
Topic of Hazam’s
Broadcast Today
History Professor To Talk
On Emerald Hour From
KORE at 4:45
“Islam in the Modern World”
will be John G. Hazam’s subject
when he speaks this afternoon
during the regular Emerald edito
rial hour over station KOEE at
4:45. Mr. Hazard, who is a pro
fessor of history, is well-versed on
subjects concerning the Orient,
having supplemented his studies
with actual visits to the Near
East. His talk will be one of the
series being sponsored by the Em
erald during the daily 15-minute
programs, which are put on
through the courtesy of the Ore
gon Pharmacy.
Islam Problem Important
“The problem of Islam is more
important than most people real
ize,” Mr. Hazam said yesterday.
“It concerns the status of Europe
and Europeans in the mind of the
entire Mohammedan world, for the
Pan-Islamic movement, which is
spreading from India through the
Near East, and all along the Medi
terranean coast of Africa to Trip
oli, is aimed against European
dominance in these sections; The
Muslims want independence and
the right to govern themselves.
The French and British control
great portions of the land inhab
ited by the Muslims, and it is
against these in particular that
the movement has been launched.
“The Pan-Islamic movement was
begun in the nineteenth century,
and it has since become justified,
because the European attitude to
ward foreign problems is always
in terms of their own customs and
traditions, whereas the far differ
ent ideas and traditions of the
Asiatics seem to be just as valid
as those of the Westerner.”
Reaction Religious, Political
The reaction against Europe is
not only religious but it is also
political and it has shown indica
tions of remaining a permanent
factor in the world’s relations, Mr.
Hazam thinks. The Mohammedan
religion is unusually democratic in
principle, and for that reason the
adoption of western forms of gov
ernment on an independent basis

Candidates for
Offices To Be
Named Today
Classes Slate Meetings
At Villard
Three-Cornered Race Still
On for Senior Posts;
Elections Near
After two weeks of work in lin
ing up tickets and support for class
elections, the politicians of the
campus have finally completed
their task and all is in readiness
for formal nomination of candi
dates, which will take place at
meetings of the freshman, sopho

ternoon and evening.
Despite rumors which have been
circulating for the past few days
of a combination of two of the
tickets in the three-cornered race
for senior class offices no change
has been announced as yet, and the
campaign continues with an In
dependent man and two fraternity
men in the field for the class pres
idency, with tickets behind them.
Free-Lancers Doubtful
Candidates for sophomore and
junior class offices are, according
to available information, limited
to two for each position, and no
free-lance candidates are expected
I to enter the field against the power
, possessed by party candidates un
der the present ticket system of
campus politics.
No candidates have as yet been
announced for the position of sen
ior class barber, but with this ex
ception two of the tickets are now
complete, announcement having
been made yesterday of the candi
dacy of Alice Redetzke for sec
retary. The third ticket will enter
the field with one position vacant,

Juniors To Hold
Final Meeting at
Villard Tonight
Use of Week-Eiul Profits,
Class Picnic To
Be Decided
Several important matters will
be taken up by the junior class
when it holds its last meeting of
the year at 7:15 tonight in 107 Vil
lard, it was announced yesterday
by Art Potwin, class president.
While the meeting has been
called primarily for the formal
nomination of candidates for class
offices next year, other business of
importance to the entire class is
to be brought up, Potwin said.
The matter of what disposal
shall be made of the profits from
Junior Week-end this year is to be
laid before the class at tonight’s
meeting. Several suggestions have
already been made, and a final de
cision will be reached tonight.
The question of a class picnic
will also have a part in the dis
cussions of the class in its final
meeting, Potwin said.
“Inasmuch—as this is the last
meeting of the class for the year
and decisions on important mat
ters are to be made, it is urgent
that we have a large attendance,”
Potwin stated last night. “We
want every member of the class
to be on hand for this final meet
ing at 7:15 tonight.”

their intentions of attending the
annual Oregon Advertising con
clave to be held here Saturday and
Sunday under the auspices of Al

Portland late last night,
Tonkon and Peterson attended
the Wednesday luncheon meeting
of the Advertising club of Portland

General Butler
Would Be Real
College Fellow
Writer Finds General
Unlike Conception
‘■Figliling Marine’ Favors
University Training
For Police
The stormy petrel of the. marine
corps. Major General Smedley D.
Butler, would have been a college
fellow of the first order. It takes
enthusiasm to get anywhere, and
General Butler certainly has it.
And what is more he shoots
straight from the shoulder, he is
sincere; but he is not a fire-eater
unless, perhaps, when someone
tramples on ong of his pet ideas.
The popular conception of Gen
eral Butler that he is running
around looking for trouble is all
wrong. When he consented to an
Emerald interview at the S. A. E.
house last night, where he visited
for a short time, he gave exactly
the opposite impression.
His hair is close-cut, and gray;
he wears a light gray suit and
black shoes—only his eyes and
forceful speech give evidence of
the man whc. unwittingly achieved
world fame ; few weeks ago. He
refuses to be old, however; he re
fuses to show his 59 years.
His one ambition while in the
state of Oregon is the founding
of a state police force, much like
that which now patrols Pennsyl
vania, and most of the conversa
tion was spent in his explaining
of his plans.
“There isn’t any question about
whether or not college men have
the best chance in police work.
But any applicant must stick to
it, and make it his life work. State
police will have plenty to do.
They perform tasks all the way
from handling strikes to bringing
chocolate bars to starving chil
dren. I imagine they will be called
upon even to treat sick cows, or
help women go to market.
“I strongly advocate university
training for police workers. When
we organized the Pennsylvania
system, we introduced a course in
criminology at the University of
Pennsylvania, for future officers.
Schooling helps to teach discipline,
and we must have a military po
lice system, where an officer can
walk along the street and be
hissed at without being ruffled at
all, but who will go into action
when the crowd starts breaking
"And the system must be be
yond bribery, beyond corruption.
It must have fine young men as
its nucleus, and with the gover
nor of the state at its head, where
local corrupting influences are al
most impossible, it will rise to a
point of esteem within five years
when the every-day citizen will
point them out and say 'There’s
our police.’
“I never went to college, and I
suppose I could have, but 33 years
ago I ran away from home to join
the marines. I didn’t know what
I was missing. I’ve known lots
of college fellows. Johnny Beck

'Hotel Universe’ Near Perfect
On Final Night, Critic States
The final performance of “Hotel
I Universe’’ last night was a near
| perfect unity of sound, light, set
ting, and interpretation which
combined to leave with the crowd
ed theatre audience a sense of the
infinitude of time, where the
memory and dreams reign.
The ethereal quality of the play
was enhanced by a slight improve
ment in tempo in the first scenes
over the Monday night perform
ance. The zest of the cynicism
and wit in the first scenes brought
applause from the audience in
Guild theatre, and captured the
immediate spirit of bitterness and
hopelessness which characterized
the attitude of the characters to
ward life’s values.
The play shows excellent atten
tion to the details which make
the lighting—particularly the con
tinuously recurring flash from the
distant lighthouse—second in im
portance to the acting used to |
produce the effect of the detached,
and timeless spirit of the play.
Dorathi Bock, who plays the
role of Ann Field, lived her part
and portrayed it not only by voice
and facial expression but by the
movements of her whole body. She
was to be envied in her scenes of
serenity and understanding, and to
be pitied in her pleadings for the
love of Pat Farley. Her voice
was particularly adapted to taking
on the spiritual quality of her
lines in the scenes in which she
relived her past romance with Pat.
Stephen Field, Ann’s father,
whose closeness to the world
“which frees us from time and
space," was played by Carl Klip
pel. As Mr. Field, Klippel became
in turn to each of the characters
the object of the.r illusions and
repressions and led them each
back to the normal,’ happy state
of mind where they might con
sider life in all its aspects and be
