Relief-Immediate and Permanent
JN line with a country-wide program for relief of the unem
ployed, downtown theatres are joining hands for the presenta
tion of a benefit midnight matinee show tonight. The proceeds
from the show are to be turned over to relief organizations to
distribute among the needy unemployed of the city.
No matter what our views of causes and cures for the present
economic depression, it cannot escape our notice that there is
great need for much sacrifice and liberal giving at the present
time. The millions of unemployed in the United States must be
taken care of during the winter. The Hoover plan for relief
may not be the best in the world, but it is the only plan avail
able that can be depended upon to any great extent. The des
perate situation makes it imperative that the relief program
receive our full support.
The theatres are making much easier the task of giving by
providing excellent entertainment for the evening. But while
we are giving and enjoying ourselves, let us keep in mind that,
though the program for immediate relief is a necessity, a far
greater work remains in the evolving of a program for perma
nent economic stability. Our devotion to one cause should not
blind us to the need of the other. A sound economic organiza
tion should remove the cause for widespread unemployment and
its accompanying distress.
Mr. Average Man Thinks
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving anil
the beginning of four days vaca
tion for millions of school children
and college students. The average
man has vague ideas about what
started Thanksgiving. Something
about Pilgrims or Indians and wild
turkeys, wasn’t it? It doesn't seem
to matter what started Thanksgiv
ing. Now it's a day of enormous
food consumption and important
football games. The average man
hopes all his fellow students en
joy a pleasant vacation.
* * *
As clear an explanation of the
college football situation as ever
was printed appeared in the editor
ial column of the Eugene Register
Guard Tuesday afternoon. William
M. Tugman, of the Guard, writes
in part thus: "East and West,
great numbers of students are
growing cold toward football be
cause too often players do not de
serve the rating of students and
because the play is too serious to
be called a game.” By "great
numbers of students,” Mr. Tugman
means the average college student,
whose ideas and thoughts on cur
rent topics are presented in this
* * *
At the risk of being told he does
n’t know anything about it the
average man wishes that some
thing could be done about the cur
riculum of the University. There
are too many required courses and
too many courses with too many
people in them. And too much em
phasis is given to grades. Alto
gether it’s TOO BAD. No doubt
changes would be made if they
were possible, that is, fairly possi
* * *
Eleven men of the beginning
class were publicly chastised today
for infractions of a code tradition
ally created and enforced by the
athletes on the campus. Nothing in
college life is more ridiculous and
comically pitiful than the spectacle
of a normal, intelligent human al
lowing himself to be beaten by an
other person because that person
happens to wear an emblem of su
perior physical strength.
Three of the freshmen were pun
ished for cockiness (a term without
meaning). Certainly anyone with
an egotistical nature will not he
cured through public punishment.
More likely to make him a martyr
» * *
Here is an argument often heard
on the campus. If football supports
the athletic program and gate re
ceipts at games are such an im
portant factor why must nearly
three thousand students go on pay
ing $5.25 per person each term
throughout the year? The total is
$15.75 each nine months of school
for the privilege of watching one
conference football game, four or
five basketball games and possi
bly the same number of baseball
games, if you care for baseball.
Looks like something is wrong
somewhere. For the real athletic
program of the University (intra
mural sports and gym classes) pro
vision must be made in the lax
budget of the state. The average
j man is beginning to wonder.
.Misalignment can cause
waste of power, loner gas
mileage. . . . Side-slipping
tires wear out too soon. . . .
Cars don’t steer properly.

to rip the limbs off the sapling in
the parking, he proceeds up the

a pick-axe which he has drawn
from his pocket. When he reaches

beside it for callers. The girl
comes to the door.)

a loss for the manufacturer who
must cut wages to keep from sus
taining the deficit. The final pic
ture completes the cycle. They
also offered the theory that wage
cutting has a bad psychological
effect on the morale of the people,
causing the hoarding of money, an
unfortunate business condition.
The negative arguments, how- '
ever, contended that wages and j
prices have not kept pace with
each other, resulting in a situation 1
in which the producer is unable to
make his business pay. He has had
to cut the wages of his workmen
in order to keep the right balance '
in his budget.

PROTESTS CO-OP POLICY
To the Editor:
I understand that the hours of
those working at the Co-op have
recently been lengthened without
due compensation. I notice that
the store is now open evenings,
but have not seen many people
trading there at these hours. I
wonder just how much it is cost
ing the store in light bills to ren
der this service, and if there is
enough increase in trade to justify
the extra expense, for certainly
some of those who buy in the eve
ning would buy in the daytime if
the store were closed nights.
In any case those who work
overtime should be paid for it. I
am not foolish enough to argue
that the increase in hours of those
working at the Co-op will in the
least delay the return of prosper
ity, but, if the student body of the
University of Oregon sets the pub
lic such an example in a time like
this, it is time we were closing
our economic theory classes and
teaching those in charge of stu
dent policies how to apply what
they have learned. Is it beneficial
to anyone for us to learn what
employers should do, and then vio
late those principles?

BOOKS OF THE DAY
EDITED BY ROY SHEEDY
By Sheila Kaye-Smith. Reviewed
by Aithine Rogers and Dot
Susan Spray, as a child, is ap-j
parently slightly touched in the!
head, for at one particular time in j
a thunder storm, when she is sup
posed to be working in the hay
fields, she becomes frightened and
runs home. She knows that her j
parents will probably whip her I
soundly, so she tells them that God
appeared to her in the storm and j
told her to run home.
Her parents are most supersti
tious and take her to church and
tell all of their friends about the
phenomenon. Susan becomes fa
mous at 10 years of age, as one of
God’s chosen prophets.
Susan keeps on preaching, and,
as a young woman, we find her
working on a farm and preaching
to the other farm hands. It is
while in this environment that she
meets a hop dryer and marries
him. In due time she becomes a
widow and utilizes that as an ad
vertisement, going about her
preaching and telling how the
Lord has afflicted her. She goes
on her reckless career and marries
a flashy young man, but eventu
ally the glamor of the romance
wears off and she divorces him.
Before the gentleman is conscious
of her plan, she has married a
The novel is well written and
shows a great deal of insight into
the life of the early and middle
nineteenth century. One gets the
feeling that the author fully un
derstands her heroine, and feels
sympathy for her. The reader
feels contempt for Susan Spray,
but at the same time, he can’t help
but admire her determination.
Sheila Kaye-Smith is one of the
best known of the present English
writers, and this book is considered
her best since “Joan of Godden.”
“Susan Spray” is a Book-of-the
Month selection for October. It
was published by Harpers.
The Heart Bomb
Of Aunt Eppie
Dear Aunt Eppie:
I have had a yen for a certain
lady of this fair city for a long
time, but have been unable to see
her because of my studies. With
Thanksgiving coming I see chances
of seeing the fair lady in the near
future. There is only one draw
back, her husband happens to be
a doctor in this town.
I hardly know how to advise you
in this matter. If her husband
were a plumber or the owner of a
livery stable, I would know what
to say, but since he is a doctor
about all I can say is, “Eat an ap
ple before you go to see the lady.”
