A Smith Flays Condemnation
Of Nippon Attack as Unjust
“I haven’t any patience with a
too ready condemnation of Japan,”
said Warren D. Smith, professor
of geology and geography in re
gard to the present Chinese-Japan
ese war. “While I think the activ
ities on the part of the Japanese
have gone too far, I think that
Japan has a real equity in the sit
“My personal sympathies are
with the Chinese because Man
churia as far as I know has been
considered a part of China, though
the Manchus have in times past
ruled over China. However, the
Japanese point of view cannot be
neglected. She has been forced to
go somewhere, not only for land
but particularly to get coal and
f iron both of which she is in great
need. Her soy bean export busi
ness is another big interest of hers
which she doesn't want endan
gered,” he said.
Dr. Smith pointed out that only
one-twelfth of Japan's area is ara
ble which condition forces her to
reach out for more territory for
her rapidly growing population. In
order that Japan may take care
of her people she must be on an
industrial basis, believes Mr. Smith,
and industrialism calls for coal
and iron. These products have
been denied her in almost every
other direction.
For nine years Professor Smith
was in charge of the bureau of
mines in the Philippine Islands.
During his stay in the islands he
said that the Japanese were try
ing to get concessions particularly
of iron deposits but they were not
allowed to do so. “So she is now
turning to Manchuria. Manchuria
has many iron deposits which the
' Japanese have long had their eyes
j upon. She also needs Manchurian
j lumber.
“The question as to what the
1 League of Nations can do about it
naturally arises,” continued the
geologist. “It can not. do much in

Harvard-Oxford Forensic
Encounter To Be on Radio
NEW YORK—(IP)—Tentative
plans of the National Broadcasting
company call for an international
debate by radio between Harvard
and Oxford universities some time
in the first week of December.
The argument, between the two
schools 3000 miles apart and sep
arated by the Atlantic ocean, will
be rebroadcast in this country to
the national hookup of the NBC,
and it is probable that the British
Broadcasting company will do the
same in England.
The event, the first of its kind

Pre-Law Adviser
Schedule Revised
For Winter Term
Grouping of Classes To Be
Put Into Effect Here
A reorganization of the adviser
schedule for all the pre-law stu
dents on the campus goes into ef
fect immediately with the posting
of the new list today by Dean
Wayne L. Morse, of the law school.
The plan just going into effect
automatically groups the students
by classes, these in turn being as
signed to members of the law
school faculty. The old adviser as
signments for pre-legal students
are definitely cancelled.
In general the advisers in the
future will be: freshmen, Claire
and Howard; sophomores, Hollis;
sophomores and juniors, Spencer.
The name of each student and
that of his adviser is posted in the
glass bulletin board of the law
school on the second floor of the
Oregon building.
It is necessary that pre-legal
students go to their new advisers
during winter term registration,
and in order to get their new as
signment they must consult the
list immediately.
The new advisers are also to be
consulted before registration if the
student wishes to take up any of
his problems with an adviser in the
Dr. Rainey’s Installation
At Bucknell Scheduled
Former Oregon Professor Is New
A report on the inauguration this
month of Dr. Homer Price Rainey,
University of Oregon professor of
education from 1924-28, as presi
dent of Bucknell university at
Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, has been
received by Dean James H. Gilbert
from F. D. Struck, class of 1911
and now head of the department of
industrial education at Pennsyl
vania State college.
Mr. Struck writes that the trend
of thought which ran through all
the addresses at the ceremonies
was that ‘‘the chief function of a
liberal arts college is to develop in
America a greater sense of public
responsibility in political, economic,
social, and educational affairs.”
Dr. Rainey, while at Oregon,
specialized in school administra
tion as professor of education and
wrote several articles for Oregon
publications, among them ‘‘Liber
al versus professional training”
I for the Oregon Educational Jour
| nal of 1930.
He had been president of Frank
I lin college, Franklin, Pennsylvania,

Over NBC Circuit
Honors Webfeet
Doc Spears and the University
of Oregon football squad were to
be guests of honor at a special
Webfoot program broadcast Fri
day night at 10 o’clock from the
NBC studios in San Francisco, but
the Oregon contingent had already
started north before the message
was sent them.
Speeches from the coach and
from each member of the team had
been planned by Jennings Pierce
of the NBC who arranged the pro
gram. An interview from Doc
Spears was to be on the broadcast.
The early departure of the Web
foots after their encounter with
St. Mary’s Gaels at Kezar stadium
Thanksgiving day, did not stop the
Oregon program from being put
on the air, however, and a very
satisfactory broadcast was pre
sented. Oregon songs and an or
chestra and quartet, an interview
with Lloyd Yoder, San Francisco
football referee, and the selection
of an all-Coast team filled out the
hour program.

Modern Football; an Amateur
Game as Viewed by C. Gauss
Practically every college in the
country has subsidized athletes, de
clares Dean Christian Gauss of
Princeton in an article in Decem
ber’s Scribner’s magazine. He does
not even exempt those institutions
which escaped the censure of the
Carnegie Foundation bulletin last
Although colleges have codes of
amateurism in which the subsidiz
ing of athletes is forbidden, in vir
tually all colleges, even the best,
this rule is violated in secret as a
result of private alumni enterprise,
writes Dean Gauss in the Scrib
ner’s article called “Our Profes
sional Football Amateurs.”
Quoting Chief Justice Hughes
when Governor of New York that
"we cannot expect to have an hon
est horse-race until we have an
honest human race,” Dean Gauss
details incidences of alumni subsi
dizing of athletes without the
knowledge of the college and in
some cases without the knowledge
of the athlete himself. He tells oi
an alumnus who increased the sal
ary of one of his employees whose
son was a good fullback; of anoth
er halfback who was manager of a
student store and got his revenue
from kind alumni friends who prof
fered a ten dollar bill for a ten cent
cigar and told him to keep the
change; of a third star who was
receiving a monthly retainer fee
from a gentleman concerned with
holding the young man’s services
so high that he might run, a farm
four years hence.
If cases of this sort are frequent
ly hidden from faculty committees,
the undergraduates themselves of
ten sense that something is wrong,
writes Dean Gauss. In a recent in
vestigation on 40 colleges, conduct
ed by acting Dean Smith of the
University of Illinois, it was found
that on practically every campus
undergraduates believed that the
athlete received graft.
“I do not believe that any col
lege, even those listed by the Car
negie report as simon-pure, can
possibly guarantee that all players
