Japan Boycott
Held Essential
In Settlemem
Faculty Members ThinI
El. S. Must Take Action
International Cooperatioi
Is Needed at Present,
Authorities Say
Concerted action on the part o
the United States and members o:
tlie League of Nations to force de
liberative settlement of the Sino
Japanese embroglio is held impera
tive by authorities on internationa
relations and economics on the
University faculty. They see ir
an economic boycott an effective
means to that end.
In statements released yester
day President Arnold Bennett Hall,
a nationally quoted authority on
political science; Dr. R. C. Clark
of the history department, who has
made extensive studies of the Unit
ed States foreign policy; Dr. Har
4 old J- Noble, assistant professor of
history who has specialized in
oriental history; Dr. Victor P.
Morris, professor of economics, and
Dr. John R. Mez, professor of po
litical science and economics, em
phasized the need for concerted
action to uphold international co
operation as opposed to interna
tional anarchy.
The statements were made yes
terday in response to a request by
the Emerald for prepared opinions
on concerted action involving the
United States and other leading
nations. They follow:
Nations Should Act
Dr. Hall—“Whether the United
States should join with the League
of Nations in the institution of an
economic boycott to force Japan
to adhere to the covenant policies
and other treaties raises a prob
lem of first importance. I believe
the time has come when the na
tions of the world are ready to
take collective action to prevent
any nation from obtaining illegal
gains by aggressive warfare.
“The importance of preventing
nations from violating established
treaties is so essential to the ef
fective system of international
jurisprudence that I believe that
America could well join with the
League of Nations in a program
for collective boycott to deprive
Japan of any of the fruits of any
action involving violation of exist
ing treaties, provided, of course,
the same ends cannot be achieved
by a less drastic action. If the
agreement between nations is
clear-cut and goes no further than
to prevent any advantage going to
Japan as a result of unlawful ag
gression and violation of treaty
rights, I believe it would be a move
in the ultimate furtherance of in
ternational peace. For the United j
States, however, to undertake any
action except in unanimity with!
the League of Nations would, in I

Leads Discussion
Karl W. Onthank, uean of per

discussion on “Family and Moral
ity in the New Civilization” at the
Y hut last night. Mr. Onthank’s
talk was the seventh of a series
of discussions on “The New Civi
Onthank Advises
Preparation for
Wedding Success
Marriage for Love Saitl To
Have Been Carried
To Extreme
“Better instruction, preparation,
and planning- for marriage are the
aids most needed for carrying out
a better program of family life
in the modern age,” declared Dr.
Karl W. Onthank, dean of person
nel, when he spoke on “Family
and Morality in the New Civiliza
tion" last night at the Y hut.
“It is necessary to sit down and
give thought and effort to the
problems of marriage if it is to
be made a success,” he said. “Fail
ures in marriage are largely
caused by factors that could have
been foreseen and avoided. Movies
and literature of the present time
are commonly not calculated to
prepare young men and women for
happy marriages, and to overcome
this there should be more of the
right kind of instruction available
in the home, schools and other so
cial institutions.”
The romantic marriage can be
said to have been carried to an
extreme in modern times, Dr. On
thank thinks. “Love is not eonugh.
Too many young people fail to
realize the inevitable social situa
tions that will have to be met.”
“The new ideal of marriage is
based on more than economics or
the sex relations alone,” Dean On
thank said. “It includes a respect
for individuality, education and
adjustment between the parties,
and a wholesome attitude toward
the expression of affection.”
Dr. Onthank sees no objection
to marriage before the man has
completed his professional train

Soviet Program Expounded
In Publicity, Mueller Avers
To the Russians one of the most
important aspects of the five-year
plan is letting the rest of the world
know about it. This is brought
about mainly through the Society
for Cultural Relations with For
eign Countries, an official organi
zation which sends out publications
in English, French, German and
Russian so that the world may
know what is going on among the
Soviets. On the desk of Professor
John H. Mueller of the sociology
department are several such pub
lications which he has been receiv
ing from time t6 time.
“Evidently with the intention of
getting a subscription out of me,”
Dr. Mueller remarked.
The chief organ of the Soviet
Union Society for Cultural Rela
tions is V. O. K. S., devoted “to a
review of economic and cultural
construction in the Soviet.’’ Put
out twenty times a year, it con
tains illustrations and articles un
der such headings as “From
Strength to Strength,” describing
socialist agricultural programs,
"Model Statute for an Industrial
Artel,” “Collectivisation and the
Country-Side in Contemporary Fic
tion,” “Creative Art in the Coun
try-Side,” “Modern Architecture
in the Soviet Union,” “The World
in the Light of Soviet Literature,”
and “Taxation of the Churches.”
At the end of the magazine a sec
tion written in Esperanto has also
been placed.
Another publication attempts to
tell its story through a novel
graphic treatment. Each division
of the industrial program, such as
mining, lumbering, and manufac
turing becomes a subject for one
complete number of the publica
tion. Various processes are de
scribed by means of still photo- i
graphs in a cinematic manner,
where movie camera tricks such
as close-ups, long shots and angle
shots are effectively put to use.

Silhouette Artist Describes
Intricacies ol Faculty Film
__ ★
. Figures Cut Out for ‘Priuce
/j Achmed' and Posed in
300,000 Scenes
“Prince Achmed,” Faculty
club cinema this week, will be
presented at the Colonial Sat
urday afternoon, at 1:15 and at
3:15, by request of many who
did not see it Thursday.
“Prince Achmed,” the Faculty
club film shown yesterday at the
Colonial, was not made at Har
vard, but in Germany, it was dis
! covered yesterday. The New York
Times for February 22, 1931, car
ried a story and an interview
I which explains many of the in
' tricacies of such a production.
“Mrs. Reiniger, a German sil
j houette artist," the article says,
j “and several assistants, including
Walter Ruttman, who designed the
expressionistic settings for 'The
j Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,' devoted
j three years of almost unbelievably
patient labor to the preparation of
I ‘Prince Achmed.’
j “Figures were cut out in card
board and sheet lead, articulated
and posed in 300,000 individual
scenes. The completed film, an
animated silhouette, presents a ro
mantic love story from the ‘Arab
ian Nights,’ introducing Achmed
Aladdin, the Princess Dinarzade,
the Magic Horse, the Sultan, and
the fairy Peri-Banou. In some of
the processions and court scenes
50 or 60 characters are shown
against shadowy backgrounds of
Oriental splendor.”
Mrs. Reiniger, in an interview,
described the painstaking con
struction of the film.
"At first I drew a picture of
Prince Achmed,” she said, ‘and
after wc were all convinced that
he must look just so, I silhouetted
him. Then I ‘built’ him out of
cardboard, wire, and thin sheet
lead, so that he might fulfill all
of his functions in the shadow play
in a natural and convincing man
ner. I articulated him—gave him
a movable head, neck, shoulders,
chest, abdomen, hips, legs, upper
and lower arms, knees, hands and
feet, fastened these together -with

Willainetle Teams
Will Meet Oregon
In Split Debates
Centralization To Be Topic
Of Contests in Eugene
Ami Salem
The University forensic squad
will engage the Willamette uni
versity debaters in verbal conflict
today on the question: “Resolved,
That congress should enact legis
lation providing for the central
ized control of industry.”
The dual meets, one in Salem
and one here, will be conducted on
the split team plan; that is, three
men from each school, neither
knowing on which side of the
question they will be called upon
to debate nor whether they will
debate at all, as only two men
compose a team, and will be sent
to the meets.
When the representatives meet
the six men draw for sides and
the contest will proceed with one
Oregon man and one Willamette
man on each side. Cross ques
tioning will also be one of the fea
tures of this innovation.
The Oregon speakers who will
figure in the contest here in 110
Johnson hall, at 4 o’clock, will be
Otto Vonderheit, Stephen Kahn,
and W'alt Evans. George Bennett,
Cecil Espy, and Rolla Reedy will
make the trip to Salem.
The freshman debate teams of
the two schools will also meet, the
affirmative in Salem and the neg
ative will compete here in room
110 Johnson hall at 3 o’clock.

I’ve heard ’em rant and rave
and tear their hair. I’ve blushed
at the invectives they’ve hurled
at the capitalists, and the in
famy of which they've accused
the government.
But you gotta give ’em credit.
They do know how to muscle in
on the big doings. Sometimes
It’s shoving their women sym
pathizers under mounted cops’
horses to make the headlines.
Sometimes it’s feeding starving
strikers—with soft soap. And
sometimes it’s picketing Mor
gan's office on Wall street.
They pulled a fast one yester
day. Crashed the meeting in the
Bronx at which Tom Mooney’s
84-year-old mother was to
speak, and took the spotlight—
probably got the “Bronx cheer,”
too, but they’re used to that.
Don’t lynch the Communists.
Give ’em enough rope and
they'll hang themselves.

Writing and Yellow Cat Are
Interests of Oldest Student
Don Diablo stretched his lazy
yellow body on the reporter’s coat
and and looked at her out of large
amber eyes as she interviewed the
oldest student on the campus, Mrs.
Elma T. Havemann, who isn't so
old after all.
True, her hair is soft silver and
her daughter, Elma Doris is a
junior in Romance languages, but
she is young for all that. Her hob
bies are writing and Don Diablo.
“Cats do clever things," she said,
"but they never do them when you
want them to. We had one cat for
16 years before we got Don D. We
missed him so, we didn't think that \
we’d ever have another. But we (
took Don D. to give him a home, j
and he runs the family now.”
I Mrs. Havemann lives with her
husband and daughter in Eugene
now, but her home is in Wood
burn. A married daughter lives in
San Francisco.
For a long time Mrs. Havemann
has taken correspondence work
from the University, and now she
is a special student in English. She
does not intend to work for a de
gree, since her stay in Eugene is
only temporary.
“I think if I were making a busi
ness of going to college,” she de
clared, “I’d enter all the activi
ties I could. But housekeeping
takes some of my time, and I like
to write.”
Rejection slips do not discour
age her. When a story or article
comes back, she simply revises it
and sends it out again. She had an
article, "Mother Gets a Haircut,”
published in the July, 1931, num
ber of the Master Barber magazine
and Beauty Culturist.
