k. VOLUME XXXIII___UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 1932_NUMBER 90 Fifty-Seven Students Ordered To Report For Immunization Smallpox Case Demands Speedy Action Dispensary Will Vaccinate Free; To Remain Open Until 2 o’Cloek Fifty-seven students must re port to the University dispensary today for vaccination against smallpox to prevent a possible spread of the disease on the cam pus, Dr. Fred N. Miller, director of the health service, said last night. There is no cause for alarm in this statement, however, Dr. Miller said. So far only one case of the disease has been found on the campus, and the student in ques tion, Ray Foss, junior in business administration, has been sent to his home in Florence for quaran tine. 200 Students Exposed Nearly 200 students who were exposed to the disease in classes with Foss have already reported to the dispensary for vaccination, according to health service author ities, but the remaining 57 must check in today in provision with the laws of the state board of health. "It is essential that we handle this situation with speed and dis patch,” Earl M. Pallett, executive secretary, said yesterday, "even though there be no cause for alarm.” Vaccination Free of Charge The University health service will vaccinate without charge all students not recently successfully vaccinated. For the convenience of students who may have classes all morning, the dispensary will re main open from 1 to 2 this after noon to vaccinate students or an swer questions concerning the re quirement, Dr. Miller announced. Regular dispensary hours of 9 to 12 in the morning will be devot ed to caring for students who re port. The list of those students asked to comply with the health service’s appeal is printed else where. Smith Speaks on Orient At Edison Seliool Meet Continuance of Jiu-Jitsu Methods Prescribed for Japan Warren D. Smith, professor of geology, spoke before the Edison School Parent-Teachers’ associa tion Wednesday evening, using as his topic, “Out of the East: Side lights on the Orient.” In his talk Dr. Smith discussed the relation of rice growing to race survival; the doctrine of non-violent resistance in India; and jiu-jitsu, which is generally known in America as a form of wrestling, but which is a means of defense and philosophy of liv ing in Japan. In these contests, the adversary contributes to his own downfall with his own over reaching strength. “I think that Japan, because she has adopted western methods, will finally lose out in her contest with China, because she has laid aside ^ her jiu-jitsu methods. She will overreach herself,” stated Profes sor Smith. The geologist also touched on “teaism,” which embraces the ceremonies, aesthetics, and philo sophy of tea. These four topics throw consid erable light on the peoples of the Orient, and point out striking dif ferences between them and our selves. Porter To Discuss Gandhi At Sunday Evening Forum “The Life of Mahatma Gandhi” will be the topic of R. B. Porter, secretary of the University Y. M. C. A., Sunday night at the regular evening forum of the Congrega tional church. Mr. Porter spent five years in India and has kept in touch with the sentiment of the people of In dia, through two publications which he receives regularly. Mr. Porter will speak on the same subject at the morning stu dent service of the Methodist church. k- - Week Extension For Registration In Contest Made 'T'HE PERIOD of registration for the 1932 Polyphonic tro phy contest will be extended to next Saturday, it was an nounced last night.

Nevada Debaters Victorious in Tilt With Co-ed Team jMen Successfully Defend Divorce Law of Tlieir Home State The University of Nevada men’s negative debate team won an audi ence over the Oregon women in the meet held in the Methodist Epis copal church, last night. The ques tion was: “Resolved, That the di vorce laws of the state of Nevada should be condemned.” Burt Brown Barker, vice-presi dent of the University, presided as chairman throughout the formal debate and the open discussion which followed. The audience numbered about 100, of which 63 voted. At the commencement of the debate, 25 stated that the divorce laws should be condemned, 20 that they should not, and 18 were undecided. After hearing the arguments, 29 voted the affirmative, 27 the negative, and seven were still un decided. This gave Nevada seven changes of opinion to Oregon’s four. The vote on the debate itself, based on the manner of address and presentation, resulted in 33 being cast for Nevada and 13 for Oregon. The Oregon speakers were Ber nice Conoly and Geraldine Hickson, both experienced in intercollegiate debate. The Nevada representa tives were Granville Fletcher and Vincent Casey, who are making a speaking tour of the Northwest. The case of the affirmative was built up on the theory that they were for easy divorce, but not that (Continued on Page Four) Psych and Econ Exchange Blows Befo re Charley ! 2+2=4.

California took it upon themselves to claim Cra ter lake. A New York newspaper credits Mount Hood to Washing ton. Multnomah falls has been juggled unmercifully. The Pacific Municipalities maga zine, which, needless to say, is printed in San Francisco, Califor nia, blossoms forth with a picture of Johnson hall on its cover which contains all the aesthetic elements. But glance below and what do you read ? You read “Hydro-Elec tric Power and Light Plant, Eu gene, Oregon.” There is a caption! It is to be admitted that the power produced through facilities of Johnson hall is amazing, but where is the light? Has any col lege student ever seen it ? Of course, in getting the city and state correct they are to be complimented. We'll wager, how ever, that they will attempt to claim that the sunshine is a Cali fornia product.—They can have Mt. Lassen though.'
