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

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

Burt Brown Barker, vice-presi

The audience numbered about
100, of which 63 voted. At the

be condemned, 20 that they should
not, and 18 were undecided.
After hearing the arguments,

negative, and seven were still un
decided. This gave Nevada seven
changes of opinion to Oregon’s

Johnson Hall as
City Power Plant
Oregon has been suffering rough
ireatment recently. 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

sue while in college.
