Real Issues at Stake
TF there was ever any question in the minds of students as to
the ability of the student parliament to find things to discuss
at its meetings, that question should be answered now and for
ever after. The steering committee has lined up a program
for the meeting tonight that is of sufficient importance and pop
ular interest to bring to the meeting not only every student
delegate on the campus but many spectators. And on the action
taken by the parliament on one proposal of the steering com
mittee rests the future of student government on this campus.
We refer to the proposal to make the student parliament a legis
lative body within a year.
It should be evident to anyone that the parliament without
legislative power does not belong in the scheme of government.
Without this power it is in no sense an agent of government.
But give it the right to legislate and immediately there is cre
ated an efficient representative body for the transaction of stu
If opposition does form to the proposed resolution of the
steering committee, it will undoubtedly spring from the minds
of those who fear that the granting of real power to the parlia
ment will result In the destruction of efficient student govern
ment. The fallacy of this contention is obvious enough if it is
taken into consideration that the function of the parliament
should be the determination of general policy and not of detailed
The students should certainly have it in their power to out
line the course their government should take. To deny this is
to admit that the present system is autocratic and that the
autocracy should be perpetuated. The present system being of
this nature, it is oniy a logical stop that a more democratic
system be instituted at once. The year’s limit for the taking of
legislative power by the parliament is not too short. If the old
system can be rooted out and a suitable new plan prepared at
once, the change should then come as soon as conveniently pos
sible. In any case, the parliament should definitely state its
France Faces Left
'T'HE assassination of the president of France may not mean
x much to some University students. The loss of 75-year-old
Paul Doumer, militant friend of French war veterans, is less
significant to us than are the results of the Sunday elections.
Herriot, strong man of the “left” factions, probably will form
the new cabinet. A new regime looms on the horizon.
With the entry of the radical socialist left center coalition
the world may expect a more reasonable, more cooperative
attitude in French diplomacy at Geneva from now on, and at
Lausanne next month, oven accepting the fact that French pol
icy changes slowly.
The stolid insistence of Tardieu upon "security" has blasted
the brilliant hopes we held last February for the Geneva con
ference. Yet Herriot may redeem something from the mass, He
favors peaco, reductions of arms, conciliation.
The election of Albert Lebrun to the presidency by the senate
and chamber of deputies also is less important and less interest
ing to us than the high hope we hold that the spirit behind the
great liberal victory of Sunday may be more Ilian a change of
personalities. Can it mean a deep-rooted dissatisfaction of the
French people with the isolationist policies of the conservatives
and rightists? Does it portend a return to the cordial relations
of better days? Does it mean a revival of Driand's doctrines
of peace and good will?
If France were to forget for a moment her hatred of Ger
many, her greed for control of the Danubian basin, her disas
trous stubbornness in the matter of arms and “security,” the
world would gain greatly by it, and France along with the rest
of us. The wolf of economic disaster is at last at her door.
Lets be good fellows about it. We’re all caught in the same
economic tornado. United we stand, divided we fall -the United
States of the World.
Portland seems to be blocking out its population. There's
the 400. the Committee of 50, the Committee of 500. the to.ooo
unemployed, the 100,000 school children, and the several dozen
newspapermen who keep track of all the others.
The Portland police towed an uverparked car to their garage,
where the owner redeemed it. But lie paid the bill w ith a lead

By V. H. Hoi
Flowing constantly from the
pens of writers today are millions
upon millions of words which will
soon go to the presses and be pre
sented to the reading public as
mpdern books. Presses forever
whirringly produce second, third,
fourth, fifth, and many more edi
tions of works that are to be pur
chased and absorbed by those who
still hope to "catch up.”
When we pick up a book it may
be only one that has been emitted
along with this accellerating pro
duction, yet it may be one that
stands out from all others as a
masterpiece and a creative piece'
of art with potential powers of j
influence and impression. Perhaps j
we will read this book. As soon
as we have done so it will melt in
our memory and shift about so
that its completeness has been re
grettably diffused. As more time
elapses its outline, its unity,
breaks down more and more until
we -can claim only a handful of
impressions or a few clear points
which, if we are lucky, will emerge
out of that fog-like haziness.
This is true with most books,
speaking in a general way. And,
unless the book in question will
gracefully stand a second reading,
it will remain just as obscure.
One cannot re-read all the great
books in the world, and this is the
lamentable part of it. A new book
is a new friend that must be
watched closely and analyzed as
relationships become more inti
mate. All must be taken from it
upon short notice.
When we discuss a book we
mu3t build our criticisms upon a
general impression and out of our
memory of the high places. We
can never feel definitely certain
that our judgments are accurate.
Like the reviewer, we check back
for another glimpse of what we
so vaguely remember if for no
other reason than to ease our con

Faville Takes Finance
Lesson From Policeman
Dean David E. Faville of the
school of business administration
took a succinct lesson in finance
from Police Judge R. S. Bryson
For neglecting to have all four
wheels of his motor car solidly
planted in the gutter, the dean
was made the recipient of what in
police parlance is known as a
“ticket.” The recorder made known
to the offender that no provision
of the city code nor the state mo
tor vehicle law permitted parking
one wheel on the sidewalk.
To emphasize the point Judge
Bryson ordered him to pay a fine
of $1—and he paid it.
