Turmoil in Japan
\ PECULIAR and unsavory brand of fascism is showing its
head in Japan, if indeed it is fascism.
The social beliefs of Nippon attach no great stigma to po
litical assassinations or assassins. The violation of the sacred
ness of the precincts of the emperor’s palace is, in the eyes of
Japanese, more to be condemned than the mere assassination of
a premier. For Shintoism is nationalism, emperor-worship, and
loyalty to death. Blood brotherhoods flourish in such an atmos
phere, and the turmoil of terrorism which has been brewing in
Japan is beginning to boil over.
First it was Premier Hamaguchi, leader of the liberal coali
tion which endeavored to stem the tide of destructive nationalist
sentiment. Next on the altar was Junnosuke Inouye, leader of
the minseito (peace) party, shot down just before the elections
These assassinations were in line with the Tirana of fascism
we know—rabid nationalism and Machiavellian diplomacy. But
the peculiarities of Japanese pseudo-fascism first became evi
dent in the assassination of Baron Takuma Dan, head of the
colossal Mitsui net of commerce and industry. More war, more
expansion, more power, were the desires of the new fascists.
And less capitalism, less exploitation.
And now Suyoshu Inukai has followed the others. Leader
of the Seiyukai (war) party, but strangely enough a conserva
tive, his permission of the conclusion of the peace at Shanghai
under the ministrations of British Ambassador Sir Miles Lamp
son angered the militarists who had contracted for the death
of Baron Takuma Dan. Less capitalism, not more, was their
aim in destroying Inouye, governor of the Bank of Japan, and
Baron Dan. More war, not less, led to the destruction of Inukai.
The assassins stated, when captured, that they wished to fur
ther expansion in Manchuria, but to the advantage of the masses
of Japan, not merely the industrialists.
The strange conjunction of anti-capitalism and nationalism
is new in the annals of the world. All fascists are anti-com
munist, as we know them. Is this new breed to differ, as an
albino or a sport?
Perhaps not. The aim of the army and navy men who com
mitted the latest terrorism was first to convince the civil gov
ernment of their disapproval of its policies in the matter of the
Chinese truce. Secondly, it was to demonstrate that the hour
is near when the constitutional government will be attacked by
the new forces. Like the 1922 March on Rome, fair warning
has been given, and bargaining by the civil power is invited.
Invasion of the very shadow of Hirohito's palace is further dis
play of the confidence which these new forces have in their
strength. Militaristic dictatorship, not party government, is
^4 POLL of college newspaper editors undertaken by the "Spec
tator," student publication of Columbia university, demon
strates once again the narrowness of the field of thought of
modern college youth. It brings up the oft-discussed but ever
important cpiestion of just what matters the average college
student considers worthy of attention and deliberation.
The “Spectator” poll questioned 102 college newspaper editors
on current political and economic questions. The questions deal
ing with political figures of the day such as Hoover, Roosevelt,
Garner, and so forth, were answered by a majority of the edi
tors. But when the questionnaire shifted to more abstract mat
ters, the number of those willing to voice an opinion shrank to
almost nothing. Just one felt qualified to say that Russia should
be granted recognition by the United States. Eighteen voted
for a reduction in the tariff, and two against. Eight voted for
cancellation of war debts, three against. Five voted for social
insurance, none against.
In the face of such an astonishing lack of interest in some of
the most important issues of the day. what conclusions can be
reached other than that students don’t know anything about
these matters and don’t care to know more. It isn't necessarily
a sign that college youth is going to pot, just because a “boop
boop-a-doop" will perk up an car where a question on the tariff
cant even get a rise. But it is a sign that a classroom lecture
doesn't penetrate very deeply, and that it strikes no responsive
chord within a majority of the students.
But no moralizing today. The editor's greeting this morning
should be a merry "hot-cha," nothing more. Why bother with
the tariff when we can still remember last week's dance? Hot
The Finishing Touch
JJY decision of the heads of houses Sunday the women ot the
University voted to continue their policy of retraining front
political line-ups in class elections.
The apathy which hovered over the recent A. S. U. O. elec
tions was sufficiently great to hide any great evidences of the
effect by the men, however, that the women were not lining up
definitely for certain candidates.
That the women have decided to carry over then newly
adopted policy to.class elections is a wise step, it would be
ridiculous “to attempt the reform in-one phase and not in all
Tbey are doing well to put the finishing touch on their effort,
to make possible real voting by individuals and not by mob^.

To the editor:
As I wa3 crossing the campus
Saturday afternoon I was horri
fied to see a group of young people
(presumably University of Oregon
students) climbing over the newly
unveiled statue of the Pioneer
Mother and posing thereon for
snapshots of themselves.
Doubtless it was a thoughtless |
act on their part, but to me it
seemed a downright desecration of
the spirit in which this splendid
memorial was conceived and of
the ideal for which it stands. What
is your opinion ?
Yours very truly,
E. Lenore Casford.
By BOB GUILD
It is spring term, more surely
tonight than ever before. Before
we came to college we read “Yale
Stories,” and in imagination sat
bareheaded on the quad, with li
lacs in bloom, banjos twanging
through the twilight, the male
chorus humming “Annie Laurie,”
and Frank Merriwell not far in
abeyance. College was a romance.
* * »
Nights and afternoons like to
day’s wc can recapture for a while,
if we wish, the romance of college.
“Gammer Curton” rehearses these
warm days on the grass behind
Villard. Bill Anderson with his
sleeves rolled up shouts his lines
from behind a tree. Madame Sey
bolt issues orders from the grass.
Everything is college.
Now that "Beggar's Opera” is in
its limbo we hear rumors of all
kinds. It is going to be a road
show; it is going to Portland; it
is this and that.. What we do know
is that it was jolly good fun while
it lasted, and that it is done, Steve
Smith is devoting his time and at
tention to his other love tennis.
* * *
The maestro gave a lecture on
jazz last year in Villard and packed
them in. This year he is giving it
at It o'clock on Thursday morning
in Villard, and charging a dime. If
there are enough dimes, Oregon
will meet the University of Wash
ington in Seattle in a tenhis match,
if not—good effort wasted.
* * *
I hate to plug his lecture by plead
ing for Oregon’s tennis team,
worthy as the cause is, for the lec
ture should be well patronized on
its own merits. Steve's prowess as
rostrum performer is well enough
known, his subject collegiately uni
versal. Vint Hall will perform the
comics on the Villard grand, Jo
Rice the concert jazz, to point the
“Lady Windermere’s Fan” Fri
day night, with Leonard Dart play
ing the protagonist role. Dart did
a fine job in “Journey’s End,” not
so long ago, and any of us fortu
nate enough to have seen that will
be there to see what he does with
a smart and sophisticated role. Ce
cil Matson and Jimmy Lyons
played in the last Wilde comedy
performed here and set a mark
high enough to require good shoot
ing to duplicate, but my advanoe
prognostication indicates an equal
ly good show.
School Chorus Holds
Rehearsal for Concert
A happy, interested crowd of
over a thousand Eugene school
students packed the east wall of
McArthur court yesterday after
noon. They were the 1000-voice
chorus of the city schools in final
rehearsal before their second an
nual concert, which is to be given
at McArthur court this evening,
starting at 8 o’clock.
The concert will be directed by
Ann Landsbury Beck, head of the
public school music department of
the music school and music super
visor for the Eugene schools.

“International Aspects of the
Present Business Situation,” will
be the subject of Dr. Victor P.
Morris, of the economics depart
ment, when he speaks during the
Emerald of the Air at 4:15 this af
ternoon. Dr. Morris will discuss
monetary standards, war debts and
reparations, the economic crisis in
central Europe, and other econom
ic factors of an international na
ture. He believes that the great
depths and long duration of the
business depression is due to in
ternational disorganization. His
talk will be 15 minutes in length.

CLARK S CAMPAIGN FOR U. S.
SENATOR CREATES REAL
The last few days have added decided color and zest
to the campaign for United States Senator. The biggest
boost to date for any one candidate is Governor Meier's
unqualified endorsement of Alfred E. Clark for the seat
now occupied by Senator Stciwer. Another shock to his
opponents and a source of satisfaction to the pronounced
drys of the state was the announcement by Clark himself
that he will oppose the repeal of the 18th Amendment
or the repeal of the Volstead Act until the people of Ore
gon repeal the prohibition amendment of the constitution
of this state, lie also calls attention to the fact that
repeal of the 18th Amendment would leave Oregon still
Iry with the whole cost of enforcement of the prohibi
tion law upon the taxpayers of this state. It is obvious
that this would be the first step toward nullification of
this portion of Oregon’s constitution.
His very effective plan for placing the lumber indus
try back upon a solvent basis with steady work for closed
mills and the now unemployed workmen; his record of
outstanding achievements for the nation during and
after the World War; his aid to dairymen and other co
operative organizations of producers in their recent ef
forts to obtain fair standards and fair prices; his efforts
for cheap hydro-electric power for every Oregon home
and industry, and his demand for adequate service and
lower rates for telephones have aroused vigorous com
ment among the voters of this state.
