The Spirit Lingers On
rpHE "Mail Bag” column of our local paper is a prolific source
of amusing ideas. Only yesterday there appeared a letter
from one of our sturdy citizenry denouncing the policy of buy
ing products from other states. He vehemently condemned the
purchase of California produce just because we do not grow
them here. He even went so far as to declare that the human
race "is not far enough advanced to use automobiles and high
ways.” We should stay in the same place.
Do not smile, gentle reader, at the philosophy of the corre
spondent. For it is no more ridiculous than the nationalistic
policies of tariff and isolation espoused by our governmental
dignitaries in their daily antics at Washington. Like the author
of the "Mail Bag” contribution, our senators and statesmen hold
up their hands in holy horror at our international trade, and
forthwith erect tariff barriers to keep out the foreign merchan
dise. The "Buy British” mania that is sweeping over the Eng
lish nation is mute evidence that the communicant to the Reg
ister-Guard is not alone in his folly.
Similarly, we have refrained from lending our influence to
the maintenance of world peace, by standing by a policy of iso
lation that has made us the object of criticism of every civi
lized nation. Political propaganda has kept us out of the World
Court and the League of Nations, two institutions conceived by
one of our foremost statesmen for the perpetuation of inter
national accord.
In the midst of an international crisis, it is fitting to review
the situation and inquire to what extent our nationalistic fervor,
has been responsible for the far-flung discord that confronts
us. How much has flag-waving hysteria affected our judgment
of the value of international amity? How far has it gone in
developing an arrogance that has aroused the criticism of the
world? How great a factor has it been in imposing a tariff
burden that has crushed international trade, stifled industry and
all but defeated the Republican party? We are slowly emerging
from a period of intense nationalism, but the spirit lingers on.
More and more is it becoming apparent that international
cooperation must supplant national egotism. Economically and
politically we must join hands with the other nations, for the
reverberations in one corner of the globe arc felt the world over.
And neither covering our ears with our hands, nor shouting the
anthem of nationalistic supremacy can drown out the din of
disaster that now envelops us all.
Twenty-Five Plus Forty-Three
/jj TWENTY-FIVE seniors chosen to Phi Beta Kappa.
Forty-three seniors, graduate, and medical students
elected by Sigma Xi.
The spring's annual flock of elections to honorarics comes
to a climax in the announcement of members to l'hi Beta Kappa
and Sigma Xi. No other honorarics, probably, are so highly
coveted, and none have such high requirements.
Departmental honorary fraternities are very fine for recog
nition of achievement in special fields. But we do not hesitate
fo say the wearers of a Phi Bete or Sigma Xi key have con
sistently worked harder and more thoroughly than the great
percentage of department honor group members.
To the newly elected members of academical two hurdest
to-get honorarics, the Emerald and the campus extend felicita
tions and praise.
The “Believe It or Not" appearing in yesterday's Emerald
saying that Judge Deady was anti-University is eclipsed today
by news emanating from Corvallis that Oregon State is opposed
to consolidation with U. of O. on the college campus.
One of our campus politicians is hard at work supporting
Sheriff Bown for re-election with the war cry of freedom from
fanaticism and tolerance of administration. Campus voters
should fail hard for this line.
Dr. Clarence True Wilson, general secretary of the Methodist
board of temperance, is telling the Methodists that they "are
going to elect a president and vice-president for a Christian
republic and for a prohibition nation." But he neglects to say
what nation.

A Decade
May IT, 1922
Theatres in Eugene are very
much like theatres in any other
city of its size. One cannot go to
the same consistently and be as
sured of an excellent picture each
time. Yet Eugene s rarely without
a good movie and there are times
when it is difficult to eliminate
any in town.
When the Heikg pictures “are
good they are very good, but when
they're bad they’re horrid.” Weeks
ago I attended a Thrill-o-Drama
production there that afforded
amusement beyond words because
it contained all the required ele
ments of the good old melodrama.
It had the beautiful, but shy, hero
ine who was being courted by the
slinking, be-moustached villain, and
persecuted by her father because
she would have none of this man.
This all has little to do with my
present subject, but it was because
of that rare production that I at
tended the Heilig Sunday night.
The billed feature was one of which
I had never heard and my mood
was such that I could enjoy another
similar to the other melodramatic
Had I read the cast more care
fully I would not have received the
surprise I did. I had heard of the
Ferguson case, but I thought this
would be a much overdone embel
lishment of the most gruesome de
tails. But the picture, “The Fergu
son Case,” was a carefully, sensi
bly, and artistically directed pic
ture. It developed into an accurate
story of the ever-existing conflict
between the conservative and the
radical newspapers. To do a thing
like this the story had to be con
vincingly written and wittingly
played. It had to be realism of the

. truest sort. It had to be minus
the sentimentality that vainly tries
to play upon an unemotional audi
ence. This picture was all of these
and more. The plot, which was
none too intricate, was handled
with such skill that the pulsating
tension held until a remarkably
strong climax came with delightful
i unexpectedness.
It may be said that "The Fergu
son Case” was too much of a copy
after the "Five Star Final,” but to
me it had all the earmarks of an
original newspaper photoplay.

Dr. Hall Gets Fund From
Rockefeller Foundation
During Trip East
A gift of $13,000 for research
work in the University medical
school was announced here Satur
day by Arnold Bennett Hall, presi
dent of the University. The gift is
the contribution of the Rockefeller
Foundation of New York and will
be spent c1'.. Jng the next two
During a recent trip east, Dr.
Hall impressed the foundation with
the wisdom of the new plan of re
organization here, with the scheme
of functional deans, and with the
attitude of the board in conserving
the medical school and consolidat
ing all work in nursing with this
part of the organization.
The appropriation is made upon
an annual basis of $6,500 for a pe
riod, which time is considered nec
essary for the completion of these
studies. The particular problems
to be presented under this fund are
with reference to the cause and
possible cure of certain forms of
anemia, the maintenance of re
search assistants in the department
of anatomy, physiology, pathology,
medicine and surgery in the medi
cal school, and investigations in
various aspects of diabetes, infec

tonight behind the power of a dom

The income and corporation
rates—higher than those voted by
the house and far above the exist
ing level—were approved without I
even roll calls. The opposition
failed in two new attempts to!
joost the income levies even higher.1

Children of Pleasure. By Larry
Barretto. Farrar & Rinehart.
These are the days of light
I spring fiction. Publishers evident
ly hold a belief that between the
months of April and September
the reading public is not capable
of digesting a book longer than
250 pages or heavier than Fanny
Hurst. New authors and women
writers predominate in filling the
demand, and turn out nicely word
ed stories revolving around certain
stock characters, most of them
young, sophisticated, and rich.
Larry Barretto is one of the
smoothest of these writers, and he
is well above the average in qual
ity of output. An old hand at this
spring fiction stuff, he provides us
with a very entertaining story of
what happened to wealthy young
couple who were struck between
the eyes by a bear market. Not
an original plot, but a worthy one.
Linda Gault had been born in
poverty. Her beauty won her Gra
ham, a man in good social stand
ing with the Four Hundred, but
very low financially. With Linda’s
help, through a string of flirta
tions with influential men, the
Gaults become wealthy, and Linda
achieves her heart's desires. Then
the market tumbles down about
their ears, and Linda deserts her
husband for Bermuda where she
falls in love with an Australian
sheep-herder who has roamed a lit
tle bit off his course.
Linda returns to New York to
arrange for a separation, and then
the plot takes a different turn,
hardly for the good, we’d say. Up
to this unconvincing and poorly
prepared-for ending, "Children of
Pleasure” is excellent stuff. Good
characterization and the fact that
it never fails to hold one’s inter
est makes the story well worth

Perhaps the outstanding literary
event of the year at the University

“Made-to-measure” service
for business
Whether the business is small or large—
the corner grocery or the refrigerator factory
— requirements for telephone service vary.
So, to meet special conditions, Bell System
men custom-fit the service to the subscriber.
They worked out a telephone conference
plan for a large manufacturer. Every Friday,
at specified times, each district manager calls
the home office, where telephone facilities are
so arranged that the chief sales executives are '
on the line simultaneously. Problems are dis
cussed, decisions given. In minutes, the ex-!
ecutives cover the country. This plan lowered
selling costs, raised efficiency, helped the user
to increase profits 31% in a year’s time.
By making the telephone more useful,
Bell System men contribute to the success
of many industries.
