Alexander G. Brown, Secretary

To Fill Office
Of Secretary
(Continued from Page One)
Alumni association at this time,”
Mr. Brown stated in making
' known his resignation. “I have
enjoyed the finest of cooperation
from alumni and residents of Eu
gene and from members of the
faculty of the University.
Credit Given Alumni
"A great deal of credit for the
six to one defeat of the Znrn-Mac
pherson till goes to the alumni,”
Mr. Brown said, "for in all parts
of the state hundreds of negative
votes can be traced back to the
quiet and persistent work done
among the individuals of that
community by the alumni. Too
much credit cannot be given the
“As alumni secretary it lias been
my pleasure to work closely with
the group which handled Eugene's
participation in the anti-Zorn-Mac
pherson campaign. This group,
headed by Judge Lawrence T.
Harris, and including William A.
Tugman, Lynn S. McCready, Jo
seph H. Kolce, J. H. McArthur,
and Dr. A. F. Sether conducted a
most remarkable campaign. Par
ticular credit should be given
Judge Harris for his leadership
and untiring devotion to the Uni
versity’s cause.
Campaign Explained
"As for the alumni association,
o u r campaign . was conducted
strictly upon the merits of the
University and at no time des
cended to personalities nor did the
campaign at any time become a
fight between the alumni of the
state college and the alumni of the
University. In behalf of the Uni
versity alumni I want to thank
the many alumni of the state col
lege who opposed the Zorn-Mac
pherson bill and lent their influ
ence to its defeat at the polls.
“My tenure of office has been
financed entirely by funds other
than those of the state or the
alumni association, and the finan
cial affairs of the association de
mands* curtailment which makes
my retirement necessary.”
Mr. Brown is a graduate of the
University with the class of 1922.
He was graduated from the North
western College of Law in 1931
and admitted to practice by the
supreme court upon his examina
tion in 1930.
Prior to taking over the alumni
office Mr. Brown was a member
Of the Oregonian staff for eight
years. He plans a two-weeks va
cation after leaving the office
here before resuming newspaper
work in Portland January 1.

Hail and Farewell
(An Editorial)
ITU THIS issue of the Alumni Emerald I extend my 1 ;^;
official greeting to the alumni and it is "hail ami fit;
lAvell." When 1 took over the office of secretary on May 1, it
was with Hi - expressed understanding that in endeavoring to
! build tip the alumni association 1 would not go about the slat >
! with my hat in my hand, nor would 1,endeavor to build our
organization through an attack upon any other alumni group
Shortly al’to r taking of ice the picture was radically change '
i with the appearance of ih Zorn-Maepherson petitions. Sturt
ing late in M ty and continuing up to the date of election,
November S. 1 had but one objective before me. the defeat of
this measure. That it was defeated by a six-to-onc vote in. sOtti
indication of the work done l>v the alumni.
The alumni association as such no longer receives assjstai.
j from the state, and it becomes necessary for the alumni them
selves to finance most of the association's activity. This can
j not be done unless there is at least a 100 per cent increase i •
association membership.
It has been my desire to put the association on its feet and
with this end in view I have endeavored to collect the various
accounts receivable and pay the bills which 1 inherited. Pro
gress has been made in belli departments and the only obliga
tion owed by the association is $652.24 due on the $2,240.52
printing bill for last yeai s Old Oregon, all of which was due
and owing when 1 took office.
Membership in the alumni association has remained prac
tically stationary, but this return in the face of necessary ex
penses and unpaid accounts owed by the office does not afford
| sufficient revenue to continue the organization as it has been
conducted during the past seven months. Drastic economies
I have been practiced, personnel reduced and every effort made
j to operate during a very active season at a minimum of expense.
Not one cent of my salary or expenses, nor’the salary and
j expenses of Robert K. Allen and Arthur I’otwin, who head
quartered at the alumni office during the late campaign, has
b um paid by the alumni association or the state. This arrange
ment, however, no longer exists, and the secretary's salary,
which lias been set at a minimum figure, must in the future
come from the association's funds.
Given proper support by the alumni, the office can continue
and be even with the board by duly 1. Every effort should be
made to bring this a bold, so that returns at the first of the
nex< fiscal year will not be used to pay this year’s obligations.
Our University needs the alumni association now as it never
r.eeded it before and my parting plea is that the organization he
given greater support by the great body of alumni.
I would be remiss if I did not again pay tribute to the
alumni residing within the state for their assistance in defeating
the Zorn-Maepherson bill. In my many trips about the state !
found the alumni ready and willing to do a tremendous amount
of work. The personal contact with the voters by fhe alumni
was one of the paramount factors in the defeat of the measure.
There are countless individuals in various parts of Oregon
to whom 1 feel indebted for their kindness and assistance when
j 1 visited their communities.
Members of the faculty have been most kind and helpful
and to them 1 take this opportunity to voice my appreciation.
To alumni residents of Eugene and Lane county and to all
residents of this community 1 express mv heartfelt thanks foi
the assistance to me. and in behalf of the. alumni association I
again express the general thanks of all sons and daughters ol
Oregon for their unselfish support of the University during the
Irving six-months period through which we have Come.
To Robert K. Allen, my successor as alumni secretary. 1 ex
tend congratulations. From months of association with him I
commend him to the alumni body as a hard worker, resource
ful and honest. He takes over the office at a critical time in its
history and in the history of the University, lie must look to
the alumni for his strength and the alumni must respond.
Hail and farewell.
