Speakers denounced mainten ance of reserve officers’ training corps on campuses, and the resolu tions committee presented the 650 delegates at the congress with an opportunity to vote for abolition of them. Military training is compulsory for colleges receiving government grants, the resolution pointed out, so another resolution proposing repeal of the Morrell land grant act by congress was formulated.

Student Body Government at U. of California Is Described By JULIAN PRESCOTT Student government at the Uni versity of California is faced by problems not encountered at the much smaller and non-metropoli tan campus at Stanford. Because of this, such large control of stu dent discipline as has been dele gated to the Stanford student body has been denied the Cali fornia group. Otherwise, the functions of the A. S. U. C. are virtually the same. It has charge cf practically all extra-curricular activities. Membership in the association is open to faculty members as well as students. This gives the profes sors advantage of student rates for athletic events and other acti vities. It also makes possible the forming of a bond between stu I dents and faculty that might ; otherwise be impossible on a campus so large, . . . , Officers o fthe association are a president, a vice-president, a sec retary, a senior men’s and a senior women’s representative. A provi sion not encountered on most cam puses is that the vice-president shall be a senior woman. Legislative and administrative functions have been invested in an executive committee composed of th£ president, vice-president, and secretary of the association, senior man, senior woman, an alumnus of the university ap pointed by the alumni association, a member of the academic senate appointed by the president of the university, one member of each of the following activity councils, men’s athletics, women's athletics, publications, dramatics, forensics, and the senior, junior, and sopho more class presidents.

W. S. Emma Bell Stadden was the general chairman of the affair. “The Burning Cauldron,” the freshman skit was awarded the cup for being the most individual and clever stunt of the evening. Eleanor Norblad was in charge. The idea was a take-off on promi nent students on the campus at the day of judgment. The sophomore stunt, “The Big Broadcast," headed by Beverly Price, received honorable mention. The junior feature, directed by I Phoebe Greenman was entitled, “A I College Sleeping Porch."

Clark, head of the history department, last night at the monthly meeting of the Hound Table, composed of Univer sity and business men, at the Os burn hotel. Dr. Clark showed, how the Unit ed States analyzed its settlements with foreign countries between 1924 and 1930. The total debt prin cipal amounts to 11,000,000,000, over 62 years; 22,000,000,000 are to be collected by 1987. Up to the end of 1931, approximately $2,600, 000,000 had been collected on debt installments. The (Connection between debt payments and German reparations was also pointed out. Debts can not be collected because the Unit ed States is unwilling to accept goods and services in payment Unless the tariff policy is altered, l collection of debts is impossible Previous to the war, the Unitec States was a debtor nation; now it is a creditor nation. In order tc receive interest on private loan; citizens have made abroad, an un favorable balance of trade woult have to be accepted. Big Problems | Will Be Faced By Washington Big Deficit Looms; News From Phelan Awaited COACH IS UNSIGNED Evergreen State Legislature Must Kind New Methods for liaising School Funds UNIVERSITY OE WASHING TON, Seattle, .Ian. 11 (Special l Rigid economies in the scholastic affairs of the University of Wash ington are sharing the spotlight now with the football coaching situation. Thousands .of sports followers here are wondering if James M. (Irish Jimmy) Phelan will sign a contract to continue his services for another three years. At present, Mr. Phelan is in the East, and it is feared he may go to the University of Chi cago to replace the venerable A. A. Stagg, retired. Athletic conditions are in some what of a muddle here and Mr. Phelan has been prone to criticize the interference of Washington alumni on numerous occasions. After Jimmy lost to Oregon, 13 to 0, in 1931, the alumni started to criticize Jimmy, but a brilliant record this fall reversed the tables again. It is feared that Jimmy, who came here from the Big Ten, as Did Doc Spears at Oregon, may follow Doc's foot steps eastward. The latter now is at Wisconsin. Big Deficit Faced Mr. Phelan's reluctance to af fix his signature to a contract was due to the uncertainty of receiv ing his pay. The season just closed showed a deficit of $34,000 in the university’s athletic fund. The receipts amounted approxi mately to $73,000, while the ath letic program calls for an outlay of $167,000.'-Interest and sinking fund to care for $403,000 in bonds issued to pay for the university’s athletic pavilion account for a sub stantial part of the budget. When the pavilion bonds were issued five years ago, the sinking fund allowance was based upon the income of 1927. It is every where agreed in view of the dimin ished revenues of 1932, that the bond payments were excessive. In order to save the Associated Stu dents of the University of Wash ington from defaulting, it will be necessary to obtain a moratorium or to rewrite the bond contract. Education Also Short The unhappy prospect of a shortage in funds for education is a matter for the legislature to im prove, while the problem of set tling the athletic program at the university is immediate and ur gent. Without athletics the insti tution would languish and with out a capable coach and a winning football team, the student body must go deeper into the hole. ITie university is in no position to take over the obligations of the student body and there is a real necessity for continuing the present athletic policy. There is a growing conviction that the initiative measure adopted at the November election limiting the tax on real estate to 40 mills will have a depressing effect on education. It is estimated that the revenues for the common schools will be reduced approximately $8,000,000. In 1931, the state levied for the university, the state college and the three normal schools $3,523,316. 1 j Recovering ' Fear was felt yesterday that William J.

PHI BETA STARTS REHEARSALS FOR CINDERELLA PLAY Drama To Be Presented Saturday At McMorran-Washbume Auditorium Members of Phi Beta, women’s national professional fraternity of music and drama, are meeting for rehearsals for their presentation of "Cinderella,” as dramatized by Mrs. Kenneth Shumaker.

P. Lyon, cashier. This is almost identically the same number that was accommo dated the fall term, when the plan was first put into use. The registration fees are paid in three installments. The first is paid the day of registration and is $20 of the total $38. By the time the second installment is due, this term on February 4, $30 must have been paid. The final installment, by which time all of the fee must be settled, comes later in the term. February 4 also marks the last day on which out-of-state fees can be paid at the cashier's office. Men Keep OuC Order Delays Beginning of Co-ed Capers Getting a man in, not keeping i the male sex out, proved the hard est job of the senior cops at the j Coed Capers last night. All the orchestra but the piano player came early, but the party couldn't start till he got there. When a search was instituted, he was found vainly arguing with Douglas Perkins, special watchman, who simply would not be convinced | that he was necessary to the "wo ; men only” affair. Of course, the senior cops had a little exercise in their rightful sphere. Two Theta Chi freshmen | attempted to crash the gate in costume. The girls didn't blame I them, because it was an initiation stunt. It seems that one of them had recited the Greek alphabet in ithree seconds and the other had won the pie-eating contest, and enforced permission to attend the Coed Capers was their “reward.” Their stay was short. Participants in the winning ‘ freshman stunt also had their lit tie worries though they proved needless. Back-stage, “Cecil Espy" directed the “Imp,” “If I go (a wave of the hand) drag me out. I've forgotten my lines.” Or per haps it was “Parks Hitchcock." Dick Neuberger, Bob Hall, Nancy Suomcla, Professor Howe, Louise Webber, and Carol Hurlburt were also among those consigned by His Satanic Majesty to his hottest flames. Everybody but the oysters of Alice in Wonderland, a pair out fitted for bathing a la 1900, Frank enstein’s monster, representatives of six University schools, and many other original, and striking cos tumes wound in and out before the dignified judges. And the judges were dignified; Mrs. Mac duff's cotton mustache was dis pensed with immediafely, but sev eral of the cup-and-gowned judges maneuvered theirs so competently that even popcorn balls and ice cream bars did not dislodge them Cost Reduction In House Bills Will Be Sought Fraternity and Sorority Managers Meet DORM BASIS IS AIM Further Stashes Must Be Made in Fixed Expenses, Taxes, and utilities Concerted and determined action on (he part of all University of Oregon house-managers to devise means of bringing about lower ex penses to members of fraternity groups on the campus was launch ed yesterday afternoon at a meet ing of the House Managers’ asso ciation in Johnson hall. The house managers were unani mous in declaring that fraternity and sorority house bills will have to be greatly reduced in order that Greek - letter organizations may operate on a competitive basis with the dormitories and offer monthly housebills comparable to the lower dormitory rates. Committees Named Three committees were appoint ed by Ralph Walstrom, president of the organization, to investigate every possible means of reducing expenses. Names of the workers were not given out. Walstrom pointed out that minor cost items have already been cut to the bone and that any further reduction will have to be in the major fields, such as fixed ex penses, utilities, and property taxes. Groups were organized to secure accurate and complete data on all these items and to bring before the association such recom mendations as may be acted upon immediately by the fraternities as a unit. Information Sought Complete information will like wise he secured upon the varying indebtedness of fraternities, the expense records of each house, the i average housebills paid by frater nity and sorority members, and other material which has here tofore been jealously guarded by the individual organizations. The fraternities represented assured Walstrom of complete cooperation in releasing this information. Fear that the state board of higher education will again pro pose a deferred pledging system in order to increase greatly re ‘ duced dormitory revenues is another factor in motivating the fraternities to immediate action, Walstrom said. The opinion was expressed by several of the house managers that if freshmen were prohibited from pledging during their entire first year, it wrou)d mean the extinction of fraternities on the Oregon campus. The meeting was attended by Virgil D. Earl, dean of men, and Bob Hall, student body president. Music Program To Be Presented Over KOAC The University music program over KOAC tonight presents Edith Grim, pianist, Victor Bryant, ten or, and Teresa Kelly, accompanist.
