Military Course
Opposed Rigidly
CHICAGO, Jan. 11—(AP)—The
Student Congress Against War
raised its voice in protest here re
cently against military training
for students at colleges and uni
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
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
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,

publications, dramatics, forensics,
and the senior, junior, and sopho
more class presidents. The gen

Clark Speaks at
Round Table Meet
A paper, “What shall we do
about war debts?” which explained
the origin of war debt settlements,
was given by It. C. 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
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
Evergreen State Legislature Must
Kind New Methods for liaising
School Funds
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
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.

Students Utilizing
Fee Paying Plan
Approximately 550 students took
advantage of the deferred payment
plan for registration fees for the
winter term, it was stated yester
day by E. 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
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
Further Stashes Must Be Made in
Fixed Expenses, Taxes, and
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

The University music program
