STATE HOUSE, Salem, Ore.,
Feb. 3.—- ( Special)—Enthusiastic
commendation of the students of
the University of Oregon for their
initiative in bringing their views
to the attention of the legislature
was voiced by a half score of
prominent state officials this af
ternoon. Senators and representa
tives joined in expressing to Dick
p Neuberger, chairman of the stu
dent delegation, admiration for the
interest manifested by the Univer
sity in educational legislation.
The chief activities of the group
of students, which included Dick
Neuberger, Raymond (Butch)
Morse, and Stephen Kahn consist
ed of focussing the attention of
legislative officials on the pre
vailing student opinion opposing
further reduction in faculty salar
ies. Late this afternoon a formal
recommendation was submitted by
the trio to Representative L. F.
Allen, chairman of the joint ways
and means committee, which read
as follows:
"In order to maintain the fac
ulty of the several institutions of
higher learning on a plane com
mensurate with their experience
and ability and to provide suitable
remunerative recognition, recom
mendation is hereby, made that
the board of higher education
make no further reductions in the
prevailing salaries of the instruc
tional staff, but effect the neces
sary economies by applying re
ductions to other existing func
tions, viz: administrative staff,
maintenance staff, physical plant,
etc., etc.”
Meier Expresses Appreciation
At a conference with Governor
Meier this morning, the chief ex
ecutive of the state expressed his
appreciation of the students’ in
terest in their own problems and
commended their loyalty to the
faculty body. He outlined the fi
nancial problems confronting the
state and advanced the hope that
no function of the state system of
higher education would be perma
nently impaired.

Future Lawyers
Shown Necessity
Of Wide Learning
Broad study in pre-law subjects
and liberal knowledge of fields of
endeavor other than law were
stressed as advantages to
the student planning to enter the
legal profession by Earl Immel,
prominent Eugene attorney and
ex-president of the Oregon State
Bar association, who spoke recent
ly before approximately 100 un
derclass students in pre-law work
here recently.
“In order to be successful as a
lawyer a man must be familiar
with the trades of all men with
whom he does business,” Mr. Im
mel said. “The doctor, on the oth
er hand, is sufficiently well
equipped if he knows his own bus
iness well.”
In stating these views, Immel
substantiated the frequently stat
ed policy of the law school which
emphasizes the necessity of a wide
pre-iegal training. He also dealt
with the fact that salesmanship is
an essential requirement for law
just as much as it is in any other

Master’s Degree Desired
A. C. Stambrough, who is now
on the faculty of Monmouth nor
mal school, filed his abstract and
thesis for his master's degree with
the University of Oregon graduate
school office, Clara L. Fitch, school
secretary, said yesterday. His
subject is history of Pacific col
Possibilities of Pacific Strife
Shown by Warren D. Smith
The stage is set for a war in the
Pacific which may assume world
wide dimensions, is the opinion of
Dr. Warren D. Smith, head of the
geography department. Dr. Smith
said that he did not wish to pre
dict such a war, but the situation
was favorable for it.
Two factors tending toward
war were pointed out by Dr.
Smith in an interview yesterday.
One was the geographic situation
and the other the present trend
of those in control of Japan.
The islands and group of islands
under Japan’s control form a semi
circle with the Philippine islands
a center, Dr. Smith said. This
semi-circle includes the islands of
Formosa, Pelew, Yap, and others.
Dr. Smith brought out the close-1
ness of these islands to the Philip
pines by saying he had seen For
mosa from the northern most is
land in the Philippines. Another
Japanese possession, the Marshall
islands, is comparatively close to
the Hawaiian islands.
Dr. Smith said he hoped that a
war would not occur, but that the
nations may blunder into it. Al
though the militaristic factions
are now in control in Japan, there
are a great many people there who
deplore the situation, he said. Hope
that this more conservative ele
ment would assume power, thus
eliminating the possibility of an
economic boycott on Japan by the
United States and Great Britain,
was expressed by Dr. Smith. This

Plan Proposed
For Change Of
Election Time
ASUO and Class Voting
Would Be Same Day
Date Would Be Advanced From
First Thursday in May to
Second One in April
A proposal to advance the date
of student body elections from the
first Thursday in May to the sec
ond Thursday in April was made
last night by officials of the A. S.
U. O. Nominations would be ad
vanced to the first Thursday in
A further revision of the cam
pus elections was suggested when
Bob Hall, student body president,
proposed that all class elections be
held simultaneously with general
3tudent body elections. This would
appreciably limit the campaign pe
riods and the resultant disruption
of classes and study schedules.
If the students accept the new
proposal, the elections will take
place about three weeks after
spring-term registration.
Present Nomination In Late April
At the present time, the asso
ciated student constitution pro
vides in Section 2, clause 1, that
nominations shall be from the
floor at a general A. S. U. O.
meeting the last Thursday in
April. Elections shall be held on
the seventh day following nomina
tion, or the first Thursday in May.
It is also planned to conduct a
group of meetings which all new
ly elected officers will be required
to attend in order that they may
become familiar with the student
body government, its functions
and duties. During these meetings
they will have an opportunity to
learn how the officers cooperate
with the administration, they will
be shown what powers the admin
istration has over the associated
students, the importance of finan
cial structure, and all other duties
they will be required to perform
during their term in office. Much
of the explanation would be made
by the retiring president.
. Hall Favorable
Hall stated that, if the plan
should go through, every newly
elected officer will positively have
to attend the spring term meet
ings ancj show an interest as well,
before he will be permitted to take
the oath to perform his duties
during his term of office. The
aim is to give the new officers a
chance to get an inside view of
student affairs.
In the opinion of Hall, the new
system would be a great improve
ment over the plan used at the
present time, and seems to be the
only plan of its kind that has been
attempted on other college sh ss
attempted on the Pacific coast. He
also stated that the proposed plan j
would eliminat some of the dis-'
turbance in campus politics.
McKelligon Makes Statement
A statement made fcy A1 McKel
ligon, chairman of the local com
mittee of the National Student
Federation of America, declared
that the proposed system would
cut out petty politics on the cam
pus and would allow the students
to catch up on their studies.
McKelligon stated that the pro
jected change would probably be
submitted to a student body vote
some time near the end of the

Depression Will
Feature on New
Shelf at Library
Move Is Made To Meet Demands
For Books on Current
Economic Problems
Student interest in the depres
sion and books conccrning .it is so
great that the old library is today
opening a new shelf to meet the
demand. This “depression shelf”
will contain all the late books—
and the number is legion—which
deal with this paramount econ
omic problem of today, according
to Miss Bernice Rice, superinten
dent of the circulation department.
The preponderance of the circu
lation of these depression books
over all other types is shown in a
comparison of the grand total for
the seven-day shelf for this school
year which is approximately 628
which leaves the favored books a
one-third rating against the com
bined fields of fiction, poetry, phil
osophy, travel, biography, and the
many by-lines of these types.
The latest of the volumes which
will appear on the shelf are vol
umes I and II on “Recent Social
Trends in the United States,”
which is a report of the Research
Committee on Social Trends ap
pointed by President Hoover. The
president wrote the foreword for
the series, in which it is pointed
out that since the task assigned
was to inquire into changing
trends, the emphaSis is on ele
ments of instability rather than
stability in our social structure.
These books, which were just pub
lished in January, 1933, were pur
chased from the income of funds
contributed to the University by
the late Henry Villard of New
York City.

Oregon Turns
On Multnomah
For 47-29 Win
Webfooters Amass Big
Margin at Quarter
Bill Reinhart Uses Reserves for
Greater Part of Game;
No Tilt With Oilers
PORTLAND, Feb. 3—(Special
to Oregon Daily Emerald)—Ore
gon finally broke into the win
column tonight at the expense of
the Multnomah Athletic club five.
The game, featured by rough play
ing, ended 47 to 29 in favor of the
University team.
Bill Reinhart used reserves the
greater part of the game, after his
regulars had run up a 20-4 lead in
the first quarter. The score at
half time was 28 to 17.
Keenan Peps Up
In the second half Billy Keenan,
former Oregon star, put pep into
the club quintet. Playing his old
ballhawking game, he potted five
field goals before he could be
stopped. Reinhart sent in an en
tire new team in the final quarter,
and the game got rough as the
clubbers tried to even the score.
"Spook’’ Robertson stood out
for the Webfoots, garnering 11
points and showing more fire than
he has all season. "Cap" Roberts
took few shots, most of those be
ing on set-up plays. Stevens,
Olinger, and Watts, the other
starters for the Ducks, played
bang-up ball.
Webfoots Leave for Home
For the club, Keenan, with 11,
and King Bailey, with 9 markers,
were outstanding. The latter is a
former Oregon State star.
The Webfoots left for Eugene
immediately following the game.
The game to be played with the
Union Oil five was not scheduled
as announced.

Women Students Lead Men
As Patrons of Book Balcony
Aha—the worm, pardon, the
tide has turned! The co-eds of the
University have suddenly become
book minded. Page the psycholo
gy department!
Up to this term it has been a
tradition at the Co-op book bal
cony that the men patrons predom
inated by a ratio of three to one;
but this term, following the exam
ple of the democratic turn-over
the "fair sex" has taken the book
balcony by storm: the ratio is now
three to one favoring the co-eds.
The books read by women are
of a diverse nature; fiction and
romance, however, head the list.
But they also read the so called
“deep stuff,” such as the "ABC of
Technocracy, and a “A New Deal."
The men on the campus read
more non-fiction, adventure, trav
el, and humor books, declared Miss
Nancy Roberts, manager of the
book shop. They also seem to have
in aversion for women authors and
read books more readily if they
are written by masculine writers.
There are exceptions, of course,
and some of the future lawyers,
educators, captains of industry,
bond and Fuller brush salesmen
devour wofks of Edna Ferber.
Willa Cather, Vicki Baum, Edna
St. Vincent Millay, and Fannie
Both co-eds and men students,
however, make few purchases of
books this year, according to Miss
