    Game Tonight
No Mere Setup
Fans Assured
Oregon State Best Team,
Aeeortling to Dope
Famous Oregon “Jinx” May Prove
Sufficient To Stop Orange
Past performances, positions in
conference standings, and all such
"dope” can be thrown into the dis
card as far as the outcome of to
night’s Webfoot-Beaver game is
concerned. Whenever Oregon
meets Oregon State in basketball,
the fans can be assured of a good
tight game with the margin of
victory resting on a very few
points. The teams tonight repre
sent both extremes in the per
centage column with Oregon State
holding the number one spot.
Although Oregon played a fair
ly hard game last Friday night,
they have rested almost a week
from conference activity and are
in good condition. The Beavers,
on the other hand, successfully
weathered a tough series with the
University of Washington last Fri
day and Saturday night which will
undoubtedly tell on the regulars
Boys Worked Hard
Bill Reinhart sent his gang
through a stiff practice session
yesterday afternoon. The second
team ran Orange plays through
the first string’s defense, and then
played Oregon State’s zone de
fense against Reinhart's specially
devised offense. The manner in
which the new system operated
against the "green wave” bodes ill
for the boys over in Corvallis.
Coach Amory “Slats” Gill is off
to win his first conference cham
pionship since taking over the
reins at Oregon State. He doesn’t
mean to let the Webfoots cheat
him out of it by winning part of
the four games, but neither did
Washington State last year, when
Oregon took three straight and
handed the title to Washington on
• a platter.
Huskies, Vandals Rest
Both Washington teams and
Idaho are resting until Friday,
when Washington meets Washing
ton State and the Vandals come
to Eugene for two games.

Caswell Will
Open Faculty
Talk Series
‘New Mechanics’ Slated
As Subject Tomorrow
Lectures Sponsored by Committee
On Free Intellectual
Dr. A. E. Caswell, professor of
physics at Oregon State, will in
troduce a series of faculty lectures,
one to be given each week for the
rest of this term, with his talk on
"The New Mechanics,” to be given
tomorrow evening at 8 in Villard
These lectures are sponsored by
the committee on free intellectual
activities, of which Dr. H. G.
Townsend is chairman, and are
aimed to give everyone interested
an opportunity to hear some of
his own faculty members speak
upon the subjects they know best.
Each professor scheduled for a lec
ture will discuss topics in his spe
cial field.
Appeal Is General
None of the lectures to follow
will be highly specialized, the com
mittee has declared, but will be
of interest to people other than
those working in the particular
field being considered.
Dr. Townsend has indicated,
however, that the lectures do pre
suppose a rather broad general
knowledge, and do not pretend to
be popularly appealing. All the
faculty and advanced students will
be interested; and some under
classmen, especially those major
ing in the field under discussion,
will appreciate the speeches.
Lectures Listed
The lectures to follow after Dr.
Caswell’s are: February 15, “Re
cent Developments in Understand
ing of Personality Structure,” by
Dr. H. H. Dixon; February 23,
“Formative Period of the Devel
opment of American Universities,
1867-1893," by Dr. H. D. Sheldon;
March 1, “Some Proposals for Eco
nomic Recovery,” by Prof. Donald
Erb; March 8, “Some Anthropo
logical Problems of the Pre-His
tory of the Pacific Northwest," by
Dr. L. S. Cressman.
A similar series of lectures was
given last year.

Forty-four Colonial theatre

of admissions.
“The most men to the most

chance as the big house with only
one dime to a man. Nobody will

Dean Allen Expresses Views
On Present Pacific Relations
Views recently expressed by
Warren D. Smith, head of the de
partment of geography, opposing
the policy of the United States in
placing the Philippine islands on
a long probationary period before
granting independence, were es
sentially agreed to by Eric W. Al
len, dean of the school of journal
ism, in an interview yesterday.
‘‘The international situation on
the Pacific is exceedingly danger
ous. Comparatively trifling events
might set off the fireworks,” Dean
Allen stated.
“The danger we are now facing
demonstrates how utterly erron
eous our foreign policy of the last
12 years has been. We should have
been handling this matter through
the League of Nations and not in
dependently. Our fundamental
mistake in not joining the league
is likely to involve us in serious
“Our Philippine policy, which is
partly responsible for our trouble,
is an unsatisfactory compromise.
It has the advantages neither of
strong imperialism nor of a de
termination to stay at home and
mind our own business. It is
probably too late for us to initiate
a strong policy in the Orient even
if it were desirable. In the present
circumstances the best thing to
do is to grant Philippine indepen
dence without the long probation
ary period of 13 years. Then if we
are to apply pressure on Japan we I
should do it through Geneva, but I
it is probably too late for that.

such a contingency.
Students’ Recommendation and
Committee Report
'T'HE RECOMMENDATION submitted to the Ways and Means
committee last week by the University's three petition bearers
—Dick Neuberger, Stephen Kahn, and Raymond Morse follows:
“In order to maintain the faculty of the various institutions
of higher learning on a plane commensurate with their experience
and ability, recommendation is hereby made that the Board of
Higher Education make no further reductions in the prevailing
salaries of members of the instructional staff, but effect the neces
sary economies by applying reductions to other existing functions,
viz: administrative staff, maintenance staff, physical equipment,
The complete report of the sub-committee of the Ways and
Means committee, on higher education, also follows:
Your sub-committee on the budget for the department of higher
education recommends that the sum of $508,918 be transferred from
the millage tax fund to the general fund of the state and that
$66>642 be transferred from the continuing appropriations to the
general fund, making a total saving to the general fund of $575,260.
These figures were arrived at in the following manner:
Salary reduction by applying Ways and Means- schedule
for the biennium .$905,804
Salary reductions already applied by Board of Higher Edu
cation .'. . 646,886
Net Additional salary cut .$258,918
Deduction to offset continuing appropriations restored by
this committee but which were transferred to millage
tax expense in the governor’s budget, less salary re
ductions ordered Dy the Ways and Means committee ... $250,000
Total deductions from millage lax .$508,918
Resulting as follows:
Millage lax as per budget .$3,965,000
Deduct .,.. 508,918
Net receipts from millage tax for higher
education .$3,456,082
Continuing appropriations for extension and experiment
stations .$308,898
To be deducted on account of Ways and Means salary sche
dule ...’. 66,342
Net amount of continuing appropriations .$242,556
To be deducted from millage tax .$508,918
To be deducted from continuing appropriations . 66,342
Total savings for general fund .$575,260
It is the opinion of your committee that this amount may be
deducted with discretion from the millage. tax of higher education
without crippling or materially reducing the scope of the activities
of the colleges and that nothing in this action justifies closing of
any one of the six stale institutions of higher learning.
That the salary reductions so necessary on the part of all per
sons on the public pay roll during the present crisis will be met by
the loyal force of instructors and workers in a spirit of patriotic
Your committee further asserts that this salary reduction is
not permanent and it is not to be construed as establishing a new
base, but merely a temporary emergency measure to apply for the
present biennium.
Your committee makes the following additional legislative
1. That the Board of Higher Education be given authority to
transfer state funds appropriated for experiment stations and re
distribute such funds where most needed among stations, in the
same manner as they now allocate funds between the institutions
of higher learning.
2. That the Board of Higher Education be given authority to
readjust salary schedules and the salary base as affecting the pay
rolls under th^ir jurisdiction, in the same manner that the State
Board of Control is to be given authority to readjust salaries in
other state departments.

Conklin Urges
Serious Choice
In Marriages
Wed for Lifetime, Not
Momentary Bliss
Psychologist Warns of Modern
Yonth’s Gross Ignorance
In Choosing Mate
Modern youth in its confused,
blundering state of mind often
digresses from the true path of
life when it comes to the fork in
the road where the two paths “mo
mentary happiness" and “lifetime
happiness" offer him his first
chance to decide important mat
ters for himself.
Such was the essence of the lec
ture delivered last night by Dr. E.
S. Conklin, in the discussion of the
psychological aspect of courtship
in the second speech in the love
and marriage lecture series.
In presenting his lecture, Dr.
Conklin used questions offered to
him by students in his classes.
These, he said, readily revealed
the ignorance of students in gen
eral on love and marriage, and
their pretext of self-confidence
covering the consciousness of
doubt of the future.
Society Is Conformation Rule
“Society insists that we are not
ready for marriage at the time of
puberty," said Dr. Conklin, “anu
we must respond to societal de
mands, no matter what our own
judgment on the matter."
Expanding this idea, the speak
er showed by illustration how the
passing generation believes in cer
tain standards and ideals because
through them it has achieved hap
piness. By much experience, gen
eral society has learned that hap
piness must be considered in the
aspect of lasting satisfaction rath

Van Winkle
SALEM, Feb. 6. (Special)—An
opinion handed down by Attorney
General I. H. Van Winkle today
held that before any state institu
tion of higher learning can be
closed, a legislative enactment
granting the board of higher edu
cation that poyver must be provid
The opinion w^s asked by E. C.
Sammons, chairmap of the finance
committee of the st^te board, who
made the request in the event that
legislative appropriations are cut
so deeply as to make it, necessary
to close one of the normal schools.
The impression was given that
if the ways and means commit
tee’s program of reducing the ap
propriations by more than $500,000
becomes effective, fixed expenses
for the institution would necessi
tate the closing of one of the nor
mal schools.
Van Winkle declared that he
had not yet been asked for an
opinion concerning the transfer
ring of some of the millage funds
to the general fund of the state.
It is said that legal opinion is di
vided on the constitutionality of
this proposal.

Guild Theatre Will Present
Fantasy; 'Berkeley Square9
In the course of its active years
Guild theatre has dealt in many
kinds of magic, none more effect
ive than fantasy. A glance back
over the hit pieces played in recent
years shows “The Ivory Door,"
“Gods of the Mountain,” “Snow
white,” and others akin to these in
spirit. The reason? A simple mat
ter—people, especially in these
days, patronize the drama for es
cape from the bitter reality of bit
ter living. Fantasy can nowhere
be presented so effectively as in
the theatre, and in John Balder
ston’s “Berkeley Square" beauty,
pathos and strangeness are
brought together in a near perfect
blend. This quietly sagacious Eng
lish play will headline the Guild
theatre winter program, sometime j
near the end of this month.
Leslie Howard, most charming
of the screen’s lovers, played Peter i
Standish of Berkeley Square for
a year on Broadway. Mr. Howard
is making a movie of the play now,
but before he translates it to the 1
screen this hob-nob tale of con
quered time and unconquerable
love will shed its two hours of ma
gic over the Guild theatre.
Peter Standish was lost in mem
ory. He lived in the 20th century,
but his heart was with his ances
tors. And when Author Balder
ston played his fantastic game
with time and space Peter Stand
ish, modern American, is allowed
to carry his 20th century heart
and head back to the England of
Dr. Johnson. The situation points
to a comedy of anachronisms, but
we find its amusing possibilities

Education Cut
Foes Forming
In Opposition
Salary Slash Is Thought
Open Issue Slill
Many Newspapers Align Support
To Aid State Institutions
Of Higher Learning
STATE HOUSE, Salem, Ore.,
Feb. 6—(Special)—Out of a visit
here late last week by three Uni
versity of Oregon students has
grown a pronounced opposition to
the recent report of the Ways and
Means committee which calls for
a 7 to 45 per cent reduction in the
salaries of faculty members of the
state institutions of higher educa
The original budget, as prepared
by Director Henry M. Hanzen, .
called for cuts of from 5 to 25
per cent. The more drastic cuts
were advocated by the sub-com
mittee on higher education.
On Thursday night of last
week three students from the Uni
versity of Oregon—Richard L.
Neuberger, Stephen B. Kahn, and
Raymond J. Morse — arrived here
bearing petitions from their fellow
students protesting against all
faculty cuts in general and those
levied on faculty members in par
ticular. Neuberger obtained per
mission to address the Ways and
Means committee and pleaded
with the members not to reduce
the faculties further, saying
greater cuts would drive the out
standing men away from Oregon.
The only member of the com
mittee to reply to Neuberger's re
marks was Senator W. F. Wood
ward of Multnomah county. He
said the faculty should be patri
otic and loyal enough to stand the
reductions, and said that the state
didn't have to be afraid of men
going east when there were such
outstanding youths as the trio of
University lads at the meeting
coming up from this state.
At present a number of promi
nent legislators have taken up the
cry against further reduction of
education and professors’ salaries
and it seems likely that the issue
will become one of the dominant
matters before the legislature.
The complete and final report of
the Ways and Means committee
is expected Thursday night.
PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 6.—
(Special)—Despite the cut of
$508,918 recently levied by the
ways and means committee of the
Oregon legislature, leading citi
zens of the state and the fourth
estate of the commonwealth do not
believe the matter is yet a closed
issue. There are many who think
higher education has been reduced
unjustly, and are of the opinion
that the system already has ab
sorbed all the cuts it can without
being drastically crippled and its
efficiency virtually obliterated.
Both of Portland’s leading news
papers—the Morning Oregonian
and the Oregon Journal—have pro
tested bitterly at the cuts levied
on education. Both have said the
reductions will do material dam
age. In the Oregon Voter, C. C.
Chapman said editorially that
higher education had been blasted
because it was politically expedi
ent to do so.
Sammons Education Friend
One of the staunchest cham
pions of education in the state is
