Lincoln was shot in Washington April 14, 1865, Garfield in the same city July 2, 1881, and McKinley in Buffalo September 6, 1901. President
Andrew Jackson escaped January 29, 1835, when the assassin missed fire. An ex-president, the late Theodore Roosevelt, was shot In Mil

Sheldon To Give
Faculty Lecture
Tomorrow Night
Talk Is Third of Series, Deals
With Formative Period of
i American Universities
Dr. H. D. Sheldon’s lecture on
the formative period of the devel
opment of American universities,
the third of a series of faculty lec
tures, which was originally sche
duled for Thursday, will be held in
stead tomorrow night, at 8 o’clock
in Villard hall.
The lecture will deal with new
discoveries in the field and while
advanced enough to interest fac
ulty and graduate students, yet
will be easy for the averagely
well-educated, student to under
stand. Admission is free.
This lecture is one of a series
promoted by the committee on
free intellectual activities, of
which Dr. H. G. Townsend is
chairman. The lectures are in
tended to give the University fac
ulty an opportunity to speak on
the subjects about which they are
best informed, and to give students
an idea about the different fields
of work in the University. One
lecture will be given each week
during the rest of the term.
The two lectures already held
were “The New Mechanics,” by
Dr. A. E. Caswell, and “Recent
Developments in the Understand
ing of Personality Structure,” by
Dr. H. H. Dixon. Those to follow
after Dr. Sheldon’s are: “Some
Proposals for Economic Recov
ery,” by Donald Erb, March 1;
and “Some Anthropological Prob
lems of the Pre-History of the
Northwest,” by Dr. L. S. Cress
man, March 8.
Manchukuo High Officials j
Not Condemnatory to U.S. \
While the League of Nations'
committee of 19 was considering
adherence to the recommendations
of the Lytton report regarding the
Japanese sponsored independent
government of Manchukuo, high
officials of the buffer state have
not been outspoken in their con
demnation of “outside interven
tion” in the Manchurian affair.
Letters recently received by Dr.
Harold J. Noble of the history de
partment, relative to Manchuria,
state that in Manchukuo they
“are facing realities” and that the
attempts of the league at arbitra
tion "has served to aggravate bit
terness between Oriental countries
which should be friendly by nature
and environment.”
A personal letter to Professor
Noble, dated January 17, from Mr.
Tarao Kawasaki of the foreign of
fice of Manchukuo, Hsinking
V (Changchung), says in part:
“Theorists may weave all sorts of
fancy ideas and dogmatists may ’
form their pet conclusions regard
ing the events in Manchuria, but
here in this new state we are fac
ing realities.
“With courage and determina
tion all the officials of Manchu
kuo, high and low, are forging
ahead for the consolidation of their
state and for the promotion of
cordial relations with foreign coun
tries ... I have been a witness to
all of these epoch-making develop
ments, and have followed them
with the keenest interest."
Mr. Kawasaki is a Japanese,
was educated in the United States,
and is married to an American.
He has taken service under the
Manchukuo government together
with several Japanese advisers.
Professor Noble became acquaint
ed with him during his visit to
Manchuria last summer.

Living for $2.25 a Week
-TrrUXrtTfTAI— =J
THIS is the llth hour for a multitude of Oregon students. They
face the necessity of withdrawing from the University because of
financial exigencies. It costs approximately $40 a month to live in a
fraternity or sorority. Off the campus the average bill is about $20.
The dormitories charge around $25. This price range is varied, but
business conditions have put it out of reach of numerous worthwhile
Recently the personnel division announced that all students resid
ing off the campus probably would be compelled to move into the
dormitories next semester. Only those with adequate reasons to the
contrary would be excepted.
Certainly that sort of action is not what should be forthcoming
from the administration at this time. The proper procedure for those
in authority lies in an opposite direction.
They should set aside Friendly hall for men, and either Hendricks
or Susan Campbell hall for women. There they should establish co
operative living organizations, such as have been introduced with en
couraging success at Washington State, Indiana, Wisconsin, and
numerous other representative colleges.
Cooking equipment should be installed, responsible upper-classmen
and graduate students should be placed in charge, and the entire plan
should be operated by the residents themselves, the students doing
even the cooking and other necessary tasks.
Food for the two units could be purchased at wholesale prices.
The students should be charged only cost for everything, there being
no profit involved anywhere along the line. The administration should
realize the emergency that confronts the student body and charge
only for the maintainance at the two buildings used.
The plan has tremendous possibilities. At other colleges, under
similar systems, students are living for as cheaply as $2.25 a week.
The administration should waste no time in investigating the sugges
tion. Those in charge can perform a valuable service to a multitude
of students by inaugurating this plan by the start of next semester.
In the last analysis, this is an educational institution. If more
students, many of them brilliant scholars, can be helped to remain
enrolled here by the inception of the Emerald’s plan, profit and loss
should be forgotten for the time being.

work. He will also point out the
attractiveness of international law

Lives of Several
Presidents Have
Been Attempted
The lives of two famous Roose
velts, Theodore Roqsevelt, ex-pres
ident, and Franklin D. Roosevelt,
president-elect, evidently possess
the good will of fortune. Both
their lives have been attempted by
assassins and both have narrowly
escaped the fate of three former
Franklin Roosevelt’s words,
“Tell them I’m all right,” quelled
the fears of a large crowd assem
bled in Bay Park, Miami, Florida,
where Joe Zangara, anarchist, at
tempted the life of the president
elect and wounded five bystanders,
one of whom was Mayor Anton
Cermak, oT Chicago.
It is believed that Franklin
Roosevelt is the only president
elect whose life has ever been en
dangered by assassins. His rela
tive, the former Theodore Roose
velt, was shot after he had left
the presidency, in the streets of
Milwaukee, Oct. 14, 1912. Although
blood was seeping through his
clothing from a wound in his chest
as he ascended the stairs to the
stage, Theodore Roosevelt delivered
his address before 25,000 people
to what is considered the most
enthusiastic ovation a man has
ever received in the United States.
Roosevelt recovered.
Andrew Jackson, while presi
dent, was attacked by a painter
in his own home on January 29,
1835, but was not injured.
President William McKinley was
treacherously shot by a gun hid
den in the wrapped hand of Leon
Czolgosz on Sept. 6, 1901 at the
Pan-American exposition in Buffa
lo, N. Y.
James Garfield, lived for two
months after the bullet of Chas.
Jules Guiteau, pierced his side. He
was shot July 2, 1881.
Abraham Lincoln was fatally
wounded by John Wilkes Booth in
the Ford theatre in Washington,
after he had been cheered by an
audience elated with the recent
victory of union arms. He died
several hours l^ter.
Doan Jewel To Speak
At Roseburg Meeting
Dean J. R. Jewell of the school
of education will speak tonight at
the annual education meeting of
Roseburg teachers, P.-T. A., and
townspeople interested in educa
tional problems.
The subject will be, “The Ideal
Teacher.” The idea he will stress
is that a person must have cer
tain pre-requisites before he can
become a teacher at ail, but to
rise above the ordinary the in
structor must possess other quali
ties. The dean will return to the
University tomorrow.

Twenty-one Oregon students are

the Oregon-Oregon State basket
ball game Saturday night. Re
ports and complaints received at
the Emerald office yesterday
showed that students were depriv
ed of their student body cards
when they loaned them to others
to gain admission to the game.
Each year many students have
their cards revoked, but the games
with the Beavers reaped the heavi
est toll of offenders. Last year
one of the games found 18 stu
dents who were not the legal own
ers of the tickets, stated Russell
Dickson, doorman at McArthur
court. Hugh Rosson, graduate
manager, said that the majority of
tickets collected Saturday were
from Oregon State students who
received them from University
Not To Be Returned
Rosson stated that all those stu
dents who lost their cards have
forfeited all privileges which the
student body tickets allowed them.
The cards will neither be returned
for the remainder of the term nor
cannot be purchased until spring

Final Lecture of

Marital State Called ‘Partnership
In the Art of Living’
By Psychologist
“Marriage must be looked upon
as a partnership in the art of liv

Dr. Edmond S. Conklin last night
in the final lecture of the love and

been given on the campus every
Monday night for the past month.
The speech last night dealt with
the psychological aspects of mar
Too often a man or woman looks
upon coming nuptials as the cli
max to one’s life. The happiness
and joys of such a union are usu
ally the only factors considered;
the difficulties and trials, over
looked until they appear. A
couple, said Dr. Conklin, should
realize that marriage involves the
making of a living, and all the
problems connected with such
vocations, the rearing of children,
the establishment of one’s self in
a community, and the living of a
life which will eventually close
without any feeling of regret or
remorse. In marriage, such a
worthwhile life must be entered

Reduction In
Student Living
Offered In Plan
Groups of Cooperatives
Held Best Scheme
Advocates Suggest Using Older
Campus Halls for Proposed
Economic Experiment
Cooperative living in dormitor
ies may be the answer to the prob
lem of how many students will fi
nance the coming term in the Uni
versity. The idea is new to Ore
gon, but has been tried out with
encouraging success on mid-west
ern campuses.
The plan, in its Oregon adop
tion would be to turn over Friend
ly and either Susan Campbell or
Hendricks halls to selected groups
of students that they might live
there at greatly reduced rent and
on a cooperative board plan with
menus planned with the special
idea of keeping cost at a minimum.
Supervision of the dormitories
would, of course, remain with the
University, but the costs of admin
istration would be eliminated.
Costs Would Go Down
Without the costs of chaperons,
janitors, sponsors and such other
persons as are on the payroll, the
charges for rent could be mate
rially reduced. By having all work
in the kitchen done by members of
the cooperative, only the cost of
fuel and provisions would be in
curred. These two savings would

At the University of Indiana
menus calling for the expenditure
of only $1.72 a week have been
prepared. The meals, three of
them each day, were planned with
the aid of the home economics de

would provide a balanced ration,
would be sufficient in volume to
stave off the hungry feeling, and
would provide sufficient fuel for
persons carrying on the usual ac
tivities of campus life.

Neck-Risking Critic Cains
Peep at Next of Guild Plays
A devilish lot of ingenuity the
Guild theatre employs to keep
aspiring Emerald reporters from
their rehearsals. We tried the

dispiriting rounds of the windows,
all locked. Of course, it's being
11 o’clock at night might have had
something to do with it, but neck
risking peeks into the auditorium
convinced us that the thespians
still labored, and we persisted.
A phonograph doing something
in the way of a quadrille rather
muffled our window-knocking at
the office, and when we were
heard we were motioned to be still

cramped and silent on a window
ledge till Miss Marvin had shown
him the futility of his wooing, then
the portals widened, and we step

lacked the megaphone of dicta

cries from his eerie as lights oper

regular intervals and said “yes
ma’am.” Camp stools, wigs,
buckles, pencils, copyists, a welter
of ruffles and gowns, and some
lights that didn't work—a delight
ful confusion.
We wondered how possibly a
faery thing as delicate and beau
