The Emerald’s Creed for Oregon
There is always the human temptation to
forget that the erection of buildings, the formulation of
new curricula, the expansion of departments, the crea
tion of now functions, and Bimilar routine duties of
the administration are but means to an end. There is
always a glowing sente of satisfaction in the natural
impulse for expansion. This frequently leads to regard
ing achievements as ends in themselves, whereas the
truth is that those various appearances of growth and
achievement can be justified only in so far as they
make substantial contribution to the ultimate objec
tives of education .... providing adequate spiritual
and intellectual training for youth of today—the citi
zenship of tomorrow. . . .
“ . . . . The University should be a place where
classroom experiences and faculty contacts should stimu
late and train youth for the most effective use of all
the resources with which nature has endowed them. Dif
ficult and challenging problems, typical of the life
and world in which they are to live, must be given
them to solve. They must be taught under the expert
supervision of instructors to approach the solution of
these problem* in a workmanlike way. with a dis
ciplined intellect, with a reasonable command of the j
techniques that i re involved, with a high sense of in
tellectual adventure, and with a genuine devotion to the
ideals of intellectual integrity. . . ."—From the Biennial |
Report of the University of Oregon for 1U31-32.
j I
The American people cannot he too careful in |
guarding the freedom of speech and of the press
against cur/ailment as to the discussion of public
affairs and the character and conduct of public
men. —Carl Schurs.
PERTINENT facts and details prove the validity
and advisability of the Emerald’s for reduced
living costs. Any conscientious marshaling of the
statistics will indicate beyond a doubt the neces
sity for putting the proposal into effect at once.
Ffo time should be lost in getting under way. This
is an occasion for action, not delay. Needless bick
ering and trivial criterion have no place in a Bitua
tion as momentous and imperative as this one.
A multitude of future citizens depend upon the
establishment of a large-scale cooperative living
organization to enable them to obtain education.
There are young people in every corner of the com
monwealth, loafing and idling because it costs too
much to go to college. The Portland high schools
are crowded to capacity with students taking post
graduate work— students who should be at the Uni
versity, the state college, or the normal schools—
but whose finances are inadequate.
Neither Chancellor Kerr nor the state board of
higher education is unaware of the needs and ambi
tions of those students. The board members, all
keenly interested in students and their problems,
live in widely separated localities. Yet, each knows
of numerous deserving young men anil women who
must spend their teens and early twenties in idle
ness because it is too expensive to go to college.
There are many ramifications and details to be
provided for in a plan as large-scale as that which
the Emerald proposes, but its advantages no one
can doubt. The entire state realizes the need and
demand for it.
In its efforts to determine the need and desire
for the installation of the plan, the editorial board
of the Emerald has noticed frequent conditions
which the proposal would better. One group of
students is'paying 35 per cent of its funds for food
and 65 per cent for rent. This proportion should
be reversed. The introduction of the Emerald plan
would do so. There are numerous other groups liv
ing under similar conditions, all of which would be
improved immeasurably by the Emerald proposal.
The plan hus been investigated and commented
upon favorably by a multitude of disinterested per
sons. Its inception seems a foregone conclusion if
the administration sees fit to undertake it. And
considering the understanding and knowledge ot
student proolems that Chancellor Kerr and the
board have shown in the past, we are confident they
will give the problem serious thought.
TT'VERY martyr lias his Judas.
For every plan of progress, for every pro- i
gram of vision, for every proposal of social advance
ment there is always the knocker, the cynic, the;
backr.stabbei-. The dead-weight inertia of conser
vatism is a heavy enough burden for every pro
gressive movement to bear without the organized
opposition of self-centered opponents of justice and
At home or abroad, m the eapilul or on Ik"
campus, it is all too true that those that ride the!
saddle give little heed to those they trample under
foot. To clamber to success over the backs of the'
poor and helpless is but to parallel on a larger1
scale climbing to collegiate heights over the Weary
shoulders of less fortunate fellows.
When the crying need is ACTION there is no
place for crafty criticism, for clever condemnation,
or for deception and deliberate destructive tactics..
If the high and haughty cannot invoke a spirit of
sacrifice, the least they can do is maintain a posi
tion of tolerance and fairness.
We need men to face the hour.
OREGON must dream again! America must
dream again! The dreams of the pioneers
have been forgotten in the mad business of earning
livings, paying off mortgages, going to school, and !
in the general pressure of a business depression.
A thought expressed by Frazier Hunt, world
traveller, in the February issue of Good House
keeping is worth repeating:
"I thought of the old dream of America—the
dream that had sent settlers across stormy seas to
untracked forests and unknown river valleys in
search of some mystical freedom; the dream that
had pushed the pioneers on westward to the rolling
free lands; the dream that had raised common
lowly men to self-respect, a new citizenship; a
dream that had given for the first time in the
world, universal free education, and that had sent
almost a million, young men and women each year
into our countless colleges and universities.”
American pioneers once dreamed of a vast em
pire in the West, a land of comparative freedom,
wealth, and vast natural resources. It was to be
a land in which each individual would be evaluated
in terms of his true worth. The hectic conditions of
the last few years have turned that dream into
somewhat of a nightmare, caused perhaps by gorg
ing too much food and living too high back about
But dreams can be pleasant and dreams can be
real. Yes, Mr. Frazier, America must dream again.
It must be a dream of a greater commonwealth,
a greater nation, higher ideals, and a real brother
hood for all.
TNO SORORITIES justify their existence as any
thing more than social living organizations
with emphasis on the "social” ?
Yes, they do, but few people outside of the par
ticular fraternal circle know anything about it. All
sororities have some philanthropic or scholastic
project which they have established and maintain.
Summer camps, nurseries, student loan funds
these are but a few of the commendable ventures
of Panhellenic organizations.
A series of articles, appearing alphabetically on
the women's page, will present all these projects.
They are sponsored by the local organization of

145,000 Nomad Youths
1Y>|TLITARY training for jobless youths appeared
to be the American answer to the problem of
what to do with 145,000 to 200,000 nomads last
Monday, when the United States senate voted unani
mously to appropriate $22,000,000 for keeping the
citizens’ training camps open all year, and offering
them as a refuge and school for the wanderers.
Germany's answer to the identical problem >s
the labor battalion, in which military discipline
and work on rural development are united. Rus
sia's answer—or one of Russia's answers—is the
Children’s City, outside of Odessa, where 2,500
young Communists are running a self-governing
and almost self-supporting community.
Hard times brought national planning for needy
youths to all three countries. They came first to i
Russia, then to Germany, and then to this country.
Each nation, as homes broke down, saw the rest
less, adventurous and self-reliant boys of the coun
try leaving families which could no longer support
them, and striking out on their own resources to be
casual laborers, panhandlers, tramps, and some
times criminals. Each nation recognized a problem
and a menace, and now, after much publicity for
the “forgotten boy,” the senate has acted to care
for him.
The proposal for training jobless youths in the
citizens' camps was made by Senator David A. Reed, :
| Republican, of Pennsylvania, during a debate on the
j $370,000,000 army appropriation bill. Senator James j
Couzens, Republican, of Michigan, offered an |
amendment providing that the regular army posts |
should be refuges, but this proposal met the objec-j
; tion that it would demoralize the army posts, since
■ under the amendment the youths to be cared for |
would not work, but merely take setting up drills I
and subject themselves to discipline.
| Such a proposal, it was contended, would have I
: led thousands of youth* to avoid work deliberately
\ for six months in order to loaf in a camp where I
free food, bedding and clothing would be available.!
j Then Senator Reed made his proposal; Senator I
I Couzens accepted it, and the measure was quickly
i passed.
Under the Couzens amendment, if it passes the
house of representatives, and is signed by the presi- j
idem, $,">,000,000 will be made available immediately,
and $17,000,000 in the next fiscal year. Under the
law, any youth between the ages of 15 and 21, who
has been jobless for six months, may apply for entry i
into the training camps if an American citizen,
sound of mind and body. Once admitted, he will
receive the same training as has been given each
summer to volunteers since the camps were started
According to a census just made by the national!
committee on care of the transient and homeless,
1,335 social agencies in S09 cities have reported
1,250,000 persons without homes and wandering
about the country, of whom only 11 per cent, or!
115.000. arc boys under 21. Other estimates, made I
previously, have placed the number at approximate
ly 200,000. The appropriation act passed by the
senate, if it becomes a law, will provide for SS.000
boys, an annual expense of $250 each, and'
taking them off the glutted labor market will give
them a year's education. State, town and city
agencies arc ixpccted to care for thousands
more, just as the Children's Aid society of New
York city is doing, placing many on farms.—New
York llerald-Tribune.

Letters to the Editor
All “Letters to the Editor” must bear
either the signature or initials of the
writer, the former being preferred. Be
cause of space limitations, the editor
reserves the right to withhold such
communications as he sees fit. All let
ters should be. concise and to the point.
The editor of the Emerald solicits opin
ions and constructive criticism from
the members of the student body.
Mr. Pulido’s Reply
To the Editor of the Emerald:
Sir: Although I did not write
Major Back’s story as it appeared
in Wednesday’s Emerald, I admit
I am largely responsible for it.
For this reason I am taking oc
casion to comment on Dr. Harold
J. Noble’s condemnation of said
To begin with, Dr. Noble admits
that Major Back said it would be
better for the United States to'
stay out of the league which is a
"polite debating society dominat
ed by the French.” This was the
major’s answer to Reverend Pal
mer's assertion that military men
are against America’s joining the
league and the world court. Yes,
Major Back denied he was against
the United State’s adhering to the
world court, and this point was
not mentioned in the story. But
the more important thing is the
major’s calling the league a debat
ing society, so this was played up
and quoted very accurately.
In the second place. Dr. Noble
admits that Major Back said that
in Salem there is an institution
for people of abnormal faith. This
statement of the tnilitary officer
was a quick reply to a law pro
fessor's question whether the ma
jor thought a nation could rely on
its faith in another or not. This
statement may have been intended
for a joke but it certainly seemed
to have carried with it a degree
of sting. What if this should have
been played up, too ?
In the third place, Dr. Noble
said that Major Back did not as
sert the superiority of offense over
defense. Point No. 2 of the five
points brought forth by the major
says, as quoted by the Register
Guard: “Often the military offen
sive is the most efficient defensive
measures." How much difference
between the two statements can
the history professor find?
We are all susceptible to mak
ing mistakes anti r admit that Ma
jor Back did not say "that war is
an adjunct of economic progress."
But as I understood, he said as
his fifth point, “war occurs.” As
to when, he did not say, but he left
the impression that he meant war
occurs in the course of the pro
gress of nations.
After having finished reading
his dry lecture, the major was
subjected to questioning by his
hearers, mostly faculty members.
It should be interesting to note
that quite a number of those pres
ent did not agree and could not
agree with many points presented
by the major on the international
respects of disarmament.
Maximo M. Pulido.
Probation I p Again!
To the Editor of the Emerald:
Sir: There has been consider
able discussion among my friends
as to the apparent injustice in the
scholarship committee's ruling on
the cases of Kek McKean and
Harry Schenk. Although having a
higher average for the preceding
term. McKean was not allowed to
continue his basketball manager
ship. but Schenk was allowed to
retain his position as business
manager of the Emerald.
Is this an evidence of prejudice
on the part of the committee or
rvjf'TPi.v tpo^ rrfu! political aifiVi !
atiou-- of Mr. Schenk? t\ c do not
doubt the ability of Mr. Schenk,
for we assume that unless he was
as competent as the average col
lege business manager, he would
not have been given any special
consideration by the committee.
However, many students, I feel,
[ would welcome a more complete
explanation of the apparent favor
I thoroughly approve of the in
telligent and constructive manner
in which the Emerald has carried
on its campaign against an out
moded political machine, and am
especially interested in its at
tempt to reduce the living ex
penses of students. F. D.
