Way” May Become Motto of
Co-op Group Next Term
If you could get room and board
for $10 to $15, would you be able
to continue at the University next
term ?
In formally presenting it3 plan
for reduced living costs, the Ore
gon Daily Emerald propounds the
above query to students faced with
the necessity of cutting costs or
quitting school. Students who are
eager to be included in a coopera
tive living project which would
halve the cost of food and. resi
dence are requested to communi
cate with the editor immediately.
Many Face Crisis
. ..Convinced that a multitude of
Oregon men and women are fac
ing a crisis in their educational
careers, the editor of the Emerald
today submitted a definite pro
posal for University investigation
and action, with the purpose of
making arrangements for cooper
ative living quarters for occupancy
spring term. The text of the mes
sage is printed at the bottom of
page one.
The plan is for those who are
willing to make sacrifices to con
tinue their education, for those
who are willing to sweep floors,
peel potatoes, serve meals, and
take their turn at the dozen dif
ferent chores which a cooperative
living establishment demands of
its occupants. The savings effect
ed through the policy of “self
service” will be devoted to reduc
ing the monthly charges.
Dorms Would Be Used
The plan further proposes dor
mitory facilities that now are idle.
It is suggested that only bare
maintenance and operating rates
be charged, so that most of the in
come of the group could be put
into food. Utilization of the dor
mitories would provide residence
convenient to the campus. The
units are all nearly completely

Eric W. Allen, dean of the school

he had decided to offer to the edi

in journalism annals. It will con

The workers in the enterprise

students in the group and each is
required to write three complete
reports a year. There will be in

Fantasy at Guild
Theatre Pleases
Large Audience
As basketball enthusiasts re
ceived the news from Washington
last night, so drama enthusiasts
received the second presentation of
"Berkeley Square."
Director Ottilie Seybolt led her
proteges through a clever drama
to an intense climax in one of the
most difficult plays she has at
tempted. Its success depended up
on sustained illusion. Lighting,
sound, and costume effects, super
vised by George Andreini, were re
sponsible in large part for a"
complishing this.
The plot is complex. A man has
a desire to relive the fascinating
past of his buried ancestor. He
wills himself into that past. Then
he falls in love with the charming,
sympathetic Miss Betty Buffing
ton, and is inextricably involved
in what suddenly becomes “a dirty,
little, pigsty of a world.”
Gram portrayed admirably the
most difficult role in the play.
Louise Marvin carried the spirit of
the time with buoyancy. Eliza
beth Scruggs admirably portrayed
the scheming mother. Chuck
Shoemaker was perfectly cast.
Novel Course Enables Blind
Students To Do Sculpturing
A new means of esthetic devel

inaugurated in the art school un
der the supervision of Mrs. Louise
B. Schroff, instructor in drawing
and painting. By her new method,
the blind students are instructed
in pottery and sculpture, a type of
culture formerly denied to them.
“Having at one time been de
prived of my sight for several
weeks,” Mrs. Schroff s^id, VI de
termined, if ever I had the oppor
tunity, to find some way to help
those who were permanently de
prived of their sight. The oppor

Realizing that the blind pos
sessed a quality that other stu
dents do not have; namely, a mar
velous sense of tactual values, and
a larger conception of unity and
mass, which is conducive to skill
in pottery or sculpture, Mrs.
Seliroff conceived the idea of in
troducing seven blind students in
a special class. Those who were
enrolled are Elizabeth Higgins,
Gladys Backe, Uldine Gartin, Glen
Casteel, Carl Lempke, Glenn Walk
er, Don Smith, and Mark Shoe
“The students showed imme
diate adaptibility to the clay and
readily expressed the fundamental
problems which were given them
in their own particular direction.
In contrast to the other students,
the blind showed as much care in
the inside and usually invisible
parts of the clay models, as the
outside. They conceive the prob

The Oregon Daily Emerald Plan
— for —
For Hard-Pressed Students
' rpo PRESERVE the benefits of higher education to students fac
ing financial problems that prohibit continuance at the Univer
sity under the present scale of board and residence charges and to
offer the opportunity of collegiate training to greater numbers of
students with limited funds, the Oregon Daily Emerald submits tne
following proposal for reduced living costs.
Confident that students inter.t upon obtaining an education will
gladly forego many of the luxuries and conveniences now offered
in carryius living institutions, recommendation is hereby made that
administrative authorities investigate the feasibility of establishing
a low cost living program that will provide board and residence at
a cost of from $10 to $15 per month.
With dormitory facilities now being only partially used, provision
might be made for renting units (such as Friendly and Hendricks
halls) at bare maintenance costs (light, heat, water, laundry), al
lowing residents to perform the necessary cleaning chores under
the supervision of graduate students.
Provide a simple, balanced diet, consisting of the less expensive
foods, and ai range for residents of the group to perform all the
, necessary duties in connection with preparing and serving meals,
except the actual cooking. By diverting a portion of the funds to
food that students now pay for rent in private homes, students can
be given regular, nutritious meals, a necessity many are now fail
ing to obtain.
The Oregon Daily Emerald believes that scorqp of students are
ready to make substantial sacrifices to obtain an education, and
will willingly enter into a supervised, cooperative plan that will ,
permit them to continue at the University at the reduced costs
proposed above, ft is suggested that immediate attention be given
this proposal so that definite provision may be made for reduced liv
ing costs for the ensuing term.

as candlesticks.
The old English tavern idea will
be carried out in every respect
even to the intermission numbers,
according to Howard Ohmart, gen

decorated in appropriate manner,
huge logs will burn in the fire
places at either end of the hall,

Dr. Mez is one of the foremost
authorities in the West on econo
mies and the tariff. An ardent
exponent of tariff reductions, he
sees free-trade as a solution to
many perplexing problems. The
text of his letter to the Oregonian:
“In the name of common sense,
let us get away from the idea that
our economic difficulties can be
solved by adopting one restriction
after another. The trade barriers
erected by all nations against for
eign imports have destroyed ex
port markets, crippled world com
merce and shipping. The tourist
trade is curtailed by high passport
fees or head taxes. Many states
have curbed the purchase of out
of-state products or services.

European Peace, Prosperity
Said Dependent on America
“Europe can no longer stand by
itself, but must lean to American
diplomatic help and sympathy in
order to maintain peace and pros
perity." So declared Dr. Richard
von Kuhlmann, noted German dip
lomat, speaking on the subject of)
“Germany’s International Posi
tion," before a large number of
students and visitors yesterday
morning in Gerlinger hall.
Because Germany has a large
population and geographical loca
tion, she holds a dominant posi
tion in Europe, stated Dr. Kuhl
mann. At present, the German
reich includes 65,000,000 people,
exclusive of Germans living in
other parts of Europe. He also
said that Germany was strictly a
national state.
“While France and England
have shewn unity and military
power from the early centuries,”
said Dr. Kuhlmann, “Germany, up
to the last half of the 19th cen
tury, was a national entity, but
not a state. A ruling principle
of France was that she would not
allow a strong nation to grow up
in central Europe. French resis
tance was broken down in the
Franco-Prussian war during the
reign of Napoleon III, and after
the treaty of Frankfort France
made up her mind to cjestroy what
Bismark had established.
“Because France and Germany
have many ties, in common, the
majority of people in France have
shown a tendency for peace and
goodwill witfl Germany. They have
shown it by their recent balloting.”

TON, Seattle, Feb. 24 — (Special)
—Out of the wreckage of a dismal
basketball season the University
of Oregon quintet salvaged a start
ling victory tonight, crushing
Washington's Huskies, 41 to 26.
The five-time champions were in
front but once, and the half-time
intermission found the lowly Web
foots leading, 21 to 13.
Led by Gilbert Olinger, midget
guard, the Oregon team fought
with a fury and savageness not to
be denied. Olinger produced 15
points. He was followed by big
Captain Roberts, who got away for
seven markers.
Sad News From Home
The Oregon boys were informed
shortly before the combat that
their comrade and teammate,
George Homer Stahl, had died at
Eugene. With this news upper
most in their minds, they traveled
the court tonight at a vicious
pace the Huskies were unable to
Only when Heamen opened the
scoring with a field goal was
Washington ahead. Olinger soon
followed with a score from the
court, and the count was tied.
Then Gib went into direct action.
He was too clever for Bob Galer
and, assisted by Cap Roberts, gave
Oregon a 10-6 lead. Then Han
over knotted the count at 10-all,
but the Webfoots spurted into a
12-10 advantage and then headed
for home.
Cap and Gib Get Going
After leading, 21 to 13. at the
half, the Webfoots took the Hus
kies for a long ride in the last
period, gaining a 38 to 20 advan
tage before the Huskies even
could get going. Olinger and
Roberts again functioned smoothly
in this stanza, Gib inaugurating
the period with two field goals.
The defeat of the Huskies this
evening all but doomed hopes of
another Washington champion
