There’ll Be Work in the Hills This Summer
At Camp Roosevelt, In the George Washington national forest near Luray, Va., 200 boys are at work on the first reforestation
project under the President’s plans for giving employment to a jobless “army” of 250,000. But before they could get down to improving
the forest, they had to carve out a home for themselves in the woods. The picture to the left shows a group of them clearing a camp
site. In the middle are two boys pounding tent stakes while a third carries pine branches for a l>cd. The boys at the right are lined
up for “chow,” the day's most welcome feature, many of the campers having been long months “on the road.” Close-ups of some of
the 200 appear at the top.

Make Your 'Fight for Liberty
——— . EDITORIAL - --
CENATOR LaFOLLETTE, who dedicated his life to a battle
^ for the people, once said: “Each generation must make its
own fight for liberty.’’
YOU are part of a generation of University of Oregon stu
dents. You have an opportunity to march to the polls and
make your generation’s fight for liberty today. And what are
^>u going to do about it? Are you going to be turned back
by quasi-politicians defending their own selfish rights? Are
you going to be talked out of it by those guarding their per
sonal interests? It is up to you, and you alone.
We have no jealous interest in the amendments on which
you will vote today. Our race in the student body is run. But
we are thinking of the generations to come, and so should you.
At the polls today you will have an opportunity to cast off
the yoke of alumni influence that has weighed upon the student
body. Throughout the land leading colleges have voted to con
fine their government to students and faculty men. Let us
follow their example today. It is an opportunity which we
should not forsake. Don’t fool yourself that it will come again.
Those who promise they will revise the constitution have said
nothing whatsoever about confining legislative powers to stu
dent and faculty. Their silence speaks louder than words. If
they had any intentions of eliminating alumni membership, they
would have declared them by this time.
Do not misinterpret our statement. We appreciate the in
terest the alumni have shown in our government. BUT WE
BODY AND THE FACULTY. Help run the A. S. U. 0. now,
not when you’re out of college and making your way. We
recommend to you today all amendments, save only one.
That one is the proposal which seeks to make membership
in the associated students optional. The present financial
structure of the A. S. U. 0. virtually forbids such action. We
hold no brief for that condition. We admit it exists partially
because of the disappointing gate receipts at last football sea
son. But we must face facts. The associated students cannot
survive the decrease in income which would result from op
tional membership.
Better than optional membership, we favor a reduction in
fees. If today’s optional membership amendment is defeated,
there is no reason why the executive council should not con
sider lowering A. S. U. 0. fees to twelve or nine dollars a year,
instead of the fifteen as at present. We believe that to be a
far better solution than the shift to optional membership. For,
in the last analysis, it is the state board of higher education
which must decide upon fees. And the state board will be in
a much more strategic position to act if there is a recommenda
tion to reduce A. S. U. 0. fees, rather than to make their pay
ment optional.
So go to the polls today. Vote YES on all amendments
except that which involves optional membership.

Amendments; ASUO Officers

To Vote Today;
Polls Open At9
Tongue Ticket Remains
Unopposed in Race
Several Amendments on Ballot;
Six Up for Co-op Board;
Competition Expected
For the first time in the history
of the University’s political activ
ity the Associated Student body
will go to the polls today with the
candidates of one party in the field,
that headed by Tom Tongue. To
day, also, will decide the fate of
several proposed A. S. U. O. con
stitutional amendments.
The polls will be at the YMCA
hut from 9 o'clock this morning
until 3 p. m. this afternoon, but
with the single ticket there will
be little or no feverish rushing to
cast votes for the most favored
candidates, since the outcome does
not need any serious thought to
figure out.
Tongue's ticket was the only
one in the field for nomination of
student body officers at a general
student meeting a week ago and
has remained the only one since
that date.
The lone ticket will be headed by
Tongue, running for president of
the Associated Student body for
the year 1933-34, His home is in
Hillsboro, and he is a member of
Chi Psi fraternity. This year he
held the position of business man
ager for the Oregana. Neal Bush,
now president of the junior class,
is out for the office of vice-presi

and he is a member of Alpha Tau

Wild Rumors Say
New Candidates
On ASUO Ballot
TJUMORS were current on the
campus late last night that
another party had filed for po
litical offices and that the
names of its candidates would
be on the ballot today. None of
those who sought information
on the matter seemed to know
who the reported office-seek
ers were, but some of the
names mentioned were Howard
Bobbitt, Butch Morse, Bruce
Hamby, Chuck Wishard, George
Bennett, Evelyn Kennedy,
Parks Hitchcock, Malcolm
Bauer, Jack Robertson and Le
Roy Shaneman.
The Emerald was unable to
reach student officers for a con
firmation or denial of the ru
mor, but those close to the sit
uation said they were sure or.ly
one candidate for each post was
printed on the ballot. It was
pointed out that all petitions to
run for office had to be in by
last Saturday nijrht, and that
only Tom .Tongue and his tick
et complied with the orders.
The rumor was dismissed b^
members of the Emerald staff
as one of the wild reports
which generally precede elec
tions, although someone said
they actually expected to see
additional names on the ballot

Membership In
ASUO Involves
Much Interest
Optional Clause Is To Be
Decided Upon
Judiciary Group Says Proposals
May Be Voted on O.K.;
Other Changes Up
Before the student body today
is one of the most vital measures
ever to appear on the ballot at
an A. S. U. O. election. It is a
proposal to make membership in
the associated students optional,
thus giving students the privilege
to determine whether they wish
to pay the $15 assessed annually
for membership in the organiza
tion. Of course, even should the
amendment pass today, it has been
pointed out that final action in
the matter would be up to the
state board of higher education,
which fixes what the fees at each
school in the system shall be.
This particular amendment has
aroused considerable controversy
on the campus. Some students
say its passage would wreck al
most completely all activities of
the associated students, including
athletics, publications and other
events. Others claim the finan
cial distress which assails so many
students and families makes the
passage of the proposal impera
tive. Taken by and large, the
amendment has aroused more con
troversy than any proposed con
stitutional change in several years.
Judiciary Says O. K.
Additional interest was injected
into the situation yesterday when
Bill Bowerman, vice-president of
the student-body, requested a rul
ing from the judiciary committee
as to whether or not the amend
ments could be printed legally on
tlie ballot. Bowerman pointed out
that the proposals were not head
ed correctly when they were read
by him before last week’s A. S.
U. O. meeting and when they
were printed in the Emerald in
accordance with the constitutional
provision which governs amend
Bowerman further said it wa3
not designated clearly whether
the proposals were amendments to
"the by-laws or the constitution
proper, and also that other mat
ters in the headings.were not made
very clear. The judiciary com
mittee, however, ruled that if the
body of the amendment were pub
lished correctly, the proposal could
go on the ballot. Therefore, the
i amendments stand, and will be
voted on duly today.
