To Program -
A series of gorgeous tones
touched with a bit of the pagan!
made James “The Sun God,” sung
by Victor Bryant last night, un
usually beautiful. This number, the
last on the program, concluded the
recital with brilliance comparable
to the first number, Haendal's
“Recit—O Loss of Sight” and “Air
—Total Eclipse’’ from Samson.
The latter, containing many un
accompanied passages, gave the
singer unlimited range. 1
Although it may gather volume j
on strong crescendos, the full vib
rant tenor of Mr. Bryant is never
harsh. He seems to have perfect
control of his voice, as his rendi
tion of Mozart’s “II mio tesoro
intanto” (Don Giovanni), with its
long, difficult, sustained scales,
Lovely in a soft white gown,
Theresa Kelly accompanied Mr.
Bryant. Presiding at the piano, she
gave an unusual performance, for
many of the accompaniments re
quired the skill and interpretation
of an artist.
A group of four French songs, a
group of four German songs, a
group of four English, and Wag
ner’s “Siegmund’s Liebeslied,” a
brilliant solo from “Die Walkuere, ’
completed the program.
Journalism Students
To Hear Walter Dimm
Walter Dimm, Portland printer,
and a member of the firm of
Sweeney Straub and Dimm, Print
ers, will speak to the 2 o’clock
class in background of publishing
today. The class will be open to
all journalism students and fac
ulty members who wish to attend.
In a letter to Robert Hall,
superintendent of the University
press, Dimm said he intended to
put some real work in his speech,
giving some information that will
add a bright light or two to the

in the copies he and his men in
spected at the postoffice, and that
if there were any more difficulty,
it would be from stations where
the Emeralds are delivered, should
any perchance have gone through. |
He did not anticipate any trouble,
but warned against the repetition
of such action in the future. It
was pointed out that any serious
complaints arising out of such ac
tion might cause the A. S. U. O.
to lose its permit to mail the Em
The sheets which Wilson and his
aides inserted' urged students to
vote against the proposed consti
tutional amendments. They were
above the names of a student
committee of fifty, of which Wil
son is chairman. Others named
on the committee included Tom
Tongue, new student body presi
dent, and Sterling Green, Emerald
editor-elect and present managing
editor. The Emerald backed all
the amendments save one, that
concerning optional A. S. U. O.
membership. In its place the pa
per advocated reducing A. S. U. O.
fees from five dollars to three or
four dollars a term.
It later developed that neither
the sheets nor the Emerald’s ar
guments were required, for the
necessary quorum of 500 did not
even vote, thereby causing the
amendments to be defeated auto
matically. A heavy majority was
against them regardless, however.
Robert Hall Irked
When informed of the publica
tions committee resolution disap
proving his action yesterday, Wil
son, a noted debater and student,
said, "I accept the rebuke in si
lence. I only wish to point out,
however, that I was aware of the
mailing regulation, apd made an
effort to see that no insertions got
, in the mail copies. If one or two
did, it was by accident.”
It was pointed out by Robert C.
Hall, University press superintend
ent, that the press building was
unlocked at the time Wilson and
his aides entered and did then
work. Mr. Hall, father of Bob
Hall, A. S. U. O. president, said
he deplored the act and promised
to see to it that it does not hap
pen in the future. “Such an in
excusable thing won’t happen
again,” Mr. Hall said last night.
“I will give orders that no one
on the mailing or delivery staff
sends out any papers if sheets
such as opposed the amendments
are contained in them.”
On motion of the publications
committee, Mr. Hall was sent a
letter asking him to accept re
sponsibility for the Emerald at the
press. Members present at yes
terday's meeting were George
Turnbull, Orlando Hollis. Bob Hal!,
Dick Neuberger. Bou Allen and

(Continued from Pane Two)
in foreign trade and exchange
arise, it is not because of a differ
ence in standards, but because
fluctuations in one or both of the
systems have disturbed the parity
of purchasing power. A paper
standard country can trade freely
with a gold standard country if it
will keep its money values stable
at any level which it may choose
for itself. A paper standard can
be more easily manipulated than a
gold standard, hence it will be
more difficult to maintain purchas
ing power parity under it. The
gold standard is held to be superi
or to other standards because it
carries with it its own stabilizing
machinery, while other types must
be artificially controlled or "man
Problems of international agree
ments concerning stabilization of
monetary systems do not arise be
cause of problems of international
trade, but because of a desire to
persuade another country not to
deliberately manipulate its cur
rency to secure an advantage in
foreign competition. In this re
gard “conversations” concerning
the stabilization of the several
currencies now off the gold stan
dard, do not differ materially from
those concerning the tariff, nor
from those concerning an armis
tice which will permit preliminary
problems of peace to be discussed.
Power given to the president to
manipulate our currency gives him
an economic power similar to the
power to levy retaliatory tariffs
or the power to prosecute military
reprisals. Manipulation of the cur
rency, imposition of retaliatory
tariffs, and the prosecution of mili
tary reprisals are alike in that
they are designed to injure for
eign “enemies,” political or eco
nomic, and to benefit American
citizens. They are even more alike
in that part of the American pub
lic must suffer as bitterly as the
foreign “enemy” in order that a
favored portion of the public may
A threat to inflate our currency
to injure foreign competitors is
equivalent to a threat to injure
ourselves in order to damage oth
ers. Inflation is just as uneco
nomic a weapon to use against a
foreigner as is a retaliatory tariff
or a military reprisal.
Q. What class or classes of per
sons will gain from an inflation oi
the currency? What proportion oi
the whole population of the nation
does this group represent? If the
debtor class, who are they? Busi
ness men ? Farmers ? Bankers 7
Corporations with great quantities
of securities outstanding and due
to mature ?
A. Usually this type of question
is based upon a false assumptior
that the population is divided intc
two classes — the debtor-poor anc
the creditor-rich. Relatively few
persons are exclusively creditor oi
debtor. The great business and in
dustrial world, involving hundreds
of billions in values, rests upon £
different relationship best illus
trated by banks. Each unit is
simultaneously creditor and debtor
Normally each is perpetually
debtor and creditor. “Normal’
times permit the assets, which may
be sums due on contracts, or goods
and wares, to liquidate liabilities
in the course of business. Time:
are “abnormal” when assets
whether goods and wares, oi
claims against others, shrink ir
value so liquidation is impossible
Liabilities do not shrink, as they
are matters of legal liability whicl
must be liquidated or recourse hat
to insolvency and bankruptcy
I Even the government with billion:
of debt obligations in the form o
bonds and certificates, become.
I temporarily insolvent when its as
sets, which are sums to be paic
by taxpayers from shrinking as
sets, fall below its obligations.
The strongest argument for in
i flation lies in the expectation, no
by any means proven to be de
pendabie, that inflation will bolste
i the value of debtor's assets, with
out immediately increasing debts
; so that a nearer approach to sol
vency will be possible. Inflate
credit, being purely arbitrary in it
nature, may take freak direction:
and may afford no relief what
ever to legitimate debtor interest:
If all creditors would voluntai
ily scale down their legal claim
to d parity with tb*' deflated valu
of the assets of their debtors, Lh
same type of solvency might be
■achieved. The wholesale bankrupt
cies, and composition settlements
of the depression period is a pain
ful way of making the readjust
ment of debits and credits or as
sets and liabilities essential to re
newed economic activity. The in
flationary method may seem less
painful than deflation, but it
smacks too much of the medicine
man and sleight-of-hand performer
to promise a thorough-going solu
Both deflation and inflation, or
reflation if the term has a less re
pulsive connotation are, unequal
in the incidence of the burden that
attends them. For those exclusive- ]
ly creditor or debtor there may be j
a burden of gain or loss without a
corresponding loss or gain. For the
business world as a whole losses ]
might “wash” gains, no matter
which method was used. Expedi
ency will likely deoidc which meth
od shall be used, and experience
will decide the wisdom of the 1
choice. 1

The organizations entering are
to be on hand the morning of the

as to be certain of completing
transportation of the canoes to
