LAST night’s rally was a splendid one a well
organized and yet spontaneous demonstration
of school spirit and loyalty that could not help but
have had a tonic effect upon the group of gridiron
heroes who departed for the south eager to keep
their unbroken record of victories intact.
The rally chief and his crew of assistants are
to be complimented on their work, but we believe
that the student administration is going a bit too
far when it arranges to have the University library
closed an hour early in order to force students to
The library of course is only too glad to oblige.
Every hour off the daily schedule means salaries
saved and overhead reduced. Already library hours
have been pared to the absolute minimum, and stu
dents whose week-ends are the most convenient
time for study find the library doors closed against
them during a large portion of Saturday and Sun
day. That they should be closed again on a week
night, with but a day’s notice, is a further hard
ship upon that element in the student body who
must do most of their studying while the rest of
the campus is at play.
The rally committee and the A. S. U. O. offi
cials should remember that a large number of stu
dents and faculty members will not attend rallies
whether or not the libraries are closed, and the in
terests of that minority which does not accept foot
ball as one of the major interests in a college ca
reer, should be protected.
The Emerald will continue as in the past to sup
port rallies and urge that every student attend
them. The rally committee, however, should draw
the line at abbreviating the already limited sched
ule of library hours.
TTEST1NG to the high esteem in which the
-*■ *■ University’s department of art and architec
ture is held by the great educational foundations,
came news yesterday that the department will for
the fifth successive year be awarded a Carnegie
grant of $6,750. The grant is to be distributed as
fellowships among art teachers from other schools
of higher education whose art departments need
This is recognition of a sort that should bring
a glow of pride to Dean Ellis F. Lawrence and his
associates. It amounts to an acknowledgment that
the University’s teacher-training facilities in this
field are the finest in the Northwest.
About two weeks ago another branch of the
University won signal honor. This was the law
school, whose entire graduating class of last year,
with the exception of one man, successfully passed
the state bar examination.
No words of praise can sufficiently laud the
splendid work being carried on under the direction
of Dean Morse and Dean Lawrence in their respec
tive departments. Working under enormous handi
caps of reduced staff and lacerated budgets, they
are maintaining and even raising the standards of
former years, and by their efforts are bringing glory
to the University of Oregon.
-\JKWS that the University of the State of New
’ York (not to be confused with New York uni
versity i is in reality no university at all. but merely
a board of regents who do little but meet and oc-!
easionally hand out kudoes, is uot especially shock
ing, but it leads us afield into pleasant speculation
as to the advantages of such an institution.
Think what perfect peace and quiet could bo
maintained in such a school! There would be no
squabbling over studeut morals or grades, no dis
graceful labor trouble, aud bed of all uo such end
less quaneL over matters of policy aa have af-1
flicted our more material schools. The only oppor
tunity for the dignified board of regents to get a
bit heated under the collar would be in a squabble
aver prospective recipients of honorary degrees.
And they wouldn’t even have to sow their hon
orary degrees where they would reap the most
bountiful political harvest!
Consider this idea of the figurative campus.
Ponder its restful peace, and consider whether c.
paper university would not be better than a gun- ,
powder university, such as it has been our lot to i
attend. The strange paradox of the campusless
campus points alluringly to a new road for educa
tion a way that leads not in the valley of dispu
tation and squabbling.

On Other Campuses
Formal (Journo Saves
THE University of Wisconsin, which has made
the name of Madison a symbol of liberalism in
education, is to offer its student body a course in
debunking. It is rather amusing, in view of Wis
consin's reputation as a university willing to
espouse the minority viewpoint, that the university
dons should find it necessary to subject their stu
dents to any further exploding of popular fallacies.
At Wisconsin, and for that matter at our own uni
versity, the student of liberal arts changes his ideas
pretty swiftly without the aid of any course de
voted exclusively to blasting myths.
But Wisconsin, apparently, is not taking any
chances. Their course will make it possible for
students to learn the folly of “Buy American” with
out taking a course in economics, or to find out
that Germany is not solely responsible for the World
War without taking a history course.
To find out that an old, common idea is en
tirely mistaken is a stimulating spiritual experi
ence. Once the discovery is made, the student
. should have the pleasure of playing the debunker,
by bringing the word to his acquaintances who have
not yet seen the light. But the best part of the
whole experiece is that the student has to do a
little digging himself in order that his ideas may
undergo the change which comes with a college
education. To set up the fallacies in wholesale
antity and then knock them down while the stu
dent sits by and watches smacks much of predi
gestion. Minnesota Daily.
Contemporary Opinion
A New Board Chairman
rpHERE is this which is refreshing about the
election of Roscoe C. Nelson as chairman of
the board of higher education: It promises a posi
tive leadership in educational affairs, one that will
be frank, definite and upstanding. No more whis
pering in the alcoves; no more "this is not for pub
lication” interviews; no more “confidential” audits.
The new chairman’s statement with reference
to supporting the chancellor is important both for
his subordinates and should go also to the board
itself. That requirement of loyalty should not ex
tend, however, to any denial of freedom to express
one’s self in fairness and candor, whether a mem
1 ber of a faculty or a member of the board. We
do not interpret Mr. Nelson’s demand as one in
augurating military discipline in the staffs of the
state institutions. Instead they will grow and
thrive by virtue of cooperative effort, directed and
guided by the executive at the head. -Salem States
The New Board
npHK first meeting of the state board of higher
•* education had an auspicious start. The elec
tion of Roseoe Nelson as chairman insures that the
business will be conducted promptly and that the
meetings will not get beyond parliamentary con
trol. His opening statement was heartening. It
j was a promise of harmony even if certain instruc
tors who have been at the bottom of much of the
underhand attack on the chancellor have to be told
where to head in by the board. As we interpret
the statement, it was a fair warning that coopera
tion is expected on the part of the faculty to make
the new plan in Oregon successful. This does not
mean a subserviency nor any abridgment of so
called "academic freedom.” Corvallis Gazette
, Times.
The New Heard
T T ERE m Oregon the college board of regents
elected the two new appointees, Roseoe Nel
- on. Portland, and Willard Marks. Albany, chair
man and vice-chairman, respectively. This was
done unanimously. There were no fireworks. Mr.
Nelson, who is not well known throughout the state
but appears to be very highly regarded where he
is known, issued a wise statement to the effect
that the board would back the chancellor and that
"subversive" tactics within the institutions would
not be tolerated. This was a needed warning and
if heeded will greatly reduce the amount of friction
in the system. Not all of this has "just happened."

Press Censorship and Propaganda
Propaganda organization in the
“new Germany’’ was described by
Dick Neuberger, former Emerald
editor, in a talk presented recently
before members of Dean Eric W.
Allen’s class in “Investigative
Methods in Editing.” He is the
author of a recent article in The
Nation which has called forth
much comment.
Neuberger told how statements
denying atrocities were obtained
from prominent Jews for publica
tion in a book. Touring cars drove
up to their homes, he was in
formed by several refugees, and
i they were taken under armed
j guard to the office of Dr. Joseph
Goebbels, head of the propaganda
division. Multigraphed statements
were shown them, and, when they
; refused to sign, their lives and
their families were threatened.
Convinced by “third degree” meth
ods that Goebbels meant what he
said, they finally allowed their
names to be used.
Not only are German papers
censored and used for the dissem
: ination of misleading information,
but a considerable number of for
eign papers are barred from cir
"To possess a copy of. the Man
chester Guardian is almost worth
a man's life,” Neuberger said. This
newspaper fought Hitler before his
rise to power and printed the truth
about his persecution of the Cath
olics, Jews, and liberals—until the
r|'sHIS is on campus etiquette,
* pals, so don't look for style
(more poetry than truth).

per shown to the class. Much pub
licity was given to the Schmeling

"news" is an important function
of Goebbels’ bureau, according to
Neuberger. In one case a "com
munist air raid” was reported,
when communist literature was
assertedly dropped in the streets
of Berlin by unidentified airplanes.
Newspapermen, suspicious, had in
cluded in their stories to foreign
papers, “according to the depart
ment of propaganda.’’ Later it was
proved conclusively that such a
raid had never occurred, but the
incident was given much space in
German papers and some credence
in foreign countries.
The problems of repressing facts
are manifold, Neuberger said. “It's
easy to keep out newspapers and
movies, but it’s difficult to keep
out back-biting ether waves.”
When radio stations just across
borders from Germany were in
truding too freely, the Nazis set
up electric stations on the other
side of the borders, to be turned
on only when the feared stations
were broadcasting.
In the most sensational of the
German propaganda sheets, Der
Sturmer, the name of the presi
dent of the United States is some
times spelled “Franklin D. Rosen
feld.” Democracy is as much in
disfavor as communism, and the
paper claims that “Rosenfeld” is
completely run by Jews.
“How did you get these papers
out of Germany?” Neuberger was
asked. He explained that they
were hidden under car seats when
he crossed the border.
