Allen Declares
Discussions of
Strife Useless
American and Japanese
War Improbable
Dean of Journalism School Tells
Eugene Rotary Club of Trip
To Orient In Summer
There is no valid reason for talk
of war between the United States
and Japan, Eric W. Allen, dean of
the school of journalism, told tlfe
Eugene Rotary club yesterday
noon. Dangers rising from con
flicting interests of Japan with
Russia and Great Britain are more
serious, he said.
The dean," who traveled with a
party from the University in the
orient this summer, explained the
conflict between Great Britain and
Japan. Recently, he said, Japan
has come out ahead of Great Brit
ain in the manufacture of cotton
goods. Japan has paralleled every
steamship line of the British and
has forged ahead in other ways.
Meanwhile, Great Britain, losing
out in industry, is fortifying and
strengthening her naval base at
Diplomacy Needed
Unless skillful diplomacy is
used, Dean Allen added, trouble i.;
likely to result if, aft a disarma
ment conference in the near fu
ture, Great Britain refuses when
Japan asks naval equality and that
the British neutralize Singapore.
Hurt feelings, he commented,
are almost the only basis for any
supposed conflict between Japan
and the United States. Friendship
between the two nations is ex
ceedingly possible and desirable.
'There is no commercial rivalry be
tween the two nations, their trade
being of a cooperative sort.
As to the source of the “hurt
feelings,’’ Dean Allen pointed out
that the Japanese were hurt at
the United States exclusion act.
America in turn became greatly
concerned over the treatment of
the Chinese. The United States
wrote notes, and the Japanese
were hurt; the Japanese ignored
them, and the United States felt
hurt; and so it went.
Party Well Treated
Attention and courtesy beyond
imagination was shown the party
from Oregon in its travels in Ja
pan, Dean Allen told the Rotarians.
“I feel that someone ought to
say something for China, too, how
ever,’’ Allen remarked. “China
may be disorderly, ragged, and
poorly organized. Yet everyone
admires, likes, and respects the
country and its very remarkable
Chinese are the original “rugged
individualists,” he said, and it is
impossible to govern and manage
them except through their own
methods. China is an old country,
its history dating back thousands
of years. Even their households
today are much the same as they
were before the birth of Christ.
The answer given by any Chi
nese to a question about his opin
ion on Japan in Manchuria invar
iably is about like this: “The Jap
anese are well-organized; they

Approves Project
Virgil D. Earl, dean of men,
yesterday signified his approval of
the new frosh flaming O, which
will replace the traditional bonfire
of past Homecoming, celebrations.
Dean Earl Favors
‘Flaming O’ Over
Traditional Fire
Freshman Project to Eight Sky
From Skinner’s Butte as
Tribute to Old Grads
Virgil D. Earl, dean of men, yes
[ terday expressed himself in favor
of the new flaming “O” of the
freshman class as a substitute for
the old frosh bonfire. “It is a
great improvement over the bon
fire, not only because it will made
a better display, but because it
will save the freshmen time and
work,” he said.
A1 Davis, appointed general
chairman of the frosh flaming “O”
by Fred Hammond, yearling presi
dent, selected his committee chair
man. They are Wallace MacGreg
or assistant chairman; Don Thom
as, business manager; Dick Bowe,

tion: Harry Ragsdale, publicity
chairman; DeWitt Peets, chair
man of the guard; Bob Halloweli,

The flaming “O” will light up

Renowned Friendship Tree
Has Descendants on Campus
“Light Horse Harry” Lee famous
horseman of revolutionary days
and close friend of George Wash
ington, has descendants being
nursed along on the Oregon cam
pus. These living specimens date
only three generations back to the
famous hero of colonial history.
Queen Elizabeth, George Wash
ington and General Brown are as
sociated closely with the geneal
ogy of these descendants of Harry
Lee's. A huge horse chestnut tree,
growing in Bath, Pennsylvania, is
the axis about which the story re
Thirteen, a famous number in
American history, played a part
in the history of this tree also, for
on April 13, 1785, General Harry
Lee presented George Washington
with 12 sapling horse chestnut
trees as a token of friendship.
Ten of these were planted in his
j garden at Mount Vernon.
The trees were probably des
cendants of those brought by a
ship's captain from the shores of
the Mediterranean and presented
to Queen Elizabeth. The Lee fam
ily was in favor at the court at
this time and scions from these
trees were given them to carry to
America. It was from these trees,
planted at Stratford, Virginia, that
Harry Lee cut saplings to present
to Washington.
Washington, as a token of grati
tude and friendship, gave two of
the saplings to General Brown,
who was a close aide to him dur
ing the Revolution. Only one of
these trees grew, and it is still to
be seen in Bath, Pennsylvania.
America’s Friendship tree, as it
is known, stands as a symbol of
friendship between three patriots^
their loyalty and respect tor each
other, and their struggles for the
freedom of this nation.
Barbara Bayne, tree historian of
America, became interested in this
famous American tree and, as a
symbol of American friendship,
has sent seeds to all the universi
ties of America, to America’s pos
sessions, and to many nations of
the world. It is her aim to perpct
