Just before noon Tuesday, resi

thrown into a state of wild ex

somebody to "do something.” Fi

see a tall young man attired in

opened the car door, leaped in,

to be the most elaborate dance of
the year. While the theme of the
decorations is being kept a deep,
dark, secret, Frank Wilke, public

inquisitive Emerald reporter that
the idea they are working for is a
definite relationship between ar
chitecture and fine arts.

Morse Elected
For American
Council of IPR
Choices Made From All
Law School I5:‘an Is Unanimously
Chosen at Board of
Trustees Meet
Wayne L. Morse, dean of the
University law school, was unani
mously elected to membership in
the American council of the In
stitute of Pacific Relations at the
last meeting of the board of trus
tees, according to word just re
ceived from Joseph Barnes, secre
tary of the American council.
Members in the council are
chosen from outstanding- Ameri
cans in every profession and oc
cupation, who are interested in
Pacific relations. The council is
a division of the Institute of Pa
cific Relations, which is an un
official international body estab
lished to promote the cooperative
study of the relations of the va
rious countries bordering on the
Pacific ocean.
Aims International
The purposes of the American
council are to further the common
international ends of the institute
and to contribute to a fuller un
derstanding in the United States
of the problems and opportunities
in introducing an era of under
standing and mutuality in the Pa
cific world.
Members are elected to the
council only if they have interests
and talents which they will apply
to effective programs of educa
tion and research that will fur
ther the purposes of the council.
Individuals Do Work
The work of the council is ef
fected mainly through the activi
ties of individual members or
groups of members, who advance
the institute’s purposes through
significant projects of research.
Newton D. Baker of Cincinnati,
secretary of war during Wilson’s
administration, is national chair
man of the council.
The international organization,
the Institute of Pacific Relations,
is governed by the Pacific coun
cil, which meets biennially, and
consists of one representative
from the division of the institute
in_ each country. The Pacific
council announces projects, pro
motes research, and acts as a
clearing house of information for
the national councils.
Contralto to Sing
On Monday Night
In Music Concert
At the time of the regular stu
dent recital next' Monday evening,
Miss Alice Woodson, contralto, will
appear in concert.
Miss Woodson graduated from
the University two years ago. This
is her fourth year of voice study,
under Roy Bryson, assistant pro
fessor of music in the University’s
department of music.
According to Bryson, Miss
Woodson is taking advanced work
in voice training. Her voice, he
says, combines the deep notes of
the contralto voice and the high
range of the soprano.
The concert will take the full
hour usually devoted to the pre
sentation of several undergraduate
music students.
The program will include works
in French and German as well as
English. Compositions of Mozart,
and Schumann will be heard, and
the feature number will be the Ha
banera from the opera "Carmen.”
Bryson believes that the selections
on the program are varied enough
to produce at least one entertain
ing number for every person in
the audience.
Miss Woodson was a member of
Beta Phi Alpha, and of Phi Beta,
music and drama honorary.

Dangers Seen in Increasing
Economic Nationalism Trend
The possibility of adequately j
solving the monetary problem in;
the United States without agree
ments with France, Great Britain
and other countries is null, stated
Dr. Victor P. Morris, professor of
economics, in talk given last night
before the International Relations
club, of which he is adviser.
Dr. Morris cited this problem as
an example of the dangers arising
from the growing trend toward
economic nationalism and self-suf
ficiency. He pointed out the need
or world-wide cooperation in meet
ing the economic problems of the
world today, stating that the drift
toward nationalism showed signs
of an economic war between the
nations that would be as difficult
for the people of the various coun
tries as actual war.
Such a financial conflict includ
ing currency and tariff war seems
inevitable if the present economic
nationalism continues to grow, the
speaker said.
“If the world is going to settle
into virtual national economic self
sufficiency," Dr. Morris stated,
"certain portions of the world will
have to go after more territory,
and we will see a nation like Ger
many striding out in the sun, seek
ing additional lands.
"If you have to maintain your
self inside your own boundary line,
you will have to have arms in or
der to do it,” he said.
"Furthermore,” he added, "sink
ing into economic nationalism
means a very much lower standard
of living for all, and lower stan
dards of culture.”

Morse Suggests
That Membership
Quiz Be Referred
Request of Student Committee
Is Turned Down by State
Board at Meeting;
Wayne L. Morse, dean of the
University law school, suggested
in a statement issued yesterday to
the Emerald that the question of
optional membership in the A. S.
U. O. be referred to I. H. Van
Winkle, attorney-general of the
The state board of higher edu
cation at its Portland meeting
Monday rejected the request of a
student committee of 10 that mem
bership in the Associated Students
be made optional rather than com
pulsory, as at present.
Morse declared that “much
sound argument can be advanced
in support of both sides of the
proposition” and that “it is a mat
ter which X think can be clarified
finally only by a court decision.”
The full statement follows:
“It is my understanding that the
board of higher education in its
meeting on Monday did not pur
port to pass judgment on the legal
problems involved in the organiza
tion of the A.S.U.O., but rather
assumed that the organization is
legal and rendered its decision en
tirely upon the basis of policy.
“Throughout the controversy no
member of the law faculty,, to my
knowledge, issued any official
statement as to the legality of the
A.S.U.O. I have, however, given
some consideration to the matter,
and I did, in private but not offi
cially, state to an officer of the
A.S.U.O. that I thought he could
prepare a very clear case in sup
port of his position. However, I
thought that I made it clear that
much sound argument can be ad
vanced in support of lioth sides of
the proposition, and that if I were
in private practice, I would not
hesitate to represent either side be
cause it is a matter which I think
can be clarified finally only by a
court decision.
"There are cases in some juris
dictions which seem to support the
position of the A.S.U.O. officials.
There are, on the contrary, judi
cial opinions which seem to indi
cate rather strongly that statutory
enactments would be necessary in
order to legalize the collection of
student fees for extra-curricular
activities as a condition precedent
to registration.
"Rather than continue a contro
versy which creates a state of fric
tion upon the campus, I would
venture the suggestion that both
groups should respectfully petition
the proper officials to ask for an
opinion from the attorney-general.
I think it would be most unfortu
nate because of the unfavorable

Three Students Appear Before
Croup to Make Request;
Report Scheduled
-* *
A brief assigning seven reasons
for the abandonment of compul
sory military training at tne uni
versity in favor of optional instruc
tion in R.O.T.C. courses was pre
sented to a faculty committee by,
three members of the student com
mittee on compulsory military
training yesterday.
Henriette Horak, Bill Gross, and
Wallace Campbell tendered the
brief to the faculty group, com
posed of L. S. Cressman, O. F.
Stafford, Waldo Schumacher, Carl
ton Spencer, and Major Roscius
Students Questioned
The student representatives were
questioned by this faculty commit
tee on military training, which will
submit a report of its findings at
the next regular faculty meeting
on February 7. The students may
be quizzed again before that time,
it was indicated.
The request for optional R. O.
T. C. work was first presented to
the faculty at a meeting January
17, and it was later referred to the
special committee appointed by
Dr. C. V. Boyer, acting president
of the University.
Excerpts Given
Excerpts from the brief placed
yesterday follow: “We request this
change of status because military
training is not of sufficient value
to the student or institution to
warrant its present status as a re
quired course.
“In support of the above, we cite
the following specific reasons:
“1. Compulsory military train
ing was adopted by the board of
regents of the University of Ore
gon and accepted by the faculty
in time of great national emer
gency. (Specific data regarding
the motion of the board of regents
on June 2, J916, and the subse
quent action of the faculty may be
obtained from Mr. Constance, as
sistant registrar of the Univer
“2. Compulsory military training
in peace time is contrary to
avowed national policy.
“3. Military training is not fun
damental to a liberal university
‘‘4. The courses, specifically,
cannot be required on the grounds
of physical exercise. (Qualified
authorities, both within the army
and without, condemn military
drill as physical training. It is the
task of the department of physical
education to give expert attention

Smells, Sizes in Foods Class
Coeds who had not had the op
portunity to become familiar with
the bites and tangs of famous
cheeses had that opportunity Tues
day if they were enrolled in foods
classes taught by Professor Mabel
A. Wood, of the home economics
An enticing display of cheeses
accompanied by crackers and little
bread-and-butter knives was ar
ranged in the laboratory and each
student was invited to sample the
flavors of the many varieties. Lie
derkranz, a cheese similar to
strong limberger, and romanella, a
domestic hard cheese, sat side by
side. Parmesan, an Italian import
ed cheese also represented the hard
variety. Parmisello, also from It
aly, was in a grated form by Kraft.
Roquefort, that bity appetizer,
waa in two forms—imported, in
the brick form, and processed in
a creamy spread. This cheese is
cured by mold. Edam from Hol
land comes in a huge cannon-ball
form. The outside is dyed and
shellacked with brilliant red, then
wrapped in cellophane to match.
Gjestost from Nofway is a sweet
brown cheese. It is nearly the col
or of peanut butter and has a slight
tang of peanut flavor.
Straight American Cheddar, do
mestic Swiss, domestic Danish
banquet cheese, Wisconsin brick,
and Philadelphia cream cheese
were all represented.
Highly seasoned American
cheese, which is known as aged or
snappy, was on display. Other pro
