OUR own idea of the current furore over the
spellbinding and propagandizing of Dr. Fred
erick V. Fisher, NRA field agent, is that it is a lot
of pother over very, very little.
We heard Dr. Fisher ourselves, on the campus.
We sat through his address to the end, being too
polite to leave. We thought his message too in
consequential to deserve editorial comment, his
logic too vague to merit remembrance. We simply
charged off the hour to waste of time.
Mr. Fisher is a phrasemaker of the 1917 school.
“The NRA is the declaration of interdependence!”
he proclaimed proudly. And other Fisherisms: “We
are on the threshold of the cooperative common
wealth.” “The capital has been moved from Wall
street to Washington.” "NIRA means ‘HIRA’ not
Clever stun. Anti men me peroration, wnen ne
warmly asserted that Oregon is the most beautiful
state in the Union. It should have had the audi
ence up on its chairs, waving handkerchiefs and
cheering. It didn't.
Everybody had a sudden qualm. Maybe, the
terrible suspicion intruded, this NUA stuff is all
hot air.
Someone asked Mr. Fisher how the United
States would repay, without an intolerable burden
of taxation, the cost of the recovery program. The
questioner was referred to Secretary of the Treas
ury Morgenthau. Dr. Fisher’s nearest attempt at
an explanation was that we must catch the spirit
of working together in a great common interest.
Someone asked how wages are to keep step with
rising prices. Dr. Fisher told a pat little story
about a man who showed the proper spirit by scold
ing his wife for hunting bargains, because she was
cheating some producer out of a fair profit.
Dr. Fisher wound up with a cry for the strong
est navy in the world, and a plea that every Amer
ican young man be trained for the army. And then
came the inevitable cliche: “The most effective
means of avoiding war is to be prepared for it."
But enough of what Dr. Fisher said. We
merely present salient points in his address, to show
that his talk was not so much a misleading presen
tation of his case as an inept and blundering one,
exhibiting a woeful lack of appreciation for the
seriousness and maturity of his student audieuce.
Like the ministers who protest Dr. Fisher's
spellbinding tactics, we are in thorough sympathy!
with the recovery program of the administration.
Going even further than the ministers, we believe
in the government's right to marshal popular sup-I
port by propaganda or other means. Our only re
gret is that the administration has chosen as its
representative a speaker who confuses rather than1
enlightens, who fosters doubt instead of confidence.!
|> EVOLUTION - HALLOWED scenes in Baris
•P*1 have during the past several days once more
witnessed bloodshed in street rioting. The dead
are estimated at a score or more, the injured at
more than 500. Rising out of the Stavisky pawn
shop finance scandal, the riots have been carried
on by thousands of citizens under the leadership of
Royalists and Communists, strange companious-iu
Police proved inadequate in halting the frenzied
| throngs that surged Into stately squares and
I through public buildings, and mounted troops—
:olonials from northern Africa—were called upon
to disperse them. Pari3 soldiery could not he
trusted, for hundreds of veterans were marching
through the streets crying “Resign! Resign!”
Daladier, successor of Chautemps to the cabinet
premiership, saw his support dwindle in the face
of street terrorism. Former President Doumergue
was called upon to build a new cabinet. Significant
was Daladier’s unsuccessful attempt to form a min
istry with no radical representation, some days ago.
A pawnshop scandal is a little difficult to see
as the cause of mob action in one of the world’s
finest capitals. The municipally-operated pawn
shops, however, are a national French institution.
Pawnshop bonds are considered gilt-edge securities;
but the Stavisky case involved the sale to the
French public of some 500,000,000 francs’ worth of
fraudulent bonds. Corruption is considered general
throughout French politics, and the French, who
are renowned for taking their political troubles
into the streets, have hern stirred to revolt.
The Royalists, as well as Communists, have
waited long for just such an opportunity to fan
the flames of popular resentment. Many observers
are sure that Royalist supporters number in the
millions who are ready for military action at any
time the hour of royalty is declared at hand. Com
munists have an organization rigidly disciplined in
methods of revolutionary combat. The two extrem
ist groups are working together to overthrow the
Republic, leaving the problem of which is to hold
sway as one of those bridges to come.
From the meager interpretative material re
ceived from correspondents in France, American
commentators have been voicing fears of imminent
fascism in that country, though France has always
been considered as the most stalwart stronghold
of opposition to political ideas from Italy and Ger
many. Any prolonged struggle, however, between
such uncompromising, diametrically opposed groups
as French Royalists and French Communists must
inevitably result in a dictatorship along fascist
Contemporary Opinion
Student Revolutions
/ANE of the most healthful symptoms on the
campus of the University of Oregon, is the
number of “student revolutions” it produces.—Eu
gene Guard. The Guard has a queer idea of
“healthful symptoms.” We presume then that if
the editor of the Guard has half a dozen children
and they are in a constant state of revolution
against parental rules and regulations that it is a
"healthful symptom.” We have a different idea
about it. It seems to us that the most unhealthful
symptom of conditions on the university campus
are the frequent “student revolutions.” The reason
it is an unhealthful symptom is that it is an index
to the contents of the minds of the students’ in
structors. The university must be honeycombed
with pink professors so called "liberals” who are
both pacifists and against the capitalistic order.
There is no other way to account for the sentiment
prevailing on the university campus. The minds of
the students are plastic,- impressionable. Under
the inspiration of the kind of “noble sentiments”
about the injustice for the under dog and all that
and the submerged tenth or nine tenths, students
get entirely impractical ideas about the facts of
life. When they get out into the world, much of
the bunk they acquire from teachers of sociology,
is overcome and real experience in business makes
them forget the things they learn from reddish
professors of economics, but, in the meantime, they
have “frequent student revolutions,” which the
Guard thinks is a healthful sign. The only kind
of a student revolution that would be a healthful
sign would be one in which they arose in their
wrath and denounced any professor with pacifistic
tendencies or ideas favoring radicalism as applied
to economics.—Corvallis Gazette-Times.
A New Note Is Struck
|%yjrANY things have been said against college
students of a derogatory nature, but no doubt
the most surprising of them all was the criticism
of Federal Commissioner of Education Zook at the
meeting of the National Student federation in
"My complaint about college students,” he said,
"is that they are too darned docile. They are too
easily bossed. They don't create enough problems
for the college anti university administration."
Such a statement must appear as heresy to most,
college administrators who are constantly in fear
that students in their schools will do something to
draw the criticism of the people and the press and
who probably spend sleepless nights over the public
attention that the antics of some of their charges j
have attracted.
Commissioner Zook’s statement has stamped
him as one of the best allies that American college
students have.—Oklahoma Daily.

Going Up ... By STANLEY ROBE
Hal E. Hoss
“WITH the untimely passing^ in
™ the prime of life of Secretary
of State Hal Hoss, Oregon loses
an honest, able and conscientious
executive and the board of con
trol its balance wheel. Capable,
courteous, and efficient, Mr. Hoss
made an ideal man for the office
and his capacity for growth prom
ised still wider fields for future
“Though by training and occu
pation a newspaper man, the only
one in recent years to receive pub
lic office in Oregon, Mr. Hoss
measured fully up to the require
ments of his position. He was
conservatively progressive and his
regime untouched by scandal.
Evenly balanced mentally, he
steered aloof from political and of
ficial factionalism and if he made
mistakes, they are not of record.
“A loyal friend, a fair opponent,
devoted to his family, he leaves a
multitude of friends throughout
the state to sincerely mourn his
passing.”—Salem Capital Journal.
“Nobody in any newspaper of
fice in the state was surprised
when word came yesterday that
Hal Hoss was dead. The gravity of
his illness was too well known.
But knowledge that the end was
coming did not minimize the sense
of loss the word brought, ,for
more than any other of the state's
public officials, Hal Hoss was a
friend of newspaper men—and for
good reason, too. He was a news
paper man himself.
“ . . . Hal Hoss was especially j
well known and liked in Eugene j
because of his interest in the Uni- j
versity. While he was affiliated!
with the Oregon City Enterprise
he was a frequent visitor on the
campus. He was likely to come
wandering into the journalism
shack most any day and both pro
fessors and students enjoyed hav
ing him sit on their desks and talk.
It was so in any newspaper office.
He was both genial and frank in
conversation, never fearful of ven
turing an opinion and yet never a
conversation monopolizer. And he
liked the youthful contacts he
made on the campus.
“A young member of Alpha Del
ta Sigma, honorary advertising i
fraternity, threw a revealing light
on the man’s personality. "When
we took him into the honorary,”
the young man said, “Hal refused
to go in with just the sort of in
itiation we usually gave honorary
mebmers. He said he wanted the
works. So we put him through
with the uvular members horse
play and all. And he enjoyed ev
ery minute of it. Gee, it was swell.

“So it's '30' for Hal Hoss. No
man ever made a more gallant
fight for life, than this veteran
Oregon newspaper man, who left
his copy desk on the Oregon City
Enterprise to become secretary of
state under the late Governor
“A year before his death he was
critically ill, and several years be
fore that, he was a very sick man.
Had he followed the advice of
friends and family, at that time
and taken to his bed, he might be
alive today.
"But while he looked like some
sort of pre-Raphaelitie ghost, and
presented a wan and smiling coun
tenance to the world, there was
not only plenty of fire and iron
within, but there was spirit of
fight and devotion to public duty. ,

to be a fundamental characteristic
of the disease) an unfailing spirit
of optimism—a faith that no mat

would cOme out somehow all right
in the end.
“So he stuck to his job, fought
for what he believed to be right,
regardless of the odds against
him, until he literally dropped in
his tracks, had to be carried out,
and was taken to an eastern Ore
gon sanitarium. But then it was
too late, and for many months,
the final summons, were only a
question of time.
“Too bad! The death of Hal
Hoss is a loss to the newspaper
profession of Oregon, and a great
loss to the state. He was a capa
ble journalist, an efficient secre
tary of state, a most lovable and
considerate friend.”—Medford Mail
# * *
"... Hal was known and loved
in every county—in every section
of Oregon. He was perhaps the
most popular man ever to hold
office in this state. . . .
“Wee deeply mourn losing Hal.
It is tragic that he should be taken
just short of the very peak of his
service to mankind. Hal was a
young man. He has been a vital
and constructive force in state af
fairs for many years but had he
lived he could have accomplished
even greater things for this state
which he loved.”—Roseburg News

secretary of state, removed from
active business and political life
one of Oregon’s most colorful fig
ures . . .

and a keen sense of humor were
Hal E. Hoss’ outstanding charac

Hicks Outlines Way Students
Solve Approach to Problem
Outlining the process that archi
tectural students follow in the ap
proach to a problem, Ed Hicks,
senior in arts and architecture, ex
plained the procedure carried out
in the designing of buildings.
“First you are given a state
ment of a problem, explaining the
type of building to be designed,
and its requirements. After re
viewing the work of the past in
that field, and collecting all tech
nical data on the subject, one sets
about to solve his own particular
problem,'1 Hicks stated.
“The first step is to analyze the
approaches, contours, size, and
shape of the piece of property, fit
ting the different units of the plan
into the most advantageous posi
“When a satisfactory plan ar
rangement has been found, one
may approach the study of the ele
vations. In developing this third
dimension, minor changes in plan
are permissible, but one must al
ways bear in mind that the plan
arrangement must not be sacri
ficed for the sake of improving
the elevation.” Hicks pointed out
that, ‘‘As an aid in composing the
exterior m isses a clay model is
often of great value. This enables
the designer to view the building
from all angles.
‘‘After this, smaller technicali
ties, such as the width of doors
and the relationship of one window
to another, are taken into consid
eration. The detail is then studied
not merely as a decoration, but as
a part of the building itself. It
must give the impression of being
cut into the building and not stuck
“When the design is thought
complete the presentation drawing
is made,” concluded Hicks.

In setting up the framework for
more rigid tradition enforcement
and stating definitely the tradi
tions to be enforced, the student
relations committee pointed out
that it was given power by the
ASUO constitution to “supervise

tions as it shall deem worth while,
and declare which body shall be
j the enforcing agency for the
, same.”
Neal Bush, who will act as
chairman of the enforcement
group, last night made the follow
ing statement: “The court is ready
