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 •FIRA’.” 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.! STREET POLITICS IN FRANCE |> 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 nmis. 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 lines. Contemporary Opinion EDITOR INGALLS VS. EDUCATOR ZOOK 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 Washington. "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. OVERFLOW ‘‘ P W.

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 activities. “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. Eugene Morning News. * * * “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 Patterson. “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. , that was literally fanatical in quality. He also bad a~ do so many victims ot tuberculosis, tit appears I to be a fundamental characteristic of the disease) an unfailing spirit of optimism—a faith that no mat ter how dark things looked they 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 Tribune. # * * "... 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 Review. * * * “The death of Hal E. Hoss, 19th secretary of state, removed from active business and political life one of Oregon’s most colorful fig ures . . . “Clear thinking, fearless action and a keen sense of humor were Hal E. Hoss’ outstanding charac teristics. He was a competent judge of human nature and a great lover of his home . . . ”—Portland Daily Journal of Commerce. 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 tions. “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 on. “When the design is thought complete the presentation drawing is made,” concluded Hicks. LOST: ONE SHOE, SIZE 18, BY MALE CINDERELLA (Continued from Page One) served the milling crowd whose type of dress ranged from shriv elled Ghandi to a beautiful Greek goddess clothed in a full length union suit with a garland of gar denias about her lovely brow.
