Oregon, Idaho
Series Tonight
Contest W ill Commence
At 7:30 in Igloo
Reinhart to Place Regular Lineup
On Floor Against Invaders;
Kunkle Injured
Coach Richard A. Fox and his
squad of Idaho hoopsters will ar
rive in Eugene today for a two
game series with Oregon, to be
played in McArthur court tonight
and tomorrow night. Both tilts
are scheduled to start promptly
at 7:30.
Out of the race as far as first
place honors are concerned, the
Vandals are invading the Willam
ette valley with their eyes peeled
for a chance to cop Oregon State's
second position in conference
rankings. Idaho stands in third
place, with three wins and five
losses, only a game behind the
Beavers. They’ll be fighting to
keep their record as clean as pos
sible for their series in Corvallis.
Ducks Optimistic
Optimism is rife in the Duck
camp, however, and the chances
of Rich Fox hauling his boys out
of Eugene with a couple of vic
tories under their belts is consid
ered mighty slim.
The first Oregon casualty re
ported in several weeks was re
vealed yesterday when it was
learned that Ed Kunkle, tall re
serve forward, sustained a pain
fully sprained ankle in Wednes
day’s practice session, and will be
unavailable for duty for at least
a week. Ed turned in a few val
uable minutes in the second Wash
ington game last Tuesday night.
Lineup Intact
Although Bill Reinhart split his
first team and reserves up into
many different combinations last
night in practice, he reports no
intended shift in the starting line
up for tonight. The substitutes
took advantage of their oppor
tunity to shine Tuesday night and
several turned in fine perform
ances, causing many observers to
suspect that a new face or two
would be seen in the opener
against the Moscow team tonight.
Reinhart, however, hasn’t yet lost
faith in his first five. '
Four out of the five places on
the Vandals’ first team have been
taken over by new men, and all
of last year’s lettermen, with the
exception of the huge Howard
Grenier, are watching from the
bench. The sophomores who have
forged into the front ranks are
Harold Klumb and Glen Naslund,
forwards, and Merle Fisher and
Wally Geraghty, guards.
Grenier Outstanding
The team is built around Gre
nier, playing his last year of bas
ketball, who is the only veteran
pivot man in the northern division
and an almost certain candidate
for the all-northern team. The

Of Bush’s Justice
Campus Blue-Law Enforcement
In New Court’s Hands;
Earrings Banned
Women are to be restricted
from wearing high heels or ear
rings on the campus and from
smoking on the streets adjacent
to the campus, according to an
announcement made last night by
Neal Bush, vice-president of the
student body, and chairman of the
newly formed court of traditions.
This action taken by the student
relations committee revives a cus
tom fallen into desuetude in the
past few years.
Bob Hunter, president of the
Order of the O, and a member of
the court, said, in commenting on
the movement of the court to
strengthen Oregon traditions, that
the lettermen’s organization would
back anything advocated by the
new body.
“The days of intimidation by
physical punishment have passed,”
he further stated. “Realizing this,
we can only ask the whole-hearted
support of the student body in
carrying out all decisions meted
out by the court to offenders.
“The Order of the O has tried
many times this year to establish
some system of tradition enforce
ment on the campus, but has al
ways met with opposition. The
creation of the court of traditions
is a definite step in the mainte
nance of Oregon’s worthwhile tra

News Bureau, Washington, D. C.,
Feb. 6.—Needy students will re
ceive from $10 to $20 a month
from federal funds for perform
ing work, and waiver of fees will
not be insisted on. There are cer
tain fees in Oregon institutions of
higher education which are statu
tory, Senator Steiwer has informed
Harry L. Hopkins, administrator
of student funds, and unless Hop
kins’ requirement for fee waiver
be eliminated students will be
handicapped. Hopkins advised,
Steiwer today that the waiver of
fees will not be insisted on.”
Miss Janet Smith, secretary of
the employment bureau, suggests
that if there is any student in
need of funds who has not put in
an application for work at the em
ployment office, it would be a good
idea to do so in order to get in
line if these funds from the gov
ernment do become available at
the University.
Military Training; Two Opinions
In the columns below are presented the minority and majority
reports of the faculty committee on military training', as presented
respectively by Dr. Waldo Schumacher and Dr. C’. L. Cressman yester
day. It is to be noted that the regular committee report (majority)
contains no argument; all debate favorable to this recommendation
was presented from the floor. The minority report contains a state
ment of the case against compulsory drill.
Committee Report
President Boyer appointed the
following committee: Mr. Waldo
Schumacher, Mr. Carlton Spencer,
Mr. O. F. Stafford, Mr. R. H.
Back, and Mr. L. S. Cressman,
The function of the committee
was to decide upon the petition
signed by the students to change
the status of the first two years
of Military Science and Tactics
from a required to an optional
basis. It was not a question of
complete elimination of military
training which was before us, but
a change in status of the work.
The desirability of it in the college
curriculum was not challenged by
this petition. This should be borne
in mind in considering the report
of the committee.
The committee held a prelimi
nary meeting January 24 at 4
o'clock to decide on procedure. It
was decided to ask the petition
ers, (1) to subqiit a brief in sup
port of their petition, and (2) to
invite a committee of three, one

Minority Report
The .undersigned, a minority of
the committee to which was re
ferred the question of compulsory
military training, begs leave to
submit the following report, to
which are attached the letter from
the chairman of your committee
to the chairman of the student
committee, the brief presented by
the student committee, and trans
script of oral argument presented
before your committee.
1. There are no legal, contract
ual, or other obligations which
would be impaired or broken if
the University of Oregon made
military drill optional. The faculty
is absolutely a free agent in reach
ing a decision on this matter as
the following quotation from a
statement made in 1924 by Secre-*
tary of War Weeks indicates: “I
am pleased to inform you that the

the act. So far as the War De

Laissez-Faire to End, Government
To Retain Industrial Reins,
Says Local Brain-Truster
International economic agree
ments on production and con
sumption are absolutely necessary
if foreign trade is to flourish, is
the theory by Victor P. Morris,
professor of economics, set forth
in an address before the Pan
Xenia, foreign trade honorary,
last night at Gerlinger hall.
“I think that we are coming
nearer to the point where inter
national conferences will become
more and more prevalent and im
portant,” declared Morris.
Even if we can stabilize the dol
lar, the pound and maybe the
franc, our currency system will
still be unable to survive the pres
ent great international indebted
ness, Morris opined, but was un
able to say how this problem
would probably be solved.
The present industrial trends in
the United States were discussed.
Morris believes that the present
policy of government control in
industry will be permanent.
“I believe we are working to
ward an abolition of the laissez
faire system," he stated.

Old Oregon Gives
Praise to Higher
Education Board
Chancellor Kerr, Marks, Peavy,
And Boyer Are Commended
In Allen’s Editorial
Willard L. Marks, Chancellor W.
J. Kerr, Dr. C. V. Boyer, and Dr.
George W. Peavy, prominent fig
ures in state higher education, all
received praise in Robert K. Al

in the latest addition of Old Ore

Said the Old Oregon editor:
“Members of the state board of
higher education, in two smooth
and decorous sessions, seem to
have gone a long way in proving
their fitness to deal justly and de
cisively with higher educational
problems. The board, under the
leadership of its new president,
Willard L. Marks, seems to have
grasped the education viewpoint
of administration as compared to
the political autocracy that was
threatening. True enough, the
schools are public tax-supported
institutions, yet the administration
of a university or college or educa
tional system must not and cannot
be run like a state department
without serious sacrifice of educa
tion and social values. The board
is the connecting link between the
public on one hand and the educa
tors on the other. To Marks goes
much credit for recognizing this
situation, and in him the state
schools have found a man thor
oughly grounded in practical poli
tics and yet a man who sees the
need of harmonizing the demands
of the public with the subtler de
mands of sound educational prac

Five votes was the margin by which the University faculty yes

"Drip, Drip, Drip," the one-act

Guild hall players, was the first
presentation of the studio players
yesterday afternoon. The cast,
which included two persons, was

Four Sign Report
The majority, or regular com
mittee report, was signed by Carl
ton E. Spencer, professor of law;
L. S. Cressman, professor of soci
ology; Major R. H. Back, associ
ate professor of military science
and tactics; and O. F. Stafford,
professor of chemistry. The lone
advocate of optional training on
the committee was Dr. Schu
macher, of the department of po
litical science, who prepared the
minority report.
Dr. Cressman read the majority
report, and was followed by
Charles H. Howard, who read the
minority report in the absence of
its author, Dr. Schumacher. De
bate on the merits of the two rec
ommendations was brief, although
the entire meeting lasted more
than an hour and a half.
Voting Close
Voting on the motion to substi
tute the minority report for the
majority report was by roll call,
and as the balloting progressed
the positive “Yes” replies kept
pace with the equally positive
“No" answers. It was not until
the very end of the counting that
the outcome was known.
The faculty's ratification of the
majority committee report still
has merely the force of a recom
mendation, since the matter must
be brought to the state board of
higher education before the pro
posed changes go into effect.
Campbell Comments
Wallace J. Campbell, leader of
the committee of 25 students
which opened the discussion by
presenting a petition for optional
military to the faculty, gave the
following statement to the Emer
ald, speaking for the entire com
mittee :
“We feel that many members
of the faculty voted in the inter
ests of expediency rather than
conviction in this matter. It is
our opinion that a matter is never
settled until it is settled right.”
