The Day’s
Academician Poincare
Lazarus Revived
M. Barthous Friends
Within a few weeks, thirty
eight green-uniformed, besworded
worthies will gather to elect two
more“immortals” to the ranks of
the Academie de Francaise. The
French Academy, number one roll
call of Gallic celebrities, must
maintain the number of 40 mem
bers established by Cardinal Rich
elieu in 1G45. Members whose cop
ious shoes must be filled are: M.
Louis Barthou, elected 1918, and
M. Raymond Poincare, elected
Versailles Again?
Dead in his study, lay Raymond
Poincare, 74, yesterday, war-time
president and thrice premier of
France, the victim of old age and
general debility. One of the old
Guard of French career diplomats,
by French uanegyricits Poincare
will be lauded to the skies for his
guidance during the late war and
his action as “savior of the franc,”
by impartial critics the stink
of Versailles must ever be at
tached to his name. It was Poin
care and Clemenceau who laid the
cornerstones of the house of greed
by their share in the construction
of the Versailles treaty. With the
“Big Four,” Wilson, Lloyd George,
Clemenceau, and Orlando, Ray
mond Poincare organized the sa
tiric peace treaty, a treaty that
was to bring no more peace than
the more recent Naval Limitation
pact brought naval limitation.
a career uipiomai
Naturally shrewd and cunning,
diplomat Poincare was unfortun
ately too short-sighted in the long
run to dissociate himself and his
brilliant talent from the forces of
national prejudice' recial hate,
political capital. And upon this
standard must the eventual eval
uation of Raymond Poincare as a
human being and “citizen of the
world” be based.
Misplaced humanitarianism re
cently featured the editorial col
umns of a neighboring metropoli
tan daily. Discerning critics might
have some quarrel, little approval
for the Portland Morning Oregon
ian’s S.P.C.A. views upon the pains
of Lazarus's I to V in the labora
tories of Dr. Robert E. Cornish,
famed "resuscitation” medico. The
conservative Oregonian decried the
physical sufferings that the dogs
underwent during the process of
electrocution and resuscitation,
and editorially implied that the
University of California and the
federal government would be wise
to put a stop to the funds that
supported such brutality.
A Singular Request
As non sequitur reply to the jibe,
comes resuscitarian Cornish’s ans
wer to humanitarian Oregonian.
Dr. Cornish has asked the govern
ors of Arizona, Colorado and Ne
vada for permission to attempt to
revive executed crimminals in the
interests of science and the ad
vancement of human learning.
Says unconscionable Dr. Cornish:
"Certain prisoners . . . suffer the
death penalty, and I feel that some
of these men might welcome an
opportunity to do a final good deed
for humanity and civilization in
this way, also to some extent miti
gating a terrible dishonor to their
once good names.” Silent as yet is
humanitarian Morning Oregonian.
When avowed communist George
Dimitroff was acquitted of his
share in the bombing of the Ger
man Reichstag last year, students
of the contemporary scene detected
a sop thrown out to communist
U.S.S.R. Alert Premiers Daladier
and Doumergue, and Foreign Mini
ster Barthou were not slow to re
taliate. As long as Germany re
mained under a Nezi form of gov
ernment France anticipated little
danger of a Russo-Teutonic agree
ment. But it was up to France to
snare the Russ’s affections before
a German change of government.
As a result last year dapper little
Edouard Herriot made several
hasty ‘‘good-will” trips to Moscow.
But before Russia would sign any
thing in the way of the offensive
defensive pact Paris wanted, she
must be voted into the League, and

Vocal Recital Next
Thursday at 8:15
Varied Program Features
Brahms, Faust, Modern
The second musical program of
the year will be that of Roy Bry
son, baritone and member of the
University music faculty, Thurs
day, October 18 at 8:15, to be held
in the school of music auditorium.
Mr. Bryson has given at least one
recital yearly for the past twelve
years, and this year he plans to
offer three.
Perhaps the outstanding group
on his program is the second which
consists of four numbers of a ser
ious nature by Brahms, written
just previous to his death. His first
group includes two early Italian
^elections and two modern, An
aria from the opera “Faust”
makes up the third, while the
fourth includes three modern
French nummbers and the famous
Russian folk song, “Volga Boat
man.” In the fifth are three rous
ing numbers by the modern Eng
lish composer, Michael Head.
Graduate School
Has 127 Students
Representing an increase of
about two and one half per cent
over last year, the graduate school
now has 127 memmbers, and there
is a possibility that a few more will
enroll later, according to Mrs.
Clara Fitch, secretary of the grad
uate division.
There are 17 candidates for the
doctor of philosophy degree, 49 for
the master of arts, and 26 known
as “non-degree” or “fifth year”
students. Mrs. Fitch notices a de
cided trend among business men
and women toward the improve

the study of certain courses merely
for their cultural and intrinsic
worth, not applied toward a de

Adult Education
Topic of Session
This morning is the beginning
of a three-day training session to

ers interested in the new statewide
campaign for adult education made
possible through funds provided by
the FERA.
Instructions numbering over half
a hundred will be present from
Lane, Benton, Crook, Deschutes,
Jefferson, Linn and Lincoln coun
ties. Teachers will be chosen from
this group to conduct the adult ed
ucation classes provided by the
emergency education program
which will be held during the win

Library Receives
Volumes of Braille
A gift from the library of con
gress is the form of three volumes
of braille was received by M. H.
Douglass, librarian. “The Common
Lot,” a novel by Herrick is the
name of the book and is to be used
by Miss Burgess is her American
novel class.
As is the case of most braille
books, they are transcribed into
more than one volume, the bulk
of the book requiring it.
The novel will be placed on the
shelves of the library in the braille
section which is located on the top
floor of the main library. There
are approximately 600 volumes in
this section at the present time.
All of the books are texts that are
used in classes of the University.
Under the supervision of the
state, there are seven blind stu
dents attending school.

Many Friends and Alumni Do
Honor to Oregon At Portland
Nearly 500 alumni of the Uni
versity, together with friends, and
fathers and mothers of students
packed the ballroom of the Mason
ic temple in Portland last Thurs
day evening on the occasion of the
58th anniversary of the founding
of the University of Oregon. Si
multaneously in 17 other centers
of the state and country alumni
gathered, all to honor the institu
tion’s founders and to discover
whether the early ideals of the
founders were being properly pre
served and furthered.
Principal speaker at the Port
land gathering was Dean Wayne
L. Morse of the Oregon law school,
who took as the basis for his talk
the threatening encroachments of
censorship on classroom freedom.
On this subject, he said in part:
“We must continue to keep our
University a democratic strong
hold wherein, unhampered by fear
and insecurity, scholars can bring
their best talents to the solution
of the perplexing problems of the
day; where students, in an envi
ronment of unemotional fact find
ing and theory testing, may devel
op critical analytical attitudes,
strong qualities of leadership and
a consecration to principles free
from dogma, prejudice, and parti
san bias.”
Dean Morse further said that if
the University is to retain its name
of a “university” in fact as well
as in name, the teaching- of sci
ence must be returned to the cur
riculum of the institution. He cit
ed the fact that the University has
lost prestige among educators and
other educational institutions by
the fact that it no longer offers
major work in science. Science
could be established again on the
campus with little, if any, addi
tional expense, he said, and with
out taking it away from any other
institution in Oregon.
Dean Morse’3 complete speech
appears elsewhere in this paper.
President C. V. Boyer, who was
also on the program declared that
it was peculiarly suitable that the
alumni should come together to
celebrate Founders’ day at a time
when democracy which founded
public education is threatened, and
when higher education, upon
which democracy depends, is also
threatened by the breakdown of
an economic system contemporan
eous with the establishment of de
mocracy. Dr. Boyer stated that
the faults of character and the
failure of leaders in the past to
assume responsibility can and must
be overcome by the universities.
Democracy, he said, depends upon
the soundness of the higher edu
cation which it offers its youth,
and jn order to obtain that sound
ness, standards must be high. “If
we issue diplomas, let them be the

Student Good-will University
Of Paris Nearly Completed
The most outstanding univer
sity enterprise ever created in the
history of education has just been
completed at the University of
Paris, France. Known as the Cite
Universitaire, it is the world’s
most significant gesture towards
international good-will and friend
ship among students. Situated on
the site of pre-war fortifications,
the highest point of land on the
left bank of the Seine and just at
the edge of the famous Latin quar
ter, a residential campus has been
created where 2,500 people of a
score of nationalities live and work
and play together. Facing one of
the famous parks of Paris and
endowed with extensive grounds
and athletic fields of its own, the
Cite (as it is commonly abbre
viated), is the modern and de luxe
continuation of the tradition of
seven centuries during which the
University of Paris has been the
world’s chief meeting place for
the intellectuals of all nations.
The United States house is out
standing among this group, for it
is one of the largest and finest of
the 19 national centers in the Cite.
It was erected in 1930 to house
American men and women pursu
ing serious study in Paris and pro
vides all the facilities of a residen
tial club at prices unmatched any
where on the continent. Among
the features of the United States
house may be included, a restau
rant, cafeteria style, a library,
single rooms, duplex studios for
artists and sound-proof practice
rooms for musicians.
Contact is constantly maintained
with the students of all the differ
ent national groups in the Cite,
