VOLUME XXXVI UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1931 NUMBER 41 Resume of Today’s News By Associated Press -NOVEMBER 28 TURKEY DAY ALL-AMERICAN WASHINGTON—A 100-per cent American .Thanksgiving celebra tion, practiced with elaborate rit ual by the Iroquois Indians for centuries before the “first Thanks giving" of the pilgrims at Plym outh, Mass., has been discovered in ancient records by the Smithson ian institution. It was known as the “great feather dance,” a ceremony held yearly by the Indians at harvest time and accompanied by an elab orate Thanksgiving prayer to the “Master of Life.” “Whether the pilgrims were in directly influenced by an Iroquois tradition which came to them through the neighboring Algon quins, which would make Thanks giving a truly ancient American festival, can be only a matter of conjecture,” the Smithsonian says. F. D.

Thanks9 Thanks9 and Thanks For Practically Everything By FRED COLVIG rjpHANKSGIVING day, and by all rights we should drum some thing up for which to be thankful. All day we’ve wracked our skull's gray porridge for the wee-ist in spiring glimmer. Lord, if we only had Arthur Brisbane's flatulent skill—of course only for the day. Platitude for gratitude, and no one the wiser. There is a knack in writing Thanksgiving editorials, but there is no reason for keeping it a mys tery of our craft for it will per haps be years, and maybe never, ere it will again inspire. First we evoke that schoolboy’s image: Sober-faced group of Pilgrims in some rocky New England glen. Waves thrash against Plymouth Rock in the background. John Al den comes out of the brush, arrow through his hat, bearing turkey gobbler which he lays at Priscilla’s feet. Miles Standish stands stiffly by. Squanto and Massasoit slink in with a basket of popcorn. It is essential that austerity be the pre vailing note in order that the riot ous abundance of our generation, which will be pictures in the fol lowing scene, may be in startling contrast. But there’s the rub. Five years ago that was a dandy trick. Tur key on the Pilgrim board: turkey sandwich in every American lunch pail. Blamed effective. But today it somehow falls flat. Let's not be gruding with our gratitude though. Thank the Lord for Huey Long. Thanks for the grain and the Roman circus. And thanks for the patriotism that kept Smedley Butler from mounting Rosinante and becoming our man of destiny. And let's wind up with the rous ing bromide, which we’ll bet you all expected; thanks that the fire of the great scholarly quest still burns in the eyes of each and ev ery one of us (Tiny Tim), even though we don’t know but what we’ll go back to the farm for good next June.

ROMER Associated Press Foreign Staff LONDON, Nov. 28 — (API — Great Britain is watchful but not panicky over the European situa tion, including the rearmament of Germany, Stanley Baldwin, Lord President of the council, told the House of Commons today. His statement was in reply to an ap peal by Winston Churchill, conser vative, party leader, for the nation to put itself in a position of avia tion security. Churchill had asserted that Ger many’s speedy development of an air force threatened to overshadow Great Britain’s plans for dealing with the situation adequately. Declaring an investigation led him to the belief that Churchill’s figures on Germany’s rapid strides were considerably exaggerated, Baldwin asserted: “All I will say is that his ma jesty’s government is determined on no condition to accept any posi tion of inferiority with regard to whatever force may be raised in Germany in the future.” A new British policy in dealing with Germany—one of direct and frank contact regarding armament and other matters—has been in augurated on Britain’s initiative, Sir John Simon told the House of Commons tonight. The foreign secretary disclosed that in accord with the new policy the speech of Stanley Baldwin to day, in which he urged Germay to abandon her isolation and secrecy, bad been communicated to Chan cellor Hitler before it was deliv ered in the House of Commons. It was also communicated to the United States, France and Italy, he divulged. Sir John was concluding the de bate on national defense in which Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and others had discussed the European situation with par ticular reference to the arming of Germany.

UNDERDOG TO GET HELP WARM SPRINGS, Ga., Nov. 28. —(AP)—President Roosevelt has laid down a broad principle of gov ernment home construction for the fellow with a small pocketbook who cannot get private credit. This policy envisages a vast pro gram of federal building through out the nation in clearance of Slums and rural housing, but de tails remain to be worked out. Housing Co-op May Become Reality Soon Earl, Macduff Forward New Plan Inquiries Are Sent Study Rooms, Bed Rooms, And Kitchen Among; Facilities Plans for a cooperative housing system for students now cooking their own meals or working for their room and board are being pushed by Mrs. Alice Macduff, as sistant dean of women in charge of student housing, and Virgil Earl, dean of men. Over 200 bulletins have been sent out to students on the campus who are largely self-supporting, in an effort to gain some idea of the de sirability of such a plan. If enough students feel that such a housing proposition would be agreeable to them to make the venture worth while, plans will be immediately pushed forward. Answers already received show general approval of such a plan. Details Not Complete Although details of the operation have not as yet been entirely worked out, the plan is tentatively as follows: Part of Susan Camp bell hall would be turned over to the women for their use and an entirely new structure built for men. It is estimated that for about $6.00 a month rent, it would be pos sible to furnish everything neces sary for housekeeping except the individual’s food. Thi*, would in clude light, water, heat, laundry facilities and some type of refrig eration. Large Kitchen Planned Study rooms, bedrooms, and a large kitchen, equipped with indi vidual lockers, stoves or electric plates, and utensils would be pos sible. Cooperative housing has been under discussion on this campus for some time. In 1932, Richard Neuberger, then editor of the Em erald, formulated a plan for coop erative housing and cooking. Since that time the idea has grown until it now appears that something will acually be done. All students who have not yet received bulletins from the housing committee, but who are neverthe less, interested should get in im mediate touch with Mrs. Macduff. Any suggestions that may be of fered will be appreciated by the committee. Music Lectures Will Be Continued Friday Mme. Rose McGrew, professor of voice at the University school of music, will continue her lectures on Pucini’s La Boheme Friday, No vember 30. in the Osburn hotel at 10 o’clock.

These acts are characterized by their unusual quality of singable ness, a quality which the composer obtained only through his complete understanding of the mood of the book. The harmony and tone, ex cept in the discordant fourths of the third act, is equal to the most dilficult music of any master. Accompanying records will be played.

Students Rebel as Huey Uses Gag Rule ‘Presidential Ambitions’ Hit Snag Classrooms Empty Suspended Students May Be Reinstated, Says University Head BATON ROUGE, La., Nov. 28— (AP)—A strike of journalism stu dents at Louisiana State university in protest against “Kingfish rule' of the campus press formed anoth er snag today for Senator Huey P Long’s "youth movement.’ Classrooms were deserted at the journalism school as the student demanded freedom of the collegi ate press from the Long censor ship that has caused suspension oi the “ Reveille, ” undergraduate newspaper. Huey Calls "Youth” Recently the Kingfish, riding on the tide of the state dictatorship he set up through legislative en actment, said the time has come to desert the "old mossbacks” of politics and enlist the support of the youth of the land. He concentrated on youth en listment—many thought it was foi support of his presidential ambi tions—and headed football cara vans to L.S.U. games and ballyhoc exhibitions on the campus. Presses Stopped But a student contributed a let ter critical of Long to the college paper and Long had the “Reveille’ presses stopped, killed the lettei and invoked a faculty censorship on the paper. And today the Louisiana King fish was called upon not only tc halt the rebellious journalism stu dents but to back up the president of the university, Dr. James M Smith, in his suspension of 26 stu dents who protested the gag rule or else accept Smith's challenge tc “get a new president." Dr. Smith said the suspender students “may be reinstated ii they make the proper representa tion, but thus far they have nol been reinstated" Bonus Payments May Be Possible Under New Plans Proposed Program Is Said To Carry Threat of Tax Increase WASHING AON, Nov, 28—(AP) -Administration forces dangled payment-to-the-needy bonus com promise today before full payment advocates—a program believed by many legislators to make new taxes virtually inevitable. Chairman Harrison (D., Miss.), of the senate finance committee, fresh from a conference with Pres ident Roosevelt at Warm Springs, made known the proposal to stop the full bonus rush. He left little doubt that it would receive Mr. Roosevelt's approval. ‘‘If proponents of the bonu.i would agree,” he said, ‘‘that those ex-service men who are in need should be given immediate pay ment of their service certificates, I haven’t the slightest doubt we could get together and pass the legislation.’ One angle of the proposal at tracted immediate attention. The president, in apparently tentatively approving the plan, sees a chance of cutting the relief rolls by some thing approaching the amount paid to the veterans. SUPERVISOR ON WAV TO L. A LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28— (API —While a telegraphic appeal was on Its way to President Roosevelt from union leaders in the five day old street car strike, the nationa: relations board today ordered P. A Donoghue, west coast regional supervisor, to come here at once from Seattle in an effort to settle the strike. Ore^ n - St. Mary’s Teams Clash Today In San Francisco 7-y - r On Bench Co-captain Bob Parke leads the Webfoots' injury list, and he may not see action today when Calli son’s machine tangles with the St. Mary’s Gaels in San Francisco. Cliaco War Near End as Bolivian Government Falls Sorzana Assumes Rule as Paraguay Gains Ground BUENOS AIRES, Nov. 28.— (AP)—Overthrow of the Bolivian government today and operations of the Bolivian and Paraguayan armies in the Chaco Boreal tonight led neutral observers to express the opinion the Chaco war has en tered its decisive stage. Vice President Jose Luis Tejada Sorzana’s assumption of power caused jubilance in Paraguayan circles, which were unanimous in asserting the La Paz upheaval would count heavily against Boliv ia’s chances for ultimate success in the Chaco. Neutral observers, too, were agreed that the odds favored Para guay after the two and one-half years of bitter fighting which has cost upward of 80,000 casualties. The BuenoS Aires press inter preted Tejada’s assumption of pow er as a coup d’etat, and Paraguay ans here -asserted it was evidence of fundamental disagreement over Bolivian war policies which would insure Paraguayan victory. COTTON SLASH ASKED WASHINGTON, Nov. 28—(AP) —Secretary Wallace, indicating concern over the dwindling con sumption of cotton, today invited producers to reduce an additional five per cent in 1935 after order ing them to make the maximum slash possible—25 per cent. Governors’ Trophy Will Be at Stake St. Mary’s Favored Parke Not to Start Game; All Other Players In Condition Oregon’s football eleven will trot onto Kezar stadium field in San Francisco at 2:00 p. m. today for the sixth annual Thanksgiving day battle with St. Mary’s. At stake will be the Governors’ Trophy first awarded in 1929 by Governor Ju lius L. Meier of Oregon and the late Governor James Rolph of Cal ifornia. At the first meeting of the two teams, in 1929, the Galloping Gaels easily carried off the trophy with a smashing 31-6 victory over the Ducks. However, every St. Mary’s Oregon game since that year has' been won by a hair’s breadth. Last year Oregon defeated the Gaels for the first time by a surprising 13-7 upset. This year the Web foots again are entering the Tur key day game as the underdogs and again are just as determined to overturn the red and blue Mo ragans. Comparative scores of the two teams seem to throw a slight mar gin of victory toward St. Mary’s. Heading Coach Slip Madigan’s im pressive list of wins is the Gael victory over Washington State, runner-up in the Pacific confer ence. Not content with easing the skids under the Cougars, the Gaels also galloped unmercifully over the Fordham Rams and the California Bears. A 7-6 victory over their traditional rival, Santa Clara, two weeks ago completes the St. Mary’s affirmative. Two unexpected de feats, however, mar the non-con ference school’s seasonal record. “Little Nevada” boxed the Mor aga ears in a 9-7 upset and UCLA added injury to insult by blanking the Madiganmen 6-0. Oregon fared much better with UCLA, downing the Bruins 26-3, but her showing against weak Ida ho and Montana as well as her defeats from Washington and Southern California definitely gave her a lower rating. But the very fact that these defeats are rank ling in the Webfoot mind may build a fighting spirit capable of routing the Moraga Marauders. Ducks in Shape The team which Prink Callison will turn onto the southern field today represents the very best that Oregon has to offed. Excepting the loss of co-Captain Bob Parke, the Ducks will meet the Gaels at full strength.

NEWTON \ CRITIC (?) is most happy when he discovers a capable musician. This critic became happy as Edwina Anderson performed her number “Preludium” by Mac Dowell, on the student recital pro gram yesterday afternoon. The most pleasant thing to dis cover about her playing was the excellent continuity throughout the number. One could recognize the various phrases as parts of a single whole. So often a student rendition is a rather uncertain collection of unrelated parts from the stand points of expression and mood. This writer will be glad to hear Miss Anderson again. Kathryn Orme displayed this same characteristic, though it was not so definite in her case. The unity of her rendition was achieved by the smoothness with which she built up to the climax of her num ber and then eased off with what one might term a denoument, which led back to the original quiet passages. The number was Ballado in D Minor by Brahms. The other two who appeared yesterday. Sally Reed and Lucia Davis did numbers by Bach, this writer’s favorite composer. Miss Reed did a Chorale, and a Fantasy in C Minor. The Chorale is com posed in the religious style which characterizes so much of Bach’s music. Mis Reed brought forth that style and mood very well, though one might wish for more rf the old classical strictness and pre cision of technique. Bach is some how exacting in this line. Lucia Davis found, in the Pre lude and Fugue in C Minor, that the Prelude calls for a rather agile left hand. She brought out the various entries of the fugue theme well, but missed the truly powerful climax which a more free inter pretation might give to it.
