WASHINGTON — The supreme
court apparently was sharply di
vided tonight upon the constitu
tionality of legislation lying at the
very heart of the Roosevelt mone
tary program.
Inquires directed from the bench
at government counsel, some posed

of the law forbidding payments in

WASHINGTON —Business mien
today vigorously defended price
fixing and control at an NRA
meeting whose attendance recalled
the days of vcode making under
Hugh S. Johnson.
Approximately 2,000 crowded in
to the department of commerce
auditorium for the first of a series
of hearings expected to shape NRA
policy and legislation.
At the outset the business men
were told that, unless industry
could prove differently, the NRA
would remove most price control
from codes. S. Clay Williams, head
of NRA’s administrative board,
declared the recovery organization
would folow this course. Other of
ficials indicated distrust of price
control devices.
WASHINGTON—Backed by a
14 to 7 vote in its favor by the
^ senate foreign relations commit
tee, a resolution that would bring
the United States into the world
court under strictly prescribed con
ditions was started today toward a
long-sought senate decision.
The committe approved of
American adherence “with the
clear understanding” that the
court “shall not, over an objection
by the United States, entertain any
requests for an advisory opinion
touching any dispute or question
in which the United States has or
claims an interest.
WASHINGTON—An economic

Organizations Miss Goal
In Membership
All house presidents were con
tacted yesterday by the commit
tee in charge of obtaining sub
scriptions for student body mem
bership in an effort to obtain 109
per cent support in as many or
ganisations as possible, announced
Bill Russell, general chairman of
the drive, late last night.
He said that as yet no living or
ganizations had achieved 100 per
cent in student body membership,!
but that several had been reported
tc be nearing the quota. Last term
several houses went over the top
[ in the drive.
Cards were given the heads of
houses upon which students could
sign their intention of paying the
S5 fee as an installment on their
registration fee. Upon signing the
agreement, a student may ex
change it at the office of the grad
uate manager for a student body
card and will need to make no
cash payment, other than that of
the regular membership fee.
Late last evening, Joe Renner,
ASUO president, commended the
students for the fine support they
have given the student body by
purchasing membership cards. He
emphasized, however, that all stu
dents who have not already p# -
chased their tickets should do so
as soon as possible so as to give
the student body the needed back
ing. Renner also called attention
to the large amount of money that
could be saved by students if they
would purchase their tickets and
take part in the various activities

ernment has appointed him to
head the first planning conference
ever held in the Northwest in
Portland a year ago.
As he is now serving as chair
man of the continuing' northwest
planning commission operating un
der federal auspices, he is well
qualified to discuss his topic,
“Making Tomorrow Today.” His
subject deals with social planning
with particular reference to the
Pacific Northwest and specifically
with the plans for more adequate
utilization of natural resources,
better organization of the agen
cies for social welfare and the like.
Faculty in Commission

James A. Carrell, assistant in
the speech division, gave a thor
ough discussion before the Edison
P.T.A. yesterday afternoon on the
problems arising from speech de
fects in school children. He claims
that many times a student who has
a speech defect appears backward
in his class work, not because he
is lacking in native intelligence,
but because it makes him self-con

any possible jibes from his class

Reorganized Club
Holds Open House
For All Campus
Cosmopolitans to Receive
Students at Gerlinger
Tonight at 8:30
An open invitation has been ex
tended to the entire campus by
Cosmopolitan club to attend the
informal open house at 8:30 to
night in Gerlinger hall when the
club, reorganized at the close of
last term, will start off its year's
activities with a reception for stu
dents, faculty members and towns
people. The program is to include
a. presentation of folk songs, a
Russian dance number, readings,
greetings from University officials
and an introduction of student rep
resentatives of sixteen different
nationalities. Mrs. Alice B. Mac
duff, assistant dean of women,
Mrs. Lucy Perkins, curator of the
museum of art, President C. V.
Boyer, and Karl W. Onthank, dean
of personnel, will be guests of
George Root, president of the
group and general chairman of the
open house, stated last night that
the reception was strictly informal
and it is hoped that students will
feel free to come from wherever
they happen to be. “A more active
interest in international affairs
and a greater degree of friendship
among students of various nation
alities, is the Cosmopolitan club’s
purpose,” Root said.

Territory, Jan. 9—(API—A new
clash between Nazis and anti
Nazis, though quickly quailed by
alert police, served again today to
emphasize the tenseness gripping
the Saar as Sunday's plebiscite
drew nearer.
Overwhelming forces of police
and landjaeger (gendarmes) sent
in to rout the contending factions,
battling on Waterloo street with
sticks, fists and boots before the
r ot could get well under way.
A.S. 1.0. Membership Divides
Band; Reorganization Starts
J^UE to the old complication over
student body memberships the
University of Oregon band organi
zation has been changed. Many
good musicians are affiliated with
professional musical organizations
in and around Eugene and see no
particular reason for paying stu
dent fees to bring the benefits of
their professional talent to the
University. There are others who
are financially unable to join.
Under existing conditions, stu
dents are prohibited from playing
in ArS.U.O. concerts unless they
are members of the student body.
For this reason, it has been nec
essary to make a division of two
bands composed of student body
and non-student body members
rather than upon any basis of
playing ability.
From now on, the student body
band only will participate in con
certs and play at basketball games,
while the other band is having
three rehearsals a week to make
op for time which would be spent
in student body service.
The conducting band, a class in
augurated last term by John H.
St.ehn, conductor of the University
band, is showing marked progress.
There is a great deal of interest
being shown by campus musicians
who desire training with a group
of players who, in order to be eli
gible for membership, must be able
to play standard and classical se
lections at sight and during the
year must prepare and conduct at
least one concert score.
There are a large number of
new musicians out for band this
term and the student body band
has a large and complete instru
mentation. It is expected that the
two concerts to be given during
the fall term will be well worth
hearing. The first of these is set
for Sunday, February 17.

Violinist Opens A.S.U.O.
Series of Music for
Former Prices Set
Performance oil Saturday
First in Eugene
Jasehea Heifetz, one of the
world’s greatest violinists, will be
presented in his only concert in
Oregon at McArthur court Sat
urday’ night, January 19, as the
first of the Associated Students’
winter term music series. The
concert will start at 8:15 o'clock.
Student body members will be ad
mitted free to the event.
An even greater crowd than that
which heard Roland Hayes here
last year and the Don Cossack
| male chorus last fall is anticipated
I by the Associated Student officials,
who report an early demand for
seats. Advance mail orders are
now being received at the ASUO
office at McArthur court.
Ticket Sale Starts
The reserved seat sale will open
next Wednesday noon at McMor
ran and Washburne, the Univer
sity Co-op store, and at McArthur
court. Heifetz’ Eugene concert
will be presented at the same pop
ular prices charged for previous
concerts although the usual prices
on his present tour range from $2
up to $4.
The appearance of Heifetz in
Eugene, his first concert here, is
expected to be one of the high
lights of the many concerts pre
sented in the past at the Univer
sity. Roland Hayes and the Don
Cossack chorus now share the
honor of having drawn the larg
est crowds.
Top Prices Paid
Heifetz and Fritz Kreisler are
regarded as two of the greatest
violinists the world has known.
The present tour of Heifetz is com
manding top prices of $3 and $4
in San Francisco, Los Angeles,
Portland, and Seattle.
Heifetz has been playing the vio
lin since he was three years old.
Now, at the age of 34, he has 31
years of playing behind him. He
estimates that he has played a vio
lin for 52,000 hours during his life
That is the equivalent of playing
practically six years steadily, 24
j hours a day without break. The
I figure includes both the time he
j has spent practicing and in giving
Heifetz’ father bought him a vio
lin of quarter size when he was
three years old. From then on
throughout childhood he averaged
four hours a day practicing. His
lirst public appearance was made
at the age of five.
He has been successively an in
fant prodigy, a boy wonder, an
I adolescent genius. He is now a
, world name, literally so, for he
has four times circled the globe.
Heifetz is considered greater, if
possible, now than ever. His ex
traordinary technique, flawless in
tonation, impeccable musicianship
and golden tone are crowned by a
new warmth and beauty.

"Theme’ Contest
To Remain Open
Judges Accept Fete Ideas
From A.S.TJ.O. Members
To February 1
Not too late to enter the Junior
week-end “theme” contest, so out
with the pencils, turn loose the
imagination—and win a $15 prize
for the best theme submitted for
the 1935 canoe fete! The closing
date of the contest has been ex
tended to February 1, and entries
will be accepted from any student
on the campus who is a member of
the associated students.
All entries should be placed in
the box provided at the College
Side. Judges appointed by Ed Lab

the entries are W. F. G. Thacher,
Maude Kerns, Ottilie Seybolt, Vir
gil Earl, and Tom Stoddard,

But you’re not an artist? No
matter. The junior class is not
asking for artistic masterpieces.
There are no strict rules attached
to the contest. The only rules are
that the suggestions should be
written out, and may be illustrated
with sketches of possible floats,
lighting suggestions, and all other
requirements necessary for the
presentation of a canoe fete on the
mill race. There must be a central
theme, as for instance “Greek
Mythology," and suggestions as to
how that theme should be carried
out in representative floats.

League of Nations Secretary
Heralds Tenth Anniversary
(Editor’s note: The following
article reviewing the activities and
progress of the league of Nations
since its inception January 10,
1920, was written for the Associ
ated Press hy Joseph C. Avenol,
League secretary general, In con
nection with the fifteenth anniver
sary of the League’s founding.)
GENEVA, Jan. 9—1 welcome
the opportunity affored by the As
sociated Press to commemorate in
this statement the fifteenth anni
versary of the League of Nations.
Fifteen years, though a consid
erable period in the life of a human
being, is but a moment in the life
of nations. Nevertheless, begin
ning January 10, 1920, with but
23 members, the League of Nations
today comprises 60 states and en
joys the valued cooperation of cer
tain states which have never been
formal members.
Thus, as a sufficient degree of
universal cooperation and confi
dence has existed, the League in
spite of difficulties has made def
inite beginnings toward realization
of its four-fold objective in the in
ternational domain. This objective
is: peace, justice, security and co
While the League today is
emerging in strength from a period
of depression and anxiety which
has affected nearly all its mem
bers, its system of obligations and
undertakings is seen more clearly
than ever to be the ultimate law
of world order and the only prac
tical alternative to almost com
plete world anarchy.
War anywhere today is regarded
as a concern if not of equal con
cern to all nations.
Accordingly it is generally ac
cepted that the implements of war
must be controlled by international
agreement. And for the first time j
in history the principle ot inter-1
national supervision and inspect
ion of arms has been almost uni
versally recognized.
At the same time the collective
responsibilities for order and se
curity have in varying degree been
created to effect peaceful settle
ments and peaceful adjustments.
With such definite, if halting,
progress made in the first decade [
and a helf of the League’s exist
ence. it remains for governments
peoples and the press in coming
decades to carry them nearer to
fulfillment and thus widen that
area of international cooperation
which can make life everywhere
more dignified, more secure and
more fruitful.

Lul Question Up
An analagous suggestion sub
mited to the committee and deal
ing with the return of freshman
“lids” was shelved for further con
sideration, and it was recom
mended that, the freshman class
itself should be allowed to pass up
on the compulsory wearing of the
green identification “lid.”
Following is the resolution as
passed upon by the committee:
“WHEREAS, we the class of
1935, believe that it is the vital
part of any institution, such as the
University of Oregon, to have def
inite traditions and customs, and
whereas there has been a decided
laxity in enforcing these funda
mental traditions for the last three
years; therefore we recommend the
consideration and adoption of the
following proposals:
“1. That the traditions commit
tee and the traditions court be re
instated as of before Feb. 7, 1934,
except that meetings be held bi
monthly instead of weekly;
“2. And we recommend partic
ularly the folowing traditions for
“That there be no smoking on
the campus.
“That freshman and sophomores
may not wear cords; and that the
former should v/ear the customary
freshman pant's, and the latter,
“That no one shall walk on 'h'
Oregon seal.
“That there shall be no ‘pigging’
at athletic contests.
“That the tradition of hello wa'k
be revived.
