VOLUME XXXVI UNIVERSITY OP OREGON, EUGENE. THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 1935 \ NUMBER 43 - Resume of Today’s News By Associated Press JANUARY 9 GOLD LAW QUESTIONED 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 with emphasis, reveal conservative members questioning the validity of the law forbidding payments in gold, despite contraetural obliga tions. 1 PRICE-FIXING DEFENDED 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. APPROVES WORLD COURT 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. F.D. HAS ECONOMIC PROGRAM WASHINGTON—An economic security program designed to help the states take care of the million and a half “unemployables” will be finished within the next five days by President Roosevelt. The chief executive said today he would receive from Secretary Perkins tomorrow the recommend ations of his cabinet committee covering the program. Committee Meets . With Presidents On A.S.U.O. Drive Organizations Miss Goal In Membership Campaign 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 offered.

Since 1999 he has served as associate editor of the Oregon Journal and has written editorials and special articles for that paper and for various maga zines. Dana Hoads Conference Recently Dana has been a lead ing figure in movements looking toward social planning. The gov 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 The address will be of particular interest to University people since a number of members of the Uni versity faculty are members of this commission, among them Dr. P. 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 scious and extremely sensitive to any possible jibes from his class mates.

POLICE STOP NAZIS SAARBRUECKEN, Sarr Basin 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.

Series of Music for Winter 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 concerts. 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.

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 operation. 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. ui msi year. accoramg 10 joe nen ner, student body president. Its members will deal with offenders against the codified traditions, and mete out punishments. 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 enforcement: “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, moleskins. “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. “That seniors cnlv be permitted to sit on the senior bench “That no freshman be allowed to wear a tuxedo. “That the Oregon pledge song shall be sung preceding every as sembly. “Respertivelv submitted bv the ■junior class commitee of investi gation.” Jcmes Hla'.S A1 Neilson Cosgrove La Barre Bill Sloath Contracts Approved The executive council also ap proved contracts for the leftin^ o' professional supn'ies and work frv the Oregann for 1935.
