Drive lo Learn Sentiment
Of War, Nationalism
Students of more than 100 Amer
ican colleges have been drawn in
to the nation wide peace poll con-!
ducted by the Literary Digest }
through the receipt of 300,000 bal-j
lots mailed by the magazine.
The Literary Digest, internation

on news events, printed the follow

Newspapers Start Drive
“College n e wspapers have
launched an editorial drive to in
sure large and representative re
turns. College editors have
thrashed out both sides of every
question included on the ballot.
Faculty members and undergrad
uate leaders have expressed opin
ions in articles and interviews in
the drive to stimulate discussion
on the poll.
“This is an effort to learn the
extent of the sentiment in Ameri
can colleges against jingoism,
against war as an instrument of
diplomacy, against arrogant na
tionalism. Long groping, wander
ing, warring “peace movements”
have begun to seek crystallization,

“In England, the League of Na
tions union is polling every house
hold on five questions designed to
crystallize the anti-war feeling in
to action. The ballots go to all
men and women over eighteen.
“The anti-war sentiment in the
United States has made most head
way in schools and colleges; it is
a part of the growing evidence
that the American college genera
tion has begun to think more and
speak more about current social
and economic trends here and in
the world at large.
Movement (Jets Opinions
“Everywhere, press and public
are becoming aware of the fact
that some sort of conscious move
ment is under way in American
colleges. The Literary Digest, in
cooperation with the Association
of College Editors, is attempting,
through the nation-wide College
Trace Poll, to determine the direc
tion of that movement as it fits
in with tiie world-wide movement
to wipe out war."
The Daily IUini, student news
paper of the University of Illinois,
explains the purpose of the Peace]
“The survey is not being con
ducted to secure expert opinion on]
world affairs. It is being made to
determine whether students think
and what they do think. The pri-l
mary purpose of the survey is to
stimulate student opinion on a sub
ject of real consideration today."
The five questions asked on the
poll ballot, are:
3. Do you believe that tire United
States could stay out of another

Honor Position; Moves

PORTLAND, Jan. 17—(API
Ram Wilderman, Portland at- j
torney, moved a notch higher in ^
his career as a barrister today
when he was admitted to prac- ,
tice in federal court.
Wilderman, former Portland
newspaperman, was presented
by Hugh L. Biggs, assistant
United States attorney, and wel
comed by Federal Judge James

developed to adapt themselves j
successfully to such a strenuous!
drive toward industrialization. ;
Brutal Measures Used
The confiscation of the Kulaks
property by the Communistic gov
ernment because they did not ap
prove of the methods of coopera
tive agriculture, and their exile to
the mines and forests of Russia, is
typical of the ruthless and brutal
measures which the government
has employed to carry out its pro
gram, Chambeihn declared. “Their
methods resemble closely wartime
measures and there is not a possi
bility for protest,” he explained.
Chamberlin pointed out that the
loss of lives was due both to the
government's policy of jurispru
dence by “Habeas Cadaverous”
rather than the English custom of
“Habeas Corpus,” and the high
mortality rate due to death from
“Who is greater, Stalin ot^ Hoo
ver?” a story in Russia goes.
Chamberlin said, “Well, the an

Stalin has taught the Russians not
to eat, and from all observances
Stalin has been the most success
The famine of 1932 and 1933
that involved a death toll of three
or four million the speaker attrib
uted to three causes:
1. The government exported
grain, sugar and other resources,
of which there was a need, to gain
foreign currency with which they
could further their streuous drive
for reorganization and industriali
zation by purchase of machinery
and other materials for production.
2. The transportation system
was overloaded with heavy capital
goods and proved inadequate to the
strain, and food stuffs were not
carried to areas of need but were
left to rot and perish.
3. The compulsory reorganiza
tion of agriculture, which forced
cooperative farming, led to a de
cline in the production of agricul
tural products. The slaughtering of
livestock by the dissatisfied peas
antry was also a salient feature. !
Chamberlin illustrated the atti-1
tilde and spirit of the people by
telling several anecdotes that Rus
sian people tell:
"What people eat the most?” the
question is asked and the answer
comes, "The Russian people, be
cause they can eat a week’s rations
in one day."
Another story is told of a woman
who was telling someone about her
family. "I have three sons,” she
said. "One is an engineer, another
a professor, and the third is in

“The Russian people are now \
getting a breathing space and
there is more manfacturing of
every day goods. The stringency
is being released and the people
are being encouraged to relax and
enjoy life," Chamberlin said.
"The trend tov.'aid moderation in
domestic and foreign affairs is be
coming more marked," he further
stated, "and the Russian revolution

Tell me, Mr. Chamberlin, is jour

"It is. but the methods are en
tirely foreign to our rules of jour

Kelirli to Attend
Of Cities League
Group Will Approve Bills
Written by Committee
Herman Kehrli, director of the
municipal research bureau of the
University, is leaving for Salem
this morning to attend a special
meeting of the League of Oregon
cities of which he is the executive
secretary. Representatives of cities
from all parts of the state are ex
pected to attend this meeting
which was called by the legislative
committee of the league.
The purpose of the meeting is to
approve bills already prepared by
the legislative committee before
they are offered to the legislature.
After the meeting, which will be
held in the chamber of commerce
building this morning at 10 o'clock,
the group will lunch with Governor
Charles H. Martin at the Marion
The bills which the legislative
committee has prepared and which
will be submitted to the league
membership for approval include:
Giving cities authority to pro
vide for collection of city liens by
tax collector in the same manner
taxes are collected.
Providing that no circulator of
initiative, referendum, or recall
petitions shall receive compensa
tion for securing names thereon.
To amend the Knox law to give
cities the right to superimpose
licenses and make other adjust

the way, promises to be a most
interesting center in the near fu
ture, and I want to be there, to see
history in the making."
Occasionally, Chamberlin man
ages to forget Russia and all her
problems for a while, and plays a
few sets of tennis, and is quite an
expert with the racquet. "I enjoy
climbing mountains, too,” the
famed journalist, author, and lec
turer told us, "and have climbed
the Caucauses many times.”
Chamberlin is American born—
in Brooklyn, New York, in 1897.
He became a newspaperman fol
lowing his graduation from Haver
ford college. Journalism naturally
"ran in his blood,” his father and
grandfather having been newspa
permen before him.
He married in 1920 —- Sonya

can citizen. His one daughter,

the ordinary current which alter
nates 60 1 imes a second by the use
of radio tubes to produce what is
known as a broadcast frequency.
At the same time the apparatus
changes t lie curve of the current
from a continuous one as it is in
the radio to a discontinuous curve.
This is done to prevent the instru
ment from digging holes in the tis
sue instead of making a clean cut
incision. The high frequency is nec
essary because an electric current
reuses a muscle reaction on the
make and break of the current. No
reaction occurs in the muscle after
a frequency of 60.000 is reached.
T i illustrate this, Mr. Spangler
held the collections from the ma
chine in His hands and turned on
I he current with reaction.
Mr. Spangler illustrated his lec
ture by making incisions in a
piece of meat. The meat was laid
upon a conducting plate which
acted as one connection, while his
dull cutting knives were applied
to the desired point of the incision
and the current was turned on. Al
though the knives were dull and
would not cut the meat when the
current was off, they passed
through it easily as tHo current ex
ploded the cells. The instruments
used by the demonstrator were a
curved dull knife used in making a
clean incision, a round hall for
stopping the flow of blood from
large vessels, and a hollow loop of
wire with which tissue was scooped
Although the demonstartion was
projected upon a screen, Mr.
Spangler repeated ins operation at
the requests of his audience so
that they could view it at closer
Now Group Organizing
Before the demonstration, action
was taken in regard to the forming
on this campus of a precedical or
ganization, similar to Asklepiads,
pre-medical honorary, except that
membership will be open to all pre
medical students. Herb Armertront
opened the discussion and sug
gested Max Carter as temporary
chairman. Georgia Barton told of
such organizations in other schools
and pointed out the possibilities of
such an organization In closing the
gap between the medical college
and the pre-medical student. Of
ficers will be elected and a consti
tution will be presented at the next
meeting which will be held Janu
ary 23, following a lecture by Dr.
Ross on the subject of high blood

Grides’ Winter Dance
Will Test Myth Tonight
The myth of the eccentric chand
eliers in the grand alumni hall of
Gerlinger, directly below the AWS
room, will be tested when Orides,
organization of unaffiliated women
on the campus, give their winter
semi-formal dance tonight in the
AWS room, which, 'rumor has it,
may cause the chandeliers to crash
to the floor by reason of the danc
ing over head.
Another significant feature of
this event is that the AWS room
has never before been the scene of
a dance, therefore those attending
will have the added thrill of danc
ing in untracked territory.
The dance, the Orides Orientale,
begins at 9, and all unaffiliated
women on the campus are invited
to attend. Patrons will be Dr. and
Mrs. SChwering, Mr. and Mrs.
Huffaker, Miss Janet Simth, and
Miss Elizabeth Scruggs. Tom Mc
Call’s orchestra will furnish music,

Chart on Display
On display in the geology labor-!
atory in the basement of Condon ]
hall is a recently finished colored i
chart entitled “Generalized Geo-1
logic Cross Section of the United j
States.” The chart was obtained;
in black and white outline from!
the United States Geologic Sur- \
vey. Stuart Mockford, art stu-!
dent, has just finished coloring the
chart so that its variouss sections j
ere readily discernible.
The geologic formation of the
United States is illustrated in
cross section by the diagram, which
covers a strip through the center
of the country from coast to coast.
The shape of the rock formations
across the country is shown by
lines on the chart ,and the nature
of the rock in the formation is
represented by a separate color
for each kind.
The difference between the geo
logic structure of the great plains
and the mountainous sections can
be easily seen on the chart, and
the Pacific coast mountains are
shown to be much more rugged
than those on the eastern coast.

“The meeting Monday night was
a humdinger,” was Dr. Philip A.
