Court Ruling
On Gold May
Come Monday
Study Shows Precedent
For Giving Verdict
Before Opinion
—The possibility of a supreme
court ruling in the gold cases on
Monday arose tonight as a study
of its record revealed precedent for
announcing a verdict and filing
the opinion later.
The court has had one consulta
tion on the case. Another will be
held tomorow if its regular sched
ule is followed. Should the ruling
not be issued Monday, it could not
be announced until February 4.
Court Act Quickly
The writing of an opinion is gen
eraly a time consuming task, es
pecially in a case of such import
ance. Precedents and other legal
istic considerations usually are ex
haustively discussed.
The practice of the court is to
expedite cases of great importance.
During argument on the gold cases
last week it left no doubt that it
realizes the importance of the de
cision it is about to make and its
profound influence upon the whole
monetary and financial structure
of the nation. »
Harriman Case Precedent
Precedent for announcing the
ruling and then writing the opinion
goes back to 1905 and a case in
which E. H. Harriman brought
suit against the Northern Securi
ties company involving stock
transactions in the Northern Pa
cific and Great Northern Railroads.
The case was argued on Wed
nesday and Thursday, March 1 and
2, 1905. On Friday the court heard
arguments in other cases and on
Saturday attended the inaugura
tion of President Theodore Rose
velt and held a conference.
On Monday, March 6, the regular
opinion day, the court issued an
order announcing it had affirmed
the decision of the lower court add
ing “opinions to be filed hereafter.”
On April 3, almost a month later,
Chief Justice Fuller filed the opin
ion of the court.
Campus Calendar
Kwamas will meet at 7:30 p. m

Li be Space
Has Favor
Of Officials
Committee Unanimously
Approves Location of
New Building
Site Considered Central for
The library committee yesterday
unanimously passed a motion
| which stated, “We re-affirm our
approval of the site at the south
end of the new quadrangle as pre
viously recommended by this com
mittee and the architect and ap
proved by the building committee
of the board at its meeting Octo
ber 18, 1933."
The reasons for favoring the
space at the head of the new
quadrangle as the site for the new
library building, as given by the
committee, are:
1. It is central for future aca
demic activities of the campus, as
presumably the next recitation
buildings will be grouped between
13th and ISth strets east of Kin
j caid and west of University street.
It seems likely that the space east
of University street will be devoted
to non-academic interests such as
auditorium, dormitories, recrea
tional opportunities, infirmary, etc.
2. It provides necessary space for
the enlargement and expansion as
growth of the University should re
quire it.
3. It is quite central for living
organizations. The largest use of
the library is during the evening
hours and the proposed location is
easily accessible to most of the stu
dents in dormitories, fraternities,
and sororities.
4. It is a commanding location
worthy of a building the size and
importance of a library building,
and instead of standing as a build
ing apart from and unrelated to
others, it contributes towards the
completion of the quadrangle.
5. The site has already been ap
proved by the building committee
of the hoard of higher education.
6. Preliminary plans for the
building have been based on that
location and to make a change
would delay building operations.
7. It is removed from noisv
thoroughfares, hut is readily ac
cessible and with a generous
amount of narking space available.
New Site Given
The proposed library site is
south and west of the art museum
and will complete the quadrangle
of which Commerce, Oregon, Con
don and the art museum buildings
compose. All this property now be
longs to the University.
The original plan, which was
made years ago, was to have the
librarlv built opposite the art mu
seum. Because of inadequate space
this site was given up.

was for the purpose of taking the

Rare Chinese Table Cover
Always seeking the pearl of
great price, the golden imperial
dragon of China stretches out its
five-clawed foot toward this long
sought jewel of immortality, which
is never quite within its reach—
this symbolic scene constitutes the
center design of the rare old table
cover which is on display in the
Chinese throne room of the Mur
ray Warner oriental art museum.
Used in the royal palace at Pe
king during the M a n c h u
period, the table cover is carried
out with symbolical designs in the
royal color. Hand-woven satin in
imperial yellow- forms the back
ground. with the various designs
embroidered in shades of blue and
gold. In the wreath encircling the
center dragon the down from the
breast of a peacock has been used
in place of embroidery thread.
Days of patient labor were required
to thread each piece of the down
and to make it into intricate de
Symbols relating- to good fortune
and happiness are worked into the
general pattern. Enclosing the
golden five-clawed dragon, which
is always indicative of the roval
Manchu family, is a wreath with
eight Buddhist symbolss woven in
to it. These illustrate things well
known to the Chinese people such
as the lotus blossom, the wheel of
fate, the conch shell, and the end
less knot.
On each of the four sides of the
table cover a mountain is depicted.
The Chinese worship the mountains
as the breakers of clouds, which in
turn cause rain to fall, making the
rice fields thrive and the people
prosper. A rainbow design, which
connects heaven with earth, ac
cording to the Chinese conception,
and the waves of the sea, repre-!
senting the waves of eternity, com- [
pose the border of the design.
Symbolizing happiness, a wreath
of bats completes the pattern.

Douglass Finds Fulfillment
Of Long Vision in Library
Few people know the long hours
of planning and the many years of
work that were expended before a
new library could come to the Ore
gon campus. The library, a quar
ter century ago, had only 15,000
volumes. Now it has 255,000. Then
it took only one floor. Now, with
three floors and a large wing for
a stackroom, it is extremely over
One thing alone has remained
constant. Mr. M. IT. Douglass, li
brarian, watching it grow, and vis
ualizing the library building of the
future, was always there. He is
one happy man today, for his
dream has come true.
For 25 years he has visioned a
library building like the one which
will soon spring into being on the
Oregon campus. It was not long
after he came to Oregon in 1908
that Dr. Douglass began to dream
of a large, beautiful, adequate li
As the news of the final suc
cess of his plan came he was as
surprised as anyone. Disappoint
ments and obstacles had bobbed
up so often, he said, that he had
no longer dared even hope for it.
Like a man realizing the impossi
ble, he hardly knew how to receive
the news.
Several times it seemed that Mr.
Douglass’ dream of a new building
would be realized, but at the last
; moment something always inter

‘‘Anyway,’’ Mi’. Douglass observed,
‘‘the money would not have been
sufficient to build an adequate first

False hopes were again raised
when Representative Allen Eaton,
’12. introduced a bill in the state
legislature asking for $175,000 for
a library and museum. The bill
passed but was later defeated by
the referendum.
A gain in 1927 the legislature ap
propriated money for a library,
this time $375,000. The bill was ve
toed by Governor Patterson.
Not until 1935 was Mr. Douglass
and the other men who had worked
so faithfully, to realize the hopes
of 25 years.
Mr. Douglass himself came to
Oregon in October, 1908, from
Grinnell. Iowa, where he had spent
nine years in and out of college.
At that time the “old libe” had
been occupied less than a year. It
