JANUARY 19, 1935 NUMBER 55 Resume of the Day's News By Associated Press. JANUARY 18 EATTLE LINES DRAWN CHANGTEH, Human Province China—Battle lines drew taunt to day as Generalissimo Cniang Kai Shek made ready to throw the ful force of his armies against Com munist hordes knocking at thi doors of Szechwan province. A flood of government troop: poured ceaselessly through Chang tell, hardly pausing in their marct into the zone of war to the south west; as reports reached this city of an initial government victory at Tungjen, Kweichow province. JAPAN MUSTERS ARMY HSINKING. Manchoukuo — The might of the Japanese army in Manchoukou was mustered today to expel Chinese irregulars as sertedly raiding Jehol province. A communique issued at the headquarters of General Jiro Mi nami, Japanese ambassador to Manchoukuo and commander of Japanese military forces here, said the army was determined to move forcibly against troops commanded by Sung Che-Huan, Chinese gover nor of Chaliar. Insisting the Japanese forces, al ready stationed along the borders of Jehol in anticipation of the campaign, would not “cross the great wall,” the communique listed Chinese provocation obliging the Japanese to undertake the opera tions.

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 tonight in front of the College Side. All women interested in the class in refereeing, timing and scoring for women’s snorts meet in the gymnasium at 2 p. m. today. Westminster house Sunday eve ning forum will meet at 6:30 with Frank Evensen, leading discussion on “God and His Kingdom." Pre ceding this there will be a social half hour. Everyone invited. 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.

Berkowitz of Portland in the initial lecture of this year’s series Tuesday evening at 7 o’clock in Villard hall.

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 signs. 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.

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 crowded. 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 brary. 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 vened. Once money was forthcoming I for a new building. Unable to de cide between a library or a science building, a compromise was effect ed. Condon hall was built for sci ence, with one floor reserved for a library reserve and reading room. ‘‘Anyway,’’ Mi’. Douglass observed, ‘‘the money would not have been sufficient to build an adequate first unit for the kind of a library I wanted.” 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 was not yet furnished.

I). Points Way WASHINGTON, Jan, 18.—(AP) - Congress oiled its machinery to day to turn into law the presi dent’s old age pension-unemploy ment insurance program, despite some bickering and hints of a pos sible Democratic effort to liberalize the projected plans. President Roosevelt himself, at his regular press conference, point ed a way to the possibility of larg er old age pensions than the 30 a month suggested by already-draft ed legislation. While the govern ment could not give more than $15, he said, there was no reason why the state’s share could not be en larged. Quick Action Sought Hope was expressed by the chief executive that congress would act quickly so that 44 state legisla tures now in session or about to meet could enact their shares of the program.

The destinies ot Oregon and Ore gon State are unalterably Inter locked. A clean sweep by the two northern quintets would put Wash ington into the lead, whereas vic tories for both Oregon and Oregon State would leave the conference standings at status quo. However, if Oregon again were to win and Oregon State to lose, the lead then would indisputably go to the Web foots. MOSCOW, Idaho, Jan. IS—Bill Berg, steady and dependable Ore gon captain, snatched a victory out from under the nose of the hard-playing Vandals by sinking a long field shot in the last few seconds of play. The Gem Staters had the advant age of the tip-off during the first part of the game, but were un able to fathom the Oregon line of defense. Both fives played top speed ball and took every advant age the breaks offered. However, the Webfoots scored a much bet - ter precentage of their shots and led the Moscow squad, 17-11 at the end of the first half. During the second half the lead see-sawed back and forth between the two teams with breath taking changes of fortune. Oregon's three goal lead dwindled away until Idaho, led by the uncanny long shots of Wally Geraghty, swept into a 23 to 22 lead.
