One Man's Opinion
E have, with great diligence, perused the
' ” Declaration of Independence, the Edict of
Nantes, the Epistles of Paul the apostle and the
words of Allah through his prophet Mohammed,
and we just can’t find anything in any of them
that says it's all right for an eleven ton truck
bearing cold-storage fish from Seattle to L. A,, to
use Thirteenth street as a part of the route to
Of course, we will admit- that we have not
yet got around to mulling through the imposing
list of ordinances which are filed away down at
the city hall. Thcr ■ may be some reference there
to the matter. Still it does look as though some
one of the great le ;al documents might have dis
cussed a probl ...1 v/hich is of such dimensions.
Mind you, we have no objections to a per
fectly self-respecting CCG truck perambulating
down the thoroughfare which divides our campus.
It provides an excellent opportunity for the kids
on the truck to make appropriate remarks or
inappropriate, depending on whether you are rid
ing the truck or watching it pass about the
softies milling around between classes. Likewise
it provides many a collegian with a thought, a
wistful dream that maybe someday he too, will
make thirty dollars a month by honest labor.
No, we don't object to the CCC trucks at all.
But by no stretch of our fertile imagination can
we feature what a fish truck wants to be nosing
around the campus for anyhow.
Or a wholesale truck hauling avocados from
Riverside. Or a lot of other trucks to whom a
college education would be about as useful as one
of our old socks. II doesn't make sense.
Much as it pains us, we admit that the small
towns of the San Joaquin valley in California
know a great deal more about handling the heavy
truck traffic than do the dads of our fair city.
If there is an ordinance here which prohibits such
traffic i* should be ressurected and made known.
In the south, heavy trucks or in many cases all
unnecessary commercial traffic is notified by a
neat sign at the city limits that it will do well to
follow the "truck route” through the little burg.
A big oil or mercantile truck on the main drag is
just wasting its fragance on the desert air as far
as the cop on the beat is concerned. The driver
or his company usually gets to ante into the city's
graft pot for his trouble.
The campus is not the only sufferer in this
respect. It only takes a. couple of these goliaths
of (lie highway to complete obstruct traffic on
Willamette street. And when one of those babies
make “dead man's turn” from Broadway onto
Willamette, it is a sight to behold. We can't
think of anything else but that crazy game of
crack tiie whip we used to play, when we see
a monstrous trailer make that curve.
That there is some sort of ordinance to regu
late heavy traffic on the city's business and res
idence streets, we do not doubt. .If there is, in
heaven’s name why isn't it. enforced?
We hate to lie a lone vocie crying out in the
wilderness but certainly, somewhere there must
be another holes gated soul who has nearly been
chased up a telephone pole by a l'ish truck. Please,
mister, won't you see your congressman about it?

The Passing Show
hi: yikw unil vi.ak.m:
Tin (High Hid ranks of publications men and
women yesterday morning ran a shiver of ap
prehension. The Pelican, grand old bird of the
campus and lirsl ranking collegiate humor publi
cation in the United States, is to have an “ad
visory" board appointed by the A.S.U.C. president
to review each issue of the magazine.
We view with alarm. By the same token, the
Monarch ol the College Duiles could lit1 given an
“advisory" board to peer over its editor's shoulder
and “advise" concerning his editorial opinion.
Another board could lie appointed to “advise” the
managing editor as to which news events should
he printed. Kven The Califot iliac could be given
a board to “advise" him concerning handling of
satire. We view with alarm.
Mow we are not saying that President Alden
Smith would do this. We arc not saying that any
A.S.U.C. president would do this. But a precedent
has been established, it this action remains ef
fective, that would open publications to the pos
sibility of CKNSOKSIUP
Advice is good. We seek it daily: the editor
ot the Pelican seeks it before each issue is pub
lished. But the editor of each publication should
seek it for himself: it should not be forced on him
b_\ an A.S.l apresident's advisory board.
It has long been the title that the editor of
cadi publication at the University is solely re
sponsible for his publication. If his conduct is not
satisfactory, he can be removed by the executive
committee, or censured by the president of the
university upon recommendation of the student
affairs committee Such censure can deny him
the right ot participation in student activities, or
tesult in his suspension or expulsion from the
Ail publications aie satisiied with this rule. If
it could be shown that an editor was guilty of
misconduct of his publication, and that the situa
tion warranted it. they would agree to his removal
trom his position. We believe that thi-- ruling is
sufficient to handle all eases.
Therefore we oppose any “advisory" board
ioi 1 he Pelican. Surely is , .ui Ik- seen that even
a board s() appointed c- .he present, without any
enforcement teeth, stands an excellent chance

Hull vs. Aatioiuilisni
SECRETARY OF STATE HULL
told senators on the agriculture
committee yesterday in plain words
that the present nationalistic pol
icy as evidenced by the upper
house is not only jeopardizing our
trade relations but is also causing
other nations to look with sus
picion at our every act.
Hull, one of the staunchest and
ablest of the administration’s min
isters. flayed in no unmeasured
j terms the economic and interna
. tional policy of the dictatorial few
both among economists and legis
lators. Among his statements:
“We see probably 40 per cent oi
the people of our land living at the
; poverty level and here we sit al
I lowing our economic policies to be
I dictated by a small minoiity. 1
I don’t question their patriotism, but

the bankruptcy of their leader
Secretary Hull further de
nounced the opportunist policy oI

when the subject of framing trade
agreements had been broached; he
j intimated that they had sought
] nothing but temporary business
j success at the expense of good
It is interesting to note that a
paragraph such as the one quoted
above would have been tantamount
to political heresy a half a dozen
years ago and would probably been
punished by a verbal burning at
the stake. Today it rates but mi
nor mention besides the affairs of
the unfortunate Hauptmann and
the vociferous Huey.
But although Secretary Hull sa
tirically refused to question the
patriotism of the “Grab-bag”
school of diplomats and legislators,
a profound distrust in the heirarch
ical system of government as em
bodied in capitalism is readily de
tected, a distrust that has too of
ten found substantiation in the
I The sweeping change that has
come over the country in the last
six or seven years may be sensed
with some degree of adequacy by
re-reading Secretary Hull’s pub
lished remarks and realizing at the
same moment the feeling of aver
sion that universally accompanied
the name “Socialist” only seven
| years ago.

national income, $297,000,000, for

by the various Japanese news agen
cies that trouble in China has been
| definitely settled may be discount
ed a great deal.
The tide of militarism iij Japan
has been very high for the past,

ity to declare tor not to declare
war, but still have engagements!
with any country in the world.
With the prospect of draining'
the treasury to such an extent,
however, the Japanese will either

j expense is wise or else they are
likely to put another faction in
We note with interest that any
time when some national or inter
national issue is to be decided by
Japan that the army engages in
some spectacular victory over the

An Oregon Man
Looks at Women
Editor, the Emerald:
I was very much shocked nay.
1 grieved upon reading our Emer
ald yesterday to observe an em
phatic headline over the women's
page asking pointedly, “What Ails
’ the Oregon Men?"
The answer, according to several
| girls i wa almost said young
ladies), is that Oregon men lack
brains, breeding, ogod taste, etc
specifically, and numerous other
things by intimation.
Since destiny has ordained that
we should be male, and .since the
same destiny has made the male
of the species very vain, our first
reaction is to defend the males with
the full power of the typewriter.
Along this line we should pursue
the tactics of a counter attack and
| ask why the girls who find the
most desirable men retiring, ab
i sorbed in their studies are never
around and about with any of
them. To this there’d be one ans
wer: that they don't iind it worth
; the time and trouble.
Then, I might ask, who's to
blame for the bad taste in makeup
I and dress or the synthetic sophisti
1 cation which the girls are in the
| habit, of affecting; the scarlet lips
! that remind one of a slash with a
i razor; the excessive powder which
j gives some girls the complexion
, of a pale ghost. And r might close
with the sweeping statement that
i an angel sent from heaven is no
more welcome than the occasional
girl who uses god taste in makeup
and dress, not to mention conversa
But alas! That same destiny has
i equipped me with a tendency to
j consider an argument from both
Hence my philosophy is as fol
lows; that the modern girl is a
very sensitive mechanism and that
she will respond favorably to con
siderate treatment, even as a kit
ten which is caught outside on a
cold, rainy day; that Oregon
women probably have good reasons
for their arguments, biased as they
appear to be; that every girl is
a princess in her own mind and
that she’s always looking around
for a Prince Charming, and that
the fellows who approach that ideal
are the fellows who will be branded
as men of good breeding, intelli
gence and consideration.
That these girls are romantic
ists and prefer such romantic types
as Don Juan, Casanova, and Beau
Brummel—with certain restric
tions of course, since after all they
really are charmingly unsophisti
cated when one comes to examine
Therefore I believe that I might
as well concede this argument to
the girls, for the plain and simple
reason that practically everything
men do in life is for the purpose
of making the women God bless
'em!- happy and contented. Let us
not make it necessary for them to
become accustomed to our brusque
and impatient ways. Rather let us
strive to match up with their
dreams, which make them the
lovable idealists which they are.

Asset to Vallee
By Dick Watkins
Emerald Feature Editor
Now that our Bandwagon con- *
test has been shelved for posterity, !
we can well turn to greener pas
tures ... In a recent interview,
Rudy Vallee said that he owes most (
of his success as a bandleader and <
entertainer, to the experiences and t
knowledge he received during his i
college career, both at the U. of c
Maine and at Yale . . . Vallee took r
a course that gave him a little of (
everything, but that the study of i
psychology had been the most val- j
liable to him. for it helped him in (
shaping his judgment of what to
play, and when to play it, and how
to play it . . . also aiding him in
his selection of tunes that looked
like successful songs, and in anal
yzing the crowds he plays to.
Vallee has been a top-notcher in
radio and music circles for nearly
seven years now, and is still going
strong, which is a feather in any
entertainer’s cap . . . Other lads
who have come out of colleges to
achieve fame and fortune waving
