Success oil the Ether
SUNDAY afternoon the ether waves car
ried another of the ASIJO students eon-,
certs when the University concert band was
broadcast over station KORK by the Km
erald of the Air.
The University of Oregon lias one of 1he
finest concert bauds on the coast. By many
musicians at other universities on the coast
it is rated the outstanding concert band ’u
It was with a great deal of apprehension
that 1 ho broadcast of this program was ar
ranged. The poor location of the microphone
for concert hand reception raised grave
fears for a suitable pickup ii the experts’
The result, however, was astonishing.
Many who listened in on the pwgram said
the excel lew.. the broadcast tritely rivaled
an NBC or CBS program. The finesse and
fine technique which Director John Steliii
has developed in Iris hand was brought to
the radio audience is almost as laudable and
excellent form as il came to those who at
tended 1 lie concert.
The Sunday broadcast, was a remarkable
success and il is hoped that these ASIA)
concerts will continue to be broadcast in the
future, thereby bringing the music of the
masters to many wiio cannot attend the con
certs in person.
Enjoying It Openly
IN years gone by. I lie I’ni varsity lias seem

natural advantages that of climate.
With the announcement by I1’. A. Cutii

that an open air theater will lie completed
and ready For use next fall, we are suddenly
awakened lo the reality of the many months
ofwann weather which we enjoy here at

never ventured decades ago. One season of

with an elevation of two feet. .Many campus
shrubs and plants have been replanted in

The utility of such an open theater is
indeed great. Hand concerts, afternoon teas,

in warm buildings, will lie presented in the

group of students led by Mr. Neuberger
of deliberately distorting the facts in a news
story which appeared in Saturday morning's

One Man’s Opinion
. stivers Vernnn
''T'HE active sponsorship of Senate bill 197
■*- proved to be a rather expensive business for
two local gentlemen. The two, Bruce Brundage
and A1 Cook, both local business men, received
the sad news Wednesday that their summer
homes on the McKenzie had been burned down.
The damage was presumageiy caused by itiner
ants who either with malice aforethought or
through criminal negligence set the blazes.
Nobody, at this writing, can say definitely
that these itinerants were or were not the direct,
cause of the blaze. The fact of responsibility may
never be established. “One Man" is not in a posi
tion to say or even insinuate that the fires were
set by this or that person or interest. All we can
do is to point out that both of these men were,
on Monday, members of a delegation which went
to Salem to pull for the passage of bill 197
which incidentally, would close the upper Mc
Kenzie to boat fishing.
To date there has been no person who would
step forward and claim the responsibility for op
posing this measure. There is plenty of opposi
tion, no one doubts that, for a, minute. But when
it comes to mentioning names other than in
rumors nobody seems to relish the honor.
For this reason, the public mind is very likely
to associate the two closely related fires with
these unknown parties. We admit to such a feel
ing. Tt. may seem strange to the student in a
state university, but there are in our own back
yard, feelings and animosities which border onto
those of a Kentucky fetid. Between certain ele
ments among the population of the McKenzie and
of Fugene, there is undeniable friction in no
small degree. The bank fishermen hate the boat
fishermen and vice versa; the conservationists
hate I he despoilers, etc. etc.
We do not propose in this column to devote
space to a further discussion of the merits of
the bills which are rivals in the state legislature.
It should be pretty clear to the observer just
where we stand personally.
But wouldn’t it be a hot one if a good hill-billy
feud would spring up over the sponsorship of
these two measures? By feud we mean just v/hat
the two fires would indicate violence! The ele
ments are all there. Since the river became a
fisherman’s paradise, these elements have been
at work and now we have them almost bursting
into flames literally- over the present proposed
What would be the result ? In the first place
a lot of useless bickering and probably a con
siderable sum charged up to damage and loss to
the participants. Second, the whole thing would
be the best publicity that ever struck Oregon.
No, we don't advocate a warlike display by the
rival camps. We considers such action would be
extremely foolish. However, if the hotheads of
the crowd should assume sway, every newspaper
on the coast would carry countless inches of
space about the McKenzie. And would the folks
from round about go for that! The McKenzie
would become a household word much like the
Kentucky hills. Ami a tourist would no more
think of coming to Oregon without seeing the
McKenzie than he would think of going away
without seeing Crater lake.
Silly, isn’t it? Yet from such combinations
spring the most beautiful publicity stories on
record. Oregon has long felt the crying need for
color. Well, if the idiots persist in coming to blows
over the issue, Oregon is likely to have plenty
of color. The only trouble is that it might be red.
The Passing Show
OlONATOR Staples .sort of took the wind out of
^ Dick Neuberger's sails when Dick was going
strong attacking compulsory military training
in the University. Staples asked him (Dick is a
fourth year student at the University) if he had
taken his two-year rot]Hired course in military.
Neuberger replied, "No, l went up and told them
1 wouldn't take it" At both the state institutions
conscientious objectors are released from lh"
compulsory drill. The state board of higher edu
cation went into the matter with great thorough
ness, and decided to continue the old policy,
though with exemptions for those with scruple"'
against war and military drill. If the youngsters
don t want to drill let them come to Willamette
where they can dance instead. Salem States

___ By Parks Hit-hooek_
A Modes! Proposal
|T is with nothing short of whole-,
■■ hearted approval that we view j
the passage of Senate bill 204,
authorizing the state board of
higher- education to collect $15 per i
year to finance student body enter- :
prises. This admirable piece of leg- 1
islation should have received the
unanimous support of the legisla
ture at its inception, and now that
that fearless body has shown its j
sincere interest in the welfare of
our institution by crushing the'
scurrilous and selfish interests that
combated passage, wre trust that
they will leave no stone unturned
until they have carried into effect
many other such beneficial deeds.
We are not ignorant, indeed,
that there have been sundry ob
jections on the grounds that there
are certain persons (for the most
part obscure and little known) who 1
are financially incapable of assum
ing the additional responsibility.
The stupidity of such an argument
canot but be immediately apparent:
for aside from the obviously self
centered interests of the persons
who dare to offer this idle critic
ism, the simplest dolt cannot but1
be aware that the University is I
no place for the poor and indigent; j
it should cater only to the upper j
classes, who by their financial in-1
dependence will reflect nothing but |
glory and honor to the University’s |
Long May She Wave!
We may indeed offer a silent |
prayer of thanks to the worthy i
solons who have (with their eyes
ever fixed upon the shining temple
of Truth and Justice) made this
valiant attempt to rid the Univer
sity of those of the Lower Classes
who stubbornly insist on taking
advantage of the educational op
portunities which are by rights
the inalienable heritage of the rul
ing class. The danger in which our
social structure would be placed if
the Vulgar and Common were al
lowed to avail themselves of our
advantages, is immediately appar
ent; such a piece of legislation as
Senate bill 204 has done much to
better the atmosphere of the Uni
versity and to protect our in
The Plan in a Nutshell
We trust that it will not be
presumptuous if we were to offer
(as the spokesman of the upper
milieu) a simple proposal for the
weeding out of economic undesir
ables from our University. After
protection of our youth from such
making the initial step toward the
sullying elements, should the state
senators stop now? NO! Additional
taxes should and MUST be added.
It is imperative that our legislators
should find other taxes! Students
could be made to pay for the
dances and social events which are
the backbone of collegiate life; a
subsidy might be levied for the
creation of a revolving fund to fi
nance delinquent fraternities; a
pension might be created for the
graduate manager; a. toll levied on
all campus walks; it would not be
difficult to tax students for the
construction and maintenance of a
campus dance hall with possible
bowling alleys and billiard tables
l>ual Purpose Served
i All these taxes (which could
j easily be arranged by due process
j of law) would serve a dual pur
; pose: first, to advance and pro
! mote that "social polish” which is
J the first requisite of university
; men and women, and secondly, to
! rid the University of the riff-raff
| from the lower social strata which
I infests and deadens the University
[ at preSent.
i Is it too great a rashness on our
part to suggest these measures to
the state legislature? We trust
not. It is our hope that in consider
ing them the law-makers will
credit our presumption rather to
the interests of seeking and estab
lishing the Truth than to any hope
of personal betterment. For we
j ourselves would be the first to pay
j such additional taxes, as we are
the first to applaud the passage of
Senate bill 204.

sent “away, way out into the coun

elder sisters at the University and
of peeking in through the base-1

is a picture in my mind of a grey
bearded man and a little cripple
bent-backed woman who limped
about with a crutch. A suite of
rooms on the sunny south side of
the basement and towered the east

the Dudleys and this they had
made an inviting cosy nest, in
striking contrast to the rest of the
basement which was left unfloored,
