Back to the Facts
COM ft of our confidence in the jotmmlisl ic
^ technique of the editors of tin- Morning j
Oregonian was restored yesterday morning
when the following editorial entitled “They
Are Academic Fees" corrected one of tin*
Oregonian’s errors cited in yesterday’s him
era Id editorial.
In correcting the statement that dot) Ore
gon students faced suspension for failure
to pay student activity fees the Oregonian
Through error which is hereby acknowl
edged—in the chagrin to which commission of
error sinks the erring—The Oregonian said
that student suspensions impended at the
I'nlverstty of Oregon because of tardiness in
paying student activity fees. It was student
academic fees that were Involved, not student j
The point was that it is wrong to make
student activity fees compulsory, because
there are many worthy students who cannot
afford to participate. That point is streng
thened by the fact that some 850 students
an- having difficulty in finding money w here
with to pay their essential academic fees.
When that is difficult, how much more diffi
cult is it lor them to raise a ■ ...Ulitinn.il live
dollars a term for extra-curricular diversions,
it is conceded, we say again, that Ihc
extra-curricular activities are worthy, hut
they should not lie made compulsory upon
struggling impecunious students.
One Man’s Op in ion
EWS comes over the wires Hint the national
' administration is planning to enlarge the
personnel of the OCC to iuchnle a quarter of a
jnillion more men.
In common with many another man on the
street, we have often wondered if all the motives
behind tiiis organization were so completely al
truistic as they seem. When the COO was first
organized there were a great number of theories
advanced ns to the ulterior motives of the ad
ministration. Prominent among these theories : i
the one which said the government w.t ■ coyly
introducing a project which would train hundreds
of thousands of young men in the discipline they
would encounter as regular army men The in
ference being that the government was mulling
its plans to put a vast army of men in training
to that in the. event of a war the ia\v material
would not be quite so raw.
B> Stivers Vernon
After viewing the training winch the c chaps
undergo, it would seem to us that such is not
necessarily the case. True, there is considerable
discipline but not quite the same sort that one
would expect In an army training camp. We can
not quite conceive of this motive as the primary
one in the minds of the government heads when
they organized the CCC.
What does strike us with considerable force
is that the democratic party is building for itself
a truly excellent chance of staying in power just
about as long as it likes—or as long as it con
tinues to have so many jobs at its command.
A press association estimates that there wiil
be 8500 jobs in the new expansion program which
might be termed political gifts: That certainly
does not seem like so very many. The assumption
would be that these 8500 votes for the democratic
administration a. .he next election would not cut
much ice. It was alf > mentioned that there would
be some 25,000 other jobs which would go to
competent men regardless of political affiliation.
We may be wrong but we personally fail to
see what difference it makes whether the jobs
are outright gifts or whether they are earned by
virtue of technical ability. It is a dead cinch that
mighty few of these job-holders are going to
vote for a national administration that does not
guarantee the continuance of those jobs.
So instead of 8500 votes at the next election,
there will be thirty-odd thousand for the present
administration. Add the families and immediate
friends of the job-holders and you can figure
nearly a hundred thousand more.
Then there are the CCC boys themselves.
These are not. all eligible to vote. Assume that
half of them are. Of the million men that will
have held CCC jobs by 1936 over half of them
will vote for the incumbency. Add their families
and their friends and you have another million
It mounts up and up and up. Indirectly, the
new expansion will affect several million votes
in the next election. We do not accuse the demo
cratic party of using the CCC for political pur
poses. That would be carrying it too far. But it
is to us a remarkable coincidence that such a
worthy and altruistic move would affect favorably
several million votes which the democrats are
going to need in 1936.
The Passing Show
PKOTCETION THROUGH FHAK
MEETING in Portland Wednesday, Methodist
ministers from Pa-cific Northwest churches
decided to undertake to arouse pubilc opinion in
their communities against the U. S. naval maneu
vers to be staged this year in the north Pacific.
The ministers fear that a great display of Ameri
can naval strength in those waters will be taken
as a threat and a challenge by Japan with war as
the probable result. The group set the expected
date for the war less IJjan two years away.
The first consequence of the ministers’ action
will, of course, be bitter editorials in two or three
Oregon papers calling the members of the group
everything short of communists. The moment
anybody starts scrutinizing standard practices
and official acts of his government in the cold
light of enlightened reason, some people always
jump up and shout, “Radical!” And to such folk
the word “radical” is written in red. They would
probably never recover from the shock if they
could ever realize that some of America’s best
radicals were named George Washington, Thomas
Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and Alexander
But -to get hack to ihc subject of this dis
cussion—arc the ministers shooting idealistic
bullets at an imaginary vulture? Is there ground
for believing that the maneuvers may stir war
fervor in Japan? In answer to both those ques
tions we’ll cite the curious effect of announce
ment of the annual Oregon national guard en
campment plans last year or the year before.
Word came that Japan had heard reports of troop
mobilization on the U. S. Pacific coast and had
seen in that mobilization a threat of war. Givfen
a trace of a sense of humor, any American citizen
would laugh at such a report. The Oregon national
guard ranks pretty high among American citi
zen forces, but the thought of a few inexperienced
regiments and batteries encamped on the Oregon
coast as a menace against Japan is ridiculous.
The Japanese reaction probably resulted from
inaccurate information, but the significant thing
is that willingness to believe was present in the
Japanese psychology. It makes little difference
whether there was any excuse for such belief or
not. Disastrous wars have resulted from mis
understandings more incredible than that about
national guard mobilization.
rue iron Die is mat a lew tacts uncieny mo
Japanese willingness to believe. For one tiling, tlie
American naval strength has been concentrated
in the Pacific of late and the defense of Hawaii
played a principal pari in its war games last year.
For another, the United States, as si government
and as a people, has stood out against Japan’s
operations on the Asiatic continent. And then
there was the immigration trouble which struck
a st vert' blow at the touchy Japanese pride.
Americans know none of these was intended as
an offensive blow at Japan, but just try to con
vince the nationalistic Japanese of that!
The proposed naval maneuvers would work
out problems involved in the defense of Alaska
and the north Pacific const til' the United States,
with the Hawaiian islands as one of the tower
corners of a great triangle of ocean. What po
tential enemy other than Japan could the maneu
ver be designed to prepare for?
To the list of facts printed above should have
been added the introduction of a $37S,699,4K8
army supply hill in congress and the presentation
of a $477,221,000 U. S. naval budget. .So far as
Japanese popular feeling is concerned, those sums
air already ns good as spent and the navy,
scheduled to play about in the north Pacific, is
already enlarged ami supplemented by a tre
mendous land force.
The pcuce-bv-pivpaiodnc.ss school would hold
that such a display of invincible st length would
scare some sense into Japan’s bellicose head, but
the theory doesn’t seem to work out in practice,
l'eur is probably the most prolific breeder of
war... it tlm naval maneuvers thoroughly frighten
O', r'.md Japanese people, thi. countr- had b"'
tci stand by for trouble.—Eugene Mcmmg Ncv •

Mr. Neuberger and myself have
been selected to represent the Stu

debate. We hope the facts pre
sented will serve to clear up points
of doubt and dispute in the minds
of mapy students.
We do not care who represents
the opposing side, and feel the
ASUO should be free to select
whom it wishes, to present its
case. We have heard that certain
alumni favor the ASUO’s side
rather strongly. It is amenable
with u.s, if they represent the op

purpose of this debate is to clear
up important problems, and both
sides should be free to select, those
