Congress Gets Message
WASHINGTON — Proposing ar
end to the “subterfuge’’ of “dis
guised subsidies,” President Roose
velt gave congress by special mes
sage today three reasons why he
thought this country should main
tain an adequate merchant ma
rine under an outright subsidy
Two congressional committees
promptly squared for action. First
reactions indicated sufficient sen
timent to carry his proposals for
ward. But with the crush of other
affairs in congress there appeared
little likelihood of immediate ac
The presidential message put di
rectly to congress the question “of
whether the United States should
have an adequate merchant ma
rine.” Then, sharply, he added
that if congress decided in the af
firmative “It can well afford hon
estly to call a subsidy by its right
Greece Still in Revolt
ATHENS — Government troops
won a slashing victory against reb
els in Macedonia today, driving
them back across the river Struma
after killing and capturing an un
known number.
Poorly armed, the rebels re
treated in terror under fire from
government machine guns, advices
from Macedonia said.
Bullets rained into the ranks of
the fugitives as they plunged into
the river and swam to the east
bank, near Bulgaria. There the
scattered forces rallied and took
up a new position.
Government success on the naval
front also was reported.
Election Bill Passed
SALEM — As the Oregon legis
lature late today completed pas
sage of the administration meas
ure putting to a vote of the people
the proposition to change the dates
of the primary election from May
to September, Governor Charles
H. Martin, with a special message,
dropped into the senate his modi
fied cabinet form of government.
With the introduction of this ma
jor piece of legislation on the 50tn
day of the session, sine die ad
journment by Saturday night be
came even more doubtful. The
senate spent all afternoon arguing
the primary election bill which al
ready passed the house. The bill
now goes to the governor for his
signature, and it will be placed on
the ballot at the first election.
Federal Court Hits AAA

gram as it affects milk producers

Anti-military Group
Starts Petition Drive
For Elective Course
Faculty Asked to Make
Recommendation to
State Board
Bruce Heads Work
Request Is Similar to One
Made Last Year
Anti-drill sentiment on the cam
pus crystallized and swung into
action yesterday as a dozen or
more petition-pushers enlisted sig
natures for a document asking the
faculty to recommend elective mil
itary training to the state board of
higher education.
The drive opened Friday night
with a meeting of the student com
mittee on military education. Wil
liam J. Bruce, graduate assistant
in social science, was named
chairman of the committee, which
has as its aim enrolling a majority
of the campus in a plea for op
tional drill.
Fireworks Missing
Fireworks which characterized
similar action last year were lack
ing- last night. The optionals re
ported a comparatviely small num
ber of students refusing to sign.
With two more days to work they
were optimistic.
Col. E. V. D. Murphy, head of
the military department, had no
thing to say. Upper division of
ficers, contrary to action of a year
ago, said they had no plan of
redress in mind. They will prob
ably meet unofficially today to
talk over the situation.
Matter to Be Referred
The matter will probably be re
ferred to a faculty committee, pos
sibly the military exemptions com
mittee, which now acts to hear
pleas of conscientious objectors
and students handicapped by too
much work.
A similar petition, though with
only 25 names, when laid before
the faculty last year was rejected
by the narrow margin of five
votes, the count being 36-31. Anti
drill leaders believe that with a
much larger number of petitioners
demanding the change this year a
favorable vote will be returned .

Emerald Has Just
One Week Before
Cramming Starts
Just one more week in the life
of the Emerald until it is revived
again next term.
Once each term rolls around a
week in which examinations seem
to take too prominent a part. So
the Emerald staff lets up their
work of supplying the campus stu
dents with daily news one week
before the final onslaught of ques
tions and answers descend.
So, if the paper isn’t on your
front porch, don’t scurry around
the shrubs in your bare feet search
ing for the lost newspaper. Don’t
blame your next door neighbor for
skillfully lifting your property while
you overslept. Don’t sulk and not
drink your hurried cup of coffee
just because the Emerald didn’t
appear in time for you to hastily
digest the headlines before you
dash for your 8 o’clock class.
So one and all, the news sleuths
are given a rest caused by mental
