'L_____ i UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 1935 VOLUME XXXVI NUMBER 92 Resume of the Day’s News By the Associated Press ----- APRIL, 10 ' F.D. Studies Policies WASHINGTON—Two vital pol icies — how to spend $4,000,000, 000 to create jobs and how to keep the United States out of any for eign wars—were under study to day by President Roosevelt. Back at his desk after a south ern vacation, the president sum moned in quick succession advisers who will help him in the adminis tration’s effort to put 3,500.000 idle to work and others on how to maintain strict neutrality in the event of armed conflict. Mr. Roosevelt told reporters that existing agencies would spend most of the $4,000,000,000, all of it before July, 1936, if possible, and ; that he hoped the program would reach an employment peak by No vember 15. Definite allocations to specific projects, however, will not be made for some time. Mexico Faces Strike MEXICO, D. F.—A nationwide general strike in sympathy with labor troubles in Puebla and Tam pico was voted tonight by the Gen eral Confederation of Workers and Peasants which claims more than 40,000 members. No date was set, but leaders of the organization said the strike would be called within a few days and without further notice unless labc difficulties in various arts of th- country were settled. Efforts were being made to end the strike in Puebla where three men were killed and 10 wounded in a clash with federal troops yes terday. Charging that 12 labor leaders were shot and killed in Las Bayas, workers’ organizations made plans for general protest meetings. Dust Storm Continues KANSAS CITY — Grimy wag ons and motor cars carried scores of families out of northwestern Oklahoma tonight in full flight from a seven state dust storm— among the most severe of a devas tating series. Crop and livestock damages, al ready piled high in uncounted mil lions, increased rapidly, principal ly in Kansas, Oklahoma, and.Colo rado. Parts of New Mexico, Iowa, Nebraska and Texas also were hit. Many schools and stores were closed in Colorado and Kansas. The business district at Scott City, Kas., was shut down for the third consecutive day. Silver Prices Rise WASHINGTON— President Roosevelt tonight increased the price the treasury will pay for newly mined silver from 64 1-2 cents to 71 cents, effective on pro duction dating from April 10. A presidential proclamation ac complished the rise in the price of the metal, an advance foreshad owed earlier in the day by Secre tary Morgenthau. The world price of the metal is near 64 1-2 cents and the secre tary told reporters that the treas ury would meet and increase above that point so far as newly mined domestic silver was concerned. The effect of the higher price will mean an additional outlay of more than $100,000,000 to the United States in fulfilling the pro visions of the silver purchase act. Hoover to Lead G.O.P. NEW YORK — Herbert Hoover, titular head of the Republican party, was reported authoritative ly tonight to be planning to wield actively—but from a position in the background—the weight of that title in shaping the G.O.P. for the 1936 campaign.

One group received what one of its members called a distinct im pression that Mr. Hoover does not now intend to seek the position.

H. Cornish, professor of busi ness administration at the Uni versity. “Over-production and Way Out” is the title of the article. In it, Dr. Romish defines overproduction, gives many examples of an over abundance of goods, traces the his torical attempts to limit produc tion, giving the results of each method, and discusses five ways out of over-production. Professor Cornish would lead the country out of overpro duction by reducing the waste and inefficiency in the ’ mar keting system; by expanding foreign trade; by government pur chase of undesirable farm lands and the conversion of them into forests, play grounds, and national parks; by a more equal distribu tion of national income; and by artificial restriction of production in some fields.

[ President Boyer’s Ballot Derides Deadloek Of Professors Controversy E n <1 s Leaders to Continue Work For Optional Training A concerted movement for op tional military training on the University of Oregon campus fell just short of its goal yesterday when Dr. C. V. Boyer, president of the University, broke a 42-42 fac ulty tie vote with the deciding bal lot. His vote defeated a resolu tion recommending to the state board of higher education that drill be made elective. The faculty voted without dis cussion or argument. Counters found the vote knotted and the de cision automatically fell to Dr. Boyer. His vote upheld the status quo. Dr. Boyer justified his vote by declaring that it was his personal conviction that compulsory mili tary training was not only desir able but very necessary. "I don’t think the end sought for, doing away with the barbarism of war, is helped by eliminating military training,” he said last night. Last year a similar move was defeated by a 36-31 vote. Anti drill leaders said last night that they are encouraged and will con tinue to work for optional ROTC. They are confident that within an other year compulsory military drill on the Oregon campus will have been broken. Had the vote been favorable, fi nal decision on whether or not the compulsory feature of military training here would be abolished wotdd have rested with the state board of higher education. The recommendation which the facidty rejected by such a narrow margin came as the result of pe titions signed by more than 500 students, as well as requests for optional training by numerous re ligious groups and clubs in the city.
