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
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
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.
As the former president planned
to leave tomorrow for his Palo
Alto home he left a somewhat di
vided opinion as to his own aspira
tions. however, among the more
than two score political leaders and
acquaintances who conferred with
One group received what one of
its members called a distinct im
pression that Mr. Hoover does not
now intend to seek the position.

The March issue of the Phi Kap

carries a scientific article by Dr.
N. H. Cornish, professor of busi
ness administration at the Uni
“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.

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
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
