Frosli Edition /"V\T(’E again the frosh print the green issue of the Oregon Emerald, which in variably comes forth to greet the'skeptical eyes of the upperclassmen. Before il is razzed and thrust into the fire, may the yearlings say u word about their issue 1 In the past it has been the custom for freshmen to run amuck and to completely overhaul the Emerald, putting into practice all the brilliant ideas of the preceding months of Emerald work which they hope will revolutionize the journalism world. This year they have tried to put out an Emerald that is no different from any other issue. Their principal object has been to publish as smooth and as desirable a paper as 1 lt<* upperclassmen, who have been driven from the “shack” for the one issue. Keep the Navy at Home “IXfJIAT would the good citizens of these Pnited Slates of America think if the Japanese held their naval maneuvers off the coast of Oregon ? What if their airplanes soared to almost within sight of the Colum bia river jetty, only to return to their base on huge carriers a few hundred miles to the west? Just what would be the reaction? Ten to one. everyone in tire nation would rise in a unanimous protest at letting a rival nation maneuver so near our shores. Began!less of what the people of our country would think, the United States navy, with its scores of grim battleships and its hundreds of airplanes liangared on mam moth airplane carriers, is scheduled to begin fleet maneuvers on the Pacific, north and west of the Hawaiian possessions within the next few weeks. Japanese newspapers wilt undoubtedly run screaming headlines in special editions announcing 1o their citizenry the hostile gesture made by America in di recting its fleet to Asiatic waters to hold demonstrations. Why don't the militaristic powers that be direct our battle cruisers into the Atlantic to frolic off the shores of England? Why not semi the navy to splash around in the waters of the south Atlantic off the coast of Brazil, or into the south Pacific off the coast of Philo? Probably the people of these countries would never give it a second thought if our navy did this near tlmir shores. It is true that wJien the English fleet nears their pos session ol Bermuda, it is scarcely big enough news to rate the front pages of half a dozen metropolitan dailies in America. But let Ike Japanese parade their naval strength past the front door of the Hailed States! Of course. Ibis has never been attempted. Why the difference? Apparently the reason will remain in tho dark. Why is all the propaganda in this country directed to persuade the public to learn to hate the .Japanese instead of the English or the Kreneh? Why should government officials direct the navy to maneuver so perilously close to Japan.' Why scare the people of that nation into a wild hysteria which will plunge them into a feverish preparation for a war with America'! The college youth of America pause from iheir studies and wonder. Figures on Student Union 1m ue raid lias boon conducting a very 1 bought I ul ami praiseworthy campaign in behalf of a student union for the Uuiver silv campus. Tim freshmen do not pretend to liavo made the same careful study of the feasibility of the construction of such a building: as have the backers of the move meat. They have shown that vvtill a grant from the federal government and a TWA loan $400,00(1 could lie spent in a building pro gram for the University. This amount would be sultivient to erect our student union and ! to remodel the old library into a suitable j Jaw school. ImicIi student is required In the I state to pay a $.) lee “to he exclusively used ! tor the purpose of erecting, equipping, and furnishing or adding to existing buildings,'’ This fund w ill reach a total of sji4o7.SOO.lit) In Match 1, Ithlf. With this assured income it is possible to begiu immediate financing of the union. In addition to these funds there i is a “restricted “ gift of $;)(>,N'Jb.Sd that max be used onl.v for the student union, and nn restrioted “gift fund" of SIS.OOO that could he used for this purpose, making neurlx $50,000 available to apply to the building fund. We know that then' is a crying need for sueli a union. A recreational center xxitli iacilttics for meetings, dances, amt for all- 1 campus functions would xlo a great deal to pul Oregon oil the top as a I uiversitx'. The dream of a uew library and infirm ary lias materialized only through an un ceasing effort on the part of all. A student mi. . i iuo as possible. They have shown tile v a; , o let’s start. Shall Men Discard Trunks? | T TNI VKRSITY students were astounded by an extensive article in the magazine section of a metropolitan newspaper last Sunday which declared that men bathers would no longer be allowed to flit along the beach of a popular Atlantic coast resort, clad only in trunks. In the same article, it was revealed that officials governing the rules of the same beach had stamped their approval on the women bathers who appear this summer in scantier suits than ever before. Klaborate reasons for banning the sliirt ! less male bather from the beach included the fact that unsightly hair has always tended to grow upon man's chest and should not be forced upon the view of spectators. Let's hope the this new ruling on bath ing suits doesn I spread to the Pacific coast and to the banks of Oregon's millrace. Why should man hamper his swimming and water sports by wearing a speed-retarding gar ment above his waist? W ifli the adoption, several years ago, of trunks as the correct thing for mere men to wear while bathing, many conservative minded individuals frowned upon the style, declaring it was indecent. More and more numerously the trunks appeared, until to day, very few full-length swimming suits are seen worn by the I nivarsity man. Cer tainly. his aquatic activities would be re tarded by the return of “uppers” to bathing suits. Humor Column Needed JTOK the past several years, the editorial paye of the .Emerald has been graved with a sparkling humor column, largely composed of the numerous funny incidents which happen to doe and .Josephine College. I hose columns have served to brighten up the paper, providing an outstanding feature which the majority of the students followed daily. College students like their lighter moments, especially when the merriment is td the expense of their campus friends. This year, I wo such columns have come and gone, leaving the present Emerald with out a humor column, a feature which every real newspaper should have. I he staff of this freshman edition, there fore, takes this opportunity of urging the regular staff to lollow 1 he column of mirth found on this page today with a regular feature of the same type. A Wanderer Returns ^^RKGON is proud of Amos Burg I Cnee again the Cniversit.v’s own explorer lias returned to the campus to nar rate the most thrilling of his experiences to students and hundreds of interested peo ple of Eugene. A graduate of the school of journalism. Burg began his colorful trips to some of the most remote regions on the face id the earth. Sometimes his very life was threatened by the powers of nature. By the use of xuovies and slides which the roam ing explorer has taken. Burg is able to pre sent a most complete story in picture of his daring trips. Adding to the pictures is the personal touch addial to the program by first-hand descriptions id 1he scenes by Burg himself while the movies are being shown, lie appeared several months ago, prepara tory to beginning an extensive tour of the eastern part id' the country during w hich he showed his pictures and lectured to thous ands.. Now he has returned again to Eugene, giving students an opportunity to gain val uable information on a subject interesting to everyone. Oregon is proud of Amos Burg!

This announcement from Germ any comes as no surprise to the other countries of the world as Germany has already broken prac tically all of the pacts of the Ver sailles treaty. The other nations, however, can no longer afford to disregard the outward manifestations of viola tions of treaties, witness the dis regard of Japan to the League of Nations. This violation of the Versailles j treaty can mean only one thing- j a larger budget for the French, Russian and Italian armies. Italy Wary Italy, however will keep out of an squabble which comes up be cause she cannot afford to lose any of her man power and keep her status as a world power. The United States, England and all her allies and provinces, all of the South American countries, Turkey, and the rest of Asia would j most certainly keep out of any en J tangiements because of their i knowledge of what happened in the ! last war. No foreign power, however, will declare war on any other power ; without considering the matter j very closely. Japan needs to expand. So does Russia. So does Italy. And there is always some trouble in the Bal kan states. Trouble Brewing If Russia cannot regain her ports, if Italy canont find land for colonization, if Japan cannot find more room for expansion, and if Fiance and Germany cannot for get their difficulties and disputes, or at least settle them with some sort of plan, there is trouble brew ing which is sure to appear within j the next four years. No nation, however, will declare i war on the pretext upon which ! Germany declared war and which later became the concern of the world. This time the statesmen will think twice before they try to en gage their nation, and the people whom they are supposed to repre sent, in a conflict which is likely to be disastrous. The next war will be decided by the people—not the munitions makers, in spite of the fact that i some foreign correspondents for j newspapers have been influenced by the money paid them by large munitions concerns, and have, con 1 sequently, issued much propaganda to promote wars between countries.

In order to enter and explore the bays that run into the moun tains, “we were often forced to row, especially when cut of gaso line,” he said laughingly. Because it was difficult to carry enough gasoline in their reconstructed life boat, his next voyage, on which he plans to see the Melonesian islands, the Solomons, New Hebrides and New Guinea, will probably be made by different means. An audience of 5.000. all mem bers of the National Geographic society, which sends him on such expeditions, heard the same talk and witnessed the same pictures that Mr. Burg is to present here. The report was delivered in Con stitution hall at Washington. With the exception of one or two men, he has made more appearances be fore the society—four in five years —than any other persons. In commenting upon the expe dition the society calls it a major survey expedition of the year, comparing it with Rear-Admiral Richard E. Byrd’s South Pole ex pedition and William Beebe’s ex ploration of the ocean depths. Drawing upon such a wealth of personal experience, Mr. Burg is an interesting conversationalist, speaking in a quiet but eager tone. Exploration and adventure seem to have sharpened rather than dulled the boyish ambition which once led him to ship for Australia, for he compares a man’s attempt to see the world with ‘‘an ant traveling down the Rocky mountain chain.” A Dutch Lunch the best ever if you buy what it takes at PERLICH’S There is such a difference in eoM luncheon meats that you simply can’t afford to pass up quality.
