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
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
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
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
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
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

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
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

giving students an opportunity to gain val

With the announced air expan
sion of the German air forces hy ;
the second man of Germany, Min- ■
ister Goet ing, and with France’s
declaration of allegiance to Russia,,
it seems extremely likely that the
war predicted before 1940 will be
j between France, Italy, and Russia
j and Japan and Germany,
j The declaration from Germany
is in accordance with Reichsfuer
Hitler’s “big army” program, and
clashes somewhat with the German
minister of propaganda, Paul Goe
bels, who paid that Jews would
not be accepted on the same basis
in the recruiting stations as Ary
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
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.

bringing constant squalls and dark,
cloudy days,” Mr. Burg explained,
in listing some of the difficulties.
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.”
