Kingsford-Smith Donn
SYDNEY, Australia i Wednes
day )—Sir Charles Kingsford
Smith. flying a special jubilee mail
from Sydney to Wellington, New
Zealand, radioed today, "Afraid
I'm in sea, old man, center motor
gone now.”
This message came after the
flier, with Navigator Bill Taylor
and Wireless Operator Stannard,
had flashed an SOS that he had
lost the propellor of one engine
4 and that another engine was splut
tering.
Encountering high winds over
the stormy Tasman sea, they ra
dioed that they had apparently
emerged from danger and were
flying back to Syned with two mo
tors working when the final mes
sage came.
Admiral Kato Protests
SHIMONOSEKI, Japan — The
United States navy’s maneuvers in
the northeast Pacific are "like
drawing a sword before a neigh
bor’s house,” Admiral Kanji Kato,
former chief of the Japanese naval
general staff asserted today.
Traveling through Kyushu on an
inspection tour, the admiral said,
"The United State's navy's maneu
vers approach within 2,000 kilome
ters or ten hours airplane flight of
^ Japanese territory.
"If Japan maneuvered that
close to American shores it would
greatly agitate American opinion.
We Japanese, however, are remain
ing calm.”
Kato is a member of the supreme
war council and a leader of the
navy faction which dictated de
nunciation of the Washington
treaty.
Senate Backs Farley
WASHINGTON — Overriding
shouted charges that Postmaster
General Farley was guilty of mis
conduct, senate Democrats joined
almost to a man today in striking
down by a 3 to 1 vote a demand by
Senator Long (D-La) for an in
vestigation of the cabinet officer.
Waving his arms and talking so
fast and loud that frequently he
ran out of breath, Senator Long
prefaced the vote by unfolding
more affidavits accusing Postmas
ter Farley of "manipulating” gov
ernment contracts on the New
York courthouse and postoffice
annex.
In turn, the Louisianan was
roundly assailfed. Democratic stal
warts charged him with being mo
tivated solely by “hatred” for the
postmaster general and chairman
of the Democratic national com
mittee. And the vote, dividing al
most strictly along party lines,
turned down the investigative res
olution by 62 to 20.
Italy Warns Europe ,
ROME — Benito Mussolini, de
claring Italy "ready for any even
tuality,” today warned other na- i
tions to keep hands off the quarrel
with Eethiopia.
No one except Italy, he said in
an impromptu speech to the senate,
"can be the judge in this most
delicate matter.”
Denying Great Britain and
France had taken diplomatic ac
tion to prevent Italo-Ethiopian
conflict, the Fascist chieftain said

k Little Art Gallery Will Show
Request Exhibit By McCosh
The paintings of David J. Me
Cosh, instructor in drawing and
painting, which were on display
for a short time in April, are again
being shown in the Little Art Gal
lery of the school of architecture
and allied arts, because of the
many requests from faculty, stu
dents, and townspeople. The ex
hibit will be until May 26.
Oil, tempera, water color, or
opaque water color are the three
mediums used in the paintings.
Vivid, live colors and a variety of
subject matter characterize the ex
hibit. Many of the scenes are of
the Willamette valley and a few
i>' of the more recent paintings are
of landscapes bordering the north
ern part of the campus.
The artist has taken for his sub
ject in almost every case simple,
every day scenes and uninteresting
places, bringing out their real
beauty through colors, and making
each picture possess the quality of
the subject it represents and the
quality of its medium of expres
sion. The water colors are the
most vibrant and brilliant, while
the tempera are more delicate in
their subtle color and value re
lationship’s, and the oils have
more solid color and more com
plete organization of form. A few
of the paintings in the display
are: “Joe’s Place,” "Red Building,” t
"Yellow Truck,” “The Foreman,'^
"Silver Dish,” and "Interior.”

Whole City in Chain Letter *Cold Rush? That Flops
The chain letter craze sweeping the country reached proportions of a “gold rush” in Springfield,
Mo., where crowds, of which the above is typical, stampeded to join in more than a dozen schemes that
flourished in the city, with all classes of society participating. Stenographers and notaries are shown
typing S2, $3, and $5 letters for the clamoring throng. In half a day more than $18,000 changed hands.
Then the bottom fell out of the market with many “holding the bag.”

Letter Craze Has
Post Office Men
Hopping Around
WASHINGTON, May 14.—(AP)
—This “chain letter" business has
post office department officials
hopping- around like frogs’ legs in
a sizzling skillet.
It figuratively burns them up to
be in the equivocal position of turn
ing cold water on the “dime" letter
craze which has boosted their bus
iness.
But solicitor Karl A. Crowley
ruled it beyond the legal pale, so
the harried officials, in the lan
guage of Roy M. North, deputy
assistant, in charge of stamp sales,
hope the “fantastic fad, like that
of a popular tune will pass, and
pass quickly.’
Warily conceding that since the
chain letter craze stuck Denver a
few weeks ago requests for bigger
stamp supplies have been received.
North only shook his head when
asked to say how much additional
revenue was pouring in.
But over at the bureau of en
graving, it was said the stamp
machines were whirling to keep up
with the demand.
“The latest chain letter I’ve
heard about,” North told news
men, “is where the receiver is
ordered to take a revolver and
shoot the man at the top of the
list. I wouldn’t mind that craze;
it might stop this one.”

Faculty Writers
List Publications
Faculty members who have had
writings published since January
1, 1933 have been asked to notify
the library in a recent announce
ment issued by M. H. Douglass,
head librarian.
Mr. Douglass asks also that
faculty members who have not
previously filed a complete list of
their published writings with the
library do so.
The work is being done to bring
the library records up to date. The
records, it is believed, are fairly
complete for the time previous to
1933, except for those who have
come to the University since that
time.

SCHOOL OF LAW.
By Arthur Clark, president.
COMPLAINT
In the Intramural Circuit for the
State of Oregon, University of
Oregon, campus.
1 Gentlemen of the Law School,
! plaintiffs, vs. Business Ad Majors,
defendants.
Comes now the plaintiffs and for
cause of complaint allege:
I
That on or about the 22nd day
of April, A. D. 1934, the defen
dants herein received an ill de
served victory over the plaintiffs
in a game of softball played upon
the field adjoining and abutting
Hayward field off of 15th street,
and departed therefrom emitting
loud raucous noises and catcalls
directed toward disparaging the
characters and athletic ability""of
the gentlemen of the law school,
When in fact said empty victory
turned upon a misfortune in the
5th inning when the law school
twirler became over-zealous at the
consistency with which he was
striking out business ad players,
and threw his arm away.
II
And further it is alleged that
even after the aforesaid misfortune
of the 5th inning, the law school
filled the bases in a rally in both
the 6th and 7th innings that would
have netted an easy victory hac
not the business ad majors will
fully and fraudulently coerced th<
umpire by threats of personal vio
lence into handing the game tt
them unearned.
. Ill
And further, the business ad
team on the day of the game afore
said was composed in major part
of subsidized professional ball
players, which unfair advantage
was well known to the defendants
but unknown to the plaintiffs.
Wherefore, and as direct conse
quence whereof, the plaintiffs were
deprived of a deserved victory and
have suffered severe loss of pride
and reputation, together with ex
treme pain and mental anguish.
And for a further and separate
cause of action it is alleged; that
from and continuously ever since
the 22nd day of April, A. D. 1934,
the defendants have displayed rude
and unseeming conduct toward the
plaintiffs in the following particu
lars:
I.
The defendants have been guilty
of encroaching upon the sanctity
of the law school curb, and have
neglected thereon to show a proper
respect to their superiors; and
further that they have been guilty
of cluttering up the law school
curb with one-quarter inch snipes
when it is common knowledge that
i the gentlemen of the law school
never smoke a cigarette down
shorter than one and one-half inch
es, which gives the impression that
the lawyers are hard up and irre
sponsible.
II.
And further, from the 22nd day
of April aforesaid and continuous
ly ever since the business ad ma
jors have strutted and puffed out
their normally concave chests, and
hurled pusillanimous taunts at the
aforesaid gentlemen of the law
school, plaintiffs herein, as they
pass in and out of the law school
building, which conduct on the part
of the defendants has been a source
of great annoyance and anxiety
on the part of the plaintiffs and
has occasioned additional mental
suffering.
Wherefore the plaintiffs demand
judgment that the defendants be
adjudged to be sissies, and that
their pitiful little school be rated
accordingly, and that the plaintiffs
be adjudged to be the rarest, their
school the merriest; and that they
be declared to be the victors, and
that they be restored to their posi
tion of pre-eminence as regards
their lowly rivals.

Oregon’s Sociology Majors
Given Preference for Jobs
The University of Oregon de
partment of sociology has recent
ly been gaining national attention
through the placement of all of
its students in the last few years
who have received either M.A. or
M.S. degrees, it has been revealed
by members of the department.
Oregon students in sociology
have had fellowships, scholarships,
and other responsible positions of
fered to them, in preference to
students from large eastern col
leges—one factor which is making
eastern educators ‘‘sit up and take
notice” of the University of Ore
gon, faculty members point out.
Most outstanding examples of
this demand for Oregon sociology
majors has been brought to light
by the several offers Paul Fore
man, sociology graduate, has just
received. These include a teaching
assistantship at Vanderbilt univer
sity in Nashville, Tennessee, and a
research fellowship at Northwest
ern university, in Evanston, Illi
nois, which concerns the analysis
on the effects of congenital syphil
is in children.
Mr. Foreman wrote his M.S.
thesis under Dr. Samuel H. Jame
son, on “State Care of Juvenile
Male Delinquency in Oregon.” This
project took a year and a half to
complete, and has been judged to
be of such superior quality that he
has been awarded his degree with
honors. He has accepted the Van
derbilt offer, and will leave shortly.
