Day’s News
By the Associated Press
;-MAY 16 ■ — ■" - ----
ft ar Seems Imminent
ROME — Four ships, carrying
3.500 men and a quantity of war
materials, left Italian ports today
for East Africa as Italian newspa
pers devoted most of their front
pages to threats of war with Ethi
opia.
It was disclosed this afternoon
that Sir Eric Drummond, the Brit
ish ambassador, saw Premier Mus
solini briefly yesterday before
leaving for London. A hurried
summons from the foreign office
caused Sir Eric’s departure.
Attack Sir John Simon
LONDON — The possibilities of
a shakeup in the British cabinet
were discussed avidly today, not
only in parliament lobbies, but in
government offices.
A strong attack aunched against
Sir John Simon, foreign secretary,
by conservatives headed by Sir
Austen Chamberlain and Winston
Churchill has given rise to reports
Premier Ramsay MacDonald may
become foreign secretary, a post
he formerly held, with Baldwin re
suming the premiership.
ISRA’s Life Threatened
WASHINGTON - A thinly
veiled threat of legislative dead
lock threatening NRA’s existence
was flung by Senator Borah today
at a fresh White House agreement
to fight for a two-year extension
of the recovery law.
On behalf of senate NRA critics,
the Idaho Republican warned Dem
ocratic leaders bluntly—although
in an almost conversational tone—
that he and other proponents of
the law would not compromise the
senate’s plan for a 10-month ex
tension of a close-clipped code rule
of industry, but would battle for
“precisely what we believe to be
in the interests of the country.’’
Airplanes Maneuver
WITH UNITED STATES
FLEET MID-PACIFIC MANEU
VERS — Two great fleets are
sending airplanes far and wide
over areas of the North Pacific
today from aircraft carriers, crui
sers, and battleships in a game of
hide and seek.
It is the major phase of six
weeks of maneuvers that puts two
fleet commanders under a test of
strategy more severe than any
naval problem heretofore.
Vice-Admiral Arthur J. Hep
burn, commander of the “black”
force, has control of island out
posts, with shore forces and sea
plane patrols holding widespread
points. Like a spider in his web,
he is moving his main “black”
fleet of dreadnaughts, cruisers, air
craft squadrons, destroyers, and
submarines somewhere between the
Aleutian islands and Midway is
land.
Admiral Harris Laning, com
mander of the powerful “white”
fleet, has the problem of wresting
this control from destroying expe
ditionary forces and seeking out
the main “black" battle force and
of testing his tactical ability.
Rogue River Is Closed
PORTLAND — The state fish
commission today had taken the
perennial Rogue river question in
tow by declaring the stream closed
to commercial fishing on and after
June 12.
The action follows the legislative
vote to close the stream on the
same date, and nullifies efforts of
cannery interests to keep the
stream open by filing petitions for
a referendum.
Three times the state legislature
has passed a measure to preserve
the Rogue for sports fishing and
twice a state-wide ballot has re
sulted in overriding legislative
wishes.
Petitions already are in circula
tion to keep the stream open but
as a result of the fish commission’s
action, announced today by M. T.
Hoy, master fish warden, they will
be rendered useless.
Quezon Only Candidate
MANILA — A presidential elec
tion with possibly only one can
didate on the ballot for that high
office seemed in prospect for the
Philippines today.
Although the election still was
3'i months away, the possibility
of opposition for Manuel L. Que
zon, president of the insular sen
ate and only bidder for the chief
executive's chair thus far, ap
peared highly remote.
Quezon is disliked in some quar
ters, particularly by the Sakdal
istas who staged the bloody May
2 uprising, but no one has exhib
ited the courage to stand against
him as a rival candidate.

Held in Weird Torch Death
b*
Accused of a murder conspiracy rare in crime annals are Frank
di Stasio (left), candy-maker, and his son, Anthony, pictured here after
their arrest at Rever, Mass. They have been indicted in connection
with the alleged slaying and cremation of an elderly unidentified man
whose charred body was found in the di Stasio automobile. The body,
police charged, was to have been identified as that of the elder di
Stasio so that the son could collect $12,500 in life insurance.
Pre-Medical
Society asks
For Courses
Group to Present Boyer
With Resolution
Of Protest
In spontaneous protest against
the insufficiency of science courses
offered students at the University,
members of the student pre-medi
cal society yesterday passed a res
olution to be sent to President C.
V. Boyer asking the return of num
erous courses which have been
taken from the curriculum since
the upper division science courses
have been shifted to Oregon State
college.
Max Carter, president of the
group, explained last night that the
request was not an attempt to take
anything away from OSC, but
merely a move to get courses of
fered that pre-medical students re
quire, and must have in order to
get into larger medical schools.
Ever since the Corvallis school has
been the major science post stu
dents have sounded a repeated call
for a more varied offering here in
the science courses.
The resolution is as follows:
To Dr. C. V. Boyer, President
University of Oregon.
WHEREAS, the science courses
now offered at the University of
Oregon fulfill only the minimum
requirements for entrance to medi
cal schools, and
WHEREAS, it is desirable and,
for entrance to some schools nec
essary, that pre-medical students
study science courses other than
those now offered in the Univer
sity, and
WHEREAS, the University has

Seabeck Tonight
Films to Arouse Interest in
Annual Conferences
Ray Culver, regional YMCA sec
retary will be at Villard hall to
night at 7:30 to show movies of
Camp Seabeck on Puget Sound in
Washington.
Culver will also give a short talk
discussing the activities and dis
cussion groups that will be held at
the annual conference this year.
The pictures are being sponsored
by the YMCA and YWCA jointly.
Scenes of the camp life and activ
ities at last summer's Seabeck
conference will be shown. The
purpose of the films is to arouse
general interest among the stu
dents in the Seabeck conferences
which are held each summer.
New System Adopted
Contrary to previous practices,
this year’s conference will be held
for both the YWCA and YMCA
groups at the same time. It is ex- j
pected that under this arrange
ment there will be a larger atten
dance than formerly and that a
better faculty will be secured. It
will also be possible to run this
conference for ten days rather than
the usual five of past years.
Culver, in his talk Friday night,
will answer any questions regard
ing details of the Seabeck confer
ence and will elaborate further
upon th^ program, faculty, and ex
pense.

Business Ad Mai ors Reply to Lawyers9 Baseball Challenge
May 16, 1935,
Law School,
University of Oregon,
Eugene, Oregon.
Gentlemen:
Ho hum! It has come to our at
tention that the notoriously imma
ture law students are yet again
attempting in their infantile man
ner to challenge the obviously
athletically superior B.A. majors
to a game of softball, the mechan
ics and intricacies of which are
undoubtedly out of reach of any
mere law student. In fact for
years, yea verily, for eons and
eons, we have inflicted on those
unhappy inhabitants of the law
school a series of most heartrend
ing defeats, the very disgrace of
which has steadily decreased the
enrollment of said class C institu
tion to the point where we sadly
fear that if we are not more hu
mane in our chastisement,—alas
there will be no law school.
Of course in the event of any
such happening we stand ready to
make amends by incorporating
said collection of tomes into our
own the most exacting library and
making the remnants of the law
school into a department of the
Business Administration school in
order to create electives for our
freshmen. Of course, the campus
as a whole is well aware of the
fact that in order to maintain the
high quality of our distinguished
school, the Business Administra
tion professors always send the
applicants for freshman standing
in our school who have been clas
sified by the psyc. examination
into the lower half of ail those
taking said indicator of intelli
gence over to the law school where
they invariably occupy the higher
strata of the grade lists. Such
charity on our part has been the
main factor in keeping the law
school in existence.
As in the past we have always
allowed our competitors to choose
the umpire for the contest, and the
lawyers have always responded no
bly by enticing some life-long in
habitant of the blind school to the
campus for the day, no doubt
promising said individual an LL.D.
degree if he favors them with
some questionable decisions, yet, as
before, said arbitrator has always
[sensed the distinct and unmistak
able excellence of the performance
given by the B.A. majors and re
warded us accordingly.
We might suggest that if the
lawyers aren’t quite up to coming
out from behind their bifocals and
backing up their somewhat timid
challenge in view of the results of
other years, they might do better
with a team composed of Ann
Hutchinson, Nora Hitchman, Jac
qualine Vaughn, Dorothy Kliks,
Clarissa Clark, Alberta Davis,
Phyliss Hay ter, Katherine Karpen
stine, Rachel Devers. Another pro
posal would be for male barris
ters to do the fielding, and the
above robust females to do the
batting.
The gentlemen of the B. A. (bet
ter activities) school have always
marveled at the persistency with
which the anemic droops of the
law school dare to challenge us
when we have demonstrated our
athletic prowess to them so often
in the past. But here again we are
always ready to accommodate,
even so insignificant a challenge
as this. But we feel it our duty to
warn the forlorn members of the
law school that when they procure
dates for their dance, they should
secure the signatures of the un
fortunate females to iron-clad con
tracts, for after the catastrophe
that Is to be enacted this coming
Saturday, the women in question
will be loathe to cavort about with
males of such low caliber.
In closing, for the elucidation
and information of the legal lights,
after this, their most recent de
feat, we urge them to recruit fu
ture teams from the more spright
ly members of some home for the
aged, the result being that the law
school will be much more ably rep
resented. After all, the members
of the law school must remember
that B.A. (again we say better
activities) majors are noted for
their industry, and any time taken
off from such serious pursuits for
the purpose of educating the mem
bers of the law school into the nice
ities of correct softball playing is
to be lauded and appreciated as a
distinct sacrifice on their part.
Yours truly,
School of Business Adminis
tration, University of Oregon.

Maxine Sautter
To Be Presented
In Music Recital
Blind Student Wins Praise
Of Previous Audiences
Maxine Sautter, contralto, is to
appear in a complete recital in the
school of music auditorium next
Tuesday evening, starting at 8:15
o'clock, it was announced yester
day by her instructor, Roy Bryson.
Miss Sautter, who is almost to
tally blind, has appeared many
times before audiences and her re
cital promises to be one of the
highlights of the current season of
student recitals.
Recently she appeared in a full
recital in Waller hall at Willamette
university and as soloist at the dis
trict convention of the Lion’s club
in Eugene and at the state conven
tion for the Rebekah lodge at As
toria. She has also sung over ra
dio station KORE and received
much favorable comment from her
listeners.
Writing of Miss Sautter's ap
pearance in Salem, the Capital
Journal said: "Attractive in ap
pearance, poised and responsive to
moods, the young artist, although
blind, saw every note and got the
most out of Handel, Saint-Saens,
Straus and Cyril Scott.”
Her complete program is to be
announced early next week.
Jeannette Turner is to accom
pany Miss Sautter on the piano.
Journalists Edit
Register-Guard
With Managing Editor W. M.
Tugman and Professors George
Turnbull and Charles Hulten glanc
ing in for only a few minutes dur
ing the day, journalism students in
reporting, copyediting, and editing
classes yesterday put out the Eu
gene Register-Guard completely
on their own.
Over 45 students worked at va
rious times during the day on the
edition which is an annual project
of the classes.
Staff members appeared to get
their biggest thrill from a suc
cessful shift of banners and top
stories for the mail edition and the
city edition, with only a 15 minute
leeway period in which to accom
plish the change. The regular pa
per seldom makes such a change.
High School Glee Club
Presents Concert at 8
Under the direction of Anne
Landsbury Beck, a member of the
University school of music fac
ulty, the University high school
glee club will appear in its spring
concert this evening at 8 o’clock
in the music auditorium. Students,
as well as the general public, have
been invited to attend.
Incidental solos are to be sung
by Elizabeth Onthank, soprano;
Winfield Gredvig, baritone; Don
Pollack, baritone; Dorothy Dens
law, soprano; Don Childers, bari
tone; and George Craig, tenor.
First Place Contestants
On Air at 4:15, 4:45
This Afternoon
Programs Contrast
Competition With Oregon
State Abandoned
Phi Gamma Delta and Sigma
hall emerged yesterday from the
interhouse competition on the Em
erald of the Air broadcasts as the
organizations presenting the best
programs over KORE. As a result
the two groups will appear on the
stage of the McDonald theater to
night after which the winner will
be announced and awarded the $25
prize by the McDonald manage
ment.
The contests have been held dur
ing the last two weeks, and due to
the number of withdrawals, com
petition with Oregon State living
organizations and an appearance
of the winners in Portland will not
be possible, it was stated yesterday
by Woodrow Truax, manager of
the contest.
To Present Programs
The two groups will also appear
over radio station KORE this af
ternoon, the dormitory group
scheduled to present their program
beginning at 4:15 and the frater
nity men at 4:45. The judges, J. A.
Carrell, of the University speech
department, Naomi Harper, of
KORE, and Mrs. J. B. Patterson,
pianist, are to make their decision
soon after the radio presentation.
The result will not be announced
until after both have appeared be
fore the theater audience, however.
Qualities to be taken into consid
eration by the judges are the gen
eral ability of the participants, the
theme, continuity, and other qual
ities necessary to make a good
radio program.
Stage Contest at 8:45
Sigma hall’s program is com
posed of a series of impersonations
and Phi Gamma Delta's is made up
of musical numbers.
The curtain is to rise on the
stage show tonight at 8:45 o’clock,
and participants have been asked
to be at the theater not later than
8:30.

'High Country’ by Mrs. Ernst
Uses Northwest for Locale
By Laura Margaret Smith
An unusual literary thrill is the
good fortune of Oregon readers
this week—the release by the Met
ropolitan press of Portland of a
truly northwestern book by one of
the University's own faculty peo
ple.
The new volume is "High Coun
try,” a book of four plays by Alice
Henson Ernst of the University
English department, and is, in the
words of the author, “the first sus
tained attempt to interpert the
northwest by means of the drama.”
Although the edition is limited,
copies of the book are now obtain
able at the University Co-op store.
A special window display, includ
ing the author’s picture and
proofs of the book, is a feature at
McMorran and Washburne’s this
week. Included in “High Country’’
is Mrs. Ernst’s first full-length
play, “Out Trail,” already being
considered for production by the
Portland Civic Theater.
