VOLUMNE XXXVI UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY, MAY 21, 1935 NUMBER 120 Resume of the Day’s News By the Associated Press - --— MAV 20-- ' Ethiopia Sends Appeal GENEVA — Emperor Haile Se lassie of Ethiopia got in the first blow as the council of the League of Nations assembled today to re view his menacing border quarrel with Italy. In a personal telegram to Gen eva the "king of kings’’ appealed to the league to halt Italy’s huge program of military preparations in northeast Africa and accused Home of evading international ob ligations. "Italy initiated a campaign of propaganda in an endeavor to jus tify her occupation of Ethiopian territory as a mission of civiliza tion and her aggression and rapac ity against our people as the treat ment due a barbarous nation,” his telegram asserted. French Fleet Moves PARIS — France is transferring her naval strength from Mediter ranean waters, it was learned to day, to protect herself against any possible danger from Germany’s naval rearmament. The sea force which defends the British channel and the North sea is being strengthened. Four tor pedo boats and the destroyer Lynx are expected to be transferred from the Mediterranean to the channel fleet after maneuvers off Morocco in early June, along with other reinforcements. This move coordinates the trans fer of thousands of soldiers from the Italian frontier to fortifica tions along the Franco-German border, following Adolf Hitler’s an nouncement of military conscrip tion. Death Toll Reaches 18 OKLAHOMA CITY — Between 300 and 500 families were being moved out of the Oklahoma City lowlands to escape onrushing flood waters tonight as the southwest's storm dead amounted to 18 with damage estimated at $3,000,000. Throughout much of the state and in Texas as well, streams were falling and the floods which ac companied tornadoes in a climax to drought-breaking rains surged eastward and southward. But as a slow rise in the North Canadian river heralded and re ported approach of a 15-foot wall of water here, relief and rescue efforts were accelerated. Eli tier W rites Speech BERLIN — Adolf Hitler spent most of the day writing the speech he will make to the Reichstag to morrow night to tell the world what the Nazi regime has to offer ' to alleviate European tension. Der Fuehrer was buoyed by dem onstrations in his honor at the opening at Frankfurt-on-the-Main yesterday of the Reich’s first road exclusively for automobiles. He will again face one of his most critical moments tomorrow. The largest Reichstag in history, although one of the most impotent which now has 669 members, in cluding eight newly appointed dep uties from the Saar, was chosen as the forum for Hitler’s views.

Finances Might Prevent Science Course Return Present Conditions Make Change Difficult Should the appeal for the return of upper division science courses made Wednesday in petition form by members of the pre-medical society be granted, financial condi tions would probably prevent the return., President C. V. Boyer de clared in a recent interview. In order to obtain an upper divi sion course on the campus of either the University of Oregon or Ore gon State college in a field limited to minor work in that institution, the dean of the school in which the course is requested must first be consulted. “When either the University or the State college wishes to give an upper division course in a field of minor work, if there is a demand for service courses, the request must first be presented to the dean of the school on the campus where the upper division work is pre sented,” President Boyer said. The action of pre-medic students is not new, the president declared, but has been adopted before in other cases. If the school of science on this campus was financially able to give upper division work as service courses, the request would then be taken to Earl Packard, dean of the Oregon State school of science, and George W. Peavy, presdient of Oregon State college. Should their approval be gained, the next step would be to present the request to the curricula com mittee of the state board of higher education for final approval.
