Student Says
He Will Fight
ROTO Decision
Campus Groups Are
Expected to Support
Connelly in Demand
For Drill Exemption
The military exemptions com
mittee’s refusal to grant exemp
tion from drill to Gordon Connelly,
journalism student, was followed
last night by Connelly’s declara
tion that he will fight the case and
under no circumstances will take
ROTC. Connelly based his appli
cation for exemption on the
grounds that the military course is
academically valueless and a waste
of time.
Two students appeared before
the faculty committee when it met
Tuesday, one of them Connelly,
and the other Gilbert Titus, con
scientious objector, who was ex
empted. More than 25 students
have been exempted on these
grounds, according to Colonel E.
V. D. Murphy, head of the military
Connelly said last night, “I view
the decision of the military exemp
tions committee as obviously un
fair. My reasons as presented to
that body constitute what I con
sider fully adequate grounds for
exemption. I will under no cir
cumstances take military training,
and I intend to fight this case un
til a satisfactory decision is ren
Ordinarily the committee ex
empts students on two grounds,
conscientious objection and a
heavy work schedule. Connelly de
parted from the usual procedure
by basing his complaint entirely
on the allegation that the military
course is valueless, a waste of
time, and has no legitimate place
as a compulsory feature of a liber
al university.
Compatriots of Connelly said
lkst night several organizations
are expected to support him in a
test case. Just what procedure
will be followed is not known, but
will rest more or less with military
authorities, since Connelly has said
, he will under no condition return
to drill.

Oregon Libe
Shows Bibles
8 Facsimile Pages
Display Early Dates
In commemoration of the 400th
anniversary of the first Bible
printed in English, the'University
library will have on display fac
similes of different editions and
translations of Bibles, ranging
from the years 1525 to 1611. Those
facsimile pages received by M. H.
Douglass, librarian, showing the
history of the English Bible, are:
I. Tyndale’s New Testament,
Testament, 1525.
II. Coverdale’s Bible, 1535.
III. Mathew's Bible, 1537.
IV. The Great Bible, 1539.
V. The Geneva Bible, 1560.
VI. The Bishop's Bible, 1568.
VII. The Rheims-Douai Bible,
VIII. The King James Bible,
The anniversary starts October
4, which date appears on the last
page of the Coverdale Bible in
1535 as the date when the task of
printing the Bible was completed.
The display will be kept until De
cember 8, which is the second Sun
day in December and which day,
for several years, has been Bible
Sunday in many churches an?
seems an appropriate date for end
ing the observance.
An article in The Publisher’s
Weekly related:
“Four hundred years ago, the
first great translator of the Bible
into modern English was held in a
Belgian jail . . . and the first Bible
was being (stealthily issued from
an unmarked press.’’
The American Bible Society, Bi
ble House, New York City, printed
the facsimile pages sent out by
the National Commemoration com
mitttee. The exhibit to be held in
our library will play its part in
helping to make this anniversary
a national movement.

About Nazi Germany

conditions in Germany and other
European countries. She retraced
German history, showing the caus
es which led up to the present Ger

Professor Sargent, who has re
cently been to Germany during her
year’s leave of absence, told of the
enthusiasm with which German
people accepted Hitler, describing

George Asks Student
Support for Send-off
It’s “Dutch treat” for Friday
night! The men dig deep after thin
dimes week-end after week-end'
and the women contribute a bit
at Mortar Board but the big rally
at the Broadway theater in Port
land Friday night is to be “even
Stephen.” This was the decision
of the Oregon rally committee
headed by Jack Campbell which
is in charge of Oregon’s official
festivities in the Rose city Friday
and Saturday.
Ticket booths have been estab
lished on three main campus cross
roads: the old' libe, in front of the
law temple, and on the Co-op front
porch. Tickets sell for 40 cents
and will be on sale until noon to
day. Everyone is urged to get
their tickets early as a large crowd
is expected. Men and women buy
their own tickets and all come
prepared to blow the theater roof
off at the big funfest Friday night,
urged Campbell.
A rousing pep rally tomorrow
noon at the Southern Pacific sta
tion is being planned by Bill
George, yell leader, who asks that
every able bodied' man and woman
be on hand at 12:20 to let the team
know that all the students are be

George asked that living organi
zations try to have early lunches
on Friday to permit students to
join in the huge send-off, pep af
fair before the train leaves.
Friday night the big rally will
start in front of the Broadway
theater at 9:30 o’clock. At 10:00
everyone will go inside and either
see the screen attraction or dance
in the ballroom upstairs to the mu
sic of Buck McGowan’s orchestra.
After the show, an all-Oregon
stage review and pep stunts are
planned. Campbell urged everyone
to turn out and expect a good
time. The stunts include dances
by former Broadway review stars
and many feature entertainments.
“We’re going to really have a swell
time,” said Campbell.
After the game Saturday the
Oregon alumni and the rally com
mittee will stage a dance at the
Multnomah hotel. The charge will
be $1.00 a couple.
"If the students whoop it up and
show the enthusiasm they did at
the Utah game, the dance Satur
day night will be a victory dance,”
I Campbell predicted.

Mighty Oregon Band Will
Rival Bear Musicians
This coming week-end when the
University of Oregon Varsity
squad has its trial by fire against
the first of its Coast Conference
competitors, tjrere will be another
contest raging in the streets, the
radio stations and the great
theatrical arenas of downtown
The University of Oregon band,
which has been described various
ly as “The mighty 80 piece Ore
gon band” and the "fifteen pieces
that played in Bend,” actually a
well-knit organization of 49 men,
will be running up against what
is ballyhooed as the sttffest band
competition on the coast. Califor
nia is sending up an 80 piece or
ganization, selected from nearly
five times the amount of raw
material that the Oregori group
has on tap. And they’ve been re
hearsing since mid-August.
They are coming up as the rep
resentatives of their school. No
rooting section will be imported.
The patent boast behind this dec
laration is that they don’t need a
rooting section.
At any rate, whether or not
their band will show up the newly
uniformed “best band the Univer
sity ever had,” the Oregon men
are rehearsing new numbers,
working hard and preparing to
give the Californians a scrap.
All loyal Oregon supporters are
asked to get behind their band—
they are invited to clap (in tempo
if possible) when their musical or
ganization plays and to sing
with re-doubled vigor the refrain
of “Mighty Oregon.”
From all reports, there will be
much need of strong support for
the football squad and the band
members have pledged themselves
to do their part.
