VOLUME XXXVII UNIVERSITY OF OREGON EUGENE. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 15, 1935 NUMBER 32 t***************** STAGE I of the WORLD By Tex Thomason Promise Contrary to the precedent es tablished by presidential, guber natorial, and ward-heel nominees this column is going to keep one promise. Yesterday was asked why peace is a big-time racket. Here is the Queen Victoria and her colleagues the philosophy of imperialism, which is a pedagog’s name for the yen for expansion and the desire for colonies, was the order of the day. Pigs! England, France, Germany, and the United States were the most successful in this laudable enter prise. Of these four, Germany was the well known piggie closest to the rear of his lumbering mater. He got the worst of the deal. The effort to improve that deal was one of the principal reasons for that war which gave us Arm istice day. When the conflict was over it was “to the victors belong the spoils,” and to protect their gluttonous feast they formed that holy of holies, the League of Na tions. Peaces of Pie Peace would maintain the status quo of the states of the world. War would violently disrupt it. Is it not to the interest of those who are satisfied to keep peace ? And the agent of that enforcement of peace is the league. Germany, Japan, Italy. One na tion had her pie taken away from her. Two didn’t have enough of it to feel full, and though the world was war-sick the appetite of these three grew on apace. Germany and Japan have quit the league to be scavengers on the remains of the victor’s banquet. Italy is their comrade in fact if not in theory. Those left in the league are the lily-white champions of peace. Yes, indeed, doves over the doorway, clasped hands, jus tice’s scales in perfect balance. All that stuff. Profit and Loss England and France have every thing to lose by war. Italy, Japan, and Germany everything to gain (Continued on Payc Two) W. L. Morse Makes Labor Settlement Dean Wayne L.

Goal Is Set For Library Room Fund |Mrs. Gerlinger Asks |For Furnishings jBy Various Campus Living Organizations Ey ELLOMAE WOODWORTH Setting; their minimum goal for $10,000, the Friends of the Library j organization, under the direction I of Mrs. George T. Gerlinger, laid definite plans for raising funds to furnish the browsing room of the new library. At the committee meeting Thursday, personal appeal was made by Mrs. Gerlinger to living i organizations, classes and honor ary organizations to pledge them selves for individual furnishings for the recreational reading room. Such items as chairs, lamps, tables, davenports, rugs, andirons and drapes were listed as necessary furnishings, each piece to be fur nished by some group. There is a total of approximately 100 articles needed to completely furnish the room. Dean James H. Gilbert, faculty library committee member, sug gested that a definite name be applied to the browsing room, making it more a memorial. Until the proper name is decided upon, the room will be called the me morial reading room. The main program for raising funds was launched by Mrs. Ger linger, who has been active in such campaigns on this campus before, and who suggested that the pledges that were made at the time of the University gift cam paign, ten years ago, be trans ferred to apply on the present campaign. j (Please turn to page tzeo) Girls Industrial Groups to Confer Week-end Conference To Open November 23 The Industrial Relations group will be hostesses November 23, 24, to a number of members of the In dustrial Girls Group of the Port land YWCA who will be on the campus for a week-end conference.

Miss Thacher will return to Eu gene Monday. Amendment Little Use To Independents In a meeting last night, Yeomen heads pledged support to the constitutional amendment creating for independents a position on the executive council. Say the Yeomen: “This is our chance to show the campus that we really are interested and desire to take an active part in student affairs.” Of course the Yeomen and other independents are desirous of "taking an active part in student affairs”! There is no argument about that. But the acquisition of that desired state is not possible by burying a man in the executive council. The real reason why independent students and dormitory stu dents have not been sufficiently active in past student body regimes revolves about the power of these groups to help a candi date for office attain that office. A student body card is a neces sary requirement for voting eligibility. If at election time 300 independents hold 85 student body cards and 300 affiliated persons possess 260 cards—then the politician goes to the group that can do him the most good. He goes to the fraternities and to the sororities. As regards elections, the student body card amounts to a $5 poll tax. The president-elect is obligated to favor those who support him—his first consideration going to his immediate sup porters, his second going to the person or persons sufficiently interested in the student body to buy a student ticket, and his third thought is directed toward the independent. This is natural. Now it is wrong to assure independent student equal represen tation in student body affairs under the above proportions, just as it is wrong to offer them a point blank position on the executive council when no other group is assured by law of that representa tion. The ideal situation would be a case where representation in student activities is directly proportional to the student body cards held. In other words, if the independent student held 30 per cent of the cards, they should have 30 per cent of the jobs, taking into consideration the importance of those jobs. What would this do? It should serve as an added incentive for independent students to organize, and it would relieve the feeling that now exists that independents are excluded from activities by the political machine of fraternities and sororities. But even this status can never be reached until the appointing powers be taken from the hands of the student body president, and placed in the hands of a centralized committee made up from these same proportions. If President Blais and the independents will work for this principle then they will smooth out a difficulty that will only be accentuated by widening the political breach between affiliated and unaffiliated persons by special legislation. The executive position created by the coming amendment does far too little good for the independent student and should NOT be accepted . 1936 Oregana To Push Sales Next Week Cash Payment May Be Deferred Until Winter Term; Free Books Are Offered A concentrated drive to put the yearbook subscription quota over the top is being: made by Newton Stearns, business manager, who yesterday announced the observ ance of next week, starting Tues day morning, as "Oregana week.” No cash down payment will be necessary to sign for the book, stu dents simply being asked to sign to pay in installments at winter and spring term registration.

Paulson, Nash Vic At Polls Today for Vacancy, Climaxing Uneventful Campaigns Hailing1 the proposed amend ments to the constitution of the associated students of the Univer sity as an opportunity for inde pendent students to gain a foot hold in campus self-representation. Yeomen heads pledged their sup port to the measures at an infor mal meeting last night. “This is our chance to show the campus that we really are inter ested and desire to take an active part in student affairs,” Yeomen President Fred Gieseke stated. The Yeomen leaders asked that Yeomen and Orides members and all other campus independents go to the polls today and make a place for themselves in student government. Also .Support Paulson Informal action was also taken by the leaders of the independent men’s organization to throw the weight of the Yeomen’s political support into the campaign for the position of junior officer by back ing Kermit Paulson. Political rumblings grew louder today as questions arose over the term, “living organization” in the proposed amendments which will create an independent office in the executive council. The amendments will be voted upon today along with the contest between Frank Nash and Kermit Paulson for finance officer. “Dormitory” Defined It was revealed Thursday that students in the dormitories believe themselves to be members of liv ing organizations. Virgil Earl, dean of men, and other faculty members confirmed this belief. Glenn Griffith, YMCA secretary, said yesterday: “The creation of such a position on the executive council will not give independents much more power in student gov ernment. The proposed amend ments in my opinion should be altered to create more definite duties. I do not believe that an ar rangement wherein six members were working in one direction and only one member in another would operate successfully.” (Continued on Pac/e Tree) Tom Stoddard’s Car Is Stolen The car of N.
