Hear Ye, Hear Ye
Lad-e-e-s and gen-til-men. In
troducing in this corner, Anna El
eanor Roosevelt. ’Ray. Clap-clap
clap. And in this corner, Alice
Roosevelt Longworth. ’Ray, 'ray.
Clap-clap-clap. Weight, stripped:
unknown. Clothed: about the
same. May the best woman win!
Clap a’ te clap. Thus have you,
old John P. Public, been introduced
in the last few days to those skirt
ed warriors of the political ring
in what was billed as the “Battle
of the Centsry.”
In case you don’t know—Roose
velt Roosevelt is the wife of our
beloved and berated President, ac
cording to which animal you wear
as a watch fob. In Farley parlance
she says, “Just call me Eleanor."
And Roosevelt Longworth is the
wife of the late Speaker of the
House of Representatives, Nicho
las Longworth, and daughter of
“trust-buster” T. R. But she does
n’t say, “Call me Alice.” She real
ly isn’t very democratic about that.
Round One
Yep, the Battle of the Century.
It is being fought at present on
the front page of the Morning
Oregonian and other pulps of the
land. As an encounter is has fall
en flatter than an old maid’s chest,
but as a circulation builder it has
been eminently successful, proba
bly not causing a loss of over one
half of one per cent in subscrip
Alice and Eleanor were reported
set to go at it hammer and tongs.
Mallon-like let it be said that
such was never true as the best
authorities have all along been
heard to say from their very re
liable quarters that etc., etc. May
be those who thought there would
be fisticuffs got this bout mixed
up with the “Jittery Jack” Shar
key—“Fainting Phil" Scott pre
Louis tea party in Miami a few
years ago.
On that historic occasion the
brave Britisher, Scott, nose-dived
to ignominious defeat. Whether
either victor or vanquished ever
struck a blow is still one of the
hottest questions haggled over by
the people of Arkansas. Alice and
Eleanor are re-enacting that meet
ing. Each knows ole John Public
is going to declare one of them
the best woman. Like Jack and
Phil, each knows that this can be
done without even so much as a
powder-puff blow being passed. Re
sult: both are still in their respec
tive corners, softly shuffling their
slippered sevens in the resisting
Only this one thing is not appar
ent to a lot of ring-siders—Alice
is wearing political gloves. Her
shadow boxing has cruelly dented
the midriff of an imaginary spar
ring partner, called by some New
Deal. Her slashing slams are tak
ing a terrible toll, but no, look at
Eleanor. How she has pummeled
that bag of personal blah. If |pme
one would ring the gong before
they see one another, stop the bout
before it is started, and holler lus
tily, “No Contest.”
Five Patients
Left in Infirmary
With only Arthur Hill entering
the infirmary and three patients
being sent home, the sick list
dropped from seven to five. Le
Nelie Mathews, Steve Crosley,
Eunice Bales, and Tom McCall are
still confined.

Ethiopian Idea Invades
Campus at Beaux Arts Ball
“Little Audrey” thinks that Ital
ian bombs are good for the skin,
and the annual Beaux Arts ball,
to be held Saturday, January 18,
in Gerlinger hall will conclusively
prove to the doubtful that the
Ethiopian war makes a good theme
for a formal dance.
While Mussolini attempts to ex
terminate Haile Selassie and his
Ethiopians in Africa, the battle
waged at the Beaux Arts ball will
be no more serious than a contest
for the best costume. The judges
even promise to reach a decision
without bloodshed or bombing, and
the triumphant victor will be an
nounced at the end of the evening.
Last year’s ball, with its ultra
grotesque cartoons, myriads of
balloons, confetti, and masked rev
ellers was one of the most colorful
and hilarious dances to be given on
the campus.
This year’s ball will transform
Ethiopia into a masqueraders’ bat
tleground and promises to be one
of the most novel and entertain
ing formals of the year.
Kermit Paulson will act as gen
eral chairman for the ball. Other
committee chairmen are: Sam
Fort, decorations; Leland Terry,
music; Don Parks, advertising;
Stuart Mockford, programs; Clyde
Keller, entertainment; Harvey
Johnson, tickets.
McCosh Will
Paint Post Office
Murals for U.S.
David J. McCosh, instructor in
drawing- and painting at the Uni
versity for the past two years, has
received a federal assignment to
do painting on several post offices.
The offer came as a result of the
work he submitted under invited
competition for the mural work on
a post office at Washington, D. C.
"Although I didn’t receive this
commission, my work was in the
runner-up class, and therefore I
have received the other work,” he
Mr. McCosh received notice of
the assignment about two weeks
ago, but has not yet been informed
as to where the work will be or
when it will begin.

mostly by students taking such a
course as “Living Writers,” the
librarian commented.
A few of the newest printed

by Humphrey Cobb; “It Can't
Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis;
and two plays, “Winter Set” by

Prelude to Peace
The Emerald’s position with reference to student fees has
been one of indecision. Not indecision as to the desired end, but a
policy of watchful waiting when a reasonable answer to the
problem might be secured.
This paper has tried to avoid repetition of the time-worn
arguments for and against compulsory fees. Students are sick
of reading such trite and apparently ineffectual phrases as:
"School Spirit," "Student Relief Committee,” "Neubergarian Ti
rade,” "Optional Fee Mass Meeting,” “Compulsory Campaign
Funds,” and “The Graduate Manager's Corporation.”
Students on this campus, both those for and against compul
sory fees, are growing weary of the tension that was created
several years ago when optional extra-curricular activity fees
W'ere installed in the state system of higher education,
In an editorial printed in yesterday's paper, reiterations of
arguments favoring compulsory fee payment were printed. Today
the editors were under strong suspicion that to those people read
ing that editorial, appeared ghosts of a bloodless war that would
rather be forgotten.
Today the differences in the present controversy must be
recognized as an outgrowth of, and analagous to, a nation wide
struggle between the “haves” and the “have nots.” And rather
than let this confflict degenerate into a barrage of words, that
clouds the possible solution with such phrases as “entrenched
greed” and “political demogoguery” a reasonable compromise must
be offered. Peace must be established by negotiation, so that a
solution of the problem may be reached in a manner divorced
from passion and political ambition.
The prolonged fee conflict is getting us nowhere at all. It is
certain that optional fee operation is inadequate as a continued
future policy. It is also certain that an unmodified compulsory fee
program will not assure peace in the future. In either case, the
balance of power and not cooperation will determine the policy
in student fees.
As for the present, the schools of higher education in the state
are the recipients of bad newspaper publicity, and the administra
tion of the affairs of higher education are drifting toward the
morass of political control, unspecialized regulation, and a dis
regard for constituted authority.
* * *
The Emerald has previously indicated that it would carry
analyses of reasons why bill 306 of the January election should be
accepted. This it will not do unless there is an expression of co
operation from both sides of the controversy based on a compro
mise containing the essential point of conflict in the struggle.
This decision is reached only after a careful consideration of
present trends in this controversy which are to the general degre
dation of higher education and point toward no definite settlement
of the dispute—whether the bill be accepted or rejected.
Next Tuesday’s Emerald will carry a plea for cooperation
and establish a working basis for solving this difficulty within
higher education itself—believing that college people look with
more favor on scientific, intelligent methods of “recovery” rather
than bombastic political manipulation.
