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 tions. 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. Towel 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 rosin. Gong 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. No Oreganos Sold After Noon Today, Announces Root Today is the last day as far as Oregana purchases are con cerned, announced George Root, editor, last night.

More than 100 voices are now included in the choir, but there is room for the addition of a number of tenor and bass voices. The only requirement is that the students be able to carry a tune and have a fairly good range, Mr. Petri said.

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.

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 said. 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. Corvallis Group Will Give Play The Westminster players from Oregon State college will present a play “Da Thane” Sunday evening at 6:30 at Westminster house.

Co-op Libe Supplies Campus 65 Books Daily Approximately 65 books a day leave the well-stocked shelves of the Co-op book shop to supply the appetite of those campus book worms who for one dollar a term cqp read as much as their eyes and time will permit. This oppor tunity has been “grabbed at” mostly by students taking such a course as “Living Writers,” the librarian commented. A few of the newest printed arrivals include: "Paths of Glory” by Humphrey Cobb; “It Can't Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis; and two plays, “Winter Set” by Maxwell Anderson, and “If This Be Treason” by John Haynes Holmes.

Cornish Publishes Manufacturing Text “Marketing of Manufactured Goods," a book written by Pro fessor Newel H. Cornish, of the Oregon business school, is being used as a text by Professor Corn ish’s classes in problems in dis tribution. 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. Speakers Lined Up for Winter Term Assemblies Several speakers will be brought to the campus during the coming term, Karl W. Onthank, dean of personnel, announced after a re cent meeting of the assembly com mittee. The only assembly definitely scheduled will be the appearance on January 31 of Commander Stewart F.
