never get over how the nasties

a $2,000,000,000 bond issue to fi

bad idea to do a little “viewing

Under a clause found by a news
hawk in the Soil Conservation Act
the administration is preparing to
continue paying benefits to farm

the Supreme Courts’ thumbs-down

another treat of the policy of
scarcity. What a bug-house age we
live in: pay a group not to pro

Work on the WPA tunnel jobs

are rapidly approaching the con

In the tunnel proper steam pipes
are being hung on hangers and for

which he pointed out the economy
of this method of administration,
the possibiities of better contact
with the high student, more oppor
tunity for efficient adult education
i work, and the chances of establish
ing better research departments
and better library service. He
pointed to the fact that there are
some 500,000 volumes available to
any one of the six members of the
Oregon system as evidence of the
opportunity of development there.
Education and Democracy
Education as one of the great
weapons for the defense of democ
racy, was pointed out at the con
ference. “Those at the session
proved by word and act that the

700 of Optionalists
Opposing factions on Oregon's
military education question loaded
their guns yesterday for a final
campaign barrage before the Uni
versity faculty votes on the ques
tion at its regular meeting Wed
Tenseness was increased when
the "Committee for the General
Welfare of the University" circu
lated petitions in fraternity and
sorority houses, the dormitories,
and independents voicing their ap
proval of the present system of
compulsory military training as
experssed in their resolution pub
lished in Saturday’s Emerald.
General Campaign
Members of the committee, in
tipholding their stand for compul
sory military, link it with a general
campaign to promote the Univer
sity’s general welfare. They say
that news concerning campus lib
eral organizations has dominated
the state's reading matter about
the University and given people the
wrong opinion of the situation
Another group, the Opinion
Steering Committee, driving to
wards the same objective, however,
appears to disagree with this com
mittee in their first step of back
