See by last night’s paper th< Italians have the Kthiopes slug nutty. If you could only tell whei you’re getting the truth. I cai never get over how the nasties thing a grammar school kid coult call you was Kaiser Bill—all be cause George Creel and some ol his henchmen were super-propa gandists. By the way, have yoi been reading Westbrook Pegler’i stuff in the Journal of late—reallj giving the Nazis the works, bul it’s hard to believe much of wha1 he is penning. Good thing h< skipped out of Deutschland befort he put down those observations. Report comes from Texas thai the Townsend candle is burning low. Southerners never could sei giving negroes $200 a month. Tt’« pretty hard to get a lot of them tc work now. Members of Congress believe they will be adjourned sine die b> May 1. If they are out that soor many will be at a loss for an ex cuse to give the home folks for not returning immediately. As long as Congress is in session thev have a real reason for not returning tc face-to-face the button-hole job hunters. 115.000 Federal employees are in Washington. D. C. The bankers are said to be “ex uberant” and “over-ioyled” at news the Treasury will soon float a $2,000,000,000 bond issue to fi nance payment of the bonus and refunds to packers for unconsti tutionallv collecting processing taxes. That joy is to be taken cum grano salis, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to do a little “viewing with alarm” at the prospect of im ping the national debt to nearly 32 billions of dollars. Better start hedging against inflation, you bondholders. Under a clause found by a news hawk in the Soil Conservation Act the administration is preparing to continue paying benefits to farm ers for keeping land out of produc tion. That’s Roosevelt’s answer to the Supreme Courts’ thumbs-down on the AAA, and we are assured of another treat of the policy of scarcity. What a bug-house age we live in: pay a group not to pro duce with one hand and with the other pass to them a bountiful supply of seeds to plant crops they are paid not to grow. Call for Rube Goldberg, call for Rube Gold berg. The Department of Commerce building used to be called Hoover’s mausoleum by some of the local wits. Wonder what they’ll call some of the white marble extrava ganzas completed during the reign of F.D.R. Whoever started that old rib cracker about “clever people, these Chinese” would have done will to have said these Japanese. That foxer Premier Okada pulled had the world caught as flat-footed as the corner policeman, but it strikes me that it was a bit hard on his brother-in-law, who is now sans innards, and reported quite dead. A horoscope-maker predicts Mussolini will be a has-been be fore the year is out. For once there seemes to be something to this horoscope business. Work Continues On WPA Projects Work on the WPA tunnel jobs for the University has been pro gressing rapidly, revealed Mr. Semo'n, engineer in charge. Air hammers are busy on the hard shale rock in Unit No. 3 near Fourteenth street, and the crews are rapidly approaching the con necting point near the street. In the tunnel proper steam pipes are being hung on hangers and for the past week welders have been busy welding the joints. Forms are being put in place in the unit near Friendly hall and concrete pouring is expected soon The university can never lose declared a well-known educator because a freshman never brings anything in and a senior never takes anything out. — Cincinnat Bearcat.

Required ROTC Group Starts Petition Drive Drill Advocates Canvass For Names to Match 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 nesday. 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 here. 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 ing compulsory military.
