if it’s worthwhile. Wouldn’t it be simpler

is iu charge of campus landscaping, nodding
his head in weary agreement with us.
Seriously, though, there are too many
rugged individualists in this institution who
find the walks and paths not to their con

pioneering so many new trails that the cam

the other night we fell in behind a group

toward the front of the hall, and%we—iu a
lone and probably futile gesture of rebuke—

There are still details to be ironed out

of these is the ever-importaut problem of

necessary to insure completion of the work.

Cooperation is absolutely necessary. The
money is being raised to give this University
the kind of an athletic field it should have

Men and Nations
By HOWARD KESSLER
The University’s perennial favorite is back
on the campus.
He is Colonel John Leader of the twinkling
eyes and facile tongue, who has captivated Uni
versity coeds and won the admiration of Univer
sity men ever since he first appeared at Oregon
from the British Army in 1917 to whip into shape
for service overseas a thousand students with an
appalling ignorance of things military.
On Monday, although suffering from a cold,
Colonel Leader arose in time to speak for one
hour to Dean Allen’s nine o’clock class in editing.
Then he turned to goose grease and mustard
When he recovers we hope to have a long talk
with the amiable Colonel, after which we should
like to present the views on contemporary world
problems of this expert in armies and armaments.
Just now we shall have to content ourselves !
with a statement made by Colonel Leader in his
rambling and highly interesting commentary to
the journalism students.
“As long as men will defend their women, so
long there will be wars,” said the. Colonel. “We
may be able to stop wars of aggression, or un
necessary wars, but it is silly to talk of stopping
We have a dread that Colonel Leader is right.
Certainly, attempts made thus far to prevent
wars have failed miserably. Yet, if that verdict
be accepted, what hope ?
That wars can be regulated according to rules
of fair and foul? How successful has this been
in the past?
That wars may be limited to the “necessary
wars" as suggested by the Colonel? All ware are
necessary in the eyes of the armies and com
manders waging them.
For the sake of future generations, therefore,
it is worth while to determine whether wars are
inevitable or not.
“War is an effect of human nature when put
under certain conditions, but is not a fatal pro
duct of that nature.” This from <i. I.awes Dick
inson, noted professor of economics. He cites the
seven causes of war, such as wars for subsistence,
wars for territory, for soldiers, for safe frontiers,
to spread civilization, etc.
Finding a Substitute
"The civilized nations can be saved from war
by political and economic action. The struggle1
for power will always exist. It is a question, as I
William James puts it. of finding a substitute for i
war.” So write Major K A. JUratt in his "That 1
Next War?" And continues:
"The study of peace as a positive state of
being is still in its early beginnings. For ages
wav has been studied intensely. For a few cen
turies the possibility of non-war was vaguely
dreamt of, and it has been tentatively organized
since 1919. But the conception of peace as a last
ing condition of mankind is hardly older than the
renunciation of war by the Kellog pact.”
Concerning inevitable war. Colonel Loader’s
compatriot, Sir Norman Angell, has this to say:
“Which war? Any war proposed at any time
b\ nn> irresponsible newspaper about anything?
Plainly some wars can he prevented. Further,
militarists don’t believe all wars are inevitable
beeuse they urge more armament on the ground
that that will help to preserve peace.
"Disease is inevitable, but we have eliminated
ancient pestilences like the Black Death, bubonic
plague, leprosy, cholera, by better sanitary mea
sures. The measures sometimes fail; we don't
thereupon abandon them; we stiffen them. Our
national constitutions sometimes fall to prevent
civil war, but we nevertheless know that constitu
tions are better than making every election a

“it is my aim and goal to be
come the best hated professor on
the campus,” Dr. Marder declared
with a twinkle in his eye. "I pro
pose to accomplish this by having

and by giving vicious examina
tions,” he continued.
For the benefit of students in
terested in the classes he is teach
ing, Dr. Marder explained that the
course on Recent Russia will be re
placed spring term with post-war
