Justices Have Big Day
Answering charges of incompet
ence with action the supreme court
yesterday handed down three ma
jor affirmative decisions on the
right of states to fix women's
minimum wages, the Frazier-Lem
ke farm mortgage moratorium,
and the act guaranteeing collective
bargaining to rail workers.
The women's minimum wage
law, sustained yesterday by a 5-4
decision, was declared unconstitu
tional by the same margin a year
ago, Justice Roberts providing the
margin in both cases. Action of
the court was held by proponents
of the president’s scheme as a sign
that the court was "weakening.”
Opposition failed to see any signi
ficence in the reversal, charging it
as the "proper function of a court.”
Dissenting justices took oppor
tunity to hit at Roosevelt's hope
to speed up the court's acceptance
of social and New Deal legislation,
writing: “The judicial function . .
. . does not include the power of
amendment under the guise of in
terpretation.” "The remedy in that
situation. ... is to amend the con
Majority answered: "The liberty
safeguarded is liberty in a social
organization which requires the
protection of law against the evils
which menace the health, safety
morals and welfare of the people.”
Judicial Wet Nurses
While congressional debaters
were thrown into turmoil by the
supreme court reversal, Demo
cratic Senator Carter Glass lashed
at FDR's six “judicial wet-nurses,”
called for an organized propaganda
against the danger of a possible
autocracy, and declared that there
was “no mandate from the people
to rape the supreme court. . . ” in
a radio speech Monday.

Texan Students
Bring Poultry,
Cows To College
Seven hundred students at Texas
A. & M. college are sweeping and
dusting their way through school
in a mass “live at home” coopera

The plan originated in 1932 when
12 boys from one community came
down to set up their own home.
An aunt of one of the boys came
along to be house mother and do
the cooking. One of the boys
brought along two milk cows and
all of the boys were required to
bring four laying hens each.
There are now' 50 such coopera
tive projects, and plans are under
way to encourage local communi
ties to build houses for students
they send to the school.
Harvard Broken Hearts
Harvard seniors have threatened
a “stay-at-home” strike against
girls who habitually break hearts
and then do nothing to mend mat
ters. Romantic affairs have be
come so pressing a problem that
a group of twenty-five of them
banded together as “the Harvard
Society for the Prevention of Bro
ken Hearts.”
This senior class has set a rec
ord for engagements, marriages,
and broken engagements, and even
professors have noted that far
away look in the eyes of most of;
their classes, officials of the new
organization said.
In its manifesto the society!
states: “It; ... is founded in the!
hope of preventing future broken
hearts, especially for seniors, who:
need to have their minds free from
worry in order to study.”
Woman Engineer
Betty Bowman will be the first
woman to complete four years of
an engineering course at the Uni
versity of Nevada. She will be
given her degree this year with
some thirteen men from the Mac
Kay School of Mines, one of the
foremost in the United States.
Miss Bowman has been taking
mining engineering and not allow
ing her sex to make any difference
in any of the requirements that
have to be filled to graduate from
that school. Her specialty is met
allurgy. She has no idea what part
of the world her work will take
her to after graduation.

First Talks Delayed
The first two meetings of the
series were delivered in the early
part of winter term after several
delays caused by sickness and poor

Work Is Started
On Hayward Field
Drive for Funds Resumed
As New Turf Replaces
Sawdust in Arena
Hayward field will have a
springy turf this fall!
Work was started Monday on
the grass in the field where Ore
gon’s football and track teams will
compete next year. Actual scrap
ing of the sawdust covering puts
the University in a class with other
coast schools which have fields or
recently started work on them.
With nearly three-fourths of the
quota of $1750 raised, the turf
field committee heads, Bill Van
Dusen and Dick Watson, are start
ing a final drive to get the entire
sum. ,
Officials in charge of the work
are unable to predict the exact
date that the work will be finished,
but a month-and-a-half at least
will be needed. After the sawdust
covering is removed, squares of
turf from other parts of the cam
pus will be laid down, tamped and
rolled, and the entire area reseed
ed and frequently watered. Great
er expense will be incurred, offi
cials reported, if the present tile
drainage system under the curved'
surface is damaged.

Final Exam Ban
To Be Considered
At Senior Meet
The senior class meeting tonight
in 105 Commerce at 8:30, will take
lip the perennial question of abol
ishing final examinations for grad
uating seniors, according to Mar
gilee Morse, class president.
Miss Morse urged all seniors to
attend, declaring that a resolution
framed on the examination issue
will be offered for the approval of
the assembled class. All fourth
year students may consider them
selves members of the class, she
said, calling attention to the recent
move of the class in abolishing
class dues.
The resolution, drawn up by Dan
El Clark, Jr., and Elaine Cornish,
urges the faculty to excuse gradu
ating seniors who are doing pass
ing work from their finals, calling
attention to difficulties attending
examinations last year, when prof
essors made out double sets of ex
aminations, seniors taking one set
in a compressed, three-day exam
period, and the remainder of the
classes taking their examinations
at the regular time.
Bill Thompson, Phi Sigma Kappa
pledge, who has been confined at
the infirmary for two weeks with
spinal menengitis, is reported to be
showing marked improvement. The
three special nurses working eight
hour shifts have been dismissed.

May Be Postponed to
Following Weekend;
Weather Poor
Negotiations were still under
way last night for the Associated
Students concert and Sigma Delta
Chi dance, featuring Jimmy Dor-,
sey and his Kraft Music hall or
eliestra here next weekend. Diffi
culties arose last Saturday night
when a telegram was received
from Los Angeles stating that
weather conditions on the Califor
nia border made the possibility of
Dorsey's band reaching Eugene
Friday very remote.
Dorsey had planned to fly to
San Francisco after his Thursday
night broadcast in Los Angeles
and come on to Eugene by bus.
Several times this week phone
lines to Los Angeles have been
blown down by blizzards in the
Siskiyous and the bus company
had notified Dorsey a bus might
be turned back by storm.
April 10 Set Aside
Rather than be late for the con
cert Dorsey’s agent wired that a
postponement might be necessary.
April 10 has been reserved on the
social calendar in case Dorsey is
unable to get here April 2.
It was announced that the defi
nite date would be set by noon to
day. Final settlement would be
held off until today to give the
band’s agent time to work out a
sure transportation schedule.
Will Be Announced
If the dance is definitely set for
April 2, announcement will be

Of Easter Worshippers
Extending to 2000 assembled townspeople and students

“The great civilizing force of Christianity lies in its adhesive power.
It is compatible with what we call ‘progress’ today because of its ap

"Happily the old .spiritual seu
