Another Prof Moves On
JN use but two terms under Dean John F.
Bovard, Oregon's new gumnasinm will he a
* monument to his 111 years of service here nil lire
than a milestone in Ihc path which he has
hewn for physical education on the campus.
For Dean Bovard is leaving Oregon in June
—not, necessarily for a position in a better
school hut for a position which will allow him
more time for research in his field.
Oregon's loss again will be another
school’s gain, for Dean Bovard’s record here
lias been one marked by outstanding service
and steady progress, lie came here in 1900,
beginning his work in physical education
when the only forms of activity in that line
were gym classes. Ten years later he became
department head and in 11120 was made dean
of the school of physical education.
The latest and most visible indication of
Dean Bovard's work here is to be seen in the
new gymnasium. Not so easily seen are the
results of his work with the intramural pro
gram, his development of physical education
as vocational work for students and the in
fluences of this in the physical education pro
grams of high schools throughout the state.
Oregon’s intramural program has reached
wide recognition and has been the inspiration
for similar programs in other colleges.
JJOLDING responsible positions on coach
ing staffs and in physical education de
partments throughout the coast area are grad
uates of the vocational school which has been
developed at Oregon, largely through the ef
forts of Dean Bovard. Consistently he,
through the school, has encouraged the dev
elopment of physical programs in secondary
schools throughout the state. Thus the need
for such a program in high schools has parti
ally been satisfied.
Leaving I lie friends and associates which
a person has built up in a 31-year period and
the community ties which naturally develop
is not an easy matter. Dean Bovard believes
that the position which he is accepting at
I'CLA will offer him greater opportunity for
research. Yet it must have taken a tremen
dous inducement to cause him to decide to
leave this Cniversity and the school to which
lie has devoted so many years of his life.
Lull Before the Storm
npilKKIO weeks more, and the campus will
be iu the midst of the campaign preced
ing the ANDO elections. There will be
speeches, ballyhoo, and torchlight parades.
Then1 will be dinners, desserts, and midnight
meetings as the two big factions line up their
tickets. There will be house meetings with
endless discussion. Handshaking, baekslap
pjng, sweet smiles. But one thing there won't
be. and that is the promises of patronage that
have been ;m accepted feature of ASTO elee
There may be promises, but the\ won’t be
worth the paper they've written on or the
breath they re uttered with. Dor. in its action
oi last term, the executive council derailed
the traditional “gravy train.''
No longer does the president of the stu
dent body have the unlimited powers of ap
pointment that in the past have often made
an unprincipled farce ot student government
on this campus. Xu longer can the president
of the student body appoint officers in total
disregard of their competence, merely on the
score of their political support. Next year
and thereafter, unless the by-laws of the con
stitution are unwisely amended in Ibis res
pect, the principal appointive offices will be
under the control of the student executive
* % *
may be over-hopeful. There may be
means of side-stepping the intent of this
reform by political combinations larger and
more powerful than any which student gov
ernment experienced in the past. A large
political combine might gain control of the
executive council through the election of a
straight ticket, a thing which has rarely if
ever occurred in the past. But it is hard to
organize large blocs of the sort necessary for
that eventuality. Blocs must be cemented with
promises of “gravy,” and there isn’t enough
“gravy” to hold a very large one together.
So a subversion of the council reform doesn’t
seem too likely.
Student government should become instill
ed with greater energy under the now system.
In the past—this year is a notable exception—
the work of appointive officers has often been
lacking in vigor and originality, due mostly
to the fact that appointees have had party
loyalty as their greatest merit. In the future,
a higher degree of merit will be called for.
Applicants will file written petitions with the
be called at a late hour and asked if they’d
like to serve. Instead, there will be published
notice that this or that position is to be filled.
Applicants will file written petitions with the
executive council; and later they will be
called in for personal interviews in which
their plans and their capabilities will be given
a thorough going-over.
With the fore-knowledge that committee
appointees have carefully worked-out plans
which lliey are capable of putting into effect,
students may look for a great deal of new
freshness and energy in the conduct of ASUO
BILLIONS FOR DEFENSE
Ominous indications that the United States
may join the impending world naval race are em
anating from Washington. Although the White
House and the Navy Department are noncommit
tal, Admiral Leahy, Chief of Naval Operations,
believes that this country will match Britain's
newest additions, just as it did her two battleships
of last January.
To pursue such a policy would be one more
mad move in this insane struggle for armament
supremacy. The United States is not forced by
partical necessity to spend $5,000,000 every work
ing day as England intends to do during the ne t
The three principle incentives for naval arma
ment are conquest, prestige and security. The
first of these is lacking in the case of a satisfied
Power such as this nation. The second, in the
sense of war strength, is a hollow objective for a
nation desiring to avoid circumstances in which
prestige is valuable; more desirable is the reputa
tion of an uneontcsted leadership in pursuits
worthier than battleship building.
Japan Only Menacing Power
This leaves for consideration the desire for
security, both territorial and commercial. Of the
Powers needing territory, only Japan is considered
potentially menacing. Defense of our continental
possessions, including Alaska, is most effective by
land, not sea. Insularly, we are hardly vulner
able: Hawaii would not satisfy our Western neigh
bor, and British interests can be relied upon to
check any move towards the south and Philippines.
But Japan, like the United States, would not con
sider either of our Pacific possessions worthy a
Our world commercial interests arc equally
chimerical insofar as the general welfare is con
cerned. Our overseas trade in the best years is
less than 1(V; of our total trade; only a third of
this is carried in American bottoms. We learned
in 1917 what it costs to protect these "rights."
Today, everyone who remembers that lesson agrees
that embargoes are the cheapest, if not the sole,
way of avoiding the next holocaust.
Cries for naval armaments, then, are nothing
but the amplified voice of a group of tradesmen
who would risk all for the hope of profits. In
England, where life itself depends upon free sea
lanes, such cries are much nearer the public in
terest. it is our good fortune to be spared the
necessity of matching the largest navy in the
world in order to insure our national existence.
Until the day when we can rightly consider our
selves imperiled, let us stop tilting with windmills
and turn our resources to happier and more
