German Property Rights
New civil laws which will prac
tically abolish private property
rights were announced by Nazi of
ficials yesterday, as the Hitler re
gime marched forward in plans to
put interests of the slate above
individuals. Through a planned
gradual introduction the new codes
will supplant present civil law giv

Inheritance, status of Jews,
rights of parents over hildren, pro
perty ownership, and relationship
between workers and factories will
be radically changed. The new laws
are already in partial operation and
will gradually be extended to sup
plant the present system.
Folly on FooFs Day
With the lapsing of the last in
ternational agreement regulating
naval armaments last night at
midnight, threat of a naval race
became a veal possibility. Size of
guns, up to yesterday limited at i
34 inches, brought fears that larg- !
er ships would be built to accomo- j
date 60-foot, 16-inch weapons.
Labor, Capital Bicher
Strike of 400,000 mine workers
hung- over the heads of conferees
attempting to draw up a new con
tract to replace the present one
which expires at midnight tonight.
Unions said they would leave work
if agreement was not reached.
At the same time Congress con
tinued the labor argument, Sena
tor Wagner declaring that a “few
great corporations” were the cause
of sitdowns. Representative Dies
answered with the hackneyed
charge of communistic planning of
the recent labor troubles.
Unman Frailty in Justice
Two more senators were inspired i
to oratory yesterday by the su
preme court reversal, Minton of
Indiana complaining that justice
was dependent upon the “human
frailty of a single judge.” Wash
ington’s Senator Schwellenbach
likened the power of Justice Rob
erts, who was the margin in the
women’s minimum wage decision,
to that of a “Mussolini.”

U W Adopts Plan
For Improved
Faculty Advice
The University of Washington
has adopted a new plan whereby
faculty guidance in registration is
compulsory. Under the new pro
gram all students must plan a
year’s schedule of courses with
the approval of a faculty member
of his major department. The
schedule must be arranged before
the student may register for fall
From April 1 to 23 the advisors
for each department in the univer
sity will be available for counsel.
The students are responsible for
securing their own conferences.
The new plan is designed to eli- ]
minate hurriedly-planned schedules
and poorly-selected courses.
Police Tags Raise Riot
USC students answered the at
tempt of police -to tag student

thoroughfare by staging a minor
riot one morning a week ago.

climbed on the police-car running
boards and jumped up and down,
others let the air out of official

W i n't ejr • Recreational
Facilities Well-Liked
A twenty percent Increase in
the number of participants in
men’s physical education during
the winter term was reported yes
terday by Dean John F. Bovard.
“We have had to add more help
in the basket room to take care of
the 350 additional baskets, which
made about 1350. Of course that
number will drop off during spring
term, but the recreational activi
ties are just as busy. For instance,
last Saturday, I would estimate
there were about 200 men using
school facilities and the fly-cast
ing class at the same time. This
increased interest in the school’s
physical education program shows
that the students appreciate the
new facilities and well rounded
recreational program.”
Dr. Bovard expressed his reluct
ance to leave the University
faculty to take his new position
of professor of physical education
with the University of California,
at Los Angeles. He will specialize
there in training graduates in phy
sical education teaching,' a field
in which he has long been inter
ested. His research work in this
field has resulted in many articles
published in vocational magazines.

The grim reality of war today found the University of Oregon mobi

Definite Plans for April 22
Walkout to Be Made;
Six Groups Represented
Oregon’s central strike commit
tee will meet this afternoon to de
cide whether or not a strike will
actually be held April 22. The com
mittee, organized a week ago to
plan the strike, adopted in toto the
national strike call but tabled the
motion that it be called a strike
when some objection arose.
Faced with the possibility of a
strike committee deciding not to
strike, liberal students are rally
ing sentiment to guarantee a local
demonstration against war which
will follow that being staged by
students on many other campuses.
Majority sentiment at the first
committee meeting seemed to |
favor a strike, although a sub
sequent meeting with faculty rep
resentatives showed the adminis
tration not too friendly to the
idea, according to Charles Pad
d’ddk, student strike leader.
Most of the organizations re
presented on the central strike
committee specifically instructed
their delegates to vote and work
for a strike. Organizations now
represented are the American stu
dent union, Student Christian
council, Wasley foundation, West
minster association, YMCA, and
YWCA. Baptist students will de
cide whether or not to join this
week. Representatives of the high
schools are also attending commit- |
tee meetings although neither of
them yet have definite permission
to strike.
The committee will meet at 5

Hearing This Afternoon
President Eayer’s Treason Board

were brought in last night as a
result of the first raid conducted
by the League Against Radicalism

the president said, is empowered to
impose its own discipline.
Following the raids the local

Plan for Pre-Rush
Week Undecided
Loss of Week of Vaealion
Is Chief Opposition;
Also Added Expense
“Pan-Hellenic’s pre-rush week
plan, which has been worked on
and talked about during the last
two months, will be a hard one to
put over but I feel a successful
one when put into operation,”
stated Mrs. F. M. Hathaway, presi
dent of the alumnae advisors, Mon
day afternoon.
“The chief opposition to the
plan, as voiced by women of the
individual sorority houses, is the
loss of a week of vacation. This
will affect all women who work
during the summer,” Mrs. Hatha
way continued.
“In the beginning, there will al
so be an added expense to the
houses, but this will be cared for
as the plan progresses. The Uni-,
versities of Washington and Cali
fornia, who have put into practice
this pre-rush week plan have
found it to work out this way. At
present the plan is so successful
that they would not restore the
old method for any reason,” she
Several other women of the
campus, in opposing the plan, sug
gested that freshman women like
to have rush week during the
week of exams and preliminary
work, she added.
"It seems to give the houses a
topic for discussion during their
rushing and gives the rushees the
idea that college is not all social
activities,” Mrs. Hathaway con
The alumnae group plan to do
HO more work on this unless called
oh by the active council. The coun
cil is yet undecided as to its decis
ion, but will take a stand one way
or the other before the new rush

Genevieve McNiece, out-going
president of Pan-Hellenic.

Libe Group Stalled
On Moving Books
Several Plans Offered;
Solution to Be Sought
At Meeting Today
Unable to reach a decision as to
the advisability of moving into the
new library immediately, the li
brary committee at a meeting yes
terday afternoon decided to further
discuss the various plans offered
for consideration today.
Among the plans suggested was
that of declaring a Roman holiday
and in a concentrated period do all
the moving. Dr. H. B. Yocum ad
vocated that if moving be done it
be complete, arguing that a short
disturbance would be less detri
mbental than a continual moving.
Moving by sections with advanc
ed notice being posted as to what
material could be found in the
different buildings was given as a
possible plan. Because this plan
would necessitate a full staff at
each library another suggestion
was that only one building be open
to the students but that messenger
service be installed and books al
ready moved to the new library
could be received on demand. As
the majority of books are moved
to the new libe it could be opened
and service reversed.

The academic council yesterday

The proposal was referred to the
faculty rather than to a commit

latter case students might think
the matter "pigeon-holed" and be

it, according to C. Valentine Boyer,
president of the University.
The petition presented by the
aenior class to the council calls
for the exemption of graduating
seniors from final examinations,
providing that professors may at
their own discretion give hour ex
aminations in the regular class
periods if thought necessary. Ex

courses in which comprehensive

Sweet Death Asked by
Spring Cold Sufferer
Thousands of people die every year with spring colds. They are the
lucky ones. Other thousands live on, hoping for death but, because
of the tenaciousness of the breed, continuing to exist with clogged nos
trils and rasped throats.
Air, when obtained at all by these sufferers, must be dragged through
the wide-open oral cavity by the heels. The noise, on this occasion, is
that of a passionate horse with asthma.
When one gets a cold at the University of Oregon one goes to the
dispensary under the impression
that a panacea awaits within its
door-checked portals.
