Girls Rushed By Old Phi Phi; On Wrong Lists By BERNADINE BOWMAN The fraternity rushing season at the University of Pennsylvania has broken all precedents for novel, unusual tactics. At the be ginning of the season two coeds’ names were placed mistakenly but quite officially on the university fraternity pledging lists. The Greeks lost no time in initiating the most intensive rushing pro gram in a long time. The girls were wined and dined and told of the glories of old Phi Phi fratern ity. From every side they were be seeched to “join with the brothers; you won't go wrong.” Einstein Is 4 All Star’ Interested in all-star selections in the field of sports, professors at the University of Pennsylvania decided to pick a ten-man squad that would represent the “all stars” of history in every field of human endeavor. The list contain ed the names of Dr. Albert Ein stein. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Da Vinci, Shakespeare, Newton, Darwin, and Pasteur. Einstein is the only living all-star. Deficiencies Indicated The 1937 undergraduate has jerky reasoning, quarrels with re ligion, gains nothing from lectures, is dispassionate and animalistic, and cherishes a planned loneliness, according to the McGill Daily. A recent editorial in that Cana dian university daily states that “he knows his way around in the intellectual world and has plodded along the path of determined pri vate thought. But his reasoning is jerky, and his mental interests have not yet accumulated a weight of stability. GRIFFITH TO CONCLUDE George E.

UO Students to Join Nation-Wide Protest Against War Today Steps of Old Libe Meeting Flaee at 11 For Annual Strike; Noted Leaders of Movement to Be Heard The historic steps of the old library furnishes the scene this morning for a drama which will be enacted on hundreds of campuses across the entire continent. When 11 o’clock class bells ring from coast to coast one million students will lay aside bocks and assemble for the annual strike against war. At Ore gon it is officially a “protest,” but the unity of the nation-wide walkout will be felt as speakers from other student bodies bring messages of similar action. A lark for some, an interesting hour for others, and an ex pression of deep conviction for still others, the protest and strike will feature two prominent speakers — Raymond L. Buell, president of the Foreign Policy association, and Prof. F. B. Farqu harson, University of Washington. Charles Paddock, chairman of the sti'ike committee, will speak on "Fascism.” Harold Barton will de fend the pacifist position. Gray Skies Forecast The sky will probably be gray, the weatherman forecasts, but col or will not be lacking. Literally hundreds of banners, slogans, plac ards and signs, of all hues and all descriptions, will dot the crowd. No two sponsoring organizations have identical peace programs, with the result that slogans will reflect at least a half-dozen dif ferent points of view on the road to peace. Mingling in the crowd will be the student body of University high school, one of the protest’s sponsors. Also in the congregation will be many curious townspeople. Around the fringes, news photo graphers, reporters, amateur snap shotters, and, perhaps, a few heck lers, will indulge their interest in the colorful demonstration. The University’s public address system, mounted at the head of the library steps, will bring speak ers’ words clearly and forcibly to the assemblage. Promptly at 11, Gilbert Schultz, student body presi dent, is scheduled to call the crowd to order, make student body an nouncements, and step aside for the barrage of speaking. Pep and celerity will mark the assembly. The speakers will follow one an other in rapid-fire fashion with no pause for introductions.

Trend of Pacifistic Thought During Last 20 Years Told By Dean Morris, Dr. Moore Opinions in regard to peace problems and the trend of pacifistic thought of the present day world were brought out in interviews yes terday with Dean Victor P. Morris of the business administration | school and Dr. E. If. Moore of the sociology department. Dean Morris said that sentiment in favor of world peace and a deter mination to do hard thinking and planning is stronger today than it was before the world war because of the lesson this disaster has taught the nations of the world during the last twenty years. Pacifism Becomes Militant Mr. Moore agreed with this statement but believes that paci fism during the past 20 years has become more militant. Formerly, he pointed out, pacifism was an in tellectual, academic question, ra ther than an organized movement relying upon enthusiasm. He showed how the nation-wide stu dent strike against war was a typical example of the modern militant type of pacifism. Both professors agreed that paci (Please turn to page two) 3 Students to Represent Oregon at Science Meet Thurston Skei, Gordon W.

Talks on Youth Close Two-Day PEA Meeting ‘Lost Generation' After Depression Gives Rise To Diffienlties, Says Child Educator Concluding: with an afternoon general session at which Dr. Ralph Tyler, chairman of the evaluations committee of the Progressive Education association, spoke on "Significant Developments in Cur riculum Experiments in Secondary Schools,” the two-day conference of the northwest section of the association ended yesterday. Most significant of the problems of modern educators to be present ed at the conference was that of the effect of the depression of vouth. according to Dr. Caroline Zachry, chairman of the commit tee on the study of adolescents. Society Molds Youth "The depression has left in its wake a 'lost generation’ of youth in even sorrier straits than after the world war,” she told a 9 a.m. sectional meeting. “The problem of adolescent youth as a result of the depression is exactly opposite from what it was after the war. Society, in accordance with its needs, decides what role youth is to play.” sne pointed out mat a program flexible enough to cover individual cases of meeting life should be started in all schools. Dr. Tyler, in his morning sec tional meeting, pointed out that observation by the teachers and use of questionnaires are two sub stitutes for examinations to deter mine the development of a child. This talk was an enlargement on yesterday’s talks about the elim ination of examinations as one phase of progressive education. Individual Attention Stressed Dr. Carson Ryan, president of the association, stated that educa tion is more a problem of indi vidual attention than general j standardized courses. He enlarged on this idea, one of the foremost aims of progressive education, in j a 9 a.m. sectional meeting in which Dr. George Frazier also spoke on \ “Initiating a P. E. Program.” Dr. Frazier advanced the theory that progressive education is a way of living, rather than an “administra tive device.” At the 10:30 a.m. sectional meet ings, Dr. Daniel Precott, profes sor of mental hygiene at Rutgers, stated that the behavior of child ren is motivated by attitudes and personality needs, and not instinct or inheritance, as is commonly be lieved. Emphasizing the point that movements for world peace and tolerance should be practically taught in primary and secondary grades of public schools, Dr. Rach el DuBois, of the association's com mittee of international relations, stated that, “It should be the duty of every classroom to work direct ly on the students to lessen the tensions between racial groups.” Music Honorary To Give Musicale At Gerlinger Hall Tau Delta Delta, local women’s music honorary, will present a musicale tea in the alumni room of Gerlinger at 4 o’clock May 2, it was announced yesterday by Janr> Hall, general chairman.

List Reduced By LLOYD TUPLING (Emerald News Editor) Campus politicians, meeting- last night to reduce the list of possible candidates for the coming ASUO elections, expressed mild approval of the newly-adopted ASUO executive committee plan for proportional representation, but sighted the possibil ity of a break-UD appearing in the ranks of the “unite the campus’’ coalition set-un. Fear was expressed that because the election reform prevents a nominee from running for a specific office in the executive committee, individual houses would rally forces around candidates from their own houses. Theoretically, the new system places all nominees up for student body president. In selecting' one group of nominees the coalition group is now faced with the possi bility of the theory becoming real ity, with all candidates they have selected organizing forces to push election to student body president. Each Man a Party Instead of a united coalition group, the politicians who have worked for two months to establish a single ticket ballot are now faced with possibility of having a separ ate party for each nominee they select. Taking into consideration the desire most living organiza tions have for a student body of ficer in the house, the possibility shows a chance of beconiing ef fective unless a gentlemen’s agree ment is reached. Politicians Express Views Politicians questioned last night expressed varied opinions on the newly-adopted measure. "I can't see that it makes any change in the system, although it prepares for the future. I don’t be lieve the campus in general will comprehend it,” Charles Irwin, ATO representative at the meeting declared. “What I hope it doesn't do is to throw campus politics back as it (Please turn ta pane turn) Students to Stage Walkout Over New Regulations A mass walkout of the entire student body of 2200 is threat- j ened in the Boise high school as students protest attempts of school officials to regulate their private as well as school lives.

He might be called a “dognapper”. He might, in fact, be called any one of a number of things at tonight’s Moot Court trial in the circuit court room of the Lane county court house. The purported facts of the case upon which Hizzoner Hollis will render a decision are: Mr. Yturri, while driving an automobile in an easterly direction on 15th avenue in the City of Eugene, between Kincaid and Alder streets, on March 7, 1937, traveling at an ap proximate speed of 30 miles an hour, ran over Mr. Hale Thomp son’s dog, a very valuable canine ! and one which Mr. Thompson was quite fond of. ' Mr. Yturri himself, it would ap : pear, took an immediate liking to the dog. For, upon making contact with the canine, he quickly stopped his car, picked up the wounded animal, deposited.same in his car. and drove home. The dog died eight days later. Now the grieved and much be reaved Mr. Thompson has retained Messrs. Edward McKeon and Ron Rew, attorneys at law, and his in structed them to bring action against Mr. Yturri if, in their opin ion, such action can be successfully maintained. Messrs. Chester An derson and William Martin are counsel for the defendant. Others taking part in tftnight’s trial are: Mr. Arvin Robb, bailiff notary; Mr. Robert Miller, clerk; Mr. Harry McCall, reporter-sheriff. Messrs. Herb Skalet, Hale Thomp son, and Tom Tongue are witnesses for the plaintiff and Messrs. Orval | Thompson, Keith Wilson, and Tony Yturri will take the stand for the defendant. This will be the second of a ser ies of six moot court trials to be held at 7:30 each Thursday night by third year law students in trial practice. The public is invited. Warren D. Smith Receives Offer Dr. Warren D. Smith, of the geology department of the Univer sity of Oregon, has recently receiv ed an offer from the Adamson School of Industrial Chemistry and Engineering to become a professor in the mining engineering depart ment. The school is a private insti tution located in the Philippine Islands. The school year starts June 21, 1937, and because of the fact that he is committed to certain other work during the summer, he can not accept. One year from now, when Dr. Smith’s leave is due, he may go over for only one year, if he is not otherwise employed. Dr. Smith’s particular purpose in going to the islands would be to revise his book, "Geology and Min eral Resources of the Philippine Islands," which was published in 1925. Dr. Smith was in charge of government geological work in the Philippine Islands for many years.

Sweeping Measure Cuts Out ‘Gravy’ in Student Government; Ballots To Show Choices Minority Has Voice Elected Candidates True Representatives, Says Barney Hall ASUO officers, up for election May 6, will be selected by propor tional representation operating un der a preferential voting system as I be result of a meeting of an ASUO executive committee yester day where unanimous approval was stamped on the reform movement. The plan is the second sweeping measure adopted by the group in an effort to eliminate "political gravy” in student government. The reform was proposed to comple ment ft recently-adopted by-law which took major student body ap pointments out of the hands of the student body president and vested tlie selections in the executive com mittee. Hall Heads Committee Under the new plan, submitted by a self-appointed committee headed by Barney Hull, candidates will not he nominated for specific office. Nominees will run for of fices in the executive committee in general, and positions they receive will be an expression of the elec torates’ choice. Mathematically, the election re form will insure minority groups I of a representative on the ASUO executive committee. Under the old voting system two contenders headed party line-ups for the of fice of student body president, both men were considered capable for the positions but because of the “majority rules” voting system one man was eliminated. Barney Hall, creator of the plan said last night. The voice of both parties will be insured in the government instead of only the winning voice as for merly, he pointed out. Plan Explained A simplified explanation of the plan is ((noted in the editor ial columns of today’s paper from Crawford’s “Readings in American Government.” At the executive committee meeting, members discussed the measure after reading the con tents of the eight-page proposal twice. A unanimous vote placed the measure in the ASUO by-laws as an amendment to the former voting system. The proposal was the result of a study made by a student com mittee made up of Barney Hall, Bill Pease, executive committee member, Gayle Buchanan, AWS president, and Fred Colvig, Em erald editor.
