Pacifism Plus Realism
pacifists being more sensitive
souls than the average student, who is
lamentably thick-skinned to the ills of his
country and the world, they must have left
their strike meeting yesterday with their ears
burning. For Raymond L. Buell, the speaker
they chose to deliver the main address, turned
a bucket of cold logic over the views held by
the I 'diversity’s dominant group of peace
lovers, who had hoped their views might be
the key-note of the demonstration.
Mr. Buell argued for the constructive
form of pacifism which the Fmerald—pardon '•
our modesty—lias endeavored to support in
the past few weeks. Contradicting a sign
borne by one enthusiast, which said “There is
no such thing as a good war or a bad peace,’’
the internationalist declared the distinction
between war and peace to be meaningless.
We are living in a system, he said, in which
a mere negative approach to the problem of
war will be unavailing. If we are going to
prevent, war, we cannot simply say “1 won’t
light’’ and expect our voice to be effective.
If peace is to be achieved and maintained, the
world must be reorganized for social and eco
nomic justice, tlu- lack of which is the under
lying cause of war. Talk of peace which does
n’t include this undertaking is senseless.
Mr. Buell showed a view of war and peace
that is sane and constructive, lie excavated
the deeper causes of war and told what actu
ally must be done to promote peace. And
that, to us. constitutes the very opposite from
the misty idealism of adherents to the Oxford
pledge. Mr. Buell is possessed of idealism,
too, but his is of a realistic, practical sort.
# *
{j^OM KTII INC! should probably be said of the
way the crowd received Mr. Buell’s
speech. We were standing in the back row
and had a chance to look over the whole as
semblage, and we must remark that there was
a great variety of attention given the speaker.
A substantial share of the group was really
interested in what he had to say, and stood
motionless, watching and listening. But, in
terspersed through the crowd, was a broad
scattering of gigglers and gossipers, who ap
parently had come more out of curiosity than
from a sincere interest in the occasion. Most
remarkable of all, however, was the inatten
tion on the part of those whom we have come
to regard as the leading figures in the campus
peace movement. They threaded constantly
through the spectators with obviously more
concern for the scene that might be created
by the placards which they bore, or which
they were trying to urge onlookers to carry,
than for what the speaker was saying.
Of course, what these pacifist leaders had
in mind was to create a militant enthusiasm
for their cause. But, in their methods, what
they were really doing was to repel possible
converts. For they showed no understanding
of the psychology of the average student.
They didn’t realize that the average person
wants to be as much like everyone else as he
possibly can. and consequently avoids such
things as might cause him to he branded
“radical ’ or unusual.
* * #
jpKO.M a tactical point of view, that is the
greatest fault in the type of pacifism ex
pressed on this campus. The ideology is too
esoteric, too incomprehensible to the minds
of the great number of students, who regard
such stuff as they might the worship of
Vishnu. In fact, the movement does smack too
much of culfishness. Probably !)!l per cent of
the students on this campus are opposed to
war, and, theoretically they should be con
vertible to pacifism. But they won't be en
listed to a kind of pacifism that calls for such
“screwy” things as waving placards, “strik
ing.’’ adhering to the Oxford pledge, and
“fasting for Spain.” If an effective move
ment against war is ever to be organized, if
those who are sincerely desirous of peace
are ever to be actively and unitedly engaged
to action, then pacifism must be divested of
all the sentimental and emotional trimmings
from which the hard-thinking, ordinary per
son rebels.
Campus Comment
(The views aired in this column are not necessarily
expressive of Emerald policy. Communications should be
kept within a limit of 250 words. Courteous restraint should
be observed in reference to personalities. No unsigned letters
will be accepted.)
To the Editor: I heartily agree with my friend
“J. L." in the fact that something ought to be done
about the "O" on Skinner's Butte. But as nothing
has been done yet, it will be up to the freshmen to
preserve the old tradition of painting the “O” dur
ing Junior weekend.
Last year only one freshman took the slippery
trip down the letter’s smooth surface. What a.
thrill this lad got when he left the smooth con
crete and landed on some jagged rocks! J. L. was
right when he said “lots of our freshmen would
get a thrill from sliding on some fresh, yellow
This year, however, with a little previous ar
rangement, the freshmen may once more slide
one by one down the “O" in a foam of yellow paint.
My advice to the freshman class is that they either
file down the rough, abrupt ending of the slide,
or that they eliminate a few of the jars by piling
up some old mattresses, blankets, or other spoils
from the spring house-cleaning. Go to it, frosh!

Trial of Mrs. Violet Norton, who
accuses Clark Gable of being the

yesterday, with Mrs. Norton re
affirming her charge that Gable
is the man. Noting that “love chil
dren are like the father" she point
ed out many similarities between
Cubic and Gvendoline, including
the way they milk cows.
Balanced Budget—\<>.f
A radical return to pre-depres
sion government financial policies
was suggested yesterday by Sena
tor Byrnes who proposed a 10 per
cent cut of 1938 appropriations,
reduction of the budget $400,000,
000 and balance for the first time
since Hoover's administration.
Byrnes also would slash the $1,
500,000,000 relief bill down a cool
half billion, making a total cut of
$900,000,000. Opinion on white
house sentiment differed. Agri
culture leaders decried economy
which would curtail farm relief.

(Continued from pjge one)
Bean John F. Bovard of the phys
ical education school, and Dean
James H. Gilbert of the college of j
social science, and tire manager of
Uie store is Marion McClain.
Mr. McClain will submit a finan
cial report of the store, and an
swer questions members of the
store might ask.
The co-operative store was orig
inally purely co-operative, in that
every student paid dues to belong
to it, and got a refund on all pur
chases. Because many students
'liglil/rtil nuvtnp' i »* r.-*«
changed, and all students became
members without paying dues.
Profits from the business were
supposed to be used to lower prices
of student supplies and books. This
plan is followed today.
The constitution of the store
prescribes that two candidates
must be nominated for each board
position to be filled, and anyone
registered in the University is eli
gible to nominate candidates.

policy of the United States, Eng
land, and other nations, as well as
the nazi - fascist powers for the
present situation, and prophesied
that the threatened war could yet
be staved off.
Great Britain, in his opinion, had
stabilized the European situation
by rearming, thereby forcing the
totalitarian powers to listen to her
once more. Mr. Buell deplored this
rearming when its cost might have
been devoted to the betterment of
the suffering lower strata of hu
manity, but conceded that it had
worked, while negative pacifism
would have been futile.
Mar Aversion Possible
It was the speaker's belief that
war could be averted barring acci
dents. Germany, he explained, was
not ready at present for hostilities;
she wa; short of officers and eco
nomically below par. In the mean
time, he declared, the democratic
powers had their opportunity to
enter into negotiations with the
have-not powers Germain. Italy
and Japan to give them their eco
nomic necessaries.
This, in Mr. Buell's opinion,
would mean the dawn of a new
day in world relations.
Interest in the speaker s remarks
was noted in the faculty group at
the Ol'tsVif tv- .if I... Un.i.lr.iH. '
odd students present. Noted on the
fringe were Dr. Janies H. Gilbert,
professor of economics, who listen
ed intently to economic views
somewhat resembling his own: Dr.
Victor I'. Morris, dean of business,
who discusses similar issues in his
course on war and peace; Dr. R. C.
Clark and Dr. Dan E. Clark of the
history department.
The organizations w h i c h are
members of the student peace
committee are American Student
Union, Baptist Young People’s Un

AT the University of California
the other day less than 3000
students participated in student
body elections. Unless my arithme
tic fails me that's approximately
twenty per cent of the enrollment
of 15,000 there. AH of which proves
concdusively the vital importance
of campus politics and its place in
the educational system.
Next fall the young man on the
Cal campus will be able to strut
around and get his name in the
papers no end. He may even get a
chance to go to a convention of
similar stooges and there prove
what a thoroughly bad speaker he

Here on the Oregon campus the
proposal for representative elec

something, is looked upon as a
right noble advance. It supposedly
would cooperate with some by-law

remark that if that’s gravy it

Edgeworth Guarantees that Process

TONGUE BITE is the bane of
pipe smokers. We guarantee that
Edgeworth will not bite the tongue.
The use of the finest Burley to

It’s the processing that does it. As
every tobacco expert knows, pipe

It is pipe tobacco, but it is not
Our method is Process-Aging—a
process as vital as the aging of old
wines. There are twelve required
steps, each under laboratory control.
It takes 4 to 7 times as long as might
seem necessary. But in no other way
can we guarantee that Edgeworth
will not bite the tongue.
We ask you to try it under our
money-back guarantee. If Edge

NOTE: There are three kinds of
Edgeworth for you to choose from:
1—Edgeworth Rcady-Rubbcd—a
