Uncle Sara’s Regrets
For the third time in the last
few months the United States wa=
reprimanded by German diplomats
for a remark of one of its citizens
uncomplimentary toward their
number one Aryan, Adolph Hitler.
The Nazi criticizer this time was
Catholic Archbishop George Cardi
nal Murdelein of Chicago who de
cided the Nazi chief was “'an Aus
^ trian paperhangcr, and a poor one
at that.” Uncle Sam’s regrets will
not be preferred, however, as the
protest of Dr. Hans Thomsen, em
bassy counselor, was informal, no
return being required.
Court’s Future Dim
The name of Arkansas' Senator
Kobinson continued to lead the list
of candidates for Van Devanter's
vacated supreme bench position,
at least according to his colleagues
• in the senate. Roosevelt has as yet
given no indication who will take
over th2 seat of the retiring jurist.
Future of the court reform plan
was still dim. Most senators were
quiet on compromise. Loudest
shout was that of Wheeler, oppo
sition leader, who accused labor
of attempting to get six judges to
pass "whatever kind of labor leg
islation you want.”
Chief Justice Hughes said he
would not retire.
W PA Workers Strike
A raise for WPA mules on a
Washington state project raised
the ire of a dozen workers who
struck for a similar wage increase.
TTpset laborers were pacified by
WPA officials who successfully ar
bitrated the situation. The men re
turned to their jobs.
CIO officials this morning await
ed results on the steel workers’
vote which will decide the fate of
their newest affiliate, the Steel
Workers Organization committee.
Returns will be available today.
The vote was taken Thursday with
20,000 union and non-union em
ployees of the Jones and Laughlin
corporation participating. De
mands of the SWOC will depend
f upon its strength as determined by
the election.
Slang Directory
Reveals College
Youths9 'Lingo9
“I'm takin’ my fever frau to a
cement mixer in a bone crusher.”
This, according to Dean Edward
H. Laurer of the University of
Washington, is the way the modern
college youth talks. Of course,
what the collegiate means to say is
that he is taking his skirt to a
swing fray in a crate.
Perhaps in search of diversion,
Professor Laurer recently complet
ed a United States college campus
slang directory in order that every
one may be in on the secret of how
the typical university student ex
presses himself.
Planks for Politicos
Since platform planks in univer
sity elections are either badly
warped or promptly forgotten after
the ballots have been tabulated,
someone down at the University of
New Mexico suggested that seekers
for office run on a platform such as
"Saturday morning classes must
go. All sorts of queens should be
chosen by a pick-the-number-out
of-the-hat method.
“The meatheads who carry on
these ten-minute bull-sessions in
* the library must be shown no
mercy, and signs of 'Please' should
be replaced by some saying, ‘Come
on! Walk on the grass—NYA stu
dents need the work!’ ”
Problem Is Houses
In the opinion of several promi
nent eastern delegates to the Inter
collegiate Association of Women
Students conference at Los Ange
les, the most important problem in
the life of a modern college girl is
not men or money, but whether to
join a sorority.
“Until recently, the so-called ‘in
ependent’ girl was virtually lost on
most college campuses,” a Cornell
delegate remarked. "She usually
wasn’t popular socially and had al
most no chance to hold any student
office. But that's changing now.”

Coeds Can Crow
As Men Wait for
Girl Dance Bids
“It may be old—but," is the
feeling of the campus coeds when
they ask: “How'd you like to go
to the Mortar Board business
with me May 22?"
If that question doesn’t bring
wreaths and sprays of smiles to
Joes, she continues by explain
that she buys the flowers and
gives them to the man. She buys
the food and lets him eat to his
heart's content. She furnishes
the ticket (only one dollar) and
exchanges the dances with the
most feminine ferns in the house.
Suffragettes (if thee are any
still lingering about) have at
last obtained a great object.
They take the initiative in every
act at this anual ball given by
members of Mortar Board, senior
women's service honorary.
At the dance, the "new deal"
women and the lucky males will
see nineteen freshmen girls
pledged to Kwama and started
on their four years of campus
politics especially handled by
their sex. Skull and Dagger will
also officiate.

Six-Week Tour of Europe [W
For $400 is Planned by
Profesor A.J. Marder
A small group of University students, inspired with the double ob
jective of pleasure and learning, will sail from New York harbor in the
summer of 1938 for a six-week, “on the cheap’’ tour of Europe if
tentative plans announced yesterday by Dr. Arthur J. Marder, profes
sor of history, materialize.
The tour of the continent, the first ever planned at the University,
will carry students to interesting sectors and to the capitals of Europe
tor an approximate total cost of
§400 from Eugene to Eugene, the
author of the idea declared.
Besides the entertainment offer
ed on the trip, lectures and study
of post-war European history with
optional reading will probably be
given. A background in modern
European history would be highly
desirable for those makipg the
trip, he said.
“This tour is designed for the
better students, party personnel
will be exclusive. The trip is not
designed for the wealthy student
but for the student of moderate
means. We’ll see Europe as it is—
it can not be seen through the win
dows of swank hotels, or from
tables in a night club,’’ he empha

their housemother, Mrs. Agnes

at the chapter house Wednesday
evening. Dean Hazel P. Schwering,
Mrs. Alice MacDuff, all Housemo
thers on the campus, and personal
friends, were guests.
Mrs. Beckett had been informed
that the occasion was a rushing
party, and when the guests began
to arrive she was perplexed for a
moment as to how to dismiss them
politely before the rushees arrived.
The guests narrowly escaped hav

planned for the rushees by the
guest of honor.
Absence of Dean Onthank
Prevents Faculty Action
On Welcoming Committee
As yet, no definite action has been taken regarding the welcoming
committee other then its having received President Boyer’s approval.
Dr. Boyer intended to meet and discuss the proposal with Dean James
H. Gilbert and Dean Karl VV. Onthank yesterday, but because Dean
Onthank was called to Portland, no meeting was held.
Dr, Boyer is definitely in favor of the suggested committee. He
believes it will do a great deal towards giving visitors to the campus
better impressions of the Univer
sity. but wishes to go over the
proposal thoroughly before ap
pointing the faculty members who
will head the committee.
Word received from the presi
dent’s office late yesterday after
noon indicated the president would
meet with Dean Gilbert and Dean
Onthank today.
Dean Gilbert, of the college of
social science who proposed the
welcoming committee be made up
: of a chairman, two faculty mem
bers, and ten picked students, be
lieves action should be taken im
mediately so the committee may
begin to function as soon as school
opens in the fall.
The purpose of the committee
will be to arrange definite pro
grams and entertainment for the
different groups and visitors who
come to the campus during the
school year.
President Boyer said, "There is
unquestionably a need for present
ing the University in a more fav
orable light than it has been and
the University has suffered from
the lack of such an organization in
'.the past.’’
