$500,000 for Science Ought to Reassure OSC
npHE fiction taken by the slate board 01
higher education in 'approving plans for
financing a half million dollar science build
ing fit Oregon State college and for rebuilding
the present science structure should reassure
the Oregon State Barometer and the Corvallis
Last weekend both the Corvallis paper
and the student daily printed and commented
on an interview obtained by a Eugene Daily
News reporter with President-Klee) Donald
M. Ki'b. Through some flaw of interpretation
of the News’ story, both construed Dr. Krb s
statements as an opening gnu in a campaign
to obtain the transfer of the science school to
the Tbiiversify of Oregon. The, Barometer
headline read (Friday) “President Krb De
mands Return of Science School to Eugene.
Since the state board’s current meeting
produced no such demand and did bring to
light a plan, long conceived, to const met a
new science building at DSC, the fears ex
pressed by both papers should now be east
aside as unfounded.
■» * «■
nPlIE statement attributed to President Krb
voiced a conviction long held by students,
faculty, and supporters of the Cijtversily
when it said be desired the return ol science
to this campus.
It was not bis intention, and it has not
been the intention of those interested in Ihe
University who have hoped for the return
without taking any definite action to secure
it, to lake anything from Oregon State col
Oregon is almost fully equipped to handle
upper-division science. It has, in ollering
lower division, the staff and equipment neces
sary. A small appropriation would permit a
degree to be offered in pure science here.
That was the “return" of which Dr. Krb
spoke and the “return for which I diversity
friends Imve lor so long neon noping. 11 m
volves in now way the school ill Corvallis, nor
would it del raid from its school of science
there in any way.
rp|[].] TTniversily is always glad to see Ore
* gon Stale, its sister institution, moving
ahead. In reality, the two schools are in com
petition only for students and the line drawn
between them is such that the educational
training each oilers is far different Ilian tin*
other's. It would he an advantage to the slide
and the state system if Oregon, .just as every
other university in the I niled States does,
could offer the student who is interested in
pure science and university training n degree
from the Cniversity in 1 hut field. In this sense
there is “duplication” in many instances
without altering the fact OSC is an agricul
tural mid technical college and Oregon is a
slate university.
KCAHSIO this is 1 rue and because certain
courses of a basic nature must be given
at both institutions if over-simplification with
in the system is not to defeat its own ends,
the two schools are not in competition.
The new science building, if the plans for
raising lunds the board has approved aie
culminated, will naturally strengthen Oregon
education a great deal. For this reason every
supporter of Oregon education, no matter
what his background or connections, is glad
to see it I bus far successful.
Oregon State and Oregon have much to
be gained by working in concert. They have
much to lose if anything in the way of petty
rivalries and jealousies-—excluding, of course,
a healthy rivalry in sports and other fields—•
•ire permitted to flourish. It is good that a
fcoling seems to exist here that a step forward
for one cog in the state system is a step for
ward for all.
The Proposed Tuition Increase
PRESS services Tuesday nig)j(t carried
stories that the state hoard had heard a
motion to jump tuition to from +10 to $1-.
Several members id' the hoard were definitely
opposed to the increase. The motion was re
ferred to Chancellor Frederick M. Hunter tor
his eonsideration.
Now most students consider the entire
amount they pay at the beginning of the term
as “tuition.” Few realize that actually only
$10 of their $:il.f>() (or thereabouts) goes for
tuition. Many interpreted the stories which
appeared in The Kmerald <il Wednesday and
in oilier papers as indicating the hoard was
eontmeplatin”' an increase of between +10
and +12.
Actually the motion was designed to raise
the total of fees by a much more modest sum
+2. It would move tuition paid from +10
the present figure, to +12. It did not intend
to raise the total by +10 or +12.
Judging from the opposition the motion
immediately met, the possibility of even a +2
increase being acceptable to the board seems
Strange Land
(German Exchange Student)
All the German exchange stu
dents get a typographed letter
each month, written by them
and for them. Today the Janu
ary issue arrived and it put the
question before us how we the
German exchange students in
U. S. A. would discuss the slo
gan that we hear so often:
America is a real democracy.
To answer this question one
has to enter slippery soil. It is
a venture. It is impossible to
approach this difficult problem
in a column like this with sci
entific thoroughness. However,
we will try our best, even
though we as a foreigner do
not have the right to make def
inite statements on what Amer
ica is or seems not to be. We
have seen and heard Americans
making bold statements about
Germany. We listened to them
though we got mad sometimes.
Please listen to this and don’t
get mad before the second read
ing. Anglo-Saxons have an ad
mirable disposition. They have
made for themselves certain
conceptions on political and
historical problems and defy
everybody who does not fit into
this God-given as they believe
—pattern. Their good fortune
is, that they can put across
such conception with an admir
able air of world-wide under
standing and reasoning. It
seems so natural that everybody
accepts the statement as it
stands in Anglo-Saxon minds.
If a German fixes himself on
an idea he does not try to con
vince his opponent by shrewd
and prudent persuasion, making
him glide iuto new beliefs by
degrees—a German states his
ideas blunderingly anil directly.
Tlie effect is: one speaks of him
in terms of "engaging frank
ness" if one is polite or
"brutal naivete.” The effect is
in America: German ideas are
considered as propaganda
American ideas as world-wide
contributions to humanity.
American capital exploits China
for decades and it is said to
be for the sake of an imaginary
"open door." Germany makes
a naval-treaty with England,
limiting her strength to one
third of the British and it is
termed another step in "black
mailing the British tories into
the arms of German imperial
In short: America makes good
propaganda among Americans
and Germany makes good pro
paganda among the Germans.
And never the twain seem to
meet in good-will.
It is worthwhile, therefore, to
scrutinize the phrase: America
is a real democracy. What do
you mean by democracy ? The
rule of a country by the people
for the people. Granted. Is the
people ruling ruling in Amer
ica? Or is the accumulated
wealth ruling the people? And
suppose that the people are rul
ing are they ruling for the
people ? Or for one section of a
people at a time? Is the press
ruled by capital or is the press
making the capitalistic taicoons
into honest businessmen? You
can add more and more ques
tions of this type.
You can't answer with an
honest yes or no. You have to
agree that there are as many
problems as questions. You will
finally say: America is in the
eyes of many Americans a real
democracy. You will further
more promise yourself to help
everybody who wants to make
America a better country, where
a people lives that is happy and
content. All I as a German
ask of you now, is to apply all
these limitations to Germany.
We think Germany is a real
democracy because we trust in
our leaders. We gave them a
mandate. They are executives
of the will of the people.
If we find fault with certain
methods, applied by the Ger
man government, we will do our
best to change them in time.
Germany just went through a
revolution. Give her time. We
will not always fit perfectly
into Anglo-Saxon patterns, but
all of you may be assured
we will do the best we can to
have intelligent rulers. Ameri
cans, look at America first! L>o
not try to start a crusade
against Germany. Do not al
ways try to imply that we
the "Fascists," as you call us
intend to make a war to keep
the eyes of the German people
away from interior trouble.
Prevent those American leaders
who intend to wage a war on
Fascism in order to close the
eyes of America from seeing the
troubles in America prevent
those Americans from success.
Clean America first! And
Germans will study the condi
tions in this country with eager
ness to learn from your meth
ods. Let us get out of the
spiritual isolation that seems to
bring an eternal deadlock of
civilization. Tell us what we
seem to do wrong and let us tell
you what we think is wrong
with your setup. But let's shake
hands after the discussion.
And: let us young people join
forces to make the world safe!
In the Mail
To the Editor:
It has come to my attention
through the medium of a few
small headlines and one or two
articles and editorials that there
i: some slight difficulty over the
quality of the milk in the dorm.
Now of course i live in the
dorm, and therefore ought to
set myself up as an authority
on the percentage of butterfat
in dormitory milk, but I won't,
because I would hate to say that
the milk was diluted and then
turn around and find out that it
wasn't. Of course maybe 1 am
a little cowardly about the
whole thing, but then I am not
a journalist, and therefore am
not imbued with the crusading
But what I wanted to tell you
has nothing to do with this
tempest in a milk bottle that
you boys are stirring up. I have
a problem that deserves the
front page, banner headlines,
and a half page editorial if ever
a situation did. If a bottle of
milk deserves the front page,
then this deserves an extra.
It has to do with the water
being served at the dorm. 1 am
willing to be quoted as saying
that it is definitely below the
rtandards to which I am accus
tomed, and furthermore, • it is
not pure. While I haven’t been
in the kitchen for Home time,
still I have the statement of
a person whose roommate wiped
silverware only last year, and
ihey say that the water is di
luted. Please see what you can
do about this, you will be earn
ing the gratitude and undying
thanks of untold numbers of
dorm residents.
(Voice of, to-wit, 278, more
or less, dorm residents.)
P. S. The way I analyze the
situation is that the whole thing
is an unfortunate misunder
standing, and no one is more
unhappy about it than I am.
I think that it is a minor diffi
culty between Harner and the
milkman which is representa
tive of something that happens
in thousands of families all over
the nation.
The solution to the problem
would be to have the milkman
deliver a bottle of milk to every
door in the dorm each morning,
thus we could prevent the ad
ministration from getting their
hands on it. W.F.L.

Fourth Love Lecture
Discusses Emotion
and Divorce
One of the greatest causes of
"legal suicide” (the name he gave
to divorce) is the process of pro
jection of one’s own faults to one’s .
mate, according to Dr. F. L. Beck
who last night gave the “Psycho
logical Aspects of Marriage” in
the third of the annual love and
marriage series in Villard hall.
According to Dr. Beck, the in
tellectual, social, and physical de
fects of one of the principles of
marriage are often attributed by
him to his spouse, thus building
up pmotional tension which even
tually wrecks the home unless
steps are taken to make the cans- j
es clear.
A mimeographed bibliography of
the books available in the library
on the subjects of love and mar
riage was given to those who at
tended the lecture.
Dr. Paul Popenoe, director of
the Los Angeles Institute of Fam
ily Relations, will address students

Proposed Fee Raise
(Continued from page one)
system, totaled $33, which figure
was reduced the following year to
$27 under the influence of the de
pression. This level was main
tained until this fall, when an in
crease of $3 was applied to make
up for the failure of the state legis
lature to appropriate funds in
asked for amounts.
One minor difference between
the system in use now and that of
1932-33 which might be pointed
out is that at that time there was
a compulsory class fee of 50 cents.
This practice has been abandoned.
Tuition Fees New
j Before the unification of the
system the fee plan included pay
ment of separate course and lab
oratory fees for individual courses,
the charges ranging from 50 cents
to $6. In addition, there were also
special major school fees in several
of the professional schools.
Although under the unified sys
tem $33 was the highest and $27
the lowest figure, time was when
it cost the student only $10 yearly
“incidental fee" and $5 yearly stu
dent body tax. This practice was
in effect from around the turn of
the century until 1918, when the
long climb to the present level
The greatest increase was oc
casioned in 1931 when over a mil
lion dollars in special appropria
tions, which had previously been
taking care of the medical school,
the normal schools, and other
units, was lost, leaving the millage
to carry the burden alone.
