Ex-G-Man to Investigate Oregon University Athletes’ Incomes
Atherton Will
Ex-G-Mcrn Will Hold
Survey of Athletes'
Sources of Money
For Research
Webfoot varsity and fresh
man athletes will next week un
dergo an investigation of their
incomes and sources of financial j
aid when ex-G-man Edwin N.
Atherton arrives on the campus
as a special operative for the
Pacific coast conference.
Atherton, recently appointed
conference investigator, is engaged j
in a preliminary survey of all the I
schools in the conference, having
already been at UCLA, Southern
California, Stanford, and Califor
nia. He is now at Oregon State
college interviewing Orange ath
Long Survey Due
This preliminary probe is the
first step in a survey which may
require from one to two years to
complete. The purpose, according
to Atherton, is to get data and all
information possible on sources of
financial aid and income and event
ually set up a standard of rules
and probably an office or organi
sation to enforce them.
The results will not be made
public in connection with any in
stitution or alumnus, Atherton said
at Corvallis yesterday. The con
ference will probably not take ac
tion or make any changes for at
least a year or two.
To Probe Incomes
The income of athletes in institu
tions of higher learning is one
which is always a source of con
cern in all amateur athletics. The
coast conference is pioneering this
method of treatment.
The exact day of Atherton's ar
rival here next week could not be
given last night by the University
athletic board. He has been devot- |
ing a week to each school.
Cornell to Get
Oriental Brain
For Collection
Cornell university's famous brain
collection may have added to it its
first Japanese ‘brain, if the reso
lution of Dr. Tomitaro Makino,
Japanese botanist, is carried out.
Dr. Makino, 78, wants his brain
to be the first of his race in the
Cornell collection, and will come to
the United States to die, if neces
sary, to make that possible.
Under the law in Japan, a body
may not be dissected until 24
hours after death. Presservation
of brains requires removal within
an hour after death. Cornell's
( brain collection has been used to
make notable discoveries about the
mind in general and in a few cases
about the perculiarities of noted

Authority Claims
Upton Close, internationally
known authority on far-eastern af
fairs, told students at the Univer- i
sity of Oregon yesterday that Ja
pan is forcing America into an
economic hermitage.
“In defending our military front,
we are leaving our economic front
wide open for the Japanese to
march in,” stated Mr. Close (Josef
Washington Hall) at an 11 o’clock
assembly in Gerlinger hall.
Introduced to a large gathering
of students, faculty and townspeo
ple, by Dean Victor P. Morris of
the school of business, Mr. Close
presented a graphic word picture
of economic relationships among
the foremost world powers and
showed positions Japan and Amer
ica will play in the approaching
struggle for supremacy in the in
ternational “ch^ss game."
Terming his address “America
in a Gangster World,” Upton Close
brought into vivid relief the spec
tacle of Great Britain and Ameri
ca as the champions of democracy,
in a fight-to-the-finish contest with
Japan, Italy, and Germany . . .
the nations employing gangster
tactic? to establish their unchal
lenged economic security, and new
world empires.
Ideals Threatened
Democratic ideals to which the
policies of the gangster nations
would mean destruction are politi

Rapidly sketching the history of
Europe since the World war, Close
drew analogies and comparisons
between the Japantese-American
situation and the Italian-British

ute to their governmental heads.

Financing Project
Ed Robbins, chairman of the stu
dent union board, reported to the
executive committee yesterday that
his committee is going forward
with its planning by laying care
fully the groundwork for financ
ing the proposed building.
Settlement on the proxy-vote
question came in the form of an
addition to the by-laws when the
group definitely banned such bal
lots in ASUO elections.
Class Elections Studied
A discusssion of the plan to
bring the classes under the con
trol of an ASUO election board
brought forth the opinions of sev
eral committee members that the
class prexies have misunderstood
the purpose of such a check. It
was pointed out that each class
would be well represented if such
a board were set up, and that the
classes would be able to avoid the
“unpleasant situations and rumors
arising from not too well con
trolled elections in the past.” Al
though the junior class h.xS indi
cated that it does not wish such
aid from the ASUO, the plan will
not be abandoned, Prexy Hall said
last night.
Appropriation of $25 for the bat
tleship Oregon fund was made at
the meeting from the ASUO gen
eral fund. Discussion of changes
in the various athletic awards was
postponed by the committee.

No more pig chasing.
Radical reforms for the rally
squad came yesterday when the
ASUO executive committee passed
a plan to be written into its by
laws that will control and direct
the work of that body.
Acting to clear up some of the
criticism that the present setup
receives, the committee agreed to
two plans submitted by Abe Wein
er and Prexy Barney Hall. Hall
was commissioned to formally
draw up the plan.
Nine to Be Ralllers
Weiner's part of the new deal
states that the rally group shall
be composed of nine members
(three sophs, two juniors and a
senior who shall act as chairman
and three women members). In
addition each living organization

Hall Makes Suggestions
Parts of the plan suggested by

moval of any rally member and
the filling of the vacancy under the

rallies, publicity and dances.
A campus-wide contest at the
beginning of each school year will
be held to obtain ideas for half
