Bryant Urges
Planning for
Future Years
America Must Build
Up InternalDef ense
Against Old Ideas,
Speaker Says
The strongest defense that Am
■ericans can have at the present
time in their desire to prevent war
is a resistance against outworn
ideas and attitudes which would
destroy our country, said Stewart
F. Bryant, retired lieutenant-com
mander of the United States navy,
who spoke before an assembly of
students, faculty, and Eugene resi
dents Thursday morning.
Declaring that there are two
types of defense, military and in
ternal, the speaker advised Ameri
cans to wholeheartedly support the
latter, through social, economic,
and peaceful means. They should
look ahead, and try to promote a
sense of loyalty to future genera
tions, he said. Present-day scien
tific and educational facilities
could do much in this direction, is
his belief.
Students Need Training
The student, who will play an
important part in future world af
fairs, must do his part, Mr. Stew
art said. The student needs a
worthwhile vocation, for which he
will work for more people and less
money than the average person
wants to; he needs to fortify him
self against adversity; he should
study great men and boundless
subjects to increase his sense of
time and space and see the rela
tion of his own existence to the
rest of humanity; and he must
know about evils if he is to keep
other evils out, Mr. Stewart de
clared.
World Has Enough Brains
Although there is enough educa
tional power in the world to solve
any problem on the face of the globe,
he said, the “ways out” that have
been tried—disarmament, economic
conferences, and isolation—will not
work. Grievances nf nations have
been perpetuated by their attempts
to solve them, he said. He pointed
to the League of Nations as a
“good idea,” that has not been
worked out suitably.
“I do not see any manifestation
of peace in all nature, and I don’t
think we will ever have it,” the
speaker said. The nations of the
world are not ready for the sacri
fices that they sometimes have to
make to promote peace, he be
lieves.

for some kind of a rebate or fee
to be paid by all rushees who re-*
ceive official date cards, the house*
presidents decided to confer w.ithi
Dean of Men Virgil D. Earl before
their next meeting. Council Preiy
Ron Husk named Courtney Las
selle and A1 Long to work with!
Koch on the plan.
Room Rates May Raise
Part of the suggestion to bring
some expense money into the
houses’ coffers would have the
standard board of room rates of
rushees raised approximately $2,
which money would be pro-rated
back to the houses according- to
the number of rushees entertained.
A plan for the rebating of funds
suggested earlier in the evening
was discarded on the suggestion
of the presidents.
j “The house managers feel that
; some fees should be returned to
house treasuries to help defray
I the extra expense of feeding ruab
! ees during that week,” Koch said
in stating the case last night.
New System Possible
The newly-appointed committee
will attempt to work the plan out
with regard to whatever plan the
i administration may have in mind
for the fall rush-week's housing,,
feeding, and dating problems*
Husk said after the meeting.
A resolution was passed to place
all of the rushing material of t.bd
houses into a planned University
publication instead of their own
pamphlet.
