    Bryant Claims Sacrifice
For Peace Is Profitable
A stimulating exchange of ideas on the American international
problem was the keynote of the final forum on peace education held
by University of Oregon students yesterday in Gerlinger hall with
retired navy officer Lieutenant-Commander Stewart F. Bryant as he
spoke at a general assembly earlier in the morning.
Perhaps the soundest bit of evidence that the peace-insurance
seekers elicited from the foreign-relations authority was his contention
that nearly as great a sacrifice
will be demanded of the American
people to aivoid war as to fight
one, with the difference that a
sacrifice for peac ewould be con
structive to civilization, while the
latter would entail the utter de
struction of culture.
Questions Answered
Questioned by students, under
the leadership of Dr. ictor P. Mor
ris, Bryant pointed out that the
duty of the individual lies in four
spheres of action:
First, he maintained, it is neces
sary to determine which of the
directing voices are worth listening
to ... . and which are worthless.
Second, to discover the twenty
most trustworthy publications on
'current affairs and to read them
, Active Interest Needed
He also recommended that the
individual take an active part in
affairs of government . . . and to
elect persons to office who realize
to the fullest extent the responsi
bility they hold.
The fourth function of the indi
vidual is to realize the importance
of establishing an international1

Th efirst of Oregon’s attempts
at peace education closed with the
post-assembly discussion which is
rapidly becoming an accepted part
of each lecture at the University.
The result of this interchange of
ideas will probably not be mani
fest at once, but it is the hope of
the campus organizations which
sponsored the discussions that fur
ther activity along tlfe same lines
will avert the catastrophe of an
other war.
“Man is no longer a personality
but a civil war. There is always a
conflict within him, between his
animal heritage and his spiritual
heritage.” Dr. William A. Eddy,
president of Hobart and William
Smith college, describes the indi
vidual of 1938.

Gondon Club Hears of
Geographic Effect
On Anatomy
Dr. R. R. Huestis, professor of
zoology, spoke at a meeting of the
Condon club last night on the top
ic, “The Geographic Distribution
pf Fauna.”
Speaking to a group interested
in geography and geology, Dr.
Huestis told of some of the factors
of natural selection which have
been operating over long periods
of geologic time. He also gave
instances of differences which can
be found today, due to even rela
tively slight differences in the
geographical factors of climate,
vegetation, elevation, and others.
Slight variations in these fac
tors, according to Dr. Huestis,
have been responsible for anatomi
cal changes, feeding and breeding
habits, and even pronounced dif
ferences in color of the animals
which are distributed about the
world. Several mouse skins were
shown to illustrate the ability of
these animals to adapt their colors
to their surroundings.

Class of '13 Aims at 100 Mark
At Silver Anniversary Reunion
One hundred or bust! Come all you fraternal brothers of the class
of 1913; the lid of the big blow-off is about to unceremoniously arise!
This and similar forms of subtle proselyting Carlton Spencer, professor
of law, in cooperation with many no less enthusiastic alums, has been
dispensing for the last five years.
_ Five years ago at the twentieth reunion of the class of 1913 plans
were made, according to Mr. Spencer, “for the greatest reunion that

Flower Collection
With the cooperation of Mrs.

curator of the herbarium, is now
making a reconnaissance of the
flowering plants in the Big Fall
Creek region.
Although he does not expect to
find new plants there, Mr. Hender
son believes he will come across
some very interesting and rare
specimens. The survey will prob
ably take until July or August,

every few weeks to collect'flowers
in their blossoming season.
i has ever been held on the University
of Oregon campus.” Since then,
in fact since this spring Elmer
Fansett, alumni director, in an ef
fort to spur on “more alums back
to Oregon” has tried to start some
friendly competition between the
several classes planning reunions.
With the motto “One hundred or
bust,” however, says Mr. Spencer,
“The class of 1913 is so far ahead
of the other reunioning classes
there is no competition.”
“As a further enticement,” says
Ed Bailey, class of ’13 prexy,
“Dean Schwering has given her
absolute promise that all Pan-Hell
enic rules will be off for our visit
and we won’t have to get in until
9:30 p.m.”
