Success Story of Oregon Cooperatives Told on Page Three VOLUME XL UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 1939 72. NUMBER-W Peace Meeting Splits As Ideas Clash on How To Insure AgainstWar Isolation vs. Collective Security Issue To Be Settled by Committee; Strike to Be Held Week From Thursday The dove of peace, symbolic goal of a student committee planning a strike against war, faltered in its flight yesterday when an intra committee dispute broke out over the type of peace program to be propounded at the April 20 demonstration. Plans for the anti-war demonstration reached a virtual stalemate when heated discussion arose over whether an “isolationist" or “col lectivist” viewpoint should be expressed at the strike. The terms were Speech Quintet Join National Honorary Four speech students, Florence Sanders, Pearl King, Charles Dev ereaux, and Roy Vernstrom, have filled requirements and will be for mally initiated into Delta Sigma Rho, national speech honorary, May 3, according to George Hall, president. To qualify for Delta Sigma Rho the student must be an upper classman and in his third year of speech work. He also must have debated successfully against some other college or represented the University in oratory. There are five active members of the Oregon chapter at present: Zane Kemler, Ed Robbins, Marshall Nelson, Howard Kessler, and President Hall. On the faculty there are six members: John L. Casteel, W. A. Dahlberg, Burt Brown Barker, Wayne Morse, Victor P. Morris, and Carlton Spencer. They will take part in the initiation at the Anchorage at 5 p.m. Persons who have participated in debate or speech work have been invited by Delta Sigma Rho to at tend the banquet at 6. This will take the place of the annual speech banquet. Hall asks that those who plan to attend notify him by the last of April. not denned at the meeting, al though several students indicated their beliefs centered around the theories that peace could be best achieved by isolating the United States from factors which might lead to war, or by collective action among nations to insure peace. After nearly two hours of argu ment, Chairman Robin Drews, a militant “isolationist,” turned the tempest of ideals over to a five member committee, which will de cide the nature of the strike to be held a week from Thursday. The committee was given full power to outline a program. Tony Harlow, a sophomore in social science, suggested a campus wide program representing a “united front for peace” be planned for the date. Under Harlow’s plan, groups who agree that peace is desirable would be given the op portunity to explain the methods by which it could be achieved. Speech Department Supplies Speakers Many requests have been re ceived by the faculty in the speech division to deliver high school commencement addresses, John L. Casteel said yesterday. The schedule thus far includes: W. A. Dahlberg to speak at Wasco and Rufus; D. E. Hargis at Glide; and Mr. Castel at Adams, Echo, Knappa-Svenson, Dufur, and Co burg. University Band Concert Wins Praise of Audience; KOAC Releases Program Like “clock work” in precision, I skillful in technic, and brilliant in interpretation, are all phrases which were repeated in describing the playing of the University band, when they presented a concert un der the direction of John Stehn last night at the music auditorium. The concert opened with a rous ing marching song from the “Al gerian Suite” by Saint-Saens. Be ginning with clarinet, flute, and harp cadenzas and French horn solos, the band presented with variation and contrast “Mignon Overture” by Thomas. Miss Hixson Sings Lorraine Hixson, soprano, who is a sophomore in music, sang “Air, I Vow That Nothing Shall Prevent Me” by Bizet. The band accompaniment provided a fine background for Miss Hixson as she sang high notes from the opera “Carmen.” Applause Brings Encore In closing the band played two movements from Tschaikowski’s symphony No. 4 in f-minor, which demonstrated the impressiveness of tremendous volume, broken by short silences, changing moods, and interesting song pattern with its quick, exciting tempo. At an interval the woodwind quartet and quintet played two selections. In response to applause the band played a military march. The con cert was broadcast over KOAC by remote control. There will be a meeting of all house representatives for the AWS carnival at the Side today at 4 o’clock. First Web foots Grew Fat on Valley Verdure Evidence that the early Ore gon Indians ate practically ev erything that was green is shown in the Indian plant foods now on display in the Condon hall museum. The plants were gathered in the valley around Eugene. Because of the abundant veg etation in the Oregon country, the Indians oftentimes became overweight and lazy, while their brothers in the eastern part of the country grew taller and were more energetic. The Klamath Indians used va rious roots and berries for food. Wild gooseberries, huckleber ries, currants, thimbleberries, strawberries, and service berries were their favorites'. They ground flour from the rice root lily, and ate the leaves and ten der sprouts of many other plants. In the entire valley food was so plentiful that a squaw could take a two-hour trip in a dug out and come home with a canoe half filled with fowls, eggs, and water plants.

Young Artists Learn to Paint Near to Nature Temperamental students of art are finding the blossoming trees, blue skies, and colorful posies of spring more inspiring to their artistic ego than mere imagination. The pupils can now do their painting in the great outdoors. One section, the spring water solor class, is given only this term and all the painting is done next to nature. Three teachers, assistant pro fessor L. W. Hart, professor A. M. Vincent, and instructor D. J. McCosh, will each have charge of the section for an interval. Independents Plan Triple-Bill Affair A three-fold program including swimming and dancing climaxed by a wiener roast, will be the fea-; ture of the “4:40 Yard Dash,” to be sponsored by the Yeomen, in dependent men, and the Orides, in-, dependent women of the Univer sity of Oregon in Gerlingcr hall on Friday night. Men and women will swim in the pool of the women’s gym, and dance in the Gerlinger sun porch. Feature of the evening will be the wiener-roast on the field between the library and the outdoor gym. The evening will begin at 7:30.. The cost of the function is to be 20 cents. All men and women on the campus are invited. Arrangements are being handled by Erros Penland and Jim Hatch. Campus Musical Enters Final Week of Rehearsals Entering the final big week be fore the grand opening of “With Fear and Trembling” next Mon day night in Johnson hall at the University of Oregon, Horace Robinson, drama division instruc tor and co-director of the musical with Wilfred Roadman, last night put the cast of 40 students through the first complete rehearsal of the comedy. • Major emphasis will be placed on final grooming and trimming of Gene Edward’s dancing choruses and specialty numbers. Edwards himself and the lovely ballet dancer, Janet Eames, will carry one of the heaviest and most effective dance numbers. Robinson’s latest ingenious stage device is the introduction of Lor raine Hixson, the glamorous and successful Gina Kirsten movie star in the comedy, to the Johnson hall audience in one of her movie tri Horace Kobinson ... is keeping pretty busy with his latest pro duction. umphs, fading the movie sequence of the singer as the curtains part to show the actress "in person." The remarkable ease with which the complex factors of the show were fitted together in the always difficult "first draft” of the musi cal, indicate the perfection and careful planning with which the comedy has been handled. Diplomatic 'First Lady' To Talk Here Ruth Bryan Owen First Woman to Hold Four Positions In Government Without sharing- the honor with Mrs. Franklin Roosevelt, Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen, coming here to speak at an ASUO assembly Friday morning, was, nevertheless, termed by faculty members yesterday in deed a “first lady of America."

Minutes Revealing Someone got to snooping around and uncovered the minute books of John Straub, who was secretary of the faculty 57 years ago. Our predecessors led a tough life. Here are some of the “hear ye's” listed on the minutes of the faculty meet ing of September 11, 1882: "A student must not enter the brewery or saloon. “Or drink any intoxicating liquor while in attendance at the Uni versity, or on his or her way to and from the same, except on the prescription of a physician. No Smoking “Or use tobacco in any form or way while on the college campus. "Or injure the building or pro perty of the University. “Or join any secret society. “Or stand or sit around the doors or making disturbing noise in the halls of the college build ings.” Here's what was found when the minutes of another meeting were found: "Moved: that it be the duty of the president to investigate the cases of intemperance having oc curred among the students at Lane’s hall Friday evening." Different Rooms And again on September 28, 1882, the lads and lasses took an other one on the nose: "it was moved that the young ladies and gentlemen be assigned different rooms. On motion the young ladies are required to use the stairways on the south end of the building and the young men those on the north side.” The next time you swear at the ladies for interrupting your "tete a tetes" (?) remember this: “At any social gatherings, stu dents in attendance are required to be in their rooms by 11 o’clock each night.” Here to Study Poor kids! Listen: “It is import ant that students should devote their time to the object for which they attend the University, and whereas their attendance at places of amusement seriously detracts from their standing and scholar ship, therefore, resolved that all students of this University are hereby prohibited from attending any places of amusement from Monday morning until Friday night of each week during the session of the University.” Skating Is Injurious Skaters had their difficulties: “Resolved that we regard attend ance at the skating rink on the part of our students as injurious to their moral and intellectual wel fare.” The gay nineties—ha! “It was moved that those who are known to have been at the theater be brought before the faculty.” Tell About Sexes At least the administration was conscientious: “Moved that the president call the students togeth er and address them upon the asso ciation of the sexes in both private and public.” The Emerald story tells us that most of these regulations have passed into eternity. It all goes to show that we aren’t so hard hit now. But we'll agree that there was plenty of fun to be had for the adventurous at heart. Queen of Wonderland Maxine Glad . . . will sec her brain child, the “Alice in Wonderland” of Junior Weekend, put into effect from her queen's throne. Maxine Glad Captures Crown-Wearing Role Desiped bg Herself Originator of 'Alice in Wonderland' Theme Elected Queen of Juniors Over Nearest Competitor, Alyce Rogers She planned the part, and now she will act it. Maxine Glad, around whose “Alice in Wonderland" theme all Junior Weekend will be designed, saw her already successful plan bear the sweetest fruit of all yesterday when ASUO and junior class card holders went to the polls and voted her head into the Junior Weekend queen’s crown. In winning the right to play “Alice” in her own “wonderland,” the queen-to-be ran up a comfortable majority over Alyce Rogers, her nearest competitor, collecting 170 out of the 504 votes cast. Final Results Listed Standings of the four princesses at the end of the ballot counting were: Alyce Rogers, 111; Patsy Taylor, 92; Margaret Williams, 65; and Helen Gillam, 61. Dean of Women Hazel P. Schwering made a surprise entry into the race by proxy, capturing a place in the finals when five un identified supporters marked their ballots with her name. The new queen will rule over all Junior Weekend events during the three days of the traditional spring term holiday. In addition, she will this year act a definite role as the Alice of "Wonderland." The ballots were counted by a special committee headed by Bob Hoehuli and including: June Brown and Elisabeth Stetson, working in conjunction with the “big three” of Junior Weekend, Hal Jahn, Walt Miller, and Burton Barr. Provision for inspection of the ballots at any time was made by the committee with the announce ment that the votes are on file at the educational activities office in the Igloo, and may be seen upon request during this period. Queen Maxine-"Alice” will offi cially don the crown and scepter and mount the Junior Weekend throne just a month and a day from this noon. Coronation is a traditional feature of the campus luncheon, on Weekend Friday, May 12. National Rifle Champions Receive Fine Plaudits; Warren’s Score Praised If Coach Howard Hobson is the best basketball coach in the nation, then diminutive Sergeant Harvey G. Blythe, coach of the University rifle teams, can lay claim to the title of the “best rifle coach in the nation,” for his teams of the last six years have done something that no other college rifle team has been able to do. In the seven years that Sergeant Blythe has been coaching the Oregon marksmen, the W. R. Hearst National Championship trophy has been won three times by Oregon teams. The trophy was won by the Ore gon team in 1935 and again in 1937. This year the team upheld the every other year tradition by stepping out and grabbing the, championship for the third time. OSC Congratulates Today, Colonel Robert M. Lyon, commandant of the University ROTC, received a letter of con gratulation from Colonel Sloan, commandant of the ROTC at Ore gon State college. Colonel Lyon expressed his pleasure at receiving the letter and said that it showed, "the good sportsmanship of his unit in congratulating our rifle team on their success.” In regard to the victory of the Oregon squad, he said, “I’m very happy indeed. Very proud and hap py. The hard work and conscien tious training of these boys has placed their score so high as to put them at the head of all college ROTC units of the United States.” Blythe’s Work Shines Later, he added, "this has again brought the excellence of Sergeant Blythe, as a rifle coach, out to the front. The unceasing toil of Sergeant Bylthe has told the story.” Sergeant Blythe, when asked what kind of a score he could shoot, laughingly said that he was “a has been.” However, he admit ted, when pressed, that there was only one member of his team which he would not be willing to bet on beating. That member is national individual champion, Stan ley Warren, who fired a perfect score of 200 in the national match. This feat has never been matched before by a college marksman. “It Was Partly Luck” Warren insisted that his perfect score was partly a matter of luck. He had fired perfect scores before in practice but never in a match. Warren has fired on three na tional championship teams in the last three years. He fired on the team which brought the Hearst trophy to Oregon in 1937. Then, in 1938, he was selected on the team to represent the ninth corps area and this team also won the na tional championship. Now, in 1939, he has finished his college compe tition by winning the national indi vidual championship. Warren will not be back on the firing line for Oregon next year. He is a senior.
