“The Role of Youth in the
Changed Environment of Europe,”
is the subject which Dr. Edwin

students this morning at the as
sembly in Gerlinger hall at 11 o’
Dr. Espy has just returned from
Europe where he served as execu
tive for the World Conference of
Christian Youth at Amsterdam
during the month of July. His
headquarters for the past three
years as secretary of the Ecumen
ical Youth commission, internation
al youth association, has been
Geneva, Switzerland.
During his time in Europe Dr.
Espy has had an opportunity to
meet young people from all over
Europe, and talk with them about
the problems and adjustments they
face as the rising generation of
countries caught in the whirlpool
of social and economic change.
A popular young speaker, quali
fied to speak on either political or
social trends, he was until recently
on a speaking tour in the east and
flew to the Pacific coast
for his engagement on the Oregon
campus. While here he will be one
of the principle leaders of the Ore
gon Christian Youth assembly
which is scheduled to meet this
weekend at the University.
A native Oregonian, Dr. Espy
hails from Portland. His brother,
John, graduated from the Univer
sity last year.
Law School Dean
Goes to Seattle
For Labor Dispute
Reappointment of Dean Wayne
L. Morse of the University law
school to the post of maritime ar
bitrator for the Pacific coast has
been approved by President Erb.
Dean Morse left last night for
Seattle where he will take part
in settling a labor dispute.
Another labor tie-up at Belling
ham, Washington, will be survey
ed by Dean Morse to determine
whether or not it is a local or
coastwide issue. If the situation
has any bearing on Pacific coast
labor problems, the Oregon law
dean will call a hearing to settle
the dispute.
Dean Morse recently resigned
from the position as arbitrator
when a decision rendered By him
was not followed by the longshore
men's union in San Francisco.
The award handed down by
Dean Morse decreed that the long
shoremen were guilty of collusive
picketing in conjunction with the
San Francisco clerk’s union which
went on strike recently. The award
was made on the basis of another
decision handed down by Morse
on March 2, 1939, which found that
“illegitimate” picket lines are not
sufficient cause for union men to
refuse to do work which will cause
them to pass through the lines.
“Illegitimate” picket lines are
defined as those established by
one union for the benefit of an
other union which has special in
terests in mind.

ant professor of journalism, took
over the advisory duties of Sigma

orary, at their regular meeting

Fall Formal
On Slate for
Law School
Soph Frolic Same
Night; Fur to Fly
Over Gal-Dating
Following their usual practice
of completely overshadowing other
campus affairs, the law school yes
terday scheduled their annual fall
dance with the Dean of Women’s
office. The date of the glorious
affair will be the night of No
vember 4 the same night as
the soph informal.
The scheduling of two such awe
inspiring events on the same night,
promises to create a feror in
campus social life, according to the
Law school public relations coun
cil composed of W. F. Loboersky,
Tom B. Collins and Hi O. Silver.
Because of the beforementioned
complications, the public relations
council of the would-be lawyers
wishes to advise campus ladies
clamoring for dates to contact the
council immediately. Dates will be
apportioned strictly upon the quo
ta system and those who make
their reservations first will receive
prior consideration.
The original theme for the af
fair was a Ghost dance, but the
idea was dropped when the in
credulous law scholars learned to
their amazement that spirits arc
strictly taboo at University of Ore
gon social functions.

Big Name Orchestra
From Golden Gate
Dance Chairman, Bud Aronson, Appoints
Nine Man Committee to Formulate Plans;
Theme Still Unannounced
Climaxing weeks of extensive search for an available orchestra,
Bob Aronson, Homecoming itance chairman, released the name of
Leon Mojica as the band that will play for students and alumni the
night of November 11.
Leon Mojica and company will come to the Oregon campus direct
from the popular San Francisco night spot, El Patio. The Mutual
Broadcasting system carries Mojica’s rhythms three nights weekly on
its northwestern network.
Those who attended the sopho
more informal last year will re
member Mojica as the one who
provided the smooth arrangements
of old and popular tunes for en
thralled dancers.
Not only is Leon Mojica popular
with campus dancers but he and
his music is well liked by a large
off-campus public as evidenced by
his popularity with state fair audi
ences this summer.
The theme for the Homecoming
terpsichorean event is as yet un
decided, according to Aronson.
However, the theme and decora
tions will provide a fitting back
ground for the lilting strains of
Leon Mojica’s orchestra, Aronson
Bud Aronson also appointed a
committee to help him with dance
plans. Those named were: Jack
Saltzman, publicity; Glen Eaton
ind Lloyd Hoffman, orchestra;
Louie Torgeson, programs; Bob
Herzog, tickets; Catherine Mur
dock, patrons and patronnesses;
2y Nims, decorations; and Lloyd
Sullivan and Jack Hannegan in
charge of floor and clean-up.

Of NewFund
Mrs. Williams Will
Donate Quarter
Million to Oregon
The wandering' quarter of a mil
lion dollars that has puzzled the

gon Medical school the past two
weeks came to rest on this cam
pus yesterday when a copy of the
will of the late Mrs. Anna Mildred

The excerpt pertaining to the
school grant read, “FOURTH:—
(A) I give and bequeath to the
University of Oregon, the sum of
two hundred and fifty thousand
dollars ($250,000.00), in memory
of Dr. Kenneth A. J. MacKenzie, to
be known as the Kenneth A. J.
MacKenzie memorial fund. The
Trustees of the University may
use this fund for such purposes as
they in their absolute discretion
may deem to be to the best inter
ests of the University.”
Dr. MacKenzie was one of the
founders and a former dean of the
medical school in Portland.
“Whether or not the medical
school has a right to share in the
bequest must await a determina
tion of the relationship existing
between this University and the
school in Portland by some legal
authority,” President Erb said yes
From the viewpoint of the Ore
gon State System of Higher Edu
cation, the two schools are regard
ed as distinct units of the system.
