A Straight Line Is the Shortest Distance
OT so very long ago these eolumns carried
^ a rather self-evident observation 1o tlie
effect that, since it was only forty miles to
Corvallis from Eugene and the same forty
miles to Eugene from Corvallis, il would he
only reasonable for key groups in each school
to do a little traveling, and find out, how the
other half lives. This, it was claimed, would
work to the advantage of all concerned,
through Ihe pooling of ideas and the result
ant better understanding. Also, it is a well
recognized principle that it is far more simple
to get things done by open talk across the
table than by any other method. Any other
method loses effectiveness by its indirectness.
This two-way forty-mile axiom had a
chance to show what it can accomplish only
last weekend, when AKIIO Proxy dohn Dick
and Homecoming Chairman Burton Barr,
without pre-announcements or fanfare of any
kind, journeyed to Corvallis for a rather im
portant discussion with some of the best
heads at Corvallis, representing key positions
there. They wanted to talk “better relations,”
and they went to the two men who were best
fitted 1o help, namely Ralph Floberg, presi
dent of the ASOSC, and Don Drake, editor of
the Barometer. And they did talk, with a re
sulting two-way understanding which hears
out the point that hotli sides are willing and
eager to work things out.
this idea of “better relations” is not
exactly the pipe dream of only four men.
Furthermore, it can be broken down into at.
least two or three separate aims, each of which
is justifiable on plenty of good grounds. For
one thing, everyone wanted to leave no stone
unturned to prevent the upsurge of such rabid
partisanship as is likely to create business for
infirmary patch-up artists. This is in keeping
with the trend of the time. They used to have
a legalized free-for-all at Cornell, under the
guise of a “cane-rush,” but they jettisoned
1 hat without hesitation when one of the en
thusiasts turned up dead after the smoke of
battle cleared away. There is no such thing
as a cane-rush in these parts, but no one can
deny it is practically miraculous that blood
letting around Webfoot-Beaver goal posts has
not been fatal. Plenty on both sides will all
their lives carry the scars of such spontaneous
crushes, and what have they got to show for
themV Nothing.
And whenever “a bunch of the boys” take
it into their heads to whoop things up a little
by a raid into enemy territory, even if il is
only with paint brushes, they are only taking
out insurance that feeling will run high when
their respective student bodies face each other
across a field, especially when one of the stu
dent bodies will have a winning and the other
a losing team at the game. Somebody usually
wins, and that is not calculated to make either
the winner charitable or the loser friendly—
this in spite of all the unwritten codes of good
sportsmanship and “cricket” which should
necessarily be mutually accepted if athletic
contests are to stay within their true circle
of importance.
TInS was °n!y «ne of the things Proxies
Dick and Floberg, Editor Drake, an>|
( hairman Barr were working on. Thev figure,
reasonably enough, that the thing can be kept
within reason, it it is emphasized enough.
They decided that if both groups would sing
Ilieir songs and leave immediately after the
game, get away from 1 lit* stadium, they would
still he able to have a pretty good lime and
see a very good game; and there would be
no nursing of bodily wounds afterward.
Another thing Dick and Barr did in Cor
vallis was to invite the Beaver si udent body to
make the most of the Web fool Homecoming.
They pointed out that the Homecoming dance
will be such that any member of the student
body will want to attend. And it does not harm
for anybody 1o go to some other student
body’s dance and see what it is like, beyond
having a “good time,” as popular idiom has
it. Tn the last few years the tendency has
been increasingly for inter-school participa
tion in Ihe bigger dances, a practice which has
worked out very well both ways. So Dick and
Barr invited the Beavers to make a day and a
night of it, invited the Beaver Greeks to stay
with the Webfoot Greeks to take in Ihe events.
Boh groups agreed that it was to the best
interests of both to pul this thing across, and
both agreed to do all in their power to make
the plan work out successfully. It would be
a fine thing if every Webfoot could meet
Ralph Floberg, for a more likeable person or
belter man would be hard to find, while
Barometer Hditor Drake has expressed his in
tention of throwing all his resources on the
side of this commendable project. That which
is true of Beaver executives in relation to
Webfoots is also true in reverse, for Webfoot
executives in relation to Beavers—it would
be worthwhile.
JT must be understood, however, that there is
no intent on anyone’s part to holy-holy if,
or to moralize on the evils of red-bloodedness.
It is certain that a 100 per cent observance of
the rules of Alphonse-Gaston gentlemanlincss
would result in so dull a situation as to be
completely uninteresting. Rare is the collegian
who has never at some time squirmed under
the excitement of fierce partisanship toward
his alma mater, and this is only natural. One
should stick up for the things which are one’s
own; it was written when man was invented
that it should be this way. But University and
State college student executives are on the
right track when they seek to minimize the
unpleasant results of that which might be
gotten under way. The Franklinism “an ounce
of prevention is worth a pound of cure’’ is
neither lairy tale nor bedtime story.
All in all, it would seem from any analysis
that the program these leaders endorse is
worth supporting, and they can do nothing
without the understanding support of the
out ire groups they each represent. That
throws the responsibility squarely up to the
individual. Greek houses could bring pressure
on Ilnur members by cracking down on raid
ing and the like—that would be one way.
Others, of course, could not be restrained in
this way, but in truth no one* should have to
be restrained by such measures.
It is good to see the forty mile axis in use
for any kind of problem. Use of the axis is
• he only way these irritants will ever be put
in their place, which is the ash can. With such
anticipations so capably and amicably pre
pared there is no reason for Hayward field to
become another battle of the Marne, come
ten days from now. In fact, it bids fair to a
tar better-rounded weekend, a preview to
I riendlier. saner years to come.

‘Babes in Arms’
America’s boy and girl stars,

Arms” elaborate screen version
of the Broadway musical which
comes to the McDonald soon.
Headed by Mickey Rooney
and Judy Garland, who are
starred, "Babes in Arms" is set
in the period that saw the pass
ing of vaudeville and concerns
those happy-go-lucky headliners
and their children who saw that
world totter when motion pic
tures shoved their "two-a-day"
into discard.
Mickey plays the son of a
famous vaudeville team who in
herits his fathers talent plus a
modern viewpoint. Judy is given
her finest opportunity to dis
play her talents as an accom
plished vaudeville entertainer.
The picture deals with these
kids of vaudeville performers
who save the day when they
crash on Broadway on their own
steam by the very talent that
made the names of their fathers
and mothers household words.
The adult members of the
cast are Charles Winninger, Guy
Kibbee, Grace Hayes, Rand
Brooks, and a host of old-time
names such as Irene Franklin,
Margaret Young, and George
McKay. "Babes in Arms” is a

Ginger’s Latest
When Ginger Rogers refused
dancing roles and demanded
that she be given parts where
she could "act,” critics unani
mously agreed that her picture
career was over. They soon
found out however that Ginger
could "act” as well as dance and
with pictures such as "Vivacious
Lady,” "Stage Door,” and
“Bachelor, Mother” she was
classed as a top-flight actress.
Her latest picture, "Fifth
Avenue Girl,” is screen current
ly at the Heilig. This is a hilar
ious comedy in which she has
the solo starring role. A stellar
supporting cast includes Walter
Connolly, James Ellison, Verre
Teasdale, Franklin Pangborn,
and Tim Holt.
“Fifth Avenue Girl” is a
screen play about a sidewalk
Cinderella who is paid a salary
to upset a millionaire house
