is slightly under last year's fall

Honest Press
Crookham Tells
Students of Need
For Truthfulness
Newspapers as “living, breath
ing, organisms” that will not only
Stand up for a right but. even fight
for it against personal loss must
point the way for writers today,
Arthur Crookham, city editor of
the Oregon Journal, declared at a
Newspaper week assembly in
Chapman hall last night.
Mr. Crookham addressed a group
of University journalism students
in a talk which upheld the
strength hidden in the statement
“freedom of the press” and sug
gested possible qualities that build
toward a newspaper writer.
“The quotation from the Bible,
‘You shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free,' should
be on the masthead of every news
paper,” the Portland journalist
stated. “It is impossible for people
in a democracy to govern if they
do not know the truth.
v 11v .~ ui i man i
“Germans paid a high price for
loss of freedom of the press. The
dictators do not comprehend that
lying is not only wrong but does
not pay. Relations of men must
depend on truth and no effort is
too great to defend its agencies.”
Ideas that “the customer is al
ways right” received a rap from
Mr. Crookham. He emphasized that
papers should stick to their ideals
even if it means a temporary loss
of readers and advertising.
Neatness, Accuracy Stressed
“Biggest bill of indictment
against reporters,” he revealed, “is
the failure of so many writers to
recognize the importance of little
things. Neatness and accuracy are
also important.”
College Training Discussed
“Students must not get the idea
that a college diploma will put
them ahead — at least not right
away,” he continued. “Reporters
have to prove their worth.”
Mr. Crookham said that journal
ists should write their stories to
follow the same pattern as an en
gineer who is going to construct a
building. He also emphasized that
the days of the "boozing” reporter
are something from the past that
no longer exist on large dailies.
Eric W. Allen, dean of the school
of journalism, introduced the
speaker and gave an explanation
of Newspaper week. The talk was
Mr. Crookham’s second on the
campus. He appeared here in the
spring of 1939.

Registrar Expects
Student Increase
An enrollment increase of 2 per
cent was predicted last night by
Clifford L. Constance, assistant
registrar, as he announced that
registration figures up to Wednes
day night totaled 3473.
“In view of the draft and gen
eral uncertain conditions, even
holding our own was very gratify
ing,” Mr. Constance stated.
Basing his figures on the pre
dicted 2 per cent increase, he esti->
mated that this year’s total should
be some 3700. A total enrollment
of 3,615 was reached last fall.'
Exact figures will not be avail
able until graduate students finish
registering next week, but Mr.
Constance said that the proportion
of men to women would probably
remain the same as the former
average of three men to two girls.
Undergraduates must be regis
tered by October 15. Graduate stu
dents may register until October 7.
Late registration fees are assessed
at the rate of $1 a day until a
maximum of $5 is reached.

only major league game this year.

It was surprising to see the
number of freshman footbail team
members when President Erb dis
missed members of the Duckling
squad for workout. Amazing also
was to find the number of feminine
members Coach Warren had.

Now that they’re working for
the government, NYA students are
wondering if they come under the
Hatch bill, which forbids federal
employees from engaging in politi
cal activity.
Responsibility for answering the
question, put by President Erb,
passed from Dean Onthank to Mr.
Anderson, who said that candi
dates’ buttons could be worn “off

Take Pledge •
Over 350 Students
Salute U. S. Flag
At Official Meeting
A national oath of allegiance to
the United States of America yes
terday marked official installation
of approximately 350 campus NYA
workers into jobs for the 1940-41
school year. The oath, given in the
music auditorium, was led by John
Anderson, education supervisor of
the NYA.
This is the first year such a
pledge has been required of Nation
al Youth Administration workers,
and it is compulsory for all stu
dents who wish their names placed
on government payrolls this fall.

“These are trying times,” Mr.
Anderson declared in an introduc
tory speech which preceded the
oath. "Allegiance and loyalty take
on greater meaning. We must have
a close relation between adminis
trators of such a program as NYA
and student workers.
“Americans do not want relief,”
he continued, “but rather a chance
to work. The government makes
an investment through NYA and
gives college men and women the
opportunity to fully earn their way
through school.”
Student’s Need Important
Karl W. Onthank, dean of per
sonnel, also addressed the group of
workers and work supervisors who
were present. He emphasized the
fact that NYA is based on need of
the student and that appointments
are allotted with special view to
possible educational value for the
man or woman employed.
Other speakers included Miss

ROTC Head Asks

Lyon Sees Need
For Larger Quota
Of Advanced Men
Owing to the demand by many
qualified applicants to take the
ROTC advanced course, the ROTC
department has requested the war
department at Washington to au
thorize an increase in its quota of
advanced students, Colonel R. M.
Lyons, head of the department, has
announced. The present quota of
100 has proved inadequate, he
stated, pointing out that over 40
qualified men are now on the wait
ing list for the advanced course.
A sharp decrease was noticed
this year, Colonel Lyons said, in
the number of men applying for
exemption from the required basic
military course. Though a num
ber of exemptions have already
been granted for such reasons as
outside work, physical disability or
over-age, only one student has re
quested exemption on the grounds
of being a conscientious objector.
