Imprisoned for ‘‘too factual” re

bath-taking as a highly-suspect
form of American sabotage.
His wife managed to obtain per

Young served as head of the INS

to the late fee each day until a
maximum of $5 is reached.
The total enrollment for winter
term was 3476. It is hoped that
spring term’s registration will
equal or excel that figure.
Graduate students- should report
to the registrar’s office in Johnson

April 5 will be the last day to

The number of men now regis

A number of Oreganas were sold

This puts the Oregana far over
their top estimates.

At Oregon Monday
Can the United States, within
the spirit of democracy and free
dom, evolve appeals as deeply
moving as the authoritarian ideal
of exalting nationalism to the
status of religion, asked Dr. Ben
Mark Cherrington, head of the de
partment of international relations
at the University of Denver, in an
address in the music school audito
rium, Monday evening.
Dr. Cherrington's speech con
cluded a one-day conference on
educating youth to the responsibil
ities of American citizenship, spon
sored by the Oregon State Sys
tem of Higher Education and the
Educational Policies commission.
Stressing isolation and a new
moral order Dr. Cherrington read
excerpts from a speech, “America
and the War,” by President Robert
M. Hutchins of the University of
“Democracy in our country
stands for freedom for sovereignty
of the state and conscience,” he
stated. “Can we,” he asked, “find
in these the equivalents to the dic
tator countries where the people
find their dignity and integrity
through the nation?”
Dr. Cherrington said that now
the United States must not under
estimate its adversaries. In deal
ing with the present war situation
he said that there are two points
of view: one for international re
lations and one for internal rela
tions. And there are two possible
outcomes, he said.
“One is a decisive and early vic
tory for axis powers which would
only result in an armed truce and
the other is a distinct victory for
Great Britain and her allies with
in a number of years.”

College of Musical Knowledge
Comes to UO for SDX Dance
Coed Does 'Jig'
With Kag Kgser
For Gertrude Haak
In Portland Show
She had the name of the song
crawling around right on the tip
of her tongue, but in the fervor of
excitement couldn’t blurt it out.
She let slip that she could do the
dance that came off with the tune,
so Kay Kyser peeled off his robe
of “knowledge” and cavorted
through the “Dark Town Strutters’
Ball” with Gertrude Hoak, Univer
sity of Oregon coed.
This happened during Kyser’s
college of musical knowledge tee
off in Portland last Friday, Mis3
Hoak being one of the contestants
for the musical quiz selected by
“The Old Professor” from the floor
of the Civic auditorium. The fresh
man journalism major “simply
loved” doing the jig with Kyser,
thought "Kay was grand.” And
about 6,000 hollering spectators,
including those hanging on the
rafters, let go with both hands
long enough to beat out a thunder
ous applause for Miss Hoak’s and
Kyser’s vigorous contortions.
Kyser brings his “College of Mu
sical Knowledge” to the University
of Oregon Friday for an hour show
preceding Sigma Delta Chi’s stu
dent union beneft dance.
