Streit to Stress *Union Now* Theory
At Assembly Monday in Gerlinger
Clarence Streit, author of the book and the
movement, “Union Now,” will address University
students at a Gerlinger assembly Monday, October
13. The lecture will be given at 11 a.m.
“We need to see,” commented the author in his
latest book, “not only where we are but far ahead,
all the way to our destination, if we are to move
toward it as swiftly as we need to move.”
Mr. Streit first won national prominence upon
publication of his first book, which presented liis
i theories of international democratic cooperation.
Classes scheduled for 11 o’clock Monday morn
ing will meet next Thursday, October 16, at 11 a.m.
. because of the assembly Monday.
His organization, Federal Union, Inc., numbers
several millions of followers and maintains world
wide headquarters in Washington, D.C. His far
seeing plan for a world union of democracies is the
result of many years of«European reporting and
close actual contact with the universal political
Stressing the political, military, commercial,
financial, and cultural unity of free nations, the
I author avers that all democratic nations should be
unified under a government based on the lines of
l - ^
. -— -——
the American constitution.
Among the free nations of the earth he lists
the Pan-American Union, the British Common
wealth of Nations, France, Belgium, the Nether
lands, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and
Finland. All these countries would be bound to
gether by common citizenship, defense, economy,
finance, and communication. Any other nation
could then join the Union, upon acceptance of the
Bill of Rights itno their way of life.
Twenty-five years ago Mr. Streit was working
his way through the University of Montana by
surveying the public lands of the Rockies, the Bad
Lands, and Alaska. He became editor of his school
paper and upon graduation became an officer in
the Intelligence department of the U. S. army.
In 1919 he was chosen as a Rhodes scholar and
studied at Oxford until 1923, making his education
• profitable by acting as European correspondent for
the Philadelphia Ledger. He covered most of the
major news-breaks for American newspaper syn
dicates. Since 1939, however, he has spent most of
his time writing and lecturing on his favorite sub
ject, “Union Now.”
He will speak Monday on “The Democracies*
Answer to Hitler.” Charlotte Allen will play a flute
solo, “Marguerite” by Frank Keller, preceding the
talk. Her accompanist will be Margoline Lc Beck.

Improper Notification Given
As Basis for Judicial Decree
Nominations and by-laws approved at an assembly of the Clay#’
of ’45 Thursday, Oetober 2, were declared “null and void*’ by tlho
AS 170 judiciary committee in a decision released Friday.
Jim Frost, ASl’O first vice-president in ch&rge of freshman or
ganization, estimated Friday evening that another meeting of t!h©
class would be called within two weeks. At the next meeting it wil*
again be necessary for the class to consider by-laws and nominations.
The committee declared the
proceedings that night invalid
because adequate notification had
not appeared in the Emerald.
The constitution requires that
class meetings be announced in
the Emerald one week before the
meeting, and again the day of
the meeting. According to this
ruling, it will be impossible for
the class to meet before Tues
day, October 21.
The meeting had been sched
uled for the music auditorium
and had so been announced in
the Emerald. Late Thursday af
ternoon, however, ASUO Presi
dent Lou Torgeson, in charge of
the meeting, was notified that the
auditorium was not available.
Torgeson then arranged to
use Villard assembly for the
meeting and directed that living
organizations be called by tele
phone and notified of the change.
Persons were stationed in the
music building to direct others to
Villard for the meeting.
The judiciary committee found
the meeting illegal because of
the time and place change with
out proper notification. Of the
telephone calls and persons sta
tioned in the music hall, the com
mittee’s written report said:
“Though all living organiza
tions were contacted, one was in
formed improperly, and two were
informed too late. Those students
living off the campus were in no
way informed prior to the an
nounced time Of the meeting.
Persons were stationed at the mu
sic hall to direct all comers to
Villard but they did not do their
Shack Rats to Meet
There will be a meeting of
all members of the news staff
of the Emerald in room 6, jour
nalism at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday,
October 14. All members of the
reporting, copy desk, and night
staffs should be present. An
nouncement of new appoint-,
ments will be made.

By BOB FOWTLLS
In a white gown decorated
with silver spangles, Grace Moore,
American soprano, last night be
gan the University’s concert sc
ries in McArthur court.
Highlights of Miss Moore’:*
concert were her new interpreta
tions of the old favorites. All *C

long to any artist capable of pro
ducing a new interpretation of
Ciribiribin. Also greatly appre
ciated was her fresh, dramatic
rendition of Puccini’s aria, “Un
bel di.” a piece which has been
badly battered in recent*years on
the amateur programs.
For the main part, the first
half of the program to
go over the audience's head1, be
ing composed mainly of heavy
French concert songs. Especially
enjoyed, however, was Bizet’;*
“Ouvre ton coeur,” a sparkling
gypsy air from J.he original score
of “Carmen.” . ,
As is usually the case, the pa
tience of the audience was re
warded during the second half
with lighter and more well known
songs. Of special note was "Mi
Curly-Headed Babbie” by George
Clutsam and in contrast, Mal
lote’s setting of the Lord’s
Prayer. Included in her encores*
were Mimi’s aria from La Bo
heme, Schubert’s Serenade, "Tho
Old Refrain,” by Kriesler, and
Her accompanist was Ariel
Rubstein, director of the Elliscn
White Conservatory in Portland,
who was chosen for the job be
cause of illness of her regular ac
companist. After the intermis
sion he played transcriptions of
two Bach organ preludes and hi9
own Prelude in G minor.
After the concert, Miss Moore
commented that this was the
most attentive and appreciative
college audience she had ever
sung before and that she looked-'
forward to returning soon.
