But in Eugene, the other day, there was unwelcome evidence that something of this nature is coming to tlie fore. In letters to President Roosevelt and to General John L. PeWitt, members of Military Mothers’ Service club cited the residence of a few Japanese students on the University of Oregon campus as “serious threats” to the safety of this area and asked that they be removed. The statement obviously was made without studying the actual conditions on the campus. For each of these Japanese students—all of them with high scholastic records—is living in a recognized campus living organization, obeying regular curfew laws imposed by the military officials, and is under close supervision at all times by University officials. There is no place in Oregon where there is less chance of an alien doing actual damage to defense than a college campus where regula tion of all students is the accepted thing. STUDENTS on the campus feel no rancor toward their Japa nese classmates. They know each of them well, know their outstanding records on the campus, and until these students indicate in some manner tendencies other than pro-American, they feel no sense of being “threatened” by their existence on the campus. When and if military Authorities find it expedient to ask Japanese students to leave the campus, then it can be done quietly and easily. There is no reason for hysteria in han dling evacuation, because most of the Japanese are loyal American citizens and the movement of these Japanese inland is designed merely as a safety measure in case there are some few fifth columnists in their midst. America is built on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Even in wartime, when these liberties must lie controlled for the national safety, there is no need for witch-hunting. Nothing Sacred By J. SPENCER MILLER Regarding (he S1)X Edition . . .

WASHINGTON — (ACPI — In case you haven’t noticed by this time, all college and univer sity students are eligible for ra tioning books and their half pound of sugar per week whether they live “on campus” or at home. It may be a good idea to get a book because there is likely to be further rationing of other products. However, it would be a good gesture to pass up pur chases of sugar if you don't need it. "Reach for a bond, instead of a sweet!” Perhaps we've a cam paign there. # * * Alien students in American col leges "absolutely do not" have to register for selective service. All they must do is prove to local draft boards that their non-resi dent status is bona fide. Selective service officials have been compelled to reiterate the exemption of “non-resident al iens" because of rumors floating about that alien students are sub ject to military service. The majority of these students are citizens of sister American republics, here on scholarships granted by their home govern ments or Uncle Sam. There is, however, nothing to prohibit their volunteering for military service. That, too, is done through the local draft board which turns over their qualifications and personal his tories to the War Department for final OK. Officials here are skittish when asked about the probable require ments for commissions in either the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps or its counterpart in the Navy (Bills establishing both or ganizations have passed the house.) It’s a good bet. though, that a college degree will help, just as it does in the case of men. For DesMoines, Iowa, is be ing considered by the War De partment as a West Point for wo men. Some 5,000 of them would be trained there in various war occupations. The Navy auxiliary unit would be open to any woman over 20. Grade for grade, women would re ceive the same pay as seamen. Duties would include decoding, airplane spotting and confidential secretarial work. On the load . . . We Must Act Now To Avoid Another Bataan . . . Adlan Needed By BON TREADOOLD Are we o;i the road to winning llie war! Last week. Time said, “President Roosevelt, the man who would not delegate power, suddenly delegated more of it than any other president in history. He set up his War Cabi net.” Don Nelson, boss of production; Leon Henderson, of prices; Vice-President Wallace and Milo Perkins, of economic warfare, and Faul McNutt, of manpower, wete given the tools necessary to do a real job. For such a step critics of the presi dent have been clamoring for over a year. Mr. Roosevelt also talked to Congress. Though action had been postponed until inflation was upon us, he advocated stern meas ures to deal with it and to pre vent it going farther. Although the Farm Block yapped at the suggestion that the farmers should only get 100 per cent in stead of 110 per cent of parity prices, most of the rest applaud ed. On the Way On the home front, then, we seem at last to be on the right track. How about the military front? We have suffered one de feat after another. Already a few have tried to point out funda mental errors of policy and have been received none too sympa thetically. Two examples are Lt. Col. Kernan, who wrote “Defense Will Not Win the War,’’ and Ma jor Alexander Seversky, who as serts that we have no real air power because we have no sepa rate air force. Crackpots?—may be. At least they deserve careful attention. Remember Billy Mit chell ? How about the psychological front ? James B. Reston, in an ar ticle “Are We Awake—Even Yet?” in the New York Times, declares that “the Anglo-Saxon peoples will not make the supreme sacrifices necessary until they understand their position is not only bad but desperate.” (“Anglo Saxon” sounds a little discordant with the Russians and the Chi nese doing most of the fighting up to now.) In other words, the press and radio are not yet mak ing clear our real peril. A New Froi.it? How about our allies ? The Churchill government (which just lost three parliamentary by-elec tions) announces the opening of a “second front” through R.A.F. attacks on Europe. That is no more true than an assertion that the Luftwaffe attacks on Eng land were an invasion. Continued inaction is added to the multiplied wrong decisions of the Tory gov ernment, highlighted by the cap ture of Lashio and the isolation of China. Burma goes down the drain after Singapore. The United Nations are fight ing on a worldwide front. It is too big a front to merely try to pre pare a successful defense every where.

He said he had' to send British troops to Singapore. So Lie Brit ish lost Singapore, and Libya too. We have the strength and the determination to win. But are we sure we are on the right track ? If not, let us make a few changes. What we do NOW may save some American boys from the dis eased and hopeless hell of another Bataan. By DON DILL Instead of taking pictures of the doings in an unrelated and scrambled manner, why not fol low a shoting script? By a script is meant to plan out the activities which you know will take place and build your pic ture t«king upon that. To begin with—you have to start. Original, hmmm ? But how do you start on a trip, a walk or hike, or bike ride ? There is the scene showing Joe College wai!^ ing for Betty Coed to get ready. Then comes the problem of get ting the lunch or tennis rackets or stuff into the car, on some one’s back, or on the bikes. Then they are off. Step Two Comes a stop to rest and stretch and the scenery. Picture Betty coyly throwing a handful of poison-oak leaves into Joe’s beaming pan. A good follow-up shot should be taken two days later on that stunt. Time goes on and at last Betty and Joe get to where they were going. Show'a general view of the park, beach, lake, or wherever the scenery is, with Betty and /or Joe in the fore ground blissfully drinking in the beauty of nature. Next comes whatever comes— swimming, ball playing, tennis and such. Shew all of it in a nat ural order as it is done. The eat ing of hot dogs, Betty with smoke in her eyes, Joe with a gashed finger after a struggle with a can opener and a can of beans. It is all part, of the fun which you want to remember so get it in black and white for future en joyment. Get It? There isn’t need for following it all through—you get the idea now. Further suggestions would be to include any signs or identi fying landmarks so that when showing the finished pix in the al bum to a friend it won’t be nec essary to give a running account in order for him to understand what it was all about. Try it. You’ll get a more co herent and satisfactory record of school days or vacation and work days. And that is why you take a camera with you. A sales tax is bad at all times and never wauld be worse than now, in the opinion of Dr. Clar ence E. Ayres, University of Tex as professor of economics. ^ Dr. Henry Gilman, professor of chemistry at Iowa State col lege, has been reelected councilor t-large of the American Chem ical society.
