^j^RMED force courses, both extension and technical, resem
ble a vast international school. Certain service men are in
a position where they have time to take extension work ; others
are sent directly by the armed force to a technical training cen
ter. In both cases, recruit has a chance for University credit in
subjects studied. Just what courses will count and just how
many hours the course receives depend on the individual school
which receives the record. Oregon, for example, could not give
credit for armed force courses which have no connection what
soever with this University. There is every reason to believe,
however, that many subjects, which can be interpreted in terms
of math, physics, psychology, or other specialized work will
receive accredited hours toward the student’s degree.
It is similar to the case of a student who transfers from Har
vard, Washington State or any other accredited school to Ore
gon. Some of his work may be of such nature that it cannot be
accepted here. But a large part of it possibly is good for Uni
versity degree credit.

'T'HIS UNUSUAL opportunity is offered men of the armed
forces through the Armed Forces Institute. Army, navy,
and marine work is of such high calibre that it has been recog
nized by all regional accrediting agencies in the United States.
Soon after the student enters service, he can sign with the In
stitute, and thereafter that body will keep track of all technical
and extension training he receives.
This step to grant academic credit eliminates all the incon
sistency of World War I in granting hours for armed service.
One school would offer generous “blanket” credit for every year
in the army, another school would give no credit. Hundreds of
other institutions ranged somewhere between these two ex
tremes. The serviceman of World War II can return with the
complete satisfaction that the mental training he has received
will be recognized somewhat equally in every institution of the
country. The fact that educational accrediting agencies also
recognize the armed force courses as “official” eliminates need
for special “exams” from each school before granting credit in
Seniors requiring only a few hours to graduate can now re
ceive their degree while in fighting forces under a standard
ized plan. Other students, anxious to speed post-war gradua
tion, can build toward a degree while in training. The plan
will not help every student: Some, like Joseph Stalin, will be
too busy fighting to think of anything else. But to those who
are picked for technical training, or to those who have time for
extension courses, the plan is a definite opportunity for educa
tion while fighting a war.

'J^ODA\ at cloven o'clock Dr. K. Stanley Jones, a missionary
who has spent SO years working with the people of India,
will address the University in the final assembly of the term...
Dr. Jones' visit conies at an extremely interesting time view
ed in the light of world circumstances. Gandhi is in the six
teenth day of his proposed 20-day fast and each day is report
ed to be growing weaker.
If the leader of the Hindu people in India should pass on
as a result of his fast the situation in the far east might well
become extremely serious. To date the Indian people have co
operated to some extent with the British government.
* * *
J\' HIS thirty years work in the East Dr. Jones has reached
all classes, and should be well versed on the ideas of all con
cerning the British and their allies.
Perhaps he will venture an opinion regarding the situation
should Gandhi die as a result of his protest, and it is highly
probable that he will have some very interesting information
about the whole situation in the Oriental theater of the war.
War on war, Dr. Jones is a man who has seen India from the
inside. Spending half of the normal life span of a man in a
country strange to most of us should in itself be a high recom
mendation for today's program. •—T. J. B.
(The following comment on our
problems in establishing peace
after World War II was submit
ted by Walter Korel, junior in
philosophy. It presents a new
slant to post-war questions,
which are under such heavy cross
fire at this time.—Ed.)
As the war progresses, we find
increasing emphasis being placed
upon post-war planning. The es
tablishment of a just and lasting
peace in some instances looms
more significant than the actual
military capitulation of the Axis.
It has been said that this diver
sion from strict concentration on
military matters is detrimental
to the war effott. However, most
Americans realize that it is in
reality only concentrated prac
tical mindedness. To believe that
a social order in which the na
tions of the world can dwell to
gether in peace can and will be
established is perhaps one of the
few things which reconciles us
to our status of belligerency.
As a result of the faulty peace
efforts which followed in the
wake of World War I, we have
war today. Now more than ever
before we realize that we must
not only be victorious on the mil
itary fronts, but we must con
quer the world on the battlefield
of ideals as well.
In order to accomplish this pur
pose we must render some con
vincing demonstration that de
mocracy is the highest type of
social order. Thus far we have
failed miserably. Small wonder
that well educated political phil
osophers have criticized our way
of life as being unable to adapt
itself to changing world condi
tions, and that the nations of
Europe have turned to strange
and unfamiliar doctrines in the
vain hope of restoring their na
If we succeed in convincing the
world of the workability of a so
ciety based upon the fundamental
doctrines of civil, political, and
economic justice, we must then
be prepared to assume the re
sponsibility of its inauguration.

Local music talk is centering about the annual AFM union
benefit deal at the Winterland the other night. Slated to ap
pear were George Carey, Wayne Ryan, Herschel Davis, and
Art Holman. Carey jumped, Ryan flopped, Davis stunk, and
Holman failed to drop around; batting average, .250.

the straight dope on why Mr. H.

A certain local marine, who is
now and then slightly off the
beam, has made another mistake.
He thinks that because I say “I
knew a Theta once” that I want
to meet each and every Theta.
Now this is not a bad idea, but
it so happens that I have one
particular Theta in mind. Let me
tell you about my progress with
On the Boat
Sunday I am standing outside
the Heilig hashing over Thetas
and Pi Phis and Alpha Phis with
the doorman, whom I happen to
know, when suddenly the door
opens and out comes this Theta.
Naturally I stand there and gape
slightly, and finally she says,
Now this tremendous progress
is encouraging, for it seems that
I am finally getting on the boat.
I am so happy I almost run and
try to break down the doors, but
I decide not to because:
1. I have not had my vitamin
2. The doors are two inches
3. My life insurance premiums
are not paid up.
4. She is escorted by a charac
ter who has had his scrap metal
planted on her since the begin
ning- of fall term.
Point No. 4 is somewhat of a
sad situation, as you can see. It
looks as if there will be some
slight difficulty before I get to
know this Theta better. However,
there may still be a chance, so I
will call this Theta up right now
and ask her for a coke date. Let’s
see, the number is 2340, isn’t it?
