It seems quite a long way from
majoring in math at the Univer
sity of Oregon—to commanding
one of the navy's gray fish—and
Lt. Commdr. McKinney has risen
to prominence the hard way.
After being graduateed from
Oregon, he flashed back to the
east coast where he graduated
from the United States naval
academy at Annapolis—in 1926.
His next venture was into sub
marine duty—and this was in
terrupted when he was named for
special detail in Washington, D.
Evidently Lt. Commdr. McKin
ney felt the call to academic life
because he soon entered the law
school of George Washington uni
versity—and received his LL.B.
degree from that institution. But,
typically, three days after his
graduation—he took over the
command of a submarine.
He’s 100 per cent navy—in the
best sense of the word . . . and
his biography reads in the cus
tomary naval fashion. Cruises
through the Panama canal and
around South America, sojourns,
in line of duty, in Hawaii.
In fact, it was while he was in
Hawaii that his family learned
he had become engaged to Miss
Janet Thompson. . . . They now
have two children.
The lieutenant " commander’s
achievements are a matter of
special pride to Eugeneans. He is
a home town product—having
been graduated from Eugene high
school—and he once lived at 192
W. 19th street.
While attending the University
he indulged in the usual round of
activities—joined Phi Kappa Psi
fraternity, enjoyed extensive
bull sessions with the boys,
crammed for finals . . . and some
how developed the background
that has made him one of the
prominent submarine leaders in
World War II.
What Lt. Commdr. McKinney
is doing now is shrouded in the
usual necessary smoke screen of
military secrecy. However, if it
is in line with his past procedure,
the fish in the depths of one of
the world's oceans—probably
have a grim looking McKinney
commanded companion—on the
prowl for Axis gnats. •
Pierce Sees Early Ally
Win, Jap 'So-Sorry' Truce
Ex-Governor of Oregon Walter
M. Pierce who also served this
state as congressman of the sec
ond district for ten years pre
dicted Monday that the present
conflict will end in an early de
feat of Germany within the next
year and that the Japanese will
be expected to prefer a condi
tional surrender along- the lines
of their former "so sorry" policy.
Mr. Pierce predicts that the al
lies will accept this offer.
The post-war danger, Mr.
Pierce believes, will be in allow
ing the now interned Japs to in
filtrate again to the Pacific
coast. He will discuss the Japan
ese problem more thoroughly at
the luncheon to be held at the
Osburn hotel Wednesday noon.
Pierce, a democrat himself,
feels that the present wartime
emergency justifies silence on
any discussion concerning a
fourth term for President Roose
volt. Ho believes that no attempt
will be made to nominate Roose
velt as a candidate for the presi
dency after the war.
"We should think a great deal
more about winning- this war in
stead of so many other matters,"
he said. "No party has the exclu
sive right to say that the govern
ment of the other party is good
or bad," he added.
Mr. Pierce expressed the opin
ion that there will be no danger
of alien attacks upon the conti
nental United States. He blames
the recent censure of the last
congress upon the fascist element
in the country.
Ex-Governor Pierce, whose two
daughters graduated from the
University, is very pleased with
the appearance of the campus.
He considei's it among the most
beautiful campuses in the coun
try, ranking with those of Yale.
Harvard, and Princeton.
