UO Theft ofOSC
Talent Revealed
A theft comparable to the
stealing by California of Ore
gon’s Crater lake and Mount
Hood was uncovered Saturday
morning. Shortly after Satur
day’s Emerald was circulated,
staff member were informed that
the University had unintention
ally “stolen” Jean Heather, iden

P.S.: Her real name is Jean

First All-Campus
V League Meet Set
The first all-campus meeting of the Total Victory league will To
held tonight at 7:30 in alumni hall of Gerlinger. Everyone, regardless
of his opinions on the subject of postwar plans, is urged to come.
The idea is to look forward and to get people thinking about the
future, stresses Peggy Magill, president.
But the idea of community discussions, and on the campus the stu
dent body is a community, is not new. Old town meetings dated 'way;
back to colonial times. Entire townships were run on the theory that
everyone had ideas about how to solw certain problems, both present
and future. Some towns in this country are still organized under thi^
plan, with regular meetings, when everyone is expected to come and
"say their mind.”
Early in the 1930's the University of Oregon was selected by state
community planners as the institution which could best encourage and
direct open forums and community organization. Under the direction
of the social science department and with the help of state leaders in
this type of public meeting, groups met and talked over plans. But the
depression and other factors pushed the plan into the background.
Later a student international relations club was organized to discuss
the same problems, but it was later disbanded, also. The Total Victory
league hopes to arouse the enthusiasm which flared when these
previous groups began—not with the hope of outlining any course of
action, but with the aim of discussing all problems which will arise
after the war.
