With the recent defeat of the President’s proposal to freeze
workers to war jobs and to apple other sweeping' manpower
controls to the nation, cognizance might be taken of the sig
nificance which the bill would have exercized upon the uni
versities of the nation had it been passed, apart from its im
mediate effect upon the general public.
If the bill'- proposal to draft all 4-F’s into industry had
had passed the senate last Tuesday, all college men on this
campus w ho rank in this category, and the majority do, would
have been forced to resign. The effect upon the liberal arts
education would have been immediate and terrific. One of its
most cherished and vital principles—that of the need for a
core of well-trained and well-educated young men to act as the
1( ;ider> and thinkers for each generation—would have been
sidetracked into oblivion. I'm* once the principle of education
has been overlooked bv a nation for other more material and
immediate purposes, then not only has the country lost any
semblance to responsible and intelligent leadership hut it has
al.-'> lost its nativ e impulse to education w hich rests so pre
cariously in the individual heart.
The closing of any university doors should he the signal
for concern among the public. The lack of proper education in
a -tate inevitable results in the loss to that nation of its last
source of butlers who might he able to secure a lasting peace
for its people based upon all the concepts, moral and ethical,
which are inherent in a liberal arts training.
Although the hill lias nut been definitely dropped it appears
to have been doomed by the sweeping 46 to 29 vote against it.
j\\ ilh this last possible source of manpower closed to the gov
ernment, perhaps proper legislation can be passed which mav
efl’ectivelv do away with large-scale idling in war plants and
with the distribution of government war projects'which results
in Mime cities lacking adequate employment and others loaded
p i-t endurance. Whatever the solution that congress mav
tome to, education has been set aside as a principle, wider in
stupe and of more ultimate importance to the nation, than the
jiivsent manpower shortage.

The >lorm of protest greeting announcement ol plans for
f'tra vote- lor the "Bio powers" is a healthv sign indicating
a desire on the part of a large portion of Americans to cooperate
■with, rather than dominate, the small countries.
An international organization can evolve in several direc
tion-'. It can become merely a mouthpiece for directives from
the most highly industrialized and populated countries or an
actual United Nations participated in be all peace-loving
’I he obvious purpose ol the pending1 organization is to main
t. m peace, but no such rosy future can be attained unless the
Jailer attitude is taken. Countries not in the drivers seat will
soon tire of an organization dictatoriallv run bv the “chosen"
three or tour, and the ideal of world peace through an inter
national organization will come tumbling down around the ears
ol those nations attempting to run the whole show.
A workable organization can be secured ohlv through limit
ing the sovereignty of all nations with no exceptions allowed.

Portland really has its advantages,

a week spent on a farm was more
enjoyable. We don’t think that
glow is attributable to a mere cow.
For those inquisitive souls who
have wondered whatever became

is that he is still playing the field,

It’s nice to see Lorraine La
Baugh Knoles, Sigma hall, back on
the campus after a term's ab

with her husband.
Theme song of the new term,
dedicated to Gamma hall, is “I
wonder what’s become of Sally,
that old pal of mine.”
Speaking of theme songs, Jean
McClanathan’s new one is “John
always sends me pretty flowers.”
Even the girls at Hendricks are
getting weary of it.
A true indication of Spring is

OX THE JAZZ SIDE

Greetings. Hope you all had a
fine and restful vacation. Now we
are in fine shape to start a term
full of activities, and sunshine, we
hope. Lots of news, so enough of
While in Portland last week, I
had the privilege of sitting in on
Lyn Glied’s Tuesday night record
program, Collectors Jazz Classics.
For those of you who haven’t
heard it, it is on KGW, Tuesday
nights at 12:15 to 1:15. Got some
fine publicity for the school, too.
Incidentally I must mention Mel
Bailey, who is the announcer for
the program. Rather, was the an
nouncer, for it was his last pro
gram. He is now working for
KEX. Hope this satisfies him.
Also met a fellow by the name
of Russ Graham. Plays in the orch
at the Cloud Room. He is quite an
authority on jazz, and I hope to
have him down soon for a couple
of jazz lectures. Invaded Dot Gar
rett’s Madrona Record Shop, and
came away with some fine plat
ters. It's the only shop in this
territory where you can find all
the latest and best of all types of
Jazz Is Back to Stay
Flash! Good news for those of
you who have been asking for a
resumption of jass lectures. Next
week the first of a series will be
presented. And as lecturers we will
be fortunate in having Capt. Ted
Hallock, former U. of O. student,
bandleader, and columnist, and
Hoyt Franchere, popular professor
on the campus. Three years ago
Capt. Plallock, George Carey, and
Mr. Franchere gave several lec
tures, meeting with tremendous
success. Since then people have
been asking for a resumption of
these lectures, but to no avail, due
mainly to .the enforced absence
from this campus of Ted and
George. Watch for an announce
ment of the time and place. Will
be next week, though.

ON THE CLASSICAL SIDE
By BETTY JANE BENNETT .
Those of you who saw “A SstBg
to Remember” will recall the brill
iant, though unmentioned, pianist
who performed off stage. This
pianist was Jose Iturbi who is cur
rently featured in a Victor “Show
piece Album.” This is called “Mu
sic to Remember” and contains
four Chopin numbers played in the
film. These include the familiar
“Mazurka in B flat Major,” the
“Waltz in A Flat” (more popu
larly known as “Minute Waltz” be
cause of the timing indicated in
the score), the “Fantasie Im
promptu,” and the celebrated
“Waltz in C Sharp Minor.” This
album also contains two pagefepf
text and pictures devoted to Cho
pin’s life and works, and a third to
Iturbi’s, and is a bargain at $1.75.
Two single records which have
enjoyed wide popularity since their
recent release are Schubert’s “Ave
Maria” sung by Marion Anderson,
and John Charles Thomas’ record
ing of ‘‘The Lord’s Prayer” by
Mallotte. Miss Anderson sing3
Schubert's song, an invariable last
encore on her program, with great
feeling. Mr. Thomas’ interpreta
tion is no less full of sacred emo
The Berlioz masterpiece “Harold
in Italy” has been recorded recent
ly by the Boston symphony. This
is the first complete and only Am
erican recording of the work which
is in the form of a concerto for
viola and orchestra. William Prim
rose, already praised highly in this
column for his recording of two
Dvorak melodies and one of the
greatest living violists, plays this
work. Dr. Serge Koussevitsky con
ducts the orchestra whose perform
ance of the colorful “Berliozan”
effects is outstanding.
