Use of Combat
Gordon Bennett, sophomore in
architecture and allied arts, spoke
io*the sophomore ROTC class on
the use of the infantry-artillery
combat team Tuesday, April 21.
Mr. Bennett served as a first lieu
tenant in the field artillery in the
South Pacific theater.
He explained the success of the
use of artillery by the infantry. In
open areas, self-propelled 75-milli
meter guns accompany the rifle
squads, firing point-blank into the
enemy to overcome their resist
Where the terrain is rough, guns
of support, mainly 105 millimeter
howitzers, which fire on enemy
string points in attack to break up
their units, are substituted for
motor guns. Heavy weapons, too,
are used as infantry arms, consist
ing mainly of heavy machine guns,
light and heavy trench mortars.
Miles to the rear are the “long
toms” and heavy guns and how
itzers of regimental, divisional,
corps, and army artillery.
A new organization in the U. S.
army is so arranged that any in
fantryman can call for any or all
of these engines of destruction to
clear the way for his bayonet. This
gives such a hellish concentration
orUany point that the dazed Nazis
often ask to see the “automatic
artillery,” Bennett explained.
In coastal actions, the navy
sends liaison parties ashore to ac
company the army infantry, to
direct the fire of naval guns. At
Cassino the navy smashed an as
sault upon army units by the Nazi
tanks. The British did the same in
1940 at Normandy.
Dahlberg to Head
W. A. Dahlberg, director of the
University speech and dramatic
arts division, was elected Pacific
Forensic league president for the
coming year at a recent meeting
of the league held at the Univer
sity of Idaho. The 1946 meeting,
over which Mr. Dahlberg will pre
side, will take place at the College
of the Pacific, Stockton, Cali
Mr. Dahlberg reported that 12
western colleges, including Oregon,
attended the convention held April
18, 19, 20, and 21. All types of
student speech contests were spon
sored, notably the intercollegiate
discussion program which lasted
three days. This year’s group con

WE DON'T VVANTA MINCE WOIDS, NOR BEAT BUSHES, WE
ACCEPT, SAY BA BOYS
, OFFICIAL REPLY TO THE LAW SCHOOL CHALLENGE
In our characteristic, to the point, straightforward, time-saving
manner, we make reply to the Shysters’ challenge, that verbose, in
comprehensible document that besmeared the third page of the Oregon
Daily Emerald on April 27, 1945. At the outset, we wish to say that
we were not the least bit befuddled by the stilted, musty, bombastic
combinations of Greek, Latin, and Yiddish epithets and legal termin
ology which obviously permeated the minds of the Law School Larvae.
’Tis a shame indeed that a more constructive use cannot be made
of those foreign dictionaries.
It is only after two hours of heated discussion in a deadlocked
decision, with pity in our hearts and remorse in our souls, that we,
the B. A. School (Better Activities) condescend, stoop, or waive
the privilege of rank and dignity to associate with such a motley
aggregation of drunken, spendthrift, scoundrels, and skunks, for the
duration of a game of softball—the mechanics and intricacies of which
are surely beyond their comprehension.
For years, yea, for verily eons, we have inflicted upon them such
decisive drubbings the very disgrace of which has seriously decreased
the enrollment of said second-hand diploma-mill to our rear. We sadly
fear that if we are not more human in our chastisement in the future
that there will no longer be such a C grade institution. However, we
have made no special arrangements with the Board of Higher Educa
tion to make said ex-institution one of the branches of the B. A.
School (Benignant Association) in order to create a greater choice
of electives for our freshmen. LL.D.'s, J.D.’s. etc., et al can be obtained
by taking one term of Professor Riddlesbarger's business law course.
In regard to the charge that the Business Administration students
have diverted the “stream of feminine pulchritude,” it js interesting
to note that the very quintessence of feminine loveliness still passes
the front portals of Commerce hall enroute from Oregon to Deady,
and that offiy the law school is avoided. It appears illogical that these
beauties would continue to pass the Business Administration school,
were it not for the obvious attraction of the array of Herculean man
liness assembled there in studious discussion of contemporaneous busi
Furthermore, it is not difficult to understand why University coeds
avoid 13th street in the vicinity of Fenton hall. No self-respecting
woman will continuously subject herself to the lewd stares, raucous
whistling, and juvenile quips of anemic, concave-chested, round
shouldered, semi-animated goons loitering about ankle deep in Sensa
tion and Avalon cigarette butts collected from the B. A. (Better
Athletes) trash dump immediately connecting their hermitage.
It must be remembered that we are men of industry and business,
and any time taken from such arduous endeavors in order to satisfy
such a brazen challenge is to be lauded as a distinct sacrifice on our
part, but we are always ready to accommodate even such an insig
nificant challenge as this. Should the “plaintiffs” be so foolhardy as
to present their emaciated bodies On the Field of Honor at the ap
pointed time, May 5, 1945, words cannot express the pleasure our gal
lant lads shall take in administering the customary thorough thrashing.
