■Rocket Age Strikes UO Campus
Luck Rogers has at last come to the Oregon campus. In
cluded among late shipments of new equipment to the Uni
versity ROl C department are “bazookas," “grease guns,”
and Garand rifles, while on requisition are new uniforms.
Heralding the advent of the “rocket age" are several new
type bazookas, the army’s successful light anti-tank weapon.
1 hese are the newest modification of the tvne and include
such improvements as sights ad
justable for windage and elevation
and “breaking down” into two sec
tions for ease of transportation.
Although rocket projectiles are
part of the shipment, these will be
used for “dummy” demonstrations
only, and the Ducks need have no
fear of futuristic barrages leveled
against their fair campus.
Grease-Gun Described
The grease gun, more accurately
•^described as the M-3, caliber 45,
sub-machine gun, is a fully-auto
matic type which was developed
during the last war. It was intend
ed to replace the Thompson sub
machine gun of Chicago gangster
fame when it was found the Thomp
son required too long a period of
production. The new gun is a
“stamped-out” model and is pro
duced at the nominal cost of $2.30.
It waa supplied in great numbers to
resistance or underground groups
in Europe but will not be used for
anything more than demonstration
And, finally, the department’s
1903 model Springfields have been
replaced by 300 Garand, M-l, semi
automatic rifles which are the
standard shoulder weapons of the
army. However, these will be used
for drill purposes only, firing being
limited to the 22-caliber rifle on the
Springfield frame.
New Uniforms Coming
The new uniforms on requisition
for the ROTC are officer-type and
will be known as “interim” uni
forms. They will be used only until
adequate shipments of the standard
dress for the regular army are re
Basic students will get “green”
blouses, trousers, and overseas caps,
while advanced students will wear
green blouses, “pink” trousers, and
the billed, service-type cap. Both
basic and advanced will be issued
“doeskin” overcoats.
Also received by the ROTC de
partment are new 30 and 50 caliber
machine guns, these also being
used for demonstration purposes

mocracy, he said, “but we don’t
have democracy yet. We don’t
have democracy for ten million
Negroes, or for the Japanese in
Oregon, or for the Mexicans in
Arizona, or for white people in
the downtrodden minority groups.”
He attributed the lack of de
mocracy largely to the lack of
accurate information. The public,
he said, does not get all the facts.
We do not have a free press; ra
dio, and othef sources of informa
tion are controlled by groups in
terested in slanting the facts,
Robeson declared.
Free Speech
Speaking with the feeling and
sincerity of an evangelist, Robe
son emphasized his belief that the
public must be well informed and
that the only way the public will
“get the facts” was through the
few channels still open. Free
speech, he implied, is still per
mitted on the lecture platform.
He referred to the Oregonian’s
editorial Wednesday and explained'
that he did not agree with the
conservative view point that free
dom and democracy must neces
sarily be a slow process. Robeson
said he would not urge Negroes to
wait “patiently” (referring to the
editorial) for freedom and equal

rights. Waiting might mean a
thousand years, he said.
His son, educated in Russia,
will attend Cornell university and
play football there, but, the singer
explained, will enroll in the Uni
versity of Moscow after gradua
tion. Robeson believes that the
United States must “get along"
with Russia because that nation
if; “one of the great nations of
the world” and has “given free
dom to millions.”
The singer was a dinner guest
at the women’s dormitory and con
versed with Bob Reynolds and
other Negro students on the cam
pus. He said he would probably
return to the campus spring term.
Future Nurses to Band
Pre-nursing majors on the cam

Miss Olive Slocum, assistant pro
fessor of nursing education, will be
adviser for the group.
