Questions But No Answers
It there isn't a lot of discussion and dissention over the pro
gram for the Eugene Civic Music association educational
activities concert series, we’ll miss our guess. The series is
not programmed to suit University needs.
Tonight's concert, featuring Salvatore Baccaloni, the comic,
will doubtless start it off. Students don t as a rule like theii
concerts on Saturday night.
Things will get worse before they get better. Helen Traubel
sings ai the court next Friday night. Saturday afternoon there
is an Oregon-Washington football game in Portland. Experience
would indicate that the campus will be rather deserted Friday
night, and that only a few students will take advantage of theii
chance to hear Helen Traubel.
Two other concerts are sceduled for Sundays. I hat means
that four of the eight concerts on the program are scheduled at
unfavorable times for University students. The other four are
on week nights, the traditional times for the concerts.
This is an unfortunate situation, and is a little hard to defend
if we go on the theory that the concerts were arranged primarily
for University student body. But there are the members of the
Eugene Civic Music association who also must be considered.
It stands to reason that these members would like concerts
■ on the week ends.
h. Gaylord, who runs the associations end ot the senes,
and who books the artists, reports that he tried to get Baccaloni
on another date. He says he was limited to a period between the
9th and the 14th, and that he was able to get McArthur court only
on the 11th. So we are going to hear Baccaloni Saturday night
and like it, we guess.
He reports that the court could have been used for the con
cert Monday night, but that the association did not want two
concerts in one week. Helen Traubel will be here Friday.
J4ow the Friday situation, which is made worse by the fact
that Willamette Park has booked Stan Kenton that night. Ob
viously the association couldn’t forsee the Kenton engagement,
and Mr. Gaylord points out that students who really want to hear
Miss Traubel can go to the concert Friday night and go up to
■ Portland Saturday morning for the game. That is an answer, of
' sorts, but is doesn't satisfy anybody. Most students will still want
to go to Portland Friday night and also hear Miss Traubel that
These are the questions. There are answers somewhere. This
page doesn’t presume to know where.
Letter From Germany
The letter was mailed August 15 and arrived in Eugene just
this week, it was a single sheet, folded twice and sealed around
the edges. Stamps showed it had passed through Civil Censor
ship on its way to “Oregon Emerald, Eugene, Oregon. U.S.A."
The letter was from a Miss Anna-Maria Braun in Munich, and
sought members for her International Correspondence bureau.
A copy follows:
v Lindwurmstrasse 126a
Germany, Bavaria, U.S. Zone
Dear Sir or Madam:
After having established an INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENCE
BUREAU, I on behalf of members on my waiting list- take leave to
apply to you. May I request you to put me in touch with readers of your
paper interested in friendly correspondence ?
Having been secluded from the outside world these long years, and
yearning for a real democratic enlightenment and a personal contact
from man to man across boarders isic), my members would only too
gladly welcome and answer letters from abroad. Most of my members
(among them scientists, students, experts, businessmen and other well
educated ladies and gentlemen, and also hobbyists, housewives and
even young boys and girls) have a fairly good knowledge of English,
but would also be pleased to write in German, if desired. I am sure, my
members will try and give their pen friends every satisfaction.
Individuals and groups of persons may communicate with me direct
stating their particulars-and-interests; All-letters -will be -attended -to
One World Club Policy Told
In First of Group Series
(Editor's Note: Last year the One World club
presented weekly articles on national and interna
tional affairs. This series will be carried on this year.
Today's article, the first of the new series, outlines
the purposes and objectives of the group.)
By ONE WORLD CLUB
Our civilization has been shaken by two vast,
terrible wars in a period of one generation. Even
now, the hatred and devastation brought about by
these conflicts again threatens the peace and secur
ity of the world. We are faced with the prospect of
utter destruction unless world problems can be
These problems cannot be solved by nationalism
or power politics. Understanding and cooperation,
are vitally necessary. Open-minded discussion and
sympathetic appraisal of the viewpoints of all peo
ples are essential to a lasting solution. This can. be
accomplished only through a. union, of all the coun
tries of the world, acting in a democratic manner,
with due regard for the rights of all humanity, re
gardless of race, creed or color.
In the belief that college students can. and. should
take a more active part in the affaris of our com
munity, our country, and. of the world, the members
of this organization pledge themselves to oppose big
otry, intolerance, and. oppression in any and all
forms, and to work always toward the realization of
a competent world government which will guar
antee liberty, freedom, peace, smumj,
racy to all the peoples of the world.
Thus reads the preamble of the constitution of
the One World club. Organized fall term of 1943 by
a group of students who believed in the necessity
for world government, it has since devoted its ef
forts to promoting such a federation and to destroy
ing the prejudices which raise formidable barriers
in the path'of peace.
IVe soon realized that a permanent and success
ful government was impossible as long as the can
cerous growths of hatred and prejudice were al
lowed to add new malignant material to their al
ready oversize tumors. We felt that the only possible
way of counteracting these disease bearers was to
find, the truth.
Accordingly the club decided to invite faculty
members and other informed persons to discuss dif
ferent aspects of world problems at weekly meet
ings. Racialism, religion, economics, politics, and
militarism were some of the topics of discussion last .
year. Similar fields will be covered again this year.
These subjects are presented, in an. open-minded man
ner; dogmatism is not welcomed. Wo do not at
tempt to formulate any general, plans, but try to
separate the truth from the lies and. myths.
Persons interested, in joining us are welcome

and all applications linked up. If possible, two or three reply coupons
should be enclosed to cover expenses, and also—to save time—an intro
ductory letter to future pen friends over here will be appreciated.
• Pen friendships are a step towards the creation of that international
friendship and goodwill that is so essential to understanding and peace,
don’t you think so?
(Miss) Anna-Maria Braun
That’s it. Fraulein Anna-Maria Braun and associates are
looking for correspondents. Her plan seems to offer some rather
entertaining possibilities for excellent exchanges, and Univer
sity students would not be made less narrow by learning some
thing of the views and experiences of the former enemy.
It isn’t necessary to go overboard for the “build up Germany
school that has swept this country the past few months. \\ e can
still be decent. If friendly exchanges of letters between German
citizens and American citizens are impossible, then there is little
hope for amicable relations between the two Governments
(when the Germans get one).
A plan like Miss Braun’s might also be useful to the One
World club, a group dedicated to peace, or to the Deutsche Ge
sellschaft, a group interested in learning the culture and civili
zation of the former enemy.
