r
ternational power politics. Powers
he believes are derived from the as
sumption of monopoly over nation
al security.
Graduated from West Point in
1917 and serving in both World
Wars until his retirement in 1944,
the general speaks from the point
I of view of one who has been on the
inside for 30 years.
Holdridge is an ardent opponent
of compulsory military training,
believing there is not one valid ar
gument in favor of the program.
He is expected to incorporate his
views on this subject in his lecture
Thursday.
The influence of the military on
the social and economical structure
of the United States, totalitarian
techniques of the military, the
caste system as a disruptive na
tional as well as filitary force, and
professional military ineptness are
phases of the new American mili
tarism that Hildridge will discuss.
The general believes in a need
for reorientation of national and
international policies directed to
ward world peace. He is in favor of
outlawing of war and contends a
rew race in armaments is leading
[ to world suicide.
At present Holdridge is co-chair
man of the armed forces commit
tee of the American Veterans com
mittee. The lecture is the first of
the winter term series sponsored
by the Educational activities board.

Canadian to Speak
At Straub Tonight
Mr. John Smart, member of the
faculty at Emmaus Bible school,
Toronto, Canada, will speak at the
Intervarsity Christian fellowship
meeting in the dining room of John
Straub hall at 7 tonight.
Smart, who has been described
as a “man with a message’’ by
those who have heard him, is visit
ing on the Pacific Coast on leave
of absence.
He is an internationally-known
conference speaker, having spoken
at the World Missionary conference
at the University of Toronto in

would receive $2.00 per hour if the
proposed wage hike is granted.
“If work is held up long, the
units will not be ready for spring
term as promised," was the state
ment of I. I. Wright, superintend
ent of the physical plant.
Wright said that the University
is willing to pay whateer is agreed
upon, retroactive to the date of the
demand, but that the University
cannot set the pattern for acceding
to the increase, which is being
fought by the contractors’ associa
tion.
A. R. Major, business represen
tative for some 1000 carpenters a
the Eugene area, would give no
comment Monday in regard to the
walkout. His formal statement con
cerning the wage raise was given
Saturday without further com
ment: “Beginning Monday morn
ing, January 19, 1948, the wage
scale of Carpenters’ Local 1273,
United Brotherhood of Carpenter s
and Joiners of America (AFL) will
increase 25 cents per hour in all
brackets."
E. W. Martin, director of vet
erans’ family housing, said that
between 450 and 500 persons are
on the waiting list for housing, and
that a continued strike would han
dicap the program greatly.
Building Annex
Up for Approval
Plans for building additions to.
the music building will be taken
before the state board of higher •
education when it next meets Jan
uary 27, I. I. Wright, superinten
dent of the physical plant, an
nounced yesterday. Preliminary
plans for the new women's dormi
tory and additions to the library
have been completed also he said.
Included in the building additions
for the music building are studios,
a dean’s office, and class rooms.
Improvements in the library will,
be contained in an addition on the
south end of the building. It will
house more stacks, the audio-vis
ual department, and a study room
consisting of individual cubicles.
The additions to both the music
school and the library will be fi
nanced by funds granted from the
state board.
A less elaborate women's domi
tory than had been previously
planned will be built due to high,
costs, he added. The building will
be minus some of the trimmings
previously planned and will accom
modate 333 girls instead of the
original 234. Working plans will be
drawn up along the lines of the
practical model which was on dis
play in the Mary Spiller living
room last term, Wright said.
