For the first time since we can
remember Oregon students get a
chance to see a far-eastern basket
ball team show its wares in Mac
court. For many years sports fans
in the Northwest have read and
heard about the LIU five and how
potent they have been. So now we
get a chance to see them in action.
If we walk across a street when
the light is red it is just because
rwe are kinda blinded by colors. The
gals are really showing us some
beautiful hrgyles. So far we have
seen the socks at the ADiPi, Alpha
Xi and Kappa houses, and they
show real class.
A typographical error in Tues
day’s column said the "Chester

but not with a fifth. If your house
has any aspirants let us know.
We’d prefer looking at all the
sock in house at once, saves us
back-tracking across the campus
many a time.

out protest by the conservative
majority of this country.
Protecting the prerogatives of
Emperor Hirohito and of the feu
dal nobility provides the best
means of democratizing Japan.
Removing two editors of “Pacific
Stars and Stripes” from their po
sitions three years ago in Tokyo
for challenging the old Japanese
military regime and refusing to
incite war hysteria against the
Soviet Union shows diplomatic
and journalistic acumen.
All these tales, and other demo
cratic marvels too, such as the
undistorted American monopoly
press, the reader finds or deduces
from Kane’s enlightening contri
bution to Oregon political
But restoration of Japanese
military power is only the first
step consistent with Kane’s po
litical philosophy. Let’s go a step
Biology and anthropology have
scientifically demolished all
claims of racial superiority or ac
cusations of inferiority. Now
imagine Kane, who we presume
has had the courage to take a
science course or two and has
buried within himself somewhere
the facts of race, in a southern
town. A murder occurs.
The conservative majority de
clares “niggers” are naturally
mean and murderers. By his own
political tenets, Kane must agree
Then the conservative majority
dmands lynch “justice.” We can
visualize Kane nodding his ap
“You Southern Democrats are
a conservative majority,” he
shouts. “Get that black dogma
bound boy strung up from a limb,
Next we may feel sure that
Kane is only a column or two
from denouncing the American
revolution. You see, historians as
sure us that only a one-third mi
nority of colonists held and
fought for the dogma of indepen
dence. Such a situation is irrec
oncilable with Kane’s deference to
the conservative majority.
If Kane would but put his acute
powers of observation and politi
cal analysis to full use, he could
see how the religious and political
purity of Oregon students are
menaced by far more than a so
cialist professor or two.
In fact, Kane has flopped as a
self-appointed un-American ac
tivities committee of one.
Why'has he failed to launch a
valiant attack against Catholic,
Republican, and vegetarian fac
ulty members ? After all, those
belonging to such groups are to
day in a minority in America.
Only minorities adhere to dogma,
according to Kane’s reasoning,
and only majorities are dogma
Catholic, Republican, and vege
tarian instructors have no right
to hide their bad dogmas (all dog
mas are bad—Kane), and surrep
titiously teach them, behind the
cloak of academic freedom. Go
these instructors must from the
green sward of Oregon.
And Kane is the man to make
them go. Besides, think of the no
toriety and job prospects attached
to redeeming his name as num
ber one watchdog.
The thing Kane must do to ar
range for the exit of these minor
ities, now that he has been made
aware of them, is to raise the ire
of the Protestant, Democratic,
and meat-eating conservative
majority, if not here then out of
Once the majority are aroused
to their democratic duty, the mi
nority can be made to feel so
small that “they don't dare to
show their colors because of the
conservative majority’s probable
retaliation,” as Kane so neatly
phrases it. The silence of the in
timidated is, in effect, indistin
guishable from their expulsion.
Now, this act of Kane's farce
appears to have been lifted from
Hitler’s “Mein Kampf," a respec
table historical document these
days, to be sure.
For your information, Mr.
Kane, and any of the conserva
tive majority who may applaud
your philosophizings, I am a
member of the Progressive par
ty. I am proud to sail under those
colors. And, if the columns of the
Emerald and the forums on cam
pus were fully available to me
to declare myself, you would be
the first to decry me as a sub
versive driven into the open.
So I take this opportunity to
announce to you, Mr. Kane, and
the conservative majority of
which you pretend to be the
spokesman, I am a Progressive
and await your retaliation with
much more interest than alarm.
