The contest judged chapter ac
tivities during the 1948-49 school
year. Among the points considered
in the judging were the quality of
professional programs, attendance

done by the chapter’s undergradu

from 52 undergraduate chapters.

Red Imperialism
Good: Phillips
~By Walter Dodd
“I rejoice in the spread of Red
imperialism,” Dr. Herbert J. Phil
lips told an audience of some 75
people meeting in Hampton Hall
last night in downtown Eugene.
Dr. Phillips, ousted communist
professor of philosophy at the
University of Washington, spoke
under auspices of the Young Pro
gressives of Eugene and the Civil
Rights Congress.
The Civil Rights Congress is
listed by the Department of Jus
tice as a subversive communist
front organization.
Phillips told the audience that
he does not propose to defend aca
demic tenure of those who are
members of groups which mentally
enslave their members.
“Communists,” Phillips contends,
“have come to a certain theory of
historical development and follow
truth where it leads.”
Phillips, who testified in the
recent Communist party trials in
New York City, holds that the
Communist party is committed to
popular ism, to the party of the
working class, for the realization
cf the will of the people.
Under questioning Phillips ad
mitted that the “new Democracies

/DC in Favor
Of Living Plan
The Interdormitory Council last
night passed a unanimous resolu
tion favoring the “basic concepts”
of the deferred living plan and ex
pressed belief that deferred rush
ing should be included.
The council also favored the
holding of rush week for second
year students just before fall term.
Victor Fryer, president of the
council, said a letter would be
drafted and copies sent to Univer
sity President Harry K. Newburn
and to the deans in the Office oi
Student Affairs. The letter would
set forth the views held by the
council in favoring deferred rush
ing, Fryer said.
The council listed three reasons
for favoring deferred rushing:
(1) Academic standing of the
freshmen would be improved if
they were not required to observe
the social obligations o f two
(2) Freshmen would not be re
quired to divide their loyalties be
tween two social groups.
(3) The financial obligations of
two social groups would be an
unjustifiable burden.
Council members felt rushing
ought to be held just before fall
term of the students’ second year
because spring term pledging
would cause undue interference
with academic work and social ob

fraternities and sororities continued to fight the deferred liv

signs had been torn down by Monday night.
The predicted chant at the Orcgon-Orcgon State football
game came through as rumored when rooters shouted “Deferred
The mysterious “card stunt No. 6” which was supposed to
chide the plan failed to materialize, however.
Jerry Kinersley, who was in charge of card stunts, said he didn’t
know anything about the arrangements until 9 a.m. Saturday morning
when he saw it on the diagrams.
A student who did not want his name used declared “card stunt No.
6" was to say “No deferred livin.” He added that the Interfraternity
Council knew about the stunt and did not disapprove.
Fred Van Horn, president of the council, declared he had no personal
knowledge of the arrangements.
Although there was much agitation on the part of many of the flash*
card section to put on the stunt, Kinersley said he wanted to stop it.
When card stunt No. 6 started to go off I was at the microphone
and I told them to start passing the cards to the ends of the line because
we’ll want to use them again.”
Also distributed through the campus were leaflets carrying cartoons
implying the University administration was approaching a dictatorship.
They carried the message, “Deferred Living Is Undemocratic.” yellow
leaflets said “Deferred Living, No!”

proaching a controlled state and that the Office of Student Affairs has
taken the element of leadership from the students.
He predicted that some of the smaller fraternities would fold when
the. plan goes into effect. He also asserted that a number of fraternities
had been told that they would have their charters revoked by the Office
of Student Affairs if they sought legal aid in fighting the plan.
University President Harry K. Newburn told the Emerald Monday
afternoon that lifting charters of fraternities that are aided by outside
help was not in line with the University policy.
This is certainly contrary to our policy. We have not revoked any
charters and have no intention of doing so,’’ he said.
He commented that many fraternities arc already receiving outside
help from alumni, yet no charters have been taken.
In discussing the deferred living plan, President Newburn said the
policy was adopted only after careful consideration had been given to
the educational benefits and after authorities had been consulted on the
pros and cons of the policy.
He added that informal conferences are often held with student
groups, although the University administration's policy does not allow
formal student representation in formulating general educational poli
“We have looked upon the matter as a broad educational policy,” he
said. “We have given careful consideration of the advantages and" dis
advantages of the policy with consultation of authorities on the matter.
As yet no new issues have developed that we haven't considered.”
Milligan, chairman of a special committee of the Alumni Interfra
ternity Council, was appointed at the Saturday alumni meeting as chair
man of an alumni committee to study the deferred living plan and sub
mit a report to the alumni association.
Milligan said Monday that he would wait before holding a meeting of
the committee “to see if the University administration will confer with,
Speaking for the Alumni Interfraternity group he added:
‘•Everything possible should be done to prevent the plan from going
into effect.
“We feel that this (the plan) is the first of many steps to take away
the element of leadership that the students are supposed to have.”
