Mrs. Robeson herself has great personality
and poise, and impressed me with the rapport
she established with the group. Though you
might disagree with her, I think anyone
would have to give credit for the sincerity of
her belief.
Incidently, she is for the Constitution,

University of California Faculty Refuses
To Sign Loyalty Oath Against Communism
“respected and loyal” University
of California faculty members will
quit rather than sign a loyalty oath
demanded by the school’s regents,
a committee of eight professors
said today.
The committee, which said it
represented the faculty, branded
the oath as a “totalitarian tech
nique” that both violated the acad
emic tradition of free inquiry and
threatened a severe deterioration of
the school.
All members of the group em
phasized their opposition to Com
munism but said such a special
oath, not required of other state
employees or elected officials, was
“repugnant to American ideals
and values.”
A move to withdraw the oath
failed to pass Friday when the re
gents voted 10 to 10 on the ques
tion. The Committee said it hoped
to influence the board to recon
“Respected and loyal faculty
members are making known their
intention to leave,” Chairman
Paul Dodd of the committee said,
“and the filling of vacant positions
is bogging down because first-class
scholars are expressing their dis
inclination to come here under the
special oath.”
Unless faculty members sign
the loyalty affidavit by Apr. 30,
they will be fired.

favorite gathering spot of students
at Pennsylvania State College is
Graham & Sons because it is a
cheerful place — full of friendly
collegiate atmosphere. And when

as in college haunts everywhere—
Coke belongs.

Art Museum Boasts
Two Rulers' Thrones
It would be a distinction for any
museum to have a thorne of one
of the world’s greatest rulers.
Oregon’s Museum of Oriental
Art not only has this distinction
but more—it has two thrones of
Ch'ien Lung, one of China's great
est emperors.
China Expanded
Ch’ien resigned during the great
Manchu dynasty from 1736 to 1796.
In this year, China enjoyed some
of the most prosperous times that
she has seen in centuries. Her
boundaries expanded and so did
her population.
Missionaries to China during the
18th and 19th centuries describe
Ch’ien’s empire as one of the great
est China has ever known.
The reasons for the two thrones
is that they are but a few of those
found in the Peking Summer Pal
ace, where the emperor had a
throne in every room “to making
ruling more comfortable.”
Part of Collection
The two thrones in the local
museum were brought to this coun
try by the late Murray Warner,
husband of Gertrude Bass War
ner. The thrones were only a part
of the collection ,of oriental art
that Mrs. Warner donated to the
campus museum.
Besides being- an able ruler.
Ch'ien had a special devotion for
his sumptous thrones and concu
bines. Of the former, the museum’s
two can attest for beauty and de
sign. For the later, that is history.
He was also a poet, historian, and
One of his greatest acts, one
which affected the entire world,
was his rejection of an English
petition for the establishment of
a trading post in Peking. This act
was of importance in that it closed
China to foreigners for approxi
mately two centuries.
Aid Given In Greece
Purchasing books is almost out
of the question in Greece; three
or four books required for study
ing law or medicine cost twice the
average student's monthly income.
WSSF assists these students with
up-to-date books.
Last year 763 campuses in the
United States participated in
in the market for Beach Clothes,
Swimming Suits or Corn Planters
