SU Service
Good, But
Can Improve
By Larry Hobart
What do you think of the ser
vice at the Student Union soda
It's good, but it can be improv
ed, was the answer given by stu
dents polled today.
The students expressed the be
lief that the apparent inexperience
of the Student Union help and un
familiarity with facilities account
ed for much of the present ineffi
ciency. It was also indicated that
more cooperation on the part of
students waiting to be served
would speed up the service.
Doei Tripony—junior in business
administration—“At first the ser
vice was horrible. However, the
service is much better now. The
price of coffe might as well be
10 cents. The time wasted obtain
ing the change is worth three
cents. If customers returned their
cups to some central location when
they were through, it would save
the time of the waitresses.”
Sue Hood—freshman in liberal
arts—“I think the service is too
slow on orders of food. They should
have more help, especially during
the rush hours.”
Bill Hunt—sophomore in liberal
arts—“The service is too slow. Peo
ple who have their orders stand
around the soda bar and block
the way for others.”
Amos Cardwell—freshman ..in
business administration—“It’s get
ting better. As time goes on the
additional experience will help the
Adrian Hale—senior in business
administration—“It's a lot slower
than it should be. If the coffee
pots were closer to the counter,
a great deal of time coidd be sav
ed. Also time is wasted by the
help when getting change. An or
ganized line of those wanting cof
fee would speed up service.”
Virginia Dobbins—sophomore in
liberal arts—"If tbe service im
proves as it has been, soon it will
be terrific!”
Dick Chapman—sophomore in
business administration—“I don t
think that the service is as fast as
it should be—or could be. With
the facilities in the SU, the ser
vice should be better.”
Joy Southward —freshman in
liberal arts “They should have
more waitresses. When the pre
sent help gains experience, the
service should improve.”
Valerie Weinmann—sophomore
in pre-nursing—“I think that the
service has improved, but that
ttiere is still room for more im
Jack Bissenger senior in ar
chitecture—“I think that service
a l the SU soda bar would be great
ly improved if a station exclusive
ly serving coffee were set up,
complete with coffee cups. Poor
circulation and inefficient use of
space now prevails.”

Korea War Avoidable, ECA Man '
Tells Young Republican Convention
“The war in Korea could have
been averted,” stated Stanley Earl,
former member of the Economic
Cooperation Administration i n
Korea, speaking Sunday in the
Student Union at the state con
vention of the Oregon College Lea
gue of Young Republicans.
Earl, whose topic was “Asiatic
Lesson Number One: Korea,” add
ed that the current difficulties
there are a good object lesson in
what the U. S. foreign policy and
its mistakes can lead to.
Senator Wayne Morse made a
surprise visit to the banquet and
spoke briefly on his recent trip
to Alaska. He feels that the mili
tary in Alaska is doing a fine job,
but that they need more help as
soon as possible.
Favors Pact
He also stated that the Atlan
tic pact could eventually promote
a well-defended Europe and warn
ed of the consequences of letting
Europe and the free parts of Asia
fall to the Russians.
Both Morse and Earl were in
troduced by Clay Myers, state
chairman of the College League
of Young Republicans. State and
local Republicans and Young Re
publicans also were present at
the meeting.
Earl charged that the govern
ment of Syngman Rhee in South
Korea, which the U. S. supports,
was a police state. It was not
democratic, he said; popular elec
tions were postponed by Rhee six
times, and held eventually only
at the insistance of the United
States. In those elections, Rhee’s
government was roundly defeated,
winning only 22 seats in the na
tional' legislature.
Charges Police State
Rhee’s government employed
police state tactics in running the
country, Earl declared. Labor
unions were controlled by the
government. Earl said he tried to
remedy the situation in his capa
city as ECA representative, but
had to give up only a few months
before South Korea was invaded
because two of his Korean assist
ants were killed after a “scienti
fic investigation” by the Korean
“Our statements that Korea
was outside our defense perimiter,
and that we would not intervene
there, caused a big drop in the
moral of the South Korean peo
ple,” he continued. This statement,
he feels, led the Russians to en
courage the North Koreans into
a war against South Korea.
Sends Letter
Less than 12 hours before the
North Korean Army rushed across
the 38th parallel, Earl mailed a
letter to Oregon’s Senator Wayne
Morse, telling him that he (Earl)
was going to Washington to tell
his superiors about the events in
Korea. He also added that he felt
that an attack from the North
was imminent.
Earl also said that Rhee con
sistently refused to enact land re
forms, although the South Korean
legislature had passed such a hill
almost a year ago. His police were
the same ones who had served in
the constabulary during the Jap
anese occupation, and were hated
by the people.
“I heard of two South Korean
boys who joined the South Korean
Army so that they could get a
rifle in order to kill some of these
policemen,” Earl added.
“If we continue to support Rhee
and his government,” he warned,
“we shall have a tough job con
vincing the people of the Orient
that American democracy is more
than mere words.”
