Model Charter Is
Available as Guide
Revised editions of "The Model
Charter for Oregon Cities" have
been made available by the Uni
versity bureau of municipal re
search and service.
The short model document,
drawn up in two versions, was
first published in 1947, and was re
vised at the suggestion of many
cities which have used the charter.
One version provides a model for
the mayor-council form of city
government; the other for the
The model charter contains a
general grant of powers, omitting
many provisions which frequently
appear in city charters. These pro
visions are covered by state con
stitution or general laws. Also
omitted are other grants which
were felt could be better covered
by ordinance (authority of admin
istration to work out details).
The charter is intended to guide
those responsible for charter draft
ing rather than to offer a docu
ment to be adopted without

Surveys Show that Most Students
Disapprove Faculty Loyalty Oaths
a recent survey oi es colleges
and universities in the United |
States showed that most student's
were opposed to having professors
sign loyalty oaths stating that they
j are not members of the Communist
j party, the Associated Collegiate
: press, conductor of the poll, stated.
The students interviewed were
asked if "In general, do you ap
prove or disapprove of having col
lege professors take an oath stat
ing that they are not members of
the Communist party?" The re
sults of the survey showed that 39
per cent of the students approved
and that 47 per cent disapproved of
such a move. 12 per cent had n'o
opinion and two per cent had
The ACP also interviewed gradu
ate students and found that 73 per
cent disapproved of a loyalty oath
and only 20 per cent were in favor
of the oath.
One student interviewed thought
the oath was a farce and “that
Communists would sign it any
way." But he added that the Com
munists should be kept off campus
by other means.
A coed in education approved the
loyalty oath because it “would
j protect the students "from harmful
influence and propaganda. Another
coed in education who opposed the
oath feels that college students
should be able to discriminate be
tween education and propaganda.
A junior in liberal arts at a small
midwest school approved of the
oath; a senior in medicine disap
proved of the oath unless “it is a
church affiliated school."
A sophontore in liberal arts an
swered the question with the query,
“Is this a free country or what ?

that the teachers should be free
to teach what they believe.
UO Students Agree
With Results of Poll
Most of the students interviewed
at Oregon by the Emerald dis
approved of faculty members hav
ing to take a loyalty oath.
Most students seemed to feel
that if a professor was a true Com
munist he would sign the loyalty
oath without a question and there
fore the very purpose of the oath
would have been defeated. This
eeling was expressed by Corky
when°n'h freshman in education,
KShe sa,d' “I am opposed to
them because if they were Commu
i', ey WOuId the loyalty
oath for the good of the party.” *
Miss Horton’s opinion was back
ed up by a senior who thought
that requiring the professors to
sign loyalty oaths was “the essence
of stupidity, for what intelligent
Communist, if he were one, would
sign a loyalty oath?”
‘Shouldn’t Be Afraid’
Barbara Coen, freshman in lib
eral arts, thought the oaths should
be required, because if the profes

be afiaid to admit it and it is a
way of showing that he isn’t Com
AJcnior in geography also
thought the oath should be re
quired, because it protects the Uni
versity, but he believed that as far
as the faculty member goes, if he
was a Communist, “the oath
wouldnt mean anything to him.”
P posed to these arguments
were Forest Easton and Ron Rick
etts. Easton, a sophomore in lib
c'al ,a,rtS’ thought the loyalty oath
snouldn t be required because “if
there is a Communist on our fac
ulty, the fact that he signed a
loyalty oath wouldn't stop him
