NUMBER ;» Meeting Today Features Speech On Race Problem "Racial Discrimination In Eu gene" wiU be the topic of a talk by the Rev. Neil Culbertaon, a minis ter taking advanced studies at the University, at a meeting at 4 p.rn. today in the Student Union. The meeting has been called to determine whether there Im suffi clent interest on the capipus for reactivation of the student chap ter of the National Association for |hc Advancement of Colored Peo ple. The organization became de funct here laat year.

Interest in the NAACP has been revived among some students re-! cently, according to Ault, by the j testimony on colored housing con- • dltions in Eugene. This was pro- 1 sented by Edwin C. Berry, execu tive secretary of the Urban league : of Portland, before the state fair employment practices committee, and by a reported threat to burn down a Eugene house which was leased to a colored family. Among the stated purposes of the NAACP are: To secure the vote for Negroes everywhere in the Uited States: to abolish injustices in legal procedure, particularly criminal procedure, based solely! on color or race; to secure equit- ' able distribution of funds for edu cation; to abolish segregation, dis crimination, insult and humiliation based on race or color; to equalize the opportunity to work in all ' fields with equal pay for equal work and to abolish discrimination against Negroes in the exercise of labor's right of collective bargain- i Ing through membership in orga- ' nteed labor unions.

Temporary 'Status Quo' Proposed by P T & T Official By Phil Bettens The Pacific Telephone and Tele graph company wants University students to accept the "status quo" the pay telephones now in opera tion here — for possibly seven months while the company investi gates similar situations in other areas of the country. Kred Scholl, PT&T general com mercial manager for Oregon, made this request of Dick Kading, chair man of the ASUO telephone com mittee, while conferring with Kad ing here Tuesday. Accompanying Scholl were R. B. Bacon, PT&T southern Oregon district manager and W. G. Keith, PT&T general commercial engineer for Oregon. Survey Plan Told The proposed survey would take at least 60 or 90 days, Scholl sajd However, the company would defi nitely complete it by the beginning of next fall term. He said that the company want ed to avoid a formal hearing be fore the Public Utilities commis sion — that such hearings were lengthy, time-consuming, expen sive and were sometimes delayed quite a while. Scholl Quizzed He was asked by this reporter: "If the students filed a formal protest, and a hearing was called by the PUC, what do you think would be the result?" "1 think we (the PT&Ti would win," he answered. 'We think the present tariff is sound and equit able." "Would you accept the status quo (the pay telephones» until we make a survey to find out more about other areas?" was .Scholl's request. "Perhaps then well be able to offer another .solution.” He aded, however, that he had no idea of what that solution might be. Delay Not Hiatt Scboll said that this request for a delay was not an attempt to "stall” the students. "We want to investigate thor oughly the administration of this tariff throughout the country." fThe PT&Ts tariff provides for' coin box service in semi-public in stitutions; the PT&T has said that fraternities, sororities, co-ops and dormitories are semi-public insti tutions. ) And Keith said: . "We have nothing to offer now (in the way of an alternative plan I." That's why wc need time to make this study throughout the. ATO Reinstated in A GS With Disciplinary Provision Alpha Tau Omega's petition for reinstatement in the Associated! Greek students, campus political group, was accepted by a 22 to 6 vote at Tuesday's AGS meeting. Under the AGS constitution, ATO will be subject to a one year disciplinary period during which time they will have a vote in the organization, but not be allowed any candidates for ASUO or AGS offices. The fraternity's petition for re instatement was read at the last AGS meeting and the vote taken at this meeting in accordance with the constitution. Left AGS Alpha Tau Omega left the Greek bloc two years ago when their can didate for student body president, Barry Mountain, failed to get the AGS nomination. They joined the United Students association, a coa lition party of Greeks and inde pendents, and Mountain was nom inated by USA and won the stu dent body president election. A proposal to amend the consti tution was read to the group but a motion was passed to table the proposal until the next meeting. The proposed amendment would provide for a two year disciplinary period instead of one-year for houses reinstated in the organiza tion. During this two-year period, they would again have a vote but be allowed no ASUO or AGS can didates. The proposed amendment was presented by Dick Kading, Sigma Phi Epsilon president. Amendment's Provisions In addition the amendment would provide that approval of a petition for reinstatement must be made by a two-thirds vote instead of the present simple majority. Another amendment proposal was also discussed concerning the amount of time to eiapse between the presentation of a petition for reinstatement and the next meet ing in which it is voted upon. It was suggested that a specific time between these meetings be pro vided for in the constitution. Flach Slates Russia and the U S. Must Co-exist or Fight World War Russia and the United States | have no alternative but to co-exist : in the future if they do not want j World War III, Michael J. Flach. visiting lecturer on international ! relations, said Tuesday night. "You can bargain with the Rus sians," he said. "But a deal for continued peace can be made only if the West is very strong.” "Open war has ceased to be a useful technique of policy,” Finch said. "With the destructiveness' of modern weapons . . . war yields no victory, but only degrees of de feat.” He sees the East-West conflict | as a fight between the two seeur- | ity systems of the United States I and Russia. The economic and idc- ! ological clashes lead up to this po- . liticai conflict, he said. "Russia has always been expan sive, and the United States has always been trying- to check her," he said. "Yet for most of the time the West has managed to be at peace with Russia." Flach said that the defensive se curity area of the United States includes not only the whole land mass of the Americas but also ex tends beyond both oceans. The Soviet government, he said, is like ly to consider itself secure only when all the countries bordering the Soviet Union are Communist nations. He feels that Russia will not promote an all out war for Com munism in the forseeable future. Instead they wish to spread Com munism's control by every means short of war. country, to see if we can come ijjv with another solution.” The company's only alternative plan was the intra-campus ex change. which has been set aside by the ASUO senate. Phone Shortage Questioned In view of the national demand for telephone service, Scholl was asked, wouldn’t the intra-campus exchange—which would require about four or five phone# in eacls living organiaztion—deprive ctherir of phone service? No. he answered. The rraiiv shortage in this area is cable -not instruments- and other equipment — and the houses are already amply hooked into the company’s' litres. Anotnfrr question was put to Scfccll: In using pay phones, -aren't University students being force* to pay more per call than other users of phones ? Cost Averaged Out He admitted that this was true, but added that this was probably averaged out through a reduction in the number of calls made by in dividuals. "We anticipated a 35 per cent drop in calls from coin boxos wben the rate went up to a dime ’* Scholl said. He said this semi-fcrced-reduc tion in calls might be construed as depriving students of some phone service. Oregon Xot “Test Case" The PT&T is not trying to make O:egon a "test case." in order to have a precedent for installing pay phones in other schools in its area, Scholl said. The company is only trying: to enforce its tariff regula tions properly, and had no idea of using any sehoo! as a "test area." Scholl said that apparently the students had been misinformed about the so-called Illinois plan. According to information the Em erald obtained, the University of Illinois successfully fought off an attempt by the Illinois Eeli Tele Pteasc turn to page rigliTj Committee Awaits Honor Discussion The honor code ccmmittee's three-man delegation to Stanford, university gave indications to the committee Tuesday of what its "Stanford honor system report” will contain. The group, including llerv Hampton. Jean Gould and John Beal, returned Monday night. They went to Stanford Thursday. Hampton, who led the delega tion, said they talked to students and faculty members and foundk almost unanimous approval of the Palo Alto school's system. One fac tor contributing to its success, ac cording to those talked to, ’was Stanford’s "honor spirit." The report will be made to the committee at its Tuesday meeting, Hampton said. The talk that the "skeleton com mittee" had Thursday with Orlan do Hollis, dean of the law school, was discussed. (The Stanford dele^ gation was r.ot at that meeting.) The problem discussed was wheth er it was better to install an honor system in the whole university at one time or in upper division school? as they desire. The matter will be discussed by a segment of the committee with the discipline committee Friday. The problem of possible conflict with the proposed honor council and the present student court was referred to subcommittee, to be discussed between the latter group and Fred F.isser, student court member.
