The United States cannot hope
to win the present world conflict
on military might alone according
to George H. Knoles, professor of
history at Stanford university. The
IT. 8. must learn that ideas, too,:
are weapons, he said.
Knoles, who has worked in Ja
pan the past two summers as part
of Stanford’s educational project -
there, said that the U. 8. can no
longer live smugly behind their
ocean frontiers. The United States
has a great opportunity in Japan 1
now if they don't turn their back,
He added that Japan needs the
IT. S.'s continued support econom
ically and politically but they need
American help more in the cultural
and intellectual aspects.
The two most important events
in Japan's history, Knoles said,
that have led to her present status
are the Meiji restoration and the
processes of western ways that
followed, and Japan's defeat in.the
Pacific war and the occupation
The success of Japan’s occupa
tion was attributed by Kr.oles to
General MacArthur and his carry
ing out of three premises which
[the Allied occupation was based
These were: the conviction of
MacArthur that Japan was the
only nation that could provide ef
fective leadership for east Asia:
converting Japan into a bulwark
of democracy in the far east: aid
ing Japan during the occupation
to reconstruct its way of life to
provide for the democratic essen

Professors, Republican Official
Provide Opinions on Elections
By Charlene Christiansen
. Taft’s victories in Nebraska and
Wisconsin were not as decisive as
Eisenhower’s victories in New
Hampshire and Minnesota. This is
the consensus of opinions express
ed by a local Republican party
chairman and several University
of Oregon professors.
Eugene and Lane County Re
publican Central Committee Chair
man E. Cl. Boehnke felt that Eis
enhower was still ahead. He stated
that while Taft has the most
pledged delegates, Eisenhower has
the most public votes.
Boehnke feels, however, that
Taft has been campaigning stead
ily and cannot be written off light
ly. He said the Taft family has
been well known in this country
for the past 50 years and the Ohio
senator is a formidable candidate.
Mentions Large States
Boehnke stressed that while con
sidering these spot campaigns it
should be remembered they do not
reflect the great industrial states
of New York, Pennsylvania, Illi
nois and California. He said New
York itself has more votes than
all four of the states which have
had primaries so far. “It is a long
way to July 7," he said, "and there
is still much water to go under the
Here on campus W. Schumacher,
professor of political science, defi
nitely felt the general’s New
Hampshire victory was greater
than Taft’s in Nebraska because in
New Hampshire every vote that
was recognizable was counted. He
pointed out that Taft was much
easier to spell than Eisenhower. "I
would like to know how many Eis
enhower votes were thrown out
for incorrect spelling,” he said.
Schumacher also felt that the
primaries proved a big defeat for
Stassen and he might as well take
himself out of the picture.
(.. P. Schleicher, professor of po
litical science, said Taft's victory
in Nebraska shows there is still
considerable isolationist sentiment
in the midwest, more so than on
the eastern seaboard. He felt the
New Jersey primary coming up
would be more clear-cut.
Schleicher expressed the opinion
that the Democrats should be de
♦ ♦ O
lighted with the results of the pri
maries because of all the Republi
can candidates, Taft will be the
easiest to beat.
Not a Taft Win
He also believed you can't count
Wisconsin as a Taft victory be
cause write-in votes were not
counted and Eisenhower was not!
on the ballot.
E. S. Pomeroy, associate profes
sor of history, does not give Taft
too much chance but definitely
does not think Taft will count him
self out. He sees a prolonged fight
between Eisenhower, Warren and

Taft Backers Claim Taft Wins
Have Stemmed Ike's Advance
From Combined Wire Services
Taft backers Wednesday claim
ed that the Ohio senator's victories
in Wisconsin and Nebraska had
stemmed the Eisenhower tide.
Taft captured 24 of Wisconsin's
30 Republican delegates and went
on to score a write-in victory over
Gen. Dwight Eisenhower in the
The six remaining GOP dele
gates in Wisconsin went to Gov

Former Governor Harold Stassen
of Minnesota, who had promised
half his delegates to Eisenhower,
wound up with none.
Eisenhower was not entered in
the Wisconsin race which docs not,

In Nebraska Taft's lead over
Eisenhower moved toward 10.000.
With three fourths of the vote'
counted, Taft had 54,475 and Eis- i

of the vote counted, Stassen fol- j

Increase in Flow
Of Millrace Water
Promised by King
By Jim Haycox
Kugene City Manager Oren C. King promised Wednesday to
take immediate action to increase the flow

AnIIrace, tollowmg a conference with W. C. Jones acting presi
'.ent of the University, Roger Nudd, ASUO millrace committee
< hairinan and the 1 niversity planning commission.
.. ing said it w'ould take about 30 day to obtain the maximum
m possible and that the work would be completed in time
for junior Weekend.
Moro water will be allowed to :!< w throordi the -Y,\ « -.1
outlet gates axid the overflow gate
at the west end of the proposed
park area will be opened. The in
crease in flow will come mainly in
the park area, he explained, and to
a less degree by the living organi
zations on 21th street, the lower
part of the race.
The conferees decided that the
$20,000 bond issue passed by Eu
gene voters but never sold would
have to be used in improving the
race along its entire length rather
than in that part alone which goes
through University property.
AS 170 Will Act
Nudd said the ASUO would im
mediately make a formal request
of the Eugene City council to con
sider selling the bond issue. After
this is accomplished, he said. King
will meet with the planning com
mission to formulate plans for
cleaning and improving the race.
King will make a progress re- j
port to the Planning commission j
May l, he said.
Two months ago King discussed
the Millrace with the ASUO sen
ate and told them at that time the
city would begin experimentation
within the next few days. At that
lime he agreed with several sen
ators that “we may be able to im
prove (the lower race) . . . but
we will never be able to make the
Millrace flow like it once did."
Wednesday, W. J. Mullins, head
of the city's maintenance depart
ment, told the Emerald that men
in his department were "up there
every day” working with the race.
He agreed with Kings previous
statement that the flow by the
houses on nth could not be in
creased too much.
“I don't think the pipe (the out
let running under Franklin boule
vard) is large enough to put much
more through it," he explained. If
the spillway were lowered too
much, he said, it would flood out
the people along the Tower part of
The formal request Nudd said
would be presented to the city
council may incorporate part of a i
four-point resolution passed in sen- j
ate Feb. 27 including these pro- (
1. That the city manager be re-|
quested to increase the flow of the i
Millrace to maximum level to clear j
pollution from the water and de- j
termine whether the race, at maxi-!
mum level, is usable.
2. That the Eugene Water and
Electric board be requested to re
move power poles from University
property in the Millrace park area
so rough grading can be completed
3. That the Eugene city council
be requested to devote some part
of the $20,000 unsold MUlraco bond
issue to clean out debris impeding
the flow of the race.
4. That the city council be in
formed the ASUO is willing to con
tribute "funds now on hand," when
accompanied by the balance of the
unsold bonds, for the completion of
