least for the present.

Japanese peace treaty became effective.

Simultaneously, 29 Allied nations of World War II resumed diplo

House Republican leaders . . ,
. .. have decided to postpone until next week taking a stand on moves
to impeach or censure President Truman for seizing the steel industry.
After a meeting of top GOP congressmen. Republican House leader
Joe Martin of Massachusetts said It was decided to wait until next
week because a court, ruling decision on the steel case should be handed
down by that time.
Martin said the Republicans showed considerable sentiment for im
peaching Truman if the courts hold that the seizure was an illegal act.
Martin also said that if the President's action is upheld by the courts,
Republicans will sponsor changes in the law or the constitution.
Federal Judge David Pine has under consideration the steel industry
case to force the government to surrender the seized mills. Pine may
rule Tuesday or Wednesday.
Another resolution to impeach President Truman has been introduced
in the House. The latest impeachment move has been made by Repub
lican Representative Paul Shafer of Michigan who said he acted re
luctantly because he has a genuine friendship and esteem for Truman.
Dignan and Jackson Give Opinions...
(Continued from pane one)
.and that it was a tradition. Dignan
said that he was in favor of send
ing representatives to NSA with
out by-passing PSPA and without
cutting the- ASUO banquet.
What About Senate Vacancies?
The question of filling vacant
‘senate seats was then raised.
"What do you think about party
.caucuses concerning senate busi
ness?' was the question asked in
connection with a caucases held by
AGS senators during the past year
to decide who should fill a vacant
Miss Jackson replied that she
felt that the caucases were poor for
’ student government but there is
"nothing "you can do about it.” "I
feel that senators should forget
'party lines and elect the most
qualified person," she continued.
' Dignan seconded Miss Jackson’s
.statement by saying that he felt
, it wasn't "ideal.” He went on to
say that that is why AGS is push
ing a popular primary vote within
the party, "to make people ac
countable to their constituents and
i Work for good government. In good
.student government I don't feel
that there is room for such meet
iVhen asked if they thought that
.Senate vacancies should be filled
from the same party that origin
ally held the seat, Miss Jackson
answered that only if the person is
"the most qualified for the job." "If
people were really working for the
good of the University of Oregon,
they would forget about party
Dignan answered that as long as
there was two strong parties,
“there must be some sort of an
agreement between them.”
Miss Jackson then offered the
suggestion that an alternate list
be kept, so that when a vacant seat
occurs, it could be filled by the
people who were next under the
preferential voting system. She
stressed the fact that this would
act "only as a guide.”
When asked if he thought the
controversy would be settled if the
two parties had a "gentlemen’s
agreement” to fill the seats from
the same party, Dignan answered
that it was a question of the qual
ifications of the person.
United Fund Drive
The next topic discussed was the
proposed united funds drive for
the University campus uniting all
(four current fund raising drives
into one big drive. When asked
how ho would work the World Stu
dent Service Fund — benefiting
Ugly Man contest into the fund
drive, Dignan said that it might
be possible to unite the Vodvil and
Ugly Man contest in the drive and
give' WSSF a bigger percentage of
the funds or it might be possible to
have a separate drive at the same
In answer to the remark that
some organizations were prohibited
from participating in united fund
drives, Dignan said that they could
participate in "in-plant" drives.
Miss Jackson said that she object
ed to the drive because it “is sacri
ficing individualism for efficiency.”
No one is especially interested in
all, she said.
Dignan said that there would be
a stipulation where-by the student
could ear-mark his donation for a
particular charity if he wished.
When challenged with the state
ment that many students who don't
give now, wouldn’t give under a
united fund drive, Dignan said that
“people always pay their house
bills and if one dollar were added,
the drive would be taken care of.”
He added that a lot of money is
given under social pressure from
the houses and friends.
When asked how they (Jackson
and Dignan) felt about the honor
code, Miss Jackson said that she
felt that the honor code committee
should be continued to do two
things—to publicize the code and
to keep student interest up and
that the committee should set up
a file* of past tests in the library.

Author Sees Democratic Salvation
In Federation of European Nations
The salvation of the democratic

small coffee-hour audience Thurs
“We have to change the econ
omic fabric of the whole world and
bring the mass of products to the
average man to sustain democ

The Communist line, "the propa

appealing to the unemployed mil
lions of Europe and Asia. India
may be communistic in ten years
if the present trend continues, he
Russia Best Hope
Russia is now our best hope for
such a federation, he said, but if
the Reds brought the cold war to
a stop tomorrow, the whole move
ment would collapse.
The federation has strong oppo
sition among economic nationalists
in both Europe and the United
States, he warned, and may never
come about unless the United
States puts on some pressure.
If We Had Guts . . .
“If this country had the guts,”
he said, “there would already be a

the movement for a European fed

are no closer to it than when Na
poleon proposed a single money

I At present, the biggest move in
that direction is the Schumann

as a super-national authority con

The United Nations, he said, can
not promote this federation with,
any more success than the old
