Van Meter Talks
William Van Meter, deputy com
missioner of the Oregon bureau of
labor, spoke to the campus chap
ter of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People Tuesday night, explaining
the provisions of the Fair Em
ployment Practices act in Oregon.
He felt that the law as it stands
now in Oregon is quite good and
that no changes should be made.
He went on to explain the protec
tion that is provided under the
In an open discussion period that
followed, he answered questions
about the FEPC act and told how
the commission had acted with
“beligercnt” employeers who were
disobeying the act.
Later in the discussion period a
member of the audience pointed
out that most fraternities and
sororities discriminate against
Negroes and Orientals in the selec
tion of membership and that all
such students must live off
campus or in the dormitories. Van
Meter then stressed the import
ance of an educational program
for all prejudiced persons.
Election Contest
(Continued from f'apc one)
filed the day of the elections (April
30) and according to the two, be
fore they knew the election results,
is as follows:
“We feel that today’s elections
were held contrary to provisions
of (the) Consitution. Therefore, it
is our duty in the interest of good
government to contest these elec
tions regardless of the outcome.
This is not to contest the fitness
of any candidate, but the organic
law should be followed.”
The point of contesting the elec
tion is to indicate the “fallacies" of
constitution in regard to the elec
tion procedure, the two said. They
cited the constitution provisions
for the time polling booths should
be open, which were said to be vio
lated from two minutes to around
one half hour.
. to the Letter . .
They called for new elections on
the basis that the last ones were
not held according to the constitu
tion which they said in their peti
tion “must be followed to the let
ter by all concerned.”
Francis Linklater and Fred
Risser, fifth-year law students,
have taken over the job of pre
senting the case of the petitioners
to the constitution committee, they

Ethics of Writing
(Continued from pncie one)
work available to Hollywood.
When asked if one could then
conclude that a writer could not
be held ethically responsible for
anything he writes, he replied:
“It is not important for any
w’riter to exist ... He is faced
with a problem of communication
. . . he is not a writer until his writ
ing is read ... it is no sin to make
money or to have readers.”
“Is the object of a writer to have
readers, then ?” it was asked.
DeVoto answered that the num
ber of readers is irrelevant, that
the audience was making too much
of such concepts as “responsibil
ity,” that they are meaningless.
‘Writers have far less social util
ity than plumbers,” he added.
Loss Would Be ‘Negligible’
The author of “The Easy Chair”
(in Harper’s magazine) stated that
if all the writers of today were
wiped off the earth, the net effect
on culture and society would be
In reply to a question concerning
the compatibility of integrity and
making a living in professional
writers, DeVoto implied, that those
two qualities are embodied in all
professional writers of today—
writers wrho are concerned with do
ing a workmanlike job.
Democrats ‘Sunk’
In his press conference Tuesday
morning DeVoto said that now that
Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois
will not be a Democratic candidate

“Anybody could beat Taft (Sen.

“and Stevenson could beat Eisen
