Life Is Challenge, Say Villard,
Famous Editor; Human Better
ment Should be Aim.
University of Oregon, Eugene,
June 22. "Life today is a direct
and menacing challenge to all of
us, but particularly to you. We
elders, who are soon to cross the
Great Divide, salute you, but with
out self-satisfaction, without self
praise, without pride in our achieve
ments, save in the fields of the
scientist, the inventor and the
practitioner of the healing arts.
Shamefacedly we admit that if we
have advanced the world., material
istically, we have bettered it not at
all in certain other directions."
With these grim words, Oswald
Garrison Villard, nationally famous
liberal editor, and son of Henry
Villard, early benefactor of the uni
versity, opened his address to the
68th graduating class 01 obi mem
bers, at the commencement exer
cises here June 17.
Mr. Villard, however, made it
plain that his words were not meant
to discourage, but to challenge the
youth of today. "If it is a grave
challenge that confronts you, so
much the better," he declared. "If
the fight is a tremendous one and
the odds great, why 'the fight's the
thing', provided, of course, it is a
fight not for selfish aims but for
"To you is given the task of solv
ing problems of government and
human relations which we have
failed to work out What an ap
peal, what an opportunity, what a
Issuing a ringing challenge to
youth to stand by the Republic,
Mr. Villard, in accordance with his
topic, "Youth and the Republic,"
first sounded a warning against
such doctrines as fascism, commu
nism, and other forma of govern
ment that have for an objective the
submerging of the individual and
individual rights, and thoroughly
scored leaders of such movements,
both abroad and in this country.
Staunchly defending the govern
ment of this country, Mr. Villard
said: "It is not the system which
is at fault, nor the theories of self'
government which lie behind it It
is the engineers at the throttles ol
the mighty engine, the conductors
of the great train of state, who
are guilty of the shortcomings evi
dent. The weaknesses are not be
yond remedy, the faults not be
Paying a tribute to W. S. U'Ren,
father of the initiative and refer
endum in Oregon, Mr. Villard said:
"Here is the state of Mr. U'Ren,
who single-handed gave a superb
new impulse to democratic forms, I
bespeak again more democracy
through a nation-wide initiative
and referendum, as to war, as to
foreign policy, as to whether we
shall enter the League of Nations,
as a nation whether we shall or
shall not arm to the teeth, as to
whether the federal government
shall or shall not exercise those
functions which the supreme court
has just decided it may not a ref
erendum which at any time a cer
tain number of citizens may in
voke! Answering the question, "How to
begin?" Mr. Villard said: "Here
and now highly resolve that you
will go forth to make the concerns
cf this government your own by
day and by night, year in and year
out Read of them, think of them,
speak of them. Hold them your
first duty in life. Let them even
take precedence of the earning of
your daily bread, for if your free
dom goes, your content and your
happiness will go as well. Your
. very economic existence will be
taken out of your hands."
Mr. Villard became a fellow al
umnus of the university, when at
the conclusion of his address, he
was invested with the hood which
denoted the conferring of the high
degree of doctor of laws upon him.
At the same time, the doctor of
laws degree was conferred upon
Dr. Norman Franklin Coleman, for
mer president of Reed College,
A total of 561 degrees were con
ferred upon students by Dr. Boyer.
Three of these were doctor of phil
osophy, the highest degree than can
be earned. Those receiving this
degree were, Robert S. Dowe, Mc
Minnville; Edna Landros, and Eli
zabeth Montgomery, Eugene. The
degree of doctor of medicine was
granted to 54 students who have
completed work at the university
medical school, while 37 were
awarded the master of arts degree,
11 master of science, three master
of education, and one master of
business administration. The larg
est group, 212, received the degree
of bachelor of arts, while 198 were
given bachelor of science degrees.
Jack and David Hynd of Hynd
Bros, company were doing business
in the city Tuesday. Their sheep
flocks are now on summer range

"WE WELCOME ALL"
Many Fruits Juices May
Be Bottled for Future Use
Various fruit juices, which may
be used to replenish the jelly sup
ply or to make refreshing and
healthful drinks, are easily and
quickly bottled during the berry
season, says Miss Lucy A. Case, nu
trition specialist at Oregon State
One of the most important points
to be remembered in canning or
bottling fruit juices is that at no
time during the process should eith
er the fruit or the juice be allowed
to boil, says Miss Case, as this
spoils the flavor of the juice. De
tailed directions, prepared by the
bureau of home economics of the
U. S. department of agriculture, are
First wash the berries or other
fruit. Then mash a small portion
of the fruit in a kettle and stir
while heating it quickly just to the
boiling point, but not allowing it to
boil. Remove at once and strain the
juice thru a heavy jelly bag. The
juice that runs from the bag with
out pressure is generally clearer
than that obtained by pressure, and

may be bottled separately if de
Less juicy fruits may require a
little longer cooking at the simmer
lng point and a small amount of
water, about one-fourth cup to a
pound of fruit, i3 sometimes needed.
Sugar may be added to the
strained juice if desired about one
cup to a gallon of juice. It helps to
retain the color and improves the
flavor of the juice, but is not neces
sary for preservation. If used, it
should be dissolved by stirring just
before the juice is reheated.
The strained juice is reheated to
the simmering point 185 degrees
or 85 degrees C. and poured In
hot, sterilized bottles, filling to
within one inch of the top if crown
caps are to be used, or two inches
corks are to be used. The bot
tles are sealed, either by capping
or by corking tightly, before pro
cessing. Corks may be made safe
by pushing in tightly and then
placing a double square of cheese
cloth over the cork and tying it
down with a string around the
neck of the bottle below the collar.
The sealed bottles are placed on
rack in a large container of warm
water on the stove, and brought to
the simmering point and kept there
for 10 minutes, but not allowed to
boil. The bottles are best laid on
their sides, with the water at least
two inches over the top layer. The
bottles are then removed and al
lowed to coot. Where corks are
used it i best to dip the cork and
top of the bottle in semi-liquid
paraffin or sealing wax. Label and
store in a cool, dark, dry place.
Effect of Frazier-Lemke
Decision Is Pointed Out
Important developments affect
ing farm-debt adjustment and re
financing activities include the
Farm Credit Act of 1935 recently
enacted by Congress and the decis
ion of the Supreme Court declar
ing unconstitutional the Frazier
Lemke amendment to the national
bankruptcy act, members of Oregon
state and county farm-debt adjust
ment committees point out
Committeemen who are close ob
servers of the trend of foreclosure
proceedings feel that both of these
developments may cause greater
use to be made of voluntary debt
adjustment agreements between
farm debtors and their creditors to
avoid unjustified foreclosures
against farmers who are doing their
best under existing conditions.
In respect to the Farm Credit
Act of 1935 it is pointed out that
with lower interest rates on Land
Bank loans, and an extension of
time and more liberal regulations
for making "Commissioner" loans,
more farmers will probably wish to
refinance their farms.
Although the number of cases
filed under the Frazier-Lemke
was not large, and the services of
the county conciliation commis
sioners are still available for as
sisting farm debtors, it is the opin-
on of officials of the state debt-ad
justment committee that the Fra
zier-Lemke decision will result in
more activity for the various coun
ty debt-adustment committees.
The state committee appointed by
the governor is composed of 21 rep
resentatives of large agricultural
organizations, with O. M. Plummer,
Portland, as chairman, and L. R.
Breithaupt, Corvallis, secretary.
The governor also appointed a com
mittee in each county to assist all
farm debtors and creditors who
need help in adjusting indebted
ness on a voluntary basis.
Crop Prospects Improved
Mid June Report Says
With crop prospects greatly Im
proved during the past few weeks,
the end of the great drouth and
feed shortage appears to be at hand
says the mid-June review of agri
cultural conditions prepared by the
College extension service. The
principal exceptions listed are the
corn crop which is late and some
counties in Colorado, Kansas, Ne
braska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and
Texas where rains came pretty late
in the season.
With greatly improved pasture
conditions, milk production has in
"It is not improbable that by fall
milk production per cow will ex
ceed the average of the past five
years," says the report, "although
total output will be held down
somewhat owing to a decrease of
5 per cent in the number of cows
compared with a year ago."
Earlier in the year, milk produc
tion per cow was at record low lev
els owing to the shortage of and
high prices for feed.
The report goes into detail with
respect to various commodities of
particular importance in Oregon
and reviews the farm price, cost
and demand situation. The gen
eral farm price level of Oregon
products at mid-May stood at 68
percent of the 1926-1930 average, 2
points lower than a month previous
and 28 points below "parity," but
12 points higher than May 1934 and
26 points above March 1933. Mar
ket prices at mid-June indicated
some further decline in the general
farm price level.
In percentage of the 1926-1930 av
erage, the farm price of eggs at
mid-May was 69, butterfat 63, milk
cows 64, hogs 77, lambs 60, wool 51,
beef cattle 80, veal calves 65, wheat
69, oats 79, barley 86, hay 73, po
tatoes 70, hops 62, and dried prunes
Owing to weather conditions in
May, chick hatchings on farms was
not as large as expected, according
to the report, and slightly fewer
young chickens were on hand than
a year previous Instead of more as
on May 1 this year.
