Self-government, she says in effect, is a fine thing
-.as long as it coincides with what she deems
wise. That the body of co-eds as well as their gov-
erning groups are overwhelmingly in favor of the
change seems to have nothing to do with the
matter. What they want is not what she wants.'
Let their self-government try and get it.
Dean Lloyd reveals in her statement that she
is not aware of some of the more significant oc-
currences of the campus. She shows that the
human significance of one of the most momentous
events of the constitutional history of the United
States has completely escaped her. She shows that
she does not know the plain English of "self-
government." It is impossible to see why the power
should reside with her arbitrarily to deny the clear.
request of both the leaders and the rank and file
of co-eds.

that is good? "College Coach" is another of those
pictures that tries so hard to conceal the same old
plot about the heroes coming through at the last
minute to save the old alma mater. The only thing
new about this one is that the main character
(Pat O'Brien) is the coach, and there is more of
the commercial side of the game shown than the
usual "college life" stuff, which the movies always
do so badly. Dick Powell is in it as one of the
"Four Aces" of Calvert College, and when he
should be singing songs he is trying to look and
act like a football star. They could have done
better with Jackie Cooper or even Baby Peggy. The
one song he does sing is bad, and his fake piano
playing is decidedly impossible.
The only other things that this three hour pro-
gram has room for are the news reel and the an-
nouncement of "Little Women" which is coming
Saturday. This will undoubtedly be worth while
because of Katherine Hepburn, Joan Bennett,
Edna May Oliver, and the story itself. -C.B.C.

W HATEVER else it may or may not
be, Dean Lloyd's statement yester-
regar to women's hours is a striking illus-
of the view that the University should
yr among its functions that of nursemaid
ocial disciplinarian. Her open letter is as
an example as could be asked of the attitude
Jniversity students are children incapable
ing care of themselves and that the school
theref ore see to it that its charges observe
aith rules and study hoUrs'it prescribes.
' view is 'not' universally held. Many persons
"that a University can best fulfill its respon-
by toncentrating its energies and resources
academic program, laboring to make its
s s 'interesting aid thorough as possible
Ldeavoring to stimulate among its students a
Osire to 'study based on teacher-student con-
ud not on auto-ban regulations, women's
rules, residence restrictions, and the like.a
new obviously goes much further than the
t hour dispute, for it envisages a differentt
University 'than the one we have.
Daily is an umqualified exponent of this
view.. During this and past years we have
to the opinion that the University will be
iseful' when it relinquishes its prying inter-]
6 with the personal habits and tastes of its
ts. .
Daily does not stand alone in this belief; itl
red by the sponsors of the excellent state-,
istered educational systems of many foreign
ies, including France, and is expounded and
,ed in this country by such progressive insti-
as the University of Chicago.

should or should not be. There is mucho
however, to be said about the Lloyd state-
For no one will read it without being im-

ONE of the latest in a long line of vicious
cartoons being published by our esteemed
contemporary, The Chicago Tribune, shows good
old Uncle Sam trying to scramble up a mountain
(the Tried And True - look at Washington, Jef-
ferson, and Lincoln, for instance) while a ratty
looking little college professor urges him to step
off the cliff (The Way to Russia).
As the Tribune's anti-Roosevelt campaign pro-
gresses, the cartoons become less thinly veiled;
but unfortunately the blustering demagogic
method of appeal they have adopted remains un-
changed. In order to find weapons, the Tribune
cartoonists have boned up on the outworn slogans
of One Hundred Percent Americanism and stirred
the smoldering ashes of antique and prejudice.
It has long been clear that any people, and
Americans especially, will suffer degradation of
any kind meekly enough until a good big round
slogan comes along. Then they want to fight.
Perhaps Mr. Average Man has been snubbed by
a rich relation, or flouted by a grocery store clerk;
perhaps someone has bumped into him on the
street or trodden on his toe. He hides his anger,
puts it into a seething cauldron of resentment
that is secreted deep in his puny soul. However
suppressed, it bubbles there, awaiting its time.
Along comes the Slogan, and with the baying of
the pack assuring him that he is no longer respon-
sible for his actions, homo americanus rears up
on his hind feet, utters a reverberating "Yippee!",
and rushes out to sink his bared teeth into the
nearest telephone pole. "Kill the Germans (Rus-
sians, Japs, Chinks, Wops, Lithuanians, or Letts
as the case may be), kill 'em," he shrieks.
That the Tribune's editors, in their fear of the
Roosevelt Peril, are trying to tap this boundless
well of hoodlum emotionalism can not be doubted.
The national stupidity is theirs to work on, and
they aren't missing any opportunities. Whether
they are to succeed or not is problematical -it is
to be hoped that the people have learned some-
thing from the collapse of the Good Old Days, but
there remains with us the persistent fear that
they have learned exactly nothing.
What the Tribune seems to be afraid of is Dic-
tatorship and Russia Its more clearly defined
goal seems to be Freedom of the Press. The Trib-
une is saying with a great deal of sound and
fury that it is afraid it can't criticize the Admin-
istration. Suppression of the Tribune would, we
admit, be a great relief; but the President is too
honest, and likewise too clever, to make such a
false move. And the funny thing is that the
Tribune knows it.
What effect the Tribune, bolstered by the large
Tory press, can have is frankly unpredictable. At
worst it can take the most progressive president
the country has ever known out of office, nullify
his work, and make a martyr out of him for the
awe of future generations.
For that is the most ridiculous phase of the
whole comic situation; when Mr. Average Man
has gotten through beating up on the Johnny
Rebs, Spaniards, Reds, Niggers, Finns, Danes,
Slavs, or Siamese -he gets a stroke of conscience,
and wants to make friends. By the workings of
this curious process, the greatest public hero be-
comes the most hated tyrant, and eventually, after
a tin halo has been stuck on his brow, the most
beloved martyr.
So come on, Mr. Taxpayer, Mr. Representative
Citizen, Mr. Everyman, from the shores of Maine
to the sunkist slopes of California, let's get to-
gether! The Germans are killing Baby and pop-
ping out Grandmother's eyes, the Rebels are spit-
ting on the Union Flag, the Yellow Peril is just
around the corner, and the Pope of Rome is ready
to take possession. Down with the Administration,
martyrs of tomorrow.
"But I don't think I'm mad, said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cheshire Cat, "or
you wouldn't be here."

Musical Events
There's music in the air. In every organization
in civilized society there are great preparations for
the Christmas season, with special music attached.
Campus society welcomed the advent of the initial
concert of the University Women's Glee Club last
night, and the special music attached to it, as
The time for the launching of the new Glee Club
was especially fortunate, for tuhe program was en-
hanced decidedly by the inclusion of the Christ-
mas numbers. Before I make a more detailed ac-
count of the program, I should like to comment
l on the function of the organization as it appears
this year. It still has the aspects of an extra-
curricular activity, which is perfectly tenable, a
traditional part of collegiate life. But, this group
is avoiding the dull and uninteresting in music,
songs for women's voices sort of thing, and is
tackling delightful works, Mazart, Handel,
Brahms, whose songs have delicacy and light-
ness, suitable for the bassless quality that neces-
sarily typifies a women's chorus. The group is ap-
parently responding to the new deal; it has worked
hard for the past weeks and has acquired the
spirit, if not a total perfection of technique, of the
music selected.
The success of the initial concert, which was
invitational, was due to the enthusiasm of its
student-conductor and its president, Margaret
Martindale and Maxine Maynard, respectively.
With faculty advisors from the School of Music,
these directors of the activity have begun making
a serious musical body from a somewhat un-con-
centrated organization. They have procured an
able accompanist, Margaret Kimball, and have
taken great pains in selecting good voices for the
Miss Martindale has achieved choral unity, and
good balance between the sections. The chorus
responds to her direction, moreover. Of the first
group, Mozart, Handel and Brahms, the poems
set by Handel from L'Allegro had the most elan.
The Christmas group, including a Bohemian carol,
and an Austrian folk-song, finished with the
prize-song of the evening, Glory to God in the
Highest, written by Pergolesi. The girls themselves
seemed to enjoy their Rachmaninoff song, while
they did Lee Williams' Song of the Pedler with
much humor and piquancy.
In addition to the choral numbers the program
presented Ruth Pfohl, Ruby Peinert and Romine
Hamilton in a trio of harp, 'cello and violin, play-
ing two works: an Invocation of Massanet and a
movement from the first trio of Haydn, latent
with the feeling of the salon music of Berkeley
Square (a movie). An accompaniment of harp and
obligato of flute, (supplied by Edwin Stein), oc-
curred in the second of the Christmas group, the
Austrian folk-song. Miss Pfohl took the limelight
with two solos, Prelude No. 2 of Salzedo, and Ma-
zurka by Schueker.
With this start the University Women's Glee
Club should establish a precedent for its successors
by having a goal of musical attainment as well as
a desire for bringing together a group of alert
young women. Good-luck to you, gals. -S. P.










America's favorite SHORT CUT,
Miles shrink when you turn to Long Distance
telephone service. You can get "there and back"
in record time.
Improvements are constantly fitting the service
more and more closely to the public's needs. Faster
connections, higher quality transmission, "bargain
hours" after 8:30 P. M.
Business today finds Long Distance a reliable
and economical short cut to sales. You'll find it a
pleasant short cut back home.

Meals for men in the fraternities at the Univer-
sity of Oregon cost on an average slightly more
than 1 cents per person, while the food cost for
women in sororities averages a bit more than nine
cents, a survey by the school of business admin-
istration there reveals. When the pay of the cook
is added, the costs are increased to 181/2 and 12 /2
cents per meal, respectively.

Double Feature


Many students, it was found by a sym-
posium conducted by the Wisconsin Cardinal,
stay awake thinking up methods of staying
awake. One student who would not speak for
pubication said that her infalliable method
of remaining awake in the face of a text-
book is to seat herself in a bathtub. If her
eyes droop she permits the cold water to
run. This girl's second best method is to
perch on a table top. Since the time she slip-
ped to the floor through this method, how-
ever, she hasn't repeated the stunt.
One student sets the alarm clock to ring at
hour intervals. So I suppose that we are to
believe that he doesn't sleep more than one
hour at a time.
Apparently no method was devised for the
benefit of the instructors who must stay up
to mark the papers.
