Book Store Difficulties
To Be Discussed
At a. recent meeting in Seattle of
tlie West Coast Division of Asso
ciation . of College Book Stores of
America, M. F. McClain, manager
of the local student Co-op store, was
chosen to represent the west coast
division in the annual meeting of
the American Association of College
, Book Stores at Atlantic City, May
▼ 14 to 17. Mr. McClain attended a
national convention of the associa
tion two years ago when it met in
St. Louis. At that time he was
sent by the board of directors of
the Co-op store to study college book
store problems in the eastern section
of the country.
The west coast organization was
completed a year ago, culminating
the effort of several years on the
part of Mr. McClain and other
prominent western college book
store managers. At present eleven
strictly institutional book stores
comprise the western division of the
organization. They are University
of California at Los Angeles, Uni
versity of Southern California, Stan
ford University, University of Cali
fornia, California State Teachers’
College at San Jose, University of
Washington, Washington State Col
lege, Washington State Normal at
Bellingham, University of British
Columbia at Vancouver, B. C., Ore
gon State College, and University
Mr. McClain is being sent east to
the convention to present a num
ber of specific problems of the
western book store managers. Be
cause of the great distance from
the publishing centers the western
stores must carry larger stocks of
books than any of the eastern stores.
This necessitates a larger stock
carry-over during the vacation sea
son. The long distance also makes
necessary very high freight rates.
The margin of profit for the western
stores is thus very narrow. Eastern
stores have the advantage of quick
delivery and smaller
Very slight freight bill. The west
ern group is also attempting to se
cure better conditions of refund for
unused stock, and a better margin
of discount than the standard one
now in use all over the country.

If our.information about golf be
ing a minor sport at O. S. C. is cor
rect, the University of Oregon
players will be the only entrants in
the coast tournament who are not
awarded some kind of emblem for
their services. Golf is a minor sport
at Washington, Stanford, and Cali
fornia, and a major event at U.
Golf should be ranked as a minor
sport on this campus. It is one of
the fastest growing forms of col
legiate athletic endeavor and should
be recognized here. Already the
matter has been discussed by the
Order of the “O” and they have
passed favorably on making golf a
minor sport. It will be one of the
important issues to be decided upon
at the coming student body elec
tions and should receive enthusiastic
support from Oregon .students.
Willos Gets One
Patterson Stops Execution
At Judge’s Word
(By United Press)
SALEM, Oregon, April 12.—James
Willos and Ellsworth Kelley, con
victs who were condemned to death
on the gallows at the state prison
Friday, were granted an official re
prieve of one week by the governor’s
office here late today.
The reprieve was issued by the
governor’s secretary, Beatrice Wal
ton, upon telegraphic instruction
from Governor I. I. Patterson at
The governor acted upon a long
distance telephone request made by
Chief Justice John L. Rand, on be
half of himself and four other
justices, that the sentences be com
muted to life imprisonment. The
justices said they were acting as
citizens and not in their official
The last legal resource had been
lost by friends of the pair when an
application for a stay of execution
and the appointment of a sanity
commission to examine Willos was
denied by Judge Percy R. Kelly of
Albany here today.
It was after Judge Kelly had
rendered his decision that the su
premo court justices conferred and
decided to request Governor Patter
son to commute the death sentences
to life imprisonment.
