24 Out of 29 Law
School Graduates
Pass Bar Exams
Dean Morse Congratulated
By Justice of U. S.
Supreme Court
University of Oregon law school
graduates who took the state bar
examinations in July, made an ex
ceptionally fine record this year.
Of the 29 Oregon students, taking
the examinations 24 passed.
From a field of 97 candidates of
the entire state 50 were admitted
to the bar. Among the successful
attorneys were two women, Delia
Avery of Portland, and Ruth M.
Mellinger of Newberg.
In commenting on the outcome
of the examinations, Dean Wayne
L,. Morse, of the law school, said
he is much pleased with the rec
ord made by the Oregon students
because there is a decided move
on the part of the national bar
examiners to restrict the number
of individuals who are admitted
to the bar. The percentage of
Oregon men who succeeded in
passing the state bar examinations
is larger than that of Stanford
law graduates who passed the
California bar examinations.
Dean Morse has received a let
ter from one of the justices of the
supreme court saying. “I wish to
congratulate you on the splendid
showing that the students of the
University of Oregon law school
made at the recent bar examina
“The percentage of failures
among the applicants from your
school was very small in compari
son with the whole class. I am
convinced that your school is do
ing its full part in elevating the
standard of the Bar of Oregon
from a scholastic, legal and ethi
cal standpoint.’’
Onthank Talks Before
Campus Housemothers
The problems of budgeting time,
organizing notes, reading effec
tively, and in general studying ef
ficiently will be taken up by Dean
Carl W. Onthank when he speaks
before the freshman group of
Westminster house Sunday morn
ing at 9:45.
All interested students are in
vited to attend the session.
Unusual Recital Presented
Sunday by John Stark Evans
In a softly lighted auditorium
John Stark Evans presented a
very unusual and individualistic
program yesterday. The audience
which filled the hall almost to its
limits was made up of little chil
dren and many Eugene families,
as well as many University stu
Aside from the beauty of the
music which Evans plays, it is
equally fascinating to watch his
hands seeking the treble keys and
stops; to watch his feet running
lightly over the bass pedals.
Sunday’s programs included for
the most part lighter classics, but
the final number, “Symphonic
Poem — Les Preludes,” was unu
sual, in that though of great depth
it still held the listener’s interest
by its variation of moods. From
soft to loud, with counter melodies
running continually through it,
its surging melodies reminding one
of the sea, it easily held the atten
tion of the audience to the very
“Valse Triste," by Sibelius, well
known and well liked, was also on
yesterday’s program. Its mourn
ful minors, apparent tragedy, and
thrilling climax ominously sug
gesting death all lend toward a
wide play of the listener’s imagi

Installment Fees
Due at Cashier’s
Office in 5 Days
Out of state students and
those paying fees on the install
ment plan have but five days
to make payment at the cash
ier’s office, it was announced
yesterday by E. P. Lyon, cash
About 500 students are being
accommodated by the install
ment plan, and 200 students
have to pay non-resident fees
this term. Only a small num
ber of these have made pay
Students are urged to pay
early in the week to avoid the
inevitable rush Friday and Sat
urday. The office closes Satur
day at noon, and those who
cannot be accommodated by
that time must pay a late fee
of 25 cents per day for every
day of delinquency after that
Every year, the last minute
rush has resulted in many stu
dents being turned away when
noon made it necessary for the
office to close in order to bal
ance its accounts.
traditions Court
To Enforce Rules
A traditions court to act on
cases of violation of campus cus
toms was named last night by Bob
Hall, student body president, to
halt the increasingly flagrant
flouting of time-honored rules of
The court will consist of Bill
Bowerman, vice-president of the
student body, as chairman; Charles
(Cap) Roberts, senior man on the
executive council, as clerk of the
court; Orville Bailey, president of
the Order of the O; Walt Gray,
president of Skull and Daggers,
and president of the National Stu
dent Affairs committee, who will
be named soon. Neal Bush, presi
dent of the junior class, will act
as a member of the court until
the N. S. F. A. president is elected.
Cecil Espy, president of the sen
ior class, has announced that he
will appoint a committee of ten
prominent seniors, called the
senior traditions council, to mete
out punishment. The appoint
ments will be made at the senior
class meeting tonight.
Freshman Women Will
‘Get Wise’ Tomorrow
Tomorrow night at 7:30 the
fun 'will start at the freshman
women's get-wise party at the
women’s gym. Jean Failing,
general chairman, has an
. nounced that arrangements for
the affair are complete for a
hilarious good time.
Members of the A. W. S. coun
cil, Y. W. C. A. cabinet, and W.
A. A. council will act as host
esses. Freshman women will en
joy the skits, dancing, and food,
and have a real get-together
with their councillors.
Students To Make
Last Plea Against
School Grab Bill
Stickers, Cards To Be Sent
To Every Section
Of State
Twenty thousand postcards will
be mailed to voters all over the
state by members of the A. S. U.
O. next week. It will be the stu
dents’ last drive in convincing
Oregonians that the Zorn-Mac
p h e r s o n school wrecking bill
should be defeated at general elec
tions on November 8.
The cards, carrying a printed
message urging taxpayers to vote
317 X No, will be distributed
among all living organizations on
the campus, and each student will
be responsible for 10 cards. He
will address each one to some ac
quaintance of voting age in his
home town, signing his name in
the space allotted at the bottom
of the card.
The cards will then be collected
and mailed by members of the
student vigilance committee who
are in charge of the final campaign
against the school moving meas
Students will also receive auto
mobile stickers to send home to
their parents. According to Art
Potwin, student director of the an
ti-merger organization, 2,500 are
now being printed and will be
ready for distribution next week.
Potwin estimates that 60,000
voters should be reached in all
parts of the state through the stu
dent mailing of cards, averaging
three eligible voters to each fam
ily. The personal contact that will
be realized by having students
signing these cards is expected to
be an effective measure in build
ing up opposition to the bill.
Members of the vigilance com
mittee will meet tonight at 4
o’clock in 110 Johnson to hear
plans for the circulating of the
post cards.
Swimming Meet to
Be on Wednesday
The administrative board of the
intramural contests late last night
changed the time and place of the
finals of the swimming meets
from the men’s pool on Thursday
to the women’s pool on Wednes
day at 7:30 p. m. The change was
made so that both men and women
could attend.
Coach Mike Hoyman also an
nounced that there will be no ad
mission charged and the seating
capacity is limited to 300. In or
der to obtain a good seat, spec
tators are urged to come as early
as possible.
Library Changes Fines
Members of the library staff an
nounce that the 10-cent fine to be
charged in addition to the regular
over-due fines when such fines are
not paid at the time when the
book is returned applies to books
from the circulation library, but
not to the Condon reserve, as pre
viously reported in the Emerald.
Chairman For
Post One of Outstanding
Homecoming Game To Be on OSC
Campus But Dances, Rallies
Will Be Held Here
Appointment of Ned Kinney as
chairman of the Homecoming com
mittee was announced yesterday
by Bob Hall, president of the A.
S. U. O.
Kinney’s naming to this post,
which carries with it the out
standing student activity responsi
bilities of the fall, has been ex
pected for more than a week, and
the official announcement merely
confirmed the predictions of stu
dent leaders.
No statement that would allay
uncertainty as to signs, dances,
rallies and the many other things
that go to make homecoming the
big annual affair could be made
yesterday by Kinney. The deci
sion to hold the festival in con
nection with the Oregon State
game in Corvallis presented prob
lems that have not yet been
ironed out.
“Since homecoming will not be
held in conjunction With a game
on this campus, many new fea
tures will have to be worked out,”
Kinney said yesterday. “The
committee expects to develop
plans that will make the annual
festival as attractive to students
and alumni as it has been in the
past. Just what they will call for
cannot be said now.
Program Here Full
“Of course, there will be dances,
rallies and opportunities for re
unions between alumni and stu
dents. As to signs and the bon
fire, we cannot say just yet.”
Bob Hall, in announcing the ap
pointment of Kinney, made the
following statement:
“It is hoped that students in
the dormitories and houses will en
courage all alumni to come here
for the dances and reunions. It is
quite likely that awards will be
made as in the past for the house
having the most grads back.
“Making the affair as large and
as attractive as in the past will be
difficult under the conditions to be

Large Banquet To Be Held
In Men’s Dormitory;
Cups Offered
On Saturday, October 29, dads
of the state will assemble on the
University campus to observe the

tion of Dads will be the largest
ever to gather for this event.
Arrangements have been made
for the first time to have the ban
quet in the men’s dormitory in
stead of in McArthur court. Ow
ing to the fact that the dormitory
has better facilities for banquet I
preparations, dads will be given
the opportunity of having a hot j
meal. The committee is striving

By Big Reception
Twenty-five Eugene club

last evening that plans had

Band Members
Earn Their Fare
Says John Stehn
“You fellows who play lh the
band have It easy. I wish I could
get all my expenses paid every
time I went to Portland to see a
"Oh, yeah?”
That’s what any band member
would have said if somebody had
made that envious remark to him
last week.
Pacts released last week by
Hand Director John Stehn relative
to the band's activities in Port
land during the Washington week
end show clearly that the horn
tooters und piccolo-pluckers earn
everything they get in the way of
railroad fare and hotel expenses.
At that time the band had an
actual playing time of nine hours
while they were in Portland. Dis
tance covered on the hoof aggre
gated more than 10 miles.
Here's the imposing list of ap
pearances from 4 p. m., Friday
till 10:45 p. m., Saturday: five
street parades and serenades, sev
en radio programs, and two theat
rical programs. Oh, yes, and one
football game!
If you’re thinking about joining
the University band, young man,
you’d better trot up to the dispen
sary and let the doc check your
arches, lungs, heart, and general
endurance. It’s a tough life!

‘Campus Proper’ Sole
Taboo Territory
Chancellor Made ‘Chief Executive’
Of Board; Dr. Hall Gets
Vote of Thanks
A late United Press bulletin to
the Eugene Morning News last
night stated that “students will
be permitted to drive autos in the
communities in which colleges are
located, hut will not be permitted
to drive on the campus proper.”
PORTLAND. Ore., Oct. 17—
(Special)—The State Board of
Higher Education today revoked
its previous drastic legislation on
student-owned and student-oper
ated automobiles. In its place the
executive body substituted a con
siderably more lenient ruling pro
viding for the supervision of stu
dent cars by the administrative
head of all the schools—Dr. *W. J.
Kerr, chancellor of higher educa
tion. The tempering of the law
means that Carlton Spencer can
return to his law office, that O. L.
Rhinesmith will no longer have to
patrol the University campus, and
that students who use their auto
mobiles judiciously and discrlmi
nately need have no fear of the
privilege being denied them.
Ruling’s Life Stormy
The original ruling of the board
had a short life, but a tempestu
ous one. On May 23 this legisla
tion was passed! “Student automo
biles should be forbidden. Effec
tive at thd beginning of the fall
term of 1932-33.”
Today that was modified as fol
lows :
"That the use of automobiles by
students be regulated to the end
that such use shall not in any way
be a detriment to maintenance of
the highest standards of scholar
ship, social life, and general wel
fare of the institutions and the in
dividual members thereof, and that
the administration of this regula
tion be under the jurisdiction of
the chancellor.”
Briefly summarized, the new
rule provides for the driving of
cars by all students, but reserves
the right to deny the privilege to
any student who abuses it.
Neuberger Acta for Students
Shortly before the announcing
of the modified automobile ban,
Dick Neuberger, editor of the Ore
gon Emerald, appeared before the
board as the representative of the
University students. He urged the
adoption of a modified rule, saying
the general sentiment of the stu
dents was against the original
