Little Theater Will Give ‘Seven Days’ The Very Little Theater will open its public program with “Seven Days” by Mary Roberts Rinehart the second week in No vember.

It is not the policy of the Very Little Theater to feature “heavy dram mer,” although Schnitzler, Ibsen, Dunsanv, and Chekov were in cluded in last year’s program. The membership of the theater comprises a mixing of faculty, students and townspeople. The theater itself is situated near Gosser’s on Thirteenth street.

Frosh Bonfire I Of Homecoming To Be Replaced Fireworks on Skinner’s Butte New Idea COMMITTEE NAMED Cate Selected Head of Week-end Activities; Dates of Event November 8 and 4 The annual frosh bonfire usually held during- Homecoming week end, is expected to be replaced by a fire display on Skinner's butte this year. Permission is expected to be granted today by city offi cials, according to Jack Cate, gen eral chairman of Homecoming week-end, appointed yesterday by Tom Tongue, president of the stu dent body. Homecoming week-end this year is November 3 and 4. Cate announced last night as members of the Homecoming di rectorate: Pearl Base, secretary; Bill Russell, rally parade chair man; Fred Whittlesey, Homecom ing dance chairman; Robert Bur cher, decorations chairman; and Doug Polivka, publicity chairman. Rally Parade Slated Homecoming signs and the usual noise parade will be incorporated into one new type of rally parade this year with a mass rally being held at its conclusion, said Cate. In place • of the Homecoming campus luncheon and the alumni dinner will be an alumni luncheon to be held in John Straub Memor ial building. The luncheon will be limited strictly to alumni. The customary Homecoming dance will be held in McArthur court Saturday night, November 4. Homecoming signs will not be made because it is felt that the re sults obtained in the past have not justified the effort and the ex pense involved, according to Cate. Floats to Be Built Elimination of the signs will enable living organizations to spend more time on the floats to take part in the new rally parade. Floats for this parade are to be both decorative and noise-produc ing. Sigma Delta Chi, national pro fessional journalistic fraternity, has announced its willingness to cooperate with the Homecoming directorate by having its annua! Journalism Jam Friday night fol lowing the rally parade. Employment Bureau Assists 381 Students The employment agency of the University has made it possible for 381 students to obtain part time or full time jobs since school started this year. Miss Janet Smith, secretary of the bureau, highly recommended the citizens of Eugene for their support. Students seek part time work doing such things as repairing ra dios and door bells, washing win dows and screens, doing odd jobs in carpentry, making and serving sandwiches for teas and bridge parties and mending clothes. One of the most unusual tele phone calls that the agency has had this year was from a woman requesting a man to come and shake walnuts down from the trees before the school children gathered them all. Horace Lynn, Father Of Clara Fitch, Passes Horace Lyn, father of Mrs. Clara Lyn Fitch of the graduate school, passed away Saturday morning. A brief memorial service was held for him Monday afternoon at the Veateh chapel. Lynn was well known in Eu gene, and resided with his daugh ter, Mrs. Fitch. Permanent Addresses Of Those Seeking Jobs Must Be Filed at Once All students who have ap plied at the employment agency this year for work, whether jobs have been located for them or not, are requested to come to the bureau and make;, out records of their permanent addresses in order that the files may be accurate. It is very necessary that stu dents comply with this, as Miss Janet Smith, secretary of the agency, would like to get in touch with all applicants about their present work or about getting work. Oregon Dad Chieftians Among new officers of the Oregon Dau's association, organization of fathers of University students are, from left to right, Merle R.

Plans Under Way For Annual YW Doughnut Week Sale at Booths Begins Tomorrow; All-American “Sinker” Girl Idea Inaugurated Plans for the annual Doughnut week are well under way, an nounced Joyce Busenbark, general chairman and campus all-Ameri can doughnut girl, yesterday. Wednesday will be official campus doughnut day and Friday dough nuts will be sold in the living or ganizations. The sale will begin tomorrow at 8:30, and a supply of the sinkers will be on hand as long as the de mand continues. Booths will be located on the Colonial theater cor ner, between Oregon and Com merce halls, in front of the old libe, in front of the College Side, and and on the corner of 12th and Uni versity. Doughnut week is sponsored an nually by the campus Y.W.C.A. This is the fourth year that the event has been held as a regular campus munction, and the class that originated the idea, the class of ’34, holds the rank of seniors. Nancy Suomela, student body secretary, was the first doughnut queen; this year the queen idea has been abandoned in favor of the all-American doughnut girl. Doughnuts will be sold in wax paper bags, two for a nickel and are guaranteed by the directorate to be non-greasy, of purest ingre dients. Members of directorate, and girls appointed to sell are request ed by Mis3 Busenbark to meet at 7:30 tonight at the Y bungalow, to discuss final arrangements. Unusual Illusion Noted on Building One of the best examples of an optical illusion can be observed on the west face of the Murray War ner Art museum. Psychology re fers to it as the Poggendorf illu sion. It makes use of the human weakness to overestimate acute angles and underestimate obtuse angle.1. On the face of the museum there are four vertical columns of brick. The remainder is covered by diagonal brick rows forming the dominate design. Where the diagonal lines cross each other a perfect diamond is formed, but where they cross one ot the verti cal columns the illusion is per ceived. It appears to the eye that the point where the diagonal en ters the column is decidedly off set from the point where it con tinues on from the other side when in actuality it continues through in a perfectly straight line. Extension Enrollment Increases in Portland In a letter from Margaret M. Sharp, secretary of the Portland branch of the University of Oregon extension division, the University informational service was admised that enrollment in Portland has in creased 20 per cent over that of last year. • Extension students have until Octobers 21 to formally register and pay their fees. Miss Sharp ex pects the number enrolled at that time will be from 1500 to 1600. Art Library Selling Cards Mrs. Mabel A. Houck announces that she is selling post cards of old Spanish cathedrals. The cards are imported from Spain and show exterior and interior views. U of O Band Gives Concert of Light Classical Tunes Selections From “Mademoiselle Modiste” featured; Solos Effectively Played Music that entertained was fea tured by the first division of the University band in their first con cert of the seaso Sunday. Under the direction of John Stehn they presented a group of light classics. Responding to popular demand, they added “King Cotton,” one of the most popular marches, as an encore. Selections from “Mademoiselle Modiste" by Victor Herbert were I among the gay and infectious tunes that were played during the afternoon. For the first number, “Pasadena Day March” by Vessella was cho sen. Although belonging to the modern marches, this is extremely melodic and has stirring military tempo. Weird pulsing rhythm and vary ing tempos characterized Luigini’s “Ballet Egyptian.” The piccolo solos in this number added to this effect. In “Bridal Rose Overture” by Lavalee the cornet solos were clear and distinct. Often heard as a violin solo, Bo rowski’s “Adaromation” was ef fective as played by the band. In this piece both rhythm and melody play equally important roles. Sons of Oregon Dads Fight Hard Battles Saturday Bone-crushing: and Boxing- Bouts, Free-for-all, and Tumbling Featured at Smoker True to his promise, Mickey Vail, University yell king, had a peppy smoker card ready fqr Ore gon Dads on Saturday afternoon.

Group Forms Federation to Promote UofO Organization of Body Is Announced at Banquet OFFICERS ELECTED Total Membership Will Represent About 40,000 Oregon Citi/.ens; Constitution Adopted To supply a unified statewide body that will act in the interests of the University and of higher education in Oregon, representa tives of five organizations formed a federation, which was formally announced Saturday evening at the annual Dad’s day banquet. The body, which will be known as the University of Oregon Fed eration, will represent a combined membership in all tire organiza tions of 30,000 to 40,000 citizens of the state. Its purpose is to “represent the common interests of the alumni association of the University, the Associated Friends or the university, the Oregon Dads, the Oregon Mothers, and the affiliated living groups.” The federation is not intended to be a consolidation of the or ganizations but will seek to pro mote the best interests of all the groups.

Labor Commissioner Will Probe Janitorial Situation The Emerald drive for fairer working hours for employees of the janitorial system may affect every campus in the state system of higher education and many oth er state and county institutions and municipal school systems, it was revealed yesterday. It was further learned that the administration of the University at present is not planning to fake any action whatsoever in alleviat ing the present nine and one-half hour working schedule imposed upon members of the janitorial service this year. Apparently the administration intends to delay all action until forced by G. H. Gram, state labor commissioner, to change the condi tions, which force the janitors to arrive for work at 6 a. m., and to quit work at 6 p. m., leaving a 2 1-2 hour "lunch” period from 11 until 1:30. Executive-Secretary Earl M. Pal lett told the Emerald that he would "issue a statement” as soon; as directions came to him from the! labor commissioner. It was evident to most observ ers that the decision of the labor commissioner will involve a thor ough study of the Oregon law which declares that no employee of the state, county school district, municipality, or municipal corpor ation shall be required or permit ted to labor more than eight hours in any one day or 48 hours in any one week. The Emerald's com plaint on behalf of the janitors was based upon the fact that they are working 9 1-2 hours a day, and 55 hours a week, and are the vic tims of a “split shift,’’ which takes them off duty during those hours of the day when their work is most easily and efficiently performed. The law was passed bv the legis lative assembly of 1913 as chapter 61, and is designated in the Ore gon code of 1930 as section 49-704. In 1913, before any amendments were made to the law, a charge was brought against the superin tendent of the state insane asylum for violation and he was arrested. The court held that the act ap plied to him as head of the asylum, and the constitutionality of the act was upheld. In another case in 1914 criminal charges were brought against the state board of control for violation of the act, and in this case the court found that the employees were not actually laboring in ex cess of 8 hours a day. At the next session of the legis lature the amendment was altered, apparently to prevent the prosecu tion of officials in charge of state institutions. Chapter 165, Oregon laws 1915, therefore reads: “pro vided, however, that the provisions of this section shall not apply to state istitutions and departments.’’ For 16 years that was the status of the law; but in 1931 a new amendment was passed which did not exempt state institutions from the provisions of the act.
