Year, Chancellor Kerr
Tells Emerald
Student aid under the federal
employment relief program will be
continued for the rest of the school
year, Chancellor W. J. Kerr told
the Emerald last night on his re
turn from Portland. Kerr said that
he had seen telegrams received by
Acting President Peavey of Ore

McNary and Steiwer which denied
that there is any danger of discon
tinuation of the student work.
Senators McNary and Steiwer
conferred yesterday with Harry L.
Hopkins, FERA chief, the tele
grams said, and were told that
money would be available to carry
needy students through this school
year. Hopkins stated that he was
telegraphing this information to

This announcement will be “good
news’’ for 196 University students,
who were yesterday confronted
with the possible necessity of
withdrawing from school, when the
University’s committee on federal
emergency relief for students sent
out notices that all assignments of
CWA work for April, May, and
June had been cancelled pending
further instructions.
The announcement that the work
was to be discontinued created a
virtual panic at trie University em
ployment office in the Y hut yes
terday, where a steady stream of
worried students appealed to Miss
Janet Smith, employment secre
tary, for any type of odd jobs that
they might earn funds to stay in
school for the remainder of the
school year.
As University officials last night
had received no official notifica
tion, they could set no time for
resumption of work on the part of

Project Stopped
Word was received by the ex
tension division Saturday of the
discontinuance of the civil works
service projects correspondence
courses, effective at once. Regis
trations had reached 395 students,
but lack of funds necessitates the
discontinuance of the project.
The project accomplished its
purpose in hiring unemployed
teachers, but few of the students
had finished much of their work.
Miss Mozelle Hair, of the exten
sion division, said that it is possi
ble some of the more popular
courses may be continued. Facts
discovered in this project show
that English courses are the most
popular, just as in the regular
correspondence work.
The project was started winter

cai reading courses which were
offered free to adults.

Registration Put
At Figure of 1912
At End of Week
Number Shows Slight Decrease;
Final Expected Total Is Set
At 1950 Students
University registration at the
end of the first week of the spring
term totaled 1912, according to
figures released by Assistant Reg
istrar Clifford Constance yester
day. This is a decrease of four
per cent from the total at this
time last year of 1993 students.
The schools of journalism, phys
ical education, and home econom
ics showed an increase in attend
ance over last year, while the
other schools and colleges de
creased in enrollment.
Among the classes, the fresh
man was the only one to show a
boost in first week figures with
497 students registered, 12 per
cent more than in 1933. The grad
uate registration shows a decrease
of 22 per cent in enrollment at
this time.
Men have the greater drop from
last year with 66 fewer students,
while the women have only 10 less
“We have every expectation of
a registration of 1950 students
this term,” stated Constance yes
The final date for all registra
tion is Saturday noon, April 7, and
any students wishing to register
after that time can do so only by
special petition, said Constance.

Figures released last night by J
O. Lindstrom, business manager
of the University, show that more
than half of those registering since
the beginning of the term have
chosen to take advantage of the
optional fee payment proclaimed by
placards at the cashier’s window.
These signs, which announced to
the student that the payment of
the $5 student body fee and the
50 cent class fee was entirely op
tional, were posted by the order of
the state higher board of educa
tion in accordance with an opinion
received from the attorney-gener
al regarding the legality of the
compulsory collection of fees. This
opinion, submitted on request of
the board, was written early in
March but was not made public
until a few days before the date
of registration. It affects all other
institutions of higher learning in
the state as well as the University.
It i3 possible that the board will
alter its decision at its regular
meeting scheduled for April 16.
Student body officials, however,
are doubtful of the possibility that
the board will reverse itself, and
are making plans to function un
der the present arrangements.
Already 100 students have re
canted their original failure to pay
student body fees and have paid
the additional $5 entitling them to
A.S.U.O. membership, according
to Tom Stoddard, assistant gradu
ate manager. Alpha Phi i3 the

government at Oregon State col
lege has been imperiled by the ac
tion of the board, Hugh Rosson,
graduate manager of the A.S.U.O.,
announces that that organization
is financially able to meet the
strain on student funds. Despite
the fact that the ruling reprived
the Oregon student coffers of an
expected sum of approximately
$5000, the spring athletic program

Tongue Explains
Position of ASUO
On Membership
Stauilent Administration Desires
Student Cooperation But
Will Not Beg; Support
Tom Tongue, president of the
associated students, last night
made clear the stand of that or
ganization regarding the ruling of
the state board that student body
fees be made opti'orial. His State
ment follows:
"Although the decision of the
attorney general in ruling that
the compulsory associated student
body fee is illegal raises many dif
ficulties, it. also presents an op
portunity to bring to the attention
of the students the value of their
membership privileges and the im
portance of the student activities.
Though the student administration
hopes to have the continued sup
port and cooperation of all stu
dents who believe in student gov
ernment and who wish to partici
pate in student, body activities, it
will attempt neither to force nor
to beg students who are not mem
bers to join the association.
"It will be necessary, however,
to draw a sharp line of distinction
between the privileges of those
students who are members and
those who are not members, for
it would not be fair to those who
have continued as loyal support
ers to allow non-members to take
advantage of the privileges which
they have made possible.”

With the membership of the A.

busy yesterday completing plans

Those‘who tjicl not pay their

registration can do so by signing
a promise to pay the $5 fee as an

The other function of the com

Writes Book on Codes
“The Commerce Clause of the

book by Bernard C. Gavit, who
taught law at the University in
1928-29, has been recently received
by the law school library. Gavit is
now professor of law at the Uni
versity of Indiana.
The book is of particular inter
est at this time, since the power of
the recovery codes comes mainly
from the commerce clause. This
book considers cases which have
arisen under this clause.
