Rush Week to Be Shortened in Fall, Council Decides Interfraternity Group Adopts Rules Submitted by- Committee Of Presidents A resolution to reduce rush week next fall by one day was unani mously adopted by the Interfrat ernity council yesterday at a meet ing in Johnson hall at the sugges tion of a committee which was ap pointed at the last council dinner, to draw up and prepare rushing rules for fall, winter and spring terms for next year. The committee headed by Grant Thuemmel, assisted by Bill Phipps and Jack Vaughn, submitted the resolution, which was approved without a dissenting vote. The election of council officers for next year placed Ray Mize in the position of president, Keith Powers, vice president, and Keith Wilson as secretary-treasurer. The retiring officers are Ed Martindale, president; Howard Bobbitt, vice president; Hal Birk inshaw, secretary-treasurer. Virgil Earl, deal of men, was un animously re-elected adviser to the group. Bill Russell was appointed chair man of the Interfraternity council dance, for which no date has as yet been set. Text of the resolution follows; “Whereas: the Interfraternity council of the University of Ore gon, feeling that rush week was too long, have for the following reasons seen fit to petition the registrar’s office for the aftermen tioned changes, to-wit: “1. One less day of active rush ing would be less strain and more apt to leave the incoming men in better physical condition to form (Continued on Page Two) Moot Trial Verdict Ought to Make Defendants’ Hair Curl Fifteen hundred and fifty dol lars is quite an attractive remuner ation for one year’s participation in freshman debate, but that is the amount that Charles Dolloff, third year law student at the Uni versity, was awarded in last night’s Oregon law school moot trial,at the circuit court because of his ability to prove that he was a curly-headed member of the Uni versity freshman debate squad dur ing his first year on the campus. Arthur Ireland and John Long, attorneys for Dolloff in his libel suit against Charles Stocklen and James Landye, brought out the evidence that Dolloff participated in freshman debate to prove that he was the “curly haired debater” mentioned in a libelous note, writ ten by Stocklen and Landye and later posted on the law school bul letin board. (The defense did not question the fact that Dolloff is curly haired.) Defense attorneys Bill Kinley and Sig Seashore attempted to show that Dolloff is not the only curly haired debater in the senior class of the University law school by introducing Bill Goodwin. The defense showed that the latter is curly haired, but apparently did not show to the satisfaction of the jury that he could be considered a debater. The plaintiff charged that the note, admittedly written by Stock len and Landye and containing li belous statements to the effect that a certain curly haired debater was having a hard time securing recommendations from two mem bers of the bar as a requirement for taking the bar exam, was con strued by most of its readers as referring to him. Stocklen further charged that as a result of the negligence of the defense in per mitting the note to come before the public eye, he suffered special injury, through the loss of his job, to the extent of $100, and general damages to his reputation and so cial standing to the extent of $2000. Walter Hempstead, former speech instructor at the University closely connected with debate ac tivities, took the stand as another of the surprise witnesses for the defense. Hempstead testified that Stocklen was flattering himself a little in assuming that the term “debater” could be accurately ap (Continued on Page Two) Summer Term Sessions Will Start June 18 Variety of Courses Given By Expert Teachers COACHES TO TEACH Special Feature of Program to Be Class for County School Heads During July A wide variety of courses, many of them to be taught by nationally recognized experts and authorities, will be offered this summer in ses sions to be held by the University iif Eugene and Portland, Oregon State College at Corvallis, and the state normal schools at Monmouth, Ashland and LaGrande, it was an nounced yesterday by Alfred Pow ers, dean and director of general extension and head of summer school work for the state system of higher education.

Fees Required by Committee Gtudent body officers for the school year 1934-35 will be in stalled at 11 o’clock this morning at a public assembly of students in Gerlinger hall, for which all classes will be dismissed. The administration of oaths to | the new leaders will be given by ! Tom Tongue, retiring president of the A. S. U. O. to the new offi cers: Joe Renner, president; Bill Berg, vice-president; Nancy Arch bold, secretary; Elizabeth Bend strup, senior woman; Bob Miller, senior man; and Cosgrove LaBarre, junior finance man. Resolution Froposed A resolution, providing that var sity swimmers who are not mem bers of the A. S. U. O. this term, but who were recommended by the coach be awarded letters for com petition last term, be given per mission to purchase these awards and sweaters, without being forced to join the student body. The swimmers affected by the executive council ruling that they be required to be student body members in order to receive their awards, say that their sport was almost entyely a winter term ac tivity, as was basketball, but that because a swimming meet was scheduled for a few days after the end of the term, the coach could not make the recommendations for awards until spring term. The basketball letters were awarded last term 'without the players be ing required to have spring term student body cards. The men also claim that they had an understanding with Hugh E. Rosson, graduate manager, that they would be given major awards if they would pay cost of the let ters and sweaters. Nothing was said, about the necessity of be longing to the student body spring term, as optional membership was not then anticipated. Argument Given The reasons given by the athlet ic committee for not making the awards are as follows: “The athletic committee desired to have those swimmers who were entitled to awards be members of the A.S.U.O. because it felt that if these men were not enough in terested in the organization to be come members they should not be permitted to wear the official award of the organization. “The committee realized that most of the competition had taken place during the preceding term when all the swimmers were mem bers of the A. S .U. O., but inas much as at least one meet was held (Continued on Pane Three) Weekend Program FRIDAY 11:00-12:00—Installation of student body officers in Gerlinger hall. 12:00-2:00—Campus Luncheon; pleding to Friars; pledging to Mortar Board; concert by University band; pre-initiation of Sigma Delta Chi. 12:45-1:15—Coronation of Queen Josephine. 2:00—Tennis court dance; dance contest; male beauty contest. 2:00- Frosh telegraphic track meet with Idaho and Montana. 3:30—Varsity baseball game, Reinhart field, University of Wash ington vs. University of Oregon. 3:00-5:30—Tea for Mothers by Y.

NEWTON It seems logical that a family containing one good musician would also contain others. This doesn’t always follow, but last night it did when four members of the Moore family, all sisters, appeared at the Music auditorium. Each presented a short group of numbers, and at the end of the program all four appeared in an ensemble number. Unfortunately the writer was not able to present^for the first group of piano numbers by Elaine Moore. It has been said that her music is rather exceptional. She played a Chopin Waltz in A flat, and Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 8. Martha Moore, pianist; Irene Moore, soprano; and Cora Moore, organist, all had in common ex pressive ability, and a capacity for musical shading which had mean meaning and continuity. Particu larly was this true of the last two. Miss Martha Moore, perhaps lacks a bit in experience, though her se lections were done musically. Melodic continuity, musicianship, and expressive ability have always been maintained herein as more important than technical perfec tion, within certain bounds, of course. Irene Moore’s rendition of the “Nocturne" by Curan was full of delicate emotion. It was effective and sincere. Cora Moore's interpretation of the Finale of Tschaikowsky’s Sym phony Pathetique was full of the strength and shifting moodiness which is associated with that com poser’s works. The final number was the al ways beautiful “Ave Maria" by Gounod. Martha Moore played the violin obligato, Klaine Moore the piano accompaniment on which the melody was constructed, and Irene Moore the soprano solo, while Cora Moore added a few melodic' har monies on the organ. An exceptionally large crowd ap peared for this recital.
