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

Text of the resolution follows;
“Whereas: the Interfraternity

too long, have for the following
reasons seen fit to petition the

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
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

Varsity Men Claim Letters Won
Last Term; A.S.U.O. 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

Moore Sisters Give Varied9
Well-Done Musical Program
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
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.
