Houses Seeurhig High
Sales Percentage
Sales for the 1934 Oregana will
start at 12:30 today, according to
an announcement made last night
by Newton Steams, business man
ager, and Barney Clark, editor of
this year’s book.
An entirely new payment plan
has been devised by the Oregana
staff to enable more, students to
buy books.Fifty cents will be asked
as a down-payment on the book,
$1.00 will be required at the time of
winter registration, $1.00 at spring
registration, and the remaining
$2.00 will be paid from the $5.00
breakage fee which every student
is required to pay at the first of
the year.
“We believe this plan will make
it much easier for students to pur
chase Oteganas,” stated Barney
Clark last night. “Many who have
desired them in the past have
lacked sufficient ready cash at the
time of collection to make full pay
ment on the book.”
Bikman Selected Manager

last evening, Stearns announced
the appointment of Sam Bikman
as circulation manager of the
book. Bikrnan was business-mana

start until 12:30 today, at which
time the house representative of
the book can begin signing mem
bers of his particular organization.
The business manager explained
that while only 50 cents is required
as a deposit on the book, a larger
amount may be paid at this time
if desired. To the first men’s and
the first women's organization se
curing a 100 per cent total of sub
scriptions of those living in the
house will be awarded silver loving
cups. These awards are now in the
possession of Delta Delta Delta
and Pi Kappa Alpha.
Office Hours Scheduled

from 1 until 5 this afternoon, for
representatives of 100 per cent or
ganizations to bring in their sales
books. After 5 o’colck, should a.

that hour it will be necessary to

morning at the Oregana offices in
the Igloo.
To houses securing 100 per cent
ownership, although not the first
to reach the top, will be awarded
free Oreganas for their libraries,

year. He has just completed an
engagement in Portland where he
reqeived highest praise. In speak
ing of it, the Oregonian said:
“His tone was of most agree
able texture and received a very
poetic treatment. There was a re
markable steadiness to his flow of
tone which attested well-controlled
bowing. His precisely turned
phrases were all to the advantage
of the score. He made Saint-Saens’
pleading melodies his own, and in
the spirited finale showed that
there is a plentiful amount of fire
and assurance in reserve for the
most high-spirited of movements.
His technique was ample, and his
manner of using it simple and ef

At Polls Today
Race for Governorship
Is Tliree-Gornered
Campaign at Close

Changes Await Final
Climaxing one of the most heated
political campaigns in many years,
Oregon voters go to the polls today
to stamp verdicts of significance
throughout the nation.
With indications of a record vote
bright, gubernatorial candidates
last night issued final exhortations
in an attempt to win over those
voters yet wavering as to choice.
A three-cornered scramble for
the governorship between Joe E.
Dunne, Republican; Charles H.
Martin, Democrat; and Peter Zim
merman, independent; is seen by
close political observers.
Platforms Outlined
Dunne, a legislator of long
standing, is basing his platform
upon equivocable opposition to the
‘New Deal’ and insistence upon a
‘pay as you go’ policy. Martin, on
the other hand, was spokesman in
the House of Representatives for
the Democratic administration and
looks toward economic recovery
through the policies of President
Zimmerman, like Dunne pos
sessed of senatorial experience,
promises progressive legislation
for all the people alike.
Of all the measures appearing
on the ballot, none has aroused
such widespread comment as the
proposed 20-mill tax limitation
amendment. Revenue obtained un
der this measure, which proposes
a limitation on taxable property,
would be divided as follows: for
state purposes, two mills or 10 per
cent; for county, five mills or 25
per cent; for school district, five
mills or 25 per cent; and for any
city, eight mills, or 40 per cent.
Other measures in the spot
light are the healing arts amend
ment and the grange power bill.
Polls will be open from 8 a. m. to
8 p. m.

Eight, new Theta Sigma Phi
pins are being worn by the new
members of the national journal
ism honorary initiated Sunday

Matrix pins are: Marian Allen,
Ann-Reed Burns, Miriam Eichner,
Ruth Storla, Velma McIntyre, Ro
berta Moody, Barbara Wegg and
Henriette Horak. Carroll Wells, of
Portland, who was on the way to
the initiation eary Sunday morn
ing was unable to get here because
of car trouble, and will be initiated
at a later date. Hilda Gillam, and
Louise Anderson, two other
pledges who were not able to be
present will also be initiated in the
Frances Hardy, president of the
organization was in charge of the
initiation. Mrs. Eric W. Allen, Mrs.
George Turnbull, and Genevieve
Dunlop represented the alumna of
the group. Mrs. Allen spoke at the
breakfast, and outlined the pur
pose and work of Theta Sigma
Phi, and its significance on the
campus, as well as its national
scope in newspaper work.
The next meeting of the group
will be Thursday evening, at the
home of Mrs. Allen. At that time
Ruth McClain, who attended the
national convention of Theta Sig
ma Phi in Chicago this summer,
will give her report.
Only a few articles have been
turned in at the University depot
office over the wek-end. They are
an umbrella, a hat, and a book.

group we send to Portland this
year for the state committee will
average as well as all the groups
we have sent in recent years, and it
is to be remembered that Oregon
has usually secured one of the ap
"These boys are comforts to ed
ucators when asked if endeavors
bear any fruits. They would be a.
credit to any institution, and I
would have nofear of sending all
five to Oxford with expectation of
winning high honors for them.”
James W. Brooke, '34, Eugene,
is entering his first year of medic
ine. He received the Freshman

Two California
Campi Scenes
OfRiots, Fights
Moore Continues Attack!
On ‘Radicalism’
Tomatoes Thrown
Students on Los Angeles,
Berkeley Campus Give
BERKLEY, Calif., Nov. 5—(AD
—Egg and tomato throwing dis
orders on one campus and a dra
matic tearful warning against
communism on another today cli
maxed contention in California’s
state university over radicalism
and the suspension of five students
on the southern campus.
In a near riot on the Berkeley
campus, students and faculty
members alike were spattered with
eggs and tomatoes hurled to dis
rupt a meeting held to protest tha
suspensions and the “rising tide of
fascism and reaction.” A projected
general classroom strike fizzled
Moore Sheds Tears
In Los Angeles, Provost Ernest
C. Moore of the southern school,
charged, with tears coursing his
cheeks, that a communist "cell of
agitation” had been established on
his campus, under direct orders of
the Moscow third internationale.
Scuffling developed at Berkeley
in a crowd of more than 2,000 stu
dents, most of them apparently
looking on out of curiosity,-which
assembled immediately outside the
campus because the meeting was
not permitted within university
grounds. One student was cut over
the eye.
Students Sing
Only a few Berkeley students
stalked out of their classes at the
strike deadline. The row, generated
in the street outside the campus
gate, ended with everybody sing
ing “Hail, California," the univer
sity hymn.
But, between the ‘walkout” and
the hymn, blows were struck, a
girl speaker was splattered with
egg yolk and broke into tears, fac
utly members were hit, and a sec
tion of the crowd wore itself
hoarse with boos, college cheers
and just noise.
Uncanny accuracy was displayed
in the egg and tomato barrage.
One speaker was silenced when an
egg verging on maturity skipped
directly into his megaphone.
Infirinary Patronage
Falls Over Weekend
Notwithstanding rallies, rain
storms and wet football games, the
infirmary had only two patients
over the week-end, Caroline Scott
and Howard Lee.
Lee, who has been ill about two
weeks, was taken to the Eugene
hospital yesterday. Miss Scott was
placed there on Sunday.
Dogs Steal Football Heroes’
Act Oregon-Montana Game
JF there wasn’t any too much of j
the old fight displayed by either [
.earn last Saturday during the
>pening minutes of the Oregon
Montana game, certainly it was
furnished by an over-friendly dog
vhich insistedd on going into the
jame every few minutes to "sub
stitute” for a player he didn’t
:hink was doing very well.
It appeared that the canine was
■nore interested in the ^ame than
:he spectators. Several players
ind the referees profanely suggest
;d to the dog that he quit the game
tnd permit it to be played by men
vho had had more experience, but
vhen they threw handfuls of dirt
it him, he sensed a game and was
ill for it. A beckoning whistle
from the announcer’s loud speaker
lid not attract him.
Fearful that the pooch would
:ake part in the huddles and con
vey damaging information to Mon
tana, the Ducks combined forces
and l)ad him carried off the field,
where he continued to watch with
a critical eye.
Just after the second half, when
things began to look more active
on the field, it came to pass that
two dogs began to fight. Now, that
is usually not news, but when dogs
fight in the rain, that is news. One
of the mutts was apparently re
lated to one of these dachshunds,
or family dogs which are long
enough for all the k*ds to pet at
once, half a dog high, you know,
and two dogs long. The antagonist
was a slightly larger and squatty
looking terrier. They milled about
in a puddle of water until the ter
rier made a break for it. The last
I saw of the dachshundt, he was in
quiring if anyone had seen a little
dog go by with a black eye and a
lowered tail.
