Campus Leaders Launch Hot
Campaign to Match ASOSC
Total of 1236 Memberships
By Robert Lucas
In the intense competition be
tween Oregon’s two larger schools
of higher education for student
body members, Oregon State yes
terday flashed past the University
of Oregon. Swimming about in the
wake of the sister institution, Uni
versity campus leaders have col
lected their startled wits and
barged into an exhaustive drive of
their own, in an attempt to surpass
On registration day of this term,
700 A.S.U.O. student body cards
were sold. The number of cards
sold by today, four days later, was
925. The offices of the Associated
Students report a sluggish move
ment of student body cards.
On Monday, April 1, a banner
line screamed across the front page
of the Oregon State Barometer,
daily publication of that institu
tion. It read, “ACTIVITIES
DROPPED.” A story on the front
page deplored the fact that the
board of control of that school had
found it necessary to suspend the
Oregon State student body pro
gram for the first time since 1910.
By April 1 only 473 student body
cards had been purchased by a stu
dent body of 2300. The board gave
the student body officials just two
days to secure a majority member
ship in the associated students, or
at least 1150 card holders.
In the meantime the fate of such
activities as the Barometer, mad
rigal and glee clubs, band, foren
sics, orchestra, all athletics includ
ing baseball, track, tennis, golf,
spring football, and the general
athletic program of upkeep and re
pair of fields, hung in the air.
O.S.C. Drive Succeeds
Two days later another banner
stretched its way across the cam
pus publication, declaring in black
type, “1236 CARDS SUPPORT
ASOSC.” The OSC drive had net
ted 763 signers in two days!

Men’s Groups Lag in Race
For ASUO Activity Tickets
By Peggy Chessman
Women students lead today in the race for ownership of
A.S.U.O. cards with two houses reported 100 per cent and six
others lacking but two or three cards in order to fulfill their
quota. Alpha Xi Delta and Delta Delta Delta reports indicate
complete sales within their houses, while Kappa Kappa Gamma,
Kappa Alpha Theta, Pi Beta Phi, Alpha Phi, Zeta Tau Alpha
and Chi Omega expect 100 per cent purchase within the week.
Beta Theta Pi, with an 87 per>
cent membership, heads the list of
men’s organizations, with Phi Del
ta Theta and Chi Psi close behind.
Tickets may still be secured at
the cashier’s office in Johnson hail.
The deadline for payments has been
extended until April 15.
Virgil Esteb and Jim Blais, co
chairmen for the spring term drive,
said last night, “While students
have responded to the absolute
need for greater support of the
Oregon student body organization
to a considerable extent, there has
been an unwarranted negligence on
the part of many, particularly the
men. We appeal to them to rise
to the support of the University.
The women are coming through
loyally but the men are late in ac
cepting their challenge. Buy your
card now. Don’t forget that your
support is essential.”

independent living groups were
