Graduate Managers Both Resign Positions OREGON DAILY EMERALD OREGON’S INDEPENDENT COLLEGE DAILY Glasses Continue in Spite of Wild Rumors VOLUME XXXVII UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1936 NUMBER 82 Rosson And Stoddard Resign ~ t -4WS, YW Nominations Today Miller Says Illness Battle Succeeding; School Not to Close Physician Denies Report Of Paralysis Attacks; Forty Have Influenza, Five Pneumonia Dr. Fred N. Miller of the Uni versity health service yesterday definitely denied the rumor that there are cases of infantile paraly sis on the University campus. “Among the men conditions with regard to influenza has improved. There are, however, more new cases among the women.” Dr. Mil ler said, in refuting reports which have swept the campus. 40 to 50 Flu Cases “In view of the fact that not all cases present themselves to the health service for an early diagno sis, it is impossible to say exactly how many cases of influenza there are at the present time, but so nearly as we can estimate there are between 40 and 50 cases of it. “There have been five cases of pneumonia. One of these has been severly ill. “I should like to appeal to the students to refrain from spreading rumors about the health situation on the campus, for such gossip does a great deal of harm and needlessly alarms many people,” said Dr. Miller. No More Paralysis Cases In regard to the sickness that has caused the greatest rumors, infantile paralysis, Dr. Miller said, “as was reported last week, there has been one suspected case of in fantile paralysis. No other student has this disease or has been sus pected of having it and I have been informed by the county health officer that no new case has been reported in the last week and there is only one other case in the community.” “In the case of the individual on the campus, the student is at pres ent not sick and it is expected that she will be able to leave for her home to convalesce in a few days.” Emerald to Inform Campus “If conditions get worse and there are more cases, the students will be informed through the Em erald,” said Dr. Miller. “In no event, however, will the health ser vice attempt to dismiss any classes or close the University, unless such action should be taken generally throughout the community and state.” (Please turn to page tivo) Cuthbert Speaks On Rock Gardens Fred A. Cuthbert, associate pro fessor of landscape architecture, spoke before the Eugene Garden club last night on the various kinds and locations of rock gardens. Rock gardens are nice in their place, according to Mr. Cuthbert, but that place isn't in the average small back yard.

Steps Taken To Stir Juniors Moves to Call Meeting Next Week Made by Adviser, Miss Peck Hoping to stir the stagnant ac tivities of the junior class into action, Grace Peck, secretary, and George Turnbull, faculty adviser, yesterday took moves to call a meeting of the third year students early next week. Since the ineligibility of the pres ident and vice-president, Kenneth BeLieu and Carmen Curry, respec tively, the class has been groping about for a solution to supply an eligible leader.

The action of Miss Peck and Mr. Turnbull was taken in the interest of the class with a view to the im portance of getting class activities under way. It was expected that Roland Rourke, vice-president of the ASUO, would be asked to take neecssary action to call a meeting. Leaders of the class expressed a desire last night that the scholar ship committee would act before next week so the class, in the event of a meeting, could have its action before them.
