Prospect of another New Deal

the nation’s overwhelming endorse
ment of Rooseveltian policies. The
president’s plurality approached
the ter. million mark last night.
Although no definite announce
ment has been made concerning the
form the new unemployment legis

Tandy’s New Plane
Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, who
has done no private flying since
last year when he suddenly took
up residence in England, made a
test hop yesterday in a plane which
he himself helped design. Friends
of the colonel expressed an opinion
that he would soon be making
short trips around Europe.
Lindy’s new plane, claimed by
its makers to be the fastest tour
ing monoplane ever built in Eng
land, is equipped with tandem
seats which can be converted into
bunks and has a cruising range of
1,000 miles.
Adherence to League

"Because there has been .one fail

Still at It
Madrid was crumbling under a
withering fire of cannon and ma
chine guns yesterday as the bloody
Spanish civil war went into its one
hundred and eleventh birthday. The
bombardment already has taken a
toll of approximately 2,000 lives,
an unconfirmed report from Lisbon
said last night.
Gen. Jose Varela, who is direct
ing the insurgent drive from a
front seven miles outside the city,
predicted the capital’s fall "inside
the week, perhaps.”

Late hours are the custom

A cooperative flying club has
been formed by the students at
the San Jose State college and
they have recently purchased an
airplane for their development in
flying. The plane was flown
from Bradford, Pennsylvania, by
a state student aviator. The
members of the club will be
able to receive flying time at
the inexpensive cost of about 50
cents per hour which is very
inexpensive when contrasted
with the regular price of $4.50
for an hour’s flying time in oth
er aviation schools.

Reason for Touch-tackle
Injuries Will Be Sought
By Investigator Washke
Intramural Activity Will Be Dropped
Unless Sandlot Casualty Causes Can
Be Found and Remedied
Oregon's first year of touch football as an intramural sport ended
last night leaving behind it one student wifh a fractured skull in the
Sacred Heart hospital, and several others who are, or who have been
infirmary patients with injuries suffered in the sport.
John F. Bovard, dean of the school of physical education, declared
that an investigation would be launched to discover the reason for all
tne injuries.
‘‘We think, however,” he said
last night, ‘‘that most injuries were
suffered in sandlot games where
there was no supervision. The
sport has been played at other col
leges and is being played in high
schools with much enjoyment add
little damage. Of course, if we dis
3over that the game cannot be
played without students being in
jured, it will be dropped from in
tramural activities.”

6Buy Your Own
Pigger’s Guide9
"Say, you fellows could make
life a lot easier for me if you
would just stop bumming me for
cigarettes and borrowing my
pigger's guide. Why don't you
buy your own?”
Tbe above quotation, voiced by
a prominent sophomore, seems
to be the popular sentiment on
the campus. Especially is this so
in the case of the pigger’s guide
or student directory.
Issued nearly a month earlier
than usual, the guide, contain
ing names, addresses, and tele
phone numbers of all students
and faculty numbers, has been
enthusiastically received.
Copies may now be obtained
at the Co-op, as its supply has
been re-stocked, at the Igloo, and
at the ASUO offices. The price
is 25 cents.
Travel Adds to Critical
Attitude, Says Mrs. Allen
One of the greatest values of traveling in foreign lands is the critical
attitude it gives one toward one’s homeland, said Mrs. Eric W. Alien
last night in her informal talk about her experiences in Europe this
summer at the open meeting of Theta Sigma Phi and women students
interested in journalism. She indicated that after a visit to the ole
countries of the world, the United States present unlimited oppor
tunity for critical comparison and contrast.

Shy Man Awaits
Date For Dance;
See Dick Devers
I -
Attention girls!
The date committee for the
j annual law school hop is send
ing out a distress call. It seems
that a certain senior law student
has been unable so far to secure
a date for that epochal event.
This gentleman is recommend
ed very highly by his friends. He
is six feet . tall, weighs 180
pounds, has curly blond hair, and
blue eyes. His only drawback is
that he is slightly shy, but any
girl can overcome this by use of
the right tactics. His fellow stu
dents state that he is a perfect
gentleman. He has taken a three
months’ course in dancing and
is an ardent disciple of Emily
Post. Even the mildest of maid
ens need not feel any hesitancy
in going with him for he is a
past-master in tea-room (not
bar-room) tactics.
Any young lady interested in
showing this young man and her
self a good time is urged to get
in touch with Dick Devers of the
date committee in care of the law
school and ask about X-3.
Hurry, girls, he won’t last long!

50 Jobs Needed
For UOStudents
Saysjanvt Smith
“Fifty odd jobs are urgently
needed for students,” stated Jan
et Smith, employment secretary,
when interviewed Thursday.
Due to the third installment
of fees that are due November
9, Monday, this is a pressing
problem to students working
their way through school.
“Last year, the employment
office succeeded in averaging 11
jobs a day with an average of
$1.50 a ay. This mark has not
been reached this year and the
present situation is the result,”
stated Miss Smith.
In addition to this 12 jobs for
board are wanted by students,
unable to cook, but anxious to
work in other ways.
Many jobs have been secured
and the NYA has affected a
great number but Miss Smith
said, “Our problem is at the
present time to obtain odd jobs
and board jobs for students who
need this work in order to stay
in school.”
! Student Writes
About Alaskan
School Teaching
J. F. Banish, University exten
sion student, has been in Alaska
: for approximately two years, and
; recently wrote a letter describing
I his experiences in teaching school.
“I opened school with an enroll
ment of 35 students and more than >
half cannot speak English. I have
some students who are in the third,
fifth, and eighth grades but these
are half Indian and half white,”
a paragraph from his letter said'.
Supplies and books are difficult
! to send to the school at the Pilot
station on the Yukon, where Mr.
Banish is stationed. In the sum
mer, boats ship them up the river,
but in the winter everything is
shipped in by dog teams which
cannot carry bulky things.
Mr. Banish’s home is in Medford,
and he is now working for his BS
degree. When he has fulfilled his
required hours of teaching in Alas
ka, he plans to come to Oregon
for his degree.

Faculty Found to Be
Human Under Scrutiny
“Dorothy Cox Hesse of Eugene gave the University of Oregon
faculty some of their own medicine, put them under the microscope,
and discovered what a swell bunch they are, what interesting hobbies
they ride,” begins an article in the November issue of the Sunset
magazine entitled "Professors Are Human.”
To prove her contention that professors are human, Mrs. Hesse
describes the 200-foot three-track “Evans made and Evans planned”
railroad which John Stark Evans keeps in his attic to which “he makes
tracks when sweet music sounds sour.”
Dean Hazel P. Schwering's
collection of more than “250 Tom
Thumb animals, birds, people,
dwellings, conveyances and odd bits
of tiny pottery” is brought to light
as well as Professor Frederic S.
Dunn’s collection of stamps. In
his collection "everything from
rare, valuable postage stamps to
wine bottle stamps or even Christ
mas seals are found,” Mrs. Hesse
said. The article continues “that’s
the reason his six loose leaf al
bums are so full of interest and
variety. And that is one of the
reasons he’s so full of interest and
Mention is made of President C.
V. Boyer’s dogs, George Hopkins’
model airplanes, Dean Wayne L.
Morse’s horses, Dean James H. Gil
bert’s ten-mile daily walks, as well
as the cabbages and tomatoes of
