Social Ban in February
From February 20 till March 23,
a little over a month, all social
events were banned on the campus
by Dr. Fred N. Miller, head Uni
versity physician, in a move cal
culated to stop the widespread epi
demic of colds and influenza. Par
ents became frantic in their inquir
ies after the health of their sons
and daughters at the University,
and for a time it was feared clas
ses would cease. The order was re
voked at the beginning of spring
term, much to the relief of campus
TCLACA of National Interest
Hqward Kessler’s "Two Can Live
As Cheaply Association" aroused
interest throughout the nation im
mediately after its proposal Nov
ember 25, undoubtedly receiving
more publicity than any other
event connected with this Univer
sity in 1936.
The 1936 Oregana was selected
as the nation’s best yearbook,
scoring high in every division to
rate above yearbooks of 180 other
universities. The announcement,
coming early the fall term, gave
impetus to the movement for a
superior Oregana in 1937.
Running through the entire year
in the news and editorial columns
of the Emerald was the fight over
optional military drill. That Ore
gon students were much concern
ed about the measure was evi
denced by the heavy balloting in
the Emerald straw vote in Octo
ber. Optional was favored by a
margin of 27 votes.
Tux I.imitation Defeated
The tax limitation measure
would have cut another $1,000,000
from the already distressed state
system of higher education. The
amendment was fought bitterly by
the Emerald, campus leaders, and
friends of higher learning institu
tions throughout the state.
Defeat of the measure on the
ballot last January to make pay
ment of student body fees com
pulsory made prospects of ade
quate fees to support the program
of the ASUO gloomy under the
setup at that time.
The new constitution of the
ASUO provides for a division of
athletic and educational activities,
with a manager for each, and em
phasis on a program of increased
values offered to students.
Athletic Managers Resign
February 26, Hugh Rosson,
graduate manager, and N. Thomas
Stoddard, manager of athletics
and assistant manager of the
ASUO, submitted their resigna
tions, paving the way for the re
organization of the ASUO.
A heavy football schedule for
1936, necessitating more men on
the squad, prompted a proposal
February 21 whereby each frater
nity is to provide room and board
for one athlete.
Fear that Oregon rooters would
not be able to sing ‘‘Mighty Ore
gon" was felt when the Melrose
Brothers, Chicago music publish
ers, bought the copyright. Later
it was learned that the song could
be used, but not for profit.
In an effort to clean up rush
ing of pledges, long a sore spot
among fraternities, the inter-fra
ternity council voted April 29 to
accept the sealed-bid method of
rushing beginning with fall term.
Other Stories Mentioned
But the 12 “bests” selected
above do not tell all the story of
life at Oregon. There were other
phases, mainly athletic and social
diversion, whose current through
the news was strong and steady
thoughout the year.
Webfoot basketeers were big
and colorful, but lacking in exper
ience. They wound up fourth in
the conference, after some terrific
tussles and close scores.
Football prospects for the green
and lemon yellow seemed bright
last fall, but Saturday after Sat
urday, the Webfoots barely failed
to win. Although never losing
heart, Oregon wound up last in the
conference. Brigiht spot of the
season was Del Bjork, captain and
tackle, who received nearly unani
mous selection on the All-Coast
team, and several All-American
Swimming Team Victorious
The swimming team carried off
sports, honors of the year, defeat
ing all oponents and winning the
conference meet and the cham
pionship of the northern division
of the conference. Star splashers
Jim Reed and Jim Hurd were
placed on the All-American swim
Junior Weekend was the leading
social event of the year, ranking
near the top. Paul Pendarvis’ was
the biggest name dance band
brought to the campus.
