The rotund, self-appointed deity, cap tured in a Connecticut basement retreat by negro police following ( a stabbing affray in his New York "Heaven” last Tuesday, brought i cries of "Peace — it’s wonderful” i when freed.

Army Trek Ends Having just completed the long est peace-time motor movement in western army records, 7500 troops of the third division, U. S. Army, set up camp last night at Fort Lewis, Washington, prepared to spend a month in complicated maneuvers. The war-games will feature new, fast army tanks, air forces, and troop training on a large scale ; never before tried in this area. 500,000 truck miles were marred by only one accident, that when Sergeant William Nettles, 39th (Please turn to f>ape two) Courting Nooks Get Picturesque Nomenclatures By BERNADINE BOWMAN | Sororities at the University of Washington, as on most campuses, have a variety of names for “courting corners.’’ The Alpha Gamma Delta ushers her boy friend in to the “Mush room” for a tete-a-tete. The Gamma Phi’s call theirs the "Den of Iniquity” or the “Hitching Par lor.” At the Chi O house, heart interests relax in the “Check Room.” The Alpha Phis call their the “Date Room.” And the girls at the dormitory alternate between "Date Coops” and “Bull Stockade.” i The DG’s say that the architect for their new house made a tragic mistake when he forgot to put doors on their “hot-box.” Not only that, but he almost ruined their connubial chances by arranging a permanent, non-switchable |'ght. Students Get Break The boy can take the girl he meets through the University of California date bureau to see “Boy Meets Girl,” at the El Capitan theater at reduced rates. The managers of the theater are sponsoring a UCLA Date Bureau night and are acting through the escort organization to reduce ticket rates for student play-goers. He's Pretty, Too! What would happen if a brawny football hero was elected beauty queen ? This was the predicament in which Mitzi Greene, scenario frat ernity man and football hero at Miami (Ohio) university found himself recently. When someone entered him in the contest for campus queen, he won it, and to make matters worse, his picture will appear in the university yearbook as there is no rule which says that the queen must be a female! Registration Mystery This true story comes from the University of Kansas. It’s about a fellow who met an attractive girl during the gruelling days of his first registration and enrollment, got rather well acquainted consid ering the circumstances, and for four long years he has seen that girl at enrollment time and never again until the next semester ar rives. He’s beginning to think she just comes down for enrollment to sort of commemorate their first meet ing and then goes back home. Face-Lifting Begins On Old Libe in Time To Get WPA Money Law Tomes Assyred New Quarters as Workmen Descend to Basement and Book Moving Continues Noise of hammer and saw rose from the basement of the old library yesterday to sound the beginning of a WPA project to remodel the historic structure for housing the Oregon law school. Work was started to meet a time qualification of a WPA grant. Part of the basement floor has been torn away, so that con crete piers can be laid today. On these piers, steel work will be erected to reinforce the remodeling work. Work is being super vised by Dr. Will V. Norris, professor of physics. Meanwhile the library moving' continues with a crew of ten men working an eight-hour stertch this week under the direction of Willis Warren, reserve librarian. To date the miscellaneous material from the order department, the duplicate sets, unbound magazines, the U of O collection, the Oregon col lection, all theses, the rare book collection, and the oversized books have been moved. Two Crews to Be Used Beginning Monday two crews will be put on, one working from 3 to 11:30 p. m. and the other from 11:30 to 8 a. m. with with Beverly Coverhill assisting Warren in the supervising. This moving is not be ing conducted on the plan of mov ing most-used books last but rather starting from the top floor of stacks and working down. The material in the basement, however, is nearly all out. Warren stated that next week’s work will go much faster as it consists of "straight stuff" and makes for easy handling. Art and music books will be moved first Monday. Then the rest of the periodicals and the remain der of the botany shelves will take the journey. Some psychology, journalism, and all the religious books will go over with the second group, which also includes those on agriculture, physical education, mathematics, science, philosophy, and ethics. The social science books will go over later in the week, fol lowed by literature, with history books the last to go, due to their position on the lower floors of the tacks. Messenger service will be given every day until next Thursday when “around-the-clock” moving begins. All such service will be dis continued until Monday when the new library will officially open for business. The house librarian heads will celebrate this opening with a campus dance on the ter race in front of the building that night. Education Heads MeetHereToday General College Proposal Topic to Be Discussed; Hunter to Preside The executive council and the interinstitutional deans and direc tors of the Oregon state system of higher education will meet in the faculty room at Friendly hall to day at 3 o'clock to discuss the gen eral college proposal for all state institutions of higher education. The general college proposal would give the student a general course, with no specialization, for the first two years and then allow him to start majoring in the field he chooses. The executive council of the state system consists of the presidents of the University, the state college, and the three normal schools. The interinstitutional deans and direc tors group is made up of the deans, and department heads, and executive secretaries of all the in stitutions. E. B. Lemon, Oregon state reg istrar, and Dean O. F. Stafford of Oregon will give reports. The meeting has been called by Chan cellor Hunter, who will preside. The members will have dinner at the men's dormitory after the meeting. Onthank, Kehrli to Go To Portland Meeting Heman Kehrli, director of the bureau of municipal research, and Karl Onthank, dean of personnel, have been asked to take part in the round table conference on “Merit System in the Welfare Work” at the Oregon council of social work. This will be held in Portland next Friday, April 30. Election System Practical For Student Body Voting9 Kehrli Says in Interview Herman Kehrli, director of the bureau of municipal research, ex pressed his approval yesterday of the new system of preferrential bal loting which will be inaugurated on the campus May 6. “The system of proportional representation is practical for student body elections. It has been adopted in several European countries and it is used by New York city under the new charter drawn up last fall,’’ Godfrey Invites Students to See PhotoBargains Enlarge the photo section of your memory books by buying a few of the several hundred pic tures of campus scenes for sale at George Godfrey’s office, 114 Friendly. These pictures, many of which were used last year by the Oregana, are being quited by the news bureau office at ten and fifteen cents. Recent and old shots of the campus, millrace, student com mittees honoraries outstanding students are included in this group of pictures. An invitation has been extend ed by Mr. Godfrey to all stu dents interested to stop in at his office. No sales pressure will be applied, Mr. Godfrey promises, just super-salesmanship. tne Bureau director commented. Cincinnati Uses System Mr. Kehrli pointed out that in Cincinnati, where the proportional method is used, the mayor is se lected by the council itself. The advantages of a similar procedure being used here, by having the executive council select the presi dent after they have been elected, were suggested by the director, who believes such a system would be a worthy addition to the reforms already affected. Sees Advances Reiterating the approval voiced by proponents of the plan, Mr. Kehrli believes that the new meth od will aid in eliminating two pol itical groups, give opportunity for expression to new campus groups, and would prove to be a progres sive step in general. He warned, however, that it will be necessary that all students un derstand the proportional represen tation system of balloting clearly before it can be successful oper ated.

Elusive Monkey Slaps Reporter But Won’t Talk An interviewee who is too elu sive to get any real information from, and yet who is so pre sumptuous as to slap the re porter in the face -one who won’t talk at all, and who is still friendly enough to chew his interviewer’s fingers—this is a real problem! This lively, elusive, yet friend ly problem is Magi. Magi be longs to a species with a long latin name, but is known to the layman as a monkey. Magi is owned by Chandler Stevens, the magician who enter tained the assembled students in Gerlinger hall winter term. Mr. Stevens solved the problem of interviewing the impossible by telling the interesting life of his newest acquisition. He formerly belonged to an other magician, Virgil the Great, for whom Stevens used to work. He rode to Eugene from his home in Olympia, Washington, by airplane. Magi is 2 years old. He is now residing in the basement of the SAE house at night, and suns himself on the lawn or at the tennis court by day. His owner ' reports that he eats any food that we would consider edible, and W'hen he gets hungry, par takes of grass or anything handy. As soon a,s Magi is well train ed, he will be employed as a specialist in a disappearing mon key act that is now being pre pared by his magician-owner.

Boyer swings his bats and takes a toe-hold. The president will be on the mound, however, when the ceremonial opening of the 1987 northwest conference season is brought to a close this afternoon. He will toss the first hall over the plate to batsman-Chancellor Frederick >1. Hunter and OSC’s President Peavy will be l>ehind the mask. Visiting Fraulein Lauds Spirit of Oregon Campus Fraulein Grete Sumpf of Germany, who has been making an exten sive visit in the United States and for the past few days has been the guest of the campus YWCA, said she was particularly impressed with the spirit of spontaneity, enthusiasm and independence found in the students on this campus.

Dr. DeBarr to Speak To Fraternity Council The inter-fraternity council will meet for dinner at 6 o’clock April j 27 at the Phi Delt house, and will discuss rushing rules. Dr. De Barr of Eugene, who has been affiliated with* the Phi Delta Theta frater nity for 67 years, will be the prin cipal speaker at the meeting. a new world, free from the eco nomic and political conflicts of to day. This sense of hope and ambi tion found in the students is ex pressed in their walk, speech and dress and she felt that such a gath ering as the war protest was the best example. The feeling she found here, she thinks, is closely allied with the country itself, which she said im pressed her as being new. The only factor which is univer sal in the United Slates, but more prominent in the east than in any western college, is that the stu dents are almost slaves to the dic tates of the fashion and cosmetic leaders, she felt. In that the uni formity of make-up on women was a slight detraction from the de velopment of the individuals, she felt that Oregon showed a little of this, but that German universities showed much less.
