‘The Woman I Love’
Notified of the removal of the
last legal barrier to his marriage
to Mrs. Wallis Warfield Simpson,
“the woman I love,” the Duke of
Windsor last night sped to Monts,
France, for his first visit in 22
weeks with the dark-eyed, Ameri
can-born woman.
The Duke, tanned, smiling, and
happy, a far different man than
the voluntary exile who came to
Austria over five months ago, was
full of enthusiasm at the mention
of Mrs. Simpson's London-granted
divorce decree yesterday.
Show Goes On
Most notable in a new eruption
of labor disputes which has en
compassed bakers, dairy and refin
ery workers, is the strike of 11
unions of the Federated Motion
Picture Crafts, which yesterday is
reported to have included over 6,
000 workers.
While production of motion pic
tures has not as yet been effected,
much importance is placed on the
decision of Screen Actor’s Guild as
to whether it should join the strike
or not. The decision will probably
be rendered Sunday.

Darkness Envelopes New
Libe on Debut; Rain Chases
Stomp to McArthur Court
While 200 couples danced to the music of Gus Meyer’s orchestra at
the library dance in the Igloo, other students and townspeople viewed
for the first time the interior of the newly-completed structure.
Fifteen student guides met visitors at the door and conducted them
through the decorative wrought-iron gates down the impressive air con
ditioned halls of black and w-hite Italian marble, past the main stack
rooms already filled with books, into the maze of smaller rooms in the
rear of the building'.
Soft light from the indirect sys
tem suddenly became black as a
fuse burned out, and the crowds
were stopped. A few murmurs and
nervous titters were cut short as
assistants rushed to the rescue.
Lights Out
As the lights again flooded the
building the tour continued. On the
first’ floor, the visitors were shown
the highly-publicized, nearly-com
pleted browsing room, the reserve
leading room, and myriads of small
individual study rooms.
Visitors were led to the third
floor, with its upper division read
ing room and conference rooms.
A book lift, electrically run,
carrying books to the desired floor,
operated smoothly. Everything was
ready for the work to begin next
day when students began their
studies in the new building.
Convenient Terrace
Outside, terraces, balconies, flat
topped roofs with ample space for
sun bathing or that quick cigarette
between studies attracted comment
from the visitors.
Storm clouds drove dancers from
the terrace into McArthur court.
The house librarians entertained
with a ‘'Terrace Stomp”— a brand
new feature, in keeping with the
new building.

Political Statements
In the past it has been the policy of the Emerald to extend the
use of its columns to the candidates for office of ASUO president.
Because of the many in the field this year, all the candidates are
invited to use the Emerald to outline their ideas and policies. These
statements should not be more than 150 words long and should be
delivered at the Emerald before 8 o’clock tonight, as the paper will
print no matter on politics on Thursday morning, in accordance with
long established custom. They will be printed in alphabetical order.
Each candidate should compose or help to compose his own

The athletic year 193G-37 will be
one of the best financially in the

University, yesterday, when he an
nounced that the athletic depart
ment will be out of the red by
July 1.
The department was able to pay
off $13,000 at the end of the 1937
basketball season, announced Cor
nell. The educational activities de
partment received $8,000 of this
and the other $5,000 went to the
alumni holding corporation.
Reduced athletic budgets are the
reason for this bright outlook, ac
cording to Cornell, and the depart

in the treasury.

It. F. Irvine’s Successor
Has Fine Business ami
Legislative Records
Upon the heels of the resign
ation of B. F. Irvine, editor of the
Oregon Journal in Portland, Gov
ernor Martin announced the ap
pointment of State Senator Walter
E. Pearson as his successor on the
state board of higher education.
Mr. Irvine has continuously ser
ved as a member of the governing
boards of the state institutions of
higher learning in Oregon for the
past 39 years. For 31 years he has
been a member of the board of re
! gents of Oregon State college and
he has spent eight years as a mem
ber of the present board. Although
his term ended March 2, he con
sented to serve until May 1, but
declined reappointment.
Senator Pearson came to Port
land in 1908 from Virginia. He was
engaged in the insurance business,
and was elected state senator in
1934, representing Clackamas, Col
umbia and Multnomah counties.
The appointment will necessitate
his resignation from the senate.
In the announcement, Governor
Martin said, in part:
“Mr. Irvine’s record of service to
higher education in Oregon is with

Dalton, Fori Withdraw,
Throw House Support
To Benson; Coalition
Fears Dorm Power
Trade for Coed Vote
\\ omen’s Group Organizes
To Secure ASCO Spots;
Harking Is Divided
Frightened by the specter of an
apparently solid independent vote
backing Barney Hall for ASUO
president, coalition politicians
threw their “unite the campus"
idealism into the discard and
adopted a staggering weekend pro
gram of vote-trading in an effort
to insure the election of Noel Ben
son, fraternity candidate.
Political action formed along
two closely allied moves: /witli
drawal of Bill Dalton and Sam
Fort from the ASUO race to throw
their backing behind Benson, and
the alignment of sorority house
second choice votes to support
Ideal floes Out
When the coalition group organ
ized it held up as its cardinal mo
tive “selection of the most able
men to lead in uniting the cam
pus." Candidates of the group
were to be selected by representa
tives of all living organizations. At
a meeting of the group last Wed
nesday night, Barney Hall was
selected to run for the executive
council by a vote of 34, Noel Ben
son received 23 votes.
Independent Goes Out
This was the first indication fra
ternity politicians had to show
the support the non-fraternity man '
had. Two days later they moved
to insure the election of a frater
nity candidate.
Bill Dalton and Sam Fort, also
selected by the group, announced
their withdrawal from the race last
night. House backing of both men
was thrown behind Benson. In re
turn for their withdrawal, consid
eration for the two men will be
given when the coalition group
picks the two men they will push
for senior class offices.
Trade Votes
To gain all possible support,
coalition politicians offered to
throw theii* second and third
choices over to the two women’s
candidates in return for the sec
ond choice vote of the women for
Noel Benson.
In women's houses, the same sit
uation was taking place. Women
have come to realize they must
organize to insure the election of
two women in view of strong men’s
organizations. They voted to throw
their backing behind Frances
Schaupp and Gladys Battleson to
overcome the strength of the men’s
first choice votes.
Last night Elizabeth Turner. PI
Phi candidate who had withdrawn
in favor of the other two, again
appeared in the race to complicate
the situation.
