Trucking Fad Hits Campus; Routines Vary By ALYCE ROGERS It's in!! The “trucking” craze is spreading rapidly throughout the nation’s educational institutions. The "Big Apple” is being cut in Kansas, Illinois, California, not to mention Oregon, along with num erous other campuses. “Suzy Q,” “pecking,” “shagging,” and “shin ning” routines are being patiently practiced everywhere. Solo talent is rewarded highly where “swing” contests are being held. Weekly trucking classes are held just before closing hours by the Chi Omegas on their front lawn at the Univer sity of Kansas. Sham pain vs. Moonshine The University of West Virginia humor magazine has been given a new name. Formerly known as the “Shampain,” the magazine now f . basks under “Moonshine.” ■ \ “ ‘Moonshine’ seems to be a more typical mountaineer expression than ‘Shampain,’ and anyway the staff voted upon it,” explained the student editor. 4 Note Sale Brings Battlt Open antagonism between £ member of the University of Cali fomia at Los Angeles faculty anc students selling "flybate notes’ flared on the California campus re cently, when one professor an nounced, “There will be no note; taken in my class for sale to stu dents.” The manager of the note-sellinj organization replied: “Notes on al current lectures will continue to b sold as advertised.” Legality of the notes was uphel by a professor of law, who said tha if the person taking notes to sell t students does not copy the lectur verbatim and does not use th terminology- of the lecturers, th plan is legitimate. Special Meeting Is Called For Choice Of Successor To Dr.BoyerAs President President’s Vacancy Will Be Filled by Out-of-State Man, Campus Rumors Indicate ^ By BILL PENGRA Announcement was made last night by Frederick Hunter, chan cellor, of a special meeting of the state board of higher education, on October 11, to consider the selection of a successor for Dr. C. Valen tine Boyer, who resigned last summer as president of the University. The meeting, called by Willard L. Marks, Albany, president of the board, will be held in Portland to choose a new president from a list of names submitted by the chan cellor, who has worked with the faculty administrative council. No Names Given Mr. Hunter’s report will include results of a three months' study of ■ possible material from leading edu cation positions throughout the na tion. No announcement of any of the candidates has been made, but ’ it was believed that the list of pos- f sibilities has been narrowed down to three or four men. Dr. C. T. Rayner, professor of economics at the University of Michigan; David Faville, former University professor; Dr. Homer Dodge, dean of the graduate school at the University of Oklahoma, and one or two others. Dean Wayne L. Morse of the law school, said last night he had not withdrawn. He declared that he had never been a candidate. He was believed, however, to be a strong contender. Decision Soon Although the position may not be filled at the meeting, it is thought that the board will try hard to fill it, as Dr. Boyer’s resig nation stated that he would like to retire as soon after September 30 as possible. Dr. Boyer stated last night that he will retire at any time after the new man has been chosen, but that he expects to have to remain nearly until the end of the term. He said it is too much to expect his successor to finish his/ affairs and take over the post very soon after being chosen.

A tentative feature, scheduled for winter quarter, is a radio con test in which fraternities and so ■ rorities will take an active part.

Rain Moves Cal Gal to Curse, Poet to Verse By MORITZ THOMSEN With the new change in weather conditions, it seemed rather fitting that a few new comers to the campus this fall be interviewed on their impressions. Miss Chaltek, president of the local poetry so ciety, had quite a few impressions. ‘‘The rain, the rain,” she said, ‘‘the beautiful rain. It drips anc it drops from the tragic fall blossoms, and it foretells the coming Cleanness oi me eaim. ucau tiful rain.” Her companion. Miss Folsop, was less articulate. “The rain, the rain, it pours and it pours and it pours.” , At this time your reporter left in search of new impressions. Mike Kopolotz, potential fullback ' on the first-year team, said, “Huh, . rain? What rain? Is it rainin’?” Miss Sniffle, a Berkeley, Cali , fomia, girl, became quite angry . “Listen, wise guy, this is the lousi est weather I've ever seen. I car r tell you we don’t have this kind ol 1 weather where I come from.” > There was one junior who has spent many years at Oregon. We 1 never did get his name, for as t soon as the rain was mentioned, i 3 frenzied look came into his eyes e and he ran screaming into the i bushes next to Chancellor Hunter’s e home.

Registration Record Still Is Possibility Figures Wednesday Top 1936 Mark by 18: 200 More Expected: Males Increase Fall term registration topped last year's figures by the third day of classes, according to Clifford L. Constance, assistant registrar. Totals up to Wednesday night were 2922, as compared to the 2904 registered in the fall of 1936. As approximately two hundred more are expected to register be fore the end of the term, chances are strong that the term total will reach a new peak in the Univer sity history. The previous record is 3095, set in the fall of 1930. Wednesday night's figure is 200 ahead of the same day last fall. The schools of physical educa tion and business administration have shown increases of around 25 per cent, while several depart ments have decreased in size. A small decrease in women and an increase in men registering was seen. Both the freshman and soph omore classes numbered well over 1,000. A previous estimate that 1200 new students would register was found correct by the official rec ords.

B. Clock, janitor of the journalism build ing, after fifteen years of ac tive service. Mr. Clock, who is retiring to his fa.rm near Creswell, handed his resignation to A. H.

Mr. Wechsler is an old campus worker and will not be entirely new to his sur roundings. ‘Musi-Quest’ Course Popular at Oregon When George Hopkins, professor of piano at the University of Oregon, started his group piano classes for business men, he designed it for persons who had no opportunity to study music and who wished a pleasant diversion to take their minds from the tensions of the working days. . That is why he entitled his course "Musiquest, Pleasure Cruising on the Piano Keyboard.” The idea was immediately seized upon by business men who, with no knowledge whatsoever of mu sic, attended the classes. In a remarkably short time many of them learned to play the piano without having to read notes. The course was so popular that Mr. Hopkins has found if neces sary to open a second group for men and a women's group. These, he has decided, will not be limited to business men and housewives, but may also include University students, as long as there are va cancies in the class. Mr. Hopkins, who has his course material ready for publication, ex plained that the idea is based on the premise that children talk be fore they read. “It is an approach 1 to giving beginners a working knowledge of tone relations so Enrollment Exhausts Supply Military Suits No more military suits. Because of the large enrollment, all available suits have beeri issued, and the new ones which were ordered will not be here until January. Military classes include more than 700, which is a greater increase than was expected. they can play for their own pleas ure,” he added. Students who are interested in taking the class for a nominal fee are advised to see Mr. Hopkins or Ralph Wilson of the Wilson Music house. They are also invited to at tend a session of the class held Monday nights in the Wilson music house.
