Trucking Fad
Hits Campus;
Routines Vary
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.
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
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 ^
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.

Emerald of Air
To Change Hour
The air waves will be carrying a
bigger and better “Emerald on the
Air” program this year, according
to Don Kennedy, program head. A
15 minute or half-hour evening
presentation over a mutual sys
tem is the goal for this year.
A tentative feature, scheduled
for winter quarter, is a radio con
test in which fraternities and so
■ rorities will take an active part.
Work on programs will begin as
soon as arrangements are made
with the broadcasting company. It
is hoped that a change from the
! old afternoon hour to an evening
hour will induce every student to
listen to what is really his own

Rain Moves Cal Gal to
Curse, Poet to Verse
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

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.”

spent many years at Oregon. We

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
A previous estimate that 1200
new students would register was
found correct by the official rec

Emerald workers and members
of the journalism staff in the
announcement of the resigna

janitor of the journalism build

Mr. Clock, who is retiring to

‘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

knowledge of tone relations so
