"Tiger" Payne Ticket Makes Clean Sweep of
Class Posts; Protestors Question Need of
Cards for Voting
Two major political blocs formed on old-standard lines in
the frosh class last night at the nominating-election assembly
and Gleason “Tiger” Payne’s ticket swept the ballot. The even
ing’s real fireworks, however, came from a group of protestors
independent of both blocs.
The protest centered around the fact that students were
refused admittance to the assembly and the right to vote because

of 1941.
Methods Protested
Approximately 300 frosh seem
ingly “bought” the right to vote
against 600 who did not. Protestors
asked ASUO president Hall the
question: “Under what power do
you collect fees and deny us the
right to vote, as classes are no
longer connected with the ASUO
due to a revised associated stu
dent body constitution, and as the
frosh have no constitution?”
The sophomore and junior class
es incorporated themselves writh
constitutions last spring, but fresh
men so far have no constitution.
A motion was made at the assem
bly to appoint a constitutional
committee, but was tabled until a
class president could be elected.
Result to Be Examined
Rumors last night were that
Barney Hall would take the ques
In view of the protest of last

Law School's New
HomeTakes Shape
Old Libe to Be Redone
In Time for Next
Year's Classes
The "old libe” building, for some
time in the process of remodeling,
is beginning to take definite form
as the future home of the Univer
sity law school.
Present plans call for remodeling
from top to bottom, according to
Will V. Morris, professor of
physics, in charge of the project. I
The finished building will con
tain several new classrooms and
offices, administrative offices for
the law school, and other features,
including a typewriter room, two
reading rooms with their adjacent
stacks, and a lecture room seating
300 persons.
In addition the building will have ,
a club room on the first floor and
will house the bureau of municipal i
research and the offices of the |
law review.
Even the front steps are being
altered, several near the top being
cut out. The front door is being
lowered and narrowed slightly, and
the whole system of interior stair
ways is being revised. The newest
kind of plumbing will be installed
The work is being handled by j
WPA labor, the completed pro
ject being expected to cost ap-1
proximately $50,000. Not all of
the needed funds have as yet been
allocated but completion is expect
ed “some time in 1938” says Pro- j
fessor Norris.

Bird Imitator
Receives Trip
To New York
Shades of Horatio Alger and
the story of Cinderella!
The glittering hand of fame in
the shape of an offer for an ap
pearance on a nation-wide radio
broadcast has apparently reached
for Howard Lee, senior at the Uni
versity and prominent indepen
Fame’s hand is backed up not,
only by glitter but by a very busi
ness-like letter which Howard re
ceived from J. S. Simpson, mana
ger-secretary for Robert Ripley of
Believe It or Not fame. He offers,
among other things, a free trip to
New York—at Mr. Lee’s conven
ience—and all expenses connected
with that trip and his stay in
New York.
It all came about* because Lee
has developed the unique ability to
successfully imitate the call of 36
animals, as well as a number of
birds, without using artificial aids.
Lee learned his difficult art
through long practice and constant
imitation of sounds which he heard.
He has appeared as an amateur
over several radio stations.
If arrangements can be made,
Lee intends to take the trip to New
York during the Christmas vaca
tion or sometime during January
or February.
Sadie Dunbar Will

Welcome, Governor
rJX)DAY Oregon puts on its best dress and welcomes Gov
ernor Charles II. Martin, the state’s chief executive, to
its campus.
The governor, an army officer holding the rank of gen
eral, will be escorted to the campus by the ROTC. Oregon’s
band will blare its welcome and students and University
officials will extend official greetings.
'RESIDENT C. Valentine Boyer has requested that classes
be dismissed before the usual hour to enable the students
to file to seats in Gerlinger hall before the governor begins
his address. The assembly, more than any other phase of
the visit, will give Governor Martin a chance to look the
student body over.
The welcoming committee’s value lies in the fact that it
complies with convention. The impression it will make on
thd governor is necessarily a limited one because of the
formal nature of the group.
The University and its student body will speak for itself.
Welcome to the campus, Governor Martin!
'Roadside'Will Be
First Guild Play
American Comedy
By Young Author Is
Being Cast Now
“Roadside,” a rough and ready
comedy of southwestern America
by Lynn Riggs will be the first
Guild hall production this year.
Dates for the show have been set
for Friday and Saturday, Novem
ber 3 and 4.
Mrs. Ottilie Turnbull Seybolt,
director, says casting will be com
pleted this week.
The play tells a story of a “big,
hulky, curly-headed ring-tail-toot
er” named Texas and the buxum,
black-eyed Hannie Rader who is
more than a match for him.
Lynn Riggs is one of the most
promising of the young American
playwrights. His first professional
production, “Green Grow the Li
lacs,” was produced with resound
ing acclaim by the New York Thea
tre Guild.
.“Roadside” is full of a lusty,
earthy humor. Its characters are
constantly embroiled in a rough
and tumble battle of wits.
The University theater is to de
vote at least half of this year’s
productions to plays dealing with
the American scene. “Roadside”
introduces this policy.

Garretson, a senior, attracted a
great deal of favorable comment
last year when he featured the
Rhapsody in a concert on the cam
pus. Since then he has played it—a
combination of modern rhythm -
at numerous club functions, both
local and in other cities.

She Left the Hills—
Fate Tough on Daisy
Fate draws two souls together in a love as strong as the will to
live, and then fate again steps in and kills that love with insignifcant
little events or things that otherwise are harmless. Fate is essentially
tragic for fate runs through the life of every man and life is tragedy.
Listen, then, to the poor tale of Daisy Mae and Junior. They loved,
were honest with each other and discreet, but fate stepped in and

When Daisy May left Hokum
Hill her pappy spoke the sageness
of the hills into her innocent ears,
and as she stood on Main street
trying to find a dress that would
see her through the term at school,
the voice of the old man came
creeping into the consciousness of
her brain. “Wal, datter, be keer
ful of the city snakes, be sure to
brush your teeth, and remember
this money has to see you through
the year.” He gave her twelve
dollars, and ashamed to let her
hear the harsh grey sobs that
shook his frame, he left her on the
highway where she bummed her
way to Eugene.

It was all so strange, standing
there in front of the dress store
trying to find a ninety-eight cent
dress, but as she searched the win

terror struck her heart as the sales
woman in haughty disdain caught
