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 4U/..I 4- r-vrvoorioc* olnco norrlo i_ even though the University desig nates them members of the class 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 night’s freshman election the question of voting eligibility will be referred to the judiciary com mittee otf the ASUO. The points which will lie referred to the judiciary committee will be item ized in tomorrow’s paper. BARNEY HALE, ASUO President tion to the University judiciary committee, with a recommendation that a frosh constitution be adopt- j ed including a provision stating all | freshmen with or without cards be ; given voting privileges. Chances are the reform in the : old set-up will shake the founda tions of the soph, junior and senior organizations also, unless the al ready adopted constitutions of those classes prove to be an effec- ) tive bulwark against the reform move. Nominations preceding the elec tion were as anticipated with the i SAE - Sigma Nu - Kappa Sig bloc : nominating Payne, Alice Lyle, Ann Stevenson and Ken Erickson, and the Phi Delt-ATO bloc selecting Bob Hendersliott, Barbara Ben ham, Ann Waha, and Lloyd Sulli van. Results came as predicted by political dopesters, the lowest lead of Payne’s ticket being held by Payne himself, 180-136, with Hen dershott trailing by 44 votes.

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 dent. 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 Be Honored at Tea Sadie Orr Dunbar, uncontested candidate for the president of the Federated Women’s Clubs of Amer ica, will be guest of honor at a tea given by Dean Schwering, Mrs. Effie Knapp, and Mrs. J.

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.

She Left the Hills— Fate Tough on Daisy By MORITZ THOMSEN 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 hnlv ripnth hrnnprht hnnnlness. 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. Daisy Eyes Dress 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 dows, her eyes lit up as a smart fur trimmed model met her ner vous stare.
