Dec. 11 Ends Term
Housing Committee's
'Back to House'Move
Meets Vacancy Lack
Underclass Pledges. "Living Out" Ordered
To Houses, Dormitory; Exceptions Made
Of Students With Limited Finances
Wholesale “moving in" of pledges living outside of their living
organizations was viewed as a questionable probability last night as
a survey of the six halls in the men’s dormitory revealed that only an
approximate number of 17 vacancies will be open next term in the
whole building. Women are not being affected one way or another.
This problem was incurred late last week when the housing com
mutee announced that underclass
pledges “living out” must be
moved into their houses or into the
dormitory. Students with limited
finances and those whose families
live in Eugene were excepted.
“Hitch” Seen
A possible “hitch” in the pro
ceedings was seen last night with
the discovery that the number of
pledges may exceed the number of
accommodations open in Straub
Memorial. Most of the houses af
fected are already obviously over
One solution has been suggested
by a few houses who would mave
upperclassmen out and take the
pledges in. They believe that if
the house is overcrowded it would
be easier for old members to live
out than it is for freshmen.
Dean Karl W. Onthank, chair
man of the housing committee, had
no definite statement to make last
night. He did say that the com
mittee would have to take these
obstacles into consideration, and
if necessary allow for flexibility in
any ruling.
Students Wary
Of Xmas Gifts
To Big Moment
Coeds and male students at the
University of Washington aired
their views today on costly Christ
mas gifts for the heart-throb!
“Any boy who gives a gift cost
ing more than five dollars to any
girl is a chump if there are no
more' strings attached to it than
those on the wrapper—” seemed to
be the general opinion on the cam
pus towards the “Peace on Earth”
“Some even consider it a ‘gift’ if
you can give a gift,” retorted one
coed. Other students seem to be
lieve in “Don’t Write, Telegraph,”
system, or in the choosing of one
of Western Union's season’s greet
ings listed on a form sheet.
A psychology professor retaliat
ed with “I’m opposed to charity."
“Will it be apreciated?” seems
to be the question hovering in the
mental area of cautious collegian
shoppers this year and they gaze
in the brightly lighted windows
and remember that it is better to
give than to receive, and then
again, they wonder.
'Tramp Haven'
The softest-hearted group of col
lege boys is found on the Yale cam
pus. So free are these boys with
their dad’s money that the bums
of the city call it “Tramp Haven.”
As a result of the college boys
taking care of the bums, the city
has become a mecca for panhandl
ers who are able to care for them
selves in style. It is reported that
some of these panhandlers live at
the best hotels and come and go in
town cars with chauffeurs.
Shy? Ask Dad!
Parents of children too shy to
make their own dates should ar
range a few for the children them
selves, the Rev. Roy Burkhart of
Columbus, Ohio recommended to
day at Philadelphia.
“After that," he said, “watch
their dust.”
“If a girl doesn’t get a date she
becomes isolated and develops an
inferiority complex,” Rev. Burk
hart told mothers at the National
Teaching mission. “Many boys are
too shy to make dates.”
Deferred Pledging
Question Deferred
Finances Are Quizzed
By Representatives
Of Living Groups
Action on the deferred pledging
question was deferred Tuesday
night when a discussion of the
financial bearing it would have on
living organizations was brought
before the house managers’ council
“We are going to let it ride for
a while to see the position the in
terfraternity council will take on
it,” said Bob Goodfellow, president
of the manager group. The finan
cial end of the question being the
foremost cause for opposition to
it, the council will have plenty to
say on the matter later, he indi
Acceptance of a special commit
tee report urging the change by
the Oregon Dad’s organization at
their business meeting last Satur
day brought forth the discussion.
A plan to investigate the possi
bility of buying for the houses in
large quantities was brought for
ward by C. L. Kelly, professor of
business administration, at the
managers’ meeting. It would bring
about some form of modified co
operative buying from Eugene
merchants to cut down costs on
some articles. A committee headed
by Bill Jones was named by Good
fellow to work on the proposed
Lack of Applicants
For Scholarships
Scholarships will go begging this
winter term, if the number of ap
plicants for the Panhellenic coun
cil’s six new $30 scholarships is
any indication.
Although the announcement ap
peared almost a week ago the of
fice of the dean of women reported
only five applications received to
date for the scholarships, which
will be given at the beginning of
winter term.
The scholarships are to be
awarded to six University women
picked by the Panhellenic jury. The
only requirement is that interested
women apply at the dean of wo
men’s office.
Any girl is eligible.

By Sigma Delta Chi
E. P. Hoyt Is Speaker,
Bill Pease Reports
On Convention
Sigma Delta Chi, men's national
journalistic fraternity, initiated
O. L. Price, president and general
manager of The Oregonian, into
membership Monday evening in a
ceremony held in Gerlinger hall.
At the dinner meeting following
the initiation Mr. Price and E.
Palmer Hoyt, managing editor of
The Oregonian, addressed the so
ciety on newspaper problems of
the present day. Mr. Hoyt, a mem
ber of the campus chapter, was
recently elected a national coun
cilor at the national convention in
Lawrence, Kansas.
Bill Pease, student delegate to
the convention, gave a report on
the proceedings and business con
ducted there.
Mr. Price was graduated from
the Oregon law school in 1900 and
practiced in Portland for many
years before becoming head of the
paper in 1927. He is a chairman
of the board of the Portland Trust
and Savings bank.
New Regulations for Coeds
To Come Up for Adoption
At House Heads’ Meeting
A condensed set of regulations to govern activities of University
women, re-worded but without any major change from the old set-up,
will be sent up from the discipline committee of heads of houses for
adoption by the entire group at a meeting in Hendricks hall this
afternoon, it was revealed yesterday.
In almost every case the new rules have been based along former
regulations, although many formerly ambiguous rules, and rules which
cover only a small part of coed
life have been abolished, the new
rules as prepared by the discipline
committee show.
Seek Local Autonomy
Although they have not made
any changes in the present coed
academic or social standards, the
committee has sought to obtain
“local autonomy’’ — house super
vision of individual problems. No
mention of the power to "govern
themselves” has been awarded to
the houses in the revised regula
tions, in spite of the belief of many
house heads that a change in the
old regulations would include pro
vision for it.
Closing hours for women’s living
organizations tvill remain the same,
according to the committee’s re
drafted rules. No recommendations
or changes are made in the present
grade point average which must be
maintained to keep off probation.
Some Rules Abolished
Rules regarding delivery of food,
correct apparel, and “good taste"
in a variety of social spheres were
Stricken from the committee’s
The rules as drawn up by the
discipline committee for action by
the heads of houses reduced the
former ten pages of regulations

Sucks to Play
UCLA Bruins
On Saturday
Hobson Sends Team
Through Duckling
Tilt in Preparation
For Cal Contest
With the first two games of the
season safely tucked away in the
victory column, the Oregon varsity
hoop crew is drilling for UCLA’s
barn-storming Bruins who will play
here Saturday at 7:30.
Not at all satisfied with the
showing.of the team in the 68 to 24
victory over Portland university,
and the 56-to-37 win over Mult
nomah club, Coach Hobson has
been sending his squad through
vigorous practice and scrimmage
sessions to get them in better con
dition for the Bruin game.
Lineup Named
The starting lineup for the
UCLA game will again send the
regular combination of Silver
Gale, Wintermute, Anet, and Jo
hansen into the fray for the Web
foots, he announced.
Several injuries have marred the
work of the team. Bobby Anet has
a slightly strained leg, Matt Pava
lunas suffered a bad "charlie
horse” in practice, and Bob Hardy
is hampered with a smashed fin
ger. Neither Anet's or Pavalunas'
injuries are serious, and will not
keep them from the game Satur
day. Hardy was forced to have the
finger put in a cast, but will un
doubtedly see action Saturday.
Bruins Pack Strength
Although bemoaning the loss oi
i four regulars from last year’s
squad by graduation, the UCLA
Bruins have shown plenty of pow
er in pre-season games thus fat
played. The team will be composed
mostly of sophomores whom Coach
Caddy Works is trying to break in
before the start of the conference
I season.
All students with ASUO cards
will be admitted to the game, pric
es for others will be 55 cents and
for adults and 25 cents for high
school children.
Southern Newsman
To Be Contest Judge
Sigma Delta Chi, journalism
honorary, recently announced that
Bruce McCoy, manager of the
Louisiana State Press association
and president of the Newspapei
Managers' association, will act as
judge and critic for the wesklj
newspaper contest which will be
held in connection with the state
press convention here January 20
21, and 22.
The contest which he will judge
is conducted annually by Sigma
Delta Chi. Two cups are awarded
one for the best weekly newspapei
in the state, and one for the best
in a town of less than 1,000 popu
Mr. McCoy will judge and write
criticisms of weekly newspapers
competing for the Sigma Delta Ch
and Ha) E. Hoss cups. The Hal E
Hoss cup will be presented to the
weekly displaying the best speci
men from papers with a thousanc
or less circulation. The Sigms
Delta Chi cup will be presented as
a sweepstake prize for the best
Oregon weekly.
Bill Pease, editor of Old Oregon

tact manager of that publication

ing on its study of needs and con
ditions for broadcasting from the
campus, with a possibility of a rec
ommendation to the board for con
A five hour broadcasting week
will probably be recommended, if
the board is asked for funds to ex
tend the service after the holidays,
according to Dr. Clark. This would
mean an hour of broadcasting each
school day from this campus. The
five-hour week would cost consid
erably less than the full-time facil
ities which were at first proposed.
Both Dr. Clark and Hoy Vern
strom, student program director,
report widespread response to the
campus radio presentations, with
telephone and telegraph messages
coming from many parts of the
state commenting on the broad
casts. “We feel that our tests have
been successful," said Dr. Clark.
Special recommendations for the
continuance of the service will be
presented to the board by the Uni
versity of Oregon mothers organi
zation as well as the Oregon Dads,
who last week voted to back cam
pus broadcasting.
Ringing down the curtain on the
present setup, Friday n i g h t’s
broadcast will be thrown open to
the public, for the first time in the
series. The entire program will be
presented from the music audito
rium, and will include the Univer
sity band and the largest array of
performers ever to appear on one
1 University broadcast from this
campus. Spectators should be pres
ent before the beginning of the
broadcast, which is at 7:30.
Kappa Gamma Team

cessful season in women’s intra
mural volleyball, with Kappa Kap
pa Gamma winners of the cup as

Kappa Kappa Gamma won four
games in the tournament, the
semi-finals, and the finals, taking
the championship with a total of
six games won and none lost. Hen
dricks hall won four games, but

of the infirmary staff yesterday.
Dr. Miller said that because of
the tremendous expense involved
in the operation of the hospital fa

the vacation problem. Cases of
minor colds and the like will be

Phi Delts Lead Team
Donut Competition
Although they failed to retain
either the A or B league volleyball
titles this year, the boys from Phi
Delta Theta managed to annex
enough points in the fall.season to
place them eight points ahead of
their annual rivals, the ATOs, with
a total of 381.
By winning the tennis champion
ship and placing high in all the in
tramural tournaments, the Phi
Delt teams have been able to
amass their sizeable total.
Close upon the heels of the Phi
Delts are the ATOs with 373 coun
ters, nearly 100 points ahead of
the next team in line. The hotel
men have practically duplicated
the feats of the Phi Delt teams,
having won only the B league vol
leyball championship during the
term. They also placed consistent
ly high in all the tourneys.
Sig Kps WW Volley
By virtue of winning the A
league volleyball championship,
the Sig Eps annexed 100 points to
place them in third place with a
total of 283. They were closely fol
lowed by the Betas ai^d Theta
Chis who ended the term with 266
and 251 respectively.
From fifth position to the cellar,
the standings dropped down with
regularity, the separating margins
never exceeding 15 points. Sigma
Alpha Epsilon, fall term cham
pions last year, failed to make a
showing this season, landing in.
18th position with a total of 163.
Have Golf, Tennis
This year, the fall term sports
mcluded golf, tennis, volleyball, and
the cross-country run.
Donut touch football, -which
proved so popular last year, was
dropped from the schedule because
of the over-crowded program, and
a few injuries sustained by partic
ipants last fall.
Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Delta
Theta captured the golf and ten
nis championships, respectively, to
assume an early lead in the race
and the Yeomen won the annual
cross country run. The deciding
points were made or lost in the
hotly contested volleyball tourna
ment where the defending cham
pions in both brackets, the Phi
Delts, were dethroned, the Sig
Eps gaining the A league crown
and the ATOs winning the minor
league title.
