Supreme Court
To Rule College
Football Iss u e
The U. S. supreme court, top ju
dicial arbiter of differences of
opinion, has been called upon to
rule as to whether or not inter
collegiate football is an education
al activity.
Solicitor General Robert H.
Jackson has asked the court to
rule that the University of Geor
gia and Georgia School of Tech
nology must pay taxes on football
game admissions—a .ruling that
would affect gate receipts at sta
dia throughout the United States.
Government lawyers hold that
“at neither school is participation
in football a prerequisite to grad
uation, and no credit is given
therefore toward a degree.”
Lawyers for the colleges main
tain that in staging the games
their clients were “engaged in the
performance of an essential gov
ernmental function.

Tubing Could Go
To Three Trees
Inn Four Times
If all the glass tubing that is
used by the chemistry depart
ment in one year were placed
end to end, it would reach out
to the Three Trees Inn and back
about four times, according to
, figures released by Nils Carlsen,
who has been in charge of the
chemistry supply room for the
past 21 years.
Each year the department uses
approximately 200 pounds of the
tubing, which comes in five-foot
lengths, in sizes ranging from
1/16 of an inch to 2X2 inches in
diameter. The tubing is heated
over a glas flame until it be
comes soft and pliable, and it can
then be bent into any desired
Observers in Oregon’s diminu
tive science department wonder
what better use could be made
for the approximately six miles
of tubing than to run it out to
the “Trees.”
