Oregon Coeds to Pag
At Mortar Board Ball
Annual tribute will be paid Sat
urday night by University coeds
to that slogan, often sounded by
female propagandists but seldom
practised, “It’s the woman who
pays, and pays.” On that evening
coeds will "squire” their “deserv
ing” male companions to the Mor
tar Board ball in McArthur court,
the last big dance of the school
When formally-attired couples
saunter up to the ticket window,
it will be the woman who digs
deep to “cough up” the $1 admit
tance price. And a good idea it is,
too, men believe.
John Callahan’s Portland orches
tra has been signed to play for the
“pay-off” event of the spring so
cial calendar, Chairman Gayle Bu
chanan announced yesterday.

Fewer Withdrawals From
University Seen This Year
A pick-up in enrollment and a new low in withdrawals was noted
in a recent statistical check-up received from Clifford Constance,
assistant registrar, comparing the present school enrollment with that,
of last year.
Spring term all school total at the University for this year is 3U.! 0.
Fall term was 3120, and winter 3027, not counting withdrawals, whicix
two terms and up to May 5 of
spring term, amount to 169.
Last year’s all school enrollment
peak was 2904, reached at the be
ginning of fall term, and steadily
decreasing from then on. Total
withdrawals for the year were 216.
In a special study of withdrawals
it was noted that the greatest num
ber generally occur fall term, and'
decrease proportionately through
out the year. o
Withdrawals are not easily ef
fected, especially after two weeks
of school in each term, when it be
comes necessary to have the state
ment of the student’s advisor and
professors, saying he is receiving
passing grades, or a special grant
from the dean of men or women.
