See Sports VOLUME XL NUMBER 31 New 1938-39 Figgers Guide On Sale Todag Campus Booth Will Open at 8; Many Unique Features to Be Included Just off the press, the new streamlined 1938-1939 “Pigger’s Guide” will make its first appear ance on the campus this morning at 8 o’clock. A booth placed between Oregon and Commerce will open at 8 and will remain open all day in order to take care of the sale of guides to students. Only one day has been allowed for the sale and in order to secure copies immediate ly, students should make sure to get them today, Roy Vernstrom, editor-manager of this year’s guide, said last night. Faculty Directory Included This year’s directory contains over 65 pages of names, addresses, home addresses, student majors and most important of all, tele phone numbers. Also included, is a faculty directory and a short ar ticle on the history of pigging written by Vernstrom. The book this year, which re quired over 200 man-hours or about 25 days to produce, will be four pages larger than last year’s guide and will contain over 3000 students’ names. No advance in prices will be made, the regular 25 cents a copy rate will prevail, Vernstrom said. ‘Rigger’s Guide’ on Copy The issue today will mark the first time that the words “pig per’s guide” have appeared on the copy. Although the book has been known for a long time on the cam pus by that name, the more so phisticated “student directory” has always appeared on the guide it self. Of course the words “stu dent directory” will appear on the copy, but stuffed in the back pock et of an illustration of a duck on the cover is a book on which is written “pigger’s guide.” Also included in the directory are the usual features arranged for the convenience of students. These include the list of women’s and men’s living organizations, their addresses and phone num bers; a complete map of the Uni versity campus and a diagram of the University library and stacks. Cal Students 'Up in The Air', Flying Popular By ANNA MAE HALVERSON College students flying high ? Ninety University of California students are doing just that, but only because they are members of the UC Flying club. These club members, 70 of whom signed up this semester, have the unusual opportunity of reduced rates for flying lessons and in structions from leading pilots and designers on the Pacific coast. The club was founded last year. * • * * Definition Attention, editing students! “Copying one book is plagiarism; copying three books is research.” Professor V. P.

Record-searching Dr. Arthur Marder, former University professor, has unearthed a prize-winning example of official “red tape” in the British admiralty records, a letter received this week by Dr. R. C. Clark revealed. The pay of an office cat is the subject of the voluminous corres pondence on which Marder reports. Some of the back-and-forth dis cussion Marder found as follows: Pay Raise Urged for Feline On March 16, 1921, H. E. Scotten, binder at the Admiralty office in London, pleaded the cause of the office cat. In his letter to the accountant general he asked for a raise in the cat's salary, which had been 13 shillings a quarter since 1902. Buck-Passing Fast and Furious The accountant general in May sent the request to the financial secretary, who in turn sent it to the first sea lord. The first sea lord, not certain of the worth of the office cat against “rat raids,” sent the request to the secretary, insisting however, that the matter should be discussed in parliament. “The fourth sea lord, subject always to financial consideration, which would require the con currence of the secretary, must have the last word in a matter which is one of navy victualling,” he stated in his letter. Cat Wage Held No Navy Problem Hhe secretary denied that this problem concerned the navy depart ment since no one in the admiralty was on the navy rations. The third sea lord suggested the “short time” system of working hours to prevent the raise. The request was put in the “yellow jacket,” which gave it priority, in case the cat did not have enough to eat pend ing the decision. Rat-Cafching Efficiency Doubted The assistant chief of the naval staff, next to pass on the request, suggested that the use of cats for destroying rodents was obsolete and in the interest of economy the cat should be destroyed. The deputy chief of the naval staff agreed upon the increase. Poison Gas Held Costly The financial secretary voiced his disapproval of poisonous gases on the cat because the expense might in the end amount to more. On reaching the first lord, it was decided in June to increase the wages without further delay. YWJMto Hold First Joint Conference “Student Problems” will be the theme of the first joint conference of the University of Oregon YWCA and YMCA at Cedarwood tavern at McKenzie Bridge.

I Pin Planter Put On Chain Gang By DU Brothers Little Willie doesn’t like pub licity . . . much! At any rate, he got his fill yesterday noon when fellow DU’s put him on the chain gang in front of the Col lege Side. William Gentry, ardent Chica go Sox fan, planted his pin on Chi O’s Della “the Cubs” Root some time ago. Hence the chain gang idea. But it’s not as bad as all that! Not when three charming "coeds serve you lunch on the curb. Della, appropriately enough, came through with a bottle of milk . . . nipple and all. Omin ous was the baby buggy, parked at Little Willie’s side by oblig ing brothers.

Parade Stops As 'O' Wearer Gets Subpoena Stories of subpoena servers were funny ones to Oliver Hus ton, a Sigma Nu Oregon grad of ’10, unitl the Saturday of Homecoming. Huston has a job in the title division of the state highway department. When a court has a case concerning titles, it is sometimes necessary fon an offi cial of the title department to testify. The Eugene court need ed an official. Huston, a two-sport letterman, was in the Order of the "O” par ade before the start of the Idaho game. Just as soon as he an nounced himself on the public address system, he was present ed with the subpoena. This inci dent literally held up the parade until the server had fulfilled his duties.

Professors Study Grade Change Plan Why not abolish grades in cer tain of the courses offered at the i University of Oregon at the end of the fall term ? . . . that is the question which many members of the faculty are considering, ac cording to a canvass taken yester day among instructors of a few of the schools of the University. Members of the art school fac ulty favor putting the “no-grade" system into operation as soon as I possible. W. S. Hayden, assistant instructor in architecture, said “We would be in favor of recording fall term grades under the new system.” Smith in Favor Dr. Warren D. Smith, head of the department o'f geography and geology, said, “I am glad to see the step taken by the faculty in the grade system. It is a distinct advance toward a better system which we hope to reach ultimately. “As long as the faculty has passed on the measure, the sooner we get the new system under way, the better. But I do not propose to suggest when and how this shall be done.” lish department expressed hmiself Dr. Frank G. Black of the Eng lish department, expressed himself as being against the use of the method in his classes in English composition, but thought that since the method had been accept ed for certain types of classes, there would be no objection to putting it into effect immediately. Action Slow Although* the majority of fac ulty members interviewed were favorable to the application of the plan immediately, none could sug gest a means of starting the ma chinery to bring about the actual change. The suggestion was made that the initial move should be made by the president's advisory board, by the faculty senate, or the president himself. Only fly in the ointment was the statement by Clifford L. Con stance, assistant registrar, that the new grade method should be explained in the University cata log, and that any change in the catalog as regards classes anc grading system should be included, The 1938-39 catalog is, of course already distributed, and the new one is being compiled. The question which students 01 the University and faculty mem bers alike are asking one anothei is, “Who will make the firsi , move?” Early Returns Give Salem Publisher 3-2 Lead Over Democratic Opponent; Race For U.

English Visitor Sees First Football Game By JACK BRYANT Football is more spectacular than any sport played on the other side of the Atlantic declared Miss Loch, a visiting Englishwoman who saw her first football games here this fall. Miss Loch of Winchester, southern England, is here visiting her brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. L. S. Cressman and will prob ably return name arier ennsimus. L. S. Cressman is head of the University anthropology depart ment. I especially like the colorful uni forms, Miss Loch said. In England the athletes wear shorts and sweat ers, but the football players are well padded and they do not appear to stand the chance of injury our athletes do, she explained. The coeds with their bright col ors and waving pom-poms were especially attractive, Miss Loch said. In England the sports enthus iasts take their sports dead ser iously with no organized cheering. Once in a while there will be a spontaneous cheer but everything is business-like. Even the players don’t seem to get fun out of their sports. The entire picture of American sports is different, the bands, or ganized cheering, stunts, and bright colors of the fans and play ers, make it different. The game it self is more exciting than those on “our side.” All of this goes to make your “football” very cheery, Miss Loch declared.
