The distribution will go on all day from 8 to 5, except for an hour at noon. To morrow from 8 until 12 will be an additional period of distribution, in case all copies do not go out the first day. It is hoped all students will collect their copies the first day. Faculty members will have their copies delivered Saturday. Pfeiffer Rigs Up Machine to Shine Soldiers' Belts Even the soldier’s load is lightened by modern machinery. No longer is it necessary for the followers of the militant profes sion to spend long hours rubbing and polishing their boots and belts, only to hear the inspecting officer growl, “Why don’t you polish your belt? Corporal, give him kitchen duty!’’ Joseph Pfeiffer, military de partment storekeeper, has rigged up a motor on a small table, which will spin a circular brush very rapidly—and will put a beautiful polish on a belt. Perhaps the reason for Mr. Pfeiffer’s interest in easing the lot of the soldier is that he is a retired army sergeant himself. ea --- — Professor Burrell To Teach at WU This Summer O. K. Burrell, professor of busi ness administration, will be on the faculty of the Pacific Northwest Banking school at the University of Washington this summer be tween August 21 and September 1. The faculty of this school consist ing of practical bankers and col lege professors from all parts of the United States will give a course in academic and practical study of certain phases of bank operation. The school was started in 1936 by Cecil E. Jenks when he was the supervisor of banking in the state of Washington for bank offi cers and employees. Professor Burrell will lead a lec ture and discussion class in current economic problems. CLASSES W ILL MEET Eleven o’clock classes, which were postponed yesterday be cause of the installation assem bly, will be held at the same tim etoday, it was learned last night from Dean Karl W. On thank's office. Junior Weekend Plans Pushed as Deadline Nears No Dismissal of 11 o'clock Friday Classes, UO Officials Decree; Conflict With Campus Luncheon Hour Seen It’s only a matter of hours now until Junior Weekend, 1939 edition moves out at full steam ahead, taking the entire campus with it in its rush. Plans are virtually complete for every feature of the program, which is one of the fullest in years of crammed Junior Weekend schedules. Only hitch so far was the report that, contrary to the practice of Prom Sets Underway, Say Heads Wonderland Theme Transforms Igloo; Holman's Band To Go on KORE Proud as new parents yesterday were Glenn Eaton and Bud Aron son, co-chairmen of the Junior prom, tomorrow night’s headline attraction. With their long-time efforts be ginning to show results and their event beginning to look good, the two co-chairmen will today be roll ing up their sleeves and getting ready for the actual physical toil involved in the building of a prorn set in the Igloo Friday. Art Holman and his boys were reported in heavy training for their three-day grind, in which the prom is the first round. Newest wrinkle in prom band tactics as revealed by diminutive Glenn Eaton is a request hour during the evening, during which Holman will play re quests from the dancers. No speci fications were given for the method of entering requests. Virtually certain for the prom is that a half hour of it will be broadcast over KEX, Portland, Eaton said. Holman’s is an MCA band. Decorating will begin early to morrow morning, it was an nounced, with Dale Mallicoat at the helm, plus several representa tives from the Allied Art studios of Portland, who are supplying the expensive false ceiling and the wall drapes. Latest to be recruited for the decorating is Skull and Dag ger, soph men’s service honorary, who were asked in on the project on the ground that it is a campus dance rather than a class function. The queen and her royal court will add much to the evening's pro gram. There will be a special stand for Maxine Queen Alice and her four looking-glass princesses. At (Please turn to page too) last year ana orner years, classes' would not be dismissed at 11 to morrow. Provision made was that classes would be let out at noon and not before, regardless of when campus luncheon was scheduled to start. Although mothers are expected to register before luncheon, and although classes do not let out until 11:50, the time when the mothers’ special train pulls in at the station, the extra hour was not included because, it was an nounced through Dean Onthank’s secretary, the extra hour would not be needed for student body in auguration. Last year classes were dismissed at 11 and inauguration was part of the luncheon program, which began as now at 12:30. Weekend heads announced they would try again to get the hour free, and campus luncheon planners were faced with the necessity of changing their plans at the last moment in favor of the unexpected change in usual weekend tactics. The other parts of the program were also threatened. Another reason announced tor the omission this year was that proper arrangements had not been made, and it would be too late (yesterday) to notify professors they would not hold classes at 11 Friday. In view of the inevitable mixup and general confusion expected when the hundreds of mothers be gin to arrive and attempt to register before luncheon, which is already a waiting game, Junior Weekend heads felt last night they were justified in making their re quest for the hour, it was stated. Aside from this one sour note, everything was going along all right. The water carnival was get ting ready, prom arrangements were complete, and all other de partments showed good progress. Canoe fete floats were in the pro cess of building, indicating one of the most striking canoe fete com binations ever shown here. Patsy Taylor, chairman of cam pus luncheon, announced yester day that there will be a special serving table for students with mothers at the lawn picnic. Mo thers will receive their guest tick ets at registration. Others will get their tickets at living organiza tions, and admissions will be on sale at the luncheon for 25 cents. Amato in Wonder Land Archimedes II, No Less I Hard-working law scholars last night released plans for their awe inspiring barge of the canoe fete. It is understood the barge is to be the highlight of the Junior Week end fete. There was much bickering on the part of the barristers as to who would have the honor of serv ing on the barge building commit j tee, according to the law school propaganda bureau. Committee members finally selected are: Da vid Silver, union artist, William Robert, right bower chairman, Robert Wagner, left bower chair man, Robert Reckon, construction engineer, Wendell W .Wyatt, as sistant engineer, Mel Rooney, as sistant to the assistant engineer, Jack Dunn, head Stooge, Helen Gorrell, Harold Johnson, and Don Thomas, assistant stooges. It was announced that due to the fact that it was Frank Nash’s idea to have the float he will be head of the navigation committee and also will act as chief hydrau j lie engineer. Nash's principal duty will be to swim the barge down 1 the mill race. The design of the float had to be changed at the last minute. Committee members, after weigh ing Queen Amato, decided that the dainty little float they had in mind would turn Into a submarine with the presence of the queen. Ru mors that Queen Amato I did not know how to swim also prompted a change in construction plans. Now, it was said, the float will take on the appearance of a battle ship—with a special derrick being built to hoist the weighty queen into position. An added attraction of the law scholars’ brainchild will be that the flower girl, Kenneth Abraham, will accompany the so-called float riding in a bucket. The president of the law school stooge body, D. Graves Burdick II, issued this statement for pub lication: “Any member of the court not appearing in an appro priate vertical position in costume and not able to navigate (the barge) will be hog tied, tarred and feathered, and ridden out of town on a rail.” Governor Gives Official OK To New ASUO Executives 'I Do Solemnly Swear' (Courtesy of the Register-Guard) Governor Charles A. Sprague ... Is shown administering the oath of office to the four newly elected ASUO officers at yesterday’s assembly in Gerlinger hall. Left to right the new members of the executive committee are: John Dick, president; Jeanette Hafner, secretary; Boy Vernstrom, second vice president, and Verdi Sederstrom, first vice-president. Moot Court Receives Baffler Playful Prank Brings Damage Suit to Mr. Gill “Don't ever trust nobody" seems | to be the moral of tonight's moot trial, the third in the annual law school series. The case of Lee ver sus Gill will be tried at 730 at the Lane county court house, with Judge Orlando John Hollis presid ing. The case is built around a cer tain Mr. Lee and his automobile-^ or at least something that once went under such a title. One eve ning a Mr. Gill and friends, being of a gay and frivolous nature, changed the 1939 license plates on cars owned by them and their ac quaintances for old license plates originally obtained for political campaign purposes. Mr. Lee was not involved in the plan in any way, but in the course of the eve ning his 1939 plates were removed from his so-called car and old li cense plates substituted. Later in the same evening Mr. Lee called on a young lady to take her riding. Apparently blinded by thoughts of the entertainment ahead, Lee did not notice the switched license plates. So, Mr. Lee and lady friend merrily drove up the McKenzie highway. About thirty miles from Eugene \ Mr. Lee noticed a light waving in the roadway ahead of him. He speeded up and passed the individ ual waving the light. Then he' heard a siren behind him, imme-1 diately thereafter two or three! shots, and then he felt one of his tires go out. He came to a stop and was confronted by a state po liceman who placed Lee under ar [.rest. Lee was booked on charges of driving a car without proper li cense plates and for failing to stop when commanded to do so by an officer. Lee later learned of the switch ing of his license plates by Mr. Gill and friends. Lee has authorized Messrs. McLaughlin and Welsh to sue Mr. Gill, if in their opinion, he has a cause of action. Action brought against Mr. Gill will be defeated by Messrs, Davis and Helm. I _ Christian Council Names New Head Bob Tindall was named to the presidency of the Student Chris tian council at elections held Tues day afternoon. Other officer^ elect ed include Murray Adams, vice president; Eleanor Entler, secre tary, secretary; and Anne Dean, treasurer. Officers will be installed at the council picnic in Hendricks park May 21, Mary Field, retiring presi dent, said. Warm Weather Whets Invalid's Ice Cream Yen Business on a wholesale scale came to local ice cream parlors yesterday, when half the patients in the infirmary kept their friends busy traveling to and fro for milk shakes, malts, and ice cream as a result of the sud den “heat wave.” Enjoying the hospitality of the campus hospital yesterday were Seth Smith, Betty Plankington, Alice Hoffman, Pat Tuller, Hel en Zavodsky, Maxine Winniford, Beverly Young, Peggy Snow, Margaret Spliid, Nick Maticli, and Bill Cardinal. German Honorary Presents Awards To Leading Students Delta Phi Alpha, German hon orary, at a meeting Wednesday night in Gerlinger hall presented awards to four outstanding Ger man students. A book entitled “Auf Spures des Jungen Goethe” by Ott.o Ernst Sutetr was given by the Carl Schurz Memorial foundation to Perry J. Powers for his excellence in German studies. The German government through its consul in Portland, Robert G. Clostermann, gave two books on German art and history to the department to give to outstanding students. Lorraine Gjording, who is equally well-versed in German and Swedish, and Mary Hughes re ceived these. George Bodner, with a straight “A” average for all of his work in German, was given the Delta Phi Alpha book award. This vol ume by Emil Waldmann is entitled “Albrecht Duerer.” Work by the Eugene extension classes in metalcraft is now being shown in the windows of Wash burne’s department store. Includ ed in the articles on display are trays, bookends, metal spinning work, bowls, two sets of goblets, hammered trays, cut work, and candlesticks. Club Launches Drive on Bill The Oregon Commonwealth Fed eration club on the campus will launch a drive tonight to get sig natures for the referendum peti tion on the bill changing the date of Oregon’s presidential primary election from May to September. The campus group will meet with interested students and towns people at Westminster hall at 8 p.m. Mr. Monroe Sweetland, execu tive secretary of the Common wealth federation, will be on hand to explain the nature of the bill and to state why the Commonwealth is supporting the petition. The meeting will be chairmaned by Prof. S. Stephenson Smith, presi dent of the club. The bill under question was passed by the 1939 session of the state legislature, and its purpose is to move the primary date from May, as it has been for years, to September. Under the new set-up citizens of the state will not have an opportunity to vote for this state’s delegates to the national conventions, since these conven tions are held in mid-summer. The effect of the bill will be to evoke the convention system of election of delegates. In 1936 this scheme was submit ted to a vote of the people and was rejected by a 5 to 2 vote. The Commonwealth, the state grange, the American Federation of Labor, and other organizations behind the petition feel that since the people defeated the proposal once, they will want to defeat it again. MItS. HALL HAILS CHAMPS Evidence of her continued inter est in the University is shown by Mrs. Arnold Bennett Hall, wife of the sixth president of the Univer sity, in a letter to Dean J. H. Gil bert in which she heaped her praises on the national basketball champions. Mrs. Hall, who lives in Evans ton, Illinois, wrote that she en joyed seeing the Oregon games. The Order of the “O" will hold a luncheon meeting at the Phi Delt this noon. Theta Chi-Alpha Gam Float Will Be ‘House of Cards’ By JIM LEONARD Queen Alice (Maxine Glad) will be accustomed to seeing floats pass her when the float entered in the Junior Weekend canoe fete by Al pha Gamma Delta and Theta Chi comes through the water curtain. She wc(n’t grow tired of the floats though, because each is an important chapter of the canoe fete story. The Alpha Gam-Theta Chi float has been modeled from the theme of “The House of Cards,” taken from Lewis Car roll’s “Alice in Wonderland," which is the theme of Junior Weekend. Featured on “The House of Cards1’ float will be a pantomime by Queen Alice and the princesses. The administration will be the vic tim of a bit of burlesque as the float passes the stage. On Alpha Gamma Delta's float committee are Alice Bailey, Mar jorie Schnellbacher, and Virginia Tyrrell. Theta Chi is represented by Harry Davidson and Darrell Harbert. Assembly Meets Its Leaders Hobby's Boys Get Champ Blankets In Star-Studded Program By HELEN ANGELL Camera bulbs flashed, students rose and cheered, and political big wigs grimly “took it” yesterday as Governor Charles A. Sprague put the official OK on ASUO newly elected as executive chiefs. Admin istering the oath of office to John Dick, new ASUO prexy, and Verdi Sederstrom, Roy Vernstrom, and Jeanette Hafner, executive council members, Oregon’s chief execu tive culminated an excitement filled month of political doings at a Gerlinger assembly yesterday morning. Commending the University stu dents' choice of 1940 leaders, Gov ernor Sprague declared that a test of a college “results not in a test of the number of students, the wealth, or the physical plant, but in the achievements . . . and the leaders you build.” “Books and a faculty and labor atories equal a university,” he said, “but a university must do more than that ... it must inter pret the mental climate of a giv en generation and the culture of a people.” Early speakers at senior com mencement exercises, he recalled, gave students a world "wrapped up and tied with pink ribbon,” but those promises came, he declared, from an “age that was defeated.” “When your president hands you the world at graduation,” the governor forecast, "it won't be wrapped in pink ribbon . . . he’ll have to hand it to you in a bucket because it is such a mess!” He counseled Oregon graduates, then, not to be overconfident. “Be ware of movements that create youth as the great salvation of so ciety,” Governor Sprague advised. The way to success is hard, he declared, and “it is a mistake to look for easy avenues of escape.” Many seek for signs or formulas, he said, but few find them, be cause they are not at finger’s end. A nearly filled Gerlinger hall | rose to its feet in applause as the governor, President Donald M. Erb, Harry Weston, the new offi cers, and members of the cham pionship basketball team came on the stage to the strains of music by the University band. ASUO Prexy Harry Weston took his official leave of the student body he has guided for a year and turned the reins over to Dick. Wes ton also presented “National Champ” - inscribed blankets to Howard Hobson and his champion ship team traveling squad as ASUO recognition of their achieve ments. The chief executive left Eugene for Salem immediately after a special faculty luncheon in his hon or. Hotels Full; Mothers Lodged in Homes Students who want rooms for their mothers over Junior Week end in the private homes of Eu gene should see Mrs. Alice Mac duff, assistant dean of women, to day. Mrs. Macduff has the names of several families who would be willing to take care of some of the mothers since the accommodations in all the Eugene hotels are taken. “We want every mother to be comfortably placed,” stated Mrs. Macduff, and she urges that the students see her today. Plans are under way at Texas Christian university for the for mation of a band composed entire ly of coed instrumentalists.
