    As the Sophomores Hit the Water
Perennial victors, the freshman class of 1942 upheld traditions Saturday by pulling members of the
sophomore class into the millrace in their annual tug-o-war. Although the sophs went in first, before
the morning was over everyone had hit the race at least once.
Frosh Win Annual War
As Sophs Take Ducking
The annual frosh-soph swim and get-together last Saturday was a
huge success—at least from the freshman point of view. The frosh,
in traditional manner, won the annual tug-of-war game. Freshman
President Jack Daniels won a 25-cent bet from the sophomore presi
dent, Stan Staiger. And frosh, sophs, and innocent bystanders won a
millrace baptism.
It is understood that party sponsors were a bit disappointed that
the affair didn’t last longer. The morning’s entertainment began with
verbal pleasantries being ex
changed between fun - craving
frosh and sophs. Then, the fresh
men were on one side of the race
and sophomores on the other, each
clutching tightly to a length of
hawser. One mighty pull from the
frosh side of the race and the
sophs went swimming. At this
most of the party participants
plunged into the refreshing waters
of the race. Some were so anxious
that they didn't even bother taking
off their clothes.
While it undoubtedly has noth
ing to do with the frosh victory,
almost twice as many freshmen as
sophomores attended the picnic
and the rope, strangely enough,
seemed longer on the frosh part
of the race bank.
But what really hurt the picnic
sponsors was that very few, if any,
of the sophs stayed for refresh-1
ments after the game. Then, too, j
none of the Order of the ‘O’ men j
put in a noticeable appearance. As
the athletes were to act as chap- \
erons for the affair, it was not i
known whether there were any j
casualties or not. However, men s |
living organizations were to call;
roll at last night's house meeting j
in an effort to determine if any
unfortunate frosh or member of
of the class of '42 or '41 were miss
ing and unaccounted fof.

Seniors Earn
Mail Degrees
Figures show that many mem
bers of this year’s graduating class
have done part of their University
work by taking correspondence
courses offered by the extension
Every year a large number of
graduating seniors, sometimes as
many as forty or fifty, earn part
of their University credits in this
manner, according to Miss Mo
zelle Hair, head of the University
extension division.
At the present time 23 students
who expect to graduate this
spring are taking or have finished
taking a correspondence course for
credit toward their degree. This
does not include seniors who have
earned credits through correspond
ence courses taken some time in
the past.
Most of these students have tak
en just one correspondence course
but some have earned as many as
fifteen hours of University credit
through these courses.
The University of Oregon per
mits a student to earn as much
as sixty hours to count toward his
degree through taking correspond
ence courses. However, most stu
dents earn much less than this.

Elaine Grindell, pianist, will pre-1

She will play two selections by
MacDowell — “From a Wandering

Take a lesson, Mr. Hitler! Your agents who propagandize your "A
Car for Every Nazi" platform should come learn the ropes from Ore
gon lads and lassies.
Observe, Mr. Hitler, while five fun-loving collegians climb into each
of the student-registered cars on the campus . . . and then notice that
not a soul enrolled here is walking!
A car Tor every live suiaenis:
That's the revelation made by Ore
gon's genial campus cop, O. L.
Rhinesmith, yesterday as he took
i breath before doubling vigilance
to handle the traffic problem of
Junior Weekend.
Probably the hardest man to get
lold of on the campus, and hard
est to persuade to divulge informa
tion which might “hurt anyone"
liter you find him, the smiling red
leaded policeman finally agreed to
turn over registration records to
in Emerald reporter.
Today there are 564 student
manned automobiles, jalopies, sta
tion wagons, and what-have-you
buzzing down 13th street every
Jay. Even this amazing figure is
ower than the number checked in
last fall. Mrs. Rhinesmith, secre
tary to Oregon's “cop,” said. Last
fall 615 were listed.
Although the general campus
impression continues to be that
half the cars are California-li
censed, there are in reality, only
10 automobiles registered from the
sunshine state, Mr. Rhinesmith
pointed out.
The University’s one-man police
force slipped out of the office be
fore he could be pinned down to
talk about his duties, but Mrs.
Rhinesmith, hard-working secre
tary to the traffic division, took
aver the speaking honors for her
publicity-shy spouse. She dragged
out files in the tree-shaded office
behind Friendly hall, to show that
Oregonians themselves manage to
travel in style. It is the Oregonian
population at the University that
really travel in style, with 518
cars marked down to their credit.
Six Washington students ride in
stead of walk.
Although there is usually a siz
able percentage of cars from other
states during fall term, the group
of out-of-state cars takes a sharp
downward trend every spring, Mrs.
Rhinesmith explained. “The rea
son is probably that early in the
fall students come west to school
and bring the family car to trans
port belongings, but later in the
year take it home," she said. Be
sides six Washington cars, there
are only two listed in the “other
state" group. There is one Ohio
licensed car, and one from Mon

Senior Classes
Many members of the Univer
sity of Oregon faculty and of the
general extension division of the
state system of higher education
have been selected to address ele
mentary and high school graduat
ing classes at their closing exer
cises in more than fifty localities
in the state.
During the next three weeks not
only closing exercises of nearly
2000' elementary schools but also
the high school graduation or com
mencement events in approximate
ly 260 localities in the state will
be held. Some of the high schools’
senior classes provided practically
the whole program of the closing
exercises aside from the baccalau
reate services. Many others contin
ue the custom of inviting a prom
inent citizen of the community or
a member of the faculty of some
college or university to address
the graduating class.

University students interested in
music took time out from pre-ex

Audrey Aasen, violinist, which was
held Monday evening in the music
The lightness of touch so nec
essary to interpretation of De
bussy's works was skillfully car
ried through by Miss Chan in her
performance of “Danse." In a
similar impressionistic mood was
“The White Peacock" of Charles
Griffes. The Russion nationalism

i Miss Chan's understanding playing
j of "Hopak,” which was also of
fered in a vocal arrangement by
Igor Gorin in his spring concert
The classics received their share
of attention in Miss Aasen's part
of the program, which included a
Mendelssohn violin concerto. The

Reclaimed, it is used as fuel in the

were done with fine comprehension
of the varying moods. Corelli's "La

Miss Aasen's versatility.
Other selections from Miss Chan
were Bach’s “Prelude and Fuge
in F Major," Liszt’s "Sposalizio,”
and "Rhapsody in G Minor” by
Brahms. The pianist is a sopho
