Hello Mix

Erb's Own Party;
Dick Urges Spirit
Of Friendship
Oregon piggers will get their
first real workout of the fall so
cial season Saturday night, when
Webfoots officially say “welcome”
to their new freshman class at
the annual “hello dance” in McAr
thur Court
Free and informal, the dance is
President Donald M. Erb’s “own
party” for the biggest of all Ore
gon freshman classes and their
elders, according to John Dick,
ASUO prexy. Preceding the affair,
a reception for the president will
be held in the lobby of the Igloo.
All students are urged to meet
Dr. Erb at that time, Dick said.
Beginning at 8:30, the receiv
ing line, made up of leading Uni
versity faculty members, will
form to greet dancers. Kwama and
Skull and Dagger will assist with
Art Holman's dance band, well
known to campus piggers, will
furnish the music, Dick an
nounced. Campus clothes are in
“No decorations will be used to
transform the Igloo,” the prexy
said, “except a lot of friendly
smiles to let people know that we
really mean this ‘hello’ business.”

All students bringing automo

Frosh Books
For Vote Use
The 1,000 copies of a suggested
| frosh constitution which were

last night, should be held in safe
keeping until the first of next
week, according to Roy Vernstrom,
in charge of freshman organiza
The original idea was to vote on
the document last night, but a mix
up occurred which necessitated
waiting until the first of next week
for a class meeting and vote,
Vernstrom said.
“If frosh will keep their hand
books and look them over carefully
before next week,” the freshman
; organizer said, “it will be possible
to move frosh organization along
j smoothly at that meeting.”

Members of the University of
Oregon co-operative students board
swung into action Wednesday night
by adopting a modified plan of the
Rochdale cooperative movement
system which will entitle all regu
larly enrolled students on this
campus to share in a dividend pay
ment at the close of the school
As though typifying the spirit of
the new, modern and up-to-date
University of Oregon co-op, the
board voted in favor of the Roch

of benefit to the entire student
Fee Abolished
The original Rochdale move
ment provides for the pay
ment of a membership fee by all
students wishing to participate in
the cooperative system. The local
co-op has decided to abolish the
payment of this fee, which will in
no way deter the operation of the ;
Amount of dividend to be paid
at the end of the year will be de

The two were married in August
at Sheridan, Oregon, and sailed for
Alaska two days later. They now
edit, write, and publish a minute j

The Sitka Sentinel, as their pub-!

essary because there is no press

As ‘Oregonize’ Drive Begins
Theme of 1940
Yearbook Will
Follow Annual
Of Last Year
The 1940 Oregana, Oregon’s of
ficial yearbook and successor to
the 1939 All-American edition, will
go on sale to the students today at
Although George Knight, editor,
has not released his ideas for the
1940 Oregana, it is known that he
will stay with the same theme
that proved to be so popular last
year. He did say that he will at
tempt to use the criticisms that
the National Collegiate Press
made to the best advantage of the
book. The N. C. P. is the asso
ciation that yearly makes the rat
ings of the various yearbooks.
The price of the book is $5 with
a reduction of $1 with every pur
chase of a $15 ASUO card. Stu
dents may use the term payment
plan to buy their copy, a dollar
each term and the remaining two
dollars will be deducted from their
general deposit fee. The dollar crel
it received with the purchase of a
$15 ASUO card may be used as
the initial payment.
Dick Williams, business mana
ger, has advised that any student
not understanding the term pay
ment plan should contact him.
Last year during the first day of
registration over 1000 students
purchased yearbooks.

Sign-Up Process
For Students
Oregon’s new .streamlined regis
tration system, featuring photo
static copies of record's rather
than red books, goes into action
this morning at eight o’clock, when
McArthur Court opens to register
the University’s biggest student;
enrollment in history.
The registration setup being;
used this year is built around the j
general idea of pre-registration for
"old students.” University en-!
roliecs who were here last term j
saw their advisors yesterday and
got their approval of courses, so
that payment of fees will be all
that most of them will have to do
this morning.
Freshmen will still discuss their’
courses with advisors today, as
they did by the old method. They
will see their professor at the time
apointed for them when they paid
their matriculation fee. Attempts
to arrange courses before the des
ignated time will not be accepted.
The registration set-up calls for
a signature of approval by advisors
on the proposed course, approval
by the instructors in each school

With as strong a lineup of at
tractions as lias ever been seen in
an ASUO card, and with a well

ASUO card prices will remain
Hie same as for the last three
years, which is .$15 for the year,

spacious Igloo floor one of the first
things they will see is a display
of some very fine furniture, which
is being offered as a special bo

in the group are a $75 davenport

As usual, the drive captains
have arranged for representatives
in all living organizations. These,
too, are to reap benefits from their
participation in the drive, with
daily awards of various kinds,
from cash to free cokes.
Banner s, posters, streamers,
cards, window stencils, and signs
will cover the campus like wallpa

Chief Eaton and Pat Taylor have
cooked up between them. Largest
of these will be in McArthur Court,
which is under the watchful dec
orative eye of Bob Swan, succes
sor to Dale Mallicoat.
Eaton has announced a meet

held at 5 today at the Igloo.
