Winds, i?am
Cramp Style
O/ Dads' Posters
The cold winds did blow, and
also it rained slightly -so Ralph
Woodall’s committee, decorat
ing for visiting Oregon Dads,
decided to play indoors. After
waiting for a pause in the wind
and showers which have plagued
their attempts to put up posters
on several of the buildings on the
campus, the committee moved
the majority of the signs indoors
in their respective buildings.
“The displays were planned as
outdoor illustrations originally,”
Woodall said, “but we hope to
have them so arranged inside
that both visitors and students
will be able to get the ideas they
If the sun comes out, the signs
go out, the committee promised.
Posters and signs on display are
the work of John Schierer, Bob i
Clever, Earl Curtis, Bob Swan,
and Woodall.

into a small hurricane, all five of
Oregon’s flight school planes will
be warming up at the runways

A shower of leaflets—some of
them lucky ones—will flutter
earthward as the planes, flying
yellow and green streamers, circle

Choice Behind Sked
Two Weeks, Legal
Stipulation Shows \
ASUO is legally overdue for 4
new yell leader by nearly twq
weeks, it was learned yesterday,
when the ASUO executive com
mittee unearthed the rules in
stalled less than a year ago gov
erning the yell setup.
According to rules adopted last
year, after Dick Williams made a
three-month study of rally and
yell setups |at other conference
schools, the election for the yell
king “shall be held within two
weeks after the opening of winter
Assembly ’Election Necessary
Replacement requirement makes
necessary an ASUO assembly as
soon as possible, the committee
decided, to elect a new yell lead
er. The rules declare, “The yell
king shall be elected by a vote of
the associated students of the
University of Oregon at a general
assembly. The election shall be
held within two weeks after the
opening of winter term.”
What to do about it was another
question, however. The committee
learned that it is possible there
will be no all-school assembly
Thursday at the assembly period,
which would leave the hour free
for the ASUO to get itself a new
yell leader.
Two Possible Candidates
Two assemblies are another pos
sibility, if last year’s practice is
to be followed. Last year there was
one assembly for the purpose of
looking over the candidates and
another for the election itself. This
possibility seemed remote, how
ever, in view of the fact that last
year marked the inauguration of
the new plan and no candidates
were known, while this year the
field is limited by the rules to the
two yell dukes.
Handbook Sans Rule
First inkling that Yell Leader
Bob Elliott was operating on bor
rowed time came when a search
of the constitution for the rules
governing managerial awards re
minded of the non-inclusion in the
ASUO handbook of the new yell
and rally committee code, adopted
too late last year to get into the
The when and how of next
w'eek’s assembly, if one is decided
on, will have to wait until next
week, when ASUO President John
Dick will announce what steps he
will take.
Dr. Taylor to Speak
Dr. Howard Taylor, head of the
psychology department, will talk
before the psychology and educa
tion section of the Inland Empire
association meeting in Spokane
the first week in April.
Dr. Taylor will review experi
ments in reading and incorporate

Dobbin Goes College;
Or Art for Horse Sake
You’ve heard of working' your
way through college ?
Well, here’s a new one. A horse,

His name is Barney, his color
chestnut brown (horse chestnut
someone suggested), and he is
hired from a Eugene farmer by
the sculpture department of the
University art school.
Living models are often used in
the sculpture class, graduate as
sistant Jean Sutherland says, but
working with real animals is a
rarity. The sculpture class has not
had an opportunity to model a live
horse for years, so the experience,
Miss Sutherland pointed out, is as
novel to the students as to the
In the modeling room, Barney
occupies a special sawdust stand.
Hitched to a peg in the wall, he
finds food and water conveniently
close. Windows are kept open to
keep the horse from getting over
heated, and sculptors “spoil” him
with bits of sugar and apples.
Since the department intends to
keep Barney on as model until
the farmer needs him for spring
plowing, the horse, observers say,
seems to have realized his length
of stay and to have decided to
make the most of it. "He is a model

Newspaper’s makeup was com

Erb Gives
Okay to
ASUO's Executives
Meet With Faculty
On Activity Issues
The ASUO executive committee
went calling yesterday on Dr. Don-*
aid M. Erb, president of the Uni
versity, and when it came away
members bore his assurance that
they would henceforward attend
en masse all meetings of either
the educational activities or ath
letic hoards.
The number of student votes on
each hoard will remain the same,
however. In addition, every mem
ber of the executive committee will
be placed on the mailing list of
both hoards, to receive in advance
the customary written notice of
meetings and contemplated agenda.
Plan Long Considered
The visit to Dr. Erb’s office, the
first in the career of the present
executive committee as a body,
was decided on Thursday at the
meeting held to consider the new
$2 fee.
All-board membership has for
some time been a pet project of the
committee. Members of the com
mittee told the president they felt
they could do a better job this way
and at the same time augment the
student voice by lowering the ratio
of student-faculty representation
to something less than the preva
lent four-to-one of the last meet
Student Vote Remains
Inclusion of the entire executive
committee on both boards is the
first real change in the composi
tion or character of those bodies
since the present arrangement was
worked out several years ago.
The membership of each board
is a formula which never varies,
the membership remaining virtu
ally year after year, except for
the inclusion of 50 per cent of the
executive committee. It was for
this reason that Dr. Erb stipulated
the student vote would remain the
same. However, votes will be trans
ferable among executive commit
tee members, Dr. Erb said.
First use of the new system will
be Monday night, when the ath
letic board goes into its winter
term session.
Yesterday’s call upon the presi
dent had much in common with
' “The man who came for dinner.”
The committee came intending to
stay an hour, and then got so en
grossed in their work that they
stayed twice that long, talking in
formally about fees and athletics
as well as the boards.
New Fee Discussed
The decision of whether the new
$2 fee includes student body mem
bership is up to the executive com
mittee, Dr. Erb said, with the ques
tion revolving around which fee
should bear the franchise right.
It was even suggested among the
committee that the ASUO mem
bership be made the basis of a
special card at a low tax, which
would divorce the student body
membership completely from either
fee, whether for educational ac
tivities or athletics.
Newsmen, Dads See
Union Hall Display
Press conference delegates and
the first of the Dads to arrive on
the campus looked over the display
in the student union room yester
day under the guidance of the
Frosh union hall promotion com- *
mittee, first activity tackled by the
new group.
Glenn Williams, committee head,
announced that Spencer Weills is
to direct personnell in the room
today. Williams commended the
committeemen, declaring that they
handled the job well, answering
questions and pointing out inter
esting features of the exhibit.
Every Dad who has not yet seen
the display is invited to inspect
it today, the committee stress
es. A squad will be on duty in the
room again today. A scrapbook of
clippings, minutes of meetings,
articles, and pertinent data is to
be incorporated in what will be a
