'Last Times Today’
j^EUISTKATION today marks the begin
ning of the end of an era for the ASUO,
a term which will be the last of its kind.
Today and this term represent the final
appearance of combination ASUO cards on a
buy-if-yon-like basis. Next time they appear
at registration they will not be combinations,
and forty per cent of the optional part will
be on the required side of the fee slip, for
after this year the state board’s new $2 “inci
dentals” fee will be in full force.
But the drawback at this particular mo
ment is that the compulsory feature is half a
year away. This morning begins the same old
selling campaign, in which the dollar for
dollar weight of the ASUO card is carefully
gone over with each registering undergradu
ate. Three dollars must be charmed out of
individual pockets.
# # *
yyURTNO the years of the present system of
high-pressure selling at registration!
ASUO card sellers have held an unenviable
position. No matter who they might be or how
good their reputation otherwise, they found
themselves regarded with general suspicion
once they took a selling seat behind the long
sales tables.
This morning the hand-picked young men
and women selling for the ASUO will be be
ginning the familiar campaign, unaffected
by the changes in the offing. Their work is
cut out for them.
OOK at it this way. A fifth of the way is
yet to go before the annual ASUO income
budget can be met. This income figure is al
ways unpredictable, but the fixed operation
charges go on regardless of income. Three
dollars this term rounds out the annual
ideal $15.
Spring is obviously about to pop. This
should soften up even the buyer whose heart
is hard as a bus driver’s head.
But spring or no spring, and regardless of
the complications the fee change will bring
next year, the fact remains that today is the
last time litere will be choice in ASUO buy
ing, at least as far as $2 a term is concerned.
In view of previous experience it is to be
expected that the ASUO will have a good day
and a good term.
Future for Jitterbugs
The guy who “borrows” rec
ords from his fraternity house,
knows the name of every player
in every band, and dents the
mantlepiece witli his drumsticks
while listening to the radio, has
a real future according to Ed
Cashman, master of ceremonies
o* n new radio show, "Song
Pluggers,” which made its de
but last week.
The future is in the song
plugging profession, a rapidly
growing field devoted to getting
band leaders to play a publish
er’s tunes. One of the newest
trendc in the profession is its
invasion by college graduates
who just can't keep their feet
from tapping when the music
starts. Who knows, maybe the
wild-eyed jitterbug in the next
room will be making a fortune
from his hobbv in a few years.
Advertising Dinah
Dinah Shore, torrid chirpie
from the south, has been the ob
ject of a large publicity build
up by radio and recording
studios. Dinah has become so
conscious of the fact that she is
sending all her postcards “pub
licity style.” On her latest one
she says, “I was ‘Watching the
Clock’ only ‘Last Night’ and ‘I
Thought About You.’ Instead of
being ‘Careless’ and saying
‘Darn That Dream,’ I decided to
put my thoughts on record.
From now on ’I’ve Got My
Eyes on You’."
All of which means that Dinah
has just recorded the above
tunes. Sort of clever advertis
ing, what?
Have Heard It?
CNta^tflBUer. (who seems to
haunt this column), played
"Tuxedo Junction” on his Tues
day broadcast for the fifth or
sixth time. This tune has some
thing absolutely unique about
its melody and rhythm. The
dam thing hasn’t got any real
tune, but it has a kind of pagan
rhythm that appeals to the "na
tive” in us. It’s so entirely dif
ferent from other music that it
gets under your skin—and stays
Pandemonium Due Today

Players are going to “Play”

Directors will act, announcers
will sing, and news analysts will
turn their assignments over to

folks, that term is here. Every
one is anticipating bliss. Our
pals, the Kappa Sigs, get an
early start again as usual. This
time all they do is leave a lad

second story won’t have to use
the stairs. All during vacation
one of the AOPi townies watched
the place to see who was going
to elope.
Also new are the sidewalks of
the Chi O’s and Sigma Chi’s. Of
course you’ve already noticed
what the Sigma Nu’s did to
their place last week. It all
started, according to John Kop
pen, when some of the boys felt
the good weather and decided
to go fishin’ . . . naturally they
had to have worms, and where
is there a better place to dig for
worms than the Sigma Nu front
lawn? They got so ambitious
in their digging that they dug
up one of their big fir trees.
This still leaves them with sev

Marshmallow Roast
Of course last week’s big
events can’t be overlooked.
There was Bob Flavelle’s marsh
mallow roast up on Twentieth
street. The Sigma Kappa’s set
that one up.
Then there was a smootche
club reunion in Portland, and a
Salmon clubbers “War’s Over”
celebration in Clatskanie which
was a success in spite of the fact
ttiat Just offhand no one could
reveal Just which war was be

Two Iron Arches
Given to Art School
By Former Donor
Two wrought iron grills for the
stairway window arches of the
University art school were recent
ly made and presented the school
by Ray Dawson of Portland.
The grills were designed espe
cially for the windows by Wallace
Hayden, assistant professor of ar
chitecture, and were executed by
Mr. Dawson.
Dawson has done other wrought
iron work for the University, in
cluding the Arnold Bennett Hall
memorial gates in the library.
The new archway pieces will re
place wooden bars which were for
merly in .the window spaces be
tween the stairway and the hall
to the art school library. They will
be permanently fixed within the
next few' days, according to Mrs.
Mabel Houck, art school secretary.
