Paper Carriers
Get Reprimand
Discipline Group
Sends Warning
On Ballot Stuffing
A severe reprimand was the
punishment accorded yesterday
to the politicallv-minded Emer
ald carriers who stuffed copies of
the daily with partisan election
bills on the morning of the frosh
balloting. The decision was made
by the student discipline commit
The student-faculty disciplin
ary group passed a resolution
asking that the publication com
mittee of the educational activi
ties board wield' stronger control
over Emerald distributors in the
future, according to Chairman
Karl W. Onthank.
The plea of the carrier, who
stated that he had not been
warned against so “stuffing” the
papers, was accepted by the com
mittee on the grounds that al
though the procedure was high
ly irregular, there was no pre
vious instruction to the contrary.
Emerald business heads were
instructed to provide closer
checks on workers in the future,
and to keep them in line with
University policy.

Junior Weekend canoe fete will
go on sale today at the educa
tional activities office, Lloyd Sul
livan, general chairman, an
nounced last night.
Students may reserve blocks of
seats if they “lay cash on the
line," Sullivan said. “It is impor
tant that students purchase their
tickets early, so that they may
be sure of seeing the water pag
eant,” he stated.
A crowd even larger than last
year's is expected to witness the
fete. Chairman Sullivan declared.
All the tickets for last year's
canoe fete were sold out long be
fore the event took place. More
seats are being incorporated into
the bleachers this year, but seat
ing space will still be lacking, he
Garnets, Goldmines
Seen by Geologists
Clamboring over rocks and
hills, pounding diligently on hand
specimens, and standing with
open mouths staring at huge old
dredges, the field geology class
got a first hand view of “geology
in the raw" last weekend.
Fourteen students accompanied
by Dr. L. W. Staples, geology in
structor, took a 465-mile trip
through southern Oregon. From
the primitive sluice box to the big
bucket dredges and hydraulic
hoses, the geologists examined
gold mining at close range.
Several students trudged over
a hill and hacked a few garnets
out of the rocks. Frequent stops
were made on the way to Medford
so the group could trace the geo
logic column through the road
cuts and also pick off specimens
of sandstone and serpentine.
A stop was made at the mys
tery house, located near Grants
Pass, and the group temporarily
had its equilibrium upset by the
magnetic circle which pushes
people unceremoniously against
the wall. The guide appeared
startled when several Bruntons
were whipped out on him when
he remarked that members of the
party could test his statements
by their own instruments. As a
whole the group was skeptical of
the magic properties of the old
Ray Treasher, United States
geologist located in Grants Pass,
traveled with the group a while
Saturday and explained some of
the quirks and oddities of his
particular region.
The geologists returned late
Sunday with several photographs
to be developed and hunks of Ore
gon scenery resting snugly in
their specimen bags.
Dill Pickle club members are
giving the second of a series of
buffet luncheons in the YW bun
galow this noon, Mrs. E. E. De
Cou, YWCA executive secretary,
announced yesterday.
