Three transport planes, two
Douglas DR-5’s and a Sikorsky

Eugene. Two of the planes landed
at the airport Wednesday after
noon, where a crowd of 3000 wait
ed to welcome the new arrivals and
join the parade which escorted the
players through town to their head
quarters at the Osburn hotel. The
San Diego contingent was met and
formally welcomed by Anse Cor

Hayward, track coach.
The third plane, piloted by the
flight commander, Colonel C. A.
Larkin, and containing Lieutenant
Colonel Hall, was unable to locate
the field because of the fog. Colo

Prove Surprise
At ASUO Meet

ment test last night at the associ

from a business administration fi

were found instead, much to the

Students explained that they
dashed to the press office in the
afternoon for the song sheets and
grabbed what they thought was
the correct bundle.

Temporary Leave
From Conscription
How will the Burke-Wadsworth selective service bill affect the
Uoiversity of Oregon student?
That is the question being asked by eligible students who will be
required to register -under provisions of the law on October 16, 1940.
Every student between the ages of 21 and 35 with the exception of
those men in advanced courses of the ROTC, will be required to regis
Businessmen Aid
Employment Office
"Every business in Eugene is
cooperating in attempting to place
students in either permanent or
partially permanent jobs, accord
ing to Miss Janet Smith, employ
ment secretary. The employment
service has been able to find jobs
for nearly every applicant that has
paid a visit to that office. Accord
ing to Miss Smith, an applicant for
a job must have good health, must
be willing to work at anything,
must be reliable and must be aver
age or above scholastically.
Jobs that pay for board and
room are most in demand by the
students, and pobs that are avail
able range from clerking in stores
to washing windows and cutting
ter on that date. Under part “A”
of Section 5 of the Burke-Wads
worth bill which reads as follows:
Students who are "cadets of the
advanced course, senior division,
Reserve Officers’ Training corps of
Naval Reserve Officers’ Training
corps shall not be required to be
registered and shall be relieved
from liability for training and serv
ice” under this act; those students
in that standing will be exempted.
All other college men, though
they are required to register, are
exempted from training under the
selective draft act, if they are en
rolled in a college or university,
preparing to receive a degree, for
the academic year ending in June.
After registration under the act,
should a student receive orders to
report for selective service, he
should immediately write a letter
explaining his affiliations with that
school and he shall be exempted
from that service until July 1, 1941.

It was awfully nice iof the Dads’
To start saving up all their dough
For some beautiful gates
With some fancy iron grates
That make quite an elegant show.
We thank you a lot for your gates,
As does anyone else who has seen
Why don't you start saving
Your dough to start paving
Some kind of highway between
them ?
