Say Coaches
Cheering students, led by the
rally committee, paraded through
the campus last night, ending at
the millrace bleachers with a ral
ly for the Stanford-Oregon game
Saturday in Palo Alto.
Proceedings were begun by Les
Anderson, rally leader. Yell Lead
ers Earle Russel, Max Miller, and
Bud Steele were introduced and
led the group in an Oregon yell,
following which Student Body
President Lou Torgeson greeted
the students and encouraged them

Registration to Last Through Saturday
Long lines, trailing serpent-like over the floor of
McArthur court, will begin to form this morning,
as students swarm to register for the University
of Oregon’s 65th academic year.
C. L. Constance, assistant registrar, estimated
Wednesday that there would be an enrollment drop
of approximately 5 per cent. Drafting of many
persons of college age and the abundance of de
fense jobs, both of which may be seen as indica
tions of a decreasing enrollment, may be balanced
against the large number of students who turned
out for rush week this year. For the past few years
the University has been gaining in enrollment.
Approximately 4000 students registered last year.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. today and con
tinue until 5 p.m. It will reopen Saturday ami
continue through the same hours.
Students planning to drive cars at school this
year must register them at a special automobile
table which will be located near the housing table.
The automobile committee advises that all stu
dents memorize their license numbers before regis
tration, so as to speed up the lines. They empha
sized that no student would be allowed to register
until his automobile had been checked in by the
Tax to Increase
Price of Tickets
The ASUO athletic card drive,
which starts this morning with
the opening of the doors at Mc
Arthur court, offered new in
centive for speed to prospective
ticket-purchasers when Ed Walk
er, ASUO ticket manager, yes
terday revealed that the sales tax
passed by congress in August will
affect athletic cards to the extent
of 10 per cent, beginning Octo
ber 1.
Students who purcnase cards
before this date will be exempt
from the tax, the cards being
only $9 as previously announced.
However, cards bought after
October 1 will be subject to the
10 per cent tax, bringing the total
cost to $9.90. Students who wish
to take advantage of the partial
payment plan, five dollars down
and the rest winter term, will be
saddled with 10 per cent extran

With a goodly number of cards
already bought and paid for by

their members can push their
way through registration.
Total card value this year

Freshman Charter Seems Contradictory
A “constitutional convention”
for freshmen last night ended in
an uproar that made last year’s
initial freshman upheaval look
like a pink tea party.
The class-card question reared
its ugly head again, and the con
stitution adopted last night pro
vides what seems to be contra
dictory information regarding the
necessity of cards for class mem
Article No. 2 states: “All reg
istered students in the class of
1945 who possess a membership
c^rd of the class of 1945 of the
University of Oregon shall be
Section No. 1 of Article No. 4,
however, says: “All regularly en
rolled students in the class of 1945
of the University of Oregon shall
be entitled to any and all priv
ileges of the class, providing they
meet the requirements of the
By-Laws Up
As explained to the freshmen
last night by ASUO "President
Lou Torgeson the provision in
Article No. 2 will be clarified at
Thursday’s meeting next week
when by-laws will be considered.
The cards may be free, if the by
laws are so worded, Torgeson
said, pointing to the absence of
any price stipulaton in the ar
ticle as it now stands.
Torgeson had barely started
reading the proposed constitu
tion, which was passed out to all
freshmen, when he was interrupt
ed by a motion from the balcony,
by June Hitchcock, which stated:
“In view of the fact that law stu
dents and the faculty are more
aware of the import of this con
stitution than we are, I move it
be accepted.” The motion was
promptly seconded.
Vote Changes
In the discussion that followed,
it was proposed as an “amend
ment” to the primary motion,
that the entire constitution be
read before its adoption. The
“amendment” was killed on the
first vote, 192-191. The proponents
of the “amendment” called for a
recount, which resulted in 216-162
against the proposed "amend

Largest Yearbook in World
Goes on Sale at Registration
Sale of the 1942 Oregana, pro
posed “world’s largest college
yearbook’’ will get into full swing
this morning when hundreds of
students, old and new, pass in
long lines through the registra
tion tables at the Igloo.
The first major step was taken
in the organization of the 1942
Oregana when Ted Harmon and
Eleanor Beck were appointed as
sociate editors, according to Wil
bur Bishop, editor. Two of the
most experienced workers on the
yearbook, Harmon and Miss
Beck served last year as manag
ing editor and executive secre
tary. They will help in supervis
ing the staff, planning layouts,
deciding style, and determining

The other Oregana position is
held by Wes Sullivan, who was
appointed managing editor last
year. Sullivan will be in charge
of all photography arrangements
and work connected with it.

and twro four-page inserts in duo

Exec Comm Expected
To Act on Vacancies
Action wil probably be taken
on the filling of two vacancies in
the ASUO executive committee
tonight when the committee meets
to consider apointment of suc
cessors or advisability of calling
a special election.
The two vacancies were left
when Chuck Woodruff, sophomore
representative on the council, and
Bob Calkins, first vice-president,
did not return to school. Calkins
is now in the army and Woodruff
is working in Los Angeles and at
tending UCLA.
According to the ASUO consti
tution, the committee is author
ized' to appoint successors who
may serve until the originally
elected officers are again declared
eligible for service, Lou Torgeson,
ASUO president, said.
However, there is an argument,
advanced by some members of
the committee, that a special elec
tion may be called, if the com
mittee deems it necessary. Other
committee members argue that a
speial election cannot be called
without a two-thirds vote of the
student body, declaring for the
