Traditions Due
To Rule Again
Long-forgotten University ‘ tra
ditions” will be enforced again
this year by members of the
Order of the “O” in the week
before Homecoming, members de
cided Wednesday noon at their

law school steps and “hacked”
for their impudence. Among pun
ishable acts last year were smok
ing on the old campus, walking
on the Oregon seal in front of
Villard, and wearing the wrong
“class pants.” Freshmen were re
quired to wear rooters’ lids all
week. \
“We really hope to make this a
big week,” Jim Rathbun, presi
dent of the Order, said Wednes
day. “After last year’s experi
ment which turned out so suc
cessfully, I feel sure we can put
it over.”
Gerald Huestis was appointed
chairman of the Order of the “O”
alumni banquet, set for Novem
ber 29. Bill Carney was elected
vice-president of the organization,
and Hank Anderson was elected

Employment Problems
Fail to Stump Dr. Breen
Professor Quirinus Breen, as
sistant professor of social science
and history, has been experienc
ing non-employment problems.
Before fall term opened Pro
fessor Breen had four graduate
students to assist him. National
emergencies and government pri
orities intervened, however, and
Williams Clemes was claimed Dy
the farm security administration
program; Keith Rinehart was
transferred to the University of
California at Berkeley for educa
tional work, and Freeman Hol
mer’s services were requested by
the government at Salem.
The opening day of school was
approaching, and Professor Breen
was left with only one assistant.
After some difficulty, he succeed
ed in securing three other assist
ants: Daniel Koch, 1941 cum
laude graduate student of Albany
college; John Cavanagh, past
Oregon student body vice-presi
dent, and Maxwell Morris.
National defense may not be up
to the anticipated results, but
Professor Breen has at least done
his part.
Rifle Class Startled
By Falling Building
Captain Harvey Blythe’s wom
ens rifle class shuddered witn ap
prehension as the ominous creak
of rending timbers filled the
ROTC target range and one of
the beams supporting the roof
The girls, unable to keep fir
ing, could only huddle in mute
terror as the roof of the barracks
settled a full three inches.
While the aged and rickety
building is still intact, it is very
probable that the roof may con
tinue to settle and assume the
sort of skyline made famous by
swaybacked horses.
Colonel R. M. Lyon, head of
the military science department,
said th^.t the cause of the acci
dent has not been determined.
There are rumors of sabotage,
however, as well as the possibil
ity that some feminine marksman
may have sent a stray bullet into
the timber unknowingly.
