Athletic Board Session Clears
Month’s Outstanding Business
The athletic board in monthly session last night wiped its
slate of the following business:
1) Declared that students who lose their athletic cards must
pajr$2 for a reissue fall and winter terms, $1 for spring term
2) Approved taking of the newly-organized ROTC drill team
to Portland for half-time drill at the Oregon State game Armis
3) Gave official sanction to the basketball, baseball, track
and swimming schedules for the year.
4) Approved plans for completely fencing the entire Hay
ward field area along the ROTC shack side in order to decrease
damage to the field by interlopers.
5) Discussed plans for the Frosh-Rook game in Portland
Friday night, with special attention to rally attractions.
Visitor on the campus for last night’s three-hour session in
the physical education building was Clarence Codding, presi
dent of the Portland alumni association, who outlined plans
f^r the Friday night game.
Putting teeth into the number one item, that of reissue of
cards, the board made provision for gate lists of lost cards.
If students are found using cards for which reissues have been
made, regular University discipline will take its course.
The meeting last night was the regular October action of
the University’s faculty-student athletic board.
The ball is on the 40,
Magee makes 20 yards.
They place it on the 17,
They substitute the guards.
To you who teach announceis,
They’re really pretty bad.
Please stop a’teaching adjectives,
And teach them how to add.

To Work Out
Heads of all living organiza
tions will meet at 4 p.m. today
in 107 Commerce to consider
plans for participation in Homc
ing activities. Leaders of all cam
pus living organizations, men’s
and women’s, Greek and indepen
dent, will meet.
Today’s meeting is an outgrowth
cf a decision made Thursday by
the Interfraternity council to
back the heads of all houses on
their Homecoming decision. The
council had previously asked the
educational activities depart
ment for a $25 expense account
to help pay expenses incurred in
the building of house signs and
noise parade floats.
If today’s group agrees to pro
ceed with their Homecoming
plans without the expense money,
refused Monday night by the ed
ucational activities board, the In
terfraternity council will cooper
ate with them, A1 Hunt, council
secretary, said after the council
meeting Thursday night.
However, if today’s group sug
gests a “better idea” for a
Homecoming celebration, the
council will probably support
them in that, Hunt said.
One of the principal objections
to the established system of spon
soring the sign contest and noise
parade, Hunt said, was the nec
essarily great expense to the in
dividual houses. He pointed out
that it was often necessary for
houses to go to Portland at con
siderable expense to obtain scrap
iron, locomotives and other
equipment for the noise parade.
He also cited the frequent com
plaints of Eugene residents and
local hospitals because of the

‘Fighting Frosh’ to Settle
Policies of Class Tuesday
By BOB FRAZIER
The Class of 1945, already showing signs of becoming poli
tics-weary, will meet again next Tuesday evening at 7:30 in
the music auditorium to adopt a set of by-laws, and to nominate
officers, Jim Frost, ASUO first vice-president, announced last
The executive committee, which meets today, will appoint a
by-law committee from the freshman class as a whole to draft
a set of by-laws to submit to the assembled freshmen next
By-laws adopted by the class at a now-invalidated meeting
October 2, were ruled out by the ASUO executive committee
Monday, October 6. The executive committee is empowered to
pass upon by-laws adopted by class organizations.
Old Action Nulliifed
Nominations made at the October 2 meeting were declared
invalid by the ASUO judiciary committee in a decision released
Friday. The Judiciary group met to hear evidence on the case,
after protests had been filed with it asking if due notice of
the time and place of the meeting had been published.
Persons intending to be nominated at the assembly
next Tuesday will be required to file declaration of intention
to run and certification of scholastic eligibility in the ASUO
office in McArthur court before the assembly convenes.
Causes Hub Bub
It was this requirement that caused so much consternation
and misunderstanding at the October 2 meeting, after it was
discovered that many persons at the meeting had not under
stood this requirement.
Certain groups had planned to file protests to the ASUO
judiciary committee, using this requirement as a basis for their
protest, since some persons might assume that all freshmen
are scholastically eligible, as no grades have been given out
yet. But such a protest was never filed.
Frost said last night that he expected freshman elections
would be held about Tuesday October 21, if complications did
not develop in the present political scene.
