A band of Washington State Cougars from the rolling hills

Fire Chief Sleeps
As House Burns
Campbell club members had
been warned they were going to
have a fire drill. When it came
at 1:30 Friday morning, they
were not surprised.
But they were surprised when
they turned out because of a real
fire—not in the house, but in
Taylor’s restaurant next door.
Most astonished of all was
President J. Wes Sullivan who
was supposed to ring the alarm
for the “drill.” Sullivan was
sound asleep.

Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?
And so he said to her, “Will
you sit this black out with me?”
Lights began to blink last night
a little before 9 o’clock in most
campus buildings and living or
ganizations. Within 15 minutes
the campus, like the rest of Eu
gene, was in darkness. Vvnen the
real call sounded, many persons
mistook it for the “all clear” sig
nal, which was not sounded for
about half an hour.
Women’s Houses
One women’s living organiza
tion sold cokes out of the house
coke machine to passersby, who
were, momentarily stalled by
blackout regulations which pro
vided that motorists stop their
cars and that pedestrians do not
cross streets.
‘All Out*
Contacted late last night, Her
schel R. Taylor, blackout direc
tor, commented that the reaction
in Eugene “far exceeded our ex
pectations.” “In fact,” he said,
“many persons wrent far beyond
our requests. We asked them to
pull their blinds, but most homes
turned out their lights entirely.”
He cited the cooperation of the
Eugene citizens as an indication
of “the willingness of the Amer
ican people to cooperate whcm
they see a job that has to be
Speaking of campus coopera
tion, he said it was “practically
perfect.” The ROTC officers "did
a good job. Their work in stop
ping cars was particularly com
He expressed the thanks of the
Lane county defense council to
the University military depart
ment, building janitors, and liv
ing organizations for their co
‘Entire Success’
All outlying districts had not
reported at 11 p.m. last night,
Taylor said, but towns as far as
Cottage Grove and Florence had
reported successful blackouts. He
expressed the belief that the en
tire county had been successfully
blacked out. In Cottage Grove a
night football game was stopped,
he said.
Possibilities that there would
be a repeat performance of last
night's blackout were expressed
by Taylor. "However,” he ex
plained, "We have no way of
knowing when the next blackout
will be. It will depend to a great
extent on the turn of interna
tional affairss.”
Off With Fuzz
For Tonights
Whisker Hop
That sophomore with the bare
ly fuzzy face need not be embar
rassed at the Whiskerino to
night. That sophomore with the
bushy black beard may wear it
to the dance and be proud.
It was Jim Thayer, whisker
ino chairman, who saved the day
for the sketchily-bearded men
when he announced last night
that sophomores, except house
representatives to the whisker
contest, could shave before com
ing to the dance.
Dance Time
Dance time is 9 p.m. in McAr
thur court. Sophomores with class
cards, who are entitled to a 25
cent reduction on the $1.40 tick
ets must make arrangements be
fore noon today in the education
al activities office in McArthur
