Thirty-one students and two

tend the Order of the “O” swing
session as guests of honor this
noon on the steps of Fenton hall.
Jim Rathbun, “O” president,
compiled the list Monday and
Tuesday, and has issued strict in
structions to all tradition violat
ors to appear for their punish
ment or receive an extra hack for
each day they fail to appear.
"After the first day they don’t
show,” Rathbun proclaimed, “the
boys will be hot on their
trail, and the punishment will be
doubly stiff.”
Don Kirsch, “O” secretary, is
to be on hand to check off the
names of the evildoers as they
receive their just desserts. All
guests of honor are expected to
appear at 12:30, and hacking will
begin five minutes later.
On Thursday the pool between

failed to observe the rules will be
ducked therein.

Canoe Fete Threatened
ByJFIood-Drained Race
The Junior Weekend canoe fete on the millrace, 29-year-old
University tradition, may be abandoned in 1942 for lack of
water in the millrace, according’ to D. L. Lewis, superintendent
of the physical plant.
During the recent flood in the Willamette river 70 feet of the
millrace retaining wall at Judkins point washed out. With this
gone the water has flowed from
the millrace until it has almost
drained and will soon be dry.
At present the owners of the
millrace, the Eugene Excelsior
mill and the woolen mills, do not
plan to rebuild the wall until late
May or early June when the river
will be low.
Pat Cloud, junior class presi
dent, said that unless the mill
race is repaired it will be diffi
cult to stage a canoe fete, but
that if a plan at all within reason
can be worked out the canoe fete
will take place.
The class president stated,
"The wall may be repaired tem
porarily in order to make the
fete possible if the cost of this
is not too great. The financing of
such repairs would have to come
from private sources. But if it
is at all possible there will be a
canoe fete.’’
Architects will start work on
the race in connection with the
changes already planned after
the first of the year, but it is very
doubtful that this work can be
finished in time for the fete.
This is the second time Jupiter
Pluvius has played havoc with
Junior Weekend plans. In 1911,
when Ruth Gibson was elected
the first Junior Weekend queen
her coronation had to be can
celled because of rain.

Torgeson Beat
In Political Bet;
To Talk for ISA
A soap box located squarely
between Oregon and Commerce
building at 11 o’clock Friday
morning will be the scene of one
of the strangest political speeches
ever delivered on the Oregon
campus. Lou Torgeson, ASUO
president, will be paying off a
The bet, between Torgeson
and Steve Worth, independent
leader, concerned the number of
independents who would turn out
for the mass meeting last night.
The one whose guess was the
wilder by actual count of the
door list agreed to make a public
speech at the aforementioned
spot, favoring his opponent’s po
litical connections.
After chewing his finger nails
to the knuckle and composing
several speeches Worth was hap
py to learn that he had won the
bet. Torgeson is saving his com
ments for his speech Friday.
Dads’ Weekend
Petitions Due
Deadline for petitions for Dads’
day and Love and Marriage chair
manships has been extended to
5 p.m. today, Lou Torgeson,
A S U O president, announced
Tuesday. The deadline was moved
up because of vacations and the
lack of Emeralds to publicize the
Only one person has applied so
far to be Dads’ day chairman,
and there have been no applica
tions for the Love and Marriage
series, Torgeson said.
If sufficient petitions are re
ceived by either Torgeson or
Bette Morfitt, ASUO secretary
treasurer, the executive commit
tee will interview candidates for
the Dads’ day position Thursday.
He said there was a possibility
that a part of the committee
might interview candidates for
the other chairmanship Thursday.
I Hope it's Sunny
I like the weather now-a-days
When autumn leaves are near.
Don’t you feel the call of na
ture when
The days are crisp and clear ?
With temperature at 32
The trees bleak and forbidding,
I sit behind my cozy desk,
And wonder who I’m kidding.
Not Greeks,
But Outlaws
Flayed by ISA
“TNE must go.”
With these words Steve
Worth, independent leader,
last night lifted what might
have been an ordinary pep
meeting to an epochal spot in
University political history.
In his opening address to
the Independent Students'
association in the Igloo, Worth
made the first open attack
against Theta Nu Epsilon, out
law Greek letter society. Never
before on the Oregon campus had
the organization been mentioned
openly. Other schools, however,
have frequently brought the.
group out of the cellar to occupy
a focal spot in political struggles'.
Declaring that the organization
was ‘‘not organized for the best
interests of the students at
large,” Worth said that "We aro
not opposed to recognized Greek
organizations,” but that the new
Independent Students’ association
was opposed to this. ‘‘clique of
selfish campus politicians.”
Elections of ISA officers nom
inated last night will be held
Tuesday. Nominees are:
For freshman representative:
Fritz Giesecke, Audrey Holliday,
Ralph Johnson, Harold Locke,
and Bill Pilsbury.
For sophomore representative:
Franky Nelson and Fritz Tim
For junior representative:
Johnnie Kahananui, Elaine Lee,
George Mosher, and Mildred Wil
For senior representative: War1-*
ren Phillips.
For representatives from the
campus at large: Marvin Gome,
Gerald Huestis, Milton Small, and
Erwin Snyder.
