moisture fell through the cold
sub-freezing air which constitut
ed the fringes of the out-going
high pressure area.
Gets Warmer
“After this was replaced by
warmer air, and rain still fell, it
hit on ground' objects all at be
_^«cw freezing temperatures, and
immediately formed an icy glaze.
This was broken only when the
rain grew warm enough and fell
in great enough quantities to neu
tralize the temperature of the
objects it fell on. Wednesday eve
ning’s comparatively warm rain
broke the cold spell,” Mr. Stovall
Although these glaze periods
seldom last more than 3 days and
usually only a few hours, they
are about the most destructive
weather conditions we have, in
the opinion of Mr. Stovall.
Worst Hit

The trees that really under
went the most damage were those
with brittle woods such as the
cotton woods, locust and cedars.
Mr. Stovall expressed a profound
admiration for the sturdy Doug
las fir which “stood up about the
best of all.”
"Most Of the three will grow
again, unless they were split
clear to the base,” Mr. Stovall
^declared. He said the reason
many trees in the parkings fell
over completely, was because one
side of their roots had been cut
for the installation of sidewalks.
He pointed out that these trees
usually fell into the street.
Mr. Stovall, who is also the ci
vilian pilot coordinator, revealed
that the glaze condition is an old
story to pilots. He recalled a plane
which landed in Eugene in 1929,
during the last “silver thaw"
which was “really a honey,”
which had ice five inches thick
on the leading edge of the wing
as well as being completely coat

Small Fire Hits
Pi Phi House
Fire in-the waste chute of the
Pi Beta PKi house, 1518 Kincaid
street, Tuesday caused but slight
damage to the house, merely
blistering and smoking the paint
in the Pi Phi pantry. The blaze,
discovered at about 1:30, was
extinguished within 20 minutes
by city firemen. Members of the
house had the fire under control
before firemen arrived, according
to Pi Phi President June Tyler.
Ray Hicks, assistant fire chief,
said that the Tire was probably
caused by a lighted cigarette or
match. The fire was discovered
by houseboys when they opened
the chute to discard refuse, and
found flames which had mounted
from the basement.
This is the sixth campus fire
this year. Others who had fires
were the Sigma Alpha Mus, the
SAEs, the Alpha Chis (two fires),
and the Alpha Delta Pis.
Not disturbed by the fire or
the presence of two city fire
trucks, the Pi Phis remained at
third story windows to chat and
laugh with friends on the side
walks bejow.
