At UO Hops
Big name bands will be banned
from the University of Oregon
campus "for the duration.”
This was decided in the form of
a motion at the student affairs
committee meeting Tuesday, an

of the committee in its considera

1. "To stress economy of expen
2. "To stress economy of ef
3. "To stress simple informal
dances in small groups rather
than large dances, and to elim
inate big name bands.”
It should be understood, said
Dean Onthank, that the interpre

will occur as requests for schedul

The members of the committee,
from many discussions with stu
dents, believe that the students
themselves, although feeling in
need of continuing the normal op

recognize the need for economy
of funds and for giving time to
studies and defense activities, and
will welcome adjustment of a so
cial program to meet these needs.

fairs committee are:
Karl W. Onthank, dean of per
sonnel administration, chairman
of the committee: Virgil D. Earl,

An opportunity for Oregon students to work on the business
and advertising staffs of the Emerald is now available, Fred 0.
May, business manager, said last night in announcing a meeting
of interested persons at 7:30 tonight in 105 journalism.
In describing opportunities for work, May called the Em
erald “an ideal training ground for advertising and pro
motional work. Not the least of
its values is the opportunity it
gives students to make valuable
contacts, both on the campus and
in downtown Eugene,” he said.
Most jobs are available in lay
out, office, and local advertising
work. Advertising professors
have recommended local advertis
ing work on the Emerald as ex
cellent preparation for their
courses, Betty Jane Biggs, newly
appointed advertising manager,
said. Students working in this
field get a great deal of experi
ence in actual selling, she ad
Experience in shorthand, typ
ing, and filing is available in the
office work field.
Layout work is available to
persons with experience in the
field, May said, suggesting that«».
persons without experience here,
start in the local advertising field.
Positions are also open for a
circulation and classified adver
tising managers, May said. Lars
Bob Gilson, who has been circula
tion manager, is now employed in
that capacity by the Eugene
Daily News, May reported, offer
ing this as proof that “it pays to
work on the Emerald.”

the front of the skirt and blouse—very feminine like. A girdle
piece fits snugly about the waist, and forms ties in the back. The
skirt is gored in back for fullness. Short sleeves and a plunging
neckline, touched off by a jeweled pin which is the finishing item
on this “Harbinger of Spring.”
