Scrap Again In Season, *
Says UO War Council
Waste fat, scrap, and paper are
the next items to be collected by
the campus organizations for the
war effort, according to Marge
Curtis and Bill Lilly, who are
taking charge of the salvage de
partment of the student war
council for the campus. Miss Cur
tis and Lilly are assistants to
Len Barde, chairman of the stu
dent war council.
Each living organization will
have one or two representatives
to collect the waste material in
boxes and save it for the collec
tions, they said. Miss Curtis said
that a truck may possibly be
engaged to collect the waste at
certain designated points.
Miss Curtis and Mr. Lilly at
tended a luncheon of the Lane
county war council at the Osborne
hotel. The council praised the
good work done by the students
and asked that they continue the
work. The scrap metal drive was
just the beginning, Lilly empha
sized, not the climax of the cam
pus war work.
Letters to Cooks
The Phi Theta Upsilon girls
under Miss Curtis will take
charge within their own houses,
she said, and other girls will be
appointed for the remaining'
houses. Lilly has organized a list
of men to take charge in the
men's houses.
A special committee, appoint
ed for boarding houses, will pos
sibly send letters to the cooks of
each house urging them to save
all extra waste fat and paper.
This committee will be headed by
Ruth Kay Collins and Ann Rey
The names of all the cooper
ating organizations will be pub
lished regularly. The scrap col
lected will be sold to the butch
ers and scrap dealers in Eugene,
Miss Curtis explained, and the
funds will be given to the serv
ice scholars' fund for the stu
dents returning after the war.

This is a mistaken idea. He can
be called at any time but is left
in school just as long- as he is
not urgently needed. Because a
student who has a great deal of
college education is beter officer
material, the army wants to keep
them in school as long as pos
sible,” stated Prunty.
In the following statement,
Capt. Prunty clarifies any wrong
ideas students may have picked
up from unauthorized sources:
“By the end of 1943 the army
plans to have 7,500,000 men un
der arms. In an army of this size
there is urgent need for many
oficers. The average college man
is much better fitted for these
officer positions than the ordi
nary draftee. Higher education
is given much consideration in
choosing men for officers’ candi
date school. Other factors being
equal, the man with the college
education will ordinarily get the
“The army feels that those who
enlist in the enilsted reserve
corps are officer material. They
must have the scholastic and
mental ability for officers before
they are admitted to the ERC.
After they enlist in the ERC it
is up to the student to keep up
in his grades and scholastic work
so as to prove that they have
what it takes to become officers.”
Prunty also pointed out that

thousand men being commis
