Armed Forces Seek Men

All University students interested in training for meteor
ology, whether they are now qualified for the advanced course
in the subject or not, are being urged to contact A. F. Mour
sund. head of mathematics department, or W. V. Norris, act
ing head of the physics department, in order to make the
number of possible Oregon candidates for the course known
to the University of Chicago
where the joint meteorological
board is located.
Students chosen for the course
will go to a training center
where they will be classed as avi
ation cadets, non-flying status.
Urgent Need
Because of the urgent need for
meteorologists, and in order to
more efficiently coordinate the

the armed forces, the university
meteorology committee has been
organized with Professor C. G.
Rossby of the University of Chi

Campus USO Drive Proceeds
Play Part in Send-off Party
Last Tuesday, November 10, the first of the cigarettes
from the campus USO drive were used for the draftees leav
ing Eugene at a send-off party given them at noon, according
to Rohda Harkson, chairman of the drive.
As the 28 newly-inducted soldiers from "Lane county were
given a farewell gift of cookies, candy, cigarettes and maga
zincs they seemed just a little
surprized, but a good deal hap
pier. Send-off parties will be held
about once a week.
Draftees Get Fags
Cigarettes from the drive will
be used hereafter only for draft
parties. The student war council
has decided against sending any
to Camp Adair. Soldiers can get
them for 6 cents while the draf
tees, not yet actually in the army,
are still on civilian privileges.
About 35 of the 2,022 packages
collected on the campus were
used, the others will be given out
little by little as the boys leave.
The magazines given were from
the box in Claypool’s drug store,
collection depot of the campus.
Magazines and books are still
welcomed by the USO commit
USOers at the station were
Mrs. Kelly, director of the USO
in Eugene, Dean Karl W. On
tliank, Dean Hazel P. Schwering,
Len Barde, chairman of the stu
dent war council, Florence Ham
ilton, Marion Schaefer, and Roh
da Harkson, chairman for the
USO on the campus.
Norma Trevorrow was to be
a member of the party, but, by
necessity was late. The photog
rapher took her bicycle to arrive
on time to get pictures.
At first shy and a little timid,
the future army men spoke free
ly about themselves, their mili
tary life to be, and everything
but their destination, which is
unknown even to them.
As his last gesture before leav
ing. one of the boys carefully en
trusted Miss Harkson with two
big folders, trusting in her to
mail them after the train had
The boys and the seeing-off
party were in good spirits when
the train finally pulled out. One
sailor leaned out of the window,
trying frantically to find some
one on the platform who knew
his only acquaintance in town.
When he did, he yelled back, “For
gosh sakes, tell her that her bro
ther came through and will be
back Sunday.”
