Armed Forces Seek Men For Meteorology Courses ° 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 serices that unviersities can give the armed forces, the university meteorology committee has been organized with Professor C. G. Rossby of the University of Chi cago as chairman. This committee has set up a joint meteorological recruiting boards at the University of Chi cago in order to centralize and standardize th;e recruitment of candidates for advanced training, and in order to promote the prep aration by all colleges and univer sities, of the greatest number of men and women for the advanced courses. Large Number The advanced class which will start in January urgently needs Campus USO Drive Proceeds Play Part in Send-off Party By ARLISS BOONE 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 tee. 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 ll 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 left. 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.” ii The World’s News Seen Through The Christian Science Monitor An International Daily Newspaper Published by THK CHRISTIAN' SCIENCE I’l'llI.ISHI.VG SOCIETY’ One, Norway Street, Boston, Massachusetts is Truthful — Constructive — Unbiased — Free from Sensational ism — Editorials Are Timely and Instructive, and Its Daily Features, Together with the Weekly Magazine Section, Make the Monitor an Ideal Newspaper for the Flome.
