Cascade Train Wreck
Delays UO Southerners
A slide of snow and mud, hurtling down the slope of Salt
Creek canyon in the Cascade mountains about 87 miles south
of Eugene, Sunday night crashed into the dining car of a north
bound Southern Pacific passenger train, killing one and injur
ing 14. The wreck has delayed the arrival of California stud
ents at the University for over 24 hours, partially explaining
the low number of first-day regis
trants for winter term.
Cause of most of the casualties
was a tree trunk borne along by
the slide as it crashed into a din
ing car, killing Frank R. Pilcher,
51, of 519 South Ninth street,

Mint Requests U 0 Students
Aid in Circulation of Pennies
By assisting the nation’s undertaking to return to circulation
the idle coins, especially pennies, which many persons are sav
ing or hoarding, University students can play an important
part in the war effort, according to a letter to the student body
from the director of the mint at Washington, D. C.
Because of the critical shortage
in this country of certain metals
that are now acutely needed for
cartridges, ships, airplanes, and
other equipment which members
of the armed forces must have to
win the war, these hoarded coins
must be replaced with scarce me
tals which are a necessity to the
war effort.

Few Annuals
Left on Shelf
Fewer than 100 Oreganas re
main to be sold and late regis
tration sales still to come, Jeff
Kitchen, student activities man
ager, announced Monday. ASUO
card returns also exceeded ex
pectations, even though the foot
ball season is over.
Both athletic cards and annu
als may be purchased at the late
registration tables in Johnson
hall from 8 to 12 a.m. and from
1 to 3 p.m.
ASUO cards will be sold at
$6.60 for the rest of the school
year, while Oreganas will be
raised to $5.50 after January 20.
However a down payment of $3
will reserve a copy at the present
rate of $5.
Kitchen advised students wish
ing to secure an annual to make
a down payment during late reg
istration, emphasizing, “In all
probability none at all will be left
to sell at spring registration.”
He explained the unusual
amount of sales so early in the
year by citing such facts as con
tracts placed early, “an excel
lent editorial staff” and a top
ranking Oregana last year. He
also stressed that students will
receive their copies by mail at
home, if they are called from
school during the term.
