'St. Mark’ Pays Tribute
To Firsf UO Casualty
Dedicating their last perform
ance to First Lieut. Jens H. Han
one of the first students to
be killed in action, the “Eve of
St. Mark's” cast will give their
last show when the curtain rises
tonight at 8 p.m. in Johnson hall.
Lieut. Hansen, who was “one
of the first to go and first to,
die,” as the dedication states,
was killed in an airplane crash in
Africa on October 29, 1942. He
was a student dramatist, his last
appearance at the University in
the original production of the
Guild hall theater, a musical
comedy, “With Fear and Trem
bling,” in which he did a satiri
cal portrait of Hitler.

Frosh Pants
Get Kicked
By Soph Men
The sophomobb class has its
tights, and executives of the class
rose up Thursday night to
demand those rights, namely,
the tradition that a sophomore
tvears moleskin or blue jean
pants while a lowly fre/.hman
spends his life in tin pants.
The question of underclass
men’s trousers was thoroughly
discussed at the sophomore ex
ecutive committee meeting, and
it was decided that too many
freshmen daily clutter up the
campus in the uniform of sopho
mores—blue jeans or moleskins.
According to the sophomores,
the governor of the state of Ore
gon in a warrant designated
that moleskins and blue jeans
are the official pants of sopho
more men at the University of
“Skull and Dagger, sophomore
men's honorary, has agreed to di
rect enforcement of the tradition.
Starting Monday, offenders will
be dealt with accordingly,” Bob
Henderson, president of the class
of ’45 stated Friday.
Considering that tin pants are
no longer available at all stores,
the sophomores decided that
cruise blues would be permissible
for freshman attire.
Upon completion of school they
will report to officers’ candidate
school for three months, at the
end of which they will be com
missioned second lieutenants.
This was revealed by Col. C. L.
Sampson, officer in command of
Oregon’s military department, in
announcing the new program the.
war department has set up for
college students enrolled in ad
vanced ROTO courses.
Seniors who are not in the ERfJ
but are advanced ROTC students;
will be given the opportunity to
report to the army induction cen
ter in Portland, at their own ex
pense, for voluntary induction..
This induction will take place be
tween April 5 and 9. Upon en
listment these students will be on
the same status as those who had
previously joined the ERC, and
upon graduation will be sent to ;>■
branch service school.
ROTC juniors will be called to
active duty at the same time am
the seniors. They will remain in
school till the end of the current
school year as an enlisted man,
the grade of which has not yet
been made public, and will receive
the pay assigned to their grade.
Upon completion of the school
year they will go to an army re
placement center for a period of
thirteen weeks, where they will
receive training that is equivalent
to second year advanced ROTC.
When they successfully complete
these thirteen weeks they will be
given the opportunity to go to an
