Rising Living Costs Result
In Higher Faculty Salary
Rising costs of living caused the state board of higher
education to realize that something must be done for the faculty
of its institutions, the result being a general salary increase,
decided at the board’s meeting here this week.
On salaries of employees and staff members at the Uni
versity receiving $1200 a year, or less there will be an increase
of 25 per cent. For salaries of $1201 to $1799, a 20 per cent in
crease was granted, and a 15
per cent increase was given on
salaries of $1800 and over. Salar
ies over $1800 will receive the
increase only on $1800, or a max
imum increase of $270.
Special Funds
^The increases were made pos
^le by special funds provided by
the last legislature and will go
into effect as of April 1, 1943.
However, it is too late for the in
crease to be added to the checks
for April, hence, the checks for
May, which will be issued June 1,
will include the increase for both
April and May. This is the first
increase in salaries at the Uni
versity in 14 years.
At this April pre-budget meet
ing of the board, a plan was
agreed on which calls for a fur
ther reduction of approximately

A Mouse Can’t
Scare the Women
University women are brave!
Even Miss Anna Thompson, as
sistant proipssor of Romance
languages, admitted that the
girls in her class were brave when
a live mouse brought nothing
more than a few gasps and gig
gles from the feminine members
of the class.
The little mouse streaked un
der the door in a 9 a.m. Spanish
class and ran across the floor be
tween the front row of chairs
and Miss Thompson's desk.
Five girls gasped, chiefly in
surprise, and recitation contin
ued, while two brave men in the
class saved the day by catching
the little animal.

*Enacb Traditional Roles
With the solemn strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” as musical
background, the black-gowned, yellow-tasseled Mortar Boards, monk
robed Friars, and bone-festooned Asklepiads will enact their traditional
roles at Friday’s campus luncheon.
One of the top thrills of their University life is scheduled for sev

ASUO Takes Bow Today
Mist’ May
Put Jinx
On Lunch
Rain, rain go away—the old
jingle particularly rings true for
the all-campus luncheon honoring
mothers, which will be definitely
crossed off the list of Junior
Weekend activities if it rains
late tomorrow night, according
to Frances Johnston, chairman of
the lunch.
“If the grass is wet tonight and
more rain threatens for Friday,
the luncheon will be cancelled;
and the queen’s coronation will
be held at the all-campus sing
Friday night, instead,’’ said Miss
The tapping of new members
for Mortar Board, Friars, and As
klepiads would then have to be a
feature of the Junior Prom, Sat
urday night, she indicated.
A new attraction of the prom
is the appearance of the winners
of the All-Campus Sing, who will
present numbers during' intermis
sion. This has been arranged so
that mothers who are unable to
arrive in time for the sing Friday
night will at least have a chance
to hear the winners, according to
Clarence Horton, Mothers’ Week
end chairman.
Concerning controversy in sev
eral men’s living organizations
as to whether they were to make
lunches for both their mothers
and fathers, the luncheon chair
man has announced that all men's
houses as well as women’s houses
will provide food for their guests.
The- luncheon, which will open’
Mothers’ Weekeend, will be held
Friday noon on the old campus in
front of Friendly hall.
Ice Cream
The YWCA will sell ice cream
during the lunch, according to
Miss Johnston. Lunches should
be packed simply, with all foods
taking up extra bulk and con
tainers being omitted. Members
of houses may go together and
purchase drinks, such as milk,
in five gallon cans,” Miss John
ston added.
Students who need transporta
tion to the campus for their par
ents after they arrive in Eugene,
can still secure it if they contact
Bob Henderson, who is in charge
of transportation fjfr Mothers’
By consulting Alice B. Macduff,
assistant dean of women, students
whose parents have no place to
stay after they reach the campus
can make arrangements for liv

caps and gowns for the proces
sion Friday noon are asked to
