Skerry Wins Election
Harry Skerry, senior in law,
was elected to the position of sen
ior representative by a majority
-S|)te of the ASUO executive coun
cil Tuesday.
This position became vacant
when Kay Jenkins, senior in lib
eral arts, was declared ineligible.
Skerry was one of four candidates
nominated from the campus at
-Jarge, whose petitions were con
sidered by the council.
His activity record, as stated in
a nomination sent in by Peter
Howard, junior in law, includes
Vice-presidency of the law school
student body, chairman of the
Wartime fraternity coordinating
committee, and presidency of Phi
Kappa Psi.
The council also discussed the
Question of the formation of a ci
vilian band on the campus which
would be available for large danc
es at McArthur court. At present,
no orchestras are available, since
the army swing band cannot play
at campus dances organized on a
I profit basis.
Jean Page, chairman of the stu
dent coordinating committee, pre
sented a report on the new Wed
nesday night swing mixer plan.
The plan was later approved by
the student affairs committee.
The appointment of Phyllis Horst
man as a member of the student
affairs committee was approved.

Priming Plays
By LOREN SHANK
| Running through new plays in
•preparation for Sunday’s game
with tlie Marshfield 104th caval
ry occupied most of the time in
Thursday’s football practice. Sev
eral new plays, which Coach War
ren has been holding up his sleeve,
have been the main part of the
practices thus far this week and
probably will show up in Sunday’s
game. Several pass plays are com
ing to light along with some nice
running plays.
Injmies suffered by the team
have been kept to a minimum thus
far in the season. Bentivegna,
“Dreamy Eyes” to the players,
has a broken finger but will prob
ably be in at left end during the
game. Lysle Somers still has his
leg bandaged but will be able to
get in the game. Although he
sprained his ankle in the first
game, Bob Pinnick will be in good
condition for the game on Sunday.
.^Sunday's game promises to be a
tough one for the ASTUs as the
“Tankers” will be out for revenge
after losing the initial encounter
of the season. The once before de
feated cavalry team will proba
bly be a much tougher one this
time. With Yohn and Johnson
baugh as the two main cavalry
threats against the ASTUs, Coach
.Warren is not making any pre
dictions on the game. Yohn is very
fast on his feet and Johnsonbaugh
excels as a passer.

Alpha Phis Lead Donations
Only 639 packages of cigarettes have been collected so far in
the war board sponsored cigarette drive, Phyllis Horstman,
chairman of the drive, announced Thursday. The Alpha Phis
are still leading the campus with a total of 87 packages donated
by the end of the second day of the drive.
The larger portion of the cigarettes will be sent to the
American Red Cross station hospital at Camp Adair, Miss
Horstman reported. Carl F. Fors
man, Major, FA, special service
officer, in a letter to Miss Horst
man, said that the cigarettes sent
to Camp Adair would be "for the
u3e of hospital patients.” He add
ed that "the generosity and pa
triotic spirit of your organization
will be appreciated by the dis
abled men.” The men in the hos
pital do not get cigarettes unless
people bring them in to them, he
emphasized.
Around four dozen packages
will also be sent to the USO to be
given to draftees.
Houses which have collected
over 30 packages are: Alpha Chi,

Child Study
Members of the University
symposium have voted to use "Ju
venile Delinquency in the State of
Oregon,” as their discussion topic,
Director Robert D. Clark, stated
Thursday.
Work will be started at once to
find the nature and extent of the
problem in Oregon through cor
respondence with officials in the
state and through material al
ready printed, Clark said. The
group plans to attempt to discov
er the relationship between juven
ile delinquency and the war.
Studies are to be made of vari
ous plans, for both long and short
term remedies, presented by au

Versatile Artist
To Appear Here
That the challenge of a difficult
part acts as a stimulus to Mar
jorie Lawrence, soprano, is indi
cated by several experiences in
her career.
Her flaming portrayal of Oscar
Wilde’s unpleasant heroine in Sa
lome thrilled audiences in Paris
and New York. In previous per
formances one of the ballet girls
had performed the Dance of the
Seven Veils, a difficult, emotional
work, but when Miss Lawrence
took the part, she decided to the
dance herself. She studied the
dance under Yeichi Nimura, great
Japanese dancer and teacher, and
thus gave a complete interpreta
tion of the heroine.
An outdoor girl all her life, she
had early learned to ride horse
back. When it came time during
a “Gotterdammerung" at the
Metropolitan in New York for the

Pre-med aptitude tests will bo
given today from 2 to 4 o’clock in

paid before 2 o’clock today.
This test is being taken by all
pre-med students all over the

Campus Mixers Back Again;
Coeds Adopt Schedule Change
Next Wednesday night the oft-tried, oft-can
celed swing mixers will again grace the campus
social calendar, according to Jean Page, chairman
of the student coordinating committee.
The mixers will follow a new "divide 'em” up
schedule which the committee believes will distrib
ute the actual mixers held, and the campus male
population, in a more satisfactory way.
Since an estimated 650 men, civilian and army
students, attend these mixers, and since the coeds
are about 1200 strong, the committee has W'orkcd
out a semi-monthly scheme to smooth out the un
even distribution.
This is the plan: Every week a mixer will be
held. Girls' living organizations will be divided into
two groups, and men students will be assigned to
group “A" one week, and group "B” the next. Each
women’s organization will thus hold a mixer every
other week, and the civilian and army men may at
tend every week.
The student affairs committee approved two
mixers for the remainder of this term at its Thurs
day meeting. If the plan is a success, the same idea
may be continued for the rest of the year.
The student coordinating committee will meet
Monday to draw up a schedule, which will be an
nounced in Tuesday's Emerald.
Duo to lack of opportunity for
a sufficient number of rehear sal a
before this weekend, the ASTTJ
glee club will be unable to appear
in the program. However, the or
ganization will be prepared to take
part in future entertainments. In.
the meantime, an effort is being
made to find a substitute for this
week’s show.
The scene of the “Campus Sere
nade” has been .set for Gerlinger
hall at 3 p.m.
Plans are being made for tiro
presentation of weekly programs;
similar to the one this week. At
tendance at this first show will
determine the continuation of t3ic
Sunday afternoon serenades. A re
quest for talent volunteers is be
ing circulated among the soldier
students and it is hoped that ci
vilian students may also partici
pate in future shows.
