Club Hears Prexy
Acting President Orlando J.
Hollis spoke Thursday noon at a
meeting of the Corvallis Rotary
club. His topic was: “Personal
Glimpses of the Constitutional
Convention of 1787.’’
'Have Time’ At
People came in by shifts of 100
at a time! The porch and steps
were loaded with women waiting
to get in. The welcoming commit
tee at the door of the “YW” bun
galow, with armfuls of tempting
coke bottles, was unable to hand
out the refreshments quickly
enough. The girls behind the shiny
black bar were frantically slap
ping dozens of drinks on the board.
No exaggeration: the annual
freshman party sponsored by the
YWCA to acquaint new girls with
the activities of that organization
was, as President Joan Dolph has
aptly put it, “A red-hot good suc
Evidently, Jo Dolph practiced
what she preached in her new
booklet, ‘‘How to be Red-Hot
Good,” which first appeared on the
campus yesterday afternoon. More
than 200 coeds came to the party
to satisfy their curiosity about the
inside of the intriguing little vol
ume in its gay green and yellow
Emily Rhodes played back
ground music on the piano while
the girls chatted and ‘‘floaters”
flitted around the open fireplace
from group to group of coke-sip
ping coeds, asking whether they
were enjoying themselves and sug
gesting with subtle smiles that
they join the “Y.” Arranged by
Martha Thorsland the program
consisted of a chalk talk by Betty
Householder-—doing the talking;
Jcene Johnson — doing the chalk
ing, and Jean Kirkwood providing
Besides Lois Greenwood with a
big smile, and Jo Dolph looking
bright-eyed and triumphant, sev
eral members of the “Y” advisory
board were present: Mrs. V. N.
Freeman, chairman; Mrs. Jessie H.
Bond, Mrs. F. E. Smith, and Miss
R. Louise Fitch. Mrs. Evelyn
Street was a guest of the board.
Council Discusses Mixers;
Calls for Student Union Head
What the ASUO executive council did Thursday night:
1. Opened petitions for four student positions.
2. Passed a resolution requiring the council approval of all
ASUO expenditures over $25.
3. Discussed re-opening of Wednesday night mixers.
4. Discussed exchange assembly
with Oregon State.
5. Picked a rally squad head.
A new student union head will
be selected by the executive council
after interviews Thursday after
noon. Only upperclassmen will be
considered for the office. Last year
the student union committee was
revived after several years’ dor
mancy and definite plans for rooms
and services were begun under the
direction of Gene Conklin, chair
The position of sophomore repre
sentative to the council has been
thrown open because of the resig
nation of Leon Williams spring
term last year. Only persons who
have attended the University two
terms and have a minimum of 24
credits and a maximum of 73 are
eligible to apply.
After considerable discussion on
the advisability of selecting a yell
king this term, the council elected
to pick two men as members of the
rally squad and either put one in
as yell king winter term when he
had acquired .more experience, or
wait until spring term elections
when the position will be on the
All petitions for the four offices
must be turned in to Jean Taylor,
second vice president of the ASUO,
by Thursday and applicants will be
interviewed at the council meeting
Funds Require Vote
On recommendation of Audrey
Holliday, ASUO president, the
council passed a resolution provid
ing that all expenditures in excess
of $25 shall be voted upon by the
executive council and that all
requisitions upon ASUO funds
must be signed by the ASUO presi
dent. As the constitution stood, the
president alone was responsible for
all funds. As Miss Holliday ex
plained at the meeting, this pro
vision was written when all ASUO
money came from the educational
activities board and was budgeted
by that board. The ASUO card
drive has made it possible for the
council to run on its own funds,

take place Tuesday evening, October 3, at 7:30 p.m. in room
107 in Friendly hall, for which all regularly enrolled University
students, including freshmen, are eligible. The nature and pur
pose of the symposium and topics which will be taken up this

group devotes one term to study of
significant social, political, or eco
nomic problems, through study,
field trips, and lectures from au
thorities, and two terms to public
Last year the topic was "Juve
nile Delinquency.” Members made
65 engagements and spoke to more
than 8000 people. Previous mem
btrs who are again planning to
participate are Beverly Carroll,
Louise Fletcher, Alice Harter,
Esther Quier, and Sue Stater.
The symposium program was or
ganized in 1932 by W. A. Dahlberg,
now division head, to replace inter
collegiate debate by training in
actual audience situations. Several
institutions have since adopted
] similar programs.
