In Song, Dance
The spirit of Russia has been
brought to the United States in
the song and dance of the Don Cos
sacks, directed by Serge Jaroff,
who will perform in Eugene Wed
nesdy, January 31, at 8:15, in Mc
Arthur court. All holders of ASUO
cards will be admitted.
All the color and life that is
Prussia is shown in the Cossacks’
repertoire of more than two hun
dred songs of the church, campfire,
and battlefield. It has been said of
them that “they sing hallelujahs
as if they meant it.”
This year marks the fifteenth
American tour by the Russians,
who are probably better known
than any other group of profes

two performances in the Metropoli

Social Chairman Group
Incorporated by ASUO;
Board Members OK’ed
After two weeks of consider
ation of the group’s problems
and financial troubles, the ex
ecutive council Tuesday voted
to incorporate the social chair
men group into the ASUO. A
resolution provided that the
social chairmen group would be
supervised by the ASUO coun
cil, budgeted on an ASUO bud
get, and may be disbanded by
the executive council whenever
conditions warrant. It was felt
by the council that the end of
the war and the accompanying
return of many all-campus
functions would find such a
group no longer necessary.
The budget for the group may be
utilized only for all-campus func
tions, and the ASUO control would
be extended only for that purpose,
the resolution provided. Previously,
the social chairmen group had gone
in the hole, but after a recent post
game dance, they now have $45 in*
their treasury. This money auto
matically goes into the ASUO trea
sury, while the group was budget
ed for a like amount.
Attending the executive council
was Dorothy Frideger, representa
tive of the social chairmen. She
advised the council that the group’s
purpose was to help solve the prob

lems of the social chairmen, to
bring a closer relationship among
the social chairmen, and to plan
activities to fill in open dates on
the social calendar.

I ransportation Order Cancels
Annual University Celebration;
Ducks Express Opinions of Rule
By FLORA FURROW
Another flame from the candle of campus activities was
quickly extinguished yesterday just a few minutes after nocn
as the Oregon Dads President Gene Vandenynde issued his
official statement cancelling the eighteenth annual Dad’s Da/
weekend because of an ODT ruling to the effect that all con
ferences of 50 or more people after February 1 were to ’ o
Regarding the cancelling ot Dad s Day, Dean of Personnel Karl W.
Onthank, on behalf of the faculty Dad’s Day committee said. Wt*
regret that it has been necessary to call off Dad’s Day this year !• it:
realize a necessity for cooperating with the ODT in curbing travel.
I, for one, am particularly sorry because this year’s student committed
lias done one of the best jobs ever turned out on the campus to pvat
on a good program. It is too bad this program couldn’t have her*
presented for the dads.
As the flicker of rumor to the effect that the Dad's Day would not
be put on this year spread over the Oregon campus and burst into a
conflagration of reality when the official news came through, student,n
on the campus expressed their feelings, remembering that this event
paralleled to some extent the now extinct annual homecoming program
and similar functions and was another crimper blocking the use of
energies and initiative on the part of students. They realized, however,
that such actions are not only necessary but right in wartime and
looked forward, again, to a day of victory when the Oregon campri?!
justifiably can again be alive.
This is what the students thought:
John J. Craig, student chairman of the 1945 Dad's Day progra ;t
I amy very disappointed that the student committee was unable to
produce the program that was planned for the Dads, but all the
members of the Dad's Day committee realize that the right thing
has been done.
All the Dad’s Day committee work and plans are so far ahead i f
schedule that Dad's Day program might have been presented thr;
weekend with ease.
I would like to thank the members of the faculty and the stride t
body for the excellent cooperation that was extended for the 394S»
Dad’s Day program and am sure that no one would have been ub's-t
appointed by the student committee’s program.
Audrey Holliday, ASUO president: Although all of us would lit s
to have our dads with 11s on Dad’s Day, the existing conditions hav»
made it impossible for them to be here. However, every dad may knovV,
that his son or daughter will be thinking particularly of him on tlon
weekend we set aside for him. f think it is especially unfortunate
view of the fact that the present Dad's Day committee had plamu*
such a wonderful weekend.
Signe Eklund, president of Phi Theta Upsilon: It will be a gr< , 1:
disappointment to our dads. They've been looking forward to tb* iir
weekend for a long time as much as we have.
Floyd Fredrickson, freshman class president: I think the dads will
probably come anyway on account of the Oregon-Oregon State basket
ball game which has not been cancelled.
Phyllis Horstman, ASUO vice-president: Calling off Dad’s Day is a'
big disappointment to all of us but we realize that events are bring
called off on other campuses too. I’m sure we sense the necessity cf
it, and will cooperate 100 per cent.
Bernice Granquist, junior class vice-president: Everything possii'h*
should be done to continue our Oregon traditions but if government,
orders make this impossible, we should willingly comply. Perhaps wa
could still carry on Dad's Day on a small scale in Eugene.
George Luoma, spokesman for the Secret Six: When informed of thtt
ODT’s action the Secret Six immediately took the restrictive announce
ment under advisement. Their opinion held the ODT’s message is well
founded on military necessity.
In concluding their conference, the Six unanimously approved 1
resolution which was relayed to Dad's weekend officials: An interesting
