Remain Intact
Early this term students’ vaca
tion dreams were shattered when
press dispatches said that the of
fice of defense transportation was
asking colleges and universities to
eliminate spring vacations. At the
University of Oregon no such re
quest was received, and Acting
President Orlando John Hollis re
iterated this week his earlier state
ment that no change is contem

In Trojan Women’ Drama
“Would ye be wise ye cities, fly from war!”
Cassandra’s maddened cry echoes from Troy’s crashed walls
with a ring of today’s world. The 20th century has brought no
more respite from wars than Euripides knew when he
created “The Trojan Women” in 415 B. C.

Press Says of President
Daily Iowan Staff Writer
You are going to like your new president.
The Daily Iowan would like to send that report to readers
of the Daily Emerald.
Your new president—our dean of liberal arts—is a tall,
friendly man with shoulders like a football player. As a matter
of fact, he played football and basketball for Western Illinois
Teacher’s college. His chief athletic interest at present is walk
ing the floor with his son Michael,
born in late December.
Before Michael, he was an en
thusiastic gardener and fisherman.
About his accomplishments in both
those lines he is modest. Especially
so with fishing. “I understand
folks in Oregon really know how to
go at it," he said. "I’m just an
amateur, so I’ll keep quiet about
fishing when I get out there, and
maybe they’ll teach me."
Good Speaker
Dean Newburn is an effective
public speaker of the facts-rather
than-flowers type. He likes people,
confesses he may even spend too
much time on general conversa
tion. He and Mrs. Newburn enjoy
plays and music. He is a member
of Kiwanis and the SUI faculty
club, and has served as Kiwanis
program chairman.
He is a good news source when
he has a story to give out, because
he lays it on the line simply and
logically and answers questions
frankly and with a jovial, reserved
humor. When you interview him
about himself, though, he keeps
veering to the subject of his
The family, in addition to Mrs.
Newburn, are Jackie, Bob and lit
tle Mike.
Mike (born December 21, 1044*
is the most outspoken of the lot.
He expresses himself firmly and
unmistakeaWy on subjects of cur
rent importance to him. That is
why the dean gets his exercise
walking the floor. ^

Chairman, Editor Jobs
Open to Upperclassmen
Two paying positions, head of
the Oregon federation and editor of
the Orc-nter, are open to upper
classmen, it was announced at the
Wednesday noon meeting of the
ASUO executive council.
The federation chairman main
tains headquarters in Eugene,
travels throughout the state pro
moting Oregon to prospective stu
dents, and is in charge of the an
nual summer picnic at Jantzon
Beach, Portland.
The Ore-nter editor will be in
charge of putting out next year's
edition of the freshman handbook
and must have writing and make
up ability. Petitions will be due at
the end of the first week in spring
week, but nas had tJie squad
working out daily until they left.
The team will work out Friday on
the Cougar court to accustom
themselves to the higher altitude.
The winner of the two out of
three playoffs (next Friday and
Saturday, if necessary), will be
tendered the bid to represent the
the. west coast in the NCAA meet
in Kansas City later this month.
* Tall Fir Hays
Ken Hays, sophomore center, is
troubled with an ankle injury, but.
will probably be able to see action
tomorrow night. He is the on!y
man tall enough on the Oregon
squad to stop the high-scoring
WSC center, Vince Hansen.
In the four games played this
season, Oregon and Washington
State split. The Cougars took the
first one 43-36, and the Ducks
stormed back with a 47-34 second
game win. The process was re
peated on McArthur court with the
Cougars again winning the first
game, this time 54-43, and five
Oregon quint rolling back for a
64-48 victory.
The starting lineups for the two
quints will probably be. the same
as they were in their last tilt, with
Cougar Coach Jack Friel using Ins
letterman five: Joslin and Gregg,
forwards; Hausen, center; Hamil
ton and Rennick, guards. There
has been no announced change n
