Piggers Okay
At Corvallis
Piggers got a big break, but
only a temporary one, last night
when Signe Eklund, president of
AWS, announced that dating
would be legal for the game
with the Beavers Saturday.
The announcement was made
by Miss Eklund in the absence
of a campus social chairman.
Social policy for all campus
affairs in the future will be made
through this office which was a
wartime casualty and is being
reestablished this term.
The policy for Saturday’s
game was set after conference
with faculty and student leaders,
but Miss Eklund stressed the
point that this is a temporary
measure and is not to be con
strued as a final declaration of
- acceptable social action.

Emerald Wins All-American
No Canoe Fete This Year
Board Decides at Meeting
The Educational Activities board in a meeting Monday
night wrote finis to any plans for the resurrection of the pre
war canoe fete as an integral part of this year’s Junior Weekend.
At Monday’s meeting it was decided that in view of the State
Highway Commission’s plans to let contracts for the construe
tion 01 tne new nignway be
tween J u cl k i n s point and
Broadway it was inadvisable
to set a definite course of ac
tion at the present time.
The project was reviewed
and the manager was directed
to save as much as possible
from this year’s budget to add
to the $15,000 already set aside for
the filling of the old channel, con
struction of bleachers on the south
side of the race, construction of a
stage on the north side, and gen
eral improvement of the site with
the cooperation of the highway
The board is determined to have
the work completed at the earliest
possible time but the prohibitive
cost of materials and labor at the
present preclude any possibility of
the project’s completion by spring
The board also let a contract to
the San Carlo Opera company for
the presentation of “Carmen” on
February 5, 1946.
Printing of 2700 copies of the
1946 Oregana was authorized, and
the additional paper needed for
the annual was ordered.
Authorizations for the printing
of the Emerald, and 2600 “Piggers
Guides” were granted before the
board adjourned.

Ducks May Wing
To OSC Via Trucks
Due to the prevailing bus
drivers strike, it is quite evident
that some other method of trans
portation to porvallis for the U
of O-OSC game must be utilized.
A remedy for this situation is in
sight. There are trucks available
to cary students to and from the
game. At the College Side Inn
and the Co-op are survey sheets
to be signed by the students in
terested. Those organizations
wishing to travel in a body are

paper week, in recent years, held
in recognition of the services of
the press during the war years and
with the hope of altering the pub
lic attitude of taking newspapers
for granted, ended October 8. Six
teen inches of space promoting the
prgram were contributed by the
Emerald during the past week,
which marked the sixth annual na
tional observance.
Newspaper week is sponsored
by the Newspaper Association
Managers and the extent of the
program in each community is de
termined by the publishers them
selves. One of the best observances
given in any newspaper in the
state was shown by the Eugene
Register-Guard, according to Carl
C. Webb, director of the Oregon
Newspaper Publishers association.
The Guard held open bouse four
evenings and afternoons during
the week, playing host to approxi
mately 1200 visitors. This local
daily gave 320 column inches for
news stories, editorials, and pic
tures on newspaper week.
Feature articles on "Freedom of
the Press” were written for the
Guard by George Turnbull and

associate professor of journalism,

necessary to conduct tours, there

extensive promotion sponsored, for
