    Donated Dollars Aid Students;
WSSF Operates Rest Homes
A “chalet” for rundown and tubucular students from liberat
ed France is an example of the destination of the dollars collect
ed from University of Oregon students during the current
World Student Service fund will go. The center recently was
opened at Combloux in the Haute Savoie region of France, and
already 50 students, mostly from
Paris, are spending from one to
three months in the quiet, invigo
rating mountain atmosphere.
During, ,the .German occupation,
curriculum and professors i n
French universities were strictly
regulated. The Vichy government
called up a large proportion of the
student population for deportation
to Germany. Many escaped and
joined the French Forces of the In
terior (FFI). Others did forced la
bor in German work camps or re
ceived prison sentences.
Students Ilun Down
As a result of such hardships'
and the severe food shortage, most
students today- are1imiidnwn • in
health and suffer from nervous dis

Typical among students who
have been treated, at -the Combloux
Chalet and I'etu'i hell Vir studies is
a 19-year-old medical student, who,
while Caen was a center of fight
ing, shouldered the burden of nurs
ing 180 patients at Caen hospital.
After six weeks he contracted a

that would have kept him from
finishing his studies,*, ,,

posed schedule has been set up for
the student starting at 9 o’clock
in the morning and ending at 10
at night with a two-hour rest per
iod in the afternoon. A social and
cultural program is conducted to
avoid mental stagnation and to
stimulate thought.
Other chelts patterned after the

for European students. This work
is made partly possible by contri

Group Insurance
Two separate group insurance
plans for prepaid medical and hos^ i
pital care were announced in the
October 16 issue of the faculty
news bulletin. All University em
ployes, including faculty members,
physical-plant employes, and ad
ministrative personnel, are elig
The Northwest Hospital Service
plan (Blue Cross), covers only
hospital service, and the Eugene
hopital and clinic plan covers both
medical and hospital service.
Staff members joining either of
these groups may make payments
by payroll deductions in the busi
ness office. Under both plans,
membership will be accepted at
stated quarterly dates.
The availability of these plans is
an outgrowth of recent investiga
tions of the AAUP insurance com
mittee on the campus, headed by
Hoyt Franchere of the English de
partment. Originally, only em
ployes of the University library
had a contract with the Blue Cross
plan, but, through the efforts of
the insurance companies, this ser
vice was expanded to include, all.
faculty members and employes.
Next membership date for the
Blue Cross plan is November 1,
while the Eugene Hospital plan
membership date is December 1.
Mrs Margaret Hutchison, payroll
clerk, business office, may be con
tacted for further information.
UO Launches
GPA Campaign
A new policy of disqualification
aimed at improving standards of
scholarship and removing -non
productive students is now under
consideration by the committees
on advising and scholarship, Clif
ford L. Constance, assistant regis
trar, said' Monday.
This policy has been brought
about by students who are on pro
bation and have failed to make a
2 point. GPA average. Students
who are having a second trial
must either produce a satisfactory
average or withdraw from the
university, Constance said. The
new policy will take effect at the
end of the fall term.
The committees effected this
ruling in order to make room for
the returning veterans.
Constance remarked that the
committees are interested in stu
dent reactions to this proposal.
Letters or suggestions may be sent
to the registrar’s office.

of the footlights. He has previous

Returned Webfeets will well re

Seemingly loathe to disclose
facts about himself, ‘‘Judge Fish”
does admit a fondness for physics.
‘‘Of course, I want it clearly un
derstood that my sole interest is

verification he reminded us that
he is a junior major in that parti

light on liis summer occupation,
