Published daily during the college year except Sundays, Mondays, and holidays tma
final exam periods by the Associated Students, University of Oregon.
Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice, Eugene, Oregon.
Despite the efforts of the student committee, the opinions
■of the faculty, and the criticisms of inactive bystanders, the fate
and future of the proposed student congress lies chiefly with
the 330 University students. Their interest and support are
sought, and their suggestions and opinions as to the structure
of the new constitution will at no time go unweighed.
The various issues have not been settled—ample time and
opportunity remain for every individual with a “two cents” to
pass along to one of the members of the congress committee.
Rather than wasting words of constructive criticism over
bridge tables at the Side, the Webfoots are asked to submit
their ideas in letter form to the Emerald. Subsequently, they
will be read, noted, and considered by the committee and the
majority of the students.
There have been complaints that the business of framing
as important a project as an ASUO constitution should be
shared by a larger portion of the student body. In practicable
application, a greatly enlarged committee would be cumber
some, difficult to assemble at necessary times, and would per
haps degenerate into a combination of factions. The eight
members of the present committee have worked steadily and
in accord to produce a draft for student approval.
,Still a plan, the student congress now deserves the recogni
tion and graphic criticism of the individuals concerned, the stu
dents. Your opinions are valuable. If worth mouthing, they are
worth the consideration of all on the editorial page of the
student newspaper and those who are responsible for drafting
/I 'Vote Iph Stub fecdlati.. . .
Stub ballots added more than an air of importance to the
freshman class elections Tuesday. Combined with a form of
polling booths and proper supervision of the polls by members
of the honoraries, they assured a really secret ballot.
\\ hen a voter entered the polls, he presented his registra
tion card as identification and was checked off the poll books.
The check-off. of course, was necessary to guarantee that no
student voted more than once and that he. was a legitimate
member of the freshman class. After this procedure, he was
given a ballot with one stub torn off and deposited in a locked
box by the board member in charge. When he finished marking
his ballot, he tore off the other numbered stub and deposited it
in a separate box and put the un-numbered ballot into another
The system provides tin accurate check of the total number
of ballots issued without having the drawbacks of numbered
ballots, hurthermore, this type of ballot requires little more
complications in the voting.
Such a simple way of improving the voting system so much
shouldviiot be ignored. Two-stub abbots should be considered
a must-at all future ASUO and class elections.

Finally a place where one can
find the three Boyd Raeburn
Guild’s pressed (or released) to
date: Warren Black’s Jazz Record
Shoppe, in Portland. Two doors
from the Broadway theater, on
Salmon. Two just received here:
“Boyd’s Idea,” Bothwell’s alto, ex
Young; “You Came Along,” Frank
Sokolow’s tenor (tune is actually
“Out of Nowhere”); “March of the
Boyds,” labeled as Raeburn’s own
tune, but written by Milt Kleeb
(you have heard the name, no
doubt) showcase for Bothwell,
“Summertime.” The third record,
which includes “Lonely Melo'dy,”
is much more desirable than either
of these, but all are better than
listening to trancs from the Seat
Boyd has evidently been dropped
from all Langworth-ASCAP ET
devices. He, like Gillespie, was too
much. A shame that as precise a
band musically as this should be
eliminated from the field before
beginning. If you are curious, why
not drop a line to one of the Port
land net affiliates, asking for a
Record reviewing day, being
what this evidently has become,
must include others received, name
ly the Todd things on Pan-Ameri
can (Black also has these; can’t
get them here). “Pom-Pom” is
not a riff-steal, only one of title
claim, from the Varsity of the
same name, with Carter-Hawkins
combo. Tommy did what arrang
ing goes on, and there is more
than a little.
Teddy Walters plays good, un
amplified guitar, Todd, on a Hin
demuth, or something, kick, is in
spired. Reverse side, “Yum-Yum,”
calls out Walters to sing horrible
lyrics, to the 12-bar blues, not re
ally sensational, save for Todd’s
88. Down-Beat comments, “Sounds
as if nobody knew what was going
to happen,” is deserved. Ed Saf
ranski’s bass, plus Ray Linn’s Diz
like horn aid in the salvage job.
Todd and Ed engage in piano-bass
counterpoint in sevenths not yet
B. B. Repeat
The Rafael Mendez sides, one of
which we have heard, begin with
what seems to promise a “Flight
of the B. B.” repeat. Mendez, of
Carl Hoff quadruple tongueing
fame, has a bad tone, but good
l technique. Not very good ideas.
Men probably made money for do
ing these though. Bob Dukoff’s
tenor sounds like Hawk, playing
for BBC-London. Jack Jenny is
always worth smashing all other
trombone records for. Whole thing
is really show, lacking only rising
stage. Can’t hear Todd on “I Know
That Y. K.” Tommy has sixteen
bars on the reverse, “Tea For As
Many Want It.” Jenny plays four
bars. Muted Mendez finishes it out.
And we mean out. The only thing
this lacks is Abbott and Costello.
This thing of finding jazz seems
to resolve itself into playing every
label you see, because items popu
larly ignored sometimes bear a
Charlie Parker. If it means head
high in Comets or Crunkle-Crum

That greatly maligned and lovable character, Father, makes
his annual tour of the campus this weekend to see how daughtef
and son are spending his money and their time. The local blades
are going to have a lot of competition from some of these gay
old Oregon Dads, who plan to escort their lovely heiresses to
many of the popular rendezvous. In view of the occasion, we
are whitewashing the scandal slate, and so the following will
be merely news in a lighter vein.
Saturday night Delt “Red Reed
whispered to Lois Roeder, AOPi
prexy, “I’ll call the first of the
week.” The Sunday morning, 9:30
conversation was, “Well, it’s the
first of the.week!” Rushing things,
huh? . . Five Sig Eps made the
trip to Seattle last weekend for
the Washington series. Result: five
of the lovelier coeds from Wash
ington hit the campus this
weekend for follow-up dates. . .
Saving time, money, and steps,
SAE Bill Williams And Pi Phi Ann
Parsons nightly haunt the DU
hearth stone. . . Phi Delt Tom Kay
and ATO Bob Matteson are on the
outside, looking in, this weekend,
because all of Marilyn Rakow’s
Tri-Delt time will be taken by a
Wally Johnson, Theta Chi, has
been frequenting the ADPi house
lately; not with the idea of stir
ring up old coals, but to start a
new romantic blaze with Barbara
Bennett. . . As soon as Sigma Nu
pledge Joe Courtney is initiated,
Chi O Robbieburr W'arrens will
have that new pin. . . Open note
to proof-re.aders: It was Joan
Jacobberger who got engaged, not
Jean! . . After d. puzzling pause,
John Kroder, Chi Psi pledge, and
Bev Pitman are fondly gazing at
each other again. . . Chuck “Gal
lup” Pol-itz is still conducting his
survey of the Theta freshman
Predictions of things to come: j
Frank “Jigger” Dilling, DU, and
ADPi Cathy Robbins will become
well acquainted over a coke at the
j Side. . . That, stunning girl, Made
lyn Crump will be one of the most
heavily dated girls on campus in
side a week. . . Paul Marcotte will
be one of radiodom’s brightest
comedians in five years . . . the
Johnny Mathews - Gloria Grenfell
situation will blossom forth again.
Heading the hoofers on Romance
Row are Fiji Francis Thorn and
j Dee-Gee Cece Norene. . . A team
Delt pledge, are evidently staging
a return performance this week
end. . . It is to be hoped that the
current illness of “Sedlitz,” the
Delta Ganjma cat, is not interfer
ing with the affair of Barbara
Johns and her nightly visitor, ATO
Barney Franks. . . Basketballer
Ken Hays had two of his agents
: keeping close tab on Barbara Bor
revik at the WAA Carnival. . . .
Character with the sadpan expres
sion this week is the lad who at
tempted to date up Sigma Kappa
I Betty Ditto three nights in a row,
j only to find that she was legiti
mately tied up on all of the oc
casions. . .
Alpha Phi Ginny Brati'ish’s time
is being taken up lately by Dick
Tansing, Phi Delt. . . Minnie Jack
son returned to the campus last
week, visiting old friends at Susan
Campbell hall. She plans to register
here again spring term. . . Nila
Desinger seems to be picking up j
no rusii ot treshman week advisor’s conferences, exams, meet
liio-s. and social events does not allow the freshman an
abundance of time to spend getting “ore-nted” to the campus
and its ways. The manner in which many freshmen have ab
sorbed the material in the Welcome Book is proof that informa
tum about Oregon should be distributed before registration.
A proposal is being considered to send the Ore-nter out to
those individuals who receive the \\ elconte Book. If more funds
aie needed to make this possible, service and academic
honoraries and other donors may be asked to enlarge their
contributions to the booklet. The Ore-nter has won recognition
as a useful campus publication. Its value can be increased by
a change in the method of distribution.
where Pi Phi sister Eva Hedrick
left off as far as Beta pledge Nor
ton Smith is concerned. . .
Confusing gentlemen of the
phone booth are the Roberts broth
ers, Gil and Bob. It seems their
voices are so much alike that they
frequently stand in for each other.
After being tricked numerous
times, freshman Jean Herndon can
finally tell the difference between
the Maine boys’ accents. . . Ellery
Ream allowed absolutely no one
tcwcut in on Shirley Hough at the
recent Theta Chi-Alpha Phi des
sert. After giving her a one-hour
rush, he ended up with a date for
the complete weekend. . . ATO
Jack Donovan is pretty quiet cm
the surface, but once he gets gay,
the sky’s the limit! . . Our nomina
tions for two of the lovelier girls
at school: Theta Gay Edwards and
AOPi Bobbe Fullmer. . .
Looks as if Rip Gage, Beta
pledge, is getting to be a habit for
Sue Sullivan on Wednesday nights.
