    Reader Poll Tells
Best-Read Stories
A readership poll of the March
1 issue of the Emerald, taken of
approximately two per cent of the
enrolled students early this week,
indicated that the best-read story
was the one about Governor Earl
Snell’s explanation of the propos:
ed Klamath Falls school for vet
erans. About 69 per cent of those
interviewed had read that story.
Best read item on the sports
pages of Friday’s paper was “Duck
Tracks” written by Leonard Turn
bull, noted by 48.5 per cent. Next
was “A Duck Sez—Sez He” by
Lynn Smith, followed by the Frosh
basketball game and Larry Lau’s,
“A Tout’s Report.”
The stories about the constitu
tion election held March 6 and the
opposition of the Independent Stu
dents association to the proposed
constitution was read by 47 per
Letters to the editor and the
Klamath Falls project received
the second largest readership,
nearly 25 per cent. It was noted by
those who conducted the inter
views that nearly every veteran
read the Snell conference story,
the letters to the editor, and the
editorial, all of which discussed
the Klamath Falls proposal.
The editorial placed sixth on
the list with 45.6 per cent reading
Although hidden under a new
name, the gossip column was stud
ied by 54 per cent. Interviews of
Bob Weston and Estelle Shimshak,
who are playing two of the lead
ing roles in the Theater Guild’s
latest production, “Out Flew the
Web,” attracted the attention of
an even half of those interviewed.
Interviewers noted that almost
everyone looked at the pictures
and read the captions underneath,
even though they read nothing
else on the page.
Some interviewees, particularly
those living off campus, complain
ed that enough Emeralds are not
distributed and that they receive
their copies irregularly.
Among those assisting with the
survey were Jean Patterson, Chris
tine Christian, Charles Herring,
Dick Shelton, Marilyn Sage, Ro
berta Brophy, June Goetze, Jean
ette Grant, and Laura Olson.

Once again the beginning of
a term finds the sports staff
of the Emerald under-manned.
Men are needed to cover the
varied fields of athletics here
at the University. AM men
interested are urged to contact
either Fred Beckwith or Leo

Betty Holeman, old student: It’s
very unorganized, and there are
too many unnecessary details.
Paul Hiltar, veteran, old stu
dent: It was very orderly disorder
in Johnson hall. I though the navy
was fouled up, but at least they
had men to keep things in order.
Ray Straub, old student: Regis
tration is swell. Things went pret
ty smoothly for me.
Vivian Hodes, veteran, transfer:
I think it’s all fouled up. It doesn’t
move fast enough, and there
should be more people to help.
Jim Newquist, veteran, old stu
dent: It’s well-organized. It took
me about 15 minutes to complete
my registration.
Jean Morrison, veteran, return
ed student. I don’t believe it’s any
worse than before I left. It could
be made a lot clearer. The direc
tions are too vague.

seven years, every student who
has not received a vaccination
within the last five years should
do so at once.
Recent reports from epidemic
areas on the coast say that the
disease is the virulent type, con
sequently the health service can
not assure complete protection
even when vaccination has been
given within the last few years.
It is assumed, however, that a
general measure of immunity
should exist.
