The wartime bulk of quonset huts
may loom on the' Oregon horizon
when fall term begins, according to
information released Wednesday
by Dr. W. V. Norris, professor of
physics who is supervision housing
development at the University. The
huts will be used for classrooms
and offices, he said.
Two steel-craft huts, similar to
the quonset hults but of a more
elaborate construction, are defin
itely planned for use as music prac
tice rooms. They are made with
aluminum panels, a somewhat odd
development for the wood center
of Eugene, Dr. Norris said, but “we
use what we can get the^e days.”
Other housing units planned are
a series of “row-houses” for mar
ried couples. Six of these are under
construction now, he said, and 275
are planned to be up by fall term.
There are also two men’s dor
mitories planned for next term, Dr.
Norris said. These will hold 772
men and preference will probably
be given to veterans. A cafeteria
will also be built as a part of these
Among campus living organiza
tions many changes will be made.
The Delta Zeta sorority has pur
chased the Delta Tan Delta house
and will move in fall term. The
Sigma Nu fraternity will move
back in their house now occupied
by the Delta Zetas. The Sigma Chi
fraternity will reoceupy their
house now filled with students

Nursery to Be Open
During Summer School
A campus nursery will be spon
sored during the summer session
at the YWCA bungalow to accom
modate busy veterans' wives. The
nursery will be sponsored jointly
by the campus Red Cross board
and YWCA.
Veterans attending summer
school are eligible to leave their
children in capable hands from 1
to 5 o'clock Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday, without charge to
parents. Nursery hours begin June

Students Plan
Religion Week
Gil Roberts, junior in physical
education, and Martha Thorsland,
junior in liberal arts, were named
Monday evening to head campus
religious emphasis week scheduled
for October 27 to November 1,
Carl Webb, general chairman an
At the Monday night meeting,
attended by representatives from
campus living organizations, pre
liminary plans for the event were
made. Paul B. Means, head of the
department of religion, discussed
outstanding speakers who would
be brought to the campus to con
duct a series of meetings for both
public and the campus and to meet
with various living organizations
to conduct forums and to hold per
sonal conferences.
The last event similar to the
religious emphasis was held in
1938 unSer the direction of
Charles G. Howard of the law
school and was called University
Christian mission. “The 1938 meet
ings were very successful, with
student and city participation
reaching a high level,” Webb said.
"We hope to make this year’s re
ligious week as worthwhile.”
Committees will be appointed
later by the chairmen.
Homecoming Petitions
Called for By Tom Kay
All petitions for Homecoming
chairman for the 1946 Homecom
ing next fall must be submitted to
Tom Kay at the Phi Delta Theta
house as soon as possible, it was
announced yesterday.
Summer Sessions Offer
Wider Range of Courses
On Tuesday, June 18, Oregon’s five institutions of higher
education will open their doors to the largest throng of students
ever to enroll during the summer quarter. _ - ^
Officials attribute this increased popularity of the summer
sessions to several factors: Many veterans just out of the
service do not want to wait until fall before beginning or re
suming their education.
Other veterans already in school
are anxious to make up for lost
time and plan to continue their
work 12 months a year until they
finish. With the assistance pro
vided by the GI Bill of Rights,
some veterans are able to forego
the summer-time jobs that were
once a necessity.
Teacher Shortage
Another reason for the record
breaking enrollment is the current
shortage of teachers in the state’s
secondary and elementary schools.
Many positions are open to appli
cants with the proper qualifica
tions and ambitious schoolteachers
should find just the courses they
need at one of the five schools in
the state system. Oregon’s mild
summer weather is expected to
attract many out-of-state students
to “study in air-conditioned Ore
Courses Offered
But the weather is not the only
inducement that is being offered to
students interested in . summer
session. Most schools will have
larger percentages of their regu
lar teaching staffs on hand this
year than heretofore and a wider
range of courses will be available.
Students will be able to continue
their present course schedules with
very little difficulty in most cases.
This is especially true in lower
division work.
Outside the academic field, every
effort is being made to insure a
well-balanced program of sports,
social activities, forums and lec
tures, and musical programs.
The University will sponsor
weekend hikes and picnics and will
Cigarette Butts on the Deck
Janitors ’ Chief Webfoot Gripe
By Gloria Smith
“Cigarette butts on the floor—
that is!” seems to be the main
complaint coming from UO cus
In a survey taken among the
janitors on the campus aimed at
finding out their main complaint
about student blunders and care
lessness. either the cigarette com
plaint was filed or none at all.
C. McCormack, in charge of
Villard hall, the press, the exten
sion buildng, the depot, news bu
reau, YMCA, and the zoo, said, “I
think it is rather inconsiderate of
students to throw their cigarettes
around but at the same time I
guess young people don’t stop to
think about that.”
Tennis Etiquette
Will Grimes, custodian of the
tennis courts, had no gripes to air
He said, “If you meet anyone half
way you can get along. I'm firm
and have found I've been able to
get along with the students. When
they realize what the rules and
regulations are that they must live
up to. they find it easy to get
Students who coyly dispose of
cigarettes in odd corners should
take some sage advice from Fred
Ream, custodian of Friendly, who
said, “I don’t like seeing the stu
dents going in to a class room and
smoking. Another thing, they seem
to think that putting cigarette
stubs in corners and behind radi
ators eliminates them, but it just
makes more work than if they
j were in the middle of the hall."
Look! No Gripes . . .
; August N. Loquest, custodian of
Deady hall, said, “There isn’t any
thing I can think of that really
| bothers me. Guess life has been
pretty good, no complaints.”
Bill Mulvaney, journalism and
McClure, commented, “The way
they smoke cigarettes and throw
them around it looks like a club.
It isn’t the smoking that bothers
me, but the method they use in
applying it. Another thing I can’t
figure out is how 20 students can
go in a class room and disarrange
100 chairs. However, I don’t blame
the students entirely, but the fac
ulty for not getting after them.”
More Cigs
Hawley H. Halversen, library
custodian and another cigarette
man, said, “Students smoking cig
arettes and throwing stubs on the
floor. It makes the library look
bad. They seem to be so careless
about it and refuse to use the re
Charles Clark of the museum of
art said, “Once in a while they
smoke a cigarette and put it in a
corner. Usually, though, the stu
dents are pretty good, especially
the veterans and their wives.”
Complaints have been filed to

be, “Cigarette butts in ashtrays—

Students at the Oregon College
