    ■No Check Delay for University Vets
eagle Flies on Schedule;
Vets Aid Bill to Up Pay
Subsistence Payments
Not Stopped in Oregon
Student veterans in Oregon
will receive their subsistence
checks on schedule this month,
according to an Associated
Press story from Portland re
ceived here last night.
The story followed an earlier
• release from Washington, D.C.,
which stated that the Veterans
Administration would be unable
to send out monthly checks due
today to more than 2,870,000 vet
erans receiving unemployment or
educational allowances.
The later story, which quoted
Charles Langdon, veterans admin
istration manager in Portland,
, said that the checks in the Oregon
area would be sent on schedule.
Some checks, it said, were already
in the mail.
The story from Washington said
that the Veterans Administration
had announced that funds which
congress appropriated for making
the payments had been exhausted.
“The delay,” the story added, “is
expected to be of short duration
since additional funds for the pur
pose are carried in the deficiency
appropriation bill currently before
congress and should be available
within a few days.”
.'Go-op Capers’
Dance Theme
“Co-op Capers” is the theme of
the annual semi-formal Co-op
dance, which will be given Satur

linger, to the music of Herb Wid
mer and his campus dance band.
This year, alums of the men’s
co-ops are being invited. Jim Rob
son, social chairman of Campbell
club, says “it is hoped that the
“Co-op Capers” may become the
annual spring dance of the Co-op
houses—a traditional social get
tog'ether of members, friends in
terested in the development of the
Co-op movement, and alums."
On the dance committees, each
co-op has provided one member for
each committee. Jim Robson is
general chairman; the following

lock, Campbell club, decorations;
Zabelle Dohanian, Highland house,
refreshments; Margaret McKin_
rick, Rebec house, programs;

AVC Campaign Spurs
Vet Allowance Boost
In accordance with the national
planning committee’s platfprm
supporting additional increase in
subsistence for GI students, the
local chapter of AVC began a
campaign Monday to support a
bill now in congress which, if
passed, will raise the veterans'
subsistence allowance.
Jack Compton, legislative chair
man for AVC, has asked for the
cooperation of all students on the
campus who are interested in aid
ing the drive.
Leaders of the AVC feel that the
problem is particularly critical at
this time because of the recent an
nouncement of rises in dormitory
rates, to become effective at the
end of this term.
According to Mrs. Genevieve
Turnipseed, director Of dormi
tories, increases in board and room
have been made by the state b6ard
for the following reasons.
1. The cost of raw food pis
student has increased to seven
dollars, and in order to procure
the proper tood, rates must be
increased $4 per person.
2. AH state employees are
being placed on civil service
with increased incomes.
3. The new retirement fund
for those over 65 which requires
the employee and state to con
tribute five per cent.
With these added operating ex
penses, she explained', it is impos
sible for the University to keep
rates at spring term costs. Ex
penses for the summer session will
be $144 for both sessions.
Fall term board, to be computed
on a monthly basis, will be $40,
and room, to be computed on a

Mother's Week-end to Relive Old Traditions
Exactly 20 years ago a small
jroup of mothers gathered for
Mothers' Day on the University
lampus, encouraged by Arnold Ben
le'tt Hall, then president of the
University. Their purpose was to
see just exactly what was going on
n the school, the work their chil
Iren were doing, where and how
;hey lived, and how they spent their
eisure time.
They had such a good, time, and
the students so enjoyed having
them, that they have been coming
back every year for a bigger and
better Mother's Day weekend. For
these same reasons, mothers will
gather again this year on May 9,
,10, and 11. It is true that their num
bers have grown with increased in
terest on the mother’s part and
with the increased enrollment in
the University. It’s a little harder
to find a place to s£ay in the busy
little. metropolis of. Eugene these
last few years, but if we know you
are coming there will always be a
place to stay. Those mothers who
went to the University before their
children will find many new build
ings, and plans for more, and many
strange faces. The lovely May
weather, the charm of the picnic on
the old campus, and the friendly
Oregon spirit are things which have
not changed in twenty years, how
