The girls will be assigned names
of prospective students to whom
they will write, arranging a meet
ing time soon after the beginning
of fall term. The counselors will
take their ducklings to Y-sponsored
parties and school functions for the
first six weeks of school.
Nancy Moran and Nancy Glea
son, freshman chairmen, have an
nounced that a file will be kept at
the YWCA for the purpose of keep
ing the names of those interested,
handling mailing, and as a place
where information can be passed
between ducklings and counselor.
The project is being handled
largely by the newly organized
sophomore commission which is an
outgrowth of this year’s freshman

Once these first mothers were on
the campus, they caught the spirit
of the students in working for a bet
ter school and became organized
into a Mothers Group for the pur
pose of helping further these inter
ests. The first president of the
group, according to Karl Onth>nk,
was a very capable organizer, Mrs.
Walter M. Cook. Their functions in
■ eluded service, support of Univer
sity enterprises, as the current Stu
dent Union drive, and increasing
public understanding of what the
University is doing.
The first Mothers’ scholarship
was given to a worthy man or wom
an who needed help to come to
school. They proved so successful,

These advisers are checking with i
the deans of the various schools!
so that they may become specialists
in the fields they have been as-!
signed. In this way they will not j
only be able to advise you as to the!
VA requirements but will be well
versed from the standpoint of just
what the various schools and de
partments require. Veterans are
urged to see not just any training
officer but the one who happens to
be specializing in their particular
field if they have any questions |
about their training. All three of the j
men mentioned above can be cen- ;
tacted at room 114, P.E. building. |

The veterans’ legislative program
in the 80th Congress has been ham
strung so far by the Republican
controlled house rules committee
and by the slipshod economy drive
headed by Rep. Harold Taber. Last i
week some Democratic members of |
the house committee on veterans’ j
affairs prepared for a showdown
conference with Speaker of the
17" ' '
House Joe Martin. The latter reluc
tantly permitted his name to be
added to the list of congressional
leaders avowedly favoring a bill to
permit optional cashing of terminal
leave bonds now. Nevertheless,
Martin and his Republican cohorts
have been primarily responsible for
the “stall" on veterans’ legislation.
Just off the wire is an AP report
dated Washington, April 29th
which will undoubtedly be interest
ing in a morbid way to the vets at
Oregon. This wire states that the
Veterans Administration will be un
able to send out monthly checks
due today to the almost three mil
lion veterans receiving unemploy
ment or educational allowances. It
said the funds appropriated for that
purpose are exhausted.
That makes tilings just “ducky”
for the vet who is really dependent
on those checks on a month-to
month basis. The Republican party
won the congressional elections last
-her on the slogan “Had
Trough;” if they remain as inept
as they have demonstrated they are
in the past few months we will all
probably have “had more than
enough” long before the elections
of 1948 roll abound.
