Hanrich, Page Take
Series For Yankees
NEW YORK, Oct. 6 (UP) —
The New York Yankees won the
world series today when two of
their old pros, Fireman Joe Page
and big Tommy Hcnrich, came
through in the clutch and final
ly flattened the battling Brook
lyn Dodgers, 5 to 2, in the sev
enth and deciding game.
In the climactic game of the
bitterly fought, fantastic series
which saw the emnattled under
dogs from Flatbush come up off
the floor time and time again,
Big Tommy slashed a fourth inn
ing single with the bases loaded
that provided the ultimate mar
gin of victory.
And Page, with $75,000 riding
every pitch, went to the hill in
relief in the fifth before a roar
ing crowd of 71,548 baseball fan
atics and shut the desperate
Dodgers out all the rest of the
Baccaloni Opens
Concert Series
Salvatore Baccaloni, basso buffo,
will be the guest star for the open
ing of the annual concert series
this Saturday at McArthur court.
The civic music association plan,
headed by G. E. Gaylord, which is
responsible for bringing the series
to the campus is a nonprofit or
ganization. "These programs are
attended by the largest audience in
the United States and therefore,
Eugene’s civic music plan is con
sidered the ideal example of what
can be done to improve group au
diences,” Gaylord revealed.
There is no admission cost for
students and those holding ASUO
cards. The doors open at 7:30 and
the concert starts at 8:15 with
Kwamas doing the ushering.

Professors Express Opinions
On Sales Tax Controversy
Oregon voters, including Uni
versity students of voting age
will go to the polls today to de
cide the fate of the sales tax bill.
It provides for imposing a three
percent tax on gross receipts from
all retail sales, with the exception
of food, motor fuel, newspapers,
and certain other commodities.
As the bill has excited some con
troversy, an Emerald representa
tive visited two professors of eco
nomics who represent opflbsite
sides of the issue. Dr. Calvin
Crumbaker, professor of econom
ics, favors the tax chiefly because
it will retnove a burden from pro
perty owners "who already pay
more than their property is worth
in taxes.”
Great Inconvenience
Dr. P.YV. Ellis, associate pro
fessor of economics, argues that
enough revefiue is raised from the
income tax, and the sales tax im
poses great inconvenience on the
business man.
Dr. Crumbaker agreed that the
income tax meets present require
ments, and has raised an “em
barassing surplus.” This surplus
of about $20,000,000 was raised
through income tax and cannot be
used except by the legislature
placing it in the general fund,
which they have not done, he said.
“Nevertheless,” said Crumbaker,
"experience justifies the belief
that this surplus will rapidly dis
appear when adversity comes.
Then all state levies will ava
lanche upon property holders. All
committments now made, and to
be made, will run property ta.xes
to fantastic heights."
Spread Load
“The sales tax," he continued,
“with all its faults will help spread
the load when the storm strikes.
It is the only proposal now before,
the people which will not unduly
increase the burdens on the pre
sent taxpayers when the ‘bust’
Crumbaker said he did not
maintain the sales tax is good
from an “ideological standpoint.”
"Oregon does not have a tax
which, from a scientific stand
point can be called good in its
present form,” the professor said.
“Oregon is justified in using the
sales tax on the theory sometimes
advanced that a good tax system
may be built from bad taxes, if

Dimes, Red Cross
National Charters
Prevent Accepting
The Campus United Fund drive,
postponed from its original open
ing date September 29, has been
cancelled because of the inability
to participate on the part of the
Red Cross and the March of Dimes
organizations. It was decided that
it would be impractical to stage a
drive for the only remaining or
ganization, WSSF.
Prohibitory clauses in the nation
al charters of the two organiza
tions prevent them from accepting
funds raised through a single drive
of this kind. No exceptions can be
made for college campuses.
Organized by ASUO President
Stan Williamson and his commit
tee, the drive aimed to combine the
annual Red Cross, March of Dimes,
and World Student Service Fund
drives into one to relieve students
from frequent contributions.
Reasons Presented
, The committee presented the fol
lowing reasons to the Eugene rep
resentatives of these organizations,
(1) students are not financially
able to give to three individual
drives, but would probably be able
to participate in one drive, where
with extreme effort more students
could be contacted and in that way
spread the burden to a greater
number of students, (2) it would
be a service to the students to get
rid of the recurrent demands for
donations and less painful to them
in the long run, (3) students were
growing tired of so many drives,
and (4) the amount received by
each group would stand every
chance of exceeding that which the
individual organization could col
WSSF Agrees
The WSSF agreed to accept
funds apportioned from the one
drive but the Red Cross and March
of Dimes representatives could not
participate because of their nation
al charters.
Primary reason behind their re
fusal is that each organization
wants to present its educational
program to the students, and feels
their purpose would be thwarted
by the one drive.
It was suggested that the money
be collected in one drive as sched
uled but that at the proper time
these organizations would be al
lowed to bring their educational
campaigns on the campus without
attempting collections. This idea
was also refused.
Ban Considered
The drive committee met again
