    Special Form
Now Required
Under PL 346
All veteran students who are us
ing public law 346 and are taking
less than 12 hours, or who are en
rolled in architecture or applied
music (individual instruction)
courses, or who are working on
graduate theses are now required
to fill out VA form 7-1050-a, the
registrar’s office announced.
This requirement has made, the
office explained, because students
in the above categories have been
found likely to exceed the $166.67
per term allotted by public law
346. Such excesses are not paid by
the VA and in the past the Uni
versity has required individual
students to make up the difference
between the VA allotment and the
actual cost with a,cash payment.
May Spend Faster
Under the new system a student,
by filling out VA form 7-1050-a,
is allowed to expend his eligibility
time at an accelerated rate $2:10
per day) instead of paying the Uni
versity out of his own pocket for
the amount not payable by the VA.
The form was described by J. D.
Kline, assistant registrar, as a pro
tection to the student.
He emphasized that although the
form was filled out in advance it
does not become effective unless
the student’s educational costs ac
tually exceed the maximum al
lowed during the current school
year. To benefit from the process
however, he added, the form must
be filled out at the beginning of
the term.
Form 7-1050a may be filled out
at the veterans counter, office of
the registrar, without furnishing
any other data. It will be completed
from other records by the regis
trar’s office and forwarded to the
VA office. If the student prefers
a complete statement of educational
costs may be received before the
form is signed. Kline said that a
veteran wishing to do this should
make an appointment at the veter
ans counter.
Kline urged all students who fall
into the listed categories to come
in and sign the form as soon as
possible as it is now required by
the University. He added, however,
that within a few days a list of stu
dents in these categories and who
have not filled out the form will be
compiled and these students will
be requested to report to the reg
istrar’s office to complete the pro
UO Author Releases
New Publication
“Stern Wheelers Up Columbia"
is the title of the latest published
book of Randall V. Mills, assistant
professor of English at the Uni
versity. Published by the Pacific
Books company of Palo Alto,
“Stern Wheelers” covers a century
of steamboating in the Oregon
The opening up and subsequent
development of the Pacific North
west was made easier by the pow
erful sternwheeler boats, almost
the only type of ship able to man
euver in the swollen Columbia’s
currents. Mr. Mills’ book traces the
line of steamboats from the arrival
of the little “Beaver” at Ft. Van
couver in 1836 to the maiden voy
age of the 219 foot stern wheeler
“Portland" last year.
Mills is also the author of nu
merous articles in the field of
steamboat and railroad history and
in general western literature. One
of his articles, a discussion of the
covered bridge in Oregon, will be
published in an early issue of West
ern Folklore magazine.

No Drops Till Monday
The registrar’s office has de
clared a moritorium on the accept
ance or filing of add or drop cards
until Monday, according to J. D.
Kline, assistant registrar. Students
may still go through the process of
adding or dropping courses, attend
classes they are adding, and ob
tain the required departmental
stamps but they must wait until
Monday to file the cards at the
registrar’s office.
The reason for the add and drop
holiday is the tremendous number
of adds and drops this term com
bined with a new method of filing
these cards, Kline announced. The
office is now recording adds and
drops on the student’s record in
the presence of the student, Kline
explained. He said that this meth
od was adopted to prevent errors in
the change of courses.
Veterans who drop courses must
return the books issued to them for
that course. The drop card will be
accepted by the registrar unless it
has been stamped by the Co-op to
signify that the books have been
returned, he declared. Books may
be returned to the Co-op this week
in order that the drop card can be
accepted Monday.
Kline explained that the mora
torium may cause some inconveni
ence to veteran students who are
adding courses because they will
not be able to get the books until
the add card is filed in the regis
trar's office, which cannot be done
until Monday. After Monday the
process of obtaining books for add
courses will be the same as before,
he said. The veteran will receive a
duplicate class card when he files
his add card and this duplicate can
be taken to the Co-op to obtain

With Budapest Opera
After his liberation he sought
the leading voice teacher of Buda
pest. Before he knew a single note
of operatic repertoire, he signed a
contract with the Budapest opera.
Five weeks later he made his debut
at the Hungarian state opera in
Budapest singing the role of Alfre
do in “La Traviata.” When he gave
a concert soon after at the Buda
pest conservatory, his success was
so great that he repeated the con
cert five times to sold-out audi
A futile search for his family led
Gafni to Italy in 1946 where he
studied with Mario Terni of Milan
and Ricardo Straccian, a former
colleague of Caruso.
The young tenor’s international
renown began when he sang at a
party given by a secretary of the
American embassy in Rome. Next
came Gafni’s appearance in Town
Hall that established him as the
“Hungarian Caruso.”
Has Sob Quality j
He is said to possess a beautiful
tenor voice that is produced with
little effort. Critics wrote that
Gafni has perfect control of his
voice and can add the half-sobbing
quality characteristic of the Ital
ian operatic tenor tradition.
Columbia pictures recently re
leased a feature film, “A Voice Is
Born,” with the Hungarian tenor
po traying himself.
