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 cess. 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 country. 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. More than 4,000 persons died irom cancer during 1946 in Minne sota. 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 books. Tenor Gafni (Continued from page one) mentals of music. His coaches were executed but Gafni was spared be cause the jailors enjoyed his sing ing. 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 ences. 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. Letters (Continued, from page tivo) all G. I. students.
