Campus Police Seize Intruder
Believed Seeking Illegal Entry
A 20-year old student from Vanport college was picked up
by campus police about 8 a. m. yesterday while ..he was ..at
tempting what was believed to be an entry to the business de
partment of Emerald hall. He was released about 11 a. m.,
presumably from lack of charges.
The youth, who had been accepted for entrance into the Uni
versity next term, was first heard moving underneath the Em
erald hall floor by the custodian, who called a watchman and
uapt. jonn P. Kaikhoven ot the
campus police.
Hole Found hi Floor
The three checked an opening
in the hall foundation, to find the
student crouched behind a floor
support, it was said. When ques
I tioned by Capt. Kaikhoven and
Eugene police detectives, the youth
reportedly said he was an employee
of a Portland telephone company
and had been sent to check wiring
in the building. Later he told' of
ficers he was studying conduits
beneath the building as part of a
study of physics, campus police
A hole found bored in the floor
about one foot from the business
office vault was said to corres
pond to a brace and bit found in
the young man’s black convertible
Ford coupe. A key-hole saw was
also in the car.
The vault contained student rec
ords and' miscellaneous material,
but little money, Registrar C. E.
Avery said.
Presence Unexplained
Described as about 6 feet, iy2
inhces tall, and well-built, the
blond youth told police he had left
his Portland home at 3 a. m. yes
terday morning. His name was dis
covered on an indentification bra
celet he was wearing and police
checked to find the man’s Port
ia land1 address, according to Kaik
hoven. He first gave a fictitious
name of Jack Roberts.
Indications were that the youth
may have planned sawing a hole
next to the vault big enough to
allow his entrance.
Spring Sign-up
Continues Slow
Thirty-eight students, including
33 veterans, completed registra
tion for spring term yesterday,
bringing to 115 the number of stu
dents completely enrolled as the
two-week pre-reigstration period
advanced. Material for registra
tion has been secured by over
3,000 students.
A good part of the registration
material, which has been available
at Emerald hall since Monday
morning, still lays in the registrar’s
office awaiting enrollees, Regis
trar C. E. Avery reported. The
stand-still in advance registration
is the result of a request by the
liberal arts college that register
ing for classes in that division be
held off until next week.
In an effort to speed the advance
procedure, material may be picked
up at the office throughout next
week, Avery said. The registrar’s
office, he declared, is endeavoring
to cooperate in every way to speed
Earlier instructions made tomor
row noon the last date for securing
advance registration material.
