To Check
• Athletic business manager How
ard Lemons has announced that
activities books will be checked at
the gate before next Saturday’s
game, to prevent non-students
• from occupying the Oregon root
ing section.
This action is being taken as the
result of numerous student com
plaints about obvious non-students,
. “old men and kids,” who have been
gaining admission to games with
student booklets.
Student Complaint
Said Lemons: "We want it un
. derstood that we are taking this ]
action only because we have had |
many complaints from students.;
• We don’t like to do it, but it is a
necessary step to assure Oregon
students of getting the best possi
ble seats. We want every student
Using his own book to get a seat,
. but we don’t want non-students in
student seats.”
Lemons further cautioned that
‘ ASUO cards will not be considered
sufficient identification, and that
the only sure way to get into the
stadium will be to use individual
books, along with proper identifi
• cation. Students should avoid loan
ing or selling their books to out
siders or to other students. Any
such acts will result-in the confis
cation of the books.
Nine Guilty
Nine students used booklets from
a previous term to gain admission
to the Portland game last week.
No action will be taken on these
. violations, since students had not
been warned against this. How
ever, the guilty students are known
to the ticket office, through checks
on the ticket numbers.

Petitions for house chairman of
. the YWCA are being accepted until
. jWednesday at the Y bungalow.

President Newburn Subs For Dean
Students entering Dean Paul B. Jacobson’s 11 o’clock class
in secondary education yesterday were greeted by University
President H. K. Newburn, a former professor of education.
Due to heavy enrollment in the school of education, a pro
fessor on limited service because of a throat infection, and an
other scheduled to go to the hospital for a major operation, no
one else could be found to take the class when Dean Jacobson
was called out of town for two days.
Vets May Work

Veterans attending school full
time under the G.I. bill may work
part-time and still draw full sub
sistence pay, according to the Vet
erans Administration.
The only income limitation ap
plies to the amount of subsistence
paid within combined ceilings. Ac
tually a veteran may earn as much
as he wishes on outside jobs,

Ceilings for combined earnings
and subsistence are: $210 monthly
for veterans without dependents;
$270 with one dependent; and $290

dio studios will be held Wednes

nounced yesterday.

Seniors Register
For Civil Service
Seniors interested in positions
with the federal government after
graduation are urged by Karl W.
Onthank, director of the graduate
placement service, to register for ci
vil service examinations to be held
sometime in November.
These government positions come
under two classifications: junior pro
fessional assistants and junior ad
ministrative^ assistants. A high de
gree of specialized training is not
necessary for all positions, Onthank
stated; applicants will be judged on
their University record and their ex
amination score. The government
will train successful candidates in
their particular line of work.
Formerly offered in the spring,
these tests are now given in the fall
to enable the government to compete
with private employers. The delay
necessary in scoring the tests given
in the spring gave business a head
start over federal agencies in secur
ing promising graduates.
Voters Can Pick Up
Applications Today
Applications for absentee ballots
for voters registered in the city of
Portland may be picked up at the
Co-op today and Wednesday.

Aiken Reviews
GameOn Radio
■ Coach Jim Aiken told radio lis
teners last night that he was
mighty glad the Webfoot team
came out on top of the Oregon
USC tilt Saturday.
It wasn't the first time, he said,
that^ a team was allowed another
play after the final gun. He point
ed to the Ohio State-Northwestern
game in which Northwestern won
after being given several more
plays after the game’s end.
The program on which Aiken
and Scout Frank Zazula were in
terviewed by Harry Sackett is
aired on stations KASH and KOAC
each Monday at 8 p.m.
Players Named
Outstanding players in Satur
day’s game as named by Aiken
were Norm Van Brocklin, who did
a fine job of passing, Dick Wilkins,
and Dan Garza “who played a fine
defensive game.’’
He especially complimented
Halfback George Bell who played
by “sheer nerve” after receiving a
very painful bruise on his hip.
Head Scout Frank Zazula de
clared that Washington State
looked as good against the Univer
sity of Washington Saturday as
USC looked against Rice the \yeek
He said the 10-0 score by which
WSC defeated Washington was
hardly indicative of their power.
WSC has an excellent line and fine
backs, he added.
