“The school of journalism is very
grateful for the response of the
various living organizations in an
swer to their requests for housing
of this year’s annual high school
press conference delegates,” said
Warren C. Price, general chair
man of the conference, yesterday
concerning housing conditions.
Mr. Price expressed his hope
that those organizations which
have not as yet agreed to house
some of the delegates will find it
possible to do so, and will send in
their replies soon. He also hopes
that those who have already signed
with the school will find it possi
ble to house one or two more than
was originally signed for.
Some Houses Agree
At the present date, houses have
agreed to take care of 67 girls and
48 men for the nights of Novem

$1 per person per night to each
house, and members of Sigma Del
ta Chi and Theta Sigma Phi, jour
nalism honoraries, will escort the
high school delegates to the houses.

Louise Clouston Begins Theater Work at Early Age;
Next Role is Gabby Maple in The Petrified Forest'
By MARGE SCANDLING
Some luminaries of stage and
screen may boast of starting out
in leading roles, but friendly, red
haired Louise Clouston of the Uni
versity theater is different. Louise 1
got her start as a first-grader when
she played a mouse in a production
of “The Pied Piper of Hamlin.”
“I’ll never forget it,” she confided
in an interview Tuesday, “my part
ner’s tail got caught in the scenery,
and there I was, trying to pull him
onto the stage for all I was worth.”
There have been lots of roles be
tween that one and Gabby Maple,
the one Louise plays in the forth
coming production of “The Petri- j
fied Forest.” Louise had her share
of high school play parts and start
ed her University theater career j
during her freshman year’with the
role of Plum Blossom in “The Yel
low Jacket.” Last year she played
three major roles — Eustacia in
“The Dover Road,” Judy O’Grady j
in "The Adding Machine,” and I
Puck in “Mudsummer Night’s'
Dream.” Sh!3 claims the role of
Puck was her favorite but has en
joyed all of the roles because of
j their wide variety. “Playing some
LOUISE CLOUSTON '
thing different each time is part of
the fun,” she smiled.
Louise finds the interpretation of
her present roie more difficult than
any of the others. “Before, I've
played more or less a certain ‘type’,
but Gabby Maple is an individual
who seems very realistic.” The
complexity of Gabby intrigues
Louise. “She’s caught in this situa
tion with all the odds against her,
but she never gives up her dream of
studying art in France someday.
Yet she is completely realistic and
straightforward about things.’ ’
The same complexity is true of
the other characters in the play,
Louise believes. She quoted a critic
as saying, “Every character in ‘The
Petrified Forest’ has a soul written
into his part.”
When asked about her make-up
for the play, Louise expressed re
lief that she would wear her hair
in its usual casual style. “This will
be about the first time that I
haven’t had to do something to it- -
either’ dye it or cut it off.”
She didn’t mind cutting it short
for Puck last year, but as the Chi
nese Plum Blossom, it had to be
black. “I tried everything,” Louise
said, “Rit dye, shoe polish, and
ink.” Finally in desperation she de
vised' an intricate coiffure of false
black hair and some hair nets.

Major party presidential and
viec-presidcntial candidates will
continue to receive invitations to
speak on the Oregon campus. The
University assembly committee
reached this decision by unanimous
vote at a meeting yesterday. The
invitation which was originally ex
tended September 7 through the
chairman of the state organizations
was again made.
The September 7 letter an
nouncing the policy was sent in
sufficient time to permit any
party which desired to do so to
take advantage of the opportun
ity, the committee pointed out.
Only the Republican party re
sponded by bringing in' the vice
presidential candidate for a Eugeno
speech. Although the vice-presiden
tial candidate of the Democratic
party was in Oregon, he did not ac
cept the invitation.
Purpose of the policy, according
to the committee, was not so much
concerned with having party repre
sentation as with giving students,
faculy and townspeople an oppor
tunity to hear the top national can
The committee said that it
would like to extend the policy to
btlier candidates and speakers,
but to do so would lead to mom
