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 ber 4 and 5, and the need for ac commodations is expected to be double this number. The school of journalism will pay $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. (Please turn to page two) Committee Reaffirms Policy Rule 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. Party Responded 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 didates. Programs Crowded The committee said that it would like to extend the policy to btlier candidates and speakers, but to do so would lead to mom speeches than could be incorpor ated in the regular assembly pro gram. President Harry Truman was of fered an opportunity to speak on the campus when he passed through Eugene last June. Fie turned down the offer, on the grounds that his time was “too 'imited." Recently, the Democratic organization in Eugene has at I tempted to secure McArthur 0001! to provide an adequate auditorium for the speakers they had planned to invite to Eugene. The Univer sity has refused their requests, pointing to the policy adopted Sep tember 7.
