    Fiftieth Year of Publication and Sendee to the University
Semester System Considered
M/ss Oregana Chosen
Hall Beauty
Gets Honor
Besides being “Miss Oregana,”
Ann Fenwick has the job of
“pleasing all the girls’’ as social
chairman of the University. Both
titles were recently given her.
She was introduced as “Miss Ore
gana” last night at the rally
dance, and 'social chairman, sev
eral weeks ago.
A senior who is changing her
major from art to anthropology,
Miss Fenwick lives in Hendricks
hall. Her favorite activity is be
longing to room seven in the hall.
She claims that four roommates
make up her board of directors.
Miss Fenwick needs no direct
ing as far as Oregon is concerned.
All her 21 years have been spent
here, especially in Portland where
she was graduated from Lincoln
high school. .
High school contests and this
year’s race for the title of Home
coming Hostess have included
Miss Fenwick. She was chosen
“Miss Oregana” from pictures ap
pearing in Oregana from the last
three years.
The contest winner has pur
chased the yearbook she repre
sents every year, and remembers
Barbara Pearson, who was “Miss
Oregana” in 1946.
This year’s titlist is five feet,
four inches tall with green eyes,
light brown hair, and a special
liking for dogs. Roommates, who
call her “Fennie,” say that she
“swears a dog smiles.”
While preparing a talk for last
night, Miss Fenwick’s main dis
like was “writing speeches.”
She will appear on a full page
of the 1949 Oregana and will be
guest of the staff on several oc
casions, beginning with a Chinese
dinner tomorrow.

Faculty to Present
Report Nov. 76
On New Proposal
(Emerald Special Writer)
November 16 may be the day on which a decision will be
leached on whether Oregon will attempt to change from the
present quarter system of registration to the semester system.
A faculty committee to investigate the possibilities of the
question was appointed this fall by President Harry K. New
bum at the request of the faculty senate. It is headed by P. B.
Jacobson, dean of the school of education.
State Board Must Approve
J he committee met this week to discuss problems which re
quire answers before a decision can be reached. Its next meet
ing is November 16 when it hopes to decide its recommenda
tion to the faculty senate.
Should it recommend the semester plan, and should the
change be approved by the faculty senate, the State Board of
Higher Education will be asked for permission to make the
Student Interests Considered
Major questions now being considered are, how and why
Oregon got on the quarter system, and which system is more
prevalent among the schools from which the University gets
most of its transfer students?
Student opinion is being polled through campus leaders by
Donald M. DuShanc, director of student affairs. Deans of
schools are being consulted, as are all department heads. They
have been asked to report what changes would be required in
revising course sequences and in solving other problems.
Effect of Change
kegisti ar C. L. Constance has been asked to report on the.
effect of the proposed change in his office, such as the time and
money saving involved in two registrations a year instead of
the current three.
Di• Jacobsen emphasized the committee is conducting the.
investigation with “no prejudices”, and will make no recom
mendation until it has all available facts.
Campus Poll Indicates
Student Political View
With the general electiqn only four days away the straw
polling business is booming. We ran across a fairly compre
hensive campus 1 cport on the national and state elections that
shows the Republican party sweeping the University. The poll
covered 11 campus living organizations and gave the Dewey
Warrcn ticket a 9 to one ratio over Democratic Truman-Eark
ley. Socialist candidates 1 homas and Smith showed more fol
lowers than the Progressive
team of Wallace and Taylor,
but neither of the third parties
could muster straw votes
enough to indicate more than
tactic competition.
The senatorial election fol
lowed the same general trend
as the presidential poll. Republi
can incumbent, Cordon, received
seven votes to one for Democratic
In the gubernatorial contest
Republican McKay polled 83 per
cent of the votes while Demo
cratic candidate Wallace receiv
ed 16.
The races for state treasurer and
Secretary of State showed approxi
mately the same lead for the Repub
licans over their democratic oppo
sition. _
Ninety percent of the polled votes
favored the liquor over the bar
amendment, while the Vet Bonus
bill was favored by 61 percent.
Eugene’s contest between Ed
win Johnson, Ralph Newman and
A. L. Hawn for mayor was not
polled by the same group, but in

Kappa—Pi Phi'Lipstick Bowl' Tussle Sunday at 2
It's here again! the “new look”
in football. The girls are pigtailed
and Pasadena-bound, with stone
wall lines and the swiftest back
fields yet seen on the Pacific coast.
The high-spirted freshman class
of Kappa Kappa Gamma has again
challenged the rough and tough
freshmen of Pi Beta Phi to the sec
ond annual grid tussle which will
go down in history as the year’s
“big game.” The Gerlinger turf
Sunday at 2 p.m,, rain or shine,
will be the scene.
The co-eds have thrown over
powder puffs, lipsticks and the
rooting section in favor of jeans,
sweat-shirts, and training table, to
display their talents on the grid
Pi Phi Lineup
Pi Phi freshmen are tabbed to
provide dangerous competition for
the determined, muscle-bound
wearers of the blue and blue. Pi
Phi coach, Phi Delt Hal Schick,
assisted by Elwin Paxon, Mat
Vranizan and Gene Moody, said,
“The team has shaped up better
than expected. No smoking, gum
chewing or rib-injuries have been
The Kappa team, however, will
be heavily handicapped due to
the injury of one of the touchdown
twins, Marilyn Hillman, who is
suffering injuries from last week’s
Washington State game. Head
Coach Doug Coghill, Theta Chi,
said, “The Kappas are smelling
roses and despite injuries will be
out there to win.”
Team captains Aileen Betschart,
Pi Phi, and Betty Hillman, Kappa,
have released their starting lineups
and the Pi Phis look like the Notre
Dame of the West. Center is
