Oh, come now, Mr, Hamilton
Are those sturdy Golden Bears of California actually
AFRAID of our Mighty Oregon Webfoots?
Darned near everyone seems to favor a playoff between
Oregon and California provided the two teams knock over
their respective foes Saturday.
EVERYONE, THAT IS, EXCEPT CALIFORNIA.
Their reason? The game would “interfere with academic
matters,” says their athletic director Brutus Hamilton.
We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Jim Aiken’s men show
ed too much power in pasting the UCLA Bruins at Los An
geles last Friday night.
Or maybe Mr. Hamilton would secretly agree with USC
Coach Jeff Cravath that “when two teams of equal ability go
on the field, you must pick the team with the best passer, and
Oregon’s Norman Van Brocklin certainly is a great passer.”
Not long ago the Portland Oregonian asked in an editorial:
“Surely the Golden Bears do not want the Rose Bowl as
signment if they are not the best team?”
Here’s how we see it:.
Unless the powers-that-be at California change their minds,
we’ll be forced to the conclusion that the Bears want the Rose
Bowl assignment but are not willing to risk finding out wheth
er they actually deserve it.
Oh, come, now, Mr. Hamilton.
The Straight Scoop
Rumblings—both vocal and editorial—of public sentiment
over the action of executive council in voting themselves and
Orders of the “O” men tickets to the OSC game have been

debate. If those tickets were not put in the lottery, how many
more were,saved out?
The Emerald called up Howard Lemons, athletic business
manager, for the straight scoop on the disposition of tickets.
Here is how they were alloted:
Oregon people will have 2700 seats at the OSC game. Of
these, 1200 are reserved seats at $4 per hard-spot-on-the
bench. Most of these will go to alums and friends of the
University who are given first preference because they are
donors to the grants in aid fund that pays tuition of athletes.
The rest of the tickets are complimentary ones to be claimed
by players, coaches, and other athletic staff members and
Students will have 1500 seats. Tickets for these were
thrown in the lottery with the exception of about 40. These
now belong to executive council members and Order of the
These people payed their $2. They announced that they
had reserved these tickets for themselves.
But the exec council’s defense of this little snatch, though
it had some basis, is definitely weak.
Student Body President Bob Allen explained it this way.
The exec council took care of the lottery, and should be
paid for its services. (This would be OK if it were not the
duty of the council to perform a few such little services
throughout the year.)
Furthermore, said Allen, University officials are expect
ing trouble at the game. A representation, at least, of stud
ent body officers should be there, because any complaints will
come back to them.
The “O" men will, in addition, handle seating arrangements.
(This is one reason that holds water.)
Not all of the “O" men and exec council members given
preference for tickets accepted them. Therefore, as men
tioned above, only 40 tickets were held out of the lottery.
Of the tickets in the lottery, 141 were unclaimed. Thirty
three of these went to the freshman football team, and the rest
were put on sale.
And that’s the scoop on tickets.—B. H.

Letter From Paris
(Editor’s note: Elizabeth Kratt,
a University student in the school
of architecture and allied arts, is
studying in Paris, France, this
year under the Junior Year plan.
Through special arrangements the
Emerald will publish from time to
time letters from Miss Kratt. The
following is the first.)
By Elizabeth Kratt
The University of Delaware
program for junior year study
abroad is now under the direction
of Sweet Briar college. This
year's junior year in France
group has as director Professor
Joseph E. Barker of Sweet Briar
and as professor in charge Dr.
Theodore Andersson of Yale.
We're 65 members, 33 women and
32 men who represent 32 Ameri
can universities. The largest dele
gation is from Yale with 14.
Other universities having sev
eral representatives are Sweet
Briar, Wellesley, Connecticut col
lege, New London, Mills, Wiscon
sin, Bryn Mawr, Carlton, Colum
bia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Goucher,
and Mt. Holyoke . . . quite a list
even though it doesn’t include
some 19 universities with one
representative in the group.
The majority of the men are
veterans who are taking advan
tage of the GI bill whose aid be
gins the minute they set foot on
the boat and lasts until their re
turn to the U. S.
A major in French is not a re
quirement for membership in the
group. Chosen from an unlimited
number of applicants, more than
half this year’s group are majors
in other fields; art, music, Eng
lish, history, political science, so
cial science, comparative litera
ture, philosophy, drama, econom
ics, mathematics, and interna
tional affairs. Applicants must
have had, however, at least two
years of high school and two
years of college French or the
All the men and all but nine
teen of the women are living with
French families. The nineteen
women have rooms have rooms
at Reid hall, American Univer
sity Women’s center in Paris and
headquarters for the group, where
the girls of the Smith college
group are also staying.
We had a couple of days after
our arrival the fourth of Septem
ber to get somewhat settled be
fore starting the six weeks pre
liminary course of composition,
phonetics, grammar, dictation,
and a survey of nineteenth and
twentieth century literature.
The most profitable and most
interesting part of this period, I
think, were the daily lectures
given to the group about contem
porary trends and happenings in
all areas of French life by men
prominent in their various fields.
To mention a few.
M. Romain, a staff member, has
been a wonderful guide and
helped us to make good use of
the warm Clear Sundays in Sep
tember. We first visited Versailles
and Fontainebleau . . . joined
the crowds of people that go out
Sunday afternoon. Then we
toured the forests north of Paris,
stopping to see the cathedral and
town of Senlis and the chateau
The last trip we made to Char
tres where we spent all of a won
derful fall day visiting the ca
thedral and wandering through
the narrow, crooked streets from
which at almost any point you
can catch a glimpse of part of
the church. The stained glass win
dows are undamaged and they
were just completing the reinstal
lation of the windows taken down
during the war. Last Saturday I
visited the cathedral again and ,
was very glad to find all the win
dows in place.
The six weeks ended with final
exams the fifteenth and sixteenth
of October, and the group scat
tered for a two weeks vacation
before classes begin the third of
November. Only those enrolled
for political science courses had
to stay in Paris since they began
immediately. Many chose to stay, *
however, to take advantage of the
time to really see Paris. Others ^
were off to England, Spain, Italy,
the Cote d’Azur or other parts of
Registration of the group has
almost been complete. Those en

will have as members of the
group the privilege of attending
any of the lectures given at the
Sorbonne, a privilege usually giv
en only to graduate students that ,
offers the wonderful opportunity
to hear men who are well known
for outstanding work in their re
Each class has just one lecture
period a week and for most cours
es examinations are not given un
til the end of the year’s work, but
for the group each lecture will be
supplemented by two hours a
week of explanation, discussion,
examination, and guidance for in
dependent study with French tu
tors to help us in following a sys
tem of education so different
from our own.
I’m very glad to know that a
number of students at Oregon are
planning to study in France next
year and would enjoy very much
hearing from them. Perhaps I can
be of service in tracking down
definite information about cours
es or answers to other questions
they might have.
It doesn’t at all seem possible
that I’ve been here now almost
two months ... no problem to
keep busy with so many things
to do and see all the time when
besides the rich offering of thea
ter, opera, museums, concerts,
etc., the UN meetings and French
political activities form such an
important part of every day.
The group is just varied enough
in interests and fields of study
that whenever we get together to
compare notes I'm amazed again
that so much can happen in one
city at the same time. No need
to say how exciting and stimulat
ing it is, or how overwhelming,
and it’s difficult to believe that
I’m really here, somehow a part
of it all.
