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 heard recently. Did the exec council have a right to do this? students 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 workers. 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 “O” lettermen. 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.

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 eequivalent. 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 of Chantilly. 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 France. Registration of the group has almost been complete. Those en rolled for courses at the Sorbonne 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 , Elizabeth Kratt offers the wonderful opportunity to hear men who are well known for outstanding work in their re spective fields. 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.
