12 Easemenfs
Only Obstacle
To Millrace
Approximately 12 easements He
between the Millrace Park associa
tion and the successful completion
of its battle for the restoration of
the millrace, according to Kieth
Fennel, association secretary.
“We will attempt to secure the
remaining easements during the
next two weeks,” Fennell stated.
He added that there is no assur
ance that remaining millrace prop
erty owners will give their ease
ments to the association, but that
it is the intenion of the associa
tion to gain the easements if at all
The drive for easements has
heretofore been the chief stum
bling block in the restoration of
the race. However, there is still a
sizeable amount of money which
the association will have to raise
-to complete the fund to match a
millrwce appropriation voted in
city elections.
“Once the funds are raised, work
on restoration can begin immedi
ately,” Fennell noted. The associa
tion has been working for the mill
race association for some months,
during which time it has encoun
tered numerous obstacles, most re
cent of which was the controversy
with the Koke-Chapman printing
company, which filled a section of
the race for building purposes.
The Weather

ties on the Oregon Daily Emerald.
The changes were announced
yesterday by Editor Bill Yates.
Under the new arrangement, the
news and editorial staff positions

similar positions on metropolitan

duties of the staff members.

been appointed to that position.
The news editor, responsible for

Balloting Planned for April 27;
Nominations Five Days Earlier
By Betty Lagomarsino
Studentbody elections will be moved up one month and held
on April 7 this year, Bob Allen, ASUO president, announced
yesterday. Elections have traditionally been held at the end of
Allen listed three reasons for the executive council’s decision
to change:
1. Elections will not collide with other late spring term ac
tivities, such as the Mortar
Board Ball.
2. The Pacific Studentbody
Presidents Association meets
the week of May 9th, and both
the president and president elect
should attend.
3. The president elect—who
will be installed June 2nd— will be
able to work with Allen. This over
lapping, Allen said, will result in a
greater continuity in student ad
ministration and save the new presi
dent from “learning the ropes" dur
ing his actual term of office.
Nominating Assembly
Since the Constitution requires
elections to be held five days after
the nominating a-ssembly, the as
sembly automatically falls on Fri
day, April 22.
Allen said that because Friday is
a poor night for the nominations,
the executive council plans to dis
cuss a new plan with the heads of
the campus political parties.
New Plan to be Discussed
If approved by the political heads
and by the council, a small meeting
without speeches will be held April
22 to pre» Ut the nominations in
conformity with the constitution.
Then on Monday or Tuesday night
preceding the elections a student
rally will be held in McArthur court
for nominating and seconding
April 27 was selected for elec
tions, Allen pointed out, because
Wednesdays have proved the best
day for students to vote.
A new first vice president, to re
place Marv Rasmussen who was
seriously injured in an automobile
accident last week, will be appoint
ed within the next two weeks, Allen
said. The new officer will be in
charge of elections.
California Co-eds Feel Slighted
King of Hearts in Hot Water at Yuba
Whether Oregon girls are supe
rior to California coeds has given
one University of Oregon man an
unique amount of concern lately.
He is Jerry Smith who was voted
King of Hearts last February. Jer
ry’s concern centers mainly around
an Emerald story which quoted
him as saying “Girls at Oregon are
much superior to California coeds.
They are more down-to-earth and
natural in appearance and person
The clipping with the quote
somehow reached the coeds at
Yuba college in California where
Jerry once attended school. The
Yuba coeds, to put it mildly, were
highly displeased. Typical com
ments were quoted in the Sacra
mento Bee.
Said one: “How do you like that!
And I thought Jerry was a nice
Another ventured, “I never was
too concerned about Jerry, any
how. That goes double now.”
A Yuba college cheerleader said,
“Mmmmh. He doesn’t like us, eh?
That's tough. Our ‘friend’ certain
ly went high hat on us, didn’t he?”
Other exclamations included the
possibility Jerry is mad because
California girls “didn't fall all over
him” like Oregon girls.
What has Jerry to say about all
this ? When questioned by the Em
erald yesterday he said his pre
vious statement was “no reflection
on the girls at Yuba college. Some
of the best girls I know I went to
Yuba with.”
Nevertheless, he is not yielding
to the verbal lambasting given
him by the California girls. He
wants to qualify it only by giving
the overall picture.
“I said it in general terms and
not in individual cases,” he said.
“In general I still favor Oregon
Jerry said he had no idea his
statement would infuriate the Cal
ifornia girls. He added he should
offer an apology to his Yuba col
lege friends.
