Official All-City Canvass Starts
Next Week to Match City Funds
By Bob Funk
Against a background of music, canoes, and pledge cards, the cam
pus mllrace fund drive ended yesterday with a strong possibility that
its $3500 goal was met.
"I think that we came near making our quota," Warren Davis,
campus drive chairman, declared. Actual outcome of the drive will
await the final count of breakage fee pledge cards.

noon, ‘‘but any pledge cards which
have not yet been turned in may be

approximately $1000 lacking in the

City Drive Monday
Officially, the all-city drive for
millrace funds does not begin until
next week. -However, by that time
the fund will have been augmented
by the results of the campus drive,
individual donations from persons
in and around Eugene, and funds
already in the Millrace Park Asso

amassed to match funds voted by
by the Eugene city council. Of this,
$4000 was pledged last year by

drive has been an attempt to fulfill
the student pledge.

'Other Side' Told
Wright Explains Restricted Parking
By Martin Weitzner
The physical plant truck pictured in the Emerald
as a violator of the ordinance against parking in
restricted areas, was an exception rather than the
rule in his department, said Irwin I. Wright, super
■ intendent of the physical plant.
A photo featured on page one of an Emerald of
two weeks ago, showed the truck parked in an
| alleyway in direct violation of a regulation issued by
Mr. Wright's department. Kirk Braun, Emerald
columnist, charged that while others were being
! penalized for disregarding the edict, physical plant
vehicles were proving the chief violators. ♦
1 In refutation, Wright claimed that the regu
: lation had not been strictly enforced. “We
: have not tagged cars found parked on sites other
than those designated for this purpose,” he said.
Wright added that car owners were not using space
provided for parking, but rather were blocking
driveways, sidewalks, and even going up on nearby
The chief complaint parking in alleys was that
cars parked there blocked the road for physical
plant trucks engaged in their daily business.
‘‘Our trucks are forced to go out of their way,
and are often unable to come up to our building to
load up, because of cars parked in their path,” said
“As far as I am concerned,” he added, “the issue
is a closed affair.”
Judging from lack of student response to Braun’s
disclosure, Mr. Wright seems to be “wright.”
