City Police Say
No Rally Gripes
A check with the Eugene police
department last night revealed
that no complaints were turned in
against student rooters at Friday
night’s rally-street dance.

derful,” Bill Lance, rally board
member, commented. “With a rec
ord like this, perhaps it will be
easier to schedule more such cele
brations in the future.”
Street dances have been prohib
ited in Eugene for a number of
years because of complaints turned
in by residents when students dam
aged private property.

returned to the fire department
almost immediately, with the crew
of the third checking the basement
carefully. No apparent cause for
the smoke could be found, accord

An impromptu lawn party was
organized during the excitement,
which brought out a good deal of
the surrounding neighborhood to
“We were all set to have a fire
sale, but nothing burned,” mourned
Sally Waller, house president.

Guild theatre in Johnson hall to
