“Devaluation of the English
pound is no real cure for the ec
onomic illness of Western Europe,”
Dr. Howard S. Piquet stated in a
speech before the Foreign Affairs
meeting at the YMCA last night.
Dr. Piquet, who served as a con
sultant to the House and Senate
Foreign Relations committee, said
that devaluating the pound
sterling from $4.03 to $2.80 was
merely a temporary relief from the
problem which England and all of
Western Europe faces.
He explained the problem facing
these countries was that of great
er imports than exports. Since
these countries, particularly Eng
land, have depended upon exports
as a primary source of income,
they have attempted to increase
exports by cheapening their goods
through currency devaluation.
“However, Dr. Piquet stated,
“The danger of devaluation is that
though it increases exports, the pri

Kappas, Pi Phis for Pigskin P/ay
By Stan Turnbull
Not one, but two gridiron extra
vaganzas are scheduled for the
campus this weekend.
The Oregon-Colorado game Sat
urday has been pushed into the
background with announcement of
the umpteenth renewal this Sun
day of the “Lipstick Bowl” battle
between Kappa Kappa Gamma and
Pi Beta Phi. Game time is 2:30 on
Neither team can be rated a
favorite because of conflicting
claims. Both sides say the other
will have a weight advantage, and
hints of “professionalism” have
PADS TO BE WORN
The game will be played more
or-less under touch rules, and pads
will be worn, both sides claim.
In last year’s classic a power
laden Pi Phi machine outclassed
an injury-riddled Kappa squad 12
0, but all members of those teams
are ineligible this year—pledge
classes make up the elevens.
Coaching staff for the Pi Phis
is made up of Phi Delts, with the
Fijis coaching the Kappas.
INTENSIVE TRAINING SET
Asked about his outlook on the
game perennial Phi Head Coach
“Bull-Voiced” Elwin Paxson growl
ed, “We gotta fightin' team.” This
didn’t clear up the situation much.
Paxson explained that training
rules of no more than a quart of
beer per day and bed-checks at 11
each night have caused some dis
sention on the squad.
Kappa Coach Vince (Weepy)
Dulcich lifted his head out of the
crying towel long enough to moan,
“Honest, we’re just mediocre.”
Cheering up a bit, he did admit
that the team looked like it was in
With only 10 girls making up
his squad, Dulcich is worried about
manpower for the gruelling battle.

Statistics Show 'You Can't Win'
In Football Forecast Betting
By Walter Dodd
You can’t win.
That is what the math depart
ment found after studying the odds
given by the All American Football
This football parley sheet, which
was widely distributed on the cam
pus for several weeks gives odds
of 1000 to 1 to pick and spot 16
The math department found
that the actual odds were 334,000
to 1 on picking 16 winners. You'll
get back three cents for each $10
spent on the average.
Your best bet, if you can call it
that, will pay back 36 cents on the
dollar. All you have to do is pick
and spot three teams.
The football betting was operated
through various campus and Eu
gene merchants. A minimum bet
of 50 cents was required. The mer
chants took 10 per cent of the take.
The parley sheets have not been
seen in Eugene and on the campus
for the last several weeks.
In the event that you are won

for a while at least.
Chief of Police Keith L. Jones of
Eugene and Lane County District
Attorney E. E. Luckey Monday
night told the Eugene City Council
that no state law prohibits book
making on football games, boxing
matches, or other such events.
State statutes prohibit lotteries,
gambling with cards, dice or other
devices and rule out bookmaking
on horses and animal races, the
council was informed. The state
constitution prohibits gambling.
However, there has been no judi
cial determination as to whether
bookmaking on football games is
skill or gambling.
Just in case if you get any big
ideas of going into business, a
proposal to ban all forms of book
making is currently before the ju
diciary committee of the city
council. Action is expected in sev

throw away your money, you can
