Justice Will Out;
Koke-Chopman Lose
In Millrace Fiasco
By Bill Stanfield
He who laughs last, laughs loud
est, and the last twist of the cat’s
tail gives the loudest howl, as Cer
vantes’ lovable character Sancho
Panza would say.
Last year, a local business con
cern, the Koke-Chapman company,
began filling in the lower end of
, Eugene’s historic millrace in prep
I aration for construction of a serv
ice station.
j Indignant University students
threw a futile road barricade in
Upstest over the proposed defama
I tion of the colorful stream site and
prevented trucks from dumping
loads of dirt into the stream bed.
' But Eugene-style justice won
and the millrace was filled in. Not
all was lost, however, as a culvert
‘was laid under the fill to allow
water to flow through when the
millrace should be filled again.
With its tongue in its cheek, the
Eugene Zoning Committee recently
refused to allow the Koke-Chap
man company to build a service
station at the site of the fill.

Lest You Disobey
Old Traditions
Due to the “staggering” number
of violators apprehended on Mon
day, the Order of the O has given
one day of grace, Monday, and will
observe traditions starting today
and continuing throughout the
week, stated Bob Don, chairman of
traditions, Monday.
Traditions are:
1. Class pants for underclass
men — freshmen may wear any
thing but cords and jeans; sopho
mores may wear anything but
2. No smoking on old campus.
3. No walking on grass any
where on the campus.
4. “Hello” on “Hello Walk” be
tween Villard and Fenton Halls.
5. Freshman girls wear green
ribbons in their hair.
6. Freshman men wear green
and yellow rooters’ lids.
In view of this delay, the dunk
iifg and hacking will start at 12:30
p.m. Wednesday on the stairs of
Fenton Hall. All violators should
appear at that time or face the
consequences of being “hunted
down” at the game Saturday.
Oregon State Asks
For Physical Ed
Major in Corvallis
Oregon State alumni presented
an appeal to the State Board of
Higher Education Friday and Sat
urday in Portland to add a physi
cal education major to the OSC
The brief will come before the
regular curriculum meeting of the
board in January, President Edgar
W. Smith said. It asks that a phys
ical education major under the ed
ucation department be introduced
in the graduate as well as under
graduate level.
Proponents of the idea state
that no new money, nor staff, nor
even new degree will be involved
in granting the major. They em
phasize that under the present
system, OSC athletes are handi
capped when they seek jobs be
cause they lack the technicality
of a major in physical education,
which is given at the University of
R. W. Leighton, dean of the
school of Health and Physical Edu

make a statement on the effect
such a change in the OSC curri

Puddles Shuffles
Between Phi Sigs
It looked like a game of “now
you see him, now you don't” for
awhile Saturday, but Puddles, Ore
gon’s webfooted mascot, is now
safe at home in Eugene.
Overwhelmed by a human flood
of California students after Satur
day’s game at Berkeley, Puddles
was borne away by trimphant
Golden Bears. The Oregon mascot
ended up at the Cal Phi Sigma
Kappa chapter house.
Infiltrating among the ranks of
their southern fraternity brothers,
Oregon Phi Sigs retrieved the
duck, only to have it restolen by
the stubborn Californians.
Puddles was again imprisoned in
the Phi Sig house, where prepara
tions were under way for a house
dance that night. Finally the mas
cot was placed on the fraternity
house roof.
Dim moonlight early Sunday
morning revealed four Oregon Phi
Sigs—Delbert Fennel, Dean Mer
ton, Bob Huey, and Bob Hubert—
storming the roof, at 2 a.m., they
recaptured Puddles, whisked her
to their awaiting limousine, and
took off for Eugene.
So Puddles is back, little the
worse for wear but taking a rest
cure to prepare himself for the
OSC game this Saturday.
Weather . . .
Partly cloudy weather is pre
dicted for today and Wednesday by
the weather bureau. Fog will roll
in during nights.
To Play Dance

now being sold at the Co-op and

women’s service honorary. They
cost 10 cents.
