As Students Trek Homeward
The last great fall term student exodus from the campus begins to

Class cancellations through Saturday leave the way clear for
hundreds of Oregon students bent on a four-day holiday.
Remaining reminder of scholarly pursuits, the library, will be open
Fiiday and Saturday to accomodate persons combining feasting with
bookwork. Campus living organizations, however, will be all but desert

Oregana to Emphasize University Expansion;
More Pages, New Cover, Art Work Planned
Growth of the University will be
one of the main themes of the 1950
Oregana, Editor Larry Davidson
said yesterday in a general report
on the yearbook.
“With all the new buildings, and
the general expansion and im
provement of the school, I feel
that we should have an annual to
match the tempo,” Davidson
stated. “It’s with this idea in mind
that we’re editing the book.”
Several innovations will appear
in next year's Oregana. Among
them will be a new treatment
given to the cover. The customary
four-color picture will be retained,
but with a difference. That differ
ence is an Oregana secret.
The 1950 edition will be larger
than the previous one. It will total
408 pages. Only the 1949 Oregana,
424 pages, was larger.
“Even with the added pages, it’s
a tight fit,” Davidson declared.
“Several new campus organiza
tions have purchased space in the
COMPLETE 60 PAGES
By the end of the term the staff
will have completed 60 pages.
These include activities of last
spring, summer session, and fall
term through Homecoming.
Layouts on the living organiza
tions section will begin winter
term. Two separate layouts will
be used for men’s and women’s or
ganizations. The men’s section will
be done with green second color,
the women’s with red.
HIGH CALIBRE ART WORK
“One of the big reasons for the
expected success of the book is
the high calibre of our art work,”
explained Davidson. “We are in
cluding appropriate sketches along
with our layouts.”
Art work is under the super
vision of Shirley Gilbert, who is
also technical adviser.
The business side of the Ore
gana reports 3510 copies of the
book sold so far this year—nearly
300 more than at the same time
last year. During the recent Ore
gana “late sales” drive, 400 copies
toix coeds were named Tuesday
by Phi Sigma Kappa as finalists
in the annual "Moonlight Girl”

Vital to DuShane Plan
The Interdorinitory Council

“favor inclusion” of deferred rush

ald, Fryer said.
TEXT OF LETTERS
University President Harry K.
Newburn and the Office of Stu
dent Affairs received letters yes
terday which were drafted by the
group. They said:
“We unanimously approve the
basic concepts of the ‘DuShano
Plan.’ However, we do not believe
that, the plan is workable or ac
ceptable to the majority of the
dormitory students unless deferred
rushing is incorporated.
“In voting for deferred rushing
the council also unanimously ad
vocated that the rushing be post
poned until the beginning of a
student’s sophomore year in a
manner similar to the present
President Newburn told the Em
erald yesterday that the Univer
sity administration would work
out the details of its policy with
the students, but that he person
ally favored deferred rushing.
WORK WITH STUDENTS
“We arc committed to working
it out with the students and we in
tend to abide by that basic policy,”
Mr. Newburn said.
He added that it would be “a
better policy from every viewpoint
if the plan were coupled with de
Fred Van Horn, president of the
Interfraternity Council said Tues
