Veterans Need OK
To Change Majors
Prior approval from the Veterans Administration is required,
as of winter term, for veterans who desire to change their major
from one school to another within the University, James 1).
Kline, assistant registrar, stated Wednesday.
To those changing majors within the College of Liberal Arts,
the rule would not apply. A change from the School of Business
Administration to the School of Journalism would require ap
pi UVeil.
Any. student who fails to
comply with the ruling may be
subject to full payment of all
educational expenses for the
period he enrolled in the new
school without VA approval.
The Administration will not ac
cept retroactive approval.
- Veterans contemplating a change
in major are urged by Kline to
obtain application blanks at the
veterans’ counter in Emerald Hall
and fill them out immediately.
Students applying for their first
change of major are assured of re
ceiving approval, according to the
VA. However, the Administration
may do one of three things con
cerning those desiring to change
for the second or more times:
(1) It may give full approval,
(2) require counseling and guid
ance to determine whether or not
the student should make the
change, or (3) refuse to approve
the change.
The change was announced dur
ing Christmas vacation at a spec
ial meeting in Portland attended
by Kline. Previously such detailed
attention regarding courses ap
plied only to disabled veterans
under Public Law 16. Now the
law has been broadened to pertain
to all veterans attending universi
ties and colleges.

Movies, Reports
Are Discussed
By Union Board
At its regular weekly meeting
Wednesday afternoon, the Student
Union Board considered six major
items of business. The board:
1. Decided to limit attendance at
Wednesday night movies to mem
bers of the “University family’’—
students and faculty members.
2. Slated election of a permanent
chairman and secretary of the
group for their next meeting.
3. Heard a report concerning let
ters sent to universities throughout
the country requesting information
on the functioning of their program
committees and general informa
tion on the operation of their stu
dent unions.
4. Heard a report from the orga
nization committee which is inves
tigating possible methods of setting
up permanent machinery for con
tinuing the student union board
and of getting- help from students
not on the board.
5. Discussed allocation of the fil
ing, desk, and room space which
will be available to some campus
groups in the new Union Building.
6. Named Ed Peterson, junior in
music, to head' an orientation com
mittee, which will take steps to ac
quaint the student body with the
activities of the student union
Reason for limiting the attend
ance at the Wednesday movies is
the overcrowding in room 207
Chapman, which has recently be
come acute. The board considered
having simultaneous showings in
Chapman and some other building,
but this was considered impracti
cable, as it would require another
room and running the reels from
one building to another as they
were completed.
The elections scheduled for next
week will select permanent succes
sors for Les Jones, who has been
temporary chairman, and Olga
Yevtich, assistant to the student
union director, who is not a board
member but has been serving as
secretary of the group during its
formative stages.
Jim Wallace, member of the pro
gram committee (headed by An
toinette Kuzmanich, who was ab
sent), reported that letters had
been sent to 36 representative uni
versities throughout the country,
tivities, and functions of the pro
gram committees of their student
inquiring into the organization, ac
unions. The letters also solicited
any general information which
might aid the Oregon group.
