Look Both Ways
Rushing regulations have traditionally been left up to the
Inter-Fraternity Council and Panhellenic at Oregon, because
in the past it has been the sororities and fraternities that have
been most greatly effected by rushing procedures.
Next year, however, with deferred living in effect, the rush
ing practices of the fraternities and sororities will not effect
themselves only, but will have a great effect on the students in
Both the IFC and Panhellenic are going to discuss deferred
rushing next week. Panhellenic President Fran Robson has
hopes that some decision will be reached by her group. IFC
may also draw some conclusions.
Neither of these groups can hope to draw any valid conclu
sions if they do not consider the effect rushing will have on the
dormitories. No longer can they consider only their own side
of the question; they must consider the point of view which
dormitory students hold.
If the IFC and Panhellenic are to retain their privilege of
determining most rushing regulations, they must certainly
widen their area of discussion to include the dormitories. It
would seem advisable for these two Greek letter groups to
consult with dormitory leaders, and perhaps to invite them to
Panhellenic and IFC meetings before any final decision is
reached, so all members can hear and attempt to understand
the Independent point of view.
^ If the IFC and Panhellenic reach a decision concerning de
ferred rushing without considering all sides of the problem,
then they cannot expect the student body to believe that deci
sion to be of any value.
A satisfactory decision concerning deferred rushing can
only be reached after thorough discussion between Independ
ent Dormitory students and Sorority and Fraternity students.
For The Family
Many persons whose habit it is to attend the free Chapman
movies every Wednesday night now have fallen arches. Their
arches fell while waiting in line to get into the show. One has
to come early for either showing to get a seat.
The Student Union Board, which now sponsors the Chap
man movies, has decided to limit attendance, for the time being
at least, to members of the University family in hopes that
crowded conditions will be alleviated.
This is bad news for townspeople who have enjoyed the
series in the past, but little else could be done. The Student
Union Board investigated the possibility of showing the films
in two halls simultaneously on Wednesday nights, but no
place was available to take the overflow from 207 Chapman.
Showing the movies two nights would be expensive, incon
venient, and a load on the crowded calendar.
And so the shows are now for students only. Bring your
student body tickets.—B.H.

Who Agrees That
Dixieland is Tiresome?
by Qued yotutq,
Those of us who know jazz as the super
lative might locate our nickels and dimes in
anticipation of Norman Granz’s $25 record
album “The Jazz Scene.” It includes Ralph
Burns’ own favorite orchestration featuring
the Bill Harris trombone. Also, a Coleman
Hawkins tenor splo “Sono”, sans rhythm ac
companiment. And many more.
According to contracts signed, this is go
ing to be a big term for popular music at the
University. Dick Williams should receive the
credit since he gets the blame for the musette
Interesting to hear the lay listener remark
that that kind of music (meaning dixieland)
gets very tiresome after awhile. We agree.
Maybe a little debate could be initiated.
June Christy creates a noteworthy contri
bution to the jazz ranks with her soulful re
membering of “April” and provocative urg
ing to “Get Happy.” The fine orchestral back
ing supplied by Pete Rugulo might lend hints
of the Kenton sounds to come.
The Student Union is looking more lifelike
with glass in the windows and all of its bricks
in place. I he taLuuous mra wnicn nas so long
served as Straub’s own Union building now
appears a little crowded on its perch. Yet, still

The Elks’ Building in Portland which even
tually grew to be one of the town’s white ele
phants has now been transformed into the
elegant Cosmopolitan club. More reverently
known as the Cosmo. Initiation fee twice that
of the more famous Multnomah club, and fea

Eddie Beach piano and Warren Black’s gui
tar in the lounge.
The Eugene Hotel opens the Crystal Room i
this coming Wednesday with dining, danc
ing, and entertainment. Closed Sundays.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Duke El
lington is not going to break-up his band.
Woody Herman is in Cuba with his small
group, the Woodchoppers. Says he’ll re-form
late this spring. Present group includes Har
ris, Conti Condoli, Don Lanphere (a new ten
or sax star), and Dave Barbour’s guitar.

KDUK Hibernation Continues in Winter
The situation over at KDUK now looks as
inviting as an unheated sleeping porch on one
of these January nights. No one officially
wants to give the project up, but for all prac
tical purposes KDUK is dead for the winter
Foremost in the reasons for the station’s
demise is lack of funds. It was planned to
have an engineer inspect facilities during the
recent holiday, and make a report on the pos
sibility of arranging the wire setup for camp
us reception. Hiring an engineer would have
cost a few hundred dollars which the radio
division does not have.
Another contributor to KDUK’s silence is a
problem now resting on the desk of the Fed
eral Communications Commission. The com
mission was supposed to rule on the fate of
campus radio stations, which because of their
interference with commercial outlets, had be
come a nuisance to the FCC. Because of pre
occupation with the television situation, the
FCC has not had a chance to rule for or
against college radio as it now stands. The
University prefers to wait for that ruling be
fore going ahead with the expense involved in
setting up a regular radio outlet.
Meanwhile, Monday will see the resump
tion of the KOAC schedule. Notable in the
first weekly log announcement, is the absence
of the most listenable of the University’s pro
grams, “Webfoot Huddle Time.” Bob Rob
erts, who ran this sports show through the
Fall, graduated after that term, and no one
has as yet appeared to take his place. Loss
of the show comes at a time when statewide
recognition was first coming to the program,
with at least a half dozen stations carrying
wire transcriptions of the football interviews.
‘Huddles” could be resumed if someone who
knows basketball, and radio interview tech
nique, could take over the 15-minute spot.
Music lovers will enjoy the University
schedule this quarter. A steady listener to lo
cal KOAC sessions will, at the end of this ser
ies, have acquired a fondness for organ music,
an acquaintanceship with the faculty and stu
dents of the School of Music, and a good dose
of band and orchestra music. Radio followers
will note that no competition is offered to the
plethora of commercial disc jockeys.
We read with wonderment
a story yesterday about a
civil service examination for
an “instrumentman.” We
trust that instrumentmen
know that their position is
connected with surveying.
Rut they were undoubtedly
surprised to learn that they
must have three years exper
ience as a “chairman” to he
eligible for the position. This
word, we discovered, before
proofreaders got bold of the
story, was to be chainman.
