Frosh Choose Candidates
For Forthcoming Elections
AGS Man Stresses
Fall Term Elections
Stressing earlier freshman par
ticipation in University activities,
Don Denning, Beta Theta Pi, ad
vocated fall term elections for
freshman class officers when he
addressed Oregon frosh at the
freshman nominating assembly in
Chapman Hall Wednesday.
Denning, AGS candidate for the
number one freshman post, was
nominated by Jack Byers.
“Make the class of '53 the class
of unity,” were the words of Jackie
Wilkes, AGS candidate for the sec
ond position. Her nomination was
made by Jim Martin.
Among the points stressed by
Denning were the creation of a
freshman honorary, based on
achievement, a better system of
vocational guidance, and organiza
tion of a freshman ski club.
Pointing out the advantages of
fall elections, Denning maintained
that freshmen needed to become
active as soon as possible on the
campus. He expressed his wish to
see the freshmen responsible for
“Frosh Glee,” working as an or
“Now is the time to build the
foundation for our future at the
University. We must show our
selves to the school now,” he ex
Supporting Denning’s program,
Miss Wilkes advocated the com
bination of AWS weekend activi
ties and the “Frosh Glee.” Other
points included a junior interdorm
itory council, for the purpose of
connecting freshman to campus
activities and the maintenance of

leave the building for a period of
20 minutes while the shackles were

physical plant for help.

Need for Class Unity
"Unity, cooperation, and organ
ization is the key to success for the
freshman class,” Don Paillette,
Campbell Club, told freshman at
the nominating assembly for fresh
man officers Wednesday in Chap
Paillette was nominated for the
number one position of the fresh
man class by Herb Cook.
Emphasizing the importance of
the freshman council to the class,
Paillette advocated the re-organi
zation of the council, using it as
the, central body of freshman ac
tivities oh the campus.
Paillette also recommended that
a non-voting freshman be elected
to the ASTJO council, giving the
frosh a voice in the central organ
ization of the student body.
“When the class has established
unity, organization and coopera
tion will follow, as will successful
freshman activities such as the
"Frosh Glee,” Paillette maintained.
Seconding Paillette’s sugges
tions for the class of '53, Helen
Jackson, USA candidate for. the
number two post in the class,
stressed the importance of volun
tary participation by members of
“If freshman representatives are
chosen on the basis of interest and
willingness to expend their ener
gies for the good of the class, more
unity and closer organization will
result,” she maintained.

closed the assembly with a brief
explanation of Oregon's system of

Carson Dining Room Opens Doors
By MARJORY BUSH
Another phase in University his
tory was made last night when Car
son Hall initiated its immaculate
new dining room.
Climaxing months of worlc, and a
final frenzied week completing de
tails, the dining room opened as
scheduled. President and Mrs.
Harry K. Newburn were special
guests of housemother, Mrs. Edna
Stokes, and the dormitory counse
lors for the first dinner.
The dining room itself, has a ca
pacity of 350, according to Foods
Director H. P. Barnhart. It is high
lighted by full-length windows at
one end and half of one side. Flow-1
ered draperies carry out the color
scheme of teal, cream, and bright
rose. Interior decorator was Brow
nell Frasier, professor of interior
Carson residents ate their first
meal of home-made apple pie and
roast pork on oak tables seating
four. Chairs are of maple, covered
with teal blue Duran plastic. The
accoustical-treated ceiling has in
direct lighting. An outstanding fea
ture of the room is its parquet floor
of red oak hardwood.
Food service will be cafeteria
style, except for Thursday dinners ;
when there will be table service.
This will not be started until next
week, Barnhart said.
However, the dining room is real
ly only the superficial part of the
Carson Hall food service, as Barn
hart pointed out.
The kitchen, replete with all new
stainless steel equipment, has every
contrivance from electric hot food
units to giant food choppers and
three walk-in coolers to make meal
planning more efficient for Mrs.
Effie Taylor, supervisor for the
Carson dining room.
If one follows the dirty dishes by
subveyor to the basement, still an
other, and larger, department ap
pears. Here is the dish-washing
room, where a dumb waiter waits
to carry clean and sterilized dishes
back to the first floor from the
double-tank dish washer.
The basement has the central
bakery for all campus dormitories,
except Hendricks Hall. Here also is
the butcher shop, where a full-time
man will be employed. A general
store room, resembling a wholesale
warehouse with its piles of canned
goods, stretches over a good share
of the basement.
Other special basement rooms
are those for vegetable prepara
tion, which includes the potato
peeler, the vegetable storage room,
and the garbage can washing room.
All are of cement and are easily
cleaned. In this downstairs depart
ment, ice can be produce by the ice
machine at the rate of one ton per
day, Barnhart said.
At the truck entrance, are scales
to weigh incoming meat and other
goods. Inside is a freight elevator
to carry these products to the kit
chen when needed.
Making this network of machin
ery and food cooperate to serve
more than 300 girls three meals a
day, besides performing duties for
the entire dormitory system, is a
staff of 14 students and 10 perma
