VOLUME LI UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2,1950 NUMBER 73 Faculty Lifts Term Hour Restrictions Minimum and maximum limits for study loads were abolished by the faculty Wednesday in passing a motion recommended by the Spe cial Committee for the Study of Academic Regulations. The motion repeals former legis lation which allowed no student to register for less than 12 hours or more than 19, without the approval ^•of the Academic Requirements Committee and the dean of the school in which he is registered. According to this old rule, no student could register for more than 19 hours unless his grade point average was 3.00 for the pre ceding term. Final point of the motion makes it possible for a student to receive credit for all hours in which he receives a passing grade, with no other specified GPA necessary for full credit. The committee suggesting the motion began work last December and is making a thorough study, with the aim to clarify and im prove present academic require ments. C. F. Weigle, dean of the School of Journalism, is chairman.

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 ganized class. “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 plained. 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 class unity. Audience Spellbound; Well, at Least Bound Sure-fire method ^to hold an au dience was demonstrated at the University library lecture forum last night when someone chained the outside doors shut. No one was able to enter or leave the building for a period of 20 minutes while the shackles were cut through. A hack saw found in the Audio-Visual department was used to open the first door while a call was being put through to the physical plant for help. * * * Paillette Emphasizes 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 man Hall. 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 the class. “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. Ed Anderson, ASUO vice-presi dent who presided at the meeting, closed the assembly with a brief explanation of Oregon's system of preferential voting. Slight Temperature Rise Due Tonight More sub-zero cold in Eastern Washington and Oregon and be low freezing weather in the wes tern portions of the Northwest was forecast tonight by the weather bureau.

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 decorating. 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 nent workers.
