others, such as the Stagehands
Union, had killed concert tours
and radio shows by making them
too expensive or otherwise impos
sible to produce.
Repudiating the fact that the
AFM is designed primarily to keep
legitimate musicians in work,
Spaeth declared that eighty per
cent of the members of the AFM
were part-time musicians. These
people held regular jobs other than
in legitimate music and earned
extra money by working as mu
sicians in their spare time.
Many Musicians Poor
Under the union plan these mu
sicians had to belong to the AFM
to play professionally. Of the other
twenty per cent, Spaeth affirmed
half were not good musicians, and
that the other ten per cent whc
were good musicians “were never
out of work.’’

For Women Oked
By Panhell, IDC
An agreement between Panliellenic and the Interdormitory
Council to hold women's rushing fall term of the students’ fresh
man year was reached at a meeting winter term, representatives
of the groups reported yesterday.
The agreement came out of two meetings held shortly before
final week winter term. They were attended by representatives
ol Panliellenic. the inter-sorority group, and representatives of
the Interdormitorv Council.
WSSF Behind
With $340Total
On Fourth Day
Approximately $340 had been
raised for the World Student Serv
ice Fund drive by Wednesday night,
with 10 houses failing to report.
“With the drive now entering
its fourth day, this is a poor show
ing,” Ed Peterson, co-chairmen
stated. “In order to meet our ex
pectations it must be greatly im
proved today and Friday.”
“The students should back WS
SF 100 per cent, Peterson declared,
"since it is the only campaign of
the year officially sponsored by
the ASUO. It is the drive from stu
dents to students.”
In Wednesday’s contest winners
and runners-up in the women’s
group Zeta Tau Alpha, first, with
$52.67 and Pi Beta Phi, with $68.85.
For the men, Stitzer Hall took first
place with $11.80, while Phi Kap
pa Psi took second with $11.30.
Judging was done on the aver
age amount given per capita in
each group. For winning first place,
ZTA will have the services of the
Sigma Alpha Epsilon freshmen as
waiters at dinner tonight. Pi Phi
will have the Phi Kappa Psis.
Since Stitzer Hall eats in the
Vets Commons, they will have en
tertainment only from Alpha Chi
Omega. The Delta Gammas will
go to the Phi Psi house.
“In keeping with a rule of the
Inter-Fraternity Council, the com
petitive arrangement of the milk
bottles in the Co-op has been re
moved from the WSSF drive,” Co
chairman Ed Peterson stated last
Some living groups have with
hold their contributions because of
the competitive aspect, which vio
lated an IFC rule.
The milk bottles will remain in
the Co-op, but will not arranged
in order.
Voting Talk Set
By Young GOP
What can be done to secure
state approval of voting in the May
primaries for students who do not
live in Eugene ?
This will be discussed by campus
Young Republicans at a 6:45 meet
ing tonight in 2 Oregon.
Group President Beldon Owens
informed the Emerald that the
1948 procedure has been changed,
and students now will not be able
to cast ballots in Eugene if their
home is located elsewhere.
The city of Eugene will take reg
istrations and accept absentee bal
lots which will be sent to the vot
er’s home precinct.
The Campus Young Republicans
are attempting to secure a change
in the plan through the state elec
tions office in Salem.
New officers will also be elected
at the meeting.
Under the terms of the agree
ment, Panhellenic will give the
"fullest cooperation” to the dormi
tories in encouraging loyalties and
cooperation of pledges living in the
Jackie Pritzen and Joan White,
representing the dormitories and
sororities respectively, conferred
Wednesday with Donald M. Du
Shane, director of student affairs,
reporting the conclusions reached
at the winter-term meeting.
They are scheduled to meet with
Mrs. Golda P. Wickham, director of
women’s affairs sometime next
week to work out details.
DuShane Statement
Mr. DuShane told the Emerald
Wednesday that “we have been
hoping for a long time that the
agreement could be reached.
"I see ho reason why it is not
possible for freshmen women to
benefit from the dormitory coun
seling programs and also from the
guidance of the sororities.
"The next step now is for Pan
hellenic and the dormitories to
meet with Mrs. Wickam to find
time to fit dormitory orientation
and soiority rushing into next
Fall's student week schedule.”
Miss Pritzen, speaking for the
dormitory group, declared that
“the women's dormitories assented
to fall term rushing to keep the is
sue from continuing indefinitely.
Rushing Advantages
“We feel that fall term rushing
has a few advantages to the dormi
tories themselves. However, with
the sororities taking the initiative
in coopex-ation between houses and
dormitories, a satisfactory system
of living-in should result.”
“Cooperation between both dorms
and houses will be essential to the
success of living-in next year.”
Joan White, newly elected presi
dent of Panhellenic, left for Vic
toria, B. C., Wednesday evening
and could not be reached for com
Frances Robeson, former presi
dent of the group, said Panhellenic
was pleased with the agreement.
"I am sure that with the coopera
tion that has been shown so far,
they will be able to work it out. I
know the cooperation will continue,
but it'll take work.”
Freshmen men will pledge the
first part of winter term, according
to a compromise reached last Jan
uary by. the Interfraternity Coun
cil and the Interdoi’mitory Council.
The policy regarding male
pledges will support the dormitory
until the sixth week of winter term
i nthe event of conflicting activi
ties. Freshmen will not play on fra
ternity intramural teams until the
sixth week of winter term.
