Registration totals stood at
about 4200 when pre-class regis

Last year the 4,800 figure was
reached the first Monday after

Incoming Director of Men's Affairs
Puts Emphasis on Giving Assistance
There’s a change in the Office
of Men's Affairs this year.
He’s Norman Ray Hawk, who
prefers to be known as “Ray.”
He replaces Vergil Fogdall, who
has held the office of director of
men’s affairs for the past three
Fogdall has accepted a position
as director of students at Lewis
and Clark College.
The new man who will be re
sponsible for administering the
University’s discipline code for
men is a graduate of the Univer
sity, having received a doctor of
education degree in 1949.
Hawk was a major in the Air
Force during the war and present
ly holds that rank in the Air Force
Reserve. He served as counsellor'
of men under Fogdall during the
latter’s three years as director of

Council, SU Board
Ask Friday Night
la.m. Closing Hour
Oregon may have 1 o'clock closing hours on Friday nights if
legislation before the University’s Student Affairs committee is
approved at the committee's next meeting early in October.
ASL O President Barry Mountain asked the board to consider
the move after it was approved by members of both the ASUO
Executive Council and the Student Union Board.
Oregon is the only large school on the Pacific coast which has

made up of four student and six
faculty members, tabled the pro

Two-fold In Purpose
The proposal, which has arisen
at various times for the last seve
ral years, is two-fold in purpose,
Mountain said Friday.
Oregon’s crowded social schedule
would get relief under the later
hour, for one thing. It would mean
that many big-name dance bands
passing through Eugene could be
engaged on Saturday nights which
otherwise would' be filled with

The other purpose which Moun

For Old Gossip
The gossip column, as such, is
A new feature, dubbed “Cam

to carry all the campus news that
is news to Emerald readers with
out falling into the disgrace of
being labeled “gossip.”
The “Merry-go-round”, which
is tentatively scheduled for inaug
uration Friday, will report all
phases of news that pertains to
each living organization, with the
exception of sports.
All University living groups will
be contacted individually this
week, and informed of just what
the “Merry-go-round” is interest
ed in printing, and how the news
items are to be channeled to the
Fundamentally, the most im
portant feature of the column is
that each living group is respon
sible for its own coverage. One
member or contact should be de
signated by each group, so that the
individual may become familiar
with Emerald requirements.
Under the “Merry-go-round”
plan no group can register a com
plaint about unfair coverage since
it will be up to each and every
living organization to keep itself
in the news.
