Kick-off Breakfast
Launches Drive
The Lane County Community Chest drive was officially un
derway today with a kick-off breakfast held at the Eugene Hotel.
Heading the student division of the appeal is ASUO President
Barry Mountain. He appointed as his lieutenants at Monday
night's Executive Council meeting Tom King, associate editor
of the Emerald, and Barbara Stevenson, president of AWS.
Although the Tarie County Community Chest appeal has in
creased 19 per cent, the Univer
sity of Oregon’s quota will be
$4,000, the same as last year’s
figure.
However, students will be ask
ed to contribute more this year
because decreasing enrollments will
require larger individual donations
if the quota is to be attained.
Cornish Chairman
N. H. Cornish, professor of busi
ness administration, is the chair
man of the Universities participa
tion in the drive. He has divided
the faculty into three groups, Cap
tains R. T. Ellickson, head of the
physics department, Paul E. Kam
bly, professor of education, and
Col. F. R. Maerdian, head of the
military and air science depart
ment, are in charge of the faculty
divisions.
E. W. Martin, assistant busi
ness manager, will captain the ad
rrynistrative department.
All members of the University
Community Chest Committee are
asked to meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday
in the Guild Theater, Johnson Hall,
to receive their assignments and
working materials. A representa
tive of the county-wide appeal
will discuss the important phases
of this year’s drive.
Appeal Through Nov. 8
The appeal, which will be held
through Nov. 8, will have a re
presentative in every living organ
ization according to Barry Moun
tain, who is chairman of the stu
dent division.
Mountain said that the bene
fits of the chest are not as far
removed from student life as many
might imagine.
“This,” he said, “is exemplified
by the recent death of Ernest Hay
cox, prominent Oregon alumnus
and key figure in obtaining funds
which made the Student Union
possible.”
Haycox died of cancer. The
American Cancer Society is just
one of the agencies that is re
ceiving increased appropriations
the chest.
“With this thought in mind we
should all give generously,” said
Mountain.

Executive Council Acts
On Freshman Elections,
Court, Dessert Schedule
freshman election machinery got a thorough overhaul at the
ASUO Executive Council meeting Monday night in the Student
Union.
Also receiving council action were the following:
1. Appointment of Student Court members and increasing its
membership.
2. A committee to investigate the Inter-Fraternity Council’s
report of the problems of deferred living.
3. The revised dessert procedure.
In revising the freshman election procedure, the council went
on record as approving the use of ballots separating candidates
into two groups. Those who wish to run for president or vice
president, and those who wish to run for secretary or treasurer.
This move was taken to prevent the possibility of a person who
wished to be secretary from being elected president which could
have happened under, the former procedure since all candidates
Call Made
On Contracts
For Oregano
Although the contract deadline
is past, several men’s living
groups, campus clubs and honor
aries have not turned in contracts
for Oregana space.
Bob Schooling, Oregana busi
ness manager, stated Monday that
these groups would have to turn
in contracts immediately if they
wish space in the 1950 book.
Space which has been allotted
for groups which had pages or
half-pages last year will be sold
to new organizations desiring
space unless contracts are return
ed, Schooling explained.
Reason for the early contract
deadline is that work on this sec
tion begins immediately, he said.

era, sings at 8 tonight at McArthur Court for the Civic Music
