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.

Missed Priesthood Di Stefano barely missed priest hood, the vocation selected for him by his parents, because of a fate ful visit home when he happened to see a very beautiful girl. This stopped his interest in study. How ever, the story does not go on to the traditional ending, because he married an American girl two years ago. After a varied course of work, including hawking newspapers, working in a factory, and becom (Please turn to page eight) were in an enect running for presi dent.
