Exec Council Appoints
Two Court Members
The last two appointments for
the Student Court were made by
the Executive Council Monday
night.
Following the appointments, the
council heard the opinion of council
adviser Donald M. DuShane con
cerning the petition and interview
that was the basis of the council’s
judgment.
The council also appointed a
Campus Entertainment Chairman
and assistants.
Fred A. Risser, fifth year law,
and Ralph E. Hillier, junior in pre
law, were appointed to fill the last
two vacancies on the Student
Court.
When interviewed, Risser men
tioned that “parking stickers are
doing more harm than good to
users. . .that the court has ques
♦fbn'ed legality, and a positive pro
gram was needed to keep the stu
dents from fighting the court.”
Hillier, junior in pre-law, trans
ferred from Grays Habor College in
Aberdeen, Wash. Meticulous speak
ing Hillier said that “the court
needs more publicity. . .the sum
mons should be publicized so the
students will take the court more
seriously.”
DuShane, who is director of stu
dent affairs, commented, after the
appointments had been made, that
the detrimental stickers that Ris
ser mentioned conferred parking

Ye Olde Halloween...
“Tricke or treate! Give ye to
the spirite of All Hallows Eve!”
Could these have been the
cries of our pagan ancestors
several centuries past? They
were the originators of Hallo
ween. For them it meant a festi
val the night before All Saints
Day.
It is unknown how the festi
vities were planned, but can't
you imagine young knaves
sporting Cambridge rooter’s lids
running from castle to castle
begging moldy lamb hones for
anatomy projects? Or racing
across foggy moors on souped
up nags. . .
Well, that’s one conception.
Tonight maybe another concep
tion will come up, Twentieth
century version, as the “kids”
celebrate Halloween.
Float Themes Due
Themes of noise parade floats
must be turned in today by 5
p.m. to Roger Nudd, Sigma Al
pha Epsilon.

ion and Reunion.”
Close 'Veep' Race
Sees Scott Win
W ayne Carothers pulled down a land-slide number of votes in
Monday's elections to become president of the freshman class.
l>ob Scott, polling- the second highest number of votes, became
vice-president.
On the secretary-treasurer ballot, Barbara Keclcn collected 120
votes to gain the office of secretary. Dawn Wood trailed her with
90 votes to become treasurer.
A total of 370 ballots were
marked out of a possible 1220. Car
others was ahead in the counting
all the way, polling a total of 90
votes.
The presidential race was close
only between Scott and his de
feated opponents. The new vice
president had 35 votes to his near
est rival’s 34.
Carothers, a resident of Nestor
Hall, graduated from Klamath Un
ion High School. During his prep
career he was president of the
junior class and the student body.
He also headed the Oregon High
School International Relations
League, and was this year’s junior
governor of the state.
Speaking before a freshman class
assembly Sunday night in the ball
room of the Student Union, Car
others outlined his plan for a fresh
man council. He told the group
such a council would bring about a
better understanding of the class
members with each other and
would foster more ideas between
them.
Vice-president Scott is also a
graduate of Klamath high where he
was president of the radio honor
ary. A resident of Sherry Ross
Hall, Scott told class members in
their Sunday meeting of his plat

Alaskan Storm Expected,
Eugene 'Mops Up' From Last
Red Cross Busy
As River Floods
Nearly 1,000 persons were shelt
ered by the Red Cross Sunday
night while the receding Willa
mette river withdrew from their
homes.
The river crested at 15.9 feet
Sunday evening, which is about
four feet above flood stage and a
record October high.
The storm lashed the Northwest
and isolated many Oregon and
northern California cities.
Lane County residents are still
surprised by the swiftness of last
weekends flood because it “just
don’t flood here in October.” A
trailer camp near Dexter was first
to feel the effects of the high
water. After that it was just a
matter of hours until the Glen
wood area, between Eugene and
the Springfield bridge, was under
three feet of water.
Highway 99 south through Glen
wood was closed to traffic Sun
day noon and the Ferry Street
bridge closure earlier in the day
isolated residents in that area.
Both routes were opened Monday

A new Alaskan storm is expected here today, according to the
United States Weather Bureau. Flood-conditions are not expect
ed to result, however, because this store will be “just the usual
thing.’’
Damage from the last storm was wide and varied. The first big
gusts downed two trees on the south side of 13th between Uni
versity and Kincaid streets.
tiarry u. jacohy, assistant sup
erintendent of the physical plant,
reported that “the trees were
sound, but they had been damaged
by the snow last winter.”
“We have been eyeing them sus
piciously ever since the snow bent
them, but we hadn’t removed them
because it is necessary to obtain
President Newburn’s approval,” he
explained. He attributed their fall
to a combination of loosening of
the roots by the heavy rain and
last years snow damage.
One large tree in front of John
son Hall was toppled by heavy
winds Friday afternoon, falling
across the hood of a car driven by
Duane Hogue, third year liberal
arts student. No one was injured.
Amazon creek was swollen to a
raging torrent by the heavy rains,
and waves licked around the
foundations of lQw-lying units in
the University’s Amazon Housing
Project. Residents relieved by re
