Last Chance Set
Last chance to buy Oreganas
begins today, Bob Schooling, busi
ness manager has announced.
Subscriptions will be on sale in
every living organization by Ore
gana house representatives. The
book will also be sold from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. in the Co-op and Stu
dent Union, and evenings in the SU.
“This is positively the last
chance for everyone to buy the
Oregana,” Schooling said. “Our
budget must be completed by Nov.
15, and the Oregana cannot under
take the possibility of ordering
books which will not be sold.’’
Schooling added that he would
like to continue sales on the year
book throughout the year, but the
gamble is more than the budget
of the Oregana allows.
The announcement by School
ing concerns only students who
have not yet ordered the Oregana.
Many students placed complete or
partial orders for the book dur
ing- registration. These orders are
not affected by the last chance
announcement, he said. The re
mainder of the money for partially
paid for Oreganas will be collect
ed during winter term registration.
Salesmen in living organizations
will receive free copies of the

Osborn’s main experience in
housing and town building is on
the business side. He has been
concerned with the town plan, land
disposals, building houses, and
factories and shops in many lead
ing cities of England.
The expansion of cities and the
problems which face every large
city will be the general subject
of Osborn’s lecture. The New

towns are to be built with Govern
ment financing will be illustrated
in his talk.
The advocation of controlled
lands and its effect on modern
industrialism will also be explained.
Included in Osborn’s literary
contributions are, “Overture to
Planning,” “The Land and Plan
ning,” and “Green Belt Cities.”
Before his visit to Oregon, Os
born spoke at Harvard, Massa
chusetts Institute of Technology,
Columbia University, Cornell Uni

Executive Council Hears
Report on Poor Progress
Of Red Feather Drive
he Executive Council heard an unfavorable report on the
progress of the Community Chest Drive at Monday night’s meet
ing in the Student Union.
Also receiving council action were :
1. Approval of four additional members be appointed to the
2. An intramural championship “Sports Night” to be sport
sorea by the Executive Council.
3. Discussion of having students’
pictures on student body cards.
4. An Executive Council delega
tion to be sent to the Oregon Feder
ation of Collegiate Leaders at Ore
gon State College.
5. Amount of salaries for the AS
UO president and his secretary.
Barbara Stevenson, co-chairman
of the student division of the Com
munity Chest Drive said, “It’s go
ing to take about one dollar per
student to attain the $4,000 goal
that has been set. Many of the
living organizations have made
very poor donations—particular
ly some of the men’s.”
She said that the total collect
ed to date was short of the half
way mark and only two days are
left in the drive.
ASUO President Barry Moun
tain pointed out that the Rally
Board was too small to work ef
fectively. He suggested that more
members be appointed from the
sophomore and freshman classes
to help plan rallies a year ahead
and provide better continuity in
“This would keep many of the
members over for the following
year, and make it possible to plan
in advance possibly for Executive
Council approval,” Mountain ex
The council approved the pro
posal. Petitions will be accepted
at the ASUO office through this
week. The appointment of four
new members will bring the total
of the board to nine.
The council favored the holding
of a “Sports Night,” sometime dur
ing winter term, that will be open
to the public. It would feature
championship teams and individ
uals in competition with those of
other schools. Proceeds will be
delegated to student organizations.
