"Fall Rushing for Men Okayed
UO Chest Drive
As Yet $900
Shy of Quota
The campus Community Chest
drive, on its last day, lacks $900
of completing its assigned quota,
according to figures reported by
N. H. Cornish, head of the faculty
jl ‘‘So far we have collected 77 per
cent of our $4,000 quota,” Dr.
Cornish said. “The flood and the
election have hindered the drive
and we are all going to have to
dig to reach our goal. We still
have a chance if those who have
not yet jpade their gifts give as
generously as those people who
have already given.”
Mike Lally, off-campus chair
man, announced that $20.40 in cash
and $3 in pledges had been collect
ed from the housing projects across
from Hayward Field and at Skin
ner’s Butte. Workers from down
town Eugene are covering the
Amazon Flats area.
A total of $42.44 was donated
at booths in the SU and the Co-op,
Lillian Schott, booth chairman,
said today.
The drive has been publicized
by Stu Richardson, promotion
chairman. Flying speeches, five
minute talks and bulletin board
notices have been used to attract
campus attention.
Howe Field Repairs Due
In Time for Baseball
Howe Field will be repaired and ready for baseball season,
according to Leo Harris, director of athletics.
He said that if the weather permits trucks on the field, the re
pair work will be accomplished in plenty of time. “But the field
will be ready even if we have to do it by hand,” he said. “We can’t
take a chance on injuries caused by turned ankles.”

time to look into the possibility
that all of the responsible fresh
men had not reported, but he in
tends to clear up the issue before
it is dropped.
“I am pleased with the response

Democrat Losses
Large in Congress
Republican leaders triumphed
and Democratic kingpins went
tumbling Wednesday in mounting
returns from Tuesday’s nationwide
The Republican leadership team,
Robert A. Taft of Ohio and Eugene
D. Millikin of Colorado, swept to
victory in a record off-year ballot
ing that bolstered GOP strength
in both houses of Congress.
Taft easily defeated Democratic
state auditor Joseph D. Ferguson,
who was backed by a solid Demo
crat-labor coalition, while Millikin,
a Taft lieutenant, won reelection
over “fair dealer’’ John A. Carroll.
However, in Missouri, Republican
Senator Forrest C. Donnell, a thorn
in the side of the Truman adminis
tration, trailed Democrat Thomas
C. Hennings, Jr.
Several big name Democrats
were blotted from the political
scene, at least temporarily.
Down to defeat went Senator
Scott Lucas of Illinois, Senator
Millard Tydings of Maryland, and
Governor Chester Bowles of Conn
ecticut, “fair dealer’’ and former
OPA chief.

E. Dewey swept to reelection for
