Lead in Congress
Despite GOP Gains
Compiled from the Associated Press
By Phil. Bettens
Tuesday’s election turned into a Republican sweep, cutting the
Democrats’ control in Congress to a slim majority and nearly
equalizing the number of Republican-Democratic governors.
President Truman’s party lost five senate seats, making the
new Senate lineup 49 Democrats to 47 Republicans. They pre
viously had a 53-43 advantage.
in the House, Republicans pick
ed up 26 seats to give them a
total of 196. The Democrats,
however, still hold control with
231, more than the 218 majori
ty. Seven contests were still in
doubt late Wednesday.
In the states, Republicans won
five governorships while losing
two. Two contests are still unde
cided; the Democrats will have to
capture both to gain a 24-24 split,
The old balance was 29-19 for the
Some familiar faces will be miss
ing from the halls of Congress:
Vito Marcantonio, the leftist Con
gressman from New York City for
14 years, was finally defeated by
a three-party coalition. His re
placement is James G. Donovan,
self-styled “moderate democrat.”
Elbert Thomas, chairman of the
Senate Labor Committee, was de
feated in Utah by Republican Wal
lace F. Bennett. It was a blow to
labor unions, who regarded him as
one of the best friends organized
labor had in Congress.
Scott Lucas, Senate majority
leader from Illinois, was defeated
by Republican Everett M. Dirk

The Homecoming alumni at
tendance cup goes this year to
Alpha Tau Omega who had the
largest percent of alumni pre
sent for Homecoming.
This is not the first time Al
pha Tau Omega has won the
cup. Records reveal that they
have won it consistently for the
last five years. <
Registered attendance for the
1950 Homecoming was five
hundred alumni. However the
actual number attending cannot
^be estimated as a large percent
did not register. Les Anderson,
Alumni Director, stated that
“the VVSC Homecoming week
end was very well attend and
proved to be very successful.”
Fall term rushing will begin
with freshmen signup Saturday,
according to Bill Harber, Inter
fraternity Council president.
Although the IFC was to meet
late Wednesday night to work out
complete details of the rushing
program, Harber indicated that
the IFC would probably approve
the plan as it has been tentative
ly proposed in informal IFC dis
The IFC, said Harber, expects
to complete rushing by Thursday,
with freshmen picking up bids
The general rushing procedure
will be the same as that followed
in past years. Principle problem
to be definitely worked out by
IFC regards the times during
which fraternity houses will hold
“With studying to be consid
ered, the IFC has to set times
which won’t interfere with either
classes or studying for both fra
ternities and freshmen,” Harber
The proposed idea is that rush
ing functions will be limited to
luncheons, dinner and evening
dates until 7 p.m.
No freshmen will be allowed to
have more than two rush dates a
day, and no more than four dates
during the rushing period with any
Freshmen are classed as any
student with 36 hours or less. The
requirement for rushing is that
the freshmen must have a four
prep decile, or, if he is a transfer
freshmen from another college, a
two point GPA.
All freshmen who intend to go
through with rushing must sign
up Saturday afternoon in Gerling
er Annex to check eligibility. Eligi
bility cards will be checked Satur

While in Seattle for UO-UW Game
From the look on the faces of
Washington gridders after their
whipping by California, this week’s
game may be more interesting
than one is willing to admit.
Regardless, Washington is rath
er demoralized and many Univer
sity of Oregon students are plan
ning on dropping in on Seattle
and livening up the city. That is,
of course, while attending the
game in the hopes of seeing an
Invitations to attend the game
and stay at living organizations
has been extended by Husky fra
ternities and sororities to many
*Ort“gon Greek houses. Many stu
dents will take up this invitation
and leave for Seattle Thursday
evening and Friday morning.
Students who are not familiar
with Seattle and who have no idea
where the campus is are urged to
follow signs stating “This way to
the University of Washington
campus.” If these signs cannot be
found then go to the Northeast
side of Seattle and the campus
and stadium will be found near the
outskirts of the city.
Students are forewarned that
there is danger of getting lost in
the city. This danger is greater
on the campus. In fact rumor has
it that students passing from one
class to another are sometimes lost
and never heard of again. The cam
pus is large.
When on the campus be sure
to go to the “Hub” Husky Union
Building. It’s fabulous.
Other places to visit in Seattle
are the Marine Room of the Olym
pic Hotel. Students interested in
the sea will find this place very
enjoyable as a huge pool displays
many kinds of tropical fish.
Of course a “don’t miss” spot
for outdoor enthusiasts is the
Rough Rider room in the Roose
velt Hotel. Here that urge to ride
a bucking bronco can be fullfilled
in an orderly manner as all seats
at the bar are saddles.
The Washington stadium cannot
be missed by a passerby as it is
marked by its striking new archi
tectural design. Large white pillars
support the structure because it
is constantly battered by territir
winds. The seating capacity of the
stadium is estimated to be 55,000.
Oregon students are reminded to
take their parkas as most of the
seats ate not covered.
Tlie final highlight of a trip to
Seattle would be a visit to the
Outrigger club. Finished in South
Sea atmosphere it will appeal to
Incidentally the best way to
Seattle is to go north through
Portland. The suggestion is made
that students leave early, say
Thursday morning, and stay at
least one night in Portland. Night
life in this city is also unusual and
Plans for Dance,

for1 the annual mixer dance to be

The group also considered a wel

ing the proposed fall rush period.
Neil Matheson, Dick Rampton and
Fred Baltz were appointed to look,
into the possibility of such a dance
early in winter term.
Bill Paulus was elected by the
council to act as a “go-between”
with Junior Pan-Hellenic to bet
ter co-ordinate activities of the
Members of all committees are
asked by Bills to meet at 4 p.m.
