After a long and not very eventful season, volleyball finally
nears the end of its rope. With champions already decided in sev
eral leagues, winners of all circuits but one will have made them
selves know'll after this afternoon’s contests.
In the “A” division, Delta Tau Delta, Delta Upsilon, Sigma
Chi, Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon have already
succeeded in nailing down the flags in their respective leagues.
In leagues Five and One, where winners are not yet decided, we
choose to opine that Beta Theta Pi and Minturn will easily cinch
the titles.
Three Flags Undecided
Only three flags are on the auction block in the “B" division.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon in League One, Minturn in Two and Chi
Psi in Five appear to have the inside tracks to the as yet unset
tled circuit championships. Phi Kappa Psi, Lambda Chi Alpha,
Delta Tau Delta, and Beta Theta Pi have already annexed titles
in the junior division.
If predictions run true to form, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Min
turn Hall should fatten their cumulative teams scores after the
volleyball playoffs. Both organizations will probably have strong
entries in the “A” and “B” divisions.
y Too Many Forfeits
^ As we see it, the only black mark against the volleyball sea
son this past few weeks has been the large number of forfeits.
Particularly noticeable is the large number of forfeits chalked up
against teams from Straub Hall and the Vet’s Dorm. At least 80
per cent of the defaults has come from these two locations. The
only excuse ofr this situation as it appears to us is that the size
of these living groups causes a difficulty for the athletic managers
in contracting players.
Fall term rushing rules specify that every freshman who
pledges a fraternity this year must give his full loyalty to the dor
mitory in intramural athletics. Will freshmen who pledge fra
ternities abide by this regulation? There are no actual means of
enforcing this law and, as we see it. only the participating fresh
men can enforce it.
Most fraternities, however, will probably form a higher opin
ion of their pledges if a little rah rah spirit is exhibited for old
Stan Ray, Alpha, and Minturn halls. This demonstration will al
low' the fraternity members to determine the amount of loyalty
they w'ill receive when these freshmen become sophomores and
move into their houses.
Help Wanted
The question of how' to select an all star volleyball team has
kept us tossing around our bunk until the w'ee hours of the, morn
ing. We have finally come upon the idea of letting team captains
pick three players who they feel are eligible for all-star recogni
tion. If any team captains have any comments to make on this
idea or have any suggestions which they feel are better, we would
appreciate all contributions. t

Army Renews
Call For Men
today announced a call for 40,000
draftees in January.
The new call brings the total
Army request to 250,000 since the
butbreak of the war in Korea.
The September and October
draft requests were for 50,000 men
in each month. The November
figure mounted to 70,000 and fell
to 40,000 for December.
All men brought into the ser
vice through the selective service
system to date have gone to the
Army. The Navy and Air Force
continue to depend upon volun
teers to build up their manpower.
The Army said the principal
reason that the draft call in Jan
uary was held to 40,000 was the
lack of space and facilities in ex
isting training camps.
Most of the 210,000 draftees
that will have been inducted by
the end of December will still be
in camp early next year, as draf
tees receive four months of basic
University of Oregon officials
said Tuesday that a student, upon
receiving induction notice, should

quest postponement of induction

will send a letter to the board

Directors to Read
French Play in SU
A French play, “The Enchanted,”
will be read at 7:30 tonight in the
Browsing Room, located in the Stu

Horace W. Robinson, associate
professor of speech and director of
the University Theater, will read
the play. Discussion will be led by
F. M. Comellack, associate profes
sor of classical languages.
In the play, written by Jean Gira
doux, a young Schoolteacher named
Isobel becomes bored with conven
tion and thinks that the dead might
teach her the ideals she should live
and die by.
As she wanders in a forest, she
meets what she believes is the ghost
of a handsome young man who kill

then presumably committed sui
With his play, Giradoux comes to
grips with the meaning of life and
death, with what men do and should
do, with what they should live and
die by, and displays the conflict be
tween skeptic and believer, realist
and romanticist, scientist and mys
Oregana Payment
Deadline Today
Today is the deadline for Ore

organizations, clubs, and honor

manager, stated.
Payments must be made be

Most organizations have paid

groups who have not turned in
their checks, Schooling explained,

and from this point the rest is up
to you.
