Five law students, living in Bar
rister Inn, have been definitely sus
pended for one term as of last
Monday. However, the Office of
Men’s Affairs and officials of the
law school are considering the
problems that have arisen out of
the suspension.
Since law majors must start
most course sequences in the fall
and carry them through a com
plete year, this one-term suspen
sion would amount to suspension
TOT a Whole year. Although the
five would be eligible to re-enroll
winter term, they could not do so
because' certain law courses can
not be started then. ...
One is English
. One of the students suspended
is an English student, whose visa
here in this country is dependent
upon his attendance in school. Sus
pension for one term could con
ceivably cancel his visa.
"Some adjustment will have to
be made in this case,” stated J.
D. Kline, associate director of stu
dent affairs and foreign student
counselor. “Everything possible
will be done so he can stay in
school, if he still wants to.”
Official Not Spying
Kline added that his discovery
of these students during their
drinking party should not be in
terpreted as “spying” or “snoop
ing” by the administration.
He had been to the Vets’ Dorms,
discussing problems with counse

Liquor Problem
Poorly Handled
“We have had reports—and very
reliable ones—that the liquor prob
lem near the campus hasn’t al
ways been handled for the best
interests of our young people.’’
That’s what Richard Reed, one
of the three commissioners of the
Oregon State Liquor Control Com
mission, said at the end of the
Wednesday morning hearing on
charges against Taylor’s Coffee
He added that he didn’t know
whether it was possible to control
the sale of liquor to minors when
taverns are “that near the Uni
UO Officials Present
Mrs. Golda P. Wickham, Ray
Hawk, and James D. Kline, all
from the University’s Office of
Student Affairs, were present at
the moi’ningjfhearing at the re
quest of the commission. Also
there were several members of the
Oregon Mothers.
After the hearing, Mrs. Glen
Porter, one of the Oregon Mothers
from Eugene, said the Mothers
have “talked about this problem
before, but it has never been open
ed up.”
Many Complain
When asked about the propor
tions of this liquor problem Wed
nesday afternoon, Director of Stu
dent Affairs Donald M. DuShane
said “we have had considerable
reaction from parents, alumni and
students, especially after the St.
Mary’s game, Homecoming, and
during and after the bonfire.”
This “reaction” has come in the
form of “personal talks, letters,
phone calls, and even some long
distance calls,” DuShane said.
In answer to the question “do
you think there has been more
drinking tnis year,” DuShane and
Mrs. Wickham both answered that
the drinking has been “more
DuShane added that there has
been "virtually no drinking in the
men’s dormitories this year, so
that may mean more outside.”
Johnson Basement
Floods Wednesday
There was nothing ‘hot’ about
the news that came from cam
pus news bureau offices in John
son Hall’s basement Wednesday.
On the contrary, theirs was a
damp situation all around.
Mrs. Jo Moore, news bureau
manager, last night reported
that water started to flood the
basement floor at 1 p.m. By late
afternoon 30 per cent of the floor
area had been covered, in some
places to a depth of six inches.
With a slight clearing of the
situation uutside, the water be
gan to recede. Soaked papers
were the only casualties.

Investigators of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission will
hold an open hearing at 1 AO p.m. today in the Eugene City Coun
cil chambers of the City hall to hear evidence in regard to minors
drinking in taverns around the University campus.
1 oday s hearing will be an extension of tevo hearings held Wed
nesday in which Hcrschel Taylor, owner of Taylor’s Coffee Shop,
and John E. Alpine, manager of the College Side Inn, were called
lG explain the presence of minors caught drinking in their estab
incuts last weekend.
Reed told reporters that evi
dence brought out at the two
Vl ednesday hearings indicated
that the problems of Taylor and
Alpine were not limited to
those of two men, hut were part
of a bigger problem that affect
ed the University, the students
and the city of Eugene.
| “Wo hope to assimilate enough
evidence from all the people con
cerned in this matter to help the
Commission in enforcing the ban on
minors' drinking,” Reed said.
No Action Until Nov. 24
Evidence gathered at today’s
hearing and at the two Wednes
day will be presented to the Ore
gon Liquor Control Commission
at its monthly meeting in Salem
Nov. 24. Reed told the Emerald
that no action would be taken
either in the case of Taylor's or
the College Side until that time.
However, said Reed, it is with
in the power of the Commission
to cancel the license of any tav
ern owner who is found guilty of
violating provisions of the Ore
gon Liquor Control Act.
Investigators at the hearing of
Alpine Wednesday afternoon learn
ed that the abnormal number of
students frequenting the taverns
makes it almost impossible for a
complete check to be made on the
frequency of minors purchasing
and consuming liquor.
This same fact, said Reed, was

Proposed Card
To Include Age
Student identification cards
which an Executive Council com
mittee has been investigating in
corporate seveial new features.
The tentative proposal is to have
each student's picture, identifica
tion and ago on the card and tho
same card would be used during
the entire year. This new card
would be both a student body card
and an activity card.
Many Problems Met
Problems facing the planner-.-*
are many. First is the increased
cost. There is the problem of photo
graphing- students during regist
ration, because at least 25 per
cent of the students register late
during fall term. The cards would
also have to be validated winter
and spring terms to prevent their
use by students who have with
drawn from the University.
Registrar Clifford L. Constance
said that registration procedure
would be complicated and that it
was up to the departments bene
fited to pay the additional costs.
Lemons tainted
Howard Lemons, athletic busi
ness manager, said that this typo
of a “flasher card” would not in
crease the gate receipts of athletic
“Oregon State College uses this
system,” he said, “but it hasn’t
been very successful. The import
ant thing is to have good pictures
that will satisfy the Department
of Internal Revenue.”
The federal agency is brought
into the situation because of fede
ral admission taxes.
(late Receipts Climb
Lemons said that at least an 18
per cent increase in gate receipt;*
was noticed after the male and
female cards were adopted.
“I don’t thinlt a further increase
would be gained by the adoption
of this new type of card, but I wilt
go along with the idea because it
would be beneficial to the students.
The athletic department now
spends about $75 on activity cards.
This money could be donated to
the increased cost of new carda
if they replaced the present card.”
Six cents per card was the first
estimated of increased costs on
this new card. But this estimate
did not take into consideration all
of the required production costs.
