and one other sub-committee were
incorporated into the SU Direct

mittee were elevated to the Direct
orate level. They are concert,
dance, movie, and workshop.
Committees Separated
The art gallery sub-committee
was separated from the cultural

Students Say
Drink Problem
Not too Grave
By Larry Hobart
What is your opinion concern
ing drinking on the Oregon cam
pus ?
The problem of drinking on the
part of students, which recently
received public attention through
the citing of minors in campus
taverns and the oral suspension
of five dormitory men for drink
ing in a dorm room, was reviewed
by Oregon students today. The
majority of opinions indicated that
they did not view the problem as
Bud Allen—sophomore in libe
ral arts—“I don’t believe that
problem is serious. The students
recently suspended by the admin
istration were old enough to drink
and adult enough to make their
own decisions. If some punishment
must be inflicted, probation would
be the best thing. It’s a matter
of individual responsibility.”
Tom Burns Jr.—senior in social
studies—“I think the rules regard
ing liquor in the dorms are too
stringent. However, if the rules are
on the books, they should be en
forced. Persons 21 should be al
lowed to drink when they please.”
Dick Kading—junior in business
administration—-“Drinking does
pose a problem. I believe in mod
eration but see no reason why
a person over 21 years of age
shouldn’t be allowed to drink as
long as he doesn’t involve minors.
Concerning the episode at Barrist
er Inn, I think the students will
appeal the case successfully.
Drinking doesn’t seem to be out of
hand to me.”
onnui iuiiiuuu—sopoiiomure ui
liberal arts—“It will be difficult
to enforce the rules concerning
drinking and not infringe on the
student’s liberties. Matters con
cerning drinking in women’s liv
ing organizations could be handl
ed much more efficiently within
the organization. The present
system channels all diciplinary
action through the office of wom
en’s affairs.”
Bill Earl—freshman in business
administration—"Oregon has been
advertised as a school which al
lows a great deal of personal
liberty. If further restrictions were
added to those all ready in force,
including those in respect to drink
ing, a great many students would
lose their desire to enroll here.
However, I believe that the stu
dents caught with beer in the
dorm should be punished, al
though suspension is a bit severe.”
Maureen Cotta—sophomore in
liberal arts—“I definitely don’t
think there should be drinking in
the dorms. Drinking should be re
stricted to the Side and Taylor’s
and limited to persons over 21.”
A1 Gordon—junior in art—“I
think it is unfortunate that the
students caught drinking in Bar
rister Inn were suspended. It is
especially tough on the foreign
student. One drink of beer and all
his effort is wasted. The rules
should be more elastic.”
Berkeley Brown—Sophomore in
pre-med—“I don’t think the drink
ing problem is out of hand. It is
much worse other places. If the
students caught drinking in Bar
rister Inn were allowed to go
without some punishment, regard
for the rule would be destroyed.
Suspension is a pretty serious
thing. Something a little milder
might prove just as effective.”
Lois Ann Smith—senior in his
tory—“There is much more drink
ing this year than last. The tense
world situation is partly respon
sible. If the foreign student in
volved in drinking in the dorms is
E. G. Moll Gives
Lecture on Poet
At 8 p.m. Tonight
"Wordsworth, the Struggle for
Poetry,” will be the topic of a lec
ture to be presented by E. G. Moll,
professor of English, at 8 p.m. to
night in 207 Chapman.
The lecture commemorates the
death of William Wordsworth 100
years ago. It will present the
struggle in Wordsworth’s mind be
tween the poetic and the unpoetic.
The Engiish department states
that this promises to be an ex
cellent lecture—one of the best of
the University Lecture Series this
year. Since the war, Wordsworth
has had an increasing number of
readers because he seems to have
the power of revitalizing man’s!
“drooping” spirit.
Studied Poets
“Prof. Moll has made a study
of the Romantic poets for many
years, and, being a poet himself,
has a sympathetic insight into
Wordsworth’s view of Life,” said
R. H. Ernst, professor of English.
Books by Prof. Moll are “Sedge
Fire,” “Native Moments,” “Cam
pus Sonnets,” “Blue Interval,”
“Appreciation of Poetry,” “Cut
from Mulga,” “Brief Waters,” "Be
ware the Cuckoo,” “The Water
hole,” and another which is in the
process of publication.
The lecture is open to the public.
'M. Vincent' Shows
At Mayflower
“M. Vincent,” Foreign Movie
Club French selection coming to
the Mayflower tonight, Friday, and
Saturday, has won more top
awards than any other foreign
film in the history of movies.
Critics, educational leaders, and
religious denominations have all
praised the film, based on the life
of Vincent de Paul and starring
the brilliant French actor Pierre
A religious picture, “M. Vin
cent” has real appeal because the
film itself has progressed by
faith. When started no backer
could be found. The people of
France came to the film’s aid and
sent in contributions to start its
production. All these contributions
have been paid back.
suspended, he won’t carry a very
good impression of the United
States back to his country. The
administration has suddenly
thrown a bunch of rules at stu
dents, and they are naturally go
ing to complain.”
