It may be KWAX instead o:
This is the word of Jack Vaughn
station manager of the Univer
sity’s new FM station, who tol(
the Emerald Monday that the cal
letters KDUK have been pronounc
ed “unavailable” by the Federa
Communications Commission.
The station had requested th<
familiar letters KDUK, by whicl
the station has been known on th<
campus since last year. But per
mission to use the letters are uj
to the FCC.
“KWAX was our second choice,’
said Vaughn, “but until broadcast;
start winter term we cannot b<
certain of FCC approval on these.’
While rejecting the request foi
KDUK, the FCC has as yet no
given approval to any other cal

Suspended for 15-Day Period
Taylor’s coffee shop and the College Side Inn drew 15-day sus
pensions of beer selling privileges after the Oregon Liquor Con
trol commission sustained reports from commission examiners
that minors were being sold beer in the two places.
The suspensions were ordered during a Friday meeting of the
liquor commission in Portland and will take effect within 10
The question of beer sales
near the campus of any college
or university in the state was
set aside by the commission for
later action. The policy-making
decision will probably be hand
ed down by Jan. 1.
In tabling the much-argued is
sue, the commission expressed the
feeling that it required further in
vestigation and study. Members
said it was necessary to confirm
the attitudes of the University
administration and authorities of
the city of Eugene before proceed
ing to establish a policy.
Evidence Discussed
The commission did, however,
discuss evidence collected at an
open hearing held in the Eugene
city hall Nov. 16. Commission Ex
aminer Richard Reed, who Was pre
sent at the Eugene hearing, told
, members that testimony given at
the hearing seemed to indicate that
■ the proximity to the University
campus of places selling beer had
little effect on the problem.
Reed compared the case of the
I Chat & Chew in which minor stu
I dents from the OSC campus, locat
ed 2V2 miles away, had purchased
I beer. He pointed out that distance
in that instance had no bearing on
the sale of beer to students.
