    Ad Scholarship Contest Modified
1 The Joseph R. Gerber Co. ad
vertising research scholarship,
heretofore open only to students
with exceptionally high grades, has
been modified to allow all students
of advertising and marketing at
the University to compete, accord
ing to word received from Gerber
last week.
- To compete for the scholarship
students must complete an adver
tising and merchandising thesis,
preferably with an Oregon pro
duct or potential product as its
subject. All research and creative
work is done by the student.
The scholarship is awarded to a
junior at commencement time each
year and is considered sufficient
to pay tuition and fees during the
.senior year.
Winner of last spring’s award
was Don Thompson, senior in
journalism and business manager
of the Emerald, whose thesis was
entitled “Marketing Frozen Fish.”

Inquiring Reporter
No Need Here
Say Students
By Billie Harnden
The topic of racial discrimina
tion is especially interesting when
brought up in relation to condi
tions which are familiar to a group
such as UO students.
Recently there has been discus
sion on the reactivation of the lo
cal chapter of the National Asso
ciation for the Advancement of
Colored People on the campus. In
an attempt to find out just how
the average Oregon student feels
about the revival of the chapter,
your inquiring reporter asked
several people for their opinions.
Jim Sandefer, freshman in libe
ral arts—“From what I’ve seen of
the campus, there seems to be very
little racial discrimination of any
kind. Socially, however, I think it
is too bad that there is not a liv
ing organization or social group
here which would be open to all
groups. Except for the fulfilling of
such a need, I don’t believe that
such an organization would be
Julia Lundy, freshman in art—
“Yes, I do think that we need
such an organization. It is a good
thing to have anywhere.”
Sylvia Jones, freshman in AA—
“No, I don’t think that we need
such a group on this campus."
John Palmer, senior in sociology
—“I don’t believe that the situa
tion on this campus is severe
enough to warrant the formation
of the NAACP here. However, my
understanding of the organization
would lead me to believe that it is
a positive and conservative ele
ment no matter where formed, and
therefore I would be in favor of
seeing it come to this University.”
Judy McLoughlin-, freshman in
English—“No, I don’t think we
need NAACP because such an or
ganization as the one in question
only emphasizes instead of mini
mizes the racial prejudice on a
campus. Also what prejudice there
is here is hardly prevalent enough
to warrant such action.”
Finn Sagild, special student from
Denmark—“It is encouraging to
find a place like the Oregon cam
pus where there is little racial
prejudice. There is a little bit here,
but hardly enough to warrant such
a group.”
Cece Daniels, junior in BA— “I
have never seen any discrimination
on campus, but I have seen it in
action downtown. There doesn't
seem to be any need for a chapter
here at the U.”
Kathy Burgess, fre..liman in art
—“I don’t think there is enough
discrimination on the campus to
provide basis for such an organi
Jo Tollman, freshman in speech
.--"No, I don’t think we need
NAACP for the simple reason that
I don’t think there is very much
discrimination on this campus.
Especially when you compare it
with the situation at some other
Chapman Hall Sets!
