Delay in UN Vote
Compiled by A1 Karr
From the Wires of the Associated Press
' The Soviet bloc tried unsuccessfully Tuesday to delay for 24
hours a United Nations vote on the United States' demand that
Communist China be indicted as an aggressor in Korea.
Russia, Poland, and Czechoslovakia appealed for an adjourn
ment of the U. N. Political Committee on the ground that they
had received no instructions on amendments to the U. S. proposal
and to an Arab-Asian resolution calling for a seven-power con
ference on Far Eastern problems.
The committee then went ahead with its debate, which was expected
to lead to a vote^some time during the day. At least two-thirds of the 60
nations are expected to vote for the U. S. proposal.
Polish delegate Juliusz Kath-Suchy delayed the vote by a long attack
on the United States, which some diplomats described privately as a
filibuster. After he had been speaking almost an hour, French dele
gate Francis LaCoste asked the chairman to see that he stuck to the
question on the agenda.
At Least 15 Persons Died in a Fire...
... in a rest home in the Southwest Washington city of Hoquiam
Tuesday. Many of the approximately 30 residents, ill and unable to walk,
were trapped in their beds.
A Hoquiam fireman, off duty, drove byfn time to help another fireman
rescue one man from a window. Another man appeared in the next win
dow but disappeared before they could reach him. “We heard him
screfRii,'’ the fireman sajd. “We couldn’t get to him and then we didn’t
hear him any more.”

cold that produced stories usually heard only in “Liar’s Club” contests.
The U. S. Weather Bureau in Milwaukee said Lone Rock, Wis., had a
temperature “estimated” at 53 degrees below zero. The official ther
mometer there goes only to 45 below.
The lowest temperature readings en masse Tuesday morning came

Marcia's Letter, Glasses
At SU Lost and Found
By Donna Hart
Can you see well enough to read
this ? Or have you lost your glass
If you have, you might try look
ing in the Lost and Pound depart
ment at the main desk of the Stu
dent Union. There are eight pair
of eyeglasses in the drawer, plus
another glass Which would mea
sure about two jiggers.
If you’re running short of money
because your purse or check book
is missing, you could probably
find that at the SU, too. Among
such things as rulers, a leather
belt, a bottle of Superchrome ink,
and four tubes of lipstick, there
are about 60 or 70 different keys.
Various jewelry, watches, combs,
and cards are mixed in together,
along with some very interesting
letters. There's even one addressed
to Marcia. Prom John, no doubt.
Two Pipes Found
The SU has also picked up two
nice pipes which undoubtedly be
long to some upperclass fraternity
men, and a curler which might
have been used to curl Jim Loseu
toff’s long, golden tresses. Some
shy person has conveniently for
gotten his debate cards while
worying about his speech over a
Coke or coffee.
Stepping into the back room, I
found a miniature ready-to-wear
department. There is a pair of white
slacks, a man’s jacket, a woman’s
jacket, a sweater, a blouse, five
hats, and a lab apron. There is
also a little "footie” such as'women
wear when they don’t want to wear
stockings above the ankle bone.
Rain Garments Evident
As proof of the kind of weather
we have in Eugene, there is a rain
coat, about 20- scarves, too many
gloves and mittens to count, 3 rain
hats, 4 umbrellas, and a thermos
bottle in which to keep anything
that will keep you warm.
A movie of the 1939 Washing
ton game is taking its place on a
shelf until the Athletic Department
or someone else claims it.
An idea of the extent of campus
enthusiasm and concern about stu
dies can be gained from a visit to
the Lost and Found department.
As of Monday afternoon there were
20-some notebooks and 39 text
books and pamphlets.
Freshmen to Discuss Novelty
Show in Tonight's SU Meeting
A meeting for all freshmen in

at 8 p.m. today in the SU. Room
number will be posted on the lob

The show, which was taken as
a project by the Freshman Council
in order to raise money, follows
closely the now-completed job of

“The constitution, which was al
most unanimously approved by the
freshman class as a whole, was set
up with the hope that it will con
tinue to be the standard one for
future freshman classes, and with
a section providing for amend
ments and ratifications it should
make it flexible enough to fit fu
ture classes’ needs,” Wayne Caro
thers, president of the class of
The constitution includes sec
tions on standing committees, and
voting procedures of the council.
“We hope that the new consti
tution provides for any situations
which might arise during this
school year,” Carothers said.

John Bartdn ended “Duck
Tracks” in Monday’s Emerald with,
"How about a rally?” In order to
find out just how the students felt
about the proposal, today’s Inquir—
ing Reporter Question was “What
do you think of having rallies for
the basketball team?”
Lauralec Miller—junior in sociol
ogy—“As far as I’m concerned, if
they turned out like the football?
rallies, we may as well not have
them. There wasn’t much entertain
ment or spirit at those, and if there
are rallies there should be more
entertainment so more students
would go to support the team.”
Ernie Baldini—junior in political
science—“I'm definitely in favor
of it. It would instill even more
enthusiasm and spirit than has
already been shown. Since we have
| a good chance for the conference
! title, we should take advantage of
Nelda Vogel—senior in physical'
education—“They would be good if
they were interesting enough so
everyone would attend them.”
Pat Bice—junior in Spanish—“I
think it would only be fair since
they have them for football squads..
But really I don’t care.”
Dick Lee—junior in pre-law—
"We’ve got a winning squad this-;
year and you can’t underestimate*
the importance of school spirit be
hind the team. It’s a give and take
proposition—if we support the
team then they will play to sup
Paul Hawkins—freshman in busi
ness—"For some basketball games.
But I don’t think the students^
would turn out for all of them.”
Mary Ann Schroetke—freshman,

is as important as football, and s®«
I think rallies for basketball would
be equally as effective as rallies
for football. ’Course basketball is
my favorite sport, and I’m pre
Dellssa Ehler—freshman in Eng
lish—“I think they are Just as;
important as football games. Of
course you would have to get the- -
students interested because dur

and the weather is bad.”
Ralph Killier—junior in pre-law
—“It would be a mistake not ter

spirit that the Oregon student body
has shown during home games.

of the heap, it seems only right ter
