Faculty Should Pay or Car Should Go
The University cannot legally fine a faculty member for a
traffic violation on the campus. It's something that just isn t
done and therefore the assumption that faculty members are
not being fined for violations is correct. But punishment of
student violators goes on.
Presumably the only manner in which the University could
levy fines for faculty traffic violators is for the faculty members
themselves to pass on it in the faculty senate—an unlikely
Bv the same token, giving the student traffic court jurisdic
tion over faculty cases stands on shaky legal grounds.
But the problem continues—campus traffic problems are
not solved by punishing one set of violators and letting an
other group go free. A round-about way of fining faculty mem
bers is to send the tickets to the District Court on a charge of
trespassing. A quicker and easier way is to simply have the
cars of the violators towed off the campus. It costs $2.a0 to
get your car back after it has been towed olf. hurthermore,
A brief check through some of the citations for faculty viola
tions indicates a substantial majority of them were simply the
result of parking in faculty lots and not taking the trouble to
pick up a faculty parking sticker (free of charge) at the physi
cal plant. Of the 31 checked, 18 violations had been caused by
neglecting or refusing to obtain the stickers.
The legal technicality which makes it impossible for the L ni
versity to fine a faculty violator is not clear. Charles Howard,
professor of law, the man who ought to know, admits he knows
“quite a lot” about it—but “I don’t care to enter into a discus
sion of the matter,-’ he said.
However, as it stands now, the best practical solution is prob
ably towing the faculty cars oft the campus. Tow half a dozen
cars oft amid lots of publicity and the problem would probably
Sports on a Different Plane
An indoor picnic—that’s what the ASUO Executive Council
and Chairman Daugherty are promising Friday night.
It will be the all-campus and all-Eugene Sports Night, offer
ed for the first time this year. If the evening rolls off as plan
ned, it will be an example of some of the finest cooperation
Oregon has seen this year.
The physical education department, Coach Bowerman, ath
letes, the University band, and students by the dozen are giv
ing time and much work to make the night a success.
Because the organizers of the night are solidly behind it, and
its purpose. Sports Night was originally planned to raise funds
for the ASUO. It was also planned to give students and towns
people an opportunity to see some of the University’s athletes
and entertainers who are not the professional performers we
hear so much of today.
The money will be used to swell coffers of the Associated
Students, and next year this money will be turned back to the
students in the form of activities or awards.
Oregon’s first Sports Night should be entertaining, colorful,
and worthwhile—an indoor picnic.

have no trouble in keeping her

A comparison of the play (pro

shows that the film, strangely
enough, is faithful to the original.

The Campus Answers
A pertinent passage from a

“All exemptions and deferments

Therefore, if we are to assume
that the government is created

In your editorial of Tuesday,
you seemed to have totally over
looked this principle.
It should be obvious that we
cannot hope to match a future
enemy man-to-man on the battle
field. We must rely, to a consid
erable extent, to our superiority
in education and know-how to
win a victory.
Therefore, it is essential to the
welfare of THE NATION that
they who are furthering their
knowledge at an institution of
higher education should be al
lowed to continue their studies.
Thusly, as we need to encour
age the continuation of scholas
tic endeavors, why should we not
keep the “A” student in college,
who has displayed a greater ap
titude for higher education or at
least has applied himself better
than the other students, instead
of the “C” student, if all cannot
remain in college ?
The same general principle ap
plies to the aptitude or intelli
gence test. Why shouldn’t we
keep the students with the great
est potential capacities in school,
instead of the more dull?
It would seem to me that the
government, after its investiga
tion of several months, including
the testimony and advice of edu
cational experts, is capable of
reaching a satisfactory conclu
sion. Shall we give them that
much credit, at least?
