We don’t want you high school seniors.

Unless you’re convinced that you really want the University
If agriculture is your major interest, if you intend to be a
mining engineer, if forestry is your field, this is no place for
you. But it is your school if you want business or music or law
or architecture or journalism or liberal arts or several other
major fields of study.
Oregon is weak in some phases of education. In others, it is
very strong. It’s up to you future college students to look over
your favored fields, compare them with other schools within
your finances, and then choose the university best suited for
It’s essential to look past this one weekend deciding for or
against Oregon. Duck Preview is nothing more than a wink at
our institution and its extracurricular life. You do have an op
portunity to visit schools and departments, but they'll be in
Sundav-best, and part of the picture may be missing.
You need a critical eye when you come to a campus like this
for one activity-packed weekend. If you’re here just for a good
time, fine, the good time is here to be had. But we don t need
you as an Oregon student if you intend to come here to Eugene
with a “country club’’ complex. In this year of 1951 and talk
of deferments for college students, no campus has a right to be
a “country club.”
But you high school seniors know all this. You know that
Oregon will be a wise choice if it excels in the fields which in
terest you. And you know that this is no place for ducks out of
water. The University really does want you ... if you want it.
Long Live the Law School
From the news columns of Monday’s Emerald, this:
“President Truman and family won’t be here for the Junior
Weekend festivities . . . but they were invited!
“In a letter received from Matthew J. Connelly, personal
secretary to the President, Connelly expressed the President’s
appreciation for the . . kind invitation.’
“Anyway, it was a noble try by the members of the junior
class, who sent the letter to the President.”
Through the Shack window facing Fenton Hall, this:
“According to sources close to the law school, it was rumor
ed today that President Truman had accepted the gracious in
vitation extended to him by the University of Oregon School
of Law, to attend Law School Weekend to be held in Eugene,
on May 5, 1951.
“The President purportedly said that it was necessary for
him ‘to cancel a number of priorcommitments, including a con
ference with Prime Minister Clement Atlee, in order to attend
“Authoritative sources revealed that the President had re
ceived a similar invitation from another institution on the Pa
cific slope to attend a Freshman Weekend, or some such thing,
but that the President had declined the invitation because he
had previously planned to spend that weekend fishing in the
the White House fish pond with the Senate Crime Committee.
“This reporter’s source of information could not recall which
institution had forwarded the invitation to the President, but
remembered that it was in some way remotely connected with

ASUO Student Body elections
are less than three weeks away
—and the list of presidential pos
sibilities Is gradually filling out.
At least one AGS hopeful, Dave
Rodway (junior class represen
tative and Dad's Dhy chairman)
has already started barnstorm
ing around to campus houses.
Understand that one of the things
he's said is that the AGS is a
good party no matter wbat the
Emerald thinks of it.
Party President Bill Carey
seems to lie making some noises
as nomination time approaches.
Graduate students may run for
office under the new constitution
—and we’re wondering whether
Carey's a junior or a senior,
though it may not matter. May
be even Steve Church, senior
class president, will decide to run.
Also Leslie Tooze may be back
next year to occupy an AJWO
Tom Barry, chairman of Home
coming last fall, seems to be out
of the race now. But any number
of dark horse candidates may
throw their hats into the ring at
the last moment.
ttame Rumor has It that the
I'.HA may aim for control of the
Henute rather than try lo win
the student body presidency. The
new constitution vests much more
power In the legislative branch
than Is now the case; the presi
dent next year will be stripped
of somo of the authority present
ly granted to him.
Possible USA nominees for the
Senate a.*e Merv Hampton (jun
ior class president (, Virginia
Wright (Junior representative),
Willy Dodds ) Homecoming chair
man in 15M9 and junior class
president during the fall), Bill
Clothier (former president of
IDC), Anita Holmes (Emerald
editor), Bob Schooling (Otegana
business manager), Jackie I’rit
zen (former Carson hall presi
dent), and Cece Daniels, (USA
steering committee member).

I Films, Get Once Over
By Don Smith
Since few people will be going
to movies this weekend if the
weather holds up, I’ll brush them
of quickly . “Born Yesterday"
moves to the Mayflower, leaving
the Heilig with "Father's Little
Dividend,” the sequel to “Father
of the Bride.” Haven't seen this
one, but judging by the caliber of
other sequel pictures, this is a
film I’ll make no special point to
"Lullaby of Broadway,” a tech
nicolor (I hope) musical with Dor
is Day and Gene Nelson and a
bundle of favorite tunes sings in
to the McDonald Sunday. It’s the
first starring role for talented
dancer Nelson—but unfortunate
ly, according to most reviewers,
the script and story is as excit
ing as a limp washrag.
The student union will be
showing “One Touch of Venus,”
which has Ava Gardner Is one
of her earliest roles. It’s a light
musical fantasy adapted from
the successful Broadway musical
that starred Mary Martin in the
early 40’s. Hit song from the film
is “Speak Low (When You
Speak Love).” If it’s raining Sun
day afternoon you might drop
in at the ballroom and see a good
show at a cheap price—SO cents.
Well, that takes care of the
movies of note in town; now I
shall struggle out on a different
limb and congratulate next year’s
If the Emerald has been on the
job (and isn’t it always?), you
may read elsewhere in this paper
that Bob Funk has been selected
yearbook editor for next year.
This year and last you've been
able to get a taste of Bobby’s
whimsy in his excellent columns
on this edit page. If you’re a
freshman, you probably only
heard about what you missed last
year; bul you got a taste of the
Funk style in the Ore-n-ter,
which he edited.
Personally, I expect the cover
of next year's Oregana to have
on it a robin (symbolizing the
corning of Spring) standing in a
blue or green lake (symbolizing
.whatever political party Bob is
at the time supporting) and
munching a peanut butter sand
wich (symbolizing God and Kunk
only know what).
It should all be very interest
ing—I only wish I were going to
