After the elections the group dis
cussed the World Student Servjce
Fund drive. Several members of
the group praised chairman Jackie
Wilkes for her outstanding direc
tion of the drive. The large num
ber of off-campus contributions
were held by some to show a great
er interest in WSSF by individuals
rather than by living organizations.
A few in the group noted scattered
criticism around the campus from
those who felt the Ugly Man
theme detracted from the general
purpose of the drive.
The group voted to sponsor a
picnic on May 6. It was decided
that, women would bring box
Mfoiehes, which v/ould be bought
by the men at a public auction.
The money raised would be used
to pay a Council deficit incurred
from Religious Emphasis Week.

Miss Oberteuffcr told the coun
cil that the Duck Preview weekend
program was run off smoothly ami
expressed the opinion that the sche
dule provided for the high school
seniors was appreciated and en
joyed by them.
"The only trouble was that w«
didn't have enough people here, ’
Miss Obertetiffer stated. She blam
ed the failure of a better showing
upon an inadequate system of pro
motion. Written invitations issued
by sororities at Oregon State Col
lege were Cited by Miss Obcrteuff* r
as an inducement to attend the
high school senior week* nd h< Id
there. The High School Relations
Board was in charge of contact
ing the high school students, she
told the council.
Something under 500 high -chcs l
•entors attended the preview held
on the campus Friday through
Difficulty in housing the vit.*
ing seniors was experienced, the
council was informed, due to the
fact that reply cards sent to stu
dents were late in being delivered.
Miss Ob« rteuffer suggested that
one of two plans be adopted in fie
future in order to insure maximum
attendance at the University high
school senior weekend:
1. Work with OSC to formulate
a set of rules in respect to pro
motion of the weekend.
2. Encourage fraternities and
sororities to personally invite high
school seniors to visit the Orogc.u
campus during the weekend.
ASUO President Barry Mountain
suggested that the chaiilYian for
