Executive Council Reviews
Dorm Committee Report,
Expresses Unofficial Okay
The report of the A8UO dormi
tory committee compiled from ob
servation of the living-in plan In
force at Stanford was reviewed
by the Kxecutiyc Councilf Monday
evening.
The committee's proposed living
plan waa in general informally ap
proved by the group, which ex
pressed the opinion that the pro
gram could be made to work on
the Oregon campus with the co- •
operation of all University organi
zations.
"The plan can be successful if
students adopt the attitude of put
ting the Interests of the Univer
sity and the freshman ahead of
their individual differences,” A8UO
President Barry Mountain stated.
In a comprehensive period of dis
cussion and questions the council,
meeting with members of the dor
raitory committee, commented up
clr the report and listened to re
marks by students who made the
Stanford trip.
A financial report presented to
the council by Mountain revealed
a total of $669 96 in the ASUO
treasury. Mountain said that this
sum indicated a better financial
condition than that displayed by
records of last year's student gov
ernment, which went $88 into the
red. Sports Night netted $148,
Mountain reported.
Mountain announced that a class
in student government will be
started at 4 p.rti. in Chapman Hall
for the benefit of newly elected
student leaders. The opening class
will be conducted by Donald Du
Shane, director of student affairs,
Mountain said, and will be con
cerned with parliamentary proce
dure. Succeeding classes will meet
at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays and will
include such topics as the new
ASUO constitution and rules and
regulations of parliamentary pro
cedure.
Prospects of a summer picnic
to be held at Jantzen Beach in
Portland were mulled by the coun
cil, but no decision was reached.
Discussion revolved around the is
sue of whether the outing should
be designed to attract high school
seniors who have not yet made
up their minds ns to what college
they wish to attend, or to provide
a social event for students already
enrolled in the University and Ore
gon alumni.
Mountain was instructed by the
group to check with Oregon Moth
ers and Dads cjubs and alumni to
discover the feelings of these or
ganizations concerning the picnic.

Joint Committee Reduces
Higher Education Budget;
Will Cause Faculty Loss
SALKM </Pi Tho joint lcgis-i
lativp ways and means committee
Monday reduced the Board of,
Higher Bducation budget, with the
result that 60 to 70 faculty mem
bers will have to be fired.
The committee allowed the board
$27,707,026, compared with the
$31,643,000 requested by the board.
The budget is for the two years
beginning next July 1.
Representative Bridie Wilhelm
Jr., Multnomah, chairman of the
subcommittee which prepared the
budget, said those cuts in teaching
personnel would have to be made,
mostly at the University of Ore
gon and Oregon State College. In
addition, he said, about 65 civil
service employes will have to be
dismissed. (University President
H. K. Newburn, out of town Mon
day night, could not be reached
for comment.)
Wilhelm said the budget cut is
justified by lower prospective en
rollment.
Students May Suffer
Wilhelm quoted the board as
saying, however, that the reduced
budget will force the board to in-1
crease student fees 25 per cent.
"This bhdget cut won't do any
harm," Wilhelm said. "Otherwise,
we would have got a lot more com
plaints and pressure than we got.
"The budget is about as low as
we could go and keep on carrying
on about the same as we are now."
He said the higher education,
system had 25 students per instruc
tor four years ago, but that the
number now is down to 17 students
per instructor.
The committee had expected to
pass on the $8,620 building—pro
gram today for higher education
and state institutions. But consid
eration of the higher education
budget forced the committee to
postpone the building program un
til its next meeting.
However, the committee voted to
introduce a new cigarette tax bill
of 3 cents a package. This doesn't
mean, however, that the committee
is for the bill. It will come back
to the committee for consideration.
A cigarette tax might be used to
finance the buildings.
Will UO Beat Yale?
Blood Drive to Begin
At SU for Donors
Tile Red Cross has issued an
urgent call for blood donors to
appear at the Student Union today.
In a message received Monday
from the Portland Red Cross blood
bank, it was learned that the de
mand for whole blood has gone up
tremendously.
In a phono call received late
Monday night by (terry Pearson,
blood drive co-head, it was learn
ed that the University can make
national headlines if it can col
lect 8fifi pints in its drive.
Jerry Jensen of the Portland
Red Cross has guaranteed that
Oregon will be on the front page
of every major newspaper in the
United States if they can top
Vale University’s record of 866
pints collected in four days.
If Oregon beats this record,
Jensen said, a letter of defeat will
bo received from Vale giving the
blood championship of the United
Slates to the University of Ore
gon.
Mrs. Cora Pirtle, manager of the
Lane County Red Cross, received
the message ami went on to ex
plain the reasons for the increas
ed demand. Mrs. Pirtle stated, “The
new spring offensive that has be
gun in Korea has increased easu
altios greatly. The Red Cross needs
more blood immediately to take
care of these increased easualities."
The number of pledge cards re
ceived for the drive is way below
the quota. So far only about 100
students have made appointments.
The campus Red Cross committee
has asked for all students who
can give blood to go to the Student
Union Tuesday between the hours
of 11 a m. and 5 p.m. Appointments
will not be needed.
Donors should avoid eating fatty
or fried foods for a period of four
hours prior to the donation. Cream
and butter should be avoided also.
The nursery committee of the
YWCA will have a baby-sitting ser
vice to take care of the children of
townspeople giving blood at the
Student Union.
"It is hard to point out the ur
gent need for blood that is exist
ing now on our fighting front, but
there is a drastic shortage and that
is one of the main reasons why the
University has had two blood drives
this year," Roger Nudd, blood drive
co-chairman, stated.
"If the quota can be reached or
even neared it will mean that the
students have really done a ser
vice to their counrty,” Nudd
expressed.
Dave Rodway was then selected
to run for senior class president by
a unanimous vote. And Mike Lai
ly won the junior class president
nomination by a 15-vote margin
over his nearest opponent.
Boh Brittain, who had been nom
inated from the floor at the party •
nomination meeting Monday after
noon, was named candidate for
sophomore class president after a
runoff election with Jim Magnu
son. They had tied on the first

•after the first ballot for senior
class representative, the delegates
voted to eliminate the lowest two
of the four contestants leaving
Shirley Hillard and Jeanne Hofl
man. In a runoff election, the vote
split, 16 for Miss Hillard to 15 for
