To Revive Spirit
Anderson, speaking to the coun
cil on the orientation proposal,
said that the plan presented a way
in which to revive class spirit with
in the University and to stimulate
alumni interest.
Donald DuShane, director of stu
dent affairs, expressed hope that
the orientation plan could be placed
in operation in the fall "substan
tially as proposed." "I welcome a
working partnership with a Joint
program and increasing control
by students," he said.
The duties of the chairman, as
outlined by Mountain, would be to
work rloscly with the Office of
Student Affairs and to select a
committee from members of class
honorarios to run the orientation
program. The chairman would be
responsible to the Office of Student
Affairs but would also be guided
in his actions by student govern

Election of Officersin Low School
Quite Unique but Interesting
Hollis (Special) - Law books are
closed. Law School Weekend and
royal court hullabaloo, usually at
a high pitch about this time of
year, is at low ebb.
The attention of the 90 inhabit
ants of Fenton Hall is focused on
the selection of a new president
for the realm. And election day is
Outgoing President Jim Hafey,
in his last official act before step
ping down, has proclaimed that
Fenton, too, will operate on "day
li^n time.” There was some con
troversy over whether the govern
or of Oregon's proclamation had
any effect within Fenton, but
Hafey decided that the interest of
Fenton's farmers, fishermen, and
golfers all were benefitted by the
"fast time.’’
So. the election will be held from
8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daylight time, with
an hour off for lunch from 12 to 1.
Three candidates—all claiming
"grass roots” origin, and to be re
presenting “all of the peons of
Fenton" and not any special class,
interest group, or Greek affilia
tion, are vying for the lucrative
position. However, there is a rum
or that the feminine members have
decided to consolidate, and may
throw a ringer into the pre-elec
tion dopesters by running a write
in candidate of their own.
Proper authorized candidates are
Dnlo Pederson, Ed O'Reilly, and
Ken Poole.
Pederson is promising the con
stituents more and larger "par
ades," with proper weather condi
O'Reilly is running on a plank
to restore control of Fenton to the
honest people, and away from the
gamblers who have taken control,
and operate the "pepper games,”
the most important single activity
within the realm.
Poole, the only present member
ever to come out with a “four
point," is appealing to the intelli
gentsia in an attempt to wiggle
control away from the ignorant
Hafey reports that plans are
all set for the election. His only
problem now—and it is one that
arises each year at this time in
Fcnton-is to devise some way of
making the total number of votes
equal the number of eligible vot
ers. The philosophy of "vote early,
and vote often" is the perennial
by word in Fenton elections.
Should the election be contested
Hafey has announced that the pre
sidency will be determined by the
only other equitable means known
a "pepper game" with unmarked
cards (if any can be found that
have not been tampered with). To
the winner will go the spoils of this
! great political office.

\\ hen basketball coach John Warren was informed of the suspension by the Emerald, he said
