Makes Campus Debut
!n Tuesday Assembly
By Carol Charles
"Kappy" is the new dynamic
personality on campus. His debut
was made in an assembly Tuesday
afternoon when Dr. and Mrs. Paid

Among (heir souvenirs was Kap
a small silver gibbon. This ape
jias been used in the anthropology
and religion departments to illus
trate man’s relationship to the ani
*nml kingdom.
Mrs. Means explained that Kap
-py loves to be combed, bid his
attitude is not the same toward his
.weekly bath. He sleeps in a wicker
basket and, like every good young
ster, he lakes morning and after
noon naps. Slowly he is learning to
handle a spoon in eating such
things as jello anil rice, hut liis diet
consists mostly of fruits. 1
Politeness seems to be a by-word
of this charming little gibbon, al
though he shows at times a dislike
for men by a chatter which begins
on a low note and becomes very
shrill. Mis expression of anger is a
pro! nulling lower lip and a sound
which resembles barking.
Anyone approaching the Means'
residence is announced hy a series

“We’ve been duped," the edi

Opposition by state students
forced the company to postpone
the project. OSC was granted a
hearing of its case. To this the
Oregon delegation will go.

Traffic Survey
Ois Campus Eads
The state highway-city of Eu
gene traffic survey came to a close
j on campus Tuesday night, al
though' surveys throtighout the
city will continue for six to eight
weeks, according to the state high
way location office.
The survey crew on 13th st. ob
tained information on drivers' orig
ins and destinations from 6 a.m. to
10 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, hav
ing previously conducted their sur
vey only during the day.
This particular crew had finish
ed its originally-assigned work a
week ago. but was conducting the
campus survey at the request of
the University, according to a
member of the crew.
Purpose of the survey, the state
highway location office said, is to
gather information on movement
of traffic as an aid in solving the
traffic problem, and possibly, re
garding the campus problem, to
obtain information on the value of
increasing off-street parking or.
changing the traffic light system.
The survey, which started more
than a month ago, will probably
continue for another six to eight
weeks, the city engineer's office
stated. It started in outlying dis
tricts and is moving into town.
One of the principal traffic-con
gested areas, the office said, is the
University district.
