.Holloway Report Under Fire;
Greeks Cite Financial Troubles
By Al Karr
Th<* contention of the not yet
completed Holloway report on de
ferred living that financial diffi
culties being experienced by many
faternlticH and Hororltlea are large
ly the fault of the individual
groups and not the deferred living
system was disputed Sunday by
leaders of men’s and women's fra
tcrnal living groups.
Herb Ix>mbard, president of the
House Managers association, com
posed of the business managers of
fraternities, and Joane I>ewls,
president of Panhellenic, presi
dents of sororities, attributed
losses sustained by many houses
chiefly to the deferred living sys
Four Points Outlined
The Holloway report contention
was one of four points outlined by
I.es Anderson, alumni secretary, to
an alumni meeting during Home
coming last term. Anderson gave
a preliminary account of what the
report would contain, as it appear
ed at that time, to the meeting.
Charles Holloway was appointed
by Alumni President W. N. Itus
scl last yieir to bead the eight-man
■* committee, charged by the associa
tion to investigate deferred living
for freshmen and to report bac k to
Completion of the report has
been delayed by illness in the Hol
loway family, Anderson said Sat
Lombard said it is difficult for
houses to continue with less men
than before the system went into
effect last year because of mem
bership coming from three classes
than from the previous four.
( noli Don't Change
"Fraternities have a certain cost
whether they have 10 or 100 men,"
he said, "and the decrease in mem
bership has made it much more
difficult to meet thut cost."
Lombard said the average loss
by fraternities and sororities last
year was from $000 to $800. Some
made money, he added, but the fi
nancial purpose of the houses is
not to make money, but to break
even. "However, very few are even
doing that," he complained.
Lombard asserted, "Preferred
living hurt fraternities financially
last year, and it's still hurting."
Miss Lewis said deferred liv
ing has also harmed sororities fi
nancially, although she expressed
hope that the losses sustained were
merely the result of the change
over last year, when no new
pledges replaced tbs graduating
class. Miss Lewis said she hoped
houses could get back to pro-de
ferred living membership in a few
Other feints Cited
The other three points In Ander
son's preliminary account of the
prospective content of the report
on deferred living talso called the
"DuShane plan” after Donald M.
DuShane, director of student af
fairs, who was considered chiefly
responsible for initiating the plan
at Oregon) were:
1. Deferred living Is here to
2. An advantage of the system
is the wide acquaintance the dor
mitory-living freshmen have gain
3. A disadvantage is the lack of
proper information regarding reg
ulations among freshman students.
Most of these regulations are stu
dent-imposed, not administrative,
the report stated.
The report, when completed, will
go to University President H. K.
Newburn and to th<- Alumni asso
ciation, Anderson said in his dis
cussion of the report last term. It
will be published in Old Oregon,

would have trouble in November
against the labor vote.
Goodwin did not think that Stas

we were looking for in 1948.''
Stassen Might Be “Compromise”
He added that Stassen might run
as a "compromise" between those
who dislike Taft and those who
don't care for a general as presi
He also thought that Warren
would have a poor chance for the
nomination "Nobody west of
Buck's county, Pa., seems to have
too much chance in the Hast.”
C. P. Schleicher, professor of po
litical science, said that if Eisen
hower ran, Truman would be less
inclined to run against him than
See Eye to Eye
"Truman and Eisenhower seem
to see eye to eye on foreign pol
icy," he remarked.
If Eisenhower ran and accepted
Taft’s views on domestic issues,
Schleicher said, Truman might
wish to run against him. “If Tru
man runs against Eisenhower,
Eisenhower would win.”
Stating that "Ike” would have a
.r>0-r>0 chance for the Republican
nomination, Schleicher added,
"Those who control the Republican
party prefer Mr. Taft to Mr. Eis
enhower," since Taft is considered
to be “safe.”
Taft Election “Disastrous”
> An election of Taft, according to
Schleicher, would be “disastrous
for our whole foreign policy."
Schleicher remarked that elec
tion of “Ike" probably would have
a desirable effect upon America’s
foreign policy, adding that many
Europeans consider him to be the
"greatest living man."

Gordon Wright, acting head of
the history department said that
he didn't think that Truman would
run against an Eisenhower ticket
because ill he wouldn't want to
"be beaten so badly" and (2) Tru
man thinks that 'Ike's' views are
However, he admitted, the Dem
ocratic party, desiring the "spoils"
of office, might put the pressure
upon Truman and force him to run.
Wright stated that if Eisen
hower ran, he would probably win
the Republican nomination, but he
wouldn't win as decisively as he
would if he had entered the cam
paign at an earlier date.
Referring to the North Atlantic
alliance, Wright asserted that “no
body can do the job as well as he
Waldo Schumacher, professor of
political science, stated that he
doubted that Truman would run
again in the eventuality of a Re
publican nomination of "Ike."
“Has Had Enough”
“I think that Truman has had
enough of it," he commented.
Eisenhower’s chances to win the
presidency, Schumacher explained,
depend upon his opposition and
whether or not the American peo
ple are willing to elect a general
to the office of president.
