for an all campus primary will be brought up under
ess at the ASl'O senate meeting tonight.
Under the suggested plan, which has been under discussion
by a United Students association interim committee, each
party would hold an ASL'O conducted primary. The voters
would directly elect all the candidates to appear on the general
y lection ballot with the exception of the president.
• ine presidential candidate from
each party would be chosen by
-conventions. Delegates to the con
vention* would be chosen on the
Jjasis of schools, each school being
j^tfbtled a certain number of dele
gates, according to the enrollment
%jf the school.
Each candidate would have itH
iown delegates on the ballots in the
Ischools, and students would vote
for the delegates backing the can
didate they favor. The convention
would number approximately 45,
according to the plan.
Advantages of the plan, as ex
plained by Virginia Wright, USA
interim committee chairman,
would include a stirring of student
I,interest and the necessity of mak

ning to adopt the “hell to help i

Cook, junior in business, and pre
sented to the Inter-fraternity coun
cil Jan. 18.
The fraternity plans to put the
plan into operation during its next
initiation which concerns a pledge

outside project.
Cork's proposals suggests that j
fraternities have pledges going j
through initiation work on com- !
munity service projects such as,
campus clean-up. aiding the aged j
and disabled and clean-up of the j
Purpose of the plan would be to
promote good feeling among living ;
organizations, to provide a stibsti- I
tute for “hell week" which would j
retain all of its values but none 1
of its perils to health, scholarship
and house unity and to dignify the
initiation, Cook said.
The IF'C will set up a committee
to aid fraternities in changing
'hell week" to “help week," it de
cided at its last meeting. The IFC

By Al Karr
More than three years have
■passed since the announcement
£hat a plan to have freshmen live
Outside fraternities and sororities
Iwas made to Oregon students—a
{period during which vociferous op
position to deferred living came
I from many sources.
. “ Now, says Donald M. DuShane,
^director of student affairs, the
’plan has general acceptance.
' The policy, unanimously estab
lished by University officials, was
announced at an Inter-fraternity
■council meeting Nov. 4, 1948, and
later to presidents of all Greek or
ganizations the next day.
Later termed the "DuShane
plan" (after DuShane, who took
over administrative charge of
what is now the office of student
affairs in May, 1948), the defer
red living was to go into effect fall
term, 1949, but was postponed one
year to allow Greek organizations
to build up membership.
The new system underwent a
major alteration this year with
separate freshman dormitory
Original Set-up
Deferred living as originally set
up was essentially this:
1. All first-year students to live
in dormitories John Straub, Vets'
dorms, and Carson hall or town
rooms, not in fraternity and soror
ity houses.
2. 1FC and Panhellenic sorority j
organization ,to decide quotas for |
following year's rushees and rules 1
for junior transfers.
3. University authorities to re
examine house capacities, enforce
to the limit of house capacity the
on-campus living rules for all
women and freshmen and sopho
more men and protect established
chapters from competition of new ]
nationals until period of adjust
ment is over.
A plan of deferred living had
been considered as early as 1937,
when the Oregon Dads studied the
situation, recommending deferred
rushing. No action was then taken,
chiefly because the financial con
dition of many houses would not
allow it.
When the administration's deci
sion was announced in 1948, War
ren Richey, IFC president at that
time, said it was too early to form
an opinion pro or con. DuShane
said then, "The University rc-af
firms its support of the fratemity
soiority system and its prior com
mitment to chapters already estab
lished at the University of Ore
DuShane Listed Advantages
Avantages stressed by DuShane
at that time included:
1. A common experience in
group living for freshmen.
2. Improvement of Greek-Inde
pendent relations.
3. Fewer adjustment problems
for freshmen because of elimina
tion of many fraternity require
4. Elimination of pledging a
house merely to have a place to
stay - arising out of fall term rush
week housing practices.
5. Putting dormitories and fra
ternities on a businesslike basis.
6. More serious-minded upper
classmen living in houses.
7. Higher quotas for Greek
houses—thus greater percentage
of Greeks among students.
8. Better counseling in the dor
mitories. ,
And the Disadvantages
Disadvantages he listed were:
1. Earlier deadline for dormitory !
applications needed.
2. Freshmen available for pledge
duties only at certain times.
The Interdorm council said at
that time it was not satisfied with
the plan, feeling it would "weaken
the dormitory system". The coun
cil asked for deferred rushing to
go with the plan; DuShane said
the administration would consider
the proposal. IDC said the plan
was "not just or practical” and
asked that the fraternities be
“cleaned up" first. DuShane told
them, “We have that in mind " <
Opposition came also from the
Greeks, who felt the dorms would
be kept filled at the expense of the
fraternities. They feared financial
injury during the transition per
Columnist Declared Opposition
On Nov. 13 an Emerald colum- j
nist, Mike Callahan, said he |
thought DuShane was the "fall I
guy" of the administration regard
ing the plan. Callahan said there
was IFC, IDC, and Panhellenic dis
satisfaction with the proposal be
cause they had not been consulted
before the announcement. He op
posed the plan because he felt
double counseling and double fi
ancial responsibilities on fresh
man pledges would be too much
of a burden.
Latei* A. H. Kunz, head of the
chemistry department, agreed in a
letter to the Emerald that the
dorms and Greeks should have
been consulted and suggested that
a halfway deferred living setup be
installed, or the plan be deferred
for a year.
Continued Opposition
JFC, I DC and Panhellenic con
tinued to oppose the plan. Then,
on Jan. 23, 1949, deferred livings
was postponed until fall term of
1950. DuShane explained that the
postponement was to allow a
longer adjustment period for the
fraternities and sororities. IFCT
called the postponement “only a
breather” and said it still didn't
like it. Panhellenic concurred.
One charge against instigators
of the plan at that time was “Its
purpose is to keep full dorm resi
dence to pay for the newly built
Carson hall.” Greek alumni joined’
student groups in opposing the
