added that the small budget set
aside for such a program by the
Lane County juvenile department
is hardly enough to accomplish
Another thing Wilhelm deplored
was the fact that society in gen
eral is less interested in the pre
vention of the crime than in its
punishment. He pointed out that it
would cost the state of Oregon less
to prevent people from becoming
criminals, than to keep them in
prison after they have committed
Boys Aren’t Bad
Briggs and Wilhelm pointed out
that the boys they are working
with are not really bad. They have
committed no serious offenses, just
mischievious things like running
away from home.
Conditions at the SKipworui ju
venile Home were deplored by both
the “big brothers.” They agreed |
that probably the supervisor had ;
had no training in sociology, but
that the low wages paid the super
visor were probably responsible.
The recreation facilities at the
home are in bad shape, the men
agreed. For example, Wilhelm said
that the pool table is covered with
a blanket and without pockets.
The men had hope, however, that
when the "big brother” program
really gets underway, they can get
the backing of a service club, such
as Rotary, and more students will
become "big brothers” and that
then they will really have some
effect on the juvenile conditions in
The men in the “big brother"
program have many reasons for
working in it. All agreed that it
“makes you feel good to think
that you have done some good for
others”. Other reasons advanced
were that “it is good training for
getting along with people”;
"Makes you feel a little bit more
broad minded”; and “the experi
ence of being, an influence on a

and Miss Wright.
Freshman Class President Bob
Glass did not vote and three other
senate members were not present.
Miss Wright's plan was a two
part proposal; one involving an
all-campus ASUO sponsored pri
mary and the other party conven
tions for nominating presidential

tion system. Miss Wright explain
ed, the candidates would need to
secure delegates from schools on
campus to appear on the ballot.
The delegates would not be held
to supporting their candidate after
the first vote in the nominating
She stated that the new plan
would increase student interest,
necessitate presidential candidates
working harder for nomination and
“be the first step to put participa
tion in elections on something be
side a social basis.”
She admitted it might entail ad
ditional cost and be difficult to ad
minister but pointed out the ASUO
trust fund could be made avail
able if the senate thought the plan
was worth while.
“It would be up to the senate to
see that it worked smoothly," she
said. That body does have to ini
tiate the plan through constitu
tional provision, she explained.
Student senator - at - large Bill
Frye said that AGS did have a
primary among its member houses
and that presidential candidates
were forced to work hard before
that party's nominations.
"And you've got as much inter
est (in campus elections) as you'll
get,” he added. The plan, he stated,
would not increase interest among
students above that which it had
been in the past.

They tried to fool him with the “quick-trick”
cigarette mildness tests—hut he wouldn’t go astray!
We know as well as he there’s only one fair way to
test cigarette mildness. And millions of smokers agree!
It’s the sensible test... the 30-Day Camel
Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try Camels
as your steady smoke, on a day-after-day,
pack-after-pack basis. No snap judgments. Once
you’ve tried Camels for 30 days in your “T-Zone”
(T for Throat, T for Taste), you’ll see why...
