On Race Problem
"Racial Discrimination In Eu
gene" wiU be the topic of a talk by
the Rev. Neil Culbertaon, a minis
ter taking advanced studies at the
University, at a meeting at 4 p.rn.
today in the Student Union.
The meeting has been called to
determine whether there Im suffi
clent interest on the capipus for
reactivation of the student chap
ter of the National Association for
|hc Advancement of Colored Peo
ple. The organization became de
funct here laat year.
All students and faculty mem
bers, regardless of race, creed or
color, who are interested in the
preservation of fundamental hu
man rights, are invited to the :
meeting, said Charles Aull, gradu
ate student in mathematics.

ants for the session, said that
Miss Marian Anderson, noted col
ored concert artist who sings Wed- I
nesday night in McArthur court, !
is being invited to the meeting.
Interest in the NAACP has been
revived among some students re-!
cently, according to Ault, by the j
testimony on colored housing con- •
dltions in Eugene. This was pro- 1
sented by Edwin C. Berry, execu
tive secretary of the Urban league :
of Portland, before the state fair
employment practices committee,
and by a reported threat to burn
down a Eugene house which was
leased to a colored family.
Among the stated purposes of
the NAACP are: To secure the
vote for Negroes everywhere in the
Uited States: to abolish injustices
in legal procedure, particularly
criminal procedure, based solely!
on color or race; to secure equit- '
able distribution of funds for edu
cation; to abolish segregation, dis
crimination, insult and humiliation
based on race or color; to equalize
the opportunity to work in all '
fields with equal pay for equal
work and to abolish discrimination
against Negroes in the exercise of
labor's right of collective bargain- i
Ing through membership in orga- '
nteed labor unions.

Temporary 'Status Quo'
Proposed by P T & T Official
By Phil Bettens
The Pacific Telephone and Tele
graph company wants University
students to accept the "status quo"
the pay telephones now in opera
tion here — for possibly seven
months while the company investi
gates similar situations in other
areas of the country.
Kred Scholl, PT&T general com
mercial manager for Oregon, made
this request of Dick Kading, chair
man of the ASUO telephone com
mittee, while conferring with Kad
ing here Tuesday. Accompanying
Scholl were R. B. Bacon, PT&T
southern Oregon district manager
and W. G. Keith, PT&T general
commercial engineer for Oregon.
Survey Plan Told
The proposed survey would take
at least 60 or 90 days, Scholl sajd
However, the company would defi
nitely complete it by the beginning
of next fall term.
He said that the company want
ed to avoid a formal hearing be
fore the Public Utilities commis
sion — that such hearings were
lengthy, time-consuming, expen
sive and were sometimes delayed
quite a while.
Scholl Quizzed
He was asked by this reporter:
"If the students filed a formal
protest, and a hearing was called
by the PUC, what do you think
would be the result?"
"1 think we (the PT&Ti would
win," he answered. 'We think the
present tariff is sound and equit
"Would you accept the status
quo (the pay telephones» until we
make a survey to find out more
about other areas?" was .Scholl's
request. "Perhaps then well be
able to offer another .solution.” He
aded, however, that he had no idea
of what that solution might be.
Delay Not Hiatt
Scboll said that this request for
a delay was not an attempt to
"stall” the students.
"We want to investigate thor
oughly the administration of this
tariff throughout the country."
fThe PT&Ts tariff provides for'
coin box service in semi-public in
stitutions; the PT&T has said that
fraternities, sororities, co-ops and
dormitories are semi-public insti
tutions. )

ATO Reinstated in A GS
With Disciplinary Provision
Alpha Tau Omega's petition for
reinstatement in the Associated!
Greek students, campus political
group, was accepted by a 22 to 6
vote at Tuesday's AGS meeting.
Under the AGS constitution,
ATO will be subject to a one year
disciplinary period during which
time they will have a vote in the
organization, but not be allowed
any candidates for ASUO or AGS
The fraternity's petition for re
instatement was read at the last
AGS meeting and the vote taken
at this meeting in accordance with
the constitution.
Left AGS
Alpha Tau Omega left the Greek
bloc two years ago when their can
didate for student body president,
Barry Mountain, failed to get the
AGS nomination. They joined the
United Students association, a coa
lition party of Greeks and inde
pendents, and Mountain was nom
inated by USA and won the stu
dent body president election.
A proposal to amend the consti
tution was read to the group but
a motion was passed to table the
proposal until the next meeting.
The proposed amendment would
provide for a two year disciplinary
period instead of one-year for
houses reinstated in the organiza
tion. During this two-year period,
they would again have a vote but
be allowed no ASUO or AGS can
didates. The proposed amendment
was presented by Dick Kading,
Sigma Phi Epsilon president.
Amendment's Provisions
In addition the amendment
would provide that approval of a
petition for reinstatement must be
made by a two-thirds vote instead
of the present simple majority.
Another amendment proposal
was also discussed concerning the
amount of time to eiapse between
the presentation of a petition for
reinstatement and the next meet
ing in which it is voted upon. It
was suggested that a specific time
between these meetings be pro
vided for in the constitution.

The company's only alternative
plan was the intra-campus ex

by the ASUO senate.
Phone Shortage Questioned
In view of the national demand
for telephone service, Scholl was
asked, wouldn’t the intra-campus
exchange—which would require
about four or five phone# in eacls
living organiaztion—deprive ctherir
of phone service?
No. he answered. The rraiiv

The PT&T is not trying to make

using any sehoo! as a "test area."
Scholl said that apparently the
students had been misinformed

Committee Awaits
Honor Discussion
The honor code ccmmittee's
three-man delegation to Stanford,
university gave indications to the
committee Tuesday of what its
"Stanford honor system report”
will contain.
The group, including llerv
Hampton. Jean Gould and John
Beal, returned Monday night. They
went to Stanford Thursday.
Hampton, who led the delega
tion, said they talked to students
and faculty members and foundk
almost unanimous approval of the
Palo Alto school's system. One fac
tor contributing to its success, ac
cording to those talked to, ’was
Stanford’s "honor spirit."
The report will be made to the
committee at its Tuesday meeting,
Hampton said.
The talk that the "skeleton com
mittee" had Thursday with Orlan
do Hollis, dean of the law school,
was discussed. (The Stanford dele^
gation was r.ot at that meeting.)
The problem discussed was wheth
er it was better to install an honor
system in the whole university at
one time or in upper division
school? as they desire.
The matter will be discussed by
a segment of the committee with
the discipline committee Friday.
The problem of possible conflict
with the proposed honor council
and the present student court was
referred to subcommittee, to be
discussed between the latter group
and Fred F.isser, student court
