In her hand, and tries to get up to
the bulletin board and open the door,
but she has quite a time doing it.
Pretty soon she makes it, however,
and when she does she leaves In a
hurry and she doesn't look as if all
this sort of thing makes her too
happy; in fact, she looks a little sad,
which we admire her for, but maybe
it's imagination. The names being
posted, the heftier babes from each
lit who are up close to the board
start tho counting and the shouting
which rapidly works its way back to
the fringe of the crowd and there
multiplies. The next step is for girls
to begin throwing themselves into
each others arms, which is contrary
to the wiiy of things, insincere look-
ing, and a groat waste of women, to
our way of thinking. However, it goes
on for quite awhile. Everybody in
the E.B.'s (one of the societies) tries
to see how loud they can say or
holler "eighteen" until one gal hits
a high C and the rest pause in ad-
miration.
One o'clock slips up ami finds tho
crowd gone except for a freshman or
two still trying to figure out the dif-
ference between sororities and liter-
ary societies. That was pledging day
—last Monday—quite a day!

A wind tunnel with air speeds up

the University of Santa Clara.
Meeting for the first time on their
new Thursday afternoon schedule,
the Student Council ruled yesterday
that only two offices would be open
in the runoff elections set for Oc
tober 14—the position of secretary-
treasurer of the senior class and as-
sistant business manager of the
Thresher. The group invoked a by-
law passed last December 19 to rule
that Lee Capps was the only student
eligible for tho vacated office of
business manager of the Thresher.
The deadline for petitions is today
at noon, according to the student head,
Jimmy Miller. Twenty-five signatures
are necessary for the offices involved.

GUIKMTEID for LIFE
by Parker's ^ Blue Diamond
What'* the uae of being a quick-thinker if your
pen won't work when your brain doeB?
A college professor found that this gets many a
student down. So he invented a brand-new way of
filling pens—a way thai makes more room for ink
INSIDE by dispensing with the customary rubber
ink sac.
Parker spent S yean to engineer this revolu-
tionary principle to perfection—this sacless "One-
Hand" Filler—the Parker Vaeumatic—the largest
selling pen In the world today.
A pen that holds nearly twice as much ink as our
old style, and shows days ahead if it's running low,
■0 it won't run dry. whose lubricated I t K Gold
Point—non-brittle, extra resilient—is tipped with
Osmiridium so smooth and hard and dense that it
won't wear scratchy as long as you live/ ■
And ita crowning glory is that streamlined Pearl
and Jet style — laminated, Ring upon Ring, an
shimmering as velvet—wholly smart, original and
exclusive—winner of the Pen Beauty contest.
Go and see it and try It—don't make the mistake
of writing "the hard way" throughout your college
course and life's career.

The law, which became effective Sep-
tember 1, 1940, provides that only
persons having worked sixteen weeks
on a student publication are eligible
for an office on that publication.
Capps, who submitted a petition yes-
terday, is thus automatically elected
to the post he has been holding un-
der appointment.
Offices Vacated Last June
The three offices of business man-
ager and assistant business manager
of the Thresher anil .secretary-
treasurer of the senior class became
vacant last June. Boh .Worn mack and
Willis Stewart withdrew beeauijo of
the "time involved in carrying out
engineering courses. Pat Nicholson,
who was elevated from assistant
business manager to business man-
ager after Wommaek's withdrawal,
resigned under a provision of the
constitution which does not allow any
one person to hold two major offices.
Edward Schulenburg is the only
candidate for secretary-treasurer of
the senior class who has presented
his petition to the Student Council;
however, David Farnsworth is ex-
pected to file by the deadline: at noon
today. Farnsworth has not had B. A.
200, which is required by the consti-
tution of the Student Association, but
lie was approved on the. basis of his
practical experience by the Student
Council, Bursar J. T. McCants, and
Registrar S. G. McCann.
By-Law Waived
Article F lf regarding publications
qualifications, was waived by the
Council for the Monday election of
assistant business manager of the
Thresher. The law stipulates sixteen
weeks experience on the staff as a
requirement for eligibility. The Coun-
cil announced that there is no one
who can meet this requirement; there-
fore it was necessary to waive the
article for the present election.
Manro Oberwetter, assistant busi-
ness manager of the Thresher at
the present, is the only candidate who
has indicated his intention to run
for the assistautship. It is under-
stood that he will make the campaign
with tho full support of the busi-
ness and editorial staffs.
Acting only a few hours before the
outbreak of defiance to the adminis-
trative ban on hazing, the student
council adopted in its initial
meeting of the year a resolution des-
tined to give sophomore representa-
tives the power of framing their own
anti-hazing legislation. It was worded
as follows: ". . . the student council
has felt the need for clarification of
the relations between freshman and
sophomore classes, and feels thatdef-
inite rules should be drawn up so that
those relations can be carried on with-
out regrettable incident."
Miller Explains
Miller explained later that the reso-
lution was adopted partially to sup-
port the administration ban on haz-
ing, which was enforced last Thurs-
day for the first time in twenty-
seven years, and partially to give
sophomores the chance for self-rule.
The council re-elected J. T. Mc-
Cants, bursar of the Institute, to his
post as council adviser from the fac-
ulty, and also returned to office
Elizabeth Knapp, junior representa-
tive who served last "year as secre-
tary. Two new members also were ap-
pointed to the joint student-alumni
board which governs the Owl, student
magazine. The new appointees are
Dewitt Gayle, junior from Dallas, and
Warren Simpson, a senior engineer
who is also serving as secretary of
the student association.
An election committee to regulate
all balloting on the campus was
chosen by the council from among its
own membership. These committee-
men, who must be seniors, are Paul
Bybee, Carolyn Conway, and Harvey
Am merman. President Miller is auto-
matically a member of the election
committee.

To Fulfill Appointed
Bate For Pictures
Students are still fallirtg to keep
their Campanile picture appointments
with Henry Stern, photographer, ac-
cording to Kenneth Arthur, editor.
"We are sure to have a hectic last
minute rush if everyone misses his
appointment date," Arthur said. "Nat-
urally the photographer can't do his
best work when there is such a mad
scramble at the last minute. It is to
the student's best advantage to have
hi , picture made on schedule."
Henry Stern's studios are located
on the second floor of the West Build-
ing on Main Street.
