The hustle and bustle of Junior
Week-end with the many athletic
events and the annual Junior Prom
kept the campus busy not only dur
ing the week-end but for several
days before. Many engagements
were announced during the last few
days and many alumnae were visit
ors on the campus.
• • •
The annual Junior Prom had the
distinction of being the first student
body dance to be held in McArthur
court. Transformed into an Aztec
palace with colored lights reflected
on the elaborate designs, the pa^
vilion made a wonderful scene for
the last dance of the college year.
About 500 couples were present.
The Indian atmosphere was inten
sified by the arrival on horseback of
an “Aztec maiden” who climbed to
the heights of the balcony and there
gave an interpretive dance against
a background of a pagan altar.
In the receiving line were Gov
ernor and Mrs. Patterson, President
and Mrs. Hall, Mr. and Mrs. George
T. Gerlinger, Dr. and Mrs. John
Straub, Judge and Mrs. Lawrence
T. Harris, Mr. and Mrs. Karl Qn

The engagement of Miss Nona
Proctor to Mr. Campbell Church
was made known at the PM Delta
Theta house in a very novel manner
^ last Friday evening. Mr. Church
showed a five-reel motion picture of
his trip in Alaska last summer, for
which he assembled the members of
the fraternity in the living room
after dinner. After the last picture,
a slide flashed on the screen an
nouncing the engagement.
Miss Proctor is the daughter of
A. Philmister Proctor, famous sculp
tor and the artist who made the
statue or "me moneer" winch
stands in front of the library. Miss
Proctor recently returned from
Paris where she was attending
school. Mr. Church, who is a resi
dent of Eugene, is a junior on the
campus and a member of Phi Delta

After the Junior Prom on Satur
day night, the announcement of
the engagement of Miss Kathryn
Short and Mr. Harold Brumfield
was made at the Delta Gamma and
Alpha Tau Omega houses. The

and each place was marked with a
corsage carrying heart-shaped cards
with the names of the two printed
upon them. Both young people are
seniors in the University and Mr.

Miss Ethel Montgomery an
nounced her engagement to Mr.
Ralph Herron at the Kappa Delta
house on Friday evening. The table
was decorated with a large pink
hat as a centerpiece with a band
around it asking that the news it
contained be “kept under your
hats.” Little folders with the pic
tures of the couple were drawn
from the hat by little pink ribbons
which led to each place. Rosebuds,
sweet peas and cream colored tapers
decorated the table. The favors
were miniature pink hats.

At a quiet ceremony on Thurs
day, May 12, in Marshfield, Miss
Geneva Smith was married to Mr. 1
Arnold Hasle. Miss Smith’s father, ^

has been transferred by his busi
ness firm. Mrs. Hasle will follow

Out in front of the store the other day a lady broke her
chain necklace as she stepped out of her car. She came right
on into the store here and Mr. Skeie had the break repaired
in short order.
Maybe you’ve had a similar accident. Or maybe you have
some jewelry at home that needs repairing. Kings, necklaces,
mesh bags, bracelets, silver table articles, etc.
Mr. Skeie repairs jewelry even better than I write ads. I
couldn’t recommend him any higher than that!
If It comes from Skeie’s

Mrs. Hasle is a graduate of the

A Logical Incompatibility?
To the editor:
What is wrong with making it
hompujsory that college students
dance to the “Pipe of the Militar
ist”? Will investigation reveal con
This question is being asked spon
taneously throughout our country.
From the viewpoint of those who
believe in freedom of the individual
mind, and absolute tolerance, the
most hopeful phase of the whole
situation! is that students in all
parts of the United States are be
ing moved to protest—some because
they respect a spirit of freedom of
thought; some because they object
to the spirit of war; and a great
many (a rapidly increasing number)
because of a sense of humor aroused
by the incongruity of the proceed
ings of the E. O. T. C. in an institu
tion of higher learning.
A less encouraging aspect is to
find educational authority ready to
be indirectly caught with what some
folks might wish to call, if they
only dared, the “chaff of pseudo
educationalism.” Along with a de
nunciation of war in the abstract,
we are conducting an organization
to pass on the habit of militarism—
through means of compulsion!
In institutions jealous for free
dom of thought nothing could be
more subversive to the true aims
of education than the inculcation
of the military mind. Modern
thought has, at least nominally, out

grown a feeling of allegiance to
ward perpetuation of traditionalism
in our institutions. It is reasonable
to believe that in an institution of
rationalized thought, nominalism
can give way to reality.
It may appear to be only in
cidental that militarism is being so
widely discussed in its relation to
free thought; but the idea of com
pulsory military training is on trial.
The trial arises as an aspect of the
inevitable articulation of minds in
the making, under influence of mod
ern thought, as opposed to that of
the dark ages.
