Go Ahead and Dance !
<IT\ANCE, dance, dance! My God, will they ever get enough
T* of it!”
Young folks will dance, they crave dancing, and they MUST
dance. Millions of years ago the Piltdown man, a primitive
human, leaped rhythmically about venting his emotions by the
patter of his feet or the beat of stone upon stone. Uncivilized
men throughout the ages have danced symbolically of their
thoughts. Our forefathers squared themselves about for the
schottische or the quadrille just as the folk of today settle down
to the good old fox-trot or tango.
• Dancing is a custom without an end. Fads in method pop
up here and there, but fundamentally the emotions derived from
true rhythm are the same.
'Twould have been shocking, no doubt, to see grandmother
"8rest her head against her partner’s cheek in the presence of
• strangers. We can neither imagine grandmother exposing her
■ ; dainty knee, nor earnestly puffing on a cigarette. Let us merely
• mark that down as a few of society’s many changes.
The style of dancing has so changed that it would be a tough
job to persuade young Joe College to remain the required six
inches from his partner. As a matter of fact, he wouldn’t do it.
And this leads us to the reason why dancing has become so pop
ular that this week on the campus of the University of Oregon
. there was an election rally dance Wednesday night, another last
night, and will be a public dance for students tonight, a Jun
ioi/all-campus dance Saturday night, and another dance given
*. ' especially for the students Sunday evening.
‘ •"•Might we be too crass by saying that the student likes so
° much dancing because it provides a splendid opportunity for Dim
tV cirri brace his girl, any girl, his roommate's girl in public? LeL
us teave that out, for at most it is only a petty reason.
,AsThe real reason students or any young people dance, and per
. haps^overtlo it, is because it is one of the very few things they
care to do t,hat does not place them in disgrace with their elders.
:= ‘ . The Week of Weeks
° ' *.*'■ y a: *■
AT the head® of the list of activities undertaken by the lour
classes of students 'in.the University* we place Junior Week
end. Covering a multitude^ of .small activities the week-end
which now faces us is by far the most momentous undertaking
of arty single group of students. Already they, the members
of the junior class, are to bo congratulated, and, if the affair is
a success, they may be congratulated even more enthusiastically.
Officially opening Junior- Week-end is the campus luncheon.
One thing essential for any undertaking is a good beginning, and
a good beginning in this case rests with the weather man. If
praying could be of any .value, his heart should he touched
and now it looks as if he might be a little kind. So let us
think little of how lonely a rain-filled lunch box will look.
Baseball enthusiasts will have to make a quick decision be
tween dancing on the old tennis courts and the ball game.
Undoubtedly the greatest attraction of the day will be tire
canoe fete. And rightly so, because those who have previously
witnessed the display of floats on the venerable mill-race are
quite aware of the spectacle's beauty. One word to the canoe
fete committee. Please do not try the patience of the spectators
by delaying the parade, or by spacing the floats so greatly. Dif
ficulty of launching the massive structures is granted, but the
crowd is often unaware of this.
Lastly, the Emerald wishes the best of luck to all those who
have so devoted their efforts to entertain others.
Our idea of the meanest professor in the world is one who
would give an hour quiz today.
Someone said there was election of student body officers

Caroline Card just dropped in to
ask us why we made that dumb
crack about the Alpha Phis the
other night. “Tsk! Tsk!” ex
claims the young lady, “Twice now
you’ve made a remark about my
house and neither time have we
been able to see the point. Are
you dumb, or are we?”
To this let us reply, as we bow
are dejected heads in shame, that
we, and we alone, stand at fault.
It seems that we sent out a per
fectly good Alpha Phi story to the
press the other night, but someone
went to sleep and left it ail out
with the exception of the last par
agraph. Therefore, let us make
amends by printing all the dirt.
i And what’s this scandalous bit
! of news we’ve just picked up from
| the Alpha Phi house. It seems that
j three notorious frosh, the. three
! mosqueeters, as it were, decided to*'
| get a bang out of college by put
ting dynamite under certain vie- !
| tims selected at random from the
j school at large. They, therefore, I
called to their assistance the Beil '
telephone company and, putting
their own house on the spot, called
•fane Munk. “Hello, Janie darling,” ,
lisped one of the sweet little
things. “This is the Emerald office,
and we’d like to interview you for
the paper.” Well, to make a long '
story more boiesome, Miss Munk
gave a complete description of her
favorite hobbies, namely horseback
riding and golf. Finally she j
thanked the reporter profusely for
calling her. !
This dastardly deed performed, ,
the three girls turned their ener- ,
gies to other fields. After listening
to John Finley spiel for about an
hour on the cultural values of mu
,-ic they decided that they’d better
get rid of him before he decided
to play something over the phone
for. their benefit. After promising
the budding young musician pages
of publicity, the sweet young
things hung up. (That is, they
hung the phone receiver up.)
Heaven knows, these mosquee
ters had already’ created disaster
enough, but were they willing to
stop there? Not on your life!
What must they do but call up
sweet, trusting Eleanor Cleveland
and make a date to meet her at
the Alt building in order to inter
view her. Well, after waiting there
till about midnight Eleanor decid
ed that her interviewer had met
with an accident so she wended
her way sadly homeward.
It is rumored that Polly Anne
Jorgenson is also among the list
of the duped, but last night she
was strenuously denying that she
had misplaced confidence in any
one. Meanwhile three Alpha Phis
go blithely on through life, disre
garding all the havoc they have
caused, and smiling wisely to them
selves each time someone goes into
raptures about horses, golf, art,
The moral of this little tale
should he taken quite to heart.
Don’t believe everything an Alpha
Phi may tell you over the tele

Well today is campus luncheon,

eager anticipation we are to really
see what we paid our fifty cents
for at the beginning of the term.
Oh well, we do relish pickles!
