All the News That’s Filth Will
Be in Green Goose
The news-hounds are loose!
Even now they are prying- into the
private lives of campus celebrities
and socialites, listening to cooing
or objecting voices through open
windows, or from secret hiding
places near trysting spots.
‘‘Get all the stuff that’s filth to
print,” are the instructions which
have been given the muck-raking
reporters on the staff of the
GREEN GOOSE, campus smut
publication being put together by
members of Sigma Delta Chi,
men’s national honorary journal
ism fraternity. The Goose will
make its appearance Tuesday
morning.
The scandal mongers are gazing
with cynical eyes upon the insipid
ities of certain people and groups
and will soon loose their written
condemnation of certain actions of
these people which have become
more annoying as the year pro
gressed.
All will he disclosed Tuesday!
The Green Goose will flutter loose.
The Goose this year will be larg
er, more personal, and will be col
ored with action photos and inti
mate candid camera shots. Hith
erto unknown facts will be placed
before the public gaze regardless of
their nature or the station of the
personality revealed.
In an endeavor to literally fill
the paper with sparkling gems of
scandal the Goose staff is asking
that any one having a choice bit of
gossip or heresay will kindly jot
down the facts of the case and
drop them in the Filth Box which
will be set inside the door at the
College Side.

Board Tonight
Annual Dance in Eugene
Hotel Features Kwaina
Pledge Selections
The stage is all set for the last
all-campus social event of this
year, the Mortar Board ball, to be
held in the Eugene hotel tonight.
The ball will prove "who’s who”
among the camfJus males, since
the coeds are the escorts for to
night, and will show off the cream
of the male social circles on the
campus. Each "date" fortunate
enough to have received an invita
tion to the most formal campus
balls, will also sport a gardenia in
his tux, or white coat lapel—the
dainty fragrant flower to be sent
by each coed.
More Space Provided
Because of the large number of
tickets which have already been
sold to the ball, the entire lobby
and dining room of the Eugene
hotel will be turned into a grand
ballroom, and guests will dance to
the gay rhythms of Archie Parrott
and his orchestra.
A few tickets will be available
at the door of the hotel, but coeds
are urged to get the ducats at each
women’s living organization, or
from Mary McCracken, who heads
the ticket sales.
Kwama Pledging Planned
One of the surprise features of
the ball will be the pledging of
new members into Kwama, sopho
more women’s service honorary. A
number of sophomore women will
be tapped and given the colors of
the honorary during the evening.
Virginia Younie, president of the
campus chapter of Mortar Board,
is in charge of the ball. The time
is 9 o’clock; the place, Eugene
hotel; the order of dating is re

order!

124 Girls Desire
Male Popularity
Jameson Survey Shows the
Problems of Collegiate
Freshman Women
In an article Dr. S. H. Jameson,
sociology professor, is now writing
for the Journal of Higher Educa
tion on “Problems of Maladjust
ment of Freshman and Junior
Girls at the University of Oregon,”
a study begun in 1931, 56 major
problems of these girls are pre
sented.
Out of 341 girls interviewed dur
ing spring term of 1931, 124 de
sired popularity with men, 114 de
sired wider contact with women,
90 wished for participation in more
activities, 80 were disturbed about
vocational uncertainty (discour
agement in courses), 78 had dif
ficulties in living in a group, 76
worried about grades, 74 were per
turbed about high-hatting.
Only five girls had problems of
race prejudice, four had inadequate
pre-college sex instruction, and
only nine specified the dislike for
blind dating.
This study, says Dr. Jameson,
shows that gills really suffer in
adjusting themselves to an educa
tional institution, and that parents
as well as instructors should be
interested to know these major
problems confronting University
girls throughout the year.
Correction Noted
In yesterday’s Emerald it was
erroneously stated that Prof. Fred
erick S. Dunn was to speak on
“The Conjugation of Virgo, Hippo
lyta and Mary.” It should read
“The Conjunction of Virgo, Hippo
lyta and Mary."

rTough9 Play, Well-Staged,
Ends Drama Season
i —
Ending' the t campus theatrical
season for 1935-36, the University
players under the direction of
Horace Robinson, struck a new
tone in collegiate productions here.
Slightly flat in places, “Dinner at
Eight" nevertheless was a surpris
ing success considering the magni
tude of the show.
This play (which will show
again tonight at 8 o’clock), the
toughest one undertaken by the
campus players since “Dangerous
Corner,” cuts through the plated
front of the “400” to show these
figures as they really are.- The
sophisticated nature of the script
makes "Dinner at Eight" a much
harder job for college students to
stage than other productions un
dertaken this year. In places the
University players achieved that
certain gloss to their performance
that carried the play along at the
fast pace necessary to its success.
Walden Boyle, as Oliver Jordan,
the dying shipping magnate, gave
an outstanding performance. Look
ing somewhat young for the part,
he nevertheless displayed a mature
interpretation of his role. His
second appearance, in his office,
was his best bit and could he bring
the rest of his part up to this
standard he would rank well up
in the ranks of ace performers in
Guild hall history.
Helen Campbell, as Carlotta
Vance, repeated her hit perform
ance of “Outward Bound.” Her
role was enjoyable. It did not re
quire the work she put in on her
"Mrs. Cliveden-Banks” but she
carried it easily and the show
witn it.
Marian Bauer’s Millicent Jordan
was perhaps the most consistently
played role in the show. Some felt
it was slightly oVerdrawn, but it
showed work and a successful
effort to maintain an assumed
character throughout.
Bob Henderson played Dan
Packard, the rough westerner,
smoothly as long as he kept within
the bounds set by himself in re
hearsal, but when he got his
laughs he showed a tendency to
“ham” his part which spoiled an
otherwise outstanding role. If he
would force himself to play the
part as he knows he should and
not let his audience run away with
him he would be in line for great
things on this campus.
William Cottrell tackled the
toughest role he has met in his two
years on the Guild hall stage and
nearly mastered it. If his timing
had been a bit more acute he
would have given the outstanding
performance of his career here. His
part was studied, and worked out
carefully. The fact that his timing
was in some cases slow or too fast
spoiled the effect of spontaneity
necessary to the complete rendition
of his role. It is safe to say that
no one in the cast, with the pos
sible exception of Boyle and one or
two others, could have done a
better job than Cottrell, and that
would have to be proved.
The noticeable thing about “Din
ner at Eight” was that the best
performances were not necessarily
confined to the major roles. Direc
tor Robinson saw to it that the
important supporting roles in
cluded several of his more capable
'actors and actresses, which con
tributed much to the total effect
of the show.
Tonight’s performance will be
the last showing of “Dinner at
i Eight.”—B. H.

Slugsy Gunn Sends Speech
With Musical Score
By HOWARD KESSLER
A letter from Slugsy Gunn, who
left the campus in a Huff six after
her recent defeat in the race for
Junior Weekend queen, was re
ceived yesterday by the reporter
who press-agented Miss Gunn.
Liberally covered with Vassar
fingerprints, the letter ran, but not
very fast:
“Hya, kid! Hya, old boy! Hya,
old sock! Hya, old bean! Hello.
"Will consent to deliver valedic
torian address at University com
mencement, if offered proper in
ducements. Follows text of my
speech, with musical accompani
ment.”
THE ADDRESS
My dear, dear public: We are
gathered together on this suspic
ious occasion to kick the dog
around. For four years, or ten, as
in my case, we have lived in this
college immunity, isolated and
fumigated. Now, we go out to lie,
to gamble, to cheat and steal; in
short, to live as normal American
citizens.
When first I came to this Uni
versity, I When You and I Were
Young, Maggie) I was dumb, and
sweet, and childish. Now, (The
Old Grey Mare, She Ain’t What
She U.sta Be) I'm nobody’s fool
(I’m Nobody's Sweetheart Now).
I have learned the truth of the
old proverbs, “A stitch in time
saves a lot of embarrassment,"
"Stop, look and listen, or tomor
row' you may die," “Similarity
breeds contempt,” “People in glass
houses should pull down the
blinds,” and “Feople make more
noise than anybody.”
