UO Coeds Wary of Student
Marriages; Declare Wouild
Wait Until After Graduation
What's all this we hear about student marriages being a fine
thing? Despite the popping up of such thriving organizations as the
Two Can Live As Cheaply association, Betty Coed still says emphati
cally, '‘Uh-uh, not for me!” Then she adds, with doubtful air, "per
haps in some cases”—and finishes up with blithe praise of the state
of single blessedness while in college.
Being fair-minded, she admits that it might be a great deal of
fun to attend school with your husband, and doesn’t deny that in some
tUHCa X11cli i t. uiigiii, auuui
an improvement in grades. But
consensus of opinion seems to be
that college is one phase of life,
and marriage quite another, and
“never the twain shall meet,” that
Is, hardly ever.
Marriage Thought Risk
According to Genevieve McNiece,
Sigma Kappa of the auburn hair,
marriage would cause one to miss
many activities in college that
there would be no time for—activi- 1
ties essential to an enjoyment of
school life. “You see so many stu
dents apparently madly in love,
then in a month or so it’s all over.
It’s so hard to tell if these college
attachments will be lasting.”
Josephine McGilchrist of Kappa
Alpha Theta emphatically main
tained that she "wouldn’t even con
sider it!” She believes that it
would be difficult to mix college
and marriage and do justice to
both, and says that when a student
has finished school there is plenty
of time to consider marriage.
Betty Jane Casey, regal Kappa,
is also skeptical about the success
of student marriages. "Marriage
and education don’t mix,” she re
marked, "that is, not as I regard
marriage. When I’m married, I
want a home.”
Pert Felker Morris, Pi Phi, when
asked her opinion, said, "Oh, no!”
and refused to commit herself fur
Julia LaBarre, Sigma Kappa,
said, thoughtfully, that college is
an excellent test for the couple to
find out if they are really in love.
“If the couple can get along
throughout their time in college, it
is a good proof that they are real
ly in love,” she remarked. She
made some concession to marriage
by saying that it was a fine climax

ward to entering into the business
world when she graduates. “I want
to be on my own for a while,” she
affirms. “I want to see if I car
accomplish something by myselt
before I get married.”
Thelma Garretson, Alpha Ch
Omega, said, "I think I'd wait. Col
lege changes a person so much
that someone you might like when
you were in school probably would
n't appeal to you at all after col
lege.” She felt that student mar

Kappa Jean Favier, in answer to
a question on her opinion about
marriage, brought forth, with a
smile, a shining engagement ring.
However, she avers that she will
leave school when she gets mar
Regan McCoy believes that mar
riage should be postponed until af
ter school, and also thinks that
college might serve as a test.
Carmen Curry and Betty Coon,
cooperating in their answer,
thought that the man should be
earning enough money to establish
a home before he should consider
marriage. They also believed that
the average student has too hazy
an idea of what he wishes to do
Loree Windsor believes that col
lege students are not mature
enough for marriage, and Margaret
Keene believes student marriage
too great a risk, for the student
may want something entirely dif
ferent after graduation than he has
planned on during his school years.

What, means it ail this abuse of
women so prevalent in the Emer
ald lately? Everything from say
ing they’re all alike to nasty re
marks about bare knees and the
way they take off their coats in
classrooms! High time it is that
somebody rises in defense of our
berated sex, we say.
Take for instance this matter of
the coed mold. We admit that the
gushing type who thinks that col
lege is just too much fun, and
wants everyone to know it, is a
bit nauseating. But we can’t quite
see that every coed on the Univer
sity campus is that type.
There are many serious,
charming girls who are really well
worth knowing. They are a bit
apt to lie overlooked by the av
erage man, however, because
they have either too much Intel
ligence, or too good sense of hu
mor to indulge in the standard
college “line,” or to flatter his
male ego. And so he wanders
back to fields where he is more
appreciated, and basks in a warm
shower of “perfects” and “gu
rnnds” and is happy.
About the bare knees we can bu1
say humbly, "Well, maybe w<
ain't purty, but we’re shore com
fortable.” To use this time-worr
device as a source of sex appeal
is far from the coed's mind wher
she rolls her hose of a morning'. Ii
someone would only work out a
really comfortable way of keeping
them up less unattractively, how
happy we'd be.
But, at the time this paper went
to press, no one had, so what are
we going to do ? It seems a pity,
though, to ruin so heartlessly the
beauty of our campus. We can only
plead for forgiveness—and pursue
our unbeautiful way.

What are the correct sizes,
shapes, anil colors for on^s per
sonal writing paper?
The shape anil size both should
depend on one’s handwriting-. Very
large handwriting calls for large
size paper. The shape also de
pends upon the spacing of the lines
which is typical of the writer, and
whether a wide or narrow margin
is used. Low, spread-out writing;
looks best on a square sheet of
paper. Tall writing looks best on
long, narrow paper. Color is a
matter of personal choice as long
as it is conservative.
What docs one do al>out writing
a “Bread and Butter” letter?
To many, these thank you letters
are harder to write than having
teeth pulled. One way to avoid
this feeling is to pretend you are
writing to a friend thanking her
for a good time. Do this on an odd
scrap of paper, copy it off on a
page headed to your hostess, add.
“my love to the family and thank
you again for asking me,” sign it. 1
and there you are! However, be
sure you write it!
What is the proper sequence of
pages in letter writing?
If longer than one page, the
third page is generally used next,
as this leaves the last page blank
and the writing is not visible ,
through the envelope. One may;
write first, second, third, and j
fourth pages in order or any se
quence she wishes. Some people
repeat the last word on a page at
the top of the next for clarity.
Is the use of sealing wax cor
Yes, if you use it carefully and
skilfully. Choose a plain color, :

Many new styles have made their debut on the

been swing skirts, metal cloth, cocktail shoes, and

TY SALON has a remarkable ab
ility to design new hair dresses
to suit one’s personality. It is nice
to have a hair dress that is adapt
able to all campus functions, in
the classroom and on dates.
Along with this mode, flowers to
adorn the hair have become quite
a vogue. Paris doesn't have so
much over the Oregon coeds. If
one took notice at the past col
lege functions, the The Berg Fash
ion show, the Park, and campus
dances, one would quite agree with

very striking idea. For campus

very smart suit of angora wool that she found at

pockets are trimmed with the rust and the belt
runs through the three loops of rust on the pockets.
The new military shoulders are one of the many
new features of the outfit.
At BEARDS, JEAN FARRENS, GAMMA PHI

The new attraction on this dress is the cellophane
stripes that add much to it.
These two dresses are very excellent samples of
the newest of new styles.
Studying for Exams
We have made a very brilliant discovery. After
three years practice oil the better methods of study
ing, we come to the conclusion, contrary to what
the professor teaches, that comfort is one of the
main essentials. THE BROADWAY INC. has the
cleverest cotton dresses. These dresses are of the
latest styles, swing skirt, and all. White rick-rack
braid, short puffed sleeves, and pique collars are
some of the trimmings. We know that it would be
worth your while to drop in to see these little num
bers, because we know that after seeing them, you
would have to have one or two to study in. They
are extremely comfortable to wear.
We want to let you in on a little bit of fun. Can
