Junior Women Will Honor Seniors of Annual YW Breakfast >
Charming Queen Betty I Truly
Regal In Appearance, Tastes;
Has Many Interests, Hobbies
By GLADYS BATTLESON
Betty Pownall, 1937 Oregon Junior weekend queen, possesses truly
queenly tastes and characteristics, as revealed in an interview yes
An embodiment of charm, grace, feminine appeal, a certain sweet
shyness which makes her lovable to all who know her, Queen Betty I,
can be called “queenly.”
Betty was wearing a pink blouse with a large brilliant clasp at the
neck, a blue coat, and wearing a single brilliant ring on her right hand.
She said that she was majoring
in sociology and would like to do
field work. When asked about her
preference between a career and
marriage, she said she had not
thought much about getting mar
“I like to travel very much.”
Betty spent two weeks in Califor
nia last term. She said she enjoyed
a trip to the Pi Beta Phi conven
tion last summer, and to New
York, returning by boat by way
of New Orleans.
"It’s so much fun, she said, ‘‘to
go to any place you hear a lot
When asked what her greatest
thrill was, she replied that it was
her election as Junior weekend
queen. ‘‘When Dick Litfin called
to tell me, I wouldn’t believe him.
I was sure he was just kidding.”
In spite of her election as Junior
weekend queen, as Little Colonel
for the Military ball last year, and
as queen of the May fete during
her senior year at St. Helen’s Hall,
in spite of her good looks, her
reputation as one of Oregon’s best
dressed women, Betty I is un
spoiled and not a bit conceited.
‘‘Usually, what I want is differ

tioned about her taste in clothes.
"I like simple things. I don’t par
ticularly plan what I buy, but
sales-girls who know me put things
aside for me which they think I
may like.” She builds up her out
fits with smart accessories. “Some
times, I buy something very differ
ent for which I am sorry later,”
she laughingly said. She has no
favorite color for her clothes, but
likes gay, bright things.
Her hobbies are collecting pen

To Tailored Saits
With the spring season upon us
— elusive though it has been—the
coed feels symptoms of two dis
turbing forces. The first is spring
fever, and the second is the desire
to wear ■ something bright and
new and different especially if
she is getting last year’s clothes

A few bright, new accessories
can do wonders in dressing up last

Blouses in Print
A blouse in one of the gay new
prints is of inestimable value in
giving that fresh look. Line your

around your head. Then, for dash,
plop a bunch of vivid flowers in
the front of the turban and a
matching bunch at the throat or
belt of the dress.
For that "pizazz" you’ve been
hearing so much about, get a calot

well the charming personality of

Joe Doakes: Campus Politician
By MARTHA STEWART
,We’ll call him Joe Doakes. . . .
because he really needs a name,
and because somehow that good
old standby, Joe Doakes, seems to
fit him very well.
Joe was a fine upstanding lad,
one of the bright boys of the
campus. From the day he first set j
foot on the sod of the University 1
peoples’ eyes lighted when they
looked at him, and wise upper
classmen smiled hopefully.
“Ah," they murmured. “He'll do
big things some day.’’
And they proved their faith in
hun by seeing that he was elected
president of the freshman class.
The boys in his house liked the
way he ran things. They liked the
way his brothers and his friends,
and the friends of his friends took
care of all the freshman class ac
tivities. They even liked the noises
houses of the opposing factions
made about his administration.
* * *
Next year Joe ran for sopho
more president, and because he
was such a fine upstanding lad,
and because he was one of the
bright boys of the campus, Joe got
elected. His fraternity brothers
liked the way he ran sophomore '
affairs almost better than the way
he’d run freshman politics the year
before, and so they put him in as
junior president next year.
“Vote for Joe Doakes," their
campaign cry rang. “Joe is the
choice of the junior class.” That
got 'em. There was no doubt about
it! Joe was the man for the office.
And then came spring term of
Joe Doakes' junior year. Suddenly
around the campus arose a great
hue and cry about dirty politics.
“The side supporting the win
ning candidate always gets the
gravy," the losing side gleeped
“It ain’t fair. We demand clan
play in this political racket."
And so, at last, after much loud
wailing they decide to clean up
“No gravy" they decided. “Ap
pointments are !to be ms\ie on
merit alone. No distinction be
tween houses or independents. The
good men will lead campus activi
ties next year.”
The losing side, of course, led
the crusade against corruption in
campus politics. Somehow they
couldn't seem to arouse much en
thusiasm among the members of
the other faction.
"Politics aren’t so dirty.” they’d
insist, or, “Sorry we’re too busy
with our studies. Can’t be bothered
about cleaning up the balloting
this year.” And so the losing fac
tion carried on bravely alone.
♦ ♦ ♦
“The thing to do,” the boys de
cided when they got their heads
together around the fireplace of
one of the smaller fraternities to
organize their forces, “the thing
to do is to put a boy up for elec
tion that is practically unbeatable.
Then we’ll get fair play." And so
after a long discussion they de
cided Joe Doakes was the man to
clean up campus politics.
Joe was such a fine upstanding
lad, and one of the bright boys of
After the meeting Joe started
“Clean up campus politics!
Elect Joe Doakes,” the sandwich
board that he wore and left out
side his classroom read.
“Vote for me,” he shouted from
his soap box outside the library at
noon, “Get rid of corruption in

all this nasty old political gravy.”
And so on election day all the
little boys and girls turned out at
the “Y” to vote for that fine up
standing lad, Joe Doakes, because
he was going to clean up politics
and make appointments safe for
deserving college students.

And that night there was great
merrymaking on the campus, be
cause Joe Doakes had won the stu
dent body election, and there
would be no more gravy any more.
‘‘H'ray for Joe,” everyone shout
' ed. ‘‘Joe has buried all that old
corruption stuff that used to haunt
our happy tongs.”
And the next fall when Joe took
office he got to choose the home
coming directorate, and the Dad’s
day committee, and all his friends
gathered around so Joe would be
sure and see them when he did his
picking. And good old Joe, he did
n’t forget a one of them. No sir,
every single house that had sup
ported him got represented. Joe
didn't leave out a one.
“Good old Joe,” they applauded
thankfully. “No gravy. Only the
deserving get appointments now.”
Margerg Kissling* BA Major
Has Long Record of Efficient
And Capable Mark at College
By CLARE IGOE
Little and friendly, Margery Kissling, senior in business administra
tion school, and hopes to go into merchandising, ultimately working
things done in a quiet anci efficient way.
Matgery will be graduated this year from the business administra
tion school, and hopes to go into merhandising, ultimately working
up to being a buyer. Between courses in school she has sandwiched in
many activities, always keeping busy—sometimes too busy, she rue
Margery was vice-president of
Kwama, is a member of Phi Chi
Theta, business administration hon
orary, Phi Theta Upsilon, junior
women's service honorary, and
Gamma Alpha Chi, advertising
Besides business ad, Margery is
interested in journalism, and work
ed for two years on the Emerald.
She stated that she enjoyed this
work, but feared she “wasn’t cut
out to be a journalist.”
Margery has been very active in
committee and directorate work,
and has an outstanding service rec
ord along this line, as an efficient
and capable worker. She is affil
iated with Alpha Delta Pi.
The most important thing in col
lege life, Margery believes, is to
make a wide circle of acquaint
ances and friends. Not only are
these contacts pleasant during col
lege days, she remarked, but they
are valuable after graduation, and
bring pleasure and satisfaction in
years after school.
Activities are important, she
feels, but she would not advise a
girl to enter into them so strenu
ously that she does not have time
for any study. However she be
lieves they are a more vital part
of a college career than many
people think — as important in
many ways as study.
Margery’s chief hobby, aside
from school activities and study,
is reading. Her favorite author is
Galsworthy, and she also likes
many of the other modern writers.
Margery, quiet, poised, and
charpiing, is a typical college girl
—interested in many things, active,
intelligent, and ambitious. She
hopes to work hard and get into
the kind of job she likes best—
