In an attempt to avoid a 10 per

Coeds Go Masculine
Northwestern university coeds at
Chicago rapidly are stealing the
thunder of the N.U. masculine ele
ment. Not content with affecting
plaid shirts and N.U. beer jackets,
they finally have resorted to wear

down to freshmen, all are sporting
the new “calots.” “No matter how
you spell them or what you call
them,” declare irate males in re
ferring to the popular skull caps,
“they’re still freshman caps.”

Barristers to Have

Faculty Will Be Hosts
At Affair October
13; for Men Only
The annual law school “smoker,"
highlight of the fall social season
For-yearling barristers, and big time
fall bv the law school faculty, is
scheduled for October 13.
The “smoker,” sponsored each
fall by the la wschool faculty, is
held to introduce the plebe lawyers
to the more advanced second! and
third year students, and also to
acquaint first year students with
members of their faculty. Each
class presents a skit.
Last year the faculty surprised
even themselves with a farcical
take-off of “Themselves,” i.e. . . .
a typical faculty meeting. What
thev will pull from their law
shelves this year is still a mystery.
Committees organizing skits for
the various classes are: Dave Silven
and George Neuner, third year
class; Mel Rooney and Jim Quinn,
second year-group; and Ken Abra

Hall Completes
Frosh Election,
Meeting Plans
New Set-up Will Try
To Eliminate Party
Vote Wrangling
Final plans were completed yes

tion and election to be held Wed

according to Barney Hall, ASUO
Less Red Tape
In an attempt to do away with
as much of the party vote-wrangl
ing and bloc planning as possible,
the new set-up will have the whole
business completed in one meeting.
In past years, according to Hall,
the party actions have set off some
dangerous and slightly shady fire
works before the time of elections.
Under Hall's plan, membership
cards will admit frosh classmen to
the assembly hall and give each
one ballot. After as many nomina
tions are made from the floor as
the frosh want to run on either
party or independent tickets, the
selection will be held.
Plan Is Reform
The new frosh election plan, put
forth by Hall and approved by
Dean Earl, is the first sweeping
reform in class politics to be
brought about since the spring
term elections.
Hall announced that he will
recommend that the newly organ
ized class take up as its first busi
ness the adoption of a constitution
to enable it to run. Such a docu
ment, the center of much wrangl
ing was formed by the last frosh
class, but was tabled last spring
to be decided upon by this new
class. At present the class is run
ning without any legal standing, as
there is no provision in the ASUO
by-laws to govern any class action.
'Yes, I Was a Nobody
When I went to the game last Saturday, I was just a nobody, I
was suffering from an inferiority complex, and I was afraid to look
people in the eye, but now, at last I’m a big shot.
Self consciously I slunk into the stadium last Saturday afternoon
and took an unobtrusive seat in the last row. Little did I realize the
gift that fate wo’uld throw my way. Little did I know then, how my
popularity would increase.
The game stopped after the first
thirty minutes of play, and because
I was feeling so self conscious, I
decided to get up and slink out
before the others, but just as I
passed the Oregon cheer section, I
noticed something that set my
heart afluteer. Two students
in white sweaters were sit
