Charm to Scene
Of Campus Life
We're not running “From Where
I Sit” competition but in our own
quaint way we have observed some
First of all is Dick Gifford. Dick
originally enrolling at our neigh
borhood institution, OSC, came to
Eugene on a Wednesday night of
rush week with some of the tong
boys from Corvallis. As to what
changed his mind, we cannot say,
but he stayed and Friday of rush
week found him with the other 32
i pledges that Sigma Nu started
running their hotel on.
But fame and fortune were to
be Gifford’s. A photographer
wanting a typical freshman stu
| dent selected our friend. So Gif
ford posed as a Joe College with
a rooter’s cap on, the assumed
i smirk on his face, and a pipe
i hanging precariously from one
’ side of his mouth; he posed as a
student, a pledge in the midst of
i house duties, and in all the differ
f ent acts that a freshman goes
! through with, includingt he part
j of a “pigger.”
Don Kennedy brought back from
the sunny southland a frisky wire
haired terrier which answers to
the name of “Prink”, named after
our distinguished Webfoot mentor.
His latest trick, according to the
I Beta boys is to roll over at the
[ command. Keen competition be
tween Kim of Sigma Chi and the
. newcomer is to be expected.
Werner Asendorf, Beta exchange
student from Germany, has suc
ceeded in causing more furor than
a Beta mill race. Two Alpha Phis
were properly presented to him
and on scurrying off to a class
mumbled that they were very glad
to have met him. Instead of the
conventional repetition, they were
startled at the reply of, “thank
you, I’ll see you in my dreams.”
i Doing a prize bit of pledging,
the Sigma Chis might say it was
an accident but we’d like to know
how they got twelve cars.

Mystery for Males
You women, how do you do it?
Take this matter of clothes. Can
you tell me just how in the world
all of you can seem to get together
on just what to wear ?
Take any campus dance, any
number of stories in the Emerald
and placards all over the campus
announce campus clothes. The
poor unsuspecting collitch boy
takes the sign at its face value and
shows up in slacks and a sweater.
But to a woman, all of the gals
are in afternoon dresses and high
heeled shoes—and, I suspect, sneer
ing at the “ill mannered” boys that
don’t know w’hat to wear.
Just the opposite will happen
when the dance is supposed to be
more on the formal side. The poor
boy struggles into a suit, goes to
the dance with a fine mist of per
spiration on his brow — only to
find that the whole tribe of gals is

It is most surprising to the male
element of the college when on
some sunny day the whole campus
blossoms out with a new kind of
dress—what is it, telepathy?
It happened this fall with these
doggone plaid skirts with box
pleats—we just looked up and
there they were—million of ’em.
Where do you get these squirrely
ideas ? Stand in a drugstore on the
day Vogue comes out. Eleven fe
males immediately pounce upon it,
and stand around ohhing and ahh
ing over some outlandish rig that
looks like a beer-keg with fur in
stead of metal hoops. It’s ‘‘smart’’
or “clever” or something likfe that.
But (thank God!) you never ap
pear in them.
Just how did all of you know
that skirts were to be a couple of
inches shorter this fall ? Do you
have dreams? Is it television?
Then this little matter of hair.
Why is it the wenches will get
themselves whipped into pretty
fair shape so that you can recog
nize them. Then, they just can’t
let the old top-piece alone. They
must fuss with it. Curls one day.
Bangs the next. Page boy stuff
the next. Finally the gal ups and
cuts her hair. If there wasn’t a
pair of scissors handly, I’ll bet the
gals would chew their hair off.
Ah nuts—we like you anyway.
Soap JBoudI for
Co-ed Hat Fad
The “Beanie” has taken the fem
inine half of the campus by storm.
All colors of these saucy little hats
adorn the “beans” of our coeds.
According to “Life” many of
the styles in women’s hats this
season had their origin in the cere
monial headdresses of African
tribes. A masculine member of
the faculty was heard to remark
that the designer of the “Beanie”
probably got his idea from the
soup bowl mother used to cut hair
Open to Seniors
For Third Time
Vogue magazine recently an
nounced its third. "Prix de Paris”
a fashion career contest open to
members of the senior classes of
accredited colleges and universi
ties throughout the country.
The first quiz of the contest will
appear in the November 1 issue of
Vogue. To be eligible for a prize,
each entrant must send answers
to this quiz with the entrance
blank to Vogue on or before mid
night of November 20. No later
entries will be accepted.
It is with fear and trembling
that we thrust our knees under
neath our typewriter table and
venture to present to the vast Em
serald reading public another col
umn. We promise you we won’t
try to be funny—bitter experience
has taught us that people don’t as
a rule laugh very loudly at our
jokes anyhow. However, being
strictly feminine we have to have
our say. and so, like Justice Black
and Japan . . . here we are. What
can you do?
Now that the frenzy of fresh
man week Is over and we are once
again living a normal life we blush
with shame at the muny letters
and articles we sent out to Incom
ing freshmen women this summer
telling them what to buy and w'hat
to wear in preparation for a smart
and snappy school year. Imagine
our embarrassment when they ap
peared en masse, looking like they
had just stepped from Vogue. New
hats, fur Croats, dresses that simply
sparkled with style. And we shuf
fled our old saddle oxfords back
and forth, pulled our last year’s
coat tighter around us and our
last year’s hat far down over our
eyes and slunk around self-con
sciously all week. Now we salute
the freshman woman with humble
ness and respect. We’ll gladly take
a lesson on style from her any
While we’re on the subject of
style we’d like to tell everybody
how pleased we are when we took
a look around at the football game
the other day and discovered that
Oregon women are coming down
to earth and wearing sports clothes
to games this year. (At least we
hope it’ll last.) We were getting
considerably fed up with the pa
rade of velvet dresses under fur
coats and topped by startingly for
mal hats that were much in evi
dence last fall. It’s good to see
everyone in saddles and smart
felts shouting at the top of their
lungs, completely oblivious of cos
tume or make up . . . something
that can’t be done in coiffures

We feel that there is a point to
he made about ull this library ac
tivity that has raised such a ruck
us the last week. There’s some
thing shocking about the hallways
of a dignified library looking like
bank night at the local theatres.
We never noticed any congestion
in the hulls last year. People who
would hitherto have screamed in
horror at the thought are among
the first itrrivals every evening
nowadays. There must he a point
to be made. Is it (a) that the
newly built library is more allur
ing than the pleasure palaces
down town? (b) that the women’s
outdoor gym should be made into
a library annex to take care of
the overflow of knowledge seekers
that now stand wearily waiting for
seats in the entrance of the new
building? (c) that all new stu
dents have come to the University
with a noble purpose, und that all
old-hangers on have reformed?
Ves, we feel that definitely there
is a point to be made. We wish we
knew what it was.
