The Coed of the Week
“For manners are not idle but the fruit of loyal nature and
j noble mind.”
This is the inscription on the Gerlinger cup which was awarded
i to Clare Igoe just a year ago last Friday. On that same day she was
j taken into Mortar Board—all in all making it one of the most event
) ful days in her life.
Clare was practically put out of her happy home the other day
when her two brothers returned home to find the Gerlinger cup gone.
They demanded to know where the prized “jug” was, but they were
| appeased when they learned she had relinquished it since it is to be

Oregon Qoeds Rebel Against
Some Unforgivable Sins of Men
Unforgivable sins a man commits, according to University of
Oregon coeds, range from smoking cigars and ogling girls in the
street to talking about a shady past and forgetting the little cour
tesies in life that count.
Rising up in response to the question, “What do you think are
five unforgivable sins in a man?’’, the girls were almost unanimous
in their disapproval of the “Joe College’’ type, petting on first dates,
and drinking excessively. However, surprisingly enough, only three
had any serious objections to dirty . —______
i;uius, uie rest euner naving no
strong objections, or actually pre
ferring them.
Some girls had a difficult time
to see many unforgivable sins in
a man, while others named five
readily and went on from there.
Betty Riesch, blond, blue-eyed
Pi Phi president, declared readily:
“I don’t like chewing tobacco and
I hate cigars. I resent fresh re
marks and actions directed toward
any woman. I also dislike heartily
Joe Colleges and bad English.”
Blanche McClellan, one of the
princesses in Queen Virginia’s
court for Junior weekend, admit
ted reluctantly she couldn’t see
many things wrong with men.
(Perhaps it was because Dick Lit
fin was around): “That’s a hard
question to answer, I think. I
don’t like men to talk too much,
and I don’t like the self-centered
type. I think it’s awful when a
boy thinks he can dance when he
can’t and tries out a lot of fancy
steps for you. As for dirty cords,
I really prefer them, that is, if
they aren’t too dirty.”
Lorraine Larson, sophomore in
arts and letters offered: I don’t
like men who forget courtesies to
elderly people. I hate the gaudy,
noisy, Joe College type, because
there’s nothing to them. I don’t
like the self-centered men or those
that try to show off. I hate chew
ing tobacco. I also dislike boy
to insist upon a girl to smoke or
drink when she doesn’t care to.
Margery Bates, dark- haired
Kappa junior, chosen this year as
the feminine half of the ideal stu
dent couple, contributed: I don’t
like conceit. If .there’s anything I
can’t stand it’s a conceited man. I
don’t like excessive drinking when
on a date and I don’t like over
egotists who are always talking
about the wonderful things they
can do. Furthermore, I don’t care
for the rah rah college type with
a lack of ambition.
Patsy Warren, recent pledge to
Phi Theta Upsilon, junior women’s
advisory board, also had a ready
reply: I think it's a sin when boys
forget that it’s the little things
and courtesies in life that count
The second sinner is the smarty,
and third, I don’t like boys that
make slurring remarks about
girls. Fourth, I dislike boys who
think they are giving you the
break in your life by taking you
out, and fifth, I hate men that
PRETEND they are Hard To Get!
Elisabeth Stetson, AWS presi
dent, said: I don’t like men to, call
up and ask what kind of flowers
you want and then send gardenias,
anyway. I don’t like black cigars
nor dirty cords. I hate men to call
up about 8 o’clock Saturday or
Sunday morning, and I hate men
to spend half the evening talking
to the house mother when you are in.

er thing I hate is after the dance*

Dear Coed and Ed:
Friday I’ll com© out in my new

I am a wealth of personality be- '
