Picnic Rules—By PDQ
J^OMEIIOW or oilier, this evenin'", we feel
in our bones that another excellent week
end is approaching. Even though our prowess
ns a weather prophet has not been scientific
ally tested, it will be safe to venture that in
the next month a number of very perfect
picnic weekends will present themselves to
Ihe Oregon campus.
Speaking of picnics, two news stories in
yesterday’s Emerald come to mind. One head
line read, “Trips to Coast, Picnics Cause Grief
Next Day.” The other said a bit facetiously,
“Weekend Picknickers Meet in PO Infirmary
' Next Day.”
Although it has never been our nature to
be overly timid, we should like to pass a
few words of warning to would-be Oregon
picnickers. First of all they should remember
that the great outdoors is a place for hardy
individuals. Numerous pitfalls await the un
wary child of the city who ventures into the
land of farmers and fences, poison oak and
posies, skunks and swimming holes, bulls and
barbed wire.
* * *
J^ f<‘W suggest ions for those who feel Hie
eiill of (lie wild i11 i11f be apropos at
lliis poinf. In Ihe lirsf place brush up on the
laws of trespass, poaching, ole. Farmers are
sometimes unsympathetic about wandering
college students who carelessly cross their
fences at the wrong places. In the second
place don 1 take the dog along unless lie is so
well behaved l hat lie will “heel ’’at the slight
est command.
Jo those who are allergic, to poison oak
and other flowers we have little to suggest,
unless it be that they audit botany classes
* until they can identify the prolific flora which
send them home swollen, smarting, or sneez
Picnickers who have contacted skunks
always tell us that the best rule is to return
hv a roundabout way, bury your clothes 100
feet from the house, and take tar soap baths
every half hour until the smell diminishes.
Ihe cardinal rule to observe about swim
ming holes is “Never jump into a strange
In spite of all the propaganda about Ferdi
nand, “the bull with the delicate ego,” we
would point out that there are many yet re

acquired his delicate sensitivities.

Well, if we at Oregon didn’t have our
national basketball championship we might
tiy, at that. But Oregon, with two national
titles in the course of a month, isn’t par
ticularly interested. If any Oregon student
wants to gobble goldfish, devour angleworms
or bite the heads off live snakes, even rattlers
it’s all right. But he’ll have to enter competi

more national champs just at present._P.F.
Round *n* About
Always used to think I'd get married someday
but . . . well, I don't know now. After three weeks
of batching . . . you’ll understand better when I
outiine a typical day's program. The alarm clock
starts ringing about six. Bob shows no signs of
life (he's a good actor) so I reach out of bed and
shut the thing off. Then it.Is back under the
covers. Sometime between the hours of eight and
nine the sun breaks Into the room most annoyingly.
Hard on the eyes, you know. So we turn over on
our backs away from the stuff.
Around noon I feel it’s breakfast time so I get
up and start the fire. Then it’s up to the corner
grocery for a quart of milk. T come back and set
the table, then yell at Bob, “Hey, squirt! Soup's
“What . . . soup again?” and Bob slowly pulls
the blankets up higher around his neck.
I say, “We’ve got some canned beans too!”
That does it. Bob is up in a flash, into his
clothes and yelling, “What are we waiting for?
Let’s go out and eat.”
“Go out? But, Bob, the beans arc on the
“I know. Let’s go out and get something to
Well, we consume llie beans, milk, and bread
and Bob rushes off to his 1 o’clock at the I*i I*hi
house . . . maybe it’s the Alpha l’hi . . . can't keep
up with the guy . . . while I proceed to dump our
two dishes, two spoons, and glasses in the sink.
(We have a dishwashing party once a month . . .
come on over!) Well, then I get to looking around.
The place looks kind of messy. Looks nice outside
though, so I go outside.
* * *
Yep, it’s great to be batching. Bob’s a regular,
too. Always willing to lend a helping hand . . .
to my neckties, shirts, or what-have-I. Will even
take a fellow’s girl off his hands . . . doesn’t even
bother me with little details such as telling me
he’s going to. Great-big-old Bob! All seriousness
aside, batching is fun. And a fellow learns things.
Actually fried a steak the other night . . . ham
burger steak . . . but it sure was good! ...Gotta
say that, you see, it was my turn to cook!
Yesterday I tried my hand at umpiring: a base
ball game. And let me tell you something:. If
you want a sure-fire way to me populur, just he
roine an umpire. I’d yell “strike” and fifty others
would simultaneously yell “You’re crazy!” So I’d
rail the next one a “ball” and my fifty admirers
would emit various gurgling noises from their
throats that sounded suspiciously like, “Throw him
out! It was a strike. Kiglit over!”
Then I’d rail a fellow “out” on base and the
pitcher and the infield, being closer than the
runner's teammates, would close in on me with,
“He was safe a mile!” They were right on top of
me so what could 1 do hut say, “Okay, you’re
safe.” Think Hobby would really like to have me
umpire games for him . . . here on the home dia
mond. What am I offered?

That tennis court dance went over pretty well
yesterday afternoon. I don’t imagine anyone had
a good time ... my roommate had something to do
with the dance . . . but still it was a success,
financially. And these “mixers” should become
more popular each week. I'm all for them
they give a bachelor a chance.
Well, really, I can’t think of a thing to say
today. Perhaps I’d better just forget this column
idea . . . HEY! Please not so much enthusiasm'
After all!
Side Show ...
The same eprsons who at e curious to know who
will be ahead of the game when the Spanish people
have finally settled down to the task of attempt
ing to lead normal lives once again are also won
doting who will be pulling' in the chips when the
last chapter is written about Japan's “incident”
in China. Despite the list of many battles won
by Japanese soldiers, considerable opinion in this
country holds that the persons eventually to bask
in the glory of triumph will not be those residing
in the vicinity of Tokyo.
Such a belief seems to rest on the theory that
Japan will wear out before China, and some such
policy seems to be the one being currently prac
ticed by General Chiang Kai Shek. The number
oi pitched battles in China have been few recently,
and it can't be because the Japanese have con
quered all there is to bo taken. It appears that
China has decided to sit back and wage a bit of
guerilla warfare in the hope that Japan will be led
to the waste of considerable money and energy
in the attempt to rebuild that which they have
already destroyed with their guns.
Almost unquestionably the Chinese would be :
pleased and abetted in their schemes if a general
world conflict were to break loose. Another world ;
war couldn't possibly bring the Chinese to a much
worse state of misery, and they might stand to
gain, because it would bo their one big oppor
tunity to cast off the yoke of Nippon. It would be
an application in the Orient of the ancient adage I
about England's troubles being Ireland's oppor
tunities. General warfare would almost certainly
throw Japan upon her own industry and resources
for the production of her goods for the sustenance
of both civil life and military operations.
It is doubtful whether the islands could pro
duce enough for those purposes, as is indicated
by the amount they have to import from America.
War would certainly cut off this source, and their
fascist allies are in no position to lend aid of an
economic nature.
» » *
General war would also greatly widen Japan’s
battle front, since she is almost certain to suffer
attack from Russia.
AH in all, it looks like a match between the
proverbial Chinese patience and the modern ways
of the West which Japan has adopted in so definite !
a manner. 1

“It’s Refreshing to Let up_Light up
a mild, good-tasting Camel”
READ\ ? A television broadcast is about
to begin. Everyone feels excitement in
the air. Philco engineer Richard E.
Waggener knows exactly what to do. lie
passes Camels, takes one himself... a
mild, good-tasting Camel! “It's grand for
one s poise to let up—light up a Camel.”
PHOTO OF Waggoner directing
Katharine Aldridge and Shane Kelly.
Dick is one of many experts in tele
vision who find Camel’s mildness
just right for steady smoking. Let
up—light up a Camel, the cigarette
of costlier tobaccos.
RECEI\ IXG the show with a home set:
Mrs. Dorothy Temple, who runs a home,
has a job too. She is enjoying a cigarette—a
Camel— for, like so many women, she finds
a delicate fragrance in Camels that is very
appealing. “Camels taste so good,” she
says."'l hey do have a wonderful mildness.”
PATION: Dick finds a spare
moment to enjoy a Camel.
Camels are quite different,”
lie says, “mild, full-flavored.
I smoke all I want, and they
never jangle my nerves.”
COLUMBIA STUDENT, John C. Wright, Jr., class of ’39, speaks
for many a college man when he says: “Camels are what I call a real
cheerful smoke. 1 hey have a rich, ripe taste that I like, and Camels
certainly are mild! Yes, Camels sure set me right. I don't wonder
that people say: ‘I'd walk a mile for a Camel!’ I would-any time.”
