at 8 o’clock in McArthur court in an attraction free to University
FANTASTIC TOE ...
Dancers to Feature
Unusual Lighting, Beautiful Costumes,
Aid O'Donnell, Limon Dance Program
With Adagio and Acrobatic Flourishes
Like This Rug
Effects of Junior weekend's
“Arabian Nights" theme are al
ready being felt, particularly by
E,/.te Morfitt, weekend lunch
Little Miss Morfitt perched
precariously on a pseudo m’agic
carpet (floor rug from room 52
Zeta hall). Gene Brown, Jim Car
ney, Buck Buchwac-h, and Jack
Saltzman, weekend big wrigs,
were apparently propelling the
carpet through the breeze two
feet or so above terra firma.
While this bizarre outfit posed,
Cameraman George Godfrey went
to work. After the second "shot,"
the magic, geni, and all, suddenly
deserted the carpet, and Miss
Morfitt was sitting on the floor
very unladylike following a rath
er rude jolt.
Dinner Will Honor
A dinner honoring Dr. Ernst
von Brucke will be given at the
Faculty club April 5 at 6 p.m.
Faculty club members are re
quested to make reservations by
calling Mrs. Mon jay (Campus
248) before Thursday noon.
Dr. Brucke, now a member of
the faculty of the Harvard uni
versity medical school, was for
merly professor of psychology at
the University of Innsbruck.
Attractive, vital, original and
perfectly trained, May O'Donnell
and Jose Limon, two of Ameri
ca's outstanding young dancers,
will appear tonight at 8 o’clock
on the stage of McArthur court.
Free to all students with edu
cational activities cards, the pro
gram titled, "Dances on Ameri
can Themes,” is sponsored joint
ly by the women's physical edu
cation department and the edu
cational activities board.
A special feature of the pro
gram is the original background
music furnished by Ray Green,
outstanding young American
composer. Mr. Green has won
many prizes for composition and
has appeared on the concert
stage in both Europe and the
Adagio and acrobatic flourish
es are incorporated into the vari
ous numbers of the dance duo, to
give a more universal appeal.
Unusual lighting effects and
beautiful costumes—including a
hand-painted silk gown worn by
Miss O'Donnell—add to the gen
eral theatrical effect.
Limon comes direct from top
solo dancing parts in such Broad
way plays as ‘‘Keep Off the
Grass,” "As Thousands Cheer,”
and “I’d ’Rather Be Right.” The
teaming of Mr. Limon and Miss
O'Donnell is a recent innovation
and this is their first concert
tour since the merger.
Non-student admission prices
are 75 cents and $1.
The dance team first appeared
together at Mills college in Cali
fornia last year. Their program
is divided into four main sections.

' Wini' Green
Wini Green, Hendricks hall,
isn't sure whether or not it was
an April Fool's day joke, but she
is sure she'll be a pretty busy
person around the Oregon cam
pus during the next year.
It all happened wrhen the inter
dormitory council met and elect
ed Wini secretary-treasurer for
the coming year, though she
wasn't present. Wini didn't
know about this. She was half a
campus away at a meeting of
Oregon’s heads of houses where
she was elected president, the
first independent woman to hold
this office in seven years.

All students in campus activi
ties will be included in a person
nel file, now being completed by
educational activities staff work
According to John Busterud, m
charge of gathering data on per
sons taking part in the activities,
the file is being made to lend
"more efficiency to student ap
pointments," and to place ap
pointments "more on the merit
system." He added that the data
in the file might be used in giv
ing references to graduates.
I'he new system will probably
be completed about April 7, Bus
terud' stated. Each student tak
ing part in one of the ^6 listed
campus activities will be cata
loged, and a permanent staff will
keep the files up to date.
Personnel cards list three
types of activities: publications,
all campus events, and student
administration. Busterud ex
plained that these cards can be
referred to when there is an ap
pointment in the offing.
A consolidation of plans made
by ASUO President Tiger Payne
and George Luoma, assistant
manager of educational activi
ties, the files will be in the ASUO
office in McArthur court.
Although the system is new,
Busterud explained, a student's
activities over his previous years
of school, wrill also be recorded on
Bette Workman, Frances Cox,
and Gloria Difford are now col
lecting data from heads of ac
tivities groups, and later will col
lect information from students
holding minor activities jobs.
