Watch Closely, Judges Beauty Rules Today By JOHNNY KAHANANUI They should be blind, married, and exceedingly fond of their wives—those connoisseurs of fe male charms who’ll select a Jun ior Weekend queen today from the nine remaining aspirants. Then they wouldn’t be besieged with illusions and could make the only intelligent decision—all nine for Junior Weekend queen. Quite a regal assemblage of feminine pulchritude — Barbara Neu, Barbara Todd, Jean Burt, Eleanor Sederstrom, Annabelle Dow, Dorothy Wheeler, Wini Green, Isolde Eichenlaub, and Helen Angell. And if anyone is doggedly certain HE can choose THE ONE, he’s an abominable egoist. Every one of the nine coyly admitted mild surprise at being chosen from the original bevy of 21, and all were thrilled, despite subdued attempts at suppression, as they lounged about the Uni versity news bureau last Monday night waiting to be photo graphed. Annabelle Dow’s fathomless velvet eyes twinkled for an in stant before she murmured, “I still can't believe I got this far.” Jean Burt, wisps of golden hair fluffed out in an alluring disar ray, looked like a dream, and “felt” like she was “in a dream.” In between being coaxed by Promotion Chairman Buck Buch wach to be less Victorian in dis playing her shapely, silk-sheathed calves for the camera, Barbara Neu managed to chime in with, “I still can't believe this is happen ing to me!” Helen Angell, titian locks shim mering under the flood lamp, turned on a disarming smile which left no doubt that she real ly was, as she put it, “very hap py.” Wini Green, waxing regal in a snug-fitting blouse: "This is one of those things that only happens once.” Vivacious Isolde Eichenlaub drifted about good enough for any Tristran, and "thrilled about the whole thing.” Dorothy Wheel er, dazzlingly exotic acquired a demure demeanor for an instant, then effervesced with, "Golly, I can’t explain exactly how I feel!” Barbara Todd hovered between the ultimate in glamour and un bridled gaiety. and "couldn't, for the life of me” really express how she felt about being one of the nine. Eleanor Sederstrom, beaming like Miss Happiness her self, was "awfully glad” she “got to be one of the nine finalists.” Now comes the ticklish job, choosing one of the nine to be 1941's Junior Weekend queen and also choosing her court. Bug Bungalow Becomes Ward For 'Mothers' Becoming bored with the “Isolation” sign on the door Thursday, occupants of Ward 3 trundled out a new sign and hung it up. Woid spread through the bug bailiwick like wildfire. People began to drop around to in quire: “How are the little mothers today?” The new sign read: “MA TERNITY WARD.” The present roster includes Olivia Dysinger, Mary Word, Marjorie Taylor, Barbara Bry ant, Elizabeth Hughes, Agnes Barry, Ruth Eckhardt, Mary Mercier, Paul Morris, Edgar Blumenthal, Clinton Childs, and Marge “Dupe” Dibble. Sour Grapes No. 12 Crowds of rushees will be down To U of O come Saturday, And stay here over Easter too, Or so the publicizers say. ’Twould be nice could they all meet, And then should sally forth, Perhaps to play a bit of bridge, If they can find a fourth. —J.W.S.

Templeton, who will appear in McArthur court next Tuesday evening, finds many social situa tions which, have to be dealt with firmly. For instance there is the classic story’ of the Chicago ma tron who invited the blind aitist to tea—and then insisted, quite violently, that he play a. few num bers for the assembled guests. After demurring a few times, Templeton assented — but with mental reservations. Came the great momett tho room was silent—all waited witti indrawn breaths for the music to commence. What they didn't wait for or expect was the seiies of discordant notes which issued from the piano. Evidently thu instrument hadn't been tuned for years. 0 Very gently and politely, Tem pleton rose—remarked he .ould not perform on such an ir.stru? ment—and left the room. The matron, later: "I can't un derstand it—I had the piano tuned expressly for the occasion." Templeton, later: “I just hit the wrong notes at the right time. I hope her face is red."
