Unique in many respects is this group of melody men—the Order of the ‘O' “glee” club. This organ
ization incorporates the voices of Oregon athletes who have earned letters in major sports, and turns
them into a well blended two-part harmony. Pictured here rehearsing “You Are My Sunshine,” the
singers sang “I was Seeing Nellie Home” to the photographer as an encore. In the picture are, left
to right, Len Isberg, Jim Marnie, Morris Jackson, Roy Dyer, Jim Rathbun, Bill “Whizzer” White, Pete
Igoe, Tommy Roblin, Bill Regner, Kerman Storli, Stuart Nelson, Curtis Mecham, and Buck Berry.

A battle of musical notes—
instead of a gridiron clash—will
be the big feature of the Order
of the O Lemon Squeeze Satur
day night in McArthur court.
Each house will be given three
“innings” to win the title of
“champ” of campus warblers.
“Dutch” Rohwer, president of
Interfraternity council, and Janet
Goresky, president of Panhellenic,
will present the silver trophies to
the men and women’s organiza

tape” first in the judges opinion
Competing “teams” to present
their trio of songs are, for the
men: Delta Tau Delta, Phi Delta
Phi, Sigma Nu; for the women:
Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta,
and Pi Beta Phi.
As another attraction to the
dance, Ray Dickson and his or
chestra will introduce for the
first time, their new girl vocalist,
Jean Morrison. Miss Morrison has
appeared before the “mike” at
other campus functions, as well
as professionally on the radio and
Portland bands.

Fete Queen, '41 Model,
Hails From Lei-Land
Out of the near east of yester
day, with its profound awe of
the mystic, with its dazzling opu
lence and ornate splendor, came
the theme of the University of
Oregon’s 1941 Junior Weekend—
“The Arabian Nights." From Ha
waii, “the loveliest fleet of is
lands 'anchored in any ocean,’’
some 3,000 miles from Eugene
across surging expanses of blue
Pacific came a dazzlingly beauti
ful girl, with brown silken tresses
and fathomless walnut eyes to
rule over an Oregon campus gone
Arabian during Junior Weekend
—Annabelle Dow . . . Queen An
nabels I.
When the S.S. Lurline weighed
anchor and slowly drifted out of
Honolulu harbor this fall, Miss
Dow buried her face in a myriad
of leis, tears Of sorrow trickling
over dark eyelashes, fond fare
wells and strains of “Aloha Oe’’
ringing in her ears.
She didn't know then that one
day those tears would he more
than compensated for, that among
other things, she would be No. 1
personage on the campus during
the University’s most celebrated
Born in Kahuku, on the Island
of Oahu, 20 years ago, the 5 feet
6 inch queen is a regal portrait
of languid tropical beauty on
which the throbbing vivacity of
the Pacific Northwest has made
an appreciable etch, all this on
120 pounds of cultured feminin
“Gee! Gee whiz! Gee!” That's
all Miss Dow could muster when
