Auto Mishaps Hit
(Continued front page one)
out from Florida the band truck
overturned, injuring the drummer
with the Morgan crew and ruin
ing most of the instruments.
The next thing that happened,
Porozoff chuckled here, was that
Morgan’s own car burned and
with it went all of Morgan’s
clothing so that the maestro ar
rived in Hollywood with but a
pair of slacks and an old sweater
to his name.
Three of Morgan's featured
musicians landed in hospitals
with the flu and Phyllis Lynne,
lovely vocalist, developed laryn
gitis. . . . But the boys rallied and
the band opened on schedule at
the Palladium, million -dollar
nitery in the film capital.
When Russ Morgan was asked
how he liked all these mishaps, a
few days ago, he remarked, "Bro
ther, when I passed through a
small town in Arizona and saw
myself billed as ‘Russ Morgan and
his famous music in the MORBID
manner,’ I wasn’t a bit sur
The jinx continues though, as
Porozoff’s car wyas wrecked on
the way to Spokane, and one
other car was damaged on the
way from Spokane to Seattle.
Arrangements are now being
made to have Russ Morgan judge
the Whiskerino contest, together
with the aid of local barbers. An
other surprise will be the ap
pearance of the Gamma Phi quar

Annabelle to Feast
On Oysters, Tablets
If Queen Annabelle and her
court of lovely princesses simply
abhor clams and oysters, the fair
coeds will eat ’em anyway and
grin as though the gooey little
creatures are real delicacies. If
they haven’t tasted no-doz tab
lets, they can borrow a few from
Genii Brown and Buck Buchwach,
general promotion chairmen of
Junior weekend, and grimace as
the abominable pellets catch in
their throats.
If they’re all looking for
crowds, they won’t have to, for
today the University of Oregon’s
Junior Weekend crew begins
plowing through their first round
of hectic activity. The group will
be the University’s official dele
gation in Eugene's first navy day
celebration and parade.
Boat Ride
This evening at 5 o’clock Queen
Annabelle and her princesses—
Barbara Neu, Jean Burt, Helen
Angell, and Barbara Todd —
spruce up as gay “sailorettes”
and ride in yacht-like floats
towed along in a nautical parade.
Buck Buchwach undresses for
promotion of the May weekend
and dons a sea-weed sarong. As
King Neptune I, Buchwach will
climb aboard a float, grip Nep
tune’s proverbial three-pronged
spear, and glide along in the pro
cession with all the dignity due
his office.
At noon tomorrow an official
delegation of eight cars wheels
out of Eugene and rolls toward
Mapleton, “Admiral” Chet Good’s
ark trundling along behind. At
Mapleton the group will gorge
itself on clams and oysters for
about an hour.

mony attending all ship christen
ings, wafts up to “Admiral”
Good’s boat poised on the ramp
there and bashes a bottle of milk
off its prow just before the ship
skids down the ways and splash
es into the water.
The crew will remain in Maple
ton for all official functions dur
ing the day, returning to Eugene
and the University only after
they’re thoroughly worn out.
