pilot training course are these student pilots. Sue Cunningham was
the first girl to solo, and Jack Hannegan, the first of the men. They

Anyone who wants to work on

about 25 people busy during the
rest of the spring” Bishop de
He emphasized that he wanted
all veteran members of the year

as many of the upper staff ap
pointments wall be made this
“Of course the people that
come first will get the best posi
tions but there wTill be enough
work for all those that really
want to work,” Bishop said.
According to the editor there
W'ill be a quantity of general
work, some research, and the
other customary yearbook duties.
“A special project for the rest
of this term is the compilation of
a style sheet for next year’s use,”
Bishop revealed.
“Among principal positions to
be filled is that of sports editor,
with other important posts also

They’ve never been afraid
while flying, they both like to
ski (“very much’’) and they lead
the feminine and masculine ele
ments of spring term “flying
fifty’’ as to solo efforts. Sue Cun
ningham, first girl soloist, and
Jack Hannegan, who led the en
tire class, agree on many points.
“One of the funniest things the
first time I was up alone was see
ing the instructor’s stick up in
front—just wiggling around by
itself—and then of course the
plane w'as a lot lighter,” volun
teered Hannegan.
It Thrills
“Seems like there is so much
fuss over just soloing—when the
flying is really just starting,”
Sue chimed in modestly. “But

Among various and sundry in
formation garnered from Sue: “I
always wear clam diggers—they
were the only kind of trousers I
could borrow. . . . Have to wear
them because they strap the
parachute around our legs. ... I
think a cross-country flight
would be lots of fun. . . . Wes
Hammond (her instructor) said
the plane looked like a scared
rabbit on my first take-off . . .
and I love to swim.”
According to Jack: “Flying is
really easier than you’d think it
would be. . . . I’m going to give
up law until I get out of the air
corps. ... I sure like the sunsets
in the morning when I fly early
enough. . . . Haven’t been sick
yet. . . . Spins and stalls are
swell — I’m anxious to get in
other acrobatic work. . . . Max

“My girl said it tickled," said Tony Crish of the large black brush
which won the Sophomore Whiskerino. “When it was shaved off, my
chin sure felt light."
With the one day beard Tony displayed, the quality of the top

New Offerings
Of Film Series
Feature Sound
'Hands/ 'Sunrise'
To Show Tuesday
In Chapman Hall
Sound will be featured for the
first time tomorrow in the educa
tional activities board series of
film revival programs in 207
Chapman hall. Two films,
"Hands” and "Sunrise” which are
fourth on the series will be
shown at 2, 4, 6:45, and 8:45 p.m.
“Hands,” directed by Mrs. Stel
la Simon in 1928, the New York
photographer who made the pic
ture independently in Berlin, rep
resents an experiment which she
carried out to discover what could
be achieved by treating the film
as an abstract pattern in time
and space.
In a sense, “Hands” is a com
promise between the purely ab
stract film and the realistic mov
ie with a plot. Personality of the
actors is excluded and only hands
are shown. The music, composed
as an integral part of the film,
was originally scored for pianola.
Executed by the composer as a
piano solo, the accompaniment
has recently been added to the
Second on the program is
“Sunrise,” produced by Fox Films
in 1927. This film is both impres
sive and unequal. Throughout the
film the photography and the
lighting are masterly and the sets
unusually photogenic. The tempo
both of the acting and of the
cutting is well considered and
there is a singularly apt use of

To Hear Chappel
At Banquet Tonight
Bert V. Chappel, department
of finance, Portland, is the speak
er at tonight’s Beta Gamma Sig
ma banquet in the Eugene hotel.
The banquet starts immediately
after the 6 o’clock initiation cer
emonies for Eathel Sutton and
Charles Lundquist.
Mr. Chappel’s last appearance
on the campus was last term
when he spoke at the business
administration school’s student
business conference on civil serv
ice. His topic tonight is “The
Day Is Coming.”
Guest of honor at the dinner
meeting will be Orville Marcellus,
recently named “BA freshman of
the year” by the commerce hon

No Cups
Tony trimmed up his mustache
a bit but he let the rest of it
grow free in the breeze. ,,No, I
didn't try to scratch a match on
it," he smiled.
‘‘It was a bit embarassing at
times,” Tony revealed. "When I
went to church I crept in and
stayed near the back."
His house bi'others, the Betas,
were no small factor in the win
ning of the contest by Tony.
“Sometimes I was tempted to
shave," he said, “but they en
couraged me to keep it."
The brave girl w’ho accompan
ied Tony and his beard to the
Whiskerino was Helen Mullen, a
Chi O. After the whiskers were
shaved off at about 10:30 in the
evening, Tony and Helen were
able to dance in peace. But there
were quite a few dances before
that time.
Though clia m p beard-raiser
among the sophs, Tony is no man
in the thirties. Only 21, he is a
big, brawny fellow who would do
justice to any lumber camp. His
winning beard was dark black
and something to be admired
more than loved.
