Junior Weekend Garb
Coeds to Go Oriental
Colorfully carrying out the “Arabian Nights” theme will be the
campus coed’s uniform Junior Weekend costume, which will consist
of a bright peasant skirt with a contrasting sash, a full-sleeved blouse,
and perhaps gay costume jewelry to suggest an Oriental atmosphere.
The Junior Weekend court will have two official outfits, an informal
one for daytime wear and more formal attire for evening. Dressed
in true Arabian style will be the
prime minister, escorts, and other
important male members of the
court, whose garb will out-sultan
any Oriental potentate, Indian
rajah, or Persian shah.
Phi Theta Upsilon, junior wo
men’s service honorary, in charge
of the uniform dress, will visit
all houses Friday and Saturday
noons to explain the tradition and
emphasize the importance of con
forming to it.
Members of the traditions com
mittee in charge of tradition en
forcement and renew'al are Mary
Schedler and Elliot Wilson, co
chairmen, Boyd Lee, John
Schreiner, and Ben Wohler.
A field trip to Mary’s peak,
near Corvallis, is planned for the
general geology class Sunday.
The group will leave at 8:30 Sun
day and return about 5 p.m.
Anyone interested is invited to
go on the trip, but each must ar
range for his own transportation.
Each student will need a lunch
and a pair of rough shoes for
the excursion.

Weekend court, Stitzer only
“Huh!” he scoffed. “The good
