IFC Will Back
The interfraternity council
will back the Homecoming sign
contest, as it has in previous
years, but will leave the ques
tion of a noise parade up to the
heads of houses, A1 Hunt, secre
tary, announced last night, fol
lowing an IFC meeting.
Attempting to clarify what he
called a “general misunderstand
ing’’ concerning the attitude of
the IFC toward this year’s Home
coming, Hunt said that the coun
cil had never refused to partici
pate in the sign contest, and that
their asking for a $25 expense ac
count from the educational activ
ities department, was a “request,
not a demand.”
ASUO President Lou Torge
son will call a meeting of the
heads of houses, representing
tooth men’s and women’s groups,
C^peek and independent, and refer
the noise parade decision to
them, Hunt said, adding that the
IFC would abide by their deci
. If, however, the heads of hous
es agrees upon a “better idea”
the council will back them on
that, he said.
Hunt' mentioned complaints in
past years from local hospitals,
and from Eugene residents as ob
jections to the noise parade. He
also cited the necessity of houses
going to Portland, often at con
siderable expense, to collect
scrap iron, locomotives, and oth
emnaterials for the parade.

Grace Moore Says Brawn
Overemphasized in US
By JEAN SPEAROW
“There is too much accent on muscle and too little on culture,”
oserved Grace Moore, sunny-haired songstress, as she compared
American young people to the same age-group in South America
where she just finished a highly successful concert tour.
“Young people between twenty and thirty in South America are^
vitally interested in broadening their cultural horizon,” she saidf
“Whenever a new personality appears in the field of art or politics
they are eager to investigate this new addition to their culture
“It seems too bad, but the
young people of the United States
are losing their natural charm.
There is too much wise cracking,
too much slang being slung.” Miss
Moore giggled appreciatively at
her own choice of words, and
then repeated them with obvious
Her dominant personality filled
