Betty> Joe Flustered
By Unfamiliar Attention
“What’ll I say, Mom?” said
“Joe College,” making a grab
for the telephone in the newsroom
of the Emerald offices. Such was
the opening of the interview with
Betty Kincaid and Bill Lyons,
chosen Betty Coed and Joe Col
lege, at the Sophomore Whisker
ino Saturday night.
■f “Seriously, though,” said Bill,
“I was surprised when they an
nounced the choice for Joe Col
lege, because nothing like this
has ever happened to me before.”
“Nor to me,” chimed in Betty.
“I had ‘butterflies’ in my stom
ach when I got up on the plat
form and I know I jumped when
they took pictures.”
Both “Betty” and “Joe” are ac
tive on the campus.
Betty is a member of Kwama,
and is president of the sopho
more commission of the YWCA,
while Bill spends part of his time

Be-Whiskered Winner
Retires Shavina Mua
Fame was bestowed upon Bob
Gray Saturday night, when he
was chosen out of a wide field of
contestants, as the sophomore
with the best growth of whiskers.
After narrowing the crown-seek
ers to two, Warren Charleston
and Gray, Dean Onthank, Keith
Fennell, and Ken Baker, the offi
cial judges, awarded the prize of
a shaving mug to Gray.
Bob says he believes that the
contest is a very good idea. “I’m
sorry it's over,” he said, “in spite
of the fact that my beard was
accompanied by considerable
itching, and I was afraid to light
a cigarette for fear that it would
go up in smoke.”
Shaving Mug
When asked w;hat he plans to
do with the shaving mug, Bob di
vulged the secret that he doesn’t
plan to use it in the very near
future, so it has been relegated
to the house trophy case.
Bob says that there are a few
disadvantages in having sucli
fame given one, especially be
cause of nicknames that it en
courages fraternity brothers to
give him.
Started Late
"I really think that Tony
Crish had a little better beard
than mine.” Bob confessed. “I
might have done better if I had
started on the opening date of the
When his now clean-shaven
face was mentioned, Bob said:
‘‘I owe it all to my electric razor.”
