We think that almost all men
and women have somewhat of a
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde vein
deep down inside. Witness the
change that most people go
through when they climb into the
driver’s seat of an automobile.
People who usually are polite and
ever, tempered seem automati
cally to be transformed into bad
mannered, ill-tempered beasts
when they get a steering wheel
in their hands.
Why? Traffic safety expert.?
certainly would like to know. The
transformation that comes over
men and women when they wrap
their fingers around a steering
wheel would majke an excellent
study for a psephologist . . . the
results would be interesting.

Perched atop the back of a
chair, Oregon’s petite campus so
cial chairman, Carolyn Holmes,
aired her views on AWS's forth
coming Coed Capers.
While puzzled coeds tear their
hair and chew their respective
fingernails in desperation of
what to wear at the Capers, Car
olyn, calm as usual, suggested
the following concoctions:
“Since women are forever com
plaining about working their fin
gers to the bone and leading a
dog’s life, why not come as a
bone?’’ she began.
“If you don’t like that idea,
how about the diet angle?” she
suggested. “Wouldn’t the average
coed look cute dressed as a
grapefruit, an omelet, or a plate
of lamb chops?”
“One can also talk sports and
politics without the fear of being
squelched by a knowing male,”
she added. (That should make
lots of people happy.)
“This is strictly a women’s
party,” said Carolyn emphatical
ly. “Now that we have a chance
to express our views, let’s really
“let our hair down” and make
the fellows realize “that we can
have fun without them.” (At
least for one evening.)
