Coed-of- Week Spurns
"Play-world* Activities
A.n activity woman who doesn't believe in too many .activities
is vivacious Janet Morris, who seriously explains this paradoxical
statement with, “On our campus too many people spend too much
time in activities. It's more or less of a play world. I think tljat the
purpose of activities is to teach students to take responsibility and
aieo learn how to deal with people, and how to take hard knocks,
ar,f I think that's the only purpose of activities."
Sense of Humor
.Janet, who is certainly one
on the campus, doesn't look the.
typical, competent, activity-wo
man type at all. She is tall, dark,
and has large blue eyes which re
fle;t an engaging sense of humor.
She is in the Collegiate Who's
.Who, is chairman of the forth
coming Love and Marriage se
ries, has been a Kwama, Phi
Theta, and Amphibian, besides
having been chairman of the
World Student Service fund, and
chairman of the Tag day sale.
Skdng, swimming, fencing, and
basketball are some of the spe
cial likes of this effervescent
spo rtswoman. Although she made
the honor roll last term and has
a grade point average well over
a F, she still manages to find
time to be a bridge fiend.
jn o reeves
Peeves evidently aren’t in Jan

those persons whom nothing par
ticularly seem? to irritate. Her

she likes meeting people so much

We were going to give you a
preview of our significant and
campus-quivering New. Year’s
resolutions — but sadly enough
any exposition of that type would
now be in the nature of a post
mortem. So,—blandly ignoring the
death of those poor frail crea
tures we’ll skip on to a few mis
cellaneous items.
jJ: s': s»t
Item one under “Things That
A muse Us” is the first change* on
the winter term schedule. The
course listed is second-year Jap
anese and the nature of the
change—dropped course. We find
that the omission isn’t the result
of administration prejudice — it
was just that H. J. Noble, asso
ciate history professor, and the
regular instructor of the. course,
has been called to work for Uncle
One wide-eyed coed—observing
the notice, queried. “Well, golly,
hew are we going to train our
fifth columnists?”
Maybe we’re just pettish but
there is one small thing about
this otherwise nice institution
that makes us do a slow burn.
To be more specific it is the
regime in the periodical and ref
erence reading room — where a
student so much as opens his
mouth to whisper “Whattimeis
it?" or “Howaboutadate?” and
several attendants pounce on him,
frowning ferociously and hissing
for silence. And yet all conversa
tions which they—the attendants
—have, are carried on in a low
shout, their little swinging doors
sway back and forth with the
rapidity and general sound effect,
of a small machine-gun and
books, which are returned to the
shelves snap into place with a
resounding crash. Of course there
are other places to study—but
it’s the principle of the thing.

We always get a good laugh
out ol the horrified shriek .hat
the majority of these faultlessly
groomed coeds utter when they
look at their hair in a mirror.
Every lock beautifully in place,
ribbon just right—but they de
velop a mild case of hysteria at
“The curl’s completely out,” or
“Isn’t it just terrible? I can’t do
a thing with it.” The subsequent
renovation usually takes about 30
minutes. At the end of this time
every lock is beautifully in place,
ribbon just right. . . .
The really funny angle is that

While You re Skidding, ~
Plan Spring a la Mode
While you're skidding1 to class on icy sidewalks warm yourself
by planning some smooth spring combinations such as ... .
The newest of the new—are those blue-grey jersey wrap-around
coats that are making a hit in winter resorts. Wear them with a
jersey beret of the same color. . . .
For a shiny finish so you'll star at any prom try a plain color
glazed chintz formal in some Cuban color. Washable chintzes will
be shown for play dresses and bathing suits come the first daffodil.
No, I will not be bitter
When you go—
Only a little tired,
And cold as snow.
No, I will not be bitter
When you turn
Down some grey road
That smells of fern.
How strange to be bitter
And cut my heart
Over an ending
I knew from the start?

Dere Diary: Formal winter
term is being formally opened
this weekend' with two informal
dances. Last night independents
fostered the rally spirit with an
informal sport hop in Gerlinger.
Tonight after the final fray with
Washington State it’s a dance
sponsored by Company A, a rally
theme and a military benefit. Art
Holman and his boys will furnish
the music. Junior and senior mil
itary men will wrear their uni
forms and, according to Carolyn
Holmes, coed dress is informal.
Rally dances this term are sup
plementing the usual program of
house dances and the “big” danc
es of the term. You might watch
for the Senior ball, Dads’ day,
the inevitable Alpha Delta Sigma
hop, Military ball and a round of
miscellaneous events sandwiched
in to keep Webfoot sassiety in
