asked. “Well, let’s see— There’s
one thing that I’m interested ir
mainly—the tea group, and the
music group, and combine the
two, and it seems to me that
things can be just as inspiring
through music. It's always most
ly discussion groups.”
A Phi Theta, she is also a mem
ber of the “Spinster’s club.” Ta
the question, "How about men?”
she countered with a sly twinkle,
“Well, how about them? Nice
people. No comment.” She admit

From a year of Phi Beta presi

over the reigns of the YMCA.
More seriously, she said, “Yes,
I'm a language major. I’m taking
French, and lots of people seem

Easter Sunday is the time to
wear the new spring' hat you've
been saving, to walk to church in
clean, white and tan spectators,
and to pin a flower to the lapel
of your best suit or lightweight
coat. All this, of course, depend
ing upon the "Oregon mist."
It is customary for some fra
ternities to have annual Easter
breakfasts, and if you should be
invited to one of these, dress as
you would it' you were going to
church. Wearing of hats is option
al, however, and is up to you and
your escort.
Radio dances scheduled for
Saturday night call for short
silks, as do theater dates.

fectly proper to wear silks and
heels if one wishes.
