Dear Pi Phis,
How come you do me like you do ?
This is the lirst column to appear on the front page of the Em
erald. It'll probably be the last, too.
For nearly a term's absence, we’ve been following Joe Miller’s
poisonous and barbed words with not a little concern. Maybe ho
doesn't care what people think of him, but it's certainly not doing

^ The Gestapo influence again
I raised its Simon Legr.ee whip
Friday and cracked down
with outmoded conventions
when the muscle-bound Order
of the “O,” headed by Kenny
Oliphant, traditions chairman, is
sued its Nero orders for enforce
ment of Junior Weekend tradi
tions. The “whip" of traditions
would be felt by all, Oliphant
promised, and especially by weak
backed frosh who are, quote, “per
fect saps for this stuff.”
Monday morning the NazifiecI
“New Order of the O” men will
begin their campus patrol, put
ting the bee on their unsuspect
ing “offenders.” And in front of
Fenton hall .Monday noon the
crushing paddles of the “New Or
der” men will fall on the back
sides of the “perfect saps.”
Traditions dusted off by Oli
phant are as follows:
1. No walking on the grass.
2. Say hello on “hello walk.”
3. Freshman giris must wear
green ribbons in their hair. 4.
Freshman men must wear tin
pants and rooter’s lids. (Note
frosh emphasis). 5. No smoking
on old campus, just like Ore
gon State. 6. Freshman men
must scrub the University seal.
During the campus luncheon
three additional traditions will be
in order: men may not wear ties
or white shoes and must not
speak to a woman. The “New Or
der” men did not deny that their
own inability in the last line
might have some influence in

Quigley Makes Up
As if women don’t cause enough trouble and take up
3 enough time plastering their own physiognomy with
make-up, they are now venturing into the field of ap
plying the same goo to others. The problem of making
.- up other people will be the chief concern of chubby
little Margorie Quigley, junior in English, who spends most
of her spare hours nowadays not knitting sweaters for the
Red Cross, but making beards for the character roles in “Of
Thee I Sing.”
As director of make-up for the production she will have
approximately 150 people to beautify before the play Satur
day night. She’s lucky at that, though, because the make
ups don’t have to be exact. They are supposed to look sort
of queer to keep in with the idea of the play.
The job that will take the most time will be applying
liquid sun-tan oil to the bodies of the chorus girls. It will
take approximately one-half pint of the stuff for each girl,
and no wonder, what with the weather what it has been
this spring. Incidentally, Miss Quigley dinged the idea of
accepting applications for assistants to help her with her
The toughest make-ups will be those of the foreign am
bassadors, what with their sultry complexi8ns and long
. beards. It probably looked pretty funny when the class of
make-up artists, mostly women, started making those beards.
The proper technique for making beards, it seems, is to cre
ate them on someone else’s face. They probably looked cute
in their little goatees. Miss Quigley, however, rfuses to
model her work in public.

Enlisted Reserve Calls
To Advanced Military
Ed. note: Because of the number of times in the past few months
the military department has been thoroughly griped at the way the
Emerald has run its stories, we decided to deviate from our “inter
pretive” trend and stick to the facts. Besides, it’s more patriotic this

Bird Haven Buzzes
“The swallows have returned to McArthur court and
spring can't be far behind,’’ is the welcome prediction ci'
Bill Kirtley, majordomo of the Igloo.
This year’s arrival of the birds is of particular signifi
cance because they have inspired a movement to obtain font
the campus and Eugene a place in the country’s war program.
These particular winged visitors have for the past fivo
years displayed a. sense of discrimination and wisdom o'<?
conduct that is not evidenced by some of the more famous*
groups of their kind. They don’t arrive at a set. time as it*
motivated by unthinking instinct or habit, but await the dc
parture of the most severe weather, no matter when it comes,
before they show up.
Instead of choosing some place where they would be ex
posed to vagrant spring downpour which even they could noi}
foresee, they select a location where they can fly about in
comfort no matter what the weather.
All this adds up to the conclusion that they are well
qualified to establish a settlement location for their fellow
swallows, and from that deduction has evolved the fol
An evacuation center for the swallows of Capistrano in
the project now under consideration. It is very likely, they
say, that the aforementioned swallows will have difficulty in
establishing their nationality, and therefore must be re
moved from the critical coastal areas.
Kirtley serves as a character witness for the Igloo’n
tenants, saying they are tame, friendly little creatures, ancl
that they keep the huge building fairly well cleared of flics*
and wasps. However, “They have some other habits whicl*
I find hard to condone,’’ he added.
