Town Trips Banned
Warning of a last chance for
the traditional mortar board ball
on the UO campus was sounded
yesterday at the heads of houses
meeting by Hazel P. Schwering,
dean of women. A new rule
will prohibit individual girls
from taking the boy friend down
town for dinner, according to Al
ice Macduff, assistant dean of
Houses may schedule group din
ncrs at restaurants only if there
is proper chaperonage, according
to the new rule.
Decorations for the women's
ball, will of necessity be sim
ple, said Billie Christensen, pres
ident of Mortar board, since a
high school music festival will
occupy the Igloo until 6 p.m., May
16, date set for the dance.
“We ll probably have a couple
of potted palms for decorations,”
Miss Christensen said, ‘‘but we
feel that people will enjoy tho
dance more at the Igloo evert
without elaborate^' decorations,
than they would in Gerlinger."

‘Hee Hee’ Flunks, Flaunts
* Back in ’31 there was a little Japanese boy running around
the campus, not studying very hard, and flunking psych and
German. Charles Hisao Yoshii wasn’t a very good student and
not many of his professors remember much about him today,
but they’re hearing a lot about him and from him, too.

Military Moms
Get UO Reply
Shu Yasu'j freshman in science, of Japanese ancestry,
has prepared a letter in reply to the resolution submitted by
the Military Service Mothers club to President Roosevelt and
General DeWitt, of the Ninth Corps Area Defense Council.
The first point of the resolution retold the long-disproved
rumor that Japanese pilots at Pearl Harbor wore University
of Oregon rings.
IVo Japanese students
Yasui brought out the point
that there are no Japanese stu
dents at the University at the
present time since the only Japa
nese national on the campus at
the outbreak of the war has long
since been in the custody of the
F.BJ. Students of Japanese an
cestry are American citizens and
could not carry out sabotage and
other subversive activities as the
resolution stated, for their gov
ernment, since they are Amer
He protested the condemnation
of all persons of Japanese ances

could condemn all Catholics for
being pro-axis because of men
like Father Coughlin.’’
Yasui Recalls
Yasui recalled moments of his
life in his home town, Hood River,
Oregon, and many experiences
there that showed that he was an
American, not a foreigner. Yasui
