Inures Dynamic Yell King
By RUTH VAN BUSKIRK
Pushing his| skull cap up from over his eyes, Ted Loud,
freshman yell king, prepared himself for the ordeal of an in
Best known as the originator of the swing yells, Ted ex
plains their origin thus: “I read in the Emerald one day that I
was to present two yells that night so I got busy and worked
Loud was yell king his junior
year at Columbia prep in Port
land and last year at University
hiigT. Although a two-year letter
raf in high school football, he
maintains modestly, “I tried ev
ery sport under the sun, but they
all required training—so I took
up yell leading.”
His most unexpected compli
ment came during a high school
basketball tournament during
which he had been leading yells
for Columbia prep. Three coaches
voted for him to be on the all
state basketball team. This led to
his being chosen all-state yell
leader—the first time such an
honor had been bestowed. His
originality, pep, and general ex
plosive enthusiasm have all made
Ted Loud the yell king he is.
His favorite expression, “ter
rific,” he applies to the coopera

“I’ve never seen anything
like it anywhere, either while
leading yells myself or watching
other groups,” he stated seriously.
A major in mechanical engin
eering, Ted's ambition is to build
a highway through the jungles of
South America — “If they want
one,” he added with a laugh.
“I’m not going to get married
until I'm 35 and then I’ll be a cat
tle rancher in South America. I
don't know what there is about
South America I like, but I guess

Promising two new harmony
yells for the first home played
basketball games, Ted directed,
‘‘Be sure to be ready for these
yells, gang, so we can put them
over big!” With this he pulled his
hat back over his eyes and sighed,
‘‘Now I can be modest again!”

Youth’s Peace Ideals
“The Peace Aims of Young
America” is the topic chosen by
the Youth Committee for Democ
racy for their essay contest. “The
essay should attempt to present
America’s role in the post war
world; it should face clearly aud
realistically the domestic and in
ternational problems that will
arise after the war,” stated Vir
ginia Clark, acting national sec
retary of the Youth Committee.
Any person, in college or out,
between the ages of 16 and 25, is

is not one to gaze calmly on
sham. For instance, an Oregon
ian journalist, in a magazine sec

commented, “Let a hapless press
agent send a “puff” story to the
Roseburg News-Review, and he
could expect to receive by return
mail a caustic letter from the
editor (Ellsworth) pointing out
any errors of fact, taste or punc

The brilliant pre-med student
has his own personal ideas as to
the outcome of the war.
“Of course the Allies will win,”
he said. “The Filipinos will fight
with them until they do.”
He thinks the magnificent
stand made in the Philippines
shows this. It is his own personal
belief that the Filipinos would
not have resisted at all, if they
had not been confident of Amer
ican reinforcements. Despite the
fact that this was impossible, he
is certain that the Filipinos are
still carrying on active guerilla
warfare against the Japanese.
“They wouldn’t give up with
out a struggle,” he said proudly.
Since Pearl Harbor, Ernest
hasn’t heard from any of his rel
atives or friends at home. It is his
ultimate aim to finish his medi
cal training and return to the
Philippines to help his fellow
countrymen. “They’re going to
need aid,” he said.
