Good Taste Misplaced
(Continued from patjc six)
The concerts in the browsing
room seems a step in the gen
eral direction of Deems Taylor’s
definition of the ideal way to
hear music. He wants large, com
fortable chairs set a considerable
distance apart, a beautifully-dec
orated room, and plenty of equip
ment for smoking and drink, very
handy. And, of course, good mu
sic, well-played. The b.room plan
is more practical, somehow, be
cause any apparatus and cigar
ettes are bound to distract from
the music. . . .

to nab the sphere and close the
gap. Oregon responded by taking
the ball out of bounds and toying
with it much to the consternation
of the clawing bearcat.
Kirsch Cans Foul
With some 20 seconds left, Cap

one of those fouls, by flicking
through a free toss.
Oregon’s attack-pattern was
broken up many times when Hob

to give his entire squad action.

Theta Chis
Pick Queen
“Sweetheart of the Theta Chi
Freshmen” is the honor to be be
stowed on some lucky girl Friday
night. The sweetheart will be
picked from the dates the fresh
men bring to the dinner and radio
dance. According to Jack Gibson,
freshman prexy, a large corsage
will be awarded to the girl who,
in the opinion of the five upper
class judges, is blessed with the
greatest amount of pulchritude.
During intermission she will be
presented to the guests, and will
go through ceremonies prescribed
to become the sweetheart. Only
freshmen and pledges will bring
dates to the dinner, but beginning
at 9 all house members will dance
to the music of the “Five Jacks,”
a group composed of fellows in
the house.

Tunisia, but were thrown back
after suffering considerable loss
es. Bad weather has held fighting
in this area to a small scale in
most cases although a Fighting
French column moving toward
the Mediterranean from Lake
Chac has tangled with Axis
troops near the coast. Should the
column succeed in reaching the
sea Rommel will find his
way into Tunisia seriously im
peded, and any stand he might
make against the eighth army
approaching from the east would
be most uncomfortable with the
French at his rear.
in the racmc
Attention has been called to
the Pacific by an Australian
spokesman's statement that a
huge Jap naval force is on the
move. The source reports that
this new contingent is larger
than any yet amassed by the Nip
ponese and that it is moving in
the direction of the southwest
Pacific islands, the Solomons,
New Guinea, possibly even Aus
tralia. The force is reportedly
moving very cautiously and is
widely dispersed to avoid the type
of disaster dealt them previously
by our navy and the air force.
With the Russians on the ram
page, action in North Africa only
awaiting more favorable weath

gill and Micki Mitchell announc
ing theirs recently. She com
mented, “I think the most unique
way of announcing an engage
ment . . . and this is the way I
plan to do it if I’m ever engaged
... is to ring the fire bell in
the middle of the night and give
everyone little firemen’s hats.”
The war marriage problem
then came up, and M.A. com
mented emphatically, "I don't
approve of them at all . . . you
have so little time together.”
About Hannah
When she first came to school,
she thought Eugene was "much
too small,” having lived in Chi
cago, Dallas, and Houston, Texas,
not counting Portland. “Then I
bought my Model T and began to
enjoy life. That was Hannah . . .
I don’t know where she is now.”
She added that it was “wicked
fallacy . . . pure malicious fal
lacy” that Hannah ever had to
be pushed, because “She had a
self-starter that worked. We had
to crank it sometimes, though.”
Working down at the Oregon
Lumber Sales, where “I do bill
ing, filing, and am a general pack
of-all-tracses,” M.A. thinks it’s!
wonderful. “I got a $10 bonus for
Christmas, and I hadn’t been
working there very long, either.”
She hates housework.

screwing up her face, “Ugh.”
“Hot in here, isn’t it?” she
said, moving her feet quickly
from the top of the radiator.
“My courses through school
are absolutely the wierdest jum
ble you’ve ever seen . . . pre-law,
math, French, music, drama . . .
and I don’t know what all.”
Next Year
Next year's Panhellenic presi
dent “is going to have a very dif
ficult problem to face,” in M.A.'s
opinion. She believes that there’s
going to be a complete reorgani
zation of housing next year, with
no personnel for houses, not so
many upperclassmen, lots of
freshman girls, and, of course, no
