and actually read every poem in the lit book. I used to sit there
sac* gaze into her soft blue eyes . . . my Aunt Elsie had a cow
once with eyes like that—so expressive, you know. Pet (the
cor?-/) had darker lashes through, and she didn’t use Maybel
tiae either (I think).
was it Barer
Of course then. Pet didn't really
sho w too much in a bathing suit,
especially the two piece kind with
the bare midriff. But sh'e had the
most beautiful eyes.
Or would you rather talk about
. Well, this Theta and I had
so mething in common. We were
both flunking at mid-term. She
was flunking because of a big
fro/; man, and I was flunking be
cause of her blue eyes, but of
course she didn't know about
I was really getting to be a sad

I would drink cherry cokes toy

eyes just seemed to haunt me.
Used to, I mean.
But not any more. She’s wear

I. -t me t >'d you about my dream,
I ,vas sleeping along- very peace
ful;/ the other night when sud
dc/iJy I was back in the Forest
Set-vice, standing beside the roar
ing' McKenzie River. In fact, I al
most fell in.
But just then down the bank
came a swarm of blue beavers.
Imagine my surprise. “Gee,” I
thought, “if I could just get ahold
of one of those blue beavers I’ll
bet his pelt will bring a lot of
dough, I bet.”
So I grabbed the dynamite fuse
beside me and fixed it to the huge
box of dynamite beside me.
And then . . . WHAM . . .
And there I was in the lunch
counter, and the girl who came to
wait on me-? Oh- quit guessing,
you don’t know.
It was Lana Turner.
So what did I say?
“What’s your phone number?”
“What time do you get off to

So she went behind the counter
and kept putting ice cream into
the mixer and milk and several
gallons of flavoring.
But when she came back and
looked at me with that old wolfess
gleam in her eye, what did I say?
“That's a pretty small milk
shake," I said.

3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, 1943
Annual showing of the Dorland
Robinson memorial exhibition is
now open to the public at the
Little Art gallery at the school
of architecture and allied arts.

Robinson, of Jacksonville, gave
a portion of her work to the
school as a memorial collection
to be shown once a year.
Mediums included are oil, wa
ter color, and pastel. Among the
subject matter are still life stud

The 60-yard free style event
that will be swum by Chuck Nel
son is an event that Chuck will
try to cut down the time on to
morrow, and as a result break
the existing' record. The time for
this particular event -is an even
30 seconds, and in time trials
Chuck has come very close to
this time. He has never actually
broken it, but has come so close
that Coach Mike Hoyrnan be
lieves that there is a very good
possibility of his breaking it.
Robinson Record Holder
The Northwest record in the
440 freestyle event is held by
Robinson of last year’s swimming
team, with a time of 5:06. Rob
inson set this new record in last
year's Northwest championships.
Last year Dick Smith pushed
Robinson into breaking his rec
ord, being a mere second behind
him in that meet. Smith at the
time did break the existing ree,
ord, but was beaten by his team
mate Robinson with a second bet
Dick in recent time trials has
put the time down below this
5:06 mark, but this time was un
official. At tomorrow’s meet
then. Coach Mike Hoyrnan ex
pects new records from his boys,
and undoubtedly will get them.
Coach Hoyrnan is really mak
ing the boys work out in antici
pation of the meet with the Uni
versity of Washington which is
scheduled for February 20. This
Washington meet will be one of
the tougher ones of the season,
and will require much more ef

boys than the meets that they
