"Carry on ’ A WS Aim
Says Art-Major Miki
Looking as though just in from a leisurely round of tennis
in her white sweater and shorts, but in reality just off the Alpha
Chi Omega sun porch, nerv AWS prexy Marilyn Campbell re
laxed in a chair before her desk and gazed at sandal-shod feet.
About AWS affairs next year, “Micki" remarked slowly. “I
haven’t formulated any definite plans. Since next year is so
uncertain it's kind of hard to
make plans, hut we’ll carry on
as itest vve can.”
With a charcoal smudge on one
cheek, she quite unnecessarily
revealed a tendency toward the
art school and being chairman of
decoration committees for “lots
of thing's,” besides being a mem
ber of Phi Theta, Gamma Alpha
Chi, advertising' honorary, and
past-secretary of AWS.
After a comment about a ski
ing picture plastered on her clos
et door, and another near her
dressing table, Micki grinned,
“Yes, I love to ski . . . Sun Val
ley . . . Mount Hood . . . Timber
line is my favorite. It has better
rmi.3 . . . I've heard . . . I’ve never
been to Sun Valley.”
She added, “It’s harder to go
skiing uhiv, with transportation
th: way St is, so I'm concentrat
ing on tennis , . . Besides, you
don't get sc nvanv Sprained an
Another picture on her'dress
ing tab!? was of "a good friend
of mine . . . The best picture in
‘■My canvases?” She puzzled
for a moment, ‘‘Oh. they’re in
th- closet. Nobody'' appreciates
them. Isn’t that sad?”
Various and Sundry
Concerning an object hanging
on the wall ... a cork helmet
adorned with a flag, toy mouse,
lei, and some brownish hair,
Micki explained, “My brother
was down in South America . . .
Colombia . . . for two years, and
he brought back lots of fascin
ating tales. That's his hat. My
roommate and I fix it up and tell
a big story about it. Anything I
don't know what to do with I
hang on the hat."
“No," she said flatly, in an
swer to a question about late
hours, “I don't go to bed early
. , . too much going on. Besides,
the freshmen cut up too much."
From the Middle West, Lincoln,
Nebraska, until she was twelve,
Portlander Micki said, “People
have accused me of having a mid
western twang ... of using mid
dle-eastern expressions." She
then told of going on a trip by
herself through Mexico, Texas,
the midwest, and California and
coming back with an odd con
glomeration of accents.
Jhat she doesn't mind acquir
ing accents, was emphasized by
her revelation that “When I first
get out of school I’d like to trav
el .. . go down to South America
... go down and work or some
tiling . . . and after I have a ca
reer, get married.”
CoE.-ii.ter, my children, the lives of the great.
The lords and the rulers of earth
Who rose to the heights, by a battle with fate,
From a low and unpromising birth.
Fonder, oh reader, the truth that this lends
To the legend that labor bears fruit,
Though the trail be hard, you will find where it ends,
There lies fortune and fame ns your loot.
F. eg a: d with due study the truths that you find
And I thigk your decision will be
To give up ambition and make up your mind
T rema.u an oblivion, like me.

For Spring Proms
1. \mr.S R1' ADV-TO-WF.AR
| By MARY ANN CAMPBELL |
Query: IS it Spring, or ISN'T
it??? If it is, why do we have
Frost every morning? If it isn’t,
what is the purpose in looking as
if it were??? (All this to be
read very plaintively, as though
suffering from consequences of
Unfair, Treacherous weather.)
SIGNS OF WHAT WE ARE
PLEASED TO CALL SPRING:
Photographer Teeter, squat
ting on his heels, surrounded by
a fascinated group, over by the
steps of Condon, giving a fine
exhibition of the subtle art of
manipulating a knife in mumbly
peg. . . .
All the light-hearted damsels
roller-skating about sans a care
in the world, in the middle-of-the
street, the Side, to classes, in
front of the library, any old
place, which indicates youthful
spirits and enough sense to have
acquired some roller skates be
fore all this silly business about
metal rationing went into effect.
Dr. Sullivan's philosophy and
literature class enduring damp
grass one sunny afternoon, all
because it is far better to learn
about philosophy AND literature
some place where you can go to
sleep in the sun, comfortably. . . .
Takes the place of the browsing
room, especially on days when
no one wants to stay inside, any
way. . . .
A few intrepid souls paddling
about on the mill race in canoes.
The pervasive, almost over
whelming scent of freshly-mowed
lawns ... to say nothing of the
equally overwhelming smell (yes,
smell, this time) of sulphur
blown on the trees. . . .
The yellow crocuses (or is it
CROCI ? ? ?) and snowdrops
blooming in the gardens down
Thirteenth . . . and the first faint
green on the lilac bushes, besides
the gray green of the beginning
of leaves on the magnolias. . . .
Foggy mornings are no aid for
curly hair, as most Oregon coeds
have found out. One of the most
simple remedies for this prob
lem is to wear hair in braids,
many varieties of which are be
ing seen around the campus:
Barbara Bock wears her braids
in pigtails, tied at the end with
material which matches her
checked skirt . . . Jean Briggs
wears her hair in pompadour in
front, brushed up and gathered
on top of head at back . . . Glam
ourous Marguerite Rissman look
ing more glamourous with her
hair rolled on the sides in a long
roll . . . And for warm weather
as well as the fog, Jean Villair
fixes her tresses with a pompa
dour in front, and a George
Washington peruke , . . Striking
Marge Curtis likes French braids
for the rainy weather .. . Martha
Benke adds bangs, to her pig
tails . . . Teddy Nicolai rolls her
dark hair in back, using heavy
bone hairpins, or often wearing
long braids . . . Biond Janet Sob
ers keeps pace by wearing her
hair off the face in front and
braids down the back . . . And
lovely Carolyn Loud and June
Walker with reverse rolls . . .
Bringing a new style into play,
Mary Leigh Steele takes time to
Have you TRIED to get near
the tenhisc courts lately? Well,
isn't finding the courts overflow
ing with anxious players another
sign of spring?
Besides, some unfair young wo
men are out practicing putting
on the lawn, just sort of looking
ahead to their first golf game of
the season when they can make
all the other players look like
people just out of hibernation,
while they wrill resemble happy
souls who have spent the winter
at Palm Springs . . . playing golf.
So far, it’s been a TRIFLE
chilly for any extensive sun bath
ing . . . After all. no one wants
