A SX s Goat;
Meat Scarce
“No. it isn't a lamb,” Sigma
Chi Paul Basche expostulated in
“Well, what is it?” inquired
four staring bystanders.
Paul looked down at the small
creature with the smashed-in
features, dangling hoofs, and se
ductive eyes, announcing tri
umphantly, “It’s a goat, and its
name is 'Bedroom-Eyes’.”
He further related that it was
found Tuesday by the Sigma Chis
in the alley near their house . . .
but, in a loud whisper, he fur
tively asked, “Do you want to
know the TRUTH?” He took a
quick glance over his shoulder.
“Well . . . Hal Martin bought it
for his nephew who is reading
goat stories, and now the little
nephew doesn’t want it.”
So, Paul was taking it for a
stroll in the library the other
night, “only it wouldn't stroll.”
He revealed that the drastic meat
curtailment program is going to
make life difficult for “Bedroom
Eyes” in the future.

Today's Emerald is the last of winter term. For several of the
staff, it is the last Emerald for the duration. Next term’s staff will
be smaller, their job will be tougher, but the student body will still
be able to count on having its Emerald.
The students can count on an Emerald because of a handful cf
loyal workers who enjoy getting out the new.-, who get a kick out of
working at the “shack."
These workers, not the editorial board, not the upper news staff,
but the reporters, the night staff, and the city desk workers, ate tho
real backbone of the paper. You never hear about these workers for
they're practically unsung, so perhaps it's right they should get a.
paragraph or two in this last issue.
Perhaps some of them, the ones who don't get down to the jour
nalism building quite as often, think they aren’t appreciated, but they
should know that if it weren't for them, despite all the efforts of the
upper news staff, the average student wouldn’t have an Emerald each
morning with his coffee.
On a great many college campuses all over the country, there
won't he any paper next term, but here at Oregon, with the nucleus
of workers who will come back, the Emerald will continue to be ; ib
The next issue will be out the morning of March 16. To those who
have worked hard and long this past term or two to make the Emerald
the top college paper it is, we feel we express the sentiments of tho.
entire student body when we say, simply . . . thanks.
