    'Find Nugget’
Hoppers Told
Men Scarce
“Find a Nugget for a Nickel”
is the slogan for the last nickel
hop of this school year scheduled
for Wednesday, April 14, from
6:30 to 8:30 p.m., according to
Sally Spies and Lois Winsley, co
chairmen of the affair.
This last chance for many men
to “cover the field" will afford
much opportunity, since all wom
en’s living organizations will be
open and will be directly compet
ing against each other.
To the men’s house which has
bought the largest number of
. tickets will go the title of “Den
of the Wolves” and a $5 money or
der for new phonograph records
for that house.
Each girl will have as many
tickets as there are dances and.
will give one to each person with
whom she begins a dance. Then,
besides the name of the girl and
her house written on the ticket,
each man will write, his name and
living organization on his tickets
and turn them into the house at
which he collected them.
“In this way it will eliminate
the inconvenience of men having
to turn all their tickets in at the
Side afterwards,” said Miss Wins
It will also assure that glj, tick
ets are collected, since .mapy, per
sons won’t want to be bottled
with their disposal.
Last term Ililyard house won .
in the competition between wom
en’s houses, taking the most mon
ey per girl. Instead of “Den of
the Wolves,” the Theta Chis, win
ning men’s house, won the title
of "King of the Wolves.”
Working with Misses Spies and
Winsley are the following: Gene
Lockman and Betty Lu Siegman,
publicity; Ardis Jensen and Kath
ryn Dunn, prizes; and Alysone
Hales and Ann Graham, tickets.

look forward to a post-war world
in which the, “supremacy of the
individual will be; reestablished.’’
The colonel, a former Oregon
law school professor, predicted
that the 208 men who entrained
for Fort Lewis this morning will
return to the University after
the war “intolerant of sham and
waste of time. You'll demand
stiff, hard courses that will pre
pare you for the task ahead. The
‘Joe College’ stuff will be out."
University Credit
That University men who
served in the armed forces dur
ing the war may receive Univer
sity credit for the time they spend
in service was revealed by Dr.
Donald M. Erb, University presi
dent, who said that machinery is
now under way to establish meth
ods of determining what types of
military service will be consid
ered “academically eligible for
Praising the ERC students for
their cooperation in their ROTC
work on the campus, Col. C. L.
Sampson, commander of the Uni
versity ROTC, said that although
there are many similarities be
tween this and past wars there
are also many differences.
Glamour Absent
“The pomp and glamour of war
that characterized our previous
mobilizations is absent today,’’
Colonel Sampson, a veteran of
the Spanish-American war, de
clared. “Today’s battles are to
the accompaniment of clashing
gears and the roar of motors.”
He said that the ROTC training
■received by the ERC men at the
University stamped them as
“trained men who should advance
rapidly through the ranks to be
come commissioned officers.”
Les Anderson, ASUO president,
addressed the assembly express
ing hope that at the “first home
coming after the armistice we
may all gather again for a re
union on our campus.”
A color guard of ROTC stu
dents with music by the band
added a touch of military dignity.

Juniors Solicit
Theme Entries
It's still not too late for aspir
ing persons interested in a $5
prize to think-up an idea for the
Junior Weekend theme contest
which closes at 12 noon today,
according to Jean Frideger, in
charge of the contest.
All entries should be turned in
either to the educational activi
ties office or to Miss Frideger.
Main rules for the contest in
clude :
1. University facilities should
be considered for adaptation of
the theme, such as the fact that
the affair will be held in McAr
thur court rather than having the
traditional Canoe Fete along the
mill race.
2. Themes should also be of
popular appeal and avoid too
much stress on the war as well as
be simple but complete outlines
rather than elaborate and involv
ed plans.
3. Themes will be judged by sev
eral faculty members and a prize
of $5 awarded to the idea which
they think is most suitable.

Francescatti has had one sad
experience in his life. A few sea
sons ago he was giving a concert
in Milan, and Toscanini came to
the hall to hear him. As the maes
tro entered the auditorium, just
before Francescatti was about to
play, the audience burst into ap
plause in honor of the maestro's
Toscanini, modest and offended
that his presence had been pub
licly recognized, rushed out of the
hall and never came back.
“I wanted so much to have him
hear me,” recalled the violinist
