She was sipping orange juice
in the Side Thursday, at 1:30 p.m.
Nothing unusual about a coed in
the Side except that she was Jean
Page, second Vice-president of
the ASUO, and a Pi Phi pledge.
Pi Phi pledges, like roost other
pledges, aren’t supposed to be in
thgi Side until 4 p.ro.
Dark-eyed' Jean, a senior in
business administration and Mult
nomah junior college transfer of
two years ago, wasn’t particu
larly conscience-stricken until
1:36 p.m., when sorority sisters
put in an appearance. “Quick,
tell them why I’m here,” she
choked, managing a grin. They

Sophomore dance or not, come
Saturday night, many Oregon
coeds will be showing off new
gowns. With the shortage of for
mals. date dresses are doing dou
ble duty-—and what dresses coeds
have for the occasion!
A black dress seems to be a
college prerequisite but this year
many new touches are added to
offset its severity.
Jean Murray’s black crepe
makes use of the new short cap
sleeves, which are trimmed with
black lace in this case . . . Jane
Kern wears a V-necked black
crepe with large V's of cerise at
the skirt pockets.
Tinky Paladini’s short dinner
dress would bring whistles from
any male. The top is of black lace
with a low back of black lace
also, and a crepe skirt! , . .
Yvonne Edwards has another
swell short dinner dress of black
net with black lace insets on the
skirt. The bodice has black taffeta
under the net.
Mary Fitzgerald’s black crepe
is highlighted by the powder blue
net, trimmed with beads at the
neck . . . Betty June Henson pre
fers a black velveteen jumper,
which she wears with a dressy
wmie crepe Diouse.
Not all the newest date dress
es are black, however. For sheer
Glamour check Phyllis Van Pet
ten's ultra red lame'dress. The
sleeves are very short and set
with a lew round neck.
Eileen Brenneman chooses a
silver tauee dress that would
turn any coed slightly green with
And then there’s Katherine
Dunn with her purple jumper,
bordered with flowers, and with
scallops around the edge.

Proof that Coed Capers plans
are proceeding by leaps: and
bounds comes from three diligent,
energetic committee heads—Jean
Taylor, Shirley "Squirrel” Hun
tington, and Roseann LecHe (bet

Referring to the "Shipyards of
Tomorrow,” junior class skit;
Jean Taylor says, “While most
of oqr plans are secret wc can
let you know that the skit “hing
es” on the idea of women run
ning the shipyards of the fu
ture; and any man trying to get
in will have quite a bit of diffi

you the truth, we’re really not so
sure about men being less effi

the freshman skit, says “Butch”
Lecke. Butch and two others,
Jean Bauer and Sue Welch are
still in. the process of writing this
masterpiece, which promises to
be different to say the least. "No
casting has been done yet,” says
Butch, “but we are having a
meeting today for that purpose.”
From "Squirrel” Huntington
comes news that she and her
stooge, Janet "Fewee” Ross, will
have several surprises for the big
night. Both girls are mistresses
of ceremony, which in itself sug
gests a novel situation.

After spending balf of one eve
ning on the phone trying to di
vulge the secrets of "who is., true
to*'whom,”, your two reporters
found that the engaged;and mar
ried status-of the female popula
tion has not changed a great deal.
If there have been, any, radical
changes that have not . 'been
brought to our attention please
give out and let it he known!'
Let us first look into the mar
riage situation that has come to
our attention since last our col
umn greeted youn eyes. Alpha
Chi Ann Voder burg, married The
ta Chi Chuck Hastier .just two
weeks ago. This was done in rath
er a rush, b.ut we were informed
that the two have been engaged
for quite some time. The mar
riage of Theta Jean Daniels and
Sigma Chi Bob Curtis, has been
brought into the open before, so
need we say more?
Heading the list of newly en
gaged couples, we find Pi Phi
Mary Jane Terry, who recently
announced her engagement to
James Rodman, Jr., of Eugene.
Rumor has, it that they plan to
begin married life late in Decem
ber. Your Emerald has slightly
overlooked June Marie Wilson,
AOPi, who has been engaged to
Dwight Wychoff of the Navy
Air Corps since last Christmas
eve. All due apologies to Miss
Wilsop. The well trained grape
vine. informs us that Chi O Vir
ginia Link is definitely tied down
(but not formally, engaged) to
Ensign Perry, Ford, Her sorority
sisters say that they’ll be mar
ried next year probably. If you
are around the Alpha Phi house
some day soon, just drop in to
see the sparkler that Betty Clark,
wpars on the appropriate finger.
Si Sidesinger, Fiji, did the hon
ors just recently.
Now come the various Wings
which gleam so prettily on many
bright-colored sweaters. If, how
ever, you. have a pair of wings
and have not been mentioned,
don’t be alarmed), for we will
try. to find you in our next edi
tion. Theta Marilyn Walters
