\\ ith the Military Ball over and the memory of one huge
success behind us, we sort of hoped there would be lots of ro
mantic news. We can tell you this much:
ADPi \ \ onne Rdwarcis has an eastern fraternity pin, from
what we can find out, but is not ready to divulge the fellow’s
name. Xow is that fair? Pi Phi Audrey Cardell recent! v tnnt- n

For the UO coed: Do you have
at least one or two extra hours
a week (left over after classes,
furious studying ? ? ? and such es
sential things as eating and sleep
ing) which you fill by pouring
down cokes, playing bridge, gos
siping, or moaning about life in
general ?
Ked Cross
Ah—you have ? Then why not
trip over to the Red Cross center
to fill those hours profitably for
the war effort. They do need more
girls and perhaps it would help
make amends for the accusations
of such persons as Damon Runyon
whose unpublished article “I beg
your pardon, girls” seems to have
practically ‘‘torn the girls of Amer
ica apart”—telling of women’s
failure to answer the nation’s call
to uniform. But since many of us
want our educations and are lucky
enough to be able to get them now,
one way of helping almost as much
IS to HELP—in just such things
as Red Cross.
More about women—and college
girls, too—Mrs. Stuart Strong,
past dean of Mills college, will be
the principle speaker at the AWS
assembly next Tuesday, February

sergeants, Adaline Franks and L.

affair in general conducted by pres

up to the new officers.
