Thieves Inactive;
No Clues Found,
Say City Police
Since the robbery of four cam
pus living organizations Monday
k. night, no activity of thieves has
been noted, but doors have been
more carefully locked at night.
And as a member of one of the
robbed houses, Alpha Chi Omega,
fcaid, “We get leery in the middle
of the night.”
Police are working on the case,
tut have found no clues other than
those discovered Tuesday morning
at the Alpha Chi Omega house.
There a window to the second floor
gunroom was wide open, and foot
prints were found on the ground
beneath a cedar tree just outside
the window.
• A total of $284 was stolen from
Alpha Chi Omega and Kappa Al
pha Theta on 15th street, Hillcrest
lodge on 19th street, and Sigma
Kappa on Alder street.
Nothing to Stop Fall
Of Auction Hammer
Rain or shine, come what may, Bob “Joe College” Smith and
Ralph Rathjen will be on hand at the College Side Wednesday
afternoon at 4 to auction off dozens of articles—lost and for
gotten at various places on the campus. These articles have
accumulated at the Co-op, the Side, and the lost and found
office in the physical plant. Now the associated women students

Some campus listeners wondered
Friday if the group of Mexican
nationals contracted for summer
work in the region had arrived
ahead of schedule. Others were
reminded of evenings when
Spanish students in the ASTP
filled the air with strains of
“Alla en el Kancho Grande” and
other south of the border hits.
Emerald reporters Friday
night solved the question with a
call to Dr. L. O. Wright, Span
ish department head. No Latin
serenaders—no ghosts—Friday's
“ethereal” tones were produced
by one first year Spanish class
traditionally learning some of
Mexico’s favorites.
Finding that singing in lan
guage classes both improves pro
nunciation and gives a taste of
the living language to an other
wise grammatical first-year
course, Dr. Wright has taught
songs of Mexico in his beginning
classes for a number of years.
Most popular among tunes (as
measured by gusto in singing
them) are “Las Altenitas”—bet
ter known to Americans as “A
Gay Ranchero” and “Rancho
