fetyuHe Gosnbine'L Study,
By BETTY ROBERTSON
October 23, 1944, will always be the most memorable day in
the life of the Old Oregon editor, the girl formerly known as
Carol Cook on the University campus, for on that sunshiny
day she became Mrs. Bernard R. Sibulsky, the wife of a corporal
in the United State army. Like a queen in a throneroom, Carol
sits proudly in her den in Gamma hall showing her bright new'
wedding ring to all tnose wno
enter. (It might be well at this
point to mention the correct pro
nunciation of Sibulsky. The “bill"
rhymes with doll.)
-garol became a member of the
Old Oregon staff last January and
was named editor of the publica
tion in May. In addition to this
responsibility, she is on the edi
torial board of the Emerald, and
was chief night editor and city
editor on the paper last year.
A senior in journalism, Mrs.
Sibulsky commented on her plans
after graduation. “I’m thinking of
going to Seattle or back East,” she
said earnestly. “Magazine work,
you know, because I’m a perfec
tionist. A newspaper can never be
perfect, while a magazine can be
irnjeh nearer the goal."
Enter the Hubby
But Caiol couldn’t talk more
than a minute about herself with
out bringing Barney (short for
Bernard) into the picture. She met
him more than two years ago at
the USO in Salem when he was
stationed at Camp Adair, and pres
to! Romance reared its pretty
head. The result occurred two
weeks ago in Salem when they
were married. According to the
papers “the couple left on a wed
ding trip to the Oregon beaches.”
^We got to the coast without a
spare tire, our marriage certificate,
an apron, or any silverware to eat
with,1’ Carol laughed, “but we
managed. Barney actually admit
ted I could cook. I made two won
derful pies — apple and chocolate
and we had steaks and mmmm! I
put my white orchid in the refrig
erator and when I took the darn
thing out it smelled of mayonnaise
and cucumbers. Awfully romantic!’’
People always stare at the
Sibulskys when they’re together
because they’re such a distin
guished-looking couple. Carol is
five feet eleven inches tall (over
six feet in heels) and Barney is six
feet four inches in height. Caro!
is brown-haired and brown-eyed.
Barney is blond.
After the war? “I don't plan
anything after the war—it's all up
to him. But one thing is sure: I'm
gonna quit being a machine and be
a woman.” She thought for a mo
ment, then mentioned being out of
school for the last three weeks.
"I've got a (censored) of a lot of
school work to do, but you can
quote me as saying it was worth
it.” Barney is back at Fort Leonard
Wood, Missouri, now.
Carol is 19 years old and was
born on March 4, 1925. "Mother
was so happy because that was the
day of the year The presidents were
inaugurated. Now Roosevelt has
changed all that.” She grew up in
Salem and graduated from Salem
high school. She worked on the
school newspaper, was a Girl Re
serve, played the piano very well,
accompanied various and sundry
choral groups, and was a member
of the debate team. Which remind
ed her of the state high school
speech tournament when she was

and had one of his quiz programs,
so darned if I didn’t turn out to

straight. I won the prize, too—

Last summer she spent ten
weeks as a lookout on Larison
rock, 40 miles east of Eugene, near
Gakridge, and had a rugged time
in the wild outdoors. The summer
before that she worked on the night

Sunshine Hides, Showers Fall;
Oregon Coeds Dress for Rain
By CAROLYN JACOBS
With December weather here a month early, winter fashions
are making their debut during fall term. Hazel Leonard smile s
at the campus rain in her turquoise raincoat with puffed sleevt s
gathered at the wrist with bows and a belted back. For thoe r
of you who have admired it, we'll add that it was the last or e
of its kind to be found in the Portland stores.
Rainhats are perched on top of
almost every bandanna now. And

Theta pledges have donned uni

white bandannas. You can't miss
them! Flora Kibler goes in for all
red with a matching raincoat and
hat with a satin-like finish. Gloria
Montag solves the problem by
wearing a wool plaid bandanna
with jiarn fringe.
Looking warm and comfy in her
blue angora sweater is Flora Kib
ler, accentuating the blue in her
plaid skirt. Mirza Baumhover
wears a green, red, and white plaid
skirt with a wool bandanna of the
same plaid. Blazers are still worn,
but usually under the indispensable
raincoat. Bessie Babin chooses a

to go under' her navy blazer with
