Kwamas Reply
To Challenge
After great pondering and de
liberation on the part of the highly
congenial and closely integrated
University of Oregon "women’s”
sfcappy service honorary, KWAMA
has accepted the challenge of one
Phi Theta Upsilon, which will at
tempt to defeat the aforementioned
Allowing for the advanced age
of the Phi Theta “Haggard Has
Beens,” Kwama will string along
with their plea for a basketball
game between the halves of the
Oregon-Oregon State game on Feb
ruary 10.
Avoiding the rash selection of
incompetent coaches, Kwama is
searching for a deeper, more ma
ture guiding light, who will be an
nounced after considering the 18,
703 petitions presented.
From the office of the captain
c9rnes the following lineup:
Center — Elsie “chairman of
moving freshmen into Alpha
hall” Ball.
Forward—Jada “got her pic
ture in Life” Fancher.
Forward—Marilyn “president
of the Lonely Hearts club”
Guard—Lis “who let the air
out of my tires?” Gilmore.
Guard — Butch “no title is
adequate” Leckie.
Substitutes are a closely
guarded secret!
As the “Flashy Few” (19!!!)
will undoubtedly have the support
cf^the entire student body, on be
half of the “Hep Hoopsters” the
Kwamas would like to encourage a
few yells for our opponents.

'Embraceable You’
Out Of Control
The big love scene in •‘Heav
en Can Wait,” Bette hurls her
self into Joe's arms in an inti
mate embrace. To facilitate t
line to Messenger 7013, it was
decided that Joe's head would
go to the right, and Bette's to
the left. The big moment at the
rehearsal came. With lightning
speed, Bette and Joe came to
gether. Bette forgot, and went
to the right. Joe also went to the
right. Bette and Joe met head
on. There was a slight thud.
The only damage reported was
a slight blunting of Bette’s nose.
This noon is the deadline for
dropping courses, and all cours
es remaining on the student’s
registration card at that time
become a part of his record for
flic term.
