Pledging for Delta Zeta sorority,
which, has been inactive on this
campus since 1933, has been in
progress this week and the names
of 13 pledges were announced Wed

Eleventh avenue east, next fall.
On the campus to assist in or
ganizing the sorority is Mrs. Ed
ward V. Hornung, Detroit, Michi
gan, the national representative.
With the assistance of the Chi chap
ter at OSC, some pledging took
place Monday at Corvallis, and sev
eral members were here Wednesday
night for a rush party at Gerlinger

longs to the national Panhellenic
society, was founded at Miami

Tennis Ball to Roll Tonight;
Stars Form Dance Ceiling
“A Tennis Ball that will hold a campus/’ is the motto chanted
by members of the rally squad and social chairmen when
referring to tonight’s dance which will take place from 8:30
to 11:30 on the courts behind Commerce.
“It is expected that this first tennis court hop of the year
will be widely attended by all stu
dents; for its originality in theme
and setting should be a strong at
traction, plus the added novelty
of dancing under the stars,” said
Marilyn Rakow, chairman.
While most of the campus still
remains doubtful as to weather
conditions tonight, members of the
dance committee seem to be work
ing with calm conviction that
threatening clouds will roll by and
skies will be perfectly clear by
8:30. A last minute survey of com
mittee developments brought the
following statements.
“The sky’s the limit!” said Ferdy
Fernandez when promising some
thing new and revolutionary in
decorations. “We’ll have the latest
in records and the best in P. A.
systems,” plugged Evans Sax.
“Lights,” said Hank Kinsell, “won’t
be necessary because my almanac
says full moon tonight.” Even Ike
Eiekenmeyer is planning the best
technique in clean-up.
In harmony with the informal
I atmosphere, students have been in
structed to appear in jeans and
cottons. Tickets at 35 cents per
person are on sale today by mem
bers of the rally squad and social
chairmen and by special salesmen
in the Side.
Guild Theater Stars
Vogler as Idealist Liliom
The third time is two times
too many for Louis Vogler,
sophomore in music, title role
actor in “Liliom” opening to
night on Guild hall stage. The
play will be in production to
night, Saturday night, and
May 1 and 3.
“This time, suppose I interview
you,” he said with fiendish glee
recalling interviews on Dion An
thony, “The Great God Brown,”
last year, and that epitome of man,
Mr. Antrobus, tn “The Skin of Our
Teeth,” given this fall. Mr. Vogler
suggested that, since the conversa
tion tended in that direction any
way, we discuss “Liliom,” and hv
“I think Liliom got his person
ality through being an idealistic
person who went wrong because of
environment,” he explained. “He
was happy as a barker for the car
rousel until he fell in love with
Julie. Then two forces came into
conflict, his love of independence
and his love for Julie. I think his
love for Julie was the stronger be
cause he attempts robbery only
for Julie and the coming child. His
pride in his own kin, in what he
has created, is above everything
else,” he added, giving as his ex
ample the last scene of the play
when “Liliom,” returning from
heaven, steals a heavenly star for
his daughter.

Junior Weekend traditions will
be strictly enforced starting Mon
day, April 30, Bob Hamilton, chair
man of traditions, announced to
day. As in years past, all male
violators will be punished by the
Order of the “O” club, whose mem
bers swing a mean paddle. Femi
nine offenders will be unceremon
iously dunked at the campus pic
nic, Saturday, May 5.
Names of the offenders will be
published each day in the Em
erald; the first list will appear
Tuesday morning. Any boy whose
name is listed is to report to the
steps of Fenton hall at 12:45 that
same day. Failure to show up will
result in the fine being doubled.
Violations are as follows: step
ping on the Oregon seal near Vil
lard, sitting on the Senior Bench,
smoking on the old campus, step
ping on the grass of the old cam
pus, failure to say “hello” to every
one you meet on “Hello Walk,”
which runs from Villard to Fenton
hall, and failure of freshman girls
to wear green hair ribbons.
Freshman boys will not be re
quired to wear rooters lids this
year because of the difficulty in
obtaining them. Class pants or
slacks, however, will be strictly
checked by the Order of the “O.”
Boys are to wear the following:
freshmen, tin pants or cruise
blues; sophomores, blue jeans; jun
iors, clean cords; and seniors, cords.
During the campus picnic on
Saturday, girls may not talk to
men. Culprits will be punished by
the “water treatment” in the bird
bath by Fenton hall. Another tra
dition which applies to all students
will be that no white shoes are to
be worn on the day of the picnic.
