Miss Overland
Names Odeon
Heads for 1946
Pat Smith, sophomore in art,
and Robert McGill, junior in lib
eral arts, have been named by Peg
gy Overland, retiring chairman of
C^rleon, as co-chairmen of the 1946
Odeon, student creative-art show.
Reversing the usual procedure of
having one chairman appointed
during fall term by W. A. Dahl
berg, faculty adviser, and head of
speech and drama, Miss Overland
has announced that future chair
men will be named during the
regular evening performance of
Odeon by the retiring chairman.
The two new chairmen are to
meet with Miss Overland and with
faculty advisers during spring
term in order to plan next year’s
procedure. This new method has
lafeen initiated, according to Miss
Overland, because in the past the
chairman has had to step into a
position of great responsibility
without adequate preparation and
with little knowledge of past set

’Liliom’ Transcends From
World Gaiety to Heaven;
Love Drama Reviewed
Gay in its candy-striped tent
and tinkling carrousel music, “Lil
iom” opens in a prologue of world
ly holiday festivity and transcends
to a migstrate's court—in heaven.
“For rich people,” croaks old
Ficsur, “the heavenly court; for
us poor people, only justice. And
where there's justice there’s po
lice.” Ferenc Molnar, Hungarian
author of “Liliom” has left much
of the interpretation of his play to
his audience. When Lilliom, the
ne’er do well, the tough, returns to
earth after sixteen years in the
purifying fire he brings with him
a stolen star to give to his child,
and strikes her hand instead. And
Molnar never says which door
opens to Liliom.
The only answer comes in Julie’s
lines to her daughter, “Yes, my
child, a person can beat you, and
beat you, and it will never hurt,
at all.”
Love Story
“Liliom” is a love story, a story
of a girl who said she knew if 3he
ever loved a man she would die
for him, and of a man who asked,
“You could love men, when you
know what I am, a no-good, a
braggart, a thief, Aren’t you afraid
of me?”
Lewis Vogler as Liliom is a man
who swaggers about, beats his
wife, sponges upon her relatives;
and will not admit he loves her;
he is a man whose soul sings with
the carrousel music, who watches
the train go out of sight down the
tracks, whose pride in his kin, that

Expert Clarifies
UO Veterans’
To clarify the question of
eligibility for veterans’ subsis
tence allowances under Public
Law 346, Raymond S. Sifdol,
training officer of the campus
veterans administration guid
ance center, has referred stu
dents to title II of that law
which determines eligibility for
education and training. This
question has been puzzling
many of the veterans on the
Public Law 346 states that a per
son gainfully employed in full-time
employment, except when it is re
lated to his course of education or
training, will thereby lose the au

Dr. Popenoe
Gives Advice
On Marriage
“It is not as important to find
the right partner as to be the right
partner,” stated Dr. Paul Popenoe,
director of the American Institute
of Family Relations, in his talk on
engagement and marriage in war
time at Thursday’s assembly in
McArthur court.
Citing an alarming divorce rate.
40 per cent more divorces than
marriages in Multnomah county,
Dr. Popenoe explained that mar
riages often fail because one or
the other of the partners does not
give the necessary effort to make
the marriage a success. In his
opinion, the necessary preparations
for marriage are: the right atti
tudes, a wise choice of mate, and
sufficient technical information,
the resultant of these three will
make for a happy and successful
marriage, he said.
Too many hasty marriages are
entered into without sufficient
thought, he warned, and are often
motivated by nothing stronger
than mob psychology, romanticism,
or irresponsibility. Marriages
should be built on something more
substantial, and the most success
ful marriages are those in which
the partners have known each oth
er for two or three years before
becoming engaged, and went
through a formal betrothal period
of at least six months.
Advice to Wives
For those who are married to
men overseas, Dr. Popenoe recom
mended that they keep busy, work
ing or going to school. He advised
those in school to take subjects
which will help them to understand
their husbands better, and to help
them make a better home when he
returns. Such subjects as mental
hygiene, social psychology, and
homemaking are .valuable aids in
becoming a good wife, Dr. Popenoe
Motion pictures and radio are
largely responsible for the over
romantic notion of marriage which
many people have, he explained.
They preach that marriage is a
destination, when in reality it is
only the beginning of a journey
which, if an effort is made to make
it a success, can give the greatest
happiness human nature will ever
know, he concluded.
