mall-but-mighty 'Mick
SHolds Panhellenic Reins
A 98-pound dynamo of energy with big brown eyes and a
warm, easy smile is Mary (Mickie) McCandless, this year’s
panhellenic president—you know, the sparkling personality
who gave everyone the will to survive ruch week. Mickie has
who gave everyone the will to survive rush week. Mickie has
ing president of the Alpha Chi Omega house, treasurer of Phi
Theta, vice president of Kwama, and treasurer of the AWS.
She’s really an activity girl!
Naturally one of the major issues that faced Mickie was the
rush week recently completed. Mickie stated that the former
system is in the midst of improvement and that, “The object
of the entire program will be to work with individuals more
than with groups, and to educate high school students to such
requirements as early regisration and high deciles.’’
Mick confessed with a big smile
that so far in her college career
she has changed her major four
times. This year she is majoring
in economics, and has filled sev
eral of her requirements at the
Oregon summer school. “If I had
to do college over again, I'd do it
in summer school," she declared.
(Nice plug for the UO summer
Her head resting on her hand,
Mickie suddenly brightened and
rapidly talked- about one of her
great ambitions—to learn to play
golf. Now that the Eugene
weather has cleared one can prob
ably find Mick on the golf course
—or on second thought, she might
be bowling, because that’s some
thing she really enjoys too. Not
the athletic type, Mary-of-the
dark-bro-wn-liair has “absolutely
no desire to go horseback riding.
(Keep that last statement for
further reference.
Golden Gate Kid
For the present, Mary is living
$6 the thriving metropolis (?) of
Burlingame, California, which she
determines to be three blocks from
San Mateo. However, Mick was
born in San Francisco and plans
to return shortly. She confessed
that one of the biggest thrills of
her life occurred this summer
when she w’as in the Bay City the
day before official V-J day. She
had the opportunity to witness
first hand the wild and completely
rapturous celebration. “I wouldn’t
have missed it for the wrorld!” she
Mary quite suddenly declared
that what she liked most in the
world is people, but a particular
kind—“those who find a happy
medium between being serious and
being funny.” According to Mick,
the adventurous type particularly
appeals to her.
Oh, and' speaking of people, she
began recalling all the fun she has
had with them at Oregon—at
snowball fights, rallies, picnics,
dances . . . “Well, that’s life, but
it won’t be long now until things
are normal again!” she sighed.
You already know that the
best-dressed girls on the cam
pus buy their clothes from
Gordon’s—and the really best
dressed women are fastidious
right from the skin on out.

Vogue fashons were shown Mon
day when Oregon coeds started I
fall classes. Straight skirts, belted j
coats, and lumberman jackets j
caught the envious eye of the I
female and the wandering' eye of
the male.
Suits in the basic colors are
brightened by gay sweaters and!
blouses. June Robbins looked trim
in a grey suit with Montgomery j
jacket and fly-pleated skirt. She
chose a white round-neck blouse
with two rolls of small pearl
buttons toUomplete the outfit.
Contrasting jackets and skirts
are still a favorite style of suit.
The cardigan jacket is the most
popular style when this combina
tion is worn. Sally Mann showed
us a brighter version in her red
jacket and red-and-green plaid
skirt. A black jacket piped in
white worn over a black-and-white J
shepherd plaid skirt is Jean Hall- |
ing’s choice. Her skirt is the new
wrap-around style with a fringe
of the same material. A good
jacket adds variety to the ward
robe because it can be worn with
several different skirts and it will
dress up the popular pedal-push
Skirts are more unusual this
year than they have been for some
time. It no longer requires two
and a half yards of material to
make a fashionable skirt—rather
the less material the better. If a
straight skirt can’t be found, the
one-pleat style is also new—made
in a plaid, check, or bright colored
woolen. Nadine Foss has chosen a
light green with a one-inch rasp
berry check for a narrow one
pleat skirt. The “fly-front” skirt in
a dark green is being worn by
Natalie Brown. Front fullness in
skirts is shown by Joann Ilolstad.
With it she wears a fuschia wool
jersey blouse which is another
] “must” in the 1945 wardrobe. A
; version of the wool blouse is
Helen Hicks’ rolled neck blue
grey blouse with the newr dolman
Cashmeres are back in evidence
this year in beautiful soft shades.
Anne Milestrup has a very small
knit light green sweater that is
really an eye-catcher. A cotton
candy-pink cardigan is Eloise Mul
hausen’s selection.
Also renewing their place on the
campus this fall are wooden shoes.
Caused by the difficulty in obtain
ing our old stand-bys, wooden
shoes are being given the same
rush that they had five years ago.
White with straps and brown
suede are still the favorites.
Rain coats, jackets, and cloth
coats are all popular in the new

A quickie-look at the anklet
clad coed reveals the following
what’s what in footgear for Ore
gon women. Shanksmares (black
buck loafers to most of us rank
first in popularity. With the return
of black sweaters and wool-jersey
pullovers, these complete a match
ing campus costume.
Running foot and foot for second
place are the traditional wooden
shoes and all-white buck saddles.
The former are making their ap
pearance in all colors ranging
from powder blue to chocolate
brown. Still around in appreciable
numbers are the age-old favorite
saddles and those comfortable
brown loafers.
On the dressier side of the scene,
black suede D'Orsay pumps take
top honors, with such variations
as large amber reflector buttons,
big bows, little bows,' and glitter
ing buckles.
Next in line are classical san
dals, a year-in and year-out win
ner. Colored dress shoes show a
definite decline partly due to the
rationing program. Infinitesimal
coeds are adding extra inches by
wearing good-looking platform
soled pumps and sandals.
College Daze of Ophelia
Editor’s note: Ophelia was actually banished ftom the University
onee, but because of the complicated housing situation, she was asked
to come back and complicate it some more.
Ophelia shifted . . . her photostatic copy, health certificate,
birth certificate, adviser s signature, n stocking tap to the other
arm. Time for breakfast . . . had been waiting in front of Rhe
toric, (Sections C34, 46 and 4 closed), for three hours. Mnininiin

lovely brunch . . . lettuce sandwiches ala bananas n salami
with sugar cookies.
