“Sometime Again” is a book
that captures the mood of Alaska
to be read in the evening by a
cozy fireplace. The book is written
in such a way that one can almost
hear the ravens scream and the
wolves howl to their mates in the
frozen interior, reviews say.
“If you have ever been to Alaska
the book will be especially inter
esting to you; if you have not, you
will immediately catch its haunt
ing appeal,” according to Gill’s.
Not a War Book
. “Although it is definitely not a
“*'war book, there are thrilling
stories of the submarine scare that
interrupted a poker game; of the
rumor over the ship that the skip
per had lost his way in the fog.”
Everyone is invited to meet
Major Hall and receive his auto
graph on this new book on Friday.
Letter Received From
Ex-Webfoot in Germany
Former Webfoot Jack Boone,
law student who left the campus
in 1942, recently wrote a letter to
Dean Karl W. Onthank telling of
his experiences in Germany. Boone,
a member of ATO fraternity, is
now with a paratroop division sta
tioned in Frankfurt, Germany,
^"guarding USFET headquarters.
One of the highlights of his duty
there has been his visit to General
Eisenhower’s impressive office.
While on a seven-day leave in
London, Boone noticed that the
damage to the city was not too
obvious now. Although he will be
stationed in Frankfurt indefinitely,
Boone expressed his wish to come
back to the University of Oregon
when he leaves the army.
A recent survey has shown that
fifty per cent of all married
couples in Denver are women.
