The “fighting spirit” of some of the visiting servicemen at Sat urday’s game was displayed in such a manner that we are sure a separate section should be reserved for them. At the start of the game, servicemen who had no connection with Oregon were seated in a separate section. Later they veie allowed to fill in -the empty rows in the student section. Servicemen have an admirable habit of cheering for the op posing team or the losing team. They cheered for Oregon at Seattle and last year at Oregon State. We expect and like them to form a rooting section for the opposing team because ve like .-a little competition' in the yelling. However, one or two of the servicemen at Saturday s game went out of the way to be objectionable. We didn’t think that throwing a bottle out on the turf was strictly humorous: And we didn’t think the particular type of showmanship exhibited by one serviceman was-fttrictly humorous. Perhaps designating a separate section apart from the stu dents seems unfair. Only a few of them act objectionably, and we shouldn’t blame them as a group for tire conduct of those few. But we can almost count on having one or two guests who insist on giving impromtu entertainment if they are in a promi nent position. 1 heir actions embarass and often piovoke the stu dents as well as other spectators. Student conduct at games may sometimes cast a bad light on Oregon, but we can at least try to prevent others from antagoniz ing the students with childish actions. All servicemen are welcome at Oregon games, but we expect them to observe the rules of good taste just as much as we expect the Ducks to treat them as guests. Our guests formerly had their own section at games. There should be no exception for service men wlin are not alums or former students. 9njpimatianr ^Uauti Ijau ... Officially it’s the student directory, but to Webfoots who daily dog-car its pages throughout the year the publication is known as the “Pigger’s Guide." And it belongs to Oregon as much as does the Emerald, the Oregana, or the newly-rejuvenated Old Oregon. Containing the location v hys-and-w herefores of every stu dent and faculty member on the campus and off, the bigger s ('.uidc is more important than its cardboard cover would sug gest. This war’s guide is edited by Jack Craig and will list tradi tions, officers of the various organizations, heads of departments, and the names, campus and home addresses, telepluflie numbers, majors and wars of members of the student body. 1 he all-impor tant asterisk will indicate the marital status of individuals. Information within the pages of the I'igger s (uiide is secured from the records of the. registrar s office. Students whose addres ses have changed since registration should notify this office im mediatelv as to their permanent location. The Guide will go to press within the next two weeks—ample time for transient Webfoots to insure an accurate footprint in the Oregon sands of time—the annual bigger’s Guide. CUeete jpsi the Squad . . . Cheers to the rally squad for their enthusiasm and ability in leading' the Oregon rooting section Saturday. With oply one week to practice and prepare their yells, the rally squad made a good appearance at the game. \\ hile those in the stands were merely warm in the shade, the squad mem 'ber had to cut their capers in the glaring sunlight. Their white outfits came out slightly grayer after an afternoon in the track rim. Crowns and raised eyebrows for a few members of the squad ■who took time out in front of the whole student body to arrange their hair. The squad started their sendee with a bang last week—rallies Sunday .and Friday and the game Saturday. Many of them have never led Oregon cheering sections before. They deserve the well-known Split Six for a good job. .l!l!ll<llimilllllllini!Nllllllfiai!!llllllllinil!lll!ll!llUllll!!lll!llllllllllll!lll!ll!ll!in!ininUIIII!llll !l!llll!l!!ll!lf!il!!ll]llll!]l!!l!l!!ll!!!lllll!!!!!!!lll!ll!!!lllll!!!!l!lll!lil[llllllll!lllll[l!llllll!!!illli!ll!ll By REX GUNN I was almost late for a nine o’clock. “Now, look here, man,” I said, “don’t be giving me that two for one stuff; you shouldn’t be here, I left you in Honolulu.” And he said: “Don’t blow a fuse, friend, just come along with He had a big, long Cadillac, a custom built job with upholstery blood red, a horn that played boogie, woogie, and a radio with ten push buttons. Somehow, people ride with him when they get the chance. “Let’s work,” he said. “I need your help for some copy with a certain slant.” I felt like saying something sar donic meaning no, but the uphol stery was soft—like a woman’s hair in moonlight. “How many people on that cam pus?” Sickens me.” “Twenty-four—twenty-five hun dred.” “How many freshmen?” “I don’t know, maybe half.” He got out a list and started making notes. “Well use sophistication, that always works in universities.” “Look,” I said, “why don’t you go hack to Los Angeles, you always did good work there.” “Not needed any more,” he grunted, “the place keeps going by itself—here’s what 1 want you to do. “Get the vets stirred up, tell thiem the profs are a bunch of dumb clucks—not in those words, but you know how.” “No—how?” “Infer it,” he said, “talk about the hot spots, ridicule conserva tives, promote arguments between Greeks and Independents. Get some tricky phrases. Stuff like ‘virtue is lack of opportunity’— something tricky, eye-catchers that will be repeated.” “That’s sophistication?” “Sure,” he pulled out a mari juana cigarette, “you know how to write it.

It was disgraceful! I know that it was none of the University stu dents who were booing and hoot ing throughout the game. I would be ashamed to admit I was a stu dent of this school if it were. But, nevertheless, there were some individuals who were very ignorant of the etiquette of sports. Such behavior is inexcusable. Can not something be done about peo ple who insist upon booing during the games ? Sincerely yours, Vivian Wallad (Editor's note: See editorial, "Fighting Guests.”) Ho Hum I •irtfri’-t******************* By ORIN “HUSKY” WEIR The other evening while sipping a coke in “Vince’s Taylor’s,” a suggestion came our way via Soup Campbell and Franklin Deines. T’was their belief Ho Hum, for a drastic change, should print a “nice things about nice people column” this edition, and thus here we go wasting all this energy just thinkin’ up sweet tidbits about people n’ stuff. Gather round while we spread glad tidings. Starting with today's and each Tuesday hence an out standing gal and fella will be chosen through the courtesy of the UNIVERSITY FLORISTS at 13th and Patterson and Ho Hum they will find a corsage and but toniere with their Emeralds comes dawn, which we hope they will wear with pride throughout the day. Friday’s Ho Hum will pick the couples of the week, and they too will find posies with their morning paper. Anybody is apt to be totin’ flowers, so watch fer yer monicker and congrats to the lucky people! First congratulations are in store for Mickey Metcalf, Theta, who is really a top-notch good woman of the campus. Throughout last year, Mick, as a frosh, did her best to make the campus a better place to be and certainly succeeded. Miss Metcalf, along with her sweet smile and terrific personality is back again this year keeping up her happy average in activities, house functions, ’n just plain being what the boys term “an all around swell gal and lady.” Flowers for Mickey! The boy of the week is none other than Jim Ellison of Sherry Ross. Recently tapped for Skull tTTxTTTTTTTUT and Dagger, Soph honorary, Jim has proven to fellas and gals alike a true pre-war college attitude. To go into all the things he ha.s done for the betterment of th s school would take too much time and space, so we sum up our [thanks in saying congrats and a posie for Jimmy.

Seems this I short character values his time jBabs Borrevick, DG, to such an ex tent he gave up a get rich quick ■house job so he’d have more time [to mutter sweet nothings to the sorority girl. Nice, huh? I Another kid who is doing his best to keep all the girls in a good frame of mind is Stew Mereereau. The only catch is Stew has the idea--, it is the woman’s place to foot the bill.

Doug Edwards, CBS Paris corres pondent, accompanied by an American woman reporter; at tended a fashion show and reported his findings on the net works "Feature Story pro gram. "The French,” he said, “are using masses of sequins and heading, and the embroidery work on clothes is- wonderful. Milady’s dresses are longer in Paris this year—calf length." "Afternoon dresses in some cases have double skirts which are tied around the waist and can be let down to the ground to form a dinner dress. Prices: astronomical! They start at $360 and go to $600." "There’s a new line of dresses which swathes around the hips and folds into a large bow at the back. forming a buckle-like effect.” According to Edwards, there is a trend toward hobble skirts in evening dresses.
