r “We are caught between two
worlds,” one veteran stated, “the
world of grim reality and sheer
cold brute force and the world of
nice abstract utopian plans and
dreams. It is only natural that the
transition we have to make will
take time and require outside
We are the vets, the men who
fought and endured to make places
like the University of Oregon pos
sible, along with hundreds of
other things we <, took for granted
before we went away.
Some of us have had a tougher
time than others. Some of us have
fought the battles of the barracks
and office while others have faced
the enemy, but all of us have done
our best, what We wanted to do
or what We knew we had to do.
Job to Be Done
We feel no keen sense of group
problem of adjustment, no deep
feeling of conscious bravado. We
as a group are still the same fel
lows who left our schools, homes,
friends, and relatives to go out to
do a job that had to be done.
Some of us were good soldiers
in war. Some were poor, and by
the same token some of us will Be
good civilians in peace, and some
We are not different in our basic
ideas no matter how confused We
may seem, even to ourselves at
We want to be accepted normal
ly and naturally When we return
just as though we had been off for
a summer vacation and are now
returning to another type of life.
Yes, we have our problems and
worries. Who hasn't?
Civilians in Uniform
The vast majority of US were
civilians in uniform, and now we
don’t want to be thought of as
soldiers in civilian clothes. We are
not just veterans, not just re
turnees, but we are Sam Jones and
Bill Smith, Americans.
Most of us want to make a suc
cess of college. So does everyone
else in school.
We represent no group problem
in ourselves, but only in the eyes
of others. We are individual,
damned individual, and we think
that we will remain so.
To express the feelings of each
of us individually m any one
article would be futile and as.
much a waste of time as tryiiig to
analyze us as a group.
We are essentially just as we
were before we went into service,
perhaps some of us are a little
more confused, and all of us are
wiser. You will have to bear with
our confusion as you bear with
the-confusion found almost every
where else at the present time.
Some of Us Will succeed. Some
will fail, as some succeeded and
some failed in military life, but the
burden of the individual rests not
with the group but with that indi
vidual alone and with whomever
he Wants to share it or who is
willing to share it with him.
As a summation let me say that
to judge one Veteran or make one
veteran’s problem relative to all
the other veterans or even a con
siderable group of them is as
sheer a fallacy as judging all the
students in school by one student
or particular group of students. It
just can’t be done.
My name is Bill Smith, student.

Someone caught up with Yip
Yip should feel very bad.
After many successful years of
writing lyrics for popular songs,
Yip has slipped.
Tt seems that one of his top
notchers, “More and More,” isn’t
In that part where the song
goes: “more and more I'm less and
l^ss unwilling to give up seeing
more and more of you,” it doesn’t
come out right.
The fellow who caught up with
Yip says it should go: “more and
more I'm more and more, unwill
ing to give up seeing more and
more of you,’’ or “less and less, I’m
less unwilling to, etc.”
The guy who found out says
this doesn’t speak well for either
Yip or the general public.
He has sounded a slnster note.
He is attacking the very founda
tion of popular American music.
What if he should find out that
when the love bug bites you, you
say “the moon jumped over the
cow hay doodle” instead of the
way it is in the song: “the moon
jumped over the cow hay diddle.”
This guy might even disclose
that back in 1935, instead of “Pen
nies from Heaven," it was raining
rain. And think what he could do
to “Yes, We Have no Bananas"
and more recently "June is Bustin
Out Al! Over.”
We must tally to Yip's defense.
He turns out some of the best
syrup on the market today, and
Yip might get discouraged and
quit if we allow people to go
around inspecting his lyrics.
There has to be a way to make
“more and more I'm less and less
unwilling to give up seeing more
and more of you" mean well
mean what that fellow says it

What American student would lie hampered in his studying
hv lack of light, books, drinking water, and food? Such things
are taken for granted in the United States.
In China 14 student centers are maintained by the National
Student Relief committee to provide just those things. If it
weren't for soy bean milk bars in the centers, many students
would go without breakfast. They cannot afford to buy oil for
individual lamps; at the centers the oil is pooled and used for
one large lamp.
Boiled water, both precious and necessary in preventing dis
eases, is kept at the centers. Showers and baths are also provided,
and books and magazines are available.
Seemingly the centers provide so little, yet to the Chinese
student these little things arc important. The Chinese National
Student Relief committee needs money for these centers and
for such projects as self-help w hich provides a variety of work
in exchange for books and oil.
University students can contribute throught the World Stu
dent Service fund drive. The campaign begins today at living or
ganizations and at the Co-op. The goal of the drive is $1 per per
son, a minimum of $2000 for the entire campus.
A dollar per person will help a lot, but if we want Chinese uni
versities and other schools in war-ravaged countries to rebuild
and their students to be well enough to carry on their studies and
have the simple necessities, perhaps we can dig a little deeper.
The need is limitless.

Oregon ra-llied—and in no uncertain terms! Spurred by the
in-this-case-constructive criticism of the many, the rally squad
produced a card and rooting section at Saturday's game which
gave visitors something to take home with them. The squad was
synchronized; the yells were far from weak, and former convic
tions as to Oregon's lack of sportsmanship dissolved.
Carefully planned by the squad with the aid of Hugh Dor

lack of experience on the part of the students. Seen from the re

To the Editor
If anyone cares to look me up
between now and the end of the
month, they may rest assured I
will be home. For Saturday, my
wife and I, to the tune of $3.60,
saw Oregon trounce Washington
Being a rookie to civilian life
and the University, I asked at the
ticket office before the game if I
might be admitted with my ASUO
“No, I’m sorry,” was the answer,
“if you want to sit with your wife,
you will have to buy two tickets.”
We had our hearts set on seeing
the game, so we decided to splurge
our entire month’s budget money
set aside for pleasure and go.
Or don’t you think we need a
budget ? Have you tried to run a
home on $75.00 a month lately ? If
you haven’t, then perhaps I could
give a demonstration on how to
squeeze the most out of a dime.
Isn't it wonderful? My ASUO
card will get me into the game,
but when I try to take my wife—
“hold on, brother, buy two seats.”
Ah well, we displayed our school
spirit for one week, anyway, by
attending the game. My wife and
1 would not want the students to
think we lacked school spirit.
True, we’ll not be around town or
to any of the games for awhile.
The game cost us too much Satur
day. We’re just broke.
