“My confidence in the army has been restored,” declared
Leonard L. Jermain, journalism instructor, as he fondled a pe
culiar object with a faint resemblance to a knife. “And all be
cause of this,” he said, holding up the instrument which proved
to be a cane-chopping knife which he had found in an abandon
ea jap 1001 sneu.
It all began down in New Guinea
when Jermain, then a first lieu
tenant in the army, was sent to

Australia as a hospital patient.
He was able to take most of his
belongings with him, but he was
forced to leave behind his bedroll
which was loaded down with a
number of things, including a
sawed-off Jap rifle, several rounds
of ammunition, a stabbing knife
and other valuables.
That was in August, 1943. Two
years and two and a half months
later, Jermain received word from
the army effects depot that his be
longings were being forwarded.
Yesterday two boxes, one about 12
inches square and the other about
the size of a shoe box, arrived.
Included in the two parcels
were: one barracks bag, bearing
his name, which is issued only to
enlisted men; two pairs of socks,
one of which was his; a handker
chief he had never owned; four
jungle preserving bags; one pair of
worn-out, remodeled shoes with
hobnails; two pairs of old shorts
suitable for washing his car; one
stabbing knife with sheaf; one
broken sheaf; one pair of old
swimming trunks; and the cane
chopping knife which was quite
useful in the jungle for driving
tent stakes.
The prized Jap rifle was miss
ing. So was the sleeping bag
valued at around 20 dollars. How
ever, there was one thing worthy
of the unpacking—the bottom
half of a Jap anti-tank shell bear
ing Japanese characters which had
been made into an ashtray.
Within earshot of the captain,
he said, ‘‘It is pretty hard to take
orders from a man who knows no
better than to end a sentence with
a preposition.”

5 o'clock Shadow
Decreed by Sophs
Once again all Oregon men will
lay away their shaving cream until
the annual Sophomore Whiskerino
scheduled Saturday November 10.
Thursday November 2 is the day
for shelving razors. Since the game
in Portland will be no excuse for
shaving, five o’clock shadows will
be in style this week-end.
For the benefit of men who
appear without even a stubble,
dunkings by the Order of the “O”
will be held in front of the Side,
next Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday at four o’clock. The winner
of the beard contest will be chosen
during the intermission of the
“Whiskerino” dance by a faculty
member, a local barber, and con
test chairman, Norma Figoni.
Last year Dan Economus was
judged man with the most abun
dant beard. Paul Smith, who was a
close runner up and a promising
candidate for this year’s beard
king, wishes luck to all. Here’s to
better and bigger beards.
The word Kosher means “fit”
or “proper” and is derived from
the book of Esther in the Bible.
