With the presentation of the sophomore Whiskerino tonight
all arguments for and against the various and sundry traditions
and practices involved become obsolete. Those who maintain
that such activities arc childish perhaps lack the endearing hu
man quality of being childish at certain times. No matter how
serious life may be, there are occasions when the proverbial
tomfoolery is a welcome relief. Or woidd you rather have
steak for dessert, too?
This year’s Whiskerino will be the first of the “big six”
dances—with a promise of great success. Returning, as in pre
war days to McArthur court, the sophomore class (with the
help of the freshmen, juniors and seniors), will attempt to pro
vide the occasion for some of the aforementioned frolicing.
Students looking for a subject for a thesis, will not find it at the
dance. Traditionally, the Whiskerino is one of the special “gay
dog" times when gripes are forgotten and fun is had by all.
One professor is tired of letting journalism students have
their way. He requests them to omit the “more” at the end of

The Oregon-WSC game today is only as far away as the
A few weeks ago the Webfoot squad played the most thrilling
ball game Oregon students have seen when they beat the Cou
gars on Hayward field. Remember—that was the Saturday
when the Oregon rooting section sounded like a united group of
lively people instead of a bunch of dead Ducks.
With that defeat fresh in their memories, the Washington
State gridmen. will be out to even the score. Oregon has been on
the short end of the score in the last two weeks so the Webfoots
will have a challenge to meet.
News releases sav that the teams will meet on a field covered
with a two-inch blanket of snow. This, in itself, is enough to
make the game as novel for Oregon as Kugene’s rainy weather
has been for Californians in times past.
Since we can't cheer the team from the 50-yard line, we can
take the second choice of hearing it, play by play, over the air

There are those individuals at Oregon who believe that ev
erything in the present system must go. They propose a revolu
tionary hut vague plan for clearing away the existing set-up and
instituting a yew one.
They may he thought of as the men with the plans.
Anyone will admit that Oregon can stand plenty of improve

We can clean tip elections—ban coercion, institute better
polling practices, and work toward a merit system of election.

of the dorm problems.
We can get the Krb Memorial Union building fund rolling in.
If we wish to take a more active part in Oregon life, we will
have to earn that responsibility by using intelligently and fully
the power we possess now.

Dear Mickey Davis,
Could it possibly be arranged to
have a mirror at the opposite side
of the field, so that we in the card
section could see what is going on.
It would help us with our spelling.
Or better yet, just whisper softly
into the microphone what in the
heck is going on.

Clips and Comments

At Louisiana State university,
week night dates are called “baby
dates.’’ One irate freshman, noting
that his girl had signed out for a
"baby date” drew himself up to
his full 5 feet 2 inches and said
indignantly, "Well, it’s all right

16-year-olds, but they don’t have
to call them “baby dates.”
