Trim Unknown Sweetheart
Trims Show Windows Too
This week’s Unknown Sweetheart
is in navy slang, 4.0. We had quite
a time finding her, taut managed to
track her down at the Westgate
dress shop where she works at win
dow trimming during odd hours.
Her name: Sharon Bustey.
Vital statistics: 5 feet 2 inches,
the prettiest natural blonde hair to
be seen on the campus; weight
around 104; eyes, hazel; year, fresh
man; major, interior design.
When notified that she had been
chosen Oregon’s fifth Unknown
jjlweetheart, Sharon was so over
whelmed she couldn’t speak. All she
could do was to smooth a wrinkle in
the yellow creation she was wear
ing, and smile. We didn’t want to
interrupt her work, so we talked
to the manager for some current
information about her celebrated
She’s Always on Time
“Oh, Sharon is one of the hardest
working girls in the whole store,”
offered the manager. “We don't
know what we would do without
her. Her complexion is the talk of
the campus along with her platinum
blonde hair. She always appears
hurt when coeds maliciously whis
per that her curls are bottle
Sharon smiled in approval.
“Whenever we receive a daring
low cut formal,” the manager con
tinued, “Sharon is the first to try
it on. With her face and figure she
is-the most popular model we’ve
ever had.”
We were standing behind Sharon,

How Can a Can
Opener Open Cans?
The several metaphysical as
pects of the simple can opener
failed to defy an enterprising lad
in Professor O. M. Willard's Eng
lish comp section, who wrote his
weekly theme on the complexiti
ties of that gadget. Alas, the pro
fessor differed in his interpreta
tion of the useful object, for the
student had noted that the cut
ting edge of the opener was forced
into the can, while Mr. Willard in
sisted that the can was forced
against the cutting wheel.
A serious discussion followed,
and the finer points of the object
were analyzed and categorized,
but the period ended without a
The class met again, with the
argument still pending, but Mrs.
Willard had contributed her can
opener to a worthy cause, and the
professor, lecturing on the intra
cacies of the instrument, proved
to the class that at least the Wil
