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 employee. 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 dipped.” 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, (Please turn to page eight) in journalism distribution and col lection.

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 compromise. 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 lard opener operated on his ba sis.
