Kildeer Commands
ATO's Left Field
“Watch out! That isn't second
base you're stepping on.”
Just mosey down to the lower
intramural softball field any after
noon and you'll hear the vilest lan
guage a Kildeer can command.
A cute Kildeer solved the hous
ing shortage by building its nest in
short left field, and is guarding that
patch of ground like a dimaggio.
The ATOs tried to play a prac
tice game, and she chased the left
fielder out of her domain. The um
pire tried to chase her off the field
for unladylike conduct and abusive
language but she just cussed him
out in no uncertain terms and'then
plopped back down on her nest.
The last reports state that she's
still there telling every one off.
What would Happy Chandler do in
a case like this ?
Spring Exam
Sked Released

The schedule of spring term final
examinations, which has been ap
proved by the various department
head of the University, was re

Weekend Tradition Enforcement
Assured by Strong-arm Crew
(This is the first of a series of
articles explaining the Junior
Weekend traditions.)
Enforcement of tradition brings
to the minds of the average college
student a string of arguments, pro
and con, but nevertheless with the
coming of spring and the plans for
Junior Weekend, thoughts of tradi
tions pop into heads all over the
A1 Popick and his committee on
traditions are planning to enforce
all of the customs which have grown
through the years at Oregon.
Order of the O will punish those
who violate during the week before
Junior Weekend, the unwritten
laws by smoking on the old campus,
failing to say hello on Hello Walk
between Fenton and Villard halls,
walking on the grass of either cam
pus, sitting on the senior bench,
walking on the Oregon seal, and, for
freshman girls, failing to wear
green ribbons.
Special traditions will be enforced
during the all-campus picnic and
the violators will be dunked during
the picnic.
No white of any sort is to be
worn to the picnic and women and
men are not to speak until after the
Student violators are not to give
their names to anyone other than
members of the Order of the O who
are wearing lettermen’s sweaters as
the committee does not wish to have
any unfair punishment given.
, Freshman men will paint the O on
, Skinner’s Butte and will scrub the
; Oregon seal in front of Villard hall.
; The traditional tug of war between
the freshman and sophomore men
will take place during the weekend
Traditions were a dominant part
of Junior Weekend before the war,
Popick said, and in the near future
when things are completely back
to normal, they will play as big a
part as they ever did. The commit
tee asks that all living organiza
tions cooperate and see that the
Oregon customs are not violated.
