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 See Schedule Page 3) The schedule of spring term final examinations, which has been ap proved by the various department head of the University, was re leased by the registrar's office yes terday. The general plan of this term’s slate has been to follow that of win ter term. The schedule of the tests has been reversed in order to equal ize the advantages or disadvantag es enjoyed or suffered by students under the arrangement of the pre vious term. The plan has been modified by the need for immediate listing of grades for prospective June graduates fol lowing examinations.. The exam in Survey of English Lit is placed at the end of the week because few seniors are enrolled in the course. The exam programs for winter and spring terms, following unsatis factory innovations attempted in the fall, mark a return to the pre vious scheme for a special schedule of finals distributed over an entire week. jiuihiiujk . ’ ■:» ART JOHNSON. . .

Weekend Tradition Enforcement Assured by Strong-arm Crew (This is the first of a series of articles explaining the Junior Weekend traditions.) By BARBARA GILBERT and DIANA DYE 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 campus. 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 coronation. 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.
