This year so many houses entered that it was
necessary to have an elimination contest for the
women's houses. Having heard some of them
myself, I can guarantee that you'll enjoy that.
That big meeting of all the mothers is Satur
day morning. If you'd like to get the word
briefly on what their plans for the coming year
are, this is the place to find out. You'll meet the
organization's officers and probably some of
the big wheels on campus.
The Eugene Mothers club, aided by mem
bers of the Young Women's Christian associa

give you a tea Saturday afternoon. You'll get a
chance to meet more mothers there and relax a
minute over a soothing cup of tea.
The float parade with an entry from each
living organization will begin winding its way
around the campus at 4 p.m. and after passing

talk with you and rest a minute.
After church Sunday we'll have dinner to
gether again. Then at 3 that afternoon there will
be a Sunlight Serenade at which the Vesper
Choir will sing.

Mothers' Weekend, the junior class officers,
