In a letter to Dr. Dan E. Clark,
chairman of the assembly commit
tee, the Oregon senator, a former
dean of the law school, said:
“It is a great pleasure for me
to make this donation to the Erb
Memorial Union not only out of

also because I think a Student Un

"What’s in a name,” wrote Shakespeare. A name may mean
a lot to pretty Lloyde Hough, English major at the University.
Lloyde, who is viying for the title of "Little Colonel,” may
find her name significant when the winner is announced at
the Military Ball, Saturday night.
As a child, she was an avid»reader of the “Little Colonel”

Yankee, hailing originally from the
State of Washington, this slight,
dark-eyed coed is a sharp contrast
from the blonde granddaughter of
the Kentucky colonel.
Feted as Portland Rose Festi
val Queen in 1946, Lloyde rode on
the blue-ribbon Portland float in
the Pasadena Tournament of Roses
parade last January. She enjoyed
the Rose Bowl game afterwards,
but expressed the desire that an
Oregon eleven would be there next
January to make a better showing
than did USC.
Captain of Company A, which
she termed “A-l”, Lloyde will be
presented to her troops Thursday

Contest to Start
Dads' Program
Dads’ Day invitations will be
sent out Thursday when a letter
appears in the Emerald inviting
j dads to the campus February 14
| and 15. A contest to see which
I house can invite all of its fathers

an envelope addressed to the father
of the fellow or gal, bring it to the
Emerald business office where a
representative of the Dads’ Day
committee will take over. The
house which brings in invitations
from all of its members first will
be the winner. Four prizes will be
given, two to men’s and two to
women’s living groups.
Letters Tell Plans
Letters will be sent to each liv
ing organization president explain
ing the procedure and objectives of
the contest.
The letters of invitation will be
mailed from the Emerald office,
but individuals must provide the
stamps, Miss Kletzing said.
