Dear Mom:
Do you realize that Junior Weekend, with accompany
ing Mothers’ Weekend, is coming up in only two weeks? This
is my personal plea to you to try your very best to visit our
campus May 7, 8, and 9 and be royally entertained at this, the
very biggest event of the year.
These three days, packed full of wonderful events,
promise to be the most super ever and they’re all for you! The
campus is buzzing with big plans and I can hardly wait to show
you around.
Just to give you an idea of what goes on during this
glorious weekend—
It all begins Friday night with the All-Campus Sing,
following dinner in the living organizations. The whole campus
has devoted a lot of time and practice toward winning the cups
awarded for the best performance, and I'm sure you’ll enjoy
hearing all the songs. Also, coronation of the Junior Weekend
Queen will take place during the evening. This will—be par
ticularly exciting since this is the first year that no one will
know who is Queen until the weekend gets underway.
Next on the agenda is the all-University luncheon
which is held on the lawn on the old campus. There'll be many
things going on throughout the luncheon, including “dunking”
of violators of Junior Weekend traditions by Order of the O
men; tapping of new members of Scabbard and Blade. Friars,
and Mortar Board; and the Queen’s Processional. Oh, yes,
there’ll be music furnished by Joe Ingram and his band. And
count on beautiful decorations for the event.
The Mothers’ Tea sponsored by the F.ugene Mothers
Club will take place after the luncheon at Gerlinger Hall.
Here you may relax over a cup of tea and chat with the other
mothers. 1 told yon this would be a busy day.
The float parade with an entry from each living organ
ization will begin winding its way around the campus at 4 p. m.
and after passing the judges’ stands at Johnson hall, will con
tinue up the street past Gerlinger so that all the mothers still
at the tea will get to see them. “Storybook Wonderland” is the
theme of Junior Weekend; so the floats promise to be very
After dinner, we'll all be getting ready for the Prom,
the big dance of the year. There'll be a balcony lounge for all
the mothers (including comfortable couches) so that you can
enjoy the music and entertainment in complete relaxation. At
intermission you’ll be served punch and cookies and we’ll come
upstairs to talk with you and watch the entertainment, which
will include awarding of the Float Parade cup, the Koyl and
Gerlinger cups to the outstanding junior man and woman, and
tapping by Druids.
After church Sunday we’ll have dinner together again.
Then at 3 that afternoon there will be a Sunlight Serenade
held in the beautiful open-air auditorium of the Music school.
So you can see, Mom, there is a big weekend awaiting
you. Joanne Frydenlund, general chairman of Mothers’ Week
end, the junior class officers, and those working with them
have been busy making preparations to fill the three days with
a series of memorable events. Be sure to let me know if you
aren’t able to make reservations anywhere (Eugene will be a
busy town that weekend) and I’ll contact Nancy Petersen who’s
taking charge of the housing problems.
They’re planning to have some of the mothers stay
at the women’s living organizations—some of the fellows’
mothers, too—so you may get a touch of the life of a coed
those two nights.
The whole campus is in a state of excitement about
this big weekend and I’m anxious to show you all the events
that are planned. And in addition to everything else, we’ve ar
ranged for the best weather in Oregon’s history. Let me know
right away when you’ll be down.
With Love,
Your sons and
daughters at Oregon
