M/ss Mary Lou Hill
> Welsh-born Mary Lou Hill is the fifth member of the Junior Weekend
/ court. The name Of the girl who will rule over the weekend of fes
' tivities will be announced at the All-Campus Sing.
Former Homecoming Queen Likes to Cook;
Looks Forward to "Biggest" Weekend
Mary Lou Hill, Kappa Kappa Gamma from California, will
don her royal gown next Friday night in hopes that she will
be the one to rule “Story Book Wonderland.”
Like Princess Mary Joy Hamm, Miss Hill was born abroad.
Her parents met in a little town in Wales and it was in that
country that Mary Lou was born.
Maybe this Welsh ancestry has something to do with her
unusual weather taste. She says,
“fog is one of the things I like
about California” and “we’ve al
ways liked fog and rain.”
Looking Forward
Birthplace, Aberystwyth; home.
San Jose; and here in Eugene Miss
Hill is looking forward to next
Friday when Oregon’s biggest
weekend' begins. Anyway, she
thinks it’s the “biggest thing of
the year—except for football sea
In '45, she was football’s ruler
as Homecoming Queen. The game
is her favorite because “it seems
to have more brainwork and is so
exciting to watch.”
And She Cooks
Cooking and tapestry weaving
also interest her. The five foot,
nine inch junior especially likes to
make Welsh dishes, “learned from
my mother.”
Although she’s an education ma
jor, Miss Hill comments, “I doubt
if I will ever teach.” Explanation
of this could be the Phi Gamma
Delta Pin she wears.
The “kind of green-eyed” prin
cess claims the “only interesting
parts of my life have been with my
family.” Her father was a com
mercial artist but enrolled in USC
to study optometry. Because he

smoking on the old campus, walk

lawns, sitting on the senior bench
—unless you’re a senior, and neg
lecting to greet each fellow stu
dent when strolling down “Hello
walk” between Fenton and Villard
halls. Membership is not coveted,
however, by loyal, tradition-con
scious Webfoots.

Queen Dudley Walton
No knitter of argyles, he, Dudley
Walton, to be crowned Queen Dud
1 of the Law School Weekend today
on the steps of Fenton hall, lays no
claim whatsoever to domestic capa
bilities. With true royal dignity he
declared that he was wearing out
his only pair of argyles, but he
didn't know if anyone was knitting
him another pair.
“Being a member or royalty is a
completely new experience for me,”
lisped Dud breathleessly, but his
thick-lashed brown eyes were lim
pid with anticipation about assum
ing his regal position.
Heinous Blow
The mustached senior in law, th©
choice of his school for highest rec
ognition, revealed that he was cho
sen by a heinous stab in the back—•
secret ballot. Dud said that when
his family received the news of his
selection, they writhed in abject
horror. However, he continued,
they have now regained most sem
blances of sanity and are resigned
to accepting the whim of chanc©
that darkened their home.
After graduation Dudley, a pe
tite brownette with staring eyes,
asserted that he doesn’t want to
do "a single exciting thing. Th©
quieter, the better.” As for travel,
the lovely queen expressed a desir©
to “run barefooted through his own

The queen was dressed in a love
