Alumni Recall Gala Canoe Fetes, Special Effects Of Past Junior Weekends When Mill Race Flowed By AJNII'A MULillHS After some deliberation, the five princesses for next weekend decid ed that either the prom or parade especially impressed them in the last two Junior Weekends. It took no time at all for six Ore gon alumni to reemember the best part of their weekends. They are unanimous; one even declared, “The canoe fete was Junior Weekend.” Lyle Nelson, a 1941 graduate who is now director of information for the University, especially remem bers the “Alice in Wonderland” weekend. Because he was “a little green freshman” the year of that tneme, jxeison tmmts ne may nave been easily impressed. “The balance between music and floats was exceptionally good,” ac cording to the graduate, once edi tor of the Emerald and Old Oregon. He explained how the orchestra was inside a huge shell across the millrace. It accompanied each float as it was let through a water screen into the crowd’s view.

Les Anderson, alumni secretary, didn’t have to go far back for his choice. It was “Springtime in Vi enna” in 1940 when he was presi dent of the freshman class. There is no doubt that the floats were the best part of Junior Weekends, ac cording to Anderson. He graduat ed in 1943 as ASUO president. “Something that can’t be dupli cated now,” is Mrs. G. T.
