The ASUO executive council

Alumni Recall Gala Canoe Fetes, Special Effects
Of Past Junior Weekends When Mill Race Flowed
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.
As part of that crowd, Miss Eth
el Stone, graduate of 1924, specifi
cally remembers the years that "we
had to sit on the banks—there were
no bleachers by the millrace then.”
Miss Stone, new editorial assistant
ior tne state system ot punncation,
was sure all the weekends have
been so good that she could not
pick an outstanding one.
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. Turnbull’s
leading recollection of Junior
