Looking For a Silver Lining
The possibility of the first rain-drenched Junior Weekend in 57 years sent members of the Weekend
committee scurrying early this week to local weatherman H. C. Rinard to get the “scoop.” His forecast:

Jupe May Not Bless Weekend
by JIM WALLACE
For fifty-seven years now, com
mittee heads planning the spring
term festival known variously
through the years as “Junior Day,”
“University Day,” and now, “Junior
Weekend,” have had a man work
ing with their committee who has
never got his picture in the Em
erald, never got an activity point
for his efforts, but who, neverthe
less, assured the campus of a suc
cessful celebration.
This silent partner is old Jupe
Pluvius who has come around every
c year to smile brightly on the All
Campus picnic, the Float parade,
„ and the other Weekend events. Blit
this year some people think that
things look a little different and
that the drizzle that has character
ized spring term, ’48 may well con
tinue.
Mighty Rough Time
It’s not that old Jupe has sud
denly decided that the unbroken
string of 57 rainless Junior Week
ends is more than a school with a
Duck for a mascot should not ask
It’s just that old Jupe has beer
having a mighty rough time of ii
this spring, only making it arounc
for a few mid-week afternoons anc

worried people are asking, “Well,
is Jupe going to let lis down this
Junior Weekend?’’
Nobody knows for sure, but
hopes are rising since the return of
a special envoy sent by the Court
of Junior Weekend to the Court of
Jupiter Pluvius. The envoy report

Coeds to Swim
Into Dreamland
Twenty coeds will float into
“Dreamland” tonight when the
Amphibians present their water
ballet. The pageant, which begins
at 8 p. m. in the men’s pool, is
an annual event of Junior Week
end and will carry out this year’s
theme, “Storybook Wonderland.”
The program is in three parts:
“Moonland,” “Candyland,” and
“Bubbleland.” The individual num
bers have been designed to portray
various phases of the “Wonder
land” theme.
Clad in white bathing suits es
pecially designed for the ballet,
the women’s swimming honorary
will be featured in quartets and
group formations planned by Betsy
Moffett.
Miss Moffet, Janet Harris,
Larrie Harris, and Joan Carr will
present special duet numbers.
Jim Stanley, member of the
freshman swimming team, Willie
McCloud, member of the varsity
swimming team, and Lottie Berger
will perform special diving exhibi
tions.
The drama department aided the
group in lighting and stage efects.

special lighting.
All students may attend, no ad
mission will be chared, and only one
performance will be given.
Larrie Harris, freshman in lib
eral arts, and Joan Carr, freshman
in art, are co-chairmen of the
pageant. Miss Jeanette Masilionis,
instructor in physical education, is
faculty advisor.

march them into Eugene late to
morrow afternoon. Of course, the
envoy added, Jupe was a little dis
turbed over the irrelevant way a
sunny Saturday he sent to Eugene
on a trial run last weekend was
treated by law students and might
hold this against Junior Weekend.
It’s Ours Anyway
The law school’s attitude on this
was that Junior Weekend had been
stolen from them, anyway, so why
shouldn’t the jurists at least keep
the good weather ?

Better Foreign Policy,
Military Might Needed
In Dewey Peace Plan
by DON SMITH
A concrete program for lasting peace was given last
night by presidential aspirant Thomas E. Dewey before about
4000 Eugene townspeople and students at McArthur court.
A United States of Europe, encouraged by the use of the Mar
shall plan, declared the New York governor, should be the cor
nerstone of United States foreign policy
Seven points were stressed by
Dewey to obtain world peace, in
addition to building up the military
strength of the United States to
the point where no nation dare at
tack this country.
Chinese Friendship Needed by 11.S.
Material help to China through
the funds allotted by congress, is
the action necessary, the presiden
tial hopeful believed, to regain the
friendship of the Asia nation and to
stop the flow of communism there.
A first rate intelligence service,
determined efforts to combat com
munist propaganda in the United
States, and bi-partisian action on
foreign policy, were other points
stressed by Dewey.
Better Foreign Policy Management
“Today’s world crises must not
become war crises,” he stated
“A better management of United
States foreign affairs is necessary
to avoid war. The first step,” con
tinued Dewey, “is to decide ob
jectives of the United States for
eign policies.”
The world is confused, according
to Dewey, as to the policy of the
United States. The main trouble
with American foreign policy is
not that there have been so many
bungles, but that there has been no
policy at all.
“It is time for the United States
to get a policy every human being
in the world can know and under
stand,” he declared. “The objec
