The swimming show, an annual
affair since 1943, was first held

cause of the crowds, the scene
changed to the men’s pool, and

performances will be presented.
In 1947 the girls depicted an
“Evening in Paris” with the pool
decorated as a Paris night club,
and last year, "Story Book Won
derland” was presented with
scenes from “Candyland,” “Moon
land,” and “Bubbleland.”
Such themes as “Under the Big
Drip,” “A Sailor’s Dream” (with
a tropical island, a waterfall, and
mermaids as the principal set
tings), “The Story of a Life Guard

Smiths Dominate NewPigger's Guide
Oh, to have a name like Smith
has been the wish of nearly every
one sometime or other in his life,
but according to the editors of the
1948-49 Pigger’s Guide there are
already too many Smiths in the
world, or at least at the Univer

There are 73 persons now regis
tered whose last name is Smith of

there is a Donald K., a Donald L.,

Leaving the realm of the similar
names, here are some individual
names which brought a good laugh.
There is registered at the regis

Also listed with the registrar is a
Daphne Paradise.
However, these peculiarities
seemed to have been overlooked by
the Pigger’s Guide staff for they
were not listed.

Extension Nets
Vets Day's Pay
Tlie board of deans decided
last week to officially extend the
final examination period mitit
Saturday, December 18, in an
effort to secure for student vet
erans their complete ('.I checks
for December.
This change in the fall term
schedule has been submitted to the
Veterans Administration in Port-,
land by H. A. Bork, comptroller of
the Oregoii state system of higher
education. No word has been re
ceived indicating that the VA ha3
accepted or rejected this extension.
' Under VA rulings, a veteran at
tending school will lose one day
subsistence pay for each day he is
on vacation over a maximum 15
days. The original fall term sched
ule provided for a 16-day vacation.
Thus, vets would lose one day’s pay.
Some veterans, who are low on
eligibility, have cancelled their sub
sistence checks for the original va
cation period and will apply this
time to winter term. These stud
ents will not be affected by the ac
ceptance or rejection by the VA of
the board of dean decision, accord
ing to J. D. Kline, assistant regis
The deans decided that, since
some examinations were scheduled
for Saturday, the final-week sched
ule as printed, in the catalogue and
the class schedule did not reflect
the true situation.
On December 18, examinations
will be given in ail courses not cov
ered by the Monday-to-Friday sch
edule and in courses in which there
are conflicts. These will include two
courses in the education school,
Problems in Secondary Education
and Seminar in Audio-Visual, and
a few courses in other schools.
The problem of the 16-day vaca
tion was first called to the Univer
sity’s attention by the VA. At that
lime they suggested that some
change in the schedule be made in
order to give the veterans their
complete checks.
The board of deans also discussed
the extension of next fall term but
dates for that term are now tenta
