Vaudeville Plans Begin Buzzing
Enthusiasm is developing in campus living organizations as they
form plans for their acts in Oregon’s All-Campus Vaudeville show,
April 15, with a meeting of house representatives scheduled for to
night, 6:30 at the Alpha Delta Pi house.
At this meeting Valma Sneilstrom, program chairman, will explain
the requirements for judging and other details.
Letters were sent to all house presidents Saturday explaining the
show, which will serve the dual purpose of entertainment and oppor
tunity to reveal hidden talent, and a contribution to a worthwhile cause,
since all proceeds from the 50 cent ticket sales have been scheduled
for the World Student Service Fund.
A reprint of the letter follows:
“Dear House President,
“Preparation for Oregon’s all-campus vaudeville show are gathering
momentum. This is your show and each organization will enter an act
in competition for the three permanent trophies offered for first, second,
and third prize.
“Entries may consist of skits, dances, magic acts, singing, slapstick
routines, and so forth. . . . There will be preliminary eliminations, with
the final judging in McArthur court Friday, April 15, the date of the

Eugene, and from door to door throughout the residential districts. The
funds will go to the campus-supported charity, the World Student Ser

band, is in review. The Little
Colonel, chosen from nine can
didates, will be announced at the
dance Saturday night.
"I try to live up to my name,”
says Little Captain Gay Williams,
who is better known as Shirley to
her professors. Judging from the
activities of this five foot two and
one-half inch junior with dark
brown eyes and auburn hair, one
might say she succeeds.
People, horseback-riding, and
swimming are her chief interests.
A native of Olympia, Washington,
she says the salt water of Puget
Sound beats everything for swim

past four summers Gay has done
clerical work at the state house in
As house manager of Delta Gam
ma, it's Gay’s duty to see that ev
erything is running smoothly. She
is also known as the girl who sends
the gentlemen home at 10:30. “I’m
famous for that,” she smiled.
With plans for teaching vocal and
instrumental music in secondary
school, Gay is now majoring in mu
sic. She is corresponding secretary
of Mu Phi Epsilon, national music
honorary. This year she was
awarded the annual scholarship
from the organization's alumnae.
Even with the threat of finals
drawing closer, Gay is not worried.
Final week is the best time, she be
lieves. “You’re completely on your

another after each test is over!’’

forced to register late, and late reg
