“Oregon will have girl song

Tuesday evening by Jim Fenimore,
rally board chairman, ended much
speculation concerning the sea
sons rally personel.
Fenimore stressed that the
purpose in initiating the song
squad and in selecting an all male
yell group was to stimulate stu
dent interest and to obtain en
thusiastic student participation in
The men were selected for the
yell duties because of their great
er endurance and the girl’s group
^is slanted toward a more colorful
squad. Fenimore also emphasized
that there was never any inten
tion of restricting the girls parti
cipation but that the decision for
an all male yell squad was in
aended only to provide the stu
dents with the best leaders pos
sible for both songs and yells.
The five yell queens will never
act simultaneously with the yell
leaders but will have separate
appearances on the field. The ap
pearance of the girls will be a
signal to the rooting section that
a song is in order.
Select Song Queens
Yell queens were not present
at Portland last weekend only be
cause the board had not yet been
able to select them. No petitions
will be accepted for the five song
positions. However, open inter
viewing will be held tomorrow
afternoon and evening at the SU.

held from 3-5 Wednesday after
