Full Schedule Ahead
Although speakers face a full
schedule of 00 to 75 engagements

UO Men Don't
Call It Living

What are men without women?
Dateless! That’s what the men
polled today said, when asked for
their opinion concerning the new
restrictions on freshman women
pledges. The women, blushing,
modest creatures, for the most
part approved of this addition to
their already sheltered existence.
A1 Riasanovsky—senior in libe
ral arts—“A darn silly idea!”
Donna Beddle—freshman in libe
ral arts—“I can’t see that it will
do anyone any good.”
A1 Benson—freshman in busi
ness administration—“I think that
it’s rough on the men, but good
for the women.”
Jack Gitchell—sophomore in
business administration—“I think
that they’re nuts!”
Anne Graham—sophomore in
liberal arts—-“Students need some
type of guidance during their first
Pete Quinn—freshman in busi
ness administration—“A poor idea.
Freshmen girls only get out two
nights a week now and the new
rules give them even less time
with the boys.”
Joanne Hite—sophomore in lib
eral arts—“I think that the rules
are pretty fair. The study rules
are good. I think that they should
be able to go to dinner at their
houses at least once a week.”
Jack Reading—senior in busi
ness administration—“I think that
they are too stringent. While
dorm relationships should be held
up, I think that they should be
allowed more time at their sorori

Plaid, plaid, and more plaid is
adding a definitely Scotch look
to the campus this fall—and a
mighty smart look too.
Finely pleated all-round plaid
skirts are snowing themselves as
top favorites. Because in most
cases the pleats are baked in, there
is no chance of their “sitting out.”
Plaid belts with shoes to match
are also top news. They make
last year’s skirt and sweater look
like a completely new outfit, and
what could be more practical for
the college girl on a budget?
Plaid blouses and coats and
plaid trim on suits, coats, and
dresses are also new and smart.
Not to be outdone, clothes for
the male segment of the popula
tion are turning to a new and gay
look with not only plaid shirts,
but plaid jackets and sport coats
being featured in the “latest fall
collections” and on the campus.
Librarians To Elect
Vice-president and secretary
will be elected at a meeting of all
house librarians at 4 p. m. today
in the browsing room of the Stu
Crusade for Freedom scrolls
had received signatures from less
than 40 per cent of the Univer
sity student body, as of 3 p. m,
Wednesday, ASUO President Barry;
The drive is aimed at securing,
pledges from a full 100 per cent'
of the students. By Wednesday
only 1,900 of an estimated 5,000
students had signed the scrolls.
Several living organizations
have promised donations for the
Voice of Freedom radio station
in Western Europe. A total of $15
has been turned in to the ASUO
office thus far.
Restaurants blame television for
a seven per cent drop in business.
Some people seem to be making
TV a steady diet.
Lot of folks don’t know enough
to learn as much as they lead their
friends to think they know.
Seventy per cent of the mem
bers of t prison band were paroled
before their terms were up. Even '
in the pen, peace is a taiessing.
95 Tailored to a college man’s taste—oxford
button-downs. Casual, comfortable . ; ; non
chalant—no wonder they’re the most popular
shirts on campus. Van Heusen button-downs
come in whites and colors . . . with average
length collar for that always correct look. Be an
Oxfordian with Van Heusen button-downs.
A new shirt free if your Van Heusen shrinks
out of size.
