Some Real NiceiBreaa ana Butter
(Editor’s Note: We would humbly say “a good guest makes for a
better host” in answer to this editorial which appeared in the Wash
ington State College Evergreen. It was written by Editor Charlotte
Friel and sent our way by Student Union Director Frank Noffke.)
Their spirit is stupendous. It wasn t their fault their team
didn’t win Saturday. And besides the concern exhibited for
their own activities, the University of Oregon students who
played hosts to the 30 or more WSC football fans and union
building representatives this weekend, were gracious and hos
pitable beyond normal conception.
We were extended every courtesy in the books, despite the
fact that a homecoming football game played second fiddle to
the dedication of a student union building that university stu
dents and alums have been working toward and counting on
for 27 years. No group of people could have been busier than
the Union Board and the ASUO officers who still found time
to take us on personally conducted tours of the new building
and to have special luncheons for us on last minute notice.
And it wasn’t just the “officials”. Students themselves in the
living groups where we stayed went out of their way to help
us get situated and make our weekend complete.
Yes, their spirit is tremendous. Their union building is beau
tiful. Their display signs were masterpieces of “artistry in
rhythm.” Their noise rally would have scared the Chinese
Commies out of Korea. Their pep at the game should have
spurred any team to victory. Still they were excellent hosts.
We were very impressed.
The Stuff Between the Yellow Covers
Pig-goers’ Guide day is almost as exciting as Oregana day.
The little books with all the names are on sale this week at the
main desk of the student union building; and even at the in
creased price of 40 cents the book is worth having.
There are some innovations you might notice after you’ve
checked to see if your name was spelled right.
For example, the Pledge Song starts out “Fir Oregon,” un
doubtedly a tribute to the Oregon evergreen.
And the reason you want to go back to Oregon, the Guide
says, is to go “back to some of the money I blew.” Which may
be the correct wording of the song, but not the one generally
The FLOWKRFONE is 4-6244. A number that faces the
reader at the bottom of each right-hand page.
And for students wishing to-make quick get aways from the
campus, on page 84 are the plane and train schedules.
And naturally there are several dozen people who had the
bad luck that Elmarie Wendel had, who’s name came out just
barely recognizable as Elmarie WenDel. And many of the art
education students would prefer to be listed as seniors in Ar
chitecture and Allied Arts, but instead have a simple 4E fol
lowing their names, giving them to the education school.
But with several thousand names to handle it's remarkable
that a guide could be put out with as few errors as are made in
such a brief time.
Remember, at a large Texas university, the student council
attempted to put out a student directory, but lost $2,000 on the
deal when students showed little enthusiasm over the book
when it was delivered in the middle of spring term.
So a bouquet of Emerald E’s to Editor Virginia Wright and
her staff, who have worked like dogs these last few weeks to
publish a handy little book; who still have to listen to the com
plaints of students who got their names misspelled, and who
have to read editorials that quibble over a lost "a" in "fair."—

goes with great enthusiasm to Mimi Jones and other YW
CA-YMCA members planning the student-faculty fire
sides which will be held this year at faculty homes. A
great step in higher education.

All Good Girls Go to Bed
By 11 p.m. at Oregon
■■■— — "■■From Stan Turnbull
We don’t know any Latin, but
we have a hunch about what the
motto of this institution (taken
in any sense of the word) means
—“Mens Agitat Molem,” or
“make some stupid rule.”
The most recent example of
small-time thinking (thinking be
ing hardly the right word) here
abouts is the decision to crack
down on an old rule prohibiting
telephone calls into women’s liv
ing organizations after 11 p.m.
A small point ? Sure, but a real
example of small-caliber logic.
Coast to Coast:
Things may not be so good at
Oregon but at the University of
North Carolina southern gentle
men are carrying things quite a
distance. It appears that the
dance committee ruled that any
girl leaving a campus dance in
tending to return must be es
corted by a chaperone during her
entire stay from the dance hall.
While North Carolina is sup

away-from-dances, The Midland,
paper of Midland' College in Ne
braska, has started an all-out
campaign to suppress Commun
ism on college campuses. Hoping
to start a national movement, the
paper urges university men and
women throughout the land to
“join hands. Let our hands, so
joined, form an insurmountable
barrier to stop, now, those ten

Where freedom of the college
press is not considered so precious
as it is at Oregon, the Michigan
State News is resuming publica
tion with a full-time adviser, af
ter being suspended this summer.
The suspension of publication was
brought about by the editorial
criticism aimed at the Wolverine
Boys’ State, a citizenship insti
tute under the sponsorship of the
American Legion. The News ob
jected to “militaristic methods”
and particularly to a mock trial
of an alleged Communist at the
institute. At the time of suspen
sion it was announced the paper
would be put under strict college
departmental supervision when
it resumed publication in the fall.
An editorial in the first issue
termed the suspension of the
summer paper a "thing of the
The rule has lain, rightfully,
asleep for years—at least as far
as sotorities are concerned. Now
everybody gets to suffer alike.
One wonders just what is the
inherent biological difference be
tween the women at the Univer
sity of Washington, as an exam
ple, who may stay out until 11:30
—and the girls at the University
of Oregon who may not even re
ceive a phone call after 11.
•If a girl is in bed, she doesn’t
get up to answer the phone unless
it’s important. But if she’s up,
why in the name of the home of
the brave and land of the free
shouldn’t she answer the phone?
Or did we miss a rule that says
all U of O girls must be in bed by
11? Tliat’d be real ducky, too,
Possibly we should have a sepa
rate counselor to tuck each one
to bed and stand by during the
night to safeguard her if she has
to get up.
This is undoubtedly a trade
secret, but the upside-down line
giving the name of a local flower
shop in a Piggers’ Guide ad is up
side-down on purpose. Clever.
Speaking of the Piggers’ Guide
the first thing we did when we
bought ours was look up our
name. Again this year they have
n’t made a mistake and put an
asterisk by it. There must be
some other explanation.
