moved from clothing. The only clue
was a pocket watch containing the
name plate of a Portland Jeweler.
An immediate check with all
fraternities was made by Hawk.
"The lack of personal identification
and the type of clothing described
to me suggested the possibility of
a senior ride," Hawk said. The fra
ternities reported none of their
members were missing.

Pep Band OK'ed
By Committee
Decision to form an all-student
pep band to perform at rallies was
made by a special music planning
committee meeting Thursday.
Members of the University band
will form the nucleus of the pep
band, the committee decided, but
all interested students who can
play an instrument are urged to
leave their name, phone number
and type of instrument they play
in room 309 of the Student Union,
the rally board office. If no one
there, they are to slip the infor
mation under the door on a piece
of paper.
The committee was composed of
Rill Carey. ASUO president: Ray
Hawk, director of men's affairs;
Howard Lemons, athletic business
manager: Theodore Kratt, head of
the music department; Robert
Vagner, associate professor of mu
sic; Col. E. L. Bruns, head of the
military and air science depart
ment: and Ron Symons, rally
board chairman.
Their discussion centered around
the problem of a band for rallies.
It was agreed that it was too hard
for the regular band to play for
such affairs and so the pep band
was decided upon.
According to Symons, the band
will be on a strictly volunteer
basis. A list of available players
will be made and they will be
called on before each rally. The j
emphasis will be on spirit, instead
of perfection in performance, Sym
ons said.
Persons interested in the pep
rally band are requested by the
lally board to leave their name,
address ar.d type of instrument
played at room 309 Student Union
or notify Bob Glasson. band chair
man. at 5-9120 or 5-9521.
'Amazing Objects in Returned Books'
Says University Library Assistant
By Donna IJndbeek
“It's amazing the things we find
in returned books,” says Dorothy
Itandall, library assistant at the
circulation desk of the University
“Recently a woman, who was a
town patron, called early in the
morning to report the loss of a five
dollar bill. The money and some
books she was returning to the
library were lying on her desk.
After she returned the books, she
noticed that the money was gone.
We looked through the books and
found the bill,” Miss Randall re
On another occasion, Miss Ran
dall found several note cards in a
book being returned by a graduate
student. Later when she saw the
boy she asked him if he had missed
[ the cards. Indeed he had, he was
looking everywhere for them, since
they were necessary for his work.
letter Found
One student reported that he
had lost a letter containing a check
made out to his insurance com
pany. After a sthort search through
the books he had returned earlier,
the letter was found.
Citing the above instances, Miss
Randall cautioned students to leaf
through a book before returning it.
Student body cards, checks, small
bills, letters, and valuable papers
are frequently left in books. An
effort is made to look through each
book before it is returned to the
shelves, but due to the large
amount of books handled at the
circulation desk, this is not always
1 possible.
Every effort is made to return
such objects to their rightful own
ers. If the letters that are found
are stamped they are mailed. If !
they have a return address on the ;
outside, but no stamp they are rc- i
turned to their owners.
Unapproved Objects I'sed
Various unapproved objects are
used as bookmarks. Miss Randall
laughed as she said, "Sometimes
I think the students use bacon
rinds for bookmarks. Actually we
find pencils, matches, toothpicks,
gum and cigarettes."
"It's always a good practice to
write your name in your own
books," Miss Randall advises stu
dents. "Often personal copies of
books are returned to the circula
tion desk with no name in them.”
Theme for the dance was “Ra
zor Rollick. ” The ballroom was
decorated with barber poles, pic
tures of animated razors, shaving
mugs and shaving brushes.
During intermission Skull and
Dagger, sophomore men's honor
ary, tapped Karl Harshbargcr,
speech major, for membership.
Phi Kta Sigma, freshman men's
scholastic honorary, presented a
plaque to Ron Lowell, sophomore
in liberal arts, for outstanding
grades achieved during his fresh
man year.
Intermission entertainment was
provided by musical numbers pre
sented by a group consisting of
Larry Smith. Bud Oringdolp, Hack
Sharer and Nancy Byran. "Car

monologue, was delivered by Karl
