Cooley House Falls for Starlet


* s


In a spontaneous outburst of
virile admiration for a feminine
figure supreme, the men of Cooley
,House have signed a petition nam-
ing Joan Diener, Hollywood and
Broadway starlet, "the girl we
would most like to study .. .with."
The "Diener for House Queen"
movement got started when two
Cooley roommates, Norm Bagu-
ley, '52, and Chuck Defoe, '52,
spotted her picture in a magazine.
BAGULEY SAID, "I decided im-
mediately that a shot of Miss Die-
ner was what Cooley House need-
ed for a spring pick-me-up." The
letter, asking for a pin-up and
conferring the title, was written
and circulated for signatures with-
out further delay. Defoe asserted
that "an overwhelming majority
of the house signed the communi-
cation after only a quick peek at
the picture."
"We fell head over heels for
that engaging smile," Dimitri
Kasacheff, '52E, said with an
engaging chuckle.
Adding to the appeal of Miss
Diener's gratifying smile is a gen-
erously proportioned figure (bust
40, waist 21, hips 36). She wears a
specially built bathing suit.
COOLEY HOUSE was not alone
in its admiration. A follow-up story
in the next issue of the magazine
stated, "hundreds of letters pour-
ed in from universities (an entire
Brown fraternity), overseas GI's
and sailors."
Among the titles heaped on
Miss Diener were "Miss 40 by
21" and "Miss U.S. Army." One
Air Force officer even volunteer-
ed to paint a life-size picture of
her on his plane.
Currently appearing in Broad-
way's "Season in the Sun," Miss
Diener has also had movie, tele-
vision and nightelub experience.
Her celebrated figure, husky sing-
ing voice and six years of training
in dramatics make her a triple-
threat performer.
Informed of the terrific demand
for her photographs, she said sim-
ply, "I'm underpaid."

ICC Runs,
Six Houses
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This i the
fourth and last of a series on co-
operative living at the University. The
series is being published in connec-
tion with National Cooperative Week
which concludes today.)
The guiding spirit of the Uni-
versity's six co-op houses is the
Inter-Cooperative Council, Inc.
Founded in 1944 to coordinate1
and crystallize the separate efforts
of the houses, the council has made;
democratic control its fundamentali
** *
EACH CO-OP HOUSE is repre-
sented on the council on the basis
of one delegate for every 10 peo-
ple. The board, in turn, elects of-
ficers and appoints the various
committee chairmen.
ICC committees handle fi-
nances, housing, sanitation,
alumni affairs and publish the
ICC journal, "The Cooperator."
A separate committee, the inter-
house purchasing fund commit-
tee, handles the group purchas-
ing project.
Present officers of the council
are David L. Smith, '1A, presi-
dent; Janina Krantz, '52, vice-
president; Jon Frane, '53, secretary
and Norton Armour, '5BAd, ac-
The individual houses also op-
erate under democratic prin-
ciples. Each member, whether he
is a boarder or a full-time resi-
dent, has one vote. All house
matters are put to a vote before
anything is decided.
The council, which has been in-
corporated under state law as a
non-profit organization, prides it-
self on its high level of financial
and administrative security and its
efficient system of operation.
University administrators give
lavish credit to the co-ops for their
many achievements. They feel that
the students living cooperatively
often gain an intellectual integra-
tion which enables them to derive
from University life much more
than classroom knowledge.
Applications for admission to co-
ops are now being accepted. Stu-
dents desiring information may
contact the personnel chairman at
1017 Oakland or by calling 7211.

hour before my midnight deadline,

Editor's Talk
On Reporting
To EndSeries
Max Ascoli, editor and publisher
of The Reporter magazine, will
close the fourth annual series of
University journalism lectures with
a talk at 3 p.m. tomorrow in Rm.
1025 Angell Hall.
Speaking on "Focal Reporting,"
Ascoli wil discuss his experiments
through The Reporter to give back-
ground and perspective to the
news. He founded the fortnightly
magazine of facts and ideas in
A former professor of jurispru-
dence in universities of his native
Italy, Ascoli emigrated to the
United States in 1931 to escape
Mussolini's regime. He became a
citizen of this country in 1939.
In 1933 he was appointed to the
graduate faculty of the New School
for Social Research, in New York,
serving as dean of that institution
in 1940-41. He resigned from the
position to promote cultural rela-
tions with Latin America for the
American government as Coordi-
nator of Inter-American Affairs
until 1943.
His political philosophy books
are best known in the United
States. They include "Intelligence
in Politics" (1936), "The Fall of
Mussolini" (1948) and "The Power
of Freedom" (1948).

Roaring bonfires, slashed tires
and tear gas marred the campus
scene this week as riots broke out
at two colleges.
At Ohio State, eleven patrol cars
full of policemen couldn't snuff
out a riot that reached mass pro-
portions after starting as a "tra-
ditional" water fight between two

the battle was on. Police, who
hurried to the scene, were greet-
ed by buckets of water that
'temporarily put them out of
Even tear gas couldn't stop the
fracas. According to one witness,
"the students cried and rubbed
their eyes but came right back
In retaliation, they cut the tires
of the patrol wagons, let the air
out of the tires and plugged up
exhaust pipes. Several police cars
were towed away.
The studentnewspaper blamed
the whole affair on the Univer-
sity's affiliated students. "We're

MEANWHILE, on the campus
of Rennselaer Polytechnic Insti-
tute at Troy, N.Y., a milling crowd
tied up city traffic for more than
two hours.
The whole affair was blamed on
the draft and finals by the Insti-
tute's president.
"The students were all tensed
up," he asserted, "and had to re-
lax their anxieties."

of Washington, Raymond Allen,

ROUTED OUT of the bunk
three hours later, we were intro-
duced to Camp Stoneman chow,
which was the only disappoint-
ment of our stay at this camp. It
was even worse than the stuff
dished out by our old company
at Camp Polk, and that's going
some. But there wasn't much
choice-each mess hall fed 5,000
men per meal.
The rest of our five-day stay
at the post was spent in waiting
for orientation lectures and
clothing issues. But occasional-
ly we pulled a detail such as
KP or policing up the area,
which was necessary to keep
the camp running. The barracks
were so old and the floors so
worn that we couldn't use much
water in cleaning because the
water might dissolve them away.
Rumors had been flying like
mad ever since we left Polk, and
although our orders specified
FECOM (Far East Command) as
our destination, that. could have
meant any of a dozen places other
than Korea.
But during our orientation
lectures we learned part of the
bitter truth-the little card on
the stage announcing the lec-
tures said "Orientation lecture
The lectures lasted six hours,
but were far from dull. They were
given by a detail of intelligent,
witty officers and non-coms who
knew how to throw in a joke or
two where it counted. And inter-
spersed in their lectures were
skits and movies, so the time went
Part of the lecture preached
typical Army propaganda about
Communism, lowered to a sixth-
grade level, and recent lessons
taught by the Korean war. After
each session, the "interlocuter,"
a red-headed, mustachioed cap-
tain, thoughtfully played a record
of "So Long, It's Been Good To
Know You."

ONE MORNING, during a reg-
ular company formation, a few
names were read off, mine among
them. Then we were told that we
would be shipped to Fort Ord,
Calif., for additional training.
And with no further ado or ex-
planation, about a sixth of the
Camp Polk replacements were
wrisked into ancient Army buses
and hauled the 150 miles south to
Fort Ord, home of the Sixth Di-
