VOL. XIII. EUGENE, OREGON, SATURDAY. MARCH 2. 1912. No. 35 II. 0. MUSIC SCHOOL GIVES SUCCESSFUL RECITAL IN VILUUtD EIGHTEEN STUDENTS OF VOICE AND PIANO PERFORM TO LARGE AUDIENCE INTEREST IS KEPT KEEN THROUGHOUT Lois Powell, Bessie Hendershott, Har old Humbolt, and Albert Gillette Were Favorites. The public recital given by the students of the University School of Music Thursday evening in Villard Hall proved to be one of the most en joyable recitals ever given by that school, as attested by the enthusiasm of the large crowd in attendance. In all eighteen people performed, but the program had been so cleverly ar ranged that the interest was kept con dant throughout it all; the introduc tion of men vocalists at psychological moments saved whatever tiresome sit uations might have arisen. Undoubtedly the favorites of the evening were Mr. Albert Gillette, Mr. Harold Humbert, Mdss Bessie Hender shott, and Miss Lois Powell—all vocal ists. Mesrs. Gillette and Humbert possess rich baritone voices and sang their songs in a pleasing manner. Miss Hendershott sang in high so prano voice that seemed to be as flex ible as she wished it to be. Miss Pow ell’s number was probably enjoyed most. Her voice of high soprana tim bre possessed an unusually pleasing quality and her interpretation of Bemberg’s waltz was most finished. The others deserve special mention also. Ruth Dickey promises to de velope into a piaonist of worth; Maud Beals’ contralto voice showed up well in Burleigh’s “Jean”; Emo Hen dershott interpreted a Liszt number with credit; Leona Bish displayed en two German songs by Franz. Lucile Yoran sang “My Ain Folk”; Lloyd Casebeer played two piano numbers; Florence Avery sang a flower song cycle of three numbers in good so prano voice; Lena Newton played a Schubert number with creditable in terpretation; Alma Noon sang well two german songs by Franz; Laale Abrams surprised the audience with her rendention of a Grieg number on the piano. Miss Abrams has hereto fore appeared in violin solos. Jesse Fariss played two piano solos in her usual painstaking manner; Edna Mil ler sang Chamenade’s “Summer” with good voice; Alma Payton’s sweet voice showed to advantage in a boat song; and Ruth Davis showed ability in her rendition of “Humoresque,” by Rachmaninoff. Miss Nell Murphy and Miss Ruth Davis acted in the capacity of accom panists. CANOE ENTHUSIASTS WILL MEET MONDAY IN DEADY With the arrival of Spring there has been much activity among the canoe enthusiasts and haunters of the mill-race, and to materialize it all, a meeting of the Canoe Club will be held Monday, at 4 o’clock, in Dr. Schmidt’s room, to decide upon a membership limit, and discuss plans for the erec tion of a boathouse on the banks of the mill-race, adjacent to the Univer sity campus.

Moore, president, Flora Dunham, secretary, Harold Young, treasurer. PROF YOUNG’S BULLETIN PRAISED MOST HIGHLY Prof. F. G. Young’s bulletin on “The Economics of Oregon’s Good Roads Problem,” published by the University some time ago, is attracting wide spread and favorable attention. Prof. Earnest F. Ayers, Highway Engineer at Oregon Agricultural Col lege, in a letter to Prof. Young, says that he wishes every voter could be given a copy of the bulletin, as it would throw much light on the numer ous initiative measures coming up for consideration soon. C. E. Spencer, master granger and chairman of the committee on legisla tive measures, writes in highest praise of the article and is arranging to have a copy of it sent to every granger in the state. The Portland Cement Con tracting Company of Portland, has asked for a copy, as have various other institutions, companies, and in dividuals in this state and abroad, who are recognizing its value as a treatise on the good roads situation. GIRLS PLAY BASKETBALL Juniors Take Seniors Into Camp In Hard Fought Game Full of Errors. The Women’s Basketball League got into action for a game Wednes day afternoon, in which the Juniors defeated the Seniors by a score of 16 to 10. The game might well have been styled a “comedy of errors,” since neither class had a full team and but one Junior played her reg ular position and neither team had practiced together. Numerous line fouls were called, and the spectators along the sidelines were at all times in danger. The next game between the Juniors and Sophomores will determine the championship and winners of the Hay ward cup. The Senior lineup was, center, Em ma Waterman (captain), forwards, Ruth Gibson, Neta Bartlett, guards, Mellissa Martin, Frieda Goldsmith. The Juniors were, center, Grace, Hartley, forwards, Maude Nail (cap tain), Carin Degermark, guards, Eva Roche, Edna Messenger. Dr. Stuart and Miss Thompson offi ciated. Y. M. C. A. BOOK EXCHANGE MAKES MONEY February was a banner business month for Charlie Koyl’s candy store, for the hungry campus folk consumed enough Hershey’s chocolate in various forms, as to leave a net profit of near ly ten dollars. Although the Y. M. C. A. general secretary is not contemplating any en largement of his retail trade, along other mercantile lines, he does prom ise the same courteous treatment, and even better service than has been dis pensed before. Y. W. C. A. SPEAKER TO BOOST EQUAL SUFFRAGE Miss Elizabeth Fox will talk on Wo man’s Suffrage Monday evening, March 4, from 8 to 9, in Dr. Shafer’s room. Miss Fox is an excellent speaker and those who wish to gain information concerning the suffrage question, will find this a good oppor tunity to do so. Everyone is invited. Notice—Senior Girls! There will be an important meet ing of the senior girls at 4 o’clock Tuesday, afternoon in Prof. Schmidt’s room. The purpose of the meeting is not announced, but several important questions will come up for discussion and it is important that all should at tend. OREGON WILL PLAY W. S. G. ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY NEXT WEEK PULLMAN GAME MAY BE HARD EST OF YEAR, IS OPINION OF FANS NORTHERN TEAM HAS IMPROVED GREATLY Lowry, Sampson, and Keinholtz Fast Rounding Into Shape—Will Star For Visitors. Monday and Tuesday night the Var sity meets W. S. C. on the local floor and will attempt to repeat the dose administered to the Pullman team two weeks ago. The game played with the Washington State men was one of the hardest games of the trip and the Var sity succeeded in winning 18 to 13. The reports from Pullman indicate that W. S. C. is a much different team than the one met by Oregon two weeks ago, and is out for both Ore gon games. Lowry and Sampson, the W. S. C. forwards, have been slow in getting into shape and have not hit their stride in shooting baskets, but if re ports are true, may upset the Oregon dope for two more victories. Kein holtz is one of the best stick-tight guards in the conference and with him to ride Jamison around the floor and their forwards in any kind of shape, the Varsity will have a hard time dis posing of the Washington farmers. The hopes of Oregon for a top rung on the basketball ladder hinges on these two games. Coach Hayward has little to say on the prospects other than the Varsity will have to show a burst of speed over their form in the Idaho games last week. The second team took the place of the Varsity last night and played the return game with the Harrisburg “Colts,” and from reports brought back by numbers of the scrubs, en countered lots of small town stuff in the form of an irate crowd and a quick getaway to the railroad station, the scrubs won 31 to 23, twenty points going to “Butch” Moore, who was the star of the evening. As a preliminary to the game Mon day night, the Longs captained by Bob Kellogg, and the Shorts under the leadership of Woo Sun, will battle for supremacy. Capt. Sun has a number of good men on his string, among them being Buford Jones, Claude Washburn, “Rough” Ryder, Harry Ly tle and Knickerbocker Bond, while Capt. Kellogg is pinning his hopes on “Socrates” Meyers, Lawrence Whit man, Hugh Currin, and Fen Waite. Both sides are confident of victory. ETHEL CAROLYN PALMER S MUSICALE (', RENT SUCCESS Miss Ethel Carolyn Paimer’s mu sieale, held Saturday afternoon at the Hotel Osburn, under the patronage of Mu Phi Epsilon, was a decided suc cess, the drawing room 1 omg crowded v, ith an enthusiastic audience of mu sic lovers.
