HEAL ART Through the efforts of Mu Phi Ep silon, Miss Tina Lerner, the world re nowned Russian pianist, is to give a recital in Villard Hall tomorrow even ing. Such events are in keeping with an institution such as the University of ()regon, and should he received with enthusiasm by a community that stands for the very best in literature, music, and art. The college student’s appreciation of music does not stop with ragtime, although such an impression is held by many. Here we have one of the finest productions of its kind, given without charge on our own campus. As a part of his education, no one can afford to overlook this opportunity. Our status as a group of University people, capable of appreciating the best in art, is judged largely by our reception of an artist of Miss Lerner’s type, nave we ueen euucaieu up to the point of true appreciation? Wed nesday evening’s attendance will an swer the question. IONTKIKS FOR HAND HALL AKK ASKKD BY HAYWARD Announcement v,as made yesterday hy Physical Director William Hay ward that entries for the annual in ter class hand hall contest must be in before next Saturday, December 7, or participation in the game will not be granted. This ruling applies both to the sin pie and double entries, and as the pomes must be played off rupidly to make way for the inter-fraternity panics, Hayward desires that all the prospective players hand in their names at. once. The first panic of the inter-frater nity series between Alpha Tau Omego ami Kappa Sigma that was to have been played Monday afternoon, failed to materialize on account of a scarcity of players from the two houses when time was called for the match.

I..-.—® “OVERSTEPPING THE BOUNDS” “Taking advantage of the antiquated condition of the Student Body consti tution, a few college women have de clared their intention of entering the Idaho debate try-outs. No one will deny their constitutional right to do so, but in the act they are violating a precedent, not only of Willamette, but of every college worthy of the name, which is that men and women debate separately. To break this pre cedent would be distinctively to lower Willamette in our own and in others’ estimation. “The Idaho debate was arranged with no other thought than that it was for men, though this not specified in the contract. With this in mind, we think that the women of the Uni ' versity will not insist upon entering the try-outs. “There is, however, every argument in favor of debate for women. If there is sufficient interest to justify it, the manager of debate should by all means attempt to schedule con tests with the women representatives of the other colleges of the state. But if this interest is lacking, or if the debates could not be secured, there ought to be no attempt on the part of the women to inject them selves into the men’s arena. “Woman suffrage, friends, has car ried in Oregon, but even that fact ought not to break down a proper precedent and the “fitness of things.” —Willamette Collegian. REAL NEWSPAPER LIFE “The editors of the Oregon Emer ald, published by the students at the University of Oregon, recently asked several members of the Faculty for an opinion as to the newspaper. Some declared that it was too sensational, some that it was not sensational enough, some that it was too inde pendent, some that it was too much under the thumb of the Faculty. And so the college editors have decided “that the wisest course is to use our own best judgement.” Those boys are getting a taste of real newspaper life. That’s what they all say on the outside about real newspapers, my boys.”—Klamath Falls Northwestern.

THEATRICAL “Dombey and Son.” By A. F. Reddie. “Does he resemble his mother?” “Poor Fanny! No, he wasn’t like his mother. Poor Fanny! She died, Yes, she died, but she meanlt well.” Little Paul died, too, though doubt less he also meant well,—died while he saw a vision of the waves, with his mother on the other side, beckon ing to him,—died, and prevented the proud name of “Dombey and Son” from continuing. Several novels of Charles Dickens have been dramatized, and many not ed actors and actresses have achieved 'their most signal successes in the great character parts thus offered. Indeed, as one of our writers says, “Charles Dickens must always be one of the most striking figures in the history of English literature, on ac count of the dramatic nature of his success.” In the dramatization of “Dombey and Son,” 'to be presented at the Eu gene theatre on December 6, by the University of Oregon Dramatic Club, the story of the death of little Paul, the estrangement between Mr. Dom bey and his daughter, Florence, Mr. Dombey’s second marriage to the proud and beautiful Mrs. Granger, her desertion of him, and his recon ciliation with his daughter, together with the love affair and marriage of Florence to Walter Gay, are graph ically told. In all, there are twenty two speaking parts, introducing all the popular favorites of this wonder ful novel. In the prologue one finds the pale invalid, “Little Paul,” dying amid the solicitations of relations. His father refuses to believe his son is ill. his aunt tells him to “Make an effort,” his father’s housekeeper tells him a story of a mad bull. Only the gentle Florence, his sister, understands, and nestling close in her arms, and bab bling sweetly to her of the wild waves, and what they are saying to him, he passes oujt into the great be yond. In the play proper are three acts, the scenes alternating: between the instrument maker’s shop—“The Little Wooden Midshipman” and Mr. Dom bey’s. We are shown the old instru ment maker, Sol Gills, reduced to beggery, and the bailiff attaching his goods, his handsome young nephew standing by, grieved and powerless. They say in their agony that they have no friend to help them, and in the nick of time their old friend, Cap tain Cuttle, appears, and suggests that Walter apply to his employer, Mr. Dombey, to whose house they re pair. Years before, when Paul was still living, Walter found Florence when she was lost in the London streets, and on the strength of this episode, Mr. Dombey loans the money to lift the debt. Mr. Dombey’s “Man of affairs,” Mr. Carker, secretly determines that he will marry Florence and, ruining Mr. Dombey, becomes head of the great firm. In Walter Gay he sees an ob stacle, and so he induces Mr. Dombey to send the young fellow to Barba does, hoping he will die with the fever there, and Walter sets sail on the firm’s own vessel, "The Son and Heir.” In the meanwhile Mr. Dombey re marries. His recond wife is a cold and proud widow, Edith Granger. Mr. Carker. foiled in hfs attempts to marry Florence, determines to ruin the Dombey home by an intrigue with Edith. To that end he bends all his cunning. Edith, who has learned to despise Mr. Dombey, sees in Carker an opportunity to do two things, re venge herself on Mr. Dombey and give Carker the treatment he de serves. Ostensibly she leaves the house with Carker, only to fail him at the place of appointed meeting. Mr. Dombey is crushed and, in a tit of anger, strikes Florence, when she attempts to console him. She runs from her home to old Captain Cuttle, now living alone at the "Mid shipman," Sol Gills having started on a search for Walter, for it has been reported that the good ship "Son and Heir” is lost. In the last act we see Florence keeping house for the old sea captain, to whom has come the news of Wal ter's rescue, and in a thrilling story of the storm, the old man .tells the “lady lass" of her lover’s rescue and re turn. Walter enters the room and Florence, with a cry of joy, is caught in his arms. COCKERLINE, ft FRALEY Fancy and Staple Dry Goods, La dies’ and Men’s Furnishinfe, Men’a Youth’s, Children’s Clothing.
