The title “Ins” was given to Shakespearean critics |,-ho explain the character of all Shakespeare’s works by his own per sonality, and the “Outs” to those who attribute his manner of treatment of ids subject and characters by the edu cation of the audiences who were to witness his plays, the theatres where ITrfecsci Herbert Crombie Howe. \ the plays were produced, and the 'castes of each. Professor Howe said that the con tention of the “Ins” is supported by Hie professorial critics, and that of the “Outs” principally by unacademic /riters. He said: “Mr. Frank Harris is the most notable advocate of the explanation of the “Ins.” and Mr. Brander Matthews is the best repres entative of the position of the “Outs.” Professor Howe, in his paper, gave a brief outline of the love affair of Shakespeare with Mary Fitton, and described the family relations of ■hakespeare; bringing out the founda (Continued on last page.)

ROYAL EGYPTIAN FLIRT NOT BRUNETTE. SAYS PROF. DUNN Cleopatra of Grecian, not Egyptian Birth—Caesar and Anthony Figure i»* Lecture. “Cleopatra was in all probability an entrancing blonde instead of the dusky skinned beauty as is commonly believed,” was the statement of Pro fessor Dunn in his lecture on art yes terday afternoon. He attributes her attractiveness not so much to sheer physical loveliness as to personal magnetism. The lecturer bore out his statement by showing on the screen photographs of coins bearing her image, of busts modeled from paintings, and of wall decorations which contain her picture. He also proved that the Egyptian queen was of Grecian birth, thus up setting another common belief con cerning the famous sweetheart of the Roman general. In the latter part of his address, Professor Dunn gave a short but comprehensive history of her life, de tailing many points of interest gen erally unknown to the reading public. The next lecture in this series will 'os “Famous Greek Celebrities.” The wearing of small blue caps and a green button is made a penalty for flunking at the University of Colo rado. Earl C. Jones, ’12, ex-president of "he Yr. M. C. A., is now working as 'nspector for the Portland Gas Com oany. RUSSIAN THRILLS MANY \udience of 800, Musicians and Non Musicians Awed by Power Shown by Tina Lerner. Eight hundred students and towns people were guests of Mu Phi Epsi lon Wednesday evening, in Villard Hall. And eight hundred people left Villard Hall firm in the conviction that they had heard one of the most brilliant and talented pianists of the age. As the first soft caressing notes of the Caprice on “Alceste” drifted and eddied through the dingy arches of old Villard—threading the rhythmic measures of the Waltz in A Flat— caught up and carried through the mazes of Rubenstein’s Barcarolle— and gently brought back to reality with the last lingering trill of the Spanish Rhapsodie—each of the eight hundred, artist or novice, neo phyte or sceptic, emerged with a deeper sense of the marvellous power of the Art of Arts; and a respect that was almost awe for the youthful art ist who, unassisted and in a strange land, could hold sway at once over the sympathetic, and the untutored devotee of ragtime. Miss Lerner is touring the West under the management of Mr. Loudon Charlton, and is now playing under the auspices of the Portland Musical Association. Her appearance here was in the form of a complimentary concert by Mu Phi Epsilon to the University and city. The patronesses for the occassion were Mrs. P. L. Campbell. Mrs. A. C. Dixon, Mrs. M. H. Douglass, and Miss G. W. Lewis. Miss Lerner’s program follows: Gluck-Saint Saens . .Caprice on “Alceste” Mozart .Adagio in B minor Dohnanyi.Raphsodie in C major Chopin Fantasy in F minor Three Etudes C sharp minor (Op. 10) F Major (Op. 25) G flat (Op. 10) Nocturne, F sharp minor Waltz, Op. 34 in A flat Rubinstein Barcarolle in A minor Hinton.Etude Arabesque (Dedicated to Tina Lerner.)

AND ADVISERS WOULD OPEN TO GENERAL COLLEGE PUBLIC VARSITY WOMEN FAVOR SCHEME WITHOUT EXCEPTION — MISS PERKINS AFRAID OF PLAN, BUT WOMENS DEAN IS ARDENT BOOSTER There has long: been at the Uni versity a sentiment in favor of mak ing- the inter-sorority and interclass basketball games among the college women general college contests, held perhaps in the larger gymnasium, but at least open to all of the students. At present an effort is under way to have the exclusive nature of these contests changed. Dr. Bertha Stuart, physical direc tor of women at the University, is one of those favoring the open games. Speaking of this she says: “Personally 1 am heartily in favor of such an action. When this ques tion was put to a vote among the gi:ls last spring, it was lost by only a few votes. Yes, I think that it would be a good thing.” “Should the girl's basketball games and spring gymnasium drill be played in the Men’s Gymnasium and be open to University students?” Miss Eva Roche, captain of the Senior class team, was asked. “Why shouldn’t they be?” she said, “the games are of interest to everyone in college and they ought to be admitted, but of course Dr. Stua’t should decide this.” 7. he captain of the Junior class team, Miss Hazel Rader, was not so ■,a e about the basketball games being pen to all, but felt that the gyrnna fsium diills should be. Miss Gladys Grayhill. leader of the Freshman team, thought that, “providing invi tations are given out, I see no reason against it.” Captains of all the sor ority basketball teams were inter viewed,—none were opposed to the idea. To get the concensus of opinion among the girls, a great many young women were consulted,—out of the number only one was directly op posed to the girls playing before an audience of college students. Secre tary of the Student Body, Miss Eli zabeth Busch, thought that “only by seeing the gills play could the stu dents judge their skill, and they have some awfullj good games,” she ad ded. “Well, 1 should like to see every one enjoy the games,” said Miss Nell Hememvay; and Miss Flora Dunham, editor of the Oregon Monthly, told the repoiter that “it is done very successfully in Eastern schools, many of them even have in tercollegiate teams.” “At Washington 5.ate Collage,’ said Miss Gertrude Miller, formerly a student there, “girls basketball is not much played, bat the girls join with the boys in giving a gymnasium ex hibition. Hundreds of people attend, for the most part students and par ents,—the audiences are respectful,— they are inteiested in the work ana the girls enjoy it.” Bess Young, who previously went to Idaho College, said, "1 have been used to the girl’s games being open to the students. The plan worked splendidly and there were no objections to it.” Miss Mary Perkins, instructor in English, did not think the idea could be worked successfully, but Miss Ruth Guppy, Dean of Women, said thut “to her mind the plan would lend more interest to girls athletics and result in a more democratic feeling among them. There is nothing unladylike about it, and I hope that they will open their games to the college stu dents that wish to attend.” Boynton Speaks in Portland. Professor W. P. Boynton, of the de partment of Physics, will speak to the Portland Y. M. C. A. tonight on the subject of “Wireless Telegraphy.” This is one of the lectures of a course being given by that institution on modern problems by members of the 0. A.

HAYWARD PI TS WEIGHT ON SKINNY GRIDIRON MEN 0 -ebon's Vest Pocket Quarterback (Jains 11 Pounds by Use of Bill’s Taftinir Process. (By Lee Hendricks.) Wow! Also zowie! Who was that fat person who almost mashed us against the library door, Grayce? That. Edythe, is "Arise” Cornell, who used to be called our midget quarter back. I’m sure he didn’t mean toi crowd 11s, though, but he just can’t 1 elp it since he’s been following the latest flesh-building system. It surely has Mrs. Susanna Co in oft’s method and all the other sys tems for Tafting the human race an chored to the track for results. It’s simplicity itself. All you have to do is to turn out for football under ’’inkham and Hayward, and you’ll outgrow your belt in a short time. It. sounds strange, because football was formerly supposed to be wear ing on the physique, but it’s true. When Cornell came here last fall, he was known as the midget, the pygmy, the diminutive marvel, the vest pocket edition of a quarterback. Now they can’t call him any of these names, because he has grown so. Not. up and down, you understand, but back and forth, or, to speak geographically, north and south. h r he weighed 125, now, at last ac counts, it is 136. It’s the same way vith Parsons. He came up from 151 to 163. Others have waxed fat in )i opoi tion. BOARD OF REGENTS TO MEET SATURDAY Rrdget and Conference Are Objects of Meeting—Governor West May Attend. A meeting' of the Board of Regents of the University of Oregon will oc cur next Saturday morning in Presi dent P. L. Campbell’s office in Villard Hall.

Y. M. C. A. MEETING WILL NOT CONFLICT WITH PLAY Gale Seaman, Pacific Coast Secre tary of the Student Y. M. C. A., will speak to the men of the University next Friday evening, of the subject “Character Building.” Mr. Seaman has appeared several times before the college men, and has an intimate acquaintance with the colleges on the coast and the condi tions of the students. Although the meeting comes on the same night as the Dramatic Club play, the address will be concluded in plenty of time as to enable the men to attend both. “HUCKLEBERRY FINN” WILL BE NEXT STUDENT EFFORT Mark Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn” will be the next play to be produced j by Professor Iteddie’s class in Dra matic Interpretation.
