ing the summer session of 1913 the
University of Oregon was selected
as a meeting place for interdenomina

cial amelioration which religious bod
ies are developing today; (2) it pre
sents in its summer school classes and
lectures in Sociology, Ethics, Litera

received an ovation of no little men
tion. The press, in commenting on
the presentations, spoke in high terms
of the work.
The annual spring tour capped the
climax of the eventful season, when
“My Man and Lady,” written by Pro
fessor A. F. Reddie, was presented in
five towns of Southern Oregon, under
the auspices of the schools. “The best
amateur performance ever played
here,” was the unanimous verdict
that these places gave to this produc
tion. Upon the return a local pre
sentation was given in Villard Hall
and a local critic characterized it as
the smoothest play yet. Junction City
and Harrisburg were also played, and
in both these places the University
las won lifelong friends. Other towns
in the valley spoke for dates, but ow
ing to the end of the semester, they
had to be abandoned.
“Joy,” by Galsworthy, was sched
uled for out of door production as an
entertainment feature of the Common
wealth Conference, but inclement wea
ther prohibited its appearance. This
play will be given at the first opportu
nity next year.
The momentous thing that is occu
pying the Guild players at the pres

joined to make this a truly represent

That this production is claiming th

research, we will have reports from
the Willamette Valley, as wejll as
from various other parts of the state.
The students have taken a fine in
terest in this bird count and they are
working out a splendid bird consus.”
The districts are as follows:
1. Forty-acre tract across the riv
er at the end of the lower bridge.

tains the best variety of birds in the
neighborhood. The students in charge

Walter Kirk and Roy Orem.
