JAPANESE ART SHOWS
R. Dosch, Instructor in Archi
tectural Department, Ex
plains Qualities of Prints.
(By Emma Wootton)
‘The rythmical vitality, the big
planes, the wonderful quality of the'
black, the flowing Tines—these are
some of the qualities of the Japanese
prints,” said R. Dosch, one of the
instructors of the art department ot
the University, in speaking of the
Japanese prints that were on exhibi
tion in the department of architec
ture on Tuesday.
“It is marvelous what they can
get into so limited a space without
making it seem crowded. The figures
melt into the scenes; they never
stand out, for the Japanese realiz
ed that man is not all-important, but
only a part of the universe.
“The quality of the coloring is
wonderful. Some tones are soft and
quiet and depend upon some other
tone to bring out this beauty; others
are flaring and powerful. The black
has the deep quality of velvet, but
with more strength. These colors are
obtained by vegetable, mineral and
“The prints always suggest repose i
and thought. They do not make you
want to act but to mediate. The Jap
anese artists went out into the open
and appreciated the beauties of the
scenes and then went away to medi- 1
tate and paint. They never put any
thing in carelessly but always with
“No one can tell you how to ap
preciate Japanese prints,” went on ;
Mr. Dosch. “You must just live with
them. They were not appreciated in
Europe until the time of Whistler.”
Mr. Dosch gives instruction in
modeling and freehand. He has
studied in Rome and Paris and is
from Portland, Oregon.
SMALLPOX EPIDEMIC PUTS
QUIETUS ON HOCKEY GAME
Because of a smallpox quarantine
at O. A. C. the hockey game sched
uled for next Saturday between the
women of that institution and the
University will be postponed,
rj The epidemic started on Sunday;
since then all the Waldo hall inhab
itants have been vaccinated, and no
woman is supposed to leave college
this week for fear that they might
carry the disease elsewhere. In a let
ter received today from Miss Mable
Robinson, secretary of the depart
ment of physical education at Cor
vallis, she says: “If no other cases
break out we will play just as soon
as the quarantine is lifted. Our team
is heartbroken at the delay, as are
we teachers. Wle will let you know
the earliest date that it is considered
safe for all concerned to play.”
DALLAS PAPER EDITORIALLY
PRAISES MRS. GEELINGER
That the undertaking of Mrs.
George Gerlinger of this city, a mem
ber of the board of regents of the
University of Oregon, to create a
fund of $100,000 for the erection of
a woman’s memorial building at that
institution, will be crowned with suc
cess there can be little doubt in the
minds of those familiar with the re
markable spirit of progress possessed
by this remarkable woman. Mrs. Ger
linger, appreciating the need of a
building of this character in connec
tion with the state’s institution of
learning, introduced the question be
fore a gathering of the governing
body. Her ideas were immediately
•acquiesced in, and she was appointed
to direct the creation of a fund nec
essary for carrying out the plan. The
fund will be raised through subscrip
tions from the people of Oregon, and
although the campaign may be some
what prolonged by reason of a scar
city of ready money at this time, the
project will undoubtedly reach suc
cessful consummation and the struc
ture erected according to Mr. Ger
linger’s idea of what it should be.
Perseverance is one of the chief char
acteristics of this Dallas woman.

church spent Wednesday as a guest

“OLD GRADS” TO DANCE
FREE IS PLAN OF JUNIORS
A feature of the Junior Home-com
ing dance which will be held in the
Eugene armory at 8 p. m., November
20, after the Oregon-O. A. C. game,
is that all alumni will be admitted
free of charge.
“Owing to the great number of
people who are expected in Eugene
for the week-end, the dance looms up
as the largest event of the year. From
all former experiences, during Jun
ior week-end and during any other
time, in fact, that there has been any
of the alumni hack or any high school
students on the campus, this dance
promises to be one of our best and
there is no reason why it should not
be,” sai'd Emmet Rathbun, who is in
charge of the arrangements.
MUSEUM ADDS PICTURES
Crater Lake Views and Pe
troleum Samples Supple
ment Condon Exhibit.
Some recent aditions to the Con
don Geological Museum include a
fine series of Crater Lake pictures
taken by the Kiser Photo company
of Portland. Also there have been
added a series of samples of crude
petroleum and some of its more im
portant by-products, presented by the
Standard Oil company of California.
“We have just received an old In
dian skull,” said Dr. Warren D.
Smith, head of the Geology depart
ment. "It shows the deformation of
the skull, made artifically by a board
pressed against the forehead during
childhood, as was the custom among
the early Indian races. This specimen
was found on a sand-toar in the San
tiam river, about one mile from Leb
anon. It is said that there was for
mally an Indian burial ground in this
Locality. The skull was sent to the
department by Willard A. Elkins, re
corder of the city of Lebanon.”
The class in general Geology made
a field trip last Saturday morning to
the old Smith quarry near the mill
race. From that place the class went
to Judkin’s Point, and followed along
the ridge to Fairmount Heights. Sev
eral of these field trips are plan
ned for Saturday mornings. One of
them will include Spencer’s Butte
and another, will cover a trip to a
cave back of Seavey’s hop yard.
PROF. REBEC’S LECTUflE
WINS REFORMER’S PRAISE
Dr. George H. Rebec, head of the
department of philosophy, is to have
copies of his lecture on “Civil Serv
ice Reform” published for nation
wide circulation, with lectures of such
men as Dr. Charles W. Eliot, ex
Governor Hughes, Carl Schurz, A.
Lowrence Lowell, Charles W. Bona
parte, and others of equal promi
Dr. Rebec is in receipt of a letter
from Mrs. Frederick H. Cole, chair
.nan of the civil service department
of the General Federation of Wo
men’s clubs, asking permission to
reprint his lecture for idistribution
by the New York Auxiliary of that
organization. The lecture is one
recently delivered by Dr. Rebec be
fore the Portland council, and was
later published in the General Fed
eration Magazine for September. It
deals with the proposed civil service
reform in the way of civil pensions,
employment of women and study
classes, which the general federation
advocates. In her introduction of
Dr. Rebec, Mrs. Cole speaks of him
as a man “who inspires both confi
dence and interest and is esteemed
to be one of the most scholarly men
on the Pacific coast.”
Many Questions Come Up as to
Establishment of Student
Whether the capital to start the
proposed student co-operative store
can be secured, whether the student
body is large enough to support such
an undertaking, whether time is ripe
to spring the proposition; these are
some of the whethers confronting the
committee on the co-operative store
The comimttee is conducting a
thorough and extensive investigation
on the subject. They have received
reports from Stanford. Washington,
and Reed College where student co
operatives tores have been establish
ed and conducted with success.
At Stanford 15 of the faculty gave
personal notes for the amount to a
bank which furnished the capital.
The faculty ran the store until it was
out of debt and then turned it over to
the students. Since then it has been
conducted by the students and has
paid a dividend of 10 per cent yearly.
The question here is where will the
capital be secured?
Probably no definite steps toward
such an undertaking will be taken
this year. ‘We will have to move
slowly,” said chairman of the com
mittee, Chester Miller. “The com
mittee will consider the question from
all of its angles and know just what
it is geting into before we go ahead.
If the store is established, it will be
along lines pursued in other institu
tions where it has worked success
fully. The business will be on a
cash basis only.”
J. D. Foster, Y. M. C. A., secretary,
says, “No University with any respect
is without one. I have been in several
Universities where the plan was tried
and It always operated successfully
and with profit to the students.
f‘I am highly in favor of the plan,”
stated Lamar Tooze, president of the
student body. “In every institution
where is has been tried it has operat
ed to good advantage.”
If such a store is established at
Oregon each student caring to join
will pay a fee of about $1. The
store will furnish him with books and
sundry supplies at a very low cost.
