ORCHESTRA TO PHY
Musicians Will Make Second
Appearance at “Magic of Oz.”
Program for Animal Concert in
March Is Complete and Re
f ’ hearsals Are Progressing.
The University orchestra will make
its second public appearance next Fri
day and Saturday evening when it will
play for the two performances of “The
! Wizard of Oz,” which is being played by
the dramatic department of the Univer
| sity. The orchestra will play between
intermissions and for the several dances
which are in the play.
The annual orchestra concert will be
given this year in March. The program
has already been arranged and consist
ent work started on the selections. A
| feature of the program will be “The Toy
Symphony,” which will be the last num
ber on the program. It is the plan
of Miss Winifred Forbes, director of the
orchestra, to have the members appear
in costume for this selection. Many
special instruments are required for this
number and they have all been sent for.
The rest of the program consists of
very interesting numbers among which
are selections from the “Surprise
Symphony,” an overture from “Martha”
and many groups of short, attractive
pieces. There will also be some solo
and ensemble selections.
MRS. THORNE LOIR
Instructor in Dramatics Appar
ently Losing in Battle for Life.
Strange Case Baffles Eugene
Physicians Who Are Power
less to Help.
Mrs. .T. Frederic Thorne, assistant
instructor in dramatic interpretation,
who has been seriously ill for several
weeks has taken a sudden turn for the
worse according to attending physicians.
At one time yesterday little hope was
entertained for Mrs. Thorne’s life.
Three doctors and a trained nurse are
in attendance at Mrs. Thorne’s home in
the Hull apartments.
Eugene physicians and nerve experts
have been baffled by the strange case
with which Mrs. Thorne is suffering. For
a considerable period of time the patient
has been unconscious and fails to ree
ornige familiar faces or speak intelligibly
when consciousness does appear to re
turn for a time. A part of her face is
now paralyzed, seeming to indicate that
her condition is growing worse.
One explanation advanced by attend
ing physicians is that a growth exists
on the bone about the skull, caused by a
concussion probably due to a fall. This
growth they say, may have continued
slowly to increase, and push into the
brain itself, thus causing a loss of con

Play With Eccentric Parts to Be
Staged December 15-16.
Character Actors Develop as
Rehearsals for “Magic of
Surprising talent for playing character
roles has been discovered during the re
hearsals for the “'Magic of Oz” which
will be given in Guild hall on the evenings
of December 15 and 16. Although this
will be the first appearance of many of
the east, they are showing skill in the
handling of the parts.
Cleome Carroll, as Eureka', plays the
cat. Her intonations are lifelike, and
her “meuws” realistic.
Martha Beer, although experienced in
this line of work, has been given an en
tirely different part than ever before.
Sho plays the Patchwork Girl, which
gives her opportunities to show dancing
Jay Gore also has an unusual part. He
is the Tik-Tok Man, who is shaped like
a clock, and talks with a clocky rythm.
Anne Dawson, in a boy’s role, makes
“Tip” a very fascinating youth. The
leading role, that of Dorothy Gale, who is
blown into the Land of Oz by a Kansas
cyclone, will be played by Leta Rhodes.
A clever piece of character acting is
being done by Mamie Gillette, who is
Mamby, the witch, who later turns into
a princess. Miss Gillette is especially
good in assuming the voice of an old
The comedy role will be taken by Vic
tor Sether, who plays the cowardly lion.
Mr. Sether has a most natural roar,
which he is continually using.
The cast is a long one, and contains
many minor rifles, all of which are eccen
tric. The “Magic of Oz” will be pre
formed on next Friday and Saturday
evenings, with possibly matinee on Sat
