WOMEN’S PLACE ON CAMPUS
Is Topic of Discussion at Tuesday Meet
ing of Eutaxian Literary Society.
The Eutazian literary society met
Tuesday evening in Prof. Schafer’s
room in the library, where it plans to
meet during the cold weather. Several
new members were taken in after which
a p'ogram was given.
The first number was a ukulele duet
by Margaret Rogers and Jessie Garner.
A discussion of “Woman’s place
on the Oregon Campus’’ followed. Mary
Alice Ilill gave a brief resume of wo
man’s plaee in the world's work to show
the relative position Oregon lias with
respect to other colleges and the world.
To supplement this Mary Johns reported
a few interviews witli different Univer
sity departments concerning the relative
standings of men and women in classes.
According to her. Dr Gilbert and Prof.
Jackson both say that women do bet
ter work than men in their classes, but
this they think is due to the fact that
the majority of their students are men
and only women specially gifted enter
these classes. Dr. Schmidt said women
are better students. “Women have a
more highly developed sense of duty,”
The library could make no estimate of
which sex took out the greater number
of books. It is thought men do less
reading than women but their reading
is of deeper books. Women at present
have higher standings than men in
scholastic work. ,
The conclusion drawn was that there
is a remarkable equality on the campus
intellectually and socially.
PROF. REDDIE MAY RETURN
Rumor Circulating on Campus That In
structor Will Be Back.
A rumor circulating on the campus to
day says that I’rof. A. F. Iteddie will
be back to resume his work in the Uni
versity as head of the department of dra
matic interpretation next semester.
When asked for verification of the
report K. W. Onthank, secretary to the
president, said he could give no positive
information. lie admitted there would
be a “possibility” of the executive com
mittee of the Board of Itegents taking
the matter up in their meeting tonight
and the committee would probably act
upon the recommendation of President
Campbell. It is understood Prof. Iteddie
is willing to give up his lyceum work
and resume his work at the University.

IS WELL RECEIVED
“Magic of Oz” Is Played Last
Night in Guild Hall to
Old and young alike were afforded a
delightful treat last night in witnessing
the “Magic of Oz,” written by Rosalind
Bates, presented in Guild hall. The
play was a clever arrangement of some
nine of the Oz stories by Frank Lyman
Baum, so well known to almost every
Dorothy Gale, “just a little girl” who
would do no harm for “anything in the
world." was portrayed by Leta Rhodes
with childish simplicity and sweetness.
Her pet cat. Eureka, a character
created almost entirely by Mrs. Bates
was cleverly handled by Oleome Carroll.,
Miss Mamie Gillette as Mombie the
witch was truly wicked, used a vocabu
lary of reproachful names found no
where but among such terrible creatures.
Scraps, the patch-woik girl, played
by Martha Beer, was altogether what her
name signifies—both in clothes and
brains—and afforded much amusement.
Harriet l’olhemus as the Scarecrow,
was a fantastic figure—all that the
name implies, while Victor Setter in the
Cowardly Lion was admirable.
Professor II. M. Wogglebug, T. E. was
well handled by Clayton Baldwin. Mr.
Baldwin was consistent throughout his
Uubids, King of the Nomcs, was most
extravagently portrayed by Charles
Prim. Mr. y.rim has the tendency to
over characterize, which often protrudes
noticeably and did last night even in
this unusual character of the Nome King.
The Tick-Tock man, “the most per
fect mechanical man in existence, guar
anteed for 2fX)0 years,” was Jay Gore.
Air. Uores interpretation was very
praise worthy and added one of the
very distiinct “wonder-land” touches to
the entire production.
The Wizard of Oz—“the Great and
Terrible”—did not prove to be at all ter
rible but a mere person who had fallen
into the land of Oz from a parachute.
With the exception of the last act the
play went through with snap anil spirit
but the ending was somewhat weak.
Young women under the direction of
Miss Goldsmith added greatly to the
charm of the play. No less a treat
was the music by the University orches
