Stunning Coats for

Every clever woman will notice how
subtle is the simplicity of the new
Spring models, how effectively youth
lful. A single line over-emphasized ever
so little would spoil the charm and cor
rectness. The garment shown is a
newly arrived Wooltex model, from the
H. Black Company, makers of young
women’s coats and suits. The earlier
one buys this spring the surer she is of
getting authentic creations—we have
managed to get a rather large order ac
cepted by this busy house, but they
give us no assurance about re-order.

“One other contributing factor to the

murk of unquestioned satisfaction with

“Vos. several definite opinions were
given,” Mr. 10aIon replied. “A few of
which were general enough to demand
attention. There were two points mention
ed by a member who visited the I'niver
sity one, the need for a girls’ dormi
tory, the other the need for a depart
ment of domestic science.
“The need of the dormitory was recog
nized by all, hut was especially demand
ed by many who do not approve of sor
orities. A number of Oregon men and
xvotuen who lived in sororities at the
University have told me that they favor
ed a plan by which no student should be
pledged in his freshman year. 1 believe
this plan and a better understanding id’
the characters id' the young men and
women at Oregon will lie effective in
modifying the prejudice which, however
unfounded, must he recognized as strong
with many people.

(By Erl Harwood)
The .Men’s Glee lub gave a concert
lust night at the Rex theatre. But that
doesn’t tell the whole story; they did not
merely give a concert, they “made good,”
they returned the admission price in
pure entertainment. From the opening
ensemble, “A Warrior Bold,” through
the entire 12 numbers nli went smoothly.
There were no disagreeable waits, not a
discordant note, literally and figurative
ly, the whole evening.
In this, his farewell concert. Dean
Ralph II. Lyman, has left a ?eeo-d, a
memory that will live long at Oregon.
Dean Lyman cannot be given more end- j
it than is due for th" able manner in
which he has trained and managed the \
glee clubs this year. He has been with
us since 1013 and it is with sincere re
gret that we remember that we must
lose him to I’amona College at Clare
mont. Calif., at the end of this semester.
The audience itself helped to bring the
best out of th men. It was large, good
natured and appreciative. It responded
quickly to every impression intended lo
he created by the singers. The club is
well balanced this year. It has a clever
repertoire of selections and the harmony
and expression shown in the concert
were of unusual quality. Dean Lyman,
expresses himself as especially pleased
with the expression and interpretation
of the men last night.
Of the ensemble • an hers, “Do Songs
Ma Mammy Sang” and “Wake Miss
Lind.v” received the fullest response
from the audience, hit the men acquited
themselves creditably in all their man
sion, that the University enlarge ils de
partment of education to prepare, teachers
for grades ns well as high school teach
ing. The demand for a great teachers'
college here, which will not conflict with
or interfere with the work done at the
normal schools, will become more and
more pressing.
“But the main thing for the Univer
sity and all connected with it is to realize
that it is maintained because a ma
jority of those who decide upon its sup
port believe that i( will train for better
citizenship. The only test of this will be
the citizens who were at one time its
students. Every member of the student
body who resolves now to return to the
state his best service for the advantage
he is now enjoying, and keeps the reso- ;
1111 ion. will help more than any one
else can to lay the foundation for loyal
and permanent support through the leg
islature and through the people.”

hiTs. The very ease and certainty with
which they found their places, sang and
filed in.o the wings was commendable.
The special numbers all appeared to
please. Curtis Peterson, singing the bar
itone solo, "Thy Sentinel Am I”, while |
not possessing the finished, trained voice j
of the other baritone soloist, William j
Vawter. interpreted and displayed such j
pleasing stage presence that his encore ;
was enthusiastic to a degree.
William Vawter vas one of the hits
of the evening. His voice isj rich and !
full and although he attempted a heavy j
selection in the "Prologue From ‘I, ,
Pagliacei’”, lie so won the audience that ;
it recalled him twice and might have
done s > a third time had not the cur
tain been rung down. Vawter gives the
impression that h‘ is not altogether
sure of himself, hut this is belied by the
strength and clearness of his voice.
Robert Scearce with a violin solo and
Raymond Burns with a piano solo justly j
earned the hearty approbation of the
“Syncopated Spasms in Song” read Le \
program, but one knew what was com j
ing without consulting the program
when Harry .Mills sat down at the piano
and Russell Ralston and Jerome Halz- j
man appeared. Mills is certainly a mas- i
ter of syncopation. The general im- '
pression upon the campus is that Rais-I
ton is dignified, but he gave the lie to '
tills befor the curtain rung down. IIolz
man and he, ably assisted by Mills at
the piano, drew many sonorous laughs I
from the paid admia ;ion section.
Meric .Moore, assisted by William Mor
rison. mystified the audience in his ere- i
ation “Optical Illusions.” The running
fire of patter with which he accompanied ,
his tricks was startling and clever : nd
contributed in no small measure to the
success of his act.

Robert Scearce, Warren Edwards, Cur
tis Reach and Raymond Burns were the
leading characters. They were a laugh j
creating five. Their act. a burlesque on 1
grand opera, an ancient idea, was well j
worked out and executed, although it I
dragged a trifle in places. Their antics 1
almost sent Echo June into convulsions
at one time. The criticism might be !
made that the comedy was chiefly of the
slap-stick variety, but judging from its
reception, that was what tlie audience
Old-timers pronounce last night’s
showing the best in years. It is diffi
cult to win the approval of a critical j
home audience, yet the boys succeeded
well, as proved by the many deep si
Inces, hearty laughs and encores given
them. In all, Oregon may justly be
proud of her Men's Glee Club.
