Students Brave Rain To Watch Unveiling
Of Store Windows; Univ. Band Plays
(By Adelaide Lake)
“Hello, Lane,” was temporarily trans
ferred from the University campus to
Willamette street last night when house
meetings were suspended and students
attended the unveiling of store windows
decorated by the Eugene merchants for
Dress-up Week. In spite of rain and the
almost utter impossibility of carrying
an umbrella in the crowd, interest and
loyalty were manifested by the Univer
sity students and townspeople who made
their appearance to admire the efforts of
Displays showed that much care had
been used by all window trimmers to give
the most beautiful effect as well as to
exhibit the stock of the store. In two
stores live models were shown; in one
to display suits, coats and dresses and
in the other to display hats. In one jew
elry store a doll wedding was staged
where all characters wore diamonds. One
candy store showed candy pulling in pro
cess and another made only small trans- ’
parent spaces in a frosted glass and the
peepholes were labeled "For Men Only”. ;
Candies were shown inside.

“The Admirable Crichton”, J. M.
Barrie’s drama of English society, will
be staged Friday night, March 30, a
Guild hall by the students of the dram
atic interpretation classes under the di
rection of Professor A. F. Reddie. Cca
trary to the previous notice that the
production of the play had been aban
doned because of t1' i hi[h royalty, the
play will be given, but for one night
It is probable that all of the work of
the classes in rehearsing for the play
would have been in v’ain had it not been
for the response which citizens of Eu
gene and members of the faculty gave
when the announcement came that the
production had been given up.
Individual membe. s of the University
faculty, members of the Drama guild
and citizens of Eugene, guaranteed the
entire amount of the royalty regardla-s
of the profit that might be made from
the seat sale and rehearsals have been
continued with scarcelj an interruption
in the original plans.
One of the first o get into commu
nication with Profentor Reddie after the
announcement was made through the
Eugene papers last week that the play
had be n abandoned, was the Rev. Wil
liam Moll Case, pastor of the Central
Presbyterian Church of this city. Rev.
Case asked permissi m to head the list
of subscribers who would guarantee the
entire amount of -he royalty in order
that the play should be produced here.
So interested was Rev. Mr. Case that
he has announced i. sermon for next
Sunday evening, based upon the leading
character of CTichton.
Many of the students who have won
distinction in previous campus plays will
be seen in the cast of Crichton Friday
night. Among these are Ernest Wat
kins, Margaret Crosby, Alex Bowen,

PREPPERS TO 6ET
GLIMPSE OF OREGON
Stereopticon Lectures Ready
for High School Students’
Pamphlets Portraying Campus
Life Published by Advertis
In pursuance of the policy upon which
it came into existence last year, the I
Greater Oregon Committee met last
week and formulated extensive plans for
making the University better known to
high school students of the state. The
ambition of the committee is to keep
within Oregon universities and colleges, 1
students who have the choice of attend
ing schools outside.
This is to be done by giving every
high school pupil in the principal cities
of Oregon a glimpse of the University,
not an actual view of the campus and
its buildings, for that would be too ex
pensive, but all time pictures, literature,
and lecturers can portray.
Special emphasis will be placed upon
a series of student lectures to be given
during spring vueation. Four speakers
will be sent out to cover the principal
cities of the state, and each will be ac
companied by a stereopticon outfit and
operator. Machines, and slides showing
the University campus, laboratories and
class-rooms, and many phases of student
life, have been contributed by the ex
tension department for the enterprise.
Besides these specially delegated
speakers, upper-classmen will be asked
to go before high school audiences in
their home towns during their spring
vacation or week-end sojourns and talk
on some phase of University life. It is
thought that, in this way, nearly every
high school student will be reach d.
The opinion of the Greater Oregon Com
mittee is that little or nothing about
the University is known to high school
students in some parts of the state,
except that there is such an institution
located at Eugene.
The committee will include in its ad
vertising plan the publication and dis
tribution, to juniors and seniors in high
schools, of pamphlets portraying life
on the campus and all the information
usually sought by one conteirplating en
tering upon a college career. The ad
vertising committee of the University
will co-ope”ate with tae student organi
zation in putting out literature.
Expenses of speakers and the publi
cation of pamphlets will be met partly
by some form of student entertainment
and partly by the University advertis
The committee pirns to begin work
early next semester and launch a lec
ture campaign in the fall during the
numerous holidays that cut up the first
half of the school ; ear. Christmas va
cation will give speakers an opportuni
ty to cover a wide range of territory.
