HOOVER’S LETTER CALLS
1918 WOMEN TO SERVICE
Members of Graduating Classes Should
Do All Possible in Nation’s
Hour of Peril.
Herbert Hoover in a letter winch has
just been received here addressed to
i the women of the graduating lcasses of
colleges and universities throughout the
country, calls these women to the serv
ice of the United States food adminis
“Our need is ^o great that we appeal
to you to prepare yourselves as best
you can,” reads the letter, “and to en
list for the great work that must'be
“There will be diversity of tasks and
therefore diversity of talent and train
ing can be used.” The more the women
know about food, its production, dis
tribution, use and conservation, con
tinues the letter, the more valuable they
“If you have not already done so,
we urge you to pursue studies dealing
especially with food, but these should
be reinforced by courses in chemistry,
physiology, and economics. It will be
well, too, if you have acquired the arts
of public presentation of your knowl
edge to the people who so much need it.”
“Today yonr country asks you to re
solve to do what you can in this honr
of extreme peril to the democratic peo
ples of the world.”
I Harvard will probably not publish its
senior album for two years because of
the conservation movement's influence.

BRIBE BLEUE IN
IS COLORFUL SATIRE
Settings and Costumes Exotic
in Maeterlinck’s Poetic
Fantasy; Strong Color
Frances Frater Stars as Ar
diane; Interpretive Music
by John Stark Evans.
The staging of “Ardianp and Barbo
Bleue" by the fourth-year students in
dramatic interpretation Thursday and
Friday nights, was a great success.
Maeterlinck’s ironical portrayal of wo
man is not too flattering, but then it
may be wholesome—who knows? Even
though the five wives do elect to stay
with Blue Beard and the dark, when
they are shown the way to light, and
even though the sixth wife is overly
lenient with the oppressor, she does
utter some grand sentiments which may
be taken by the optimistic as holding
much promise for the future. Scorning
the doors which she ,has permission to
open, she says, “All that is permitted
will tell us naught,” and straightway,
after a peep or two at the lovely jewels,
opens the forbidden door. She had the
right “hunch” anyway, if she did weaken
toward the end.
■ iivugin vi • luj it. vuvi
While the setting and costumes were
exotic, and Blue Beard a myth, the play
belongs to no past time and to no coun
try. The thought is strictly modern, and
the imaginative quality of the setting is
admirably adapted to the delicate mys
ticism of the author. The excellent mu
sic furnished by John Stark Evans, add
ed greatly to the atmospheric effect.
The settings were probably the best
that have ever been seen in the campus
playhouse. The harmonious use of
strong colors in garments and lights,
created effects that were quite gorgeous.
The harem scene, with its beautifully
costumed girls, its colors mud fine fab
rics, its dancing and music, was a fine
achievement, ltuth Miller, in the inter
pretative incense dance, displayed much
ability. She executed the dance with
good feeling and a technique which in
dicates excellent training. In the dun
geon scene, the group of women stand-i
ing in the light from the window which
Ardiane had broken, made an artistic
Color Effects Gorgeous.
Groat credit is due to Frances Schenk
and her assistants, for the costumes. The
color combinations were in perfect
taste, and the strong rods, and greens,
and purples, gave an effect that was
bizarre, but beautiful. No better ef
fects have been seen on the profes
sional stagf in Eugene this winter. •
Frances Fratcr, in the role of Ar
diann was, of course, the star of the
evening. She played the part of the
“womanly woman” very well. Her voice
and carriage interpreted the part ercel
lently. She played well the part of the
strong-minded woman who, with uner
ring judgment, passed over the non
essentials which had occupied the other
wives for some time, and went straight
to the heart of things.- If she was a
bit too kind-hearted m the end, that
made her the more charming, and gave
a touch of delicious humor to the piece.
Hester Hurd, as the nurse, was ex
cellent, and her make-up was very
clever. If she did display a healthy in
terest in the bright jewels she had more
sense than most of them when it came
time to deal with Blue Beard. But she
was overruled by the many wives.
Cosgriff Has Easy Lead.
Joanne Driscoll. Margaret Crosby,
Ruth Young, Charlotte Banfield, and
Claire Gazley, did very well as the other
wives. Unfortunately, they were so
much of a type that they could do very
little to distinguish themselves. Any
way, playing such a part ought to be
an interesting experience for an Oregon
Robert CosgTiff had an easy part in
Barhe Blene. Big whiskers and other
terror-inspiring camouflage, did the busi
ness. The weakest part of the play
was the mob scene at the beginning, and
this may be accounted for by the fact
that students of less experience ap
peared in this scene, and also to the
fact that they had to make the open
ing wedge, which is not easy at best.
