OPAL WHITELY WRITES
OF WORK IN CALIFORNIA
Former Student Doing Nature Study in
South Finds New Life
1 Opal W.hiteley, who left college at the
end of the winter term to continue her
nature studies in California and to pre
pare or a series of lectures on nature
! topics writes to Mrs. M. F. McClain, of
the library staff, that she is enjoying her
• work in and near Los Angeles and is
*' very happy in it.
“I am very busy with my nature work
and am finding many new kinds of
flowers, butterflies, trees, sea sheiis
and rocks.” she writes, “Two or three
mornings each week I am collecting sea
shells along the coast. There are many
places of interest to nature studeuts
around the city itself. I just returned
from a trip into the San Bernardino
mountains and 1 found them quite de
lightful, though they are beautiful in
a different way from our Oregon moun- 1
“The dear English lady with whom1
I am staying is a charming woman and
a delightful companion. I met her in
our home valley one day when I was
' busy .with my wild flower garden and
we have been dear friends since that
time. She is helping me with my ]
French and Spanish. Both these lang
uages are spoken in the home and the
classics of both are enjoyed by the fam
ily as they have lived a number of
years in France and also in South
“My days are taken up with the study,
research work, writing, nature hikes,
and partly in meeting different people
who are busy in the world's work. This
is a very interesting neighborhood as
all around us are authors, artists, com
posers. poets, and famous actors. And
the charming thing about it all is that
they are very simple and natural.
“The war cloud hangs heavily over
this family as all the six brothers have
been at the front since the fall of 1914
and five cousins have been killed.”

of Delightful Affair.
Kappa Sigma was host this evening
fit one of the most delightful formal
; dances of the year. The living rooms
were transformed into a Japanese par
I adise of rustic arches, pergolas, cherry
blossoms, wisteria, and quince. Suspen
I ded from the lights were large pnra
j sols, through which were reflected bril
liant blues, oranges, greens and yellows.
On the broad porch, which was screen
1 ed in for dancing, a minnture fountain
was attractively placed. In an opposite
. corner a bamboo hut. fitted inside with
rustic benches and pillows, formed a
popular resort between dances. Incense
throughout the house added au oriental
atmosphere. The programs were of
Japanese paper having hand painted
figures on the covers.
One of the main features of the even
ing was the supper served by Japanese

her stand out in clear relief, and one of
the most striking scenes in the entire
play was that between Clorin and the
impish, grotesque Satyr alone in the
dell with the whole scene bathed ;n
Professor Reddie as Satyr was a
welcome change from the sedate shep
herd folk and was. more than that, a
joy in his very difficult part. Pressed
to represent the satyr of olden times,
half beast and half man, he carried
out his role in every way, odd gesture
and attitude. The knee length trousers
and small heel caps of mottled fur, with
small horns and oddly curved and point
ed ears, with his body stained a yellow
ish brown he was grotesque in the ex
treme—a distinctly new departure in the
realm of costuming and characteriza
Miss Maurice Comedian.
| Paphis, played by Helen Braeht
! Maurice, lent the sole note of comedv
' to the situations with his rod headed
1 indifference and his complacent whistl
ings on the pipe o Pan, while Frances
Frater as Cleo, the maid who could love
anyone who happened to be first on the
ground, was typically petulant, as the
spoiled child of the shepherd family
should be. Charlotte Ilanfield had a
role which suited her well in Ameril
lis. and lent a charming color note in
her costume of crimson. A particularly
noticeable feature of her work, as well
as in (hat of Miss Margaret Crosby,
who played Alexis, was the charm of
her voice, which lacked the slightly
amateurish quality so often discernible.
Some difficulty was encountered in
catching the lines of the characters in
many cases, owing to the fact that so
much of the action of the play took
place at the rear of the stage.
The lighting effects were a particu
larly attractive feature and the most
striking of these was in the second act,
where at the parting of the curtains a
smoky, blood rod moon was seen hang
ing over the brow of the hill, the bran
ches of a fir tree cutting across it in
silhouette. In the last scene again
soft mauve and pink lights cast the glow
of sunset over the assembled shepherds,
lending an added beauty to their quaint
Pastoral Aotion Slow.
Any fault, which the play possessed
would seem to be inherent; true, it
had scant action, but the original pas
toral does not contain action. The
characters played their varying and dif
ficult roles with great accuracy, and
only once was prompting evident, which
is sayiug much for a production written
entirely in Intricate and beautiful poetry.
It is a difficult thing to manipulate
without disaster, flowing robes, garlands
of flowers and wigs on a stage which
is a mass of protruding tree branches;
it is likewise a difficult thing to speak
one's lines while treading on ground ns
uncertain, as a manufactured landscape
produces, and these thtings acted as
something of a stumbling block to
smoothness of action. The entire play
however was marked h.v an ease and
naturalness which was astonishing to
those who knew the difficulties of the
