payment of Outstanding Bills
i Compels Retrenchment
by Student Body.
The policy of economy in student body
finances must continue this term, decid
ed the executive committee at its meet
ing; yesterday afternoon.
; "We must retrench now,” said Dean
Walker. "The students thought that it
would not be necessary this term, since
the war is over, but the payment of all
outstanding bills encroached on the
spring Vudget and we must continue to
"Every activity must be cut down
somewJf.t. but none will be curtailed.”
•he explained. The organzations have
been following the policy of fewer trips,
which mi st be continued.
According to the present state of stu
dent body finances, it will be impossible
also to grant trophies, such as sweaters,
letters and pins, to participants in the
various student body activities.
"The sacrifice of these trophies is
’or the genera] good,” said Dean Walk
D is not the idea of the execu
tive committee to rob the students of
•hrsn things and we do not want anyone
Vi fee1 that.” The boys will get their
letters next year when the student
tinances will undoubtedly permit it.
Martha Tinker, Melba Williams,
Ada McMurphy Score
in Song Recital.
That Oregon-, numbers among its stu
dents three talented women was demon
strated last evening when Martha Tink
er, mezzo-soprano, Melba Williams,
dramatic soprano and Adah McMurphy
■Lyric soprano, pupils of Arthur Faguy
Cote, head of the vocal department in
the University School of Music, appear
ed in recital in the Auditorium of the
Y. M. C. A. hut, ✓
Miss Tinker s first number was an
aria in French, “Adieu Forets” from
Tsehaikowsky. This was perhaps her
strongest selection. The wide range and
difficult passages were executed re
markably well. She also sang “The Maids
of Cadiz,” by Delibes; “The Nile” and
,‘Spring .Reverie,” both by Xavier Re
• oux. All three songs were well received
by the audience.
Of Miss Williams’ songs perhaps the
peculiar swing of the soft, slow “Hindu
Slumber Song” by Harriet Ware was
test suited to her voice. The arai “Love
and Music” from "Tosca” by Puccini
gave her an opportunity to use her
wide range of tones. Her other numbers
were “Come Out, Mr. Sunshine” by
Paul Bliss and “Your Iviss” by Fay Fos
ter, both of them pleasing.
Miss McMurphy’s little French song,
“L Ete” by Chaminade was her best se
lection and though the range was wide,
Miss McMurphy sang with excellent
tone. The aria “One Fine Day,” from
“Madam Butterfly” by Puccini was also
well executed. Her other songs were
“Like a Rosebud” by Frank LaForge and
“Before My Window” by Rachmaninoff.
The recital is the first of several to
be given by students of Mr. Cote during
the year. When the next concert will ;
be given has not been announced.
