Creator of “The Pioneer” Says
Bronze Cast will be
Done in March.
The statue, “The Pioneer," which is
being presented to the University by the
Teal and Thompson estates in Portland
in memory of the late D. P- Thompson,
former regent of the University, will be
ready to be placed on the campus in
April. A. Phimister Proctor, American
sculptor, who was asked by Joseph N.
Teal, of Portland, to design ttte figure,
visited the University Tuesday and said
that the statue is now in Providence,
Rhode Island, being cast in bronze, and
will be completed by the middle of March.
Mr. Proctor came to the University to
select the rock to be used as the base
for the sfatue. He chose the large
boulder near Hay Ren bridge, which the
University committee selected about two
months ago. The rock will be brought
to the campus next month and the ce
ment foundation which will be placed un
der the boulder, will be started at that
SIzo to'be Heroic
The statue will be of heroic size, nine
feet in height. Mr. Proctor has shown
a pioneer with flowing beard and long
hair, dressed in buckskin clothes. The
man is walking and looks just as if ready
to take another step into the new coun
try, which he is seeking.
“He is not a pioneer who has arrived,”
Mr. Proctor said in describing his fig
ure- “He is just coming into the new
land, and he has what I like to call the
‘far-away’ look in his eyes.”
The man is carrying in his hand a whip
and a gun is slung over one shoulder.
“What I like about the figure,” Pro
fessor A. H. Schroff, of the faculty of
the school of architecture, said yester
day, “is that he is so typically American.
So many pioneers are shown who are
really not the true pioneer at all, but
Frenchmen, as shown by their pointed
beards, or men of some other country,
Finds Model In Wilds
Mr. Proctor started his work early in
1917. After several months, he found
for his model a hunter and trapper on a
ranch in Eastern Oregon, where he
started his modeling. Later, the two
went into the mountains of Idaho, then
to California, where Mr. Proctor com
pleted the plaster cast and sent it east.
The statue will be placed on the cam
pus between the library and Friendly
hall, facing Thirteenth street. Mr.
Proctor will return to the campus in
'April to superintend the placing of the
figure. Tile statue will be unveiled with
Mr. Proctor is working now on “The j
Indian Scout,” which will be placed in i

a companion to ‘The Buckaroo,” which i
is now in the east being cast in bronze, |
preparatory to being taken to Denver. I
Mr. Proctor left Wednesday morning |
for Palo Alto, where he -will continue his j
modeling of a young Indian whom he
found in Montana.

spices of the School of Music.
All the various functions of tht or
gan were called into action during the
program, which opened with “Two Cho
rale-Preludes,” by Bach-Busoni, a se
rious and dignified selection that met
with the hearty appreciation of the au
dience. Each of the five groups of the
evening was distinctive, following in
pleasing sequence. The three numbers
sung by Miss Lee in her rich contralto
voice to the accompaniment of the organ
were no less than inspiring. In the
“Boat Song,” by Ware, Miss Lee espe
cially distinguished herself, and was
forced to gratify the audience with an

Delightful variations of tones and sus
tained notes with counter airs character

Sonata,” by Gutlmant, in three parts, in
which the Vox Human and flute tones
formed a pleasing contrast. Largo “New
World” Sympathy, by Dvorak, the first ,
Of the third group, was played with
marked changes in time, going from the
\e-ij fast to the very slow, and the
Springtime Sketch," by Brewer, which
followed, was a true fairy dance. Sen
sitiveness of expression was especially
evident in the presentation of Guilmamt's
-Miss Lee sang the "Cry of Rachel,”
by Salter, supported by the organ, in
tull dramatic quality of voice. "The
Blind Ploughman,” by Clarke, was «
charming song given with a distinctness
of annunciation which allowed the au
dience to appreciate the full story of
the “Ploughman.” The old favorite.
“Deep River,” was sung by Miss Lee
as a final encore.
Two Modern Selections
Two modern selections formed the
last group of the evening. They were

Twenty People Here Answer
Plea of Miss Francklyn
to Adopt Children.
Twenty people of Eugene signified
their intention Tuesday to adopt war
orphans, accoring to Mrs. M. E. Mc
Clain, circulation librarian, who has
charge of this work. Miss Brenda Franek
lyn, official speaker for the society for
the relief of the children of France,
spoke for the war orphans of that coun
try and appealed to the people to adopt
or help adopt a child.
Miss Franckl.vn spoke to the students
of the Eugene high school, the University
high, the junior high, the ladies of the
Women's Alliance, the Episcopal Guild,
and before the Chamber of Commerce
while she was here on Tuesday.
“There are a number of people inter
ested in this work,” said Mrs. McClain,
“but the children seem to be doing more
than their elders.” Many of these have
their own little jobs, she said, and intend
to use their money in this way.
An instance was given by Miss Franck
lyn during one of her talks showing how
the French nation, poor and broken as it
is, responds to the needs of the govern
ment.*I)uring the last drive only one no
tice was put into the papers and the loan
was over-subscribed. There was no or
ganization to get the people to subscribe,
they needed only to be told that a loan
had been started.
Miss Francklyn left yesterday morning
for Corvallis, where she spoke before
the student body.

BOYS—GET YOUR NEW SPRING
Quality and Fit Guaranteed.
The upper part of the face
is what you notice first
when you meet a person. A
scowl there is often so dis
figuring tyiat it doesn’t
matter how attractive the
person otherwise appears—the scowl spoils it all.
In most cases scowls are the direct result of eye-strain.
Remove the strain and the scowl disappears. Other evi
dences of eye-strain and ocular muscular unbalance are pain
in or over the eyes, on the top or back of the head, in the
neck and between the shoulders, dizzy spells, indigestion, in
somnia, inability to concentrate the mind, also a tendency
to develop goitre.
