The other day the house manager oi
a certain fraternity forgot to order th«
daily meat. He phoned to the market
and they promised to send out the meal
by a messenger boy. Evidently the boy
was delivering a package of flowers on
the same trip, because stuck to the

Class Decides Against Dress
Suits for This Year; for
Formal Hereafter
The Junior Prom will be an informal
dance. There will be no dress suits,
flowers nor taxis this year but the
junior class will go on record as favor
ing a formal prom in the future. The
class reached this decision at a special
meeting Friday afternoon in Villard
Only 1000 tickets are being printed
as it is hoped by the committee in
charge that the armory will not be too
crowded. "We expect to have an ex
ceptional dance,” said Harry Jamjeson,
president of the class. ‘‘The programs
are very different from any that we
have had before. The idea for the fea
ture is entirely original and is going
to work out fine. Although the music
has not yet been arranged for the com
mittee promises that it shall be the best
obtainable. ’ ’
Another feature of Junior Week-End
will be the canoe fete. Morris Morgan
is in charge and he hopes that each
entry will be original ad different.
There are very few canoes so the fra
ternities and classes will have the
only entries. Several have reported
that work has already started on the
plans for the decoration of the canoes.
The military bridge will be removed so
that the floats can pass without dan
ger of upsetting. Ned Fowler has
charge of the junior canoe.
Merle Margason is busy trying to
work up some class spirit for a swim
ming meet, a canoe race and the fresh
man and sophomore tug-of-war. He also
plans an exhibition of fancy diving
from the platform on the mill race.
Swimming and canoeing teams have not
been organized and any one wishing to
participate should see Margason at
The baseball games on Wednesday
and Thursday afternoons will be with
O. A. C. Saturday’s track meet will
also be with the agricultural school.
A matinee dance Monday after
noon from four to six for all women
in the University in the out door
court of the woman’s gymnasium has
been announced by Madeline Slot
boom, chairman. It is to be a spon

Red Cross Officer With 91st
Will Tell of Experiences
While Overseas
Colin V. Dyment, former professor
of journalism here and recently re
turned from service overseas as a
lieutenant with the Red Cross con
nected with the 91st division, will he
the speaker for the assembly next
Wednesday morning. Dvment is at
present director of the school of jour
nalism at the University of Washing
ton. t
“Mr. Dyment is a most interesting
speaker,” said Karl Onthank, secre
tary to President Campbell, who made
the announcement of his coming, “and
he has a great deal of exceptionally
.good material to speak from.” Mr.
Dyment knew intimately many of the
Oregon boys in the 91st division, and
his story of the action of that divi-;
sion will be doubly interesting to the
University people. His work with the
Red Cross was that of searcher for the
wounded and dead. His history of the
action of the division is now running
in the Portland Oregonian.
Among other speakers scheduled for
the assemblies for this term is Bishop
Walter T. Sumner of Portland. There
are several outstanding invitations
which have not yet been answered, Mr.
Onthank says.
One of the remaining assembly per
iods will be taken up with the final

Dr. Shinn Given Surprise by Students
of His Department
To have a surprise party on his birth
day and nearly not attend, was the ex
perience of Dr. F. L. Shinn, of the
j chemistry department Thursday after
i noon.y
It happened this way; Miss Rieta
i Hough, Clyde Mison and Nels Carlson,
I assistants in chemistry, found out that
1 Dr. Shinn was to have a birthday and
: decided to give him a party. Students
of the department were told to come
to the laboratory at five, when Dr.
; Shinn would be asked down.
All was going well, the tea was being
! brewed over a bunsen burner and the
lab. was all dressed up with flowers,
when about a quarter to five it was
discovered that the guest of honor had
unsuspectingly gone down town.
He was hotly pursued in an auto but
a thorough search of the streets failed
to locate him. However, shortly after
five he serenety walked into the trails
formed lab. where the thirty students
welcomed him. The whole party in
dulged freely in tea which they im
bibed from beakers through glass
Dr. Shinn responded to a toast from 1
Bill ReBee and the party adjourned.
Cast of Rollicking Comedy by
Shaw Makes Most of
‘ ‘ Androeles and the Lion, ’ ’ given
at Guild hall last night, by the stu
dents of Dramatic Interpretation, un
der the direction of Mr. Reddie, is the
first University performance given in
the hall this year and was a decided
The lion roared, the six-weeks’ old
pup yawned widely, and the meekest
of tailors fnd most henpecked of men,
cavorted about the stage with the fero
cious king of beasts.
Shaw’s delicious comedy, full of rich
lines of satire and ‘pure fun gave the
cast a rare chance to bring but all the
juicy humor hidden therein.
The part of Androeles, the henpecked
tailor, taken by Norvell Thompson,
was played with an almost uncanny un
derstanding of the situation; with a
finish that would have been creditable
to a much more experienced actor. The
tailor showed beyond a* doubt that the
most henpecked of the henpecked tribe
might do wonders with a beast of such
ferocity that Caesar himself stood in
abject fear of it.
Houston Portrays Caesar
The mighty Caesar was especially
well done by John Houston, with the
pomp and dignity due that most es
teemed emjleror. The role of Lavinia,
the beautiful head of the Christian
martyrs, was taken by Helen Purring
ton, who laughed at the handsome cap
tain of the guards so bewitchingly and
was so human at times in spite of her
ideas of martyrdom that she quite won
over the audience. Hester Hurd as
the fat and garrulous wife of friend
tailor brought a laugh from her first
entrance in the prologue when she rails
at her husband for being a martyr in
stead of a respectable incense burning
The Christian Ferocious was all that
his name implied. A ferocious man
surely was Cres Maddock as the strong
would-be martyr whose temper forever
got the best of him. Whenever his deep
voice poured forth in ponderous meas
ured tones the attention of the audi
ence was on him alone. In contrast was
the fop, Lentulius, who was just as fop
pish as a Roman of that description
could well be. The part was well done
by Roy Veatch.
Mr. Reddie Is the Lion
Last of all, the Lion—or rather that
expressive roar which issued from the
lions head—inquiry found to be played
by* Mr. Reddie. Too much cannot be
said in praise of the dumb beast in his
royal affection to Androeles, with cor
responding ferocity towards the others,
and the enjoyment afforded the audi
ence hereby.
And perhaps a word might be said
concerning the other dumb animal of
the cast, who received much apprecia
tion from the audience, the tailor's pup,
perhaps a bit sleepy and bored with the
whole performance due to the late hour
for a very young pup, but surely a born
Most Members Interviewed See Necessity of Organizing
Against War-Difficuities Recognized-One Sees
Peril Unless All Lands Are Included
Congressman Hawley’s speech at the
assembly Wednesday started a great
deal of discussion on the subject of the
United States entering the League of
Nations and what good the League
would do for its participants. Whether
the League would cause lasting peace,;
and the object for which it is supposed- j
ly founded, is the moot question, on
which members of the faculty express
varying opinions.
- Following the are opinions of faculty
members interviewed:
President Campbell: “I hope that
the League of Nations will be ratified
by all of the countries interested in
it. It seems the only alternative to
the necessity of maintaining a large
standing army and incurring all of the
corresponding dangers of war. I feel
sure that under the criticism which has
come upon the plan of the league, such

Scientists To Take
Little Journey Into
Stone Age Realism
Members of the science group in the
faculty of the University will trans
port themselves bodily into the Stone
Age for a day, for scientific purposes
solely, within the near future. In an
exclusive meeting in primitive sur
roundings in the woods somewhere near
Eugene, they will demonstrate how
cave men dressed, lived, cooked, ate,
played and slept.
The principal actor, who will repre
sent the true cave man, with all the
oW-time implements and dressed in
strictly accurate scientific period cos
tume, will bo Dr. Warren D. Smith, pro
fessor of geology. Assisting him will be
William Rebec and Sophus Winther,
The time and placo of the meeting
are being kept a dark secret. There will
bo no guest list, the spectators being
members of the club, which is a society
of intellectuals among the faculty and
students, the membership being limited
to less than two dozen. No motion pic
tures will be taken. ,
Stone implements will be taken from
the geology museum; and with no
matches, no stove, no pans, no flour, no
salt, no knives except stone ones, these
exponents of the primitive age will pre
pare a dinner which the members of the
club have pledged themselves to eat.
K. K. K. to Stage Big Event in
Men’s and Women’s Gym’s
Next Saturday Night
Preliminary arrangements for the K,
K. K., which will be staged in the
men’s and women’s gymnasium next
Saturday night are well under way, he
cording to, Dow Wilson, chairman of
the general committee, and already the
various events of the big joy fest are
taking a form which gives promise that
the occasion will bo one of tho live
liest and jazziest of tho collogo year.
The committee which is working un
der Wilson is composed of Ores Mail
dock, Dot Medley and Carl Nelson. Spe
cial committees to look after tho dance,
sideshows, eats, program and other
parts of the big program, have been ap
pointed and are now busy lining up
their parts of the evening’s fun.
Brick Mitchell has been appointed
justice of the peace and chief of police
and will have working with him such
famed bouncers and fly bulls as, Ruth
erford, Taylor and Brandenburg.
Gym to be Dance Hall
Speaking of the program in general1
Manager Wilson explains that the I
women’s outdoor gymnasium will be!
converted into a dance hall for the
evening and the men’s gymnasium will j
be the big circus pavillion, where a
multitude of sideshows, stunts, eating
joints will hold hway. The joy seeking'
multitudes will seek pleasure in both
natatoriums, the pjice of admission al
lowing them entrance to both fests. A j
carnival like spirit will reign supreme
throughout the evening. Confetti will
be thrown, bands will play, pop corn,
hot dogs and pink lemonade will every
where flow as doos the rain from Ore
gon skies. King Joy will wave his
wand over the campus and set in motion
millions of little pep bugs which will
creep beneath the skin of every Ore
gon man and woman.
Many Sideshows Planned
A grand total of 13 sideshows are be
ing worked on by different organiza
tions. They are all being kept a dark
secret, of course, but in tho future at
least tho names of the organizations
who will stage them will be announced.
Closing Recital of College Year to be
Given In Villard Hall
The symphony concert which will be
given by the University Orchestra un
der the leadership of Robert Louis Bar
ron, Sunday afternoon at .3:30, in Vil-i
lard hall, will be' another rpusical land
mark of the year on the campus. This
will be the last opportunity to hear the
orchestra in recital until next year.
Miss Eleanor Lee, contralto, will sing
a selection from “Sampson et Dalila,”
and Harrison Devereaux will give a cel
lo solo, accompanied by the orchestra. 1
Muddy Field Makes Season’s
Scheduled Baseball Start
Sheehy May Turn Out Again for
Team; Frosh in Good Time
for “Rook” Contest
The baseball game scheduled be
tween the varsity and the Multnomah
club team, of Portland, for this /after
noon, has been postponed until next
Saturday in the hope that the weather
will be better to stage the contest. The
season will probably be opened next
Friday with a game between William
ette University and the varsity. This
game has not been definitely decided
upon at yet but is being considered by
the two colleges.
The conference season will open
Monday and Tuesday, April 28 and 29,
when O. A. C. will be met on Cemetery
ridge. May 7 and 8 will be the dates
for the first two contests with the
University of Washington, which will
serve as a forerunnor for Junior Week
End. The following week, May 15 and
16, the Oregon team will play Washing
ton in Seattle. There is also some talk
of getting a contest with Camp Lewis
while on this northern trip and Dean
Walker will probably have an answer
in a few days. The last two games
with O. A. C. are billed for May 30
and 31 at Corvallis, and June 4 and 5
aro set aside for the University of Col
ifornia team, which will be entertained
here on their trip north.
Varsity and Frosh to Play
This afternoon, if old J. Pluvus holds
off long enough, the varsity and the
freshmen were scheduled to go a round
or two just to koep in condition. From
the bench it looks as if the freshmen
could wallop the varsity if they had a
real batting order and some signals
that would work. There are some
mighty sweet looking ball players on
that freshmen team and they can give
the varsity a real run for their money
any day in the week.
The freshman team will play at least
two games with the Aggie “Rooks”
during the season and unless the Cor
vallis bunch of infants are near big
leaguers they are in for a couple of the
most royal razzings that they have yet
received. The freshmen will also prob
ably take a two days’ trip into the
heart of the wilds around the state
capital and play the Salem high school,
Chemawa, and the state pen.
The freshmen track team will jour
ney to Corvallis on May 16, where they
will hold a dual meet with the Aggie
Frosh. O. A. C. has at least one track
man that is an almost sure winner and
that is Snook, former Jefferson high
star. The Oregon team should compare
favorably with the Aggies on the
track and the meet has promise of be
ing very close.
Sheehy May Tackle Third
There is a rumor floating around the
gvrn to the effect that one James
Sheehy, third baseman on the Oregon
team last season, will be out in uni
form again within the next week or
ten days. With the return of Jimmie
the team should take on additional
class. Sheehy is an outfielder but was
brought in last season and stationed
at third. If Jimmie comes back into
tho game he will probably take the
third station, which will greatly
strengthen the aggressive ability of the
Houston has been going all right at
tlprj as far as the fielding goes but he
has not been able to bat at all. Sheehy
is not a slugger but he is a fairly con
sistent' hitter and can place the ball
nicely. It will not weaken the defense
of the team by putting Sheehy at
third, as he is as clever a fielder as
