MUSIC AND LECTURE
SERIES IS WEED
Noted Figures in Art, Letters and
Public Life to be Brought
Here Next Year
An extraordinary music and lecture
course is planned for next year which
will give the students of the University
and towns people opportunity to hear
and see some of the most noted Ameri
can musicians and speakers. It is to
take the place of the lyceum course for
merly given by the Buceel circuit,
which has given up this field.
At a meeting in the Chamber of Com
merce last Tuesday, plans for this un
dertaking were made. There were pres
ent at the meeting representatives of
the University faculty, student body
Chamber of Commerce, Fortnightly
club, association of Collegiate alumnae,
Eugene public schools, The Ministerial
association and the Eugene Lyceum
course. The course is to consist of four
concerts and three lectures. For the
concerts there will be such prominent
artists as Theo Karl, tenor, and Leo
pold Godowsky, pianist. The speakers
will be persons of note, such as ex
President Taft, Ida Tarbell, associate
editor of McClure’s and otherwise fa
mous in the literary world; Irvin 8.
Cobb, short story writer and contribu
tor to the Saturday Evening Post, and
Thomas Sheyhill, who will lecture on
Gallipoli. There will also be a stringed
quartet or two.
Eugone people will possibly remember
that Theo Karl (Johnston) playcil the
hero part in “Hiawatha’s Wedding
Feast, ’ ’ given here several years ago by
the Philogian society.
The object of the course as expressed
by Dr. John Landsbury, Dean of the
University School of Music, is to cre
ate an interest- in music and bring be
fore the people of Eugene and the stu
dents, representatives of the best there
is in both musical and literary worlds.
Tickets for either the whole course or
individual concerts will be obtainable.
The price asked for the course will be
little more than one usually pays for
a single good concert in Portland. This
will be very small in comparison with
the great value received, according to

FRED DUNBAR TO RETURN
Former Student, Now in France
Expects to Reenter University
Fred Dunbar, ex-’16, of the Uni
versity and formerly reporter on the
Eugene Morning Register, in a letter
received by Karl Onthank, secretary
to President P. L. Campbell, this morn
ing states that he expects to take some
additional college work upon his return
to the United States from France.
His letter follows in part:
“Well I didn’t expect to be writing
to you from France on this date, but
such is the guerre. We have been
waiting here over six weeks now to
get on a boat and don’t seem to be any
nearer getting aboard now than before.
1 ‘ The other companies ahead of us
took from two to three weeks at the
port to get out by way of Brest and
St. Nazaire. I thing that their pro
gram of sending five divisions home
a month is keeping us here. We will
probably have to wait until they build
some more ships or convert the German
merchantile navy into transports. Well,
we still have hopes anyway.
“ As I wrote you before, I had hoped
to get in a little work at the “U"
this spring and summer. I am too late
for the spring work, but perhaps will
be able to do it this summer. I re
membered correctly the “U" adopted
the four semester plan within the last
year or so, thereby running a semester
through the summer, which ought to
give me a crack at it anyway."
On account of the delay in sailing,
Dunbar has asked for entrance to the
port school at Bordeaux but says he
has as yet heard* nothing of it.
“We are located here at a chateau,"
he says, “in the midst of the vinyard
region. It is very interesting for
awhile but 1 must say that personally J
1 lost my taste for Via Blanc some j
time ago, and I would rather see a
few wheat fields."
CAMPUS Y. WANTS HUT
Transference of Building Ownership
From National Order Sought
It was decided to ask the National
War Work council of the Y. M. C. A.
for the ownership of the Y. hut on the
campus, at the meeting of the advisory
board of the campus Y. M. C. A.
Thursday evening, according to Dr.
V. K. Caswell, president of the board.
A committee was also appointed,
with Dr. O. H. Edmondson, chairman,
Dean D. W. Morton, and Dr. A. E.
Caswell, to look into the matter of a
secretary for next year. The present
secretary is in the employ of the gov
ernment and a campus orginir.ation will
have to secure one for next year.
The Y. M. O. A. hut on the campus
belongs to the National War Work
council, with national headquarters at
New York city. The council will be
asked to gi\e a bill of sale for the
hut and its contents to the campus
Dean Walker Bumps
Chief of Police and
Digs $2 and Costs
With Dean 11. Walker as defendant
and Dean Louise Ehrmann as a witness,
the police court took on an unusually
high-brow atmosphere yesterday morn
ing. Mr. Walker had run afoul of the
law on Sunday morning, and Dean Ehr
mann had seen him do it.
It cost Mr. Walker just $2 and costs
to bump into the chief of police with
his automobile at Eleventh and Will
amette. This amount, in the judgment
of Miss Grace Stearns, city recorder,
adequately covered the damages.
According to the story told in court
the graduate manager was driving his
automobile past a street car when the
trouble occurred. It was Sunday morn
ing and he did not think anyone would
be alighting from the car at that par
ticular time. However, a woman
church-goer, with her baby, was get
ting off, and the graduate manager had
thrust upon him the choice of running
down the woman or Chief of Police
Christensen. The chief was elected,
and the car was brought to a stop just
off one of the law guardian’s feet.
Being quite familiar with the city
ordnance, the chief had it borne in on
his attention that when a street car is
turning a corner any vehicle coming in
the opposite direction must pass to the
right. This, according to the com
plaint, was not done by Mr. Walker’s
WOMEN TWO TO ONE
OVER MEN IN CUSS
Percentage of Girls Smaller Than
in Last Year; 27 of 19’s
According to the list of students who
have already filed their petitions for
graduation, the women of the senior
class outnumber the men two to one,
which is an increase in the number of
men graduating, over that of last year
when the figures stood three to one in
favor of the co-eds. Of the 110 who
have already applied, 73 are women and
In the last two years the class of 1919
has remained practically the same with
regard to the number of its members.
There were 128 juniors registered in
the University last year, and there are
approximately 130 students in the grad
uating class this year. This feature
shows that the number of incoming stu
dents has balanced with the withdraw
als in the upperclass ranks. Unless
something unusual happens within the
few weeks before commencement, this
year’s senior class will not make a rec
ord in membership, as there were 124 in
the 1917 class and 131 in the 1918 class.
Among the students registered for
graduation up to date, 27 are from
Portland and 27 have their homes in
Eugene. For the most part the other
50 per cent of the class c-ome from other
towns in the state. Eight members are
from outside states and countries. They
are as follows: Two from California,
two from Washington, two from Iowa,
one from Wisconsin, and one from
Natural sciences seem to be the most
popular general courses for both men
and women. English literature comes
next. Closely followed by Romance
languages, journalism and rhetoric.
Mrs. Laura Beck, of Portland is the
oldest student in the class and in the
Ada R. Hall, who has submitted her
petition for a masters degree this June,
has received a fellowship from the
University of Illinois for the coming
year, through the assistance of V. E.
Shelford, professor of ecology at that
institution. Miss Hall will be working
toward her doctor’s degree, which re
quires two years.
GIRLS HANDY WITH BOWS
Archery Is Becoming Favorite Sport
Among University Women
Archery is one of the favorite sports
among University women this spring,
according to Miss Harriet Thompson,
instructor, who says that there are
several girls in her class who could vie
with Dan Cupid himself when it comes
to using the bow and arrow.
The best individual archers are Mar
ion Bowen, a junior, who won the yew
bow last year in the spring contest,
and Dorothy Lowry, a sophomore, who
is just beginning the work but who
shows unusual ability to hit the elusive
tri-pod, Hiss Thompson says.
There are three sections of archers
this term and the classes are very large
Miss Thompson stated. The 2 o ’clock
and 5 o’clock groups are doing excel
lent work she says, while the 4 o ’clock
sections have much more difficulty in
The archery contest will be held
sometime in May when the yew bow
will be awarded again by the Women’s
Athletic association to the highest point
PRACTICE GAMES OFFERED
W. E. Millikin, coach of baseball in
the Eugene high school, announced to
day his willingness to stack his high
school youngsters against any of the fra
ternity nines in the doughnut league on
any evening convenient to both teams.
In this way, he says, both the preppers
and the University men can obtain
much needed practice. A telephone mes
sage to the Eugene high school office
will reach Mr. Millikin.
