SENIOR APPEARS IN RECITAL AT
Talent Shown in Dlfflccult Selections
—Patty French and Leland
Among the best received musical
events of the year was that heard
Tuesday night at the First Methodist
church when Curtiss Peterson, a sen
ior in the University, appeared in
recital. Mr. Peterson, who is a
gifted soloist, possessing a baritone
voice of unusual quality, has ap
peared before in Eugene, but perhaps
this was his best recital. He was
assisted in his program by Patty
French, at the piano, who acted as
his accompanist, and by Leland Coon,
at the pipe organ.
According to music critics, Mr.
Peterson’s numbers were all very well
rendered, and some of his selections
were especially good. Perhaps his
best number was the aria “It is
% Enough” from “Elijah”. The selec
tion is very difficult and the person
singing it has a remarkable oppor
tunity to display his talents. Mr.
Coon accompanied Mr. Peterson on
the pipe organ for this number.
Another number which attracted a
great deal of. attention and called
forth hearty applause from the aud
ience was “Punchinello” by Molloy.
This selection was entirely different
from most of the others and gave
opportunity for Mr. Peterson to show
the wide range in his voice.
Mr. Peterson has been very active
in musical circles during his Uni
versity career, and has studied in
the University school of music for
the past six years. He is member
of Beta Theta Pi fraternity and has
been a member of the men’s glee
club for the past four years. Mr.
Peterson will continue his vocal work
in New York next winter, and
friends predict a decidedly brilliant
future for him in the musical world.

should organize and support a party
of its own”, is the subject chosen

be held in Corvallis and here about

TEACHERS’ UNION OPPOSED
Members of Educational Society De
bate Federation Question
Members of Phi Kappa Delta, local
honorary educational socity, went on
record as not favoring the affiliation
of teachers with the Atnerican Fed
eration of Labor, at their last meet
ing held Friday night, at which time
the question was debated.
Harold Benjamin presented the ar
guments on the affirmative and Wil
liam Hoppes took the negative. After
these papers were presented the ques
tion was discussed informally by all
present and a vote was taken.
It was decided that such a connec
tion would not be advantageous as
teachers could not use the methods
employed by labor organizations, such
