GIRLS' GLEE RETURNS;
flECEPTION IS HEARTY
III SOUTHERN OREGON
Club Members Well Satisfied
With Trip; Home Concert
Booked For April 16
Tired, hut satisfied, the members
of the Girls’ Glee Club arrived in
Eugene at 4:00 o’clock this morning
on the special car which had carried
them on their eight-day concert tour
through Southern Oregon. Members
of tlm Glee Club interviewed this
morning expressed themselves as
more than satisfied with the trip.
“We were treated everywhere witli
wonderful hospitality,” said several
members of the club. “People in
the different towns did everything to
make us feel at home.” The attend
ance at the concerts in nearly every
town was very large and the club
has cleared expenses by a large
a special car carried me uiee
Club on the entire tour. Dean Fox
aB official chaperon, Leland Coon
as musical director, Vincent Engled
Inger as accompanist ,and Jolin Hunt
as business manager, accompanied
the club. In nearly every town spec
ial entertainment in the way of lun
cheons, dances and auto trips was
provided by residents.
The Glee Club played to large aud
iences at nearly every town. In one
place bookings had been confused
and the concert was scheduled to oc
cur at the high school instead of the'
theatre, while the Glee Club mem-!
bers were sent to a boarding house,
instead of private homes. But the
mix up was straightened out and the
concert did take place at the theatre
while residents of the town hospit
ably opened their homes. “We didn’t
mind the boarding house experience,"
said one of the Glee Club members.
“The onions were wonderful.”
At one of the towns the concert
made such a hit that the stage man
ager, who was theatre owner, prop
erty manager, and curtain raiser
combined, became so enthusiastic lie
lost his false teeth and in the ex
citement forgot to lower the curtain.
Concerts were held at Oakland on
March 30; Roseburg, March 31;
Grants Pass, April 1; Medford, April
2; Ashland, April 3, and Klamath
Falls, April 4 and 5. Two concerts
were held at Klamath Falls.
The homo concert of the Glee Club
will be held April 1(1 at the Eugene
Theatre where the concert tour pro-1
gram will be repeated.

Prospects Look Dubious
With the opening of the confer
ence season hut two weeks away
and the rain keeping the team in ,
doors the whole month of March
Coach Huntington is wearing a dub
ions look these days when asked
about tlu> prospects "t think we
have one of the best teams in the
conference this season,” he said this
morning, "hut we are go iff ft to be
up against it for practice. Caltfor
nia. Stanford and <). A. C. have all
been practicing for the last two or
three months and have their first
string men working out together reg
ularly. while we are still handicapped
by this rotten weather"
"Shy" is well pleased with the
wealth of good material which he
has to work with this season and
competition lias been exceptionally
keen for practically every position
on the nine. “We will have a bet
ter team this season than we have
had for years,” he said this morn
ing when asked about the calibre of
this season's squad compared with
that of the past few years. "But
then, so are the other teams in the
conference and we cannot hope for
much along that line.”
First Game April 23
California, Stanford and O. A. C.
all have conference g*mes to their
credit so far this season, and the
northern teams will open the season |
when Oregon starts with the Sun- j
dodgers in Seattle on April 23 and
24. playing two games also with
Idaho, Washington State and Whit
man. California took two games
from the O. A. C. nine while Stan

two game series in the South. Cali
