JUNE 5, 1920
Board of Regents Meets in June
to Approve Officials’
$1,500,000 TOTAL BUDGET
Recitation Hall Near Education Build
ing and Women’s Dormitory
in Scheme
Two new* buildings will be ready for
use upon the campus by the opening of
the fall term if the June meeting of
the bohrd of regents approves the
present plans of the University offi
cials for remedying overcrowded con
ditions, according to Karl Onthank,
secretary of President Campbell.
These new buildings will include a
recitation hall to be erected on the
quadrangle of which the Education
building is the first unit, and a wom
en’s dormitory unit following out the
building plans which call in time for
four or five women’s dormitory build
ings facing a common court with Hen
dricks hall, and using the present din
ing room.
Specifications have not been drawn
up as yet, but both buildings will nec
essarily be comparatively small in
order that they may be completed in
time for the opening of the fall term.
The recitation building will help re
lieve the congestion in the present
buildings and from all indication» will
be greatly needed before another year,
according to Mr. Onthank. work on
the women’s building is also being
pushed in hopes that it. too, may be
available for use this fall, although it
may not be entirely completed. It is
probable that some of its rooms will
temporarily be used for purposes oth
er than originally intended until some
other means of meeting congested
conditions have ben provided. No
definite plans for its utilization have
been made so far, Mr. Onthank said.
First Step in Program.
The authorization of the two new
buildings now being sought from the
board of regents is the first step in a
comprehensice building program which
accordingto President Campbell will
probably provide for the expenditure
of nearly $1,500,000 in the next five
years. The program is designed to
provide the University with the build
ings most needed first and, as rapidly
as funds are available for this pur
pose. Among other additions to Ore
gon’s permanent halls a science build
ing can be looked for in the near fu
ture as well as some move to provide
adequate room for the University li
brary. Later in the program will come
more recitation buildings, • a modern
men’s gymnasium and the much need
ed auditorium to release Villard for
remodeling into recitation rooms.
Thus, according to President Camp
bell, does the University plan to meet
the obligation placed upon it by the
splendid vote of confidence of the
people of Oregon in the recent elec
tion A university extended along the
present lines and guided by the ideals
and traditions of Old Oregon, he feels,
will give the people the best returns
on the money they are investing in
Tiigher education. The internal de
velopment as regards standards of

Day to Be Given Over to the Cantata,
“The Rose Maiden” and Opera,
“Cavalleria Rusticana”
A complete rehearsal of the opera
“Cavalleria Rusticana,” and the can
tata “The. Rose Maiden,” to be given
June 7, 8, 9, will take place next
Sunday, when practically the whole
day will be given to it, according to
an announcement made by Mr. Albert
Lukken, director, at the last practice
of the "Cavalleria” Monday afternoon.
The rehearsal Monday afternoon
was one of action only, according to
the participants present at the last
drill, who said that the players are
progressing very well. One of the
most interesting features is, perhaps,
the “Drinking Scene” where much
stress is being placed upon the action
at rehearsal. A great deal of ex
citement was caused at the last re
hearsal of “Cavalleria” when the par
ticipants practiced the use of the dag
gers and the correct position of the
forceful thrust of death at the enemy.
Madame Rose McGrew, sourano solo
ist, who is to take an important place
in the opera, was unable to he pres
ent at the last rehearsal, but since
has been practicing with the group.
The outcome of the entire assem
blage Sunday is going to be the last
and best rehearsal of the year, ac
cording to the players participating.

Oregon Spirit Praised.
Chairman Cimons, of the football
committee of the Pasadena Tourna
ment of the Roses, spoke for a few
moments on Oregon’s football fame.
Mr. Simons is in the city visiting one
of his old college chums.
In speaking of the Oregon spirit he
said, “It is a thing I will not be afcle
to bottle and uncork when I get back
to California, for I understand there
is a law in Oregon which forbids the
bottling of spirits.” Mr. Simons said
that no matter where he heard of the
University of Oregon, he heard of the
Oregon spirit.
Stanford Anderson spoke briefly on
what the University had accomplished
during the past year, both in athletics,
debates and oratory. During the firift
tri-mester we accomplished two big
things, first, the wonderful football
record of the Oregon squad, and
Homecoming, which was by far the
grandest thing the University had ever
put over. The second tri-mester, he
said, we beat O. A. C. two games of
basketball, put into operation a new
point system tor student activities,
started work on the millage campaign,
established a new cut system, and
•won two debate championships. Dur
ing the present term the University
has annexed four Northwest titles, one
each for baseball, track, oratory, and
Co-op Plans Explained.
• Lyle McCroskey explained several
plans for a students’ co-operative store
next year. During the past school
year a great deal of difficulty has been
encountered in securing the necessary
textbooks and stationery*- supplies.
“Shy” Huntington spoke of the im
portance of getting the nest students
from the present graduating high
school classes to come to Oregon next
year. It should be an individual mat
ter with each student, he said, to get
the* best of the state to come to the
University. Huntington did not make
a plea for athletics alone, but for high
school students who stood high schol
astically as well as in athletics.
Graduate Manager Marion McClain
made a financial report for the year
as near as he could glean the figures
from the books of the secretary. The
fiscal year does not end until Septem
ber. The total income for the year
reached $51,328.21, including about
$9000, which was borrowed for the
work on the new athletic field. Total
expenditures for the college year
reached $50,370. When outstanding
bills had been met, Mr. McClain
thought the student body would come

Madame Rose McGrew Has No
Desire To Go Back Now But
Liked Work There
Milan and Paris Attract Many Who
Formerly Would Have Gone
to Kaiser’s Land
“Oh, no, I wouldn’t care to go back
to Germany now. I’m too American.”
As Madam Rose McGrew, who will
sing the leading soprano role in the
music festival next week, said it she
smiled engagingly, but in an after
thought added quickly, “However, I’m
glad that I went there for I know that
what I have will stand the test of
time. Germany is the hardest coun
try in the world to make good in be
cause the people are so imbued with
their own superiority, and one must
“Would I advise young American
music students to go to Germany to
study now? No; for there is too much
of a hurt feeling there now, and for
his own sake I would suggest that any
student wait for two or three years
before going to Germany. Very many
people, some of my own friends, are
going to Milan and to Paris, both of
which furnish wonderful opportunities.
“You know,” she continued, “it was
very strange the way I happened to
go there to study. We were living in
Denver, where I was in high school. A
German lady^ who sang in the choir
in our church was going back to Ger

Schwerin First Engagement
The first six months in Germany
were spent in learning the language,
but after that Rose McGrew traveled
about studying and perfecting her art.
Her first operatic engagement was at
Schwerin, the capital of the grand
duchy of Mecklenburg, where Madame
went after studying at Dresden. At
Schwerin she sany coloratura parts
in an old court theatre for three years,
at the end of that time going to the
Royal Theatre at Hanover, one of the
theatres owned by the emperor. It
was here that she commenced to sing
lyric parts such as Marguerite' in
Faust, Elza in Lohengrin, and Undine.
Dramatic roles took the place of
lyric parts when she had taken an
engagement at Breslau, in northeast
ern Prussia. During the last three
of the six years spent there she creat
ed many new roles which had not
been sung before, among them being
Strauss’ “Rose Cavalliera.” Her 12
years of grand opera in Germany com
pleted Madame McGrew started tra
velling as soloist with Frederick Neil
Innes, world famous bandmaster.

Fund For Women’s Building
May Be Filled This Month
Paul F. i Weidenheimer of Corvallis
Turns In Work for Term Thesis
“The Gray Boulder,” a novel of
175,0000 words was turned In as a
term thesis In the department of
rhetoric by Paul P. Weidenheimer, a
major in th department. Mr. Wei
denheimer, will graduate this June,
having finished the course in three
years taking two years of short
story writing. He applied for hon
ors this year. Next year he expects
to teach, and the following year hopes
to enter the profession of authorship,
according to Professor W. F. G.
Thaeher of the rhetoric department.
The story is entirely original and
although it has a plot the chief in
terest is centered about the develop
ment and revelation of a young boy
in a small community of Oregon.
Mr. Thaeher said the work is well
composed fictional material and
worthy of much credit and praise.
An enormous amount of effort has
been spent upon the production of
the book, he said which is only an
example of his year’s work which
has been consistently excellent. The
book will be submitted soon to the
publishers, lie said.

Only $10,000 Yet To Be Raised;
Structure To Be Ready
For Fall Term
Only $10,000 more remains to be
raised to complete the fund for the
erection of the Women’s Building.
This announcement was made by
Mrs. Irene H. Gerlinger, who is in
charge of the fund. It is hoped, she
said, that the announcement can he
made on commencement day that the
total amount has been subscribed.
The University has already turned
over three $25,000 payments on the
$100,000 fund to the state, according
to L. H. Johnson, comptroller. There
is at present $10,000 in the hands of
the University and an additional $5,
000 outstanding In pledges which
have not yet fallen due.
It is expected that the building
will be completed by the beginning
of the fall term. Work on the struc
ture was delayed somewhat during
the past few months, owing to the
shortage of brick. Sufficient material
is now on hand to allow the work to
proceed uninterrupted.
The completion of the Women’s
Building this year will mark the
close of a campaign for funds ex
tending over five years. The first
subscriptions to the fund were made
in 1915. Through an agreement with
the state, the University was to
match, through voluntary subscrip
tions, $100,000 voted for the building
by the state, making $200,000 in all.
Actual work on the building was
started last year. An appropriation
of $50,000 for furnishings was made
by the special session of the legisla
ture last winter.
