teresting,” said Miss Fields, "and, I

we can exchange ideas and keep in touch
with each other.”
“This exchange bureau.” she said "will
be very helpful to all of the women’s
leagues and will enable them to work
together in solving different problems.
Each league will know just bow the
others have met different situations and
can govern themselves accordingly., and,
the exchange will prove both interest
ing and helpful.

Perhaps no professor in connection
with the University can boast of having
People from so many walks of life rep

fessor T. J. Bolitho in his extension di
vision classes held in Portland. *
Among those taking the accounting
courses in his Portland classes Professor
Bolitho says there are attorneys,
United States internal revenue men, of
fice managers, public accountants, bank
clerks, post office clerks, commercial
school teachers and many city employees;
these representing some of Portland’s
most prominent business men.
The classes are for the most part
made up of middle-aged men and women,
according to Mr. Bolitho, who are seek
to get a step higher in their, partic
ular line of work? although there are
some few taking the courses as graduate
and undergraduate work for college
credit, he says.

LANDSBURY TO ACT AS
ACCOMPANIST ON TOUR
Dean of Music Will Make Trip With
Arthur Middleton In De
Dean John J. Landsbury of the school
'of music will go with Arthur Middleton.,
Metropolitan Opera Company, bass, in
the capacity of accompanist on the lat
ter s concert tour. He expects to leave
about the first of December, and will be
away practically all the month.
Dean Landsbur.v intends to do no solo
work on this tour. The first engage
ment will be in Itoise, Idaho, on Decem
l^ei 3, and Middleton has an engagement
in Spokane, Washington, hut beyond
this Dr. Landsbur.v does not know’ where
the tour will take hint.
The trip, Dr. Landsbur.v' says, is
frankly in the nature of a vacation. Dr.
Landsbury has been with the University
for six years, and in that time has not
'.been able to get away even during the
summer. He has been working on the
plans for the new music building, and
now that it is well under way, lie says.
,'ho feels that his work has lightened suf
ficiently to allow him a vacation.
Campaign Planned for Week
A systematic drive will be conducted
during the week following the Thanksgiv
ing vacation to bring the 400 students
on the campus eligible to membership in
the Men’s Oregon Club into the organ
ization, according to Phil Ilrogan. chair
man of the membership committee and
treasurer of the club.
“It is our intention to make the men
students who are not affiliated with
campus housing organizations realize
that unless they come out of their seclu
sion and take part in college activities
through the Oregon club they will be
classified as Oregon Spirit slackers.”
stated Brogan. Preceding the drive ex
tensive advertising will be carried on by
' “There are some 400 students here
at Oregon who are eligible for member
ship iff the Oregon club,” said Barney
Garrett, president of the club. These
men are scattered in various parts of
Eugene, living in groups of five or six
members. It is a difficult task for the
membership committee to ferret each
person out individually and demonstrate''
to him that Oregon Spirit can be pro
moted more advantageously by co-opera
tion through a centralized organization
than by any other method.” ,
“Conditions which make such an or
ganization as the Oregon club necessary
are the same which handicap us in con
ducting a successful membership drive,”
Norton Winnard, chairman of ibe en
tertainment committee, is arranging for
an Oregon Club smoker, which probably
will be held on December 4. This smoker
will serve as an appropriate culmination
for t.be membership drive. Late/ in the
school year a dance will be held, and in
the spring a picnic in the nature of a
mix between the Girl’s Oregon club and
the Men’s Oregon club has been sug

HENRY 8 WALTHALL
HERE SOON IN GHOSTS’
Famous Screen Actor Coming to Eugene
Theatre Thursday; Play of
Henry B. Walthall, known nationally
as an American screen star, is to present
the static production of Henrik Ibsen’s
“Ghosts” on Thursday night at the Eu
This simple announcement wfll nwakcn
anticipations of pleasure in the minds of
countless theatregoers for reasons too
numerous to enumerate in space of
small compass. It seems late in the day
to speak of Mr. Walthall ns being the
most popular movie player in America.
Reams of white paper have been covered
with eulogistic essays that have lauded
the personality of the actor, his charm,
his manner, and that innate something
which it has for so long been the fash
ion to designate for the want of a bet
ter term as personal magnetism. With
out entering into a dissertation on the
qualities which have made for Mr. Walt
hall success, there is no gainsaying that
j lie stands in a class by himself as an
| interpretative actor of the higher lights
and shadings of the amusement urofes
sion. In presenting Ibsen’s “Ghosts”
Air. Walthall is carrying out his policy
tof trying to please all class’s of tliee’re
goers, including those who incline toward
the classics. Ibsen is one of the great
est known dramatists to the stage, even
though his plays are not often in tour,
ami for this later reason it will be quite
n treat for lovers of the Norwegian
playwright to witness one of his acliieve
! ments. and in viewing “Ghosts” one
sees what is commonly acknowledged :rs
his masterpiece, both from a dramatic
standpoint and from "the great moral
lesson it conveys.
Mr. Walthall’s supporting company is
one. of exceptional merit, and is remark
able for names that spell big favor
among theatrical and screen patrons. The
list includes William Clifford. Mary
C'harleson. Arthur Rutledge, and Eliza
beth De Witt. *
