57 Kinds of Organizations
Prominent In Student
SOCIAL SCIENCE WORK
CARRIED ON IN STATE
Every Department Has At
Least One Society; Others
kave Five Clubs.
Nowhere is the gregarious instinct of
man more predominant than in the
banding together of students, the
forming of clubs and societies, diverse
m their purposes and activities. A com
prehensive survey completed yesterday,
shows that there are 57 kinds of clubs,
societies, and honor fraternities now on
the campus, indicating the versatility of
“We are the most live wire organiza
tion on the campus” said Dean Bovard
when asked what the University Science
club was doing. Since there are 57
varieties of clubs and honor fraternities
on the University campus many are
willing to argue with Dean Bovard as
to which is most a> rn ■ \nost ever*
department has at least ' one club or
honor society and some departments
have as many as five organizations.
Good Work Done.
The University Science club is un
doubtedly doing a great work for the
state as well as for the University. Its
object is to encourage scientific re
search by faculty and students and in
this effort co-operates with all other
scientific, societies. The dub is re
sponsible for the formation of the Re
search Committee that secured the re
search fund from the state which is
used to aid and Stimulate research work.
Students may be elected to honorary
membership in the society after they
have shown marked ability in research
work. The society holds open meet
ings at which addresses are given upon
the results of research work.
The'University Social Science club is
doing similar work but along the line of
social science. Interesting speakers are
secured for their open meetings and they
also encourage investigation among
members and students.
Musical Clubs Active.
The activities of the various musical
organizations are perhaps more fully
realized by the students than are those
of any other organizations on the cam
pus. It is the Oregon Music Council
that has made it possible for us to
hear such artists as Paul Altliouse. The
Council was organized less than a year
ago and is made up of' all students who
have had one year’s work <m glee club,
orchestra or band. Its object is to
promote better music nol only at the
University but throughout the entire
state so far as is possible.
The University orchestra is planning
to give another of its Sunday after
noon concerts in the near future, prob
ahlv in about six weeks. The feature
numbers of this concert will be a Greig
Concerto and- a part of Beethoven’s
First Symphony. Jane Thacher \|11 be
the piano soloist for the concert.
The orchestra will appear in concert
at Cottage Grove on February 18. and
it is hoped that they will give a home
concert sometime before the spring vaca
tion. New instruments are constantly
heint^ added, the latest addition being a
hass clarinet of superior quality.
Glee Clubs Appear.
t he Men’s Glee club appeared in con
cert iu Portland recently and ^scored an
unusual triumph. The women appeared
>u Springfield last week in a very suc
cessful concert. They will re^at this
concert, at the Eugene theater in March.
I he band is doing regular work and stu
dents are looking forward to hearing
them in. concert soon.
Mu l’hi Epsilon is also doing active
"'ork in promoting better music. A re
cital by its members was given in the
1 dumber of Commerce rooms a short
time ago and was very much enjoyed "by
the townspeople and students who were

Versatility, Generosity and
of Paul Althouse Concert
(By Madame Rose E. McGrew.)
With all the versatility, generosity and
spontaneity of a still young and* truly
great artist, Paul Althouse sang at Vil
lard hall Thursday night to a crowded
house. He gave us the very best of all
the good he has to give. No man can
hope to get closer to the pulse of his
nation than when he sings heart to
heart to a throng of his young enthus
iastic fellow countrymen. Paul Alt
house is one of us and our greatest real
all-American tenor. His training has
been American, his teacher Percy Rec
tor Stephens of New York ranking as
high as any instructor in the country.
Now it is high time that America
should awake to a sense of national pride
in its own musicians and honor them,
whenever and wherever occasions pre
sent themselves. And such spontaneity
as reigned in Villard Thursday evening
should awaken within the breast of many
of our gifted students the wish and the
will to go and j}o likewise.
Bury the phrase of the prophet and
his own country and begin to . hunt for
our own people who give us the hours of
wonderful exultation and mentally slap
them on the back saying, “Go to it —
we’re here on the side lines cheering
Paul Althouse possesses all the good
qualities whoch go to make a great sing
er. He is not only a man of great
natural talent but a man who works in
He in not only as great a tenor as the
Metropolitan Opera House possesses, he
is their best linquist, counting Russian
among his accomplishments. His Ital
ian and French diction is faultless.
When the courtesy of the Elwyn Con
cert Bureau in Portland made Mr. Alt
house’s appearance in Eugene a possibil
ity, the undertaking seemed, at that time,
so vast as to be absurd. Last night’s
attendance and the enthusiasm of the
audience throughout the evening, gave
us courage to undertaka more con
certs of like magnitude. It is a wonder
ful thing to see the young people rise
to the occasion and it pays no small
tribute to their own good taste.
Mr. Althouse also showed discrimina
tion in the choice of his accompanist,
Rudolph Gruen, whose accompaniments
were all that the most fastidious could
ask, and whose solo work was, for one
so young, masterful to a degree. His
applause after this number amounted to
Amusing to one “on the inside” ,was
the reaction which came to Mr. Alt
house after Tie had sensed the “peculiar”
acoustic quality of our beloved old Vil
lard. We who knew, admired his good
sportsmanship and hoped again most
fervently for a real concert hall on the
campus where artistic singing would be
possible and any kind of music produc
tion a pleasure—not a fight.
Bureau Places 88 Per Cent of
All Who Would Teach.
Eighty-eight per cent of the students
who registered with the school of edu
cation appointment bureau during the
year 1919-20 were placed in teaching
positions according to Professor C. A.
Gregory of the education department,
who is director, of the bureau. Of the
remainder, five and a half per cent de
cided not to teach, after they had regis
tered, some went into graduate work in
other institutions, and a few took grad
uate work at the University.
The total number of positions listed by
the appointment bureau for the school
year 1919-20 was 420. The bureau was
able to recommend 277 applicants for
Seventy-nine earlier graduates of the
University were listed with the appoint
ment bureau last year, and a large per
centage of these were placed in positions,
Dr. Gregory said. A great many of the
offers of positions came from states
other than Oregon, and there were some
eight or ten offers of teaching positions
in colleges, normal schools, and univer
sities. In 143 cases the appointment
bureau had no suitable applicants.
Dr. Gregory urges that all students,
who wish to secure teaching positions
for next year register at once with the
apointment bureau. “Superintendents of
schools are already writing to us asking
us to recommend teachers” he said,
“and those who register early at the
bureau have a much better chance to get
the positions they want than those who
register late.” Unless the credentials
of the candidates are on file in the ap
pointment bureau it is impossible to give
recommendations for positions, Dg. Greg
ory said, and many good positions were
lost to University students last year be
cause they had failed to register in time.
I The fee for enrollment in the ap
pointment bureau is one dollar. Regis
tration blanks may be had at the ap
pointment bureau, on the ground floor
of the education building. Superintend
ents who are looking for teachers want
as much information about applicants for
positions as possible, and it is necessary
to fill our the blanks in full, Dr. Gregory

Miss Fenton Makes Survey of
Programs of Colleges.
! The homecoming program as staged by
the University of Oregon in the fall of
1920 embodies practically every good
feature that is being used by other col
leges of the .country in similar enter
prises. This fact is brought out iij the
homecoming program survey which Miss
Charlie Fenton, alumni secretary, is
In the survey, which was started sev
eral weeks ago, Miss Fenton has had
correspondence with 20 or more schools
and colleges in botlr the east and west,
including Harvard, Princeton, Cornell,
Michigan Agricultural College, Mis
souri, Wisconsin, Chicago, Ohio State,
Western Reserve and the University of
Miss Fenton reports that eastern
schools have a tendency to offer more
prizes than does Oregon, but that' their
results have not been any better than
those on the Oregon campus. She was
unable to find a school that had a bon
fire anything like the frosh pyre as a
part of its homecoming ceremonies.
Illinois and Wisconsin each have a
feature or two which have not been
tried here. A hobo parade is held and
prizes offered for the most clever take
off on some current event. A prize of
some value is ateo given to the football
player who makes the first touchdown
in the homecoming game.
In connection with the survey Hiss
Fenton has received letters from a num
ber of alumni secretaries, complimenting
her on the idea and asking that they be
allowed to share in the benefits.
As soon as the survey is completed
plans for the next homecoming on the
Oregon campus will be started and many
new ideas will probably be tried, ac
cording to Miss Fenton.
RELIEF MAP RECEIVED.
A copy of a large relief map of the
United States recently published by the
United States Geographical Survey has
been received at the president’s office
through the efforts of Congresional Rep
resentative Willis C. Hawley, of the
first district, who writes that only two
of the maps were at his disposal and
suggests that such a map would be of
great value to students in the school of

Churchill Approves Service.
A paragraph taken from the pamphlet
says: “In 1016 the Extension Division
started in a modest way this service
which has reached truth proportions that

260,000 Opeople, viewed upon the screen

sible to furnish.
J. A .Churchill, state superintendent
of public instruction, says that visual in
struction opens the way to a richer,
deeper and broader training without the
expenditure of any more time and ef
fort than before.
“This year marks the beginning of a
new era of service to the non-tlieatre ex
hibitors of Oregon,” says the pamphlet.
“The dramatizations of famous classics
listed under the heading, “A Special Of

future, to be able to offer in increasing
quantities. It was possible to secure
these dramas through co-operation with
other state universities, particularly the

TORCH AND SHIELD MAY
BE FORCED TO DISBAND
Student Advisory Committee Demands
Names of Members Who Put
Kick in Punch.
Unless the identity of certain mem
bers of Torch and Shield is disclosed to
the Student Advisory committee, so that
they can be held to answer for recent
alleged misdemeanors, that organization
will be forced to disband.
This was the action taken Thursday
afternoon by the committee in considera
tion of the charge that Torch and Shield,
a sophomore honor society on the cam
pus, improperly conducted a dance
about a month ago at the Country Club.
The express charge against the so
ciety is that intoxicating liquoV w’as
placed in the punch. Because it is be
lieved that not all of.-Ac members of
the society present were responsible for
the action alleged, the committee gave
ithe society a period of two weeks in
which to name those men who were re
• sponsible for tfie action charged, so that
any defense they may have can be made.
If the names of those connected with
the affair are not given at the,end of
the reqnired time. Torch and Shield,
organized on the campus April 14, 1912,
will be disbanded.

every way and Gamma Phi easily made
her score. Zeta Rho now ties with
Hendricks for second place. Zeta Rho

game. 17 to 9, has spored three victories
out of four games. The Thetas failed to
score a single point against Thacher
housed but held them to an 8 to 0 game.
The Gamma Phi team plays together
exceedingly well, Margaret Murphy and
Helen Nelson, forwards, rarely failing
to make a basket after getting their hands
on the ball. They are tall enough to
evade the guards, and are accurate bas
ket shooters. Wenona Dyer turned her
ankle in the game Thursday night and
still limps as a result.
A large crowd witnessed the games
Thursday afternoon. The Delta Delta
Delta-Zeta Rho Epsilon game wa» the

Remigio Ronqullle Speaks to Members
of Spanish Club.
Remigio Ronquille, a freshman from
the Philippine islands, spoke to the mem
bers of the Spanish Club in the Y. M. C.
A. hut Wednesday evening. In his
native tongue he related the history of
the islands, enumerated their industrial
resources, the part his people played in
the world war, sketched the life of the
natives, and mentioned the climatic con
ditions of the archipelago.
In a brief discussion of the educational
system in effect on the Islands, Ron
quillo said that there were over 400
schools, three good universities and 12
Hpanish songs were sung by members
of the club preceding a short business
session. Members were urged to attend
the meetings, and a committee was ap
