A. cabinet from O. A. C. and Oregon have decided to hold their an nual meeting at the Blue River hotel, lo cated about 45 miles up the McKenzie river.

A. 1 and Miss Dinsdale, secretary from Oregon will have charge of the coun cil- Miss Taylor-is ifoing to speak on the industrial program as planned by tbe Y. W. C. A. PRAISE GIVEN POTTER SISTERS FOR RECITAL Music Said To Be Splendid Exhibition of Talent and Well Trained Technique. The joint recital, given by Aurora and Alberta Potter at the Methodist church was a splendid exhibition of talent com l bined with well trained technique, judg ing from the enthusiasm expressed by authorities in the school of music. 'I he first number, a strictly classical sonata by Handel for violin and piano formed a solid opening for the some what modern and ultra modern selec tions which followed. Big tone, ex quisitely rendered and sympathetic in terpretation formed the main character istics of the opening number. Debussy, Prokofieff and Saint-Saens were the composers represented in the second group, which included four piano solos. This group was particu larly adapted to Miss Aurora Potter’s talent, and were accordingly received with great pleasure by the audience. The curious “Prelude” by Debussy, with the mass of harmonies and runs, ending in r final trickle of music, and one single note was possibly the best received, al though Saint-Saens “Mandolinata” wTas the only encore to which she responded A unique example of the ultra modern Russian school was the “Marche” of Prokofieff, holding a bewildering shift ing of keys, and wmird harmonies. The “Ballade and Polonaise” by Vie ustemps made a brilliant and pleasing study for the violin. The first part justified the name of Ballad fully with its melody and music. The drift from ballad to old Polish march'in the con ventional two-four time marked a skill ful change in interpretation and caused the end to be the full, stirring “Polon aise” that it wms named. The fourth number, MaeDowell’s Con certo in A minor, rounded out the pro gram. Mrs. Timelier at the second piano gave an added effect to the haunt ing MacDowell music. A well filled auditorium responded with the enthusiasm and sympathy to every number and proved the effort to be worth while. COMMERCE SCHOOL BETS HEW PROFESSOR Frank R. Rutter to Come to L University Next Fall. i _ Frank R. Rutter, formerly statistical adviser of the U. S. department, of com | meree and now professor of commerce at Georgetown University has been elected to the University of Oregon as professor of foreign trade. Mr. Rutter will begin his professional work next fall. He is a graduate of John Hopkins University with a Pli. D. degree. For eleven years he was con nected with the United States depart ment of agriculture, where he studied exclusively foreign questions, especially sugar, because of its importance from a protectionist point of view. For two years he was a resident of London as a special European agent of the depart ment of agriculture, and visited the continent, studying farming conditions in Roumania and the Balkan states. Tn 1010 Mr. Rutter was transferred to the department of commerce as tariff expert, in which capacity he visited the South American countries studying the actual administration of tariffs. The position of assistant chief of the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce was held by Mr. Rutter for several years, at the end of which time he resigned to become commercial attache at Tokio.

MULTNOMAH IS NEXT IN COMBINED RATING Report Based On Statistics Gathered Over Period of Six Years. Sherman and Multnomah counties ranked highest in educational efficiency in the state of Oregon, in a survey made by Professor Fred L. Stetson, of the school of education at the University and John C. Ahnack of the extension di vision. This report covers a period of six years, from 1914 to 1921, and was compiled at the request of the state su perintendent of schools, J. A. Church hill. The ten points of grading which were practically the same as that used by the Russell Sage Foundation in ranking the 48 states in educational efficiency, and are considered the most, important fac tors by educational experts all over the country. Points Are Given. The first ten of the points to be used include: (1) per cent of school popula tion that attended school, daily; (2) average days attended by each child of school age; (3) average number of days school are kept open; (4) per cent that high school attendance has of total at tendance; (5) per cent of boys os com^ pared to girls in the high school; (6) average annual expenditures per child attending; (7) average expenditure per child of school age; (8) average annual expenditure per teacher employed; (9) expenditure per pupil for other pur poses than teachers salaries; (10) and expenditure per teacher for‘salary. The first five points take up the educational Phases and the latter five the financial points. Western Counties Lead. In the final ranking of counties pro fesor Stetson and Mr. Almaek fouud that Morrow county came first in item 1; Multnomah in items 2, 8, 10; Clat sop in item 3; Benton in 4; Malheur ir 5; aud Sherman in 0, 7, 8 and 9. This gives the western counties of the state preference to some extent over the east ern Oregon counties. From this chart the five counties that lead in the educa tional factors are: Yamhill, Multnomah Hood River, Malheur and Union, while the five leading counties in the financial elements are: Sherman, Multnomah Clatsop, Deschutes aud Morrow. A combined rating for the counties during the six year period assigns the counties the following ranks: Sherman Multnomah, Morrow, Clatsop, Hood River, Deschutes, Umatilla, Wasco Jackson, Lake, Columbia, Tillamook Baker, Benton, Harney, Union, Crook. Wallowa, Malheur, Coos, Marion, Clack amas, Klamath, Jefferson, Lane, Doug las, Josephine, Fork, Gilliam, Grant Lincoln, Washington, Wheeler and Curry. Trend Has Been Upward. An examination of the statistics for the six year period said Professor Stet son, indicates that the whole trend of education has been upward. During the war, in a few elements, there was actual regression. This was particularly true in regard to the educational items. On the other hand the financial items show' an abjupt upward trend, begin ning in 1917. The year 1919 marks the lowest point in the educational com ponents, due to the effects of the war which were carried over. The authors, wished in conclusion, tc indicate first of all the limitations of such an investigation, in as much as ! only ten points out of a considerable number that might have been made, have j been chosen. Could all of these have been taken into consideration, th< J rankings of the counties might have been ; different. These ten points, however jure believed to be among the most im ; portunt, and to have a close relation ! ship to general efficiency in sehoo' ! work. No attempt has been made by I’rofes sor Stetson and Mr. Almaek to award I merit, or to place blame, according t< the report. Accomplishment and not ef fort, has been considered the chief value of the study. “The final indexes may I be analyzed and superiority or insuper iority traced to each educational or financial factor. These may be further followed until the special elements of strength or weakness in the school sys te mis known,” declared the authors. Electron Theory and Math Have No Terrors for Arthur; Bats 21 Hours Straight “1” Any modern Diogenes looking for a real student on the Oregon,campus can put out his lantern and rest in peace. Behold the man! He is Arthur Brain ley—junior—major in physics—and his record is a grade of “1” in 21 hours of the heaviest courses offered by the Uni versity during the winter term! This record, rated as the greatest scholastic feat ever performed, was an nounced yesterday by Colin V. Dyment, dean of the college of literature, science and arts. Bramley, who was formerly a student at the University of British Columbia, entered from that institution at the beginning of the last fall term. He had completed his sophomore year and petitioned for advanced standing. Although Bramley holds but junior standing he carried a number of advanced and post graduate courses, totaling seven of the most difficult and technical offered by the University. This num ber of course alone is an unusually large number for one student to take. He received a “1” grade in the fol lowing subjects: differential equations; analytical mechanics; organic chemistry; applied mathematics; electron theory; electrical measurement; mathematical theory of electricity. This record is considered phenomena] by Dean Dyment, especially since the University has raised its scholastic re quirements. “Not since the University was founded has a student made such an unusual record,” said the deau. According to the grade sheet, Brain ley is credited with but eighteen hours. Due to University regulations, no credit is allowed for more than this amount of scholastic work. Bramley, however varied au additional three hours course the mathematical theory of electricity which comes under the head of post graduate work. Receiving a “1” grade in this course, raised his total above the amount of credit allowed, although the work required in carrying twenty-one hours is not lessened by the fact that credit, is only allowed for eighteen. University Warblers to Show Ability in Annual Event. Since the appearance of the Men’s Glee club in Portland last January, no less than five hours a week have been devoted to practice perfecting the same concert. At the time of that concert the Municipal Auditorium where it was held was filled with a crowd of over twenty-five hundred. It was arranged by the Ellison-White management, who told Joe Ingram, Glee Club manager that it was the most successful attrac tion they had booked for several years. Further praise was given by J. Erwin Mutsch, acknowledged authority and vocal critic, and baritone in connection with the Ellison-White conservatory of music. Mr. Mutsch was quoted as say ing the University of Oregon Men’® Glee club was the finest he had ever heard. Such praise, combined with the com ments of John Stark Evans, director leave no doubt that the annual home concart, to be given Saturday, April 23 will be one of the best ever given in Eu gene, or on the coast for that matter. Oregon is extremely fortunate to have the privilege of hearing the concert last as all the extra pratcice will make the program so well received in the larger city, unrivalled in finish, says Mr. Evans Information regarding the seat sale and program will probably be announced early next week. All Houses But Four to Enter; < Teams Not Picked Yet. April 26 and 28 are the dates that have been set for the first debates ii the inter-sorority contests. At this time all of the competing organizations will debate and after this the half that receives the lowest number of point! will be dropped out of the contest. Tin dates for the finals have not yet beer arranged, Gut it is though that they wil’ follow soon after the other debate! are over. The question of the debate is: “Resolved, That the exemption of the Panama Canal tolls originally ex tended to American coastwise vessel! should be repealed.” Some reserve de bate material has disappeared from th* library and no trace of it has been found At a meeting of the inter-sorority debat* council held Tuesday evening it was de cided that any organization found with the material would be denied the right to debate and in case that they had wor any decisions the decisions would be taken away from them. Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Delta Delta and Kappa Alpha Theta will not enter a team in this debate, but practic ally every other house on the eampui will have a team out, according to Jes sie Todd, chairman of the inter-sorority debate council. Susan Campbell hall will not enter a debate this year as they have not had sufficient time to make preparations. IBSEN PU» REDDY FOR PRESENTATION Harold Brown, Reuel Moore Take Comedy Parts. Final touches were given to the prep aration of Ibsen’s “Lady from the Sea” last night when the dress rehearsal was staged in Guild theatre. This play is something entirely different from any thing yet attempted by the Company, and Professor Iteddie expects Kirffr' thusiastie receptiou when the Norwegian drama opens tonight. In the play the comedy parts of Lyngstrnnd and Ballested come in as t fitting contrast to the heavier leads. Lyngstrand is a would-be sculptor with' “a slight short-windedness in the chest” who coughs his way through the present and paints his future in glowing terms for the approval of the wtmien. Lyug strand is played by Harold Brown. Every one likes him, though none hold the faith in his future that he does, en couraged by the admiration that they ex press for him. Ballested, played by Reuel Moore, Is a scene-painter, dancing-master, presi-j dent of the musical society, hair cutter and frisseur, guide and all, who has “ae nclim-atized himself to various profes sions” as he deems necessary for a res ident of such a small place to do. He finds a chance for a little bit of rare philosophy between dobs of paint. Tickets for both Thursday and Friday will be on sale at the box office in the Administration building today and to morrow.

The suggestions which have been made in regard to the memorial by alumni, students and faculty will all be consid ered. and some definite plan of action decided upon. This meeting will prob ably be followed by a mass meeting of ♦ lie alumni in Portland, according to Mr. Spencer, and the decision of the joint committee in regard to the kind of me morial can at that time be referred to the alumni for ratification. FRED BUCK TO LEAVE. Fred Buck, a freshman in the Univer sity from Eugene, will leave Monday to fulfill an engagement with the Maey Baird comedians, well known tent theatre operators on the coast, nc will go first to Albany to play traps with the or chestra at that place. RISE OF HEIR EIST IS COMMERCE ROUTE IS ISSEMBLT TOPIC Dr. H. B. Packard To Tell of Economic Importance of the Levant. GEOGRAPHIC POSITION WILL BE EMPHASIZED Link Connecting Europe and Asia Contested From An Early Date. The economic importance of the Neai East, its bearing on the future trade o the world, and its long and complicated history as a commercial route between East and West, will be discussed by Dr II. B. Packurd this morning speaking before the student body assembly on the topic “Re-opening of Old Caravar Routes.” The spenker was formerly a member of the American committee foi Armenian and Syrian relief. Dr. Packard, who has spent a score of years in the Near East as the med ical head of the largest hospital in thr Levant and took an active part in the work of relief of the Armenian refugees during the European war, had ample op portunity to study the economic volur and importance of lands that have played a large part in the early economic his tory of the world. Strategically placed between great seas, and a connecting point between Europe, Asia and Africa the Near East early assumed vast com mercial importance as the great trade route of the world. The present conflict between Oreecr and Turkey and the possibility of other nations becoming involved in tlli«f prase of the century-long strife for control of the Near East trade routes will be touch «ri -trptnr by Dr. Packard In his address to the student body. HOME BREW THREATENS l RUIN, SAYS ASHCRAFT Sigma Upsilon Orator Bares Secret Menace to University; Strange Caso Cited As Proof. “The great menace which threatens to tear clown the University is not the . cemetery, not the Bell theatre in Spring field, nor the Saturday night formals at the Armory,” declared LeRoy Ashcraft declaiming for the pleasure of the mem bers of Ye Tabard Inn of Sigma Upsilon yesterday morning. “The thing which threatens to dis mpt and demolish our institution is far worse than any of these,” he continued “It is,—but let me cite you an instance. The other morning at three o’clock ai I was hurrying down Eleventh street tc meet a train I saw a man seated at the ' foot of a tree. lie was staring into the branches with a fixed and stony stare. “I tapped him on the shoulder (loud splashes of water) and said to him ‘Brother, what are you doing here?’ H> pointed mutely into the branches and 1 saw there nn owl, which was steadih hooting. ‘What of that?’ I asked him. ‘Whash you thinks!),’ he said unsteadily ‘Ish been sittin’ here two hoursh lookin’ at thash cuckoosh but I’m darnedsh if T cansh see anysh clocksh.’ There is the ‘ answer my friends. The menace to our be loved University is Home Br-r-r-e-w!” BULLETIN OUT HOURLY Commerce Students Issue Mimeograph Paper Hourly at Show. The mimeograph bulletin issued hour ly at the Home Products exhibit through the efforts of a group of commerce stu dents is proving to be one of the moat popular features of the event. The is sue combines as its features news of the various activities being carried or in the building continuously, and also some specific advertising feature for the University.
