Oriental Effect Sought In
Light and Color
The spirit of old Japan will pervade
the mill-race on the evening of May 19,
when its picturesque waters will be the
scene of the annual canoe fete. The
fete this year will take on a decidedly
Oriental atmosphere, according to Wayne
Akers, chairman of the committee in
The banks of the stream will be lighted
bv Japanese lanterns containing electric
lights of various colors. The judges’
stand will be a’la Oriental and, in fact,
the surrounding landscape will he made
to resemble as tar as possible a Japanese
garden. Three powerful are lights will
light the waters of the race and the
spectators are assured of a good view at
practically no strain.
The seating committee, Vera Blue.
Kenneth Jones, Charles Lamb and Walter
Cofoid, have been hard at work and have
constructed bleachers with a seating ca
pacity of 400 on the south side of the
mill race near the Anchorage. The canoes
will be brought down the race in groups,
and during the time which will elapse
between the appearances of the various
groups, stunts will be pulled off.
One of tlie features of the fete will
be a large float, which is being construct
ed by the building committee. The float
will depict a floating forest and will
serve as a stage on which many stunts
will be performed. There will also be
a place on this float for the band. An
other feature will be a float which will
bear the Glee Club down the race and
from which vocal selections will be given.
According to Wayne Akers, prizes will
be awarded only for floats built upon
canoes. Any number of canoes may be
used, just as long as they are canoes.
All names of canoes and floats must be
turned in, according to the main commit
tee. no later than the first of next week
and it is desired that the names be as
far as possible of an Oriental nature.
The citizens of Eugene have contributed
freely toward the success of this event
by donations of money and by giving
free of charge electric power for light
ing purposes.
Professor Harl R. Douglass, of the1
school of education, has just received a
letter from G. Radcliffe Mclntire, prin
cipal of the Baker high school, saying
that he had read an article in the Emer
ald for April 20 in regard to the system
of socialized recitation used in the Uni
versity high school. Mr. Mclutire’s let
ter is dated April 22. He describes a
system somewhat resembling that used
in the Campus high school, which he has
worked out himself, and is now using
successfully in the Baker high school.
Bring a Jit and Get a Bit
Is Slogan for Doughnut Day
'Have your nickel ready,” is the slo
gan today. Everybody who has a nickel,
°r who can borrow one, will understand
"ben they see those big, hot, golden
hrown doughnuts all sprinkled with sugar
and ready to be eaten at one, two, or
more bites, as the owner pleases.
if after eating one of these dough
nuts you are not satisfied, the dealer will
gladly sell you another. “We strive to
please,” will be the motto of Theta Sig
ma Phi. women’s journalism fraternity.
"ho are putting on the sale to help es
tablish a national register for all women
in journalism.
Everyone with that “all gone” feeling
mside. which comes to professor and
freshman alike, will find the central dis
tributing station in front of the library,
doughnuts, hot from one of the Friendly
hall kitchens, will be found here from 9
until 12. Not only that, but girls with
baskets of these big, brown biscuits will
be stationed on the most frequented
1 walks, and will invade the office build
Your money’s worth is absolutely guar
anteed. You are charged for the dough
nut only, nothing at all is to be charged
for the smile you get when you buy one.
And if you buy two doughnuts the girls
! will be so tickled they will laugh oat
loud. There is no maximum to the num
ber you can buy. You are not only per
mitted, but urged, to take a dozen home
for future use.
‘‘Have your nickel ready.” for business
will be so rushing no change can be
made. Five cents for one doughnut.
Ten cents for two. Fifty cents a dozen.

Thirty Practice Three Times a Week,
Under “Shy"; Last Year’s
Frosh Numerous.
Gallons of rain and the mud flats ad
joining Hayward field have no terrors
for Shy Huntington and his 30 football
“students” who are turning out three
nights a week in preparation for the
season which does not open until next
Despite the adverse conditions, “Shy”
says his experiment of holding spring
practice is a success. Green men, who
have never before played the game, are
learning the rudiments and according to
indications many of them will he in line
for the regular squad next fall.
The biggest per cent of men turning
out are last year’s frosh who are very
eager to learn the game and are working
hard. A'number of track men are also
coming out, after working on the cinders.
Work thus far has been mostly elemen
tary and Coach Huntington has been
able to give considerable personal in
struction to the men. This has been
impossible heretofore, due to the fact
that teams had to be chosen quickly and
teamwork taught. This is one of the
biggest reasons for the spring workouts,
according to the coach.
Probably the most development shown
has been in punting and a number of
“darkliorse booters” have promise of giv
ing local football fans and opposing
teams some surprises when the season

23 Competitors Fail To Dent
Bede's Business, Students Are
Told; Rivals Given Welcome
Twenty-three isir't such an unlucky
number, thinks Elbert Bede, w. k. editor
of the Cottage Grove Sentinel, who spoke
to the classes in advanced news writing
and publishing yesterday morning. That
number of competing printers have come,
and gone away, sadder, and poorer but
probably wiser than when they entered
the town where Mr. Bede lias been edit
ing the Sentinel for some six years.
As Dean Eric W. Allen said, in intro
ducing the speaker, “Mr. Bede does not
want to be without competition. He
welcomes competitors. When a new
printer comes into town with a nice
shiny new press and a latest model lino
type machine and all the other appli
ances and sets up a shop, Mr. Bede does
not grieve and worry for fear that he
is going to lose a lot of business. He
calmly sits back and lets things take
their natural course, knowing full well
that in a year, or maybe two years, he
will walk down to the railroad station
With the new man, bid him a pleasant
farewell, and then go back up the street
to look over the machinery left behind
by his erstwhile competitor.”
This statement was at the very best
slightly exaggerated, said Mr. Bede to
the class ns soon ns he had time to ex
press himself. Even though it was true
that 23 rivals had passed through his
field, he denied that he was so exceed
ingly glad to see a competitor arrive. It
was his belief, he stated, that he could
put. out a better paper without compe
tition than he could if a competing paper
was in the field. “The better the paper,
the less the people will want n competing
paper,” said Mr. Bede, in explaining why
it was that lie could produce a better
paper when he was alone in the field.
“Contests are also good news produc
ers,” said the editor, in discussing sources
of live. news. "If someone brings a big
egg or an exceptionally lurgc potato or
the like into the office, put in a little
story about, it, saying that it sets a new
record. At once more large eggs and
potatoes begin to po«r into the office
and a whole series of stories will result.
We once collected enough potatoes in
one such contest to last us through the
Farmers are very good news sources,
although they often do not realize it
themselves, said Mr. Bede. As an exam
ple, he cited the case of a farmer who
dropped into his office to pay a subscrip
tion. They talked on general subjects
for a while and when the editor asked
his visitor if there was any nevvs out.
his way the man replied, “Well, there
haven’t been any marriages, births,
deaths, divorces or family quarrels out
my way for quite a while, so I guess
there isn’t anything I can tell you.” He
then started to leave, saying that he had
to hurry back with u load of lumber to
fix a bridge.
Editorial inquiry developed the fact
that on the way into town the farmer’s
wagon had broken through a bridge and
horses and all had landed in a stream

Club To Appear May 8th In
Heilig Theatre
The University of Oregon Girls’ Glee
club will appear in concert at the Heilig
theater in Portland on May 8. according
to Leland A. Coon, director. This is the
the first time in the history of the orga
nization that the girls have given a

“We are particularly anxious to have
this a success both financially and artis
tically,” Mr. Coon said Monday.

sistance in the ' matter of advertising
among friends and prospective students.
A particular appeal will be made to sen
iors in Portland high schools. No defi
nite plans have been given out as to
just the manner in which this appeal will
be made, but the club will follow the
general policy that they have used
throughout the year, which has proven so
successful in attracting students to the
Genevieve Clancy, president of the
club, is working very hard to assure the
success of the trip and has already re
ceived assurance of the valuable assist
ance from Portland friends. Sherman
Clay Company has promised to furnish
a Steinway Grand piano for the use of
the club at this concert.
The program to be given in Portland
will be practically the same as that given
at the Eugene concert, but a few new
and attractive numbers will be added.
Alberta Potter will go with the club and
give a violin number at the concert.
Marvel Skeels, who was out a great part
of last term because of illness, has re
sumed her work with the club and will
make the Portland trip. Vasliti Hos
kins did not return this term, but Madge
Calkins has been added to the club.
Miss Stella Jordan Talks With Girls On
Social Service Opportunity.
-Miss Stella Jordan, of Boston, relig
ious educational secretary for the Congre
gational Board, arrived in tlugene Sunday
evening from Corvallis to meet the girls
of the Congregational church who are
on the campus. ,
The girls had tea around the fireplactf
in the Y .W. C. A. bungalow and Miss
Jordan told them about the opportunity
for social service work. The church has
different schools in the United States
where training for this kind of work can
be obtained. After the girls have com
pleted their course they are sent to some
foreign country or given a position here.
