Thorp nro many windows in the new
one-story brick building into which the
school of education moved last Satur
day. so that good lighting and ventilation
is insured. ,
The largest classroom, which will seat
over a hundred if necessary, is a high,
light room, with one side mostly win
dows. It is finished in white plaster,
with light-colored woodwork, and has
several blackboards. The floor slopes
so that persons in the back of the room
eau readily see the board. This room
has the equipment for showing moving
pictures, but the auditorium of the new
high school building will be more conven
ient for this purpose as a rule, says
Dean H. I). Sheldon.
The second largest of the three class
rooms has blackboards on three sides,
and high banked windows on the other.
All three classrooms could seat many
more students than it is at present neces
sary for them to do.
There is a spacious and well-lighted
office for each member of the faculty
of the school. All of the offices and
classrooms are lighted from the hall
through ground-glass windows, as well
as from the big outer windows.
A seminary room, which is to be fur

shelves and blackboards, affords a place
for the students to work between class

The corridors of the building are high

CIRCUS OWNER GIVEN

Wonders of Jungle and Desert Brought
By Cireut to Children.
Some day,” declared the old school

Al t,. Barnes will be recognized and given

pr of the three important "R’s ” lia

W ho has not only taught us practical
Jy all we know about the fauna of ou

Who has brought to our own doors, in
our very front yards, as it were these
wonderful wild beasts that range the out
of the way places of the world until
even when we see them, we insist like
the old farmer, -there ain’t any such
animal’? Again the circus man.
"Who has inculcated a wonderful ob
ject lesson of supremacy in the minds of
the growing and budding youth of the
country? Once more—the circus man.
Isnt each kid trying to outdo the kid
next door and the one down the block
m doing ‘stunts’? Where did he get the
idea? From the circus.
"hrom whence came the now present
and rapidly growing idea of being kind
to animals? I’m afraid we’ll have to
fall back again on the same answer_the
circus, and especially such wonderful cir
cuses as the A1 0. Barnes Big 4-Bing
Wild Animal Circus, as the billboards
caption it. For there it is that we are
shown what kindness and patience can do
with the ferocious animals of the hid
den forests. The receptive mind of the
boy and girl realizes that if kindness can
achieve the wonders they have seen in
the Barnes show, especially among the
wildest and most untamable of beasts,
what can they accomplish with ‘Old Tige
the dog. ‘Prince’ the pony, and even
Potentate’ the cat? And whom have we
to thank? The circus man.
And finally,” concluded the pedagogue,
as he started to ring the recess bell
calling the kiddies back to their book,
“being a schol master, I must prove my
problem. How ? Let us suppose the
circus had never come to town. What
would we know? How many millions of
country boys and girls, and even grown
ups are there among us who never have
had opportunity to visit one of the great
zoological gardens of the great cities?
And, if the wondering circus owner had
never come among us and spread his
tents, what would we have missed? Think
it over,” when the Al. G. Barnes circus
come sto Eugene Friday, May 6.
LADIES: SAY “HELLO!”
To the Editor: Once before I called
your attention to the fact that the “hello”
system of the University of Oregon was
almost on the rocks, and now I contend
that it is.
As for myself, I may be a peculiar
looking specimen of humanity who doesn’t
deserve the glances, nods, and greetings
of the fair damsels who flock on our
campus, but I’l be eternally flabber
gasted if I can sit quiet and not holler
when a girl who knows me, my history,
my family and my future, passes me up
after a look-through and a blink.
The other day I wandered down to a
sorority house after a girl, with the kind
intentions of taking her to a glee club
concert. At the door I was met by a
sweet young thing who smiled, greeted,
and talked. She talked as if she were
glad to see me. I left with my original
intended feeling happy, contented and all
that. In spite of the glee club con
cert, I spent an enjoyable evening.
The point to this fable is this: This
afternoon I again met the fair young
thing who gave me such a glad-handed
and enthusiastic greeting at the sorority
door, and she did that which caused this
letter. She looked at me. through me,
and past me. I made the customary
bended elbow movement in the jjgneral
direction of my derby, said a genial hello
with my customary grin, and then blushed
after the look had passed me by without
even a nod.
Of course, I wore a flannel shirt to
day as against a late Arrow importation
the other night. Perhaps other articles
of wearing apparel may have been
changed, but I am sure that' oue glance

“Besides its name,” said Miss Mork,
“each stunt has a two-line jingle which
will appear on the program. Some of
the lines,” she laughed, “are very choice.”
A cup is awarded the organization

was won by the Delta Gammas last
year, and is now in their possession.

PERSONALITY IS HELD
BIG FACTOR IN ACTING
Actress Gives Opinions On Essential
Qualities Needed In Pro
Row much of noting is just that in -
definable. elusive thing called personali

performance in ('banning Pollock’s stir

which conies to the Eugene Theatre this
evening at 8:o0 o’clock.
"Of all the arts,” says Miss Ilamheau.
"acting is the only one that does not
present a tangible, definite, objective re
sult. The artist and his work are one.
The actor gives not only his talent, his
thought and his emotion, hut himself
body and mind and soul. He does not
express himself in terms of an outside
medium—not in stone, in wood, in color,
in words, in music, but in himseif. His
medium is himself—his personality. And
that is the one medium that is not plas
tic that he cannot mould to his own use
or his purposes. He must use it as it
"Therefore, in acting it may he said
that the medium becomes in itself moye
important and effective than the work
brought in it. In other words, all the
skill of the actor, all his experience, all
his conception, all his feeling, is of no
avail if the public does not respond to
him or her personally as a man' or a
woman. If the magnetism is there it
will draw in spite of uuskillfulness. In
fact, there are many great names in the
history of acting where fame depends on
personal magnetism rather than on act
ing. The popular actor is never so com
pletely lost in his art but that his public
may discern him and be attracted to him
apart from his role.”
That Miss Rambeau has this magnetic
personality is abundantly proved by her
extraordinary career. She is probably
the only actress in America who has
spent six consecutive years before the
