Club Gets Biggest Ovation of
Its Whole Year.
ALL ENCORES ARE USED
Musical Critics Reported As
The first appearance of a Girls’ Glee
Clnh in Portland, which was in the nature
of an experiment, was a complete success
in every way, according to Professor
Poland A. Coon, director of the dull. The
concert was given at the Heilig theatre
last Wednesday evening and the first
number brought an ovation from an audi
ence which represented the best people
of Portland. At no previous appearance
during the year has such enthusiasm
been shown, said Professor Coon.
The members of the club presented a
pleasing appearance in their evening
dresses, and the attractive stage settings
with the lighting effects which were well
worked out, added to the effectiveness
of the whole. The audience was so in
sistent in its appreciation that all of
the encore numbers were used. The new’
song, “Chanson Provencale,” by Dell
'Acqua-Shelley, which w'as used by the
chili for the first time this year, was one
of the most effective numbers on the
program. The stunt also brought the

The solo numbers were all well pre
sented and received and the soloists were
the recipients of many beautiful flow’ers.
flaskets and bouquets of the beautiful
roses for which the Rose City is famed
were received. Vincent Engeldinger,
pianist with the club, is declared to have
a peculiar preference for red carnations
rather than the more expensive roses.
The soloists with the glee club wejc
Genevieve Clancy, soprano; Laura Rand,
contralto; Alberta Potter, violinist, and
Vincent Engeldinger, pianist.
The fact that the glee club concert
was so well advertised played an import
ant part in the success of the undertak
ing, according to Professor Coon. One
thousand letters were sent to Portland
alumni. The girls sent personal letters
to their friends in Portland, one girl
sending 35. The concert was advertised
in the big business houses, on street
cars and in the daily papers.
VIMI/OI3 tt 111 r raise.
A great deal of the success of the ad
vertising campaign was due to the efforts
of the president of the glee club, Gene
vieve Clancy, and Jack Dundore, busi
ness manager, for the trip. The club is
indebted to the Sherman-Clay Music com
pany, which extended every possible fa
vor. They furnished the Steinway Con
cert Grand piano for the occasion and as
sisted in the publication of the programs.
Several of the girls went to Portland
in advance of the club and sang at the
various high schools. They also gave
talks telling of the University, the Jun
ior Week-end, and the glee club concert.
The high school youngsters were evident
ly pleased for they insisted as many
numbers as they could get. The girls
were entertained at various homes and
returned to the campus on Thursday in
time to represent their organizations in
the canoe fetfe in the evening.
Director Well Pleased.
“A number of music critics were pres
ent, said Ptofessor Coon, “and they wer^
favorably impressed with the work of the
glee club. They will probably write
up the concert for the musical journals.
1 am well pleased with the results of this
first concert in every way. It was our
first appearance in Portland but not the
last. I am sure. A very good impression
was created on this trip and other con
certs will be made easier.” Professor
Coon stated that this would be the last
formal concert of the year.

f'f course, he continued, England can
be- criticized for her salt tax on the naj
f''"es, and for other and similar things.
Put when one thinks of the fact that one
fifth of all the human race, embracing
perhaps the most superstitious fifth, has
been placed under the guardianship of
England, and has been brought out of
a carnival of blood and cruelty, the crit
icisms seem petty.
Criticism Easier Than Doing.
“It is easy to criticize,” snapped out
the speaker in a jovial sarcasm. "It’s
the easiest thing I know of. It doesn’t
fake much brain to criticize—I can criti
cize a cake and I couldn’t make one; I
could criticize a professor, and I couldn’t
teach his classes. If you want to set up
in a business with little capital, set up
in criticism; but if you want a man-sized
job, take the job you criticize and do
it- ’ he finished with emphasis on the
England has established five universi
ties in India, that carry on a bewildering:
sjwtem of education, said the
bishop, who spent seven years as exam
iner in them. “Britain didn’t have to do
that, he declared in his forceful way:
s >e did it because she wanted to lift
up the natives.” England lias built 100,
000 ,m,es of railroad in India, besides
many other improvements, according to
“Eddy Minds” Excited.
Those who criticize England for her
contro! of India, he went on. only show
the unfurnished condition of their men
tal rooms.” In nearly everv ease he
said, criticism comes from what lie calls
eddy minds. Some minds, he said arc
ike the current of a great river, they
low right along with purpose; others are
like the little eddies that occur beside the
current. “The eddies.” he said, “never
get anywhere, but only go round and
round; but there are a lot of them in the
world, and ” he added with his ever ready
wit, “when one of them gets to bo an
edi-tor, it is awful.”
In regard to England’s being driven
out of India, the speaker was positive
that such a thing can not be done. The
natives, he said, have been entirely dis
armed for the last six years, they haven’t
a rifle, a pistol, or a gun of any kind.
"If I know anything about it.” said the
bishop, “it is a part of the divine plan
that England shall hold India, until India
becomes seasoned to the new order of
Christianity Winning India.
There is now in India,” he continued,
“the greatest single movement toward!
/the Christian faith that has over been
known since Christ died for the sins of
man.” One hundred million of the three
million people in India are coming, from
all ranks, to the Christian faith. To
show that the Indians have ability, he
(cited the case of one educated native
(whom he declares far surpasses Rabind
ranath Tagore in the beauty and imagery
pf his expressed thought. This man, said
the bishop, holds spellbound audiences of
10,000 or 15,000 persons who come to
bear him tell of the Christian religion.
Bishop Stuntz closed his talk with a
plea to the college students that they
hail the opportunity of going to India, to
stand by the side of his son, who is a
Christian educator there. The bishop
drew many laughs from his audience by
his forceful, original and sometimes caus
tic comments on present practices in j
American politics, as a sidelight on his
remarks concerning England’s control of

WHOLE COLLEGE STUDENT
BODY IN HAWLEY FILM
Making a whole college work in the
pictures—that’s what happened last fall
in Los Angeles. It all came about dur
ing the making of “The Snob,” a college
comedy-drama filmed by Rcalart as a
'H onda Hawley starring vehicle. Campus
scenes were needed—and a Southern
California university nicked as the locale
But when the company arrived diffi
culties cropped up. All the collegians
insisted on taking snapshots of Miss
Hawley. William E. Lawrence, Walter
Hiers, Sylvia Ashton and other prom
inent players in the production. It
seemed almost impossible to clear a space
for the motion picture scenes.
Finally Director Sam Wood called out
“If you people will all get in the scenes
we’ll give you fifteen minutes to snap
all the pictures you want!”
And so it is that the campus scenes
look “real”—with actual collegians giv
ing true and accurate atmosphere.
“I felt right at home,” said Miss
Hawley, “It seemed only a few days
