Attractive Offers Received
From Other Schools.
The Y. M. C. A. at Oregon may be left
without the leadership of Ilal Donnelly,
who has been the secretary here for the
past year, unless something is done to
make it possible for him to stay.
Donnelly graduated from Wooster col
lege in Ohio and took two graduate de
grees at Princeton. Since leav.ng college
lie has been engaged in Y. M. C. A work
and was secured as the local secretary
for this year on a one-year contract. He
has proved a strong leader and has made
many friends here, but lie seems to have
the ability to do this elsewhere, and as
a consequence has had many offers.
“It is true that I am seriously con
sidering leaving Oregon,” Donnelly said
yesterday. “I feel thaf Oregon is really
m.v home and I am sure that I have ab
sorbed the famous ‘Oregon Spirit’ right
to the bone but there arc of necessity
other things that I must consider.”
The council of Christian workers, com
posed of students and faculty men, has
been working on the problem for some
time and are making every effort to per
suade Hal to stay. “The committee
terms to have about, exhausted its re
sources toward keeping Hal Donnelly on
the campus and we feel that any real
effort toward making Hal stay must come
fr(om the students as a whole,” >T. H.
Douglass, chairman of this council said.
“Everyone who is acquainted with Hal
cannot help but realize wbat a loss bis
leaving would be, but the committee is
1 ractically powerless and unless the men
on the campus respond tc our call for
aid ho will undoubtedly decide to go.” He
leaves today to deliver the commence
ment address at the high school at Elk
ton. Oregon.
Deutzia, Azalea, Myrica, Not
Co-Eds, But Campus Plants
(Editor’s Note—This is the last of
three articles on things about the campus
that we see daily and do not recognize.)
Among the flowering shrubs on the
campus are found several varieties of the
lilac, which is so common in Oregon that
everyone knows it. The’dark purple one
in the clump along "Hello Lane is a
Japanese variety, and has double flowers.
The wliite and lavender lilacs are the
ordinary nursey variety seen everywhere.
It is not jjecessary to point out to
Oregon students the Oregon grape, which
is represented on the campus by several
very beautiful bushes. Holly, also, is so
"'ell known that it needs no introduction.
The rhododendron, which is just now
coming into blossom, is almost as well
known, though it is not as plentiful in
the woods east of the coast range as is
the Oregon grape. The most noticeable
clump of rhododendron on the grounds is
that directly in front of Friendly hall,
across the driveway. The color is always
lighter on this side of the mountains man
on the coast side. The rhododendron
seems to be a lover of the sea air. anil
requires it to give the br ihant hue to its
In the clump of shrubs on “Hollo
Lane” are a number of spreading bushes
covered with white blossoms. Those are
deutzia. Bushes of deutzia will also be
found in the clump at the end of the Y.
M. hut. There are several bushes of
mock orange both in the Y. M. clump,
and in the “Hello Lane” clump. This
shrub resembles the deutzia bush itself,
although the blossom is quite different.
Xearly everyone knows the fragrant,
waxy white blooms of the moth orange,
which produces long stiff panicles of
flowers resembling orange blossoms. The
bushes are stiffer than the deutzia.
The beautiful yellow flowers which
grew on the bushes without leaves and
have just faded, in the clumps on “Hello
Lane” were azalea. The azalea belongs
to the rhododendron family, and its flow
ers are similar to the rhododendron
flower, though the bush is quite differ
ent. Another shrub which produces its
flowers before its leaves is the Japanese
quince, or japonica. A bush of japonica

Tomorrow Is Annual Occasion
Given Over to Athletics
For Women.
Women’s Athletic Association
to Present Trophies and ;
Letters to Winners.
Tomorrow morning, tho women nth
lotos of the University have their in
nings. Tlio entire morning will bo given
over to athletic events. The occasion is
the annual Field Day. managed every
year by the Women’% Athletic associa
tion. and practically completes the work
of the association under the present of
ficers. Letters, trophies and other awards
are given to the winners in the various
events, which this year includes base
ball, tennis and canoeing. Dut to the
wet weather this spring, archery will not
be on the program tomorrow.
The biggest feature of the day will be
the finals of the interclass baseball ser
ies. The preliminary games will be
played this afternoon. At 4 o’clock Ollie
Stoltenberg and Alice Evans, senior and
junior baseball captains, will marshall
their forces against each other. The
sophomore and freshman teams, led by
Pearl Lewis and Betty Pride, will play
at 5 o’clock. The winners in the two
games will play for the Hayward cup at
0 o’clock Saturday morning.
Tennis Matches Scheduled.
At 10 o’clock, the finals in the tennis
tournaments will be played. Tennis has
been one sport, that has suffered more
than any other this spring. The weather
has not been exactly favorable to tennis
and. with only three courts to accom
modate all the University enthusiasts,
the girls have had considerable difficulty
in arranging hours to play off the pre
liminary rounds.
The canoeing races were scheduled for
this morning, but have been postponed
until some time next week, probably
Wednesday afternoon. Gladys Johnson
and Natrude Larson, the sophomore team
will compete with Carolyn Cannon and
Emma Jane Oarbade for the paddles
given to the winners by the association.
Awards to Be Given Later.
The awards will not be presented to
morrow. as was previously announced. A
special meeting will be held later, at
which the officers for the coming year
will be installed and letters for the mem
bers of the varsity baseball team will
also be given.

Stoltenberg. president of W. A. A.. Alice
Evans. Marianne Dunham and Phoebe
Gage, heads of baseball, tennis and ca
noeing. assisted by t]ie members of W. A.
A. executive council.

Bargain Counter Bust to be
Staged for All Students at
Gym Tonight by Journalists
‘•For sale, rout or long time lease,
at a sacrifice, one dance, absolutely
new, last of the season; formerly 85
cents, priced specially for tonight at
70 cents per two; call at men’s gym
between 8:15 and 11:30 tonight and
be convinced. Sigma Delta Chi and
Theta Sigma Phi, owners.”
This tells the story in concrete classi
fied ad style ns well as the most skilled
pens in the whole journalistic combine
that, is promoting the dance could por
tray the coming event. For the main
facts of the story are that there is going
to be a dance in the men's gym tonight;
it is a student body dance under the aus
pices of the men’s and women’s journal
istic fraternities, the admission price is
to be 70 cents, (it. being a bargain af
fair), and Harry Mayer will start tuning
up his famous orchestra about 8:15.
For a long time the members of Sigma
Delta €hi and Theta Sigma Phi have
been planning to give a regular “bust”
for everyone, that would rival anything
that has ever been staged on the campus
to date. So when the members discov
ered that there was an open date for a
student body dance they decided to take
over the affair and stage the bust.
Of course the dignified seniors are to
sojourn at the Sigma Nil house, but jour
nalists arc congratulating themselves on
being able to jazz things up without their
weighty presence. Everyone else will be
there, of course, with the absent 21ers
assuring plenty of room.
' Wear anything possible, suggest those
in charge to those students who are nl
wnys stumped when the clothes question
crops up. The dance is informal—used
advisedly—and will remain informal to
the final toot of the sax in the orchestra.
Old Sol indicate^, that it will be a nice
cool evening, very spiffy and correct for
the bargain sale hop. The moon will rise
on schedule, the windows will be open,
and everything else points to comfort as
well as pleasure.
Carefully selected chaperons will see to
it. that everything flint isn’t barred will
be permitted. Journalists will of course
be there on masse, because journalists
dance too. Hut the big bargain—only
70 cents—is being offered to every stu
dent. If the line isn’t busy all day. Sig

gest that men students see to it that wo
men students enjoy the dance. Women
are supposed to be great bargain hunters.
Marie Loughney to Be Instruc
tor In School of Music.
Marie Loughney, a mezzo-soprano,
well known in the east, has been en
gaged as guest artist instructor for the
summer session of the University school
of music, according to Rex Underwood,
who will direct the session. Mrs. Jane
Thacher, Rex Underwood, Anna Lands
bury Beck and Aurora Potter will also
have a part in the instruction.
Miss Loughney was recently selected to
create the mezzo-soprano role in the
composition, “The Apocalypse,” which
won the $5000 prize offered by the Fed
eration of Music Clubs of America for
the best composition of that name. “It
was with difficulty,” said Mr. Under
wood, “that she was induced to cancel
that engagement which would have pre
vented her from being present at the
summer school.” Immediately after the
close of the session, Miss Loughney will
be relieved so that she may resume her
work in New York as the assistant of
Oscar Seagle who is one of the world’s
greatest voice teachers. It is said, M'r.
Underwood continued, that Mr. Seagle
considers her his best woman singer and
exponent of his art.
Tress notices from all over the eastern
part, of the country speak very highly of
Miss Loughney’s voice and training.
'Mrs. Thacher will remain in the school
as head of the pinno department. One
of the main features of her work, aside
from the regular piano instruction, will
be courses enabling teachers to brush up
on their repertoire and teaching methods.
It is expected that a number of teachers
will avail themselves of the opportunity
offered by these courses, said Mr. Un
Aurora Potter, at. present assistant in
structor of piano in the school, will as

Public school methods, musical science,
and musical history will be under the di
rection of Anna Landsbury Beck, the
present head of the public school music
department. In this department, also,
courses are arranged so as to be bene
ficial to teachers who wish to take ad
vantage of the summer session.
Mr. Underwood, besides directing the
school, will give violin instruction and a
course in orchestral organization espec
ially designed for music supervisors.
“We hope to make this the biggest
and most successful summer school ses
sion iu the history of the school,” said
Mr. Underwood.

Latest Films Secured; Plan Is
to Make Up Deficit.
Starting on Tuesday evening of next
week, a fonr-night run of movies will be
screened at the Y. M. C. A. lmt. The
purpose of these shows is to raise money
to pay off the deficit incurred by the
organization during the past year. Be
sides high class Goldwyn films, various
other attractions, including a number by
the glee club double quartet, and a stunt
from either the April Frolic or the Jun
ior Vaudeville, will be put. on.
Shows will be put on Tuesday, Wed
nesday and Thursday nights for Univer
sity students and Friday night's run will
be for town children, with some added
attraction for them. Two good films
have been ordered, “The Street Called
Straight” and “Scratch My Back.” Both
have been very popular screen produc
tions wherever shown. With the former,
a film of the recent Oregou-O. A. C.
football game will be shown, and with
the latter a picture of the Olympic
Games. They have been secured through
the extension division and have not been
shown before University students before.
The films have been ordered from the j
Goldwyn Film Company. Each picture
will be shown for two nights.
Due to the considerable overhead ex
pense of getting the pictures a large
crowd each night is necessary to moke
the movies a success. Those in charge
hope to arrange with the dean of women
to let University women have dates for
these shows. The “Y” can hold a large
number of people, and if the place is
filled up each night, enough will be raised
to meet the present deficit.
The “Y” does not make any plea for
support of the movies on a charitable
basis. The movies will be well worth
attending, as they will be of the some
class as the best shows put on down
town with the added attractions of films
of athletic events, and numbers by stu
dents. The “Y” owns a good up-to-date
movie machine, and a competent operator
has been secured.
During the past year the “Y” has as
sumed a more important place on the
campus than heretofore. Its growing
usefulness has entailed an increasing
amount of expense. For this reason it is
necessary that the present deficit be
paid off. in order that the new adminis
tration can start out unfettered.
Itetail selling, introduction to advertis
ing, credits and collections, advanced
commercial geography, and introduction
to foreign trade are new courses in com
merce authorized by the hoard of higher
curricula of the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege. This makes it possible to arrange
another major group. The first three
courses are designed for freshmen, and
the last two for juniors. A new course in
card writing ana window decoration can
be given by the school of pharmacy in
which students in commerce are indirect
ly interested.
Students Give Popular Campus
Figure Standing Salute
At Assembly.
England In Terrible Plight;
Lot Bitterest of Any of *
Late Belligerents.
Rarely docs a campus assembly speak
er receive n standing salute when intro
duced at Villard. but when he does it is
conclusive evidence of his popularity and
the high place he occupies in the estima
tion of faculty and student body. At the
weekly student gathering yesterday
morning Colonel John Leader, ex-officer
of the British army and former com
mandant of the Oregon cadets, was greet
ed by the spontaneous rising of his audi
ence when presented by President Camp
bell. thus indicating his held on the af
fections of those on the campus.
The colonel was scheduled to speak on
the subject of “An Oregonian in Eur
ope,” but the first half of the period
he devoted to recalling memories and
friendships formed during the stirring
days of campus training and paid a glow’
ing tribute to the efficiency, loyalty
and willingness of the cadet battalion
that he commanded.
With humor sparkled liberally through
his address and used tellingly to empha
size or contrast some point in his argu
ment, and the whole enhanced by an
inimitable English accent, the ex-eom
mnndant proved that ns an entertaining
public speaker he measures up to any
that have appeared on the platform dur
ing any assembly of the eollege year.
European Situation Dark.
Referring to his reeent trip to Europe
and tile conditions he found in the war
tbrn nations undergoing reconstruction,
the colonel drew n dark word-picture of
the situation in several of the lands that
he visited.
“Germany today is in the best condi
tion of any of the warring powers of
Europe,” was the colonel’s declaration,
“and though I do not believe in hitting
a man when he is down, I do believe
that she should be made to pay and help
meet the cost of the war that she start
ed. Belgium and Serbia have made great
progress in the transition to a peace
time basis, Italy is suffering under a
heavy load of Socialistic doctrines, while
England is in a most terrible condition—
her portion is the bitterest of the fight
ing nations.”
, Prohibition Is Praised.
Two enemies are throttling England,
says tlie colonel; namely, lirpior and Soc
ialism, the latter being nothing but bol
shevism with a shave, and he conveyed
his loathing for the former when he de
clared .that the prohibition act of the
United States was the greatest event for
good in the world since the birth of
Dwelling upon the Irish question and
the causes and the results of the civil
strife, the colonel told his hearers that
the public, insofar as the present situa
tion is concerned, “want light but are
getting heat.” and further advised them
not to give too much credence to the re
ports corning from the affected districts.
“I am an Irish native, an Irish land
lord, and an Irish Protestant, who al
ways lived in harmony with my Catholic
neighbors,” said the speaker. “I have
served in an English regiment and I grad
uated from an English college, but I car
ry no brief for England. I do not think
she is altogether guiltless in the matter
of the present civil conflict.”
The former war-time faculty member
closed his talk to the students with the
hope and the prediction of a greater
Oregon, ami the declaration that he re
garded Eugene as his first permanent
home since embarking upon his long mil
itary career that has carried him to all
parts of the world.
