Oregon Daily Emerald VOLUME XXIII. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1921 NUMBER 31 COMPANY TO MAKE FIRST APPEARANCE AT GUILD TONIGHT “Why Marry” Said to be Mod ern and Unique; Will be Given Two Days IRENE STEWART HAS LEAD Comedy Will Handle Marriage Problem; Prof. Reddie Directs Acting Tonight and Thursday nights “Why .Marry?”, the first play to be produced by the dramatic company this term, will be seen in Guild hall. This play written by Jesse Lynch Williams received first prize in a play writing contest in Columbia University in 1917 and was successful when produced at the Astor theatre that year. The play is modern and is a play handled through unique comedy. In spite of the title which might lead some to think it is a farce it is de cidedly a problem play. The marriage problem although discussed thoroughly is handled in a kindly way with offense toward none. The leading roles are played by Irene Stewart and iJorvell Thompson. They play the part of a young chemist and his assistant who will not marry be cause marriage would interfere with the chemist’s career. The old judge is played by Claire Keeney and without a doubt it is the best bit of character work he has done on the campus. Elizabeth Melis has the part of the conventional wife and although this is the first dramatic work she has done on the campus she promises to be very good in the part of an old fashioned woman in a new fashioned home. The cast for the entire play is: The young chemist, Ernest, Norvell Thompson; Helen, his assistant, Irene Stewart; Claire Keeney, the judge; Rex, the young neighbor who has been brought up to be nothing but rich, Delbert Faust; Theodore, Kenneth Armstrong; John, brother to Helen, Verne Fudge; Helen, his wife, Elizabeth Melis; and Jean, younger sister to Helen who has been brought up to be married and nothing else, Doris Pittenger. The play is under the direction of Professor Fergus Reddie. The box office will be open today and in as much as the house will likely be sold out it is suggested that persons wish ing tickets make arrangements to get •them early. MANY STUDENTS NEGLECT TO PAY LAB FEES ON TIME "University Regulation Suspends Those Who Did Not Pay Up On Or Before Nov. 1 Procrastination is the thief of time and of an extra dollar as well, many university students found when they received letters from the registrar’s office concerning unpaid laboratory fees. Although, there with usual last minute rush to the administration build ing, the lines of students, each armed with the latest cheek from father, were long enough to rival the wartime bread lines of Europe, a very large number of students still were unable to reach the “pay lab fees here” window be fore November 1, the last day on which such fees were payable. Notices have been sent out to these students, says E. P. Lyon, of the busi ness office, advising them that their lab fees are unpaid, and quoting ^the University regulation which automati cally suspends from the University any student not paying his lab fees within the given time. A student thus suspended may be reinstated in the University upon the payment of his fees with the additional charge of one dollar. He must, however, forfeit his term’s credit in that course for which he has neglected to pay the fee unless he petitions the faculty for mitigation of the ruling. If the petition is grant ed, credit may be received for the course. POLO STATUS TO BE RAISED Plans are under way at Stanford to give polo the status of a minor sport. BASKETBALL PRACTICE The following men report tomor row evening at 9 o’clock at the gym. for beginning Varsity basketball practice. Beller, M. Latham. Zim merman. Couch, Beaver, Edlund, Yeatoh. K. Moore, Clark, Black. Roekhey. Burnett, Altstock, Goar, McMillan “Why Marry?" Why Not? Asks Tommy Wyatt The president of the junior class. Tommy Wyatt, is, not going to attend the play, "Why Marry?”, which is to be given Wednesday and Thursday evenings. As far as Tommy can see there is no reason for his attendance. He answered the question, affirma tively, eight months ago in this city, when he took for his bride Miss Mar !tha Jean Westwood, of Portland. One passing the Kappa Sigma house at noon yesterday would have been ex cused if he had turned in a fite alarm. The department would have found 30 men drawing on Wyatt's cigars, and tendering congratulations through a ; haze of smoke. On March 30 Wyatt got the co ! operation of one of the brothers to act i as witness, went with his bride-to-be to the Baptist church, and had the [minister do the rest. Not until yester ! day was the fact made public. Mrs. : Wyatt is now attending school in Port land. Tommy is well known on the campus in student affairs and was elected jun ior president by a large majority last spring. He is also a letter man, making his “O” last spring in the half mile. It cannot be further stated with i authority that men will not keep sec ! rets, and some women, for that matter, as Tommy’s wedding has been § secret since March 30. Mrs. Wyatt will Visit here next week, and Tommy will keep on going to the University, preparing to enter the medical school in Portland. So Tommy is unanimously forgiven for not attending the Guild Theatre pro duction this week. ADMISSION PRICE IS CUT ORCHESTRA TO FURNISH MUSIC EARLY PART OF EVENING University Orchestra Will Play First Numbers; Affair to End at 8 O’clock A cut in the price of admission for the concert-dance to be given by the University Orchestra in the Woman’s building tomorrow evening has been made because of a new ruling under which the dance must close at II o’clock instead of at 11:30. The new prices for the entertainment according to the Orchestra management are: single admission to the concert or dance 50 cents; to both concert and dance 75 cents. Another change in the original plan is to have the dance numbers which are to be played by the whole Orches tra come at the beginning -of the dance program. This will speed up the dances considerably and will also virtually lengthen the concert because the dance selections chosen for that part of the dance are from among the very best dance music to be found. The “Bar carolle” and “Arabella” waltzes and “Say it with Music fox trot are among the numbers. The proceeds of the entertainment are to be used to increase the number of instruments in the orchestra. With the financial help derived from the concert-dance given a year ago instru ments were bought which have given the director material aid in making a more balanced organization. It is the hope of the director to come as near to developing a symphony on the cam pus as is possible. OREGON CLUB TO AID CAMPAIGN OF LETTERS Organization Undertakes to Beach More Than 1200 Former Students For Homecoming Sudents not connected with any housing organization will assume their share of writing letters to alumni in viting them back for Homecoming. At a meeting of the Oregon Club in the “Y” hut Monday night the names of those graduates who were not con nected with any fraternity or Friendly hall while in the University were given to the members, each one taking from five to ten names. There are more than 1200 graduates and former stu dents under this classification, each of whom will receive a personal letter from a student. The names of the women graduates will be handled by the Women’s Oregon Club. Glen Walklev, of the Order of the “O”, explained some of the campus traditions which are frequently vio lated, especially the matter of saying “Hello.” Del Oberteuffer urged every one to turn out for the yell practices and rallies before Homecoming. Committees were appointed by Emer ald Sloan, president of the club, to prepare for the Oregon club smoker to be held December 3. About 150 attended the meeting. Emerald Sloan acted as chairman. TICKETS F0R01C. CONTEST READY FOR STODERTSATCO-OP Sale of Seats Expected to be Largest in History of University RESERVATIONS FOR ALUMNI Campus Organizations May Each Have as Many as 30 Places Held What will probably amount to the largest seat sale for any game ever held on the Oregon campus, is now in progress. Tickets for the Oregon-O. A. C. game are now at the Co-op, and can be had by the students upon pre sentation of the A. S. U. O. member ship card. A certain number will be punched on each card, so that no stu dent will be able to get more than one ticket without paying extra for it. Special sections will be reserved for rooters of both institutions, but no one will be allowed in either section unless he is wearing a rooter’s cap. May Reserve 30 Seats Campus organizations may make block reservations for as many as 30 seats, according to Jack Benefiel, grad uate manager. These tickets will be held at his office as late as November 17, but if they are not called for and paid for by that date, they will be sold to the general public or to other stu dents. This action is taken in order to avoid the loss that would occur should reservations be held up until the last minute and then the organiza tion would contermand its order. Grandstand seats are to sell for $2.50, $2.00, and $1.50. These prices include the general admission as well as the grandstand seat. In comparison with the minimum price of $3.00 and tjie maximum of $6, which was charged at the Stanford game, these prices are de cidedly reasonable. Bleacher Seats Reserved Some very good seats in the bleach ers are reserved also, and are selling (Continued on page three) Noted Baritone Will Present Variety of Selections in ' Villard Recital SINGING BEGUN AS BOY OF 8 Artist Received Early Start in Choir of Old Trinity Church, New York A vide range of songs constitutes the program which will lie presented by Erwyn Mutch in the concert in Vil lard hall Saturday night, November 12. This concert, which comes as a part of the Armistice week-end program, is the second of the series which is being given under the direction of the Wo man's Ijoaguel of the University, anti is included in the season ticket pur chased at the time of the Cyrena an Gordon concert. Mr. Mutch, who is a singer of na tional reputation, began liis career as a singer when a lad of eight years. At that time, as a member of a boy’s choir in New Jersey, his voice attracted the attention of several prominent choir directors of New York City, but because he was such a youngster, his parents hesitated in giving their per mission to his going to the city for rehearsals and services. Soon Becomes Soloist But after much persuasion on the part of the director of the choir of Old Trinity church, they finally con sented to the boy’s going. It was only a short time, then, before he be came the soloist in the Trinity choir. He kept this up for several years, and after his voice changed continued his studies and sang in several choirs in New York, finally being engaged as the ■ baritone soloist of the choir of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York. Mutch remained at the Cathedral for over four years until the outbreak of the World War, when he enlisted in the army and was sent (Continued on page four) ANDY SMITH DEPLORES TENDENCY TO GAMBLE ON FOOTBALL CONTESTS California Coach Sees Ruin of arid Game If Growing Evil Goes Unchecked; Oregon Alumni Want Annual Clash with Washington, Ancient Blval; Stanford Has No Alibi for Failure to Beat Sundodgers. By MAX “Andy” Smith, head coach at the University of California has deplored the spirit that seems to be gaining a hold among the football fans. “I hate to see football put on such a basis that the interest in the game is only that of commercial gain,” he said to a member of the Daily Californian staff. “I think betting will be the death knell of college football unless it is stopped before it goes any far ther.” “Every game I am asked how one ought to bei and I don’t like it. It breaks up the morale of the squad. If the game results in an unexpected manner, the players and coaches are censured and it hurts the men to have any such adverse feeling. It is the sin cere wish of the coaching staff here, and at other colleges, that the stu dents get behind the game and keep it the clean sport that it has been.” It might not be amiss to pay tribute to Andy Smith for the sportsmanship which his teams have displayed in the ! games they have been in this year. There are perhaps, a number who will take issue on the question of his sports manship throughout. But Smith has - voiced his idea of the betting game, and he has scouted the danger. It is worthy of consideration. • • • Jimmie Richardson, the well known Aggie manager breezed onto the cam pus yesterday and talked shop with Graduate Manager Benefiel for a few hours. Jimmie savB the O. A. C. team is in first class shape for the clash with jtae Cougars at Corvallis Friday. “We are not predicting, but it will ; be a great battle,” he declared. “There is no overconfidence on our side, what we might have had, Stanford took out of us at Palo Alto.” Jimmie took 3500 student tickets back to Corvallis with him for the Oregon-Aggie battle here next week. Stanford and Washington battled to a scoreless tie, in the stadium at Se attle, Saturday. Another upset in the dope and yet, those who witnessed the game did not marvel at the score. Big, lanky Stanford was fought to a standstill by little, fighting Washing ton. The game was played in Stan ford ’s territory in the first two per iods, the third period was anybody’s game, the last period showed Stan ford to have the better of it. Washington had a chance to score by the place kick method in the first half when they piaced the ball on Stanford’s 20-yard line. They didn’t take the chance. Stanford’s chance to score came in the final period when their quarter sent a pretty pass across the goal line to an end, who caught the ball and then dropped it. They chanced it, but failed. •California did just what Andy Smith predicted they wo^uld against the Uni versity of Southern California Tro jans. Beat ’em 38 to 7. It was an overwhelming defeat, and the Trojans have a good eleven too. Washington meets the Bears Saturday, and then Stanford and California meet in the big game, November 19. Although dope has been going by the boards pretty fast of late, it is not probable that either the Sundodgers or the Cardinals will be able to put a crimp in the Bruins. Oregon alumni are bemoaning the fact that Washington and Oregon are not meeting on the grid this season. It is regrettable. Oregon and Wash ington are ancient rivals. Their meet ing every year should be guaranteed. Washington will be a member of the Northwest Conference this year if the other members of the conference ac cept their application. Oar Meisnest, the hustling graduate manager of the Northern school, declares that Wash ington is going to make application. It is hoped that they will be admitted. Stanford offered no alibis for their failnre to live up to the predictions of their coach Van Ghent at Seattle, Sat urday. Still they complained of the long trip and the heavy grid. I Hot Scrimmage and Surprise Feature Promised Rooters The first bleacher rally in prepara tion for the grand Homecoming thun derfest will be held on Hayward field at 4:30 Thursday afternoon. All men in the University are ex pected to cooperate with the yell kings by turning out for practice. The stunt which is to replace the serpentine will also be practiced tomorrow evening. Coach Huntington has promised as the big attraction for the pre-Home coming rally a lively scrimmage on Hayward. Also—and this is a secret ; which should lure the fair rooters ! out to the field—something is going to be toted out in front of the grand stand which will knock the Thunder ing Thousand for a cloudbank of astonishment—something which will eventually amaze the institution booked to invade Eugene en masse on Novombcr 19. DO. BOWMAN AT ASSEMBLY WELL KNOWN PORTLAND PASTOR TO TALK ON THURSDAY “Inward Earnestness” to be Subject of Address by Forceful and Interesting Speaker Dr. Harold Leonard Bowman, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of Portland, will deliver the assembly ad dress, Thursday morning, on the sub ject, “Inward Earnostness.” Dr. Bowman is widely known throughout the Middle West, and on the Pacific coast, as a forceful speaker of unusual interest. Although he has been a campus visitor on several oc casions Dr. Bowman has not previously addressed the student body, and Thurs day will be the first opportunity that Oregon students have had to hear him speak. “Dr. Bowman has made an onviablo record for himself, in his work in the Portland church. He is the youngest pastor that the Presbyterian church has ever had, and has just led the church through a notably successful year.” said Student Pastor Bruce T. Giffen, in commenting about Dr. Bowman. Previous to his acceptance of the Portland church, Dr. Bowman, was pas tor of a Chicago church. He was for merly an instructor in the protestant college at Beirut, Syria, and has travelled extensively in Svria and Egypt 58 STUDENTS PLACED BY Y Odd Jobs Predominate And Schedules Must be Arranged to Fit Work The employment bureau of the Uni versity Y. M. C. A. has placed 58 stu dents in permanent part-time jobs, with a total pay of $5484.00, so far this term, according to Mrs. C. R. Donnelly, hut mother. Odd jobs have been much more numerous. More than 300 of these have been filled, paying approxi mately $1000.00. Jobs are now being reported more slowly than earlier in the term. Mrs. Donnelly has quite a large list of ap plications, and in many cases work is urgently needed in order to continuo at the University. The chief difficulty encountered has been the arrangement of schedules. A number of the jobs have been waiting on table at housing j organizations, which requires that there I be no 8, 11, or 1 o’clock classes. Any student intending to secure such a po sition should therefore arrange his schedule accordingly at the beginning of next term. UNIVERSITY TO JOIN IN LEGION PROGRAM FOR ARMISTICE DAY Participation in Celebration Expected of Students and Faculty MARSHALL DANA TO SPEAK Patriotic Exercises Will be Held at Armory; Display of Flags Asked Students and faculty of the Univer sity are expected to participate in the down town observance of Armistice day, as planned by the American Legion. There will be no classes on Friday, and no special exercises on the campus. “In dismissing classes for the day,” said Karl Outhauk, execu tive secretary to President Campbell, “the University administration ex pects students and faculty to take part in the Lhgion’s program for the day.” The American Legion has planned a parade, a national salute, and an as sembly at the armory at which Mar shall N. Dana of Portland will be the speaker. The parade starting at 10:110, will be participated in by all patriotic, and civio bodies of the city. Major W. G. White will bo marshall of the parnde, and will make a later announcement of the line of march. The R. O. T. C. cadets undor Major R. C. Baird, with their band, will take a prominent part in the parade. Salute at Noon At 12 o ’clock noon, a national salute of 21 guns will be fired from Skin ner 's butte in honor of the unknown soldier. This will be followed by a bugler sounding “taps.” In accord ance with the proclamation of Presi dent Harding, every one is expected to stand for two minutos, from 12 to 12.02 in silent meditation, and prayer of thankfulness to the soldier dead. At 2 o’clock, an assembly of citizens and students will be addressed at tho armory, by Marshall N. Dana, associ ate editor of thb Oregon Journal. Mr. Dana will talk on Armistice Day, what it means to the ex-service man and to the general public. In such an address, said Mr. U. H. Tuttle, chair man of tho American Legion committee for Armistice Day, a speaker can hardly avoid touching on disarmament, also. Music for this assembly will be furnished by tho University orchestra and the school of music, John B. Wie fert, tenor, being the soloist. Not an Idle Holiday Mr. Tuttle voices the hope that all fraternity and sorority houses as well as private homes will display the na tional colors on Armistice day. In the conception of the American Legion, said Mr. Tuttle, Armistice day should (Continued on page four) AGGIE ROOTERS 3600 STRONG James J. Richardson, graduate man ager at O. A. C., was on the campus yesterday to arrange with Graduate Manager Jack Benefiel, for the reser vation of a block of seats at the Home coming game, for the O. A. C. rooters. 3500 seats were reserved for the Aggie supporters. Oregon Geologist Back After Year of Work in Philippines Hubert (>. Schenck of Medford, a | senior student on tho campus, returned | last week from the Philippine Islands, where he has been engaged for the past year in geological research for the Philippine government under the direction of Dr. Warren D. Smith, pro ' fessor of geology in the University. Mr. Schenck reports a number of 1 varied and unusual experiences. With Dr. Smith, he left Seattle a year ago last July for Hawaii, where they were ! met bv I)r. C. H. Edmundson, former professor of zoology at the University of Oregon, who is now doing scientific work in the College of Hawaii. To ; getber they attended the Pan-Pacific j Scientific congress in Honolulu. I,env ing the Islands, they went on to Japan, 1 where Mr. Schenck visited his brother, who has lived in the Orient for the paBt 18 years. Noteworthy work ac romplished by Mr. Schenck included (the preparation of a complete rata . louge of all the fossile in the bureau ! of science collection, and the prepara tion for publication in Die Philippine Journal of Science of a preliminary geological reconnaissance of Samar, re garding which island there was prac tically no geological information avail able prior to this inspection trip. A great part of his time was taken up with field work. Dr. Howard I. Cole, formerly professor of chemistry in the University, is also connected with the bureau of science in Manila. Concerning the political situation in the Islands Mr. Schenek declined to make any definite statement. He ex pressed the opinion, however, that the common people among the Filipinos are not desirous of complete independence from the United States. It is rather the Politicos or ruling classes that wish to be separate from Americau domination as a political move, he be lieves. During his trip home, Mr. Schenek passed thru the most severe typhon that has swept the north Pacific in the past :t() years, according to the obser vations made by the captain of the vessel on which he was a passenger. Thev overtook, en route, the steamer which was carrying the Japanese dele gates to the disarmament conference to be hel l in Washington next month.
