Play to be Produced Seen by
Few People
When Barrie's ‘’The Wedding Guest”
is produced on the campus next Wed
nesday and Thursday the faculty and
students will have the opportunity of
seeing a play which few people have
witnessed. The play has had only a
short run in the United States and has
never gone on the road. In spite of the
fact that it is produced so little, it is
considered by dramatic critics to be
the best play Barrie has written. It
is a play which holds the interest un
til the very end, and the conclusion
is an absolute surprise. It has an end
ing which the entire audience will un
doubtedly find satisfactory. There is
no sign of morbidness in the play,
which if handled in another way might
easily become morbid, for into it has
been woven brilliant comedy. The play
offers unusual character work and with
the carefully selected cast it is expected
that every offered opportunity in the
play will be brought out.
The story is about a young girl who
has been brought up by a lazy, opti
mistic father who has not taken the
trouble to teach her how to face any
thing difficult. The young girl, Mar
garet, played by Lorna Coolidge, is
called upon to face a difficult situation
shortly after her marriage to an artist.
Margaret proved surprisingly equal to
the problem in spite of the fact that
her father taught her only to look on
the bright side of life. Mrs. Omaney,
the guest at the wedding about whom
the play is named, loved the artist be
fore his marriage and had returned to
Scotland only to live over again the
happy days she had spent there long
before. Mrs.Omnaney is played by
Hildegarde Repenin who will for the
first time take a leading part in a
Guild hall production. The artist, Paul
Digby, is played by Arthur Johnson
and the careless father by Clair Keen
ey. Much of the humor of the play is
brought out through the father’s lines.
He finds a bright side to everything,
even the marriage of his only child,
he finds will mean that he can smoke
in the drawing room.
Margaret’s aunt, Lady Divnwoodie,
who is an aristocratic old Scotch lady
is played by Margaret Nelson and the
best man at the wedding of Margaret
and Paul, which takes place in the
first act, is Delbert Faust. The maid
of honor will be played by Ma
bel Gilham. The reverend Mr- Gibson
who marries the young couple and who
is an old friend of Margaret’s father
will be played by Virgil Mulkev. The
role of Jenny Geddes will be taken by
Doris Pittenger. The servants and
other brides maids and the flower girls
will be taken by members of the lower
So much trouble has arisen in seat
ing every one in Guild hall that it was
found necessary to install a new re
served section plan and for the “Wed
ding Guest” the center isles will be
E. C. Edmunds, President to Address
Students at Assembly; Personal
Interviews Sought
A telegram received hy the Univer
sity “Y” from Hal Donnelly, former
secretary of the campus association,
urges Oregon to answer the call made
to American colleges and universities
to supply men for the faculty of the
Crnton Christian College in China.
“'rhis college is doing valuable work >n
molding the future of China,” says

pert in it.”

kind of work, and line them up for

Stricken Ones Not Daunted by Ten
Cent Dispensary Tee
You can’t keep ’em away. Even the
formidable barrier of a dime, ten cents,
the tenth part of a dollar, fails to daunt
the onrush of stricken humanity which
flocks to the University dispensary
each day for sympathy and throat
spray. Contrary to popular supposi
tion, the ten-cent fee imposed on each
sufferer who huskily demands “throat
spray,” has failed as a preventive a
gainst “colds-in-the-head” and what
ever other colds there be. People will
enjoy ill health, and the dispensary con
tinues to grow and prosper, and to buy
more throat spray with which to en
tice the student body. An average
of 90 persons a day have reported to
the dispensary for treatment since the
winter quarter opened, and the lar
gest percent of these have been de
votees of the glisterine gargle. Ob
servation explains the charm of the
throat spray. Enter a victim whose
voice sounds like the dim echo of a
faraway past, exit victim, three min
utes later, a second Desmothenes min
us the pebbles. Like Postum—There’s
a Reason.
Freshmen Lead Classes in Numbers;
More Juniors Than Sophs;
226 Fail to Return
Registration for the winter term has

campus this term making the total reg

terms of 1920-21 show a total of 1845

The freshmen class with it’s 650
members is, as usual, the largest but
contrary to custom, the junior class
with a total of 404 has an* enrollment
of four more members than the sopho

uate and 123 special students. The law
school has 9 special students.
According to office records, 266 Fall
term students failed to return. Of the
students “flunking out,” a big major

Amount of Mail Handled Exceeds That
Of Any Other Term
An average of between 2500 and 3000
pieces of mail are being handled daily
at the campus postoffice so far during
the Winter term, according to a re
port made yesterday by H. M. Fisher,
postmaster. The amount of mail han
dled, both incoming and outgoing, is
far in excess of that handled last term.
The parcel post service is also holding
up well, 40 or 50 packages being the
usual number passing through the of
fice every day. At least one sack of
insured mail is taken care of dailv.
The postoffice has been making a
specialty of handling student mail for
seoeral years, and the business is in
creasing constantly, according to -Mr.

Hank Foster Says Men May Work on
the Cinders Whether or Not They
Can Pass Swimming Requirements
Contrary to what seems to be the gen
eral impression it is not necessary for
a man to be able to pass the physical
ability test before he can turn out for
track, according to “Hank-’ Foster,
who has charge of this branch of athle
tic work. If a man shows enough ability
to be selected for the varsity squad
he will be relieved from his regular gym
work whether he can pass the test or
The impression has been rather general,
says Foster, that if a man couldn’t swim
he would not be allowed to run. It is
true that men not selected for the var
‘sity squad or for the freshman squad
‘will have to take these tests but. the
work will not be required in addition to
what the regular men do. Foster asks
that that any men who have not been 1
truning out for track because of the
idea that they first had to successfully 1
pass the physical ability see him and
arrange to go out.
