CONCERT BY QLEE GLOB
HEARD BY EARGE CROWD
Full Chorus, Quartettes and
Solos Feature Program
In University circles there is no stu
dent organization which gives more
universal pleasures and satisfaction
than the Men’s Glee club, if the crowds
that attend their concerts are a fair
indication. The concert last Saturday
evening brought out one of the largest
audiences that has gathered at the Wo
man’s Memorial hall for some time.
Despite the general prevalence of
colds and sore throats during the past
week the metnbers of the club seemed
to have escaped the epidemic for their
voices were in splendid condition. The
first part of the program was replete
with selections by the full glee club,
lively encores, piano and vocal solos
Glen Morrow, baritone, and Arthur
Johnson, tenor, were especially pleas
ing in their solo work. Ronald Ried
has already made himself famous on
the campus as a concert pianist. His
“Sixth Hungarian Rhapsody” by Liszt,
won much applause and his encore num
ber, the “Juba Dance” by Nathaniel
Dott, was also very effective.
Local Color on Program
Part II of the program consisted of
comedy, tragedy and a variety of selec
tions in lighter vein. “The Grass
Hopper,” a tragic grand opera, in which
the untoward death of “G. Hopper”
was told in various versions of song
by those directly interested in his de-.
mise, made a great hit with the audi
ence. Local color with thinlv-veiled
allusions to local personalities were
scattered about generously throughout
the rest of the program. The “Booster
Song” was brought up to date in order
to keep pace with the year and the
Quartetts Conclude Program
Two readings by Nelson English,
“The Theta Sunday Tea” and “An
Hour at the Rainbow” were especially
clever take-offs, as was also a reading
by Cyril Vallentvne in which he held
forth on “Those Foolish Questions.”
Vocal and instrumental quartets brought
the evening’s entertainment to a happy
conelusion. The necessity of calling
off the dance which was to have been
given immediately after the concert
as announced by John Stark Evans,
director of the club, made possible
several extra numbers in addition to
the printed program which follows:
(a) Oregon Pledge .Evans
(b") Love Symphony .Damrosch
Landsighting (Incidental Solo—Glen
Solo—Che Gelida Manina, from “la
Arthur Johnson, tenor
(a") Her Rose (Incidental Solo—Glen
(b") Tnvictus .1.Huhn

Castilla—A ballad of Spain . Protheroe
“The Grass Hopper”—Tragic grand

with modern perversions.

MENTAL TESTS ARE GIVEN
Miss Montgomery Aids Grade Teachers
to Know Students Better
Miss Ruth Montgomery, instructor in
the school of education, gave mental
tests to the grade children of New
berg last week. This work is a part
of a service established by the Univer
sity for the use of superintendents and
teachers in places where mental tests
are not ordinarily available. By means
of these tests the amount and causes
of retardation and the ability of ex
ceptional pupils are determined, enabl
ing the teacher to obtain a better
knowledge of the conditions under
which he is working.
Miss Montgomery will leave the first
of next week for Ashland and Med
ford, where she will conduct similar
tests. She will be gone two weeks.
Professor F. L. Stetson, of the school
of education, visited the Junior high
school at McMinnville last week.
FRIDAY DANCE PLANNED
Order of “O” Hoping Ban Will be
Lifted Before End of Week
A student body dance given by the
“Order of the O” is planned for Fri
day night in place of the one which
was to have been held last Friday. The
“Order” is making plans with the hope
that the ban will be removed by health
authorities by the end of the week.
The feature of the dance will be
stunts by the neophytes of the letter
men’s association, which will be given
during the program. It will be held in
the armory immediately after the
basketball game with O. A. C.
Glen Walkley, president, said yester
day that a five piece orchestra has
been engaged and would start the mu
sic just as soon as the freshmen have re
moved the bleachers from the floor.
He predicts that it will be one of the
beet affairs of the year. The admission
price will be cut to 50 cents.

The discrepancy between the time
pieces in the various class rooms works
a constnnt injustice to students and in

own. There should be a system of elec

To the Editor:
What do you think of a fellow who will
spend pleasant evenings at a young
ladies home, enjoying her hospitality in i
the way of pleasant dinners or evening
refreshments, and then never take her i
out to any entertainments, or perhaps
sneak in late ana then offer to see her
home. I have attended other colleges
and I say in all frankness that I have 1
never seen fellows so neglect themselves
socially as we are doing. Where can ;
we find more charming young ladies
than we have here at the U. O.f Shame

LOCAL CO ED HONORED
Brilliant Reception Given in Honor of
Talented Miss Ingram; Music and
Dancing Features of the Evening.
A very brilliant and splendid reccp- ^
tion was given in honor of Miss Ingram I
last evening by her many friends and !
acquaintances. The reception hall was
very attractively decorated with potted j
ferns and palms. Indirect lighting was
used creating a very pleasing effect.
The fore part of the evening was de- !
voted to music and classics from Men- i
delssohn, Wagner, and Paderewski 1
were greatly enjoyed by all. Miss In- i
gram herself played two numbers on !
the piano after which the lights were
subdued and the remainder of the even- ;
ing was spent in dancing.
Much unfavorable comment was
made concerning Miss Ingram’s danc
ing and some were heard to remark
that it was a shame that she neglected
her dancing for otherwise she was so
talented. If she had known that Mrs.
Bayh conducts advanced classes every
Tuesday at Rankin Hall on West Sev
enth right off Willamette she surely
would have joined.
Punch and wafers were served which '
concluded the evening. All declared
that it was one of the most charming
receptions they had ever attended and
wished Miss Ingram great success in
