Productions to be Given Three
Nights Hereafter
‘“Disraeli,” which was seen in Guild
theatre Wednesday, Thursday and Fri
day nights of this week was the
fourth successful play produced by
the Guild companies since college
opened in September, in addition to
Shaw’s “Pymalion,” given in the Eu
gene theatre two nights last term for
the benefit of the Elks Christmas
Cheer fund.
So great an interest has been taken
in the work of the department that
“Disraeli” was played three nights
instead of the usual two in order to
accommodate the crowds. As this plan
has proved very successful in this play',
it is likely that all the plays from now
on will be played three nights. This
plan is another step in the direction
of a permanent company on the cam
pus which plays every night.
In the department of Drama and the
speech arts the Oregon campus has
something that is almost unequaled in
any university in the United States
and several eastern colleges have
modeled departments after this one.
The theatre itself is the most nearly
complete theatre in any university on
the Pacific coast. The work which
the students receives in the department
is of value if he expects to make dram
atics his profession. All the prepara
tion is thoroughly practical. The work
is also of benefit to students in law
or those who desire to improve the qual
ity of the speaking voice and to acquire
a better bearing on the stage.
Since the department has been in
existance over 120 play's have been pro
duced. These range from Shakespeare
to farse and the student plays a large
range of parts.
Granville Barker, one of the great
est living English playwrights and
producers, when visiting the campus a
few' years ago said the department of
drama at Oregon was the most encour
aging thing he had seen while in this
country. The fact that the department
is becoming known all over the United
States seems to prove that Mr. Barker’s
compliment to the local players was
Since 190S the dramatic company has
been steadily growing, and last year
when the department was changed to
the department of drama and the
speech arts and the company divided
into the junior and the senior compan
ies, more rapid grow-th has taken place
than ever before.
Inquiries From All Parts of Country
Pour in to Office of
Dean Dyment
When Dean Dyment prepared and
presented a code of ethics for jour
ualism to the Oregon State Newspaper
conference session at the University in
January, and when that code of ethics
was adopted by the session, the Dean
let himself in for a lot of correspond
ence. Scarcely a day passes that the
mails do not bring various letters rela
tive to the code; requests for copies,
commendation on its adoption, praise
for the writer of it, thank-you notes
for copies received, and even, the Dean
hints, an offer of some sort from a
movie company.
Many of the letters are from schools
of philosophy and journalism in the
larger colleges throughout the country.
One man writes for a copy of the code
that he may digest its contents and dis
cuss it full}- at a lecture he is to give
to Cornell students. The Bureau of
Vocational Guidance at Harvard wants
copies of it. Rotary Clubs and Civic
Clubs and the Mergenthaler Linotype
iCompany and the Christian Science
Monitor, all these and many others,
have been interested enough in the code
to write to the dean about it.
Summaries of the code have been
printed in New York, Detroit and Bos
ton papiers, and in eastern papers in
The body of the code that has ex
cited so much comment is set forth
undei seven main headings that are
as follows:
“Sincerity and Truth;” “Care, Com
petency and Thoroughness;” “Justice,
mercy and Kindness;” “Moderation,
Conservation and Proportion;” “Parti
sanship and Propaganda;” “Public Ser
vice and Social Policy;” “Advertising
and Circulation.”

As a result of the wilfullness of the
defendant. Miss Dickey, who is a senior
in the department of music in the Uni
versitv, Mr. Wells avers that he has
suffered great mental anguish, has been
unable to successfully prosecute his
avocation as an attorney by reason of
thinking of the bliss that is being
denied him by the conduct of the de
fendant, and has otherwise been in
jured. As a balm for his injured dig
nity and feeling, Mr. Wells begs the
court to decree that the defendant be
enjoined from further continuing to
harms* the feelings of plaintiff by her
stubborn refusal to comply with the
order and rules of the senior class, and
that it be ordered, adjudged and do

Miss Dickey from the date of the ren
of the rendition of the decree commence
negotiations tending toward the con
tracting of a date with the plaintiff.
In an interview with persons who
were acquainted with Miss Dickey's
whereabouts recently it was found that
this senior lady was attending a per
formance. Mr. Wells could not be lo
cated in his law office or by long dis
tance telephone that same evening, but
intimate friends of the attorney said
they believed the lawyer was indus
trially working on a case.
American Students Get Work
in Science and Literature
The American-Seandinavian Founda
tion has sent annoucemet of 20 fellow
ships of at least $1000 each that it will
award for graduate study in the Scan
dinavian countries. Ten of these fel
lowships will be for study in Sweden,
five for Denmark, and five for Norway.
Most of the fellowships are offered for
science subjects, several in language
and literature, others in forestry, min
ing and metallurgy, and humanist sub
Candidates must have been born in
the United States or its possessions.
They must be capable of original re
search and independent study and each

Melvin Solve, an instructor in rhet
oric in the University, attended the
University of Christiana last year, on
a scholarship from the American-Sean
dinavian Foundation.
Those interested in the fellowships
offered should see Dean Dyment soon,
as application papers must be filed in
the office of the Foundation before
March 15.
Chief Object of Publication is to Keep
in Touch With Alumnae of
the Organization
“The Handshake,” the yearly publi
cation put aut by Theta Sigma Phi,
women’s journalism fraternity, will
soon go to press, according to Velma
Rupert, editor. This small newspaper
is issued for the purpose of keeping in
touch with the alumnae of the associ
ation. Personal letters are sent to
every alumnae asking news of her work,
and these letters, together with news
of the local chapter and of the growth
and changes in the department of jour
nalism are published in “The Hand
shake.” A chapter roll is always given,
with the latest addresses of the active
alumnae members.
A special effort is being made this
year to have the paper a good piece
of work from the standpoint of ap
pearance and topography. Care will
be taken in selecting the style and
size of the type used in order that a
well balanced effect may be had. Since
a copy of “The Handshake” is always
sent to all other college chapters, of
which there are 23, it is desired that
the paper shall be representative of the
best work done by the women jour
nalists at the University of Oregon.

Endurance Required; Heavies
Seek Prize Necktie
L. P. Putnam, “Y” secretary, is
very enthusiastic over the interest
shown in the coming tournament,
Speaking of prospects for the shuffle
hoard championship, he says: “ So far
Yern Bullock and I are the only real
known contenders for the pennant in
the brass knob game, though I will ad
mit that neither of us can be sure of
winning our matches by an overwhelm
ing score. As a team, Bullock and I
will be hard to beat, and after these
matches are played off we may seek
some outside games. ’ ’
The two Karpenstein brothers and
E. Blood and R. Gerhard have signed up
for the strongarm game and are devot
ing all their spare moments to per
fecting offensive and defensive tactics.
Maccobv, while not so outspoken as
Bullock and Putnam, is easily conceded
the final victory in the chess matches.
Some dark horses among those enrolled
lately may develop, so possibly the fol
lowers of the game are due foT a sur
prise. Ken Moore, who is well known
for his ability with the drum sticks,
may prove to be a chess slicker also,
while Young and Lien, the latest to en
roll. may develop into claimants for the
In checkers, little is known of the
mental strength and endurance of any
of the contenders for the checkered
necktie. Hank Cossman, a super-heavy
weight wrestler of local fame, has an
nounced his intention of entering, as
have John Dye, Emerald Sloan and Dell
Tedrow. Practices in this game will
probably be secret, according to those
in charge, in order that no advance in
formation on the ability and style of
individual players may be known until
the contest starts. “Hunk” Latham,
well known for his football tactics,
while not entered in the tournament,
has signified his intention of challeng
ing the champion for the campus title.
Names and time of play of the vari
ous games will be posted today in the
“Y” hut. Anyone wishing to enter
should sign up at once.
Normal Arts Club Making Batik De
signs to Raise Funds; Girls’ Pen
dants for Sale Also.
Neckties will soon assume a more
important place in campus garb than
that of mere habit, convenience or con
Ventionality. The men on the campus
will be able to or(ler, at reasonable
prices, neckties to match their eyes,
marcels, or new spring suits. This is
not a freakish idea but a conservative
fact, and ties that will suit every per
sonality and yet not offend the most
modest tastes will soon appear.
The members of the Normal Arts
Club, under the direction of Miss Maude
'Kerns, are making Batik designs on
crepe de ehene ties. Batik is a process
of dying with wax resist and is one of
the very oldest crafts. It originated in
Java, was itroduced into Holland and
recently has come into great favor.
Ties like those the art students are
making have been selling in San Fran
cisco and other places for as much as
five dollars, but it is planned to sell
them here for about $1.2.’).
The Normal Arts and Sculpture clubs
are endeavoring to raise funds with
which to purchase glass cases for the
protection of the mandarin coat exhibit
which Mrs. Murray Warner donated to
the University, and the sale of these
'neckties is the means which the Normal
Arts Club chose to raise the money.
Girls’ needs are not being neglected,
as colored ties and art pendants are
being made for them.

down she traced its influence on litera
ture. “The most recent movement is
that of the Dandaists. who, because of
their audacity, their irreverent wit, and
certain flair for self-advertisement,
have attracted considerable amount of
attention. The name Dada means hob
by, and the declared aim of the writers
of this group is to amuse themselves at
the expense of every accepted idea or
tradition. They make fun of every
form of faith—religious, philosophical,
scientific, aesthetic. It is a completely
skeptical and destructive movement,”
concluded Miss Goldsmith, “and for
that reason will probably be only a
phase of contemporary literature.”

David Hauser, Phi Delta Kappa His
torian, Confers With Local Chapter
David Hauser, national historian of
Phi Delta Kappa, honorary education
fraternity, spent a few hours on the
campus yesterday in conference with
members of the local chapter. Mr
Hauser briefly outlined the activities
of several western chapters and learned
of those of the Oregon chapter. Mr.
Hauser was the installing officer for
Phi Delta Kappa here, February 1921,
and for that reason takes a personal
interest in its activity. Mr. Hauser is
a Stanford man, his home being in
San Francisco. He is interested in the
application of mental tests to indus
trial enterprises.

Augustus Pitou Inc., will present at
the Eugene theatre on Wednesday, Feb
ruary 22, the reports of out-of
town managers and newspaper critics
are of the unanimous in their opinions
that it is the best work Miss Robson
has ever done.
The play is a comedy in three acts,
“It Pays to Smile” dramatized by
Ethel Watts Mumford from Nina Wil
cox Putnam’s delightful stories which
have been one of the fiction features
of the Saturday Evening Post, and the
principal character of which, Freedom
Talbot, gives Miss Robson a study
equal to, if not greater than that of
“Aunt Mary” which the clever star
made famous several years ago.
August Pitou Inc., has given the play
an elaborate dress, the scenes being laid
at the Copely Plaza Hotel in Boston,
and at Pinto Pegg’s ranch in Cali
fornia, and has surrounded Miss Robson
with a most admirable cast of players.
