Oregon Daily Emerald VOLUME XXIII. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 1922 NUMBER 109 AWARDS FEATURED AT COLLEGE MIGHT Two Hour Line-up of Music, Oregon Spirit, Costs Only “Two Bits” “PREPPERS” ARE GUESTS Junior Week-end Stunts Show Well in Campus Movies; Husted Villain Although the college night program Friday is in the nature of a rally, dates and good clothes will be in evidence, according to Lyle Bartholomew, student body president, who is working with a large committee in staging theaffair. A varied program approximately two hours long has been planned and every thing is now ready to present the rather novel effect of having all the Univer sity musical organizations and the ath letic department of the school combined in a grand revue of college life. Lots of Harmony A selection from “The Only Girl” by Victor Herbert will be the number which Bex Underwood will feature in the orchestra work. The symphony or chestra has gained a reputation for pro ducing real harmony this year and their work is sure to be well received. “From the Land of the Sky Blue Water” and “The Moon Drops Low” will be the offerings of the girls’ glee club to the program. Both numbers were encored time and time again at the home concert and should be a bright spot in the program, according to cam pus music critics. “Skinny” Reid to Play The men’s glee club, which recently attained a striking success on their southern Oregon tour, will present “The Shores of Sighing” by Chaffin, and “Invictus” by Huhn. Their deep throated melody is sure to please the hundreds of preppers and students who will be present. Ronald “Skinny” Reid, formerly of Ellison-White chautauqua’s lineup of musical celebrities, and at present ac companist for the men’s glee, will play Rachmaninoff’s “Prelude” first as a massive number, then as a jazz piece. Bill Hayward with a lively talk and slow-moving pictures of many of the world’s famous athletes will be there to give the crowd an idea of a veteran trainer’s experiences in the world of sports. Junior Week-end Shown Then will come a film showing the activities of last Junior Week-end, fea turing Dave Husted as the “renegade frosh,” Hildegarde Repinen in a cam pus study scene, and all the freshmen of 1921 going through the ignominies of Froshdom. The tug-of-war, burning of the caps, and the wielding of the senior paddles are also shown among the other Junior Week-end frolics. The climax of the evening will be the presentation of football letters to 17 football men, basketball letters to the girls of the 1921 team, and possibly basketball letters. Difficulty in ob taining some of the sweaters and pins which were to have been presented will (Continued on page four) CO-EDS WILL HAVE ORDER OF “0” SIMILAR TO MEN’S New Organization Recognized and Favored by Student Council; Only Eight Eligible An order of the “O” among the co eds of the campus was officially recognized and favored at the meeting of the student council last night. The organization will be modeled after the men’s letter group and will include only co-eds who have earned an official “O” sweater. The organization was started several weeks ago but action by the student council has been pending on the report of a committee appointed to investigate the proposed plan and the constitution which the co-eds have drawn up. This report was favorable and the motion for the recognition of the Varsity or ganization was unanimously passed. The co-eds who are eligible for mem bership are Winifred Hobson, Helen Nelson. Valiere Coffey, Emily Perry, Dorothy McKee, Charlotte Howells, Marjorie Flegal and Helen King. Their letter awards were received in swim ming and basketball.

April 12—(P. I. N. S. Special)—Thirty j students in maritime commerce are at sea this quarter, bound for the Orient, Europe, South America, the east coast and Africa. N, M. Smith, ’25, William MaeAd anis, 23, Ray Hay, ’23, R. L. Ringler, ’23, and Howard Shaw, a graduate stu dent, are among those who have left school this quarter to go to sea. The department sends men as seamen on passenger liners or freighters. Many students make enough trips to qualify for a third mate’s license when they graduate. Fifteen months at sea and an examination are required. The navi gation course in the maritime commerce department prepares for this examina tion. A student going as an ordinary sea man clears $48 a month and can easily save $100 in the three months, accord ing to R. F. Farewell, associate in the maritime commerce department. Many students are promoted after the first few trips. One student became quar termaster on his second trip. A few positions in the shipping of fices are being filled by students through the maritime commerce de CAMPUS LUNCH CUT OFF JUNIOR COMMITTEE ABOLISHES WEEK-END FEATURE Vaudeville to Be Staged May 6; Novel Entertainment Promised; Dance Will Be Held April 22 The campus luncheon will be discon tinued this year as a feature of Junior week-end. Feeling that it was voicing the opinion of the student body, the general committee at its meeting last night decided that the University has outgrown the traditional event. Guests will be cared for in the same manner as at other meals. Plans for financing the erection of permanent bleachers and carrying on the other events of Junior Week-end are being completed. Junior Vaude ville will be put on May 6. This event is being well worked out, and a novel and enjoyable vaudeville is promised by the juniors. Next week, April 22, a student body dance will be staged by the juniors, as an additional means of revenue. The dance is to have good music as a fea ture, and a large crowd is expected. The larger amount of money needed this year is due to the erection of the bleachers, which will mean a consider able burden this year but will provide a permanent contribution to the an nual festivities. A work party is planned for Saturday morning, and an effort will be made to get all the men of the class of ’23 out from 8:30 to 12:00. The work in cludes clearing the ground and pre paring bases for the bleachers. Lum ber has been ordered, and the actual work of erection will commence next week. W. K. Newell, superintendent of properties, is furnishing men to help in the construction. Although this year’s Junior Week end is to be shorter than those previ ously held, every day will be crowded full, as shown by preliminary announce ments made by the program committee last night. Events now scheduled in clude two baseball games with O. A. C., dual varsity track meet with Univer sity of Washington, dual frosh meet with O. A. C., departmental exhibits, canoe fete, prom, campus day, burning : of caps, tug-o-war. The usual circular letter to prospect ive preppers is not included in the ac tivities of the publicity committee this year. This was abolished as being an ineffective means of reaching the high school students. All efforts are cen tered on publicity in the various high school and town papers throughout the state at the present time. Colored window cards and posters will be sent broadcast within the next two or three weeks. The canoe fete committee is urging all houses to start work on their floats. Names of the floats are to be in by May 1. The various committees for Junior Week-end are all well organized, and are now actively working on the event. Finances are being carefully arranged for this year. Each committee chair man is given a certain limit of ex penditure. HOME-BUILDING, DEAN’S TOPIC Dean Ellis F.

DR.C.J.WOODBURT (IVES GLIMPSES OF LIFE OF EMERSON Great American Writer Is Eulogized by Lecturer in Opening Address WORKS LIKENED TO BIBLE Poet-Essayist Was Greater as Man, Is Opinion of His Close Associate Rambling on in true Emersonian style, and allowing his thoughts to flow at ran dom in giving a sincere characterization of Ralph Waldo Eemersou as he knew him, Charles J. Woodbury, lecturer, and onetime associate of the poet-essayist, re cited some reminiscences of the scholar’s' personal life before a gathering in Vil lard hall where he lectured yesterday af ternoon. Mr. W'oodbury, who will be the assembly speaker this morning, eulo gized the great American scholar from the standpoint of an intimate knowl edge of his methods and ideals. He picturized vividly the habits of the man, and attempted to make him stand out dif ferent from other figures iu literature, both in style and purpose. Man of Honest Effort Mr. Woodbury pointed out that Ralph . Waldo Emerson was a man who made an honest effort to stand on his own feet.[ lie was not bothered or otherwise em barrassed by adverse criticism. ‘ ‘ Mr.: Emerson was an easy mark for the critics,” said Mr. Woodbury. ‘‘He paid' no attention to their upbraidings, and even refused to answer them. To others1 he replied, ‘ You tell your ideas as you see fit aud I will express myself in my own way. The reader will in the end judge for himself.’ ‘ ‘ Mr. Emerson is the originator, the emancipator, the liberator of one’s own thought. Do not expect from him or ganic argument. Emerson is to be read as is Scripture—a few passages at a time. One challenges the soul, the other the mind. ’ ’ Did Not Write for Publication In speaking of the methods which Emerson used in the construction of his writings Mr. Woodbury said, ‘‘He never wrote anything for publication nor did he believe in writing for occasions. AH his works were prepared originally for lectures. He refused to alter his orig inal manuscripts for the Bake of unity of subject. He never would be the victim of a continuous ‘ firstly, secondly and third ly. ’ Nevertheless his writings have thought and power. He Baid himself that usually the first expression of thought was the best. He told me ‘ a perfect expression of condensed thought will scan! But, oh, how he himself would alter his own composition. Drop by drop was how he changed his water to wine. He finally got his expressions into the choicest language. ’ ’ Did Not Care for Influence Mr. Woodbury wants the influence which Emerson exerts to be universally recognized. ‘ ‘ Emerson did not want to be an influence, ’ ’ he said. ‘ ‘ If he could have given love to the heart and spirit to the soul by keeping himself out, he would have done so. He did not want there to be an Emersonian school, nor did he desire disciples. But Emerson must have exerted an influence. Haw thorne told Sanborn that he must ‘get away from Concord and the pernicious influence of Emerson.’ Emerson was contagious. Hawthorne and Emerson could never agree. Their one walk to gether was a failure. But when Haw-! thorne lost the custom house Emerson pitied him and invited him and his fam ily to live with him and his wife. He could never take any one into intimacy, but he was loyal to his literary associ ates.” Emerson a Great Commoner Mr. Woodbury picturized Emerson as a great commoner interested in all types of men. He went about conversing with farmers and blacksmiths and haunted the footsteps of the country storekeepers. “These men do not know what to do with their thoughts,” said Emerson, “but I do.” “First of all,” Baid Mr. Woodbury in summing up, “Emerson was greater as a man. He stood upon the independence! and originality of a man. That was his matrix. ” Mr. Woodbury will give another talk on Emerson at the assembly today. He will leave for Whitman College tonight, which will be his next stopping place on his tour into the East.

PLEDGING ANNOUNCED I Pot and Quill elects Nancy Wilson to j membership. Breach of Promise Suit Lost; All a Joke Insists Defendant “We find for the defendant. A. wo man who haw never been kissed haw never ■been engaged.” So read the verdict turned in by the jury after only ten minutes deliberation in the breach of promise suit instituted by Mary Etta Shelton against Lyndon Meyers, which was tried Tuesday evening in the circuit court room of the county courthouse. “It was all a huge joke,” said Lyndon Meyers when placed on the stand, “and Miss Shelton was the only one who took it seriously.” He admitted that he had j given her a ring, but had done so in a | joking manner and stated that he had paid only ten cents for the ring. “I hate to spend the money, but it is worth ten cents to become engaged to a good girl,” Meyers is alleged to have said when buy ing the ring. He maintained that at no time had he ever kissed or caressed her, and that he never took her to any social ' function, saying that he surely would not have failed to do either of these things, nor would he have given her a ten-cent ring if he really intended to marry her. The plaintiff’s witnesses, however, des cribed the scene in Professor Warner’s Procedure III class March 8 when Meyers placed the ring on Miss Shelton’s finger, and even repeated the ardent declaration of love which he is said to have uttered. They also told of the intense mental suf fering through which Miss Shelton passed after Meyers failed to keep his appoint ment with his “almost bride” a^d the “minister” at the Anchorage March 24. An atmosphere of solemnity pervaded the court room during the trial, ami the spectators were several times visibly af fected by the recital of the suffering the plaintiff had undergone. One of tho most touching scenes of the whole trial was enacted when Miss Shelton first took the stand and between sobs told how her life had been ruined by the conduct of the defendant. The chopped onions she had concealed in her handkerchief added greatly to her suffering. William Coleman, attorney for the de fendant, attracted favorable attention by his pointed, concise questions, as did Lo Roy Anderson, for the plaintiff. Both students were complimented by Judge Skipworth on their handling of the case. Particularly eloquent was Anderson’s plea to the jury, his description of the enormity of Meyer’s offense in so un feelingly tricking the plaintiff bringing tears to her eyes and blushes to the cheek of the defendant himself.
