•“The Blessed Damozel” Main
Feature of Program for
Concert Friday
Interpretation of Sibelius’
“Valse Triste” to Be Given
by Florence Garrett
“The Blessed Damozel,” a lyric poem
which the famous New York composer
Frank Damroscli adapted to the original
poem of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s, with
music by Claude Debussy, is to be the
principal part of the program which
the Women’s Glee club will present at
their annual home concert, Friday eve
The cantata is beautiful because of
its broad tone qualities and voice blend
ing, and is by far the most difficult
thing the club has ever attempted. Jo
anna James, soprano, will sing the solo
parts of the “Blessed Damozel,” and
will be ably assisted by the ensemble.
The composition as a whole is magnifi
cent, having a general appeal, and it
is because of this that it was chosen
by the club for part of their program.
Claude Debussy is an exponent of the
modern French school of music, and
“The Blessed Damozel,” particularly
the prelude, is considered some of his
best known and nicest music. •
Evans to Direct
John Stark Evans, director of the
club, has been rehearsing the girls ev
ery day, and believes them capable of
putting on a program that is interest
ing and varied, and which will “run the
gamut of the serious and lighter veins
of music.”
Bernice Altstock, contralto,will be
one of the soloists of the concert, sing
ing Beach’s “Ah Love But a Day.”
In Sibelius’ delightful “Valse Trisie”
Florence Garrett will sing a running
solo part, while Ruth Akers will si’ug.
incidental solos of Dett’s“ Somebody’s
Knocking At Your Door.” A duet,
“Oh Lovely Night,” Offenbach, will
to be given by Gwaldys Keeney and
Vera Priee.
Virginia Owens Accompanies
The club is to be accompanied by
Virginia Owens, a pupil of Mr. Evans’
who studied in New York last year,
and who is a pianist of exceptional abil
ity. Miss Owens is to give two piano
solos, Sous Bois, Staub and Juba Dance,
Tickets for the concert are on sale
at the Co-op, and have been placed
within the reach of everyone, with a
charge of 75 cents for reserved seats
and 50 cents, general admission. Since
the glee club is one of the more prom
inent student body organizations, the
concert is under the auspices of the
associated students, and the receipts of
the concert are turned over to the stu
dent body for the general expenses of
the club.

Commerce Faculty Will Take
Part *n Convention
The school of business administration
will play an important part in the nine
teenth convention of the Oregon State
Retail Merchants association which is
scheduled to meet in Eugene the first
of next week, February 19, 20, and 21.
Members of the association who attend
the convention will have an opportunity
to attend classes at Oregon for three
days and take work in the commerce
This convention will bring together
the leaders in i-etail selling throughout
the state. The fact that this is the nine
teenth convention and the first to be
almost entirely of an educational na
ture is a matter of interest to those
who are planning to attend, and, ac
cording to Eugene business men, they
are looking forward eagerly to “going
to school.”
That part of the convention program
in which the school of business admin
istration is to feature is in charge of
Dean E. C. Robbins. The principal
speakers or “teachers” who will address
the meetings which will be held in the
Commerce building, are Professor F. A.
Nagley, Professor C. L. Kelly, and F. E.
The 1923 year book of the associa
tion, which contains the program for
the convention, has pictures of Dean
Robbins, Mr. Nagley and Mr. Kelly. A
tribute is paid Dean Robbins in the
book for the initiative he has taken
to make this educational program pos
sible for the convention. It states that
the program is such as has never before
been enjoyed by association members
at their annual conventions.
The Oregon State Retail Merchants
association has grown up out of a need
felt by retail merchants throughout the
state for cooperation and mutual help
rulness in retail business. It was pre
ceded by local organizations in the dif
ferent communities of the state, which
united to form the present state asso
ciation. The first purpose of the or
ganization seemed to be only to hold
conventions, but more recently it has
broadened its field of activity and to
day it stands as the agency which unit
es the various divisions of retail trade,
going more specifically into dry goods,
hardware, department store, shoe deal
ers, feed and fuel, and men’s wear deal
ers retailing.
Dr. H. S. Wilson of Berkeley will be
on the campus Monday, February 19,
and will lecture before all students in
the school of education. The time
is to be announced later. Dr. Wilson
is superintendent of public schools of
Berkeley. He is a graduate of the Uni
versity of Indiana, and of Columbia
As a lecturer, he is in wide demand,
and he has been engaged for summer
school sessions by various colleges, for
the coming three years.
Philosophy Instructor Believes
‘Up Stream9Was Misrepresented
By Norman Byrne
(As explained in the preface to the
following letter, the Emerald recently
carried an editorial calling the atten
tion of the students to Ludwig Lewis
ohms hook, “Up Stream.” Later it
was learned that several graduate mem
bers of the faculty were not pleased with
the criticism, and Mr. Byrne, instructor
in the philosophy courses, was invited to
write an article in the form of a com
munication, setting forth his reaction to
the editorial and to the book.—Editor.
About a week ago the Emerald pub
lished an editorial in which attention was
called to the book, “Up Stream,” by
Ludwig Lewisohn, and readers were ad
vised to be careful about accepting its
conclusions without due consideration.
“Up Stream” is an unusually interest
ing book, both on account of its view
point and its rather startling conclusions
regarding some of our present institu
tions. If we are told to “look out” and
“be careful” before accepting any of
these, reason must be given. There are
three given in the editorial. We ar told
to remember, first, Lewisohn’s lack of
sympathy with American institutions:
second, his attitude during the war; and

Claire Keeney, Director of
Production, Has Players
Doing Their Best
“Come Out of the Kitchen”
Slated for Heilig Tomor
row Night
The children of an old aristocratic
southern family motivated by love for
the old colonel, their father, taking the
positions of maid, butler, and cook,
and renting the family home to provide
funds for the ailing colonel’s expenses,
is the theme of A. E. Thomas’ “Come
Out of the Kitchen,” a delightful com
edy to be presented by Mask and Busk
in tomorrow night at the Heilig.
The cast is comprised of the cream
of the campus dramatic talent, all the
members having appeared in good roles
in Guild hall productions. Claire Keen
ey, director of the play is well known
on the campus for his clever character
Loma Coolidge Stars
Lorna Coolidge, playing in the title
role, does some of the very best work
she has done this year, portraying the
fascinating Olivia Dangerfield with all
the charm she possesses. And when
Olivia is forced to act as the Irish cook,
Jane Ellen, Miss Coolidge wins the
hearts of all with her delicious brogue
and versatility.
Vern Fudge as the gentleman from
the North who rents the old home of
the Dangerfields, falls in love with the
pretty Jane Ellen and is baffled by the
tangled stories his servants tell him,
shows his ability to play a straight
part as well as his usual character parts.
Vern Fudge has played in Guild hall
to enthusiastic audiences for the past
three years.
Katherine Pinneo scores a great tri
umph in the role of the portly ponder
ous Mandy, black mammy in the fam
ily, surpassing even her interpretation
of Addeliney Bowersox in “The Rag
gedy Man.” Miss Pinneo has an indiv
idual manner of acting and does com
edy roles especially well.
Virgil Mulkey taks the part of the
real estate agent and friend of the
family who is quite Unwillingly mixed
m the mirth-provoking situations. Dar
rel Larsen, also well known in the de
partment, furnishes amusement as the
genial Mr. Tuck, a lawyer and friend
of the Yankee from the North.
Others Do Well
Elizabeth Robinson and Star Norton
play well together as the mother, am
bitious for the marriage of her daugh
ter, and the daughter, unwillingly the
object of the mother’s managing.
Alfred Meyers and Ted Baker are
the two sons of the family who find
difficulty in their domestic positions
and add to the fun.
Tickets are on sale in all the living
organizations on the campus and the
play will be ran one night. Mask and
Buskin has established its reputation
in the past and will uphold it in the
present production, is the opinion of |
Claire Keeney, who is enthusiastic j
about the cast.
Oregon Boasts One of the Scattered
Survivals of Big Tree Species
Covering Ancient World
Most of the evergreen trees which
line the pathways of the campus have
nothing remarkable about them, and
are thought of by the student, if they
are thought of at all, as pleasant shade
providers or bits of scenery. There is
one tree, however, which has a true
claim to distinction.
Near the entrance to Villard on the
east side of the building, stands one of
the few remaining sequoia trees that
are left in this part of the country,
from a once vast range extending over
Asia, Europe and North America. To
day this species is confined to a few
isolated groves along the western slopes
of the Sierra mountains, in California.
The tree on the Oregon campus is be
lieved to be nearly the only one in Ore
gon, sinte they do 'not grow naturally
north of the southern boundary of the
state, and was set out by the Univer
sity about 1883 or ’86.
This species of tree is called the
“Sequoia Washingtoniana” or “Big
tree ’’and is the largest known species
of plant life. Mature sequoias often
attain the height of 350 feet, a dia
meter of 30 feet, and live to the ripe
age of 5000 years, or more.

Graduates Ask for Increase
of Representation in
Executive Group
Need of Greater Influence on
University Affairs Felt
by Old Students
All of the University alumni consult
ed yesterday afternoon as to their opin
ion on the question of adding aliynni
members to the Executive council spoke
heartily in favor of the proposition.
The original question of adding more
alumni to the council, arose from a feel
ing among the graduates of the Uni
versity throughout the state that the
alumni of the institution are not ade
quately represented in that body, and
that they ought to have more weight
in determining the policy of the Uni
versity, especially in regard to ath
At present the council is composed of
six students, four faculty members and
one alumni member. Karl Onthank, sec
retary to the president, is present on
the council in a dual capacity, that of
alumni member and also faculty mem-!
Provision Made in 1920
This is in accordance with the pass
ing of the new student constitution in
1920, which provides that thore shall
be one faculty member on the council,
who shall also be a graduate of the
University. The general opinion of the
alumni throughout the state is, how
ever, that Onthank by very virtue of
his position, which holds him constant
ly on the campus, represents the fac
ulty view of the situation, and that
therefore they are represented on the
council, in reality, only by Del Stan
nard, the present alumnus member. This
is in a proportion of six students to
four faculty members to one alumnus.
The alumni feel that their advice in
regard to the policy which the Univer
sity shall pursue, especially in athletics,
is of value, since they represent the
off-campus point of view, while, natur
ally, the student and faculty elements
see things from a campus point of
Graham Favors Change
David Graham, ’05, expressed himself
yesterday as being in favor of adding
two more members to the council, thus
making a total of three alumni mem
bers on the council and bringing the
whole membership of the council up to
“I believe that the alumni should
be more generally represented on the
council,” he said, “and I think that two
more members should be added to the
council rather than one only, for if only
one is added the membership of the:
council is brought up to twelve. Such a
number permits a deadlock of six and
six on any important question, while;
if two alumni members are added, the
membership of the council is brought
up to 13, a number which automatically
prevents a deadlock and gives the alum
ni a better representation.”
Athletic Needs Involved
Dean Walker, ’13, said, “I agree with
the other members of the alumni asso
ciation who have been consulted by the
Emerald, that two members of the
alumni should be added to the one that
is already on the council. I agree with
that stand, however, only as far as it
goes. I think, certainly, that there
are many other phases of the situation, |
to be discussed, involving our entire
athletic situation, which I cannot dis- j
cuss here.”
Harold White, ’20, and A. R. Tiffany,;
'05, were consulted in the matter, and j
both agreed with these statements, as;
to the placing of two more members
of the alumni on the council. Tiffany,
especially, stressed the fact that the
alumni were able to present advice j
which might in many cases prove val- j
uable, because of its off-campus point J
of view.

Dr. Packard Says Curio Lent the Geol
ogy Department by State Fire Mar
shal Is Freak of Erosion
Indians—proud warriors who roamed
the plains of Oregon long before the
first caravans of the white man trekked
westward—are about to have thrust
upon them another of the degrading oc
cupations of civilization. The- depart
ment of geology is now in possession
of evidence supporting the belief that
ages ago members of the Indian tribes
were cobblers.
The curio recently loaned to the geol
ogy department by Horace Sykes, state
fire marshal, who is interested in pale- i
ontology and geology, resembles a pet
rified human foot. Dr. Earl R. Packard
of tlle geology department, an author
ity on paleontology, has made a careful
study of the stone foot and has arrived
at the conclusion that it is a natural
curiosity, a freak of erosion, which was
utilized by the aborigines in making
moccasins. The stone is apaprently an
igneous rock and a close examination
of the foot-shaped curio shows that the
toes part ha been chipped a bit. Dr.
Packard be reves the Indians were at
tracted to the rock by its odd shape
and after rounding out the toe a bit,
used it as a last for making foot-wear.
Dorothy Hall Cast in Lead of
Spanish Tragedy
“La Malquerida,” the Passion Flow
er, being rehearsed by the Senior Com- j
puny at the same time that work is in
progress for “The Three Sins” by the
Junior Company, will strike an entire
ly new note in campus dramatic produc
tions. Full of tense moments and per
vaded by an atmosphere of impending
doom, the story offers unusual opportun
ities for acting.
The low soft musical voices of the
senoritas and senoras in discussion at
the opening of the play are in sharp
contrast to the shots speaking in the
swift staccato of the Spaniard mad with
love of the daughter of Eaimunda, Aca
cia, the Passion Flower. Acacia her
self, the unfortunately loved one, re
sponsible for all the disaster and sor
row that comes to the house, and yet
entirely innocent of it, remains in the
memory, strangely silent in most situa
tions, fiery in her denunciations of the
man who has brought unhappiness to
them all, and wistful throughout. Dor
othy Hall has been cast in the title
Esteban, the stepfather of Acacia,
the object of her hate, is a role that
requires especially good acting, and will
be portrayed by Darrel Larsen. Char
lotte Banfield, famous for her versatil
ity and claiming a range from Cleo
patra in “Caesar and Cleopatra” to
Grandmother Squeers in “The Raggedy
Man,” will play the mother in this pro
Holmes Bugbee, fast winning laurels
in minor parts, will interpret Rubio,
servant of Esteban. Elizabeth Robin
son, who will appear as Juliana, Rai
munda’s servant, incessant talker and
maker of irrelevant remarks, performs
well the difficult feat required in the
introduction of the comedy element
into a tragedy of this type.
Other members of the cast are Gas
para, Helen Park; Bornabea, Portia
Kidwell; Dona Isabel, Kate Piuneo;
Engracia, Asteria Norton; Fidela, Pat
ricia Novlan; Milagros, Katherine Wat

Oregon’s Prospective Track
Team Will Have Strength
in Veteran Sprinters
Better Performances Than
Ever Expected of Koepp
and Oberteuffer
By Wad Shirley
Persons who are acquainted with the
track situation for the coming season
are chiefly concerned about the pro
babilities of developing men to com
pote in field events. With the excep
tion of Balph Spearrow, there appears
to be none capable of carrying off con
ference honors.
If general interest means anything,
then it is probable that Coach Bill Hay
ward may be able to put out some win
ners. There are more than 100 candi
dates out threo times weekly, which
is perhaps the greatest number ever as
sembled at Oregon for track this early
in the year. But then Bill is going to
have his hands full. Upon him falls
the burden of coaching both varsity
and freshman teams. Last year Hank
Poster took care of the yearlings, leav
ing Hayward free to coach the var
sity men. It takes a lot of individual
instruction and a lot of practice be
fore a man gets his form down as it
should be, and especially is this true
where the men have had little or no
previous experience.
Sprint Veterans Back
Oregon’s greatest strength lies in the
track events proper. Most of the vet
erans who are back made thoir numer
als on the cinder path. Their chief
concern is getting into condition before
the big meets roll around, and they will
not need as much coaching from Hay
ward as the new men.
Captain “Ole” Larson is back to de
fend the “O” in the dashes. Larson
is a 10-second man in the hundred, and
Irtt year defeated Vic Hurley of the
University of Washington on Hayward
field. “Ole” also does the 220 yard
dash in a creditable manner, second
among Oregon men only to Del Obor
“Obie” Going Strong
“Obio” won nearly all of his races
last year in the 220, and runs Larson
a close race in the 100 yard dash. He
is a conscientious worker and should
show some improvement over his last
year’s record.
Much is expected of Guy Koepp in
the two mile. Last season at Seattle
in the Northwest-Pacific Coast confer
ence meet, Koepp took second place in
the two mile, and incidentally broke
the conference record. Koepp says that
he did not start his sprint soon en
ough at the finish, or ho could have
done better. As it was he lost by only
a few feet.
Third Anniversary Number of Campus
Comic Magazine Is Resplendent
in Stu Biles’ Cover
“The best ever” is what “Doc” Brad
dock, editor, promises of the third an
niversary number of the Lemon Punch
which will appear on tlio campus tomor
row morning. From the bright cover
done by Stu Biles to the advertisements
on the last page, the staff have put in
clever and original features.
Among the attractions of this issue,
which is the fourth one of the year, is
the work of the art contributors. Ac
cording to Braddock, the greater part
of the cartoon work has been done by
Paul Carey, Bill Nettleship, Rolf Klep,
Claude Snow and Harry Skinner.
Francos Linklater’s article, “Flea, Fly,
Flu,” is, Braddock says, one of the best
things in the book. As may bo surmised
from the title, the humorist has chosen
the recent campus epidemic as the topic
for his “essay.”
A letter in R. W. Lardner style, done
by Braddock, and some witticisms of Stu
Sawtelle are other literary articles of
fered in this issue. The exchanges are
said to be as “laugh-provoking” as those
that have gone before.
An entirely new process in color work,
which has been adopted by a number of
prominent college publications, has been
used for this issue. The staff will not
divulge the secret about the new work,
but wish it to be a surprise until “Lem
my,” in all her splendor, appears tomor
row morning.
A number of names that formerly ap
peared on the staff head of the Ham
mer and Coffjn publication are not in
cluded in this issue because they failed
to contribute to the magazine, according
to the editor. Only the names of those
who helped to make up this issue are
| given.
