SUBJECT OF PLOY
Successful Cast Will Portray
Barries’ Scotch Romance
on April 25, 26, and 28
History, mystery and society plays
can interest some of the people all of
the time, and all of the people some
of the time, but it takes a whimsical
Scotch love story written by the inim
itable Barrie to interest all of the peo
ple all of the time.
The professor, who has fallen in love
with his secretary presents not an al-;
together new situation, but this pro-1
fessor is new in his total failure to
realize the cause of his indisposition,
and leaving town to recover, he takes
along the delightful cause of his dis
The Eternal Triangle
Also a triangle is nothing new, but
when the “other woman” tells “the
woman” of her weapons, puts them
right into her hands with detailed in
structions on how to use them, it is
exceedingly interesting and a little
novel, l-’or the other woman is as ig
norant as is the professor as to the
cause of his failing health.
But one person there is who knows—
and that is the cause herself. She
doesn’t refuse to go on the trip, nor
does she refuse the weapons so care
fully placed in her hands by her rival,
and then come the complications that
are always necessary.
Today is the day of all-star casts.
One star used to be enough but not so
in this sophisticated age—and Guild
Hall has been keeping apace of the
times. If Guild Hall had a name like
“Lyric,* “Bialto” or “Rex” the names
would be blazing out in many little
electric lights for the cast as announced
includes Fergus Reddie, the man of the
Seven League Dramatic Boots, Char
lotte Banfield who made Cleopatra and
Grandmother Squeers famous, Lorna
Coolidge whose Irish brogue insin
uates ancestors, Star Norton who has
made many successes, Art Johnson who
makes better parts out of good ones
and good parts out of poor ones, Vorn
Fudge, famous for his comedy roles,
and others of equal ability.
Company Is Praised
In the last Guild Hall production,
“La Malquerida,” a dramatic triumph
of a very spectacular sort was achieved.
Critics gave it as their opinion that
the play put tho University Company
on a high artistic level, that it was
one which required much in tho way of
mature understanding and sympathy,
much in character portaryal, and in sus
pense and amosphere. To Darrol Lar
sen and Charlotte Banfield goes the
maximum of praise, but every indi
vidual member of the cast played up
in a finished way.
The Professor’s Love Story will be
produced on April 25, l’(> and 28.

in correspondence courses of the Uni
versity, according to Dr. Dan E. Clark,
of the extension division.

of papers sent in.

ARCHITECTS WILL 1
STUDY FIVE YEARS:
New Requirements of Course
In Effect Next Fall;
A new five-year architecture course
with the professional degree of bache-1
lor of architecture instead of the present
four-year course with a bachelor of
science degree is the plan drawn up by
Dean Ellis E. Lawrence and professors
of the school of architecture and allied i
arts. It was approved by the faculty at
their last meeting. The system will be
instituted next year, with the beginning
class, though this year’s freshmen may
graduate under the present plan if they
desire. The use of the point system will
be one of the features of the new ar
“The five-year course with the pro
fessional degree means raising the stand
ard of professional education very mark
edly,” said Dean Lawrence, in outlining
the change. “Then, too, the course will
be more flexible, built to fit the partic
ular training and capability of each
The use of the point system in design
will put the work on a more individual
basis, since men who have had previous
experience or have special talent will
not be held back by beginners. In the
same way beginners are not at the dis
advantage of being judged on the same
problems as more experienced men.
Cornell college ancl the University of
California have the five-year system.
The Boston Institute of Technology starts
next year on a similar plan. The course
hero at Oregon will attempt to lighten
the annbal load carried by the student, to
gain a better relationship between cul
tured electives and professional subjects,
and to sufficiently train in advance de
sign to warrant the granting of the pro
fessional degree. The four-year course
at present schedules 218 hours, while the
first four years of the five-year course
schedules from 190 to 204 hours. The
five-year course offers, however, 21 pro
fessional subject hours not possible un
der the present plan, and a possible 237
to 249 total hours as compared to 218
with greater flexibility of electives.
The degree is awarded under eight
rules drawn up for the the school, an
interesting feature of which is the pre
sentation of a “Data Book” satisfactory
to the dean each year, including the
results of the student’s research in de
sign, history and ornament and prac
LIBRARY HAS NEW CASE
Addition to be Installed for Shelf List;
Douglass Desires New Stacks
M. IL Douglass, librarian, recently
returned from a visit to Portland, where
ho spent some time' investigating card
catalog cases, with the result that in
the near future a new 00 tray case will
be installed at the Library for the
shelf list. The present tray in use for
the shelf list will be used for the ex
tension of the dictionary catalog, the
addition of new books to the library in
the past making the change necessary.
ilr. Douglass states that the library
is hoping that within the next two
weeks a decision may be reached by
University officials which will permit
the building of two new stacks for
books in the library, which the in- i
creased number of books demands.
DANCING CLASSES START
Production will be Staged in Guild Hall:
In May to Demonstrate Work
Classes in educational interpretative
dancing, under the supervision of Miss
Lillian Stupp, are still open to those

to upperclassmen ,as well as freshmen
and sophomores who are taking the
work for credit. The classes meet at
11 and 2 o’clock on Monday, Wednes
day and Friday.
This type of work was put in the
schools for the first time at the Univer
sity of Wisconsin about six years ago,
but this is the first year the work has
been given here.
A demonstration will be given by the
class on Thursday and Saturday, the
tenth and twelfth of May in. Guild
Ilall Theatre. About 36 girls will take
part in the production, which will be
given to show the type of work. There
will be a special number “Dream Gate”
by members of the class. Senior phy
sical education majors in the course
called “Theory of Dancing” are man
aging the production, and ticket sales
will begin about the last week in April.
About the third week in May dane
ing tryouts for honors will be held.

Rebec Praises Emerald
in Letter from Paris
The following paragraph is quoted
from a personal letter to a faculty mem
ber from Dr. George Itebec, dean of the
graduate school, who is now in Europe.
He writes from Paris:
“I was pleased to get the Emerald. As
I must have told you last year, and as
I told some of the staff themselves, the
Emerald has undergone a remarkable
evolution in the last few years. Making
all allowance for the defieiences and im
maturities which you yourself mentioned,
I have felt it was now the best -Ameri
can college paper that it was my privi
lege to come in contact with. The boys
and girls are using some mind and heart
in it; and—wha,t, in spite of the fashion
of sophistication, youth ought not to be
ashamed of—they are showing some glow
of intellectual and ideal ardor and as

COUPLE TELL ENGAGEMENT
Betrothal News Broken by Overturning
of Tiny Baskets Containing Flowers
The announcement of the engagement
of Marvel Skeels and Del Oberteuffer
at the Pi Beta Phi house Sunday was
the cause of a prolonged celebration
which began when the tiny pink bas
kets containing fbrget-me^nots wetre
tipped over and the cards concealed
beneath them revealed, and lasted until
late that night.
Because of the prominent place that
each has held on the campus, the en
gagement was especially interesting.
Marvel Skeels is a' senior in th^
school of music, a member of the
Glee Club, Mu Phi Epsilon, Kwama,
and was awarded the Gerlinger Cup in
her Junior year. Del Oberteuffer, Beta ;
Theta Pi, a well known trackman, will j
probably be always best known in the |
role of Yell King Obie. Mr. Ober- j
teuffer is a senior in the department i
of physical education, is a member of j
To-Ko-Lo, Phi Delta Kappa and Friars.
