Famous Selections Listed In
Home Concert Program
George Hopkins, pianist, and Alberta
Potter, violinist, both of whom are
well known to Eugene audiences for the
high quality of their work, will be
the soloists with the University Orches
tra at its Home Concert to be given in
Villard Hall Friday night.
The piano solo in which Mr. Hopkins
appears is the* “Concerto in G-minor,”
by Saint Saens. A concerto is a composi
tion written for a single instrument
with orchestral accompaniment, an*!
this concerto of Saint Saens is consid
ered one of the most brilliant and pop
ular of any played on the stage today.
For the purposes of making the parts
more complete, a second piano will be
used as an accompaniment in addition
to the orchestra, and will be played by
Mrs. Aurora Underwood.
Its brilliance is the.most outstanding
feature of this concerto, requiring the
greatest of technical skill of the pian
ist. The concerto is of three move
ments. “The first has broad tonal
qualities,” said Mr. Hopkins. It is
powerful, stupendous, and overcast by
a richness and w’ealth of imagination.
A light scherzo characterizes the second
movement. The concerto is closed with
a fast, brilliant movement, which is par
ticularly effective and appropriate.”
Alberta Potter, violinist, is a senior
in the University, and is also of the
faculty of the school of music. Since
the orchestra first started its annual
tours four years ago she has been a
member, and has been soloist with it on
each trip. Newspapers all over the
state have praised her playing, and the
Portland Oregonian in particular has
published a very flattering review of
her work.
For her solo Friday night Miss Pot
ter will play the “Fantasie Appassion
atto,” of Vieuxtemps. This selection
was used by her on the trip of the or
chestra to five Coos Bay towns during
the Easter vacation, and was a favorite
with audiences there.
A former student of the University,
Miss Beulah Clark, now studying with
the extension division at Portland, will
tako the flute part with the orchestra
at the Home Concert. Miss Clarke stud
ied last summer in New York under
George Barriere, of the New York Sym
phony Orchestra, considered one of the
best flutists in the country, later tour
ing the entire country with an opera
company on a Lyceum circuit. She will
return to the University next year as
instructor of flute in the school of
The opening number of the program
is the “Carmen Suite, No. 1,” by Bi
zet. This has been made famous
through its “March of the Toreadors,”
which is known to everyone. Other or
chestral numbers are selections from
“The Firefly,” by Friml, and “Pag
liaeci,” by Leoncavallo.
Tickets for the concert are on sale
at the Eugene Music Shop, Kuyken
dall’s Drug store, and the Co-op. The

■with lanterns in faltering hands, peer
ing here and there in search of someone
who has fallen by the wayside, someone
who struggled to reach the shrine of
political supremacy, but who failed and
lies buried under the avalanche.
Friendly- hearts and hands go out to
him who has fallen and he is tenderly
taken back to the refuge where sym
pathy goes out to him as he tells of
his failing to reach the pinnacle.
In the coming pilgrims to the shrine
of Politica, someone is destined to fal
ter by the wayside. Fear not, brave
soul! You have not dared in vain. The
trail is rugged and rough, but if you
fail to reach the end, brave hearts will
sally from their sanctuary and gather
you in. There is always a haven from
the storm.
Lively Contest Carried On All Year;
Total Number for Present Term 291
The lead in the Emerald tip contest, ;
a contest among the members of the
Emerald staff in news tip3, has been
completely run away with by George1
Belknap, a freshman. Just to show
what could be done, he .has handed in
147 of the 291 tips turned in this term.
This is the largest number of tips that
has been turned in by one person in a
similar length of time’since the open
ing of the contest. ’ • .•
The two who take second and third
place in the contest so far are Gene
vieve Jewell, with 27 tips to her credit,
; and Emily Houston, with 19 tips.
The contest has been carried on all
: year and has caused a great deal of
lively competition among the staff
members. As the competition will
count in the consideration of candi
dates for the award of the Emerald
O’s at the end of this term, the con
test is growing even more interesting
as that time approaches.
Sales Appeal is Topic in April Number
of Western Advertising
Professor W. F. G. Thacher of the
University school of journalism has an
article entitled “A Baker's Dozen: The
Thirteen Points in Sales Appeal,” ap
pearing in the April number of the
Western Advertising magazine. The
subject matter deals with talking points
used in advertisements which can be i
classified logically undeit thirteen
heads, according to Mr. Thacher. These
points listed in their order in the ar
ticle are quality, usefulness, economy,
price, reputation, popularity, exclusive
ness, testimonials, guarantee, profit,
service, limitation of supply or of time,
and ease of purchase.
The classification is not water-tight,
of course, Mr. Thacher says, no classi
fication ever is. Nor is there any at
tempt to include in the article the
methods of attention-getting and in
terest-production, such as contests, tea
ser advertisements, slogans and the like
according to Mr. Thacher’s comment
in the article.
This article was the third of Profes
sor Thacher’s to appear in Western Ad
Y. M. C. A. Receives $96 for Sweets;
Funds Will be Used to Improve Hut
The candy counter which wa3 install
ed in the Y. M. C. A. hut two terms
ago for the convenience of the boys,
has proved to be an unusually success
ful asset to the hut, as far as finances
are concerned. In the last two terms
the counter has brought in profits
amounting to $96. This money will be
put back into the Y. M. C. A. for im
provement of the hut and to furnish
new games and amusements for those
who use the hut for their recreation
dwelling on the campus. Plans are set
for the building of a new ping-pong
table out of the profits of the candy
counter. All the daily papers will be
purchased and numerous other luxur
ies will be provided from the fund.
There remains $50 to be spent on these
things, the other $46 has been used to
clear up a few expenses on the hut.
A meeting will be held a little later
in the term to designate upon what the
remaining $50 will be spent.
The student body should be prepared
for a lively time on Saturday night,
according to Ed Tapfer, stunt duke of
the Oregon Knights. That organization
is making extensive plans for a dance
to be held in the Woman’s building for
the benefit of the entire student body.
“We are getting the best music we can
for the occasion” says Tapfer, “and
we hope for a large representation
from the students.” An admission of
75 cents will be charged, the proceeds
to go to the Oregon Knights.
Norma Talmadge has given the
screen one of the most gripping dramas
of a decade in her picturization of
“Within the Law,” the First National
picture which opened a two day en
gagement at the Rex Theatre last night.
“Within the Law” enjoys the repu
tation of being the most successful
stage drama ever produced. If present
indications are any criterion, it will be
an even greater success on the silver
sheet, for as a moving picture it is
more moving entertainment.
