Another Tradition Gone
No candidates’ statements will be solicited this year!
If the political platforms which have formerly been announced
just prior to elections had any significance the Emerald would be
reluctant to discontinue the practice. But statements are usually
written by the candidate’s political manager. They have no meaning
since they are constructed with the one and only purpose of getting
votes. Experience shows that platforms are seldom carried out.
When the typical candidate is asked for a 100 word statement he
limits himself to half a column. It is usually scrawled on notebook
paper. Misspelled words are not uncommon. Half of the politicians
wait until ten o’clock and then wander to the Emerald office to
write their candidates’ views.
In view of these circumstances the Emerald believes that its col
umns are too valuable to waste, even for one day a year. There is
too much live news which would be displaced for this meaningless
propaganda. If any of the candidates believe that real issues are at
stake they will be allowed'space, but the Emerald will not counte
nance any such humorous exhibitions as have been enacted in years
ALPHA DELTA PI PLANS
MUSICALE FOR SATURDAY
Beulah Clark, flutist; Helen Harper,
Violinist, and Leona Maurton,
Contralto, Will Entertain
Throe hundred invitations to faculty
members and representative students
have been sent out by Alpha Delta Pi,
women’s fraternity, for a musicale
which they will give on Saturday night
at their residence on University street.
The affair, which is the first “at
home” of this nature to be given by
a women’s fraternity recently, is for
mal. A number of out-of-town alum
ni of Alpha Delta Pi plan to attend.
Talented girls, members of the organi
sation, are participating in the pro
gram. Beulah Clark will play the flute;
Helen Harper of Portland, the violin;
Kloiso McPherson, contralto, will sing;
Bernice Yeo will plyv the piano; Gwen
dolyn Lnmpshire, tin* violin; Leona
Mourton, contralto, and Olive Merry,
soprano, will sing and Meltrude Coe
will give a piano solo. The first five
girls are members of Mu Phi Epsilon,
women’s national music fraternity.
Miss Clark, Miss Mourton and Miss
Harper, who are not attending school
this year, will come to Eugene to take
part. Miss dean Harper, a sister of
Miss Helen Harper, will come with her
sister from Portland to accompany her
on the piano.
If plans made by the fraternity are
carried out, the musicale will be an
annual affair in the future.
ART STUDENTS TO PICNIC
Students on Week-end Party at Blue
River, Fishing and Hiking Trip
A snow fight in May was one of the
diversions of the upperclassmen of the
department of architecture, while on
the week end party at the ranch of E.
II. McAlister, professor of much attics
and astronomy. Five automobiles left
Eugene at .ti.'ld Friday and carried the j
fourteen students and four instructors
as well as enough food to last thru a
siege, to Blue river where the ranch is
Besides Professor McAlister, the stu
dents were accompanied bv Professors
W. R. B. Wilcox, Virgil O. Hafen, and
Eyler Brown, all of the school of arch
itecture and allied arts. Mr. Wilcox
was called back to Eugene on business
but the other instructors remained until
the return Sunday night.
A climb to the snow line resulted in
a battle of snow balls and some im
promptu coasting somewhat wearing on
the corduroys of the dignified seniors.
A number of snapshots were taken on
■ Saturday some of the party hiked to
Lucky Boy mine— a deserted mine in
the hills will a few abandoned build
ings. The others fished, and Professor
llafen contributed six fish to the ham
pers of food. Sunday they all motored
to Foley Springs, and returned.
COURSE OF RACE TO BE
ALTERED THIS SUMMER
Change Will Widen Stream Above the
Bleachers; Work Will Be Completed
by Fall, Says City Engineer
Work will not be started on widening
the mill-race until after the end of the
term, reports Harry Devereaux, city
engineer. Thus the silvery beauty of
the race on moonlight nights will not
be destroyed in the eyes of the pigger
by ungainly machineries of all sorts.
It is not definitely decided when the
work will begin, but it will be com
pleted by the fall.
When the work starts the race will
be widened above the bleachers on the
opposite side. That kink will be
straightened without touching the
trees which are across from the Anchor
age. The race will keep its present
course from that point.
On the side of the bleachers a 12
foot walk will be extended from the
pavement, and the bank down to the
race will start there.
Construction of a new bridge over
the race at Franklin Boulevard is to
be started in a few days. This will be
a roinforcd structure. The forms are
being built at this time.
FATHER O’HARA LECTURES
Giovanni Papini is Subject of Second
Talk at Newman Hall
Through his study of all the races
and philosophies of the world, and
through his fondness for the work of
the brilliant -Russian writers, Giovanni
Papini, who was introduced to Ameri
can readers by William James the psy
chologist, became interested in the Gos
pels which convinced him of the sound
ness of the religion of Christ, said
Rev. Edwin V. O'llara in the second
talk on Religion and Scholarship, re
cently at Newman hall.
Just as Chesterton, Shaw and Belloc,
are regarded as the literary leaders in
England today, so is Papini regarded
as the foremost writer in Italy, he said.
Papini believes that the sole solution of
the evils of the world is through the
transformation of the human soul, and I
that this can be brought about only
through religion, the most perfect and |
suitable of which, he believes, is the |
one taught by Christ. This belief led
him to write "Storia di Cristo,” which)
is being read in all parts of the world !
“Many of the passages of the book1
arc in a stylo similar to that of Ches- !
tertou, and indicate that Papini is a j
man of imagination and vision,” said
Father O'Hara. “The English transla-j
tion, b\ Dorothy Canfield Fisher, is '
beautifully done and shows what a
great literary artist Papini is. The
book is thoroughly enjoyable, and one
that can be picked up at Odd moments

Dr. R. L. Benson Tests
Stains in Murder Case
Blood tests made by Dr. R. L. Ben
son, of the University of Oregon school
of medicine, from stains found on the
clothes of George E. Whitfield, of
Clarke county, Washington, formed an
important link in the chain of circum
stantial evidence that convicted Whit

The jury recommended that he be
Dr. Benson testified at the trial that
he had made over 400 tests, because he
realized that a man’s life was at stake,
and was absolutely certain that the
stains were of human blood. The meth
od used in the test, he declared, were
standard all over the world and were
infallible. Whitfield was convicted of
killing 11-year-old Anna Nosko, of Bat
tie Ground, Washington.
