Russian Pianist Will Appear
November 13; Has Gained
Fame in Europe and America
Two Other Great Artists and
Concerts by Glee Clubs and
Orchestra Are Scheduled
Josef Lhevinne, famed Kussian pian
ist, and termed as “the greatest living
master of the pianoforte,” will open the
concert season of the University of Ore
gon Tuesday evening, November 13.
Lhevinne has appeared extensively in
Europe and in many of the large cities
of the United States where his success
has far surpassed all expectations and
his future promises to be even more
brilliant than his past.
Anna Case Is Next Number
The next concert will be given Decem
ber 7 by Anna Case, one of the first
American singers, having received
training only in America, to win rec
ognition. She triumphed over the stem
tradition that foreign training is nec
essary, and has become one of the fore-'
most singers of her time. Miss Case
is a beautiful woman possessing a won
derful clear soprano voice. She has been
very successful, but her song recitals are
unsurpassed, for it is then that shg dis
plays at its height all the artistry of
her voice and the charm of her person
Famous Violin Celloist Coming
Another coneert which is being greatly
anticipated is that of the Belgian ar
tist, Jean Gerardy, on March 26. Ger
ardy is considered the master of the
violincello. Six years ago while on a tour
he established himself permanently in
the hearts of the American public, but
it is said that the Gerardy of today even
surpasses the Gerardy of six years ago.
His four years of active service in the
world war, and the two years he spent
in rest and study have worked wonders
in the further development of the great
Belgian master. He is said to be ar
tiscally a genius, and personally fasein
Vecsey Will Play March 23
Herenc Vecsey, who holds an ex
alted position among the violinists of
the day, will appear in concert Tues
day, April 22. He is not only a su
preme violinist, but a gifted composer
of great ability as well. Vecsey was
born in Buda-Pest on March 23, 1893,
and at the age of six commenced violin I
study under his father. His imazing
mastery of the violin astounded all the
musicians who heard him, and thfi sen
sation he created by his first public
appearance in Berlin was not unlooked
for. tie first appeared in America in
1907 as a child prodigy, and the finish
and maturity of his playing was greatly
marveled at. Several years later he
.again came to America, but as the ma-;
tured artist. He met with an over- j
whelming success, and his present tour
is proving even morfl successful than
those of previous years.
Glee Clubs and Orchestra Featured
The Women’s glee club, the Men’s
glee club and the University orchestra
are also three important factors on this
year’s program of entertainment for
Oregon students and people of Eugene.
Only the highest type of musical pro
grams are going to be featured by these
organizations. John Stark Evans, di
rector, has planned several excellent con
certs which will feature the combined
glee clubs.
The University Symphony orchestra
is under the direction of Rex Underwood,

G. H. Godfrey Will
Represent Campus
Chapter of S. D. C.
George H. Godfrey, a junior in the
; school of journalism, is the delegate tc
i the Sigma Delta Chi national conven
| tion from the campus chapter. He
leaves Eugene either Sunday or Mon
day, and will arrive at Minneapolis;
Minnesota, by November 18. This con
vention of men’s honorary journalism
fraternity will be in session on the
19th, 20th and 21st. Last year the
representative journalists gathered at
the University of Kansas, but the Uni
versity of Minnesota claims it for this
Representatives of the 38 active chap
ters and 8 alumni chapters will bo
present, together with the national offi
cers of the fraternity, the governor of
Minnesota, and the mayors of St. Paul
and Minneapolis.
The University of Toronto has re
cently petitioned for membership, and
it is expected that the group will be
recognized in time to send a delegate
to the convention, Mr. Godfrey said.
With the admission of the Canadian
chapter, the fraternity will assume in
ternational proportions.
Mr. Godfrey will go east by the
southern route through California and
Utah, returning the northern through
Spokane. He expects to stop in some
of the larger cities on the way and
look over the newspaper field in vari
ous places.
'The Melodrama of China’ Title
of Speaker’s Address
Today Oregon students are being
offered a rare privilege—the privilege
of hearing Joseph Washington Hall, or
Upton Close, as he is better known,
lecture on “The Melodrama of Modern
China.” Mr. Hall will speak before
the students at the assembly at 11
o’clock in the Woman’s building.
This is a lecture depicting Mr. Halt’s
own adventures and experiences during
his seven years’ stay in China as Eng
lish secretary to General Wu. The Vc
ture is said to be an intensely interest
ing and fascinating account of t ie hap
penings of modern China, told by a man
who himself figured in many of them.
Provinces Are Visited
Mr. Hall 's journeys have akrn him
into 14 provinces of China, Mongolia
and Siberia and among all clients of
society in these countries. That * s
experiences have been both varied and
exciting is shown by thrilling phiies
of Chinese development which na has
witnessed and frequently participi.ed
When he arrived in China, the dicta
tor, who had betrayed the revolution,
was losing his power, and ChiL.t »r.s
consequently i: more than the usual
When the Japanese penetrated into
Shantung, Mr. Hall sent our. the first
confidential and press reports upon
the Jap.anese plan to seize the province.
So precarious was his position as such
a correspondent that he found it ad
visable to write under a pen name. An
editorial error prompted him to adopt
the name of “Upton Close,” and he
still retains the name when writing
for publication.
Student Revolution Staged
In 1919, the so-called “Student Revo
lution” took place in Peking, and his
part in it can perhaps be best expressed
by his own statement that he limited
his activities only in so far as they con
flicted with his personal belief that a
“reporter is little good if he does not
live to tell his story.” This same revo
lution is said to have not only saved
China from Japanese control, but also
saved America from the danger of
Japanese possession of the resources
General Wu, to whom Hall was secre
tary, is characterized as the greatest

Senior Men Indulge in Hectic,
Heated, Hair-Raising Stunt
The race is on! And the trophy is
to be a trusty weapon of the type
modern warfare demands—a glittering
new safety razor. It is difficult to
give a fair estimate of the number of
entering senior men in the annual mus
tache race, since some of the varieties
are so pale and silky.
Yet it is an undeniable fact that
some are reaching the basketball stage
—five on a side, others the baseball
limit—nine on a side, but, oh, wonder
of wonders! A few dark and dashing
seniors may boast a full-sized football
mustaehe, with 11 on a side and a neat
part in the middle.
One senior man boasts that he can
hear the wind whistle through his when
„.he walks along in the frosty air. And
it’s only two weeks old! Some of the
men are watching with envious and
distrustful eyes the excellent start
which Jimmy Meek and Knut Digerness
have achieved. They are suspected of
using some secret potion, as Wenona
Dyer, senior class barber, firmly states
that the start was fair, all those begun
before the underclass mix having been
shaved off by Katherine Pinneo and
herself on that day.
A few men, afraid of being shown
up too much at the grand finale, have
already shaved theirs off of their own
accord, and are pretending indifference
to such trivial matters.
It is thought that at Homecoming
the jig will be up, and the bushiest,
tickliest, most luxurious one selected
by a board of competent judges.
Fifteen Men’s Organizations to
be Represented; Women En
ter 10 Groups for Contest
Adoption of Severance Tax on
Timber Is Chosen as Subject
For Intra-Mural Contests
The do-nut debate schedule for both
the men’s and women’s leagues, was
announced last night. Fifteen men’s
organizations and 10 women’s groups
are listed to enter the campus contests.
The men will hold their debates on
November 14 and 15. The women will
debate on November 20 and 21. The
finals within each league are both
scheduled to come off the Tuesday
following Homecoming, November 27.
The final contest between the winners
in the women’s league and the win
ners in the men’s league to determine
the campus championship, will not be
held until the latter part of the term.
Question Is Selected
The question to be argued this year
is, “Resolved: that the state of Oregon
should adopt a severance tax on tim
ber.” At a meeting of forensic heads
last night, it was decided that all
constitutionality of such a law was
conceded, and that, therefore, all doubt
as to its constitutionality would be
eliminated in the doughnut debates.
The contests will be held in the Ore
gon and Commerce buildings, and will
start promptly at 7 o’clock. Faculty
i members will act as judges.

Will Cooperate With Churches in
Securing Speakers
The Advisory Board of the Y. M. C.
A. underwent a change Tuesday when
it.met at dinner at the Anchorage and
changed its siame and ejected five
faculty members to its membership.
The board will now be known as the
Bbard of United Christian Work of
the University of Oregon. Newly elect
ed members were W. E. Milne, A. B.
Stillman, John Siefert, Warrea D.j
Smith and Roger Williams, the last
two mentioned to fill the positions left
vacant by H. R. Douglas and Justin
The Board of United Christian Work,
as it now stands, will include boards
of education of the Baptist, Congrega
tional, Christian, Methodist, Episcopal
and Presbyterian churches. The Y. M.

Faculty Approve Petition of
Student Council; Ready
Cooperation Is Expected
Prominent Alumni of Oregon
and Stanford Will Speak
at Big Rally Friday Night
In response to a petition of the stu
dent council, the faculty voted last
night to grant Friday afternoon as a
I holiday. Because of the large number
of students who would be prevented
by afternoon classes from reaching
Portland for the rally and the noise
parade, this action was deemed advis
The faculty hope that the students
will respond to the action with good
spirit and will be back to a one hundred
per cent attendance at Monday classes.
Student body leaders, interviewed yes
terday, expressed the opinion that tho
students would gladly cooperate with
the faculty in this matter and return
for Monday classes.
Special Train to Run
In accordance with this new plan, a
special train will be run by the Oregon
Electric railway at 1:15 Friday after
noon, to reach Portland at 4. Some
students plan on going to O. A. C. to
the frosh-rook game before coming to
Portland for the Stanford clash. Jack
Myers, yell king, announced yesterday
that there will be a yell Reader at Cor
vallis for the babes’ game.
The Portland festivities will begin
with the rally for men at the Multno
mah Amateur Athletic club. It is re
quested that there be no hobnails at the
rally out of respect to the floors of
the clubhouse. Lyle Brown, ex-yell
leader of Oregon, will have charge of
this rally. Prominent alumni from Ore
gon and Stanford will speak. The yell
staff will be active in making the
meeting a live one.
Noise Parade Is Feature
The noise parade after the rally will
be the big event of the celebration
plans. Oregon will have the keys of
the city and the parade will be led by
the police and officials of Portland.
Like the campus Homecoming parade,
this parade will be characterized by
noise machines from the men’s housee.
The parade out to the field, at 12:30
Saturday, will be a success only if every
student turns out for it. The parade
starts from the Imperial hotel.
Stunts Are Colorful
Special stunts are being planned by
both Stanford and Oregon for the game.
There will be a serpentine between
halves by the Oregon students and
the chant will be sung. The Stanford
alumni are going to put on a mock
football game. A football team dressed
in women’s clothes will pass and kick
and crash the line in approved style.
The Oregon alumni are also planning
a stunt which they refuse to divulge
until the game. The yell staff of the
University are working on several
stunts for the game, outside of the
serpentine and chant, but these plans
are not yet complete.
The girls in the Oregon section are
to be equipped with colors and will
take part in a singing stunt, featuring
Oregon songs.
The Meier & Frank company of;
Portland are donating megaphones for
the game. These megaphones will be j
distributed among the rooters and will j
be printed with Oregon songs and yells. (
A large crowd of students are ex-;
pected to be in Portland for the week
end. A big attendance at the rallies1
as a result is the hope of the yell staff :
and committee.
Monthly Circulation Shows Decided
Increase Over Last Year; Many
New Books Purchased
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are
the busiest days at the library. On
Thursday business slows down a little
for the usual lull of Friday, Saturday
and Sunday.
An average of 300 books a day were
drawn from the library during the
month of October. For the entire month
there were 9,299 circulated, 6,447 of
them for home use. An increase of 20
per cent has been made this year over
the record of last October. The aver
age at that time was only 7,690 for
the whole month, with 4,947 for homo
use. Popularity of home reading books
increased 1,500 or 33 per cent, accord
ing to these recrods.
Not only is circulation growing, but
new books are being added at various
times during the year. Last year from
October to July there were approxi
mately 6,460 new books added.
Y. W. C. A. to Have
Gobbler Tea Room
at the Bungalow
Today the doors of the Y. W. C.
A. bungalow will bo thrown open
to the populace of the University
campus for the grand opening of
the “Gobbler” tea room at 1
! o’clock sharp. And such an open
I ing as it will be. There’ll be hot
fudge sundaes, mince pies, pumpkin
| pies, tea and sandwiches, and cin
namon toast for sale, and all at
prices that will suit any student’s
economical tastes.
. But it is not going to be only a
buy, eat and pay entertainment, for
there is to be an extra special musi
cal program. Mary and Katherine
Inwood will give selections on thq
violin and piano, Irene and Mary
Burton will also play violin and
piano pieces, Joyce Johnson i will
play a violin solo and Ruth Cochran
will give a piano solo.
The tea room is offering the en
tire student body a chance to help
raise funds for the infirmary li
brary, and to help in buying the
current magazines and papers for
use in the infirmary. For this rea
son the committee in charge of this
afternoon’s entertainment urges
everyone turn out and do his or her
bit towards a good purpose. The tea
room will be conducted from 1
until 6 o’clock, and it is felt that
these hours will give every student
ample opportunity to take in the
Chapman Absent Due to Death
of His Mother Yesterday
Owing to the death of his mother,
Harold Chapman, quarterback and
brains of the University of Oregon foot
ball squad this season, did not work cut
with the squad last night. Whether or
not, he will be in the line-up when the
varsity meets Stanford on Multnomah
field next Saturday is not known. In
the emergency that he should not par
ticipate, Moe Sax, right half-back, will
fill his shoes.
The importance of Chapman’s ab
sence in the Webfoot-Oardinal gaun can
not be overestimated. It is largely
through Chapman’s generalship that the
varsity rates what sho does in confer
ence standing and his absence may mean
a shake up in the entire lineup before
th> coming battle.
Iiactieo on Hayward field last qvfn
ing consisted of a short but vicious
scrimmage. Sax was calling signals for
the varsity, during Chapman’s absence,
and the'manner in which he threw the
varsity against the second stringers!
shows that he has the same ability at;
generalship as he displayed when he
piloted the Washington State eleven two j
years ago. BegardlesB of the fact that ]
the varsity line contained several subs,!
it showed unexpected offensive power. j
Wilson was stationed at center and
Shields at tackle. Bert Gooding was
working the other tackle. Gooding was
prominent last season for his good de
fensive work, but has not found himself
this year. Dick Reed, 220-pounder, has
been shifted to end. Reed is a hard,'
fast tackier. Anderson and Kirtley !
worked in the backfield. Kirtley seems
to have recovered from the several in
juries received in the Whitman game
and was running through the second
team lino with his old dash.
The regular mass meeting of the
Women’s league will be held in Villard
hall today at 5 o’clock. In addition
to the regular business of the league,
both Dean Dyment and Dean Esterly
will make short talks, and Jean Har
per will play a piano solo.
Friday’s Battle Will be Most
Difficult of Season; Babes
Much Lighter Than Rivals
Victory of 0. A. C. Yearlings
Over Columbia Held to be No
Evidence of Their Strength
Last night the freshmen took their
last heavy workout in their preparation
for the opening battle, which is com
ing off tomorrow on Bell field at Cor
vallis. The coaches are coznizant of
the fact that the rooks have a powerful
line and a versatile backfield and are
not taking tomorrow’s Btrugglo a bit
too lightly. From the reports, it
would seem that this will be the hardest
game that the youngsters will have to
play, harder even than the struggle
with the Washington freshmen.
Dope Favors Books
The only dope on the two teams, out
side of the weight advantage in favor
of the rooks, is that the Aggie fresh
men beat Columbia University, 14 to 0,
while the Oregon babes were able to
score but seven points on the Catholic
aggregation. There is another angle of
these two games that should be brought
to light, however, and that is that the
Portland outfit had the ball in the
rook territory several times and on
occasions threatened the rook goal while
in their tilt with the frosh, never once
were they able to push the ball past
Another thing that should be taken
into consideration is the fact that Wes
SchuTmeriek, who backs up the rook
line on the defense, is an ex-Columbia
University man and should be thorough
ly familiar with Clipper Smith’s style
of football. So, in spite of the fact
that the roc’ s did not open up to their
fullest extent, their victory over Colum
bia does not look so impressive as it
Adolph May Play End
It is probable that Bex Adolph will
get a chance to display his wares at
end in tomorrow’s game. He and Dills
are about on a par as far as ability
is concerned, but Adolph has quite a
superiority in weight, and weight is a
much neoded thing on the frosh line.
The youngsters have not sustained any
very serious injuries as yet, although
Fred Harrison, the frosh quarter and
punter, was not out in a suit last night
due to a wrenched knee. He will prob
ably be in shape to work his sharo of
the rook battle.
Indications do not point to a very
powerful aerial offense on the part of
the Beaver yearlings, but in case they
do spring the unexpected, Baz’s
secondary defense is well trained to
smear attempts to score via the aerial
route. That they have real line-plug
ging power cannot be denied and it is
altogether probable that they will
punch the frosh line for substantial
gains. When they get under the
shadow of the frosh goal, however,
they’ll need all of the line-smashing
ability that they can muster out.
Dr. Warren D.' Smith, head of the
geology department, addressed the
members of the Eugene Rotary club
Tuesday. His talk dealt with the re
sources of Oregon with particular
reference to the mineral resources. Dur

carried on investigations of the mineral
supplies of Oregon and he drew upon

Native of Korea Holds Hawaii
to Be Perfect in Every Way
“If on the whole earth people had
the same attitude 'as the people in
Hawaii, .there would bo no wars.” So
says Chi Sung Pil, native of Korea, who
is taking his senior year at the Univer
sity of Oregon.
Mr. Pil spent about a month in Hono
lulu this Bummer ,the home of his
parents for the last few years. And
he is quite sure that if there is a
paradise on earth it is most assuredly
located in Honolulu.
People are assembled there from all
parts of the earth, and they “live in
perfect peace and harmony,” he asserts
with genuine enthusiasm. The hospi
tality of the people is one of the
Hawaiian characteristics that he likes
best. Many times, the foreign student
said, has he been invited in to have
lunch with strangers who have espied
him walking by their house.
“The community spirit is always
fine,” he ardently insists. Though
there is, of ocurse, some race prejudice
between some of the many people liv
ing there, no “extreme hate” seems to
exist. It apparently is too perfect a
place for its inhabitants to harbor any
great hatreds; the weather too fine
and the country too beautiful. At least
that is this man’s explanation of the
harmonious atmosphere on the islands.
There are sp’cndid municipal build
ings and beautiful parks in Honolulu
made more lovely by the constant
